APPLE ‘’some kind of Fruit Company”

Forrest Gump’s Investment in Apple would be worth $7 Billion Today, that’s why I’m a Business Angel and I decided to be one of the 1Trueid founders. In the 1994 Oscar-winning movie Forrest Gump, there’s a short scene in which Tom Hanks’ character opens a letter of thanks from Apple after his former military colleague and business partner Lieutenant Dan invested some of the profits from the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company in “some kind of Fruit Company.” If Gump was real and if he was still clinging on to his investment today, he could have a staggering 12 million shares in the Cupertino Company, … Continue reading APPLE ‘’some kind of Fruit Company”

Collaboration is the New Competition©

New forms of corporate collaboration can drive sustainability, and create better products and services. Leaders and organizations are acknowledging that even their best individual efforts can’t stack up against today’s complex and interconnected problems. They are putting aside self-interests and collaborating to build a new civic infrastructure to advance their shared objectives. Someone’s call it “joint impact” and it’s a growing trend in the most developed countries, and Italy again risk to lose the ‘’Big Picture’’ of competition, after having failed to gain from the opportunity of the €uro. Businesses banding together to learn from each other is nothing new: … Continue reading Collaboration is the New Competition©

A tea with John Maynard Keynes

The following conversation is based on the genuine point of view of John Maynard Keynes and about the ignorance about History that seems to pervade our leadership. Good afternoon John, thanks for your kind invitation, truly appreciated, where’s Lydia? Hi Emanuele, she has gone to see the backstage of a ballet , you know her old passion, but tell me what’s up in this century, I feel myself disoriented. You remember your words John? « The game of professional investment is intolerably boring and over-exacting to anyone who is entirely exempt from the gambling instinct; whilst he who has it … Continue reading A tea with John Maynard Keynes

The XXI Century Renaissance

Knowledge has is origin in our perception used to say Leonardo da Vinci, and a new awareness is shyly facing into the developed world, where the conjunction of metaphysic with mathematic is opening the doors of a new Renaissance. Kalos kagathos (Ancient Greek καλὸς κἀγαθός [kalos kaːɡatʰǒs]), of which kalokagathia (καλοκαγαθία) is the derived noun, is a phrase used by classical Greek writers to describe an ideal of personal conduct, especially in a military context. Its use is attested since Herodotus and the classical period. The phrase is adjectival, composed of two adjectives, καλός (“beautiful”) and ἀγαθός (“good” or “virtuous”), … Continue reading The XXI Century Renaissance

Tribute to JFK

In these hard days for the EU Union and his population, I’d like to send my personal tribute to President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Too many people don’t know what he did with his executive order n° 11110 dated 1963, immediately amended after his assassination from Lyndon Johnson. There’s also no need to explain it here, and I don’t want it too, who wants knows. Ok, maybe he wasn’t a Saint but who is? I just want to express my gratitude to him for that brave act, and my consideration for all the hugs his family missed, and that no one … Continue reading Tribute to JFK

Solar Hoax

Till now no one has done a serious study on the environmental impact of billions of solar panel, but in less than ten years we will face this problem. It may be another big market for the recycling industry? Most probably yes, and that’s’ good, but what’s insane it is the fact that at the end the so proclaimed green energy most probably it’s not so much green, at least with the actual technology. But we have time to improve; recycling at the end it’s always better than poisoning radiation, but not as good as wind, water, cold energy! Next … Continue reading Solar Hoax

Home #Vacuum Tax

It’s my opinion that sooner or later we’ll see a new tax named something like: Home #VacuumTax! This new duty, will be applied to all the owners of houses, apartment, villa, or whatever connected to real estate properties left empty. Like Tobin tax, don’t worry, it will be sound, because it will force banks and corporations to come into a real market where demand and offer will meet, and above all will force them to discard ugly habitat in favor of green quarters, trees, clean air. Mario, #Monti & #Draghi it’s my opinion but it may be your too, I … Continue reading Home #Vacuum Tax
