ACEMAN, from UC Berkeley and the University of Paris/Sorbonne, by way of Ole Miss, splits time bouncing from Paris to Northern California and home to NOLA to rest his bones, eat some of the finest food in the world and watch the world go by at the Cafe du Monde with Walker Percy, and good ole' boy Shelby Foote from Memphis . When the ACEMAN is in fine fettle he scoots to Ossie land to sneak a peek at the world down under, then it's a jump to the cleanest and brightest city in the world, Singapore, for some give and take with the hard working intelligentsia, then it's up to Hong Kong for the latest gossip, and going into the country of 5,000 years and one civilization called the Middle Kingdom visiting real folks in the ...More countryside and then onto Shanghai to gawk at the greatest capitalists on this earth. Then over to mother Russia to listen to the wind blow on great pipelines loaded with oil and gas to the west and the east to make the lost world alive again. Istanbul wants you to believe that there is an economic miracle somewhere in their midsts and then its on to Paris to spend some time with old friends of the Rebellion now running art galeries and private banks, still talking the trash of '68 while being the beourgoisie like their parents, but the only reminder of rebellion is to not marry and have babies. Hangin' out at Cafe Mazarin at rue Mazarine--courage mon frere, courage! Londontown is depressed and no fun anymore. Iceland is home to one of our biggest deals and home to a special artist who shares the Blue Lagoon with y'all.All nighter to San Francisco in what is now the backward city and back home to the farm in the sticks tasting the Napa Valley Merlot which is good this season. Intellectual mommas and papas are B Mandelbrot, Pareto, Fibonacci, Minsky and C. West Churchman who should have received the Nobel prize in econ in the mid seventies. The ACEMAN is CEO and CIO of ACE International Domaine/Private funds: ACE Jeanne D'Arc, ACE Pont Des Arts/Red Star, and ACE Agri-Terra Green Star; creating and managing private funds in raw materials, energy, gold, and logistics/pipeline delivery of agriculture and watching the trade of these materials move in one direction to North and South China as the manifest destiny to be the biggest GDP by year 2020 and we are going to profit from their stimulus to be number one. And so we wish we had the ability to make music like Allen Toussaint and Mose,blow like 'trane, paint like Caravaggio, and play rock guitar like Jimmie Page, do maths like Mandelbrot; we mention the following: Commerce is sordid...if it is a small affair in which one buys only to resell immediately what one has bought--Cicero; Fortune favors the prepared mind...Machiavelli; as a general rule, it is foolish to do just what other people are doing, because there are almost sure to be too many people doing the same thing--WS Jevons; revolution is no dinner party--Mao Ze Dong; Buy to the sound of cannons,sell to the sound of trumpets--NM Rothschild; Y'all have to have a dog in the hunt, if y'all want to make some money--ACEMAN's daddy; The past is becoming more and more unpredictable--Paris Graffiti. Ole Miss, desert devils, beserkley, Paris at rue Beaux Arts, nola, and under the volcano are where i come from and back to Paris and a side tour to Venice to see my friend francois pinault's gallerie at the old customs house. keep your powder dry and your pecker hard and money will flow and don't forget the greatest mathman to lead you the way to riches, b. mandelbrot, a toast to his genius and if y'all don't own coltrane's a love supreme, you ain't cool.
