    MSE Investor,

    Nice summary. Agree with your points below as well.

    BD Sec has been pointing out the last few days that Custodian Agreements will not be available to invest in the MSE until ETT lists on the MSE... and are pushing for ETT to list only on MSE this year and worry about international listing later.

    I suspect ETT won't list anytime soon. Folks in the government of Mongolia have made grasping failure from the jaws of victory an art form.

    * One caveat to your points is that folks now willing to invest in Mongolia can and will behave like vultures and scavenge on the cheap. Mongolia has failed to understood that the nature of their negotiating leverage, and cut it out from under themselves. Hope it changes.

    haiguike... my one question on China getting NatGas from Russia is, why bother?

    Russians have shown a propensity to play with their NatGas pipelines for various political ends with Europe... they'll do the same with China. Not something that a country should want to rely on.

    Stilldazed...

    Its a crazy system. I realize more and more that the hiring process of teachers does not include vetting a teacher's quality. Hope your wife is able to get a job soon as I'm sure student would benefit as well.

    Just published an article about SouthGobi's ongoing legal issues on ForbesAsia for those interested:

    Minnesota Media Fails Hometown Man In Mongolia http://onforb.es/Sp6AR9

    (yes, I know some who read this page may disagree with me, though feel free to tell me again... even though the history of this case parallels Mongolia's descent...)

    P.S. No one even commented here about Q12014 FDI being down over 60% year-over-year from Q12013? Getting quieter....)

    Thanks !

    Not "tired of Florida". My wife needed a teaching job and the school in Florida is "so good" (rolls eyes) that they were not interested in her and her Master's from University of Virginia (one of the best teaching programs in the country according to US News & World Report)... and then added insult to injury by saying they would not interview her now because none of them wanted to hire her before...

    She tried for international work to get me closer to the countries I cover and we landed in the UAE...

  • The Shutdown Bangkok Protests: Is Thailand A Safer Investment Than You Think? [View article]
    Military intervention has always been coming. It is tradition. In trying to understand how democracy works in Thailand I wrote this 500 word opinion:

    well... I don't know... I guess a book about the recent history of Mongolia would be titled "Opportunity Wasted" at the moment... there's still a chance they can either (a) turn it around or (b) be overcome by the inevitability that eventually the resources in the ground will be mined *and* help the economy... maybe...

    Last day at Milken Institute Global Conference. Just saw that NobelHouse favorited a tweet of one of my articles and got James Clavell goosebumps.

    Videos of every conference panel are available for free here: http://bit.ly/R4t3C5

    Who spoke on each panel is here (though if it says "by invitation only" there will not be a video): http://bit.ly/R4t0Gj

    Thank you Zchalres. Mind you, the above is dated material. My current work can be found here:

    I write more on the Forbes Asia site than this one now, and I am trying to write more often on both.
