I am a South African who lived through the consequences when an inflexible ideology and irresponsible stewardship of an economy happen to characterize Governments policies. The Rand collapsed. Hyperinflation ensued and the quality of life took a unpalatable downturn. In my career I helped found several enterprises, managed one of them and served as a portfolio administrator. I lived in London, Zurich, Johannesburg and spent time in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia. Currently I am in the U.S but plan to move to Australia or Singapore to be closer to the center gravity in the inevitable shift from West To East.
