10.08.2016 : Wealth of Nations

The first decade of this century was dominated by the open borders for internationalization/globalization which was leading to an increase of wealth of those participating in liberal trade.

Now the BREXIT as well as restrictions within trade laws of Hungary, Poland, Romania as well as the trade conflict with Russia decreases the expectations of growth. Academia has failed to teach liberal social economics ! Unfortunately now national Emotio starts again to dominate Ratio ! "The European Retail Academy will nevertheless (and against that tendency) promote the exchange of human capital because this is the basic way for international understanding" Prof. B.Hallier stated in a personal message to his member-universities.

15.07.2016 : Striking Contrasts

Borgholm Castle at Oeland/Sweden was mentioned first time in 1281; becoming later a famous renaissance castle and finally a barock palace in the 17th century. In the 19th century it unfortunately burned down - but its fragments are still an attraction promoted by the local city marketing as a historic monument.

This historic location was in summer 2016 the Genius Loci for a joint exhibition of the Swedish Neon artist Hans Frode and his Japanese wife Tokiko Ishiguro Frode who is an Origami artist - and who is at the photo with Prof.B.Hallier explaining her Stag Bettle exhibit
 



02.07.2016 : Nordic Power

Trade around the Baltic Sea was very well organized already in mediaeval times. The city of Luebeck/Germany was the power-house of the Hanse-Club (1358-1669) , a network of cities around the Baltic Sea like Bergen, Rostock, Riga, Tallin cooperating via special trade agreements like today nations do within the EU or the WTO .

In Kalmar/Sweden the Kalmar Union (1397- 1523) united Denmark, Norway, Sweden ( to which at that time also Finland did belong - like the castle on the photo) . Learnings : already 800 years ago farsighted leaders did overcome the local/ national segmentation for international trade. Even when the Kalmar Union lasted only for a century it did have an impact onto the ethnological behaviour which today we call the Scandinavian profil.
