Watching the Gloabl Markets



. . .


Culture is defined as the unique ideas, customs, skills, arts, behaviors, appearances, and communications of a group of persons.


Culture frequently does not align with the borders of countries. Rather, it aligns more with geographical boundaries and formations, i.e. mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, etc.


It is unfortunate, but one of the more frequent causes of conflict around the world is the inability of divergent cultures, within the borders of a single country, to get along together.
