Having fun in guessing which country from the image shown.
1. US
2. HongKong
3. Singapore
4. Switzerland (I did not know that Nestle was from Switzerland)
5. Denmark
6. Sweden (Ericsson)
7. Australia
8. Canada (large energy reserves. Economists do worry, however, that local companies are cutting back R&D, particularly in the tech sector)
9. Finland (Nokia)
10. Netherlands (Heineken, ABN Amro, Fortis)
11. Norway (large energy reserved, engineers graduates)
12. Luxembourg (the highest per-capita GDP)
13. Germany
14. Qatar (energy-rich)
15. New Zealand (business-friendly regulation, including low tariff barriers and straightforward rules to start a company)
… and the list goes …

Common trends: excellent education systems, high gov efficiencies, supportive infrastructure.


The workspace is so cramped, how could one concentrate on three monitors at the same time? Well, if he can do it, so can we.
