Can true democracy really be practiced in a business? Would one employee - one vote make it possible not only to run a company but also make profit?

Relying on other people’s armies is a great idea if you can make it work, but the past few years has once again shown that it is easier said than done.
Why Obama’s bet on letting our friends and enemies slug it out in the Middle East is so risky.

Interesting that he wanted fighters to forget about an Islamic state. 
In his final years, bin Laden showed great interest in family while he drew up plans for mass casualty attacks on Americans, newly released documents say.

Interesting - one ex staffer said he would rather go to Iraq than work for her again

Meet Israel's new Justice Minister
The right-wing firebrand has often provoked outrage, but now she’s in a position to do real damage to the Israel’s independent judiciary.

How are they going to get an agreement that will stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons? Facilites such as the one mentioned in the article must be inspected. But the Iranians refuse 
Iranian officials have said that the United States has gone back on its statements regarding the underground enrichment facility of Fordow.

Absolutely terrible. How do we solve the problem of the increase of stateless people? Babies born to Syrian refugees abroad, for example.
Omer Karasapan documents the status of refugees who lack legal documents, and are then without access to basic health and education services, and have severe restrictions on their rights and freedom of movement.

    Dagens marknad är ofrånkomligt global. Med Europa i skuldkris är det läge att titta på nya marknader inte bara för export men finansiering. Saudiarabien och Gulfstaterna erbjuder enorma möjligheter. Följaktligen underlättar jag för företag att lyckas där. Vad jag kan göra för er beror på vad ni vill uppnå i regionen. Har ni en innovativ produkt med goda möjligheter? Forskningen är ännu inte klar och ni har behov av långsiktig finansiering? Då kan vi titta på möjligheten att få investeringar från affärsänglar och/eller riskkapitalbolag i området. Distributör, kundmöten eller etablering där är andra områden där jag kan vara behjälplig.
