What’s China’s Take on War in the Donbas?
If you’re a regular reader of Rude Awakening, you probably know that Sean Ring was born in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey. He barely left his hometown to study finance and landed a banking job on Wall Street. At the age of 24, he went to London for a business trip and fell in love with the city. It was “Candyland for alcoholics,” he once told me, so he convinced his company to transfer him there. While there he continued his corporate education, eventually becoming a teacher himself — helping traders pass high-level exams. That work took him to Singapore… then Hong Kong… and finally the Philippines, where his wife is from. Along the way, he’s become a certified Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst… Financial Risk Manager… Chartered Market Technician… among other qualifications that he says “don’t mean anything.”
Like me, he’s just trying to figure out how the world works.
