Thanks to Andrew Pohl for this comment this morning:
I attended your presentation to the CFA [Chartered Financial Analyst] society back in 2012 and I wanted to write you and thank you again for your speech. While it was a while ago, I still think of you and your letter which was always a pleasure to read with great insights about northwest economy. I especially enjoyed the book you recommended in your presentation, “China in Ten Words”, which I am still recommending to people to this day whenever a conversation about China comes up. I didn’t realize you had this blog and now that I do I plan on coming back. I’m so glad to see that you are still sharing your insights here. I hope all is well and thank you again for the work you do.
Andrew, you just made my day. Thank you for such kind words.
I, too, continue to recommend China in Ten Words by Yu Hua. I continue to believe that developments in China will dominate our economic conversation for as far ahead as the eye can see.
Marple’s Letter is no more, sad to say. I sold in 2009 after more than 30 years. It died in 2013 of declining circulation.
Besides blogging, I continue to be active as a professional speaker. Referrals welcome.
