The growing downward momentum in the U.S. dollar’s 15-year cycle could trigger the most dangerous investment climate for euro-based investors in several decades.
The downturn in the U.S. dollar’s 15-year cycle and the rising global reflationary-forces are poised to accelerate.

13D’s Asia Conference in Hong Kong April 2018
Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides's Trap?
Lee Kuan Yew: “The size of China’s displacement of the world balance is such that the world must find a new balance. It is not possible to pretend that this is just another big player. This is the biggest player in the history of the world.”
In 1980, China’s economy was only a tenth the size of the U.S. economy. By 2040, Allison reckons it could be three times larger. Being overtaken by a rival who shares common values—such as Britain grudgingly watching an upstart America surpass its power but largely preserve its cultural, religious, and political beliefs—is one thing. It would be quite another to be surpassed by an adversary whose values are so strikingly different.
Stressing that war is not inevitable, Allison also reveals how rising and ruling powers have kept the peace in the past—and what painful steps the U.S. and China can and must take to avoid disaster.

13D Rebuilding schools in hurricane hit Virgin Islands
Hurricane Irma and Maria’s impact on the U.S. Virgin Islands was nothing short of devastating. Critical recovery efforts are underway and canvass every dimension of the island community. In support of 13D’s vision to promote education at all levels, the company donated $100K to the University of the Virgin Islands Business School; the funds will be used to assist Dr. Hall, the President of the University, to restore the business school infrastructure and support the faculty’s emergent needs. Additionally, 13D contributed $60K to Antilles School and the Virgin Islands Montessori International Academy to ensure operability of both institutions through this tenuous recovery period. We continue to work closely with the headmasters of both institutions, Liz Morrison and Michael Bornn, to restore both schools to their former level of excellence. We invite you to also support this meaningful mission.UVI Rise Relief Fund Antilles School Virgin Islands Montessori School
