The world has an amazing richness of cultures with diverse histories, traditions and customs. Business travelers should acquaint themselves with the customs of rising nations, such as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India and China), if they want to be productive. Respect for cultural norms helps build business relationships.

“China Confucianism”

Chinese culture is millennia old. In fact, paper money and fireworks were both invented in China. Marco Polo took this paper fiat currency concept back to Italy.

Bowing is still expected as a show of deference in China. Your business cards should have both English and Chinese on them, out of respect. It is advisable to develop a relationship before you meet with the Chinese; this creates a bond of trust. Negotiations are quite complex.

“Russia Bear”

Direct eye contact during face-to-face meetings with Russians is expected. Your meetings might take longer than expected, so allot enough time on your schedule.

Russians believe that there are limited resources with a zero sum gain. You might face walkouts and emotional outbursts during negotiations; these maneuvers resemble chess moves.

“India Namaste”

Indians don’t like to say “No,” so they might obfuscate in order to continue amiable relations. Indians are quite spiritual and believe in personal, intuitive negotiations. Only certain individuals can make the final decision.

“Brazil Samba”

Brazil flows like the Amazon River. It is full of life, excitement and a little chaos. Dining is important, even in business contacts. Expect close proximity and ways to circumvent onerous rules.

“East Buying Gold”

As China and India industrialize, the masses are increasing their purchases of gold and silver in the international markets. India has always purchased large quantities of gold for its Hindu festivals. By concentrating on time-tested traditions, these nations have remained strong, energetic and full of vigor. You can add the same vitality to your wealth portfolio, by purchasing gold Karatbars.

Paper fiat currencies are prone to “moral hazard.” Their value can fluctuate dramatically and will always depend on whether the other party chooses to fulfill his promise. Gold Karatbars are always valuable – giving you control over your destiny.

My name is Mr. Harald Seiz and my Karatbars are a great way for you to take control of your life. When nations trust in gold, they have something that is permanent, tangible and valuable. Control your destiny with the global currency accepted in all nations: gold.
