So, the population decreases every day at 17.00 by 30%. Nonetheless, a very successful country.The country is very strategically placed as it nestles between Belgium, Germany and France.Slight change of direction, IMhO besides successful commerce, successful countries (and not so successful) tend to produce great artists which inspires generations, and I do not mean one or two. From before Sophocles, thru Vermeer and past Cunningham. So I would recommend a balanced diet, for you can spit out PhD types and mba clones until the cows..., but without imagination we are dry.I can count influential Indian artists that come to mind, on slightly more than one hand and influential artists from Luxemburg on Ahabs toes.
