Why does Finance Monitor care? Well, I can be our first investigative journalist! I will do my best to keep my eyes open for unique companies as well as seeing the depth to which international companies have penetrated the far reaches of the earth.
For example, when I visited China in 2008, I learned that Western toilets were a huge deal. The Chinese were (maybe still are?) transitioning from pit toilets to what we would call toilets. And the company to get a toilet with? Kohler! Too bad they are private...
So here is a list of places I will be in China (most likely flying, so these will be the only places):
And in Europe the big cities are (with car and train travel between them):
So questions for everyone:
1. Any international company you want me watch for?
2. Any Chinese or European company I should look into?
3. What else should I look for?
