Have you flown with Budweiser Airlines?

Published by on november 25, 2013

Probably not. Because they have been producing beer since 1876 and are firmly stuck on the ground. Unless their famous commercial phrase “What’s Up?” actually is a hidden message saying that they are going into the airline business. I don’t think that will happen for a long time – because they have too much history on the ground holding them back.

History should not stop Budweiser fly and eventually lands on top of the airline industry.

Sharkonomics makes its debut in Japan

Published by on november 13, 2013


In a land rich with culture and curiosity, my book Sharkonomics is now swimming amongst 127 million readers. It’s humbling and amazing to see Sharkonomics translated into Japanese – a beautiful language – and designed and presented in such a clean-cut way. My hope is that it will inspire Japanese business people in both attack and defence. Since Japan is such a great country which I have yet to visit, my hope now is to hold lectures about Sharkonomics and meet interesting people there, and experience the uniqueness of this land.


Sharknado mega shark movie success

Published by on november 9, 2013

The B-movie Sharknado is a mega movie success. I have seen hundreds of shark movies  but Sharknado seems to be outstanding (in a way only B-movies can be). It got 5,000 tweets per minute (Foxnews).
B-movies are more trendy than the rest of Hollywood, this movies is produced by one of the best The Asylum.

When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, nature’s deadliest killer rules sea, land, and air as thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace.

Watch the trailer for Sharknado a mega success with over 6 million wives on Youtube and are creating a cult tribe of fans.

Sharknado will make Sharkonomics swim faster and bite harder!
