This week -infographics & CHURCHILL quotesspecial


“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
“The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.”
“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”
“Never, never, never give up.”
“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
All by Mr Winston Churchill

It is based on the theory of purchasing-power parity (PPP), the notion that in the long run exchange rates should move towards the rate that would equalise the prices of an identical basket of goods and services (in this case, a burger) in any two countries.
