  1. I have a bit of trouble believing that investments in North Korea and Afghanistan are deemed to be among the best. Apart from being difficult to make, there are high political risks and a danger the United States could attack (or attack again) and mess up the economies of either one.

    As a senior myself, I think nations likely to deliver the highest return in the shortest time need to be taken most seriously.
