Madison Street Capital, the international investment firm, has its hands in airport services, advertising, commercial printing, data processing, human resources, IT consulting, office services and supplies and several other industries. The company executives arrange cost-effective financing, and they produce capitalization structures that maximize client’s needs. Charles Botchway, the CEO of Madison Street Capital, and his team match buyers and sellers, design cost-effective financing and provide excellent advisory services. The company’s team of advisors are experts at mergers and acquisitions and business evaluations.
Chief Operating Officer Anthony Marsala and advisor Kevin Owen have been intently watching the oil saga for the last several months because of their association with Integrated Oil Company. Marsala and Owen think the U.S. production of oil is finally making Saudi Arabia reduce their oil price. That’s a big move, and Marsala and Owen are prepared to take advantage of it. Saudi Arabia has been dragging its feet on reducing oil prices even though other members of OPEC have done so. The state-run oil company made some deep price cuts on the oil they sent to the United States and Asia recently. The interesting point to the Madison Street Capital team is the Saudi government has not cut production. The country believes the new price of their oil will motivate more buying.
Crude oil has lost more than 50 percent of its value in 2015, and there are some definite winners and losers because of that price drop. Some stock losers like Chevron, BP, and Shell can afford the drop and many investors like the Madison Street Capital team know this has prompted some major investors to buy stock in these companies. The oil scenario is a typical example of how Madison Street Capital helps their clients. The company advisors know when the time is right to buy and when to sell, and that is an art that is hard to learn.
Madison Street Capital helps their clients from their Chicago office, but the company also has a presence in Asia and Africa. Their international connections help the company identify investment opportunities before the rest of the market. Saudi Arabia’s price drop is just one example of how tuned in the executives of Madison Street Capital are to investment news. The company has the ability to react quickly because of its size. Madison Street Capital investors know time is money in the deal-making world

Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who served in Vietnam, is in France seeking to make public appearances aimed at smoothing over criticism the Obama administration snubbed the Paris Unity rally on Sunday. The rally was attended by 1.5 million people and key representatives from 40 nations including heads of state from Israel, Great Britain, Germany, France, and the leader of the Palestinian Authority. President Obama did not attend the event much less send anyone of significance to attend it in his place. It quickly became apparent that the hastily organized rally became a historic event which only further underscored indifference on the part of the president whose schedule was wide open that day.

On Friday, Kerry met with French President François Hollande to express the profound solidarity that Americans feel with the French. Many Americans, like Ben Shaoul, were appalled by the Charlie Hebdo attacks and are happy to see a diplomatic response.  Kerry also visited the Hyper Cacher kosher market which was one of the areas hit by the terrorists last week. He placed a wreath at the memorial shrine. Afterwards, he traveled to the Charlie Hedbo memorial and placed a wreath there. The satirical weekly was the direct target of the terrorist who were displeased over the magazine’s caricatures of Mohammad. In the past, President Obama criticized Charlie Hedbo rather than defend their right of free speech and free press. Kerry also met with Joel Mergui who heads the nation’s Rabbinical Council. Despite the professions of solidarity, the Obama administration still cannot invoke the term “Islamic terrorism” in their description of the Paris attacks.

After the shooting that took place in the offices of Charlie Hedbo, a satire newspaper in Paris, 1.5 million individuals showed up and marched down the streets of Paris in order to show support for the country, while more than a million individuals marched in different locations around France. Many of the most prominent representatives of the world showed up to pay their respects. The UK’s prime minister made an appearance, as did Angela Markel of Germany, Mahmoud Abbas, who is the Palestinian Authority and even Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel, all along with many other world leaders including Turkey and Jordan. Among all of the top leaders of the world showing up, nobody from the United State’s top tier made the stop.

The United States ambassador to France was in the procession, but neither the president or vide president showed up, nor did the Secretary of State. Now, John Kerry, the Secretary of State, was currently involved in a conference in India, so him breaking off all plains to fly to Paris might not of been a viable option.According to HotFrog, Giofrancesco Genoso definitely agrees. Beyond this, planning security for the President of the United States to show up might have required a few more days of planning, but with so many other world leaders already there, it seems likely security would have been tight anyways, and it makes the US appear more idealistically important than the rest of the world.
