Now’s thetime to decide where to put your money.Sometimes, it is best to wait – I recommendyou spend hal an hour or more readingthis magazine – beore you decide.And speaking o crises, remember whatHenry Kissinger said: “There cannot be acrisis next week. My schedule is alreadyull.”I suppose that is what most people saidin September/October this year. Yet a crisisstruck, again and again. Up and down.“The Chinese use two characters towrite the word 'crisis.' One characterstands or danger; the other oropportunity. In a crisis, be aware o thedanger – but recognize the opportunity,”said John F. Kennedy.Let's put the danger aside – “We havenothing to ear but ear itsel” – and ocuson opportunities. The global economy willregain speed and stability. Fingers crossed.But it will not be the same as it was.Hopeully, there will be more roomor green construction. In this issue oWorldwide you can see that even HisMajesty, the King o Sweden, supports theidea.This issue also eatures the kings andqueens o development and construction,the guys and gals in dirty bootsconstructing buildings, roads and projectssuch as London’s newest and greatesthospital, a courthouse in Sweden and awindmill in Chile.Also in this issue, the Skanska GoldenHard Hat Award winners and the newleaders o Skanska Sweden and Skanska UKare presented as well as 22 trainees whorepresent an inusion o new blood intothe Skanska system.Enjoyemail@example.com
