The last one….
Times are changing, in fact real fast, perhaps even too fast ? Definitely for our conservative inner being, each one of us has somehow the feeling that it used to be better ‘in the old days’. But the general trend is for short terms and everything has to be better and faster.
We do the same at BBT; we try to streamline our information faster, and that’s why you’re reading now our last three-monthly newsletter…
The BBT’s Friday Product Update team is very eager to take over with a weekly journal of product information and news. And who knows once in a while a personal word of myself ? The name FPU will also change into BBT NEWS : clear and to the point…
A short recap, our first newsletter appeared end 1998, the last end 2018… that’s exactly 20 years, that’s nice, isn’t it ? I used to write the forewords with love and I’ll definitely miss this certain regularity, but a weekly update is simply better and faster.
So a last three-monthly retrospect ? What was better of spectacular ? First of all a wonderful and splendid summer… just awaken from the winter. We really did sweat a lot, though a blissful feeling. I hope you all enjoyed it that much, I did in any case, not that I’m now ready for the winter, but at least I’m better prepared….:-)
On political and economic matters the malaise continues, we all protect our own country, people or place. At first sight it seems quite smart, but whatever exercise you make, it will result in higher prices for the end consumer, thus for us ….
The only difference is that price increases get stuck in the globalization with the multinationals and in the protectionism from the government. Anyway the man in the street will become poorer, if nothing is going to change, and unfortunately this won’t happen, that we can all predict..
Politically it’s getting worse… honor and modesty is a very long way off, mud fights are daily common issues, Twitter seems to be a diplomatic channel. Did the gentlemen politicians never heard of the Thai saying :he who throws dirt is losing ground…
Unfortunately my speeches of the last 20 years in the BBT newsletters haven’t produced any change, though in our world of beetles they have. And if we all want to make our small world a better one, than we collaborate at a better world too ? The politicians will get it sooner or later , with the acceleration from the speed of life they might be elected on a weekly base before they realize, ah!
See you soon somewhere on the road, on a VW meeting or a visit at BBT. As you know you’re always very welcome at BBT!
Innovate, don’t duplicate to keep that VW faith!
Keep you love for you profession and job, that you like to do. The world can be so nice!
