"The Government Pension Fund Global (correct translation: Sovereign Pension Fund – Foreign), also known as the Oil Fund, was established in 1990 to invest the surplus revenues of the Norwegian petroleum sector. It has over US$1.3 trillion in assets, including 1.4% of global stocks and shares, making it the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund. In May 2021, it was worth about $248,000 per Norwegian citizen. It also holds portfolios of real estate and fixed-income investments. Many companies are excluded by the fund on ethical grounds." from wikipedia.

Can America benefit from thought leaders in other countries? No. If our egos do not allow up to be open minded, and accept help from other countries, even if they are 'smaller than us' - America and our communities can not progress.
So the bigger question is, can we check out big hat egos?
