The second reasons I think that people ultimately would look at the equities slightly differently.

Manufacturing base particularly in high margin manufacturing to Belgium and -- has -- from. To mom for housing from. The younger population so lots of things on two things being bad at -- it's not in the old days like people said -- one and 2%. I'm pompous and growth in the world greens you respect it. I think we have one have a good. All he has a good -- for investments have you found the right investors to invest for you.
