The author emphasizes how these processes affect the business level as well: Mohamed Taleb “runs the printing operation for a firm called Protec” and is the one who was chosen to produce banners; similarly, Qifei Liang has a business deal involving 6000 t-shirts for the campaign. Furthermore, the author attempts to shed light on how the political instability can produce insecurity on the economic and business level by underlining the sums of money owed to these businessmen and that the repayment time is thought to be uncertain. \nAt the base of these events, we find the society: the people who have to make a choice that will hopefully improve their lives.","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"chart","chart_id":1099633,"object_id":"mwhite54_1362955503","chart_type_nr":9,"data":[[["","Countries mentioned in the
