Bruce Wrobel writes in his open letter 2012, "Given our experience working on large, complex projects and working closely with international lenders such as the World Bank and African Development Bank and given our significant investment in time and capital, would we be so foolish as to ignore the laws of our host country? Would the Cameroonian government sit by and allow us to operate illegally?"  http://heraklesfarms.com/docs/916OpenLetterBWrobel.pdf


The suicide of Bruce Wrobel, a Blackstone unit CEO shows the difficulties of doing well and doing good. Bruce Wrobel's body was found by a friend on Dec. 10, 2013, at about 1 a.m. in a Mercedes-Benz CLK550. Police called to the West 20th Street scene—a quiet, tree-lined stretch of townhouses in Manhattan's affluent Chelsea neighbourhood—discovered suicide notes to family and friends. The New York City medical examiner concluded the 56-year-old poisoned himself inside the parked car with carbon monoxide by mixing sulfuric acid and other toxic chemicals. http://www.cnbc.com/id/101697417#.


"The argument that the timber industry betters lives is wrong, usually only made by those who have a vested interest in the trade, it destroys what could be a sustainable source of revenue for impoverished people, and much of the revenue goes directly to elite and corrupted administrators."  Read more from - http://betockvoices.page.tl/The-Voice-of-the-Voiceless.htm
