Please discuss how the supply chain of Starbucks or Boeing is exposed to Risk. You can get a lot of this information from the 10K and the websites of either one of these companies, you can also go online to investor relations and listen to their last investor call. You can get great information there. I expect you to use other sources also. You will not have any trouble finding them. You can discuss political risk, currency risk and climate change risk, or anything else you can get a lot of this information from the 10K at the websites of either one of these companies you can also go online to investor relations and listen to their last investor call you can think of. This is an international business class however you don’t have to be dealing with international suppliers. Just an FYI, Ford had to shut down the production of one of its most profitable pickup trucks because of a fire at one of its suppliers, they were in Michigan. Several employees were laid off. And now we have covid-19 which is also causing problems with supply chains. This should be an interesting discussion. By the way, if you have a company that you are really interested in you can discuss them instead of Starbucks or Boeing however, I would like to approve it you do it.
