22.02.2022 : Cultural Bridges

The last quarter of this century did bring prosperity via global trade : one of the drivers was the revitalization of the Silk Road. Prof.Dr.B.Hallier has visited in that period many times Kazakhstan but also Usbekistan, Mongolia and China discussing the development with Nobel Laureates at the Astana Economic Summit or with representatives of universities and business of the players along this network.


For Hallier beside the economic effects for the increase of the Wealth of Nations measured in GNP also the cultural bridges were utmost important for the understanding of those countries. "We in the West can learn a lot of the ancient China or about philosophy from Farabi (870 - 950) who studied logic, medicine and sociology and travelled through Kazakhstan ,Syria, Iraq and Egypt. Beside the Greek philosopher Aristoteles he was called the second master in the Arabic tradition. The three Madrasas at the Registan Place in Samarkand had been built between 1417 and 1660 and had been used for study; they had been the universities of those times." Prof.Hallier stated remembering his visits."Going to teach about the West was always also a process to learn from the East " he added. " In respect to the own mind-set it became a growing personal obligation to work for World Peace and resilience between the different tribes of the world population".

06.01.2022 : Ballymaloe/ Ireland

In the mid 80ies the romantic Ballymaloe Hotel near Cork/Ireland based in a historic building was just for Prof.Dr.Hallier the highlight at the end of a four days Whiskey-Trail through the country. Meanwhile he visited that place several times over the decades and saw its extensions towards a complex Food Hub from farm via processing and hotel and farm-shop (see also : (link)).


The Organic Farm and Gardens are not only the source for the Slow Food Restaurant but there is a "look and find-kids trail sheet" to find plants, animals and insects; the owner-family is running a cookery school for more then 30 years with different courses up to a 12-weeks certificate - but they are also the stars of national tv-cooking shows ; the breakfast and dinners in the hotel-restaurant are outstanding and combined with the ambiente of old-style Irish landscape ; a farm-shop invites you to bring hand-made food-samples home : but Professor Hallier admitted to have eaten all of them already before he arrived back in Germany with his CampingMobile from Ireland.
