“Trust but verify” is a well-known phrase from the Reagan era, often used by the White House back then when discussing negotiations with the Soviet Union.
President Reagan knew he was using a much older Russian proverb – Доверяй, но проверяй (“Doveryai, no proveryai“). Such are the often strange twists in international diplomacy.
The past three days have once again reminded me that we may well be back in similar territory.
Except this time, the negotiations are being made so much harder by America’s self-inflicted wounds…

We only just landed back in South Florida from Paris. And I’m already preparing to move out again on Sunday, bound for Frankfurt (through Vienna).
You’ll be hearing all about the energy meetings I’ll be attending, right here in Oil & Energy Investor.
Now, I hope our trip back from Paris is not a harbinger of the trip back to Europe this weekend. We have enough concerns already.
Especially given who I’ll be meeting in Frankfurt…
