Sarwar's opinions, conversations, and guest editorials
Polaris, the North Star has been used for centuries by sailors to find one’s location within the cosmos and to chart a passage to safe harbor. I’d like to think that my iteration of Polaris might serve as a guide to help make sense of today’s rapidly shifting geopolitical and economic changes, and help policy makers safely navigate these tumultuous times.
