Although the US and most developed countries are nominally democratic, many of us seem to be again yearning for a man on a white horse, and in the current era, the horse ridden is corporate. On Health Care Renewal, we having been talking about this pheonomenon for a long time. We have written about it in terms of the messianic (or visionary, or charistmatic) CEO, CEO disease, and the imperial CEO.
These concerns are diffusing into the broader media. For example, from the introduction to a revent Vox article entitled "The Problem with CEO Worship"
Society has always had heroes, be those of war or art or politics. But entrepreneurs are particularly suited for our current moment, in which success in business is our primary marker of achievement. Business acumen doesn’t just get you money anymore; it can make you the most powerful man in the world.
The signs of CEO worship are everywhere: unprecedented venture capital funding for founders, media overemphasis on company leaders, and to use the most extreme and obvious example, the election of Donald Trump.
That article noted that CEO worship may overestimate the importance of leaders; create "secular fundamentalists" out of individuals; perpetuate destructive neoliberal ideologies; encourage CEOs to make worse decisions; and be bad for business
Those are not the only consequences. CEO worship makes it possible for a progressively impaired leader to go unconstrained. Unfortunately, we may be seeing the ultimate example of this in the US.
Incoherent Verbal Utterances
Even before he was elected, we noted that Donald Trump sometimes was completely incoherent when describing his health policy ideas. In early 2016 we raised questions about Donald Trump's cognition. At that time, a conservative columnist labelled as "word salad" Trump's attempts to sketch a position on health care, specifically the "mandate" provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We found other examples of his utterances on health care policy that could be characterized as gibberish. This one was short, if not sweet
I want to keep pre-existing conditions. I think we need it. I think it’s a modern age. And I think we have to have it.
How could anyone understand this while listening in real time? A close reading suggests that maybe this was meant to suggest that some people ought to have insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions. However, Trump seemed to befuddled by that concept. Furthermore, note that pre-existing conditions are not desireable, so that one would not want to "keep" them, nor can one choose not to. To what the word "it" in the second sentence and again in the fourth refers is unclear. The third sentence seems to be a complete non sequitur.
We found additional examples of incoherent verbal responses about health care in 2017, and early 2018. In the last six months, things have only gotten worse. Examples of verbal incoherence have multiplied, although most were not related to health care.
I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.
Perhaps this was meant to suggest that the president drew a larger crowd to an arena than did Elton John. However, note the non-sequiturs: from "Elton has an organ" to "lots of other people helping" to "we've broken a lot of records," "They need much more room, for basketball, for hockey..." Who are the people helping whom are they helping, and to do what? What records were broken by whom, and how is this relevant to Elton John, etc. To whom does they refer, and why do they need a lot of room? Etc, Etc. Again, in real time this would have made no sense at all
In fact, the president was difficult to follow because he simply doesn’t make any sense half the time.
Trump was asked one specific question about health care, and good luck to anyone who tries to figure out what his answer meant. He pretty clearly has just as little idea what he’s talking about on most major policy issues as he did when he first started running for president. On Jamal Khashoggi, waivers on Iranian sanctions, North Korea and Russia, he either ducked the questions with non sequiturs or just babbled.
When President Donald Trump met with Dalia Grybauskaitė of Lithuania, Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia and Raimonds Vējonis of Latvia earlier this year, he started with a criticism. At the White House in April, Trump opened by chastising the Baltic leaders for starting the war in the 1990s that ended with the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. The Baltic leaders were apparently very confused and it took them 'a moment' to realize that the commander in chief was confusing Baltic states with the Balkans
this case is particularly notable considering Melania Trump is originally from the Balkans. The first lady was born in Slovenia, which gained independence in 1991 at the start of the Balkan wars. As Le Monde wrote, Trump remained 'apparently uneducated in the matter by his wife, Melania, originally from the former Yugoslavia.'
This suggests at best that at times Trump may be unable to distinguish words that sound vaguely alike but have quite different meanings.
And I’m not blaming anybody, but I’m just telling you I think that the Fed is way off-base with what they’re doing, number one. Number two, a positive note, we’re doing very well on trade, we’re doing very well — our companies are very strong. Don’t forget we’re still up from when I came in 38 percent or something. You know, it’s a tremendous — it’s not like we’re up — and we’re much stronger. And we’re much more liquid. And the banks are now much more liquid during my tenure. And I’m not doing – I’m not playing by the same rules as Obama. Obama had zero interest to worry about; we’re paying interest, a lot of interest. He wasn’t paying down — we’re talking about $50 billion lots of different times, paying down and knocking out liquidity. Well, Obama didn’t do that. And just so you understand, I’m playing a normalization economy whereas he’s playing a free economy. It’s easy to make money when you’re paying no interest. It’s easy to make money when you’re not doing any pay-downs, so you can’t — and despite that, the numbers we have are phenomenal numbers.
The author of the article stated,
I have basically no idea what Trump is talking about here, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t either.
On repeated close reading, I still do not have any idea what Trump meant. I would add the following questions: 38 percent of what? Who is much more liquid, and how is liquid defined? Who is paying a lot of interest? What does "paying down and knocking out liquidity" mean? What is a "normalization economy?" Note that this was coming from someone who claims to be a brilliant business manager.
Furthermore, consider what Trumps aid about the climate,
And when you’re talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small. And it blows over and it sails over. I mean, we take thousands of tons of garbage off our beaches all the time that comes over from Asia. It just flows right down the Pacific, it flows, and we say where does this come from. And it takes many people to start off with.
Oceans are "small?" What "blows over and sails over?" Over what? What "flows?" What "takes many people?"
STAT reviewed decades of Trump’s on-air interviews and compared them to Q&A sessions since his inauguration.
To summarize the conclusions.
The differences are striking and unmistakable.
Research has shown that changes in speaking style can result from cognitive decline. STAT therefore asked experts in neurolinguistics and cognitive assessment, as well as psychologists and psychiatrists, to compare Trump’s speech from decades ago to that in 2017; they all agreed there had been a deterioration, and some said it could reflect changes in the health of Trump’s brain.
In 2018, Trump's verbal communications at times are even more garbled. Parts of the passages above suggest the word salad produced by somebody with fluent aphasia versus the nonsensical responses produced by patients suffering from acute delusional states. That Trump is capable of producing this sort of word salad at times, without realizing he is making no sense, suggests the intermittent symptoms seen early in progressive dementia.
Lack of Insight About Cognition
Furthermore, Trump appears to lack insight about his difficulties commicating.
In July, 2018, after the NATO conference, Politico reported, that Trump seemed to have no insight about why much of what he says appears unbelievable to others. The article noted
leaders who spent the first 18 months of Trump’s presidency thinking there might be a method to his chaos creation — and struggling to discern what it might be — now seem to have concluded that it’s just chaos, and that Trump himself may not understand what he’s doing.
More specifically, European officials commented on what Trump was saying:
A senior NATO official said leaders had concluded that they simply could not rely on anything Trump said.
'You know the way he speaks, you cannot take him literally,' the official said.
Another EU official echoed the point. 'He speaks a language that doesn’t match with diplomacy,' the second official said. 'We were used to the Brits, who speak a more frank diplomatic language, but this is another thing.'
These officials again seemed to be stating that Trump's verbiage can be completely incoherent, albeit they were doing so diplomatically. After the conference, however, when confronted with a question about the inconsistency of his remarks,
When a Croatian journalist confronted Trump about his inconsistencies, the president flatly denied there were any, and he repeated a defense of his own sanity that he had made when previously questioned about his fitness for the presidency.
'We understand your message, but some people ask themselves, will you be tweeting differently once you board the Air Force One?' the reporter said.
Trump, speaking at his news conference before leaving the summit, replied: 'No, that's other people that do that. I don’t. I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.'
Not to belabor the point, but the examples noted above suggest neither consistency nor stability. And true geniuses almost never boast about their intellect.
In September, 2018, The Hill reported an interview with Trump in which he said his personal health and management style were reasons that Republicans might do better than expected in the 2018 elections,
'You know, I took that test when I got my last physical, and the doctor said that’s one of the highest scores we’ve ever seen,' Trump said. 'I did that not because I wanted but I did it, I was always good at testing.'
He continued: 'But if there’s anything great about me it’s stability, and I’m a good manager. Always been a good manager, but you know, I have a vision,'
Note that above Trump was presumably referring to the screening test for dementia he took during his official physical examination. High scores on the test are common, and do not signify great intelligence, just the probable absence of dementia.
In addition, this interpretation assumes that the test was administered in an unbiased way. However, there are reasons to question whether Trump's physical was unbiased. In retrospect, we now know that soon after taking the test, Trump nominated the physician who administered it to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Later the physician withdrew his name after allegations of his questionable personal behavior appeared (look here).
At least Trump's boast about having "a vision" does correspond to the language often used by public relations spokespeople to justify their CEOs' lack of accountability and high compensation (look here)
Similarly, in the Vox summary of the November, 2018, Washington Post interview (see above for link), Trump stated
a lot of people like myself - we have very high levels of intelligence
Finally, a November 18, 2018 article in MediaIte described this interchange between Trump and interviewer Chris Wallace on Fox News, starting with his response to a question about how he makes decisions
'I don’t think about them,' Trump replied. 'I don’t think about, you know, how I make them....'
However, he responded to a question about Federal Reserve policy
They're making a mistake because I have a gut, and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else's brain can ever tell me
This suggests that Trump has lost insight into his own thinking.
External Observers Suggested Trump Is Cogitively Impaired
More than ever, Trump is acting by feeling and instinct. 'Trump is nuts,' said one former West Wing official. 'This time really feels different.' Deputy Chief of Staff Bill Shine has privately expressed concern, a source said, telling a friend that Trump’s emotional state is 'very tender.' Even Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are unsettled that Trump is so gleefully acting on his most self-destructive impulses as his legal peril grows.
[Dr] Lee told Salon that two Trump administration officials approached her after the book was published to express their concern about the president’s mental health, saying he was 'scaring' them because he was 'unraveling.'
In comments to Newsweek over email, Lee said 'it appeared that the officials (if they were officials at all) were at least frequently in [Trump’s] presence.
She continued, 'They were definitely calling from within the White House, which I confirmed by calling back their number. However, I did not ask about their rank. There was no reason for me to doubt they were high-ranking enough to have regular access to the president.'
Lee also said that a 'person [who] was a friend of his entire family, since his childhood” had also been in touch with her at the same time in October 2017, as people in the White House were “stating concern about the president (this was an observation from afar).'
Also in September, 2018, a Politico review of the new book by Robert Woodward based on numerous White House interviews suggested that Trump's inner circle called him a "dope," "idiot," or "moron."
Donald Trump is the chief executive officer of arguably the most powerful country in the world. Starting during his campaign for the US presidency, we noted that his utterances about health care were at times so incoherent as to suggest cognitive dysfunction. In the two years since then, especially in the last six months, he has increasingly been noted to be verbally incoherent or confused, has seemed to lack insight about these episodes, and has been observed by close allies and associates to be cognitively impaired.
However, there have ben few, at best, public attempts to link these suggestions of cognitive impairment together, nor to discuss their implications. The most recent of those that I have found was in January, 2018 (look here and here). Yet the problems appear to have been getting worse since then.
While patients with worsening cognitve impairment deserve accurate diagnosis, compassionate care, and access to what few effective, safe treatments may be available for their condition, they obviously should not be in a position to make consequential decisions. They certainly should not be in charge of large organizations, particularly powerful countries with nuclear weapons.
Yet President Trump's apparent cognitive decline remains anechoic.
For this we may blame CEO worship, which we have too often seen in health care. We have seen many health care leaders praised for their brilliance and paid royally despite leadership resulting in financial distress, threats to the organizations' health care missions, poor patient care, unethical behavior, or even crime. Yet health care CEOs, like other corporate CEOs, and like politicians are just people, sometimes smart, but almost never brilliant. Promoting them as messianic to bewitch key constituencies, justify the remuneration of other top managers, and the hiring of more public relations flacks is likely to lead to the sort of organizational disasters and system-wide dysfunction we discuss on Health Care Renewal. The rise of the falsely messianic leader may allow the entry of the most dangerous false messiahs, the psychopathic ones. (We discussed the likelihood that some health care leaders are actually psychopaths here.)
We must get quickly past our worship of CEOs. We may not long survive in a world where leaders of nuclear armed nations have no cognitive clothes.
European Union finance ministers on Tuesday adopted a plan to enhance the bloc's defences against money laundering at banks, but the move could slow a legislative reform on banking supervision. The action plan is meant to be the EU response to high-profile cases of alleged money laundering at banks in several EU states, including Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Spain, the Netherlands, Britain and Cyprus. Ministers agreed there was a "need to strengthen the effectiveness of the current framework" to counter money laundering, and proposed some non-legislative actions to implement in coming months. But the plan did not include any recommendation for legislative changes. Nor did it address calls from the European Central Bank to set up an EU-wide agency to counter money laundering. The plan could also delay proposed reforms of money-laundering supervision from the European Commission in September, because ministers first want to assess the recent cases of financial

A lo largo de la Guerra Fría, la OTAN se proclamaba como una alianza defensiva. Sin embargo, esto ni era verdad en aquellos tiempos, ni lo ha sido tampoco desde entonces. Así lo revelan las intervenciones y cambios de regímenes promovidos con sus acciones militares, desde Yugoslavia hasta Libia.
El 4 de abril de 1943, los países fundadores: Bélgica, Canadá, Dinamarca, Estados Unidos, Francia, Islandia, Italia, Luxemburgo, Noruega, Países Bajos, Portugal y Reino Unido (12 en total), firmaron en Washington el Tratado Atlántico Norte. El 18 de mayo de 1950, los cancilleres de dichas naciones, signaron el documento que daba forma a las estructuras permanentes de la Alianza Atlántica.
Tras el desmantelamiento en 1991, de la respuesta socialista a la OTAN (Pacto de Varsovia), la alianza continuó su existencia, expandiendo su membresía y presencia geográfica, usurpando abiertamente el papel de la ONU, interviniendo en la ex-Yugoslavia, comenzó en Bosnia en 1994, lanzando una guerra contra lo que quedaba del país yugoslavo, en 1999, ocupando Kosovo, después de tal operación.
Desde 2001, la OTAN ha participado en la guerra de Estados Unidos en Afganistán. En 2003, no se unió oficialmente a la invasión ilegal de Irak, pero muchos de sus países miembros se unieron a la “Coalición de la voluntad”, impulsada por George W. Bush.
Después de 1999, la acción militar más abierta fue su intervención el 19 de marzo de 2011 en Libia. Posterior a que el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU autorizara el establecimiento de una zona de exclusión aérea sobre el país, Canadá, Estados Unidos, Francia y Reino Unido iniciaron los ataques aéreos sobre su territorio.
Oficialmente, la Alianza asumió el mando de la guerra el 31 de marzo, bajo la llamada Operación Protector Unificado, realizando en octubre 26,500 vuelos, hasta la muerte del gobernante libio Muammar Gaddafi en octubre.
En 1990, James Baker entonces secretario de Estado de Estados Unidos, prometió al líder soviético Mijail Gorbachov que la OTAN no avanzaría ni una pulgada hacia el este si Alemania se reunificaba, pero hizo exactamente todo lo contrario.
Hungría, Polonia y la República Checa, fueron aceptadas oficialmente a la OTAN en marzo de 1999, pocos días antes de que los aviones de combate de la Alianza, iniciara el bombardeo en el territorio yugoslavo, sumándose en el 2002, Bulgaria, Eslovaquia y Rumania. El último país del antiguo Pacto de Varsovia en unirse (2009). La coalición se expandió hasta las antiguas repúblicas yugoslavas: Croacia, Eslovenia y Montenegro, incluyendo a las antiguas Repúblicas soviéticas de Estonia, Letonia y Lituania, llegando a las fronteras de Rusia. Continúo expandiéndose hacia Georgia y Ucrania.
La más reciente escalada de las tensiones con Rusia inició en febrero de 2014, tras un golpe de Estado en Ucrania, respaldado por Estados Unidos. Desde esa fecha, las tropas de la Alianza establecieron bases en el extremo oeste ucraniano, proporcionando armas, entrenamiento a militares y neonazis para contrarrestar la agresión rusa.
So pretexto de “disuadir a Moscú”, la OTAN estableció bases militares permanentes en los tres Estados bálticos, Rumania y Polonia, llevan a cabo una serie de ejercicios militares masivos en la frontera con Rusia.
Inició las maniobras “Trident Juncture”, en Noruega, una intensiva coordinación estratégica entre Estados Unidos y 30 países, cuyo objetivo es practicar una respuesta militar a cualquier amenaza desde cualquier dirección. Desde el final de la Guerra Fría, tales maniobras son el mayor ejercicio de la OTAN y constituyen un claro mensaje para cualquier potencial adversario, de que protegerá a todos los aliados.
En diversos puntos del país nórdico y en el mar Báltico, los ejercicios se extienden del 25 de octubre al 7 de noviembre, abarca también Islandia, el espacio aéreo de Suecia y Finlandia, dos naciones no miembros de la alianza, pero que este año se sumarán a las maniobras. Los ensayos comprenden cerca de 65 buques, 250 aviones, 10,000 vehículos y unos 50,000 efectivos.
Aunque la Alianza no ha nombrado a su supuesto adversario en las maniobras, el exmilitar Juan Antonio Aguilar (director del portal El EspíaDigital.com), afirma que: el enemigo que justifica la existencia de la OTAN es Rusia. Sostiene que uno de sus objetivos, es visualizar la presencia de fuerzas occidentales en la frontera rusa. El canciller ruso, Serguéi Lavrov, condenó la acumulación de tropas cerca de las fronteras de su país.
El comportamiento de la OTAN, desde la década de 1990, muestra que se ha convertido en un agresivo y expansionista organismo, al servicio de las prioridades de la política exterior de Estados Unidos.
Estonia está situada al noreste de Europa, justo entre Rusia, Letonia y el mar Báltico. Aunque hasta 1991 perteneció a la URSS, el territorio se identifica más con los países bálticos y nórdicos, sobr ... - Fuente: ecommerce-news.es
Join us for an engaging conversation with Mailis Reps, Minister of Education and Research of the Republic of Estonia, who will discuss:
The Future of Education and Skills
"We should not see education solely as an instrument that helps us to adapt/react to the changes or compensate for negative developments outside of the education system. We should have a strong vision for education as a driver of positive social change.” – Mailis Reps
The world is in a state of flux. We all work hard to respond to the constantly emerging challenges globally, in Europe, in societies and communities. Education and skills have become the new currency. What are the opportunities to get ahead? What policies and actions can help equip people with the skills of tomorrow?
Estonia is one of the frontrunners in education. The Baltic country of a 1.3 million people believes in education and innovation. What is behind e-Estonia in formal and non-formal education? How has the digital revolution transformed education and skills?
Mailis Reps is the Minister of Education and Research of the Republic of Estonia since November 2016, she has held the same position also in 2002–2003 and 2005–2007. Mailis Reps has been a long-time member of Riigikogu, the Estonian Parliament and she has been elected to Tallinn City Council several times. From 2000 to 2009, Mailis Reps lectured on European and International Law and on International and Comparative Law at Riga Graduate School of Law. She has graduated from Central European University in Budapest (Master’s degree in Law) and from Maastricht University (Master’s degree in European Public Relations). Mailis Reps is currently obtaining a PhD in European Law from Uppsala University, Sweden.

I am a bit in love with the word structure at the moment and closely related to that word is the word system which is also a word that I am opening up in my life. These two words are powerful when applied with common sense in everyday life.
For example in my work I have many responsibilities stretching over a variety of different areas and many of these responsibilities are closely tied to deadlines. There are too many responsibilities, and too many deadlines for me to remember. The only way for me to manage my responsibilities is through creating structures. And by trial and error I have established a functional structure a system that supports me to handle my responsibilities.
In summary my structure/system is a data-table with all the information of a particular responsibility fed into the different columns and rows of the table. In the beginning and at the end of each week I take a closer look at this table to establish what deadlines are coming up and thus what responsibilities that I must tend to. During these moments I plan my week and the coming weeks by referencing my table I project myself into the future and assess how much time I need to be able to reach the deadlines. And then I schedule my time more thoroughly in writing for the coming week.
Then the week starts and I am in the middle of the heat. And usually at that point there is no time for me to take a look at the bigger picture. Deadlines and responsibilities merge into one flow and here my structure/system/plan helps me immensely without it I would loose myself in the waves of information and movements that occurs. However with my structure I am settled and when I need reference I take a look at my structure to see where it is I am going next. My movement is already decided all that is required from me is that I animate it and put life into my structure which practically means that I follow, that I am present and alive within my structure.
By using this system I have managed to create a comfortable and effective workflow. And I would say that is possible to create structures and systems in all areas of life that helps us to reach our best self that removes undue pressure and hardship because what systems and structures do is that they automatize and they put the pressure unto physical reality. And the cool thing about physical reality is that it handles pressure without any limits. A calendar will be able to store massive amounts of information effortlessly all that we have to do in order to utilize that potential is to create a routine where we use and counsel our calendar on a daily or weekly basis.
A mistake that I have sometimes made is that I forget the support available in structures and systems and believe that what is important is to take action and just get things done. Thus I have in my past felt as if it is not worth my time to sit down and plan my week because apparently I am then loosing valuable moments where I could have taken action. The reality is that this perception value is faulty. When a effective structure and system is in place this makes the following action so much easier and faster because I know where I am going and I know what I am doing I can place ALL of my focus on the CREATION instead of having to juggle between focusing on the task at hand and keeping the overview at the same time.
However there are times when there can be too much structure it then suffocates rather than supports with expansion. This is for example the case when tasks and responsibilities are micro-managed allowing for no creativity or flexibility. In such cases structure becomes a nuisance that creates anxiety and pressure. Hence for me I enjoy tasks structured with much room for flexibility, changes and unforeseen happenings. A structure or a system is a support a means to reach an end and not the goal in itself.

“I am really proud and excited with this contract, that will allow, once more, to help the development of triathlon in all regions in Europe”, said ITU President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. “ETU’s plan for 2019 covers many different National Federations and projects, with a special focus on fostering the growth of National Federations and developing talent in athletes and coaches, which shows how connected ETU President Renato Bertrandi is with the development necessities of European nations.”
ETU President Renato Bertrandi presented a plan to use the funds offered by ITU to provide development camps in Cyprus and Serbia, as well as support for the Youth Triathlon Festival Camp in Slovenia, and four training sessions for the ETU Development Team.
After signing the agreement, Bertrandi said, “We have listened very carefully to the needs and the “wish list” from our National Federations, athletes, coaches and Officials in order to develop a comprehensive programme that covers as many areas as we can, and that will help to consolidate the work of our Development experts across the Continent. I would like once again to extend my deep gratitude to ITU for the continued support and faith in our work and I look forward to seeing our new athletes race in 2019 and onwards.”
ETU will give support to Belarus and Cyprus to help them organize the Youth Triathlon Festival Camp, and also to Bulgaria for a Talent identification camp. Estonia, Greece, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxemburg, FYR Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Romania and Slovenia will receive funding for some development projects, including TriGirls programmes, coaches education or the launch of the programme We are the Future, for kids of 14 years or younger.
The European Triathlon Union has also approved the calendar for the 2019 season, a packed 10 months period that will start in February 2019 with the Winter Triathlon European Championships in Cheile Gradistei (Romania) and will finish in October in the European Cup of Funchal (Madeira).

Finest Bay Area Development on Monday announced it has received an investment of 100 million euros for the planning and permitting stage of its project to build an undersea railway tunnel between Helsinki, Finland, and Tallinn, Estonia.
The cash injection came from ARJ Holding, a Dubai-based company specialising in water, energy and infrastructure technologies.
A private company claiming to build and operate a planned sub sea railroad tunnel between Finland and Estonia said on Monday the tunnel construction would cost 17 billion euros.
Talking to media in Helsinki, Finland's well-known entrepreneur Peter Vesterbacka pledged that trains would be running at the end of 2024.
Vesterbacka said his company, "Finest Bay Area" would not rely on local or EU-based public funding, but use private funding from Europe and Asia. He gave the share of Asian money as half of the project.
The Finnish government earlier determined that a tunnel project should belong to the EU core railway plan and be eligible for EU funding. The governments of Finland and Estonia have given no estimate of the cost or schedule of their plan.
Vesterbacka also indicated the private nature of the plan would make the project faster than when working via the public sector, contesting the government view that five to six years would be required for assessing the environmental impact.
Vesterbacka published the Dubai based Arj Holding LCC as the first investor in the plan. Their 100 million-euro input will be used for the planning of the project.
Vesterbacka said his company has recently had discussions in China. Asked whether Chinese state run companies would be involved, he said "of course project of this scale will involve state owned enterprises as well", but said "it is too early to go into detail in that".
Veterbacka pointed out that Helsinki and Tallinn are actually in the heart of Euroasia. He said that Finns are used to seeing the area at the northeastern corner of the map and tend to forget the dimension towards Asia.
He said ticket sales for the 2024 starting trip have begun. A return ticket is now selling at 100 euros. The travel time of one-way journey is to be 20 minutes.

The Finnish National Prize, an annual cultural award from the Ministry of Education and Culture, went to Henry "Remu" Aaltonen, the drummer and vocalist of the 1970s band Hurriganes; the fashion designer behind Ivana Helsinki, Paola Suhonen; and Academy Award nominated director Selma Vilhunen.
This year each of the prizes, which were handed out by culture minister Sampo Terho on Monday, include an award of 25,000 euros.
Other recipients of this year's prize include the Oulu-based design firm alt Architects, the non-profit hobby group Finnish Game Jam, poet Jyrki Kiiskinen and Helsinki's Koko Jazz Club.
Aaltonen, Suhonen and Vilhunen
The 70-year-old bald-headed rock star Aaltonen helped to found the rock band Hurriganes in 1971 in Helsinki. The group went on to enjoy more than a decade of success and popularity in Finland, Sweden and Estonia, releasing their music on the Love Records label. The band's name was intentionally misspelled and their music has been described as nostalgic roots-based rock 'n' roll which has become icons of the rock scene of the 70s and 80s. During its heyday, the band recorded several covers of popular 50s hits, but the group also wrote their own songs, including one of their most well-known, Get On. The track was recorded - and improvised - at the producer's request for an extra song at the last minute when the band was finishing up their second album in 1974.
Fashion designer Suhonen founded the clothing, art and film company Ivana Helsinki in 1998. By 2007 the company was the first Nordic firm ever to take part in the prestigious Paris fashion week. Suhonen has continued to design products and concepts around the world. The designer also ran into some controversy earlier this year when the charity group Plan International Finland ran a high-profile ad campaign featuring a pregnant 12 year-old Zambian girl posing in a line of maternity clothing design by Suhonen.
Director and screenwriter Vilhunen has made fiction and documentary films during a career that started nearly two decades ago. Her short film Do I Have to Take Care of Everything? was nominated for an Academy Award for best live action short film in 2013. Vilhunen has received awards for her other work as well, like 2008's documentary Pony Girls and the TV film Pietà in 2007 and was co-writer of the 2005 feature film Homesick. Her 2016 film Little Wing was one of Finland's most prominent films in the past few years.
This year's prizes were handed out on Monday in Helsinki and the recipients will be acknowledged at the Independence Day gala at the Presidential Palace on Thursday, 6 December.
The Finnish National Prize has been handed out annually since 1993.
