As head of Toronto today
TrizecHahn, the owner and developer of the Chicago Sears Tower, controls many famous and profitable business addresses.
What about his next scene?
He is a Hungarian refugee from the Nazis and wants to move TrizecHahn to retail stores in Europe, especially the former Soviet bloc.
Don\'t own this stock if you don\'t want to take a risk with him, although its trading price is quite cheap, probably 9 times the 1999 cash flow (

Munk insists that the thrust of Europe has nothing to do with emotion or personal glory.
He said: \"The real estate problem has always been a hero developer ---
Trump, zekdorf, Rickman and others-
He needs a monument to himself.
Nevertheless, there are still a lot of personal factors in his current thinking.
The 72-year-old Munk seems tired of his stake in North America and says he may want to sell it ---

Munk believes that 0. 3 billion Europeans will have a large-scale consumption spree, and there are too few shopping centers to accommodate them.

The area between them is 130,000 square meters, which is currently less than 2% of TrizecHahn\'s Global Holdings.
Don\'t make a mistake. it\'s risky.
Property investment in Eastern Europe is not performing much better than real estate companies in the United States, where real estate companies have recently been unable to pay off for fear of a recession.
Munk\'s international plan is cursed by the contrarian: they rarely find fans on Wall Street.
Since TrizecHahn unveiled its European strategy at a Wall Street analyst meeting in Dallas, Texas on February, the company\'s shares have fallen 19% to $17. Its market value has fallen by about $0. 6 billion.
Munk dismisses this suspicion: He says it is wrong for Hungarians and Czechs not to buy Western goods because of consumption.
They are attracted by American culture.
\"It is not enough for them to be troubled;
They must have cash to spend in the mall.
Visit the TrizecHahn Mall in Budapest, known as the WestEnd City Center, which shows how much Munk kills there.

Although a man in his thirties in a brown suit jacket took what he bought from Nikename tenants.
Hungary\'s economy is growing, with per capita income accounting for 1 out of 3 in Germany.

A growing number of retailers have cut profits so little that Czech regulators have recently launched a survey to determine whether goods have been dumped into the country.
TrizecHahn hopes to dominate the Czech market, possibly the 50-hectare flea market it is targeting in the heart of Prague.
Unfortunately, the company has been getting nothing in its four-year plan.
Another TrizecHahn strategy, which fought against its competitors, stalled: in 1998, the company spent $5 million to acquire a 54% stake in the Czech suburban development website, which is a three-Project project.
