  • Killing Capitalism?

    By: Ziad Abdelnour | 20 Sep 2023

    There is something tyrannical and anti-American about a White House that takes to court one of the nation’s most innovative and profitable companies on the grounds that the company is TOO successful, and consumers like it TOO much.

    Do you remember what happened in 2008?  Many people believe that another historic financial disaster is coming and that it will absolutely devastate the U.S. economy.

  • The Trump Circus Exposed

    By: Ziad Abdelnour | 17 Aug 2023

  • Weathering the coming tsunami

    By: Ziad Abdelnour | 08 Aug 2023

    I believe the world economy should have collapsed in 2008 were it not for a massive Hocus Pocus exercise by Western central banks. At that time, global debt was $125 trillion plus derivatives.

    Just for the record, the Federal Reserve was created in order to save the big New York banks from their greed-driven mistakes, and that is the Fed’s principal activity. In recent decades the Fed has gone beyond merely saving the big banks from their mistakes to helping the big ones concentrate mo...

  • Why the right education is THE solution to our prosperity
