Thanks to clouds, devices and blockchain the world is now one market. Bitcoin proves that concept. The result will be a political upheaval the likes of which hasn’t been seen in your lifetime. Unless you’re a lot older than I am. Continue reading

What the U.S. economy needs right now, desperately, is new demand, and new investment. We are doing the precise opposite. This is where the next crash will come from. This is how the next recession begins. Continue reading

If you made mistakes in the past, you can learn if you change your mind. If there are lesser angels controlling your mind and your heart, you are the only one who can beat them. We will take our country back when the better angels of our nature decide to take it back, and are willing to act on that conviction. Continue reading
