A Year in Review: The Slipping Economy and Changing Political Atmosphere

What is exceptional and what makes America exceptional? Recorded on December 7, 2018 On this special episode of New Business Paradigms, Rinaldo and Kristy announce the new weekly radio show starting in January.  The show begins with a reflection on the 77th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the parallels that it has with the modern political climate.  Rinaldo checks in with economic indicators at the end of the year and makes predictions about the impending recession (hint – it’s still much sooner than most people think). There has also been a large amount of climate change news at the end of the year, from the US climate report and the IPCC report in November, to the COP24 summit in December.  Rinaldo comments on the imminent danger of climate change as well as some of what can be done to prevent it.  Finally, he connects this with the gas tax protests of the Yellow Vest protests in France and explains the true causes of the movement.
