Occupy Wall Street – What’s Next? A Few Wellness Suggestions

Every day, Americans are confronted with stories about and scenes of “Occupy Wall Street” protests in New York City and now other cities in this country and around the world. Most Americans support the Occupy Wall Street (henceforth OWS) protesters but some on the Right, such as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), consider the gatherings “mobs.” Personally, I find the overwhelming majority of OWS participants concerned citizens who want to promote fairness.They seek many changes, most on the order of more jobs, greater opportunities and less manipulation by the super rich. You could say they want to level somewhat the playing field.

What Happened to Free-Market Capitalism – Eric Schmidt Explains It to Congress

Over the years as the founder of a franchising company I had to deal with the onerous regulations coming out of Washington DC. I was often blown away by the disregard for my rights as a businessperson, and the dictatorial heavy handedness of the regulatory bodies and the bureaucrats who run them, who in my opinion don’t have a clue about free-market capitalism. Indeed as I look back and reflect, it’s obvious why, and if you have a few minutes I’d like to explain it to you.

China and Industrial Manufacturing Challenges

Although the government in China won’t officially admit it, they do have some rather ominous challenges in keeping up with their industrial capacity and demand around the world for cheaply manufactured products.

Re-Shoring, Off-Shoring, or Right-Shoring – Global Trade and Wages in the Balance

There sure is a lot of talk about China taking jobs away from the United States, and yet for some reason it doesn’t concern me as much as others, because I realize that eventually a rebalancing of global trade will occur. The issues of up-and-coming India and China have taken their toll, and currently are a concern, but as wage inflation continues, jobs will migrate to other places. Indeed, our next-door neighbor Mexico will also be on the list along with a revitalized and new North Africa with so many people making only a dollar and change per day.
