Politics of Power in a Country Roiling from Despair

Recorded on June 6, 2020 On this episode of New Business Paradigms, World Business Academy Chief of Staff Kristy Jansen and Academy President Rinaldo Brutoco discuss how proud they are of the peaceful protests occurring around the United States as well as their incredulity that the POTUS would continue to fan the flames of violence so callously.  Rinaldo makes the important point that these protests may finally have taught Mr. Trump that he is not above the law.  The show then turns towards economic indicators, beginning with the incomplete unemployment numbers and the shifting to the imbalance between the stock market and the real economy. On the second half of the podcast, the conversation shifts to address recent fluctuations in gold as major economies are moving in bulk, and the decision multiple countries are making to invest in a blockchain-based currency.  The end of the show is surprisingly positive, given the uncertain times; Rinaldo mentions his letter to the graduates as a jumping-off point to urge the class of 2020 to create the world they want to see, rather than accepting the flawed world as it is.
