Trump's Opportunity Zones Are Turning Ghettos Into Greatness

 "With Opportunity Zone's we're drawing investment into neglected and under-served communities of America so that all Americans regardless of zip code have access to the American dream' - President Trump Along with the 2017 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, "Opportunity Zones" were born. Many have viewed, or are now accepting, this comparatively small aspect of the Trump Tax Cuts to be a monumental change in the way America works to improve impoverished communities.

California Should Follow Greece's Example And Elect Conservative Leadership Now

 Not long ago (2008) Greece was making headlines for some of the worst news a country could face: economic collapse and financial default. Luckily for Greece, the UN was able to produce the largest financial rescue of a bankrupt nation in history (2010) by loaning Greece enough money to prevent a total default. Since then, the UN has had to re-bailout Greece multiple times and the Greece economy has continued to struggle in massive ways. The high tax & anti-growth policies affecting Greece have been enabling poverty and anguish among the citizens for well over a decade. Just a few examples...

President Donald Trump and his Supreme Court appointee Justice...

Venezuela Has Demised Under Democrat Party Policies

  Venezuela was the richest country in South America as recently as the early 2000's. At this time, the country held the largest fossil-fuel reserves in the entire world (and it still does). By 2004, oil prices had surged and the phrase "too big to fail" might have seemed relevant as this booming Southern American country had economically shot to the top and held a new ambitious morale for the future. Less than 20 years later, the people of Venezuela are enduring violent clashes with federal forces in an attempt to liberate themselves from starvation, poverty and oppression. So what the heck happened?...

Economic Records: Most People Employed AND Most Job Openings in US History

Economic Records: Most People Employed AND Most Job Openings in US History

The US economy has been on an upswing since roughly 2011 when effects of the Great Recession had finally started to turn around. The economy was doing relatively alright prior to the housing collapse of 2008. With unemployment in the mid 4s and the Dow Jones surpassing 14,000 for the first time ever in 2007, the only real economic issues seemed to be gas prices or products of terrorism. Unfortunately, immense fiscal dangers loomed underneath a seemingly sustainable economy much like a hungry crocodile may loom beneath a pleasant body of water.  Many people, including many scholars, give large amounts of...
