Marc gets right down to brass tax and addresses the controversy surrounding his recent comments in the media. A tremendous amount of time is spent tracing the rise and fall of empires and what those great societies added to our modern day world.
A cordial conversation continues with Marc delving into sound investment advice and speaks to the hypocrisy of (mostly) American pandering. In Marc’s view every government, the world over, is equally corrupt. Marc ends with the thought that once you are a prisoner of the
system it is very difficult to get out.
Prisoners are good for governments as they help boost GDP. GDP, therefore, is not what one should use to measure how well a society is doing. A better indicator is the quality of living amongst the population.
