CW 838 FBF - MALTHUSIANISM DOESN’T WORK. PEOPLE BRING US NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND CONTRIBUTE TO ECONOMIES
Originally aired on CW 536.
The debt crisis in Greece is proof that Socialism doesn’t work. Can you imagine camping out in front of an ATM only to be turned away? We need to be responsible. Socialism has never worked. Investing in long term, stable rental properties is the proper way to create and grow wealth. Make a decision on a material fact with us. Should the family have been notified about a stalker before they bought a house? And we go way back to the 1970’s when Jimmy Carter warned that the world’s oil was almost gone and the U.S. should invest in new technologies. Is the oil gone and do new energy sources have environmental sins of their own?
