America's Outmoded "Factory Model" Educational System Needs To Be Radically Reinvented

America's educational system is an outmoded "factory model" designed to produce interchangeable industrial and service workers en masse for an industrial economy of factories and a 1960s-era service sector that needed millions of employees with basic-skills. It's obvious that we desperately need a new decentralized, individualized and far more productive system of education.

America’s Student Debt Problem Is Much Bigger Than Anybody Realized

The opportunity to pay for college by working a part-time job evaporated as soon as huge sums of money were handed out to anyone with a pulse. Since students no longer pay their tuition upfront, colleges are able to raise prices in perpetuity, knowing the government will step in and make credit easier and easier to obtain. Subsidizing the lives of an entire generation has turned personal growth and advancement into a choice instead of a necessity.

Nobel Prize Winner Tells Davos' Elite, US Should "Get Rid Of Currency"

Half a world away at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Nobel Laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz made remarks earlier this week that the US should "get rid of currency." Physical cash means there is no one else standing between you and your savings. But Professor Stiglitz and his colleagues don’t want that. They want a massive, centralized bureaucracy to have control over your savings.

Dead Unicorn Walking? Theranos Fires Another 40% Of Staff

In October we noted that the death of Theranos has been long coming - ever since the WSJ' John Carreyrou did a phenomenal job, starting about one year ago, of exposing the fraud that is Clinton Global Initiative-darling Elizabeth Holmes - but now following the second round of massive job cuts, it appears the final nail in the coffin of this 'fake news' unicorn is being struck. As Bloomberg reports, the startup will eliminate 155 more positions, leaving 220 employees (down over 70% from highs).

Soros Drops Millions To 'Rig' Justice System In Arizona

Soros has spent millions in 2015 and 2016 funding campaigns to defeat local prosecutors around the country and elect new ones who back criminal justice reform measures. But Soros’ spending against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona, a high-profile liberal bogeyman, is his single biggest investment in a local race this year, as well as the billionaire’s first effort against a sheriff.

Wall Street: The Trump-China Missing Link

If in the next two presidential debates Trump points to the crucial missing link in the whole plot – Wall Street - he might as well lock on as a surefire winner.

Why Is Hillary Clinton Always Hiding Something?

One of the more disturbing revelations from this year’s U.S. presidential election, has been Hillary Clinton’s compulsive propensity to hide all sorts of things from the American public. While we appreciate one’s right to privacy as much as the next person, if you want to run for President of these United States, transparency and engagement with the public should be a top priority and requirement.

Elon Musk Is The Face Of This Bubbling Stock Market (But Maybe Not For Long)

Simply put, Musk is supporting the system’s determination to strip people of various forms of self-reliance. It’s one thing for government agencies to promote “clean” energy. Many are immediately suspicious. But Musk’s overriding talent is to make federal authoritarianism seem positively sexy. He is the rock star of alternative energy... "Elon Musk is an obvious fraud. Something that all of his companies rely upon is continued gub’mint cheese. Without the largesse of the state, his entire empire would have already collapsed."
