    The Current State of the Political Economy – New Business Paradigms – 10/6/15

    in Business

    In the international section of October's show we discuss the ongoing role of China in the global economy, the latest growth projections from the IMF, and the problems with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive trade deal that is going to come before Congress soon.

    We then discuss The Optimist Daily, a project launched by the World Business Academy in partnership with The Optimist magazine. Sign up for a free daily email full of Solutions News – we focus on the things that are working now instead of the doom and gloom narrative of the mainstream media. No Spam. No Marketing. Just Solutions. Find out more here: http://worldbusiness.org/the-optimist-daily/

    In the domestic news section of the show we discuss the current state of affairs of the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party and the contest to replace Speaker of the House John Boehner. As a result of congressional chaos we have moved the Doomsday Clock forward one minute closer to midnight, which represents global economic meltdown. We are now at 11:50pm.

    In the Economic Drilldown, Rinaldo gives his outlook on oil prices, gold, and stocks that pay strong dividends.

What distinguises a Enlightened Leader from the rest of the leadership pack?  And further, what are we looking for from our leaders, both culturally and politically?  Can they deliver this and what happens if they don't?
