  • Minneapolis: Shootings in Battle Zones with Public Safety concerns

    in News

    Tune into the Ron and Don Show as we take listeners on a historic step-by-step lay out of the hustle for public safety money and how, by the evidence of the latest murders, it has not worked in Minneapolis. From July 25 to July 26 (24 hours), two people died from gunshots, many more injured. Ron and Don will discuss how to end this tragic violence, but also point fingers at the organizations that have sold out the black community in favor of a working friendship that is more dysfunctional then a duck with rabbit ears. As always, the phone lines will be open.

    Jordan Goodman--First Hand Account Of China's Bubble Economy Bursting #2740

    in Finance

    Financial expert and regular network contributor Jordan Goodman is just back from China where he has seen all the makings of what he considers to be a housing bubble ready to burst. Endless residential and commercial construction, giant buildings and shopping centers with no tenants - so called Ghost Cities' - and an economy that can no longer support the massive build-up. 


     


    "What we have is a recipe for disaster in China and we are seeing it now with wild Chinese stock market fluctuations affecting world markets. The scariest thing however is that unlike what we saw in the US in 2008, this collapse will be much bigger and potentially more destructive to the world economy", says Goodman.


      


    Goodman traveled all across China by rail where he saw with his own eyes buildings going up in cities too small to support their growth. Complicating the economic problems in the world's second largest economy is that China has no property tax therefore the only revenue cities can count on is real estate construction and sales.  



    Is a housing collapse in China inevitable?
    How will it affect our economy?
    What should the average American do to brace for the worse case scenario?
    is it too late to prevent a housing collapse in China?
