Welcome to our new format of New Business Paradigms: 30 minutes on the intersection of politics, society, and the economy.  On this episode, Chief of Staff Kristy Jansen, and the World Business Academy’s President and Founder, Rinaldo Brutoco, discuss recent events and how to interpret the latest from the “Trade Wars”, shooting sprees, and other chilling headlines.  Rinaldo speaks passionately on how the recent spate of mass shootings belie a deeper culture of violence in America that is slowly choking the economy.  He asks what’s happening in our world when our children are learning to “drop and cover” in case of a shooter in first-grade classrooms?

Rinaldo also discusses the danger of the fires in the Amazon, Indonesia, the Arctic, and even in Europe.  While some are caused by humans and others are spontaneous, all are destroying the lungs of the planet and making the world a little less livable for humanity.  The show concludes as Rinaldo highlights the sorry state of the European economy – even with standouts like Portugal – and gives some more detailed advice about where to invest.  The answer: gold ETCs.  Listen to find out more specifics!
