debt crisis

All good things must come to an end. After nearly 32 years on the air, this week marks the final radio broadcast of the Steel on Steel program. John kicks off the show by pulling together all we've learned in three decades about how the world works, how we got to where we are today, and where we can expect to head in the future. He leaves a lasting legacy to you, our loyal listeners.

To help John make sense of the changes in America over the last 30 years, he welcomes one of the show's earliest friends, Rabbi Burt Yellin of Messianic Congregation Roeh Israel in Denver, Colorado (roehisrael.org). Past mistakes are coming home to roost and those in power now haven't learned from them because they're proposing the same failed solutions today.

John finishes out the show with one more review, documenting the fellow travelers on the globalist train over the last century and how it affects us today. He then says goodbye to you, the listener.

On behalf of John; his incredible wife Carol who has been the glue that holds us all together; Brad, who solves every problem that comes across his path and keeps us relevant online; Producer Steve, who has had the privilege of occasionally joining John on the microphone for the last quarter of the show's tenure; and from everyone else involved in the show – thanks to all of you for your prayers, your kindness, and your loyalty over the years!

Rabbi Burt Yellin of Messianic Congregation Roeh Israel in Denver, Colorado was a friend of Steel on Steel from its beginning in 1990. His keen insights provide some sense to the changes America has experienced during that time. This is true especially now that we are plowing into a period when the effects of past mistakes come home to roost and even greater mistakes of the past will be proposed once more as a solution.

What is the future of the world's economy? Is it a digital currency and all the problems that come with that? Or is there a better option? Joining us today is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He lends his cryptocurrency experience, looking at the benefits of Bitcoin and the dangers of a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards. He and John also discuss central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. Chris also answers the question: is Russia end running sanctions by investing in crypto?

Will there be consequences to this onrush of economic sanctions against Russia? Is politics overshadowing economics to the detriment of people worldwide? Joining us today is Tho Bishop (mises.org), Assistant Editor of the Mises Wire at the Mises Institute. He discusses how politicians here and in other countries are largely ignorant about economics, putting political righteousness over sound policy. He also looks at the very real possibility that the sanctions process being used against Putin right now will most likely be used against 'domestic terrorists' in America soon. Is there any way off this road to high inflation and economic destruction? If there is, it won't be on a political road.

Christmas without a Christ, salvation without a savior, and redemption without repentance. Those things are not possible but that doesn't stop many people today from wanting them. John opens our Christmas show taking a look at the two things we are guaranteed to encounter in our lives: reality and God. Those aforementioned people are looking for solid rock truth, but in Marxism, which only traffics in false narratives and disingenuous "truth" claims. Christ, the reason for Christmas, is at odds with Marxism. One of them is true while the other is false. We all know which one wins that battle.

So why do young people so often look for truth in Marxism and socialism? Has it always been that way or is it specific to today's youth? Our first guest this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He posits that young people have grown up with little strife but the real world is, in their minds, too cruel when they grow up and encounter it. They turn then to socialism as a replacement parent. He discusses how different generations have handled this and what we can do moving forward.

Finally this week, we break out the crystal ball for some speculation and analysis of the future. There is much rumbling in Washington DC and around the country about the future of Kamala Harris in the White House. What will become of her? Back with us to gaze into that crystal ball is writer and retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com). He gives his theories on the Vice President, but also looks at geopolitics, economics, and mandates as we deal with a weak leadership in America.

Why do young people seem to fall in line with socialism so easily? Is it generational or is it specific to today's youth? Here today to answer these questions is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks at how young people have had it rather easy lately growing up but when they hit the real world, they become disillusioned with it and try to find the easiness they're used to. Socialism fills that parental hole in their lives. Brandon discusses the different generations and their response to and responsibility for inflation and other things. It's a fascinating conversation you don't want to miss.
