Our round table discussion today, hosted by John and Carol, features two of the most knowledgeable people we know when it comes to economics and theology: father and son duo Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including the facts behind current financial trends and inflation, a realistic look at the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the spiritual and philosophical side of things, the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day. It's a long and fascinating conversation!
The U.S. is still working out what administration will occupy the White House in January, but countries in the Middle East aren't waiting around. Israel-based Josh Hasten (joshhasten.com), host of the Israel Uncensored radio show, joins us to answer the question: what should be done about Iran? A Trump and a Biden administration have markedly different plans when it comes to Iran. Gulf States in the Middle East are forming alliances with Israel to fight against Iran should help not materialize from Western countries.
With all this uncertainty swirling around, a feeling of angst has settled over a lot of people. John, Carol, and Steve convene a Steel round table for a discussion on how to handle these stressful times. We need to focus on what's important and come together and help each other. Also, prayer is a great way to manage anxiety because God's plans are always best and He will provide a way for us to get through it.
John and Carol continue the studio round table, examining the new normal (or emerging paradigm shift) in the world of economics. They look at the global economic picture, the actions of central banks around the world, and how the virus is affecting businesses both big and small.
Finally this week, we tackle the age old question: what is truth? Dr. James Thrasher (faithandfreedom.com), Professor of Biblical Studies at Grove City College, relates his experiences with students and how they need a solid grounding in the absolute quality of truth. Truth can't be 'your truth isn't my truth' - it has to be based on something. In this clash of worldviews we're having today, it's important to ground yourself in absolute truth.
Picking up where they left off yesterday, Dave McAlvany and Kevin Orrick (www.mcalvanyweeklycommentary.com), Co-Hosts of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary, are back to conclude our two-day round table discussion. Today, they shift from an economic analysis to more of a spiritual discussion, covering Christianity's threat to communism, standing up in the face of adversity, and relying on God during crises.
The coronavirus caused nationwide lock-downs and closures and one of the hardest hit sectors was education. Joining John in the studio today is his wife, Carol, who is an education expert and former homeschool teacher and Rachael Grant, who has homeschooled her kids for the last nine years. They discuss the difference between homeschooling your children and learning via the public school at home – two very different situations. The most important factor in how to educate your children is what is contained in the curriculum.
