We are living in a time of significant world economic competition. Americans possess the talent, capital, resolve and experience to fight our way through it just as the Greatest Generation fought through the danger of WWII, but we need to coordinate our efforts.

The purpose of this episode is to accelerate the dialogue to help make that happen. Our guest, Glen Meakem, is eminently qualified to speak on the need to coordinate our economic, business and political dialogue.

We will talk with Glen about his assessment of our economic position in the world and his views on the current national business climate. We’ll also discuss government policies, both regressive and simulative, and how we can move the country back to effectively legislating growth and prosperity.
