Thought for the Day

The French elections have become most interesting.

Neck and neck the four contenders created a clear margin from the rest and finished up within 4% of each other.

A quick glance at Wikipedia tells me that Marine le Pen's aim is to expand the political influence of her party and transform it into a "big popular party that addresses itself not only to the electorate on the right but to all the French people".

So she is the leader of the party and is working to build up a relationship with a wide range of ordinary French people. A far cry from the party her father founded with his extremist views.

She seems to be popular with people looking for change and came second in the election.

Her main rival, who came first in this French primary election, was Emmanuel Macron who went to all the right elite schools and after a stint in government found himself a well paid job as an investment banker at Rothschild & Cie Banque.

Now he is the leading candidate to be the next French President, despite never having stood for public office before, and the question is who paid his campaign funds?

Marine Le Pen is the woman of the people and she is now in a close fight with Emmanuel Macron a Rothschild man from the elite class.

As Lord Ascot remarked, "In the end it will come down to the people versus the banks."

Can democracy come through for the people of France or will money and influence in high places win out?

Creating Wealth and Keeping it

The New book by Phil Scott, President of the Foundation for Economic Growth.

"This book is good, damn good and no statistics!" Lindsay Gordon, MA, MSC, PHD.

Every serious economics student should have a copy and read this ground-breaking foundation of clear economic thinking. Real Economics explains how human actions shape our world and why so much seems to be going wrong for Western economies. This book will bring enlightenment for the general reader who will see why a few very wealthy are becoming exceedingly rich and the middle classes are on the road to serfdom.
