A Capital Idea Part 121: Nutrition is Good for you; Tons of Money, not so much

Based on a conversation on my friend Poor Richard's blog site, I had another idea about the relationship between money and the environment. Thus, I will take one more attempt to capture this relationship here.

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
