  • The Biden Gamble in the Race with China
    Washington –No matter what you think of Joe Biden, you’ve got to admit he’s gutsy, he’s bold, he goes for the big enchilada. Our new President is a risk-taker.  With paper-thin Democratic majorities in Congress, Biden is not only pushing another whopping $2 trillion economic package, but he is defying the cornerstone mantra of American laissez-faire capitalism, which is to get the government out of the way and let private enterprise dream uo the space-age inventions of the future. In his massive new infrastructure project, President Joe Biden is betting big-time that government financing can generate ... (Read More)

    Being in the midst of a pandemic, I like to reflect back on my time as a young student on the campus of North Carolina State University.

I have many fond memories and experiences from my time there and still find ways to come back to campus from time to time and see all the progress and changes. However, I recently found out about ...
