Trump is Handicapped in Draining the Swamp

Military defense is generally treated in economics texts as a “public good” because the benefits are presumed to be shared by all citizens.

The World’s Problem is still America

There are many things by which we have identified that the problem is still America, although the Americans are blaming their and the world’s problems to the Jewish bankers.
