Introduction

Jason Hartman welcomes author, John Horvat to today’s Solomon Success Show, where they discuss the state of our economy and the fundamental elements needed to fix it. They also talk about intrinsic human failures and their impact on the economy as well as what the Bible says about immigration issues.

Takeaways

03.10 – The economy can’t just be stimulated, regulated or legislated into order. Instead it requires the basic institutions of family, faith and community.

05.30 – We’re currently in a cruise-ship economy, but when the party stops, people are going to start looking for answers.

07.00 – Arguably, the principal reason for the current economic imbalance is due to our desire to have things immediately, coupled with our inability to see past the short-term gain.

13.00 – The Bible says that immigration can be healthy, but it takes time for a people to learn what the country is all about and in order for them to make decisions.

15.35 – With household debt at $13 trillion and government debt at $17 trillion, consumer debt is a huge problem.

17.20 – A conference in July spurred reports that our economy could now be as volatile as it was in the mortgage crisis of 2008.

19.15 – Head to www.ReturntoOrder.org to find out more, read a free chapter of the book and follow John Horvat’s blog.

20.00 – St Thomas Aquinas’s Summa Theologica and the Bible would be some classic but intrinsic resources for those interested in these issues.
