    I have twice listened to your Janurary 2020 delivery of world events. Over the last 50/60 years I was a product of the working class and therefore lived through our economic system, but you put it all together of what really caused our present economic troubles.

    I remember working for Walmart being asked the question while being an employee if I wanted to join the union! If I said yes, my employment ended immediately, but if I said no, I would continue to work at Walmart!

    Our world, especially the USA, is in for a BIG downturn this year 2020! I advise people to prepare for life as we now know it, to change to the worst! Inflation and shortages of staples (such as food) may happen suddenly! Will your family be ready? Ben
