Outsourcing Your Online Presence

It’s 2017. There are a million ways to get a web site set up inexpensively that you can easily update yourself. Setting up a Facebook page and letting your web site rot, or worse, not even having a web site of your own, is outsourcing your entire  online presence. That’s truly insane. It’s a massive risk to your business, and frankly, stupid.

Winston Churchill

Towards the end his BBC interview reflecting on the Supreme Court’s decision, Mr Farage revealed the true intention of his BREXIT campaign, stating:

“Well, we would be half-Brexiting is my guess – is that legally we may get out of some aspects of EU membership, but if we stay in the single market, we finish up with all our businesses being regulated somewhere else and indeed a court in Luxembourg that can overrule our own Supreme Court and if that happens it will a supreme act of betrayal.”

How the super-rich bought their Brexit victory

Restoring Faith in Globalization

The communists are keeping the globalization faith; but the capitalists seem to have lost theirs. This is bizarre – and entirely out of sync with past performance and current facts. We have every reason to be confident in a process that has delivered more prosperity to more people than anyone could have dreamed of just a few decades ago.
