LISTEN NOW! The federal government is now borrowing .46 cents of every dollar it spends and has a national debt of 16 trillion dollars. Greg, John, and Pat liken what is happening today with the economy and how it intersects with our lives to the board game Monopoly. At the end of the game one person dominates and the one who controls all the property and money wins and is able to control others. However, this is not a game. This is for real when a communist country like China owns a great deal of American debt. This is insane; we can’t mortgage our future. This all ends with “one man” owning everything and everyone else in servitude.
