Our budget for 2018 is 4T (1T = 1,000B). Can our government income cover 4T? I propose solutions in this book.
We have to balance the budget. It is highly responsible we borrow the money and ask our children and their children to pay for our debts.
The US is still leading the world in many areas, but we're declining for sure. Can we turn back the tide? The simple answer is a big YES. However, we have to bit the bullet and understand our weakness and strengths.
We need to invest effectively as an individual and as a country. We need to understand the concept of consumption and investing. Going to wars is consumption while building bridges is investing for the country.
China has her problems but it has been rising in the last 30 years. She will compete with our high-tech sectors. If you still think they're building crappy products, your dumb nationalism has covered your eyes.
I have outlined many global problems including aging population and global economies and provide ...

Wake up America, before it is too late, before we have communism in America! The mobocrats mean business. Watch the culture war, study the mob, listen to their words and watch their ways and understand their demands to change and transform our Republic under God. The original tea party movement, our Founders, warned us that if we were to keep our Republic we would always have to remain diligent to the cause of freedom and vigilantly aware of those who would under the guise of freedom destroy life and liberty.
America is under attack. Its constitutional rights, institutions and values are under daily assault. But the principal culprits are not foreign terrorists. They are influential and powerful Americans, applying Marxist theory, secretly stirring up disunion and disloyalty in the shifting shadows of the Democratic Party.

The labors of those who have edited these volumes are not only finished as far as this work extends, but if three-score years and ten be the usual limit of human life, all our earthly endeavors must end in the near future. After faithfully collecting material for several years, and making the best selections our judgment has dictated, we are painfully conscious of many imperfections the critical reader will perceive. But since stereotype plates will not reflect our growing sense of perfection, the lavish praise of friends as to the merits of these pages will have its antidote in the defects we ourselves discover. We may however without egotism express the belief that this volume will prove specially interesting in having a large number of contributors from England, France, Canada and the United States, giving personal experiences and the progress of legislation in their respective localities.

Drawing on new research material from ten European countries, Asylum Determination in Europe: Ethnographic Perspectives brings together a range of detailed accounts of the legal and bureaucratic processes by which asylum claims are decided. The book includes a legal overview of European asylum determination procedures, followed by sections on the diverse actors involved, the means by which they communicate, and the ways in which they make life and death decisions on a daily basis. It offers a contextually rich account that moves beyond doctrinal law to uncover the gaps and variances between formal policy and legislation, and law as actually practiced.
The contributors employ a variety of disciplinary perspectives - sociological, anthropological, geographical and linguistic - but are united in their use of an ethnographic methodological approach. Through this lens, the book captures the confusion, improvisation, inconsistency, complexity and emotional turmoil inherent to the process ...

Moral Foods: The Construction of Nutrition and Health in Modern Asia investigates how foods came to be established as moral entities, how moral food regimes reveal emerging systems of knowledge and enforcement, and how these developments have contributed to new Asian nutritional knowledge regimes. The collection's focus on cross-cultural and transhistorical comparisons across Asia brings into view a broad spectrum of modern Asia that extends from East Asia, Southeast Asia, to South Asia, as well as into global communities of Western knowledge, practice, and power outside Asia.
The first section, "Good Foods," focuses on how food norms and rules have been established in modern Asia. Ideas about good foods and good bodies shift at different moments, in some cases privileging local foods and knowledge systems, and in other cases privileging foreign foods and knowledge systems. The second section, "Bad Foods," focuses on what makes foods bad and even dangerous. Bad foods are not simply ...

For centuries, Africa's Upper Guinea Coast region has been the site of regional and global interactions, with societies from different parts of the African continent and beyond engaging in economic trade, cultural exchange, and various forms of conflict. This book provides a wide-ranging look at how such encounters have continued into the present day, identifying the disruptions and continuities in religion, language, economics, and various other social phenomena that have resulted. These accounts show a region that, while still grappling with the legacies of colonialism and the slave trade, is both shaped by and an important actor within ever-denser global networks, exhibiting consistent transformation and creative adaptation.
