Trump's presidential Proclamation "Make Enterprise Great Again," and Biden go to BUNKER to "Build Enterprises Back Better."
Glimpses from the Book
Empires rise, decline, and fall. History has witnessed this cycle with the Romans, the Ottomans, and the British. They have all toppled, and if we are not careful, the US will be the next.
Many of today's enterprises are a gaggle of debt-addicted extreme financial engineering frogs floundering in tepid snake oil. Unfortunately, many will find their demise in the clutches of IP vultures.
The namesake of this book comes from the 1980 Comedy film "The Gods Must Be Crazy!" in which an empty Coca-Cola bottle is dropped from a plane onto a community of African bushmen. The bottle has a gift from the gods, but after it ensues fighting among the villagers, the tribal leader decides to return it to the gods by journeying to the end of the world. Through my own metaphorical coke bottle, I can see the dawn of the new empire. This book serves as a testament to restoring the current empire (capitalism and enterprises) before it is too late.
If we don't play our trump cards right, the next voracious Empire - the Middle Kingdom of China - will consume us; sending their errand boys to collect bills from the US and over a hundred other countries that it has economically and digitally colonized since the Economic Tsunami of 2008, through "Belt and Road Initiative" (BRI) to its "Digital Silk Road" (DSR).
"Make Enterprise Great Again" digs into the foundations of capitalism and traces the ideals, triumphs and zeitgeist of the Roosevelt years in order to "Build Back Better" – and to save us from the impending Fourth Reich.
Yeah! It's halftime, America!
