Dr. Powell is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Suffolk University and Senior Economist at the Beacon Hill Institute.
Is it true, as Statists and the Media commonly claim, that Somalia is the example of a “free market” disaster? Today the word ‘Somalia’ has become the equivalent to the words ‘Chaos and Violence’. What is the Real Story?
In fact, many will be shocked to learn that Somalia today has an Exemplary Technological Infrastructure, Law, Order, a Court System and an External Defense System – all WITHOUT A GOVERNMENT. How have they done this?
In this interview you will learn how the Somali people – while still poor when compared to Western Standards – have become More Prosperous and Healthy without a government and How much of the suffering and violence that occurred in Somalia in the 1990′s was caused by many governments, including – unfortunately – the United States.
There are Many Lessons to be learned for the future of Africa – and the World – from Somalia.
Tune in to hear the Bigger Truth about Somalia. With Special Commentator Mr. Drew Hjelm. Hosted by Michael McKay.
