Doug Altner talked about the recent minimum wage hike in Maryland to $10.10 per hour. This follows Connecticut's hike to a similar number. Is it really going to help the working poor? Is it just and does the government have the right to force businesses to increase their costs and lower their profits in the name of helping these people. Doug says no, for many reasons, not the least of which is that such well intended measures actually wind up increasing unemployment and putting companies out of business.

It's been a while since Chris Duane was on the show. So many silver coins have been produced since last we spoke. In his view not much has changed. Rather than waiting around for the systemic collapse, he has far more important things to do. Concentrating on friends and family and building those vital relationships that will help us all get through the coming collapse is vital and we couldn't agree more.

A century ago there wasn't a college in the country that taught entrepreneurship. Now, many colleges and universities across the country offer courses and programs in "entrepreneurship." Are they worthwhile? Entrepreneurship is apparently an occupational category now, yet when it comes to judging the value of what they teach, its practitioners are flying blind. Carl Schramm just wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on the topic and believes that they and their students could learn a lot from how the medical field evolved.

We spoke with Jim Rogers on changes taking place in the United States and around the world. As has been said repeatedly, the only constant in life is change. Jim's key to success has been to realize where the world is heading and then to get ahead of it. Obviously philosophy has been very effective. Now he sees the de-financialization of the world and a return back to the producers. Mining, agriculture and industries that actually make things will be the leaders in the coming era. Jim also shares some personal stories that are quite touching.

Why did Dorothy follow the yellow brick road? Film maker Joel Gilbert journeys across America to find out what's at the end of the Progressive rainbow - Utopia or something far worse? From the ruins of Detroit to the slums of Chicago's South Side, and from Denver's illegal immigration invasion to Newark's urban removal project, Gilbert pulls back the curtain. He confronts Progressives on his quest, and takes us deep into their political fantasy of paradise on earth. There's No Place Like Utopia is a humorous and horrifying exploration of Progressivism, amnesty for illegals, race relations, Islam in America, political correctness, and Barack Obama himself, who promises to "remake the world as it should be." But is Utopia a real destination for America? Or, does the true path to happiness still remain faith, family, and hard work - back home in Kansas?
