AVOID THE SOLOMON GRUNDY SYNDROME

Solomon Grundy, a nursery rhyme character, is known for living a life that repeats itself in a monotonous cycle. His life is a series of predictable events, starting with his birth on Monday and ending with his death on Saturday. While this character may be fictional, the concept of living a repetitive and unfulfilling life is all too real for many people. Living like Solomon Grundy means going through the motions without truly experiencing life. It means settling for mediocrity and routine instead of embracing change and growth. It means being stuck in a cycle of monotony, where each day ...

The US-China Trade War: Who Dominates Global Trade?

The ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China, initiated by former President Donald Trump in 2018, has evolved into a multifaceted geopolitical standoff driven by ideological differences. Trump's administration imposed punitive tariffs on China, citing concerns over trade deficits and allegations of unfair economic practices. Subsequently, the scope of this dispute expanded to encompass broader strategic rivalry and ideological competition. President Joe Biden has continued many of Trump's policies, emphasizing the clash between democratic principles and autocratic governance in the context of U.S.-China relations. However, the underlying rationale for the trade war has been criticized as flawed, with ...

Some of these crises have been financial, like the banking and currency crisis, while others have been economic, like the debt crisis and the sub-prime crisis. But, perhaps the ones that we remember most vividly are social crises like food shortages and high unemployment, along with political and international crises like the current Ukraine-Russia conflict.

Irrespective of the type of crisis, there ...

What Backs the United States Dollar?

Prior to 1971, the US dollar was backed by gold, silver or a combination of both. In 1971, President Nixon officially ended the gold standard and made the United States dollar a fiat currency. Fiat means “let it be done” in Latin. Therefore, a “fiat currency” derives its value from government decree rather than any physical commodity. After the collapse of the gold standard in 1971, the US entered into agreements with Saudi Arabia and other oil-producing nations where they agreed to price and sell their oil exclusively in US dollars which was nicknamed Petrodollars. In return, the United States ...

The Pyramids At Giza Were Built to Endure Eternity- But How?

The Giza Pyramids, built to endure an eternity, have done just that. The monumental tombs are relics of Egypt's Old Kingdom era and were constructed some 4, 500 years ago. Egypt's pharaohs expected to become gods in the afterlife. To prepare for the next world they erected temples to the gods and massive pyramid tombs for themselves—filled with all the things each ruler would need to guide and sustain himself in the next world.
