Thought Leadership

Our team’s thoughts and research has been solicited and published by some of the world’s leading independent publications. We’ve written on topics such as workforce development, job creation, sustainable economic platforms, technological innovation and integration, etc. Some of our articles:
  • China and the Future of American Jobs – Though it might not have been classified as an “economic miracle,” the $6.7 Trillion-plus the US has sent to China as payment for manufactured goods, could have helped a huge number of American communities get out of poverty…
  • How the West Can Win the Innovation Race With China – Though China is dead set on winning the innovation race, few Americans yet know we are in a new Cold War with China that will likely soon include the EU against China as well…
  • 3D Printing is Key to Winning the Innovation War with China – The United States has had the opportunity to fortify its Self-Reliance for over 30 years and it’s been more or less squandered in the name of globalization, which has mostly been defined to mean China manufacturers pretty much everything for the rest of the world…
  • Why I Asked Jesse Jackson about the Media – By citing gross social and economic inequalities that reflect the consequences of various governmental policies, Jackson effectively touched a student body whose own economic circumstances make them feel far removed from the repercussions of social injustice…
  • Why I Fight for Haiti – Instead of exclusively investing in companies and products that will fundamentally reshape the world we live in, my passion is using my entrepreneurial experience to heal underprivileged communities…
