Our January Guest 

Kenneth Nelson

​“The History of America’s Economic Growth

from President George Washington to President Donald Trump” 

How does the size of the Federal Government impact economic growth?

Which Presidents governed over the smallest Federal Government and what were the economic results?

Was John F Kennedy right or Jimmy Carter?  Calvin Coolidge or Herbert Hoover? Ronald Reagan or George Bush? Grover Cleveland in his first term or Grover Cleveland in his second term?
Do we see the same results around the world?

We'll answer these questions on January 3rd!
