PODCAST: War (and Peace?) in North Korea

May 3, 2018


After years of Western propaganda paving the way for the invasion and occupation of North Korea, which sits right on the Chinese border, the Pentagon's best-laid plans have gone up in smoke. This week, economist Jerry Robinson explains how the new "peace" on the Korean peninsula may be playing right into the hands of Beijing and its own aspirations of regional dominance. Later, an update on the tax laws affecting cryptocurrency investors. Finally, Christian financial advisor Mike Mitchell challenges listeners to regain their focus when it comes to their retirement plan.

Show Notes

War (and Peace?) in North Korea
Segment begins at 05:51

For the first time since taking office in 2011 – and for the first meeting with another global leader – North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un recently met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. This appears like the ultimate checkmate by Beijing in the ongoing global game of geopolitical chess in the Far East. Economist Jerry Robinson explains the dynamics and the potential end game between Beijing and Washington.

  • Did Beijing just thwart a major potential advance by the Pentagon?
  • Déjà vu… Libya and Gadaffi
  • 3 significant reasons China desires peace in North Korea
  • What (or who) prompted Kim Jong Un’s recent public announcement of denuclearization?
  • The perception of peace is weapon #1 in China’s arsenal geared to expand their global influence
  • A coup for Beijing; blowback for Washington
