My end-of-year summary is now at hand. As non-donors, you may access it for $50. The discussion covers three shows and will deal with financial and economic commentary about 2017. Parts 4 and 5 today will deal with campus issues and foreign issues, mainly covering Venezuela, North Korea, China and the Middle East. The last part covers social issues of importance during the year. Please e-mail me or call for further information at (U.S.) 305-454-2707.

Your $50 donation can, of course, also represent your first quarterly, ongoing donation to the Wake-Up Call, in which case you need only go to the ‘DONATE’ tab right here and follow the instructions.
