Woodrow Wilson is regarded by many as being the worst President in US history, although some would say that the current occupant of the White House is giving him a run for his money. Just over 100 years ago, under Wilson, the income tax became law, the Federal Reserve was created, and an ever-growing government led to deficit spending and reckless money printing led to inflation that reached 12-13%. Our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio is Lawrence Reed. Your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with Larry about the current state of the economy, the similarities to the past, and the path back to a prosperous country where individual freedom and liberty are restored.
