Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

In this 10th episode show of Creating Wealth where we discuss a topic of general interest, Jason Hartman invites New York Times Bestselling author Vivek Ramaswamy to speak about his book Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America's Social Justice Scam. 

Today’s economic landscape is rife with companies using economic force as a substitute for free speech and open debate to settle political and social questions. Vivek Ramaswamy is concerned with this new cancer, both in our culture and in our private sector, which threatens to kill the dream that Martin Luther King Jr. had 60 years ago.

This new philosophy that says that your identity is based on your race, sex, religion, or your sexual orientation is reductive. It takes the true diversity of voices in our country, the true diversity of perspectives within each of us and reduces us to nothing more than the embodiment of a group identity.  

Vivek makes the case to separate capitalism and democracy in order to preserve the integrity of both.
