This may be the first day that I legitimately lost my stuff (well almost). It all centers around an article a listener sent to me about a young girl in Colorado who decided she wanted to hold a protest to bring awareness to what she saw as an injustice that was causing teachers to leave her school district.
Once it became clear, she was serious she was contacted by two school board members who, without the consent of this young girls parents, put her in a room and questioned her for over an hour.
Had the questioning been designed to come to an amicable resolution one might be willing to overlook the blatant disregard for parental rights, and had this young girl not recorded the entire conversation we might not know what was said in that room. But she did, so we do!
I'm gong to play a portion of the conversation on the show but if you want to hear the entire recording you can do so here:
From there we'll move over to China and talk about their recent decision to create a gold fixing market denominated in Yuan. Now I know most of you don't understand what that means and truth be told not a lot of financial folks understand it. I'm going to tell you what I know and what I think it all means.
All that plus a story of price fixing, today on the JSP!
