and so I decided if I really wanted to affect change, I just have to keep doing what I'm doing, which is to say what I believe in to the largest possible audience and not be one person among 435 in a congress that nobody pays attention to anyway.
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
The always-lively James Altucher entertained listeners of Stansberry Radio last week in an episode that boasted guest appearances by bond expert Michael Pento and famed NFL Quarterback, Dan Marino. Altucher went into detail about his decision not to run for political office saying his advisory team told him, “my platform was completely crazy.”
Altucher and show Co-host Aaron Brabham discussed the new book, “Choose Yourself!” released in June of this year. “We have to choose ourselves now for success” stated Altucher. “And I describe in detail my own story which involves making money and then going bankrupt and then making money again and going bankrupt again. And how I kind of finally came back and what I learned from the process step by step when I did for me. How I chose myself, why we need to choose ourselves now and then I describe how other people can start choosing themselves and I give lots of stories and details and so on.”
On his decision to not to run for congress, Altucher said after being in the political machine for “three seconds” he realized that the traditional political process might not be the most effective way to distribute his message stating, “and so I decided if I really wanted to affect change, I just have to keep doing what I'm doing, which is to say what I believe in to the largest possible audience and not be one person among 435 in a congress that nobody pays attention to anyway.”
Michael Pento, author of “The Coming Bond Market Collapse: How to Survive the Demise of the U.S. Debt Market” was a guest on the show. Michael and James discussed the destruction of the middle class, the pending collapse of the bond market, interest rates, and American debt.
Former NFL quarterback, Dan Marino also joined Altucher and Stansberry Radio Co-Host, Aaron Brabham and talked about Corporate Resources Management, a corporate staffing company that both Marino and Altucher are heavily involved.
