Doug Wakefield

President, Best Minds Inc

Doug has been in the financial industry for 29 years. The focus since 2005 has been on providing investment research and weekly commentary on world markets as well as specific recommendations on third party trading managers. Doug writes the monthly research newsletter, The Investor's Mind.

The Bible clearly speaks to issues such as  marriage, sexual perversion, and the devaluing of human life.  And there can be little doubt that on the whole, America has decided to set aside God’s laws on these issues and do what appeals to our flesh.  We murder unborn children, promote hedonism, hyper-sexuality; we redefine marriage and family, and now euthanasia is being presented as the next “human right.” Advocates of assisted suicide claim they are fighting for the “dignity” of all and of course, for the good of society.

This morning we cover a story in Minnesota where a mother has been told by a court she has no right to insist that her teenage son dress like a boy, and then the sad story of an American Institution that long stood for character and morality, but caved to political and monetary pressures to allow transgenders:  The Boy Scouts.

In our first segment we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. for an economic update. We ask Doug if there is anything the Trump Administration can do to slow down the economic meltdown many are predicting. A few issues include the health care industry and student loan debt.

During the interview with Doug, we discussed a new word: cognitive dissonance

anxiety that results from simultaneously holding contradictory or otherwise incompatible attitudes, beliefs, or the like, as when one likes a person but disapproves strongly of one of his or her habits.” (2. an uncomfortable mental state resulting from conflicting cognitions; usually resolved by changing some of the cognitions.)
