I like his views about government-big business– big bank partnerships. His comments also seem to resonate well, especially among young American voters since The Bern (Bernie Sanders) has been making headlines in the US primaries by giving Hillary Clinton a run for her money. So I thought I should share them with you on my Double 7 Day. And of course, I expect responses from all of you.–Din Merican
