    Interviewer appears rather short-sighted & naive in proffering meaningful inquiries.  Overall, not too insightful – ordinary.

    Important to note that this interview took place in 2014 when the redistribution tax code and Obama admin were busy crippling America. #MAGA

    I really admire Sam Zelko and thank you so much for posting this interview. I also enjoyed the panel that he shared in another video and he struck me as the only panelist that was zigging while the rest were zagging. That was very insightful since Sam has been through enough rodeos to recognize where we are in the business cycle. I'm with Sam.

    I learned a lot just listening careful. Mr Zell gave some real jewels. Speaking on supply and demand. The real reason why business is strive for growth. Redistribution of wealth kills growth. Foreign investment in other markets.
