War, Douglas MacArthur, Israel, Hawaii & Investing | James Ellman Finneran's Wake

    • Society & Culture

James Ellman is an investor and author. 

His latest book, “MacArthur Reconsidered” treats its subject in a refreshingly unbiased way. 

With a steady hand, James carves away the hero-worship, and leaves us with a true picture of America’s most controversial general, the iconic Douglas MacArthur. 

For those of you interested in military history and politics, this is an excellent book!

In this chat, James and I discuss: 

MacArthur’s life; His military record and the reason(s) why it must be reconsidered; The Pacific theater of WWII; Imperial Japan; The Bataan Death March; The Philippines; Corregidor; Matthew Ridgway; The economy of Hawaii; Climate Change; Working as a Hedge Fund manager; How to manage your money in times of international upheaval; The War between Israel and Hamas; Life as an author; The politicization of our military; Comparisons of modern America and Rome; The possibility of an American “Caesar”; Caesar v. Cincinnatus.
