The Allendale Republican Club will have its April meeting on Monday, April 3rd at 7:30 at Borough Hall (500 W. Crescent Ave Allendale)
We will be welcoming special guest speaker, Dr. Murrary Sabrin. Dr. Sabrin is a former U.S. Senate Candidate and is currently a Professor of Finance at Ramapo College. He will be sharing his insight on the current State of the Union.
All are welcome! Free admission.
I am pleased to inform you that the social entrepreneurship ebook is posted on the Sabrin Center site. I hope the essays will have an impact on the national dialogue about the best way to provide social services in communities throughout the country.
Late last year I was contacted by the vice chairman of New Jersey Libertarian Party asking me if I would consider accepting the party’s nomination for governor 2017. A few days later I had a conference call with both the chairman and vice chairman of the NJLP and discussed what a Sabrin for Governor campaign would look like in 2017.

So, their conservator, The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), recently eased the GSE’s lending caps so they can crank out, even more, loans.

“This is the moment in time where generic, over simplified advice, that sounds so good (and too good) shouted too an adoring crowd – should be taken as the siren, and clarion call to those who are diligent in preserving their wealth to buckle up, buckle down, and prepare in earnest.”
Cornell economics professor Robert Frank writing in today’s NYT business section suggests Trump may propose “Medicare for all” in light of the failure to repeal and replace Obamacare last week. I would not be surprised. Trump is not a limited government advocate.
Get in here democrats and explain this.
Downloaded some additional articles about analysts who identified the tech bubble in the late 1990s, which Greenspan said was unidentifiable.
“while consumer prices (and other measures of inflation in the real economy) were disinflating, the generous policies of the central banks resulted in rapid inflation of financial asset prices…”
