  • Jah-mek-anomics

    Sometimes important facts are forgotten due to failing memories; no memories having not been aware in the first instance; not being born; not reading; or being victims of our discontinuation of our great oral traditions.

    Recently, several international banks were revealed publicly for handling more than two trillion dollars of illicit transactions of an unsavory nature between 1999 and 2017.
