He will explain why. As fierce advocate of limited government and free market economics Rogers offers a blistering critique of current policies of the West that are sewing the seeds of its own destruction. He tells why he is happy he sold his mansion in Manhattan and moved to Singapore where he and his wife are raising their two daughters.
