Hispanic America: Capturing the Promise

Steven Cortes served on Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council and became the foremost Latino face of the Trump campaign over hundreds of national TV news hits and many local TV/radio programs geared to Latino markets in key swing states.

The head of the Hispanic 100, Mario Rodriguez, called Steve “the most articulate, ardent, and knowledgeable Hispanic television analysts on air today.”As the son of a Latin immigrant, Cortes brings audiences a firsthand look into how policies have both helped and hurt Latino communities in America.

Cortes makes the case for a renaissance within Hispanic America through empowerment policies including school choice, enterprise zones, deregulation, and immigration reform.

Cortes also specifically outlines the opportunities and potential pitfalls for American businesses regarding the hugely important Hispanic demographic.

 6 Contrarian Investment Strategies You Should Follow

Drawing upon the themes he voices regularly on his daily CNBC Commentary, and those described in his 2011 book Against The Herd. Steve Cortes challenges investors to think independently and develop a healthy skepticism towards the conventional market wisdom of Wall ST. and the financial media.

As a noted contrarian, Cortes presents six alternative opinions on major international investment events.

These alternatives include challenging the belief that China represents an emerging superpower; detailing why Japan’s economy is locked in an unalterable downward spiral; urging against investing in gold as a safety play; concluding that the housing market has not hit rock bottom; seeming assurance of America’s decline, that in fact the United States’ power is young — and growing.

Pulling no punches, Cortes presents genuinely actionable alternatives to common market wisdom. His contrarian forecasts — while sometimes counterintuitive, controversial, and even alarming — will have a profound effect on global markets, and Steve provides invaluable information on how and when to cash in.

As Neil Diamond so eloquently crooned, “on the boats and on the planes, they’re coming to America.” Americans, so long accustomed to massive immigration and successful continual assimilation of new arrivals easily lose sight of the singularity of America’s experience as the world’s foremost destination for talent, aspiration, and investment.

The son of an immigrant, Steve speaks passionately about the importance of immigration in the United States, and its primacy in forming a country unique in the world, culturally and economically. From the sweat-soaked produce worker in a California farm to the graduate level engineer in a lab at MIT, immigrants provide the energy, ideas – and even the reproduction – that America so badly needs and so powerfully harnesses.

Moreover, the immigration provides the only realistic “Silver Bullet” solution to solve so many pressing problems of the United States — from low housing demand to political climate resistant to this productive heritage of renewal.

He argues firmly, though, that the better traditions of America’s openness will continue to flourish, ensuring that america’s economic growth will not only continue, but accelerate, in coming decades as immigration continues to regenerate America.

Cortes presents actionable business and investing strategies to capitalize on this primary aspect of American exceptionalism.
