PHILADELPHIA—While no one can predict the highs and lows of the economy, nationally syndicated host and biblically responsible investing authority Dan Celia has written about several concepts that are now becoming reality.
As a regular columnist for Townhall.com, Celia wrote in February of last year that “The Freight Train of the Economy Could Be Derailed.”
“With 7.6 million job openings, this article written over a year ago is seeming more like prophecy then opinion,” he said. “For all the efforts we’re making to have sustainable growth in the economy, if it were it not for a few political and trade issues, growth would be continuing at unusually high levels. But I wanted to see the administration make sustaining growth a priority. That has not been done, and there is no possible way, without some of the things I’ve indicated in this article, that we will continue to have sustainable, efficient growth that will continue to lead to American prosperity. If we get back on track, we will need to fix this one thing to sustain the growth.”
In the article last winter, Celia pointed to the importance of an adequate workforce and enough workers to sustain a growing economy. Legislation is needed that will change and streamline the legal immigration process, he said. More than enough workers are willing to contribute to the American economy, but between bureaucratic costs and regulatory burdens, it will be very difficult to keep pace with the demand for workers in a thriving economy, he added.

Additionally, in January 2018, Celia wrote about “Living in an Economic ‘Twilight Zone,’” where he noted that to create a thriving economy, “we cannot ignore the need to simultaneously shrink the size of government. We cannot believe that spending our way into prosperity.”
“Since I wrote this,” Celia said, “we have added $1 trillion to our national debt.”
Celia discusses these and other global and economic headlines on his daily, three-hour program, “Financial Issues,” heard on about 650 television and radio stations nationwide and reaching millions more on several television networks. Through the program, writing and daily interactions, Celia, who leads Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM, www.FinancialIssues.org), has helped people of faith honor God with their finances and be free from a fear of money.
