Georges Khneysser is an accomplished wealth manager, advising "ultra-high net worth" individuals. In this week's podcast, he discusses the positive role wealthy individuals play in providing jobs. But he also notes today's social unrest and the coronavirus crisis should prompt governments -- especially the U.S. government -- to do more in terms of providing basics for their citizens.

Georges Khneysser is a global citizen. He's originally from Lebanon and has lived in several countries.  He is a citizen of Lebanon and Belgium and now resides in Los Angeles. 

Khneysser is a banker who has, for several years, been advising wealthy individuals on how to manage their companies and investments.

Khneysser has some interesting observations regarding income inequality and how the wealthy -- and governments -- are responding to the current challenges.

Some governments are handling all this better than others, according to Khneysser. He holds some strong opinions on how governments should best manage their countries. 

American freedom is still an idea that inspires worldwide, he says, but that seems less certain than before, he adds.  Despite today's uncertainties, Khneysser believes something good will come from the coronavirus crisis.
