One of the foundations of the American Dream has always been the hope of someday purchasing one's own home. In the past, however, it took nearly a lifetime of sacrifice before most people could afford to do so. Published January 8, 2012

WILLIAMS: 2012: An upheaval of monumental proportions

This year will culminate in a presidential election that I think will mark the beginning of a political upheaval of both parties. Expect jarring aftershocks come November that will reverberate throughout the country well into 2013. What results from those elections in terms of what sets this country on the right path again is murky, like swamp water. But change is a comin', and our elected leaders had better pay attention this time. Published January 1, 2012

Last month's ignominious failure of the deficit reduction committee to put forward even a basic outline for fiscal austerity leaves America shaking its head in shame, and what amazed me was the seeming lack of shame the committee members exhibited. Published December 4, 2011

WILLIAMS: Can Cain explain?

The backlash Herman Cain is receiving has little to do with the fact that he's a Republican, nothing to do with his skin color and everything to do with the fact that the media in the age of Twitter report first and ask questions later. Published November 6, 2011

WILLIAMS: The top of the hour is the time for prosperity

Countries and regions of the world are defined by the political ideologies they espouse. As different as these ideologies are, they all reside on the same spectrum, a circular spectrum like a clock; if you go far enough to the right or the left you will eventually end up in the same place.

This is my first visit to the land of Nigeria, and no amount of briefing could ever prepare one for this vast oasis of people and the incredible intellectual and business capital in this part of the world. Published September 11, 2011

WILLIAMS: Rich and poor

Perhaps one of the most misunderstood minorities today is not racial or ethnic. In fact, the minority I'm referring to comes with people of every race, color, creed and religion - the wealthy. Make no mistake about it. Building wealth is one of the most difficult things someone can do, which is why so few people do it. How few? Published September 4, 2011
