Season Finale - Father's Day - Game of Thrones - Spoiler Alert


Dave Brat’s “Christian Economics” Course at Randolph Macon Funded by Wall Street Bank BB&T Worshipping the Ayn Rand Selfish Money (Greed) Goddess /Idol

David Brat's work at Randolph-Macon College gives one more clue to who he is. 

Aside from chairing the economics department, he is director of the BB&T Moral Foundations of Capitalism program. In this program, underwritten by the bank BB&T's charitable foundation and inaugurated in 2008, colleges teach a curriculum that promotes free-market economics, and notably, the ideas of Ayn Rand.

The man behind the program, former BB&T chairman and CEO John Allison has described the curriculum as a way of helping save America from economic decline:

"Unless students (i.e., future leaders, teachers, professors, etc.) learn the principles that underlie a free society, the United States will continue to move toward statism and economic decline. The believers in "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" must retake the universities, or America will ultimately become a second-tier country with a dark future." 

That is the context in which BB&T began its program "The Moral Foundations of Capitalism."

The BB&T Corporation (Branch Banking & Trust) is one of the largest financial services holding companies in the U.S. with $184.7 billion in assets and market capitalization of $28.9 billion, as of March 31, 2014. Based in Winston-Salem, N.C., the company operates 1,824 financial centers in 12 states…

Since 2009, BB&T has outsourced it's back-end operations to Proview Global Administration Inc., a small BPO company located in Manila, Philippines. With around 150 employees, Proview Global Administration Inc. provides premium billing and reconciliation; benefits enrollment; COBRA administration and other financial-related services to BB&T. The officers of Proview Global Administration Inc. are former BB&T employees.
