Utter Decimation: Men in Labor Force Down to 78 Percent in 2015 By Martin Morse Wooster | February 9, 2017 | 1:46 PM EST A man plays an Xbox game at his home in Jupiter, Florida. (AP Photo/Rick Silva) As the Trump administration continues to figure out ways to put people back to work, they have to deal with a simple demographic fact: there are tens of millions of American men, in the prime years of their working lives, who have dropped out of the labor force. It’s not that these men are trying, and failing, to get jobs. They’ve simply given up. What is causing this problem and what can be done about it? Nicholas Eberstadt explores this issue in "Men Without Work: The ...

Canadian Official On NAFTA Renegotiation: "Mexico Is In A Terrible, Terrible Position. We Are Not"

As reported yesterday, Mexico is not at all looking forward to starting the process of renegotiating NAFTA with Donald Trump, explicitly warning the US that "there are very clear red lines that must be drawn from the start." What these lines are will be explained by Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo and Foreign Affairs Secretary Luis Videgaray who are both meeting with US officials in Washington on Wednesday and Thursday, setting the stage with next week's visit from Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto. Only, Enrique Pena Nieto may not even come, because according to an AP report late on Wednesday, the Mexican President is rethinking his scheduled meeting with President ...

In the Shopping Cart of a Food Stamp Household: Lots of Soda
Post Date: 2017-01-14 17:35:33 by misterwhite
32 Comments
What do households on food stamps buy at the grocery store? The answer was largely a mystery until now. The United States Department of Agriculture, which oversees the $74 billion food stamp program called SNAP, has published a detailed report that provides a glimpse into the shopping cart of the typical household that receives food stamps. The findings show that the No. 1 purchases by SNAP households are soft drinks, which accounted for about 10 percent of the dollars they spent on food. “In this sense, SNAP is a multibillion-dollar taxpayer subsidy of the soda industry,” said Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition, food studies and public health at New York University. ...

It’s A Retail Apocalypse: Sears, Macy’s And The Limited Are All Closing Stores By Michael Snyder, on January 8th, 2017 It has only been two weeks since Christmas, and already we are witnessing a stunning bloodbath of store closings. Macy’s shocked the retail industry by announcing that they will be closing about 100 stores. The downward spiral of Sears hit another landmark when it was announced that another 150 Sears and Kmart stores would be shutting down. And we have just learned that The Limited is immediately closing all stores nationwide. If the U.S. economy is doing just fine, then why are we experiencing such a retail apocalypse? All over America, vast shopping malls ...

Trump's new economic math
Post Date: 2016-12-27 11:43:28 by Willie Green

Trump proved adept during the campaign at defining his opponents and could attempt to do the same on the economy if he shows limited success on his benchmarks. How will we know when America is great again? The economy is doing pretty well by traditional measurements such as unemployment — now at a nine-year low of 4.6 percent — and growth — currently at an annual rate of more than 3 percent. But Donald Trump regularly dismisses such numbers, describing the official unemployment rate as “total fiction” and slamming President Barack Obama for failing to stem the loss of industrial jobs. So now that the Obama economy is about to become the Trump economy, Trump is ...

No middle class, no republic: GOP plans to destroy America’s safety net will also kill democracy

Democracy only “works” for the top 10 percent of Americans Newt Gingrich openly bragged recently at the Heritage Foundation that the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress were going to “break out of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt model.”  That “model,” of course, created what we today refer to as “the middle class.”Ever since the election of Ronald Reagan, Republicans have been working overtime to kneecap institutions that support the American middle class. And, as any working-class family can tell you, the GOP has had some substantial successes, particularly in shifting both income and political power away from voters and ...

Pension Panic: The Coming Financial Bubble Nobody Is Talking About by Shaun Bradley For millions of public sector workers in the U.S., state-run pension funds are the only chance left for a comfortable retirement. In the hopes of providing a stable future for their families, an entire generation was duped into putting decades of their earnings into these supposedly ‘risk-free’ investments. Unfortunately, those who have entrusted the government to manage their life savings may end up destitute as a result. Budgetary shortfalls that have plagued Detroit for years are now spreading to other municipalities. Since 2008, six local governments have been forced to renegotiate their ...

The Millennial Job Deficit Jobs: While economists, the administration and the Fed all trumpet "near full employment," a stark reality intrudes: Most of the jobs created in the last decade have been temp or gig jobs, not permanent full-time work. It's a huge problem. From 2005 to 2015, fully 94% of the 10 million net new jobs were either temporary or contract gigs, says a new study by economists Lawrence Katz of Harvard University and Alan Krueger at Princeton University. The share of Americans — mostly Millennials — now doing what the study's authors call "alternative work" has risen from 10.7% to 15.8%. That wouldn't be so bad if it was what ...

Beijing fires trade warning after Trump appoints China ha by: Tom Mitchell in Beijing and Demetri Sevastopulo in Washington China has warned Donald Trump that “co-operation is the only correct choice” after the US president-elect tapped a China hawk to run a new White House trade policy office.

Tis The Season For Credit Card Debt: This Christmas Americans Will Spend An Average Of 422 Dollars Per Child By Michael Snyder, on December 19th, 2016 For many Americans, the quality of Christmas is determined by the quality of the presents. This is especially true for our children, and some of them literally spend months anticipating their haul on Christmas morning. I know that when I was growing up Christmas was all about the presents. Yes, adults would give lip service to the other elements of Christmas, but all of the other holiday activities could have faded away and it still would have been Christmas as long as presents were under that tree on the morning of December 25th.

Car-tastrophe - GM, Fiat Chrysler Idle 7 Plants; Over 10,000 Workers Affected by Tyler Durden Dec 19, 2016 5:15 PM Just weeks after Ford idled four plants "due to slowing sales", GM and Fiat Chrysler announced today that they will idle seven plants across Canada and US as they work to reduce near-record high inventories amid weakening sales. With an inventories-to-sales ratio above historical peaks (only beaten by huge spike in 2008 when sales stopped), the pain for automakers has only just begun... For example, GM's inventory of vehicles on dealer lots at the end of November stood at 874,162, up 26.5% from the same time a year ago. And so, as AP reports, General ...

The US's railroad network is made up of around 140,000 miles of track, but many of our trains are slow and outdated. Over the last couple of decades, countries like China, Japan, the UK, and France have made large investments in high-speed rail, and some groups in the US are urging that we do the same. Here's what a high-speed rail network could look like in the US.

A 6 Step Plan for Trump to Make Our Money Great Again

Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States in January. Americans will then find out then if "Make America Great Again" is more than a campaign slogan. It isn't going to be easy. On day one, he will inherit a $20 trillion federal deficit and a moribund economy increasingly reliant on low interest rates and central bank stimulus. There are plenty of economic problems to address, but the lack of sound money lies at the heart of them all. The Federal Reserve Note -- a privately issued, un-backed debt instrument that supplanted our gold and silver backed U.S. dollar -- has lost more than 90% of its purchasing power since Nixon severed the final link ...

Will the 'Trump train' lead to more passenger trains in Alabama?

Alabama passenger rail supporters hope that the phrase "Trump train" is more than a metaphor. They'll be pressing the new administration to bring back actual trains to the state, particularly the Gulf Coast. In their number is Perry Hooper, a former state representative from Montgomery who was Alabama's co-chairman for the Trump campaign. "It's a great form of transportation and people love to ride on trains, like my mother and friends that I have," said Hooper, who's also an advocate for privatized passenger rail. "From both a fun and economic development standpoint, it would be outstanding to have. I'm confident Donald J. Trump will make that ...

Cara Stadler says she just wants to do the right thing. On Tuesday, the owner of Portland’s Bao Bao Dumpling House and Tao Yuan in Brunswick announced her plan to jettison tips, pay all servers $15 an hour and tack on an 18 percent surcharge on checks. “Tips is such an arcane system. It just doesn’t make sense,” she said. Her motive, she says, is to “create stability in the workplace, because there is a disparity in pay.” Though servers make a paltry $3.75 an hour, with gratuity a waiter/waitress at Tao Yuan can easily pull down “$30 to 40 an hour,” she said. “In some cases a server is making more than the cooks, the bartenders and even ...
