A 6 Step Plan for Trump to Make Our Money Great Again
Post Date: 2016-12-02 14:00:13 by Hondo68
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 ...
6 million Americans have stopped paying their car loans, and it's becoming a 'significant concern'
Post Date: 2016-12-01 21:41:47 by U don't know me
6 million Americans have stopped paying their car loans, and it's becoming a 'significant concern' Matt Turner Nov. 30, 2016, 11:00 AM There is a lot of talk out there about the auto-loan market right now. Hedge fund manager Jim Chanos has said the auto-lending market should "scare the heck out of everybody," while the auto-lending practices of some used-car dealerships has been given the John Oliver treatment on TV. It's a topic we've been paying attention to as well. In a presentation in September at the Barclays Financial Services Conference, Gordon Smith, the chief executive for consumer and community banking at JPMorgan, set out some eye-opening ...
Dollar General misses profit and sales forecasts
Post Date: 2016-12-01 21:26:51 by U don't know me
Dollar General misses profit and sales forecasts By Joshua Jamerson Published: Dec 1, 2016 8:26 a.m. ET Dollar General Corp. reported another disappointing quarter of same-store sales and posted lower-than-expected earnings as the dollar store again blamed results on reductions in food-stamp benefits. Shares, which have climbed 18% in the past 12 months, skidded 6.9% to $71.98 in premarket trading. Dollar General Chief Executive Todd Vasos said the company is trying to boost performance by cutting prices to boost store traffic, with some promising early results, though he warned that a full benefit to same-store sales "will not be immediate." He said headwinds due to changes ...
Will the 'Trump train' lead to more passenger trains in Alabama?
Post Date: 2016-11-14 09:23:32 by Willie Green
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 ...
The restaurant owner who’s ditching tips says she’s already lost servers over new policy
Post Date: 2016-10-28 09:39:13 by misterwhite
Cara Stadler says she just wants to do the right thing. On Tuesday, the owner of Portlands 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 doesnt 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 ...
Business among Salt Lake City’s homeless: corpses, tents and maybe a store exodus

A dead man lay 10 feet from the door to Richard Thomas' shop.An employee of his electric motor company heard the gunshot that struck the suspected drug dealer in the neck, but Thomas didn't rush to see the crime scene. He couldn't stomach it. He continued working as police stepped around the corpse on the cold cement. And he tried to focus as they covered it in a white sheet.With yellow tape enveloping the entrance to Thomas Electric, his family business, Thomas allowed his mind to drift over the episode."What's worse than a murder?" he thought. The dead man died in a drug deal gone south, according to the police report, just a few blocks northwest of a downtown ...

The Truly Scary Clowns Are Central Bankers
Post Date: 2016-10-11 11:37:46 by Willie Green
Central banks stimulative policies are having little effect in boosting economies and are losing steam. Its a plague that besets our nation, threatening our peace, the safety of our children, indeed our well-being. I speak, of course, of clowns. Creepy clowns, lurking in plain sight. Not some ghastly figure with Oompa Loompa orange skin and a petrified crown of yellow hair, or a seemingly staid matron with a horrifyingly cringe-inducing cackle when amused. No, these are circus-like clowns with painted-on grins, albeit incongruently fearsome ones. Theyre popping up everywhere, causing panic among the populace and grim warnings from the authorities in what purports to be ...
Working class white men make less than they did in 1996
Post Date: 2016-10-06 10:21:52 by Willie Green
No wonder they are frustrated. Working class white men saw their income drop 9% between 1996 and 2014, according to a new report from Sentier Research. This group, who Sentier defines as having only a high school diploma, earned only $36,787, on average, in 2014, down from $40,362 in 1996. Meanwhile, college educated white men saw their income soar nearly 23% over the same period, from $77,209 to $94,601. Published by two former Census Bureau officials, the Sentier report shines yet another light on the fortunes of the white working class. This group has become a force in the 2016 presidential election, serving as the backbone of Donald Trump's support. And the Republican ...

Wall Street: The Trump-China missing link

Wall Street: The Trump-China missing link By Pepe Escobar September 30, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - "RT" - The yuan is about to enter the IMFs basket of reserve currencies this coming Saturday - alongside the US dollar, pound, euro and yen. This is no less than a geoeconomic earthquake. Not only does this represent yet another step in Chinas irresistible path towards economic primacy; the Chinese currencys inclusion in the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) basket will also lead central banks and hyper-wealthy funds especially from the US to increasingly buy more Chinese assets. At the first US presidential debate, Donald Trump took no ...
Donald Trump’s Latest Conspiracy Theory Should Scare Investors
Post Date: 2016-09-27 09:00:39 by Willie Green
It seems that the Republican presidential nominee wants to control Fed policy. If you stepped away from the television to grab a beer during last nights debate, or to hide under the covers, you may have missed one of Donald Trumps favorite untruths about the Federal Reserve. In the middle of answering a question about tax policies, Trump said the stock market was currently in a bubble. The cause of this bubble? According to the Republican presidential nominee, it was the Federal Reserves decision, over the course of almost a decade, to keep short-term interest rates at record low levels. Fed officials have argued that their decision to hold rates near zero in the aftermath ...
Suddenly, the banks all agree: monetarism doesn't work and governments need to ramp up spending
Post Date: 2016-09-14 10:39:30 by Willie Green
Something unusual happened over the summer. Deutsche Bank, Barclays, HSBC, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America Merrill Lynch all published notes to investors that said something similar: Central bank monetary policy isn't working anymore and now is the time for governments to turn on their money spigots, running deficits if need be. It is the opposite of what we are used to hearing from bank analysts. These people are, after all, bankers. They are supposed to be apostles of Milton Friedman, the fighter pilots of capitalism. In the traditional banker view, governments only get in the way, budgets are for balancing, and spending is for cutting. But the 2008 ...
U.S. Jobs Rebound Isn't Helping the Missing Men
Post Date: 2016-09-08 06:37:21 by Justified
The unemployment numbers for August released last week showed that teenagers, a demographic group that has been dormant in the labor force in recent years, have experienced significant progress. The improvement, however, is further evidence that urgent attention must be paid to another group, the so-called missing men, the 7 million males age 24 to 54 who have disappeared from the workforce. There are two reasons that tracking the teen unemployment rate is so valuable. First, these workers don't have the structural or displacement concerns that their older counterparts sometimes have. There are no teen workers with mortgages on underwater houses, or whose jobs have been outsourced or ...
Employers Say They Can’t Find Good Workers, But the Fix is Simple
Post Date: 2016-09-08 06:28:50 by Justified
It may be hard to believe for people in certain areas, but America is still brimming with opportunity. Though the economy is still shaky, and were likely due for some recessionary rumblings in the near future, were sitting near full-employment and most people who want jobs are able to find them. Still, many parts of the country are suffering from the results of globalization. Employers have sent jobs to other parts of the world or axed them completely, in some cases. Yet, there are still millions and millions of job openings out there. And incredibly enough, there are many employers who are complaining that they cant find anyone to come work for them or at least ...

Which Items Will Disappear First During A Major National Emergency? By Michael Snyder, on August 17th, 2016 One day in the not too distant future, a major emergency will strike this nation, and that will set off a round of hoarding unlike anything we have ever seen before. Just think about what happens when a big winter storm or a hurricane is about to hit one of our major cities inevitably store shelves are stripped bare of bread, milk, snow shovels, etc. Even though winter storms and hurricanes are just temporary hurdles to overcome, they still cause many people to go into panic mode. So what is going to happen when we have a real crisis on our hands? We can get some clues about ...
Bye Bye Middle Class: The Rate Of Homeownership In The United States Has Hit The Lowest Level Ever

Bye Bye Middle Class: The Rate Of Homeownership In The United States Has Hit The Lowest Level Ever By Michael Snyder, on July 28th, 2016 The percentage of Americans that own a home has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded. During the second quarter of 2016, the non-seasonally adjusted homeownership rate fell to just 62.9 percent, which was exactly where it was at when the U.S. Census began publishing this measurement back in 1965. This is not what a recovery looks like. All throughout the Obama years, the percentage of Americans that own a home has gotten smaller and smaller and smaller. The reason for this, of course, is that the middle class in America is dying. Last ...

America Needs a Good, Old-Fashioned Economic Depression
Post Date: 2016-07-25 21:11:00 by U don't know me
America Needs a Good, Old-Fashioned Economic Depression By Jay Zawatsky The National Interest July 25, 2016 Describing what he called the crack-up boom, Ludwig von Mises, the great Austrian economist, said: The boom cannot continue indefinitely. There are two alternatives. Either the banks continue the credit expansion without restriction and thus cause constantly mounting price increases and an ever-growing orgy of speculation which, as in all other cases of unlimited inflation, ends in a crack-up boom and in a collapse of the money and credit system. Or the banks stop before this point is reached, voluntarily renounce further credit expansion, and thus ...

26 Million Americans Are Now "Too Poor To Shop" Study Finds A new study finds that roughly 26 million Americans remain "too poor to shop". The study, performed by America's Research Group, found that about 26 million Americans work on average two or three jobs at a time which, when added together, nets just shy of $30,000 in annual income. All while supporting anywhere from two to four children. The chairman of ARG, Mr. Britt Beemer, said in an interview with the NY Post that he first started looking into data when he was tracking a different indicator. Beemer first started tracking a group and surveying roughly 15,000 people to determine who had not finished ...

Worst Jobs Report In Nearly 6 Years – 102 Million Working Age Americans Do Not Have Jobs
Post Date: 2016-06-03 21:49:41 by U don't know me
Worst Jobs Report In Nearly 6 Years 102 Million Working Age Americans Do Not Have Jobs By Michael Snyder, on June 3rd, 2016 This is exactly what we have been expecting to happen. On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the U.S. economy only added 38,000 jobs in May. This was way below the 158,000 jobs that analysts were projecting, and it is also way below what is needed just to keep up with population growth. In addition, the number of jobs created in April was revised down by 37,000 and the number of jobs created in March was revised down by 22,000. This was the worst jobs report in almost six years, and the consensus on Wall Street is that it was an unmitigated ...
