With Congress able to get tax reform legislation passed before the end of 2017, most Americans and small businesses will be able to reap the benefits in their upcoming tax filings for last year.  However with that aside, one of the more interesting consequences of the Tax Reform and Jobs Act is how it is also acting as both a trade policy, and even as a foreign policy. By foreign policy we mean that it has ...

Reactions from the liberal Governor of New York following tax reform proves that the Democrats never really wanted to ‘tax the rich’

Liberals, Progressives, and the Democratic Party in general have for a long time used the 'tax the rich' mantra as an agenda item in their campaigns and rhetoric.  And this despite the fact that the majority of 1%ers in the U.S. are of a liberal persuasion.

The rich got richer in 2017, but mostly on paper as their wealth is tied primarily to the stock market

According to a new study from Bloomberg, the world's richest people saw an overall increase to their wealth by over $1 trillion as the divide between the 1% and 99% got wider. However what is missing from this equation is the underlying truth that all the machinations done by the central banks over the past six years have been primarily dedicated towards siphoning wealth upward, and this can be seen by the ...

It appears that there is irony in the new Tax Reform and Jobs Act since it does tax the rich while aiding nearly everyone else

While being a completely bogus and straw man argument, Americans can be assured that whenever Democrats speak out against the cutting of taxes for individuals and corporations their tired old mantra will always be that the Republicans just want to cut taxes on the rich.

Tax reform bill passes and immediately businesses promise to put their savings in the hands of the workers

On Dec. 20, Congress finally passed its historic Tax Reform Act and we emphasize the word historic because the government had not done any meaningful tax reform since the Reagan years in the 1980's.  And perhaps what is least astounding in the vote is that not one single Democrat crossed the aisle to vote Yea with the Republicans. However as they say, irony is a dish best served cold.  And within hours of N ...

As we rush headlong towards the Christmas break, and perhaps more importantly for many the end of the fiscal year, passing tax reform before Dec. 31 has never been a greater priority for Congress over the past few years.  But with five Republicans holding out from standing lock-step with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's coalition, negotiations over minute details could mean the difference between passage o ...

Not taking into consideration the shipping of America's industry and production offshore, the other biggest thing hanging over any potential economic growth is the nation's dilapidated infrastructure.  And with Wall Street corporations not even interested in producing anything of value, but simply making money off making money through their financialization of everything, when you couple this with the Feder ...
