CongratsGringos-And good luck to you all.
Even better, the Cons prefer to take vacations - funded by taxpayers(call and ask where they are all right now?) then YELL OUT LOUDLY 'time is running out' for them to make some decisions on any matter of substance that will have an impact on small biz or the economy as a whole for that matter. That's just incredible.
I give 'em FIVE STARS or should I give them all TEN!!!
Total BS. The longer the majority in Congress (which is now the Cons), take to act on private sector jobs and incentives for small business, the government sector will continue to grow out of control. I have been involved in small business for decades, and have stopped sharing my ideas as they are a complete waste of time.
A Greek company with backing from Chinese and Arab investors would then build a huge park, a shopping center, a marina, 1,000 hotel rooms and a skyscraper apartment building on what's billed as Europe's largest undeveloped waterfront tract.
The privatizations have met with varying degrees of resistance, with some arguing that stressed governments such as Greece's are selling assets at below-market prices. Opponents also say privatization reduces job security and transfers wealth to a rich elite.
Wonder if Janet is showing them how to print their way out of the mess ?
Maybe if they withdraw (their own) cash, they will be asked for collateral and to sign a document to repay at a higher interest rate!
most banks will re-structure 30year loans - now 40+ year mortgages. Make the payment and negotiate, as the banks knows if the property goes vacant they (banks) will lose money - paying taxes, refurbishing and up keeping -etc. a vacant property or farm. If you default on a restructured mortgage, then you are not a fit creditor. In essence, your job (as long as you have one) is your new credit (score).
People that don't know this, just walk away and the banks still win as they write down the losses- which the Feds don't want, unless they have to step in and bail out, which may never happen again, under Dodd/Frank etc.
I REPEAT - it does not matter what the interest rate is!
Case in point - Do you pay the interest rate or the payment at the bank on a mortgage/ loan? If the interest rate is 50% and the payment is $5million - YOU MAKE THE PAYMENT not the rate !! If you can't make the payment, then you become a form of Greece.
The bank will take what ever payment you can make and either stretch out the payment to a longer term - e.g.. a 30 year mortgage becomes a 45 year mortgage, and you payments are less!! WALLAH !! Just like that- this is the NEW MATH !! LEARN IT and SHUT UP.
the census data is incorrect, and the LA Times article is speculative. The population of CA is closer to 38 million and census workers were advised not to count migrant workers. The exclusion of migrant farm workers and illegals, are included in the data and this skews the overall count. However, by population, whites are outnumbered by other than white races as I posted above. Again, Hispanics, Asians, African American and other races outnumber the white population in CA.
I have attended several census meetings and each state followed guidelines as meted out by field supervisors (varying interpretation) of the census guidelines. Some of the census workers barely knocked on doors, or just asked neighbors who lived in the areas, answering their doors or questionnaire, to provide information on their neighbors. There is also other information that has shown more whites from other states entering CA as the Hispanic population is being displaced, in the recession, since the last census count. The births and death (reported data) is also skewed. For example, if a new born has a Hispanic mother and a white father, the information transmitted remains skewed.
Untrue. There are more other than white races (by population) - total Hispanics (illegal population included)+Asians+others amount to more than the White population.
Your statement is more likely true of the State of TX looking at the census data.
Not everyone goes to Harvard or can they get in there. A handful has to come from Kansas etc.
It's a system they have, so deal with it.
What I meant was their import are (minute) compared to what it was before (Japan) was a manufacturing giant.
Today, all they do is import what they need to build their R&D in Japan - transfer that to offshore manufacturing facilities (where demand exists) and IMPORT the PROFITS !!! (A Brilliant strategy).
How is the US doing on that strategy?
And what does Pearl Harbor have to do with anything? We still defend the Japanese territories from Chinese aggression. Are we winning there too? LOL!
Funny you should ask that? How does that have an effect on rates?
Try looking up the word - 'MANIPULATION' to get a better clue!
Whoa (so simple)! Are you even aware they use manufacturing facilities in the US (Toyota, Nissan etc.)? So. Korea does the same.
They (Japan) have to import NOTHING! And if you believe the profits are divested or remain in the US, then I have a very LARGE BRIDGE - at a heavy discount that I can offer to sell you!
Where are the majority of US goods manufactured- China! Our only major exports are aircraft and technology (information they steal), which the Chinese buy up/ steal the most.
and while you are at it, take a look at the Trade data.
THEIR exports compared to ours! Remember consumers purchase 'inexpensive' Chinese goods at Walmart. Phones, electronics and Cars with a Japanese brand (even though they are manufactured in the US). Toyota, Nissan etc. - all take their profits off shore after manufacturing/ sales are done in the US.
Good try, nonetheless!
if one wants to know how ZIRP worked and when rates will rise in the US. That's the closest data we will ever have.
