    A Recession Is Coming, And Maybe a Bear Market, Too

    At that time, the Fed ended its interest-rate hiking cycle and cut the federal funds rate with no ensuing recession. By my count, the other 12 times the central bank restricted credit in the post-World War II era, a recession resulted.

    Former Billionaire Races to Raise $80 Million and Avoid Jail

    Once worth at least $55 billion, India's Anil Ambani has about a day to piece together $80 million to settle long-pending dues with a vendor or go to prison. The tycoon's heavily indebted telecom business had promised to pay the local unit of Ericsson AB about 5.5 billion rupees ($80 million) for past maintenance services. The repeated failure to comply and Ambani's personal guarantee landed him in trouble last month, with the nation's top court holding him in contempt.

    The Best Financial Advice at Every Age

    This is the best time to make saving money a priority and the best time to avoid some pitfalls like getting into a lot of credit card debt,” says Ted Schumann II, managing partner of independent registered investment advisory firm The DBS Companies. There's one way to do both, and it's creating a reasonable budget that aligns with your priorities and includes at least some allocation toward savings, even if it it's a small one. That money should go toward building a small emergency cushion and into an employer retirement plan that matches your contributions — like a 401(k) — if you have one.

    General Electric should make this major change, once and for all

    General Electric (GE) Chairman and CEO Larry Culp has taken a sledgehammer to the industrial kingdom built up by former, much ballyhooed, CEOs Jack Welch, Jeff Immelt and John Flannery. From inking a $21.4 billion deal to selling GE's biopharma business to one-time employer Danaher, to evaluating other asset sales, and to likely soon kicking thousands of under-performing, well-paid GE HQ lifers to the curb, Culp is clearly trying to save the 127-year-old manufacturing icon. Before Culp truly enters the abyss of making corporate history and lining his pockets with millions, he should consider making a long overdue change to GE.

    Boeing (BA) Secures $250M Deal to Support LRSO Cruise Missile

    Boeing's B-52, which has been the U.S. Air Force's one of the most preferred bombers, is completely dependent on long-range cruise missiles and cannot continue in the nuclear mission beyond 2030 without LRSO. As B-52 is expected to play a primary role in the U.S. nuclear mission for at least next decade and ALCM is already well beyond its originally planned end of life, we may expect more contracts similar to the latest one to usher in from the Pentagon in the coming days. This, in turn, should prove conducive to Boeing.

    Lyft Aims for Valuation Near $20 Billion in Biggest U.S. IPO

At the targeted range, the San Francisco-based company's offering will be the biggest from a tech upstart since Snap Inc. went public two years ago, and the largest in the U.S. so far this year after the partial U.S. government shutdown put a damper on first-quarter listings.

    Working full-time for health coverage? Many who want part-time jobs are stymied by costs

    Many Americans who would like to dial back and work part-time have been discouraged from doing so because of sharp premium increases in the individual health insurance market the past few years, experts say. It had been rising the first few years after the Affordable Care Act (ACA) took effect in 2014 and provided part-time and freelance workers, as well as the unemployed, less expensive health insurance options than they previously had. Some of the health cost hikes can be traced to market forces, while others are due to Trump administration efforts to weaken the health care law, says Mark Hall, director of the health law and policy program at Wake Forest University and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
