CNN immediately apologized to Anthony Scaramucci, the Trump transition team member who was reported to be involved in the meeting. The story's author, Thomas Frank, was among those who resigned, according to a network executive who requested anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss personnel issues.
Current low interest rates have created an environment where the old ideology about mortgages no longer applies. In the past, our financial goals included homeownership free and clear of mortgage debt. We have entered an era where we now suggest you refinance and maintain a mortgage for the rest of your life, or at least to a 30-year mortgage term. I think we all can agree that low mortgage interest rates benefit the homeowners that own a mortgage and qualify for these low rates. Before you start thinking we have lost our minds and there is no way you will attempt to maintain a long-term mortgage, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of holding a mortgage. What was once conveniently saved monthly for you by your bank or lending company is now your responsibility.
Minor expenses can cause major financial problems. “Millennials are falling victim to common financial vices, such as spending money in coffee shops,” according to a new study by personal-finance site Bankrate.com. The average millennial dines at a restaurant or buys take-out food five times per week and nearly 30% of this age goup say they buy coffee at least three times per week. More than half of millennials (54%) eat out at least three times a week, compared to roughly one-third of Generation X-ers and baby boomers. “Often, it’s the minor, habitual expenses, such as take-out and alcohol, that wreak havoc on your budget,” Sarah Berger, a financial analyst at Bankrate, said. “Preparing meals
The solution appeared simple: require employers to pay people more. In 2014 The City of Seattle passed a ordinance to increase the minimum wage from from $9.47 to $15 over two to four years (depending on company size and if they pay benefits). Economists Alan Krueger and David Card studied a small wage increase, from $4.25 to $5.05, and estimated it didn’t appear to have a large impact in employment in fast-food restaurants.
When Jim Cramer first started trading, he didn't like rules. He believed they either weren't helpful or would cut into his upside and prevent him from making more money. After getting burned too many times, he learned the value of discipline. "The rules
White House senior adviser and real estate titan Jared Kushner reportedly had a $285 million loan from German institution Deutsche Bank approved one month before his father-in-law’s Election Day victory last year, the Washington Post reported Sunday. The massive loan went to Kushner’s family-run real estate company, but the story also states that Kushner personally guaranteed the loan and he opted not to include it on his financial disclosure form with the Office of Government Ethics. Given the size, the time it was granted—as Kushner worked both for President Donald Trump’s campaign and his company—and Kushner’s decision not to disclose, the loan is reigniting questions about whether the Trump family's businesses represent a conflict of interest.

The co-owner of a pharmacy deemed responsible for the deaths of 76 people in a national meningitis outbreak tearfully apologized to the victims on Monday and was sentenced to nine years in prison, far less than the victims had wanted. "I'm sorry for your extraordinary losses," Barry Cadden said, wiping his eyes. A dozen victims who were sickened or lost loved ones asked the judge to give Cadden the harshest penalty allowed under the law for the deadly 2012 nationwide fungal meningitis outbreak, which sickened hundreds of people.

Senate leaders scrambled Tuesday to rescue their health care bill, in deepening jeopardy as opposition from rebellious Republicans intensified. The defections proliferated after Congress' nonpartisan budget referee said the measure would leave 22 million more people uninsured by 2026 than President Barack Obama's law.

If you ask American consumers questions about their credit scores, there’s a pretty good chance they’ll get the answers wrong. Less than half (44%) of consumers knew electric utilities companies use credit scores to determine prices and whether to approve potential new customers, compared to 53% in 2016, according to a new survey of 1,000 people from Consumer Federation of America (CFA), an association of nonprofit consumer organizations, and VantageScore Solutions, a consumer credit scoring company. What’s more, just 59% of consumers knew cell phone companies use this data, compared to 68% who knew that in 2016. Still, more consumers are checking their scores. Some 56% of consumers said they
The Great Restructuring in retail continues. In the wake of a disappointing holiday season, J.C. Penney (JCP) said recently that it will close 138 stores stores by the end of the summer. The store closures represent 13% to 14% of the company's current store base and less than 5% of annual sales. They have a negligible impact on net income. J.C. Penney said same-store sales at the locations were "significantly below" the remaining store base and operate at a much higher expense rate due to poor productivity. The company expects $200 million in annual costs savings from the efforts. "We believe closing stores will also allow us to adjust our business to effectively compete against the growing

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi met on Sunday with the creme de la creme of corporate America, in a CEO roundtable that contrasted sharply with a U.S. President Donald Trump 's recent tech roundtable. Modi, who was expected to meet with Trump on Monday, attended the high-profile meetings set up via the Indian embassy, in which executives were said to have expressed concerns over India's current regulatory environment, which has made it difficult to invest and expand on the subcontinent. In the World Bank's annual report for 2017 on the ease of doing business globally, India ranked at 130 out of 190, with poor scores on factors including starting a business, resolving insolvency and paying taxes.
Gold prices crashed yesterday in what was a surprise move as far as the traders and the markets were concerned. It is believed that the crash in the gold prices was due to a large sell order coming through and that the sell order was atleast a couple of billion in size and this caused the prices to crash towards the 1240 mark within a couple of minutes. The dollar has also been gaining in strength across the board since the release of the strong durable goods data and if this dollar strength continues in the short term, we should see the gold prices coming under pressure and pushing through the 1240 support and this is then likely to move the prices towards the strong support at 1220.

By Alan Baldwin LONDON (Reuters) - The gloves are off and the fight is on between Formula One title rivals Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton. "Nobody wanted to see the schmoozing anyway, so now the gloves are off," the Austrian told Sky Sports television after Hamilton had dubbed the Ferrari driver a "disgrace" and suggested they sort things out "face to face". Baku, with the championship favourites colliding and a podium of drivers who could scarcely believe their luck, provided enough drama to keep the championship bubbling away for months to come.
Many energy investors pay the most attention to the companies that pull oil and natural gas out of the ground. However, there are many more steps that need to happen before you can buy the gasoline and other energy products you use every day. In particular, refiners like Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) and Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO) rely on cheap sources of crude oil and then reap profits based on the spread between their input costs and what they can charge for gasoline, diesel fuel, and other refined products on the open market. In addition, Phillips 66 does a lot more than refining, with midstream operations as well as chemical manufacturing facilities. Conditions for refinery stocks were tough last
Thousands of teachers, social workers, first responders, nurses, doctors and other government and nonprofit workers could have their federal student debt forgiven starting in October. Many of these borrowers have complained to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that their loan servicers have given them incorrect information about public-service loan forgiveness and made errors with their loans that disqualify them for the program. Here's how the public-service loan forgiveness works: If you take out a federal student loan, you have your loans forgiven after making 10 years of on-time payments and by working for an employer the Department of Education deems to be serving the public good.
