Six Years After Recession, 93% Of Counties Still Haven’t Recovered…

President Obama’s track record on the economy has always come under scrutinization; more so with the upcoming 2016 presidential election. However, during the final State of the Union address, Obama decided to defend his record on the economy, by stating, “Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction.” This is most likely […]

Multiple Job Holders On The Rise… Again

In the past, wrote a blog entry about the surge in multiple jobholders and how it can be used as a good indicator in pointing out future market trends. Less than one year later, that surge appears to be happening again. Along with the anemic growth in economic output, slow wage growth and weak productivity […]

College Should Be Free, But Not For The Reasons You Think

I’ve already discussed the problem with skyrocketing tuition cost, and the many factors (well, the only factor) attributing to that growth. The problem is that none of the policies enacted thus far as worked to mitigate the problem. So, maybe we should consider the possibility of making college available to everyone. That’s a very popular […]

Fed Study: Federal Financial Aid Drives Up College Tuition Cost

I wasn’t exactly sure a study for this would ever surface because it really isn’t necessary. Understandably, the issue over surging college tuition cost has been vexing for most people. After all, economics is a difficult concept to grasp, and people (as a collective) usually cannot understand the mistakes they’ve done until some professors in […]

Good Thing I Never Wanted To Be A Lawyer…

Good Thing I Never Wanted To Be A Lawyer…

I could never truly understand the psyche and the mentality of someone who chooses (voluntarily) to enter the law profession. Most people dislike lawyers because they represent people and corporations without caring about who they are, what they have done (or accused of), who they have wronged or how culpable they are. I guess this […]

What Happened To All The Freelancers?

What does it take to be a business owner these days? Not much, especially with technology. You have the success of private car or ride sharing technology initiated by Uber. You also have AirBnB, which basically allows people rent out their own homes, apartments or property, bringing substantial supplemental income to ordinary people. Then, you […]

Hillary Clinton Uses Misleading Productivity Chart In Part-Time Debate

I already knew this would happen on day, so it’s not a surprise why I am writing about this again. You might have seen this chart somewhere before: Anyone who believes Americans aren’t working hard enough hasn’t met enough American workers. pic.twitter.com/wyS1p8zcDo — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 9, 2015 I wrote about on one of […]

Racist Will Always Be Racist, With Or Without A Confederate Flag

I promise this topic contains some modicum of finance in it. Why else would I entertain such a senseless topic. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week or so, you’ve heard about the Charleston, South Carolina gunman Dylan Roof. He is the white supremacist who went on a shooting rampage in […]
