  • Plight Of The Fed Model [View article]
    Good stuff Trader,

    Hmmm ... Let's see if I got this right. Currently the top marginal rates are around 39% http://bit.ly/1idDavy . Executives can easily bump into that bracket. They are also compensated with stock options to give incentive to do well. Long term capital gains are at 15% http://bit.ly/1lS6h8x . Salary is only one part of the executives compensation http://bit.ly/1lS6hoN .
    All of these options has a dilutive effect on the stock. To counterbalance the dilution companies buy back shares supposedly with extra profits. With interest rates so low it behooves the company officers to borrow to buy back shares. The interest also has tax implications. So low interest rates and tax codes have distorted stock prices by the share buy back programs companies use to compensate executives. I also see a conflict of interest in that the directors that vote on the buy back plans are also the ones compensated by it. Am I wrong?

    I believe the goal is to be included in the IMF's SDR basket of currencies.

  • Gold Relative To Monetary Base At All-Time Low [View article]
    Stagflation ... Rising prices with anemic growth. The only thing keeping the economy afloat are wealth transfers. If you own gold or anything for that matter find a way to protect it cause when this breaks down... you ain't seen nothin yet.
