  • Wall Street Breakfast: How Will The Wild Week End?  [View article]
    My understanding is Uber insures the passenger. None on the driver and car. Insurers would frown on this, to say the least, if there is an accident while Ubering and the driver files a claim.

    Income is reported on a 1099-K which throws you into a Schedule C if you want to do things right.

    Lots of creative thinking going on there in Albany. Does the bill provide suggestions as to how a semi-truck driver is supposed to clamber up on top of the trailer and safely wield a broom?

    You can qualify for it regardless of where you work. Even if you are self-employed. I guess what you're saying is those in PR who work for the gummint make too much to qualify. This could be the case.

    Extend the Earned Income Tax Credit to Puerto Rico?

    This is an incentive for low income people to have kids (or have more kids). Plenty of fraud associated with this tax credit.

    "Fees and other charges" ... and don't forget books.

    I was helping someone who is teaching a college level course in Personal Finance and I looked up the McGraw Hill textbook they're using. $180 bucks!

    Roundup is a very effective herbicide.

    George Wallace said in referring to Congress, "In terms of legislation passed, there's not a dime's worth of difference between the two parties."

    Even more true today.

    James, good point about the land line phone polls. There was a poll done in the first half of the 20th century that incorrectly predicted the outcome of a presidential race because it was based on telephone polling and only the wealthier households had phones.

    Long ADM. Good to mention FinViz. I have used FinViz for several years now. I like its screening tool and I like it that I can compare an individual stock to its peers.

    Enterprise Value is just a different way of expressing company total value. The link also says it is a theoretical takeover value.

    Ethanol attracts water. Prompts the need to change fuel filters more often. So sez the mechanic I use.

    Even bringing things up to date can have serious delays because when "federal" money (that is, OUR money) is involved, there are environmental reviews that can drag on and on. No project is shovel ready until all the appeals have been heard and dealt with, and the permit, with all its limitations and conditions in IN HAND.

    I'm speaking from personal, work experience.
