  • Wall Street Breakfast: China Data, Oil Rout Weigh On Markets  [View article]
    Well, apparently, the Dallas Fed Reserve and others disagree with your conclusions.

    “Despite the sector’s growth, the U.S., as a net importer of oil, benefits from lower oil prices because an oil price decline means higher real (inflation-adjusted) incomes for consumers, lower energy costs for firms and lower headline inflation.”

    “Depending on which economic model is used, a 50 percent oil price decline yields a 0.3 to 1 percent increase in U.S. GDP.” Dallas Fed Economic Letter April 2015

    And I still disagree with you. Period.

    GGL - I suspect we will spend the next 8 years blaming the last guy, just like the Obama admin did.

    GGGL.
    1. The US Personal saving rate is lower now than in 2011, 2012, 2013.
    2. It is not a closed system. When I spend money on gas that was refined from imported crude, it partially leaves the US economy.
    3. Money if fungible. It doesn't matter how I pay for gasoline, whether cash, credit card or whatever. It all comes out of my paycheck. If I spend $100 a month less on gasoline, it's likely going to get spent on something else, especially at the bottom end of the earnings pyramid.
    4. PS. It doesn't mean "positive impact for economy" it means pretty much zero sum (except for import crude leak). What it doesn't mean is negative for economy.
    5. PSS. Look at Airline Earnings.

    GGL....if the average consumer is not spending more, than are you saying the savings rate is going up? Even if wages are stagnant, nobody saves, and everyone spends. If they don't spend on gas, they spend on something else. It's a zero sum game.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Is Yahoo On The Block?  [View article]
    Well, a little different than the crooked Clinton Foundation. At least Zuckerberg hasn't started soliciting donations from foreign governments in exchange to allow them to create Facebook Pages for the leaders of those governments.

    Mark Kusnir. Sir, the obvious main reason for Zuck's move is to avoid paying capital gains taxes on $45 Billion, saving billions to be able to do with as HE directs the foundation instead of giving it to the government.

    No one can effectively spend that kind of money on themselves. But giving $15 Billion in taxes to the government is a sin.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: S&P Turns Negative For 2015  [View article]
    Thanks to all for your contributions. I giggled and laughed while I am in my hotel in Hong Kong. Of course there are SOME things they make and do.... but really, any computers, cell phones, TV's, high powered cars....oh wait how about guns, or is that Belgium.

    I love the architecture. I lived in Paris back in the day when it was even better. I love the art. I love the food.....but, but.....

    Wait - a - MINUTE. "The French Economy Rebounded"...... I didn't even think the French had an economy. I am still trying to figure out one thing they actually produce beside Airbus airplanes that I can't fit my feet under the seats thereof.

    And of course, theories, hypotheses, observations, conclusions and models never change with constant challenging and explanations, I mean like from global cooling to global warming to climate change to who knows what next. I understand that by the year 2100 it's supposed to be 160 - 170 degrees F in the middle east. Wow, that's gonna be unbearable.

    You seem to be good at picking the half of the question you want to answer.

    Civilian Labor Force for those over 55 is right at 40%. This number is up from below 30% in the 90's. It's back to what it was in 60's. That means 33% more people are in the workforce now (those over 55) than was the case in 90's.

    The Civilian Labor Force over 55 years old sits not at 35 Million. That is more than double what it was in 80's and early - mid 90's.
