$50 million spent on Georgia congressional special election. 5 special elections in 5 states and 5 Democratic losses.
Can invest tax-free out of foundations. A large portion of many foundation assets is spent on administrative costs, which can be funneled off to benefit family.
Converting an asset into a security creates fictitious instruments of dubious value.
6 million jobs in new energy. Urgently need electronic, computer, robotic technicians and engineers. We need to teach those skills.
Amazon bought Whole Foods Market at $42/share and acquired 600 prime real estate properties. Amazon bought WFM for the supply chain, which it can capitalize on with vertical integration. Amazon now offering Prime Wardrobe. Invited Prime Customers have 7 days to return the “wardrobe” items for free and before being charged. Amazon has access to unlimited credit, so they can borrow the money to buy Whole Foods Market.
The Federal Reserve has increased money supply 4 times in the last 10 years. Yet inflation is only 2%. It’s not just increasing supply that causes inflation. Seeing inflation in the stock market though.
Fed said it will reduce balance sheet $30 billion a month in Treasuries, and up to $20 billion in MBS. Not selling, but not reinvesting the proceeds when they mature. Will the Fed really shrink the money supply? Over the last 12 months, according to the Fed H41 release, Fed has increased balance sheet by $11 billion of Treasury bonds and $24 billion MBS. The Fed doesn’t have the securities to sell that they are talking about. In the next 1-5 years, $581 million is maturing. Over the next 10 years, only $1.5 billion of MBS are maturing. Fed is using Reverse Repurchase Agreements to make it look like they’re selling bonds and MBS.
The Fed has $175 billion less of their members’ money to work with than a year ago. The Fed is trying to get the banks to take on the Feds’ bonds so the Fed can show a lower balance sheet. Is trying to keep the bond market from collapsing.
Capitalization of crypto currency is now at $130 billion, up from $30 billion last year.
Panics and depressions starting in 1837 have been repeating since then. Many pre-Civil War coins were melted, creating scarcity and making what’s left now worth even more. Don’t buy new coin releases, stick with classic American rarities, NGS rated, and not available in mass quantities.
Justin asks what Trump’s adversaries are afraid of losing. Free trade has led to the infiltration of our banking institution into sovereign nations of the world, resulting in those nations undercutting our manufacturing, tampening down competition from US manufacturers, and selling cheap into the US. A border adjustment tax would affect all the trade deals that have been made.
The uproar about Russian interference in US elections is really about Qatar and the pipeline.
Morgan sent a quote from Thomas Jefferson about nothing can be believed which is seen in a newspaper. “I will add, that the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.”
Andy rues about self-labeled journalists or reporters that are actually pundits. A journalist should only be telling the truth, whereas nowadays they are often only sharing opinions masquerading as the truth. News is not news anymore. Better news sources: One America News Network, NewsMax.
Juan asks if health insurance is still mandatory by law and will that be removed? Some legislators have a strong desire to remove the mandatory component. Andy says basic medical care could be achieved by removing “over 65” as a qualification and give everyone Medicare. If you want better health insurance, buy it privately.
Dr. Larry Lytle, inventor of QLaser, a handheld low-level laser device that Patrick likes to use, is on trial for criminal contempt, mail fraud, and wire fraud for selling the QLaser.
Tom says if the boys keep their focus on keeping house and rental prices increasing, that will be a major component of hyperinflation that keeps people from buying other things. Leaves more people needing to take assistance, which removes sovereignty from people, and facilitates the government making demands such as requiring vaccinations. Andy says the government has a large investment in housing.
1 in 4 people in US have no savings. Coins are a way to spend money and save it at the same time.
Can Andrew recommend any gold mining stocks? No. Gold stocks are either hedged and unhedged. Companies are into either exploration or mining. Know which one is which. The movie “Gold” gives insight into the gold exploration business.
Lucretia wonders if China is selling US bonds, will it affect housing prices? Selling bonds will affect interest rates, which will affect housing.
The entire state of Illinois is broke. So is New Jersey, but they hide it better.
A Hawaii resident wants to purchase a large house in Japan. In light of the predicted economic downturn in the fall of 2017, is this purchase advisable? Unless you’re going to live in Japan, don’t buy there for investment.
Juan asks if it is true that a small business shouldn’t expect to post a profit for the first 3 years. Startup costs create a high need for money. After infrastructure is in place, then you should make a profit. IRS requires the business to be profitable 2 years out of 5 to not be called a hobby.
Marc asks about transferring real estate to children. Create a trust.
Collectible coins are generally just personal property and don’t require accounting.
Off the book entities accumulate the money. E.g. Garden State Authority, with a board of director, and they’re in charge of the money.
