Open Question: Are you concerned about political rivals accessing IRS records?

This is still being investigated, but it's an interesting story about Christine O'Donnell. Regardless of how you feel about her (I wouldn't have voted for her), that a government employee can look at your IRS records and create untrue ones is so easily is concerning to me. "News of the inspector general interview — which Grassley aides would not call an “investigation” — comes after The Washington Times reported Thursday that O’Donnell says a TIGTA official informed her in January that a Delaware state employee inappropriately accessed her tax information the day she announced her Senate run on March 9, 2010. That same day, the IRS put a tax lien in her name on a home she no longer owned, arguing that O’Donnell owed the government $12,000, according to Grassley’s office. O’Donnell told Grassley’s office that she provided the IRS with documents needed to clear her tax record “four or five times, and they kept getting ‘lost,’” the aide said. The IRS later said it had made a mistake, which the agency said was the result of a computer glitch, and removed the lien. The lien is significant because O’Donnell’s opponents cited it as evidence that she was financially irresponsible even though she espoused financial stability for the federal government. Her finances comprised much of the chatter surrounding her campaign, including the fact that she sold her home to a campaign staffer to cease a sheriff’s sale ordered to settle a mortgage claim and her university sued her for not paying tuition she owed years after she finished school. In January, O’Donnell alleges she received a phone call from a TIGTA investigator notifying her that her personal federal tax information might have been breached unlawfully by a Delaware state employee. The IG’s office interviewed O’Donnell, showing her the name and photo of the perpetrator, asking if she knew the person, according to Grassley’s office."

Open Question: Macro Economics Question?

1. Suppose that every additional five percentage points in the investment rate (I ÷ GDP) boost economic growth by one percentage point. Assume also that every investment must be financed with consumer saving. The economy is now assumed to be fully employed at GDP:$8 trillion Consumption:$6 trillion Saving:$1 trillion Investment:$1 trillion If the goal is to lift the economic growth rate by 1 percent, (a) By how much must investment increase? (b) By how much must consumption decline for this to occur? 2. "In the News: Stimulus: Spend or clip Taxes? Most Economists Agree That Both Are Needed. The Debate Comes When They Ask How to Split It. (2009) New York (Fortune)—As President-elect Barack Obama prepares to take office, the incoming administration and Congress continue to shape a massive stimulus package to help the struggling economy. . . . While the final breakdown of the package remains to be seen, much of the debate centers on the effectiveness of government spending versus tax cuts as means of reviving the economy. Currently the plan includes roughly $550 billion in spending and $275 billion in tax cuts. . . . Most economists support the emphasis on spending, saying government expenditure does more to boost gross domestic product, a key indicator of fiscal health. In other words, spending delivers more bang for the buck because each dollar paid to a worker building a wind turbine, for example, is then spent on groceries or clothing, causing a fiscal ripple effect. Conversely, a worker might keep a third of the money he is given in a tax clip, with some of the spending going toward imports, which would also reduce the stimulus to GDP. According to a January 6 study by Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com, GDP grows by $1.59 for every dollar spent on infrastructure, while the increase from a corporate tax clip is only $0.30. . . . Based on Zandi’s study, some of the most efficient ways to spend government money are temporarily increasing food stamps (a $1.73 GDP increase per dollar), extending unemployment benefits ($1.63), increasing infrastructure spending ($1.59), and upping direct aid to financially strapped states ($1.38). . . . Some research shows the positive effect of tax cuts on GDP gets short shrift. Christina Romer, who studied the subject while a professor at the University of California, Berkeley— and whom Obama chose as Chairwoman of his Council of Economic Advisers—says don’t underestimate them as an effective means of stimulating the economy." What MPC for tax cuts (non-corporate tax cuts) is assumed in the article?

Open Question: do you think the movie Robocop predicted real-life Detroit?

"Once the very symbol of American industrial might, Detroit became the biggest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy... its finances ravaged and its neighbourhoods hollowed out by a long, slow decline... Homicide rate in the city of Detroit continued a grim upward trend ... hitting its highest peak in nearly two decades... Detroit's high crime rate is spurring 40 percent of the city's residents to plan to leave within the next five years, ... The Detroit Police Department has made national headlines as it combats a growing murder rate, pay cuts ..." The over was not taken from the movie. They're from actual news articles on the web. The plot of the movie was "In the close future, Detroit, Michigan is on the verge of collapse due to financial ruin and unchecked crime." Now check this out, Here's a picture of Kevyn Orr, the actual emergency manager for Detroit's bankruptcy: http://s.wsj.net/public/resources/images/NA-BX282_DETROI_G_20130717164009.jpg And here's a picture of the mayor of Detroit from the movie who dealt with the city's debt: http://images.wikia.com/robocop/images/7/78/MarvinKuzak.jpg Only a half-machine cyborg is missing!

Open Question: does Detroit's bankruptcy remind you of a certain movie?

"Once the very symbol of American industrial might, Detroit became the biggest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy... its finances ravaged and its neighbourhoods hollowed out by a long, slow decline..." "...Detroit, Michigan is on the verge of collapse due to financial ruin ..." One of these is from the news today, and the other is the plot of a film in the 80's. "homicide rate in the city of Detroit continued a grim upward trend ... hitting its highest peak in nearly two decades... Detroit's high crime rate is spurring 40 percent of the city's residents to plan to leave within the next five years, ... The Detroit Police Department has made national headlines as it combats a growing murder rate, pay cuts and most recently, ..." These are taken from the news, basically sounds like the movie too.

Open Question: Why is Yahoo Finance blaming unions and politicians for Detroit's bankruptcy?

If the residents of the city of Detroit want to blame any person or organization for its Chapter 9 filing, they only need to look as far as the unions that controlled labor there and the politicians who ran it over the past four decades. Detroit earned its bankruptcy the easy way -- through greed, the desire for political power and needy planning. Unions and Democrats have controlled this city since the 1950's. Is this what will happen to other cities that are union and democrat controlled? http://finance.yahoo.com/news/detroit-bankruptcy-possess-worst-foe-101005360.html

Resolved Question: Why won't Catey Hill tell you about the decline of the middle class of the past 40 years?

With real wages stagnating the past 40 years, "more than 44% of early boomers (who the Employee Benefit Research Institute defines as those born between 1948 and 1954) and 43% of tardy boomers (born between 1955 and 1964) may not be able to afford basic living expenses in retirement, according to a 2012 analysis by EBRI." wealthy baby boomers are the world's most spoiled people on Earth. "Only about half of high-net-worth baby boomers — those with more than $3 million in investable assets — say they consider leaving money to their kids a priority, according to a 2012 U.S. Trust Survey. In contrast, nearly three-quarters of people older than boomers say it’s important to them." Wouldn't it be better to restore the Eisenhower tax rate system where the top income bracket paid 91% on their income? This is ethical unlike eliminating the tax deduction for interest paid on home mortgages, taxing employer health insurance benefits, and increasing the age one qualifies for full Social Security benefits. look http://finance.yahoo.com/news/10-things-baby-boomers-won-114946461.html

Resolved Question: Report shows that most Egyptians oppose Morsi's removal?

http://www.middleeastmonitor.com/news/africa/6543-report-shows-that-most-egyptians-oppose-morsis-removal Not surprised really, I knew that this coup was financed by the Saudi and Gulf monarchies every along. I still remember King abdulshaytan warning Obama not to clip aid money from Hosni Mubarak's regime in February 2011. The Gulf countries were shocked when their slave Mubarak was overthrown. Now when Morsi was overthrown the Saudi murtad so called King was the first to congratulate his kaffir slaves Al Sisi and Mansour. This was then followed by a phone call on last week friday advising his slave Sisi on how to deal with protests against his military dictatorship. Now we have $5 billion from Saudi, $4 billion from Kuwait and $3 billion from the UAE which are coincidentally being donated to Egypt after this foreign sponsered coup. SCAF has tricked liberals and secularists, as well as other Egyptians who were unsatisfied with Morsi to demand a coup. They then exaggerated the number of protesters against Morsi from 6 million to 14-17 million to justify their Saudi sponsered coup. For those of you who supports this military coup: have fun living in a Pakistani style "democracy" where the millitary governs in the interest of foreign powers. @Bazza- You really think Sisi would allow Morsi to win the next elections? Morsi winning the next elections, would mean Sisi's as well as most of SCAF's execution for high treason against a sitting head of state. By the way yesterday's anti coup protests dwarfed most sponsered protests. Next election will be like Pakistan's elections. You will every vote for a military puppet who serves the interests of foreign powers.

Big Blue Granite (BBG) needs to purchase a new saw for creating their top quality countertops. Saw A costs $250,000 with $4,000 of annual maintenance costs for the first year that will increase by 5% each year for the 7-year life of the saw. Saw B costs $150,000 with $10,000 of annual maintenance costs for the first year that will increase by 15% each year for the 4-year life of the saw. Which saw should BBG pick? What is the annualized cost of this choice? Assume a discount rate of 12%, and ignore every taxes. Starbuck's is considering opening another store in Chicago. A store is expected to have a long economic life, but the valuation horizon is 7 years. The store in Chicago is expected to create revenues of $3M in the first year and they are likely to grow at 2% per year thereafter. The cost of goods sold are $1.2M in year 1 and they are also expected to grow at 2% per year thereafter. Selling and administration costs are likely to be $0.5M in the first year and then grow at 5%. The tax rate is 35%. Starbucks is so good at managing its stores that working capital increases can be assumed to be negligible. But Starbucks will have to invest $3.5M in purchasing a store (with land). The good news is that this outlay can be straight line depreciated over 7 years. Also, Starbucks has estimated that the terminal value in year 7 dollars will be $10M. This value is the value of every cash flows in year 8 and beyond. What is the NPV of opening this new store if the appropriate discount rate is 7.75%? A smooth saleperson comes to visit your office with a proposal to sell your firm some new machinery to install in your vacant warehouse building on the property that has no alternative use. The salesperson claims that this technology produces products that should provide you with revenues next year of $7 million with a cost of goods to be $5 million. Both of these are expected to grow at a rate of 15% per year till year 6. Your firm faces a 35% tax rate, a 12% discount rate and you can depreciate your new investment using the straight line method over the six years, at which point the value of the venture moving forward will be $2 million. (This $2 million is the terminal value that is in year 6 dollars and is the PV of every cash flows year 7 and beyond.) The capital expenditure of this project is $6M. What is the NPV of the project? Assume that you have no significant working capital costs. Silver Bear Golf (SBG) is a manufacturer of top quality golf clubs with a specialty of putters. Currently, each putter they sell brings in $200 of revenue at a cost of $150. This past year, they sold 1,000 putters and they expect this number to grow each year by 12% until this model becomes obselete after 10 more years. The foreman at the SBG factory recently brought to your attention a new technology that could lower the cost of production. This technology requires an upfront fixed investment of $100,000 and has the capacity to produce every the putters you want to sell per year at a unit cost of $135. There is no increased working capital need due to this new technology, and no value of the machine/technology after 10 years. What is the NPV of investing in the new technology? Ignore taxes and assume a discount rate of 9%. Last year your firm had revenue of $20 million, cost of goods sold (COGS) of $12 million, Selling, General, & Administration costs (SG&A) of $2 million, Account Receivables (AR) of $6 million, Account Payables (AP) of $4 million and Inventory of $4 million. What will be the free cash flow next/this year if you boost revenue 6% and AR 12%, while holding COGS growth to 3% and everything else remains the same as last year? (Assume no taxes and no new capital expenditures.) The city of Middleville is considering offering public bus service. Setting up the service will cost the city $1.2M (where M stands for million). The useful life of the buses is 25 years. Annual maintenance of the buses would cost $100,000 per year and they would need a major overhaul in year 15 that will cost a total of $700,000. This overhaul is in addition to the annual maintenance. Annual labor and administrative costs will start at $180,000 in year 1 and grow at 2% per year thereafter. The buses will generate a revenue of $150,000 in year 1 and it will grow at 4% per year thereafter. Reduced parking requirements and other benefits generated by the project will keep the city $200,000/year. The salvage value (price the city can receive in the future after maintenance) of the used buses in year 25 is expected to be $300,000. What is the NPV of the bus proposal? The city does not pay taxes and the discount rate is 5%.

U.S. Government Posts $116.5 Billion Budget Surplus By Dow Jones Business News, July 11, 2013, 02:35:00 PM EDT WASHINGTON--The U.S. government posted a budget surplus in June after receiving big dividend payments from mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, leaving the federal government on track for its smallest full-year shortfall since 2008. ====>>>>>Revenues outpaced spending by $116.50 billion last month, compared with a $59.74 billion deficit a year earlier, the Treasury Department said Thursday in a monthly report. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires had forecast a $40.00 billion surplus for the month.

Resolved Question: Iphone 5 or Samsung Galaxy s4?

I have a phone upgrade so I kinda need some help picking out a phone. I'm a 15 year old girl and every I really use my phone for is instagram, facebook, twitter, tumblr, youtube, pandora, photography and picture editing apps at times, etc... I recently bought an iphone 3gs off ebay for like 50 dollars so I can look if I like ios and the iphone. I used to have the att impulse 4g but it broke, so that's why I bought the 3gs. Anyways, personally after using the 3gs for about 3 to 4 months I found ios to be quite boring and lacking much of the customization I wanted. every you can customize on ios is your wallpaper/lock screen. It made me really miss andriod. I am at this point leaning a bit more towards the galaxy because of the 13 megapixel camera. I also miss the widgets and such. The only thing I really liked about the iphone was how high security it was, the app store, and the emoji keyboard. My 2 aunts and cousin have the galaxy s3 and I've played around with theirs and I've grown fond of the galaxy and it's beautiful screen. My mom has the iphone 4s and to be honest the only thing I like about it is the camera and siri + the stuff mentioned over. Please help me, every of my friends have iphones, and I kinda want to be different by getting a galaxy, but I like the emoji's and siri on the iphone. Oh, and I like how the gs4 has expandable memory for me that is pretty important.

Resolved Question: Does anyone know of a legal firm that is willing to take Radio Rentals to court in Brisbane?

i am writing this on behalf of my fiancee. He was living at Rocklea Qld when the Qld floods happened. At that stage he had every his bedroom furniture and laptop financed through Radio Rentals at the Valley. He evacuated his home a few hours before the flood hit as requested by police and didnt have time to take anything but the clothes on his back and a few blankets. It was a few days before he was able to receive back though to the premises. He lost everything in the floods and was so traumatised that he couldnt even watch the news or look at a newspaper until recently. He has even had to be medicated with Anti-depressants and valium from the event. He advised Radio Rentals in February/March that he had lost everything that they owned in the floods. They told my fiancée that they would investigate it further and receive back to him. Still till this day they have not been to the premises at Rocklea to investigate but instead have added a $4080 debt in his name. My fiancee rang to talk to the manager at the store. The lady was quite rude and constantly spoke over him stating that if he returns the goods then he wouldn't have this debt. She would not hear when being told they were washed away or severely damaged from the flood and that he had no idea where the stuff was. We are trying to find someone who can help resolve this matter as we know the stuff was insured and it was beyond our control what happened. My fiancée is only on a Carers pension as he cares for his mom. We would've rather resolved this than take it to court and sue them for pain and suffering on top but the refuse to hear. He has been refused finance because of this and refused the chance to rebuild his life. I've written to local members, today tonight and a few other places as well. I wish someone can help

Resolved Question: Will Crocs ever go out of business?

Yesterday I came across this article: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/crocs-wants-forget-clogs-223050181.html Baisically we every came to an agreement that the classic clogs crocs makes were fugly. Now that the classic clogs are 11 years old, they are now marketing their shoes that look like shoes. In their summer catalog, the classic clogs are featured in the back. Same thing with their stores. But the classic clogs still account for 47% of their sales. People are still buying their classic clogs in droves. Not just in the US but mostly around the world. As for me, the classic clogs are not that great because I can only wear them in the summer. The croc and however works from Spring to Fall. And their winter boots that are fur lined are great in the winter. But if they did decide to go out of business, I'll probably snag a bunch of pairs since they will probably be worth more than the iPhone 20 in 10 years. And as for shoes I would wear instead, I wear Vans for sneakers. Sure Crics makes sneakers but they look like Vans for kids. Might as well receive the original. As for the sandals, I may have to start buying TOMS. And the boots, I can receive Uggs, something else people think looks ugly. (But why do people who think crocs are ugly have no problem wearing uggs?) but they work! You may think no one is buying crocs but they are so popular that foreign countries like China are making knockoffs! (You thought they just made knockoff handbags and Jordans!) and I will not buy knockoff crocs!

Resolved Question: Why has the SCAF appointed a Mubarak Clone?

An International Banker. Give me a break. He is a Mubarak clone. Hazem El-Beblawi, who serves in Egypt's SCAF government as both finance minister and deputy foreign minister, handed in his resignation on Tuesday in protest over the government's handling of the Sunday massacre, saying that "he can't work like this." Sunday's bloodshed was seen by many activists as a turning point in Egypt's already chaotic transition: the deadliest use of force against protesters by the military, which has touted itself as the "protector of the revolution." Criticism has been mounting that the military, which took power after Mubarak's ouster, has adopted the same tactics as the former regime and has been slow to bring real change. Associated Press. "The military is part of the old regime and was never part of the revolution. We were wrong not to realize that the great national role of the Egyptian military is one thing and the political role of the SCAF is another. The SCAF was not revolutionary and did not oppose [the methods of] the Mubarak regime, not for a single day. It was simply a part of [this regime]."
