DekhoSunoJano #23 Most powerful Country on Earth | Power And Weakness Of America The U.S. economy is marked by resilience, flexibility, and innovation. In the first decade of the 21st century, the economy was able to withstand a number of costly setbacks. These included the collapse of stock markets following an untenable run-up in technology shares, losses from corporate scandals, the September 11 attacks in 2001, wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina along the Gulf Coast near New Orleans in 2005, and the punishing economic downturn that became widely known as the Great Recession, which officially dated from December 2007 to June 2009 and was caused in part by a financial debacle related to subprime mortgages. For the most part, the U.S. government plays only a small direct role in running the country’s economic enterprises. Businesses are free to hire or fire employees and open or close operations. Unlike the situation in many other countries, new products and innovative practices can be introduced with minimal bureaucratic delays. The government does, however, regulate various aspects of all U.S. industries. Federal agencies oversee worker safety and work conditions, air and water pollution, food and prescription drug safety, transportation safety, and automotive fuel economy—to name just a few examples. Moreover, the Social Security Administration operates the country’s pension system, which is funded through payroll taxes. The government also operates public health programs such as Medicaid (for the poor) and Medicare (for the elderly). In an economy dominated by privately owned businesses, there are still some government-owned companies. These include the U.S. Postal Service, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Amtrak (formally the National Railroad Passenger Corporation), and the Tennessee Valley Authority. #most powerful country on earth #USA #DekhoSunoJano #HistoryOfAmerica The federal government also influences economic activity in other ways. As a purchaser of goods, it exerts considerable leverage on certain sectors of the economy—most notably in the defense and aerospace industries. It also implements antitrust laws to prevent companies from colluding on prices or monopolizing market shares. Despite its ability to weather economic shocks, in the earliest years of the 21st century the U.S. economy developed many weaknesses that pointed to future risks. The country faces a chronic trade deficit; imports greatly outweigh the value of U.S. goods and services exported to other countries. For many citizens, household incomes have effectively stagnated since the 1970s, while indebtedness reached record levels. Moreover, many observers have pointed to an increasing gap in income disparity between the small cohort at the top of the economic pyramid and the rest of the country’s citizens. Rising energy prices made it more costly to run businesses, heat homes, and transport goods and people. The country’s aging population placed new burdens on public health spending and pension programs (including Social Security). At the same time, the burgeoning federal budget deficit limited the amount of funding available for social programs. .............................................................

What Is Pension,https://goo.gl/r1938O A pension is a fund into which money is added during an employee's employment years, and from which payments are drawn to support the person's retirement from work in the form of periodic payments. A pension may be a "defined benefit plan" where a fixed sum is paid regularly to a person, or a "defined contribution plan" under which a fixed sum is invested and then becomes available at retirement age. Pensions should not be confused with severance pay; the former is usually paid in regular installments for life after retirement, while the latter is typically paid as a fixed amount after involuntary termination of employment prior to retirement. The terms "retirement plan" and "superannuation" tend to refer to a pension granted upon retirement of the individual. Retirement plans may be set up by employers, insurance companies, the government or other institutions such as employer associations or trade unions. Called retirement plans in the United States, they are commonly known as pension schemes in the United Kingdomand Ireland and superannuation plans (or super) in Australia and New Zealand. Retirement pensions are typically in the form of a guaranteed life annuity, thus insuring against the risk of longevity. A pension created by an employer for the benefit of an employee is commonly referred to as an occupational or employer pension.Labor unions, the government, or other organizations may also fund pensions. Occupational pensions are a form of deferred compensation, usually advantageous to employee and employer for tax reasons. Many pensions also contain an additionalinsurance aspect, since they often will pay benefits to survivors or disabled beneficiaries. Other vehicles (certain lottery payouts, for example, or an annuity) may provide a similar stream of payments. The common use of the term pension is to describe the payments a person receives upon retirement, usually under pre-determined legal or contractual terms. A recipient of a retirement pension is known as a pensioner or retiree. Types of pensions Employment-based pensions A retirement plan is an arrangement to provide people with an income during retirement when they are no longer earning a steady income from employment. Often retirement plans require both the employer and employee to contribute money to a fund during their employment in order to receive defined benefits upon retirement. It is a tax deferred savings vehicle that allows for the tax-free accumulation of a fund for later use as a retirement income. Funding can be provided in other ways, such as from labor unions, government agencies, or self-funded schemes. Pension plans are therefore a form of "deferred compensation". A SSAS is a type of employment-based Pension in the UK. Some countries also grant pensions to military veterans. Military pensions are overseen by the government; an example of a standing agency is the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. Ad hoc committees may also be formed to investigate specific tasks, such as the U.S. Commission on Veterans' Pensions (commonly known as the "Bradley Commission") in 1955–56. Pensions may extend past the death of the veteran himself, continuing to be paid to the widow; see, for example, the case of Esther Sumner Damon, who was the last surviving American Revolutionary War widow at her death in 1906.

Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz stops by Google for a conversation about personal investing and retirement savings. You can find her latest book on Google Play: http://goo.gl/ByTQv2 . When it comes to planning for retirement, times have changed. In stark contrast to past generations, people are now facing the perfect storm: longer lives, fewer pensions, and less government support. The unfortunate truth is that many of us who are approaching or over 50 haven't adequately saved or planned for what could be decades of living without a regular paycheck. What's more, given the complexities of the financial landscape, myths and misconceptions about important financial decisions can derail the best laid plans. Many of the projections are grim. But Carrie Schwab --Pomerantz sees a different future for the millions of Americans who are prepared to step in and take control of their financial futures. In this easy-to-use guide, Carrie cuts through today's financial complexity with clear advice on how to make the best decisions about planning, saving, investing, insurance, healthcare, and caring for loved ones. The reality is that we're facing a new world of taking care of ourselves. The good news is that Carrie's book shows readers how to do just that, tackling questions such as: How can you get your kids through college without drawing down your life's savings? How should you change your investing strategy as you get closer to retirement, and in retirement? When should you plan to start taking Social Security benefits, and how might your spouse impact that decision? What type of insurance will you need to supplement Medicare? Through her nationally syndicated "Ask Carrie" column, her leadership of Charles Schwab Foundation, and her work through two White House administrations with the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability, Carrie has become one of America's most trusted sources for financial advice. No, we can't plan our finances the same way our parents did at our age. But Finances After Fifty paves a clear path for the future.

Senate Republican leaders announced joint Senate and House targets last week which prioritize tax relief, education, and transportation. Their agreement also calls for a $515 million dollar reduction over current budgets for the areas of state government, jobs and the environment. On Tuesday, May 2, State Auditor Rebecca Otto and state agency leaders expressed concerns about the cuts to members of the Conference Committee on State Government Financing. Among those testifying, State Auditor Otto said that her agency divisions would be facing a 21 percent budget reduction, which would adversely impact their ability to exercise their responsibilities overseeing $20 billion dollars per year in public expenditures. One area incurring the budget cuts, she explained, would be the division investigating theft of public funds. Another provision would prohibit intra-agency transfers, which she explained would be unconstitutional because it fails to adequately fund the State Auditor. Representative Jim Nash, R-Waconia, argued that the State Auditor transferred $100,000 from its pension division to pay for a lawsuit challenging the 2015 law allowing cities to contract with private auditors. He said, "There's a reason that we're doing that, so you don't deprive people who should be getting audits..." Tom Baden of MN.IT Services, the state's IT agency, expressed concerns about the proposed budget's impact on cyber security. "The current levels are simply insufficient to deter the threat that's coming at us in ever increasing waves," he said. Department of Administration Commissioner Matt Massman, Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner Myron Frans, Department of Revenue Commissioner Cythnia Bauerly and Human Rights Commissioner Kevin Lindsey also testified about their concerns with the proposed agency reductions.

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common bankruptcy filed. Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates most debts such as credit cards, medical bills, judgments, mortgage deficiencies, collection accounts, and many other debts. The elimination of debt through bankruptcy is called a “discharge,” which means you are no longer obligated to pay the debt. Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates all debts except student loans, child support, overdue taxes from the past three years, and court-ordered restitution. The biggest benefit of filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that it only takes 90 days to finish. It’s one of the quickest debt relief options available. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as a “liquidation bankruptcy” because the Chapter 7 bankruptcy court appoints a “trustee” who can sell or “liquidate” your unprotected assets and use the sale proceeds to pay your creditors. The nice thing about Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that you know which assets are protected and which are not before you file. In most states, you can often keep your car, home, clothing, jewelry, household items, and 100% of retirement accounts. The property you get to keep after filing for bankruptcy depends on your state’s “exemptions”. Each state has an exemption law that delineates the type and amount of property a debtor can keep away from his creditors. All states allow you to keep 100% of your retirement accounts. Your rights to receive certain benefits, such as social security, unemployment compensation, veteran's benefits, public assistance, and pensions are completely exempt regardless of the amount received. No one can take away those future benefits if you file bankruptcy. Bankruptcy protects cars and homes depending on the amount of equity held in the property. What happens if you are above the exemption amounts or you have unprotected assets? In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the trustee has the right to sell the property and disburse the proceeds to your creditors. Some trustees allow the debtors to buy back the items from the trustee. Another option is to sell unprotected assets before you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Many Internet postings advise against selling any property before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy as it may be seen as keeping an asset out of the hands of a trustee. However, anyone can sell property before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy so long as the asset is sold at fair market value. If you do sell an asset prior to filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and assuming it was at fair market value, the next question you have to answer is, “what did you do with the money?” This is where people get into trouble. Some people will sell the car at fair market value and then give the money to their father to repay a loan from him. That is a preference payment the trustee can recover. Your father would have to return the money to the trustee. Instead, invest the proceeds in a retirement account, pay your taxes, or spend it on personal needs. Some people fear Chapter 7 because they worry the trustee will sell their home and other assets even though it rarely happens. The latest statistic from the U.S. Trustee Program with the Department of Justice, which is the federal agency that oversees bankruptcy cases and trustees, is that only 5% of Chapter 7 cases have any assets that can be sold. This means 95% of the people who file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy do not lose anything. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a powerful way to get out of debt, and with all powerful tools, there are some restrictions. In October 2005, the bankruptcy reform laws were revised with a new requirement: a “means test.” This test evaluates your income to determine if you are eligible to have your debts dismissed completely under Chapter 7 or whether you need to enter into a debt restructuring plan under Chapter 13. You may qualify to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy if your income falls below the median income in your resident state based on your family size. For example, in Colorado, if you are a single person who makes less than $50,000 per year, then you can file for Chapter 7. If you earn more than the median income, you may still qualify for Chapter 7 provided you are unable to set aside at least 25% of your income to repay your creditors. If you don’t qualify for Chapter 7, it doesn’t mean you cannot file bankruptcy as there are two other bankruptcies available.

The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) is a program of the United States government to purchase assets and equity from financial institutions to strengthen its financial sector that was signed into law by U.S. President George W. Bush on October 3, 2008. It was a component of the government's measures in 2008 to address the subprime mortgage crisis. The TARP program originally authorized expenditures of $700 billion. The Dodd--Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act reduced the amount authorized to $475 billion. By October 11, 2012, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) stated that total disbursements would be $431 billion and estimated the total cost, including grants for mortgage programs that have not yet been made, would be $24 billion. This is significantly less than the taxpayers' cost of the savings and loan crisis of the late 1980s but does not include the cost of other "bailout" programs (such as the Federal Reserve's Maiden Lane Transactions and the Federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac). The cost of the former crisis amounted to 3.2 percent of GDP during the Reagan/Bush era, while the GDP percentage of the latter crisis' cost is estimated at less than 1 percent. While it was once feared the government would be holding companies like GM, AIG and Citigroup for several years, it was reported in April 2010 that those companies are preparing to buy back the Treasury's stake and emerge from TARP within a year. Of the $245 billion handed to U.S. and foreign banks, over $169 billion has been paid back, including $13.7 billion in dividends, interest and other income, along with $4 billion in warrant proceeds as of April 2010. AIG is considered "on track" to pay back $51 billion from divestitures of two units and another $32 billion in securities. As of December 31, 2012, the Treasury had received over $405 billion in total cash back on TARP investments, equaling nearly 97 percent of the $418 billion disbursed under the program. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troubled_Asset_Relief_Program Elizabeth Ann Warren (née Herring; born June 22, 1949) is the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts and a member of the Democratic Party. She was previously a Harvard Law School professor specializing in bankruptcy law. Warren is an active consumer protection advocate whose work led to the conception and establishment of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She has written a number of academic and popular works, and is a frequent subject of media interviews regarding the American economy and personal finance. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, Warren served as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel created to oversee the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). She later served as Assistant to the President and Special Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under President Barack Obama. In the late 2000s she was recognized by publications such as the National Law Journal and the Time 100 as an increasingly influential public policy figure. In September 2011, Warren announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate, challenging Republican incumbent Scott Brown. She won the general election on November 6, 2012, to become the first female Senator from Massachusetts. She was assigned to the Senate Special Committee on Aging, the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee and the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_warren

The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has lamented that the Goodluck Jonathan administration failed to defeat the Boko Haram sect. He said this at the Open Government Partnership (OGP) week held at the NAF Conference Centre in Abuja on Monday. He said the Buhari government came into office on the back of a three-pronged agenda – ensuring security, two rebuilding the economy, and third, vigorously prosecuting the fight against corruption. “This last issue, corruption, has been an existential issue for Nigeria, threatening the very fundament of our existence. It has ensured that, for too long, the resources meant for the majority, have been cornered by a greedy minority”, he said. “This issue of corruption underlines every aspect of our national life, from our security situation to the state of our economy. It was the reason why, in spite of record oil revenues between 2011 and 2013/14, we saw no savings, and very little investment in infrastructure and jobs, and, in spite of the billions of dollars reportedly invested in security, the Boko Haram insurgency and other cases of insecurity did not abate. “Our government has adopted a two-step approach to dealing with this scourge of systemic corruption. The first is to stop grand corruption and the accompanying impunity. The second step and the more enduring one, is what this week is about, creating a self- sustaining system that assures transparency and accountability. “We have, since we assumed office three years ago, made remarkable progress in pushing the frontiers of transparency and accountability in the Federal Government. One of the first things that the President did when we took office was to establish the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), to coordinate our reform efforts in this regard. “We inherited a Treasury Single Account (TSA) system that existed mainly as an idea, without any committed implementation. Since the Presidential Order by President Buhari in August 2015, we have made remarkable progress in expanding the reach of the TSA, so that today, we are almost at 100 percent compliance. “In addition to joining the OGP, and developing a National Action Plan in 2016, the Federal Government also established a Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit (PICA), housed in the Federal Ministry of Finance, to clean up the Federal payroll and pensions systems, across all our Ministries, Departments and Agencies. “PICA’s work in this regard has helped the Federal Government save more than N200 Billion by eliminating ghost workers. Like the TSA, we are also aggressively expanding the rollout of the Government Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), to ensure that the loopholes that enable payroll fraud are permanently blocked. PICA also oversees the Whistleblowing Programme we launched in December 2016.

The influence of Congress on the presidency has varied from period to period depending on factors such as congressional leadership, presidential political influence, historical circumstances such as war, and individual initiative by members of Congress. The impeachment of Andrew Johnson made the presidency less powerful than Congress for a considerable period afterwards. The 20th and 21st centuries have seen the rise of presidential power under politicians such as Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush. However, in recent years, Congress has restricted presidential power with laws such as the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 and the War Powers Resolution. Nevertheless, the Presidency remains considerably more powerful today than during the 19th century. Executive branch officials are often loath to reveal sensitive information to members of Congress because of concern that information could not be kept secret; in return, knowing they may be in the dark about executive branch activity, congressional officials are more likely to distrust their counterparts in executive agencies. Many government actions require fast coordinated effort by many agencies, and this is a task that Congress is ill-suited for. Congress is slow, open, divided, and not well matched to handle more rapid executive action or do a good job of overseeing such activity, according to one analysis. From 1789 to 1815, members of Congress received only a daily payment of $6 while in session. Members received an annual salary of $1,500 per year from 1815 to 1817, then a per diem salary of $8 from 1818 to 1855; since then they have received an annual salary, first pegged in 1855 at $3,000. In 1907, salaries were raised to $7,500 per year, the equivalent of $173,000 in 2010. In 2006, members of Congress received a yearly salary of $165,200. Congressional leaders were paid $183,500 per year. The Speaker of the House of Representatives earns $212,100 annually. The salary of the President pro tempore for 2006 was $183,500, equal to that of the majority and minority leaders of the House and Senate. Privileges include having an office and paid staff. In 2008, non-officer members of Congress earned $169,300 annually. Some critics complain congressional pay is high compared with a median American income of $45,113 for men and $35,102 for women. Others have countered that congressional pay is consistent with other branches of government. In January 2014, it was reported that for the first time over half of the members of Congress were millionaires. Congress has been criticized for trying to conceal pay raises by slipping them into a large bill at the last minute. Others have criticized the wealth of members of Congress. Representative Jim Cooper of Tennessee told Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig that a chief problem with Congress was that members focused on lucrative careers as lobbyists after serving––that Congress was a "Farm League for K Street"––instead of on public service. Members elected since 1984 are covered by the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). Like other federal employees, congressional retirement is funded through taxes and participants' contributions. Members of Congress under FERS contribute 1.3% of their salary into the FERS retirement plan and pay 6.2% of their salary in Social Security taxes. And like Federal employees, members contribute one-third of the cost of health insurance with the government covering the other two-thirds. The size of a congressional pension depends on the years of service and the average of the highest three years of their salary. By law, the starting amount of a member's retirement annuity may not exceed 80% of their final salary. In 2006, the average annual pension for retired senators and representatives under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) was $60,972, while those who retired under FERS, or in combination with CSRS, was $35,952. Members of Congress make fact-finding missions to learn about other countries and stay informed, but these outings can cause controversy if the trip is deemed excessive or unconnected with the task of governing. For example, the Wall Street Journal reported in 2009 that lawmaker trips abroad at taxpayer expense had included spas, $300-per-night extra unused rooms, and shopping excursions. Lawmakers respond that "traveling with spouses compensates for being away from them a lot in Washington" and justify the trips as a way to meet officials in other nations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Congress

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common bankruptcy filed. Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates most debts such as credit cards, medical bills, judgments, mortgage deficiencies, collection accounts, and many other debts. The elimination of debt through bankruptcy is called a “discharge,” which means you are no longer obligated to pay the debt. Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates all debts except student loans, child support, overdue taxes from the past three years, and court-ordered restitution. The biggest benefit of filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that it only takes 90 days to finish. It’s one of the quickest debt relief options available. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as a “liquidation bankruptcy” because the Chapter 7 bankruptcy court appoints a “trustee” who can sell or “liquidate” your unprotected assets and use the sale proceeds to pay your creditors. The nice thing about Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that you know which assets are protected and which are not before you file. In most states, you can often keep your car, home, clothing, jewelry, household items, and 100% of retirement accounts. The property you get to keep after filing for bankruptcy depends on your state’s “exemptions”. Each state has an exemption law that delineates the type and amount of property a debtor can keep away from his creditors. All states allow you to keep 100% of your retirement accounts. Your rights to receive certain benefits, such as social security, unemployment compensation, veteran's benefits, public assistance, and pensions are completely exempt regardless of the amount received. No one can take away those future benefits if you file bankruptcy. Bankruptcy protects cars and homes depending on the amount of equity held in the property. What happens if you are above the exemption amounts or you have unprotected assets? In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the trustee has the right to sell the property and disburse the proceeds to your creditors. Some trustees allow the debtors to buy back the items from the trustee. Another option is to sell unprotected assets before you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Many Internet postings advise against selling any property before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy as it may be seen as keeping an asset out of the hands of a trustee. However, anyone can sell property before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy so long as the asset is sold at fair market value. If you do sell an asset prior to filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and assuming it was at fair market value, the next question you have to answer is, “what did you do with the money?” This is where people get into trouble. Some people will sell the car at fair market value and then give the money to their father to repay a loan from him. That is a preference payment the trustee can recover. Your father would have to return the money to the trustee. Instead, invest the proceeds in a retirement account, pay your taxes, or spend it on personal needs. Some people fear Chapter 7 because they worry the trustee will sell their home and other assets even though it rarely happens. The latest statistic from the U.S. Trustee Program with the Department of Justice, which is the federal agency that oversees bankruptcy cases and trustees, is that only 5% of Chapter 7 cases have any assets that can be sold. This means 95% of the people who file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy do not lose anything. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a powerful way to get out of debt, and with all powerful tools, there are some restrictions. In October 2005, the bankruptcy reform laws were revised with a new requirement: a “means test.” This test evaluates your income to determine if you are eligible to have your debts dismissed completely under Chapter 7 or whether you need to enter into a debt restructuring plan under Chapter 13. You may qualify to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy if your income falls below the median income in your resident state based on your family size. For example, in Colorado, if you are a single person who makes less than $50,000 per year, then you can file for Chapter 7. If you earn more than the median income, you may still qualify for Chapter 7 provided you are unable to set aside at least 25% of your income to repay your creditors. If you don’t qualify for Chapter 7, it doesn’t mean you cannot file bankruptcy as there are two other bankruptcies available.

State officials and representatives of Governor Mark Dayton's administration called upon members of the Senate Committee on State Government Finance to raise the level proposed by Senate Republicans for funding state agencies in the coming biennium . State Auditor Rebecca Otto, Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner Myron Frans, Administration Commissioner Matt Massman and Revenue Commissioner Cynthia Bauerly appeared before the committee Tuesday, March 21, to urge changes to SF 605, the omnibus state government finance bill authored by committee chair Senator Mary Kiffmeyer, R-Big Lake. According to Senate fiscal numbers, the Senate proposal is about $143.5 million dollars below Governor Dayton's recommendations. MMB Commissioner Myron Frans said the Senate's level of funding would reduce state agency budgets by 5 to 7.5 percent. "Governor Dayton has made it clear that he will not accept arbitrary, across-the-board reductions in agency spending," he said. Last week, Senate Republicans released their budget targets, which showed a $30 million dollar reduction in state agency spending as compared to the base level of funding for FY 2018-2019. The state agency reduction is identified as part of the Senate Republican goal of offering $900 million dollars in tax relief while spending about $741.5 million dollars of the $1.65 billion dollar budget surplus for other areas of the state budget, including transportation. The bill was referred to Finance on a 6-4 party-line vote.

Considered one if the most influential legal thinkers of modern times, Richard Epstein brings his libertarian views to bear on the current financial crisis --government incentives were perverse, so the actions of the private parties were perverse-- and rates the performances of George Bush and Barack Obama in their responses to the crisis. He speaks to the importance of contracts and the constitutionality of the expo facto taxation on AIG executives and the Employee Free Choice Act embraced by President Obama. Finally he speaks of his personal and professional dealings with Barack Obama when they were law school faculty mates at the University of Chicago.

I interview financial analyst Lynette Zang on Friday @1:00pm regarding Crypto Currency and the Future of the financial system. Her youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/itmtrading Short bio: Lynette came to ITM Trading in 2002, when gold was severely undervalued and the US dollar was on its last strongest peak. She built a database to track client holdings and execute the same strategy she established for herself, based on repeatable patterns. She then built the database to track all general asset classes and identify the long term trend and where we are in the trend cycle. Her goal is to help clients survive and thrive through this global currency life cycle issue based upon consistent patterns during this type of trend. She believes that to do this, one needs to be in the right place with the right asset at the right time and in order to do that, one needs to identify the fundamental value, the long term trend and where we are in the trend cycle. Her mission is to share these tools with any who want them, teach them how to see the underlying truth of the markets and enable them to make educated, independent choices for their best interest.

Young entrepreneurs in the Netherlands do not see aging as a problem, but as a business opportunity to sell to wealthy seniors goods and services. Where aging in the Netherlands is seen by most people as a major problem, driven young pioneering entrepreneurs see opportunities in the ever-growing target group of seniors. The contemporary 'elderly' do not want to be put away as worn out and discarded. They are vital, lively and above all ... wealthy. But they do not just spend their money, they are the chicken on top of the golden eggs. In the coming years, millions of baby boomers (born 1946-1955) worldwide reach an age that used to mean 'retirement' and 'behind the geraniums'. Often they are done paying their house, their children are adults and they have nice savings / investor on hand. And they are still fully in the good life. These demonstrable facts make the senior citizens' market surprisingly the ultimate innovation spot. In the senior economy, the purchasing power and capital are still largely available - in stark contrast with other sectors of the national economy. But while 80% of Dutch capital is among the people over 50, currently only 10% of marketing and advertising is aimed at that target group. It is high time to do something about this mismatch. How? This is demonstrated by the young VPRO Backlight director Camiel Zwart by following four young entrepreneurs aged under or around 30, who specifically focus on the 'new elderly' target: Arjan in 't Veld from BureauFifty translates the latest insights of that target group into concepts, campaigns and communication strategies. The young architects from Mannen in de Ruimte and career advisor Anne-Marije Buckens from 50 Company serve the gray tigers on their wishes regarding living and working. And the multinationals are also slowly waking up: Marie-Cecile Schouwenaar won a challenge for Heineken's new 60+ beer and at Ford's automotive manufacturer in Aachen, young technicians in 'third age suits' are designing new cars that will be equipped with heart rhythm meters already in the driver's seat . Because new cars are also bought for 75% by the 'forever young' 50+ people. Enough with the polarization between generations; it's time to move on to the win-win between the modern twenties / thirties and the free-spirited sixties / seventies!

Expert speakers from business, academia and policy will discuss the opportunities as well as challenges of doing business in Africa, including: ● Which countries are reforming and growing fastest? ● Which sectors are the most promising (now and in the future)? ● What opportunities have drawn U.S. businesses to Africa? ● What challenges do they face, and how have they overcome these challenges?
