Brazil passes half a million COVID-19 deaths, experts warn of worse ahead Jun 20, 2021 5:40PM ET
I read Edward's thoughts. Take note of one salient point. World mortality when studied decades from now will show that deaths were statistically uneventful pandemic or not. As life happens babies are born mortality will happen. As populations age people pass away. Not to diminish a variant of the flu because my wife's father has Covid and was relatively healthy. In the end his body couldn't fight the respiratory issues. If the flu variant of covid hadn't happened odds would suggest the other flu types or pneumonia would have been the catalyst of his death.
Oil hits two-year high on OPEC+ discipline, demand hopes Jun 04, 2021 12:14AM ET
These stories have reached the point of beyond getting old. First woohoo optimism. Then oh my God doom and gloom. Then vaccinations are up. Then oh my not enough are getting vaccinated. if I could roll my eyes any harder i think they'd get stuck.
UK's Labour pushes for vote on U.S. minimum corporation tax plan May 23, 2021 7:04PM ET
Sigh. Why does the fact that corporations are in the business to turn a profit. More taxes equals less return which will result in lower growth, lower capital investments and less shareholder return. As a result corporations raise prices. Prices which are ALWAYS paid for the PEOPLE. Geesh. All forms of taxes whether individual or corporate are ALWAYS paid for by the people. Even those in poverty. What a viscous circle. Sigh.
Biden to float historic tax increase on investment gains for the rich Apr 22, 2021 10:57PM ET
Don't they get it. Raising corporate tax rates mean less income. Less income means lower returns on invested capital. Corporations then have to raise prices or cut costs to effectively increase returns. And who pays for those decisions? Average people. It's so frustrating. No matter the path it always heads back to consumers or tax payers. Effectively both being one and the same. Sigh.............
Biden says no evidence higher corporate taxes will drive companies abroad Apr 05, 2021 7:39PM ET
Seriously. An increase in corporate taxes is ultimately passed on through price increases. In the end consumers are tax payers and tax payers are consumers. It's amazing in the end it all comes from.....us.
Germany set to extend COVID-19 lockdown, draft proposal says Mar 21, 2021 9:28PM ET
It's blunt. I know. A daily 99 death toll. 83 million people. Life has to continue. For us all.
Wall Street Week Ahead: Energy shares look for next spark as investors eye recovering economy Mar 13, 2021 6:37PM ET
So frustrating. Their will always be something. "....where a more contagious variant of the coronavirus has pushed Italy and France to impose fresh lockdowns." At some point people governments will need to let the world return to people being people. Lockdown after lockdown hoping science will stay ahead by supplying vaccines is impossible. I know it's not popular but as a species we just can't lock ourselves away for months which turn to a year which can become years on every single new flu variant.
Everyone’s Talking Bubbles. Is It Time To Act? Mar 03, 2021 9:28PM ET
One of the more entertaining movies I enjoy is Inception. While I'm worried about the volatility of the markets it's the moment of when are pervasive stories of bubbles and crashes going to create the catalyst or inception moment when fear takes over. It gives me moments of uncertainty until I keep telling myself just work the plan.
Column: What you need to know about Medicare’s solvency problem, and how to fix it Feb 18, 2021 6:37AM ET
Am I interpreting this right? "a 1 percentage-point hike over ten years" That would be 10% more in taxes going to 12.9%? WOW
UK hits 15 million vaccinations as pressure builds to ease lockdown Feb 14, 2021 8:35AM ET
At some point normalcy has to replace fear and politics.

U.S. Republicans grapple with internal divisions as Trump trial looms Jan 31, 2021 3:39PM ET
So many issues. Not least of which is 27.9 trillion in national debt and 159 trillion in UNFUNDED LIABILITIES. That'd $480,492 per citizen. Yep. More important things.
Global stocks rise on recovery hopes Jan 24, 2021 8:49PM ET
Time. Mass production of anything is never without its challenges. Each day brings us closer to getting efficiencies in production and distribution. If any rational person thought the mass vaccination of billions would be flawless....is well....you know.... :-)
Prominent Senate Republican warns Trump trial could spark more impeachments Jan 23, 2021 9:08PM ET
In the end dollars spent by businesses will either be pasted through as price increases to consumers or reduction in work force. What's interesting is that an increase to an expense reduces taxable income at theoretically a higher tax rate reducing money to the government while those getting the income will pay less in taxes. Amazing how in the end how debits and credits work.
U.S. House will take second vote on stimulus checks if first one fails -Pelosi Dec 28, 2020 8:29PM ET
National Debt $27,542,968,765,000US Unfunded Liability per citizen is $472,686That's over 156 trillion in unfunded liabilities ultimately owed by each citizen.Worries me that at some point the numbers just don't make sense anymore.
