“Where is the market going?”


econ 101

For the next two months you are going to see me writing about the economics of the country. We are coming up on the busiest shopping time of the year. And this is where America makes so much of its money. But we are also looking over the entire year to see how the country has done thus far. It gives us time to reflect and also forecast for the upcoming year of 2020. So hopefully we are able to come to an understanding of the year to come after these next two months. So sit back and enjoy. Read, like, follow, and share with the world.

ECONOMIC STEROID: DO WE NEED A STIMULUS AT THE MOMENT?

airport, bank, board

“We need a push from the presidency.”


economic growth

Presidents throughout history have always looked to means of promoting a good economy. And one of those ways have been through an economic stimulus to the economy. People who tax payers receiving a check in the mail as a means to put it right back into businesses. George W. Bush did this which pumped a lot of money back into the economy. So now, should this be something that President Trump consider as one of his agendas as president?

where does it go?

When the stimulus is spent by tax payers, you would think the money goes into paying bills and personal needs. But the stimulus goes towards clothing, entertainment, and restaurants. Isn’t that something, the country receives money from the government, and this is where it goes. Now don’t get me wrong, a lot of people utilize the funds for payments of bills. But so many use the funds for indulging on themselves. Yet, when people say they need money or what they would do if they had money, it’s a far cry from when they actually get that check in hand.

can we afford it?

So, now the question remains, “Is America able to afford the stimulus?” Because it’s easy to say to stimulate the economy, but will the federal government sign off on the stimulus? There is a lot this administration is trying to accomplish that is already going to be a financial strain. So the idea of a stimulus is far fetched right now. That is unless, one of the plans Trump has takes a back seat momentarily.

SELF SUSTAINING: HOW WORKING FOR SELF BOOST THE ECONOMY

business, computer, connection

“Self made, self paid.”


work for self

Working for self used to be seen as such an extreme risk. Now in the recent years, the idea of working for yourself has jumped. Being an entrepreneur is now all the rave. And with the fact that it could add even more jobs to the economy, that is a reason to be behind self employment. The only downside is that most businesses fail because people are not too savvy on keeping a business open. For whatever reason, they get ahead of themselves and start to fall apart.

traditional vs. modern

IN today’s society , you don’t even have to leave your house to work for yourself. You can now open a business from the comforts of your house and build right where you reside. But there is still room for the brick and mortar businesses that we have come to love over time. Now before I said a lot of businesses fail initially. But the ones that last, prove to be quite profitable for our society. Some even go on to be major companies that first started out as small family owned businesses (Walmart, McDonald’s)

why work for self

People are constantly stating how they are looking for work. Or that they are tired of working for their current employer and need something else. So they try at working for themselves and sometimes it works and other times it does not work. But what you must understand is that everyone is not meant to be a boss. Everyone can not delegate nor can everyone get up day in and day out and work for years on end. People are infatuated with the word self-employed. But then, when you are in the paradigm of working the task becomes a lot harder. Yet, if you are able to work around the hardships and make it out successful, you’ll prove to be an asset not only to you, but the country.

MASS MEDIA HYSTERIA: HOW CONSTRUCTED STORIES EFFECT A NATION’S GROWTH

Man Reading a Newspaper

“If it’s news, must be important.”


generation information

Remember when breaking news used to be breaking? Now, it seems like anything is breaking news on the television screen. It was done in the past to signify a tragic event, not the news uses it for bringing more eyes on their particular story or agenda. And the problem is that we are now becoming desensitized to the word breaking. But how is this all effecting our economy in America? Is there something to the nation’s economy and the way the news presents the information in various mediums?

stocks go up and then they go down

I’m not someone who is well traversed in the stock market. But whenever the mass media talks about the market, you start to see a shift in confidence. It’s because the average Joe really doesn’t know much about the market. So when they hear commentators discussing the market, it makes them either nervous or optimistic. Because these the trusted people who have worked in the space of finance. So when the commentator starts to question the market, then you will notice, if this person is trusted, a slight show of loyalty to what they are saying. But the commentators don’t have anywhere as much influence as the market numbers in the newspapers or websites.

ratings can’t be the driver

Whenever you see the media, there is always a left or right agenda. Yet when you are presenting the market numbers, having a left or right agenda can hurt directly even more. Because playing with the market’s numbers can effect how people invest, and in turn the jobs in our market. So when presenting information about the market, show the numbers as a reflection of what is because a lot of people have investments riding on those numbers. Views on political parties and social issues are more ambiguous than the numbers that coincide with the market.

DIGITAL DOLLARS: WHO WILL LAST OVER THE LONG HAUL

apps, blur, button

Whose going to sink or swim?”


bubble or not

In an age where so much is dominated by the market, what will be the company or companies that last? But also, what will be the companies that don’t last? Always remember that nothing last forever. And it all comes to an end at some point in time. So who will be the first to bite the dust? Because something will happen a major company; maybe not this year or next year, but it will.

devastation

There was social communication prior to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snap Chat, there will be after. But can you imagine the downsides of a known tech firm. But the word tech and social media are not just the platforms we known. Yet still, you can’t but feel for the the employees who are forced to find new jobs because of the collapse.Then again, I don’t see happening anytime soon.

acquisitions

Companies in today’s society are known to be bought out so they are not having an worry of dissolving to company. Which is yet another reason a lot of companies don’t break down that easily. Companies that do dissolve are generally companies that are much smaller. The ones that are still popular enough to survive are bought by bigger more popular companies. But knowing when to pull out your investment in one of these companies is important so you don’t lose money.

TWO TERM TRUMP: COULD A DOUBLE WIN EFFECT THE ECONOMY

Silhouette of People Beside Usa Flag

“A successful 2020 run.”


two times the charm

Sitting here and observing the landscape of the United States socially and politically, you can’t help but to acknowledge the idea of Trump winning twice. What could happen if anything from a second win? I know that a strong amount of the young demographic is now pushing back against the president. But is it really enough to stop a second run and ultimate victory?

debates

There was yet another school shooting in Texas, and more gun debate. There are issues surrounding law enforcement and racial intolerance. All of which could negatively effect an economy. So what are people to do if there is a sharp downturn from nothing being created in society. We are creating separation among people, but no real economic growth. But is it all what it’s cracked up to be.

truth in lies

Is there anything to the idea that mass media is pushing a lot of the stories that are creating a crazy climate? And if so, is there something to gain financially from this climate of fighting. Is our economy really performing and this fighting is nothing more than just hype to scare people? What if the country is really on an upswing? Is this attributed to the Trump administration and what is being reported on the news does not tell the full story?

hard truth

In reality, it may be very difficult to win another election for Trump. Nearly half the country didn’t vote the first time and Hilary Clinton still almost won. Now there is a lot of those nearly half who wish they had voted in favor of Democrat. What could that mean for the Republican Party if people do show out? And if people show up and he wins twice, will the wave of social and political issues continue to be the face of the nation and overshadow the economic growth.

BAD THINGS MAKE MONEY TOO: HOW AMERICA’S DARK SIDE CONTRIBUTE TO THE ECONOMY

Image result for BAD THINGS

“When bad is good.”


america’s underworld

The United States tagline is the land of the free and the home of the brave. We push this tagline, but what happens when the other side of America pops its ugly head up. Or better yet, what happens when an ugliness in America is actually of profit to the economy. And what do I mean by profit to the system. I’m talking the prison system and the criminal underworld. Just as the negatives that come with the crime there are the positives as well.

narco

The narcotics business has been a longstanding issue in the United States going back to the 1970’s. But as with the carnage it brings, there is the monetary gain that a city takes in from the business. The first aspect is the money being spent in an environment by criminals. When the city of Miami was going through its problems back in the 1980’s, the money being generated was staggering. Billions of dollars were made through the narcotics business.

But you also have the funding from the government to battle the drug problem. So, now you have police officers, prosecutors, and judges who are needed for cases. Which an insurmountable amount of jobs. You even have the money taken from drug bust used to upgrade police equipment. Even the drugs are stored and used to lower others for potential drug deals.

trigger happy

People who are engaging in gun running or using guns stolen are the reason for two things. The intervention of the ATF, as well as citizens part taking in gun ownership is now a reason to invest in the firearms market. Especially with the rising fear of terrorism, the gun sales also increase.

iron bars

A major aspect of profiting off of the crime would be the prison systems. This country is going to make money off of you one way or another. And if you are going to be a stand-up citizen then there is a orison for you to go and live. And you’re not going to be just sitting around reading magazines and watching television. You’re going to be working the jobs that have left he job market and made its way to America’s penitentiaries. And the next you talk to a telemarketer, don’t be shocked if they are actually a corrections inmate.

Prison has become this assembly line of people coming in and going out. Cost the country money to try cases, so now it becomes a cookie cutter get them and get them out. Give this guy 10 years, this guy 3 years, this guy 6 months, and this guy 50 years. We have our chart with time associated with crimes, put the time to the charge and see you later.
