Perhaps the most common indictment of America’s legendary prosperity is wage stagnation.
But do these numbers remotely describe the life you have lived over the past 45 years or square in any way with numerous official measures of changes in what Americans actually own and consume?

As we draw closer to the primaries, more and more talk from the left will be focused on the “failure of Trump’s tariffs”.
Of course, nothing could be further from the reality of the true business world in international trading!

I give Donna Brazile just a few points for finally fessing up (after lying and denying) that she stole and supplied CNN debate questions to Hillary Clinton, helping the establishment candidate triumph over insurgent Bernie Sanders.

As our nation languishes in the throes of Russia, Russia, Russia… we are no closer to a fair and honest presidential election in 2020.

The stock market is likely to struggle between now and the Nov. 6 midterm elections.
And it isn’t because stocks favor one party or the other.
It’s because investors hate uncertainty, and these elections create a healthy dose of just that.

Why are the midterms so significant?
The professors point to an economic-policy created by three finance professors…but seriously, folks…. one does not normally play golf in a thunderstorm!
But what about another piece of traditional wisdom: “Sell in May and go away,” also known as the “Halloween indicator”?
