Europe’s Big Year Ahead

Capture a a a a a a a a a';knsdl'kna'asdlkj

While it’s easy to think America doesn’t need other nations across the pond to keep our economy afloat, that’s a false assumption. It’s important that other country’s economies do well too so as to prop up our own. That’s why it’s important to periodically check on the economic state of Europe. Since the start of the year, things are mostly unchanged, but as Britain’s position becomes clearer and Trump settles into his new office, those in power are contemplating their moves more carefully. In the case of European currency, things are weird, with a chance to get stranger yet. Let’s ...Continue reading

Why Trump “Volatility” Hasn’t Hurt Markets

Capture a a a a a a a[pak'p

If there is one merit where mainstream media has earned praise, it is in their tenacity. Despite the obvious blows to their credibility, they continue to fight a public opinion war against the government and the American people. In their onslaught, they continue to attempt to paint Trump and his administration as inept, volatile and dangerous. If even a tenth of their claims were true, America would be in dire straits. Still, the relentlessness of their approach makes easy for anyone to fall prey to their tactics now and then. In that spirit, we’ll review the strongest claims and compare ...Continue reading

The Anti-Trump Group Secretly Pulling for the President

Capture a a a a a a a aasdfjasdf'pjasdfk'pjop

In ancient Greek mythology, the hero Sisyphus was punished by the gods for his great greed, forced to roll a boulder up a hill for eternity only to see it fall down the side of the mountain each time he reached the top. The American media could take a lesson from this lesson of antiquity: building one's own reputation can lead to much greater problems than is worth. On the surface, the fierce struggle between the old guards of journalism and President Trump's sweeping condemnation of "fake news" should lead to the extinction of a dying enterprise. In practice, however, ...Continue reading

The State of the Housing Market

Home For Sale Real Estate Sign in Front of New House.

In 2016, there were plenty of social media battles. The #howtoconfuseamillennial was one of the more entertaining, but it hit a few important points along the way. Mostly, the millennials continued to push their narrative that the housing market and general economy have been forever ruined by previous generations. As is common, this shows just how much the younger generation still needs to learn about economics. In terms of housing, things are more promising and interesting than such a simplistic outlook can comprehend. Today’s Numbers There are a few metrics that are in stark contrast to their gloomy narrative. Home ...Continue reading

How Obamacare Repeal Will Affect Your Finances

Male patient tells the doctor about his health complaints

The process to repeal Obamacare was started before Trump even took office. In his first order he added his executive weight to the issue, so we can expect it to be a primary point of discussion in Congress. So far the GOP has put forward an incomplete replacement plan. If nothing else, it outlines the GOP’s primary goals in health reform, and we can use it to extrapolate a few realistic expectations. The Current Replacement Plan Congress still has a way to go before truly repealing or replacing Obamacare. If you follow the Wealth Authority regularly, then you’ve seen a ...Continue reading
