Trump’s Big Save

capture-ac-wdadpcji

President-Elect Donald Trump has not even taken office yet but has already added one major achievement to his slate of feats: saving more than 1,000 jobs at the air conditioner manufacturer Carrier in Indiana. Carrier, the company that invented air conditioning, had announced major plans to move much of its manufacturing to Mexico due to high American labor costs and an unfavorable competitive landscape. Without intervention, Carrier would have been just one more U.S. industrial manufacturer to take advantage of pacts like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to reduce labor costs by producing their products outside U.S. borders. ...Continue reading

Despite that, plenty of his larger platforms will still heavily impact technology. So, taking those into account, this is what you can expect from the major players. Apple Apple is always in the spotlight in any technology discussion, and there is no reason for that to ...Continue reading

While the close nature of the election caused futures to tumble for a few hours on Election Day, by the time trading opened on November 9th, the major components of the stock market were at record highs with near-record growth rates. Now, real financial experts who weren’t looking to get a paycheck from mainstream media were far from surprised by this, and in fact, more than a few predicted that a Trump election would ...Continue reading

The Future of U.S.-Cuban Relations

capture-a-aa0fisdaio0joj

On November 25, at the age of 90, Communist Cuba's former President Fidel Castro passed away after a long battle with cancer. Castro, who seized power in Cuba from its former leader Fulgencio Batista in 1959, ruled the Caribbean island with an iron fist until 2008 when he delegated control of the country to his brother Raul and retired from politics. As one of the longest-reigning authoritarian leaders in modern history, Castro will be remembered for many things — for establishing a beachhead for Communism in the West only 90 miles from U.S. shores, for creating a nationalized health care ...Continue reading
