Philip Diehl’s Opinion On Matters Related To The Elimination Of The Penny And How The US Money Reserve Is Fairing

Friday, January 29th, 2016

According to Philip Diehl, the elimination of the US penny from circulation is the right step and its expense outweighs its use. Speaking recently at CNBC’s Squawk Box, Philip said that nowadays, people no longer use the penny, and if anyone bends on the streets to pick it up, they are most probably getting paid below minimum wage. Even though different economists hold a very firm belief that taking the penny out of circulation will harm the economy by increasing inflation and distorting prices, he thinks that they are recycling the same argument that has been in use for not less than 25 years.

As reported by PR NewsWire, Philip pointed out that we are living in an era where most of the shopping is done electronically, therefore, very few if any transactions would get affected by the elimination. He also thinks that many businesses would resort to rounding off prices so as to avoid instances where they would be required to give the penny as loose change. He also thinks that not all businesses would increase the prices because they would be forced by competition from peers to reduce.

Philip said that the penny is beyond hope when it comes to being redeemed because it will save Americans not less than $105 million annually. Many who have been opposing the elimination are industry players in the coin making industry who are contracted to make the zinc lobby and coin’s blanks.

The US Money Reserve belongs to the league of the nation’s biggest distributors of US government issued precious coins made from gold, silver and platinum. The company serves hundreds of thousands of clients and plays a very crucial role in helping them diversify their assets with physical precious metals.

The company has a professional operating team that is adequately prepared to conduct proper coin research as well as deal with the market at a manner that is professional so as to help identify products that have the highest profit returns.

The US Money Reserve is well respected when matters related to going above the normal industry standards and norms are concerned so as to ensure that it delivers the best results. It is based in Austin, Texas and it also very involved with community matters. Recently, it was involved in a campaign to help raise funds for the Austin Police Department’s Operation Blue Santa. It is also open every day of the week for either new or old clients who might need to get help with investing.

The Latest George Soros

Monday, January 25th, 2016

Overview

George Soros has made another prediction on the overall economy. According to this Bloomberg article, George Soros says that the market conditions right now are very similar to 2008. This is a cause for fear for many people simply because George Soros was right the last time he made this prediction. He was one of the only people at that time before the crash of 2008 to say that the economy was starting to contract. Here are several reasons why 2016 is really similar to 2008 and some ways it is different.

Stronger Jobs Market

Perhaps the biggest difference between 2016 and 2008 is the fact that the job market is much stronger now. During that time, there were tens of thousands of jobs being lost every week. However, today the unemployment rate is one of the lowest we have seen in quite some time. This is an essential aspect of looking at the overall economy. Anyone who is looking to make an impact on the economy needs to look at the jobs market in general. There are many people who have been able to improve their economic position by landing a better job. However, there are also many people who say the jobs being created are low paying jobs. It will be interesting to see if the relative strength in the jobs market continues over the next couple of years.

More National Debt

The national debt of nations around the world is higher than it was just a couple of years ago. Almost without exception, nations around the world continue to borrow money at exceedingly higher rates. Anyone who is looking for reasons to be worried about the future of the economy can look to this as a cause for concern. No matter what happens in the economy, one day this debt will have to be paid back. The nations who have an extremely high debt load relative to GDP will be hard pressed to see this growth continue.

The Prediction

George Soros has been known over the years to make predictions on Bloomberg about the economy. He has many decades of experience in looking at financial markets and being able to see through all of the variables that impact the economy. Over the long term, George Soros has proven that he has a solid track record of success when it comes to predicting economic events. Anyone who wants to follow his impact can see various examples in history. If you are someone who is worried about another major economic event, it is vital for you to understand where he is coming from. George Soros sees the current economic environment as one that is really similar to 2008. There were few people who were saying that a major economic event was coming in 2008 much like now. Although this is no reason to panic, there has been a lot of relative weakness in places like China. Only time will tell if George Soros is correct in his prediction.

The Slow but Significant Strides of Artificial Intelligence

Monday, January 25th, 2016

Artificial intelligence has always been an elusive concept for many decades. A story in the Deccan Herald looks at the growth of AI technology over the years. Different entities have tried various projects to tap into the potential of AI but failed. The best minds have conducted research of all kinds in the fields of Robotics, Neuromorphic Engineering, and Machined Learning. Experts in various industries waited for a significant moment in history when AI would burst into the scene and awe everyone, but that did not happen.

The Subtlety of AI Use

The impact that AI has had in the world today is subtle and hard to notice. Various AI-based applications made their way into the market slowly without pomp and flair. The Siri application from Apple, for instance, is one tool that uses artificial intelligence to recognize voices. There is also the automatic tagging of friends on Facebook and the predictive search features of Google. These are all ways that people have been using AI for their day to day activities.

AI and its Impact on Online shopping

One field that is enjoying the influence of artificial intelligence is e-commerce. The internet has become a tremendous market since the advent all over of Amazon. Once Amazon spread all over the globe, loads of retail stores were set up, and people had endless options. However, there was a need for online retailers to find ways to set their businesses apart. With everyone providing virtually the same services, staying ahead of the competition means being unique. Image-based learning and big data analytics are some of the tools that e-commerce sites use to provide different services.

A Look at Slyce

AI makes an appearance in the form of visual image search which is slowly taking root in e-commerce. An application like Slyce makes it possible for shoppers to find products that are similar to what they are looking for. Shopping for products online may be convenient but is not always easy. There are so many online stores and a plethora of products that picking just one becomes nearly impossible. Online sites provide certain applications that make it less complicated for online shoppers to discover products. The use of visual imaging has revolutionized searching on e-commerce sites.

Slyce is available for shoppers on both mobile and desktop. It enhances the experience of simplified online shopping. The visual search works by finding products that are similar to the images of items that shoppers like.

Kyle Bass Weighs in on 2016 Market

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

Kyle Bass recently joined the “Halftime Report” traders to share his outlook for the 2016 market and what he predicts will happen with the volatile market in China. While most investors think that the highest profits came before China’s slowdown, Bass things the real problem is simply the way China banks. He compares China’s problem with the recent crisis in Europe. In both scenarios, the systems outgrew GDP at a staggering speed. For example, China’s banking system is nearly $35 trillion, but the GDP is just $10 trillion. A credit cycle and losses are on the way, and he thinks investors are not worried enough. While he doesn’t think our markets will sink as low as during the global financial crisis, he does expect a 10%-20% downturn by the end of the year.

Wikipedia shows that Kyle Bass is the founder of Hayman Capital Management. He made his money by predicting the 2008 financial crisis. Initially, this made him a superstar in the financial world, but as time went on, it seems he may have lost his magic touch.

Bass has also made a some unsavory alliances recently, like his friendship with Argentinian despot Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. While Bass holds her and her financial knowledge in high regard, she is widely blamed for her country’s disastrous economy. When her country defaulted for the second time in thirteen years on their sovereign debt, Bass defended and rationalized her actions while the rest of the world viewed the actions as indefensible and irrational.

Kyle Bass is viewed as one of her lackeys, something UsefulStooges first pointed out, as he sings her praises as she continues to pump out irresponsible economic policies while ripping her own people off. He even slid in to defend her when a New York judge ruled that Argentina had to pay all its creditors, not just the ones that would agree on a reduced settlement. Bass of course took Kirchner’s side stating that those requiring full pay were immoral for holding poor countries hostage and holding up the progress of 42 million people.

Bass has used similar tactics to avoid paying his own debts. He went on television to shift blame for the deaths caused by non deploying airbags and faulty steering in GM cars to the actual victims, all so he could make good on his investment with General Motors. He’s also got business ties to the late Chris Kyle, whos widow is involved in a lawsuit with one of Bass’s subordinates at Hayman who she has accused of unethical behavior.

There are many more shady dealings that Bass has had his name tied to. So one might question his advice on the stock market, as well as his business practices, before they panic because he states the market isn’t going to be good.

Charity in the Aid of Autism through Autism Rocks

Monday, January 18th, 2016

There are various conditions that affect human beings but they are so rare to the point that not so many people know about them. Those people who know about them are mostly victims or people whose family members or relatives have been victims. It is for this reason that information about these rare conditions is not available in most health facilities or in the internet. One of those rare conditions is autism which a condition experienced from childhood which is characterized by difficulty in connecting with people through communication or through other activities. The main cause is a disorder in the development of the brains from the early age.
Being a rare condition, not so many people know about it and as a result resource centres have been set to help in the research of the condition so as to help those who have been affected by the condition. These resource centres conduct research on how to improve the lives of people living with autism since it is a permanent condition.
Other people have come up with charity organisations to help those suffering from the conditions through financial assistance. Example of those charitable organisations that have been formed to help people living with the condition with the condition is Autism Rocks which was founded by Sanjay Shah whose son is a victim of the condition. The organisation raises its money for the noble course through organising music gigs which people attend and the proceeds go towards helping in research on the condition.
Sanjay Shah is a British multimillionaire who moved to Dubai in 2009 and settled there. After his studies at King’s College University in UK, he worked for various firms before founding his own firm called Solo Capital which is an investment and brokerage firm in 2008. The firm grew to a point of hiring more than 100 financial experts.
His drive to support autism was when he was informed about his son having autism. As a way of helping the community, he funded various research centres before finally coming with the Autism Rocks which raises funds through hosting a number of international artists both in London and Dubai.

Dogs Are Now Eating like Their Owners

Friday, January 8th, 2016

More and more dog food companies are jumping on board with the eat-like-your-owner strategy. They are selling dog foods that are pretty close to what dog owners have on the table in their own home, including chicken, beef, and even lasagna. Freshpet Inc is one such company. Their factory is located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. They are the only industrial refrigerated pet food on the market. However, their company is among many others in this more than $23 billion a year industry. This new idea is really taking how people feed their pets to the next level. Even though companies have been mixing a wide variety of fish and meat with grains, things are definitely stepping up in the market. For example, Mars’ Cesar Home Delights has a line of dog food that sells beef stroganoff and lasagna. Colgate-Palmolive offers a line of dog food that is designed to help dogs lose weight. And Milo’s Kitchen sells grilled beef dog burgers and duck jerky treats. Purina Beneful offers a wide range of dog food products on Purina Store that include wet and dry food as well as treats. They use a sophisticated tracking system that insures all raw ingredients are safe from the time they are received in their factory until they are delivered to retail stores. Beneful provides nutritious and high quality dog food. In the year 2014, around 1 1/2 billion dogs were served Beneful meals. They use a variety of methods to test for propylene glycol, mycotoxins, arsenic and lead. More people are interested in offering their dogs healthier meals. They also like the eat like your owner strategy. Evidence of this is the fact that premium dog food sales have gone up more than 45 percent since the year 2009. Blue Buffalo has been selling canned dog food and dry dog food that includes lamb, chicken, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. They went public this summer. Experts expect their sales to exceed $1 billion this year. Another popular idea is paleo diets for dogs and cats. The idea is to feed the dog what their ancestors ate in the wild years ago. This is another industry that is gaining in popularity.
