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.

Brian Mulligan of Brooknol Advisers – Renaissance Man.

Brian Mulligan considers himself to be a fortunate man. He contributes his successes to a solid education, working smart, and professing strong leadership characteristics.
Over a 30-year career in the media/entertainment field, he has held such offices as Co-Chairman of Universal Pictures, CEO of Universal Television, Chairman of FOX Broadcasting and Senior Vice President of MCA, Inc.
Currently Mulligan is the CEO of Brooknol Advisers, a company and website that marries Mulligan’s extensive media background with his knowledge and interest in the dynamic world of professional sports business.
Its Field of Green blog-type format covers sports marketing, finance, law, media, technology and sports venues like stadiums and arenas. What CNBC television is to Wall Street and the financial world, Brooknol Advisers and the Field of Green website are to the business end of professional sports.
All professional sports are covered on The Fields of Green website including The Fan Index, a link that presents the latest in NASCAR racing news. A strong team of noted sports writers and columnists contribute sporting articles and essays. Mulligan himself writes occasionally about the latest in sports business and offers his opinions on legal and media sports matters. Fifteen direct links to sports business sites also provide the interested sports fans with the latest in sporting news.
It takes a special breed of executive, a renaissance type person, to be able to occupy the various seats of power that Brian Mulligan has held over his career. His higher education interests and background have certainly played a role in his lofty successes. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern California. Then he went across town and earned a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management at UCLA.
One of the more interesting articles Mulligan has written recently for Field of Green offered suggestions to young people interested in pursuing the business end of sports as a career. Putting low-paying apprenticeships aside, which are hard to come by anyway, Mulligan titled his article, “Volunteering is the best way into sports business.”
His thinking is that helping young people gain a resume and exposure to sports executives, agents, and the athletes themselves are keys in helping them build a sport-business career. Volunteering for even the most menial of jobs in both the sports and media world is often the best and fastest way to open the doors to that exposure.
