Export And Import Bank: The Bank You Cannot Count On


In Washington, people are having trouble coming to terms with the nation's numerous social and economic troubles. It is a bad idea for our government to leave our limited public resources to the hands of wealthy and politically well-connected corporations like the Export and Import Bank.

Those who are in favor of the current status argue that the bank benefits taxpayers because it protects jobs and promotes US exports. However, these are unsubstantiated arguments that will not stand up to further inquiry. As a matter of fact, less than 2 percent of US exports are supported by the bank yearly, and the usual beneficiaries are huge businesses like Caterpillar and Boeing.
Moreover, the bank's claim of supporting 205,000 jobs in 2013 was disputed by the Government Accounting Office, stating that the bank did not consider the number of jobs that would have been available if the bank had not been present among other arguments. In addition, the Congressional Budget Office reported that over the next decade, the bank is estimated to yield losses to taxpayers.

This resulted in his forming a partnership with Holiday Inn and building Trump Plaza. The deal that Trump negotiated allowed him to collect 50% of all profits without assuming any liability for casino losses throughout the casino's first five years.

Mining Stocks Are Currently Selling At Bargains

Cliffs Natural Resources Inc

We put much of our faith in the international monetary system, but we know the market can collapse at any time. In the 20th century, the system crashed three times in less than 60 years. James Richards, a well-respected expert in the financial world believes another financial collapse is on the way. He also believes in owning tangible assets because the value of money goes up and down. At the moment, gold is one of the most stable physical assets on the market. Even though this precious metal is solid, stock prices for gold mining companies are lower than usual. These undervalued share prices are exciting many investors, and they are taking advantage of this opportunity by purchasing gold mining stocks and ETF's. When a person invests in a mining company, as opposed to purchasing the actual metal, they are doing so to gain from the intrinsic value. An example of an undervalued stock with excellent growth potential is Cliffs Natural Resources Inc (NYSE:CLF).

Yandex NV (YNDX) Produced Major Gains While Google Inc. Fell Back Noticeably

Sep 16 2015


Owners of Yandex NV (NASDAQ:YNDX) benefited from a push upwards yesterday with a 7.25% increase in the stock price following an announcement that Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service determined Google Inc. (GOOG) was guilty of taking unfair advantage of its dominant position in the search space.

Yandex NV (NASDAQ:YNDX), a leader in the search engine space for consumers in Russia, took offense to how Google Inc. (GOOG) essentially used a domineering posture by requiring Russian Android phones to have the Google search engine pre-installed. They were also found to give special treatment for where a number of Google mobile apps are located within their mobile operating system. Similarly, it was only in 2014 that a number of device manufacturers found they were unable to install Yandex apps on Android devices pre-installed in the same way that Google does today. The interesting distinction is that whilst Yandex controls 60% of search traffic within Russia currently, smartphone users see a different picture with Google controlling 86% of the Russian search market.
