Tax Plan Agreement Reached by Republicans

Republicans have reached a deal on the tax plan. They plan on sending it to President Donald Trump next week. This is according to inside sources.

Republicans have been hashing out the details of the tax plan for months. Various disagreements have come up. It has taken a lot of time to come up with a plan that is agreeable to all parties. However, it seems like that point has now been reached.

There were plenty of negotiations over the past few weeks, because various details of the tax plan were opposed by certain members of Congress. However, Republicans are now starting to put the tax plan in legislative text. Of course, there is still the possibility of further disagreements.

The Republican tax plan will reform the tax code and will have a sweeping economic effect. The tax plan keeps the 7 income brackets, but changes them slightly and reduces the tax rates for those brackets. It also greatly reduces the corporate tax rates. However, it eliminates certain deductions. For example, it will eliminate deductions for state taxes, which will greatly affect people living in states with high taxes, such as New York and California.

It is expected that the tax plan will change the economy, perhaps for the better. Businesses, with the reduced corporate tax rate, will certainly benefit. This will hopefully improve the economy overall.

Capitalism and White Working Class Americans

Is capitalism, as an economic policy, something that benefits everyone? New research done by a Nobel Peace Prize winner shows that it has some disadvantages.

In Angus Deaton’s research, he found that mortality rates were rising for working class Americans ever since 1999. This is only in regards to white working class Americans.

Deaton attributes this to a change of life and lower wages for many Americans. In a way, it can be compared to how Native Americans experienced a change of lifestyle when the settlers came and started settling in America. This current change of life can be attributed to many things. Globalization and technology are just two of them.

Angus pointed out that there are ways we can improve this. For example, our healthcare system can be improved. The healthcare system wastes a lot of money. If we took this money and put in back into workers’ wages, then workers would be healthier emotionally and would be in better shape.

Angus also pointed out that many people become rich at the expense of others. Angus has no problem with people making smart inventions and becoming successful. The problem lies with people who lobby Congress to make deals that would benefit them at the expense of the working class.

There are still some unanswered questions. Median wages have dropped in Britain, but they have not experienced the same rise in mortality rates.

Bitcoin Bubble Officially the Largest in Human History

Its supporters are loath to hear the word, but an increasing number of economic analysts are tracking what is known as the Bitcoin Bubble. The idea went viral last month when Convoy Investments formulated a chart tracking the relative worth of various economic bubbles in human history, stretching back hundreds of years, and marked out the largest and, frequently, most destructive. One month later and Bitcoin’s value has continued to increase, and Convoy has released an updated chart depicting the relative positions again.

Bitcoin is now worth 64 times what it was three years ago, officially passing “Tulip Mania” of the 17th century. Howard Wang and Robert Wu, who are the principals of Convoy, highlighted that Bitcoin has near doubled since the chart made last month. Strikingly, it has grown at five times the rate of the infamous South Seas bubble of the 18th century, a crash so enormous the government of the United Kingdom still pays debt on the catastrophe.

There are other words of warning, things like Bitcoin Futures and Derivatives have popped up recently, warning signs for most long-term investors.

There is some wiggleroom. Mike Novogratz, an expert pioneer in crypto-currencies, has stated he believes Bitcoin to easily reach $40,000 before it finally bursts. That’s still a fair amount to grow from its current position just under $20,000, and enough time for the squeamish to save their skins. All that remains hidden is how far the crash will fall.

Republicans Want to Add Work Requirements for Federal Benefits

It is possible that Senate Republicans and the Trump Administration will start pushing for new economic policies that encourage poor people to work. Many poor people receive various benefits from the government, regardless of whether they work or not. However, Trump has previously complained about people who do not work and generate more income through welfare than people who do work and generate income through their paycheck.

Senator Orrin Hatch also said that he is unwilling to help people who do not help themselves.

The Republicans tried to get states to add work requirements to Medicaid. Trump is also encouraging states to add work requirements for benefits such as food stamps. Other government officials have said that getting people to be self sufficient is the ultimate way to helping them.

However, as CNN reports, many people on welfare can not work. Some are children. Some are senior citizens who are too old to work. Others are disabled and can not work.

Of those who are of working age, forty percent do work or are students. Experts have weighed in and said that most people on welfare either can not work or do work and still do not earn enough to live on. The reason for this often lies with the low minimum wage. It is rare for people to actually sit around and not work and still get welfare just because they can.

How Trading Schools Can Be Successful

If you want to be a successful Trader, and you do not have any experience yet, then you have a problem. The problem is that there are not that many schools that you can go to to become a successful trader. There are no programs and schools like there are for athletes that you can attend. As a result, many traders end up failing. However, there are a few financial schools that teach trading. For such a school to be successful, it needs to have the following components.

First, there needs to be a structured curriculum. To see how this is necessary, take a look at how medical schools are structured. First, students learn about the science of the medicine. They then attend advanced programs that help them develop hands-on skills through observation and assistance. Trading schools should have various stages of development.

Another component can be taken from athletics. For athletes to be successful, they need to have a coach. Having a mentor and a personal trainer can help traders be successful.

Traders also need to be familiar with trading terms. For beginners, trading terms can be complex and confusing. A trading school should teach beginner traders all the various terms. Medical schools need to do the same thing with medical jargon.

Trading schools might want to consider only including qualified students who possess the skills to be successful. Alternatively, they can create separate programs for high-level students.

SEC Releases Statement On Cryptocurrency Risks

Jay Clayton, the Chairman of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, said in a statement that investors need to be wary of Bitcoin investing. Bitcoin and Initial Coin Offerings have become extremely popular in the past few months. There are stories of people becoming extremely wealthy in just a matter of days or weeks. However, people have to ask themselves some questions before they get involved in Bitcoin.

First of all, you need to know if the product is legal. You also need to know if the trading platform is legal, meaning if it is regulated. You also want to know if the trading platform is secure or if it can be manipulated. You also want to make sure that the platform cannot be hacked and that your information or money cannot be stolen.

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission is making it clear that there are no Initial Coin Offerings that have been registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. If you are a Main Street investor, you need to be aware of the fact that there is a bigger risk when it comes to bitcoin investing.

If you are a market professional, such as a professional investor, then ICOs can presents benefits. You can gain funding for a venture. However, you need to be aware that the ICO needs to have the proper disclosures and forms in place. Regulators have been taking a closer look at Bitcoin lately.

Coinbase Experiences Outages, Suspends Ethereum and Litecoin Trading Temporarily

Coinbase is one of the leading platforms for trading Bitcoin. It also lets users trade Ethereum and Litecoin. On Tuesday, they announced that trading for Ethereum and Litecoin was temporarily disabled. This happened in the morning, Eastern time. A few hours later, the issue was resolved, but not for long. A short time after 2 p.m., Coinbase again announced that trading for Ethereum was disabled. This time, it only took 45 minutes until the issue was resolved.

Coinbase said in a statement that their site was experiencing a record amount of traffic. This was the cause of the outages, and there may be additional outages in the future.

Bitcoin and Ethereum have been rising at tremendous rates. Bitcoin rose 5% to a record high of over $17,000. Ethereum rose 23 percent to a record high of well over $600. That is 7,500 percent higher than the price that it started at.

Cryptocurrencies, in general, have been experiencing new interest over the last few months. Coinbase is one of the easiest platforms to get started with trading Bitcoin. Many users have started to join Coinbase. Coinbase has a complex job of securing vast amounts of digital currencies. They add dozens of thousands of users each day. Scaling such a business on such levels is tough. However, experts are saying that they have been making the right moves until now.

Bitcoin May Rise to $40 Thousand

Michael Novogratz, one of the most well-known Wall Street investors, said that he would sell Litecoin after it surges. Litecoin has seen some significant gains. It soared over 70%. It is the fourth largest cryptocurrency behind Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Bitcoin cash.

However, Michael Novogratz said that he does not see Litecoin reaching the same gains as Bitcoin. He said that once Litecoin surges, he would sell it. Bitcoin is the future of cryptocurrencies, at least for now, according to Michael Novogratz. In fact, Michael predicts that Bitcoin can easily rise to $0,000 in the next two to three months.

The chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission said that there are many dangers in Bitcoin investing. Because of Bitcoin’s high prices, regulators are starting to look into it. However, many exchange platforms are starting to add Bitcoin to their platforms.

Novogratz said that institutional investors are not yet investing in Bitcoin. However, once they start doing so, and they are indeed looking into it as a potential asset, Bitcoin will start going up. For example, if Goldman Sachs starts investing in Bitcoin, it will jump to all-time highs. This is not happening yet, and although Goldman Sachs said that they are clearing some Bitcoin trading for their clients, very little to nothing is actually going on.

Besides Litecoin, there are other altcoins, or alternative cryptocurrencies, that are rising. Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash, are all becoming increasingly popular.
