    What is water trading? The market allows farmers, hedge funds, and municipalities to hedge bets on the future price of water and water availability in the American West. The new trading scheme was announced in September, prompted by the region’s worsening heat, drought, and wildfires. Water trading pros and cons Proponents argue the new market will clear up some of the uncertainty around water prices for farmers and municipalities, helping them budget for the resource. But some experts say treating water as a tradable commodity puts a basic human right into the hands of financial institutions and investors. Wall Street’s...

    Want to make money and help the world, too? Wall Street says you can! If you invest in "socially responsible" funds, say big investment funds like BlackRock, Parnassus, TIAA-CREF, etc., then they'll do good things for the world, and your retirement funds will grow. These funds obsess about what they call Environmental, Social and Governance factors. For example, Parnassus says it picks investments based on "their environmental impact, how they treat their employees, the quality of their relationships with local communities." People believe. More than $100 billion poured in just in the first half of this year. But I won't...
  • Wall Street Loves When Communist China Tells Sweet Billion-Dollar Lies: No matter how much Big US firms kowtow to the CCP, they will never gain the kind of market access they desire

    Nowadays, one of the few issues that can unite Republicans and Democrats in Congress is the effort to hold Communist China accountable. In early December, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation that would ban trading shares of Chinese companies whose audit papers aren’t inspected by U.S. regulators for three consecutive years. The same legislation was approved with bipartisan support in the U.S. Senate in May and President Trump is likely to sign it into law in the coming days.This effort is long overdue. Chinese companies have enjoyed open access to U.S. capital markets for years and collectively raised...

    Dan Alexander Forbes Staff Billionaires Senior editor at Forbes, covering Donald Trump's business. Donald Trump continued to shift money from his donors to his business last month, as his reelection campaign paid his private companies for rent, food, lodging and other expenses, according to a review of the latest Federal Election Commission filings. The richest president in American history, who has yet to donate to his 2020 campaign, has now moved $2.3 million of contributions from other people into his private companies. The most recent expenses look familiar. The president accepted $38,000 in rent last month through Trump Tower Commercial...

    Wall Street and the biggest U.S. banks, after spending a fortune to unseat President Trump, are getting key spots in Democrat Joe Biden’s transition team that he has devised before the presidential election is certified. Detailed by the New York Times, Biden’s list of transition team members includes former Wall Street employees and those with close ties to Wall Street. Many of the big banks with links to Biden transition team members were major donors to the former vice president. The Times reports: Commerce Department: The review team is led by Geovette Washington of the University of Pittsburgh, who previously...

    The polls may be tightening as the 2020 presidential election is just over a week away, but Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his top advisers are already laying out an aggressive economic agenda that would make raising taxes their top and immediate priority if the former vice president is elected, FOX Business has learned. Biden continues to tell Wall Street supporters his sweeping plan for tax increases on wealthy individuals and corporations will likely be introduced as legislation almost immediately upon taking office despite the nation’s pandemic-induced economic slowdown, people familiar with Biden’s campaign strategy tell FOX Business. Biden advisers...

While planting a new headquarters in West Palm Beach, Singer will also keep space in Midtown Manhattan and open offices in Greenwich so that all of his employees are not required to relocate, the publication said.

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is raking in tens of millions of dollars from Wall Street, weeks away from the November 3 election against President Trump. In the last few months, Biden’s campaign and his fundraising committees have “benefited from big money contributions from finance leaders on Wall Street and across the country,” according to a new report by CNBC. Wall Street donors to date have spent more than $50 million to help get Biden elected, as they view his candidacy as a return to the economic status quo, which has often spelled economic decline for Main Street.

    Wall Street veteran and Alpha Investor Editor Charles Mizrahi talked to MRC Business about his frustrations with the media’s leftist agenda using the coronavirus to attack American capitalism. Talking heads like Financial Times Editor-in-Chief Roula Khalaf had argued that “capitalism needs a reset.” The socialist-loving FT Editorial Board had said that “Governments will have to accept a more active role in the economy.” Mizrahi, an observant Jew, wasn’t buying any of it. He argued based on a powerful op-ed he wrote for RealClearReligion headlined “Prosperity and Generosity: The Biblical Roots of Capitalism.” His main point is that the media is...

    Using biased banks to make the absurd claim that Wall Street is warming up to the idea of a “blue wave” in November is like using field mice to claim that the animal kingdom is warming up to the idea of a cheese festival. This is the strategy CNN and MSNBC used in an attempt to fool their viewers into thinking Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s left-wing extremist economic plans are in any way, shape or form good for the U.S. economy. CNN Newsroom and MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle both pushed during their October 6 editions how Goldman Sachs...

    In the summer of 2017, the Trump Administration proposed and the Congress enacted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This legislation cut tax rates in every bracket and ensured higher take-home pay for the working and middle classes. The average family of four saved $2,000 in taxes and 91% in the middle income quintile received a tax cut. The US economy boomed. During this week's debate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told viewers that "I'm going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts. The Republican notion that people have a right to keep more of their hard-earned money is mistaken and...

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is raking in Wall Street cash from all the big banks at five times the rate of President Trump, a CNN report admits. An analysis by CNN found that “all the big banks are backing Biden” against Trump, with the former vice president taking a larger margin of Wall Street donations than even failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did in 2016. CNN reports: The securities and investment industry donated just $10.5 million to Trump’s presidential campaign and outside groups aligned with it, according to a new tally by OpenSecrets. It has sent nearly five...

    Just sharing this with you because it is something I need to learn how to do more often. and more importantly, do it. If you don't have an account with Schwab or other zero commission broker, you need to get one. The pattern is basically this: (1) Watch a few (probably no more than 3 dozen) stocks which (a)trade a lot, (b)have some strong swings, (c)are basically good investments. (2) When news happens which causes a unusual swing (40% in this case, 5% in a more typical case), take the opposite position as the market because such swings are almost...

    Kamala Harris knows that big business and big government can get along quite well—there is money to be made off of big government, and big business is often best positioned to make it. Wall Street loves Kamala Harris. According to the Wall Street Journal, which ought to know, “Much of Wall Street cheered” her selection as Joe Biden’s running mate. No surprise there. Despite Bernie Sanders and his followers, Wall Street and big business are at home in the Democratic Party. Big Tech in particular has reason to celebrate Harris’s selection, as she has close ties to Silicon Valley.There will,...

    Wall Street’s many campaign donors are lining up behind Joe Biden, not the incumbent President of the United States, according to the New York Times. Under the August 9 headline, “The Wallets of Wall Street Are With Joe Biden, if Not the Hearts,” three reporters wrote: While Wall Street financiers tend to be more socially liberal, they have collectively swung back and forth between parties. Data from the Center for Responsive Politics show the securities and investment community donating more to President George W. Bush in 2004, and then to Mr. Obama in 2008, and then to Mitt Romney in...

    Some of Wall Street's most prominent names have donated thousands of dollars to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's opponent in the upcoming Democratic primary in New York, data from the FEC shows. Federal Election Commission data shows that donors including Goldman Sachs' CEO David Solomon, Blackstone's Stephen Schwarzman, and hedge fund behemoth Paul Tudor Jones have given to the campaign of Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. Caruso-Cabrera, a former CNBC reporter, is going up against Ocasio-Cortez to secure the Democratic nomination for New York's 14th congressional district on June 23. **SNIP** Caruso-Cabrera has raised just over $2 million so far, while Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has received more...

    Joe Biden has adopted the anti-Wall Street rhetoric of some of his former rivals for the Democrat nomination, but that has not stopped him from collecting an enormous war chest of campaign cash from the financial sector. Biden on Tuesday said that America “wasn’t built by Wall Street bankers and CEOs, it was built by the great American middle class.” Securities industry employees, a close proxy for Wall Street, have donated $29,703,244 to Biden’s campaign or to political committees supporting his campaign for the presidency, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. The sector is the second-largest source of...
