Clinton v/s Trump: Impact on Wall Street and the Economy at large

Some personal thoughts I thought I’d share about the US markets and economy at large in case of a Clinton or a Trump Presidential victory.

 At the end of the day folks, it is still the “Economy” stupid.

 In the case of a Clinton victory:

 1. I believe you should expect a platform of tougher Wall Street enforcement. And for good reason. Some 67% of the U.S. populace wants a president who favors stricter regulation of financial institutions…Even Republicans to the tune of 58% said they want a candidate willing to toughen Wall Street oversight. Looks like given the hostility of the American people toward financial institutions, no one can get elected, saying they’re going to side with Wall Street.

To all those wide-eyed millennials looking for a break

It breaks my heart to see millions of millennials still chasing rainbows and hoping that the US government or a cartoon character such as Berne Sanders or crooked Hillary Clinton were ever going to change their lives.

Maybe it is time to grow up folks and grow some too and realize that no one is going to take care of you other than yourself if you want to build anything meaningful in your life….whether nailing a big corporate job or creating your own empire. NO ONE. So get used to it, life is not fair and this will never change.

Ever since the paleolithic era we’ve been fighting over scarce resources. Whether this was food, shelter or trendy sabretooth skirts.

Times have changed – but the essence remains the same; it’s resources we’re after.

Money mainly.

In the old days, we used to have a trading system where hunters would trade their catch with fishers for example. This is an equal exchange of value of differently skilled people.

The same concept still applies today. Money simply has made trading your entire life easier.

This system allows us to tap into the expertise of others. The more difficult the task, the more money they get.

Being able to do what others cannot is what makes you “valuable”.

Anyone can sell shoes, anyone can run behind a dumpster truck, anyone can sell fast-food. But not everyone knows how to build a house, lay electrical wiring or perform an open-heart-surgery. The more difficult and in-demand your skills are – the higher your value will rise.

If you want more income – You have to deserve it first.

How?

Why we need to make it easier for China to invest in America

I am frankly flabbergasted that with all the economic issues facing our nation today and our dire need for capital inflows to help invigorate our industries all across the board, we are giving so much hard time for Chinese foreign direct investment in the United States.

It is a fact that Chinese direct investment in our economy is set to reach a new high this year due to a wave of deals announced in early 2016. But experts say the pace is already slowing as politicians and regulators increase their scrutiny of Chinese details.

Some lawmakers are crying foul, protesting that U.S. firms can’t invest easily in many sectors of China’s economy, while the U.S. market is wide open for their Chinese competitors, or nearly so. Efforts to negotiate a bilateral investment treaty between the two countries have stalled as Beijing has sought to rope off numerous industries.

Frankly, I believe this approach is too narrow minded and blindsided and it’s part of a troubling trend.

Dear friends:
Hope all is well and that you are having a great weekend.
This is a personal invite to all those of you who want to make a real difference in the new world order in the making under the Trump presidency and for those of you real interested in shaping both the public and private narratives going forward as well.
You know I was one of the very few who bet on Donald J. Trump from Day One, never wavered and did everything I could – financially and otherwise – to get him elected. At the end of the day, we won against all odds and beat the greatest forces on Planet Earth.
The question now is: Are you willing to ride the bandwagon with me again and capitalize to the fullest extent on the Trump presidency or not? If not you don’t need to continue reading this. If yes, meet the Financial Policy Council
I started the organization back in early 2011 with a few good men and even less resources and during a very challenging economic environment to say the least.

How Donald Trump Broke the glass ceiling and how you can too!

proxy

You read it right. President elect Donald Trump broke the glass ceiling. Shattered it. An entrepreneur without political experience inspired the nation and won the greatest contest in the land. You may agree or disagree with his politics, however, please take a moment and appreciate this amazing feat that was just achieved.

What this proves is that anything is possible. You may be down on your luck, you may be praying to catch a break or maybe you just need a little bit of a push. This is it. Donald Trump shattered the glass ceiling of the political class and proved, that a kid from Queens can bootstrap his way to the White House. If someone can bootstrap his or her way to the White House, you can bootstrap your way to achieve anything you want in life.

Yes, Trump had money to start with and self-funded his campaign. That was his resource. To learn from it, it is important to understand what resources you have and where you are shy resources, and see how you can partner with others.
