Sen. Elizabeth Warren: Billionaires should ‘stop being freeloaders’

Published

on

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who declared an exploratory committee for president a month ago, guarded her new recommendation that would ramp up taxes on the country’s highest earners.

“You know that top one tenth of 1% this year, taxes all in, they’re gonna pay about 3.2% of their total worth in taxes to help keep everything running around here. You know what the 99% is gonna pay this year? They’re gonna pay about 7.2% of their wealth. That’s more than twice as much,” she said on CNBC Thursday.

“What I want is I want these billionaires to stop being freeloaders. I want them to pick up their fair share. That’s how we make a system that works not just for the rich and the powerful but works for all of us.”

Warren, who is one of a few progressive candidates likely looking for the Democratic nomination in 2020, proposed a “ultra-millionaire tax,” this end of the week for those with a net worth that exceeds $50 million.

“All I’m asking for is a little slice from the tippy, tippy top. A slice that would raise — and this is the shocking part, Jim — about $2.75 trillion over the next 10 years,” she said Thursday. “That’s money we need so that every kid in this country has a decent childcare opportunity, has an opportunity for pre-K, has an opportunity for a decent school.”

Warren has hit back against criticism of the plan from Michael Bloomberg and Howard Schultz, two billionaire businessmen who are thinking about Democratic and Independent presidential bids, respectively.

“We have watched billionaires stand up and say, ‘Look, I want to run for president. And one of the first planks in my plan is going to be no new taxes for billionaires,’” she said Thursday.

Warren’s tax proposal comes as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who declared for the current month her presidential campaign, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), considered by numerous individuals to be a likely candidate, introduced their own tax plans ahead of a fight to court the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

As US Dollar Drops, Vextrader Keeps Investors Ahead of the Curve

Published

on

Vextraders managed funds programs and innovative software have helped investors navigate the recent drops of the US Dollar following NFP and ADP releases.

BELIZE – With the release of new ADP and NFP reports this past week, forex investors have faced a reality check. Although the NFP report included a mix of indications for the future, investors were disappointed by the job creation report, which came in below the ADP forecast. The NFP reported 559,000 new jobs created in May, and the difference between this and the ADP’s predictions reflected the difficulty that companies have faced in hiring workers after the shifts of the pandemic.

In the near future, the US dollar may experience a short-term bottom. This may also be affected by the ECB decision and CPI report coming up this week. The last month’s CPI prompted concerns about a short-term inflation spike, but the Fed reassured investors that this will be a transitory phenomenon.

Business Blurb Founder Brendan Cox Talks Social Media, His New Book And The Future of Influencers

Published

on

If you haven’t heard of Brendan Cox, you most likely have heard of Business Blurb. Cox founded the company alongside entrepreneur turned influencer Devin Caherly early last year. According to a Forbes interview, Business Blurb is solving “the gap between actual news and what gets said on social media.” The New Jersey based media company has been compared to a modern day “Forbes” targeted at Gen Z by various publications.

What’s next for Business Blurb:

When asking Brendan about the future of Business Blurb he told us, “Funny enough – I couldn’t give you a definite answer for the future of Business Blurb. We are a media start-up and with the social media industry changing so fast it’s hard to see where we will be in 5 years.” He gave us some insight on some of the futuristic projects that they are working on that cater heavily to the Gen-Z audience, “Our text-line is essentially a news aggregator that texts you the top 5 trending business headlines every morning. Our team understands the power of text marketing in comparison to email marketing and we wanted to hone in on instant reach, fast open-rates, and legitimate engagement.”

You recently launched a new book, tell us about it:

Cox recently launched his new book ‘365 Days of Social Posts For Real Estate Agents’ which is a social media marketing book targeted towards real estate agents. Cox explained his motivation behind the book, “I genuinely noticed a need for content ideas and strategy amongst real estate agents.” He continued, “Through my social media agency, Cox Visuals I work behind the scenes of business owners and realtors and this opened my mind to the concept behind this book. So many forward-thinking agents understand the power of building a digital footprint across various platforms but aren’t sure where to start or what to post, and this is exactly what my new book guides agents through.”

What does the future of influencer marketing look like:

Along with founding Business Blurb, Cox’s day-to-day is his social media agency, Cox Visuals. Cox works alongside both businesses and influencers to help them leverage the power of social media. Cox told us, “We help influencers understand the full potential of their platforms through delivering brand marketing and social media expertise that will cultivate growth and monetization opportunities.”

We hope to be able to keep you in the loop with his future endeavors here but also make sure to connect with him on Linkedin and Instagram. If you want to check out his latest book, grab a copy of ‘365 Days of Social Posts For Real Estate Agents’ on Amazon.
