President Trump has mentioned that he would like rise interest rates on China. People differ on their opinion of this. Some believe this would be a good thing as more money would come to the United States. Others do not think that is likely. Some believe this will cause some sort of riff between the two countries. There is a major economic relationships shared between China and the United States. People American companies depend on Chinese manufacturers and laborers for their business operations. Since the 1980s, American companies have been quickly moving operations overseas because of lower cost to operate. Ted Bauman could see a potential drawback from the Chinese experiencing higher interest rates. These rates may cause China to cut back on or completely end business deals with American companies. This would disturb many industries, economics and billions or perhaps trillions of dollars done annually in business between the two nations. The analyst and editor also sees where these problems would cause an economic shift in the stock market. This shift would not be positive. Investors in the stock market should be careful and take notice to their investments.

There are certain popular travel routes in the United States that are just too long to conveniently drive and too short to consider the hassles of flying on an airline. This is where Brightline and their new passenger rails are coming into the picture. While there are many people that think trains are outdated, Brightline by Fortress Investment Group is looking to change these opinions and show the world that passenger trains are the transportation of the future.

While there are only a few connected cities today, Fortress Investment Group is already working on expanding their services to many different regions in the United States. One of the most recent expansions involves a route that goes between Las Vegas and Southern California. This route is traveled by approximately 50 million people each year and always by car or plane. While the airline trip may only take about an hour for the flight itself, everyone knows that a plane trip can sometimes take hours longer than the flight itself. The car ride between the 2 areas can take around a grueling 4 hours which can be considerably longer if there are additional traffic backups.

Fortress Investment Group is banking on travelers wanting more options than the ones available today. Brightline offers a unique experience from other modes of travel with impressive amenities such as allowing you to charge your electronics at no extra cost. Many people see their commute as stressful, but with Brightline you can be comfortable for the whole trip.

Brightline recently acquired another rail line, XpressWest and their funding options opened up greatly. The owner of Brightline, Fortress Investment Group, is a private equity firm that is recognized as being one of the premier business in their field. The company, which was founded by Wes Edens, Rob Kauffman, and Randal Nardone in 1998, was the first in its field to offer an IPO.

The new Brightline stations would be on the Las Vegas Strip with a station in Victorville for the stop in Southern California. They estimate that the route will take around 2 hours. As more people see the potential in train travel, the company Fortress Investment Group will continue to expand Brightline.

Success is an uphill climb for many entrepreneurs in Brazil. Entrepreneurs face a high rate of failure due to several reasons. One of the main reasons is the high tax burdens imposed by the government. However, Flavio Maluf does have some suggestions on how to minimize the impact of taxes on Brazilian businesses. These taxes take into consideration of tax incentives.

Flavio Maluf proposes the Fiscal Inventive Laws. This will allow companies to direct a portion their taxes to social, health and cultural programs. Instead of the money heading directly to the government, companies are able to choose programs that focus on improving the social and economic development of Brazil. Read more articles by Flavio Maluf at Business and Economics.

This approach provides a twofold benefit to the companies. Instead of directing the funds directly to the government, companies can strategically direct their funds. The funds have a positive impact socially, while improving the company’s image among the public. This is a unique marketing strategy that can be used to attract additional customers.

The tax proposal also has an additional benefit according to Flavio Maluf. The government can grant tax incentives to specific companies based on their industry. This will allow certain industries to flourish by decreasing their tax burden. The incentive can be applied in several ways. Including tax reduction, compensation and exemption. As a result, companies can reinvest within their organization as well as create jobs. Industries such as information technology, aerospace and agriculture can greatly benefit from the incentive.

In addition to the tax incentive, Maluf also believes that entrepreneurs must have a high amount of ambition. Especially since the path to entrepreneurship is not a smooth road. Entrepreneurs must recognize any limitations that may prevent success as well as correctly identifying their strengths.

Flavio Maluf is the CEO and VP president of Eucatex. Maluf has a background working in the trade industry prior to joining Eucatex. After joining the company in 1987, he quickly ascended to the position of President due to outstanding management skills. Flavio is a graduate of (AmandoAlvaresPenteado Foundation) FAAP where he majored in Mechanical Engineering.



The thought of retirement should be a time and stage in life that people look forward too. It is supposed to be a time to relax and reflect on the labor you have provided and a reward of care in older age for a job well done. That unfortunately is not the reality for many Americans. Society has changed since the days of pensions for many companies. Inflation always plays a big part in the income outcome for those looking to leave the work force. While there are many products to choose to try and help at that next stage of life, Ted Bauman has identified a few that may be better than what is traditional.

Ted Bauman is an editor at Bayan Hill Publishing which sends out letters and write ups on economics, banking and financial services. Ted graduated from Cape Town University in South Africa with a degree in economics. Ted also received his MBA from Georgia State University. Spending 25 years in Africa he has served many business including being a fund manager for low cost housing projects. His knowledge on long term planning for the future has been his focus for a long time.

Ted Bauman believes that over sixty percent of Americans are not prepared for retirement with at least ten thousand or under in savings. The plans that most have through their employer which are 401k plans are good but they put the risk on the employee. These plans are regulated by market fluctuations and take the employee contributing to their future. Some companies do offer a match up to certain amount but there may be other products to consider.

A cash-balanced plan works like a pension plan with some characteristics of a 401K. It does not require employee contributions and places responsibility to manage their own investment choices. The cash balance plan would have the employer making the same contributions as the 401k plan while having the funds managed by professionals. Ted Bauman speaks highly of the cash balanced plans while citing the limitations of the 401k plan suggesting people take a look.
