MBA Student: My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us!

Image
Omar, Sanders and AOC have called for dismantling our economic system and replacing it with Socialism.
This article was written by a 26 yr old college student by the name of Alyssa Ahlgren, who's in grad school for her MBA.

“My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us! I'm sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis (Florida) trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of presidential candidates calling for policies to "fix" the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around.

I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook's and ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me; we live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous Nation and we've become completely blind to it.

Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we…

Homeowners Associations: Beware, Be Careful

Image
I have put together a series of resources and videos on Homeowners Associations. I focus on Texas, but these laws and procedures are common in many states. I've tried to be "neutral" and not just focus on the negatives of HOAs, as there are some benefits to these organizations. Most of the videos simply deal with your rights as a homeowner. 
Many states have a state agency that regulates or monitors HOAs. However. Texas does not. 
Here are some other resources that might be useful:

Many Jobs Will Not Come Back

Image
While the continued drop in the official unemployment rate and the record boom in new jobs in June look promising, it’s important to remember they’re just a snapshot of what the economy looked like in mid-June. And a lot has changed since then with COVID-19 infections spiking again in several states. That could have a seismic impact on several important sectors of the economy just ahead.

To understand why the number of permanent job losses continues to increase, we need to go back to a Labor Department (DOL) issue when the DOL admitted it did not count millions of Americans who had been furloughed as being unemployed. Instead it classified them as “employed but not at work.”

The DOL just assumed all or most of those workers would be returning to their jobs as soon as the COVID-19 pandemic was under control. Yet as we all know, many of those former jobs are never coming back, and not counting them as unemployed was a “misclassification error,” the Labor Department admitted.

While the DOL …
