James,”Big Jim”,Larkin…Love of the Irish

Posted on

James Larkin was born January 21,1876 in Liverpool, England. Being a true Irishman at heart, James dedicated his life to one purpose: fighting for equality in labor for the Irish. His career as an activist began in 1905, when he joined the National Union of the Dock Laborers; which led him to becoming a full-time trade union organizer.

Now a full-time organizer, “Big Jim”, would go on to establish the Irish Transport and General Worker’s Union in 1908. James had three main goals in mind when the union was formed: improve working conditions, restore self respect, and encourage social equality for all men, including the Irish.

Later on in 1911, Larkin created a weekly newspaper, the ‘Irish Worker and the People’s Advocate’, which became very successful, reaching over 20,000 Irishmen. In 1913, Larkin led over 100,000 workers to what became the, “Dublin Lockout”; which still remains the largest industrial conflict in Irish history.

The Dublin Lockout destroyed the ITGWU that James invested so much energy into; and shortly thereafter, James attempted to find success in the U.S. as a means to somehow raise money for his union’s recovery efforts. Read more: James Larkin | Biography and James Larkin | Wikipedia

Unfortunately, his time in the U.S. was plagued by failure and controversy, which eventually led to Larkin being arrested in 1919 for his role in the “Red Scare”. In 1923, James was deported back to Ireland, where despite his persistence, he was eventually band from the union he created.

James Larkin dedicated his life to the Irish. Although in his latter years it seems he went astray, no person can ever downplay the importance of James Larkin not only in the Irish history books, but also how unionizing is done today. Despite his flaws, he truly had love for the Irish.


Ted Bauman Sees 3 Ways the Stock Market Could Go

Posted on

Ted Bauman was recently featured in the Premier Gazette article Finance Expert Ted Bauman Explains 10 Lucrative Tax Tips” written by Stephen Ray. The article provides advice from the financial writer who has a newsletter published with Banyan Hill Publishing.

He is dedicated to helping people obtain financial freedom and his latest advice helps taxpayers benefit from tax laws before they change. Ted Bauman reveals that it is incredibly important for everyone to understand the tax bill that has been passed. Though most of the rules will apply to income that was made after 2018, it is still important for everyone to know them. The taxpayers with low incomes will pay less because of the rise in the standard deduction. One of the new rules for business owners is that they will be able to have a bigger deduction for personal taxes. They can reduce up to 20% of 2018’s LLC, S corporation or partnership’s profits.

One of the main tips he provides is to prepay the 2018 mortgage interest before 2017 ran out. He also suggests that people should pay for medical services prior to the end of 2017 and deduct them when taxes are due. He suggests people should do this because the Affordable Care Act was effective through 2017. He also suggests that people should keep the receipts of their donations. He also reveals that people could benefit from paying the interest of their student loans.

The financial advisor was also featured in the Chronicle of Week article “Ted Bauman Explains 3 Possible Stock Market Crash Outcomes.” The article, written by Samuel Thorpe, reveals that the stock market may plummet or the bull market may continue. Ted Bauman has a proven track record in providing people with sound economic device. He gained knowledge of low-risk investments during his time in Africa where he studied economics and history. He worked in nonprofits to help people find low-income housing.

He suggests the stock market may return to the average ratio because the U.S. stocks are currently overvalued. He focuses on the CAPE ratio which includes the price-to-earnings ratio.

Luiz Carlos Trabucos Experience Led Him To Make a Statement About Brazils Economy

Posted on

Brazil is undergoing a recovery from its economic decline. It was indeed great news to the Brazilians as they can finally live a better life in their country. However, former president of the Trabuco Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco, informed the nation that this isn’t the right time to celebrate as it’s “too early” to do it. The former bank president, Luiz Carlos Trabuco, claims that the recovery process of the country’s economy is still ongoing. This means that if a mistake is done, the recovery will end right on the economic cycle that’s occurring to Brazil as of this moment. Read this article about Luis Carlos Trabuco at Estadao.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco says that a reform is needed in order to ensure the longevity of the economy’s recovery. He added that the recovery is just a cycle change in the economy of Brazil due to the low comparison bases. Thus, the cycle change may be the only recovery period of the economy itself if there’s no reform that will be added to the system of the country. He even stated that the recovery of the economy will be a “chicken flight” if no reforms are added at all.

One factor that he added for keeping the recovery stable is to make sure that government spending will be limited in the form of a ceiling spending technique. The Trabuco Bradesco former president states that the lack of proper reform will make other countries question about the capability of Brazil to rise up from its own issues.

The idea of reform is actually being respected by a presidential candidate. Governor Geraldo Alckmin states that he will make a pension reform as a priority once he wins the presidential elections. It just shows that the capability of Luiz Carlos Trabuco in monitoring finances can be very valuable in helping the country thanks to his experience and tenure over the industry of finances.

After all, he was the former president of Trabuco Bradesco, until he got replaced by Octavio De Lazari Jr. His replacement was a president of another sector that Bradesco controls. This was a change of succession and nomination that was decided by the committee within Bradesco. This resulted in the retirement of Trabuco, but the government and many companies still see him as a great talent in the finance sector of Brazil. It was all evident anyway as his tenure in Bradesco as CEO proved his worth as an economic analyst. Read more at Ultimo Segundo about Luis Carlos Trabuco.

Asset management under the Fortress investment group

Posted on

In March 2018 the Fortress investment group announced that it raises two billion dollars as its push towards corporate lending hit full steam. The group has expanded on different levels, especially since its acquisition by the Softbank investment bank. The group had in 2015 raised approximately five billion dollars which have been used to advance a line of credit to special opportunities, investments an area that continues to experience unprecedented growth since its inception.

These are some of the newer models of investment that the fortress investment group has been capitalizing on while at the same time maintaining its traditional investments. The group has been primarily concerned with the asset management, which was initially the founding partner’s goal. This firm began managing four hundred million dollars and would grow these assets sixfold by their fifth year of operation.

At the time with 3.2 billion dollars under management Fortress was, according to private equity holders approximately 39 percent return on investment which was one of the best performing at the time. When the group realized that private equity was not growing as fast as they had anticipated they would bring in Peter Briger from Goldman to help the Group establish the credit division, which would be used for various roles including advancing others a line of credit as a form of investment while also enabling them to debt finance some of their investments.

The ability of the group to identify where it required to improve quite early on was one of the key aspects that set them apart and helped them benefit from a fast-changing investment environment. Over the years The Fortress Investment Group would list on the New York Stock Exchange and trade under the FIG initials.

The stock at the time grew by an incredible rate attaining a seventy-six percent growth rate at its peak. This would make the Fortress Investment Group one of the most successful listings making some of its partner’s billionaires while Peter Briger was named as one of the most influential business professions in the United States. This is a legacy that the group still holds on to this day.
