"The strongest dollar in more than 11 years is coming soon to stores across the U.S.!!!

 

The 24 percent surge in the currency since June will take time to gradually ripple through the world’s largest economy, first showing up in lower costs for goods imported by American companies and then in the prices paid by consumers, according to economists at Barclays Plc, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. That means the dollar will be the next check on inflation, replacing oil as fuel costs stabilize.

 

“The energy price pass-through should begin to wane by the end of the first quarter,” said Michael Gapen, the New York-based chief U.S. economist for Barclays. “The peak drag from the dollar will come in the second and third quarters.”

Clothing, electronics and automobiles are among the items that will probably carry smaller price tags as the greenback’s appreciation works its way to store shelves and dealer showrooms. That will give an added boost to household buying power, which is already benefiting from the lowest gasoline prices in six years and larger job gains.

 

“You can’t expect a better environment for consumers,” said Gregory Daco, lead U.S. economist at Oxford Economics in New York. Combined with cheaper fuel, “the stronger dollar is an additional layer of downward pressure on inflation.”

The rest of the western world is sliding into the abyss.

 

That was the dream of his father.

 

The resultant strengthening of the dollar is only because we weren't first.

 

His minion will claim it to His credit.

It's always so-much-fun, exposing Teabaggers for the damned-fools they are!!!

 

"Energy-related carbon dioxide emissions flatlined globally in 2014, while the world economy grew. The International Energy Agency reports that this marks “the first time in 40 years in which there was a halt or reduction in emissions of the greenhouse gas that was not tied to an economic downturn.”

 

The IEA attributes this remarkable occurrence to “changing patterns of energy consumption in China and OECD countries.” As we reported last month, China cut its coal consumption 2.9 percent in 2014, the first drop this century. China is aggressively embracing energy efficiency, expanding clean energy, and shuttering the dirtiest power plants to meet its planned 2020 (or sooner) peak in coal use. As a result, Chinese CO2 emissions dropped 1 percent in 2014 even as their economy grew by 7.4 percent.

 

At the same time, the Financial Times pointed out, “In the past five years, OECD countries’ economies grew nearly 7 percent while their emissions fell 4 percent, the IEA has found.”

 

A big part of that is the United States, where fuel economy standards have reversed oil consumption trends — and renewable energy, efficiency, and natural gas have cut U.S. coal consumption."

Our President Obama is making me a very rich man. I've recovered 3 fold from the Jr bush republicunt economy of 2008.

 

So, being the good socialist you are, you're going to donate the windfall profits to the government for the common good, right?

I'm trying to find out how Obama did that when he doesn't produce anything. LOL! Now if you said those are accomplishments of the American people, I would agree with you. Even under a Republican presidency, economic accomplishments are a result of the hard work we Americans do, not the federal government.

I heard they made the dollar work out at Gold's Gym.

It was Planet Fitness. Low fees and it didn't really do anything. But it went there, so it felt better about itself. They also feed you at Planet Fitness, so the dollar might get inflated.

"The Bank of New York Mellon will pay $714 million to settle accusations that it cheated government pension funds and other investors for more than a decade, federal and state authorities announced on Thursday, part of a broader deal requiring the bank to dismiss some employees and overhaul its foreign exchange operation.

 

The settlement — struck with Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in Manhattan, and Eric T. Schneiderman, the New York attorney general, who both sued the bank in 2011 — centers on what the authorities called a “fraudulent business model” for the bank’s foreign exchange group.

 

The bank assured clients that they would enjoy a particular foreign exchange service “free of charge” and would receive the best possible price when executing a currency trade. Yet in reality, the authorities said, the bank did just the opposite: It imposed “a substantial and undisclosed fee” and provided clients “virtually the worst rates,” enabling the bank to rake in extra cash during the 2008 financial crisis.

 

The victims of the fraud were an unlikely collection of New York City pension funds and prominent private investors, the authorities said. City investors included teachers and police officers, while the private investment funds belonged to the likes of Duke University and the Walt Disney Company.

 

“Investors count on financial institutions to tell them the truth about how their investments are being managed,” Mr. Schneiderman said in a statement. “Today’s settlement shows that institutions and individuals responsible for defrauding investors will be held accountable and face serious consequences for their wrongdoing.”

 

In his own statement, Mr. Bharara noted that clients “trusted the bank to be honest about the financial services it was providing and to deal with them fairly.” But instead, he said, the bank “and its executives, motivated by outsized profits and bonuses, breached this trust.”

 

The settlement, which requires the approval of a federal judge, accounts for only one of the dozens of government investigations currently sweeping Wall Street."

So Detroit and Chicago should be nice and affordable places to live soon? With a stronger dollar you should be able to avoid paying more in taxes? This kind of story is a joke.

Sorry, I meant to upvote that comment, and since I can't undo it, I gave you two other upvotes to offset the difference.

Obamacare!! Obamacare!! Obamacare!!

"Five years ago, President Obama signed the landmark Affordable Care Act into law. Since then, the law that’s come to be known simply as “Obamacare” has survived a Supreme Court challenge, stumbled through a rocky website rollout, weathered massive political misinformation campaigns, withstood dozens of repeal attempts, and ultimately extended health care to millions of Americans who used to be uninsured.

 

So, on Obamacares fifth birthday, here’s how health reform is faring:...."
