The Wall Street Journal puts it this way: “The coronavirus is a killer with a crowbar, breaking and entering human cells with impunity. It hitchhikes across continents carried on coughs and careless hands, driven by its own urgent necessity to survive. It has a gregarious side that makes it hard to resist. It loves a party. This social climber claims its victims around the world by riding on moments of the most innocent of human interactions—a shared laugh, a conversation, an embrace. ...........And.... it can kill you".. So much has been learned about the virus and how to treat it, but we are now finding out even more about its ORIGINS. Today Steve and I review the Wall Street Journal report revealing facts that may shock you! Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for a timely Q & A.

One thing that all these debates sorely lack is FACT-CHECKING. For example, the USA Today moderator during the Harris-Pence debate actually got something CORRECT that CNN and MSNBC constantly get wrong! It has to do with the ages of the candidates. Democrats don't like talking about the age factor for some odd reason. Their pitch is that the candidates are (quote) "BOTH old", and always state that Mr. Trump is 75, Biden 77. Quite wrong. Donald Trump is seventy-FOUR, having been born June 14, 1946. Joe Biden was born in November of 1942. He will be 78 in November and on inauguration day if he wins. Also, Democrats love to say that Mr. Trump has never denounced white supremacists, and Mr. Biden has said that he was the VP during the Parkland shooting in Florida. We have the factual sound bytes on all of this and much more today, in a show you definitely don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
Well, it's Debate Night in America again, and believe it or not, most polls indicate that two out of three Americans favor Medicare for All. Of course, it would Medicare For All, which would be a fully government-run, single-payer health insurance plan, was supported by many Democratic presidential candidates, including the one who is now Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris. Public support is as high as three to one. Biden's spending plans which include free college and massive climate change spending and an overhaul of the health care system will add not less than six trillion dollars to our deficits while taxing job creators at higher levels. Today, we'll examine his "Medicare-at-60" plan, designed to attract voters in their late fifties and early sixties. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.

If it feels like the price of everything you buy has been soaring, that’s because it HAS—even as central bankers everywhere worry about the danger of DEE-flation. That said, the prices of many things like clothing, airline tickets and ladies' make up are way DOWN. According to James MacIntosh, writing for the Wall Street Journal, the price of the stuff we’re BUYING is rising much faster, while the stuff we’re no longer buying has been falling. And then there is government spending. Both republicans and democrats have used COVID 19 to punch their ticket to unabated borrowing and spending. So, that means inflation right? …Well, not so fast, and today we'll explain the important, hidden economic indicator that could pop the bubble for those thinking gold and silver are going up.

Many investors think that the only way to build wealth is to see the price of your stocks go up, however, many stock more fortunes have been built with stock splits and dividends reinvested over time.

With the Federal Reserve signaling low interest rates for the foreseeable future, as in YEARS FORWARD, the Wall Street Journal reports that many pension funds are weighing bigger bets on stocks of late. Since the 2008 crash, many pension funds have steered clear of the equities market, but the lowest interest rates on bonds in the nation’s 200 year history are increasingly forcing them to look more to Wall Street. This rotation to stocks could provide serious demand pressure to the upside for stocks, with a potential focus on dividend and technology stocks. There are also other new groups of investors interested in stock market ownership--known as Robin Hood investors-- driving another wave of demand. Investors are realizing that a Trump win means a higher market and a Blue Wave could bring a huge selloff. So how do you invest? We'll share the recipe with you to win either way. Plus we'll hear from billionaire Dana White... you don't want to miss it...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
Like him or hate him, Donald Trump has spent his career trying to increase revenues and lower taxes. For those that vote for him, those are two very key issues. Others want a more socialistic setup—where there is not just equality of opportunity, but guaranteed equality of OUTCOME. Much is being made of Donald Trump’s tax returns in the campaign, however, is it fair? Thousands, if not millions, of Democrats, Republicans, pastors, teachers, and rabbi’s own rental real estate, and being able to deduct a healthy amount on the depreciation of the building is one big reason for owning it. And, property taxes are deductible. It’s not a loop-hole, it’s the LAW! Today, we'll do a fact check on Donald Trump and his real estate, and then Medicare expert SHELLEY GRANDIDGE joins us.
