Where credit is due?

Everyone have to recognize one basic fact.  WE are not the customers of Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion.  That’s right- banks, credit cards, finance companies, employers- these are the customers of those agencies.  But, the credit reporting firms feel that they have no obligation to keep our information- stuff we NEVER authorized them to collect- secure.

We all keep hearing that the Fed (the Federal Reserve) is confounded.  The economy is growing (albeit slower than they would like), but inflation- given the unemployment rates- is virtually non-existent.  And, what else is non-existent is a real rise in wages.

This question comes up about once every six months.  A client arrives at our door and wants help.  They are overwhelmed with debt.  Sometimes, it’s because they have this business that is not performing as they hoped/wanted/expected (often, because they need the structure and systems to make it so), other times because of an accident or a sudden illness.  But, no matter what the cause, we need to work together to make the situation tenable.

Houston right now is a mess. OK. East Texas is a mess. No, I’m not talking about politics- but the situation as a result of Hurricane/Tropical Storm/Rain Storm Harvey. A name surely to be retired from the potential National Weather Service nomenclature.
And, I heard a great story. One that reminds me that almost every community has a hometown hero.

Real Tax Reform- that grows America and it’s businesses!

No Gravatar

It’s a truism that reforming the corporate tax rates should encourage businesses to invest in ways to improve their bottom line. That normally means finding a way to enhance productivity. But, that also means the lower rates are part of a program to remove special interests.
