This podcast is good that she picks up on facts that may affect you as an investor. However, she finally got political, which saddened me. One thing this podcast is not is international (Forget Costa Rica). Like I said, good info but a bit behind the times regarding evaluation and implementation.

It could be a do or die lawsuit for the real estate industry. A home seller in Minnesota filed a class action lawsuit against the National Association of Realtors for anti-competitive behavior.

A new look at the financial health of the Millennial generation shows they are far behind their predecessors. The Wall Street Journal combined data from the Census Bureau and other sources to come up with a snapshot of a generation with “less wealth, less property, lower marriage rates, and fewer children.” That data has negative implications for them, the housing market, and for public programs like Social Security that depend on the income potential of younger workers.   www.NewsForInvestors.com

The National Association of Homebuilders reported a 3-point rise in their home builder confidence index to 66. Anything higher than 50 is in positive territory.

Rank #12: FEMA Flood Insurance Overhaul

A major overhaul of the National Flood Insurance Program is finally underway in Congress. It’s been in desperate need of reform for years as storms grow more severe and the program falls into more debt. The new plan is expected to increase insurance rates in flood-prone areas. It could also impact home values in those areas, but the cost to insure individual homes will more accurately reflect the ongoing risk.   www.NewsForInvestors.com

Rank #19: Results of the Tax Overhaul, One Year Later

Podcast cover
Read more
The massive $1.5 trillion tax cut package has now had one year to work its magic on the U.S. economy, but instead of an expected economic boom, some economists are calling it a bust. One of the biggest changes in the federal tax code was a reduction in corporate taxes from 35% to 21%. That was supposed to boost corporate spending and hiring plans, and contribute to U.S. economic growth, but a new survey shows there were few long-term benefits.   www.NewsForInvestors.com
