Tax Shocker

By Giggy Ignati - Mar 20 2019
Read more

Heather Long's recent assertion that most people will be paying less in taxes - I want to see some real data to back that one up. I did my taxes. I live on a fixed income. My gross tax amount on the same level of income went up by 28%. That's not what was withheld. That is how much more in taxes I will be paying in 2018 than I did in 2017. Go check your data and get back to me.

Rank #13: Extreme Makeover: Hudson Yards Edition

Podcast cover
Read more

Hudson Yards is officially open to the public. What was once the site of warehouses, tenements, and rail yards is now home to the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center. From the initial idea to the opening this week, it’s taken nearly 20 years— and $25 billion — to create the sprawling 28-acre megaproject on the west side of Manhattan. The new neighborhood features supertall glass towers, luxury apartments, a high-end retail and restaurant hub, and a climbable honeycomb-like structure called the Vessel. And this is just phase one. Debuting in April, a new arts center called The Shed will be home to art galleries, concerts, and theater performances. There are also plans to build more public space, housing, and and even a new school. It’s a carefully-curated new neighborhood built from scratch. This week on WNYC's Money Talking, Charlie Herman talks to Greg David, columnist at Crain’s New York Business, about the long road to the new Hudson Yards.

Rank #19: Can The Fed Stop a Trade War?

Podcast cover
Read more

Jerome Powell has only been serving as Chairman of the Federal Reserve since February, but he's already having to contend with some unusual circumstances. This week, he appeared before Congress to speak about the state of the economy. Lawmakers wanted to know what America’s top central banker thinks about President Trump's steadily escalating trade war. Since January, Trump has imposed or threatened to impose tariffs on 10,000 different products the U.S. imports from Mexico, Canada, Europe, and China. Those countries are retaliating with tariffs of their own. Powell avoided commenting on Trump's tariffs, but did share the view of many economists on trade: "In general, countries that have remained open to trade that haven’t erected barriers including tariffs have grown faster, had higher incomes, had higher productivity and countries that have gone in more protectionist direction have done worse", said Powell. "I think that’s the empirical result." This week on Money Talking, Ilya Marritz speaks to Neil Irwin of The New York Times on America’s growing protectionism, and how the Fed is preparing for it.
