Tax Shocker

By Giggy Ignati - Mar 20 2019

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.

Where Things Stand Between the U.S. and China Over Trade

Podcast cover
Read more

President Donald Trump has stymied hopes of a trade deal by raising tariffs on Chinese goods. In retaliation, China put additional tariffs on U.S. goods, causing the stock market to plunge that day. The Trump administration responded to that by taking steps to implement tariffs on even more Chinese products. So, who’s winning the trade war? Trump’s approach could signal a historic shift in U.S. policy which has largely encouraged free trade around the globe. The casualties of this fight could include American farmers, the Chinese companies, and the U.S. economy and consumers. But it might also lead to changes in how U.S. companies conduct business in China. This week on Money Talking, POLITICO Chief Economic Correspondent Ben White talks to host Charlie Herman about how much these escalating tensions should concern us.

Podcast cover
Read more

Recent financial reports filed by the 2020 presidential candidates show vastly different amounts of money raised in varying amounts from many different sources. Some candidates are focusing on small donors, others are turning to high-dollar bundlers and some are dipping into their own bank accounts. For example, Senator Elizabeth Warren raised raised $6 million in three months for her campaign, while Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke each raised that much in just a day. Yet with more than a year to go until the 2020 election, how much will the money they raise today matter in the long run? This week on WNYC’s Money Talking, host Charlie Herman talks to CNN national political writer Fredreka Schouten and The Washington Post national political reporter Michelle Lee about the candidates’ funds so far and their chances in the long run.

"Avengers: Endgame" is officially opened at movie theaters across the country. It’s the most highly-anticipated movie event of the year and is expected to set a new box office record.
