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.

Subway’s franchisees allege corporate mismanagement

Podcast cover
Read more

The largest fast-food company in the world -- with about 24,000 stores -- was once known for its rapid expansion mindset. Now, Subway is closing stores faster than ever and pushing out franchise owners in the process.

In a recent report by the New York Times, franchisees across the country said that seemingly tiny violations, like cucumbers cut too thick and smudges on glass doors, have cost them their businesses. And when they try appeal to Subway's corporate leadership? They rarely get a response.  

This week on Money Talking, guest host Ilya Marritz talks to Tiffany Hsu, a business reporter at the New York Times who co-reported the piece, about how Subway's efforts to scale back have impacted franchisees.

Is a New Space Race on the Horizon?

Podcast cover
Read more

Next week marks fifty years since Neil Armstrong took “one small step” on the moon’s surface. The Apollo 11 mission was an historic voyage, fulfilling President John F. Kennedy’s goal of reaching the moon by the end of the 1960s. More than half a billion people watched the astronauts live on television. But in the years that followed, America’s interest and commitment to space exploration largely disappeared. 

Yet the country’s ambitions in space are far from over. In March of this year, Vice President Mike Pence expressed a renewed sense of urgency.

“Make no mistake about it — we're in a space race today, just as we were in the 1960s, and the stakes are even higher,” he told attendees at a meeting of the National Space Council in Alabama.

At the same meeting, Pence presented a new timeline for landing humans on the moon again: Within the next five years, four years sooner than the administration's initial timeline of 2028, leaving some to wonder if a new space race could be on the horizon.  

This week on Money Talking, Charlie Herman talks to Tim Fernholz, a reporter at Quartz covering space and author of Rocket Billionaires: Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and the New Psace Race, about the latest chapter of space exploration.

From Wall Street to Walmart, Businesses Embrace Pride

Podcast cover
Read more

This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the birth of the modern gay rights movement in this country. Over the intervening years as attitudes towards LGBTQ people have changed, corporate America has taken note. Whether it's McDonald's selling special-edition “Pride Fries” or Walmart’s (online) Pride Shop, companies have very publicly been displaying support for the community over the last few years.

It’s a dramatic shift from the days of Anita Bryant and Florida orange juice or companies like Wendy’s pulling their advertisements after Ellen came out on her sitcom. The greater acceptance of the LGBTQ community has presented an opportunity for businesses. While some take issue with companies commercializing this weekend's pride events, it’s hard to ignore how much mainstream businesses have embraced LGBTQ culture and consumers.

This week on Money Talking, Charlie Herman talks to Jim Ellis, assistant managing editor at Bloomberg Businessweek, about the business of pride past, present, and future.

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.

Hey, Big Spender: Presidential Candidates And The Race to Raise Money

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.
