Wealth Tax

Democratic presidential candidates Castro, Sanders, and Warren have explicitly sponsored wealth taxation.

Readers may view the candidates’ proposals at their campaign websites:

Castro: https://issues.juliancastro.com/working-families-first/

Sanders: https://berniesanders.com/issues/tax-extreme-wealth/

Warren: https://elizabethwarren.com/plans/ultra-millionaire-tax

A New York Times article published last week considers the economic implications of both Sanders’ and Warren’s proposals: “Democrats’ Plans to Tax Wealth Would Reshape the U.S. Economy” (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/01/us/politics/sanders-warren-wealth-tax.html).

Cumberland Advisors' Robert "Bob" Eisenbeis, Ph.D.

The Market Knows

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York announced on Friday, Oct 4 that it would continue to offer a maximum of $75 billion in overnight repurchase agreements and at the same time offer a series of term repos through at least November 4 according to the following schedule:[1]

This extension seems to be an attempt to use the market to determine exactly how much excess collateral is in the financial system that needs to be financed.  The term repos are a way of sterilizing a large portion of the excess supply of securities and then the overnight repos provide some indication of how much funding may or may not be available on the margin. The following chart provides some clues as to the maximum amount of financing that the Fed may be willing to provide and represents an experiment to let the market determine, given the lack of bank financing that is apparently quite scarce for this market, how big a facility might be necessary to support the primary dealers.

Yahoo Finance - David R. Kotok - U.S. Trade

President Trump’s top trade negotiator Robert Lighthizer was in the Congressional hot seat today facing tough questions from lawmakers on trade and tariffs. Rick Helfenbein, American Apparel and Footwear Association CEO, joins Yahoo Finance’s Julie Hyman and Adam Shapiro, Cornell Capital’s Ann Berry and Cumberland Advisors Chairman David Kotok to talk about the latest trade headlines.

“The tariff wars create winners and losers. You just hear from losers. They’re worried. With good reason. There are no tariffs on the healthcare sector. You can’t name them. It’s 18% of our GDP. In our portfolios, we’re overweight in the healthcare sector. Why? Do we want this tariff war? No. But as a portfolio manager and investment advisor, you have to pick and choose. And tariff wars by definition pick winners and losers and they have unintended consequences. And we’re just seeing the unintended consequences revealed now,” says David R. Kotok.

How can I possible do that for a client? So if I won’t do that with my money I’m not going to do it for a client,” says David R. Kotok.

John Mousseau talks China, Tariffs, & the Trade War

Sarasota financial advisor: Don’t panic over trade tariffs!

Sarasota financial advisor: Don’t panic over trade tariffs!

By Ray Collins | May 15, 2019

John Mousseau says it is important not to get caught up in concerns about a trade tariff war with China.

“If you’re sitting there and you read just the headlines, it looks like a cannon ball shot across the bow of the ship. In essence what it is, is just a shot in a longer term negotiation. I think it was long overdue to negotiate with some trading partners. The U.S. — in terms of being a world partner — has given up more than it has gotten in the last few years,” Mousseau said.

Mousseau said neither the U.S. or China wants a full-scale trade war.
