Watch Guide: Speaker Ryan Talks Tax Reform at Southwest Airlines

Coming up in a little bit, Speaker Ryan will be talking about tax reform with employees at Southwest Airlines's headquarters in Dallas, TX. The carrier is one of hundreds of companies that have announced employee bonuses since teTax Cuts and Jobs Act became law. Ryan will be joined today by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), one of the law’s chief architects. You’ll be able to watch the employee forum at 4:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. CT live on Speaker.gov. While you wait for the event to start, here are a few things to check out: This video or these clips from Speaker Ryan’s recent visit to Home Depot, where he talked about the benefits tax reform is delivering directly to American workers, from bigger paychecks and bonuses to an expanded child tax credit. This story of how a Maryland manufacturer that Speaker Ryan visited in the run-up to tax reform recently announced bonuses for its employees. Based in Kent County, this is a company with a 102-year history and more than 1,000 employees across 14 states. This map showing that tax reform has helped lower utility prices for customers in 41 states (and counting.) OK, that was technically four things, but tax reform has brought a lot of good news for America’s workers, and optimism abounds. Just a couple of items from last week: “Consumer sentiment in March reached the highest level since 2004. . . The advance in confidence underscores buoyant consumer sentiment following tax cuts and one-time bonuses that boosted many Americans’ take-home pay.” (Bloomberg) “The rate of layoffs in the U.S. fell again in late March and dropped to the lowest level since 1973. . . . The labor market is so strong that it’s even drawing back in people who’ve been out of the workforce for years. And it doesn’t show any sign of letting up.” (MarketWatch) So be sure to tune in to speaker.gov/live at 4:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. CT as Speaker Ryan keeps this conversation going and fields questions from Southwest employees.

Долг США растет быстрее экономики. На что тратят? ( Вести Экономика )

В минувшую пятницу госдолг США преодолел еще одну знаковую величину - $21 трлн. Это не просто огромная цифра: долг страны больше, чем вся ее экономика. Но и это далеко не самое главное. Куда важнее то, с какой скоростью он растет. Так, например, за сутки с четверга по пятницу показатель вырос на $73 млрд, и это всего за один день. Чтобы это цифра не казалась абстрактной, достаточно сказать, что она больше, чем капитализация таких крупных компаний, как General Motors, Ford и Southwest Airlines. ......

Амазоновский каток

Amazon полон противоречий. Являясь третьей компанией планеты, он тем не менее уступает по размерам прибыли, например, небольшой авиалинии Southwest Airlines Co., которая на 426 месте по капитализации. Amazon считается высокотехнологичной компанией и очень широко использует в своей деятельности роботизацию и автоматизацию, но при этом «ютится» на складах, в магазинах и других не очень соответствующих его статусу помещениях и зданиях.

At $21 Trillion, The National Debt Is Growing 36% Faster Than The US Economy

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com, Well, it happened again. On Friday afternoon, the national debt of the United States hit another major milestone, soaring past $21 trillion for the first time ever. Clearly that is an enormous number… it’s actually larger than the size of the entire US economy, which is pretty incredible. But what’s always been the more important story about America’s pile of debt is how rapidly it’s growing. For example, in the span of a SINGLE DAY, from Thursday to Friday, the national debt grew by $73 BILLION. In a day. To put that number in context, $73 billion is larger than the size of most major companies like General Motors, Ford, and Southwest Airlines. And in the month of February alone, the national debt grew by an astounding $215 billion. $215 billion is larger than the GDP of New Zealand. Greece. Oregon. More than twice the size of the GDP of New Mexico. Just in a single month. Most disturbingly, the national debt has grown by more than $1 TRILLION… just in the last SIX MONTHS. I’m scratching my head right now wondering– where did they spend all that money? Was there a major economic crisis, wave of bank failures, or severe depression that required massive fiscal stimulus? Nope. It was just business as usual. Even better, the economy was supposedly doing totally awesome over the last six months. And yet, even with all that positivity, the government still managed to rack up an extra trillion dollars in debt. Amazing. One important point to make is that debt growth is VASTLY outpacing GDP growth. And this is critical to understand. Last year, for example, the US economy grew by 2.5% in ‘real’ terms, i.e. stripping out inflation. Even if you include inflation in the calculation, the size of the US economy increased by 4.4%. Yet the national debt grew by 6%. Now that might not seem like a big difference. But it is. On a proportional basis, the national debt expanded 36% faster than the US economy (even if you include inflation). Over the course of several years, that effect compounds into something that’s quite nasty. At the end of 2008, for example, the size of the US economy was $14.5 trillion. A decade later, the size of the economy is $19.7 trillion, 36% greater. Yet over the past ten years, the national debt has grown from $9.4 trillion to over $21 trillion– a growth rate of 123%! It’s really, really hard to pretend that this is good news. But that doesn’t stop people from trying. We’re constantly being told the same old nonsense that “the debt doesn’t matter” because we owe it to ourselves. And, sure, it’s true that the US government owes a lot of this money to various institutions across America. Like Social Security. Or the US banking system. Or the Federal Reserve. I find it difficult to see the good news here… as if it would somehow be beneficial to default on (and hence bankrupt) Social Security. Or the US banking system. Or the Federal Reserve. Doing so would cause the most drastic financial cataclysm ever before seen in the United States. So… yeah, the debt does matter. Yet these major milestones are simply yawned off now, as if trillions of dollars in new debt is just par for the course. And that’s pretty sad. Most people are in one of three camps when it comes to the debt. #1: They ignore it altogether, and stick their heads in the sand (or up somewhere else). #2: They acknowledge the debt, but tell themselves fairy tales that it doesn’t matter… or that the government is going to somehow ‘fix’ it. (which is ridiculous given that the government is the one causing the problem to begin with.) #3: They view the situation rationally and understand that, maybe, just maybe, at some point in the future, there might possibly be some consequence to arise from the largest debt pile that has ever been accumulated in the history of the world… and they make sensible preparations just in case.

How Southwest Airlines Keeps The Romance Alive With Its Customers

In 1967, Herb Kelleher had the idea to start an airline. In 1971, Southwest Airlines officially took off (pun intended) with just three planes. By 1973, the airline turned a profit, and for 45 years straight the airline has remained profitable. This year, they’re poised to make it 46 years.
