  • California Poverty Plan Offers a Wealth of Bad Ideas

    https://reason.com/archives/2016/01/08/california-poverty-plan-offers-a-wealth As state legislators in California return to the Capitol in January, there's little question the issue of poverty will be high on the agenda. Legislative Democrats have been dismayed that the governor held the line on new social-welfare spending last session and are eager to step up public funding for new and existing programs. And news reports suggest a major new anti-poverty initiative, backed by some charitable organizations, already is garnering serious donations. Expect poverty to be "big" this year. Even legislative Republicans haven't resisted too much. They've generally been OK with new spending proposals—provided they're funded without raising taxes.

Speaking with REIT.com during The Real Estate Roundtable's fall meeting, Lieber said sovereign wealth funds from abroad are interested in investing on both the debt and asset sides. "We see some of the sovereign wealth fund players coming in on the debt side, wanting to be a little more senior in the capital stack," he said. "But they're also looking in the major markets for the major assets and the stability of those returns and trying to buy at a particularly attractive price." Lieber noted that some international...

Among the peers Johnson interviews are: Josiah Hornblower, heir to the Vanderbilt and Whitney fortunes; S.I. Newhouse IV, of the Conde Nast Newhouses; Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump; and Georgianna Bloomberg, daughter of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

    A hedge fund is an investment fund that pools capital from a limited number of accredited individual or institutional investors and invests in a variety of assets, often with complex portfolio construction and risk management techniques.[1] It is administered by a professional management firm, and often structured as a limited partnership, limited liability company, or similar vehicle.[2][3] Hedge funds are generally distinct from mutual funds as their use of leverage is not capped by regulators and distinct from private equity funds as the majority of hedge funds invest in relatively liquid assets.[4][5] The name "hedge fund" originated from the paired long and short positions that the first of these funds used to hedge market risk. Over time, the types and nature of the hedging concepts...

Legislative Democrats have been dismayed that the governor held the line on new social-welfare spending last session and are eager to step up public funding for new and existing programs. And news reports suggest a major new anti-poverty initiative, backed by some charitable organizations, already is garnering serious donations. Expect poverty to be "big" this year. Even legislative Republicans haven't resisted too much. They've generally been OK with new spending proposals—provided they're funded without raising taxes. We'll have to wait and see any specifics from legislators, but we already know the details of the so-called "Lifting Children and Families Out of Poverty Act." It's likely to spark a spirited debate during the November 2016 election season given the size of the tax increase it would impose on property owners. That initiative is one of several possible tax-hike intiatives on the ballot, and proponents appear ready to start collecting signatures. It would impose what supporters call "a sensible and fair surcharge on properties with values of over $3 million" that keeps "all Proposition 13 property tax protections against reassessments … in place." As the official state summary explains, "Surcharge based on a sliding scale ranging from three-tenths of one percent for real property assessed at $3 million to eight-tenths of one percent for real property assessed at $10 million or more." The resulting cash flow—between $6 billion and $7 billion a year, based on a Legislative Analyst's Office estimate—would fund anti-poverty programs. The money would be deposited in a new state fund. As the LAO explains, the initiative would identify high-poverty areas as "California Promise Zones" and earmark funds for home-visitation and prenatal services, job training tax credits, a personal income tax credit for low-income workers, and funding for the existing CalWORKS aid program and the California Earned Income Tax Credit.

The lifestyles of the planet’s wealthiest kids may be ridiculous, but we hold a special fascination for those whose tastes and reckless spending are so gross as to seem unreal. TomoNews presents to 100% true stories about how 1%-er kids spend their treasure. FULL VIDEO of Dan Bilzerian’s girl throw: http://bit.ly/1JqMsr8 1. These sons and daughters of ridiculously wealthy tycoons act like jerks, do not accept that the law applies to them and do stupid things like post pictures of them burning cash or buying watches for their dog. 2. A viral video released on LiveLeak shows millionaire playboy poker player Dan Bilzerian throw a naked 18-year-old into his pool. The woman, Janice Griffith, hit her foot on the side of the pool, breaking it and leaving her considering legal action. 3. Control your envy! A blog which presents luxury porn for the 1% brings you images of the summer vacations enjoyed by kids of the global elite. 4. Fast cars, big houses, lavish lifestyles, beautiful people. This is the Instagram account called “The Rich Kids of Tehran,” and its goal is to prove that despite living in what the we’d think is one of the most heavily repressed societies in the world, these Iranians are swagging it up like your favorite rapper and athlete had an iced-out, gold-plated love-child. 5. Breanna Youn, who enjoys expensive trinkets gifted to her by “fans,” is probably the best-known girl in the Middle East. And she has her mother to thank. Her social media savvy has helped Breanna amass 1.1 million followers on Instagram. 6. The privileged son of a leading Taiwanese business figure is about to spend the next three decades in the slammer for using drugs to rape more than a dozen women. 7. Expensive car crash in Beijing blamed on everything from corrupt officials to The Fast and The Furious franchise. 8. The annual Hainan Rendez-Vous, a leading luxury fair held in southern China, is rumored to be serve a secondary function for its well-heeled patrons, that of a drug-fueled orgy fest. 9. The owner of a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta in Dubai tried to race his car on the highway, but ran into a wall instead. 10. The three young players were in Bangkok on an end-of-season tour to promote Leicester City Football Club in Thailand. And what did they do? They scored a trio of prostitutes and and racially abused them while filming a hotel room orgy. 11. Aleksandr Politukha walked out on his wife Alena without a word after 10 years of marriage. That is some brutal old-school-style pimp game. 12. Prince Andrew has always been a thorn in the side of the Royal Family with his shady business dealings and messy divorce; but these charges are a lot more serious. 13. The Taiwanese man used the start-up capital from his businessman dad to fund a business that saw 30 prostitutes sell their bodies as well as marijuana and ketamine. 14. These two start playing real life bumper cars with their BMW and Mercedes Benz, as well as dancing around in circles. 15. Ethan Couch and his mother Tonya were detained by authorities in the Pacific coast resort of Puerto Vallarta when a phone call for a pizza delivery tipped off authorities to their whereabouts.

http://www.nomadcapitalist.com 25% of six-figure earners in the US don't have enough money to cover a basic emergency. Andrew from Nomad Capitalist explains why high taxes are largely to blame, and why "water seeks its own level". He also shares a story of a guy from California who earned $200K but was basically BROKE, and how Andrew helped him legally save $85K a year by moving overseas... money he could put into his emergency fund and investments. ----- ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST Andrew Henderson travels to nearly 30 countries every year to stay up to date on the latest legal strategies for entrepreneurs and investors to pay less tax, grow their money faster, and build their personal freedom. Andrew started Nomad Capitalist to help people like you follow his five magic words: "go where you're treated best". He has personally started foreign companies, opened offshore bank accounts, and obtained multiple second passports. He also learned the hard way that perpetual information seeking is often the biggest barrier to getting the results you want. Many entrepreneurs spend months and even years constantly researching how to pay less in tax or live overseas, but are afraid to make the jump. As a result, they get stuck and keep paying a fortune in taxes and never get the lifestyle they deserve. Nomad Capitalist's Youtube channel is based on Andrew's vision that focusing on the end result, rather than the latest shiny object, is the best way to actually obtain the benefits of the Nomad Capitalist lifestyle.

http://www.reit.com Sovereign wealth funds are currently exploring the commercial real estate markets in the United States for investment opportunities that offer value and stability, according to Bob Lieber, executive managing director for Island Capital Group LLC. Speaking with REIT.com during The Real Estate Roundtable's fall meeting, Lieber said sovereign wealth funds from abroad are interested in investing on both the debt and asset sides. "We see some of the sovereign wealth fund players coming in on the debt side, wanting to be a little more senior in the capital stack," he said. "But they're also looking in the major markets for the major assets and the stability of those returns and trying to buy at a particularly attractive price." Lieber noted that some international investors are trying to avoid triggering tax liabilities under the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA). In general, Lieber said sectors with "higher resiliency" are most attractive in the current market environment. He singled out the apartment sector, in particular. "When you look at the multifamily space, the needy renters, the b-quality multifamilies—I think we see pretty high resiliency for demand around those types of assets and a relative degree of interest in trying to buy those assets, because you do have that projected stability and the underpinnings that are going to be generated from the cash flows on those assets," Lieber said. In terms of specific regions within the U.S., Lieber noted that "24-7 markets," including New York and San Francisco, are drawing the most interest from investors at present. Other regions of note lie on the East Coast, according to Lieber, such as the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. The West Coast does have some attractive opportunities in California, Oregon and Washington, as does the Texas market, Lieber said. On the other hand, some of the locales thought to have crashed in the wake of the housing crisis are struggling, according to Lieber. Those include Las Vegas and Phoenix. "Today, there's so much overbuilding that exists in those markets and such high vacancy that I think it makes those markets are particularly challenging," Lieber said. By Allen Kenney

A hedge fund is an investment fund that pools capital from a limited number of accredited individual or institutional investors and invests in a variety of assets, often with complex portfolio construction and risk management techniques.[1] It is administered by a professional management firm, and often structured as a limited partnership, limited liability company, or similar vehicle.[2][3] Hedge funds are generally distinct from mutual funds as their use of leverage is not capped by regulators and distinct from private equity funds as the majority of hedge funds invest in relatively liquid assets.[4][5] The name "hedge fund" originated from the paired long and short positions that the first of these funds used to hedge market risk. Over time, the types and nature of the hedging concepts expanded, as did the different types of investment vehicles. Today, hedge funds engage in a diverse range of markets and strategies and employ a wide variety of financial instruments and risk management techniques.[3] Hedge funds are made available only to certain accredited investors and cannot be offered or sold to the general public.[1] As such, they generally avoid direct regulatory oversight, bypass licensing requirements applicable to investment companies, and operate with greater flexibility than mutual funds and other investment funds.[6] However, regulations passed in the United States and Europe after the financial crisis of 2007–08 were intended to increase government oversight of hedge funds and eliminate certain regulatory gaps.[7] While hedge funds have existed for many decades, and become increasingly popular, growing to be one of the world's largest asset management classes by 2014,[8] according to a report by Hedge Fund Research, published in October 2015, hedge fund industry assets shrank "by $95 billion to 2.87 trillion in the third quarter, making this their worst year since 2008.[9] One of the best performing hedge funds in 2014 — William Ackman's Pershing Square Holdings portfolio which had roughly $20 billion earlier in 2015 — declined by 12.6 percent by October to $16.5 billion in assets.[9] Hedge funds are most often open-ended and allow additions or withdrawals by their investors (generally on a monthly or quarterly basis).[1] A hedge fund's value is calculated as a share of the fund's net asset value, meaning that increases and decreases in the value of the fund's investment assets (and fund expenses) are directly reflected in the amount an investor can later withdraw. In June 2015 Forbes listed George Soros of Quantum Group of Funds, Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates - the world's largest hedge fund firm in 2015 with US$155 billion assets under management[33] compared to US$122 billion under assets in 2011,[34][35]Steven A. Cohen of Point72 Asset Management - formerly known as S.A.C. Capital Advisors,[36][37][38] John Paulson of Paulson & Co. whose hedge funds as of December 2015 had $19 billion assets under management, compared to $18 billion in September 2013 and $36 billion in early 2011.[39] David Tepper of Appaloosa Management, Paul Tudor Jones II of Tudor Investment Corporation, Daniel Och of Och-Ziff Capital Management Group [40][41] with more than $40 billion in assets under management in 2013,[42][43] Israel Englander of Millennium Management, Leon G. Cooperman of Omega Advisors,[44] Michael Platt of BlueCrest Capital Management (UK) Europe’s third-biggest hedge-fund firm,[45] Stanley Druckenmiller, Daniel Loeb of Third Point LLC with a portfolio worth $14 billion.,[46] James Dinan of York Capital Management,[47] Stephen Mandel Jr. of Lone Pine Capital with $26.7 billion under management at end June 2015,[48] Larry Robbins of Glenview Capital Management with approximately $9.2 billion of assets under management as of July 2014,[49] Glenn Dubin of Highbridge Capital Management,[50][51][52] Paul Singer of Elliott Management Corporation, an activist hedge fund with more than US$23 billion in assets under management in 2013,[53][54] and a portfolio worth $8,124,567,000 as of the first quarter of 2015,[55][56] ,[57] Michael Hintze of CQS with $14.4 billion of assets under management as of June 2015,[58] and David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital, as the top twenty billionaire hedge fund managers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedge_fund
