  • Watch China for the next economic trigger

    For my male readers out there, remember back to your teens and 20s when one of the primary goals was getting a date and finding a girlfriend? Oh come on! You can admit it.  Well imagine how it would have complicated matters if no woman would give you a second thought if you didn’t own property. No, not that old beat up car you drove and sometimes slept in. I mean real property, as in a house.

  • Nick Massey THE ASTUTE INVESTOR: Watch China for the next economic trigger

    For my male readers out there, remember back to your teens and 20s when one of the primary goals was getting a date and finding a girlfriend? Oh come on! You can admit it.  Well imagine how it would have complicated matters if no woman would give you a second thought if you didn’t own property. No, not that old beat up car you drove and sometimes slept in. I mean real property, as in a house.
    Well, that’s how life is if you are a young man in China. No property, no girlfriend, no wife. This is the consequence of China’s one child policy. If parents could only have one child, they went to extraordinary measures to make sure it was a boy. Because of that, young men now significantly outnumber young women — as many as 30 million more.

  • Guild, Tom.jpg Guild: Ruling skews political process toward rich

    EDITOR’S NOTE: This is one in a series of stories about candidates seeking the 5th District Congressional seat. Other candidates who have announced plans to file for the office April 9-11 are Corporation Commissioner Patrice Douglas, Sen. Clark Jolley, Rep. Mike Turner, Rep. Shane Jett and Harvey Sparks on the GOP side. Other Democrats who announced for the seat are state Sen. Al McAffrey, Keith Davenport and Marilyn Rainwater.

    Congressional 5th District candidate Tom Guild said last week’s Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance will skew politics in support of the super-wealthy and weaken the voices of millions of Americans. The ruling poses a danger to American democracy, he said.
    Last week’s 5-4 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court removed a restriction that excluded individuals from contributing to more than one federal candidate during a two-year election cycle. This ruling did not change any individual’s base contribution limit of giving no more than $2,600 per individual candidate during a primary or general election.
