*Trump: ‘How About Taking Care of American Citizens First?’:
President Trump, tweeting from the G-20 summit in Japan Thursday night, summed up the Democrat debate this way: All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare. How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!
At Thursday night’s debate, in a “show of hands” question, NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked the ten Democrats on the stage: “Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants?” All the presidential hopefuls raised their hands.
*The Seattle Suburb where Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates Both Live is Running out of Money:
Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates are the richest people in the world, worth $119 billion and $107 billion respectively, according to Bloomberg. Amazon is headquartered in Seattle and Microsoft is just outside the city, and both billionaires have homes in the nearby small town of Medina, Washington. With a population of just over 3,000, Medina is the seventh richest zip code in the U.S. with a median home value of $2.77 million, and the town has a median household income of $186,464 in 2017, the most recent data available. (By comparison, the 2017 median household income in the U.S. was $60,336.) Yet Medina is running out of money — and the irony is lost on no one.
*80% of the Stock Market is Now
It’s no secret that machines are taking up a bigger and bigger share of investing, but the extent of their influence is approaching shocking proportions. It is as high as 80%, according to one major investing firm. Passive investments such as index funds and exchange-traded funds control about 60% of the equity assets, while quantitative funds, those which rely on trend-following models instead of fundamental research from humans, now account for 20% of the market share, according to estimates from J.P. Morgan.
This means so much of stock trading is now in the hands of automated buyers and sellers that the market is increasingly sensitive to headlines and more prone to sharp price swings, many notable investors believe. Omega Advisors founder Leon Cooperman previously said computer trading is creating a “Wild West” with the markets, calling for an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
*Brexit 3 Years Later: Dire Warnings for UK Economy Have Proved Wrong:
Pollsters had heart palpitations in June 2016 as the people of Great Britain voted to leave the European Union. A dismayed media spouted speculative hysteria about the British economy that spread faster than a fire at a match factory. Three years after the June 23, 2016, referendum, however, the establishment in Westminster remains incapable of admitting it was wrong. The reality is that the uncertainty surrounding Brexit has had little obvious effect on the British economy. Despite doomsday predictions, the British economy since the Brexit vote has not lived down to Brexit opponents’ expectations and has managed to outperform and outrank the other large economies of the European Union. According to The Heritage Foundation’s 2019 Index of Economic Freedom, the United Kingdom has the world’s seventh-freest economy and scored more than 10 points higher than the regional average.
Three economies that have been integral to the European Common Market since its inception, Germany, France, and Italy, by contrast, ranked 24th, 71th, and 80th, respectively. The United Kingdom’s economy grew at an annualized rate of 1.4 percent in the first quarter of 2019. At first blush, that number isn’t particularly impressive, but it quickly becomes commendable when compared with economic performances across the English Channel and parroted economic forecasts. France grew 0.9 percent and Germany grew 0.6 percent in the first quarter, while Italy registered no growth at all. The entire eurozone grew at only 1.1 percent. Despite predictions of gross domestic product losses of up to or greater than 5 percent, the British economy has grown every quarter since the referendum.
Unemployment is below 4 percent, the lowest it’s been since the early 1970s, according to the Office for National Statistics. The unemployment rate in Britain is half the eurozone rate (7.8%), and less than half of Italy’s and France’s at 10.2 percent and 8.8 percent unemployment, respectively. Some 800,000 new jobs have been added since the referendum despite the U.K. Treasury’s predictions of job losses of up to 500,000 after the people voted “leave.”
*California Set to Provide Health Care to Some People Living in U.S. Illegally:
California is set to become the first state to provide government-funded health care to people who are living in the U.S. illegally. State lawmakers agreed to a budget deal Sunday afternoon that will open up its Medicaid program to undocumented low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 25. “California believes that health is a fundamental right,” said State Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Los Angeles Democrat who led the budget negotiations.
Officials have estimated the program will cover around 90,000 people and cost the state around $98 million. The budget agreement must now be approved by the full state legislature. Lawmakers had to enact a budget by midnight on June 15 or risk losing their pay.
