U.S. Money Reserve President Discusses The Loss Of The Penny

The U.S. Money Reserve President Philip Diehl has recently appeared on the CNBC morning show Squawk Box to discuss the best ways of making the U.S. economy profitable again. Diehl was giving his opinion on the latest ideas being discussed to reduce the overall cost of producing coins to be placed into circulation, which saw Diehl giving his opinion that the penny should be removed from circulation in a bid to reduce the costs of production for coin makers. The arguments set forth by the precious metals and coins expert included the savings of more than $100 million per year for the American taxpayer that would be made by eliminating the penny, according to PR Newswire.

Philip Diehl is in a unique position to give a positive insight into the best possible options for making the production of coins profitable again because of the training of the U.S. Money Reserve President. Diehl is a former official within the U.S. federal Government and joins many other former government figures on the staff of the U.S. Money Reserve. The Austin, Texas based company was established by former government officials and precious metals dealers who believed the general public should be given the chance to invest in the best government issued gold, silver, and platinum coins.

The question of how to increase profits within the U.S. economy has come as a major shift has taken place towards digital transactions made using debit and credit cards. In the 21st century only 25 percent of transactions are made with cash, which Philip Diehl believes has reduced the need for specific coins to remain in circulation. The nickel and penny are the two coins under the most threat because of the small profit margin their production provides. Diehl believes the loos of the penny could drive up cash sales as companies look to round down their transactions to the nearest multiple of five.

Artificial Intelligence: More Utilized Than We Think

Artificial Intelligence seems to be on everyone’s tongues these days. In a recent article in the Deccan Herald, by Ashwini Ashokan, the infiltration of AI into our everyday life and, more specifically, into the world of fashion and retail. The article discusses how AI never made a big bang when it came out. It has slowly become integrated in a way that many people miss. Anytime someone asks Siri a question, they are using artificial intelligence. Every time someone uploads a picture to Facebook, artificial intelligence assists in tagging people. And sometimes when individuals are shopping on online retail shops, artificial intelligence will help identify other items that they might like to buy more or in addition to what they are currently looking at.

Online shopping has been a major place where consumers can interact with artificial intelligence. Online retailers started to equip themselves with AI about 10 years again. Amazon was among the first. Amazon used it to suggest other items shoppers might also like. Another AI visual search shopping technology that has also been around for roughly 10 years is image intelligence. Companies like Slyce have developed artificial intelligence technology that will identify a piece of clothing or accessory from a barcode, advertisement or picture and tell the consumer where to find the item or items that are similar.

Slyce was created for the frustrated consumer. There are lots of apps out there that claim to scan barcodes or pictures and identify them, but many times they let users down. Slyce visual search has approached the problem with a three pronged solution. Users can choose whatever works or what they feel most comfortable with. First, users may choose to scan an item if they have access to a coupon or QR code or barcode. Second, users may scan an advertisement and it will be compared to pictures by the retailer. Third, users may take a picture of a piece of clothing or accessory and it will be scanned for its different attributes to find similar products that the retailer might have.

Slyce is headed up by a group of veterans who are guiding this project towards success. They are already partnered with several large companies that are utilizing the new technology that Slyce is bring to the table. The partners include Offerpop, Photon and Purchase Decision Network.

Current Market a Repeat of 2008 Crisis According to Famed Investor George Soros

We are only a few days in to 2016 and it already looks like it will be a rocky year. Famed billionaire investor George Soros is proclaiming that he sees echos of the 2008 crisis in the current market. At an investment event in Sri Lanka recently, Soros mentioned that the extreme debt levels in China, Europe and the US, along with collapsing commodity prices, spelled potential doom for global economy.

According to George Soros and most other investors, the 2008 crisis occurred due to sub-prime debt, over investment in the housing market and too much investment in exotic securitized financial products. Today, the greatest risk is also in bad debt. However, this time the debt is much larger and issue by governments so the risk is much greater.

That is especially true in China. AFter the 2008 crisis, exports to Europe and the US went down dramatically. To boost the economy, the government unleashed a massive amount of lending and fiscal stimulus in to the economy. In fact, the banking system grew to three times the size of the economy whereas the US banking system is one times the economy. At the same time, the growth rate in China is beginning to slow naturally as the population growth slows and incremental technology improvements slow. As a result, it is becoming tougher and tougher to pay off the huge debts that government issued in 2008. Now, new debt growth is slowing and the economy is at a stand still. The stock market already crashed in 2015 and is now crashing again. Unless the government gets a handle on its debt loan, it could spark a contagion around the world.

As debt growth slows around the world and economies put on the breaks, the price of commodities is also collapsing. Many countries that depend on commodities (especially oil and gas) are now have trouble financing their daily operations. Even worse, some of the debt they have issued is in danger.

The countries with the greatest risk of debt default include Venezuela, Zimbabwe and Argentina. However, other much larger countries are showing signs of strains. Brazil contracted 3.5% in 2015 due to the decrease in commodity prices. Also, the fallout from a bribery scandal and massive wasted investment in a major potential oil field by government energy giant Petrobras is giving investors concern about the country’s ability to pay back loans. At a minimum, interest rates are rapidly increasing, causing huge strains in the economy.

Other major oil exporters such as Russia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Norway and Angola have seen massive setbacks in their revenue and are struggling to meet basic needs. These companies may need to issue additional debt to get back on track.

Together, the world is showing increasing strains that Soros warns could lead to another major crisis like 2008. Hopefully, governments can avoid the fallout.

George Soros on the Economy

 

George Soros is one of the most well-known individuals in the world of finance. Over the years, he has made a lot of predictions on the future of the economy. In this latest article by Bloomberg, George Soros says that the world economy has a lot of negative signs. Much like in 2008, there are a lot of weaknesses in the current economic market that are difficult to get through. This has a lot of people worried about the future of the markets as a whole. Over the long term, George Soros has proven to be right a lot more often than he is wrong. Here are several reasons for his latest prediction.

China

There is a lot of weakness coming out of China right now. There are a lot of people who thought that China would continue on an upward trend for the rest of the year. However, there are a lot of data points showing that this is not the case. There have even been times when the Chinese have had to turn off their stock market because it dropped too low. This is concerning for both the Chinese and people who invest in the global markets. Over a long period of time, China is a nation that is essential to the global growth story. If there is a long term slowdown in the country, this could lead to a lot of problems down the road.

Global Debt

Global debt levels are starting to creep back up towards the levels in 2008. At that time, personal debt levels were at their highest in history. There are many people who carry so much debt that it is hard for them to save any money. While this is good for consumer spending in the short term, over the long term this is a major issue. A good economy is fueled by people who have the money to buy and invest in the market and goods that are produced. Carrying a lot of debt is something that prevents prosperity for many people. In addition, many nations around the world continue to borrow money at record levels. Anyone who wants to know how to get out of debt can find information on a variety of sources. George Soros cites this as one of his biggest reasons for being bearish on the new year.

George Soros

There are many people who are concerned with the latest prediction by George Soros. Over the years, he has never been afraid to speak his mind when it comes to the economy. There are many people who invest in the global markets based on what George Soros says and believes. Anyone who is interested in learning more can read the whole article on Bloomberg. This is a big wake up call for many people who invest in the markets. There are also many people wondering aloud if they can survive another economic downturn like the one we had in 2008.
