Thread: Trumps tax cut will not help main street

  1. #31


    Bank of America makes record profit after tax cuts

    The quarter is also the first to show how the bank is benefiting from federal tax legislation passed in December that slashes the rate corporations pay on their profits. The bank reported paying $1.47 billion in income taxes, down more than 25 percent from the same quarter last year.

    The allocation tilts decidedly in the favor of executives and shareholders versus workers.

    Some of the big corps threw main street a bone with bonuses. Have to keep the dog happy or it will turn on you

    We know the consumer has been hurting for some time know.......They must be kidding with the statement below..... Many have seen their health care cost rise, Fuel costs rise and other costs of living rise. Wiping out any cut they got plus more .......Again as usual the big corps ( 1%) benefited from the tax cuts not main street.

    Weak consumer spending is seen restraining US growth in the first quarter

    Economists expect growth will accelerate in the second quarter as households start to feel the impact of the Trump administration's $1.5 trillion income tax package on their paychecks. Lower corporate and individual tax rates, as well as increased government spending, will likely lift annual economic growth to the administration's 3 percent target, despite the weak start to the year.

    See post above

    Amazon is straying from Jeff Bezos' vow to 'charge less'

    Amazon is increasing its Prime subscription to $119 a year, an additional $2 billion in revenue.
    But there's no indication that Prime services are getting better.

    On Thursday, Amazon announced it would be raising the price for its Prime subscription to $119 from $99 for customers renewing after June 16. The additional $20 a year would account for an extra $2 billion in revenue for the company, given the 100 million Prime subscribers it recently announced.
