POCKETBOOK Week Ending Feb.15, 2019
Got Debt? No Problem? - Way back in the last few decades of the last century when I first began selling municipal bonds, one of the roads to financial success for a new salesperson—-according to management—was to get yourself into debt. Big debt. You know, the kind of debt that gets you to buy that new BMW 5 series you’ve always wanted when what you really could afford was a used Toyota. The reasoning behind management’s thinking was that responsible salespeople with debt will work hard to pay off—or down—their debts. And while that really didn’t follow the Minnesota money logic I was raised with, I was in Florida after all and things, as we all have come to learn, can be very different on Florida’s Wall Street.

TrumpBits#31: A High Priced New Year’s Eve
I’m beginning to wonder if The Donald needs money. The Town of Palm Beach has approved some new docks for him to have installed at Mar-a-Lago so guests may arrive by water, that’s gonna be pricey unless someone else, like Mexico, is going to pay for it. Then again, he is getting a tax refund because it appears he overpaid some property taxes. But it’s the cost of attending his annual New Year’s Eve party that has both skyrocketed and has me wondering.
