    Mergers and acquisitions

    At record highs in 2018.


    Global mergers and acquisitions have already reached $2 trillion in 2018, a record for the value of deals in the period, Thomson Reuters data showed on Tuesday.

    And it's poised to continue.


    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin won a battle inside the Trump administration over trade policy this week after a series of setbacks as he tries to ease economic tensions with China.

    Most of President Donald Trump’s top advisers had decided by Monday to recommend he invoke emergency powers under an obscure 1977 law to block China from acquiring U.S. technology companies and their intellectual property. But by Tuesday evening, Mnuchin had forged an about-face, according to two people familiar with the deliberations.

    Thanks, Stevo.

    I know we have discussed this before, but I still say this trade talk is on purpose to lower the stock market. The average person is out of this game. But a stock market thats all over the place is great not just for mergers and acquisitions but also for all the executives. They are buying back massive amounts of their stock when the stock market has these wild dips. It aids Mergers as well because if a company sees their stock tanking its more likely a target for hostile buyout. I do think this is deliberate. They are making a fortune here and we are actually thinking its a bad thing for the little guy. We barely are a blip on the stock market compared to these behemoths. Its why Wall Street is silent.

    More capitulation to China...


    The wisdom of Wisconsin offering $3B in subsidies to persuade Foxconn to build a display factory in Racine County is being further questioned today.

    It’s been revealed that taxpayers are now coughing up an additional billion dollars in sweeteners not long after it was reported that Foxconn may not be investing the full $10B it promised.

    Critics had already complained that the tax subsidies would cost at least $231k per job created by the plant, before Foxconn’s reported plan to scale back the facility to focus on smaller displays.

    *snip*

    An independent analysis found that the payback time for the state was around 25 years if the full number of jobs was created.

    Wisconsin taxpayers to pay extra $1B for Foxconn plant; on hook for 40% of risk

    Why are we giving Chinese businesses taxpayer money to build shit here? Why can't private investors fund this?

    Because the local senators, reps and governors tout jobs, jobs, jobs...Its why Boston went in the hole offering goodies to get GE to move their HQ there. Now they are having massive layoffs and selling off businesses but the goodies are in effect for 10 years.

    Why the hell aren't they doing this to help American companies expand instead? What happened to "America first"?

    I just don't get what why we're squandering a good economy on stupid shit that isn't going to help us in the long term.
