Insight On Business the News Hour

The Business News Headlines 17 March 2021

Yesterday we reported that it was likely the IRS would push back the federal filing date from April 15...and today that happened.  Welcome to the business news headlines for Wednesday the 17th of March...St. Patrick's Day.  Here's what we've got:

  • The IRS change for filing taxes;
  • The Fed will not alter their interest rate;
  • If you share custody can you "double dip"?
  • Stimulus money still flowing to the wrong bank;
  • Will "free money" create a new welfare culture;
  • The Wall Street Report;
  • People are not flocking back to workout.

For the interview it's Dr. Chris Draper, entrepreneur and author of the book "Velocity Economics - The Real American Economy". We'll spend some time talking about what that idea has in common with the American Rescue Plan and what may be the overall benefit healing a host of issues. To hear that conversation, that's really enlightening, click here. 

Boosting the Economy with Velocity

A returning guest is Dr. Chris Draper the managing partner for Troket and the author of Velocity Economics - The Real American Economy. For decades the United States has followed the notion that if you give wealthy people more money they, in turn, will create good paying jobs. For those of you who remember it was called "Trickle Down Economics". Recently President Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan that gets substantial dollars into the hands of consumers. That, says Dr. Draper, is exactly what is needed to springboard our economy. Here is our conversation.

The Multi-National Cemen Tech with CEO Conner Deering

It's amazing what we sometimes stumble on. About two weeks ago we received a press release about an acquisition in the UK by a company based in Central Iowa. That got us to digging a bit and we came face to face with Cemen Tech a manufacturing company that makes something called Volumetric Concrete Trucks. Intrigued we invited CEO Connor Deering in for a conversation. And...wow. Forget about the old style cement trucks you're familiar with...this is something drastically different. And the ecological impact is also a big deal. Meet Connor Deering.
