    Educating and Supporting Credit Card Users

    By Mapa Research 05 Dec 2017

    Supporting and educating credit card users has become an all-important task. Why? In the UK, the Bank of England revealed that from April 2016 – April 2017, consumer credit (which credit cards fall into) had increased by 10.3%. At the same time, the Federal Reserve announced that credit card debts in the US are at $1.027 trillion, the highest since 2008. Whilst consumers are taking on more debt, incomes have largely remained the same. For this reason, it has become even more important that financial providers are doing their part to ensure that consumers are not creating unnecessary debt. Over the past two quarters, Mapa’s Credit Card Monitor has seen the digital support offered to credit card holders, both in the UK and the US, increase in a number of ways.

    PFM tools in mobile banking

    By Mapa Research 05 Dec 2017

    Personal Financial Management (PFM) tools help customers better understand their financial health, what they are spending money on, and trends around their incoming and outgoing cash. Often these tools let customers put money to one side, to help them reach financial goals. Banking providers who prioritize PFM focus on helping customers understand and control their financial situation. While we know that challengers are putting PFM at the heart of their offerings, continually improving the analytics and categorization supplied, incumbent banks have been slower to bring even basic PFM tools to the forefront of their mobile or desktop banking platforms.

    Could Trump Create Mini Economic Recovery That Results in Major Crash in Stock, Bonds & Real Estate?

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 26 Oct 2017

    Some of the smartest people I know believe it is 50% - 50% odds now that this year we will get some sort of tax deal lowering corporate taxes. The odds are lower for anything more. For the record, I still personally doubt that Donald Trump can get anything done requiring legislative action. Read more from Charles Biderman.

    Markets Will Crash Between Now & When Central Banks Stop Printing

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 19 Oct 2017

    Key Question: Can Central Banks Sep Back in to Save Markets? I have been mostly bullish on the US stock market ever since realizing in October 2009 that the US Federal Reserve and other Central Banks’ money printing had eliminated the market downside.  What should be taught in Stock Market 101, particularly to those seeking to be Chartered Financial Analysts, is that all there is in the stock market are shares of stock.  Money flows in and out of the checking accounts of investors and stock market intermediaries.

    Keynesians Driving the Global Economy to Ruin: $1 of Government Spending is not = $1 of After Tax Income

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 06 Oct 2017

    Followers of John Maynard Keynes tend to believe that $1 of government spending is just as good as $1 of after tax income, if not better. The key message of Keynesian economics is when the rate of growth of after tax profits of both industry and individuals declines, then increased government spending is supposed to not only provide a bridge but enhance an overall business recovery.

    Why Corporate Tax is the Worst Tax of All

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 21 Sep 2017

    No Corporate Taxes Could Increase All Collected Income Taxes. Imagine the US having 0% corporate income taxes. First obvious impact would be to dramatically increase business profits and return on equity. US companies would have an obvious cost advantage over every country with a corporate income tax. What better initial and long-term boost to US productivity and competitiveness could there be than eliminating corporate taxes? Read more from Charles Biderman.

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 31 Aug 2017

    Rapid economic growth is just around the corner, say Central Bankers, Wall Street economists and global investors.
