    What Biden would do about Trump’s China tariffs

Trump has demanded that China even out a lopsided U.S. trade deficit with China and buy more American products. As leverage, Trump has imposed tariffs on Chinese imports that cost U.S. businesses and consumers around $54 billion per year. Trump’s “phase one” trade deal with China from earlier this year was supposed to include a big boost in Chinese purchases of U.S.

    Here's the next big move this summer for the record-setting Nasdaq

    A Biden win might boost markets, not quash them

    Joe Biden wants to raise taxes, eliminate corporate tax breaks and impose new regulations.

    More households paid rent and mortgage payments during the pandemic than expected — but some households, particularly those with children, have struggled to make ends meet during the pandemic.

Insulting to my intelligence

Poorly supported, wildly speculative, fear mongering, clearly biased, and selfish. Tax cuts have produced massive deficits with no growth. This is just a propaganda piece. Yahoo finance is better than this garbage.
