The Effects of Trump’s Presidency in the Marketing Platform

Tim Armour puts to task his fellow business magnate Mr. Warren Buffet. Warren Buffet has wagered a staggering $1 million that he hopes to use by investing in an S&P 500 passive index fund. By doing so, Warren hopes to get better investment returns as compared to a group of hedge fund managers. However, Tim Armour tends to disagree with this marketing strategy.

According to Tim, Warren Buffet is wrong on his investment strategy because the risks associated with passive index investments are unknown and unpredictable. Tim Armour also believes that though passive index returns are a haven when it comes to retirement, they are not safe when markets crumble down due to inflation. Apart from this, Tim notes that a good number of managed funds tends to do worse than the market share. Tim Armour believes that it will be hard to know which types of funds will be performing better, therefore, making Buffet’s ideology less than appealing.

The dynamic nature of dealing with issues as exhibited by President Trump has sent shockwaves in the market platform. According to Tim Armour, President Trump ideology is likely to promote faster economic growth, higher inflation, and an increase in the level or interest rates.

After the shocking election of Trump as the president of the United States, many market shares plummeted, and the level of asset prices changed dramatically. Tim Armour sees these dramatic changes as being real and advises each investor to believe in the changes and brace themselves for what is to come.

Tim Armour is the current chairman and CEO of Capital Group, a company that deals with asset financing and investment management. Tim became the chief executive officer of the organization in the year 2015 after the untimely death of the then CEO, Mr. James Rothenburg. Tim holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Middlebury College based in Vermont. To know more click here.

George Soros Returns in Style to Political Mainstream

The rise of George Soros as a political juggernaut has been something a long time in the making. Soros is someone who came from nothing and worked his way into becoming one of the wealthiest people on the planet, one of the most giving philanthropists in the world, and one of the foremost progressive activists that the United States has ever seen. Soros has largely been sitting outside of the spotlight of mainstream politics for the past few years but he decided to get right back into it during the 2016 Presidential Election. The reason, according to his political adviser Michael Vachon, was that the stakes were too high and the rhetoric was simply too strong and hostile to ignore.

We can see where George Soros is going by looking at where he came from. George Soros was born and raised in Hungary before he was forced to flee due to the Nazi occupation that nearly ruined the country. Soros would go on to immigrate into London where he would study at the London School of Economics, working two jobs just to make his way through University. While at school Soros would hone in on the philosophies that would define his philanthropic and political endeavors in life. Eventually Soros would sail to America, start up the Soros Hedge Fund, and become a philanthropic and progressive heavyweight along the way. Read this story at about George Soros.

Now, we are in 2016 and the presidential election campaigns are in full swing. Soros saw how disparate the rhetoric was getting between the right and left wing and he knew that he had to jump in and do something about it. George Soros was diametrically opposed to everything that Donald Trump, a trust fund kid focusing on anti-immigrant and anti-labor policies had stood for. So, Soros immediately jumped in and put serious money down in order to back liberal candidates all around the country. Soros would end up donating nearly $25 million along the way, giving up to $7 million to a Pro-Clinton PAC as well as a host of other political action committees that stood for what Soros believed in.

Many people wonder why Soros stayed out of the political spotlight for so long but the answer was simple: he doesn’t believe in big money playing a huge influence in politics, despite being willing to raise money for his own beliefs. An anonymous liberal operative close to Soros said that the man returned to politics in order to “balance the scales” between right wing and left wing giving. Soros also has been known to be extremely close to and fond of Hillary Clinton, calling her a progressive that is open and receptive to other progressives like him whenever he needs to talk to her.

Mike Heiligenstein Offers His Opinion on Improving Transportation on Austin

Mike Heiligenstein gave an interview to the San Antonio Business Journal and answered a few questions about the transportation issues in the region in 2014. He started by providing an explanation of why the State Highway 130 had lower traffic numbers while the Interstate was congested. He said that the first thing that should be done is to move trucks and other cars to the highway. The county would also have to figure out a way to change the travel behavior of people so that they could use the SH 130 more.


Mike was asked to give his opinion on the financial performance of toll roads because of the gas prices and the weakening economy. Heiligenstein said that toll roads were not the perfect solution, but they would be effective when combined with other methods. He stated that they had been able to fund the extension of the 183A from the revenue that they had received and did not have to depend on tax dollars. Heiligenstein also mentioned how they had gained confidence with the investor community in recent times. The bond rates were going up. Many investors had subscribed to their last offering than expected. He added that this was a sign that they were doing great work that would pay off in the long term.


Mike was also asked to offer thoughts on how congestion could be reduced in Eagle Ford Shale. Heiligenstein proposed that they should use toll tags to charge the trucks that used the roads that were maintained by the county. Mike explained that those roads were not made to withstand the weight of the trucks. This was from his experience as a public official. He finished by stating that a financing tool funded by the tax would be of some benefit. This is because many of the counties needed financial assistance to develop and maintain some of the roads.


Mike Heiligenstein is the executive director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. He took up the position in 2003 after serving as a public official for 23 years. He joined CTRMA when it was founded. He has been instrumental in its success. CTRMA has developed major roads in the region including the 183A, the MoPac Express Lanes, and the 290 Toll Expressways under his leadership. He is the president of the International Bridge, Tunnel, and Turnpike Association (IBTTA). Heiligenstein is involved with several transportation committees in Austin including the Texas A & M Transportation Institute.
