Kyle Bass is no stranger to underhanded economic techniques. Consider Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, president of Argentina. This woman has defaulted Argentina’s economy not once but twice in only a matter of thirteen years. She’s been labeled a socialistic despot by some, yet Kyle Bass routinely supports her decisions. That’s very telling, from a financial angle.
Then there’s the Coalition for Affordable Drugs, a group Kyle Bass uses to undercut big-ticket pharmaceuticals, forcing them into stock declination he capitalizes on via short-sell. This cuts the pharmaceuticals’ profit, forcing them to cut departments like research and development, curtailing future medical breakthroughs.
Today, UsefulStooges reports that Kyle Bass has roughly a billion dollars tied up in the Chinese economy. Well, not specifically in the economy, as in: not “inside” it. Bass’ assets are tied up in a ring of investments against the Chinese economy. He thinks their poor investment and credit choices will yield collapse within three years, though he has publicly stated there is a forty to fifty percent chance said collapse will hit in 2016. Bass has been predicting things of this ilk against China since the fourth quarter of 2015, but as yet whether his predictions are in vain remains to be seen.
There is the matter of China’s bond market, which has slowed down so much Bass is calling it frozen. China’s bond market is worth three trillion dollars, and so its lack of mobility does definitely indicate a possible declination of Chinese economic value. But as yet this is not certain.
Bass has predicted that when China’s credit bubble bursts, it will force the economy to devalue its currency, and will diminish the US economy some twenty percent. Statistics like that are the kind to scare investors out of China. How could American money being immediately rescinded under a devaluation supposition help China’s economy? Wouldn’t it rather ease it into decline? Kyle Bass may not need all American and global investors to withdraw their investiture; only a few percentage points would probably be necessary to help tip things in his favor. Is that what he’s doing?
By now, shea butter has made its quiet mark on the world of beauty and fashion as one of the highest-quality products to make your skin feel healthy and young again, and there are a couple of reasons for this. First, it’s made with shea nuts, and these have oils in them that retain healing properties, and second, it’s got Vitamins A and E in it.
These butters, made from shea nuts, are pure, and like no other skin products, they’re able to make your skin feel like its old self again. Shea butter is produced without chemicals, for this would ruin the natural effect of the product on your skin, and it would not retain the same healing properties this way.
For the best shea butter you can find, check out EuGenia Shea. EuGenia is Naa-Sakle Akuete’s mother, and her vision for shea butter is unparalleled in Ghana, where, now, the butter is produced through sustainable cooperatives of young Ghanian women.

The best one can hope for is EuGenia Shea, and the conditions of the women who make the shea butter include above-average wages and high-class training. And EuGenia Shea comes in different fragrances (all natural, of course) and has the healing qualities of just that shea butter that you’ve been hearing about.

The rise of the Goettl Air Conditioning company to a position of power in Arizona and Nevada has been completed on the back of the hard work of new owner Ken Goodrich and his dedicated staff. Goodrich purchased the historic company that has been in business for over 75 years in 2012, when the company looked as though it would be forced to fight for its survival after a series of managerial mistakes damaged the brand; Goodrich has worked hard to make sure Goettl has been returned to a position as close to its historic height as it is possible to achieve in just a few short years.
Ken Goodrich has always felt a certain affinity to the Goettl brand after he spent much of his childhood working on air conditioning units created for the brand with his father. Goodrich has seen his stock rise through a number of business interests, but decided to spend as much time as possible working on the return to success of Goettl because of his personal link to the brand.
Not only does Goodrich want to create a respected company from the ashes of the former Goettl brand, but he would also like to do so by creating a team of dedicated air conditioning professionals trained in his home state of Nevada. The Goettl company now provides scholarships and sponsorship through the College of Southern Nevada in a bid to create a workforce based in the region for the long term.
Ken Goodrich always aimed to bring Goettl back to Nevada, but often found this difficult after the previous owners of the brand had removed themselves from the state for professional reasons. Goodrich has taken a different approach than he did to many of his other business ventures, including bowing to Better Business Bureau pressure to rename the brand Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning Repairmen; this name was chosen in a bid to sever the links with the previous ownership that had seen the reputations of the brand suffer in recent times.
Goettl’s dedicated team of air conditioning professionals have been seeking a change in fortune after a series of procedure changes were brought into place, which include Ken Goodrich giving his personal seal of approval for each job completed via email.

Recently, Doe Deere was interviewed in an online article on Galore.com. The article says that Self-Made Magazine rated her as one of the top inspiring female entrepreneurs, thanks to creating her Lime Crime makeup brand. Reporter Stephanie Janetos sat down with Deere to dish about her brand and how it all started.
Doe says that she was always into art as a child in Russia. Not only did she enjoy paint and colored pencils, but she also had fun dressing up and getting into her mother’s makeup, says the article. She says she is having more fun than she could imagine and alludes to other things being developed in her world of dazzling color.
Her first makeup memory was helping her friends dress up in witchy costumes. Nine-year- old Deere wanted their faces to look dramatic too, so she got into her mother’s makeup and gave them all a burst of magical colors, says the article. Deere explains that she experimented with dramatic makeup well into her 20s. Her online experimentation led to her developing makeup in 2008.
She got her start designing original clothing for her eBay store back in 2004, says the article. Deere says that she wanted to keep up with the online trend of silly names, so she chose her favorite color (lime) and a word that rhymed with it (crime). Now, notes Deere, the name represents a revolution in color and breaking all the fashion rules. Looking back, Deere says she may have chosen a more versatile name; however, Lime Crime is fun and very easy to Google, she says. So, the name sticks.
Deere’s Lime Crime is internet-based and she says how much she appreciates getting feedback immediately on social media. It represents the strong connection Lime Crime has with her customers, says the article. She calls her customers “unicorns” because of their uniqueness and bravery. People who wear her makeup love color and defy expectations, she says.
When the interviewer asked her about the women who inspired her, she mentioned famous people such as Dita von Teese and ladies on Instagram such as Stella Rose and Elena. Deere says it was surreal seeing her picture on the cover of Self-Made magazine. She admires entrepreneurs such as Arianna Huffington and Suze Orman. Doe Deere says that she hopes to be a role model for other women who want to be entrepreneurs. Read more on ILoveLimeCrime.com, and check out pictures of what Doe has cooked up on their Tumblr page.
One of the most successful hedge fund managers in the history of the stock market has ended his hiatus and started to trade again. George Soros, owner of the 2nd largest hedge fund in America has ended his long hiatus to begin trading again. Some investors might see that as a good thing. It actually could be a bad sign for the coming months on the market. Soros has a history of both shorting investments he thinks are going to fail and making large investment moves when he thinks a huge market downturn is coming up. This looks to be just one of those cases thanks to Soros’ opinions on the future of the Chinese economy and the effects of the Brexit vote.
Soros’ company, Soros Management LLC, manages a $30 billion hedge fund for the 85-year-old investor and members of his family. George Soros made his first large trades in years last week when he took many of his stock holdings and placed them in gold and gold mining companies. Putting money in gold when they think the market is going to shift in a negative way is a common practice by shrewd investors. Gold has also been up almost 20% so far in 2016. Soros is definitely looking to capitalize on what he thinks will be an upcoming downturn in the market. The last time he made a trade like this was in 2007 during the sub-prime mortgage crisis. He made $1 billion during that period. His first famous trade was betting against the British pound in 1992. That trade also made him around $1 billion. He has made a career out of predicting huge market shifts.
A Bearish George Soros Is Trading Again
Billionaire Investor George Soros Sees Economic Trouble Ahead
Soros has been focusing on other things in recent years. This mostly includes politics and philanthropy. He is a staunch liberal and has been known to fund many left-wing charitable organizations. He is also a huge supporter of Hillary Clinton. Soros has helped raise money for the democratic presidential nominee’s Super PAC and has worked on her behalf for years. He has also been known to donate to many other democratic politicians during their campaigns.
One the biggest reasons Soros chose to make these trades is the Chinese economy. Their lack of foreign holdings and lack of a transparent government when it comes to regulations leads Soros to believe that their economy is due for a collapse. He thinks that this could have a huge negative effect on the rest of the world’s markets. This is also true for the Brexit vote. Soros has a long history betting against the British pound and thinks that this recent vote will bring on problems for their economy in the coming months. George Soros has a long history of being right in about these kinds of situations. Let’s hope he’s wrong this time.

Employees from every station in life have found the courage to report violations regarding securities to the SEC. These workers have protection now because of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which went into effect in 2010. This act provides significant protections for whistle-blowers, as well as offering possible financial incentives, for accurate information. These employees are able to report possible issues of the federal securities laws to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
This important legislation led the distinguished firm of Labaton Sucharow to be the first law firm in the United States to design a firm that was focused solely on the protection and advocacy for SEC whistle-blowers. Led by Jordan A. Thomas, the former Assistant Director and Chief Litigation Counsel for the Enforcement Division of the SEC, this group is well versed in the nuances of the law. The groups is comprised of forensic accountants, analysts, investigators and former state and federal law enforcement agents. As an added benefit, Jordan A. Thomas who is lead counsel played a major role in establishing the Whistle-blower Program.
The program requires the Securities Commission to compensate whistle-blowers with 10-30% of the money recovered as a result of their information, or if penalties are more than one million dollars. The Dodd-Frank Act also protects employees with job security if they report irregularities to the SEC. Employees cannot be penalized or have their job threatened as a result of reporting violations.One of the most important provisions of this Act is the ability for the employer to report issues anonymously if an attorney represents them.
If you would like more information about the Whistle-blower Program, you can contact the team of Labaton Sucharow by telephone or fax found on their website: [email protected] You can request a case evaluation at no charge. Any meeting you have with the firm is strictly confidential with attorney-client protection. You are not required to divulge any personal information (although it is recommended). Translators are available upon request.
If you find yourself in a difficult situation regarding violations pursuant to the SEC, don’t fight the system alone. Labaton Sucharow has the experience and knowledge to guide you through the process. You will be protected and compensated for valid reporting.

After seeing the WEN by Chaz Dean YouTube ads showing how the hair products can turn ordinary hair into luxurious locks, Emily McClure of Bustle magazine decided to discover what the hype was about for herself by completing a trial of the hair products and reporting back to the Bustle audience.
Emily started with the Wen Cleansing Conditioner on the first day of the trial. She noted that after a day of traveling, her hair was greasy and difficult to manage, but she was still reluctant to apply the full 16-24 pumps of conditioner recommended on the bottle. However, after washing and drying her hair, she found it to be shinier and with more volume than before, in addition to the fact that she seemed to shed less hair in the shower. A shower the next day quickly rejuvenated her hair again as well.
The third day went even better; after washing and using the conditioner again, Emily found that her hair was shiny and felt great. She even used some of her normal styling products, and at the end of the day her hair was still healthy-looking and fully of shine. By the sixth day of her trial, Emily found that her routine had improved her results even more. By showering with WEN by Chaz Dean in the morning, she found she had full, luxurious hair all day long, despite any daily trials. She reported that her friends even commented on how great and shiny her hair looked while she was using the product.
The WEN by Chaz Dean products are perfect for on-the-go women who still care about looking great. They are an all-in-one product that replaces shampoo, conditioner, and styling gels. The extensive line of products means that there is a perfect formula for any hair type. Wen is available online via Amazon and local beauty product stores nationwide.
