Trump trips up as he trashes Obamacare

“Obamacare is just blowing up,” Trump said. That’s because people who get insurance through their jobs don’t have Obamacare. And if they do get such insurance, they wouldn’t be having problems with Obamacare. On the other hand, if Trump’s workers don’t get health care from their jobs — despite him claiming that he has provided them with health coverage — then many of them would have to buy Obamacare individual health plans.

Trump trips up as he trashes Obamacare

“Obamacare is just blowing up,” Trump said.

The claim, during an event at his Doral resort in Florida, set off an instant firestorm on Twitter

People noted that Trump’s claim suggests that either his workers don’t get health-care coverage from his companies — or that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he blames Obamacare.

That’s because people who get insurance through their jobs don’t have Obamacare. And if they do get such insurance, they wouldn’t be having problems with Obamacare.

On the other hand, if Trump’s workers don’t get health care from their jobs — despite him claiming that he has provided them with health coverage — then many of them would have to buy Obamacare individual health plans.

In that case, they might have problems with Obamacare. But it then would raise the question of why Trump isn’t giving them insurance, even after he said he did.

Why Wall Street titan Steve Schwarzman invested $100 million in US-China relations

The rhetoric of today’s political world has caught the attention of many on Wall Street — perhaps no one more so than Blackstone’s billionaire CEO Steve Schwarzman. Unlike many of his banking peers, though, taxes aren’t top of his mind. “[W]ith populism, no matter who you attack, your own circumstance doesn’t really change, so you keep looking for new targets,” Schwarzman tells CNBC. “My instinct was at some point different countries in the world were going to find China.” The animosity, which t

Why Wall Street titan Steve Schwarzman invested $100 million in US-China relations

The rhetoric of today’s political world has caught the attention of many on Wall Street — perhaps no one more so than Blackstone’s billionaire CEO Steve Schwarzman.

Unlike many of his banking peers, though, taxes aren’t top of his mind. Instead, what has alarmed him for the better part of the last decade has been what he sees as a troubling rise of populism in the U.S. and around the world.

“[W]ith populism, no matter who you attack, your own circumstance doesn’t really change, so you keep looking for new targets,” Schwarzman tells CNBC. “My instinct was at some point different countries in the world were going to find China.”

President Donald Trump spent much of his campaign targeting China. The animosity, which the Wall Street titan saw fueling the possibility of a U.S.-China war, led him to double down on his new immersive scholarship program, Schwarzman Scholars, which he funded with a $100 million donation.

Harry Potter and the $25 billion franchise

Harry Potter and the $25 billion franchise

In anticipation of the latest film in the Harry Potter franchise, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the full lineup of Harry Potter will be returning to theaters for a week beginning on Thursday.

Time Warner is looking to further cash in on an eight-film franchise that has already earned more than $7 billion in box office revenue since 2001. Scholastic, which sold more than 160 million copies of the seven Harry Potter novels in the U.S., also published the screenplay for the film. At $24.99 for the hardcover, that adds to the nearly $8 billion in book sales that have already been wrung out of the series.

As in the Star Wars franchise, the value of toy sales shouldn’t be underestimated. Hasbro and especially Mattel have both made money on Potter games and toys, and total sales so far are estimated at over $7 billion. All told, the total value of the franchise so far has been around $25 billion.
