Clean Tax Savings Here

Businesses generally try to get the highest price possible for their products. It’s called “capitalism,” and it generally works to establish “equilibrium prices” between knowledgeable buyers and willing sellers. But every so often, this mechanism breaks down and prices soar, resulting in howls of “price gouging!” from ticked-off customers. This is especially true with pharmaceuticals. In 2015, hedge fund manager Martin Shkrelli made himself the most-hated man in America when he bought Turing Pharmaceuticals and raised the price of the antiparasite Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 per pill. Another example: in 2007, Mylan pharmaceuticals bought rights to distribute the EpiPen,

This is Spinal Tax

In 1984, the documentary filmmaker Marty Di Bergi scored a hit with This is Spinal Tap, a look inside Britain’s loudest band and their 1982 Smell the Glove concert tour. Lead singer David St. Hubbins, lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel, and bassist Derek Smalls, were joined by a series of drummers who died under mysterious circumstances, including spontaneous combustion and a bizarre gardening accident that authorities said was “best left unsolved.” Of course, the whole thing was a spoof. “Marty Di Bergi” was really director Rob Reiner, and the band members were played by actors Michael McKean, Christopher Guest, and Harry

Does Your Money Need a Passport?

Economic inequality is a hot topic in today’s world. Researchers here and abroad consistently show the top 1% of earners gobbling a disproportionate share of gains throughout the world. This trend has more and more thinkers debating what to do about it. Do we redistribute the pie, so that everyone has a more equal share? Or do we grow it so that everyone can have a bigger slice? (There, we’ve just summed up three centuries worth of political economy in two short sentences!) Now there’s new research that shows the old research actually understates that divide. (Don’t you just love

How a Tax Coach Can Save You Thousands

Join us here for an incredible podcast with The Tony G Show and show host: Tony G!  CLICK HERE TO LISTEN    Most people don’t think of hiring a tax coach simply because they assume that the CPA or Tax professional they’ve been working with for years is looking out for the best interests. Or they may believe that their business has been fine so far, so they have little reason to pursue new options.

Trigger Warning: Snakes

What scares Americans most? It’s not the IRS, or public speaking, or even sharks. No, the answer, as you probably guessed, is snakes. Gallup once polled 1,016 American adults, and found that fully 51% of us are afraid of the scaly, coldblooded carnivores. Snakes have been bad guys going as far back as the Book of Genesis, when the serpent tempted Eve with an apple. And they’ve terrorized the rest us ever since. Who can forget Samuel L. Jackson, snapping out the only line anyone remembers from Snakes on a Plane, declaring “I have HAD it with these @#$%^ SNAKES

Soup Nazi – No Soup for You!

November 2nd, 1995, was a delicious day in television history. That’s when Jerry Seinfeld and the rest of his gang introduced us to the “Soup Nazi”, a stern-looking chef who demands his customers follow his obsessive rules for lining up and ordering. The Soup Nazi didn’t win any awards for customer service, but his soup was so good that customers lined up around the block for it anyway. The episode scored an Emmy for Larry Thomas, the actor who played the character. And it led to fame and fortune for Al Yeganah, the real-life “Soup Nazi” who operated a restaurant
