So Much Winning You'll Be Tired of Winning: Walmart Announces Bonuses, Hikes to Starting Wage Due to Tax Reform



That's a big one. But there's been more big announcements like that.

A major re-insurer, Assurant, had in 2017 announced plans to relocate to Bermuda. Market Watch, which I think is a CBS vertical, mocked Paul Ryan's claim that reducing the corporate tax rate would keep it in America.

One of the big flaws in the U.S. corporate income tax is that it encourages companies to shift revenue, profit, operations, investment and employment to other countries. The Republicans say a big benefit of their tax reform plan is that it would stop companies from doing that.

But the Republicans are wrong. Their plan would do a bit — but not enough — to discourage American companies from continuing to use tax gimmicks to avoid U.S. taxes by pretending that they earn their profits in other countries. And it wouldn’t do much to discourage companies from shifting their investment, employment and operations out of the United States, or giving up their U.S. residence through a corporate ownership inversion.

In fact, the Republican plan could make it easier.

Everyone on both sides of the aisle agrees that the U.S. corporate tax system needs to be reformed, because the current worldwide system encourages a lot of economically wasteful tax avoidance. We need a fair tax system that will raise significant revenue without harming American businesses or the U.S. economy. It’s not an easy task.

But while the Republican plan unveiled Thursday would lower the corporate rate to 20% from 35% and establish a territorial tax system, it wouldn’t do much to stop the tax-avoidance gimmicks. Why? Because there would still be an incentive to shift profits to countries that have a tax rate that’s even lower.

A few weeks ago, House Speaker Paul Ryan argued that the 20% rate would have prevented an American company, Assurant, from moving its legal headquarters to Bermuda, which doesn’t impose any corporate income tax at all.

But the last I checked, 20% is higher than 0%. The Trump-Ryan-Brady plan wouldn’t eliminate the incentive for U.S. companies to shift their operations or to shift their profits using creative transfer pricing techniques.

Nearly every tax expert who’s studied this issue agrees that the problem identified by Ryan would remain even after his bill is approved.

Well check this, stupid motherfucker: Assurant just announced it would in fact now remain in the US, despite liberal media "experts" claiming otherwise.



Oh, you didn't see any media retractions or confessions about that error? Well, see, "Experts" don't confess error. That's what makes them Experts, you know.

And here's another company handing out bonuses like they were free passes to go upstairs with a NeverTrumper's wife:



Not to mention the big Magillah: As promised, companies will begin repatriating hundreds of billions of dollars which had been parked outside of America, permanently, due to favorable treatment of that money so long as it remained outside the US.

Now that the repatriation rate is 15%, just one sector -- tech, led by Apple -- alone will repatriate $400 billion-with-a-b back into America.

Technology companies will thrive from the hundreds of billions in cash parked outside the U.S. coming into the country this year, according to one Wall Street firm.

"With the Trump administration and Beltway imposing a 15.5% tax on [repatriated] cash earnings vs. the previous 35% tax rate we expect a surge of overseas cash to come back into the US with large cap tech being the clear beneficiary for 2018 and beyond," Daniel Ives, head of technology research at GBH Insights, wrote in a note to clients Thursday.

Ives estimates large U.S. technology companies have $550 billion to $600 billion parked overseas. He predicts they will repatriate $300 billion to $400 billion in 2018, with Apple representing $200 billion of that amount.

All this may be contributing to the New Era of High Spirits:



Bit of a danger sign there, though: With the economy doing so well, and economic sentiment flying high, Trump should be doing better, poll-wise.

But perhaps the country is so hyperpartisan that the old rule, that a strong economy redounds to the benefit of the party in power, no longer holds.

Personally, I suspect the RUSSIANS are rigging the US economy to appear better than it is to benefit their AGENT Trump.

Yes, the media has been very odd over the last year. It's as if Obama's ascendancy was the most holiest of Presidencies and the only thing bad was that he could have done better.

Managing the decline and all that was just doing good for the Merican people.

More evidence of inflation. More money circulating at a faster rate through an overheated economy. Higher costs mean higher prices.

The Federal Reserve will be raising interest rates to cool an overheated economy. The Federal Deficit will go up because of higher cost of carrying twenty trillion dollars in debts. Higher deficits mean more borrowing.

I was just having a similar discussion with a friend last night about Trump and Churchill. My friend is one of those Trump Curious kind of guys, loves what he has been doing but is put off by his "lack of presidential demeanor".

I pointed out that many people had the same complaint about Churchill when he went against the popular belief about appeasing Hitler and all he did was save the world.

I think when we look back on the Trump years and we see how close the forces of international leftism and globalism came to taking control of this country and frankly the western world, Trump will be seen in a similar light.

59 Trump's poll numbers (Polls are for STRIPPERS!!!) aren't going up in proportion with the economy for the simple fact that average American still gets their news from the standard sources. They only see the negative. They likely don't know about all the bonuses that have been given out thus far. Their paychecks haven't changed yet because it won't take effect until February and they're constantly pounded with the TRUMP SUCKS meme of the American media force.

91 77 In many ways Trump is obviously the anti-Obama but given the respective media treatment I suspect he will be so in another important way: personally unpopular but politically popular.

Also don't forget the polls but one (the actual election) are garbage. Not sure why we would ever start believing them again.

92 "Bit of a danger sign there, though: With the economy doing so well, and economic sentiment flying high, Trump should be doing better, poll-wise."

A big part of this is that NONE of the media (with the exception of Fox Business) are covering this, they are trying to pretend that the growth isn't happening, the economy isn't doing much of anything. Therefore the news isn't widespread outside of people like us, yet, and it isn't getting a chance to affect political attitudes because a lot of ordinary people don't see it. YET.

and that's the big problem for the left, and the media. They can hide the news for a short while, but the economy eventually trickles into almost everyone's lives, and they begin to realize "hey, things really are getting better, even though my tv isn't talking about it" So that means that Trump is in for a long, slow gain, not a short sharp one.

Technology companies will thrive from the hundreds of billions in cash parked outside the U.S. coming into the country this year, according to one Wall Street firm.


If Silicon Valley use the money for more hiring of American citizens, combined with more geographic dispersal of the industry into flyover country, then good.

But if they're just going to use the money to hire more H1B Visa indentured servants named Raj tech workers, it's not so much of an upside. (I don't blame Trump for that, but Congress. Build the damn wall, end chain migration, of course, but also rein in the H1B orgy).

152 perhaps the country is so hyperpartisan that the old rule, that a strong economy redounds to the benefit of the party in power, no longer holds.

Nah I explained this before.

Under an administration that is actively hostile toward business, kept stacking more and more regulations, and passed massive expenses on companies (ACA in all its ways), businesses were understandably nervous and very hesitant to expand, hire, or take risks of any kind. From year to year there was no way of knowing what the next target was going to be, or if you'd be in the sights of the weaponized federal agencies.

So they had money, but not will to use it. It would have been unwise to investors and unsafe for owners.

With that burden lifted, and under a president that is extremely friendly to business, removing regulations, and lightening expense burdens on companies... they're finally breaking free with a huge sigh of relief.

Its like living under a potential avalanche, with the guy in charge throwing firecrackers at it. Now the avalanche isn't there and the guy in charge isn't trying to trigger it. Just that stress being gone is incredibly cheering and liberating.

170 I'm terrified that Soros and his minions will do everything they can to tank the economy right before the election.

This is my greatest concern. There are several jenga piles he can yank a piece out of. Easily. The housing bubble didn't have to pop in 2007, it just did because it was triggered then. It could have gone on several more years. It was inevitably going to collapse, but it was pushed to go off just as Obama's popularity and poll numbers were collapsing.

They usually buy a huge chunk of land and park a Sam's next to a 24 hour Super Wal Mart.
Those that don't need to buy for a platoon, (264 count rolls of tp), shop at Wal Mart.
Also, Sam's doesn't sell everything Wal Mart does.

Kinda nice to go next door and not all the way across town to get stuff Sam's doesn't have.

I did not renew my membership, because there didn't seem to be any point. Most things are just as inexpensive and sometimes even less inexpensive at Walmart.

(The one thing that almost changed my mind was check out as you go--that is, no going through the checkout line, just use your phone to scan the stuff you put into your cart as you put it in your cart, and then walk out the door. But that wasn't as helpful as it could be because there isn't a lot of shopping I could shift to Sam's Club from somewhere else.)

249 .They are closing 68 out of 660 store Nation wide, they are not closing all of their store no matter what the msm tries to tell you.

In our area, a new Super Walmart just opened, along with 2 or 3 Walmart Grocery Stores. I think that they've over saturated some markets with various outlets, and are now focusing on the Super Walmarts and the Grocery Walmarts while cutting back Sam's a little bit.

281 Snap reactions to Sam's Club closings:

A) I've got the impression that Costco has been eating their lunch in the big-box market
B) Wal-Mart has been pushing hard for a while now to transition their logistics network and online retail into a viable competitor for Amazon. "Big-box" stores don't fit into the same niche, and are just a drain on the logistic capabilities they want to utilize in other ways.

So I wouldn't be surprised to see a continuing trend of Sam's Club closures over the next few quarters.

283 As promised, companies will begin repatriating hundreds of billions of dollars which had been parked outside of America, permanently, due to favorable treatment of that money so long as it remained outside the US.

Yeah they were making money, they could have afforded to give raises, etc, it was just a really bad business decision because there wasn't consumer activity and the instability of the Obama economy just couldn't justify it. So they invested and parked money until such time they could see reasonable chance of stability and a business friendly environment.

In other words, these guys have been sitting on a lot of resources, ready for a chance to hire, invest, expand, and take risks and are now going to do it. Are doing it.

And they expect big returns, so they're passing that on to employees

Because as someone smarter than me said here a few weeks back: we're moving from an employer market into an employee market and you want to keep the good, trained employees where they are, not looking for work elsewhere.

The cognitive dissonance is getting more and more out of whack. The more reality sets in, the harder it is to do the mental and logical pretzel yoga gymnastics that it takes to ignore the good things that are happening under Trump.

These people can't even graciously accept a tax break. It HAS to be bad somehow, because TRUMP DID IT! I mean geez louise, even if you personally hate the guy, and I get that because hey, he can be a bit abrasive at times, but HOW IN THE HELL can you not like getting more of your own money back? And more jobs. And our enemies fearing us again. And being a bit safer here at home.

Apparently, U of Chicago has written a letter objecting to some of the Obama Center's plans for the park. In IL there are special laws for libraries and archives and the Obama Center ain't either of them. U of Chicago also shares that southwest area with the proposed center and they see no public benefit.

416 Sweetie, we have Sam's Club up here, so, just a little bit west of the Mississippi.

Also, I shop at Costco, not Sam's Club. More fresh produce, better quality baked goods (mostly local), fewer things Made in China. I eat healthy, for the most part, and Costco is the bulk of my purchases. Fred Meyer for the rest.

Walmart might have good deals, but the clientele puts me right off, and they don't buy locally. It takes twice as long to shop there, and the checkout lines are epic.

Costco is mom-meets-efficiency space.

Having a big family, I have done most of my shopping at Costco for years (and still do, even though not all live at home anymore). I've never had to buy 6 loaves of bread - just one, although I rarely buy any. I like that I can get roasting chickens for $.99/pound (two chickens per pack, but if I don't need to make two, they are individually packed so I can freeze one).

They have great prices on dairy and produce, for the most part (if you know your prices), and the turnover is very swift so the stuff is very fresh.

And I never buy those huge boxes of junk food, although it is certainly present in the stores.

If Trump gets legislatively funded wall, end of chain immigration and a shitcanned immigration lottery, the Dreamers can stay.


^^This.

But, I would give these fvking illegal aliens immediate provisional citizenship, as long as the wall is immediately built, and immigration laws aggressively enforced, and no loosening of immigration requirements.

The instant this happens, these people get deported.

THAT will turn them into Reublicans pronto.

423 Let me tell you something - if all the DACA jaggoffs get is a renewable work visa (which I think is too much - but willing to compromise on that) and we get a wall, and end to chain migration and no more immigration lottery )( PLUS merit based immigration?! which i believe is in the House bill - someone here can correct if I am wrong) Then my question is: Where do I sign?
Posted by: Publius Redux at January 11, 2018 03:49 PM (Fb9aZ)



Question, does this presume that the wall goes up before all that? Or at least the funding is made and disbursed?

Because if so, I would agree. I just don't trust those scamps not to say the wall gets built later. You know, like it's been promised since 1986.

And they have to work on the wall as part of the deal.

The end of Quantitative Easing and the increase of the interest rates (without corresponding damage) is going to have some effect on inflation and the dollar, but I don't foresee serious problems. We'll find out, I guess.

Posted by: Decaf at January 11, 2018 03:31 PM (/3+Sg)


As I understand it, the money hasn't been "going elsewhere". It's money US companies made overseas. It got taxed overseas. If that money was to come back to the US (to hire more people, build more stores, etc), it would have been taxed again.

Companies that could afford to let it sit, did so. They banked on the tax rate coming down at some point.

Tax reform

Regulation Reform

I can see a path forward where by 2020, he will have accomplished what he ran on. Everything after that is purely for the Republican party. If by then the Republicans haven't reformed themselves to be Trump when Trump is no longer there, another 4 years won't matter much.
I think he's already a VERY consequential President, so honestly, if worst comes to worse because of the decadence and decay of the US population, he will still go down as a unique success story.

477 But the last I checked, 20% is higher than 0%. The Trump-Ryan-Brady plan wouldn't eliminate the incentive for U.S. companies to shift their operations or to shift their profits using creative transfer pricing techniques.

The last time I checked, 20% is less than most of the foreign corporate rates - which these companies will be subject to if they remain in their foreign locations.

That was kind of the point to dropping the US rate down to 20%.
