Market and economic report: Falling oil prices capture markets’ attention

The decline in oil prices has captured the markets’ attention, leaving key economic data in the background. The 40% decline in oil prices will typically lift U.S. economic activity by about 1% over the next couple of years. The benefits will take some time to be reflected in the economic data, likely later in 2015.

Fanlund, in Madison’s Funland, resents the rejection of redistributionism

There is so much wrong with Paul Fanlund’s overlong diatribe “No end in sight to Wisconsin’s politics of resentment” that it is difficult to know where to begin. The editor of The Capital Times, “Your Progressive Voice,” is the blind man who describes the elephant after stroking only the tail, then complains about the peanuts.

How to take a win-win approach to negotiations

Although the parties involved in any negotiation probably have different motives, values, concerns, and reasons for wanting a particular solution, it’s safe to say that everyone involved is equally committed to the outcome, both intellectually and emotionally.

Equity crowdfunding in Wisconsin: Another way for startups to raise capital

As a result, some startups have turned to reward crowdfunding, which allows hundreds or thousands of individuals to donate smaller amounts and thereby minimize risk.

In the tech world, ‘right-to-work’ laws aren’t a factor

If you ask the typical technology company executive or worker what he or she thinks of “right-to-work” laws, which say workers cannot be forced to join a union shop and pay dues as a condition of employment, you may get a blank stare for an answer.

Poopin’ in the chambers, junking up city hall, and calling ‘stupid’

And they say Scott Walker is stupid because he didn’t finish college. Our liberal-progressive-socialist acquaintances said the same thing about Dubya and he had degrees from Harvard and Yale. Voters, clinging to their guns and religion, are stupid for electing them. But the Republican Party does not run Madison’s City-County Building.

The redistributionist ideology needs victims

As then-Milwaukee county executive Scott Walker would say, Molotov! The resisting-arrest shooting in Ferguson and the bogus rape at the University of Virginia fraternity house are two fronts in the redistributionists’ war on America.

The season of taking: Avoiding occupational business fraud over the holidays

It’s commonly referred to as the “season of giving,” but business owners should beware of winter’s notorious reputation as the “season of taking.” According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), fraud increases an estimated 20% between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, and it does not discriminate between large and small businesses.

A business wish list for Santa

The other day, as I was beginning my list of goals for 2015, I began to think that in order to make some of the lofty things I want for next year happen, I’ll have to put some things into place starting right now.

Crimes of poverty, lapses in logic, bad cigars, and worse football

59-0! My control here at In Business, Tom Breuer, asks, “So do you have Big Ten Championship PTSD as well?” Yes, debilitatingly so. I expect further humiliation at the hands of Auburn on New Year’s Day, followed by an invitation to join the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference to replace UW-Superior.
