Market and economic update: Lower energy prices may fuel consumer spending

The decline in oil prices over the past few months is starting to impact U.S. economic data. Inflation measures have slipped lower, consumer confidence is rising, and industrial activity is waning.

At least Packers TE Brandon Bostick manned up

The Stately Manor remains draped in black today in observance of the great disaster that befell a proud people this week. We speak not of the State of the Union address (watched Out of Africa on TMC instead) but of the incredible defeat of our beloved Green and Gold by the Blue-Green Sea Algae. A perfect storm of blown assignments, timidity, stupid penalties, and pure dumb bad luck. We couldn’t even win the coin toss for OT!

Addressing potential roadblocks to broadband expansion

When thinking about how to encourage broadband expansion — both in terms of geographic availability and level of quality — we often focus on funding. Particularly in rural areas, the cost of providing new broadband service or improving existing service can be cost-prohibitive because of the large distances between customers and the scarcity of customers who could be accessed by a proposed build-out.

Is long-term-care insurance right for you?

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that health care costs are among the leading concerns on people’s minds as they near retirement. Long-term-care costs can vary widely by the type of care and location. A single room at a nursing home facility will cost, on average, close to $88,000 per year, and a typical stay lasts approximately four years. Part-time in-home care by a home health care practitioner will cost considerably less.

How to succeed in business through the power of attitude

"Popular … you’re gonna be popular." I love that song from the musical Wicked. Everyone who’s seen the show or listened to the lyrics understands that a good attitude helps make one popular.

Is ‘Justified Anger’ ready to be a leading voice on black economic development?

I was recently invited to participate in the “Justified Anger and Economic Development Committee.” While researching the Justified Anger Coalition, I glimpsed the machinery behind the organization’s operations. What I saw raised some questions about the politics of Justified Anger. These are my personal observations.

Low gasoline prices ideal for consumers, major challenge for alternative fuels

With gasoline prices hovering around $2 per gallon or less for regular grade across Wisconsin, drivers are saving money every time they fill up their tanks. The story for producers of alternative fuels and researchers seeking to unlock next-generation biofuels is very different. Their tanks are running on vapors.

Where are Madison’s ‘Charlie Hebdos’ to speak out vs. ‘Young and Foolish’?

Here is my fantasy. A Madison TV news broadcast turns to its editorial voice for 30 seconds of wisdom. Instead of bloviating, equivocating, and temporizing, the TV editorial conscience — let’s call him Neil — slams his fist on the desk so hard that his coffee cup spills. “This **** must stop!”

Market and economic update: Still waiting for job growth to translate to wage growth

Nonfarm payrolls grew by 2.95 million jobs in 2014, the fastest pace since 2000, with the unemployment rate finishing the year at 5.6%, the lowest level since 2008. The market was somewhat disappointed, however, by the decline in average hourly earnings, which indicated the growth in payrolls is not yet resulting in meaningful wage growth.

In progressive Madison, perpetrators are victims, police are enemies

Someone had to stand against Young, Gifted and Black at their rally Tuesday evening. So it was good to see Tom Brew, Todd Osborne, and Steve Hufton join the Squire on the freezing cold steps of the City-County Building Tuesday afternoon to counter the noisy group agitating for an apartheid justice system in Dane County.

The impact of lower gas prices on transportation? We’ll see …

The dramatic drop in oil prices has widespread implications for everything from geopolitical relationships to the world economy to our domestic economy to whether a vacation may end up being feasible after all.

Leader to Leader

Will your business grow or stagnate in 2015?

It’s that time of year again, when people set new goals. For example, I am going to lose 10 pounds by working out four times a week and not eating after 8 p.m. I will spend more quality time with my family. I will read at least one business book per month. And the list goes on.

On a shoestring budget? Consider co-marketing

If your small business is typical, your visibility and marketing budget is the last to see any action. And because your budget is so small, it’s difficult to make a splash with potential customers. That’s where “co-marketing” comes in.

Who will call out the Young, Foolish and Racist of Madison?

A gaggle of maybe two-dozen noisemakers are mining the seemingly inexhaustible reserves of liberal white guilt in Madison, Wis., in order to advance a new, separate-but-unequal racial apartheid. Being Madison, they will be taken seriously.
