The Hunt for a New HQ

Amazon
Amazon is the belle of the ball

After receiving 238 proposals for its second headquarters, Amazon has released a list of 20 finalists. The potential locations include major US cities, as well as less obvious choices (such as Newark, Austin, Nashville, and Toronto). Amazon will be making its final decision sometime this year; will the winning location be in the Northeast region of the US? (These contenders include Boston, Newark, New York, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh.)

Planes, Trains and… Highways?

Infrastructure could be the key to President Trump’s 2020 reelection

 

Late last year, the Trump administration hoped to present a detailed infrastructure plan in January. There also seems to be disparity in the White House concerning the bill; Gary Cohn, the president’s chief economic adviser is considering a joint effort of private and public institutions to achieve a total of $1 trillion in private, local and state spending with an initial investment of $200 billion from the federal government. Trump seems to disagree with the latter proposal. Will Congress vote on an infrastructure bill by the end of March?

 

Currency Manipulators?

It was one of Donald Trump’s core campaign promises

 

One of the centerpieces of Trump’s campaign promises was to label China as a currency manipulator on “day one” of his administration; however, he also expressed his interest in collaborating with the Chinese President Xi Jinping to pressure North Korea into dissolving its nuclear weapons program. Will the President go as far to publicly label China as a currency manipulator in the wake of a nuclear conflict with North Korea?
