    Closing Colleges? Students Unite To Fight Governor Withholding Education Funds

    in Women

    Running a government, whether it is a city, state, or country, is like running a household. You look at what your operating costs are, look at your total household income, and decide how to spend the money you make to pay bills and make sure everyone is fed, clothed, kept warm and safe, and educated.  That's what good parents do to take care of the children whose lives are in their hands. The problem with some elected officials is that they are not being good "parents" of the "children" they are supposed to take care of, namely, the voters who are entrusting them with decisions that affect people's lives.  Schools in Illinois are being threatened with closure because Governor Bruce Rauner, elected by a small percentage of votes, has held up the release of funds for education, refusing to sign legislation presented by the Illinois General Assembly. Students have united to fight for their right to receive education and are mounting a massive voter registration drive, as well as mass demonstrations and lobbying elected officials to push the Governor to act. If not, what next? Students have already shown how economic boycotts and refusal of sports teams to play can have an impact. Today's guests, student leaders Darren Martin from Chicago State University and Nicolas Martinez from Northeastern Illinois University discuss the power of a new, politically involved, educated generation.

    Ken welcomes Bill Leonard

    in Self Help

    If you have questions about money and wealth, financial security and independence, this is one show you won't want to miss.  


    We are fortunate to have in the studio Bill Leonard, who is Ken's personal go-to money wizard. Bill is a sharp guy and he specializes in helping people optimize and maximze their whole financial picture.  Bill has access to the best companies and state of the art products that he uses to help his clients grow their retirement funds faster, protect against losses, take advantage of compounding interest (with high rates of return) and enjoy "living benefits."  


    Until recently, much of this information was available only to the ultra-wealthy. Bill is also a down to earth guy and happy to work with clients at every level. 


    Ken and Bill will also talk about the ravages of poor returns, losses, taxes, and inflation; and how they will set you back and ruin your financial plans (if you don't understand how they work against you). This will be informative and provocative because Bill is not afraid to shatter the myths and tell it like it is. What most people think they know about financial planning is wrong and designed to work against them.  Arm yourself with the facts and the truth.


    This is your opportunity to call in and ask your questions directly to Bill.  Some people might think that talking about money and wealth is boring, but we're going to make it fun--especially when it puts more wealth and spending power in your pocket.


    If you have questions for Bill, and would like to schedule your Personal Financial Health Check-up, Bill can be contacted via email:  shopwithbill@gmail.com

    PBC Allegedly losing $446,127,000 Are Rumors True? Are They In Trouble?

    in Sports

    On This Super Bowl Sunday Edition, the gang will discuss the rumors of the financial losses of PBC and if they are in serious trouble or not?Waddell & Reed's Investment in Haymon: $82 mil. Remaining (of $521 mil.) as of December 31, 2015, self.Boxing
    submitted 9 days ago * by jimwilson128


    Building off of my last post of the Q3 results from the mutual funds managed by Waddell & Reed that invested in Haymon:
    Acquisition cost (initial value) of combined investment: $528,481,000
    Value of combined investment as of September 30, 2015: $214,288,000
    Value of combined investment as of December 31, 2015: $82,354,000


    To date, the investment made into Media Group Holdings, Series H (which invested in Haymon Boxing) by the three Waddell & Reed funds (Ivy Asset Strategy, Ivy VIP Asset Strategy, Waddell & Reed Advisors Asset Strategy) has lost 84% of its value. At this rate, the investment will be worth zero dollars by the end of February, which implies that Haymon will run out of funding at that time.
    Edit: Headline contains a typo. Should say $528 mil.


    And, of course, we will be taking live calls on air from you the voice of the people. From Alumni to first-time callers, we encourage everyone to call 646-478-3068 to voice your opinion.
