How Many Americans Are Really Working?

I was talking with my business partner the other day about the latest employment statistics released by the government and got to wondering: how many Americans are really working?

DeBeers, The Fed, and The Market, Oh My!

Hey, everybody I just wanted to make a quick post about this video that I just put up on YouTube. I was doing my browsing on Reddit this morning and I saw an article from Bloomberg that was talking about the cut in diamond prices from DeBeers. This got my attention since DeBeers is more […]

How Much Do You Really Make?
