An American icon rises, Branson is audacious, and landmines and cliffs. On this edition of OFB Tom, Ken and Brian revisit a favorite from our childhood with the Radio Flyer wagon. Sir Richard Branson discusses the need for audacity. Ken rants on the dismal NFC East. And we look at the post election forecasts, fiscal cliffs and all.
First, some Hot Potato News items ….
The iconic Radio Flyer Wagon — A Different Kind of “American Radio” success story
Sir Richard Branson talks about how entrepreneurs need to be audacious
Ken rants on the NFC East where the Super Bowl Champ Giants, America’s team Dallas, Philadelphia the next great dynasty, and wunderkind RGIII and the Redskins are all underperforming.
Discussion Item — Post election forecasts and predictions
The election is over and the government is relatively the same as it was four years ago. We have a Democrat as President, a Democratic controlled Senate, and a Republican controlled House. They couldn’t get along or get anything done for the last four years. Will it be different going forward?
We dive into the various factors that help answer that question, both in the short term and the longer term.
- The impending fiscal cliff from sequestration
- A tax code that is old, antiquated, and in the way
- The folly of corporate tax rates and how they slow economic growth
- Some softening of rhetoric from President Obama and John Boehner
- A President that does not have another election in front of him
And most importantly, an electorate that won’t put up with more of the same
