Venezuela Restores 5-Day Work Week

The Venezuelan government just reported that the 2-day work week is no more. Economic shortages gripping the country have forced a lot of changes – mostly bad. Food, power and other basic supplies are nearly non-existent.
Government offices were forced to work only two days a week to ease the pressure of the energy shortage.

“The people in Venezuela are still in deep trouble” says expert Jose Manuel Gonzalez. Political unrest coupled with the lack of basic necessities have sent the country into a tailspin. No one knows when or if it will all end. President Nicolas Maduro is taking the brunt of the blame.

The energy minister announced that water levels at the main dam have been restored. The normalization has given way to restored energy. Manuel Gonzalez say the energy-saving bid is nothing more than a sham. Many workers simply went home and used computers.

The people of Venezuela are just glad to see a little bit of relief.

George Soros Zeroes In On Bearish Investments

George Soros has made a return to trading after almost a year away from trading. According to CNBC, the billionaire directed his firm, Soros Fund Management, to sell stocks from other sectors and then buy gold and shares in gold mining companies. This move shocked many people who had thought the self-made billionaire was out of trading for good.

After several efforts to save the European Union and Ukraine, George Soros seems to have given up on the dream. Instead, he has directed his efforts to saving his empire from a potential economic disaster that may follow events such as the fast approaching British referendum on exiting the union. BREXIT has created a gloomier view of the global economy as many investors and traders expect large market moves before and after the referendum. It seems Soros move from the stocks is one of the first in the industry.

Analysts believe that Soros has been lured back not by the potential damage of the coming economic troubles on his investments, but by the opportunities to make profits from the potential crises. The investment firm, founded by George Soros, manages over $30 billion of investments for him and his family. The bearish investments could not go without being noticed by other traders and investors.

George Soros first earned fame in 1992 when his gamble against the British Pound saw him rip profits in excess of $1 billion from one trade. However, his recent move is seen to be against his old trading patterns where he attacked potential crises head-on rather than avoiding them.

Through an email interview, Soros noted several things that he considered bad for the global economy. First, Soros talked about the capital flight from China. He also pointed out that European Union may be heading for a collapse due to its failure to solve crises such as migration crisis, the UK’s potential exit and Greek financial challenges.

Andy Wirth Wants More Community Input In The Valley

The Auburn Journal has a piece by Andy Wirth that talks about how he wants the community to talk to him about incorporation. He knows that a few people want to incorporate right now, but he does not think this is the best way to go. He believes that the whole area will get better results if they are talking about it. Talking about how people want to incorporate is important, and he is inviting people to come talk about it.

There are those that want to incorporate just so they can have a government council, but there is no way that all these people can afford to pay for the new government without raising taxes.

Raising taxes is something that a lot of people do not want, and that is because they are of the same mind as Andy Wirth. They are the kind of people who want to be able to stay in the area with the same kinds of costs they have now.

Andy Wirth wants to be sure that people know how the new government would impact businesses, and he owns two lodges that have to be able to employ people. He wants to keep taxes low so that he can offer a lot of jobs, and he wants the smaller business owners to have the same kinds of help.

He wants the people that he has known almost all his life to be able to stay in business, and he wants them to feel like they can afford to stay. Property owners should not spend too much on their own taxes, and they will be able to save if they do not incorporate.

The incorporation question needs more community input, and it needs to be decided where everyone will be able to have a good feeling about it.

The only way to be sure that the Olympic Valley is safe is to talk as a community. Andy Wirth wants the people to come together, and he is willing to be the person that gets the conversation started to do something other than incorporation of his beloved valley.
