After a very busy week last week, with State Senator Mike Harridopolos, Chair of the Florida Senate Tax and Finance committee as my guest, this week I return to our more normal format - covering all the news from around the State and indeed around the country, that is relevant to my listeners.
First up I will be discussing the demise of so called discount broker Foxtons, who closed their doors for the last time this week. They blame the market, but actually I blame the fact that they offer no service to their clients. So in a boom market they can make some money, but as soon as they actually have to work for a living, they are in deep trouble. This could be the first of many.
One of my big problems in life, is Government sticking its nose into the market - and so with all the legislative changes going on, clearly I will have a lot to say. Luckily I love the sound of my own voice and so I won't be running dry any time soon.
Is there discrimination going on in the lending industry? Two bits of evidence suggests there is, but I will examine whether they were comparing apples with apples before drawing any conclusions.
Once more we have more GREAT news for Florida's economy as it once again bucks the national trend.
