Greeks reject demands for more austerity in key referendum

By Menelaos Hadjicostis and Derek Gatopoulos | AP July 5 at 4:52 PM

ATHENS, Greece — Voters in Greece resoundingly rejected creditors’ demands for more austerity in return for rescue loans Sunday, backing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who insisted the vote would give him a stronger hand to reach a better deal.

Obama Allows Some Feds to Tap Retirement Money Early Without Penalty

Beginning in 2016, federal law enforcement officers will be able to access money in their Thrift Savings Plan accounts without penalty when they are eligible to retire.

President Obama on Monday signed the Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act into law, which reforms the tax code so that federal law enforcement officers and firefighters, who are eligible to retire earlier than many other federal employees, aren’t subject to the 10 percent tax penalty on TSP retirement funds and other 401(k)-type plans tapped before the age of 59 and a half. Border protection and customs officers and air traffic controllers would also be exempt from the tax penalty under the new law, which applies to distributions made after Dec. 31, 2015. (See link for rest of story...)

Greece high court rules referendum is constitutional.
by  Israel CSI | 5 Comments

The Greece Council of State (high court) ruled today that the referendum is constitutional, or to be more accurate, it is not unconstitutional.

The EU is in favor of the referendum so there shouldn't be any future drama over the validity of the vote.

percentile rates of return for 1 July correct? The share prices are, but the bottom chart indicated a .30 something percent increase as opposed to the displayed .84 percent. Does this make a difference in the Fantasy Game standings?

GDP - U.S. vs China
by  United States Kato | 9 Comments

Okay so I'm wondering about investing in the US much anymore. Why?

Well for starters, the US has dropped in total GDP by 6% in the last 25 years while China has gained almost 9% in those same 25 years.

Now I'm talking global GDP. The US leads the world at 19.31% with China coming in at second with 15.4% If this trend between the two countries continues, China will surpass the US in about 5 to 10 years.

Much of the investment opportunties in China are not available to US investors but there are some very attractive ETF options. For example, FXI, ASHR, KBA, CNXT, ASHS, and CHAU to name a few popular ones. Their expense ratios are mostly on par with most US ETF's and they have great returns so far.

Now I know the GDP of a country is not the only variable you look at when investing but it does make me wonder where the global markets will be leaning in the coming years especially from an investment standpoint and that makes me wonder about investing in the US.

Thoughts, opinions, or general sarcasm encouraged :)
