It's often said that the chairman of the Fed is the second most powerful person in the world, next only to the president of the United States. Some say the chairman is even more powerful. When Ben Bernanke publicly stated on September 8, 2013, the Fed's intent to continue its policy of quantitative easing, global markets instantly reversed direction from a worrying downward spiral to an exuberant upward surge. Even POTUS can't do that.

Today we were joined by the president of the American College and author, Dr. Robert R. Johnson. We discussed interest rates and his new book Invest with the Fed.

While everyone's heard stories of people cleaning out an attic to find
comic books they sold at a hefty profit, it's not just the older books that
are valuable. Even comic books from the last 20 years are becoming more
collectible. Some have jumped from just a few dollars each five years ago to $50 to $100 today. Smart collectors are finding that they can make money off of this trend, but only if they treat it like they would any serious
investment.

Today we were joined by the co-owner of Metropolis Collectibles, Vincent Zurzolo.

Vincent Zurzolo is co-owner of the New York-based Metropolis
Collectibles, the world's largest vintage comic book dealership, and ComicConnect.com, the largest online vintage comic auction house. He and his partner, Stephen Fishler, hold five Guinness World Records for the most expensive comics and related collectibles ever sold.

The U.S. government is trying to figure out what moves you -- specifically what moves you to get off the couch and sign up for federal benefits.

The Obama administration is dipping into research in behavioral economics and psychology to scrutinize federal documents, websites and procedures to get a better sense of what’s working -- and what’s not working -- to make the most of government programs from college aid to veterans benefits.

Today we were joined by Chief Behavioral Strategist of Hoffeld Group, David Hoffeld.

David Hoffeld is the Chief Behavioral Strategist at Hoffeld Group, a research-based sales training, coaching and consulting firm.   David works with companies throughout North America, showing them how to align their sales message with the findings of behavioral science.  He is a respected thought leader who is widely regarded as the #1 authority on integrating behavioral science and sales.  David has also been recently been featured in Fortune, U.S. News & World Report, CBS Radio, Fox News Radio and more.

Our words can move other people from a fear-based mindset in which they see obstacles as insurmountable, to a positive mindset where they see that change is possible, get unstuck, and take action. What makes the difference is what we choose to broadcast. Using scientifically proven communication strategies to ripple out positive change to others, we increase their happiness and success at work, as well as our own, instantly making us more effective leaders.

New research from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience shows that small shifts to the way we communicate can create big ripple effects on business outcomes, including 31% higher productivity, 25% greater performance ratings, 37% higher sales, and 23% lower levels of stress.

Today we were joined by Michelle Gielan, Author of the new book Broadcasting Happiness.

Michelle Gielan, national CBS News anchor turned positive psychology researcher, is the bestselling author of Broadcasting Happiness. Michelle is the Founder of the Institute for Applied Positive Research and is partnered with Arianna Huffington to study how transformative stories fuel success. She is an Executive Producer of “The Happiness Advantage” Special on PBS and a featured professor in Oprah’s Happiness course. Michelle holds a Master of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, and her research and advice have received attention from The New York Times, Washington Post, FORBES, CNN, FOX, and Harvard Business Review.

Multilevel marketers take pains to distinguish their businesses (which are legal) from pyramid schemes (which are not). In a pyramid, recruitment is everything. People pay to participate, and are rewarded by finding others willing to pay to join. At some point the supply of new recruits dries up and the pyramid collapses.

Today we were joined by CEO and Founder of Miles Development Industries Corporation, Anthony Miles. We discussed Multi-Level Marketing AKA Network Marketing and Ponzi Schemes, and what consumers need to know to protect themselves. Run Away!!!!!!

“The most important thing about art is to work. Nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying.”
Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles

Today we were joined live in the studio by Tod Waters of Junker Designs. We discussed his artistic endeavors with Junker Designs, current music projects and the Junker event at Dirt bar tomorrow night.

Tod's Bio :

Was born at St Vincents in Manhattan and grew up in Houston, Texas on a steady diet of Ultraman, horror movies, war films, and Star Wars. I spent a lot of time drawing and exploring in the creek by my house. At around the age of 8 I started getting in trouble in school for drawing on all my papers and my desk. In high school I was getting into trouble for wearing biker boots and painting on my clothes, so I quit and started playing in punk rock bands. During that time, I started sewing more and put legs of jeans on my jackets for arms, drew, hand painted , silk screened, and dyed all my clothes. I continued to mutilate clothes when I moved to LA in 2000 I started to experiment with aging processes, and patternmaking. I made a vest at a friend’s house, Lenny Kravitz saw it, bought it, and that’s how it all started.

Have tribal allegiances distorted the economics profession and blinded economists to the obvious?

Todays guest was Meghnad Desai who joined us live from India. We will be discussed his new book Hubris - Why Economists Failed to Predict The Crisis And How To Avoid The Next One.

The failure of economists to anticipate the international economic crisis and lingering recession th...at continues even today has spurred public outcry and inspired legislative action. Economists are under fire, but questions concerning exactly how to redeem their discipline remain unanswered.

Meghnad Desai is an Indian-born, naturalized British economist and Labour politician. He unsuccessfully stood for the Speaker in the British House of Lords in 2011, the first ever non-UK born candidate to do so. He has been awarded the Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian award in the Republic of India, in 2008.

How many people in the US don't even know the name of their next door neighbor? Many people may go through life without ever experiencing a sense of community, like the residents of Alief, TX have.

Friday's guest was entrepreneur and president of Darryl Douglas Media Mike Puckett. Mike started the Alief Legends Facebook group that has blown up far beyond everyone's expectations ! With over 22k members in less than a week, Mike's efforts to bring the Alief community together has snowballed into a social media force to be reckoned with!
