Friday Financial Five – June 23, 2017

Friday, June 23, 2017

Economic fundamentals continue to be the focus as the Federal Reserve did recently raise the target range for the federal funds rate by 25 basis points to 1.00-1.25%.

Otto Warmbier

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

The United States should impose an embargo against North Korea similar to the one against Cuba. While I oppose the embargo against Cuba, an embargo against North Korea would be much different. The United States has successfully restricted most American travel to the Caribbean island for decades; unfortunately, it failed to trigger regime change or influence its behavior — the original intent. The intention of the embargo I am proposing against North Korea would be to stem the tide of Americans traveling to the hermit country, not regime change.

Fecteau: Adiós Cuba

Sunday, June 18, 2017

In turn, Mr. Obama made it much easier for Americans to the visit the Caribbean island and for businesses to import Cuban goods. The boon in tourism jump-started Cuba’s sluggish economy and increased American influence.
