Poverty in the USA

Fewer people in the US are living in poverty

By Rick Kahler CFP®

According to the October 2017 annual report of the Hamilton Project of the Brookings Institute, the number of Americans living in poverty declined by 13%, or 6 million people, in the two years from 2014 to 2016. That’s encouraging news.

Not so encouraging is that 40.6 million people still live under the government poverty level. This is about one out of every eight Americans. The department of Health and Human Services sets the poverty rate at $32,580 or less for a family of six and $16,020 or less for two people.

Who are those officially classified as poor?

According to IPUMS, an organization associated with the University of Minnesota which integrates worldwide census data, 33% are children under age 18 and 11% are seniors over age 65. So 56% of those living in poverty are of working age, ages 18-65.

Of those who are working age, 21% are disabled, 15% are caregivers, 13% are students, and 10% are early retirees or unclassified, which leaves 41% available to work full time. This is 24% of all people who are in poverty, or about 9.8 million people.

Of that 9.8 million, 65% work part time, 25% work full time, and 10% don’t work. This means just under one million of the 40.6 million people in poverty are actually able to work but unemployed.

Something I found interesting was that of the 65% who work part time, two-thirds (4.3 million) choose to do so and only one-third (2.1 million) would like to work full time. If we add the one million who are unemployed and the 2.1 million part time workers who want full time employment, we have 3.1 million people in poverty who would like to work full time, but can’t find work. This is just 7.4% of all people considered to be below the poverty level.

That leads me to wonder what might change if the 4.3 million choosing to work part time actually worked full time. Might a significant portion of them pull themselves and their families out of poverty? Is it possible that many of these people choose to live in poverty? Or might some of them choose to work part time because earning more would be countered by factors like higher child care costs or losses in government benefits? While I don’t have any statistics on this, I have a hunch it is both.

Keven Winder, a life coach who blogs at thriveinexile.com, has a post from June 2017 titled “The Poverty of the Poor.” He says, “The cause of poverty is not solely education, politics, or the need for jobs. It’s not mental illness, addiction, housing, or food programs,” which he contends are by-products of poverty. “Poverty is deeper. Poverty is disengagement from that which powers us.”

It seems to me that Winder is using “disengagement” to mean what might be described as emotional poverty. The type of emotional disengagement that helps keep people in poverty may be no different from that of a person who earns a comfortable income but chooses not to save for retirement. Or someone who loses a job but has too much false pride to take a lesser one even temporarily.

We know the cure for financial behaviors based in emotional disengagement is not more information. Those choosing to work part time and live in poverty don’t need budget figures on how earning more would increase their standard of living. The behavior goes much deeper and is emotionally entrenched.

Assessment

Certainly, financial therapy might make a difference. Unfortunately, it’s still unavailable for too many of those who need it the most.

Key strategies for hospital pension fund managers

Professor Hope Hetico

By Hope R. Hetico RN MHA

[Managing Editor]

Recently, Mr. John Andrews, Contributing Editor of the well known industry publication Healthcare Finance News in Chicago, caught up with our Publisher and Editor-in-Chief … Dave Marcinko.

He was asked the following questions which focused on best industry practices and looked at the overall pension situation for hospitals and health systems in the US.

Questions:

  • How prevalent are pensions for hospital workers and how does it compare to the economy at large?
  • Are more hospitals going to a 401(k) benefit system?
  • Is there someone within hospital HR managing the pension funds or do they typically contract with outside firms?
  • What are the key tenets to investing for a hospital pension fund? How much risk should be assumed compared to more conservative investments? How do you strike a balance between growth and capital preservation?
  • In general, how well do hospitals understand their fiduciary responsibilities? How involved should the Board of Directors be in the process?
  • Do you recommend a defined contribution and defined benefit plan? What are the pros and cons of each?
  • Are there certain industries that are more attractive than others for investment? Is it kosher for a healthcare pension fund to invest in healthcare-related interests?
  • and much more!

Assessment

Of course, any interview with David is a free-for-all with topics and discussions all over the place; so enjoy the [electronic] show.

COUPLES: “one is a spender and one is a saver”

On Couples and Money

By Rick Kahler CFP®

“With couples, usually one is a spender and one is a saver.”

I’ve heard this many times, and I’ve even said it myself. Money issues are one of the most common areas of stress between partners, and conflicting views over spending and saving is a major contributor.

However, a recent study done by Brigham Young University and Kansas State University led me to see marital money issues in a new way. The study, published last year in the Journal of Financial Planning under the title “Tightwads and Spenders: Predicting Financial Conflict in Couple Relationships,” found that partners’ perceptions of each other’s money behavior often does not match reality. The fact that you may see your partner as a spender has actually no correlation to whether they are. Yet there is a huge correlation between thinking your partner is a spender and experiencing financial conflict in the marriage.

Study

Ashley LeBaron, a BYU graduate student and co-author of the study, said this in a BYU News article published August 15, 2017: “The fact that partners’ perceptions of each other’s spending behaviors were so predictive of financial conflict suggests that when it comes to the impact of finances on relationships, perceptions may be just as important, if not more important, than reality.”

As it turns out, the highest contributors to financial conflict between partners weren’t disagreements over how much to fund children’s education, save toward retirement, or spend on a vacation or a car. It was whether one partner considered the other partner a spender or a tightwad—regardless of their actual spending patterns.

If you want to bring more harmony and objectivity around money to your couple-ship, you might consider taking the following steps:

1. Define “spender” in your own words. What does it mean to you if someone is a spender?
2. Define “tightwad” in your own words.
3. Think of your definition of “spender.” Write down all the one-word feelings that you can identify when you think of a spender.
4. Do the same with your definition of “tightwad.”
5. Write a list of all the evidence you can think of that your partner is a spender. Stick with the facts, not a projection. For example, a statement that “my partner spends too much money on coffee” is a projection. Instead, “Three days a week, my partner spends $2.50 on an Americano at Starbucks,” is an observation.
6. In the same way, list all the evidence that your partner is a tightwad.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6, but about yourself.
8. Look back at the one-word feelings you listed in step 3. Which of those might your partner feel about your spending?
9. Consider which of the one-word feelings you listed in step 4 that your partner might feel about your saving.
10. Now, give this exercise to your partner to complete.

***

***

Finally, select a time to compare answers. Choose one of you to go first while the other listens with absolutely no interruptions, cross talk, or comment. This is hard, but crucial. When the first partner is done, then switch roles without any comments.

If your partner isn’t willing to participate, consider doing this exercise on your own. The insight you gain could be valuable.

Assessment

If the level of money conflict in your relationship is so high that you can’t even imagine doing this exercise together, you also might consider setting up an appointment with a financial therapist. Conflicts over money can be resolved, but it often takes both partners having the willingness do so. Even more, it often takes one or both partners having the courage to ask for help.

Dental EHRs are a Scam?

Electronic dental records are a scam. They have always been a scam.

By Darrell Pruitt DDS

“Microsoft & Google unable to detect new zero-day ransomware.” By Anthony Spadafora for ITProPortal, February 7, 2018
https://www.itproportal.com/news/microsoft-google-unable-to-detect-new-zero-day-ransomware/

Spadafora: “The ShurL0ckr ransomware was able to avoid detection by a majority of anti-virus engines and cloud applications. As organisations have adopted cloud services to increase their productivity and agility, so to have hackers who see cloud services as the next big target for distributing malware and stealing sensitive data from businesses and individuals.”

Over a decade ago, I warned the American Dental Association leadership about EHRs’ poor security. So did ADA leadership warn Congress? Oh hell no.

“Patient records will be adequately protected through organizational policies and technical security controls.”Dr. Robert H. Ahlstrom, representing the ADA in testimony before the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS) on the benefits of EHRs in dentistry.

What is Stock Market “Front-Running”?

What is Is – How it Works

dem-at-wharton2.jpg
By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA 

 

According to Wikipedia, Front Running, also known as Tailgating, is the prohibited practice of entering into an equity (stock) trade, option, futures contract, derivative, or security-based swap to capitalize on advance, nonpublic knowledge of a large pending transaction that will influence the price of the underlying security.

Front running is considered a form of market manipulation in many markets. Cases typically involve individual brokers or brokerage firms trading stock in and out of undisclosed, unmonitored accounts of relatives or confederates. Institutional and individual investors may also commit a front running violation when they are privy to inside information. A front running firm either buys for its own account before filling customer buy orders that drive up the price, or sells for its own account before filling customer sell orders that drive down the price.

Front running is prohibited since the front-runner profits from nonpublic information, at the expense of its own customers, the block trade, or the public market.

Scandals

In 2003, several hedge fund and mutual fund companies became embroiled in an illegal late trading scandal made public by a complaint against Bank of America brought by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer. A resulting U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigation into allegations of front-running activity implicated Edward D. Jones & Co., Inc., Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Strong Mutual Funds, Putnam Investments, Invesco, and Prudential Securities.

Following interviews in 2012 and 2013, the FBI said front running had resulted in profits of $50 million to $100 million for the bank. Wall Street traders may have manipulated a key derivatives market by front running Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Term Origins

The terms originate from the era when stock market trades were executed via paper carried by hand between trading desks. The routine business of hand-carrying client orders between desks would normally proceed at a walking pace, but a broker could literally run in front of the walking traffic to reach the desk and execute his own personal account order immediately before a large client order.

Likewise, a broker could tail behind the person carrying a large client order to be the first to execute immediately after. Such actions amount to a type of insider trading, since they involve non-public knowledge of upcoming trades, and the broker privately exploits this information by controlling the sequence of those trades to favor a personal position.

Assessment

So, was front-running implicated in the market drop today? OR, a technical correction or Panic selling? Any thoughts.

Seeking University Faculty Appointment in 2018

Endowed Scholar-on-Sabbatical

dem

By David Edward Marcinko MBBS DPM MBA MEd CMP™ 

Any New Year typically brings to mind the passage of Father Time. And, it’s hard to believe I will be finishing up my current endowed R&D sabbatical after the Spring semester.

It means searching for a new faculty appointment to continue my passion for: [1] classroom teaching and junior faculty mentorship [2], university PR, outreach, promotion and grant-funding; and of course [3] more research, development, books and publications.

This competitive scholarship ethos is AKA the triad of success: “being a guide on the side – not a sage on the stage” AND “no margin – no mission” AND “publish or perish.

Employment and Subject Matter Expertise

Now, as a consummate team player, I’ve served as adjunct, to visiting, to full distinguished professor – and as department chair, to endowed chairman, online MOOC Dean and professor-of-the-practice.  Areas of specialization include: public and population health policy, management and administration; health economics, finance and insurance; and medical capitalism, innovation and free-enterprise at the graduate or doctoral levels.

And, as a former surgeon and clinician who also trained in Europe, and devotee of Nobel Laureate Ken Arrow PhD, I’m a global inter-disciplinarian within the health care industrial complex that may soon comprise 20% of domestic GDP.

Location – Location – Location

I’m pretty much private or public [mid-size] school agnostic, but prefer the Southeast, Northeast and Midwest in a livable city; with a 9-10 month faculty appointment.

But, I wouldn’t rule out a 12-month business school, or public health sciences type Dean position, as long as it is not totally administrative. A founding department chair, or inaugural deanship, would be near perfect; 24/7/365.

Crowd-Sourcing a Job?

So, I am crowd-sourcing this new job search as an emerging trend. Moreover, crowd-funding health insurance, and crowd-sourcing medical and diagnostic care is an emerging HIT trend. In fact, it’s the R&D equivalent of my current Health Dictionary Series™ WIKI project. It’s an experiment!

Regardless of the job search, check it out and tell me what you think!

Assessment

Finally, please know that I am not looking for a mere job or to climb the ladder of academia. Rather, I am seeking a university home to continue my passionate career by paying it forward as servant-leader for the next generation of business and/or public health care executives.

More Info:

If you think I might be a good fit for your university, or would just like to brainstorm ideas; give me a holler: phone: 770-448-0769; or mail: MarcinkoAdvisors@msn.com; or arrange a virtual Skype interview to “chat”. Grab yourself a cup of coffee, because I am verbose.

Serious inquirers might also want to check me out, in far-too-much-detail, here!
