In January the Guardian asked me to review a set of tax facts regarding a prominent couple, not telling me who it was.  Later in February I learned that the story involved former Olympic ice dancing champion Tatiana Navka, who is married to Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s longtime press secretary and the Kremlin’s deputy chief of staff.

Although there were certainly legitimate concerns here,  it is surprising how much news is being created to disparage Russia and Russian interests when in reality issues surrounding Chinese companies operating in the U.S. is much more concerning.

Geoffrey Berman then made two major decisions, the first was to recuse himself from the Michael Cohen investigation and the second was to hire Robert Khuzami from Kirkland Ellis, who by default now leads the investigation.

Berman clearly knew there were major legal issues coming regarding Trump and Cohen and the question has to be asked, was Khuzami installed by Berman to be Trump’s “fixer?”

While the media is sensationalizing Intel CEO Brian Krzanich’s recent stock sales as unusual given the recently disclosed security weakness in Intel’s chips,  a closer look reveals excellent tax planning, to the benefit of the company.naturalizer Mina Flat Comfort Loafers, Whiskey, 8.5 US / 38.5 EUNine West Xalan Casual Loafer Flats, Wine Velvet, 6.5 US.

One of the key changes in the new tax law, a good one, is to expand the definition of compensation subject to the annual $1 million limit with respect to receiving a tax deduction.  Previously, only cash compensation was subject to the limit yet now all equity based compensation is also included, including stock options.Stuart Weitzman Retutor Black Nappa Loafer Size 7.5M in Original Box...NICE!Merrell Duskair Maui MJ Leather Canteen Women's Sizes 8.5 & 9.5 Shoes J45842 NEW.

In order to understand Robert Mercer’s brilliant financial engineering,  let’s begin our analysis using three outstanding local Portland beers.  They are Rogue Brewery’s Shakespeare Stout, Widmer’s Hefeweizen and Deschutes Breweries Fresh Squeezed IPA.El Naturalista Womens N301 Torcal Mary Jane Shoes, Brown, 37 EU/7 B(M)

All three beers are distributed by Portland based Columbia Distributing, one of the nations largest beer distributors, which was purchased by the Jim Simons controlled investment fund Meritage in 2012.  Simons along with Robert Mercer is Co-CEO of the $100 billion Rentec hedge fund.Stuart Weitzman Tulip Bow Snake Embossed Beige Patent Leather Ballet Flats 10 M

See prior September 18. 2017 blog post  for important background regarding PERS adoption of age weighted IAP accounts.

Once again, it appears that younger workers are being short changed by PERS in the adoption of age weighted IAP accounts.  Remarkably, there was no opportunity for public discussion on vendor selection or strategy regarding how the age based portfolios would be constructed.

Rather, it was announced in September that the French insurance conglomerate AXA’s subsidiary Alliance Bernstein, what some call the AIG of France, would be awarded the contract to manage more than $8.2 billion in participants IAP accounts.   Some will argue that this isn’t really an $8.2 billion contract since it will simply involve reshuffling assets among participants internally.  My thought would be, tell that to the participants.
