From Business Insider the following pull-quotes on topics that the Daily Business News has been covering for over a year.

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak spoke to Business Insider at the WeAreDevelopers World Congress in Vienna, Austria.

  • Wozniak said he was “bothered by what technology has become.
  • He hinted that the breakup of big tech monopolies may be necessary or useful.
  • Wozniak: “All big companies lie to make money on some level. They withhold secrets — it’s not news. I don’t look at it and say to myself: “This is a big thing,” he told Business Insider.
  • Steve Wozniak: In a company like Apple that made computers easy to use, I always thought that the user was more important than the technology. We put a lot of effort into letting people live their lives in a normal, human way.”
  • Steve Wozniak: “But that “human way” is changing. We used to be able to have conversations in secret with people. If I were to say something to you in private now, others wouldn’t hear it — that isn’t the case anymore. We lost our security a long time ago. We’ve lost our privacy and it’s been abused. If I think I have a level of privacy that I don’t, that’s deceit. And that bothers me. I hit a limit. I can’t take that. It’s one step in a long series of steps that are all in the same direction.”

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Manufacturing in general, and production and new building centers in manufactured housing in specific has been making news. The growth of all manufacturing jobs is good for the sellers of manufactured housing, as quarterly statements from publicly trade manufactured housing producers often reflect.
The latest data, per a release from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), makes it clear that factories are expanding, investing, hiring more, and paying more.

U.S. manufacturers are hiring more workers, boosting wages and increasing domestic investments following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” per Fox Business.

According to a survey by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) “Seventy-two percent of manufacturers are ramping up workers’ wages and benefits, according to a new survey from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). Meanwhile, 77% of survey respondents said they were hiring more workers, while 86% are investing more in plants and equipment.”

Numerous reports of new production centers, and increased production among manufactured housing producers underscores those facts.  See an example of linked reports, above the Jay Timmons photo, below

Manufacturing in America is now rising to new heights, thanks to tax reform, and as a result, manufacturers of all sizes are already investing more, growing more, hiring more and paying more. They are already improving lives and livelihoods,” NAM Board Chair David Farr said in a statement.

Optimism is rising.  “More than 93% of manufacturers have a positive outlook on their company’s prospects in the U.S. economy – the second-highest level ever recorded by the National Association of Manufacturers –  its most recent quarterly survey revealed,” said Fox Business.

  • Wage growth among those manufacturers surveyed last month also rose at the fastest pace in 17 years, despite remaining sluggish in the broader U.S. economy.
  • Manufacturers expected full-time employment to increase by 2.9% on average over the next year, an all-time high by the survey’s standards.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

A new tax approved by the Seattle City Council late Monday will have a negative impact on businesses in the area, experts say, which could mean a reduction in both hiring and wages,” reports Fox Business.

The private sector will respond in a negative way to the new head tax, in this case with less hiring and modestly reduced wages,” said Chris Edwards, director of tax policy studies at the Cato Institute.

As the Daily Business News previously reported, the controversial tax has split unions and others in the “progressive” city.  Part of the oddity of this scenario is that no one – including the supporters of the new tax plan – claim that this levy will actually solve the growing problems of homelessness or the shortage of affordable housing.

Two of the city’s biggest employers – e-commerce giant Amazon and coffee retailer Starbucks – have come out in opposition to the measure.

The [Seattle] tax comes out to 14 cents per employee per hour, or $275 per employee, per year, on for-profit companies that net at least $20 million annually,” said Fox Business. “It was unanimously approved by the city council’s board members.”

The story also highlights the negative impact of tax hikes, and by implication, the positive impact of tax cuts.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The numbers below are from MarketWatch, but the same data can be found from a variety of sources.

What’s going to be surprising-to-some is that the tax cuts that boosted federal revenues for Presidents Jack Kennedy (D) and Ronald Reagan (R), has provided another early reward to the Trump Administration too.

A federal surplus for the month. 

Here are the facts.

 

The Numbers:

The U.S. took in $510 billion in receipts in April and spent $296 billion, leaving the Treasury with a record monthly surplus of $214 billion. The prior record, set in April 2001, was about $190 billion,” per MarketWatch.

 

What Happened:

Tax receipts poured in during April, when tax returns and certain taxpayers’ quarterly estimated payments are due. Individual receipts climbed by $66 billion over last April, something the Congressional Budget Office has attributed to stronger-than-expected income growth in 2017, as well as “larger-than-anticipated payments for economic activity in 2018.”

That surplus occurred even though spending rose in April.  It rose 8%, due to higher payments on Social Security and interest on the public debt.

The projections are still for a deficit this year.  But the norms of history suggest that continued economic growth will in time reduce that budget gap. With a combination of rising federal receipts, adding some fiscal discipline, and other plans advocated by the Trump Administration for economic growth continue to take hold, the outlook is hopeful.

Of course, any number of factors could provide wrinkles to the plan and time line. But the fact that receipts are up over last year, after a big tax cut should be a wakeup call for all of those who failed to understand the historic lessons being applied by the Trump tax cut team.

It goes without saying that a healthy economy is good for the nation, and the manufactured housing industry. The Daily Business News will continue to monitor this topic.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

HyperloopEconomist

Elon Musk’s LA tunnel for the hyperloop is almost finished, reports CNN Money and others in media.

It represents Musk’s plan to beat Los Angeles traffic.

Musk, is known for Tesla, Space X and is the founder of the Boring Company.  He announced late Thursday the tunneling startup has nearly finished building its first stretch of a Los Angeles tunnel.

The tunnel will be a key component of its loop transport system, which will move people in their own cars or passenger “pods” for bicyclists and pedestrians. The high-speed system will allow people to bypass LA traffic, and thus get around the city faster.

But it is also a possible vision into how commuters from outside a metro could move more quickly into a city to do their work.  That would allow workers to buy homes – including manufactured homes – further out, where land and other costs would be lower.

Musk stated that the public will be offered free rides on his Loop service in the upcoming months, once the Boring company receives regulatory approval.

 

The company has sought a permit for a 2.7-mile tunnel in busy West Los Angeles, but its overall vision includes a 60-mile tunnel network that would be one of the largest subway networks in the United States.

Musk said pedestrians and cyclists will receive priority access to the tunnels, and that access will cost less than a bus ticket.

Two videos give you more insights, the first is pithy, the second is more in depth and gives added background to hyperloop.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

CNN Money’s mostly right on this report, per other sources, and there is enough correct where the report is worth sharing.  The issue is CNN making the claim overly broad, about rural areas losing population.  Some areas are, others are not.

For example, Pew Research said about a year ago that there is a move toward more rural areas, so there is at least a dispute on that issue.

That some communities are losing population is not in dispute.

What is certain is that there are rural towns and counties that pay you to move there, or give other incentives. This might be useful information to marketers of manufactured and modular homes.

According to Brookings, the “US population disperses to suburbs, exurbs, rural areas, and “middle of the country” metros, per William H. Frey on Monday, March 26, 2018.”

So CNN could be wrong overall on the move away from rural areas, but that these towns, counties or even a state are giving people incentives, that’s a fact at this time.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Uber is releasing new information about Uber Air, an ambitious plan to launch a fleet of autonomous flying taxis in two years,” says CBS News. “Bianna Golodryga gets a first look at the design models that will be on display at Tuesday’s Uber Elevate Summit. She also speaks with Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden.”

Why does this prospect potentially matter to manufactured housing?

As the nation’s population is mostly urban and suburban – and if HUD continues to fail to enforce manufactured housing’s “enhanced preemption” – then modes of transportation that could speed people from exurbs into the metro are promising for manufactured housing growth.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Stocks were little changed Tuesday after President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would pull out of the Iran deal championed by his predecessor, Barack Obama,” said Fox Business.

According to Trump, the deal allowed Iran to continue developing nuclear weapons, and he called the country the “leading state sponsor of terror,” per their report.

President Trump added that “we will be reinstating the highest level of sanctions.”

Stocks were lower immediately before Trump’s announcement, with the Dow down by about 60 points. They turned mixed in the aftermath of Trump’s comments, with the Dow swinging between gains and losses,” per their report.

If the president is as successful with this move as it appears he has been with North Korea, it could end up a net boost to the economy, although there is certain to be some related turbulence ahead.  Stay tuned.
