How the Recession of 2020 Could Happen
These three things are all true: The United States almost certainly isn’t in a recession right now. It may well avoid one for the foreseeable future. But the chances that the nation will fall into recession have increased sharply in the last two weeks.
That is the unmistakable message that global investors in the bond market are sending. Longer-term interest rates have plunged since the end of July — a shift that historically tends to predict slower growth, interest rate cuts from the Federal Reserve, and a heightened risk that the economy slips into outright contraction.
This is happening in an economy that, by most indicators, is solid. The United States economy is growing at a roughly 2 percent rate and keeps adding jobs at a healthy clip. There is no sign of the kind of huge, obvious bubbles that triggered the last two recessions, the equivalent of dot-com stocks in 2000 or housing in 2007.
So if there’s going to be a recession in 2020 — if the pessimistic signals in the financial markets prove correct — how would it happen? There are plenty of clues, in the details of recent economic reports, in signals from the markets, and in the recent history of recessions and near recessions.

Cannabis is big business in Colorado, and the industry continues to grow at breakneck speed.
The number of licenses awarded to businesses selling weed in retail stores has increased every year since voters approved the legal use of marijuana in 2014. But the question remains: What is the tipping point for market saturation?
The number of licenses the state has awarded to marijuana retailers has increased from 440 in August 2016 to 571 for the same month this year, according to the Colorado Department of Revenue Marijuana Enforcement Division.
On the cultivation side, the number of licenses the state issued to companies growing marijuana increased from 583 in August 2016 to 739 in August 2018 before dropping down to 699 on Aug. 1…

Pizza Giants Take Radically Different Tacks When It Comes To Online Delivery
For pizza makers, order delivery used to be simple. Customers would call the pizza joint, then wait for a delivery person to show up. Now online ordering, which is revolutionizing the fast-casual and fast-food restaurant business as a whole, is impacting the giant pizza chains, as well as smaller operators, with unclear results for the restaurants.
In particular, the No. 1 and No. 2 U.S. pizza brands, Pizza Hut and Domino`s Pizza, are taking opposite approaches to online orders…
This Company Is Changing the Real Estate Investment Game
They say the best investment on earth is earth, but more often than not, only the 1 percent — or anyone who has the capability to cough up millions — gets to have the chance to grow a profit through real estate.
But a company called DiversyFund
has devised a way to lower the barrier and allow everyone who previously had no access to investing in real estate to create a diversified portfolio of real estate assets.
For as little as $500, you can invest in DiversyFund`s commercial real estate investment trust (REIT), which is composed of projects personally handpicked by a team of professionals. They only purchase properties they deem would yield high returns, which they would then manage, renovate, and sell. The profits, of course, would be split among the investors a.k.a you.
Ken Notes: We really need to create a Wisconsin REIT that would provide funds to developers and investment opportunities for everyone.

Is Real Estate Crowdfunding a Good Investment?
to build wealth. That’s why there’s no shortage of people who long to buy a home and watch its value rise over time. There are the landlords willing to manage years of tenants in exchange for an eventual return on
their purchase. And then there are the folks you see on TV who buy houses to flip seeking a seemingly near-instant profit.
Even if buying a home doesn’t match up with your personal vision of the American Dream, you may still want to consider investing in real estate. And buying a piece of property outright is no longer your only option for investing. Real estate crowdfunding is yet another way you can diversify your investment portfolio, often for less of an up-front expenditure..

McDonald`s just launched its first new type of restaurant since the drive-thru — here`s what it`s like to eat there
- McDonald`s recently launched its first “McDonald`s to Go” restaurant in London. It has no seating areas and serves only takeout.
- It`s the first new format for a McDonald`s restaurant since the drive-thru.
- The new restaurant replaces cashiers with touchscreens and is stripped of decor and furniture.
As technology becomes more integrated into our lives, businesses are having to rapidly adapt to consumer demand for speed and efficiency.
McDonald`s is no exception.
The fast-food chain is reportedly opening a fleet of new restaurants that aim to feed customers faster by serving exclusively takeout. It`s been described as McDonald`s first new restaurant format since it introduced the drive-thru in the 1970s…

NYU professor calls WeWork `WeWTF,` says any Wall Street analyst who believes it`s worth over $10 billion is `lying, stupid, or both`
- Scott Galloway, the best-selling author and well-known tech-industry pundit, is a professor of marketing at New York University`s Stern School of Business.
- He analyzed WeWork`s S-1 filing as the company prepares for an initial public offering under its new name, The We Company.
He summarized most of the major criticisms that have been lobbed at the
company: its losses, culture, corporate structure, and disclosures about its business dealings with its founder-CEO, Adam Neumann.
- But Galloway, in his customary shoot-from-the-hip style, takes it further: He also criticized the bankers involved in this deal, writing they “stand to register $122 million in fees flinging feces at retail investors.”
- The following is his blog post in full, republished by permission. It originally ran on his own blog, “No Mercy / No Malice.”
I`ve started nine firms and I`m, generously, 3-4-2 (win-lose-tie). In retrospect, and I think about this a lot, the only reliable forward-looking indicator of our firm`s success or failure was … timing. Specifically, the part of the economic cycle at founding.
