We Needed New Engineering Software

When my firm needed to get new civil engineering software, they asked me if I would research different sites to get the best ones available on the market today. We could have just asked our supplier, but they know I can get quite picky about the software that we use. I am one of the main reasons why we are investing so much money for all of the engineers to have new software available. When I was trying to make some adjustments on a large project several months ago, the software was not able to perform a couple of the functions that I needed done.

Since the majority of the infrastructure is designed on a computer, it only makes sense to have the best of the best when using civil engineering software.

Accounting and Tax Help for a New Business

I just opened a new business last year, and I am worried that I am going to have a lot of trouble figuring out how to do the taxes. I actually, do not really have the slightest clue what I am doing, when it comes to filing taxes for a business. I did not even like to file my taxes, when I used to work for a company. It is going to be a lot more complicated now, and that is an issue. I want to find a accounting and tax firm that will be able to help me get through the process, and maybe explain some various things to me, that are relevant.

I am not sure why I have not looked into this sooner, because it is getting close to the time of year when I need to file my taxes, and not much has been done to work on them. That is really my fault, and it boils down to the fact that I have just been nervous and anxious about the taxes. Continue reading “Accounting and Tax Help for a New Business” »

How The GDP in 2017 Looking is? Not Good

One of the many statistics that economists pore over for clues to future economic performance is potential output, also known as potential gross domestic product. This is a measure not of what the economy is doing, but what it could be doing: an estimate of the maximum amount of GDP the economy can achieve over a sustained period if it’s operating at close to full employment, using all its resources. Any lower, and the economy isn’t working up to its potential. Any higher, and it runs a greater risk of inflation. To help guide policy, economists forecast the output gap—the difference between potential and actual GDP—for years into the future.

On Feb. 28, the Congressional Budget Office revised an estimate for potential GDP for 2017 that it had made in 2007. The new estimate is 7.3 percent lower than the original forecast. This downward revision wipes out $1.5 trillion of potential output, according to Andrew Fieldhouse, fellow at the Century Foundation, a think tank. So instead of forecasting a potential GDP of almost $20.7 trillion, the CBO predicts potential output closer to $19.2 trillion. For years economists have been expecting too much from the economy.

(businessweeks) In the weeks after Mitt Romney lost the 2012 presidential election, no Republican appeared to have a brighter future than Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Young, Spanish-speaking, and oratorically gifted, he seemed like the answer to everything ailing the GOP—he was the anti-Romney.
