In this cool chart from Visual Capitalist, Reddit, and the US Census Bureau, household income is divided by income levels.

It is organized from lowest to highest income over $150k.

How far $100 will go in each State

Scanning the last few states from the above chart one can easily conclude many of the higher income states, ALSO cost more to live in.

This from the Tax Foundation!

Financial Literacy and the Cost

The cost of higher education has continued to rise, along with it, interesting statistics.

The stress levels at the end of the chart are most interesting to us!

Most and Least Trusted Media Sources

We did not make this, so please do not yell at us if you disagree…haha

We do find this very interesting.

This chart was part of a report from our friends at Visual Capitalist, who were actually reviewing a study completed by the Donald W Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri.

According to 8,728 people in 28 different areas… Here are the results !

Social Media Legend – Two Cool Comparitive Charts … 2008 versus today … Enjoy your weekend!

Social Media in it's broadest definition touches us all in one way or another.

You reading this, and us publishing, is a form of social media!

We found it very interesting to see what Social Media looked like nearly a decade ago.

From the cool sight of Visual Capitalist and authors noted:

Social Media Legend 2008

Of course a lot has changed … lot's of mergers, deaths and faded memories!

Social Media Today

We are interested in reviewing as many of these are news to us.

Enjoy your weekend!

How we spend our Money, a 75 year comparison….

A while back I wrote an article for credit.com which included a section on spending habits and the amount of funds we spend on different items in this country. (Here is the full article.)

From our friends at Howmuch.net and Visual Capitalist

This updated and more neatly compiled chart shows our spending trends over the past 75 years.

how-americans-spent-their-money-in-the-last-75-years__f_-f285

Scanning the chart from left to right, can you tell which has risen the most?

Of course, far right… Would that be Healthcare? … With all the banter, surely .. Nope!

How about Food? It certainly costs more to feed a family these days … Nope!

Housing, you got it, Housing costs have soared … this fits into our mantra of the latest Newsletter main theme

Be careful out there!

Have a Great Day!

The Importance of Energy Companies to the US Economy

Not so many quarters ago with oil booming and the price of oil going to $144/barrel many including ourselves may have missed the importance of Energy Companies on the US as well as global economy.

Here  we reiterated that we thought the trickle down effect may be much greater than many had once thought.

Another Great View from Visual Capitalist

Take a moment to let this chart digest…it truly is amazing.

If you have been following us long you know we love to mix different opinions especially when they point the same direction- this from Factset..

Without Energy, the S&P 500 earnings would be much less.

Before complaining about that fill up… remember these two items.

Have a Great “Energy Growth” day!
