Long thread on upcoming #JobsDay

This Friday, BLS will release new data showing how many jobs were gained—or lost—in July. This data is critical for understanding whether the economy is in recovery or if it’s stalling.

The forecasts are mixed.
We expect weak data on the jobs front because of the rise in covid cases across the country, which has led consumers to stay home and policymakers to enforce more social distancing and closures.…
As @ernietedeschi explains in this thread, forecasters looking at new data predict BLS data will show that the economy has either added or shed about 1 million jobs in July 3/

BREAKING NEWS: New Broad U.S. Survey: A Second Wave of U.S. Layoffs and Furloughs is Well Under Way
CARES Act benefit extension is critical to avoiding deeper economic catastrophe.
New layoffs also in states that are NOT reporting a surge in COVID-19:
Study and poll with over 6,400 US respondents in real time (data as of August 1st) conclusively demonstrates that workers previously laid off and re-payrolled are being laid off again as #PPP money is exhausted/businesses fail.

THREAD: Over 3,000 businesses that received $1BN in #PPP have since closed permanently.

Expect Democrats to be demanding MORE oversight & pressing Treasury/SBA to enforce repayment of these funds and/or investigations into what these businesses were.
It’s possible that some took the money and it just was not enough to survive, but given how quickly they already closed, it’s worth investigating.
PPP data on loans less than $150k has still not been made public. The “privacy” rationale makes no sense. These are the exact same loans that were given in larger sums of money- business loans.

SMQ shared in his speech in the National Assembly today the joint demands of #PMLN and #PPP about amendments to the NAB law that they have made a condition to supporting the government's #FATF related legislation package. Very revealing of their agenda. Here's what they want...
Four FATF related bills are extremely urgent. They need to be passed before the APG review, which will drive whether the plenary in October decides to keep Pakistan in the grey or pushes us to "white list" status. Of course, the threat of being black listed continues to exist.
The FATF requirements are time-bound, and the NA session has been extended to accommodate it. But the opposition parties are insisting on a "package deal" with changes to NAB laws. After not having done anything for ten years while in power, this has suddenly become very urgent.

Lots to digest in the R's latest stimulus proposal. Here are just a few of the more interesting tidbits w/ respect to the #PPP program (including a proposed PPP2):

(Note: Just a PROPOSAL at this point. Rs + Ds still need agreement before anything will get passed.

1) More...

expenses will be eligible uses for PPP proceeds (and eligible for forgiveness), including PPE and other expenses incurred to comply w/ COVID safety guidelines.

2) Borrower could choose covered period of their choice between 8 weeks and 12/31/20. I see this primarily as a...

way to allow biz owners to exhaust PPP funds, and then immediately furlough, terminate, etc. employees w/out impacting their forgiveness formula.

3) Loans under $150k (OVERWHELMING MAJORITY) would be automatically forgiven w/ borrower self-certification.

4) Wow... loans...

وہ مقدمات کس موڑ پر ہیں؟

ڈاکٹر عاصم حسین کا تعارف
ڈاکٹر عاصم حسین کا شمار آصف علی زرداری کے قریب ترین دوستوں میں ہوتا ہے۔ ڈاکٹر عاصم حسین کراچی میں موجود ضیاءالدین گروپ آف ہاسپٹلز کے چیئرمین ہیں
آصف زرداری نے انہیں 2008 میں پیپلزپارٹی کے ٹکٹ پر سندھ سے سینیٹر منتخب کروایا اور پھر انہیں وفاقی وزیر پٹرولیم و قدرتی وسائل اور وزیراعظم کا مشیر برائےپٹرولیم بنا دیا۔ 2012میں سپریم کورٹ کی طرف سےجب دہری شہریت رکھنے والے اراکین پارلیمنٹ کو نااہل قرار دیا گیا تو انہوں نے بطور
مشیر اپنے دونوں عہدوں سے استعفیٰ دے دیا جس کے بعد آصف زرداری نے ڈاکٹر عاصم کو چیئرمین آف ہائیر ایجوکیشن کمشن آف پاکستان، سندھ اور چیئرمین آف پٹرولیم انسٹیٹیوٹ آف پاکستان بنا دیا

ڈاکٹر عاصم پر 3⃣ بڑے مقدمات ہیں

I said from day one that the #PPP would be rife with fraud. None of the 600 asset management firms that got "loans" needed the money. They got paid to retain workers they had no intention of firing. I could have taken the free money myself, but didn't want to lie to obtain it.
Asset management firms like mine were not shut down. Our employees worked from home, none of our revenue stopped coming in, and soaring asset prices actually resulted in more revenue after #COVID19 than before. The #PPP money merely added to the windfall. It was a total fraud.
In fact, every government that ordered businesses to close, exempted financial services companies from those orders as the services they provide were deemed to be essential. So, even if some employees were not able to work from home, they still had access to their offices.

Had a client just hit the end of his 8-week #PPP initial covered period. Would get full forgiveness based on usage of the funds. Wants to just use the 8-week period. I've advised him against it... (1/2)

Reason being? Freaking QBI.

$700k #PPP
$100k non-PR costs
$600k PR costs ($575k gross PR)

If I take the 24-week period, I get the following:

$700k PPP
$300k non-PR costs
$400k PR costs ($325k gross PR)

(2/3 -- lied about just 2 posts)

Deductibility is the problem here (for now). If we lose the deduction for that $575k in wages (we shouldn't), that's $115k in QBID that goes away. If we use the 24-wk period, that $325k in wages only costs $65k QBID.

Saving $50k QBID/$18k income taxes w/ this. (3/3)

Alrighty then... Kids are asleep, and dinner is done. So time to breakdown Congress's latest 'gift' to small business owners, and the tax and financial planning community.

It's called the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (Full Text:…)...

Now unless you've been sleeping under a rock for the past 68 days (yes, that's the exact number of days it's been since the CARES Act was passed... though it feels more like 84 years to many of us), you've heard about the #PPP program and probably know the basics. But...

...if in fact you have been hiding under that rock, you can get the basics here:…

But a word of warning, thanks to the new PPP Flex Act, a lot of that info is now outdated!

The #HeroesAct, the #coronavirus bill we are voting on today, contains several important priorities I fought for. While the bill could go further, I’m pleased with much of what we secured. 1/12
The bill boosts funds for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (#SNAP) by 15%. In my district, I’ve seen lines at local food banks. Families need this assistance. 2/12
It provides a second round of more substantial economic stimulus payments consisting of $1,200 per family member, and up to $6,000 per household to ease the financial burden that many are experiencing due to #COVID19. 3/12

Some MAJOR #PPP news to pass along. Earlier today @USTreasury updated the FAQs on its site (AGAIN!), by creating new Q&A #46.

In short, Q&A #46 creates a safe harbor for PPP loans of $2 million or less when it comes to the good-faith certification...…

Just to be clear, we're talking about the certification that a borrower must make that says:

"current economic uncertainty makes this loan request necessary to support the ongoing operations"

In short, Q&A #46 the safe harbor says that if you received a loan of...

...$2 million or less (including loans made to affiliated companies), the certification will be deemed valid. Period. End of story.

The logic behind this, per Q&A #46, is to "promote economic certainty" for borrowers and to...

New Guidance for #PPP: To get maximum forgiveness you'll need to sacrifice a goat during a blood moon, at the stroke of midnight, while wearing a crown of thorns and Luke Skywalker's robes, and only after reciting pi in it's entirety.

Subject to additional guidance.
Additional Guidance: after additional consideration, you do not need to sacrifice the goat. Businesses who have already sacrificed the goat will be severely punished. Instead, businesses much sacrifice a dodo bird. /2
Additional Guidance: Upon discovering that dodo birds no longer exist there is no animal sacrifice required. Businesses that have already sacrificed a goat are still to be severely penalized. Penalty TBD /3

THREAD: When you look at the market reaction, there are a couple very concerning things.

It can fuel this OBVIOUS falsehood that the market = the economy.

But, it also takes the pressure off President Trump to do more to support the financial hemorrhaging happening.
You can already see it with Republicans and the White House (Kudlow said it today) wanting to pump the brakes on more financial support.
Consider: the ✈️ industry (which has access to raise $ in the cap markets) got a bespoke bailout deal & a defecto airline bailout czar in Mnuchin
- these companies got a tax cut in ‘17 & poured their free $ flow into buybacks over last few yrs
- charged more for bags & leg room
