CIR Review: MSNBC on "Algebra of Wealth" by Anish Thota, Intern, Charlotte Latin School

In a world where financial security seems increasingly elusive for the younger generation, the fight against climate change emerges as another battleground where youth are grappling with the consequences of decisions made by older generations. The conversation above sheds light on the structural inequities embedded in the tax system, which disproportionately burden younger individuals striving to achieve economic stability. As wealth becomes concentrated in the hands of a select few, exacerbated by policies favoring capital gains and mortgage industry interests, younger Americans find themselves facing stagnant wages, unaffordable housing, and diminishing opportunities. These economic challenges intersect with the urgency of addressing climate change, as younger generations inherit a planet ravaged by environmental degradation and unchecked resource exploitation.

As young people mobilize to demand action on climate change, they are not only advocating for a sustainable future but also challenging the status quo that perpetuates economic disparities. They recognize the interconnectedness of social, economic, and environmental issues and refuse to accept a world where their opportunities are limited and their planet is endangered. By calling attention to the injustices embedded in the tax system and advocating for policies that promote both economic equity and environmental sustainability, they are challenging the narrative that prioritizes short-term gains over long-term well-being.

In essence, the fight against climate change becomes a rallying cry for generational justice, echoing the sentiments expressed in the conversation above about financial security. Just as younger individuals are demanding a fairer distribution of economic resources, they are also demanding a fairer distribution of environmental resources. Their activism signifies not only a desire for a livable planet but also a demand for a more equitable society where every generation has the opportunity to thrive.

Moreover, the disillusionment and frustration expressed by younger individuals regarding their economic prospects mirror their growing discontent with the older generation's handling of environmental issues. Just as they witness wealth accumulating at the top while their own financial futures remain uncertain, they also see environmental degradation accelerating due to decades of inaction and prioritization of profit over life. The social contract between generations, once presumed to ensure progress and prosperity for each successive cohort, appears to be breaking down as economic and environmental crises loom large.

Maternal Health Financing Facility for Black Women: A Solution to an Urgent Problem

Maternal mortality is a significant issue in the United States, with Black women disproportionately affected. Research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shown that Black women are more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than their white counterparts. However, the issue is not new, and despite the increasing amount of data available, the disparities have remained unaddressed for far too long.  Creative Investment Research (CIR) is among the organizations that believe there is a solution to the problem. Through our proposed impact investing vehicle , the Maternal Health Financing Facility for Black Women (MHFFBW), we aim to tackle the mortality gap and support Black women during childbirth, which will, in turn, benefit their communities. The Facility, based on legally binding financing agreements containing terms and conditions that direct resources to individuals and institutions capable of addressing supply-side conditions at the heart of

BRICS Summit 2023: Navigating the Transformation of Global Finance

Recent developments in the global financial landscape have captured the attention of the finance world, promising a new era of integration, transformation, and collaboration. Amidst the excitement, however, it is essential to acknowledge the formidable obstacles that stand in the way of realizing these ambitions. The 2023 BRICS Summit , slated to convene amidst this shifting landscape, is poised to be a significant juncture that could have profound implications for the future of international finance. The resurgence of Bitcoin, marked by an impressive, if smaller, year-to-date price surge, has underscored its enduring relevance. Similar concerns surround the exploration of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). The UK's digital pound initiative, while forward-looking, raises questions about stability, security, and privacy and potential economic power imbalances. The notion of a BRICS digital currency, potentially extended to include several countries, reflects a desire to chall

Projected Impact of Gun Laws on Corporate Profits in Texas

More Fortune 500 companies are located in Texas than in any other state. Texas successfully used low taxes and minimal regulations as bait to recruit companies like Tesla and Oracle. The state promoted these “advantages” in ads highlighting their “free-market” environment and criticizing the "tax and spend policies of liberal leadership" in Democrat-run states. Four million people migrated to Texas over the past ten years. Our economic models predict a reversal, however. State of Texas corporations on the Fortune 1000 list generate $2.2 trillion in revenue, $158 billion in profit. They have a market value of $3.8 trillion and employ 2.5 million people nationwide. We continue to believe this increased corporate presence in Texas imposes a tax on the nation as a whole. Texas allows anyone 21 or older to carry handguns without training or licenses, and maintains lower gun purchase age limits. Beyond the recent abortion bill, which allows people to sue those who "aid and abe
