Venezuela Has a National Assemblyman Who Cares


Jose Gonzalez is one of Venezuela’s National Assembly leaders who condemns half measures when it comes to fixing the very real problems the socialist democratic country is facing. He points out that many of the current populist government of Venezuela issue edicts which are completely unrealistic and unenforceable as law. One such recent law change that seemed quite positive, on the face of it, was a raise in the country’s minimum wage. His practical views have made him one of the most trusted leaders in Brazil. His dedication to ending corruption in the National Assembly has ended up taking too much of his time, but he believes good progress is being made.

Jose Manuel Gonzalez is completely dedicated to being the most-effective leader for his countrymen as he can. And, he does correctly blame the people who are still desperately clinging to populism as the base of all the country’s still outstanding issues. For instance, he points out that that trade embargo placed on his country is directly attributable to the populist policies. He works hard to increase the success of all the myriad small businesses located throughout his homeland. He just will no longer put up with half-baked, pie-in-the-sky solutions to real problems that need real solutions that actually work.

Jose Manuel Gonzalez is a strong and fair leader who did not originally seek any role in leadership. However, his expertise in the agricultural sector promoted his appearance as a National Assemblyman. He has led the country in fixing the problems with food production and improving Brazil’s huge aggro exporting business. He has proved to be a most-dedicated public servant that the majority of the populace approve of. It is likely that Gonzalez will become even more important as many of his innovative solutions lead Venezuela through its current challenges. This will be especially in the agriculture sector.

Relmada Seeks $20 Million For Harm Done by Laidlaw


Starting in 2015, Laidlaw took steps to make a hostile takeover against Relmada. Relmada was successful in defending itself against Laidlaw but not without suffering significant damages to the value of its stock price in the process. Relmada estimates that it suffered $75 million in damages due to Laidlaw’s nefarious activity. It is going to court to ask a judge to award it $20 million to make up for its severe losses.

Laidlaw issued a statement in which it claimed that Relmada had denied a request by a potential investor for due diligence. Laidlaw also stated that Relmada had tried to attract institutional capital from investors but had not been able to do so. These claims made by Laidlaw are false and they were made for the purpose of damaging Relmada so that Laidlaw could perform a hostile takeover once the value of Relmada’s stock dropped significantly.

There is ample evidence to back up the claim that Laidlaw had been plotting against Relmada for a long time. The two companies once had a mutually respectful and beneficial relationship. Starting back in 2011, Relmada hired Laidlaw to be its financial advisor. Relmada is a clinical pharmaceutical company that is publicly traded and it requires financial advisement in order to navigate the stock and pharmaceutical markets. for 3 years Relmada was satisfied with Laidlaw, but in 2015 it became apparent that Laidlaw was acting with self-interest. The first evidence was when Laidlaw began to charge Relmada large fees for financial services that were of no value to Relmada. This may have been an attempt to gain more information that would be useful in a takeover attempt. Then Laidlaw placed a board member on Relmada’s board of directors who criminally withheld relevant information from Relmada.

Brad Reifler Talks About “The Money Monster” With George Clooney


Money Monster seems like a movie of our times. A charismatic stock guru slings out investing advice on TV only to incur the wrath of an investor who took him to be a financial wizard, and he takes the show hostage in order to uncover the truth behind the lies he so readily believed. It says a lot about current anxieties surrounding the finance and money in general that Money Monster has attracted so much attention. In many ways, the regulations surrounding investing are set up to give the most wealthy among us all the advantages and keep most of the 99% from being able to access any investment options at all. CEO of Forefront Capital Brad Reifler is one of the few financial advisors who’ve made strides to help the average American access investment options, and he’s pointed out the reasons why it’s such a rarity.

When it comes to Wall St., part of what keeps them appearing as though they understand markets is the fact that they’re wealthy. But part of what keeps them rich are the fees that are paid out to them regardless of the results they manage to produce for their clients.

This boost in one’s annual income allows them to reach the status of accredited investor, which allows them an air of authority, allowing them to invest in private equity and funds regardless of their level of knowledge in investing.

With these rules in place, too many investors will continue to make a profitable living from investing the money of others regardless of what they’re able to do for their clients, making the relationship between the two parties imbalanced and many from being able to invest at all. The longer that continues, the more distrust will grow concerning Wall St.

About Brad Reifler:

Bradley Reifler is the founder and CEO of Forefront Capital Advisors, offering financial services through its many subsidiaries to influential clients all over the world. This has allowed Forefront to develop an impressive portfolio that is maintained through personalizing business relationships.

With a structure that helps more people access investment plans, Bloomberg writes that Reifler has made it possible to mitigate risks at lower expense in the market. Be sure to also follow Brad on Twitter @Bradley_R.

Nutrimost Fights Back


Nutrimost was recently attacked in one of the worst ways possible for a weight loss program company: their promotional video was stolen by another weight loss company that claimed the results found from Nutrimost were actually from their product line. They stole the video from the Nutrimost company and they used it to their own benefit. The video included testimonials from customers as well as medical professionals who are fully supportive of the Nutrimost company. These people did not use the diet product from the website that stole the Nutrimost video, but the company made it look as if they had used this knock-off product to gain the same results that people had seen from using Nutrimost.

 

The Nutrimost diet program is one that is set up differently than many others. It combines several different components to ensure that people are able to use the most amount of weight possible and it promises users that they will be able to finally see the results that they desire from using a weight loss supplement. The company has worked to show people that they are able to get what they need from the program without having to go to extreme measures. They have always made sure that their clients are comfortable and that they actually see results from using the system.

 

As a company that wants to ensure the most in their customers’ satisfaction, Nutrimost has gone to great lengths to make sure that they provide a product that is able to satisfy their clients and help them meet their weight loss goals. They want everyone to know that they do not support the website on which the stolen video was used and that their products are of a much higher quality than the ones that are on that site.
