6 Money Moves Every 20-Something Should Make Before Summer Is Over

Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer, is five weeks away. As you enjoy what’s left of the season a few simple steps can put you on track for a stellar financial year:

1) Track your spendings.

2) Ask for a raise…or at least prepare to. Typically, the right time to ask for a raise is about one year after your last one, or about one year after starting a new job.

3) Check in with your student loans.

4) Start planning for next summer.

Two more money moves you should make.

Trying to Make Money

So, being young and new to the photography world there isn’t people jumping in line to get their portrait made by us. Even if we would do it for $20. So, recently we’ve turned to trying 500px prime. We’re selling our best images there to try to make a little money. None of the photos have been up very long, and 500px is home to the world’s best photographers with post-editing skills out of the world, so we don’t know if anything will come of it. What we do know is that we would really appreciate you looking up 7th Street Studios and liking some photos!

Ukraine Agribusiness Firms in ‘Quiet Land Grab’ with Development Finance

Hundreds of millions of dollars in development finance from the World Bank’s investment arm have helped to fund the controversial expansion of a billionaire’s agribusiness empire in Ukraine, amid growing concern that land and farming in the country are increasingly falling into the hands of a few wealthy individuals.

Controlled by one of Ukraine’s wealthiest men, Yuriy Kosiuk, the agribusiness company Myronivsky Hliboproduct (MHP) dominates the country’s domestic poultry market and exports chicken and luxuries such as foie gras across Europe. Since 2010, it has received at least $200m (£128m) in long-term loans from the bank’s International Finance Corporation (IFC).

Much of this funding has gone to support the building of Europe’s largest industrial chicken farm in the middle of Ukraine’s rural heartland. Almost 300km south of Kiev, the Vinnytsia poultry farm is part of an audacious effort to transform the country once known as “Europe’s breadbasket” into its “meatbasket.“

What America Would Be Like Without the Federal Reserve | The Wall Street Examiner

I have a dream. Well, I had a dream, but maybe it’s never coming true, so I’ll revel in my real dream.

And what a dream it was…

America had changed overnight. I didn’t know what had happened, buteverything was different the morning I woke up (while I was, unfortunately, still in my dream).

The sky and atmosphere were different. There was a sense of clarity, of transparency.

I had to walk into town; something told me to go there.
