INSIDE THE GIANT
What's the solution?

 It’s one of those nagging problems that we tend to ignore when the stock market is at record highs and unemployment reassuringly low. The fact is, consumer debt is no less an issue – and, in many ways, should generate more concern – during the good times.

The persistence of burdensome debt after a recovery underscores systemic problems. Jobs still fly to other countries amid the rosy numbers. College still gets more expensive and student debt accelerates. In some ways, prosperity can even guarantee a worsening debt crisis when, for example, neighborhoods gentrify and resident populations of homeowners and small businesses cannot keep up.

Such dynamics may help explain recent data from The Center for Microeconomic Data. Earlier this year, the CMD, an arm of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York that centralizes the collection and analysis of microeconomic data, found a 0.9% increase in total household debt, reaching a historic high of $12.84 trillion. While the percentage increase may seem modest, serious credit card delinquencies rose for the third straight quarter, a trend that has not been seen since 2009 – which, as you’ll recall, was right after an economic collapse.

The CMD findings are in synch with a Harris poll conducted in April for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC). The NFCC 2017 Consumer Financial Literacy Survey found significantly more consumers carrying credit card debt from month to month, while nearly…

INSIDE THE GIANT

Anda and Savile Row Bespoke outdid themselves yesterday, at the second The English Gentleman event. Held in the pavilion of Lord’s, there were dozens of suits on display from 19 different Savile Row houses. Most importantly, many of them had spent the time and money making the suits for the models, so the fit was impeccable.
For those that have never had the privilege of visiting it, it is hard to describe the quiet majesty of the Long Room at Lord’s (above). Beautiful raised chairs, enormous sash windows, with a few other spectators and a white picket fence between you and some of the best sport in the world.
Highlights among the suits included Chittleborough & Morgan’s peaked-lapel worsted grey, and the Anderson & Sheppard linen worn by everyone from John Hitchcock to Dougray Scott.
Indeed, for all the shimmering styling of the suits on the models, some of the best dressed were the guests, with Michael Browne of C&M wearing his navy seersucker and both Anda Rowland and Audie Charles from A&S in beautifully coordinated outfits. If anyone wants to know how to wear tailoring without appearing stiff, look no further than these two when they’re in a jacket.

I understand the challenge of dealing with life’s trials and tribulations because I lived through many of them. My story is not about getting knocked down; it is a story about getting up again… As a child I was the only African American student in many childhood classrooms.

There have been reports of more clowns in more cities spotted lurking in the woods. In the past month, police in the Carolinas have received multiple reports from people claiming clowns with white-painted faces were acting strangely in the area – at least once attempting to lure kids into the woods with money. The reports have fueled speculation that the sightings could be a hoax, or possibly even morbid fans trying to promote the 2017

This morning, the Senate unveiled their Obamacare repeal plan. Unsurprisingly, it’s just as cruel as the irresponsible bill the House passed in May.

Here’s what we know so far about this bill: It would…
Insure fewer Americans than the current law and raise costs for millions more
End Medicaid as we know it
Eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood
Health care is complicated. But the devastating impacts of this bill are not: If it passes, lives will be on the line.

We’re down to the wire, and we all need to do something — anything — to make a difference.

Here are three ways to be heard: Get in touch with a key senator directly by making a call right now, write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, or pitch in to fund the work ahead in the next few weeks. OFA volunteers continue to push back against congressional leaders’ disastrous Obamacare repeal plan — help them now:
