Steady economic growth, rising asset prices, and a restrained rate of inflation are retiring Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s legacy as she gets ready to leave the central bank early next year. This is what all Street loosely refers to as a “Goldilocks” economic scenario, the best of all possible worlds. “At the moment the U.S. economy is performing well.
“Junk” is what we used to call high-yield bonds used to finance hostile takeovers in the 1980s, and made famous by investment banker Michael Milken of Drexel Burnham Lambert, a firm that fittingly no longer exists, ruined by its very own corrupt greed. Today “JUNK” is a play on at Lincoln Center that takes a melodramatic license with the 1980s, suggesting that Wall Street might very well be a dangerous enclave of people, devoid of morality, who would sell their own mother to make a buck.
As tax experts, top-line economists and business school run their models on the Republican tax bill, the early conclusion is that a huge gain in economic growth is doubtful at best, and that the additional $1.5 trillion in debt being created will cause a major dangerous increase in the federal budget deficit. Thus, the whole rationale for the bill that a 20% corporate tax would trigger more economic activity and job creation doesn’t appear too likely if these experts are to be believed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
