Week In Review

From Tax Cuts to the Top Of the Charts…

Whitney Houston Topping Charts

In the wake of Whitney Houston’s tragic passing, her fabulous voice has been filling the airways again and sales are skyrocketing.  But as we’ve learned this past week, it’s the songwriter – not the singer – who stands to financially benefit the most from this renewed interest in Whitney.  Which means that a very sad week is ending up in a very big payday for Miss Dolly Parton – who wrote Whitney’s biggest hit, “I Will Always Love You.”

$88 Million Apartment

Former Citigroup CEO Sanford Weill just sold his Central Park West Penthouse for $88 million – making it the most expensive home in NYC.  But what makes it really Fabulous?  He says he is donating the proceeds to charity!

Greece Is (still) the Word

Markets are cautiously optimistic that the latest Greek bailout plan will be approved on Monday.  While we’re all for markets looking up, we’re not sure how confident anyone should be that this new plan will be any more successful than the old ones. Wonder if they’ve kept any Drachmas in storage – just in case?

Payroll Tax Cut Extension – What It Means for You!

As of this writing, the Payroll Tax Cut Extension had just passed the House and was moving on to the Senate. The bottom line for someone making $50,000 per year is about an extra $80 in their paycheck each month – that’s almost an extra $1000 per year – sounds good to us!

How was your week?
