TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDERS: DEVELOPER DAZE DONE!!! KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN RENAISSANCE FINISHED AS LEADERS MUST FOCUS ON CORONAVIRUS FIGHT!!!



Once again we offer a quick review of Kansas City "priorities" which have now been dramatically shifted in the midst of this pandemic.

We reached out to KICK-ASS ECONOMIC INSIDERS on a variety of topics and here's a collection of their insights . . .

Suggestion:

Stop Kansas City Streetcar Expansion


Federal funds need to help people stay in their houses, eat and live whilst locked down. The streetcar has proven ill-equipped to respond to disaster and has cut back hours while buses are still on the move. Once and for all, readers of our blog community claim this mode of transit should obey the will of voters and allow CITYWIDE input regarding its future.

Coronavirus Could Kill Mission Gateway and Movie Theater Anchor Before It Starts


This JoCo ideas has always been sketchy and as theaters across the globe shutter, the top-ranking multiplex tenant of this local development might think twice about this plan given that another wave of Coronavirus is rising in Asia once again.

Kansas City Downtown Hotel Confronts Grand Opening Amid Evolving Industry


2020 will be the worst year for conventions in the modern era and in the future this crisis might have taught us that so much can be accomplished by way of Internet conferencing and online messaging. The reality is that there hasn't been a successful taxpayer funded convention hotel in Downtown KCMO for 50 years and this plan was pushed through by way of politics and not biz savvy.

The bright side . . .

Local kindness and a focus on giving and helping the community is the new hotness for 2020 in Kansas City right now.

The conclusion of just about everybody we asked . . .

THE KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN RENAISSANCE IS FINISHED!!! COPING WITH CORONAVIRUS REALITY IS NOW THIS TOWN'S ONLY REAL CONCERN!!!

Accordingly, here's the most important news link of the day:

What you're missing here is that KC should have been working on infrastructure and supporting police all along. When KC had the cash to spare was when we should have been updating our roads, placing more streetlights and hiring more police. Now we're stuck in a situation with bad revenues for the next few years AND a crumbling city outside of a few blocks in downtown.

That mission gate way b.s. was never going to happen in the first place.

When we look at why the streets are such a mess, we only need to blame Sly James. He did nothing to improve road conditions except for leaving office.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

For once they were right. The hotel was the "missing piece" and it's also the last piece.

It can be quickly turned into 800 luxury studio apartments.

Don't worry the large conventions and tourists are going to be coming soon! Mostly to experience our incredible street car and friendly downtown.

Um, did you just arrive here from another planet @8:58? I hope you're joking because that's not going to happen for another few yeas and maybe not even then.

That hotel is like an albatross around KC's neck. We need to think about what we can do to repurpose it.

2020 Won't be the worst for conventions. Sly rand everyone off during his reign of terror. The worst year was when he ran off the American Royal that had been in this city for more years than Sly was alive. No virus had done this Sly Jame DID!!!!

As for food drives there are churches, harvesters, grocery stores, and City Union Mission that have been feeding people and doing foods drives 24-7 365 days a year.

So what is this?

^^^ The Dow will come roaring back, that’s a given, how much crying will you do when it does?

Facts are a bitch aren’t they! Hahahahaha!

Anonymous said...

At the moment it's 19,400. We can only hope it comes "roaring back," but the fact remains under Obama it more than doubled, and so far under Trump the bubble is gone. He's now eating into Obama's gains.

^^^ won’t be for long, eventually it will make a run at breaking 30,000 I bet. For the psychopath that wants everything including the middle classes retirement wiped out because he hates Trump and America, Barry only had to double from 8000 points, in order for anybody to double 19,000 would probably require a miracle, but who knows, maybe someday it can be done but that’s a ridiculous comparison to make, Barry only increased the Dow by 11,000 from where he was at and Trump was damn close to matching that number when the dimwit created panic hit. They will do anything to hurt America to gain power.... just sayin

2:31: It's safe to say that in the long run the Dow will break 30,000. It's also safe to say, as Keynes did, in the long run we're all dead.

The Dow closed today $650 below where it was when Trump took Office!

The Market's lack of confidence in his ability to deal with this situation has now eaten away every bit of the growth during his three year Administration and he is now beginning to devour the 243% growth that took place under Obama!

OBAMA =
DJI (01/20/09) $7,949, (01/19/17) $19732 = +243% (avg. of 31% per year for 8 yrs).

TRUMP
DJI (01/20/17) $19,827, (03/20/20) $19,174 = - 3%!!!

Note that the highest the DJI has ever been under Trump was $19,827, but to match Th average growth under Obama, (31%/yr for 3 years -93%) it would have had to reach $38,266! Trump at his best has averaged 16% a year, barely more than HALF the growth under Obama!

as you put it so well, @1:27
"Facts are a bitch aren’t they! Hahahahaha!"
I couldn't have said it better myelf.

5:03 - Let Trump and today's Federal Reserve artificially inflate the market with $10 trillion like Obama / Bernanke and the market will soar over 30,000.

Obama added $10 trillion to our national debt to get the stock market jump started. Bernanke and the Federal Reserve were doing a better impression of Goldman Sachs than Goldman Sachs itself with the trades it made with an unlimited source of taxpayer dollars and a currency printing machine.

5:03 your knowledge of Finance and Economics is rudimentary at best. It appears you do know the difference between a stock and a bond which is a plus.

5:03: The Trumpkins are just too clever. Fox News has provided their talking points and given them their marching orders. Facts don't work, and logic will never interfere with their thought patterns. They live in an echo chamber. Might as well give it up.

Anonymous said...

Yup, @5:33, I spent a couple of decades in the Brokerage Business, then got out, and most importantly got my Clients out of Stock and into Fed Instruments a couple of months before Regan's "Voodoo Economic" chickens came home to roost.

Still own stocks, but only in a few OTC companies with good fundamentals. They're all doing just fine, lots of new money rolling in as your 401(k) shrinks.

Economics? I'm a "Will Rogers" adherent, "The return OF my money concerns me more than the return ON my money"!

It's all a manipulation. The healthcare industry and the media have unspokenly colluded 2hype the s*** out of this coronavirus thing, just as a grab for attention and power. The wall streeters have used this situation to manipulate the market so they could jump out high and jump in low and shortcut enormous gains in their own portfolios. Did Democrats we're going to try to use it to discredit Trump but he flipped that s*** took it over and is out Santa Clausing the Democrats. Well played but proof he will compromise his own beliefs to retain power.
