The most powerful business lobby in the United States is not a fan of the landmark heat care and climate package President Joe Biden is expected to shortly sign into law.

“Business Roundtable opposes the ‘Inflation Reduction Act,’ which, among other things, includes tax provisions that would undermine American economic growth and competitiveness,” the group said in a statement shortly before the measure was passed by the Senate.

But analyzes by Wall Street institutions published over the past week found that the impact on corporate earnings would likely be limited, though some sectors could be more affected than others.

Tesla (TSLA) confirms plan to launch electricity retail business in Texas

Tesla has confirmed its plan to launch a new electricity retail business in Texas through a new job posting for a role overseeing the new business unit.

Last year, Tesla created a new business unit called Tesla Energy Ventures and applied with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to sell electricity on the retail market.

The plans haven’t been clear, but Tesla has since launched a virtual power plant demonstration with Powerwall owners in Texas, and the goal is to demonstrate the value to ERCOT, Texas’s electric utility regulating body, in order to operate a virtual power plant in the state – as it does in California.

Tesla could be looking to get deeper into the Texas energy market and become a dull electricity retailer, which is what the company now confirms through a new job posting found by Electrek. The automaker is looking for a “Product Operations

New business in Janesville aims to help food desert problem on city’s south side

JANESVILLE, Wis. — A new storefront in Janesville won’t solve a big issue on its own, but the owner hopes her new venture will help fill a void that’s been there for years.

Sustain Ability Bulk Shop will open on Janesville’s south side in early September. The business aims to sell products that are friendly to the environment and produce from local vendors.

Cassandra Pope decided to open the business after seeing that her area was fought to provide sustainable options.

“Our goal is to take sustainable items and give people access to them,” said Pope. “We were constantly having to go to the north side of town for everything.”

The Center Avenue business will provide these options in a part of town that’s in dire need of them.

According to Feeding America’s

New American Airlines Business Class Seats: What We Know

In the next couple of years, American Airlines is expected to debut two new kinds of business class seats. While there aren’t any new updates (at least not that I’ve heard), I thought it would be fun to take an updated look at what we should expect, and when we should expect it.

American’s new Boeing 787 business class (2023)

American Airlines plans to introduce a new Boeing 787 business class product as of 2023. American already has 48 Boeing 787s in its fleet, with a further 41 Boeing 787s on order. The airline is currently taking delivery of Boeing 787-8s, though starting in 2023, the airline should start taking delivery of its 30 remaining Boeing 787-9 orders.

We’re expecting American to debut a new business class product on these Boeing 787-9s. Some of these 787-9s are expected to be in an uber-premium configuration, featuring just 244 seats. This will

Bed Bath & Beyond’s (NASDAQ:BBBY) Short Squeeze may be Risky, but the New Business Model has a Chance

First published on Simply Wall St News


  • Experienced traders have the advantage when maneuvering a possible short squeeze. This can also work for retail investors that have a plan.

  • BBBY changed the business strategy in 2019 to importing off label products and selling them as their brand – Inflation is boosting this approach.

  • Insiders have bought the stock, but BBBY is still in a risky financial position with more debt than equity.

It seems that most of the bad performance of Bed Bath & Beyond ( NASDAQ:BBBY ) is attributable to the negative performance history after 2019. The stock is beaten down by short-selling, with some 35% of shares being shorted by July 14th, 2022, and analysts are also posting low price targets for the stock which has driven it to a multi-year low valuation.

However, a change in their business model may improve future margins and there may

These States’ Workers Would Pay Most Under Biden’s New Business Tax

Where will President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats get the money to finance their large expansion of subsidies for green energy and extension of Obamacare subsidies for the upper middle class?

The simple answer is: “From hardworking taxpayers.”

Taxpayers across the income spectrum should expect they will ultimately pay for the left’s deceptively named Inflation Reduction Act.

But the new taxes would fall more heavily across specific industries and parts of the country. The largest tax in the bill, the new “book minimum tax,” accounts for $222 billion of the more than half a trillion dollars of expected new tax collections. The book minimum tax would hit manufacturing disproportionately.

According to recent government estimates by the Joint Committee on Taxation, manufacturing would bear 49.7% of the book minimum tax, despite accounting for only about 11% of the economy.

More specifically, the nonpartisan committee estimated that 16.1% of the tax would
