Hertz Relocates To Florida, Signals The Sunshine State Is Open For Business

By Ed Pozzuoli

To people outside the state, Florida’s image is that of beaches and sunshine, of theme parks and family-friendly destinations that are great places to rest, to relax, and to get away from the pressures of the “real world” for a week or so.

That’s not likely to change any time soon. It’s a brand that state leaders have worked for decades to create that has been a boon to our economic prosperity. What people outside the state are starting to realize now is that Florida is also open for business.

President Obama's Economy Continues To Fizzle

By Ed Pozzuoli

The Commerce Department rendered its verdict on the final quarter of President Obama’s first term last week and the results—like most of Obama’s economic policies thus far—were disappointing. While most economists were anticipating anemic 1% growth, gross domestic product actually dropped 0.1%, sliding back yet again into recessionary territory. It was the first such economic contraction in almost four years. Not good. Also, not good was the fact that unemployment ticked up again to 7.9%. These are not the kinds of reports that Obama and his economic team were hoping for just after Inauguration Day—especially not after the trillions spent on fiscal and monetary stimulus.

Stop Being So Gloomy, Republicans -- LEAD

By Edward Pozzuoli

In the wake of the recent presidential election, many Republicans across the country remain shell-shocked, some on suicide watch, with doom and gloom lurking on every corner. We thought we had this election wrapped up.

Despite a barely limping economy (one more sluggish than it would otherwise be but for President Obama’s big-government, Keynesian policy prescriptions) the Romney-led GOP still couldn’t seal the deal and recapture the White House.  And so, the reality of an Obama second term has set in, and it’s proving to be an extraordinarily difficult pill to swallow.

It’s time for the GOP to snap out of it.

What Obama Has Done, Not What He Says -- Matters

By Ed Pozzuoli

America is at a critical crossroads, and Obama just doesn’t get it.

Having steered the U.S. economy into a ditch that he created given his unfortunate reprise of big government spending and big regulation liberalism last in vogue in the 1930s, President Obama—remarkably—is asking voters for another term. Unfortunately, the problems created and worsened by our 44th President are far bigger than he is. Whom we elect in November will affect the course of our country, for better or worse, for decades to come. In 2008, candidate Obama was on the side of history and great promise. In 2012, history shows a trail of broken promises and gridlock that make President Obama appear small and wholly incapable of leading the American renewal we desperately need.

Why It's Time for the Voters to Fire President Obama

By Ed Pozzuoli

When you really think about economic growth, what first might appear mysterious on the surface quickly becomes easy to understand. Economic growth results from the hard-wired desire of the individual to produce in order to consume. We all pursue our individual economic specialties, and then we exchange the fruits of our labor for all the things – cars, houses, clothes, food – that we don’t specialize in producing.

Ignorance Is Not Bliss: Demystifying Executory Contracts in Bankruptcy Cases

An executory contract can create havoc for the unsuspecting counterparty. 

Most businesses are (reluctantly) required to deal with customers, suppliers and counterparties to agreements that enter bankruptcy proceedings, yet there is a great lack of knowledge as to how the concept of an executory contract can create havoc for the unsuspecting creditor/counterparty. Recent litigation in Delaware involving the sporting goods retailer Eastern Outfitters LLC (Eastern Mountain Sports and Bob’s Stores) points to some of the issues.

Lawyer Up: As Retail Bankruptcies Increase, Creditors Must Be Vigilant

Virtually no attention has been paid to what will soon be a big problem

While much has been written about the future of brick-and-mortar retailing as a result of the large number of retail bankruptcies during 2016 and even during the first weeks of 2017, virtually no attention has been paid to what will be a significant problem for creditors of those retailers that have sought bankruptcy court protection—even if some of the retail locations remain open.
