It's easier to turn a thousand into a million, than to turn few million into a few billion.
The liberal, as foolish as he is, would have you believe that Trump is some self centered bafoon who just got lucky. This wrong.
Once again we see the leftist projecting their own good fortune and stupidity on to others.
A few bankruptcies in some ventures getting to a billion is very common and making it in media does require an outgoing personality.
Donald Trump is probably the most successful individual of all time desu. He's made it across several fields and then ascended to the presidency in a democratic system. And his presidency has been far better than the last four behind him.

Yes he's pretty good. Back in the 80's he had a reputation for getting projects off the ground and completed when other real estate people failed to do so on the same site. Yes he had projects fail and yes he had bankruptcies but none of those things ruined him. Lesser businessmen fall right off the map after that kind of hit, Trump survived.

The bankruptcy meme is the most obnoxious thing. Most of the people talking about all his bankruptcies don't even know how many businesses he had. It just shows that their weak minds don't even understand the importance of using percentages instead of nominal values.

In a strict sense of running a business, absolutely he’s not, but he is pretty clever at using people and exploiting any given situation. He’s proof that you don’t need much intelligence to be successful, at least not traditional intelligence - just ruthlessness and social skills.

Hard to say because he essentially inherited a couple hundred million dollars. His dad was under investigation for fraud in the 70s so he was put in charge as a figure head but his dad still ran the company until he died. A couple years after that Trump was insolvent. But he was already a celebrity for being a playboy rich kid so his brand alone carried him. I think he genuinely had to have made some good real estate deals, I mean was well connected to his father's business partners obviously, and he didn't have to pay taxes for a decade or more. But we have no clue to his finances so its hard to say. He only reported a couple mil in liquid assets in the few financial disclosures that have ever been released.

What fund captures full growth? None of them asshat. Vanguard has one of if not THE best index funds and only captures 80 percent of the growth.

lmao Bush caused most of that debt, continuing the classic republican tax less, spend more policy started by Reagan. We are still paying for all those decades long entitlement programs, tax cuts, and wars started by bush. Actually Obama increased spending less than any president in modern history because the republican before him fucked up so much.

Its the republicans signature move, run on tax cuts (free money!) during economic booms, then spend and print money like there is no tomorrow to prop up the economy as long as your 8 years last. Then when it collapses in the twilight of their administration blame it on the democrat if they get elected.

Plus in the bush years they controlled the house too and push though massive tax cuts, massive entitlements to their constituents, massive deregulation, started multiple wars. All these things are STILL being paid and we will be paying for them for decades. Somehow conservacucks blame that on Obama. The only thing Obama spent on was the stimulus which kept the bottom falling out after the collapse the republican's push for deregulation and easy credit caused. Besides that Obamacare was designed to be entirely funded but it was intentionally sabotaged by republicans with a death by a thousand needles.

No shit he promised them tax cuts (free money). But who actually got meaningful tax cuts that will actually out pace the inflation caused by the massive trump deficits funded by QE? Only the ultra wealthy like Trump himself truly made out.

Yeah, I'd say he's a rather successful businessman if you look at it on a financial and economical scale. He's successful on multiple fronts.

To even imply that he's stupid or a failure in any way is delusional. He's deceptively intelligent which makes him dangerous.
>>
>>7628205
No. Hes failed in business tons of times, and most of his "success" is from throwing money around until people cave and give him what he wants. He came from a rich family and that is the only reason he is as rich as he is now. You have people that started from much humbler beginnings that are 10 times wealthier than he will ever be.

>>7633620

What do you consider the market? Popular index funds track indices that people use to measure the market, like the S&P500. When people compare mutual funds to the market, they typically compare it to the S&P500 which most mutual funds fail to beat regardless of what the "real" market performed.

>>7633753
The market is the supply and demand of... everything. All capital. All financial products and instruments, all commodities.
For example SP500 is just stock of 500 companies. That doesn’t include their bonds. It also doesn’t include any derivatives or other bonds, bills, CDs, etc. There is way more to the markets than just equity of prominent companies. The only way to get a truly accurate representation of the total market is to own all assets, which obviously isn’t possible.

I'd love it if you told me how one uses a bankruptcy to offset losses

What happened was very simple. Trump borrowed a lot of money to build the Taj, it crashed, he had to pay the creditors. The creditors accepted an offer of some cash (which is why he sold a lot of his assets) and increased equity in the holding company of the Taj.
>>
>>7628833
He grossly inflates his net worth. Third party valuations put his net worth at closer to a billion.

Except he didn't actually make all the money himself. Benchmark for business talent is return on investment. Trump's is very average at around 7-10%.
>>
lol @ all of these soyboys saying hes not a good business man.

what's retarded about the muh index fund is that the baseline assumption is that he received all of his dad's net worth in the 70s.

Way better president than Hillary would have been though.
>>
>>7635577
Because he started running it in the 70s and he pays himself an absolute ludicrous salary of 250 million. For comparison Tim Cook, CEO of a company a hundred times bigger, makes 12 million. He bleeds the organization dry then invests in joint ventures with Trump Org, whittling away at the value of it while increasing his own.

>>7635833
no, they base all that early net worth on a quote FROM HIM. he was just talking shit to a reporter about how he's soooooo rich. so they used his shit talk to "prove" he was worth $200m in the 70s. it's so dumb

To all the memers saying he got money from his dad or whatever, explain why his brother isn't at all rich.

>>7635868
Nigger I'm not talking about that. Read my post. Whatever the value of Trump Org when he started running it in the 70s, he practically inherited all of it.
>>
>>7635940
Because trump inherited the CEO position. He started to pay himself nearly all of trump org's profits (his present salary being 250 million) and reinvested it by forming joint ventures between him and trump org using the money he paid himself from trump org. He basically moved all of Trump's Org assets to himself.

For a long period, I held Vechain. I have to admit that I received some good gains in % on Vechain.

The main reason why I invested in this altcoin was a result of their great marketing techniques and a strong community.

Over time I became more experienced in investing into cryptocurrency and instead of listening to what others had to say, I start looking at whitepapers, the quality of development teams, leadership, advisors etc.

Ones I reviewed my portfolio I recognized that some of my coins and especially Vechain did not follow the criteria of (controlled) speculation and does have some critical red flags. These red flags I want to share with you.

Vechain does not have a whitepaper
There is no knowledge about their developers
There is no Github activity.
Their website is a that of a very low quality.
They mention on their website the release of a so-called Clou(n)d platform in Q4 2017. I started a Reddit post to ask what a clouNd platform is. Nobody could answer me. I tried to ask the Vechain devs in discord, nobody was able to contact me since they were working on their main net.
The coca cola kid is clearly a sign of insiders trading.
Low-quality partnerships brought as HUGE partnerships. For example the DNL GV partnership, there is clearly a partnership, but DNL GV gave an official press release that DNL GV cooperated with Deloitte labs to create blockchain, so I would like to know how exclusive this is. The PWC partnership is a partnership as a third-party provider, the partnership with Liaoning Academy of Agricultural Sciences is brought as something big, while Liaoning Academy of Agricultural Sciences only published one article in the whole of 2016-2017. In short: Any partnership has some way or another some flaws.
Some advisors of Vechain have still Lorem ipsum on their website.

Trump invested in Manhattan real estate right around the time NYC hit rock-bottom in the 70s. His father forbade it and most at the time were avoiding it like the plague, but he did it anyway.

That has to be the smartest move he made. It is the 70s equivalent of buying cheap BTC in late 2014 - after the crash, when it was a joke, but ahead of the curve for the 20x from the 2014 ATH we ended up getting last year

Unless you earn on a similar plane, you will be speaking way out of turn and look retarded.

This is such a retarded talking point. The Atlantic City bankruptcy was his entire net worth. The only reason he isn’t penniless is because he inherited enough to be too big to fail.

No, he inherited hundreds of millions of dollars from his father and from his positions he gained simply for being his father's son, and then throughout his life he failed to beat the S&P500.

Jeff Bezos is worth over $100 Billion. Trump is somewhere around $3 billion. He's a "poor" billionaire.

His point still stands. Trump isn't a friend to crony businesses and that was made clear by businesses during the campaign year.
