Historic Federal Reserve lending to banks in the wake of Silicon Valley Bank’s collapse punched a huge hole in its effort to shrink the size of its balance sheet, though economists don't view that turnaround as a shift back toward a stimulative use of its asset stockpile. Instead, the rapid expansion of the Fed's holdings of cash and bonds has emerged as a key tool to help contain financial stability issues, speaking to the core mission of why the central bank was founded just over a century ago. The usage of these lending facilities, including the Fed's long-shunned discount window for bank lending, gave the central bank room, should it choose it, to press forward with rate rises and avoid past cycles of being forced to stand aside or cut rates when markets suffer notable turbulence.

It's not all rainbows and roses, though -- it's also a time when we have to survive on whatever income streams we've managed to build while working and on Social Security. Thus, as you plan for, enter, and live in retirement, it's smart to have a handle on how much your Social Security income may be taxed. The good news is that fully 38 states -- plus the District of Columbia -- do not tax Social Security income.
In Joe Biden's childhood hometown of Scranton, signs of affection for the U.S. president are hard to miss.

Two weeks of U.S. and European banking stress and failures leaves the Federal Reserve and other major central banks in the unenviable position of choosing between stabilising financial systems and fighting still historically high inflation. The level of uncertainty - particularly during a public blackout period for Fed officials - has seen wild swings in market interest rates each day for a fortnight and the most volatile month for Treasury bonds since the banking collapse of 15 years ago. While many think bank turmoil in itself will ultimately hasten a credit crunch that does the Fed's job for it, shocking news of a re-acceleration of UK inflation last month was a reminder to central banks that disinflation is not yet baked in.
Argentina's slow-and-steady currency devaluation plan is coming under rising pressure as a historic drought pummels exports of cash crops soy and corn, draining the country's reserves of dollars needed to prop up the embattled peso. The drought - hitting dollar incomes - is now raising the specter of a faster devaluation, which the government is desperate to avoid ahead of general elections in October, wary of pumping up annual inflation already running at 102.5%. "It strains the exchange plan the government is trying to implement with progressive devaluation, the alternative to avoid a sharp devaluation shock," said Santiago Manoukian, economist at consultancy Ecolatina.

TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew is set to testify before Congress for the very first time on Thursday. These are 3 things Yahoo Finance will be looking out for. Number one is national security: How will TikTok address privacy and data security concerns as well as how it handles user data, and what would TikTok do if the Chinese government says hand that data over? Number two is TikTok’s growth: TikTok this week revealed its monthly active users in the U.S. hit 150M; that's a jump of 50% in the past 2+ years. Any wide-ranging U.S. ban could potentially hurt the more than 100,000 creators using TikTok for extra income. Number three is influence or interference: 2024 is a presidential election year in the U.S., so expect questions on misinformation, political influence, and even how children are affected by the content.
