  • Large corporations are increasingly using layoffs as a standard operating practice that can be used even when there is no recession. An astounding 58% of the Fortune 100 companies announced layoffs last year and another 5% announced job cuts in the first month of 2024. 1
  • A recent survey found that 46% of American adults and 58% of people earning more than $150,000 per year would pass on debt to their loved ones if they died today. Of those who said their loved ones would inherit their debts if they died, 21% had no life insurance. 2
  • This January the stock market rose 1.6%. Since WWII, when the S&P 500 has risen by at least 1.5% in January, its median yearly performance has been a 13.4% gain, with positive returns 82.5% of the time. *2
  • Used car prices have fallen 21% from their all-time high in December 2021, and data shows that the value of a used Tesla has dropped 49% from a high of $67,900 in July 2022 to $34,883.
