IRS Walks Tightrope in Plan to Use Private Debt Collectors

The Internal Revenue Service is looking to use private contractors to help collect tax debt but some warn there is a risk of increased scams and abuse.

The IRS announced its intent to use private debt collectors  Sept. 26 in response to a congressional order. The federal agency hopes to have the program operational by spring. The idea could help the agency to more efficiently collect tax debt, but it might also be opening the door to fraud and abuse.

“What makes it worse is the prevalence of these scam artists who call pretending to be IRS collectors,ȁ...

Conversation With Atlanta Fed on Today's GDP Revision and Its Impact on 3rd Quarter GDP Estimates

Courtesy of Mish.

Today the BEA released its Third Estimate for Second Quarter GDP. The third (final) estimate bumped up the prior estimate from 1.1% to 1.4%.

The BEA changed the name from “final estimate” to “third estimate” because GDP is subject to revisions years or even decades later.

I am curious how this would impact the Atlanta Fed GDPNow forecast and the FRBNY Nowcast estimate both due out tomorrow. I have a detailed answer from Pat Higgins at the Atlanta Fed, creator of GDPNow.

Hi Mish,

I can give you a more detailed answer tomorrow after the GDPNow update is released. We don’t do an update today beca...

Epizyme - A Waiting Game

Reminder: Pharmboy is available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Epizyme was founded in 2007, and trying to create drugs to treat patient's cancer by focusing on genetically-linked differences between normal and cancer cells. Cancer areas of focus include leukemia, Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and breast cancer.  One of the Epizme cofounders, H. Robert Horvitz, won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2002 for "discoveries concerning genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death."

Before discussing the drug targets of Epizyme, understanding epigenetics is crucial to comprehend the company's goals.  

Genetic components are the DNA sequences that are 'inherited.'  Some of these genes are stronger than others in their expression (e.g., eye color).  Yet, some genes turn on or off due to external factors (environmental), and it is und...
