The Weekly Top 3 (9.9.2019)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of September 9, 2019.

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am. I join Michael each week on Tuesday’s show, from 6:20-7am, for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues.

This week our Top 3 are these: 1) why, even if the Administration achieves all of its goals next year for spending cuts, we STILL will be talking about more PFD cuts (at 1:45); 2) what the Permanent Fund’s continued strong returns mean for the current generation (its not everything you would hope) (19:25); and 3) our takeaway from the Fitch bond ratings downgrade (its not the cuts, its the unstable revenue sources we are relying on) (27:26).

The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available on our Soundcloud page here. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
