Merrill Edge Brokerage: Higher Interest Rate Options on Cash Sweep

I recently wrote about combining the Merrill Edge brokerage account with Preferred Rewards can get you higher credit card rewards, free stock trades, and cash bonuses for moving investments over. However, I didn’t say much about the interest rates on their cash sweep. That’s because their cash sweep options are horrible, and I always manually sweep my cash out of there. (First to my Bank of America checking via instant transfer, then out to a high interest savings account.) After a nice con...

Google Dominates US Paid Search – Can It Be Toppled?

In Q4 2018, Google accounted for 92% of all paid search clicks and 94% of all paid search ad spend in the U.S. for Merkle advertisers. That dominance is even greater on mobile devices, as Google click and spend share on phones amounted to 97% and 98%, respectively, in Q4. Now it’s certainly the case that some advertisers see Bing Ads and Yahoo Gemini ( ) accounting for a greater share of clicks and ad spend than the average Merkle advertiser, but independent parties like indicate a similarly ...

UK reports examine Facebook’s practices The results are in from the UK Government’s Cairncross Review, a report examining the health of U.K. news media and digital advertising. It recommends the creation of new official “codes of conduct” for news publishers that deal with Facebook and Google. It also called for the creation of a regulatory body to make sure the platforms were actually delivering on promises to clamp down on the spread of fake news. This was followed by another report from the U...

UK parliament calls for antitrust, data abuse probe of Facebook

A final report by a British parliamentary committee which spent months last year investigating online political disinformation makes very uncomfortable reading for Facebook — with the company singled out for “disingenuous” and “bad faith” responses to democratic concerns about the misuse of people’s data. In the report, published today, the committee has also called for Facebook’s use of user data to be investigated by the UK’s data watchdog. In an evidence session to the committee late last ...

Laws in 26 states provide that the state will not contract with companies that refuse to do business with those who invest in Israel.   In three states, the American Civil Liberties Union has sued to enjoin these laws, claiming that boycotts are protected by the First Amendment.   The argument has gotten some traction: two courts were persuaded,...

Medicare for All: A Time for Honesty

E. Kent Yucel                 I would like to give some additional perspective on the widely-touted Medicare for All (MFA) movement, which seems almost to have become a litmus test for being considered a competitive Democratic presidential candidate. Unfortunately, MFA, as it is used in the parlance of most advocates as well as the Democratic presidential candidates, skips over several important issues. These issues cut to the heart of whether or not MFA is a feasible approach to achieving u...

Political Advertising Guidelines for PPC Platforms

Ad platforms have been thrown into the forefront of scrutiny in recent years, resulting in stricter policies regarding political advertising. If you’re managing a political PPC campaign, whether promoting a candidate or an advocacy group, you should be aware of how each of the major platforms handles political ads. You’ll likely run into much greater limitations than the average campaign you manage, and should know up front what extra approval processes you’ll need to go through and where you c...

German antitrust office limits Facebook’s data-gathering

Twitter’s Jack Dorsey is thinking about creating a revise button to fix typos – but in the face of screen grabs, this feels futile“What’s the most important thing you want to see Twitter improve or create?” asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in 2016. The top answer? An edit button. Kim Kardashian West (59.5 million followers), in particular, is obsessed with the idea of one and has reportedly petitioned Dorsey via email and face-to-face. Donald Trump would probably also appreciate the function, given...
