No current plans for central bank to adopt digital currencies

Kansas City Fed President Esther George said Monday that the Federal Reserve is continuing its research on central bank-issued digital currencies, but that there are no plans at the moment to actually launch one in the U.S.

“I think it’s prudent that we do our homework and think about what that entails,” George told Yahoo Finance at the Sibos conference organized by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Intermediation (SWIFT).

For the last few years, the Fed has been conducting “in-house experiments” on the use cases for distributed ledger platforms. But the central bank is now extending its research by looping in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to actually build and test a hypothetical digital currency.

Fed Governor Lael Brainard, who has headed efforts on central bank digital currencies alongside George, said in August that their interest is focused on the “opportunities and limitations of possible technologies.”

Mastercard Stock Is Unlikely To Sustain Its Current Level

After a 66% rally off the March bottom, Mastercard’s stock (NYSE: MA) looks fully valued based on its historic P/E multiples. Mastercard, the second-largest global payment solutions company in the world, has seen its stock rally from $203 to $338 off the recent bottom compared to the S&P which moved around 50%.

Notably, the market has witnessed some negative movement since early September due to a bout of profit-booking after a strong run – MA’s stock is down 6%. However, it is still up 14% from levels seen in late 2019.

Mastercard’s stock has partially reached the level it was at before the drop in February due to the coronavirus outbreak becoming a pandemic. This seems to make it fully valued as, in reality,

Get a look at the current fantasy outlook for the Indianapolis Colts in their Week 3 matchup against the New York Jets

» FantasyPros Week 2 Position Rank: Hilton WR22, Pittman Jr. WR56

» Jets vs. WRs: 15th (20.9 FPPG)

When Grandma gets involved, you know it’s serious business. The veteran Hilton has struggled at a couple crucial junctures the first two weeks of the season — he had a couple big drops as the Colts tried to tie the game on their final drive Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and then couldn’t hang on (thanks mostly to the sun) when he broke wide open over the top for a would-be long touchdown pass from Philip Rivers last week against the Minnesota Vikings — and on Monday, Hilton’s grandmother, Pinkie, called from Florida to let him know she could tell he wasn’t being himself of late. Hilton told reporters this week that’s all the motivation he needs and that he’s officially out of his funk. So what does that mean from

City council passes renewal of current Central Business District, tables expansion

TUCSON, Ariz. — Barrio Neighborhood Coalition demonstrators gathered downtown Tuesday morning again to fight against the expansion of a Central Business District.

Expanding the district would give businesses who move into the area the chance to apply for partnerships with the city and tax incentives.

Activists say that type of benefit for business could come with a downside for historic neighborhoods.

Organizer Trish Muir said “By it’s own report, the city says that there are 7,500 housing units inside of the business district — 60 percent are rental properties. People who don’t own homes — When we see gentrification when we see property values go up, when we see rents go up, there is a very good chance that those 60 percent of the population could be displaced.”

A central business district does already exists in Tucson, but this action would expand that district to include parts of the south
