lt_afad00aca7cbb03196e9064863dff8b24de7ec89e65124095ea870e26a41a180Many people are interested in finding the oldest websites online. Plenty of great web paradigms have arisen over the years, and they have had plenty of inferior imitators. People interested in penny auction websites should know that DealDash has made more longevity than any other American penny auction site. It has stood the test of time in many different ways, and developed a following along the way.

Websites with this sort of history can usually hold their own and withstand economic changes. They are also that much more likely the meet the needs of their customers.DealDash has been rated very highly for the quality of its customer service, which is indeed a rarity in this niche.
Given the age of the website, they have had a great deal of experience.
Some people are wary of using penny auction websites, and they can have a wide variety of different concerns. Some people may simply be indifferent and apathetic, since they don’t think that they’ll find anything that they like on penny auction websites, and don’t feel the need to even try. These people should know that DealDash has a lot of kitchen equipment available, which these people can get at a reduced rate. They may spend three percent of what they would spend otherwise if the items are new, which can be truly impressive savings for people that clip coupons on a regular basis looking for the best deal.
Customers that are worried about the quality of the items should know that DealDash has brand name items on hand, from places like Sears, Walmart, and Best Buy. They can get more or less the same products they would otherwise at outlets like these, only with more of an element of chance and fun. DealDash has a lot to offer outside of its product range, and people are getting a lot more than just the items they win. However, the items they win are still high-quality, which is more than can be said for the items available at many penny auction sites.
For customers with kids, there are plenty of children’s toys available as well, which can be especially helpful when the holidays are approaching. People that are trying to add to their home theaters will be able to find plenty of good products through DealDash. DealDash certainly has a lot to offer its potential clients and customers.
Winning the items certainly adds plenty of excitement to the whole endeavor, but even the people that don’t win will still have options. The Buy It Now application helps people receive their bids, so no one has to feel too disappointed.
DealDash tries to protect its customers from unnecessary spending. They make sure that shipping is free, so customers can focus on the actual products, as opposed to the logistics. People that make their first purchases can get all of their money back, if necessary, although DealDash is confident that customers will be satisfied. Many customers have enjoyed their time with DealDash, which is one reason it has been in the game for so long.

Warning: War with ISIS will spook financial markets

The drumbeat for a U.S.-led war with ISIS is growing louder, and the coalition of countries vowing to destroy the group is growing in number after British aid worker David Haines was beheaded, the latest in a series of brutal murders. Haines’ beheading follows the murders of two American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said his country will do whatever is necessary to combat the Islamic State.

“We have to confront this menace. Step by step, we must drive back, dismantle and ultimately destroy ISIL and what it stands for,” said Mr. Cameron. “As this strategy intensifies, we are ready to take whatever steps are necessary to deal with this threat and keep our country safe.”

U.S. officials also took to the Sunday talk shows over the weekend to make the case for military action against ISIS.

Secretary of State John Kerry went on CBS’ Face the Nation and emphasized the coalition of countries prepared to strike Iraq and Syria.

“I can tell you right here and now, that we have countries in this region, countries outside of this region, in addition to the United States, all of whom are prepared to engage in military assistance, in actual strikes if that is what it requires,” he said.

President Obama last week emphasized that U.S. combat forces would not be part of his strategy to “degrade and destroy” ISIS. Referring to an additional 475 service members he is sending to Iraq, the president said, “these American forces will not have a combat mission –- we will not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq.”

But former director of the CIA, Michael Hayden, and some retired U.S. generals believe ground forces will be necessary. Hayden predicted on Fox News Sunday that as many as 5,000 U.S. personnel would be on the ground in the war against ISIS by the end of the year.

Market reaction to escalation

In recent months, the financial markets have had little reaction to geopolitical crises – such as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. But an escalation in the war with ISIS could be a catalyst to change that, according to David Stockman, former director of the Office of Management and Budget and author of The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America.

Yahoo Finance spoke with Stockman and noted economist and Professor at the University of Texas at Austin, James Galbraith about what war with ISIS will mean for the markets and the U.S. economy.

“I think we’re stepping into a hornet’s nest that will create endless problems as we stumble down the road and elicit one kind of blowback after another,” said Stockman. “It will create the opportunity for unexpected turns in events that will spook the financial markets from time to time, and of course, it will distract Washington from addressing any of the economic or fiscal problems confronting the nation.”

Professor Galbraith takes a broader view on the post-Cold War realities the United States is facing and the challenges ahead for policymakers.

“The larger environment of world stability created by the United States in the Cold War and after the Cold War is coming apart,” he said.

Stockman warns that instability, when combined with a shift in Fed policy away from easy money will cause the markets to refocus attention on foreign events in the way they haven’t in recent months.

“As the markets begin to adjust and re-price and contemplate a future where the Fed is not just pouring liquidity onto Wall Street every day, I think news events that were ignored in the past may become the catalyst or the excuse for major selloffs, off and on, as we go forward.”
