Berkshire Palate Expands in Williamstown
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
06:32AM / Saturday, January 04, 2020

The new location in the Colonial Plaza is 600 square feet bigger than the eatery's original spot.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Berkshire Palate has moved to accommodate its expanding business.    The eatery has moved just a few doors down at the Colonial Plaza into the former EAT — a more suitable location for its cuisine, business, and customers.    "People are really receptive to the menu and I think they like that we are family owned and the food is local," co-owner Paul Brassard said. "They like the creative things we do on the menu and it is never the same old thing."   Berkshire Palate is a family business run by

@theMarket: New Wall of Worry for Markets
By Bill Schmick,
06:27PM / Friday, January 03, 2020
Donald Trump's decision this week to kill Iran's second-most important figure, Gen. Qassem Soleimanai, this week placed a time-out on the stock market's bull run into the New Year. Do you run for the hills or do you buy the dip?   If I look back to other geopolitical events, my first reaction is to use any further declines as an opportunity to increase exposure to the stock markets. At the same time, I wouldn't chase those categories of assets that have vaulted higher in response to this event. Gold and oil both moved higher overnight, but those gains could be fleeting as investors begin to assess whether or not there will be any further downside.   That is not to

'Uncut Gems': Frenetic: [fruh-net-ik] Filled With Excitement, Activity, or Confusion: Wild or Frantic
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires columnist
05:14PM / Friday, January 03, 2020
Adam Sandler's partially tour de force and indubitably frenetic portrayal of New York Diamond District jeweler/gambler Howard Ratner in "Uncut Gems" is a wildly disturbing adventure yarn, the purpose of which I'm still trying to figure out. Neither a comprehensive character study of its anxiety-ridden, addictive personality nor a scientific delve into the protagonist's torturing affliction, Howard's pillar-to-post rampage in quest of that ultimate score courtesy of a raw, Ethiopian opal will leave you shockingly exhausted.   Nonetheless, when I recently issued that quasi-deterring cautionary to an acquaintance, she seemed even more anxious than before to

The Independent Investor: Why Is Inflation so Low?
By Bill Schmick,
12:14PM / Friday, January 03, 2020
The inflation rate has not been a cause of concern in this country for well over a decade. On the contrary, economists have been worried that the opposite might occur, a bout of deflation.   Throughout the last decade, inflation has averaged no more than 1 1/2 percent, which is well below the Federal Reserve Bank's targeted inflation rate of 2 percent. Historically, that is highly unusual, given how economics are supposed to work. Central banks around the world (although they don't like to admit it), have no idea why the inflation rate is as low as it is.  Neither do global economists, or Wall Street strategists.   World economies continue to grow, and interest rates

Is Market Timing a Smart Investment Strategy?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
03:06PM / Thursday, January 02, 2020

You may have heard that timing is everything. And in many walks of life, that may be true – but not necessarily when it comes to investing.

To understand why this is so, let's look at three common mistakes investors make:

* Selling investments and moving to cash when stocks are predicted to drop: If you follow the financial news on cable TV or the internet, you're eventually bound to discover some "experts" who are predicting imminent, huge drops in the stock market. And on rare occasions, they may be right – but often they're not. And if you were to sell some of your stocks or stock-based investments based on a prediction and move the money to cash or a

Pittsfield's Plastic Bag Ban Begins With the New Year
01:44PM / Monday, December 30, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Single-use plastics will be in short supply beginning New Year's Day.    The City Council back in March passed an ordinance that bans use of thin-film plastic bags within the city effective Jan. 1.    Pittsfield retail establishments will have to utilize reusable checkout bags, recyclable paper bags, or compostable plastic bags. Thin-film, single-use plastic bags are defined as bags with a thickness of 3 mils or less; those that are thicker are considered reuseable.    The ban had been proposed in 2013 through a petition by local attorney Rinaldo Del Gallo and had been working its way through the City Council process for years. It
