Known for his eccentric behaviour and videos, McAfee, 75, was a pioneer of anti-virus software and indicted in Tennessee on tax evasion charges. He also was charged in a cryptocurrency fraud case in New York.

Spain's high court agreed to extradite McAfee to the United States, a court document released on Wednesday said.

    Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic said Wednesday he was one of the seven Federal Open Market Committee members who projected a rate hike in late 2022, which was in the June summary of economic projections released last week. One rate hike in 2022 plus two rate hike in 2023. Inflation in dangerous level. Already new home buying index comes out its not upto the expectation. Eating out is the major thing to decide about usa economy condition. Its reduced nearly 85 percentage as per report. Usa meme companies are getting attention other companies loosing reputation in the share market. Home delivery of food and items also reduced as per research report. What is going on really ? Usa is very strong developed country and economy before. Now where its headed? Mcafee creator dead that also suicide in the prison. Tech major is treated very badly in the world wide market.
