on the heels of his latest visit to the Gulf region – the fourth since the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion in April.   With such an environmental and economic crisis present, the president needs to exert leadership to protect our precious coastal resources and clean up the spill. His message was the wrong one.  Instead, he continued to politicize the crisis by pushing for cap and trade legislation and to establish a separate claims fund – financed by BP – that will do very little to address the issue at hand.  President Obama is right in saying that the Gulf region will bounce back, but not with the policies of cap and trade and ... market research, surveys and trends

The Billion Dollar Boondoggle :: Cover Story :: Article ...
On Jan. 14, 2012, City Council President Anna Verna is scheduled to retire from office and collect a going-away present from the city — a lump-sum cash bonus of $584,777. But she doesn't have to stay retired for long. If Verna runs for office again in 2011 and wins, she can retire for one day, make a deposit at the bank, and then go back to work the next day, Jan. 15, 2012, and resume collecting her salary of $148,090. Or Verna, who will be 80 years old, could stay retired and collect her annual pension of $133,701. Either way, Verna will be a lot richer. And all she had to do to earn that big cash bonus was sign a ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In 2009, North Korea’s foreign trade (not including inter-Korean trade) amounted to 3.41 billion dollars, 10.5 percent less than 2008, which saw the largest amount of DPRK overseas commerce since 1991. Exports were down 5.97 percent (1.06 billion USD), while imports were down 12.45 percent (2.35 billion USD), recording a 1.29 billion USD trade deficit. These figures come from a KOTRA analysis of the Korea Business Center (KBC)’s statistics of trade with North Korea by foreign countries. Because North Korea does not reveal trade statistics, this ‘mirror analysis’ method of analyzing the statistics of its trading partners is the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Gaza's humanitarian crisis is not a surprise--it's what we wanted
This weekend Israel, under growing pressure from Washington, announced a change in the siege strategy toward the Palestinian population of the Gaza Strip. Up until now, Israel's strategy has been to deny entry of almost all goods, except the most basic supplies it alone deems necessary to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe. The list of goods that Israel has allowed into Gaza has changed, sometimes daily, as the Israeli government has sought to maintain its absolute, arbitary control. Gazans, faced with the engineered shortages of everything from diapers to coriander, have imported all manner of goods through an ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Enraged to engaged: Tea party backers explain why
YUCCA VALLEY, Calif. — Bill Warner is hardly a naive man. He ran his own engineering firm for three decades, and sold the assets just before the economy tanked. He built his dream home on a majestic hill abutting a national park, back when the housing market was steady. While some neighbors have since been foreclosed upon, Warner is resurfacing his flagstone deck. And so he understands, quite clearly, that in the world of politics, his little group — officially, the Lincoln Club of the Morongo Basin — is but a molecule in the figurative drop in the bucket of power and influence. Its stated purpose is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

"Sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug. Sometimes you’re the Louisville Slugger, sometimes you’re the ball."

What Role Did Credit Rating Agencies Play in the Credit Crisis?
This E-Book section addresses the role that credit rating agencies (CRAs) played in the credit crisis.

What do I do about my school debt lawsuit? | Ask MetaFilter
I'm scared. I moved away from home to attend university, but I was kicked out after a year for failing grades and back tuition. I owed approximately $10,000. After a few months of being away from the school and not paying them anything, I got a call from a collections agency. They had bought(?) my debt and were responsible for collecting. I made an agreement to pay $150 a month. I did that for 4 months or so, then there was an emergency that caused me not to be able to pay last September. Since then, I have been living paycheck to paycheck (literally, on $10.50/hr at 32 hrs/wk, so I know it shouldn't be that bad but I ...
Can I avoid a credit hit on a short sale? - Yahoo! Answers
If I make prior arrangements to pay any shortfall on the sale of my existing house with the bank, can I avoid having it affect my credit? I am considering a move from an overheated market where I am upside down on my mortgage to a stabilized, cheaper market where I'll be able to afford a cheaper mortgage plus make regular payments to settle any shortfall. I've heard that banks won't consider a short sale until you're behind on payments. Would they consider it if I'm a good credit risk with solid income and room to pay off the difference? I am assuming that if I can scrounge the $ ...
