Municipal bonds still attractive despite ugly state finances ...
While some municipalities and states are definitely fiscal basket cases – California and my home state of Illinois come to mind – “munis” still are generally a safe and yield-friendly way to invest. The most attractive quality of munis now is that defaults are rare, and yields are robust relative to U.S. Treasury bonds. The average tax-free rate for a municipal bond is 4.21 percent, according to the Leuthold Group. Since municipal income is not taxable, the biggest benefits flow to higher-income investors. For a taxpayer in the 35-percent bracket, that 4.21 percent translates to a 6.5 percent tax-equivalent yield. Considering ... market research, surveys and trends
China M&A. The Extreme Basics On Due Diligence. : China Law Blog ...

Tony Abbott's economic action plan doesn't add up
To borrow Paul Keating's line, it is a case of voodoo economics. It contains complaints about overstated levels of debt as well as promises the Coalition would rapidly repay debt, but with simultaneous large-scale spending commitments. Frankly, it reads like the kind of policy script a political party releases when it doesn't think that it will have to implement it. Only at this election there is a real chance Abbott will have to implement his economic action plan -- that is how close the election remains with just a few days to go. Inevitably, there will be some voters who won't care that the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
