Why do financial market anomalies arise and persist? This column summarises a new thread in financial economics – the "limits of arbitrage" literature – explaining how financial institutions sometimes lack the capital needed to arbitrage away anomolies. This new approach has far-reaching implications for our understanding of how financial markets work and how they should be regulated.

I'm sure TIME would respond they were simply echoing the concerns of many about Michelle Obama's trip to Spain. The fact they would so specifically and thoroughly turn this caption into a platform for NY Daily News columnist ( and FOX political commentator, and PR exec, and former GOP campaign strategist) Andrea Tantaros , however, is the journalistic equivalent of "accessory-to-slander." By the way, If TIME were to argue for any daylight here between ... market research, surveys and trends
FT: Goodbye Middle Class | The Big Picture
And the only reason we had any expansion in 2002-2007 was that people were able to withdraw money from their houses. As Berry showed in his slide a few weeks back there was almost no growth at all since 2000 if you take away the contribution from MEW. This time around the consumer class will have to pay back that borrowed “wealth” and keep increasing their consumption to get a growing economy – where will that money come from. Is it time for an effective income distribution policy, or should we just let the market forces kill the american dream? stonedwino Says: August 8th, 2010 at 7:19 am Our economy has ... market research, surveys and trends

The Geithner Plan FAQ - Grasping Reality with Both Hands
A: The Geithner Plan is a trillion-dollar operation by which the U.S. acts as the world's largest hedge fund investor, committing its money to funds to buy up risky and distressed but probably fundamentally undervalued assets and, as patient capital, holding them either until maturity or until markets recover so that risk discounts are normal and it can sell them off--in either case at an immense profit. Q: What if markets never recover, the assets are not fundamentally undervalued, and even when held to maturity the government doesn't make back its money? A: Then we have worse things to worry about than government ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Inside GOP's strategy on unemployment
Republicans are hoping there's a political silver lining for them in the standoff over unemployment, even though polls clearly show that majorities favor extending benefits even if it increases the deficit. The GOP game plan: Amid the debate over benefits, point to "chronic" joblessness -- that's a word you'll be hearing more often -- in order to illustrate that Dem economic policies are failing. Republicans hope that even if the unemployment standoff gives Dems a short term advantage, any discussion about joblessness will continue to sow doubts over time about the efficacy of the Dems' big-spending ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In this undated photo from Trinity United Church of Christ, then Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., left, poses with the church's pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, in Chicago.
