In an effort to determine just how the recession and stubborn credit environment have impacted treasury operations at organizations around the country, Business Finance magazine initiated an online survey of its readers this summer.

Financial overhaul law to bring more regulation
The measure targets the risky banking and oversight failures that led to the last crisis. The goal is to make another crisis less likely — and, if it does happen, less costly for taxpayers. Most of the new rules won't take effect right away. Regulators will take months to study dozens of issues in the 2,300-page law before drafting rules. Among them: Should the government limit the size of banks? How should stockbrokers be held accountable for advice they give to clients? How can credit ratings be made more reliable? All of that means the real-world impact of the law will depend on how it's interpreted by regulators. market trends, news research and surveys resources

Also, the US is considered one of the most stable economies/governments in the world, it will not change drastically the way some countries (latin america for instance) might.

Risk free rate of return using treasury bill rate? - Yahoo! Answers
Okay, my ultimate goal is to find a reasonable risk free rate of return to use in the CAPM formula. I understand how to calculate the rate of return on something to find the yield. My question is what figures do I use to arrive at the risk free rate? I've gone to the U.S. treasury website to find rates, but there are different types and I'm not sure which one's to use. Is it the daily treasury yield curve rate or do I go to the section that lists the daily treasury bill rates and look at the 13 week maturity?? http://www.ustreas.gov/offices/domestic-… Or http://www.ustreas.gov/offices/domestic-… P.S. ...
