On top of that, even slight increases in demand can send oil prices soaring. For instance, world oil consumption increased from 76 million barrels per day in 2000 to 87 million barrels per day in 2008. Meanwhile, oil prices climbed from around $30 per barrel in 2000 to average more than $80 a barrel last year. A 14% increase in demand led to more than a 150% rise in prices. There’s the “Peak Oil” argument too. Which makes sense in there isn’t too much “easy” oil left, but there’s still plenty of oil in the world. It’s just more expensive to produce. Also the truly ...

ETF Expert: Morningstar Misses The ETF Boat With Wide Moat ETFs ...
For years, Morningstar reigned supreme as the mutual fund rating company. It still does. And that's in spite of a notoriously unreliable 5-star system. Yet people need "stars" or "thumbs up/down" or rotten tomatoes. In fact, we spend a great deal of our lives relying on the grades that others assign, even when those opinions amount to little more than noise. Mutual fund ratings failed the folks at Morningstar in the first 21st century bear (2000-2002). So, after many years of bad mouthing the benefits that individual securities might bring, they diversified by grading individual stocks. Similarly, after ... market research, surveys and trends

Investing in the “New Normal” - CBS MoneyWatch.com
The natural response to the market rally of the past two months was to sigh in relief. Maybe the nightmare was over. Maybe, just maybe, we’d paid our dues, gotten the message about risk, suffered through the exception that proves the rule, and now can we please go back to the “normal” investing world? In that world, the U.S. economy grows at about three percent annually after inflation, the U.S. is the world leader in economic might, and the long run the normal return for U.S. stocks is about six percentage points over inflation, as Jeremy Siegel documented in Stocks for the Long Run . But maybe that’s ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Have We Established a New Normal for Personal Savings? | Wall St ...
just announced in May personal income increased 0.4% while spending also popped to 0.2% from 0.0% in April. Interestingly, the Personal Savings Rate jumped to 4.0% — the highest reading since September 2009. Have we firmly established a new normal in Personal Savings for at least the short term? Applying our trading technical analysis to the chart below, it seems we have new levels of support and resistance: I stress the duration short term because once unemployment declines, we should see the cultural spending habits of Americans come back as fast as they slowed in late spring of 2008.

(Simon Lim/Getty Images) More than 210 Chinese companies are actively traded on the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, and other over-the-counter non-Chinese stock markets, but most of them are not subject to the same transparency as other listed public companies. For Western companies to be listed on stock exchanges, they must be privately owned by shareholders—meaning that they must be independent from government control.

Back to a Better Normal | The White House
My life as a policymaker began the Monday before Thanksgiving in 2008 when President-Elect Obama announced his economic team.  By the following Monday, we were all in Washington formulating the recovery policies.  I vividly remember the Friday of that first week in December:  the employment report for November was released showing that we had lost more than half a million jobs.  It was clear that what might have been an ordinary recession a few months earlier was taking on ominous proportions.  As I was briefing the President-Elect by phone, I found myself saying, “I am so sorry, the numbers are ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
The "New Normal" what does that mean in the Project Management ...
Subsequent to the financial market crashes and global recession, it appears that the world will have to adjust to a new equilibrium that features more regulation, higher taxes, less leverage, lower growth and higher unemployment. Economically this is called the "New Normal". The "Old Normal" is truly the "end of an era", and there are a number of valid reasons why it may be hard to return to it for the next 10, or possibly 20, years. I am speculating that Project Management as a profession will have to respond to this new equilibrium, and fuel the economic growth. The gigantic stimulus and rescue packages will ensure that more ...
Beginner Investing: Online investing in IRAs? How to setup an IRA ...
O.K. so I'm new to investing...still in my 20s but I know I need (and want) to save so I can actually retire someday. Ive got a basic 401k at work and have 5% of my income invested there, but it only pays maybe 1-3% with their best "aggressive growth" fund (they do a match though which is why I'm signed up). Ive got other online savings paying between 3-5% for my "emergency funds" (6months living expenses)...but what I really want is to start a Roth IRA and begin investing in stocks. I fully understand the risks involved and I'm sure I'm ready for it but I just don't have the ...
