The Importance of Rebalancing

the importance of rebalancing special research report Photo by kotaku.com
One of the most striking features of today’s economy is that interest rates, on everything from bank loans to Treasury bonds, are at 50-year lows. Federal Reserve actions to stabilize the financial system and stimulate economic growth contributed importantly to these low rates. There is much talk lately of the need for an exit strategy to normalize interest rates and head off the return of inflation. However, “normal” interest rates are likely to be lower than most people expect, especially if the Congress and the administration can agree on a long-run strategy to control fiscal deficits.

Lessons from the “Lost” Decade: Rebalancing, Bonds and ...

Last year was definitely a roller coaster year when it came to the stock market, and you may have taken the “just don’t open the scary statements” solution. Well, it’s time to take a peek and see where you stand. I won’t pretend that recent performance has been great, but if you made regular contributions throughout, you may be surprised to see your portfolio balance higher than it was in 2007. (Maybe.)

Clarke first off the blocks with departmental cuts
Kenneth Clarke, the Justice Secretary, is expected to play a key role in deciding where spending cuts will fall in other government departments after impressing the Treasury with his own cost-cutting plans. The former chancellor is likely to be among the first ministers to settle his own departmental budget for the next four years in talks with the Treasury. He intends to close 103 magistrates' courts and 54 county courts that are underused or inadequate, thereby saving £15.3m a year in running costs and £21.5m on maintenance. As chancellor, Mr Clarke imposed a squeeze on public spending before the 1997 election. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How can getting your teeth cleaned by the dentist improve your ...
A professional tooth cleaning happens in a doctor’s office. When a dentist or dental hygienist cleans your teeth they remove soft and hard deposits from your teeth that cause cavities. The main reason of having your teeth cleaned is to prevent or delay the progression of gum diseases. Getting your teeth cleaned is not the only way to prevent gum diseases — smoking has been implicated in approximately 50% of periodontal disease cases in adults. The frequency of professional teeth cleaning depends on the health of your teeth and gums, for example healthy children and adults should have their teeth cleaned at least once every year ...
