A model thought to be used by the Federal Reserve that hypothesizes a relationship between long-term treasury notes and the market return of equities. Investopedia Says : The Fed doesn't endorse this tool. In fact, it was named the"Fed model" by Prudential Securities strategist Ed Yardeni.

In the past few years, both countries have experienced a significant wealth effect--so significant that understanding the wealth effect has become an important aspect of conducting monetary policy. In the United States, the average ratio of household wealth to disposable income was about 4.5 from 1970 to 1995. Over the next five years, fueled by a modest boom in real estate values and a huge boom in equity values, the wealth-income ratio shot up to more than 6, the highest recorded value in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Understanding the Malaria-Causing Parasite
In the early part of the 20th century, German-born biochemist Hans Krebs figured out one of the most universal ways living things use nutrients in order to produce energy, grow and reproduce. His discovery of the cycle, which was named for him, led to a Nobel Prize in 1953. The Krebs cycle, also known as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, is a process where dietary sugars in the presence of oxygen burn off carbon, which is released as carbon dioxide. This process—respiration—makes much of the energy that drives metabolism. Scientists have found some version of the Krebs cycle in almost all living things, from ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
