Willkommen, Presidente, Willkommen
I talk with these congressmembers more frequently than any sane person should and I guarantee you, I’m more disillusioned with Obama than any of them are– and he’d still be welcome in my office. I’d even take him for a walk up above my house and introduce him to Murphy, Sargeant, Felice and Licorice. He could even feed them some dried duck breast. It’s not like John Boehner, Darrell Issa, Mark Siljander or Miss McConnell. I’m still convinced that, unlike those 4 clowns, Obama is actually trying to do what’s best for America. He just isn’t too good at it– and his ... market research, surveys and trends

IMF Survey: Ghana's Reforms Transform Its Financial Sector
hana's macroeconomic stabilization has allowed it to achieve remarkable success in developing its financial sector. The development has been driven by well-sequenced financial sector liberalization policies, enhanced competition (including from abroad), and gradual capital account liberalization. The success of Ghana's ambitious financial reforms can be attributed largely to solid "buy-in" from key stakeholders—especially the private sector—and coordinated donor assistance. Despite its success in advancing financial soundness, Ghana still has much to do. It needs to deepen its secondary capital markets; ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

House Gives Final Approval to Financial Overhaul
The House on Wednesday adopted legislation to revamp the nation’s financial regulatory system, in a party-line vote that illustrated how the partisan bitterness in Congress prevented cooperation even on the shared goal of averting future economic crises and government bailouts of big banks, The New York Times’s David M. Herszenhorn reports from Washington. The vote in the House was 237 to 192, with all but three Republicans standing in opposition to a measure that President Obama in his State of the Union speech said embodied one of the highest priorities of his administration: “serious financial reform.” “If this bill ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
FINANCE: Stockbrokers, Credit Raters, Fannie Among Study Targets Ordered by ...
Most of the reports required by the financial reform bill are a grab bag of issues that reflect concerns of an individual lawmaker, or are designed to deflect any immediate action. But not all of the 42 studies and reports listed in the massive bill’s table of contents are destined to gather dust. Several are intended to form the basis for regulations such as eliminating conflicts of interest at credit rating agencies, and spelling out options for housing finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. For instance, lawmakers sought to fast track a Securities and Exchange Commission analysis of whether ordinary investors ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
