Insurance Companies Profit from Obamacare

No one can reasonably deny that the major Insurance Companies were the driving force behind the writing of the Affordable Care Act legislation.

Renminbi Soon to Be a Reserve Currency

In a provocative examination, financial expert John Mauldin addresses the relationship of the reserve currency status of the U.S. Dollar and the up and coming Chinese Renminbi. His article, The Renminbi: Soon to Be a Reserve Currency?, is an important analysis. The doom and gloom predictions that the dollar is finished gets a rebuttal argument. While this viewpoint may seem a little too late, the actions of the Chinese Inc. continues to lay into place a more prominent international role for their RMB currency.
