  • Retailers Aim to Cash-in on Black Friday - 28 November 2013
  • Celebrated on the last Thursday of November, Thanksgiving Day in the United States is followed by Black Friday, with retailers kicking off the holiday shopping season with a host of specials that have some shoppers camping out on their doorsteps overnight to be among the first through the doors when they open. The origin and meaning of the term "Black Friday" is a matter for debate, but today it is generally accepted to mean that retailers operating at a financial loss (in the 'red') for most of the year, are likely to turn a profit on that day (in the 'black') as shoppers descend in their droves to take advantage of specials.

  • Timothy Massad Nominated as CFTC Chairman - 14 November 2013
  • President Barack Obama's nomination of Timothy Massad to replace Gary Gensler as the chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) came as no surprise. Massad played a significant role in the bank bailout program brought about by the 2008 financial crisis and should the Senate confirm his nomination, Massad will head the agency charged with implementing the Dodd-Frank Act aimed at regulating trading of complex derivatives on Wall Street. This lucrative, and often volatile, market has been accused of being one of the root causes in the destabilization of the US economy and the CFTC has the task of ensuring this particular piece of history is not repeated.
