Let's Talk Money
Reaching Record Highs

Sequestration and the Aftermath
The sequestration deadline has come and gone with most people probably thinking to themselves “now that wasn’t so bad.” To take a phrase from PIMCO’s Mohamed El-Erian and use it in a different context, it feels as though we’re finally getting used to Washington’s “New Normal.” We saw it with the Fiscal Cliff and we’ve [...]
