Having a higher inflation usually boosts the economy because goods (or services) made in the U.S. become cheaper compared to those made abroads thus increasing the demand for such goods and lowering the unemployement rate by stimulating production. Countries like China have often used this to their advantages to compete against the world. The article below presents an insight in the work of the U.S. Federal Reserve as it is approaching its full employment goal.
Sometime next year, the Federal Reserve will likely face an unusual confluence of economic circumstances. One of its mandates, full employment, will call for...

The Age of Hacks? I think the author is misinterpreting what has been going on since the first days of person computing and the internet. Our lives are indeed online but the hacks have always been there. Like one of my friends would say "it's like American football, you have to know the playbook and walk through each play until you find the right one." Medical records are at risk and need to be protected and under scrutiny now more than ever.
This is why -- and how -- all these hacks are happening.

It's an exciting year for you if you do business in India. The government is trying to implement a single market for the first time. Currently, India is a good example of how market barriers within a single state can negatively impact businesses practices and encourage corruption. It will interesting to see how the business landscape will change when this law will be in place and if it will in fact decrease the corruption in one of the biggest economies in the world.

Great food, great place (so beautiful in the back room especially). Portions are large so you can take some home. Got the Couscous Royale. The presentation was great too.

I went there with my mum right after we got off the megabus. It was a very nice small place with great food. We ordered their 'bento box' and it was delicious. The (great) reviews were right. Don't let yourself tricked by the "not so tourist-clean" street on which it lies. Definitely something to try.
