Politics & Current Affairs

There’s no escaping the consequences of politics and current affairs on economic conditions and trends. In fact, the impact of significant political or social developments is often measured by Wall Street’s response. Extraordinary events, such as the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, sent economic and political tremors throughout the world and changed things forever. The summaries in this category touch all the important bases, offering keen insight into the most critical domestic and international issues of the day. You’ll find a number of offerings that focus on America’s formidable economic challenges at home and its high profile role on the global stage. We’ll take you behind the scenes in the White House where the president and his trusted advisors formulate complex economic policy while always weighing the political ramifications of their actions. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of why the world pays such close attention to America.
