Bernstein Research estimates that a 10 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions could lead to a 12 percent rise in U.S. natural gas demand. (AP Photo/Ralph Wilson, File)Economist James Galbraith agrees that the years since the financial crisis have seen slower growth, low employment and a struggling housing market. However, he believes easy growth actually ended in the 1970s, and the U.S. economy has seen uneven growth and rising inequality since.

SEC finds deficiencies at hedge funds

US Rewards Anonymous Whistleblower $30mPHILADELPHIA—Recent examinations of hedge funds have uncovered a range of problems, a top Securities and Exchange Commission official said, including firms boosting their performance, and the fees they collect, by changing the way they value investments. Andrew Bowden, the director of the SEC's Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations, said the agency has found a series of deficiencies at the roughly 185 hedge-fund firms in which it completed exams. The findings come as the SEC begins more closely scrutinizing hedge funds, which have historically operated with less oversight than other investment managers. The agency, in the wake of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial-overhaul law, has begun requiring a wider swath of hedge funds and private-equity funds to register with the agency and provide detailed data on trading.

Tax heist: Thieves scam taxpayers out of $5.2 billion

IRS Lets Thieves Scam Taxpayers Out of $5.2 BillionScam artists conned the federal government out of at least $5.2 billion in fraudulent tax refunds last year—and though that estimate is shocking enough—the amount is likely much higher, auditors warned on Monday. Identity tax refund fraud has ballooned in recent years as electronic filing gives thieves an easy way to use stolen social security numbers and simply file phony tax returns. Though the electronic filing has made the tedious process more bearable and user-friendly for taxpayers, it has also made it much easier for criminals to scam the system. Thanks to electronic filing, fraudsters armed only with laptops or smart phones can steal millions of dollars from taxpayers—all from the comfort of their own homes.

3 steps to a more Fed-proof portfolio

Las bolsas europeas suben en línea con Wall St tras comentarios de la Fed“Committee participants want to make sure that we have the flexibility — that the committee has the flexibility to respond to unfolding developments,” Fed Chair Janet Yellen said primly at her press conference this past Wednesday. Above all, Yellen argued, the Fed doesn’t want to be “locked into” any kind of forward guidance outlook. No shocker there — this is the stock market, where if you’re not being greedy, you’re cowering in fear — but the amount of greed in riskier parts of the market, like fledgling biotech and technology companies, has risen to new highs. Well, if the Fed wants flexibility, you should too.
