Obama in Cuba and Amazon’s Lobby Efforts

from Boom Bust

Index funds are beating actively managed investing across Europe over the short-term and the long-term and Marriott is back with a deal for Starwood; Edward Harrison weighs in. Then, RT’s Marina Portnaya reports on the implications of President Obama’s visit to Cuba from Miami. Afterwards, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at existing home sales, the Halliburton-Baker Hughes merger, and Greece.

After the break, Ameera David sits down with David Beckworth – assistant professor of economics at Western Kentucky University and adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute – to talk about oil and the Fed. And in The Big Deal, Edward and RT’s Manuel Rapalo discuss Amazon.
