Shell is buying a company once called British Gas for just under $70 billion. BG Group is a major supplier of liquified gas to North America, but it also increases Royal Dutch Shell’s crude oil portfolio by nearly 20 percent. More on that. Let’s turn to Chicago where we find  Lindsey Piegza, Chief Economist, Managing Director at Sterne Agee, to check some dominant themes in markets and the economy this morning. Plus, we read a little e-book called “As Certain as Death: Quotations About Taxes” days before the big filing day.
