There's news today about which country will end the year as the top producer of petroleum. It's a statistic that is altering both the oil market and geopolitics. And with tomorrow being the first of October, one year since the roll-out of healthcare.gov, the texture of health care in America is changing. For instance, there's been disruption in the old pattern of health care providers sending bills and the insurance companies paying their portion. Now, some insurers are tying what they pay to how well the doctors, hospitals, and labs are doing their job. Plus, call it "Social and Environmental investing," call it "Impact Investing," applying our personal values to our portfolios is not a new idea. One big example in the 1980s, when college students forced their universities to sell their stakes in companies that did business with apartheid South Africa. But now a group of countries has come together and is recommending that governments help impact investing become an even more powerful force for making the world a better place.
