How the Egyptian military’s takeover is viewed could have financial consequences. A federal law calls for cutting aid to a country where the military deposes a democratically elected government. Is that what happened in Egypt? Or… could it be called… something else? There may be more jobs out there, but too many people are looking for full time work, when all there is, is part time. The film "World War Z" offered $50 tickets for a sneak preview with perks. But Steven Spielberg and George Lucas see a night at the cinema becoming as expensive as a night on Broadway.
