  • Economy center stage in April election in Canada's Alberta province

    Economy center stage in April election in Canada's Alberta provincePremier Rachel Notley's left-leaning New Democratic Party won a shock victory in traditionally conservative Alberta in 2015, ending 44 years of conservative rule, but inherited a provincial economy rocked by the collapse of global oil prices. Notley was initially an ally of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and backed his attempts to please the oil industry and environmentalists by championing export pipelines while also introducing carbon pricing. The relationship soured last year over efforts to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline, prompting Notley to pull her support for Trudeau's carbon plan.

  • 11 of the Best Index Funds to Buy Today

    11 of the Best Index Funds to Buy TodayThe recent passing of Vanguard founder John Bogle was a great loss for the investment world. Bogle was responsible for introducing index investing to the fund industry, and in the process, he helped millions of Americans reduce their costs and reach their retirement goals sooner.Bogle launched the first index fund in 1976 and lived to see his creations grow to a $4.6 trillion industry as of 2018. Capital continues to pour into indexed products, and Moody's predicts they will grow to represent 50% of the total investment market within five years. This popularity has grown because of index funds' numerous benefits, which include ... * Lower costs. Index funds don't need to employ teams of research analysts or portfolio managers trying to beat the market by constantly trading stocks. As a result, costs are significantly lower than actively managed funds. * Diversification. Index funds often seek to track a broad benchmark and frequently own hundreds if not thousands of different stocks, whereas the typical actively managed fund holds fewer than 100 stocks. The breadth of holdings helps reduce market risk. * Greater transparency. Index funds have a straightforward objective: match the performance of a market benchmark. These products don't suffer "style drift," which occurs when fund managers goose returns by investing in stocks that don't meet the fund's guidelines. * Superior performance. An annual fund-performance report from S&P; Dow Jones Indices showed that in 2018, the majority of actively managed large-cap mutual funds trailed the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index - for the ninth consecutive year.Here are 11 of the best index funds to buy for a variety of financial goals. This list consists mostly of ETFs but includes a few mutual fund options (including mutual fund versions of ETFs). SEE ALSO: The 19 Best ETFs for a Prosperous 2019

  • Trudeau Spends Budget Windfall on ‘Laundry List’ for Voters

    Trudeau Spends Budget Windfall on ‘Laundry List’ for VotersFinance Minister Bill Morneau unveiled his fourth fiscal plan Tuesday in Ottawa, announcing C$22.8 billion ($17.1 billion) over six years in new spending funded by a spike in revenue. In a year Trudeau had once promised to have balanced the budget, he’ll instead head into an October election with an annual deficit of nearly C$20 billion. The plan continues the hallmark of Trudeau’s fiscal policy since his 2015 election -- a reluctance to return to balance even in the face of a revenue windfall -- and the approach has supporters and critics.

  • Is cryptocurrency mining decentralised?

    Is cryptocurrency mining decentralised?Cryptocurrency mining has long been a pastime of many avid cryptocurrency fans.
