BRICS nations to work on creating new ratings agency outside U.S. control

Ratings agencies like S&P and Moody's have great power to determine the value and risk of nearly all securitized assets in the global financial sector, and their role in the 2008 credit crisis and sub-prime collapse is well documented.  But recently, their application has gone far beyond the scope of simply scrutinizing and rating financial instruments and it appears now that pressures from the U.S. gov ...

Think Russia has been hit hardest by lower oil prices? Think again!

U.S. re-igniting Cold War in Ukraine and this time Russia may respond with force
