    ... For years, Japan was Asia’s richest and most powerful economy. It was the first Asian economy to industrialise, and the emerging Asian tigers - Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and later China - merely followed in its tracks. Now, however, Japan is steadily being overtaken.

    As gas prices reach record highs across many parts of the country, Americans have been blaming oil companies. But as much as they are disliked, the oil and gas industry is also an indispensable part of many states and an asset to their local economies. 24/7 Wall St. has identified the 10 states with the most oil reserves, or the estimated amount of oil in the state, and examined the effects that the industry has on their economies.

    America’s greenest cities, based on the percentage of people who think and act in an eco-conscious way AND the percentage of people who do not think and act in an eco-conscious way and may have a negative attitude toward environmental issues; the percentage of people who make a conscious effort to recycle; the number of public-transportation trips per capita for the fourth quarter of 2011; and the percent of households that that use solar heating.

    The Occupy movement has brought economic inequality to the headlines.... While this has captured the public’s attention, differences in wealth have always existed, and states have tried to level the playing field by redistributing money through education spending, unemployment benefits, health care, welfare, and other means. 24/7 Wall St. has examined government spending by state in a number of categories to identify those that give the most and least in money and benefits to their residents. These are the states that give the most.

    Fundraising at colleges and universities is not unlike the madness that surrounds the NCAA’s annual basketball tournament. The big, major conference schools can dominate at times but the smaller, so-called mid-major schools often give their bigger rivals their comeuppance in a shocking upset.

    As most people continue to batten down the financial hatches, an elite group of the world’s “stateless super-rich” is blossoming, and transcending geographical boundaries to purchase properties in major cities across the globe. With no strong ties to specific countries, these individuals lead nomadic, season-driven lives. Their choice of where to live at any one time is based on that location’s climate, their children’s education, tax constraints or which of their friends they want to lunch with on any particular day.

    Critics of recent efforts to regulate for-profit colleges have suggested that the Obama Administration is waging a “war” on for-profit universities. The reality is exactly the opposite: the for-profit sector is challenging a centuries-old practice of separating philanthropy from business.
