Un gros merci à Barack Obama ! Canada Économie États-Unis Québec

Le plan de réforme de Wall Street de Barack Obama pourrait bien être bénéfique pour le Canada. La réglementation plus sévère pourrait en effet inciter les grandes sociétés financières américaines à déplacer leurs activités au Canada pour pouvoir profiter d’un environnement réglementaire moins contraignant.

Cette réforme prévoit entre autres une quasi-interdiction du commerce des produits dérivés. Cette disposition pourrait avantager la bourse de Montréal qui se spécialise dans les échanges de produits dérivés.

Pendant que les socialistes présents à Washington s’évertuent à affaiblir les États-Unis, le Canada est « open for business » !

GOP wins House seat in Obama’s Hawaii home district
USA Today

Republicans scored a midterm election victory Saturday when Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou won a Democratic-held House seat in Hawaii in the district where President Obama grew up — the latest triumph for the GOP as it looks to take back control of Congress.

Djou’s victory was a blow to Obama and other Democrats who could not rally around a candidate and find away to win a congressional race that should have been a cakewalk. The seat had been held by a Democrat for nearly 20 years and is located where Obama was born and spent most of his childhood.

« This is a momentous day. We have sent a message to the United States Congress. We have sent a message to the national Democrats. We have sent a message to the machine, » Djou said. « The congressional seat is not owned by one political party. This congressional seat is owned by the people. »

Republicans see the victory as a powerful statement about their momentum heading into November. They already sent a Republican to the U.S. Senate to replace the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts— a place that was once thought to be the most hostile of territories for the GOP. Now Republicans can say they won a congressional seat in the former backyard of the president and in a state that gave Obama 72% of the vote two years ago.
