Affect of improving economy on stock markets

This article discusses the current relationship between the U.S. economy and recent stock market trends. There have been indications of a strengthening economy including a drop in unemployment rates. Common patterns would expect the stock markets to increase as the economy strengthens, however that is not the case. Economists theorize that the change in trends is due to the fact that the Federal Reserve has been fueling trillions of dollars into the market economy since 2009, and as a result has caused a decrease in interest rates.

This article discusses a relevant example of international trade. Ultimately, the trade relationship between the U.S. and India had been limited in recent years and as a result the level of trade between the two countries hasn’t met the expectations set between Obama and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2009. The main factors that have impeded business are due to recent actions taken by the Indian government, including compulsory licensing and tarrifs.
