Is Alibaba a good investment?

Is Alibaba a Good Investment? Alibaba.com! What is it, and is Alibaba a good investment? GettingMoneySmart.com set out to find the answers. It started like a soft breeze from the East. It gathered momentum and buzz until it became the BIGGEST “IT” THING SINCE FACEBOOK! Alibaba is China’s largest online company for the transacting of commerce. It is primarily a domestic entity, which sounds self-limiting, but if we consider the scope of China’s emerging discovery of internet capability, we can see the potential that exists. China leads the world in folks. Those folks, all by themselves, have the power to change the way the world conducts business.

Can they be too sexy at Victoria’s Secret in this day and age? Diana Cherry, a mother of three in Seattle, got so angry that she started a social media petition calling for a boycott.

Taxes Cause US Corporations to Flee

High corporate taxes the U.S. government is levying against companies are triggering a mass exodus of U.S. corporations to avoid the nation’s 35% corporate tax rate. Some corporations are even considering mergers with European counterparts so they can move headquarters to nations with lower tax rates. The latest is New York-based Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE).
