MSN Money launches Money & Politics section


MSN Money has started a new page on its website covering the intersection of business and politics.

Amey Stone, deputy managing editor of MSN Money, writes, “Why a section dedicated to money and politics? As election 2012 approaches, we’ve found readers are clamoring to learn more about how campaign proposals could affect their own personal finances. Will income tax rates rise? Will the U.S. budget deficit spark higher interest rates? Will the economy slow if the government cuts back on Federal stimulus?

“The stock market has rallied so far this year in anticipation of a stronger U.S. economy, but many forecasters remain doubtful that robust growth is ahead. The actions of the upcoming election season could dictate if the US economy continues on a pace of recovery or starts slowing once again.

“To stay on top of all these developments – and track the progress of candidates — check out MSN Money & Politics daily. You can also follow us on Twitter @money_politics.”
