Collectors ran into the law

The bill on collection in Russia is subject to change. This initiative was made by the Prosecutor General, who has to process a shaft of complaints from citizens about illegal actions of collectors. According to the Prosecutor General, the sphere needs to be licensed instead of the previously planned creation of a self-regulatory institution.

The volume of overdue monetary obligations of citizens to banks reached 310.2 billion rubles. By July of this year, collectors had sold overdue debts worth more than 86 billion rubles.

Dow Jones. 116 years guarding stock markets

On October 8, 1896, the world first heard the phrase, which today necessarily sounds in thousands of news releases around the world. An index created by renowned journalist Charles Henry Dow, which to this day is considered one of the main US stock indicators and is a guideline for the entire world economy, was presented on this day.

Investors invested in bonds, the income from which could be calculated, and interest was guaranteed by the property of the companies issuing these securities. That is, behind them were real physical assets. But the shares were considered an unreliable tool, although much more dynamic and promising huge profits, not limited to fixed interest. The stocks were mainly traded by speculators; it was not possible to pull really big money into this sphere. In order to trade stocks profitably and understand where the market is going, it was necessary to monitor the price dynamics of a whole line of such securities, which was very difficult.
