Is Healthcare Reform Really a Game Changer?
Recent headlines in the business section have been less about stock market performance and more about health care reform. That shift in focus has led to a period of low stock market volatility. Low volatility generally bodes well for the stock market. While there will certainly be changes within health care as a result of the recent reforms, however, the new laws will not be as much of a game changer for the 84 percent of the economy that is not devoted to health care. It will take years before the law is fully implemented, and the complete details are still a bit sketchy.
