At a conclave with foreign leaders, the new secretary of state also discussed progress in the fight against the militants, and urged diplomats to do more.


President Obama won the election pledging to spend hundreds of billions of dollars and pledging to enact new laws, while changing or removing old ones. Where that money goes, industries rise. Where budget cuts and unfavorable laws are passed, industries fall.

Companies that could benefit

  • Renewable Energy companies are yearning to get more support from the government, but already Obama has given out billions in the form of tax credits and subsidies to Solar Power and Wind Energy.
