    In this photo taken March 2, 2011, Defense Secretary Robert Gates with Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, left, testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington before the House Appropriations Committee. "Health care is eating the department alive," Gates said bluntly two years ago. The explosive expense of health care rivals what the Pentagon shells out to buy fighter aircraft, submarines and high-tech weapons, and is about half of the $118 billion that the Obama administration wants in the next budget to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Duvvuri Subbarao attends an annual monetary policy review meeting in Mumbai May 3, 2011. India's central bank raised interest rates by a sharper-than-expected 50 basis points on Tuesday and signalled it would battle stubbornly high inflation even at the expense of the government's economic growth ambitions. The rate rise was its ninth since March 2010 and exceeded expectations for a 25 basis point rise, although the case for stronger action had been building since figures showed March inflation reached nearly 9 percent, above the central bank's perceived comfort zone.

It is one of many high-priced development projects in the suburbs of the captial. As Egypt charts a course forward to what many hope will be a democratic nation, officials face the daunting task of keeping the economy stable while undoing a legacy of corruption and cronyism widely seen as favoring companies and a minority of businessmen at the expense of millions.

    Galleon hedge fund founder Raj Rajaratnam leaves Manhattan Federal Court in New York April 20, 2011. Rajaratnam wanted to "conquer the stock market at the expense of the law," a U.S. prosecutor said in closing arguments of the hedge fund manager's insider trading trial on Wednesday. But a lawyer for the Galleon Group founder countered in his summation that "the government's narrow view is very unfair" and Rajaratnam acted legally in seeking out information about investments on behalf of his customers.

Rajaratnam's voice rumbled over speakers in a New York courtroom as prosecutor Reed Brodsky replayed excerpts of phone taps that he repeatedly said amounted to "overwhelming" evidence of guilt.

    Wedding themed chocolates are seen at a vendor's presentation at a wedding show in New York April 2, 2008. Investment bank bailouts, home foreclosures and job losses have spread economic gloom through America but in New York, at least, there's one industry still weathering the storm - high-end weddings. Cake makers, florists, wedding planners and dress-makers at a wedding show this month said brides were still determined to enjoy their big day with almost no expense spared.
