Bloomberg provides real-time and archived financial and market data, pricing, trading, news and communications tools to corporations, news organizations, financial and legal professionals and individuals around the world.

Bloomberg is creating a new web-based information product that will report on, analyze and quantify the impact of government actions on business and industry.
