Wall Street strategy rethink likely after Obama is re-elected
The financial industry largely bet on Mitt Romney to win the presidential election, but President Barack Obama's re-election is expected to force the sector to rebuild its relationship with the administration and its appointed regulators. "I think the Obama win ... will lead to more accountability and tighter regulation on Wall Street," said Chris Tobe, a principal at Stable Value Consultants. "Especially after a big shift to Romney from Wall Street, Obama, I believe, will be less likely to hold back on regulation this term."

Sandy recovery might spur construction activity and jobs
U.S. construction work and employment are expected to increase as basic infrastructure, including residential buildings and transportation, require repair because of superstorm Sandy. However, the projected job increase is still less than the favorable growth rate, analysts say.

Fixing N.J.'s aging infrastructure remained a huge challenge:
New Jersey's aging infrastructure is direly ill-prepared for the impact of extreme weather and it remained vulnerable any time there is widespread flooding, this article notes. A 2009 ASCE report said the state needed to spend about $7 billion over the next 20 years to upgrade its drinking water infrastructure and another $9 billion for wastewater treatment plants upgrades. "The numbers are so big it is going to rely on federal dollars and borrowing," said Rich Keevey, a state budget crisis task force member and former state budget director.
