This week on BGOV's Capital Impact show hosted by Allen Scott:

  • Bloomberg Government's Senior Finance Analyst Cady North brings us up to speed with multiple topics this week including Dodd-Frank, the potential for a Volker Rule within a week, and a report card on the new SEC Charmain Mary Jo White. Cady will explain them all this week on Bloomberg Government's Capital Impact.

  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Nov. 7 announced a preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oils, a primary source of artificial trans fats in certain types of food, are not generally recognized as safe. Bloomberg Government Senior Health Care Analyst Brian Rye discusses how removing trans fat from the nation's food supply won't hurt larger restaurants and food companies, but could be the end of smaller mom and pop shops. Are salt and sugar next?
