Half of all Americans with children do not have a legal will, according to an extensive survey done by the legal service RocketLawyer.
“While the survey was conducted in 2012, the attitudes Americans have on inheritance and legacy matters tend to remain static through the years,” says Reid Abedeen, a partner at Safeguard Investment Advisory Group, LLC. He says there’s often a psychological disconnection in after-death planning.
PITTSBURGH--For global car makers, India represents an emerging opportunity, and challenge. The Indian middle class is expanding rapidly: 267 million people in 2015-16; 547 million by 2025-26. High savings rates create a growing pool of Rupees available for luxury items such as cars, TVs, smart phones, according to AWG Research.

Like many emerging markets, India is defined by two trends. First, two-thirds of the population (a pool of 800 million) is under age 35. Second, in a country notorious for poor “wired” infrastructure, voice/data transmission is exclusively wireless. It’s estimated that in 2015 the number of Indian smart phone users, spurred by 225 million new subscribers, will surpass the US.
