Fed official: Jobs report won't stop taper
At least one Federal Reserve member doesn't think last week's jobs report is reason enough for the Fed to put its tapering plans on hold. San Francisco Federal Reserve President John Williams said Monday that one month's job numbers won't make or break Fed policy, and said he felt the central bank will still begin to unwind its purchases of bonds and mortgage-backed securities later this year as planned.
Taxpayer guide to Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act adds or amends more than 40 provisions of the U.S. tax code. For the IRS, of course, that means more work. For individuals and businesses, Obamacare means both new taxes and new tax breaks. A bunch are intended strictly to raise revenue -- for instance, a new tax on medical device makers. But others are designed to encourage certain behaviors, such as the mandate that individuals buy insurance or pay a penalty.
Meet the craft beer billionaire
Craft beer has a new billionaire. C. James Koch, founder and chairman of Sam Adams-maker Boston Beer Company, now has a spot on Bloomberg's Billionaires Index.

Store asks applicants to dance for a job
Alan Bacon didn't want to dance, but he needed that job. So, when recruiters at the Currys retail store in Wales asked him to dance at his job interview, Bacon did. Not that the job had anything to do with dancing. It was a position in customer assistance at the store. A 22-year-old film school graduate from Cardiff, Bacon wore his best suit for the job interview at the end of August. There were eight other applicants who showed up at the U.K. store. The candidates were promptly split into two groups and told to dance with each other to qualify for the interview.
