Marcia Wagner, a Wagner Law Group attorney and ThinkAdvisor contributor, told ThinkAdvisor Washington Bureau Chief Melanie Waddell she thinks the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule will stay pretty much as is. Wagner said the entities affected by the rule have already expended a lot of resources and money on proper implementation. Wagner said the old 1976 rule is dated and there’s really no way to go back. She said there’s “no clear course of action if this rule doesn’t go forward.” Wagner also told ThinkAdvisor, in her view “the vector of this rule is the correct way to go for our country.” On June 9, part of the rule became law -- it will be in full effect on January 1.

Amazon is adding yet another reason to shop online. The online retailer announced Amazon Prime Wardrobe and apparently Wall Street is taking notice. Nordstrom closed down at nearly 4 percent and JC Penny closed down at nearly 5 percent after Amazon revealed the new service on Tuesday.
So here’s how Amazon Prime Wardrobe works. You try before you buy and pay for what you want to keep. You get 10 percent off your order if you keep three or four items, 20 percent off if you keep five or more. Everything else you don’t want goes back into the box and onto your doorstep. So basically you never have to leave your house to shop for a completely new outfit.
It’s currently in beta, but you can sign-up for a notification on when it launches.
