Week In Review for week of 9/8/14:
Economy – Baxter International
Baxter International’s pharmaceutical arm to change name; headquarters to remain in Illinois. The pharmaceutical division will be spun off from Baxter International, a Deerfield, Illinois-based firm that historically specializes in health care supplies, to form a new, global stand-alone company. The new firm, Baxalta Incorporated, is expected to become fully independent in mid-2015.
