In this Economy….Thomson Reuters profit doubles

As you mull over the latest West invoice, sip on this:

According to a story in The Age, “Thomson Reuters Corp., the news and data provider created by a merger last year, said second-quarter profit more than doubled, fueled by cost savings from the deal and demand for the Westlaw legal service.”

Notable: “Revenue in the professional division, including legal and tax products, gained 4 per cent, excluding the impact of currency translations.”
