Fed to take up 'too big to fail' emergency lending curb
Mon, 30 Nov 2015 05:12:54 -0500
The Federal Reserve building in WashingtonThe Federal Reserve Board will consider on Monday a proposal to curb its emergency lending powers, a change demanded by Congress after the central bank's controversial decision to aid AIG , Citigroup and others in 2008.

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 10:02:17 -0500

IMF's yuan inclusion signals less risk taking in China
Sun, 29 Nov 2015 20:28:48 -0500
A customer counts Chinese Yuan notes at a market in BeijingSHANGHAI/NEW YORK (Reuters) - When the International Monetary Fund agrees on Monday to add the Chinese yuan to its reserves basket in the biggest shake-up in more than three decades, the IMF can afford itself a congratulatory nod. By acknowledging the yuan as a major global currency alongside the dollar, euro, yen, and pound, as is widely expected, IMF members will endorse the efforts of China's economic reformers and by doing so hope that will spur fresh change in China. A slowing in the pace has implications for those who bet that making the yuan a global reserve currency will give it a boost.

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 16:11:42 -0500
A primary school student gets into a minivan as her mother picks her up outside her school, in BeijingAutomakers are betting that Chinese families will embrace the mini-van, hoping the larger, unsexy sibling of the bestselling SUV will become the next big thing just as Beijing relaxes the one-child policy. Mini-vans, or multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs), were front and center at the Guangzhou auto show, where Volkswagen AG presented a supersized version of its Touran and Guangzhou Automobile Group subsidiary GAC Motor showcased a prototype mini-van. Industry experts say the appetite for bigger cars is strong enough in China, where extended families often live under one roof, to potentially turn it into the largest MPV market after the United States, where automakers have sold big cars to families for years.
