As Cuban economy stagnates, economists press for deeper reforms

HAVANA (Reuters) - Some of Cuba's best-known economists are openly questioning the very core of the Soviet-style command economy and saying market reforms under way are too modest to boost weak growth. Emboldened by freer debate in the country, they are increasingly vocal in criticizing rigid instructions coming down from the top and the uneven management of policies across the economy, from banking to agriculture. Their influence on government policy-makers is difficult to gauge due to the secretive nature of the ruling Communist Party, but they clearly have been given leeway to call for changes. #Economy #facebook #Japan #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Argentina #Mexico #opinion

Japan's top court orders retrial in "maternity harassment" case

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Supreme Court on Thursday ordered a retrial for a woman who sued a former employer over a demotion during her pregnancy, handing down a partial victory that could encourage others to come forward. The case was the first of its kind to make it to Japan's highest court, amid efforts by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government to boost the role of women in the economy. The Supreme Court invalidated a ruling in favour of the former employer, made by a high court in Hiroshima in western Japan. #Economy #United States #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

Bill Gates is wrong, the rich-poor divide is only getting wider

The former Microsoft bosss faith in the system that gave him all the money he now spends to fight inequality is perhaps instinctive. But there is ample evidence now that inequality is inbuilt in the capitalist system. #Economy #ToTheContrary #Poverty #Bill Gates #poor
