Attacks in Egypt's Sinai kill 33 security personnel

ISMAILIA (Reuters) - Two attacks in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula killed 33 security personnel on Friday, security sources said, in some of the worst anti-state violence since Islamist President Mohamed Mursi was overthrown last year. The violence prompted Egypt to declare a three-month state of emergency in parts of North Sinai, where the violence took place, the state news agency reported. The attacks are a setback for the government, which had managed over the past few months to make some progress in the struggle against an Islamist militant insurgency in the Sinai as it focuses on trying to repair the economy #Economy #India #Japan #Technology #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion

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

Brazil's Lula back campaigning for Rousseff - and maybe himself

BELO HORIZONTE Brazil (Reuters) - He remains the one true rock star of Brazilian politics, introduced to an adoring crowd of thousands over the weekend as "our eternal president." Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, 68, is back on the campaign trail after a brief hiatus, hoping that a burst of his signature charisma and rapport with the poor will be enough to push his chosen successor, President Dilma Rousseff, to a re-election victory in a closely fought runoff vote on Sunday. The emcee's introduction at a rally in Belo Horizonte on Saturday also touched, intentionally or not, on an intriguing subplot - whether Lula, who oversaw an economic boom as president from 2003 to 2010, is laying the groundwork for his own return as a candidate in 2018 #Economy #facebook #India #Japan #Technology #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #brazilian

Brazil's Neves closing campaign cash gap thanks to banks and ethanol

Brazil's Neves closing campaign cash gap thanks to banks and ethanol

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - A late injection of campaign cash is helping business-friendly opposition candidate Aecio Neves push Brazil's presidential runoff against incumbent Dilma Rousseff down to the wire, eroding her huge fundraising advantage. Many of the banks, builders and ethanol companies that led contributions to Neves doubled down on the centrist senator last month as his sudden polling surge ahead of a first-round vote turned him from an also-ran into a real contender. Total fundraising for Neves nearly doubled in September to about 140 million reais ($58 million), according to his campaign treasurer Jose Gregori, a former justice minister. #Business #Economy #India #China #Brazil #France #Arabic #Russia #Argentina #Latin America #opinion
