Scots vote on independence, United Kingdom's fate on knife-edge

EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Scotland voted on Thursday on whether to stay within the United Kingdom or end the 307-year-old union with England and become an independent nation in a finely balanced referendum with far-reaching consequences. From remote highlands and islands to the tough city estates of Glasgow, people were almost equally divided over a vote watched closely by Britain's allies, investors and restive regions at home and abroad #India #Business #Brazil #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

U.S. giving $53 million in new aid for Ukraine's struggle with Russian incursion

EBRD warns post-Cold War "peace dividend" at risk

LONDON (Reuters) - The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development warned on Thursday that the crisis over Ukraine could erode some of the economic "peace dividend" eastern Europe gained when the Cold War ended. It said conflicts in the region, which are disrupting trade and diverting government spending, made its economic forecasts "subject to an exceptional degree of uncertainty and downside risks to the economic outlook are high." The organisation shaved another slice off its regional forecasts for the year, predicted Russia would dip into recession in 2015 and urged the European Central Bank to consider quantitative easing to revive the economy. The EBRD, which monitors central and eastern Europe and some of Europe's neighbours in Asia and North Africa, trimmed 0.1 percentage point off its 2014 forecast for the overall bloc to leave it at an anaemic 1.3 percent, less than half of what it predicted at the start of the year #India #Business #France #Arabic #Russia #Europe #markets #Argentina #Mexico #Ukraine #opinion

Libya's elected parliament rejects PM's new cabinet as oil sector takes hit

BENGHAZI Libya (Reuters) - Libya's elected parliament has rejected the new cabinet of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni, dealing a fresh blow to the acting premier whose government was forced to flee the capital Tripoli last month after it was taken over by militants. Western powers and Arab neighbours fear Libya will break up as the country is divided among competing tribes and the armed groups which helped oust Muammar Gaddafi three years ago and now dominate the desert nation. #facebook #United States #India #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico #Acting
