Supreme Court's Campaign Finance Case Gets New Firepower

18:20, 31/8/2013 .. 0 comments .. Link

Mitch McConnell (Photo: Stephen Lance Dennee, AP) Story Highlights Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell gets time to argue Case is successor to Citizens United, McCain-Feingold SHARECONNECT 32 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court has granted Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell oral argument time in a major campaign finance case being heard in early October, giving opponents of current contribution limits new firepower. McConnell is the nation's leading opponent of campaign finance restrictions, who lost his effort to defeat the McCain-Feingold law's limits on corporate and union donations a decade ago but won the Citizens United case in 2010 that freed corporations to spend unlimited amounts independently on elections. By allowing McConnell to take some of the precious 30 minutes his side will have to make its case, the court on Friday further assured that the case will take on the aura of those two previous cases -- pitting Republican-aligned backers of unlimited spending against Democratic-aligned groups that want to reduce the influence of money in elections. The case is being brought by Alabama millionaire Shaun McCutcheon, a Republican businessman who objects to the overall limits federal regulations place on campaign donations.

Report: General Electric plans to spin off consumer finance business with possible IPO

Credit: Reuters/Adnan Abidi NEW DELHI | Thu Aug 29, 2013 8:46am EDT NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on Thursday asked state-run banks to ensure flow of credit to every sector of industry, indicating the need for funding projects amid an economic slowdown. The banks have been asked to assist industrial borrowers who were facing difficulties and be sympathetic towards genuine defaulters, Chidambaram told a parliamentary panel attached to the finance ministry. Economic growth virtually halved in two years to 5 percent in the fiscal year that ended in March -- the lowest level in a decade -- and most economists surveyed by Reuters in the past week expect 2013/14 to be worse.

GE spokesman Seth Martin declined to comment on the report. CEO Jeff Immelt told analysts and investors at a conference in May that his company wanted a smaller GE Capital. He said they wanted to reduce the finance arms assets from $402 billion in this years first quarter to between $300 billion and $350 billion by the end of next year. That is going to create excess cash in GE Capital, and we are going to use that excess cash to buy back stock, Immelt said. That asset total had dropped to $391 billion by the second quarter, according to Martin.

Think Finance Hires Craig A. Nies as Chief Analytics Officer

(Bob Chamberlin / Los Angeles Times / July 2, 2013) Also By Angel Jennings and Abby Sewell August 27, 2013, 7:28 p.m. Compton City Councilman Isaac Galvan belatedly filed mandatory campaign finance forms after state officials threatened to open a formal investigation when he missed several deadlines. The financial statements, which were submitted Thursday, show that Galvan spent $29,000 on his race to become Compton's first Latino elected official. Galvan also reported that he raised only half as much as he spent. Most of his donations came from people outside of Compton in neighboring southeast communities. According to the documents, Galvan has outstanding debts totaling $15,500, most of which was attributed to printing campaign fliers. The 26-year-old reported that he owes Angel Gonzalez, his former campaign manager, almost $12,000. Galvan hired Gonzalez as his community liaison when he won the election. Gonzalez was subsequently fired by Compton's city manager after The Times published a story that revealed Gonzalez's criminal history. In 2002, Gonzalez was convicted of a felony conspiracy charge reduced to a misdemeanor at his sentencing for sending out attack mailers with copies of fake official documents.

German finance minister: 'I don't see' any further eurozone bailouts

We don't want a German Europe but we want a strong Europe and that means every member state including Germany has to increase its competitiveness," Schaeuble said. "A stronger Europe means that everyone has to do its duty and not to ask for more money by others -- that's the wrong way to get a strong Europe, that's the wrong incentive." German FM: Greece needs until 2022 German FM: Eurozone in a better place His comments come ahead of the September 22 election, as Merkel faces a German electorate weary of Europe's largest economy helping to bail out troubled eurozone nations, whose debt woes have threatened the stability of the currency. Greek unemployment hits record 27.6% Greece, along with three other eurozone countries -- Portugal, Ireland and Cyprus -- remain dependent on rescue loans from the EU and International Monetary Fund (IMF). The 17-nation eurozone has emerged from its longest ever recession, growing 0.3% in the second quarter after 18 months of contraction. Unemployment rates remain high, but worries that the debt crisis could spread to larger economies such as Spain and Italy -- which both saw borrowing costs climb dangerously high last year -- have abated.

The financial statements, which were submitted Thursday, show that Galvan spent $29,000 on his race to become Compton's first Latino elected official. Galvan also reported that he raised only half as much as he spent. Most of his donations came from people outside of Compton in neighboring southeast communities.

Gonzalez was subsequently fired by Compton's city manager after The Times published a story that revealed Gonzalez's criminal history. In 2002, Gonzalez was convicted of a felony conspiracy charge reduced to a misdemeanor at his sentencing for sending out attack mailers with copies of fake official documents. In a separate case, he was convicted on two misdemeanor counts of sending out misleading campaign fliers. Compton's Latino residents have been trying for decades to get a Latino candidate elected to city office. So it was a joyous moment for some when Galvan won a seat on Compton's City Council in June.

The Private Enterprise Foundation, led by its President, Nana Osei Bonsu, also shares in the Finance Ministers advocacy to include micro finance companies in the institutional support framework of EDAIF since they support activities of businesses that make up a big chunk of economic activities in the country.

Finance Ministry all ears as banks line up plans to boost forex inflows

Under the circumstances, instead of hedging the dollar in the market, a swap with RBI a under which banks give dollar and receive rupee from the central bank a would make the rupee loan pricing affordable for borrowers. While the dollar supplied by the banks would add to RBI's forex reserves , the arrangement would entail RBI bearing the exchange rate risk and offering a cheaper hedging arrangement than what banks have to otherwise pay if they cover the exchange fluctuation risk in the open market. "This would be attractive for banks which can use the money to buy government bonds and lend. Also, their overseas branches can offer leverage to NRI clients," said a treasurer with an MNC bank.

Finance Ministry seeks cabinet nod for stuck infra projects

Most of our graduates have found work placements rapidly at Islamic banks and regular banks, as well as Islamic insurance companies and Islamic investment companies, he added. Al Mansour also said that they rarely come across a case where a graduate faces difficulty in finding employment opportunities. In line with the UAEs goals to make the country a global capital for the Islamic industry, economy and finance, KIC is also planning to offer more higher education programmes in Islamic economics such as Islamic hospitality and Islamic insurance. We believe that while Islamic finance has garnered all the headlines for the past several decades, there is a growing desire for other products and services to be delivered to Muslim clients in a holistic Sharia-compliant manner, said Neil Miller, the global head of Islamic finance at KIC. We have already seen evidence of this in the form of hotels which do not serve alcohol and provide facilities for Muslim families.

VOLTA FINANCE - JULY MONTHLY REPORT

"Some projects have been cleared in the last two months and there has been a spurt in credit growth as well. We believe that once these projects get on track, the NPAs (non-performing assets) will also come down accordingly," the official said. Bank credit grew 16.6% in August compared with the growth in the same month last year, according to Reserve Bank of India data. After his review meeting with bankers last month, Finance Minister P Chidambaram had said that his ministry's first target was to cover 30-40 projects, which just needed a little push or one last clearance before they could take off.

At the end of July, Volta held 10.7m in cash, including 0.3m in relation with the Liquidity Enhancement Contract and 0.2m received in relation with its currency hedge positions. Volta could be considered as having roughly 2m available to invest considering the recent trade for 7.4m that is unsettled at the end of July. MARKET ENVIRONMENT In July 2013, credit spreads tightened in Europe and in the US. The 5 year iTraxx European Main index and 5 year iTraxx European Crossover Index (series 19) spreads went respectively, from 119 and 477 bps at the end of June 2013 to 100 and 404 bps at the end of July 2013. During the same period, credit spreads in the US, as illustrated by the 5y CDX main index (series 20) tightened from 87 to 75 bps.

I still have a strong desire to purchase books, often as fast (or faster) than I can read them. Sure, Im more efficient at buying them than I used to be as I utilize more used book services, Kindle Daily Deals, and so on, but I still spend more money on books than I should and I often give into book impulse buys. When I go grocery shopping, I do a good job of sticking to my list when I shop by myself, but when my children are with me, its a lot harder. Its not because they ask for things or put stuff in the cart, but because my focus is diverted. I end up making less-than-perfect shopping choices andI know that I am.

KIC said the programme will develop a clear understanding of the structure of the Islamic finance industry. The bachelors degree will provide students with the opportunity of learning Islamic principles and methods of banking, economic, finance and accounting through Sharia. The move follows the success of the colleges associate degree courses over the past six years. Students in the programme will develop a clear understanding of the structure, functions, processes and management of Islamic financial institutions and will develop the practical skills required to play an integral role in these institutions after graduation, said Dr Eisa Al Mansour, head of the Islamic banking and finance programme at KIC.

German finance minister: future aid to Greece will be much smaller than existing bailout deals

Our busy lives are crazy enough without having to compare five hundred mutual funds we just want simple ways to manage our finances and save a little money. Recent posts The Christian Science Monitor Weekly Digital Edition Over a long period of time, it all presents a very positive picture.

Schaeuble was quoted as telling Germanys Handelsblatt daily that the prospect of further aid is being held out on condition that Greece fulfills its obligations and in the expectation that this will be about far smaller sums than to date, because Greece will then already have a primary surplus. He said he cant name any specific figures or measures and that decisions will have to be made next year, but again rejected the idea of a second debt writedown for Greece following a massive debt restructuring deal agreed with private sector bondholders last year. Asked where the money for a further Greek aid package would come from, Schaeuble said that hasnt been decided but noted that the eurozones rescue fund, the European Stability Mechanism, is far from exhausted. Germanys opposition has seized on Schaeubles comments about Greece to attack the governments credibility ahead of Sept. 22 elections. But officials are insisting the minister was really saying nothing new, noting that they have long said more aid was likely. Schaeuble said it was nonsense to assert that he was hiding anything.

ECB chief Mario Draghi actually said after the last meeting on rates on August 1 that rates will remain low for some time. The ECB has based this 'forward guidance' on the inflation outlook remaining subdued, and growth weak.

Morocco names new interim finance minister

The rupee, one of Asia's worst performing currencies, bounced back 2.09 percent -- its biggest one-day gain since September 2012 -- to end trade at 63.20 Friday, up from its record closing low of 64.55 the previous day. The Indian unit, which had hit a new lifetime intraday low of 65.56 Thursday, was boosted Friday by comments by Chidambaram and the Reserve Bank of India. Chidambaram said the currency panic was "unwarranted" and the rupee had "overshot" its "appropriate level". He added there was no plan to impose more capital controls on top of ones announced this month, and that reviving growth, which hit a decade low of five percent last year, would be the government's focus. The central bank governor Duvvuri Subbarao, meanwhile, dismissed investor fears India is hurtling towards a balance of payments crisis similar to one in 1991.

Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) activists protest the rupee A wealthy Moroccan businessman was named interim finance minister on Friday, as the ruling Islamist party pursues efforts to form a new coalition government after its main ally quit.AFP/File RABAT (AFP) A wealthy Moroccan businessman was named interim finance minister on Friday, as the ruling Islamist party pursues efforts to form a new coalition government after its main ally quit. Aziz Akhennouch, a technocrat in his 50s who headed the ministry of agriculture and fisheries in the two previous governments, was appointed to the key cabinet post, the official MAP news agency reported. He replaces Nizar Baraka, whose Istiqlal party withdrew from the ruling coalition in July after strongly criticising the Islamist Party of Justice and Development (PJD) for failing to shore up the economy and solve pressing social problems. Morocco's government has been hamstrung since May when Istiqlal first announced its intention to withdraw from the PJD-led coalition, which won the largest share of votes in parliamentary elections two years ago. Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane has been negotiating in recent weeks with the National Rally of Independents party, to which Akhennouch formerly belonged, to form a new cabinet and avoid early elections.
