What will China’s Black Monday mean for the UK? 29.8.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
As jittery investors brace for more shockwaves after last week’s rout on world markets, we look at the impact, from property to petrol prices This was supposed to be the year when normality returned to the global economic landscape. Growth was looking more established and the legacy of the financial crisis was dimming. The US central bank and the Bank of England looked poised to affirm the recovery by finally starting to raise interest rates after keeping them for years at emergency levels. Even the eurozone, having come close to unravelling once again, by this month appeared to have put the latest Greek crisis behind it. All that changed on China’s “Black Monday” last week, when the stock market sell-off that had been rumbling along for weeks turned into a rout. A near 9% fall in the main Shanghai Composite index, its biggest one-day drop since 2007, reverberated around global markets, sending other bourses from Sydney to Wall Street tumbling. In London, dramatic moves on the FTSE 100 were reminiscent ...

Myanmar parliament suspended ahead of polls featuring Aung San Suu Kyi's party 28.8.2015 DNA: Money
Myanmar lawmakers on Friday held their last meetings at parliament as the body was suspended ahead of crucial general elections set to redraw the former junta-ruled nation's political landscape. The combined houses of parliament will reconvene only after the November 8 vote, the first nationwide poll in a quarter of a century to be contested by opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's hugely popular National League for Democracy (NLD). "There will be no legislative meetings before the election in November," Soe Yin of the ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) told AFP, adding that parliament would only reconvene in an emergency. Under Myanmar's electoral system the current parliament will still be active until the end of January 2016, when it will hand over to a new legislature that then selects a president. Suu Kyi is barred from the top political job by the constitution, drafted by the country's former junta rulers, who kept her locked up for some 15 years as they tried to quash the ...
