Treasuries declined, with benchmark yields on pace to climb for a second-straight week, as traders looked past weaker-than-forecast U.S. economic growth in favor of data that shows sustained inflation worldwide.

By contrast, the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ employment ...

US economy expanded at weakest pace in 3 years 29.4.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
The slowdown primarily reflected slower consumer spending, which grew at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 0.3 percent after a growth rate of 3.5 percent in the fourth quarter. Growth is expected to be fueled by a revival in consumer spending, supported by continued strong job growth, accelerating wage gains and record stock levels. The sharp slowdown in consumer spending in the first quarter was attributed to a collection of temporary factors: warmer weather, which shrank spending on heating bills, a dropoff in auto sales after a strong fourth quarter and a delay in sending out tax refund checks, which also dampened spending. Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said he expected consumer and government spending to bounce back, leading to a much stronger second quarter. Trump had repeatedly attacked the weak GDP rates during the campaign as an example of the Obama administration’s failed economic policies. In addition to weaker consumer activity, the first-quarter slowdown also ...

India is in an advanced stage of developing a policy to encourage domestic defence manufacturing to reduce armed forces' dependency on import, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said. "India is the world's largest arms importer, spending some 1.8% of its GDP on defence. It imports about 70% of defence equipment, a proposition the government wants to change," Jaitley told a meeting of the Confederation of Indian Industry here on Friday. The policy would make India a manufacturing economy instead of being a mere buyer, Jaitley said. The defence minister was also silent on the status of the much-touted "strategic partnership" his predecessor Manohar Parrikar spoke about to rope in private companies into the defence business. Parrikar had finalised a new defence procurement policy and changed the blacklisting rules. But without the strategic partnership model in place, India is unlikely to see a major 'Make in India' thrust in the defence sector. The strategic partnership model plan envisaged forming a business ...
