    Argentines shrug off risk of default

    In this Friday, July 25, 2014 photo, pedestrians walk past a branch of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, a target for anti-capitalist agitation ever since a 1927 anarchist bombing of what was then a Bank of Boston, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2001, this neo-colonial bank building from Argentina's golden age was ground zero for the country's financial earthquake. Mobs of protesters stared down riot police to demand the return of their savings confiscated by the government in a last-ditch, and ultimately failed, attempt to stay current on its debt. Thirteen years later, a July 30th midnight deadline approaches to avert another default. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko)BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — In 2001, it was ground zero for Argentina's financial earthquake. A neo-colonial architectural gem built long ago by the Bank of Boston, it became the focal point for angry mobs of protesters who stared down riot police to demand the return of their savings, which the government confiscated in a last-ditch, and ultimately failed, attempt to stay current on its debt.




    European regulators training sights on Google's mobile software

    File photo of Google Chairman Eric Schmidt speaking at a Motorola phone launch event in New YorkBy Foo Yun Chee and Alexei Oreskovic BRUSSELS/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - European regulators are preparing what could be a stern challenge to Google Inc's mobile software business in the coming months after a nearly four-year investigation into the company's Web search practices left rivals and European politicians dissatisfied. Two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said that with a new antitrust chief taking over in November, European regulators are laying the groundwork for a case centered on whether Google abuses the 80 percent market share of its Android mobile operating system to promote services from maps to search. The Commission has stepped up inquiries just in recent weeks, sending companies questionnaires that seek far more details than previous queries on the matter in 2011 and 2013. In one questionnaire seen by Reuters, respondents were asked whether there was a requirement set by Google, written or unwritten, that they not pre-install apps, products or services on mobile devices that compete with Google software like its search engine, app store and maps.

    Argentina debt talks down to the wire as default looms

    Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez arrives at a Mercosur summit in CaracasBy Richard Lough, Eliana Raszewski and Daniel Bases BUENOS AIRES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Argentina was in a race against time on Wednesday to cut a deal by the end of the day with holdout investors suing it and avert a default, as a surge in the country's bond prices fed optimism that an agreement was possible. The South American country's economy minister, Axel Kicillof, was expected to speak at the Argentine consulate office in New York after several hours of talks, according to a spokeswoman. The holdout hedge funds want full repayment on bonds they bought on the cheap after the country last defaulted in 2002, a demand Argentina has so far rejected. Their attorneys, along with an Argentine delegation, met at the offices of court-appointed mediator Daniel Pollack in New York, with just hours to go until the deadline for an interest payment.




    TSX hits record-high close on U.S. data, Fed comment

    A man walks past an old Toronto Stock Exchange sign in TorontoBy Leah Schnurr and John Tilak TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index had its highest close on record on Wednesday, boosted by positive U.S. economic data and the Federal Reserve’s commentary on the outlook for monetary policy. The U.S. central bank, which indicated that it was in no hurry to raise interest rates, cut its monthly asset purchases and looked on track to shutter the program this fall. The Fed also noted that it is paying attention to a decline in the jobless rate. "The broader macro theme – a stronger U.S. economy through the first half of the year – is very supportive, together with a very patient Fed that’s still got its eye on slack in the labor market," said Fergal Smith, managing market strategist at Action Economics.
