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.





Finance Minister directs commercial banks to increase interest for depositors





"There was a complete unanimity on how wilful defaulters are going to be treated. At today's meeting, I have also communicated that message which I think is very important that absolutely no consideration will be shown to wilful defaulters," Financial Services Secretary Rajiv Takru told reporters after a meeting with top bankers here this evening. He said banks have been advised to cut down their net non-performing assets (NPAs) and so wilful defaulters must be dealt as firmly, correctly and expeditiously as possible. Takru had earlier this month gave a stern warning to wilful defaulters and told them that they should be prepared to cede management control of their companies as they are putting public's money at stake. As of June quarter, total restructured assets of banks crossed Rs 4 lakh crore, and the major contributor are the state-run banks.
















To this effect the bank donated K10, 000 for the purchase of dip tank chemicals in an effort to reduce and boost the livestock sector in the province.

Supreme Court's Campaign Finance Case Gets New Firepower








Report: GE to spin off consumer finance business





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. Donors can give a maximum of $123,200 every two years to federal candidates, political parties and political action committees. McConnell will be represented at the court by Bobby Burchfield, a trial partner at McDermott Will & Emery.











"The unexpected death of Pierre Wauthier has deeply shocked me," Ackermann was quoted as saying in the company statement. "I have reasons to believe that the family is of the opinion that I should take my share of responsibility, as unfounded as any allegations might be." "As a consequence, I see the possibility of a continued successful board leadership to the benefit of Zurich called into question," he continued. "To avoid any damage to Zurich's reputation, I have decided to resign from all my board functions with immediate effect." The death of Wauthier comes just five weeks after Switzerland's leading telecommunications company Swisscom said its 49-year-old chief executive Carsten Schloter took his own life. Wauthier, who was 53 and a citizen of both the U.K and France, joined Zurich 17 years ago and was appointed CFO in 2011.

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








Fifth Street Finance (FSC) Passes Through 11% Yield Mark





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.





India finance minister asks banks to ensure credit flow to industry





Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock markets total return. Fast forward to 5/31/2012 and each share was worth $77.79 on that date, a loss of $0.48 or 0.6% decrease over twelve years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $10.77 per share in dividends over the same period, increasing your return to 13.15%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.0%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 11% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable.
















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.
