Fed's 'solid' growth view faces test as Greek drama unfolds

Detail from the front of the United States Federal Reserve Board building is shown in Washington By Philip Blenkinsop BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve's upgraded view that growth in the world's biggest economy is "solid", and so capable of withstanding an interest rate rise this year, will be put to the test by U.S. jobs data this week. The Federal Reserve last week lifted its assessment of the U.S. expansion to "solid" from "moderate", with jobs growth now seen as "strong". "Interest rates then were 6 percent. In an encouraging sign, the more widely respected Employment Cost Index, released on Friday, showed labour costs increased by 2.2 percent in the 12 months through December, although still below the 3 percent economists say is needed to bring inflation close to the Fed's 2 percent target.

Incredible video shows how Space X plans to land largest rocket in the world

Incredible video shows how Space X plans to land largest rocket in the world Elon Musk's Space X released a new video this week demonstrating just what it plans to do with its upcoming Falcon Heavy rocket, which is set to launch for the first time later this year. When it flies later this year, the Falcon Heavy will be the world's most powerful rocket. Only the Saturn V rocket, which was retired in 1973 after sending Apollo missions to the moon, was more powerful. Landing the first stage rockets of the Falcon Heavy will require not just one landing, but three — one for each rocket booster.

China factory sector jolts by shrinking in January

An employee works at the production line of an automobile factory in Dalian By Koh Gui Qing BEIJING (Reuters) - China's factory sector unexpectedly shrank for the first time in nearly 2-1/2 years in January and firms see more gloom ahead, an official survey showed, raising expectations that policymakers will take more action to forestall a sharper slowdown. The official Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to 49.8 in January, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Sunday, a low last seen in September 2012 and a whisker below the 50-point level that separates growth from contraction on a monthly basis. Most of the PMI indexes "showed a downward trend, indicating that current economic growth is still in a downtrend," said Zhang Liqun, an economist at the Development Research Center, a state think-tank. Some economists said the January reading was especially downbeat as it suggested that factories did not enjoy a usual spike in business before China's annual Spring Festival holiday, which falls in mid-February this year.

U.S. regulators recall 2.1 million vehicles in new air bag issue

Jeep's Liberty Patriotic Edition is seen in a file photo taken at the North America Auto Show in Detroit The auto industry's air bag troubles deepened on Saturday as U.S. federal safety regulators said three big automakers will recall about 2.1 million older vehicles to fix defects that could cause air bags to deploy when they are not supposed to. The vehicles involved in the recall announced by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are made by Toyota Motor Corp, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and Honda Motor Co. There have been about 400 reported cases of inadvertent air bag deployments in the recalled vehicles, NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind said. The recall concerned a defective chip in air bag systems and the fix involved replacing the entire air bag module, including circuits manufactured by parts maker TRW Automotive Holdings, Rosekind said.


The Verge Playlist: Future Jock Jams

The Verge Playlist: Future Jock Jams At some point on Sunday, if you’re watching the Super Bowl, you’ll hear a familiar sound. Not the sound of a referee making a bad call, or the sound of an abandoned hot dog falling to the floor,or the sound ofhalf-drunk fans growling at other half-drunk fans. No, I'm talking about the sound of jock jams; the only sound capable of satisfying an entire stadium of aggressively competitive people with a lot of money. There's "Tootsie Roll," "Pump Up The Jam," "It Takes Two." Even if you haven't listened to those songs in years, I bet you can hear them in your head right now if you try.

Gorillaz announces its return with new artwork on Instagram

Gorillaz announces its return with new artwork on Instagram Everyone's favorite cartoon band is getting back together. Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett excited fans on Thursday when he posted new artwork of band members Murdoc and Noodle on Instagram. There has yet to be an official announcement, but it's expected that the band — together with Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn — will release a new album sometime this year. In the past couple of years, Albarn has hinted in interviews that the two could reunite Gorillaz, and with the new artwork from Hewlett, it's safe to say that the two have settled their differences.


Germany, ECB play hardball with Greece

Dijsselbloem, head of the euro zone finance ministers' group, and Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis shake hands after their common press conference at the ministry in Athens By Paul Carrel and Jussi Rosendahl BERLIN/HELSINKI (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel ruled out a debt writedown for Greece on Saturday, and a European Central Bank policymaker threatened to cut off funding to Greek banks if Athens does not agree to renew its bailout package. The euro zone's paymaster and the ECB are both taking a tough line with Greece's new leftist government, whose leader swept to victory last Sunday promising that five years of austerity, "humiliation and suffering" were over. Alexis Tsipras has also promised to renegotiate agreements with the European Commission, ECB and International Monetary Fund "troika" and write off much of Greece's 320 billion euro ($360 billion) debt, which at more than 175 percent of gross domestic product is the world's second-highest after Japan.

McDonald's to slow Russia expansion due to fall in rouble

A customer holds balloons outside a McDonald's restaurant on the day of its reopening in central Moscow By Maria Kiselyova MOSCOW (Reuters) - McDonald's Corp. will open fewer new restaurants in Russia this year than last because a fall in the rouble has increased expansion costs and is hurting consumers, its Russian chief executive Khamzat Khasbulatov told Reuters. The rouble, hit by a drop in oil prices and Western sanctions over Ukraine, has fallen more than 50 percent since early 2014, fuelling inflation. Russia now faces its first recession since 2009. McDonald's will open at least 50 new restaurants in Russia compared to 73 last year, having earmarked 6 billion rubles ($87 million) for capital expenditures, the same amount as in 2014, Khasbulatov said in an interview.

Exclusive: Treasury official among those eyed for regional U.S. Fed openings

Detail from the front of the United States Federal Reserve Board building is shown in Washington A U.S. Treasury official and a director at the New York Federal Reserve are among those who have been considered to replace two hawkish Fed policymakers, according to people familiar with the searches. Final decisions are not imminent in the efforts to find successors to Philadelphia Fed President Charles Plosser, who steps down March 1, and Richard Fisher of the Dallas Fed, who retires on March 19. Matthew Rutherford, whose stint as Treasury's top domestic finance official ended on Friday, was under consideration at least in early stages of the searches, according to three sources. James McAndrews, who heads up research at the neighboring New York Fed, was considered for the job in Philadelphia, where he once worked.
