Polish PM plans to replace Finance Minister Rostowski within months: sources








Home Finance of America - Lowest 15 Year Mortgage Rates






The finance ministry did not respond to phone calls nor emails seeking comment. Earlier in August, the government's spokesman, Pawel Gras, said there were no indication that Rostowski's fate in the government would be in danger. But the other two sources, who are not members of the government but are in regular contact with senior policymakers, both said independently Tusk was planning to let Rostowski go within several months. Rostowski has been Poland's finance minister for six years, making him the country's longest-standing finance chief since the end of Communism in 1989. He has helped Poland become the European Union's sole member to avoid recession following the financial crisis.

Finance countless times a day, whether it's to read an article, check a quote, or something else, I am solely in favor of making a few tiny little tweaks to the Web site itself. It could use more white space, perhaps more interactive charts and be a little bit more visually appealing, like Finviz is. What I don't want is a major overhaul on desktop. I know that Mayer's focus at Yahoo! has been mobile, which she eventually plans to monetize, though there's not much there yet.

Japan finance minister doubts effectiveness of a corporate tax cut






Morzaria, the executive hired last month from JPMorgan Chase & Co., will join the board on Oct. 15, Barclays said. Lucas, who had initially planned to retire in February, cited his health as a key factor behind his decision. I want to do the right thing by Barclays, my family, and myself, and therefore I have reached the difficult decision to step down sooner, Lucas said in the statement. I feel confident that I leave Barclays financially robust and well placed to continue to serve its customers, clients, shareholders and other stakeholders. Lucas was among four past and present employees to be probed by regulators over whether Barclays adequately disclosed fees paid to the Qatar Investment Authority as part of a 7 billion-pound fundraising during the financial crisis, a move that helped the lender avoid taking government money.

They said the move was aimed at rebuilding public confidence in the ruling Civic Platform party and prepare it for a series of elections - regional polls in 2014 and parliamentary elections in 2015. "The plan is to replace him (Rostowski) with someone as part of a bigger cabinet reshuffle that will also see ministers like (Joanna) Mucha and (Marcin) Korolec go," said a senior source in the government. Mucha is Poland's sports minister, while Korolec leads the environment ministry. "This will probably happen in a few months' time, so in the meantime (Rostowski) can finish the ongoing budget revision for 2013 and deal with the next year's budget bill," the source in the government also said.

Barclays Finance Chief Resigns Earlier on Health Reasons

Credit: Reuters/Yuya Shino By Tetsushi Kajimoto and Leika Kihara TOKYO | Thu Aug 15, 2013 12:00am EDT TOKYO (Reuters) - Cutting Japan's corporate tax rate would not have a immediate impact, the finance minister said as he suggested tax breaks for capital expenditure as one way to spark business investment which has so far lagged in an emerging economic recovery Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is nearing a decision on whether to go ahead with a planned doubling of the sales tax rate, which is intended to help contain public debt that has already exceeded 1,000 trillion yen ($10 trillion). There are concerns the two-stage hike from next April could stifle the economy just as it is picking up, and there have been calls for offsetting measures such as a cut in corporate taxes. "Given that only some 30 percent of firms pay corporate taxes, I don't think lowering corporate tax rates would have an immediate impact," Finance Minister Taro Aso told a news conference after a cabinet meeting on Thursday. There were reports this week that Abe was considering a corporate tax cut as a trade-off to ensure support for the sales tax increase. Aso, who is also deputy prime minister, said tax breaks to encourage capital spending could be considered and the government might look at other steps if the sales tax is raised.

Unhelpful Timing Its unhelpful timing for Barclays, said Ian Gordon , an analyst at Investec Plc (INVP) in London , who has a buy recommendation on the shares. However, there should be no impact on the rights issue next month, he said. Barclays gained 0.6 percent to 285.45 pence in London today. The shares have increased 8.7 percent this year. Morzaria, the executive hired last month from JPMorgan Chase & Co., will join the board on Oct.

Sensex bloodbath due to rupee worry, says Finance Ministry: report

However, the ministry does not have a view on the level of the rupee, the sources maintained. The Reserve Bank of India or RBI's steps to support the rupee should not be seen as capital control, the Finance Ministry sources said. Earlier this week, the RBI imposed restrictions on foreign exchange outflows in its latest attempt to prop up the rupee, as a spike in inflation heaped more pressure on policymakers to curb a crippling external deficit. The central bank has also banned imports of gold coins and bars, which constituted about 36 per cent of total bullion demand in India last year, and will require domestic buyers to pay cash for the yellow metal. The government has also raised import taxes on gold and silver in an attempt to narrow the burgeoning current account deficit which is one of the main reasons for the rupee's slide.
