Premier car cos bet high on finance offers to push sales

CHARLES RABIN / MIAMI HERALD STAFF When Daniel Alfonso was named Miamis budget director in August 2011, he was greeted with a bare-bones city budget composed of a few pages of numbers a far cry from the 300-page spending breakdowns most cities offer residents.

"The rating reflects a pledge of all state aid to be appropriated by the state of Michigan to the Detroit Public Schools starting with fiscal 2014," the rating company said. The Detroit Public Schools enrollment could fall by as much as 33 percent, and state aid will be sufficient to cover debt service, according to S&P.

Finance options are available at Mercedes too through its own finance arm, Daimler Finance.

Serbian PM moves to oust finance minister, risking election

Dacic said the offer fell short. "Economy and finance are the most important issues for the future of Serbia and we need an additional impetus here," he said. "We have no time for mistakes." In response, Dinkic accused Dacic of "pure politicking" to cement his own position as premier. The nationalist SNS is riding high in opinion polls and stands to gain the most from a new election, which would likely cement its dominance of the Serbian political scene.
