The United States has risen two notches in the economic competitiveness stakes, the World Economic Forum said Wednesday. "The United States improves its competitiveness position for the second consecutive year, climbing two places to third on the back of gains to its institutional framework and innovation scores," said the WEF, which issues an annual ranking. The United States had held the top rank seven years ago but slid to seventh amid the financial crisis. The WEF, which organises the annual Davos meeting of the global political and business elite, said that Switzerland, where it is based, remained the world's most competitive economy.
Brazil's central bank will keep its key interest rate on hold at 11 percent a month before its presidential vote despite a recession and inflationary pressures, analysts indicated Tuesday. Though Latin America's largest economy slid into recession last week, analysts believe the need to rein in inflation which in July crept above an official 6.5 percent ceiling outweighs stimulating consumer spending and easing access to credit via a cut. Brazil is in a fourth year of anemic growth and the 2014 forecast is for just a 0.52 percent rise in GDP. There is a small chance of a cut but the possibility is very small given inflation remains high," said Pedro Tuesta, chief economist of US consultancy 4Cast.
Aston Martin dealers say they are in danger of closing if federal regulators refuse to give them an exemption to safety rules that would allow them to keep selling all four models the British luxury sports car maker produces. Aston Martin dealers cannot sell DB 9 and Vantage models produced after Aug. 31. The 101-year-old maker of sports cars, including James Bond’s original car of choice, asked the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in March for an exemption of up to three years to federal side-impact safety standards. Aston Martin says lack of an exemption would cause "substantial economic hardship" to the money-losing brand.
