The Bank of Canada is expected to raise their key overnight interest rate to 0.50 percent from 0.25 percent on June 1st as Governor Mark Carney recently dropped a “conditional commitment” to leave rates unchanged until July amid inflation and faster-than-expected growth. Indeed, market participants are weighing in a sixty eight percent chance that the central bank will hike rates twenty five basis points tomorrow, according to the Credit Suisse Overnight Interest Rate swaps.

SARB: Statement of the Monetary Policy Committee (25/03/2010)
The domestic economy has shown signs of moderate improvement since the previous meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee. Inflation expectations have moderated. Inflation has returned to within the target range and is expected to remain there for the remainder of the forecast period. The risks to the inflation outlook have declined somewhat as a result of the continued appreciation of the exchange rate of the rand and greater certainty with respect to future electricity tariff increases. Household consumption expenditure is growing at positive, albeit low rates, but growth in private sector fixed capital formation remains negative. market research, surveys and trends

South Korean economy faces mounting problems
There are signs of growing economic trouble in South Korea. The country, which is currently the world’s 13th largest economy, is particularly vulnerable to the global economic turbulence. The financial shocks that began with the subprime mortgage crisis in the US loans last year, combined with global inflationary pressures, caught South Korea unprepared. News of the bailout of the US mortgage giants—Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—hit South Korea hard, with its share market plunging to a low for the year of 1,489.86 points. Economists and investors expressed concerns that South Korea may confront a combination of economic downturn, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Consumer spending weak
"Generally, the expectation is that we should have passed the nadir of the recession; however, the new-found confidence of a rebounding economy is not emerging as a reality in consumer spending terms," Derek Engelbrecht, retail sector leader at Ernst & Young SA, said in a statement. From unsustainably high levels of spending in 2004-2006, consumers were brought to earth with a dramatic turnaround which Engelbrecht believed would have lasting repercussions. "The consumer has burnt fingers and is reluctant to easily slip into spending quite as easily as before. "The possibility is that decision-making patterns have changed." ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

South Africa's 2010 World Cup 'feel good' factor is addictive. At taxi ranks, street bazaars and tea-rooms, South African citizens everywhere are filled with elation - and pride.

From stadiums - completed in advance to fulfill Fifa's (International Federation of Association Football) insistence on a six month 'buffer zone', to airports and other infrastructure, South Africa has fulfilled Fifa's requirements to the tee. The LOC has also paced expenditure ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Hello To begin, not all was gloom and doom during the Great Depression. It was a time when those who knew what they were doing made great economic strides and the very nature of the depression itself was an economic boon for them.

What is the best semi automatic pistol for personal defense?
On caliber (and stopping power) you have to ask yourself, what do you need?  Do you really need a 45?  Most people would quickly answer yes.  After all, why risk it?  What if you do run into a musclehead who's high on pcp or something of the sort?  Given that nerves are going to be high and you are probably going to go for a chest shot and not a head shot... yeah, it's not a bad bet as far as better safe than sorry goes.  Personally, though, I see little problem with 9mm.  With good ammo (hollowpoints that will expand well and reliably), 9mm is generally going to get the job done, and ...
