The Russophobes want the conflict in Ukraine to continue to justify the sanctions on Russia. They want the Russian economy seriously weakened, regardless of the cost to the Russian people - believing this will eventually lead to ‘regime change' in Moscow and someone like Garry Kasparov or Mikhail Khodorkovsky taking over in the Kremlin.

They've never forgiven Putin and Lavrov for blocking war against Syria in 2013 and for having the temerity to stand up and defend legitimate Russian national interests. Don't these damn ‘Ruskies' know their place!

Its finance minister has warned that Greece will struggle to repay creditors starting with a 1.5 billion euro IMF loan repayment due in March.

...

Greece had also hoped it could tap the almost 11 billion euros of leftover money in the Greek bank stabilization fund, but euro zone finance ministers have decided the money would be returned to the Luxembourg-based euro zone bailout fund.

...

A senior Greek banker said the expectation in Athens remained that the ECB would relent and allow some leeway on T-bills.

...

The onus is now on Athens to rush through reforms to unlock the remaining aid.

iehi-feed-56183 Fri, 27 Feb 2015 19:48:55 GMT Can a Stock-Trader-Turned-Convict Start a New Life? (THE STORY OF ROOMY KHAN) http://implode-explode.com/viewnews/2015-02-27_CanaStockTraderTurnedConvictStartaNewLifeTHESTORYOFROOMYKHAN.html Since January 2008, as Roomy had ostensibly been going about her usual business -- analyzing companies, gathering snippets of privileged corporate intelligence and deciding which stocks to buy and sell -- she was secretly assisting the F.B.I. in a long-running investigation into insider trading at Wall Street hedge funds. Khan was the right woman for the job: Since about 2006, she herself had been trading on inside information. When the F.B.I. caught up with her, she began helping them -- at first reluctantly and then with theatrical flair. She taped telephone calls with her bosses, business associates and even a neighbor. Most important of all, she taped calls with her ex-boss, Raj Rajaratnam, whom the government had been eyeing for a decade.

...

I met Khan in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in September, five months after she was released from prison and three months after she was transferred from a halfway house to her own home. I wanted to understand how a highly intelligent woman like Khan -- she has a degree in engineering, two in physics and an M.B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley -- wound up committing a crime like this. What sorts of calculations had she made to convince herself that the benefits of cheating outweighed the possible costs?

...

In February, she received a rejection [from Wharton business school], but she's waiting to hear from several other schools. If she doesn't get in anywhere, she would like to write a book, perhaps go on the lecture circuit, sharing with aspiring traders and business people the cautionary tale of her easy slide into committing crimes

...

"This is a supply-side correction in property," Yao writes in a new report. "While housing sales will likely improve this year, construction and all the industrial activity that depends on it will not. Therefore an upturn in housing sales will not deliver as much of a boost to growth."
