China dumps dollar in favor of basket of currencies
Topic: Business 9:43 am EDT, Jul 21, 2005

BEIJING (AP) -- China dropped its politically volatile policy of linking its currency to the U.S. dollar but retained controls on its exchange rate, switching the link to a basket of foreign currencies in a move that could push up the price of Chinese exports to the United States and Europe.

[mises] Some Pact!
Topic: Business 8:36 am EST, Jan 19, 2005

EU's fiscal stability pact is coming unravelled. Considering the depths of financial chicanery practised by the Commission and EU member states, the pact is worthless. Burdened by the welfare state, colossal debt and wedded to creative accounting, EU countries are unlikely to aggressively police each other for fear of recompense. Let this be a lesson: states do not discipline themselves.

[mises] Chile: Socialism, Dictatorship, and Liberalism
Topic: Business 3:12 pm EST, Jan 14, 2005

One might even say that Chile has become a nation of shopkeepers—a phrase once derisively used by foreign observers to describe the British. Throughout the 1990's, and today, under the current administration of "socialist" Ricardo Lagos, Chile has furiously been attempting to secure free trade agreements with every country it can from New Zealand to South Korea to the United States. Free trade, low debt, low taxes, and relatively laissez-faire economics are at the heart of the ongoing economic expansion in Chile. Long a practical and trade-minded people, the Chileans are now enjoying the fastest growing economy in Latin America, and are considered an increasingly good investment choice by the world financial community. And, as some have said, it is well on its way to becoming a first-world nation.
