Exclusive: EU wants Google to stop anti-competitive Android practices, fine expected

Yahoo Business - 33 mins 30 segs ago

EU antitrust regulators plan to order Alphabet's Google to stop paying financial incentives to smartphone makers to pre-install Google Search exclusively on their devices and warned the company of a large fine, an EU document showed. Google received a copy in April in which the European Commission accused it of using its dominant Android mobile operating system to shut out rivals. The EU competition enforcer in its charge sheet, known as a statement of objections, said it planned to tell the U.S. technology giant to halt payments or discounts to mobile phone manufacturers in return for pre-installing Google's Play Store with Google Search.

Germany's Merkel cannot afford to bail out Deutsche Bank: media

Yahoo Business - 4 horas 53 mins ago

By Georgina Prodhan FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel cannot afford to bail out Deutsche Bank given the hard line Berlin has taken against state aid in other European nations and the risk of a political backlash at home, German media wrote on Saturday. The government denied a newspaper report on Wednesday that it was working on a rescue plan for Germany's biggest bank, as its shares went into a tailspin fueled by a demand for up to $14 billion from U.S. authorities for misselling mortgage-backed securities before the financial crisis. Germany, which has insisted Italy and others accept tough conditions in tackling their problem lenders, can ill afford to be seen to go soft on its flagship bank, the Frankfurter Allgemeine wrote.

Yahoo Business - Vie, 30/09/2016 - 22:03

After a significant pick-up in March, China's official PMI slipped, falling below 50 in July before showing expansion in August. Economists say the pattern over the past few months suggested sustained economic growth, but a growing dependence on government spending and an overheated property market may pose increased risks later this year with debt levels continuing to rise.
