ANALYSIS: Egypt's Brotherhood raises stakes by excluding IMF
The Daily News- Egypt - almost 5 years
* The Brotherhood may be first to yield in the game of brinkmanship, to avoid inheriting an economy in tatters. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil) # @ CAIRO: In all but ruling out an early agreement on an IMF loan, Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has dramatically raised the stakes in its struggle with the army-led administration for control of a country still reeling from a year of political turmoil. The Brotherhood's candidate for president, Khairat Al-Shater, said this week the group would not accept an International Monetary Fund loan unless its terms were changed or a new government was formed to monitor how it is spent, demands that almost certainly won't be met. Even without a loan before the presidential election in May and June, whoever comes to power will be forced, sooner or later, to impose hugely unpopular taxes and cuts in government spending to reduce budget and balance of payments deficits inflated by a year of political and economic turmoil. But any del ...

SLOW AND STEADY: UAE March business activity improves slightly
Kipper Report - almost 5 years
The HSBC UAE Purchasing Managers’ Index, which measures the performance of the manufacturing and services sectors, increased to 52.3 points last month from 52.0 in February. The adjusted index remains above the 50-point mark which separates growth from contraction, the survey of 400 private sector firms showed. “The data is still painting a picture of an economy that is stable, not one that is gaining momentum,” said Simon Williams, chief economist for the Middle East and North Africa at HSBC. UAE firms saw output growth increase to 53.4 points from a five-month low of 52.5 in February, but new orders fell to a three-month low of 56.5 points in March, the survey showed. Job creation across the UAE non-oil private sector gained pace in March with the latest increase the most pronounced since October 2011. However, the rise in headcounts was only marginal and below the series average. “Employment still looks sluggish, wages flat and export demand soft. Another month of fl ...
