    Japanese government is planning to raise the minimum wage paid to other workers to strengthen its economy, and to meet its target nominal GDP to 600 trillion yen in 5 years, a draft of economic stimulus measures showed on Monday. A Reuters-obtained draft showed that the government is also offering some financial support to people living off their pensions to boost consumer spending. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government will also provide a time frame for lowering the corporate tax rate below 30% to improve competitiveness, the draft showed.

    US politicians condemn Pfizer-Allergan deal



    US politicians slammed Pfizer Inc.'s decision to acquire Allergan Plc for $160 billion, considering the move as tax evasion. Democrats heavily criticized Pfizer, with Hillary Clinton accusing the drugmaker of utilizing legal loopholes to dodge its fair share of taxes and leaving the burden on American taxpayers. Senator Bernie Sanders said the agreement would enable major US companies to conceal its profits abroad. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who pressed for overhauling corporate tax, described the deal as disgusting. Under the deal, the merged company will be called Pfizer and will be operated by Pfizer Chief Executive Ian Read. Also, the executive management will remain in New York, as well as its extensive operations throughout the country.

    US economy expands in third quarter



    The US economy expanded at a better pace in the third quarter than previously projected, as businesses slashed an inventory bloat less aggressively than initially expected. Based on a Commerce Department data , the gross domestic product gained at a 2.1% annual pace, not the 1.5% rate it reported in October. The economy continues to improve relative to its potential. Referring to this development, the Federal Reserve has the reason to hike interest rates in December, said Chris Rupkey, Chief Financial Economist at MUFG Union Bank. Meanwhile, consumer confidence plunged further in November, touching its 14-month low, as sentiment on the labor market suddenly soured.

    Brazil Holds Key Rate For Third Meeting



    Brazil's central bank left its key interest rate unchanged at a nine-year high for the third straight meeting late Wednesday. The monetary policy committee decided to hold its key Selic rate at 14.25 percent. Two members voted to hike the rate by 50 basis points, while other six members voted to keep it on hold. Inflation rose to a 12-year high of 9.93 percent in October. At the same time, the economy entered a technical recession in the second quarter. The increase in inflation has broken the consensus on the committee and sparked a debate on whether further tightening is needed, Neil Shearing, an economist at Capital Economics, said. Rate cuts to help out the struggling economy are clearly way off the agenda, he said.

    EU flags potential economic troubles on imbalances



    The European Commission warned of potential economic troubles in 12 of the 19 eurozone countries, including Germany, and findings will be released in February. Through its monitoring policy, the commission said it will closely look at imbalances in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Slovenia. The policy was unveiled at the peak of the euro debt crisis. High trade surplus was attributed to Germany, leaving it susceptible to an economic slowdown elsewhere. The commission added the six nations, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, that do not use the euro will face renewed monitoring as well.
