Great news coming today for USA and the Obama administration. The US ecomony is showing significant signs of growth since 2003, and one can only hope and predict that the peak will be much higher then the previous high. From dailyfinance.com,
"U.S. economic growth was far stronger than initially thought in the third quarter, pointing to strengthening fundamentals that should support the economy for the rest of the year.
The Commerce Department on Tuesday raised its estimate of gross domestic product to a 3.9 percent annual pace from the 3.5 percent rate reported last month, reflecting upward revisions to business and consumer spending, as well as restocking.
Spending on residential construction also was raised, helping to offset downward revisions to export growth and government spending.
Economists had expected growth would be trimmed to a 3.3 percent pace.
"This report will go some way in providing further confirmation about the sustainability of the current economic recovery," said Millan Mulraine, deputy chief economist at TD Securities in New York.
The economy had expanded at a 4.6 percent rate in the second quarter. It has now experienced the two strongest back-to-back quarters of growth since the second half of 2003.
When measured from the income side, the economy grew at its fastest pace since the first quarter of 2012.
U.S. stock futures edged up and the dollar rose to session highs against the euro after the data. Prices for U.S. Treasuries erased slight gains."

The economy of countries tends to collapse when the country has internal conflict, political corruption, and disease. These components render some of the most productive members of the economy. Without proper aid and jobs, this sets the climate for the current economic status. Also, poor political actions has led to stalemate in some economies, showing no sign of growth. Out of the 54 continental states in Africa, a few are ranked some of the poorest countries in the world, for example; Madagascar, Equatorial Guinea, Angola, Guinea, Swaziland, Comoros, Eritrea, Lesotho, Benin, and Cote D’Ivoire.
It is great to see that the multi million dollar agreement was recently announced in Abu Dhabi. From gulfnews.com, "Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) is set to extend Dh110 million in soft loans to the Republic of Madagascar for the construction of a 117 kilometre two-lane road and seven bridges that will connect key rural areas of the country."

From October 20−November 4, An International Monetary Fund (IMF) staff team led by Mr. Harry Trines, Mission Chief for Comoros. They visited Moroni to conduct discussions for the 2014 Article IV consultation. The mission met with President Dhoinine Ikililou and held discussions with Vice President and Minister of Finance Mohamed Ali Soilihi, Minister of Planning Alféine Soifiat Tadjiddine, Governor of the Central Bank Abdou Mohamed Chanfiou, Councilor to the President and Permanent Secretary of the Economic and Financial Reform Agency Chei Oubeidi, and other government officials, representatives of the private sector, unions, and the donor community.
At the conclusion of the mission, Mr. Trines issued the following statement:
“While Comoros has made notable progress in recent years and macroeconomic policy making and economic performance have improved since the adoption of the new constitution in 2009, much remains to be done to consolidate and accelerate inclusive economic growth through continued focus on policies that emphasize macroeconomic stability and improvements in infrastructure, and that foster structural reforms that improve the competitiveness of the economy and strengthen the business environment. (2)
They document went on to discuss what has led them to existing climate, from inflation, to improper government spending, and went on to say, “Comoros faces many challenges. In the near term, the government must strive to find a better balance between the resources available and expenditures so that it can avoid the incurrence of arrears, particularly on wages and external debt, and make allocations to some important initiatives. Urgent action is also needed to improve the reliability of the energy supply, a key constraint to growth. For the medium term, the key challenges are to create fiscal space for infrastructure investment and social spending through greatly strengthened revenue mobilization, accelerate inclusive growth and employment generation, and reduce poverty, while also strengthening resilience against external shocks, including natural disasters."

The Anglo-Dutch oil firm Shell has won a multimillion-dollar court battle against the Indian authorities, marking a significant victory for multinationals involved in tax wrangles in the country.
The high court in Mumbai ruled in favour of Shell, whose Indian unit had been accused of under-pricing shares issued to its parent firm by about 180bn rupees (£1.9bn).
The company had challenged a demand by Indian authorities for tax on the interest that would have been earned.
The judges quashed the income tax department order.
“This is a positive outcome which should provide a further boost to the government initiatives to improve the investment climate,” Shell said in a statement.
The high tax claim was one in a series ordered by Indian authorities on foreign firms including HSBC, IBM and Nokia.
A court ruled in October in favour of the British mobile phone company Vodafone, which had been engaged in a £317m tax battle with Indian authorities after they accused it of also underpricing its shares.
Foreign companies claim India’s tax laws are sometimes applied in an uneven and capricious manner, making it difficult to do business in the country.
Vikram Dhawan, director of equities at Equentis Capital, described the ruling in the Shell case as “a very positive development”, which showed India “is walking the talk of being friendly and fair to businesses”.
But he added that its government now had to remove the ambiguity about inward capital rules “if more of such suits that hurt investor sentiment are to be avoided”.
Transfer pricing – the value at which companies trade assets between units in different countries – has become a significant legal issue in India and in other countries. Tax authorities often contend that companies set the prices for transferring assets for their own gain.
Legally, prices for cross-border transfer of assets are supposed to be set as if the transactions were carried out with separate companies.
Uncertainty about India’s regulatory climate has dampened foreign investment at a time when the country needs it to upgrade dilapidated infrastructure and spur economic growth.

Dollar General may have to divest more than double the 1,500 stores it said it was willing to sell if it wants to gain regulatory approval to buy arch-rival Family Dollar, The Post has learned.
The Federal Trade Commission may require the country’s No. 1 dollar store chain to divest more than 4,000 stores to win approval of its stalled $9.1 billion merger proposal, two sources close to the situation said Tuesday.
There is concern among the FTC staff that the two chains are mainly in competition with each other — and not with Walmart, drugstores and supermarkets, the sources said.
“The question is whether the [vastly increased] number of divestitures will allow [Dollar General’s] deal to work financially,” according to one source close to the situation.
Getting the FTC to change its mind on what retailers are its biggest rivals could take as long as six months — but rival Dollar Tree, the No. 3 chain in the sector, wants a vote on its proposed Family Dollar merger by Dec. 31, according to insiders.
