McKinsey consultant Krstic to be Serbian finance minister

There are concerns the two-stage hike from next April could stifle the economy just as it is picking up, and there have been calls for offsetting measures such as a cut in corporate taxes. "Given that only some 30 percent of firms pay corporate taxes, I don't think lowering corporate tax rates would have an immediate impact," Finance Minister Taro Aso told a news conference after a cabinet meeting on Thursday. There were reports this week that Abe was considering a corporate tax cut as a trade-off to ensure support for the sales tax increase. Aso, who is also deputy prime minister, said tax breaks to encourage capital spending could be considered and the government might look at other steps if the sales tax is raised. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Abe would consult experts and the business sector before making any decision on corporate tax cuts.

These statements are based on NorthStar's current expectations and beliefs and are subject to a number of trends and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements; NorthStar can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained. Forward-looking statements are necessarily speculative in nature, and it can be expected that some or all of the assumptions underlying any forward-looking statements will not materialize or will vary significantly from actual results. Variations of assumptions and results may be material. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from NorthStar's expectations include, but are not limited to, the CMBS transaction closing on the terms anticipated, if at all, the timing of any such closing, the timing of the underlying loans being repaid, the duration of the CMBS transaction, the ability to earn the approximate 13% expected yield on the Retained Interests and the factors described in Item 1A of NorthStar's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 under the heading "Risk Factors." The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive.

TABLOIDS OUT; NO BOOK PUBLISHING WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL. NO ARCHIVE. NO RESALE. Finance would go a long way towards building out Yahoo!'s mobile presence and making Yahoo!'s properties "daily habits," as Mayer has put it. Nobody likes change, especially when it comes to their favorite things. I know mobile Yahoo! Finance badly needs a redesign, and I'm all in favor of that.

Japan finance minister doubts effectiveness of a corporate tax cut

CDT, August 14, 2013 BELGRADE (Reuters) - A U.S.-educated McKinsey consultant is to be named Serbia's new finance minister as part of a cabinet reshuffle agreed in July, an official and local media said on Wednesday. Serbian Yale graduate Lazar Krstic, who is about 30, agreed to take the post after meetings with Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade, said a government official familiar with the talks who asked not to be named. "Krstic has agreed to take the post, he also presented his plans to Vucic," the source said without elaborating further. Serbia's state-run RTS TV also quoted Vucic's advisor Sinisa Mali as saying: "Krstic will be new finance minister as of August 26." Parliament is expected to confirm the appointment of Krstic and at least three new ministers at a session on August 26, when Prime Minister Ivica Dacic is scheduled to present his new cabinet line-up.
