    Trump's ascent spooks Japan

    Financial Times/CNBC
    As polls open for US primaries in Ohio and Florida, the political elite in Tokyo is starting to confront a disconcerting idea: that their indispensable US ally could actually elect Donald Trump as president. According to a number of officials, Tokyo is still fairly relaxed about Trump's views on security, regarding the US-Japan alliance as strong enough to cope, but they are becoming increasingly alarmed by bipartisan attacks on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal crucial to prime minister Shinzo Abe.

    Single ray of economic sunshine for Spain
    Spanish unemployment fell in the third quarter to its lowest level in four years, providing a ray of hope for Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his People's Party ahead of a December general election in which no party is likely to win power outright.

    Tsipras' win is Europe's opportunity

    Opportunity often arises from the most unpromising of circumstances, and Alexis Tsipras' emphatic defeat of his political rivals Sunday could be one of those moments, writes Mohamed El-Erian. History is replete with examples of "seemingly unlikely politicians who were catalysts for changes," says El-Erian pointing to president Luiz Inacio da Silva of Brazil and Menachem Begin of Israel as standouts and the immigrant crisis could be just the spark for a new approach to Greece, he says. If Europe can actually strengthen Tsipras' hand by delivering further and consequential debt relief to mitigate the "extraordinary migration pressures," there is also an opportunity to forgive the earlier bailout loans and set Greece up as a front-line port of entry point for the refugees. A policy of enlightened reengagement with the IMF and the ECB is in everyone's interests and could be the key to unlocking austerity's grip.
