    Hillary Clinton diagnosed with pneumonia

    The Guardian
    Hillary Clinton has pneumonia and has been advised to rest, the Democratic presidential nominee’s doctor said on Sunday, after Clinton abruptly left the September 11 memorial ceremony in downtown Manhattan because, her campaign initially said, she felt “overheated”. On Sunday morning Clinton was helped into a car away from the memorial, where she had been attending a ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. She later travelled to her daughter’s apartment, and eventually to her home in Chappaqua, New York, before her campaign gave a more complete explanation of what had happened.

    Trump not fit to be US president

    Former managing editor, TradingFloor.com / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    The latest outburst from Republican nominee Donald Trump exposes the Republican's "highly dangerous" nature. The highly controversial candidate has simply gone too far this time.

    US economy hostage to presidential race

    The Telegraph
    While much of the globe flounders, the US recovery is the shining beacon that promises real hope for the future, writes Matthew Lynn. The shale gas boom, economic growth and tech titans striding across the international stage all form a compelling narrative that should help to power a global recovery with everything in place except for one thing - politics. Lynn says that the race for the White House is likely to prove to be a disaster for the US as the leading campaigners on the left and right - respectively Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump - formulate campaigns that could set the economy back a decade. And, says Lynn, if that's a disaster for the US economy, it's also likely to edge the globe nearer to the abyss.

    FTSE highs could be undone by Labour victory

    The Telegraph
    The FTSE 100 may be flirting with intraday and closing day highs on the back of easing concerns over Europe, recovering economies in the US and UK, a hoped for soft landing in China and central bank QE, but all that could be thrown into turmoil by the UK election in May, says the Telegraph's Jeremy Warner. The City is assuming that things will carry on much as before with some kind of coalition in place to maintain the status quo but there is enough evidence to make the case for a profoundly different kind of political environment if the polls are to be believed. It might come as a surprise that Ed Milliband's Labour Party will ascend to the throne if polls are correct, despite the stream of positive news on the UK economy. For those investors expecting a Blairite, centrist government aligned with business interests, a Milliband coalition is likely to disappoint.

    Why the peripherals might want Syriza to fail

    The Telegraph
    We tend to focus on the stance of the major European-Union powers in the Greek debt crisis, but what about the position of the periphery, especially those who stuck to the bailout conditions and are in the process of coming out the other side? Andrew Lilico says those governments like Portugal and Ireland will have a task to explain why they put their people through such misery and Spain's ruling Partido Popular party will hope that a rap on Syriza's knuckles will take the wind out of the sails of the anti-austerity platform of Podemos, flying high in the polls. Italy too is rather less sanguine on a prospective Syriza win than the likes of Alexis Tsipras and Yanis Varoufakis might want you to believe with Italian finance minister distancing the country very quickly from comparisons made by the Greek finance minister drawing parallels between the two.

    Economic plan will be a balancing act for Clinton if she runs again

    Managing Partner / Spotlight Group
    United Kingdom
    Hillary Clinton is well in front of the potential Democratic field for 2016 and if she runs there are some key issues she needs to tackle that are concerning America. The US has the deepest level of income inequality since 1928 and hourly wage growth as a rolling 12-month average is below a five-year average. Clinton will want to tackle this issue, however, it is but a short step to openly attacking wealth creation.
