    After Clinton's slender victory in Iowa, candidates must recalibrate

    Bloomberg
    Hours after the last voters walked out of Iowa’s caucuses, the focus of the reshaped 2016 US presidential race shifted to New Hampshire, where Hillary Clinton tried to put the best face on her slender victory over Bernie Sanders and the gaggle of Republican also-rans trained their sights on the three leaders of their race. After a shattering loss in Iowa eight years ago, Clinton arrived in New Hampshire on Tuesday declaring herself satisfied with Monday’s result, even if her advantage was only a fraction of a percentage point.

    Fair dinkum – what is it with Aussie politics?

    CNBC
    A party coup that toppled Tony Abbott from the Australian prime ministership has shed light on the machinations inside a political system that allows a country to have five leaders in as many years. Nyshka Chandran writes in a dramatic series of events, former communications minister Malcolm Turnbull defeated Tony Abbott by 10 votes in an internal Liberal Party ballot late on Monday. In Australia, the political party with the most seats in the House of Representatives forms the government, which means the ruling party can change leaders at its discretion.

    UK hopefuls must stop this 'good life' charade

    The Telegraph
    We've been down the electoral path before where politicians make all kinds of pledges hoping that this will persuade the voters to stick a big, fat X by their name, but some of the claims being made in the run up to the UK vote on May 7 are ridiculous, says Jeremy Warner. £8 billion for the NHS? Tick. 25 days free child care? Tick. Taxpayer-funded discounts to buy your home? Tick. Everything is there in the land of "milk and honey." Warner warns that this kind of cloud cuckoo land pledge-making can only cause havoc when realities come home and that the UK is setting itself up for the next financial crisis if it goes down this path.

    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.

    Ruthless Xi plays for time on protests: Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

    TradingFloor.com Team / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    Xi Jinping is China's most ruthless leader since Mao Zedong, yet, while he'll view the protests in Hong Kong with distaste, he faces an unpleasant Catch-22. Ambrose Evans-Pritchard fears that if the protests burgeon, China may enter isolationist mode and miss its chance to make the right kind of economic choices to allow it to flourish.
