Business - Ex-Im internal watchdog finds no proof of systemic corruption


There is currently no evidence of widespread fraud within the U.S. Export-Import Bank, its internal watchdog said, as critics of the bank flagged a wider probe of corruption claims. Three Ex-Im employees have been dismissed and another suspended amid investigations into allegations of gifts and kickbacks, cases which could lead to criminal charges and have given ammunition to conservative lawmakers seeking the bank`s closure. `At this time, we have not developed evidence of widespread employee misconduct or systemic employee involvement in fraud schemes at the bank,` Acting Inspector General Michael McCarthy wrote in a July 28 letter to Democrat Matthew Cartwright, which was presented during a Congressional panel hearing. `These investigations are ongoing.` Ex-Im Chairman Fred Hochberg told the hearing he had not heard of any other cases of employee corruption during his time at the bank, which he joined in 2009.

World - Gaza conflict to dent, not break Israel economy


By Steven Scheer JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel`s war against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip is expected to cost it billions of dollars, temporarily hurt economic growth and put pressure on the government`s finances. Analysts and officials compare the current operation to a one-month war between Israel and Hizbollah guerrillas in Lebanon in the summer of 2006, as well as to conflicts in Gaza in 2009 and 2012, when the economy took a hit but bounced back quickly, except for tourism. The central bank reckons the fighting, provided it remains contained to Gaza, may knock at most half a percentage point of this year`s economic growth. `There will be a cost but nothing disastrous,` said economic and financial consultant Barry Topf, an adviser to former Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer.

Business - Lloyds Bank fined $370 million for rigging Libor interest rates


By Matt Scuffham and Huw Jones LONDON/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Britain`s Lloyds Banking Group has agreed to pay fines totaling $370 million to U.S. and British authorities investigating its part in a global interest rate rigging scandal and manipulating fees for a UK government lending scheme. The penalties for Lloyds comprise a 105 million pound ($178 million) fine by Britain`s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), $105 million by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and a $86 million fine by the U.S. Department of Justice. The FCA said there had been routine manipulation of sterling Libor submissions to benefit money market trading positions between September 2006 and June 2009. To avoid negative media comment and market perceptions of its financial strength, Bank of Scotland, which Lloyds later acquired, manipulated Libor submissions as a result of at least two management directives in September and October 2008, the FCA said.

Business - U.S. services sector activity accelerates in July: Markit


Financial data firm Markit said its preliminary services Purchasing Managers Index was 61.0 in July, unchanged from June and above expectations for a reading of 59.8. A reading above 50 signals expansion in economic activity, and June`s reading was the highest final reading since the survey began in October 2009. The services sector continued to add employees, though at a slower pace. `Nonetheless, service sector companies continue to perform strongly against post-recession trends, and overall the latest manufacturing and services PMI surveys suggest that the US economy has enjoyed a strong start to the second half of 2014.` Markit`s final composite PMI, a weighted average of its manufacturing and services indexes, dipped to 60.9 from June`s reading of 61, a level that also represented a record high for a final reading.

Business - NHTSA probes air bag software on older Chevrolet Impalas


By Paul Lienert DETROIT (Reuters) - U.S. safety regulators are investigating the potential for air bags to fail because of software issues in older Chevrolet Impala sedans made by General Motors Co , after receiving a consumer complaint about an alleged incident in Texas. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday that it has opened a probe into about 320,000 Impalas from model year 2008, but would also look at 2007 and 2009 models. GM has recalled nearly 15 million vehicles this year, including the Impala, for ignition switch issues that could cause air bags to fail in a crash. One of the recalls, in June, included Impalas from model years 2006-2014.
