The Paris Club agreement over a “bridging” period until next year means Argentina will avoid a damaging default next month. It came with a commitment to strike a deal with the IMF by March 31 to revamp repayments it cannot make. The Paris Club, which has a long history with Argentina, includes among its members the United States, Germany, Brazil and Japan, which are also members of the IMF. The IMF on Thursday said it welcomed Argentina’s deal with the Paris Club, though it had no timeline currently for a new agreement. Some analysts said that even with an IMF deal, Argentina’s problems would persist, with rising poverty levels, runaway inflation and tight capital controls still in place.

But it ups the ante on public debt even further. If additional debt-financed spending can lift economic potential without stoking inflation, decades of trepidation over unchecked public debt loads moving from crisis to crisis may well have been wide of the mark and a different regime of high but manageable public debt at hand. Persistently high inflation surprises and full passage of U.S. spending bills could challenge that market stability, they add, but that’s “a limited risk” at this stage. Parsing differing arguments on measuring sovereign debt sustainability, the effects of high debt on growth, possible tipping points and debt dynamics of ageing societies, the piece concluded with pretty stark warnings about the trajectory. “This ‘low interest rate/high public debt’ equilibrium is fragile, as it crucially hinges on a continuation of low inflation,” wrote Deutsche economist Sebastian Becker.

NeXtWind buys three German onshore wind parks, looks for more
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( Vera Eckert | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Investment firm NeXtWind said on Friday it had bought three onshore wind parks in northern Germany with a combined capacity of 70 megawatts (MW), a first step in its plan to invest in maturing German wind power assets. The company aims to extend the life of green power assets, where subsidies are ending, and, where possible, raise their capacity. NeXtWind plans to triple the sites’ current annual output to around 300 gigawatt hours (GWh) a year by between 2024 and 2026. The turbines’ output will be marketed under fixed price deals called power purchase agreements (PPAs), which are becoming popular among utilities’ trading arms and corporate consumers keen on becoming greener. By 2025, up to 16 GW of German green power capacity will lose subsidy status under 20-year fixed price guarantees that are being replaced with an auction-based system.

Big Oil's rise in climate lawsuits draws parallels to Big Tobacco

The prospect of a rising tide of climate litigation cases against heavy emitting businesses comes shortly after a landmark courtroom defeat for Royal Dutch Shell. INA FASSBENDER | AFP | Getty ImagesSince the turn of the century, more than 2,000 climate litigation cases were found to have been filed in a trend that is widely expected to have global implications for carbon-intensive companies. Nonetheless, it is the Dutch court ruling against Shell that is thought to have emboldened climate activists into taking on corporates directly. EcocideThe risks of a surging number of climate litigation cases for businesses include a changing regulatory environment, significant reputational damage and the expanding nature of the cases being brought. Among the new arenas of climate litigation risk, analysts say, are fraud and consumer protection liabilities, planning and permitting laws and environmental performance.

After U.S. President Joe Biden met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on June 16, French President Emmanuel Macron said the first EU summit with Putin since January 2014 would be "a dialogue to defend our interests". But after late night talks at their meeting in Brussels, the 27 EU leaders failed to reach an agreement, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said early on Friday. EU summits with Russia ended after Moscow annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in March 2014 and the West imposed sanctions. France and Germany want to be able to work with Russia on combating climate change and to find ways to stabilise relations. The EU on Thursday imposed economic sanctions on Belarus, an ally of Russia that the Kremlin sees as a buffer state between Russia and NATO.

Universal Paternity Leave Needs More Than New Laws for a Push

The researchers looked at cases where, coincidentally, a man’s “competitors” at work all took paternity leave around the same time. Strikingly, if the competitors were also on leave, the setback to a man’s career from taking leave was negligible. It was when a man took leave but his competitors did not that his earnings suffered. We may not commonly call our co-workers competitors, but in a sense they often are exactly that, and not just in Norway. They remain neck and neck for a promotion, but they would have also been neck and neck — yet happier — if both had taken leave.

Yet Mr. Wisnia had resolved to go back to Auschwitz one last time. Mr. Wisnia spent New Year’s Day in 2020 in a hospital bed, just weeks before his flight was scheduled to leave Newark. Mr. Wisnia knew this would almost certainly be his final opportunity to revisit the Nazi death camp, and it felt especially important to go. In Auschwitz, Mr. Wisnia became a privileged prisoner when his Nazi captors discovered his talent and forced him to sing for them. In spite of the horrors of the death camp, Mr. Wisnia found clandestine moments of love with another privileged prisoner, an older woman known as Zippi.
