  • Hillary Clinton's appearance with Jimmy Kimmel highlights a difference between her and Obama

    Hillary Clinton was working so hard to look like she was enjoying herself – grinning widely and giving the audience a thumbs-up as she entered, doubling over in laughter at the host’s jokes, merrily going about a bit of prop comedy – that it was hard to believe she was enjoying herself that much at all. The Democratic presidential nominee’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night was about par for the course for campaigning politicians turning up on late-night talk shows – a low-risk, low-reward bit of free publicity in return for proving herself a good sport, while she was in California to fundraise. But the president she is seeking to replace has set a higher bar than that – one that

  • Brazil Jet Maker Embraer Initiates Layoff Plan; Unions Call On Workers' Party To Save Them

    This is one economic problem that can’t be blamed solely on Brazil’s political crisis. Jet maker Embraer announced a few weeks ago that it was considering a volunteer lay off plan. On Tuesday, they made it official. Layoffs are coming to the world’s third largest airplane manufacturer. Like Petrobras' plan to dismiss upwards of 12,000, Embraer’s plan is also voluntary. At least for now. Their goal is to cut some $200 million a year in expenses. The company did not say how many staffers it intends to cut loose. The company’s share price is getting killed; down 40% year-to-date as of Tuesday’s close. Union workers will meet with Embraer executives and political officials on Friday in São Jose dos
