Fiat Chrysler's Marchionne Says 'Unconscionable' To Give Up on GM Deal: Paper: Reuters Deals.- August 31, 2015.

Fiat Chrysler's Marchionne says 'unconscionable' to give up on GM deal: paper

MILAN It would be "unconscionable" for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) (FCHA.MI) not to pursue a merger with rival General Motors (GM.N) and create a company that can generate $30 billion a year in cash, FCA chief Sergio Marchionne said in a newspaper interview.GM's board rebuffed a merger proposal from the Italian-American carmaker earlier this year. The rejection has not stopped Marchionne from working on the plan and lobbying GM investors in an effort to drag the GM board to the negotiating table, sources told Reuters in June.
In an interview published on Sunday on the website of Automotive News, Marchionne said he had studied every detail of a deal that would result in "cataclysmic changes in performance" but had not been able to start a discussion with GM.

Good Monday morning. As Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont continues to gain on her in the polls and as Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. considers joining the race, Hillary Rodham Clinton has increased her efforts to show her foundational support.
For all the attention paid to Mrs. Clinton’s email controversy and political vulnerabilities, she retains significant strengths, including her fund-raising ability, her institutional support, her organizational muscle and her potential to make history as the first female president.
After a difficult summer, Mrs. Clinton and her team are increasingly highlighting some of those strengths.

Chinese stocks end brutal August with another daily loss

Chao Deng
 
Asian stock markets closed their worst monthly performance in more than three years in August, as shares struggled to recover from a global selloff sparked by worries about China.
A slowdown in China’s economy, magnified by a surprise devaluation of the Chinese yuan earlier this month, accelerated a rout in Shanghai that spread across the globe, pushing down everything from stocks in the U.S. and Europe, to commodities and emerging market-currencies. While stability has returned in recent days in Asia, the selloff has left currencies in the region near multiyear lows and stocks at their lowest levels in months.

Is the EU living up to its obligations toward asylum seekers, and how will it cope with the intake of refugees, given rising xenophobia across the continent? Oksana is joined by Bill Frelick, the Director of the Refugee Program at Human Rights Watch, to analyse these issues.
