NEW YORK, Aug 5 (Reuters) - A former head of Societe Generale SA's (SOGN.PA) Treasury desk in Paris can stay in France, rather than travel to the United States, to defend against U.S. charges she tried to rig the Libor benchmark interest rate, a U.S. court ruled on Thursday. Reversing a lower court ruling, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said Muriel Bescond was not a fugitive and need not cross the Atlantic Ocean, and risk detention, to seek a dismissal of her indictment. "All Bescond has done is stay home, where she remained during the allegedly criminal scheme, and where her government permits … [Read more...] about Ex-Societe Generale banker wins U.S. appeal in Libor-rigging case
HOUSEHOLDS that fail to respond to letters hitting doormats across the country face a fine of £1,000. Councils are sending out forms in the post about who is registered to vote at each address. These letters are legitimate, not junk mail, and are known as a Household Response form. Local authorities must do an annual canvas to check that the details of everyone who is registered to vote are correct. This usually happens between July and November and you need to check the information and respond. Even if nothing has changed and the information about everyone in your house is correct, you still need to confirm this. What is the Household Response Form? These letters are posted to your letterbox by your local council between July and November each year - so the exact date you get one will depend on when yours is sent out. Now is the key period for the forms to be sent out, so make sure you respond on time, even if the information is correct. Every home in the UK … [Read more...] about Household Response: why you need to open this letter from your council – or risk getting a £1,000 fine

It’s hard for those of us who live outside of China to grasp how paying for everything has gone digital in the country. Most businesses there, from the fanciest hotels to roadside fruit stands, display a QR code — a type of bar code — that people scan with a smartphone camera to pay with China’s dominant digital payment apps, Alipay and WeChat. Paying by app is so much the norm that taxi drivers might curse at you for handing them cash . My colleague Ray Zhong , who used to live in Beijing and wrote about Alipay’s parent company selling stock to the public for the first time , spoke with me about how China’s digital payment apps created new kinds of commerce, and whether China offers a glimpse at a cashless future for the rest of us. Shira: How did Alipay and WeChat get so popular in China? Ray: Credit cards were never prevalent in China. The country skipped over a … [Read more...] about Don’t Even Try Paying Cash in China
For the second consecutive quarter, Goldman Sachs ( NYSE:GS ) has delivered revenue and earnings that shattered even the most optimistic expectations. In this Fool Live video clip, recorded on July 19 , Fool contributor Matt Frankel, CFP, and Industry Focus host Jason Moser discuss the numbers and what investors should know about them. Jason Moser: In regard to investment banking, investment banking, I think, has really had an interesting period of time here, particularly with all these IPOs, the SPAC movement, there's just been a lot of business to underwrite lately. How did that impact Goldman Sachs? Because that's the investment bank, this bank really should be shining in this investment banking environment. Matthew Frankel: Yes. Their investment banking revenue was the second-highest it's ever been. The first quarter was the highest, so they almost beat their own record. The IPO market certainly helped, Goldman's a big IPO underwriter. There have been a … [Read more...] about Goldman Sachs Just Reported a Monster Quarter — Will the Strong Results Continue?
