  • A Qatari-led consortium looked set to win its long-running battle to buy Songbird Estates Plc on Wednesday after the owner of London's Canary Wharf business district dropped its opposition to the $4 billion offer. The Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) and its bid partner launched a 350 pence-per-share offer direct to Songbird shareholders in December, hoping to add a financial district rivaling the City of London to landmarks already in its portfolio such as the Shard skyscraper and Harrods department store. Canary Wharf's steel and glass towers, home to banks such as HSBC , Citi and JP Morgan , embody the change in London's economy in the second half of the 20th century as industry dwindled and financial services grew. The QIA already owned 29 percent of Songbird, which in turn owns 70 percent of Canary Wharf Group.

  • MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian government, facing its worst economic crisis in a decade, on Wednesday detailed how it intends to cut spending over the next three years in all parts of the economy except military and social programs.

  • By Megan Rowling BARCELONA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The world can improve living standards for all while cutting climate-changing emissions to keep to an internationally agreed limit for global warming, a team led by the British government said on Wednesday. It launched an online calculator (www.globalcalculator.org) allowing businesses, governments, researchers and the public to explore how different ways of pursuing economic development to 2050 will shape carbon emissions and rising temperatures. "The calculator clearly highlights that we can meet our 2°C target while maintaining good lifestyles – but we need to set ambitious targets on all fronts and use innovation to address climate change," said Mike Cherrett, director of operations at Climate-KIC, a European public-private partnership that jointly funded the tool.

  • By Jason Bush MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia announced a $35 billion "anti-crisis" spending plan on Wednesday to bail out an economy battered by Western sanctions and falling oil prices, but gave few details of the deep cuts it said would be enacted this year to pay for it. "This plan is something like a cushion to avoid a rapid deterioration in Russia and support several of the most important economic agents (and provide) social support," said Sberbank chief economist Yulia Tseplaeva. President Vladimir Putin has ordered that defense and social spending cannot be cut, underscoring his focus on preserving Russia's international might and social stability. Ivan Tchakarov, Russia economist at Citibank, said that the plan was necessarily vague, as Moscow has yet to revise its budget and macroeconomic forecasts for this year.
