LONDON/BERLIN, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Being offered cash at the gate to take a later flight because of overbooking may become a rarity if technology being examined by major airlines such as British Airways, JetBlue and Qantas catches on. The forceful removal of a passenger from an overbooked United Airlines flight last year sparked an online backlash last year and U.S. carriers pledged to revise their policies. Many airlines still routinely overbook flights because a small number of passengers do not show up.
ATLANTA (BSE: ATLANTA.BO - news) , Jan 8 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve may only need to raise interest rates two times in 2018 given weak price pressures and possible loss of public confidence in the central bank's ability to hit a 2 percent inflation target, Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic said on Monday. Bostic, a voter on interest rate policy this year, also added his voice to a group of Fed officials concerned that central bank action may "invert" the yield curve and make long-term rates lower than short-term ones, historically a signal of future recession.
WASHINGTON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 19 (Reuters) - U.S. single-family homebuilding and permits surged to more than 10-year highs in November, in a hopeful sign for a housing market that has been hobbled by supply constraints. The bullish report from the Commerce Department on Tuesday followed a survey on Monday that showed confidence among homebuilders soaring to near an 18-1/2-year high in December. The Commerce Department said single-family homebuilding, which accounts for the largest share of the housing market, jumped 5.3 percent to a rate of 930,000 units.

The move comes amid turmoil in the UK rent-to-own sector as its biggest players struggle to cope with more onerous regulation and signs of weakening consumer spending.

WASHINGTON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 18 (Reuters) - The U.S. economy expanded at a modest to moderate pace in September through early October despite the impact of hurricanes on some regions, the Federal Reserve said in its latest snapshot of the U.S. economy released on Wednesday, but there were still few signs of an acceleration in inflation. "Despite widespread labor tightness, the majority of districts reported only modest to moderate wage pressures," the U.S. central bank said in its Beige Book report of the economy, derived from talking to business contacts across the country. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma hit during the survey period and will have a negative effect on third-quarter economic growth, the Fed has said, although it expects the impact to be temporary.
WASHINGTON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 18 (Reuters) - U.S. homebuilding fell to a one-year low in September as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma disrupted the construction of single-family homes in the South, suggesting housing probably remained a drag on economic growth in the third quarter. The report on Wednesday from the Commerce Department also showed a decline in building permits, raising concerns that the housing market recovery was stalling. Homebuilding and sales are well below their peaks before the housing bubble burst in 2006.

The euro jumped more than 1 percent and yields on benchmark U.S. government debt remained at unattractive rates on Friday after the world's two leading central bankers declined to discuss monetary policy in keynote speeches. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's non-policy remarks at an annual meeting of central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming pushed U.S. Treasury debt yields lower and increased chances that the U.S. central bank will not raise interest rates in December as had been widely anticipated. The euro, meanwhile, jumped more than 1 percent after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, speaking after Yellen, did not talk down the euro zone single currency's strength as some investors had speculated.
Wall Street put a floor under global equities on Friday after a weak inflation reading brought investors back into U.S. stocks even as tensions between the United States and North Korea continued to escalate, though that tension still drove safe-haven buying of gold and the yen. A small rise in a measure of U.S. consumer prices pointed to benign inflation that could make the Federal Reserve cautious about raising interest rates again this year, which would be favorable to equity investors. The hope that the Fed will have to slow its rate-hike path appeared to stop, at least for now, the near $1-trillion loss in world stocks valuations this week triggered by the war of words between Pyongyang and Washington.

Sterling is set to plummet by double-digits by the end of the year on slowing UK economic growth and the likelihood the Bank of England will hold off raising interest rates, said Guy Petcho of Voya Investment Management.

The former Soros Fund Management analyst said second-quarter UK economic growth would likely be weak at slightly below 1 percent on an annualized basis.
World stock markets edged higher on Thursday, buoyed by a slight rebound in oil prices after hitting seven-month lows, while the U.S. dollar weakened for a second consecutive session.
