Canada slips a notch in global competitiveness ranking
The Globe and Mail
Canada has slipped a bit further down the rankings of the world's most competitive economies, as the country's lagging innovation puts it at a disadvantage to its international peers, the World Economic Forum (WEF) said. The international economic foundation ranked Canada 15th out of 144 countries in its annual world competitiveness index, down one position from last year's report. It was Canada's lowest ranking since 2006 on the index, which scores economies on a wide range of criteria that contribute to competitiveness.

Business Standard
The fact that Brent crude oil prices have fallen to $101 a barrel, the lowest in about a year, despite crises in a number of oil-producing countries in West Asia and the standoff between Russia and Ukraine, comes as major relief for India. This is because about 85 per cent of its oil requirements are met through imports. In this year's estimated oil requirement of 223.7 million tonnes (mt), the share of imports is projected at 188.2 mt.

Inching up of premiums for physical delivery of gold suggest demand is returning. A fortnight earlier, the premiums were marginal and, on some occasions, there was a discount to the landed cost of imports. In the past few days, premiums of $10-12 an ounce are quoted.
