File photo of Batakis, Economy Minister of Buenos Aires' Province speaking in La Plata
Silvina Batakis, Economy Minister of Buenos Aires' Province speaks in this handout photo taken on April 30, 2015 in La Plata. Argentina's ruling party candidate Daniel Scioli said on Thursday he would appoint his trusted economy minister in the province of Buenos Aires to take the same role on a national level if he wins the October 25 presidential election. The next government will inherit a sovereign debt default, an acute dollar shortage, double-digit inflation and a gaping fiscal deficit. Analysts said Scioli's comments would be viewed positively by financial markets. Batakis, largely unknown outside of Argentina, took the helm of Buenos Aires province economy ministry in December 2011 and last year turned its chronic fiscal deficit into surplus, partly via tax reform.

Supporters of Ecuador's President Rafael Correa gather outside the presidential palace as protesters were marching against Correa's government in Quito, Ecuador, July 2, 2015. In recent weeks, protesters have filled the streets of Ecuador to protest moves by Correa to raise taxes on inheritances by up to 77 percent that critics say is nothing more than a money grab. He says the law is designed to avoid accumulation of wealth in the Andean country and instead seeks to redistribute it. Members of Correa's left-leaning government slammed the protesters in Quito on Wednesday, saying they are seeking to undermine public order and threaten to disrupt the impending visit of Pope Francis to the country.

Judges Michael Eichberger, vice-president of Germany's Constitutional Court Ferdinand Kirchhof and Reinhard Gaier (L-R) take off their hats after the announcement of the verdict on an inheritance law file at Germany's Federal Constitutional Court (Bundesverfassungsgericht) in Karlsruhe, December 17, 2014. Germany's Constitutional Court ruled on Wednesday that inheritance tax breaks granted to family-run companies were illegal in their current form, a verdict which could hurt many "Mittelstand" firms that form the backbone of the economy. The court gave lawmakers until mid-2016 to come up with a new law that ensures companies and individuals are treated equally. Until that time existing rules will apply, giving families who own firms time to resolve inheritance issues under the old regime. The case was brought by the Federal Fiscal Court, which challenged a 2009 law that allows ownership of family-run firms to be passed from one generation to the next tax free, provided the heirs keep it going for seven years and preserve jobs. Around 90 percent of German companies are family-run, employing more than half of the country's workforce and producing half of Germany's economic output.
