Toyota becomes Uber's shareholder

Toyota bought a stake in the capital of Uber, the world leader in the sector. The transaction value was not disclosed, but the agreement provides an important trade chapter: Toyota will ensure the leasing of vehicles to drivers which in turn will repay with shares of their tariffs. The move of the Japanese manufacturer is the answer to the initiatives that competitors have implemented in recent weeks: the GM found for $ 500 million participation in Lyft, while Volkswagen has entered the Israeli Gett putting on the plate 300 million. The more substantial the wildcard has nonetheless played the Apple, ready to bet a billion of Didi-Chuxing, the Chinese Uber growing very fast. In the opinion of analysts, Uber is the right partner to Toyota with its smaller models can easily deal with the traffic of the most congested urban areas where the US company is the undisputed leader.

Central Banks believe being now out of ammunition

OUR MACROECONOMIC ANALYSIS The three largest developed economy Central Banks met again in April. The Bank of Japan took the markets by surprise in ultimately declining to take new easing measures. This could very well be a sign that Central Banks believe they are now out of ammunition. Governments must now seriously pick up the pace of structural reforms to make long-term growth last. It happens that growth generally fell short of expectations in the first quarter, except in Europe and China. The current slowdown includes a strong structural component (i.e., demographic changes and a marked slowdown in productivity gains). The consensus nonetheless forecasts a macroeconomic upturn in the second half, which will be welcome in the current environment. This rebound has already been abundantly priced in to commodities.

White smoke for aid to Greece after a long negotiation that lasted 11 hours: Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has got not only aid but also the green light to debt restructuring. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), to break the deadlock, has explicitly demanded to the Eurogroup a serious and concrete commitment on debt relief before getting involved in the third assistance program.

Japan's exports plunge the most since January amid strong Yen and weakness in China

Japan's exports dropped in April at the quickest pace in three months as a stronger Yen and weakness in China and other emerging markets take their toll on the country's shipments, denting growth prospects for the current quarter. Overseas shipments plunged 10.1% in April from a year earlier, the Ministry of Finance said, while economists had predicted a 10.0% annual decline and following a 6.8% decrease in March. It was the seventh straight month of declines and the biggest since 12.9% in January, when Japanese shipments to Asia slowed sharply ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays. The drop was likely exaggerated by a fall in US-bound car exports due to supply-chain disruptions caused by last month's earthquakes in southern Japan, but a surging Yen and tepid global demand are clouding the outlook for the year.
