Ford is collaborating with its Detroit arch-rival, GM, on high-efficiency gearboxes. Daimler is increasingly co-operating with a long-standing alliance between Renault and Nissan. Even Toyota, the world’s largest carmaker, is having to swallow its pride and work with rivals such as BMW on fuel-cell technology. The pressure on companies to form alliances with rivals is growing inexorably http://econ.st/1evFSBk
IN THE run-up to the British election this month, it was taken for granted that politics was entering an age of alliances. No party would win a majority; that much...

Sport is riddled with graft, from the bungs given to officials who help hand tournaments to undeserving countries, to the betting syndicates that rake in ill-gotten gains from match-fixing with help from unscrupulous players. FIFA, more than any other sports organisation, has become a global symbol of pervasive corruption. The arrest and indictment of FIFA officials may be a turning-point for football’s scandal-hit governing body http://econ.st/1SDMn4K

America has led the global assault on tax dodgers and their enablers. But the reality still lags behind the rhetoric http://econ.st/1KwUfCM

It could be the heydey for Europe's Greens; parties that began on the ideological fringes in the 1980s. Though if they shift too far left, that could deny them the option of bargaining with the centre. Shaky economies and high unemployment also pose risks for parties focused on the environment. They shouldn't throw caution to the winds http://econ.st/1PNjPai
WITH his tousled but cherubic looks and a voice sounding even younger than his 29 years, Jesse Klaver is the latest standard-bearer of a party that is trying to...

Coming from solution serves Greens well. The coalition with conservatives over rural solar in rural Germany is a real winning model.

Energy subsidies stoke waste, squeeze other spending, enrich middlemen and help the comfortably-off more than the poor, who use little energy. They kill people, and they cook the planet. They also cost $5.3 trillion. It's a no-brainer http://econ.st/1cZoJPy

Football, like politics, arouses strong passions in Egypt. The league was cancelled in 2012 after a brawl at a match in Port Said left 74 dead. Matches are now played behind closed doors, without fans, to avoid incidents. Even so, Egypt’s hard-core fans, known as “ultras” were recently banned by a court in Cairo. Why were they shown the red card? http://econ.st/1JUuGdE

Football is a barbaric sport anyway but who would ever imagine terrorism as an ending outcome for a world or global league.   WOW, 74 innocent people dead that's hard to digest.
