Do You Want to Run India's Central Bank? http://ow.ly/FQLj301Cde3
This week’s long-speculated departure of Indian central bank Governor Raghuram Rajan reflected the Indian government’s view that he was no longer welcome at the helm. However, it also reflects the challenges all central bankers face in driving an economy.

In Asia, Gender Quotas Were Supposed to Help Female Politicians http://ow.ly/y2vu301B864
In January 2016, Tsai Ing-wen made history after being elected as Taiwan’s first female president. Several women before her such as Park Geun-hye in South Korea, Ying-luck Shinawatra in Thailand and Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar have all risen to top political leadership in recent years. With these high-profile female politicians featured in the media, it may appear that the political glass ceiling has been shattered in East Asia.

World Bank Will Help Mexicans Achieve Greater Financial Inclusion http://ow.ly/5yRe301B10X
In Mexico, less than half the population has a bank account (just 44%). In fact, 2.6% of the billion individuals around the world without bank accounts live in Mexico. Much of the population lacks any meaningful inclusion in the larger economy and is left out of the regulated financial system.

For Our Next Vacation, Let's Visit a Slum http://ow.ly/YjnZ301Catm
Back in Victorian times, wealthier citizens could sometimes be found wandering among London’s poorer, informal neighbourhoods, distributing charity to the needy. “Slumming” – as it was called – was later dismissed as a morally dubious and voyeuristic pastime. Today, it’s making a comeback; wealthy Westerners are once more making forays into slums – and this time, they’re venturing right across the developing world.

French Labor Unrest Results in Numerous Arrests http://ow.ly/WMNe301B1GH
French police arrested around 100 people shortly before Thursday’s labor reform protest march, according to BBC. Many French citizens remain upset over President Francois Hollande’s intention to loosen certain labor laws, such as allowing employers to fire employees when necessary, leeway in lowering wages and increasing the number of hours worked per week.

Brexit Forces Scramble for Safety http://ow.ly/Enx5301AZDm
The UK's decision to leave the EU spurred a dramatic risk-off move through the capital markets. The dollar, yen, and gold soared. Equities and emerging market assets sold off hard. Core bond yields fell sharply.

Who is Trashing the TPP and Who Can Save It? http://ow.ly/egn0301zWC9
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is under siege, with presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle voicing increasingly protectionist positions. As the general election gets into full swing this fall, the anti-trade rhetoric promises to reach fever pitch, taking down TPP in the process.
