Today's Headlines

  • In Miami’s Little Havana, Castro’s Death Sparks Celebration. Cuban-Americans took to the streets in Miami Saturday morning as news spread that Fidel Castro, the father of the Cuban revolution and a man who prompted many to flee the island, leaving behind homes and family members, had died at 90. While Havana remained eerily quiet after the announcement of Castro’s death on state media, hundreds had gathered on a stretch of 8th Street in Miami’s Little Havana, banging pots and pans and dancing. Cars rolled slowly through the streets, honking and waving Cuban and American flags. Other celebrations were seen in Cuban-American neighborhoods like Hialeah.

A win for Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in next month’s constitutional reform referendum won’t necessarily lead to a straightforward, positive outcome for the nation’s bonds, according to ABN Amro Private Banking. Italian sovereign securities tumbled in the wake of Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the U.S. presidential elections this month, on concern that the nation could be next in line when it comes to anti-establishment movements. The same could happen regardless of the outcome of the Dec. 4 vote.
  • Clinton Recount Plan Draws Sore Loser Jibe From Team Trump. Hillary Clinton’s campaign will participate in vote recounts of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan if they take place, drawing a rebuke from Donald Trump’s team that the Democrat is being a “sore loser” and part of a “ridiculous” effort. If Green Party candidate Jill Stein initiates recounts in those states as she intends, the Clinton campaign “will participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides,” Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias said Saturday in a post on the blogging website He added that he doesn’t expect the action to overturn Trumps election.
