Preparations are underway for next Monday's African Union summit, one that marks the formal and complete return of Morocco into the club of continental nations. This after decades of conflict over its annexation of Western Sahara. On the world stage, King Mohammed the 6th can boast growing trade and influence. Morocco's even entering the Ecowas group of West African nations, making his country even more of a conduit between the continent and Europe. But that image abroad's in stark contrast with the anger that's spilled over in the northern Rif region, where the death of a fishmonger as he tried to salvage his confiscated catch has continued to spiral.

Russian president blames Europe’s policy on the Middle East and North Africa for the current refugee crisis. Vladimir Putin said the crisis was absolutely expected. He noted that Russia had warned earlier that there would be a crisis if the west continued its mistakes in the region. The Russian president called European leaders shortsighted, accusing them of blindly following US orders. Putin said the US media is hypocritical in its coverage of the suffering of asylum-seekers arriving in Europe.

Debt monetizing policies by the European Central Bank and the Fed may also reduce competitiveness against China, India and other emerging economies.
