    A portrait of China's former chairman Mao Zedong is seen on an arch of an entrance to a construction site next to a residential area in Wuhan, Hubei province March 14, 2012. China's home prices are still far from falling to a reasonable level, and efforts to curb real estate speculation must be maintained or risk chaos and a property bubble which would harm the economy if it burst, Premier Wen Jiabao said on Wednesday. The banner shows the name of the construction site and company. REUTERS/Stringer (CHINA - Tags: BUSINESS CONSTRUCTION REAL ESTATE POLITICS) CHINA OUT. NO COMMERCIAL OR EDITORIAL SALES IN CHINA

U.S. prosecutors accused company executives of meeting more than 60 times at luxury hotels to fix prices of LCD panels, a conspiracy they say cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars.

    Austria's Finance Minister Maria Fekter, left, speaks with European Commissioner for the Economy Olli Rehn during a meeting of EU finance ministers at the EU Council building in Brussels on Tuesday, March 13, 2012. The decision to give Spain some more leeway on cutting this year's deficit is already triggering demands for more fiscal leniency for other European countries. Finance ministers from the eurozone said Monday that Spain will be allowed to run a deficit of 5.3 percent of gross domestic product this year, above the original 4.4 percent target.
