China's growing power is keeping Washington nervousWith its huge new infrastructure bank and its ambitions for a globalized renminbi currency, China is leading the upending of a 70-year-old global order built on American economic power. Beijing's rise was confirmed this week at the Spring meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund in Washington, the two institutions by which the economic vision of the United States has been propagated across the world since their founding in 1944. The US-selected president of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim, applauded China's "bold step in the direction of multilateralism" for its new Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank, even as many view it as a rival to the Bank. Kim stressed though that he expects the World Bank and the AIIB will work "very closely" together.

Republican presidential candidate U.S. Senator Paul speaks at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Conference in NashuaBy Andy Sullivan NASHUA, N.H. (Reuters) - Republican presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham took their debate over America's role in the world from the U.S. Senate floor to the campaign trail on Saturday in an early sign that foreign policy is likely to be a flash point in the 2016 election.

There's a group of folks in our party who would have troops in six countries right now, maybe more."

Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Osborne gestures during an election campaign event in LondonBy David Milliken LONDON (Reuters) - Chancellor George Osborne said on Sunday that he intends to sell billions of pounds of government shares in Lloyds Banking Group to small investors if his Conservative Party wins the May 7 election. Britain's government put more than 20 billion pounds of public money into Lloyds at the height of the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009 - buying 43 percent of the bank - and has since sold almost half of this back to large investors. The move harks back to the privatisation of Britain's state telecoms and gas monopolies in the 1980s under former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, which aimed to encourage ordinary Britons to invest in the stock market. With opinion polls published overnight showing the opposition Labour Party level with the Conservatives, Prime Minister David Cameron is expected later on Sunday to promote the planned sale as a sign of Britain's recovery from the financial crisis.
