Goldman's Cohn defends bank's trading business amid revenue slump

Cohn, President and Chief Operating Officer, Goldman Sachs attends the session 'Where Is the Chinese Economy Heading?' of the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in DavosCohn said there was little correlation between the average size of a bank's fixed income and equities trading revenue and the firm's overall return on equity, a key measure of how well it uses shareholder capital to earn profits. "While we could increase our market-making revenue, it may not translate into better returns," Cohn said at an investor conference organized by Deutsche Bank AG.

S&P says Japan sales tax hike delay makes 'some sense'

By Stanley White TOKYO (Reuters) - Delaying a sales tax increase in Japan scheduled for April next year makes "some sense" as it could push the economy into several quarters of anaemic growth, making it hard to raise revenue, a senior Standard & Poor's executive said on Tuesday.

Although Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has yet to declare his intentions regarding the planned sales tax hike, sources have told Reuters that he will delay the planned increase to 10 percent from 8 percent by two and a half years to October 2019.
