Spain is under intense pressure to show it can rekindle economic growth and cut its budget deficit to avoid becoming the next eurozone country to need a bailout.

  • Employers posted slightly more job openings in February, suggesting that modest hiring gains should continue in coming months. The Labor Department says that employers advertised 3.5 million job openings in February. That is a slight increase from January but still below a three-year high reached in December.
  • In what's being described as a mutual decision reached with the company, Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn is stepping down from the nation's largest consumer electronics retailer. Best Buy has been criticized for not responding quickly enough to growing competition and changing shopping habits.
