In response, the European Union hit the USA with tariffs on $3.2 billion worth of American products, including motorcycles.

Still, some analysts believe that a combination of the OPEC deal, USA oil , and an easing of American demand for energy should eventually contribute to lower oil prices , which in May hit their highest levels in more than three years. Countries with a lack of spare capacity, including Iran, Iraq and Venezuela, are resistant. Last year, OPEC members unanimously agreed on the oil price of USD 60 dollars per barrel, by cutting oil output by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) to 32.5 ...
Saudi energy minister Khalid Al-Falih. That's because some OPEC members would be unable to sufficiently ramp up crude production. Further to OPEC being blindsided by the rise of shale oil, the global "Easy-Money" environment perpetuated by central banks - namely the US Fed's Quantitative Easing (QE) program - has also played a key role in the Shale supply-boom.

That's more like Prime day-and-a-half, and it's clear Amazon wanted to beat last year's Prime Day which offered deals for a mere 30 hours. Amazon hasn't officially said any of this yet, but our sister site TechRadar stumbled across an Amazon Prime Day 2018 banner on the Amazon UK website.
Global GDP could stand to be hit by 2% - 3% should the trade war continue and spread, to put this into context the Great Recession wiped out 6% of the global GDP, so this trade spat is by no means insignificant.

It was clear, however, that there are still more questions than answers about what Canada's nascent legal-pot landscape will look like - how police will test motorists, what to do about those with prior marijuana convictions and just how the rules governing home cultivation will work.

Online retailers argued that the law was unconstitutional, and the State Supreme Court agreed, but the US Supreme Court overturned the state court ruling . Some members of Congress objected to the decision. The old rule enabled online commerce to boom and helped drive an explosion of small businesses that sell their wares.
The declines weighed on the S&P industrials index .SPLRCI , which fell 2.1 percent, its biggest one-day percentage drop in almost two months.

The president announced on Friday that the US would impose 25 percent tariffs on $ 50 billion in Chinese goods . In a statement, Mr Trump said he had asked the U.S. Trump has repeatedly called on China to end unfair trade practices and theft of US intellectual property. China had offered to ramp up purchases of American goods by only $70 billion to help cut the yawning trade imbalance with the U.S., whereas Trump had demanded a $200 billion deficit cut.

He did not say when the target list of Chinese goods would be unveiled. "Everyone knows ... China is the main perpetrator", he said. "This is predatory economics 101". A cut in Chinese purchases of U.S. oil may also benefit Iran's sales, which Washington is trying to curb with new sanctions it announced in May.
