Warren launches White House 2020 bid

Sunday 19:04 GMT

US Senator Elizabeth Warren has formally launched her bid to stand for the White House in 2020 with a speech in which she promised to tackle economic inequality.

In the shadow of long-unused smoke stacks, at the site of a famous factory strike more than a century ago, Elizabeth Warren formally launched her presidential bid. She used the backdrop to highlight what she sees as the plight of an American working class that has been left behind by rapacious big business and indifferent government.

Fragile global economy could tip, Roubini warns

Sunday 15:24 GMT

Though there is a cloud over the global economy, the silver lining is that it has made the major central banks more dovish, starting with the Fed and the People’s Bank of China, and quickly followed by the European Central Bank, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, and others.

After the synchronized global economic expansion of 2017 came the asynchronous growth of 2018, when most countries other than the United States started to experience slowdowns.

Hockey Day in Canada showcases key games for country’s NHL teams

Sunday 13:34 GMT

Six of the country’s seven squads are still in the hunt for playoff spots, making each of this year’s Hockey Day in Canada matchups an opportunity to collect crucial points.

“Obviously, playing in the U.S., we don’t get as many opportunities as you do in Canada to play on Hockey Night in Canada. It’s something that I know, as Canadians, you look forward to and it’s easy to get excited for,” said Vancouver native Evander Kane.

Brett Kavanaugh shows true colours in supreme court abortion dissent

Sunday 13:34 GMT

The statue is nearly identical to a Texas law the supreme court struck down in 2016, ruling that requiring abortion providers to obtain hospital privileges is unduly burdensome and provides no medical benefit to women.

Kavanaugh’s dissent has been taken by many as a clear sign that he is intent on overturning Roe v Wade, the supreme court decision protecting access to abortions. Anger is now mounting towards Senator Susan Collins, who cast the decisive vote confirming Kavanaugh last year.

Trump rejects Khashoggi Congress deadline

Sunday 15:24 GMT

The Trump administration has refused to respond to a request from Congress to provide a report determining who killed the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The US has imposed sanctions on 17 Saudi officials, including Saud al-Qahtani, a former adviser to the crown prince who, it alleged, was "part of the planning and execution of the operation" that led to Khashoggi's murder. However, the documents do not indicate who was responsible for Khashoggi's death, as demanded by the senators.

Brett Kavanaugh should never been allowed on the supreme court

Sunday 15:24 GMT

Brett Kavanaugh went after women’s reproductive rights this week, just months after being placed on the US supreme court.

Once the court’s rulings are called into question on basic fundamental grounds of judicial bias, its legitimacy becomes as shaky and threatening to the political system as Wall Street’s alchemy of converting suspect “C” mortgage bonds into “A” rated ones was to the economy.

Elizabeth Warren to declare 2020 run with income equality at centre of campaign

Sunday 15:24 GMT

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has picked this working-class city for the expected kickoff of her 2020 president campaign, banking on a populist call to fight economic inequality that she hopes will distinguish her in a crowded Democratic field and help her move past the controversy surrounding her past claims to Native American heritage.

The backing could prove valuable for Warren given his status as a rising young Democratic star and his friendship with her potential 2020 rival, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas.

Billionaires haven’t earned all they have

Sunday 15:24 GMT

By proposing to tax large incomes at a higher rate and to tax the wealth of the very rich, progressive politicians such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are forcing a long-overdue re-examination of what billionaires actually contribute.

Are billionaires and other “people of means” (billionaire Howard Schultz’s preferred phrase) the main engines of social progress and economic growth, as many on the right say? Or, are they “vampire squids” sucking the lifeblood of the economy, as a few on the left believe?
