The World Bank on Tuesday slashed its China growth forecast for the year as the pandemic and weaknesses in the property sector hit the world’s second-largest economy. Both figures are well below Beijing’s GDP growth target of around 5.5 percent for the year, a figure many analysts believe is now unattainable. “Economic activity in China continues to track the ups and downs of the pandemic — outbreaks and growth slowdowns have been followed by uneven recoveries,” the World Bank said. “Persistent stress” in the real estate sector — which accounts for about a quarter of annual GDP — could have wider macroeconomic and financial effects, the World Bank noted. The world economy is being battered by surging interest rates aimed at fighting runaway inflation that has been triggered by Russia’s war in Ukraine as well as global supply chain snarls.1 month ago The Street Journal
During a Cabinet council meeting on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, President Yoon Suk Yeol also acknowledged that South Korea lacks research on crowd management. The crowd surge is South Korea’s deadliest disaster since the 2014 ferry sinking that killed 304 people and exposed the country’s lax safety rules and regulatory failures. Saturday’s (October 29, 2022) crowd surge has subsequently raised public questions about what South Korea has done to prevent human-made disasters. After the Itaewon disaster, police launched a 475-member task force to find its cause. President Yoon asked officials to provide the same government support to the bereaved families of the foreign victims as to South Korean dead and injured people.2 months ago The Street Journal
A combative Donald Trump launched into the 2024 White House race on Tuesday, setting the stage for a bruising Republican nomination battle after a poor midterm election showing by his hand-picked candidates weakened his grip on the party. “In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Trump said, minutes after filing the official paperwork for his third presidential run. Trump’s unusually early entry into the race is being seen in Washington as an attempt to get the jump on other Republicans seeking to be party flag-bearer — and to stave off potential criminal charges. Having failed to wrest control of the Senate, Republicans appeared poised to take over the House with a razor-thin majority. And though abandoned by several top donors, he has a campaign war chest of well over $100 million.2 months ago The Street Journal
