Or the UK could waive tariffs – but under WTO rules it would have to offer the same reductions to other countries as well. Government advice for the food and drink sector UK will apply food tariffs in case of no deal Could the UK drop tariffs to zero?

The flower growers worried about Brexit

This is set by an interim arrangement, which Kenya secured through signing and ratifying the Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and the East African Community. The deal is temporary until the three other members in the regional group sign up so it can come into full effect. Other major Kenyan exports such as tea, fruit and vegetables enjoy the same terms. Why worry about Brexit? Kenya Flower Council chief executive Clement Tulezi said the infrastructure for handling flowers flown directly to the UK was not well developed, which left Amsterdam and Liege, in Belgium, as the most important entry points for flowers into Europe, So, Kenyan flower-sellers are hoping the UK signs a deal with the EU before officially …

The joy of folding: how an everyday chore became an online, anxiety-busting sensation

YouTube folding tutorials have millions of views, while the likes of Marie Kondo have become a global phenomenon. But do perfectly neat drawers lead to a perfectly neat life? Fifteen years ago, Gal Rozov was so fed up with failing to meet his wifes high standards for laundry folding that he decided a different approach was required.

Nine prototypes later, his guide to 10 folding life hacks has almost a million views, and a simple demonstration of Instagram staple, while Marie Kondos books on decluttering in which folding …

Can Saudi Arabia turn its airline into a real rival to Emirates and Qatar?

Dubai (CNN Business)Saudi Arabia is hosting its first international air show as it seeks to turn its national airline into a global player. “Our brothers in the UAE and Qatar have worked so well to transform aviation in the Middle East … Saudi aviation companies should have a much greater share in the Middle East aviation market,” he said in an interview with Saudi state television in 2017.

Democrats should restore capitalism’s promise, not abandon it for socialism

(CNN)I believe in market-based capitalism. It is the greatest job creation, productivity and innovation machine ever created. The genius of America is that we allowed capitalism to work its magic while also moderating it with appropriate regulation, tax policy, workers’ rights and the building of great societal infrastructure, including a safety net. According to a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released this week just 18% of Americans view the term socialism positively, while 50% see it in a negative light. For that reason, President Trump would love for the 2020 election to be about socialism, as its one of the few things in the country that has a lower approval rating than he does. Fresh off Congress roundly rejecting his demands …

How Americas food giants swallowed the family farms

Across the midwest, the rise of factory farming is destroying rural communities. And the massive corporations behind this devastation are now eyeing a post-Brexit UK market When the vast expanse of rural Iowa was carved up for settlers in the 19th century, it was often divided into 160-acre lots. Four farms made a square mile, with a crisscross of dead-straight roads marking the boundaries like a sprawling chess board. Within each square, generations of families tended pigs and cattle, grew oats and raised children, with the sons most likely to take over the farm. That is how Barb Kalbach saw the future when she left her familys land to marry and begin farming with her new husband, Jim, 47 years …

Infamous Brexit promises haunt politicians as Britain faces crunch week

London (CNN)UK Prime Minister Theresa May is braced for what could be her biggest policy climbdown yet, after insisting for years that “no deal for Britain is better than a bad deal” and that her country would leave the European Union on March 29, 2019. The hubris and fantastical claims sold by many Brexit-supporting politicians — and indeed some remainers — are now facing their moment of truth as the deadline for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU looms large. As some companies jump ship, retailers stockpile products and fears of medicine shortages run high, one thing is becoming clear: The utopia that many of the 17.4 million Brexit voters dreamed of may be undeliverable. The sunlit uplands They initially …

Trump’s tariff war pushes US trade deficit to 10-year high

Trade imbalance rose to $621bn in 2018 despite new tariffs while deficit jumped 19% in December alone The US trade deficit hit a 10-year high in December, dealing a blow to Donald Trumps efforts to restrict imports, especially from China, with protectionist trade tariffs.

Joe Biden’s Biggest 2020 Problem Is Joe Biden

As Democratic voters begin to consider who to make their standard-bearer in the 2020 election, Joe Biden has held an early, commanding lead to take on Donald Trump. The former vice president spent the closing weeks of the 2018 midterms in what Politico a “working class whisperer tour” to the midwestern states that Trump carried.

Elizabeth Warren’s call to disband tech giants is a step in the right direction

(CNN)Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren argued in a blog post on Friday that “it’s time to break up Amazon, Google, and Facebook.” The reason, she says, is because they have become such large monopolies that they’re stifling competition from smaller startups and therefore impeding opportunities and innovation. Sen. Warren is right that the business monopolies these companies enjoy are bad for other American businesses and ultimately reduce the choices of consumers. But there’s another kind of power these tech companies all have that is an even bigger threat: their monopoly on information. Warren’s proposal doesn’t fully fix this larger problem.

This vending machine can help save the environment — and save you money

In the battle against plastic pollution, Henry Pino has devised a weapon. He calls it the Ecopod, or as he likes to describe it: A vending machine with an environmental conscience. Creating a ‘circular economy’ EcoPod is built upon the circular economy model, which aims to reduce waste by prolonging the use of items like plastic containers by finding ways to refill or reuse them. “I’ve always been in love with the beautiful marine environment that surrounds my home city of Miami,” said Pino, 55. “With the circular economy [model], our goal is to help facilitate a more sustainable retail model that protects the health of our planet.” Susan Collins, president of California-based nonprofit Container Recycling Institute, thinks Ecopod has …
