Brazilian leader at odds with Davos focus on environment

Jan 22, 2019

DAVOS, Switzerland — Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro pledged to work "in harmony with the world" to cut carbon emissions, aiming to quell international concerns that his country, the main custodian of the oxygen-rich Amazon, could put economic interests over environmental ones. The environment dominated talks at the World Economic Forum on Tuesday, and the nationalist leader struck a conciliatory tone in a keynote speech — a far cry from the combative one he had taken on the campaign trail when he once threatened to join the United States and pull Brazil out of the Paris climate accord, which set a...

Investor sentiment for Germany ticks up, but still depressed

Jan 22, 2019

FRANKFURT, Germany — A survey of financial experts suggests the outlook for Germany, Europe's largest economy, brightened slightly during January because the worst risks were already reflected in earlier months' readings. The ZEW institute's indicator rose 2.5 points over December's reading to minus 15.0 points. That is still far below the long-term average of plus 22.4 points. ZEW President Achim Wambach said Tuesday earlier surveys were down sharply as respondents anticipated risks to German growth such as a disorderly departure from the European Union by Britain or weaker growth in major trade partner China. He said: "It is remarkable that...
