Will coronavirus trigger a global recession? | Jeffrey Frankel

World economy’s prospects look bleak because of Covid-19 outbreak and Donald Trump’s trade policyAt the start of this year, things seemed to be looking up for the global economy.

Desperate Dems Wanted a Debate. They Got a Trainwreck Instead.

It was late into Tuesday night’s debate when former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg challenged Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) about his praise for the domestic gains made by the Castro regime in Cuba. Sanders shot back to defend himself and his policy agenda. And then, they just started yelling. For the next half minute, the two screamed at each other, Sanders pointing his finger aimlessly over the dais, the candidates made annoyed hand gestures as a voice of a moderator, desperate to gain control o...

Desperate Democrats Brawl in Chaotic South Carolina Debate

The stage in Charleston was set for a pile-on. Senator Bernie Sanders stood in the middle of the seven-candidate field, flanked by competitors all too aware that his lead in the Democratic primary is on the verge of becoming prohibitive. But rather than hammer Sanders, the desperate candidates hacked away at one another. Sanders took plenty of incoming, but Tuesday’s Democratic debate devolved into a chaotic, all-way melee. Elizabeth Warren continued her attacks on Michael Bloomberg; Jo...

With days to go before South Carolina votes and not much longer before 14 other states weigh in on Super Tuesday, Sanders was a clear target for his competitors in Charleston, South Carolina, who in large part have stayed away from attacking him head-on in other debates. That changed in the debate’s second minute, when former New York...

Despite CDC Warning, Trump Doesn’t Sound Too Concerned About Coronavirus

President Donald Trump has treated the global coronavirus outbreak like most obstacles in his way — as a messaging opportunity. Apparently worried about a downturn in the stock market ahead of his re-election bid in 10 months, the President on Monday broke a weeks-long Twitter silence on the matter and reassured… investors. The market has tumbled in light of the outbreak’s threat. The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countrie...
