Sterling falls as Brexit talks between the UK's two main parties collapse

Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn during the State Opening of Parliament on June 21, 2017 in London, United Kingdom.

Hopes that the U.K.’s two largest political parties can hash out a Brexit agreement have ended.

Six weeks of talks between the most senior lawmakers from the ruling Conservative Party and main opposition Labour party have ended with no deal. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday that talks had “gone as far as they can go” and his party will now oppose her Brexit proposal.

Corbyn added that the lack of support behind May and the likelihood that she will soon be replaced as prime minister had undermined talks.

“The increasing weakness and instability of your government means there cannot be confidence in securing whatever might be agreed between us,” he said.

As skepticism grew over a cross-party deal, the pound has embarked on nine straight sessions of losses versus the euro, marking the longest unbroken run of losses this century. Versus the dollar it dipped to $1.2760 on Friday, marking a four-month low. This after almost reaching $1.34 as recently as March.

It is now expected that the U.K. government will put various options, known as indicative votes, to Parliament instead. The last time lawmakers in the lower house of Parliament — the House of Commons — held such a series of votes on Brexit there was no majority preference for any outcome.

Walmart announces next-day delivery, firing back at Amazon

Walmart announces next-day delivery, firing back at Amazon

Walmart is firing back.

The biggest retailer in the world will now offer shoppers the option to have their online orders delivered the next day, following Amazon, which on April 25 announced plans to spend $800 million for one-day delivery for all Amazon Prime members.

Walmart said Tuesday it is rolling out next-day delivery in Phoenix, Las Vegas and Southern California over the next few days and will expand it to reach roughly 75% of American consumers by the end of 2019, including 40 of the top 50 major metros.

Amazon hasn’t yet detailed a timeline for its own rollout of next-day shipping. But even before its April announcement, the company had offered same-day and two-hour delivery for Prime members in certain markets for certain products and at an additional cost. Amazon’s next-day shipping plan expands the number of items and ZIP codes eligible for expedited service.

Walmart isn’t disclosing the cost of its latest delivery push. But the company says it has been working on it for quite some time.

In January 2017, Walmart started offering free, two-day shipping for orders totaling more than $35, lowering its minimum purchase threshold from $50. It had already bought Jet.com for $3 billion in 2016 to juice its online business and compete with Amazon. That deal helped it reach shoppers in bigger cities, like New York, in less time.

“We have been working on this for the past several years,” Marc Lore, head of Walmart’s e-commerce business in the U.S., said about the move toward next-day shipping. “We’ve been investing … and now we are in the position to reap the benefits.”

To start, next-day delivery will be available for about 220,000 items “most frequently purchased” online, Walmart said, including toys and electronics. The company said it plans to make more items available to ship next day over time. And the option is only free for orders over $35. Amazon, for comparison, has no minimum purchase threshold for free, next-day delivery but requires customers to have a Prime membership, which costs $119 annually.

“This is the future of the Walmart.com supply chain,” Lore said. “The more products we add to this experience … the more profitable the orders will be.”

When Amazon made its one-day shipping the new standard for all Prime customers last month it sent shares of Walmart and Target tumbling, as investors worried bricks-and-mortar retailers would now have to spend more money to match the e-commerce giant’s steps. Walmart’s stock price was up 0.5% in Tuesday’s premarket. Amazon shares were 1% higher.

“It’s this nebulous thing called the Amazon effect,” said John Bonno, managing director in the retail practice at AlixPartners. “I think retailers are so afraid. … [They’re] so nervous that any new service that Amazon offers, retailers feel they need to go through hoops,” to match it.

New Zealand should always ‘speak its mind’ to China, former prime minister says

New Zealand’s relationship with China had become “too transactional” in recent years, but it needs to be able to raise concerns with Asia’s superpower, according to former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark. “But you never want to limit your freedom as a country to be able to raise issues that are on your mind.” Clark emphasized the need for New Zealand to keep its foreign policy position — which she described as “very much of a small country with its own values that will speak its mind when

New Zealand should always 'speak its mind' to China, former prime minister says

New Zealand’s relationship with China had become “too transactional” in recent years, but it needs to be able to raise concerns with Asia’s superpower, according to former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark.

Speaking to CNBC at the Asian Development Bank’s annual meeting in Fiji, Clark was reflecting on how New Zealand-China relations had become strained after Chinese tech giant Huawei was temporarily banned from participating in the country’s rollout of 5G — a new generation of mobile network that’s set to bring about a variety of tech innovations.

“Before the government of (current Prime Minister) Jacinda Ardern, the relationship had probably become rather too transactional, very focused on material benefit,” Clark said in a Friday interview with CNBC at the Asian Development Bank’s annual meeting in Fiji.

During her tenure leading the country, from 1999 to 2008, she said she was able to broach tough subjects with Beijing when visiting the country — her administration “always kept the space where we could raise issues of concern.”

“A small Western democracy has to be able to raise those issues, and of course the Chinese will respond, and there will be a robust response,” she told CNBC. “But you never want to limit your freedom as a country to be able to raise issues that are on your mind.”

Clark emphasized the need for New Zealand to keep its foreign policy position — which she described as “very much of a small country with its own values that will speak its mind when it needs to” — in the “China relationship story.”

“When (New Zealand) speaks, no one thinks: ‘Who are they speaking for?’ No. New Zealand speaks for itself,” Clark said.

Brexit talks resume as May's leadership comes under renewed pressure

Brexit talks between the U.K. government and the main opposition Labour party have resumed after lawmakers returned to work following the Easter break.

A spokesperson for U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May told reporters Tuesday that the talks will “require compromise on both sides.”

Asked if the government could agree retaining a customs union wit the EU to secure a deal with Labour, the spokesman said: “You know the prime minister’s position with regard to the importance of being able to do trade deals.”

A customs union is an agreement that allows partaking countries to set common external tariffs, allowing goods to travel freely between those countries. The draft proposal between the U.K. and EU does not include a customs union as supporters of Brexit say it prevents the right to strike fresh trade deals.

Earlier this month, May agreed another new Brexit date with EU leaders. It delays the U.K.’s departure until October 31, 2019.

How India's economy went from weak to fastest growing in the world

Indian voters are deciding on their next prime minister and one key issue that could sway voters is how much Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done with the country’s economy.

India’s economy is the fastest growing large economy in the world. The United Nations expects India’s current population of 1.3 billion to keep growing and surpass China by 2024.

However, the country is facing a few obstacles.

A few years ago, Prime Minister Modi, promised to add 10 million jobs to help boost the economy.

That hasn’t really happened. The unemployment rate now sits at a 45-year high. And GDP per capita, which is a measure of wealth across a country, lags behind rivals like China by a wide margin.

Can India keep growing at such a fast pace? And if it does, at what cost?

Italy's deputy leader Di Maio says he won't change the country's economic path

Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister, Luigi Di Maio, has told CNBC that his country will not change course despite fears of ballooning debt and struggling growth.

Last week, Italy’s anti-austerity government cut its 2019 growth forecast to 0.2% from a previous forecast of 1%.

The country also raised its 2019 deficit to 2.4%, breaking a commitment given to the European Commission last year to stick to just over 2%. The government also predicted public debt would hit a fresh record high of 132.6% of gross domestic product (GDP).

After the announcement, the European Commissioner for Economic and Financial affairs, Pierre Moscovici, said “We could again have problems with Italy.”

Speaking to CNBC’s Dan Murphy in Dubai on Monday, Di Maio said he still had faith in his government’s plan to reject austerity measures preferred by lawmakers in Brussels.

“We are not going to change path.We are on this path for growth and we want to further improve Italian production compared to the the past,” he said.

The 32-year-old said Italy’s attempts to improve its economy had to be looked at in the context of the ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China as well as Britain’s drawn out exit from the European Union.

“When we forecasted 1% GDP growth, Germany forecasted to grow by 1.9%, now Germany is fighting to achieve 0.5% growth. So our targets are positive, compared to other European nations. We are not resigned to zero percent growth and we are passing a series of laws to boost growth in Italy,” he said.

The deputy prime minister added that while there had been some losses in value to Italian banks at the end of 2018, the volatility in markets had passed and he didn’t think there was a risk for Italian lenders at the moment.

“We are a country of savers, we have a lot of private savings and this is very important for our economy. So, in general, I don’t see any risk for the Italian banks, for the euro zone, and for Europe.”

Israeli voters head to the polls in one of the 'most unsavory' campaigns in country's history

Israeli election campaign one of the most unsavory in country’s history, academic says 5 Hours Ago | 02:04

Roughly 6.3 million Israelis are expected to cast their ballots today in an election that will have serious implications for the legacy of incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for Palestinians, and for Israel’s relationship with the rest of the Middle East.

Netanyahu faces his toughest challenge yet after months of being dogged by corruption and bribery allegations. His top competitor Benny Gantz, a former army general, who leads a center-left coalition. If Netanyahu wins — and polls are currently giving him a lead, though it remains close — the 69-year-old will become the longest-serving prime minister in the country’s history.

The 2019 election campaign was marked by scandals and mudslinging; Netanyahu’s Likud party, in one example, edited a TV interview of Gantz to frame him as mentally unstable, while Gantz has painted Netanyahu as a corrupt traitor who sold his country out for money. Likud also leaked that Iranian hackers had compromised Gantz’s cell phone and found incriminating information including that of an alleged mistress.

“No doubt this campaign was one of the most unsavory in Israeli history,” Yossi Mekelberg, professor of international relations at Regent’s University London told CNBC’s Squawk Box Europe on Tuesday. “The language, the attitude, the smearing campaign against rivals, this was not very pleasant to see.”

The government also claimed that Gantz was Iran’s favorite candidate, while calling him a left-winger who wouldn’t keep the country safe. Netanyahu’s critics have accused the prime minister of allying with far-right and borderline fascist players to win votes.

Chinese billionaire met with Australia's Peter Dutton: Report

China’s influence on Australian politics is again in focus after a media investigation revealed a secret meeting in 2016 between the then-immigration minister and a controversial Chinese billionaire seeking an Australian passport.

The report from Australia’s ABC Four Corners said Peter Dutton, now the home affairs minister, met one-on-one with Huang Xiangmo in a private area of a Chinese restaurant in Sydney. The meeting was set up after the Chinese businessman paid tens of thousands of dollars to a lobbyist, according to the investigation. That’s led to calls for Australia’s current government to look into the matter further.

Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, for one, told reporters on Tuesday that the allegation is “very troubling,” adding that “Peter Dutton has got a lot to explain about this.”

Turnbull also said Australia’s current prime minister will need to get involved in the situation: “The buck stops with him. I know what it is like to be prime minister and, ultimately, you are responsible and so Scott Morrison has to deal with this.”

Dutton has confirmed the meeting, but denied helping Huang with any immigration issues, according to SBS News.

Still, the Four Corners report is just the latest allegation of large political donors with apparent ties to China’s Communist Party wielding influence within Australian politics.

Back in February, Huang — who is currently in China following a decision to ban him from re-entering Australia — called on both the ruling Coalition and the opposition Labor Party to return over 2.7 million Australian dollars (about $1.9 million) in donations that he had made over the past five years.

In an interview with the Australian Financial Review, Huang called out his treatment as being hypocritical — and questioned the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation’s inference that his membership of groups that were promoting the “peaceful reunification” of China was tantamount to him being an operative of the Chinese state.

“If I am being penalized for promoting the peaceful reunification of China, this is against Australia’s own position as well as its fundamental principles of cultural diversity and freedom of speech,” Huang told the Australian Financial Review.

While Huang’s donations were a contributing factor in the Australian government’s decision to ban foreign political donations in November last year, Chinese-associated donations continue to raise concerns. In December, the New South Wales Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) raided the offices of the state’s Labor Party over A$100,000 in donations by Chinese-Australian nationals.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, ICAC is currently investigating a trio of individuals — including Huang — in relation to documents seized in the raid.

For more on the meeting, see the report from Australia’s ABC.
