Britain starts search for 'highest caliber' Bank of England governor

Britain’s finance minister Philip Hammond began the search for a new governor of the Bank of England on Wednesday, seeking someone to help steer the world’s fifth-biggest economy, and its global financial center, through the upheaval of Brexit.

Mark Carney, a Canadian, twice extended his term in charge of the British central bank as the country heads for an exit from the European Union. But he has ruled out a further delay even though Brexit remains up in the air.

“We are looking, obviously, for a candidate of the highest caliber. As we leave the European Union it’s very important that the UK continues to play an important role in global fora,” Hammond told a parliamentary committee.

He said he hoped to make an appointment in October, with the new governor starting in February 2020. He said his preference was to hire someone for an eight-year term, although he would consider deviating from this for an exceptional candidate.

Carney took up his role on July 1, 2013, and will step down on Jan. 31, 2020.

Hammond thanked Carney for helping to lead the U.K. economy through “a challenging period and we are now seeing stable, low inflation and the fastest wage growth in over a decade”.

Hammond said earlier this month he hoped that concerns about Brexit would not deter potential applicants for a role with an annual salary of £480,000 ($620,000).

“We know from the experience of the previous crisis that it is through cooperation between central banks that we ensure stability … therefore it’s very important that as well as having someone who can do a first-class job at home, we have someone who commands respect in the international arena,” Hammond said on Wednesday.

The recruitment process has been designed to ensure that the most qualified candidate is appointed from the broadest possible pool of applicants, the finance ministry said.

Potential candidates include former BOE deputy governor Andrew Bailey who is now chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority, a markets regulator, and current top officials at the BOE including deputy governor Ben Broadbent and chief economist Andy Haldane.

Raghuram Rajan, who was governor of the Reserve Bank of India from 2013 to 2016, and chief economist at the International Monetary Fund between 2003 and 2006, declined to comment when he was asked this month whether he would consider a return to active policymaking.

The Treasury has appointed a recruitment firm, Sapphire Partners, to help in the search – the first time it has sought external help to find a BOE governor.

A Treasury official said the appointment of recruiters would help ensure the widest pool of candidates for the job. The Treasury was aiming to conduct interviews for the job over the summer.

Uber is way more complicated than Lyft, and investors shouldn’t value them the same way

Uber is way more complicated than Lyft, and investors shouldn't value them the same way

While Uber and Lyft, the top two ride-hailing services in the US, may comprise a duopoly the companies shouldn’t be valued the same way.

Uber is known as a ride-hailing business and so is Lyft. Both companies offer ride-sharing, carpooling, bike and scooter rentals for short trips on-demand. But the comparisons should probably stop there.

In its S-1 filing, Uber reveals that it is already generating significant revenue from business units that it grouped into three broad categories: Personal Mobility, Uber Eats and Uber Freight. It’s also operating in 63 countries and more than 700 cities while Lyft remains focused on transportation only, in just the US and Canada.

Even within the “personal mobility” category, Uber’s business is significantly more complex than Lyft’s.

Economist Jim O'Neill says his fears over China are at a 30-year high

The renowned economist who coined the acronym BRICS told CNBC that he’s started to worry about some parts of the Chinese economy after several decades of stellar growth.

Speaking at the Ambrosetti Workshop on the shores of Lake Como, near Milan, Jim O’Neill said that China has become an integral part of the global economy, and any slump would have the potential to drag other major economies lower.

“I have to say, for the past year, for the first time in 30 years I have been a bit more troubled about some aspects of China’s path than I have been before,” the former Goldman Sachs Asset Management chairman told CNBC’s Steve Sedgwick on Thursday.

The world’s second-largest economy grew 6.6 percent in 2018 — the slowest pace since 1990. Recent consumer data has also spooked market watchers. Retail sales growth in 2018 declined to 6.9 percent year-on-year, from a 9.1 percent increase the year before. There’s also been plummeting auto sales, fears over household debt, and firms like Apple warning about falling demand in the country of 1.4 billion.

Brexit deadlocked again: British parliament fails to find an alternative

A proposal for a confirmatory referendum on any deal got the most votes, but was defeated by 292-280. “The only option is to find a way through which allows the UK to leave with a deal,” Barclay told parliament. “If the house were to agree a deal this week, it would still be possible to avoid holding European parliamentary elections,” Barclay said.

Brexit deadlocked again: British parliament fails to find an alternative

Pound drops vs. dollar as no Brexit option gets enough support 15 Hours Ago | 02:03

The option that came closest to getting a majority was a proposal to keep Britain in a customs union with the EU, which was defeated by three votes.

A proposal for a confirmatory referendum on any deal got the most votes, but was defeated by 292-280.

Brexit minister Steven Barclay said after the results were announced that the default position was still that Britain would leave the EU on April 12 without a deal, the nightmare scenario for many international businesses.

“The only option is to find a way through which allows the UK to leave with a deal,” Barclay told parliament.

He hinted that May could put her deal to a fourth vote this week in the hope of securing an orderly exit before European elections are held from May 23 onwards.

“If the house were to agree a deal this week, it would still be possible to avoid holding European parliamentary elections,” Barclay said.

Sterling fell almost 1 percent to $1.3048, after the vote results were read out by the speaker, John Bercow, to stand around 0.5 percent lower on the day.

Last Friday, the third defeat of May’s own withdrawal agreement left one of the weakest British leaders in a generation facing a spiralling crisis over Brexit.

Her government and her Conservative Party, which has been trying to contain a schism over Europe for 30 years, are now riven between those who are demanding that May pilot a decisive break with the bloc and those demanding that she rule out such an outcome.

If May were to throw her weight behind either camp, she would risk tearing her party apart and bringing down the government. Some Conservative lawmakers have warned they will support a motion of no confidence if she accepts calls for a Brexit that maintains many of the existing close economic ties with the EU.

Britain had been due to leave the EU on March 29 but the political deadlock in London forced May to ask the bloc for a delay. As things stand, Britain will now depart at 6:00 pm EST on April 12 – unless May comes up with another viable option.

WATCH: The EU has run out of patience with May

It will take China more than 10 years to compete with Boeing, Airbus, says CEO of Dassault Systemes

It will take China more than a decade to create a globally competitive, homegrown airplane maker that can go head-to-head with the likes of Boeing and Airbus, according to an industry veteran.

It will take China more than a decade to create a globally competitive, homegrown airplane maker that can go head-to-head with the likes of Boeing and Airbus, according to an industry veteran.

Aerospace is a complex industry and it takes time, even for well-established companies, to accumulate knowledge and know-hows to build reliable commercial aircraft, Bernard Charles, vice chairman and CEO of Dassault Systemes, said Thursday.

“I think it will take China one or two generations of airplanes to have a truly worldwide competitive product but it’s a logical evolution, provided the market size of the country,” he told CNBC’s Martin Soong at the Boao Forum in China.

Dassault Systemes sells software to plane makers that help them digitalize their businesses. The idea is that by embracing more technology into daily operations, those manufacturers can bring down the cost of the jets, use resources more efficiently and ramp up production to meet demand.

UK unemployment lowest since 1975 as employers ramp up hiring

British employers ramped up their hiring at the fastest pace in more than three years in the three months to January as the country’s labour market defied the broader weakness in the overall economy as Brexit approached.

The number of people in work surged by 222,000, helping to push down the unemployment rate to 3.9 percent, its lowest since the start of 1975, official data showed.

A Reuters poll of economists had pointed to a rise in employment of 120,000.

With the terms of Britain’s exit from the European Union still unclear, many businesses have cut long-term investment in equipment, potentially making them more likely to hire workers who can be sacked if the economy sours.

The strength of the labour market is pushing up wages more quickly.

Total earnings, including bonuses, rose by an annual 3.4 percent in the three months to January, the Office for National Statistics said, stronger than a median forecast of 3.2 percent in the Reuters poll.

Wage growth for the three months to December was revised up slightly to 3.5 percent, its highest since mid-2008.

Average weekly earnings, excluding bonuses, also rose by 3.4 percent on the year, in line with the Reuters poll.

Some in GOP buck Trump, counter Green New Deal with climate plans

But ever since the New York Democrat began promoting the idea late last year, a growing number of House GOP lawmakers have been increasingly willing to say those four little words: “Climate change is real.” “This is an extremely important subject,” Carter said during a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on the Environment and Climate Change hearing on February 6, adding that climate change “is real” and is “something that we have to address.” That’s why we back sensible, realistic, and effec

Some in GOP buck Trump, counter Green New Deal with climate plans

Republicans have trashed the Green New Deal — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and create a renewable energy economy — as unrealistic, unaffordable and ill-conceived.

But ever since the New York Democrat began promoting the idea late last year, a growing number of House GOP lawmakers have been increasingly willing to say those four little words: “Climate change is real.” And they’re warning the rest of their party that Republicans must push for alternative solutions before it’s too late.

Reps. John Shimkus (R-Illinois), the ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce’s Environment and Climate Change subcommittee, Billy Long (R-Missouri), Bill Flores (R-Texas), Buddy Carter (R-Georgia) and Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), among others, made their views plain during a pair of hearings on the topic in early February.

“This is an extremely important subject,” Carter said during a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on the Environment and Climate Change hearing on February 6, adding that climate change “is real” and is “something that we have to address.”

It’s possible to make a living and make a difference

How sustainable investing allows investing with conscience

Shimkus, along with Rep. Greg Walden (R-Oregon), the ranking member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, and Fred Upton (R-Michigan), the ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce’s Energy subcommittee, argued in a Feb. 13 opinion article that the Green New Deal would have “potentially devastating consequences on our national debt and on our economy.”

“Americans deserve better. That’s why we back sensible, realistic, and effective policies to tackle climate change,” they wrote.

It’s a position that contradicts President Donald Trump, who continues to doubt the veracity of climate science — so much so that his administration plans to name a group of selected scientists to reassess it’s earlier dire analysis of climate change. According to The Washington Post, the group of scientists would include those who question just how severe climate change really is and the extent to which humans contribute to it. According to Bloomberg, the Trump administration will seek drastic cuts to the Department of Energy’s renewable energy budget as part of the president’s fiscal year 2020 budget request, set to be released Monday.

But polling shows the Republican Party’s aversion to acknowledging climate change is increasingly falling out of favor. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on March 4 showed that 63 percent of adults felt that the GOP’s positions on climate change were outside the mainstream, compared to 54 percent who said so when asked in October 2015. On fiscal issues, immigration and abortion — three other issues that adults were asked about in both the polls — the difference between 2015 and 2019 was negligible or nonexistent.

FDA approves Johnson & Johnson’s ketamine-like nasal spray for depression

FDA approves Johnson & Johnson's ketamine-like nasal spray for depression

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday said it approved Johnson & Johnson’s nasal spray antidepressant that is chemically similar to often-abused ketamine, marking the first advance in treating depression in more than 30 years.

The treatment comes with a boxed warning — FDA’s harshest — flagging the risk for sedation and difficulty with attention, judgment and thinking, abuse and misuse, and suicidal thoughts after administration of the drug.

Spravato nasal spray will be used along with a newly prescribed oral antidepressant, under supervision of health care professionals, the agency said.

Citing the risk of serious adverse outcomes and the potential for abuse and misuse, the FDA said the drug will be available through a restricted distribution system.

Spravato is a chemical mirror image of anesthetic ketamine, which is abused as a recreational party drug that goes by the street name Special K.

The decision comes after an FDA advisory panel recommended approval of the drug, Spravato, which is designed to treat depression in patients who have not benefited from two or more antidepressants.

“There has been a long-standing need for additional effective treatments for treatment-resistant depression, a serious and life-threatening condition,” said Tiffany Farchione of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.

Spravato has been touted as an asset with blockbuster potential and is expected to improve investor sentiment toward the growth prospects of J&J’s pharma unit Janssen, as its top-selling rheumatoid arthritis drug Remicade faces increased competition from cheaper biosimilars.

The drug is also being tested in patients with depression who are at a high risk of committing suicide.

Mondelez International, the company behind sweet brands like Cadbury, Oreo, Milka and Green & Blacks, is looking for four people to join its chocolate-tasting team.

The best part about this dream job? No experience is required.

The company will train its tasters, meaning no formal qualifications are needed. All they ask is that you have a “passion for confectionery,” “tastebuds for detection,” give honest opinions and be eager to try new products.

Sounds simple enough, until you get to the “choco-challenges.” As part of the selection process, applicants will be tested on their ability to detect subtle taste differences between chocolate products. So if you’re the person who thinks they can taste when there’s an extra pinch of sugar in this milk chocolate vs. that one, this may be your new calling.

Sounds simple enough, until you get to the “choco-challenges.” As part of the selection process, applicants will be tested on their ability to detect subtle taste differences between chocolate products. So if you’re the person who thinks they can taste when there’s an extra pinch of sugar in this milk chocolate vs. that one, this may be your new calling.
