See all posts by Manika Premsingh Image source: Getty Images Brexit, the US-China trade war, and the US elections are big political and policy decisions that will impact investors in 2021. Both Brexit and the US-China trade war have been with us for some time. In fact, their impact on financial markets and the FTSE 100 index is already visible. But their effect can reach a conclusive point in 2021. The US elections, of course, are the biggest regular politial event for global stock markets, whose impact we’ll start to see next month onwards.Brexit impactFirst, let’s explore the Brexit impact. There’s no way of knowing whether a Brexit deal will go through or not. Even if a deal is signed, there is likely to be an adjustment period for the UK, which could keep economic growth muted. This is especially true after the pandemic, which has weakened the economy severely.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I think the best investing decision, keeping Brexit in mind, is to buy either defensives or geographically diversified stocks. They are least likely to be impacted by any potential Brexit blow. One FTSE 100 defensive is the consumer goods giant, Unilever. A stock with international exposure is the luxury brand and retailer Burberry. Read more about the investment case for both in my recent article. US-China trade warNext, the US-China trade war is about to reach an inflection point too. While the present US government is at loggerheads with the Chinese, the future depends on who wins the US elections next month. According to the BBC, there’s a higher chance that Biden will win. This could change over the coming weeks, but for now, let’s assume a Democrat sweep will happen. After confontrational relations between the two countries in recent years, some cooling off in the US-China tensions is likely. But, multiple news analyses I’ve read lead me to believe that relations between the two could remain stressed nevertheless. The US and China are the two biggest country economies in the world today. As long as their cooperation is strained, resulting in less trade, economic performance will be directly impacted. In a globalised world, this will have ripple effects elsewhere too. I think FTSE 100 stocks with their own momentum should be considered to beat a potentially sluggish global economy. Stocks related to clean energy, like the FTSE 100 speciality chemical supplier Johnson Matthey is an example of this. I wrote about it in some detail a few days ago, for the interested (Forget Tesla! These are the FTSE 100 shares I’d buy to get in on the growing electric vehicle trend).US electionsMore generally, though, a Biden win is expected to be a positive for the US economy. Noted economist Nouriel Roubini recently wrote in The Guardian that there’s a positive correlation between Democrat governments and faster economic growth. For FTSE 100 investors, companies with significant US business will benefit from this. One example is the construction biggie CRH, whose share price has corrected recently giving investors an opportunity to buy. In sum, there are plenty of FTSE 100 plays irrespective of how policies impact stock markets in 2021. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Brexit, US-China trade war, and US elections: 3 big things that will impact the FTSE 100.

30 Minutes with… Ireland scrum-half Conor MurrayWhat’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?Playing for the Lions against the Rebels, I got up from the bottom of a ruck and heard a team-mate yelling to kick it out, so I booted it straight across the ruck, not looking for distance, and started jogging off thinking it was half-time, but the ref blew for the lineout. I turned around and Zeebs (Simon Zebo) was just laughing at me. He got fined for it later!Who are the jokers in the Ireland squad?Seany (O’Brien) and Luke Fitz are the main men. They keep us entertained. Seany is MC on long bus journeys and tells a few jokes and funny stories.What about practical jokes?Peter O’Mahony and Zeebs are probably up there. When my laundry comes back they rip it open, so when I come to collect it, it’s all over the floor. They think I don’t know it’s them, but I’m planning to get them back.Face of fury? Peter O’Mahony is “very intense and angry” according to Murray. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat did you get up to off the field at the World Cup?We’re together for a long time, so it’s important to do fun things. On one day off, we got to go to Alton Towers and we went clay pigeon shooting.It was supposed to be fun but got competitive very quickly! Peter O’Mahony is a bit of a sharpshooter – he’s into his hunting – so he came first. Paul O’Connell got a lot of help from the guy taking us round so he came a surprise second.What annoys you?Messy people. I’m quite tidy so I find it irritating when I’m in camp and have a room-mate who’s messy. Keith Earls is quite messy, but I whipped him into shape during the 2011 World Cup!If you could be any of your team-mates, who would it be? Scrum-half Conor Murray gives an insight into life inside the Ireland camp Just to be respected by other players. You try to impress people and fans, but being respected by your own team-mates is No 1 on my list.This article appeared in the November 2015 edition of Rugby World.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Green machine: Conor Murray in action against France during RWC 2015. Photo: Getty Images I’ll go with Peter O’Mahony. He’s quite a crazy individual; he’s very intense and angry, so I’d love to see the world from his point of view, to be that angry. Just for a day, though.Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?Paul O’Connell, because you wouldn’t be stuck in the lift for long! He’d find a way to get out by busting the roof off or pulling the doors open.What’s your guilty pleasure?Crisps. I love crisps, and dips. That’s what I’ll be eating when I finish rugby.Snack attack: Murray likes to indulge in a packet of crisps. Photo: Getty ImagesIf you could have one superpower, what would it be?To predict the future. In games it would be useful and in a lot of other things. You’d know what to do to change the future.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?Just to be successful. I don’t know what I want to do yet, but I love food, so maybe I’ll open a restaurant. I could set one up close to a port to get fresh seafood all the time.How would you like to be remembered?

Symptom of capitalist decayAug. 25 — If anything dramatically shows the irrationality of the capitalist economic system, it is a financial market crash. This happens after a period of euphoria in the markets has driven prices to all-time highs and huge sums of money have been changing hands — in these days, usually electronically.Then comes the day of reckoning. What had seemed solid wealth the day before suddenly turns into red ink. This is what began happening in the third week of August to markets around the world.At such times, only those with deep pockets can stay in the “game” and hold on to their investments, hoping for a renewed surge upward. If the billionaires are able to buy when prices have plunged and others are bankrupt, they stand to make a real “killing” on the market — if it goes back up at some point.By Monday, Aug. 24, some estimates put the losses worldwide at a total of $10 trillion. That’s a thousand, times another thousand, times another thousand, times a thousand again, times 10. $10,000,000,000,000 — just to put things in perspective.How can $10 trillion of wealth be “lost”? Or did it ever really exist?Presumably, this $10 trillion figure vaguely represents the value of real commodities — coal, steel, vehicles, food, shelter, aircraft carriers, gasoline — that would have been produced for sale at some future time, if the process of capitalist production and accumulation had continued on an upward course.That so much can be “lost” so quickly shows the precarious nature of capitalism. It illustrates in the starkest way how the profit system runs counter to any rational planning of human economic activity in this high-tech era — when the gulf between rich and poor, between social classes and between whole countries, only widens even as productivity leaps ahead.As this is being written, the media and many economic pundits are trying to talk up the market, emphasizing its partial rebound from record lows just yesterday. No one in the media wants to predict gloom and doom, knowing they could be held responsible for causing a panic and another plunge downward.The blame gameAnyway, the blame gamers have already picked their target. Almost all the propaganda organs of the imperialist ruling classes have fingered who is responsible: China. China’s stock market, after a big rise in prices based on hopes of future economic expansion equal to its phenomenal growth of the last decade, took a dive starting in the middle of June, according to the Shanghai Composite Index.There was general agreement then that Chinese stocks, especially in real estate, were overpriced, and the decline was considered a “correction.” But now the U.S. financial writers are beginning to describe the continued fall of Chinese stocks as a “plague” that has somehow infected Western markets. The assumption here is that the underlying economic conditions in the Western imperialist countries were healthy before this Chinese pathogen infiltrated markets across the globe.Give us a break.What’s healthy about workers’ wages in the U.S. buying less today than they did in 1967? What’s healthy about the economy of a country where a cop can arrest and kill a Black man for the survival “crime” of selling single cigarettes on the street? As happened to Eric Garner in Staten Island, N.Y. What’s healthy about a parent having to work two part-time, low-wage jobs just to feed her kids?And speaking of wages, let’s not average in those chosen few corporate executives who manage the criminal acts of this dog-eat-dog system and get ever so nicely rewarded with “salaries” in the millions.Stocks crash, rise and crash againCapitalist stock market crashes are nothing new. China was an impoverished, semi-feudal, landlord-ridden country when the first big market collapses began jerking people around in Europe and the U.S. in the 19th century. China was still in that condition when the 1929 global market crash happened in the West, leading to a decade of extreme poverty for the workers — the Great Depression.Since then there have been market crashes every seven or eight years. Some investors have gained, more have lost. But an interesting thing happened with the 2008-09 crash. There has never been a real capitalist “recovery” since then.Unemployment has remained high, even in the developed capitalist countries — especially in Europe, but also in the U.S. Millions of workers here have just given up on finding a job, and millions more are still trying to get into the job market for the first time.Workers are overburdened with debt that becomes increasingly unpayable. Home mortgages, car mortgages, credit card debt, student loans — they are now seen as the next bubbles to burst.When the super-rich do relax their tight grip on their money and invest in production, it is likely a super-automated plant that costs billions and will employ at most a few hundred workers.This is what capitalism has brought us to, and there is no easy way out.Tear the system down!All the glorious expectations created by the enormous scientific and technological breakthroughs of the last century and a half boil down to this: The rich have gotten unspeakably richer, the poor are getting poorer while being beaten down by cops and wars, and the environment, the planet we live on, is being wrecked by an economic system based on greed and exploitation.That is not China’s fault. Hopefully, the lessons of this market collapse will spur on those in China who want to reorient their development plans away from using the capitalist market to stimulate the economy. It is a stimulant that can become a depressant only too quickly. And it also breaks down the solidarity of the masses — which made China’s transformation possible in the first place.China didn’t cause this crisis. On the contrary, it was the success of China’s amazingly rapid development over the last few decades that kept the capitalist economies in the rest of the world afloat. They flocked to China to exploit cheap labor and stayed because of the rapidly expanding modern infrastructure and the availability of millions of educated, skilled young workers. But those things came from China’s ability to plan its development — the product of its socialist revolution.Now it looks like the temporary boost that China’s growth gave to Western capitalism after the crash of 2008 wasn’t enough to keep this system going. All the laws of social development say that it is time to organize and fight here for a thorough overturn of the system — from the bottom up.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

While held, he sent an open letter to UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon to draw attention to his arrest.According to the pro-reformist website Kalameh, Chari Mohammad Moradof, a citizen of Turkmenistan held for the past 26 months in Tehran’s Evin prison, has been sentenced to 21 years in prison on charges of spying and anti-government propaganda.

News UpdatesInclusion Of ‘Sale Of Books’ As Essential Service During COVID: Plea Moved Before The Bombay High Court Sparsh Upadhyay27 April 2021 2:08 AMShare This – xA Plea has been moved before the Bombay High Court seeking inclusion of ‘sale of books’ as an essential service under the Essential Services Maintenance Act, 1968. The Plea has been moved by ‘Marathi Prakashak Parishad’, which is an association of Marathi publishers, though Advocates Asim Sarode, Purva Bora & Ajinkya Udane and it has impleaded Union of India and State of Maharashtra as respondent parties. Underscoring that the lockdown was adversely affecting Marathi and other languages book publishing industries, the plea submits that ‘Books’ are not in the list of essential service even when the books are an integral part of exercising Right to Education hence distributing and selling books becomes an important educational service. Importantly, the plea states, “During Corona Virus lockdown some petitions were filed and entertained by the Courts, demanding availability of alcohol during lockdown period and on this background many socially motivated citizens and the Petitioner wondered why such a petition is not filed on demanding to make books available during the lockdown.” The plea has averred that the process of reading books reduces stress and takes our mind off from problems for at least a little while and that books provide food for thoughts. “As we consider ‘food’ is an essential element, it is time to consider books which provides ‘food for thoughts’ also as essential service,” adds the plea. The Petition had clarified that it was being filed in the backdrop COVID and the lockdown, and thus, the Petitioners thus requests the Court to consider the demand of declaring selling books as an essential service for all times because without books exercising Right to Life and freedom of expression which includes quality of life will be meaningless. Lockdown like situations increases mental health issues and excessive screen time just worsen it more. In such times of crisis, people need something which will keep them going and positive so they can survive through all. Prayers of the plea Books may be declared as an integral part to exercise the right to life with human dignity and freedom of expression.Central Government may be directed to add sale of ‘books’ as an essential service in the section 2(1) (a) (ix) of the Essential Services Maintenance Act, 1968.The state of Maharashtra may be directed to see if some decision can be taken in the same manner as the Kerala Government did regarding recognizing Books as essential and selling books as an essential service.TagsSale of Books Essential Services Bombay High Court Inclusion Of Next Story
