Since the trade war began in 2018 the damage done to the global economy has been surprisingly slight. America has grown healthily and the rest of the world has muddled along. But this week the picture darkened as the confrontation between America and China escalated, with more tariffs threatened and a bitter row erupting over China’s exchange rate. Investors fear the dispute will trigger a recession, and there are ominous signs in the markets—share prices fell and government-bond yields sank to near-record lows.https://www.economist.com/leaders/2019/08/08/dangerous-miscalculations?fsrc=scn/fb/te/bl/ed/dangerousmiscalculationsuschinatrade&fbclid=IwAR2kMxaQ29x3NwYBug6B1lUEjwRz7gO42DHeCqHun9_aXIKSlHf4Bgssi9w

How to handle co-worker who is always complaining
We all have at least one co-worker who constantly complains and never seems to have anything positive to say. Emotions are contagious and negative attitudes can spread quickly. That's bad news for workplace morale and productivity.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/08/09/success/negative-complaining-coworker/index.html?utm_term=link&utm_source=fbCNN&utm_content=2019-08-09T19%3A04%3A42&utm_medium=social&fbclid=IwAR1HY09y9V4vAW_UOoKZ86awKBQgDziJXZv-waLOMqGcqyq0crKauyIwdlY

DeVos's School Choice Program Enable Corruption...
Yesterday, the former education secretary of Puerto Rico, Julia Keleher, returned to the island to stand trial after being arrested by the FBI on July 10th on fraud charges. Specifically, she and a government official in the insurance sector have been charged with using their government positions and connections to misdirect federal funding and award bloated, fraudulent contracts to their personal connections (several of whom were also arrested on the 10th). Some see this as vindication for the Trump administration, which has cited potential misuse of funds as one of their reasons for repeatedly trying to hold back much-needed funds, most recently funding for food stamps. However, this alleged fraud actually has more to do with policies of reducing public school funding in favor of private and charter schools, a shift made popular by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. https://www.forbes.com/sites/christopherrim/2019/07/17/did-betsy-devoss-school-choice-program-enable-puerto-ricos-corruption-scandal/?utm_source=FACEBOOK&utm_medium=social&utm_term=Valerie%2F&fbclid=IwAR1XXTLBmfln5vXQnpGiwSSBeTl8Nc5EdAKJlxMNR1_zkPsHf_Oc-4VRo5c#2ca7d5295526
America has no law on paid leave for new parents
The president’s Commission on the Status of Women was unequivocal in its recommendation: “Paid maternity leave or comparable insurance benefits should be provided for women workers.” That conclusion was reached in 1963, when John Kennedy was president, but America still has no federal policy in place to guarantee working mothers or fathers paid time off to care for their new babies. It is one of only two countries in the world, along with Papua New Guinea, that have no statutory national policy of paid maternity leave. The average member of the oecd, a club of mostly rich countries, offers new mothers 18 weeks of paid leave.https://www.economist.com/united-states/2019/07/18/america-is-the-only-rich-country-without-a-law-on-paid-leave-for-new-parents?fsrc=scn/fb/te/bl/ed/americaistheonlyrichcountrywithoutalawonpaidleavefornewparentslookingafterbaby&fbclid=IwAR2AVTDDaUoUD5ODSVLQyitN1qi1I7VqJ8x3WV7dhCbNiNxBZKL0TM10a1c
