The message seems to be we want free trade, but on fair terms to America. In the past, America has been open with its market. The message is now that has not always served all segments of the American population well. So he will get tougher when it comes to striking trade deals and re- looking at them, and NAFTA is at the top of the list, of course.

NEW DELHI: Cement demand has slowed down post demonetisation and prices have slumped, which will get reflected in the December quarter earnings of cement companies. It is likely that some of the top cement stocks would take a hit following the penalty imposed by the Competition Commission of India, which has held seven cement companies guilty of rigging and cartelisation and imposed a total fine of nearly Rs 206 crore on them. But analysts say investors should use any dip of up to 5-10 per cent to accumulate quality cement stocks with a two-year kind of horizon. Demand took a knock in the December quarter, but it is on the cusp of a turnaround, experts said. This optimism is largely based on hopes of some sops in the forthcoming budget, they said. "A number of cement stocks have fallen significantly over the past two to three months, and a few of them have become attractive.

Abheek Barua (At ETMarkets.com, we have invited five biggies from the financial world to present their own budgets before the Union Budget is unveiled on Feb 1. Here is the first one, from the Chief Economist of HDFC Bank.) Start an income transfer programme First, I would introduce a large income transfer programme, say a top-up on all low balance Jan Dhan Accounts. There is some evidence that demonetisation has indeed hurt the most vulnerable income segments both directly through the lack of currency and indirectly through a fall in economic activity, job-losses etc. This programme of income support would help prop consumption up and also restore confidence in people with the simple yet powerful message that what the government promised to mop up as black money has been redistributed to them. Go easy on fiscal deficit; offer clarity on taxes Second, I would go a little easy on fiscal consolidation by keeping the fiscal Deficit-GDP ratio for 2017-18.

Shares of the United States' biggest companies have certainly reacted well to the promises. The Trump Rally has faded in recent days, but the benchmark Dow Jones industrial average is still up around 9% since Mr Trump won the election. Some of the top gainers have been the big Wall Street banks. They were hit by a huge amount of regulation since the 2008 financial crisis, known as the Dodd Frank Act. And as Samira Hussain reports, they are hoping its days are numbered.

He said the job makes him a better human being, but it's the most challenging to face. We have to build a team, a coaching staff and a club infrastructure in a season in which Chape will be in demand, Mancini told The Associated Press. I understand now that the city was so affected because the club and the city are run like a family, he added. The players we brought are cut from that cloth, but we have to reach a higher level now. After the crash, Colombian club Atletico Nacional, which was to face Chape in the Copa Sudamericana final in Medellin, awarded the victory to the small Brazilian team. That means that Chape qualified for South America's No. 1 tournament for the first time, the competitive Copa Libertadores. The team will also try to defend its title in the Santa Catarina state championship, try to stay up in Brazil's top-flight competition, and play in a pile of fundraisers, including one against Barcelona.

The official search for MH370 may have been called off but experts believe the missing airliner will one day be found, perhaps either by deep-sea miners or treasure hunters lured by a huge cash reward. After spending almost three years and US$150 million on a deep sea hunt for the Malaysian passenger jet in the remote Indian Ocean off western Australia, top aviation investigators have been forced to admit they have come up with nothing. More questions than answers have arisen since the Boeing...

Without a doubt, the global digital economy represents the strongest potential of untapped revenue in recent years. According to eMarketer , $1.915 trillion was earned throughout 2016 solely through eCommerce. That’s trillion, by the way; not million, not billion, almost two, freaking, trillion dollars. It isnt hard to understand why smart businesses have shifted their focus from traditional forms of marketing to capitalize on this massive global opportunity. Truthfully, going into 2017 with just a website isnt going to cut it anymore. Innovative marketing techniques have outstripped traditional methods tenfold, and to compete in the digital world, a business needs to implement multiple strategies just to make a mark. The best advice is to focus on some of the top marketing trends of 2017, so your business can establish itself before it becomes too crowded.

It started in waves, but to many inside the White House , it felt like a flood. For weeks, inboxes have been inundated with goodbyes, thank yous, and new email addresses. Toasts were raised nightly at nearby watering holes, and teary sendoffs were made across the 18-acre complex. The first aides to President Obama began departing shortly after the New Year, with steady numbers departing each day. As the hours waned on the Obama Administration, all but a few handfuls of aides left the White House for the last time Thursday, making space for their successors in the incoming Trump Administration. On Thursday morning, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest treated his remaining staff for breakfast in the White House Mess, where the staff printed out a commemorative menu thanking the outgoing Administration for their service. By the end of the day, Earnest was off the clock .

SYDNEY: The official search for MH370 may have been called off but experts believe the missing airliner will one day be found, perhaps either by deep-sea miners or treasure hunters lured by a huge cash reward. After spending almost three years and US$150 million on a deep sea hunt for the Malaysian passenger jet in the remote Indian Ocean off western Australia, top aviation investigators have been forced to admit they have come up with nothing. More questions than answers have arisen since the Boeing 777 vanished and relatives of the 239 dead fear that China and Malaysia are admitting defeat in the face of one of the world's most enduring aviation mysteries. The only physical evidence has been debris recovered on western Indian Ocean shorelines and the discoveries, far from the official search, have prompted next-of-kin to embark on their own inquiries in Madagascar.

We are going to do things that have not been done for our country for many, many decades. It is going to change. Although there are many jobs still to be filled in the new administration, and much controversy over Mr Trump's picks for the top posts, his team have made it plain they intend to begin wiping out Barack Obama's legacy from day one in the White House, with a string of executive orders from the new president.
