Upbeat Chinese economic outlook helps JSE to record levels

The JSE firmed on Friday, despite low trading volumes, as the rand gained on the dollar following a few global data releases.

The only blip during the week was Thursday, when the JSE ended a nine-session winning streak. Banks and insurance stocks were mixed despite the stronger rand, which extended its gains after a lower-than-expected US consumer inflation…

Trump’s Wrangling With Tehran Raises Alarm Bells for Multinationals in Iran

Western firms have piled into Iran in the two years since world powers agreed to lift sanctions. Now, as President Donald Trump deals a blow to that deal, executives must decide whether to stay the course.

He also vowed to cancel the deal himself if Congress and U.S. allies don’t act to…

Sex, Power, and the Systems That Enable Men Like Harvey Weinstein

Executive Summary When we hear accounts of film producer Harvey Weinstein’s sexually predatory behavior, it’s natural to want to punish him, to focus on the evil that resides in the few “bad apples.” But my research into the social psychology of power suggests that — without exculpating corrupt individuals — we need to take a hard look at the social systems that give rise to their actions. Power makes ordinary citizens behave like Weinstein, a phenomenon that might be called the banality of…

Great Western mainline: what does a £10bn rail upgrade buy you? | UK news

It has come years late, with bits missing and at double the price. But a landmark moment in one of rail’s most costly and controversial sagas, the Great Western mainline upgrade, may still give cause for appreciation this week, when an Inter City Express train carries passengers for the first time along an electrified section of the route. The train and, in particular, the electrified track, have had a long and painful genesis: interlinked projects costing billions more than originally…

Hammond slammed after apologising for calling EU ‘enemy’

Bungling Philip Hammond was branded a ‘laughing stock’ by Brexiteers tonight after he issued a grovelling apology for branding the EU ‘the enemy’. The Chancellor dialled up the rhetoric against the bloc this afternoon, jibing that the Tories should be united in taking on their real ‘opponents’ rather than turning their fire on each other. But in an embarrassing climbdown, he quickly took too Twitter to apologise for his choice of words. Mr Hammond wrote: ‘In an interview today I was…
