US stock indexes finish slightly lower a day after record

Apr 24, 2019

U.S. stocks closed slightly lower Wednesday as the market gave back some of its gains a day after the S&P 500 and Nasdaq hit record highs. Energy stocks led the modest slide as crude oil prices fell after a three-day rally. Communications companies also helped pull the market lower, offsetting gains in real estate and other sectors. Bond prices rose as traders took a more defensive approach. Stocks wavered between small gains and losses through much of the day as investors continued to wade through a steady flow of corporate earnings. Analysts have been expecting a contraction in first-quarter corporate...

Business group: Nicaragua economy in 'free fall'

Apr 24, 2019

MANAGUA, Nicaragua — Nicaragua's leading business association says the country's economy is in "free fall" a year after anti-government protests were violently repressed by the government and its supporters. Guillermo Jacoby, an official of the Superior Council of Private Business, said Wednesday "we thought we were on the precipice, but the latest figures show that we lost our footing and are in free fall." Sectors such as tour operators, auto dealers and medical equipment providers have seen their sales off 77.5%, 75% and 53.5%, respectively in the past year. Protests began in April 2018 against cuts to the social security...

US gives exemptions to sanctions on Iran Revolutionary Guard

Apr 24, 2019

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration on Wednesday granted important exemptions to new sanctions on Iran's Revolutionary Guard, watering down the effects of the measures while also eliminating an aspect that would have complicated U.S. foreign policy efforts. Foreign governments and businesses that have dealings with the Revolutionary Guard and its affiliates will not be subject to a ban on U.S. travel under waivers outlined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in two notices published in the Federal Register. That weakens the effect of the measures and will frustrate members of Congress backing tough measures against Iran who are already concerned...

Rehab patients' unpaid work for big companies likely illegal

Apr 24, 2019

A nationally renowned drug rehab program in Texas and Louisiana has sent patients struggling with addiction to work for free for some of the biggest companies in America, likely in violation of federal labor law. The Cenikor Foundation has dispatched tens of thousands of patients to work without pay at more than 300 for-profit companies over the years. In the name of rehabilitation, patients have moved boxes in a sweltering warehouse for Walmart, built an oil platform for Shell and worked at an Exxon refinery along the Mississippi River. "It's like the closest thing to slavery," said Logan Tullier, a...

UK begins search for new Bank of England governor

Apr 24, 2019

LONDON — The British government on Wednesday started the process to appoint the successor to Mark Carney as governor of the Bank of England, and indicated it is willing to look abroad again to get the right person. Carney, a Canadian who in July 2013 became the first foreigner to head the Bank of England, is stepping down at the end of January 2020. Carney has already delayed his departure twice to deal with the aftermath of the country's 2016 vote to leave the European Union. The Treasury said his replacement should be announced in the autumn. Treasury chief Philip...
