Austria’s Pistol-Packing, Immigrant Bashing Donald Trump Loses

Austia's far right candidate losesAustria narrowly averted what would have been one of the most dangerous electoral decisions since World War II by not choosing far-right presidential candidate Norbert Hofer. Instead, Green party candidate Alexander van der Bellen won the presidency by a razor-thin margin of 50.1 percent to Hofer’s 49.9 percent, and only after absentee postal votes were tallied on Monday.

More than 90,000 people—roughly one percent of Austria’s population—claimed political asylum in the country last year.

Donald Trump’s Week of Playing with Financial Fire

TrumpMaybe, if he hasn’t already seen it, Donald Trump should get himself tickets to the Broadway smash “Hamilton.” Because he may want to understand a little bit about Alexander Hamilton's playbook. One message that Hamilton, the nation’s first Treasury secretary, was clear about was this: Never do or say anything that might call your country’s credit into question; it will only cost you a lot more the next time you try to borrow. Careless talk by itself can badly damage an economy.

That is why as I have seen up close in sensitive economic times—from the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s to the debt-limit showdown to our own financial crisis—U.S. presidents and top economic officials weigh every word on sensitive issues that could affect financial markets with great care and precision.

Beyonce clothing rangeBeyoncé’s new range of women’s sportswear is made using sweat shop labourers who earn as little as £4.30 a day, it has been reported.

The American pop star’s Ivy Park gym gear is sold by Top Shop, the high street fashion retailer owned by Sir Philip Green, who is already facing criticism over the collapse of department store BHS.

The Sun on Sunday reported the clothing range – which Beyoncé said she hopes will “support and inspire women” – is made by Sri Lankan seamstresses some of whom earn £4.30 a day.
