India Snubs $1 Billion Amazon Investment as Resentment Grows
(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. India's government has scoffed at Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos' offer to invest $1 billion in the country, firing the latest salvo at an e-commerce giant that's been accused of predatory business practices.Trade minister Piyush Goyal delivered a stinging rebuke two days after Bezos arrived in New Delhi and touted his efforts to help digitize small and medium enterprises. The investment would bring Amazon's bet on the Indian market to about $6.5 billion. Goyal told a gathering of foreign ministers from around the world he welcomed an investigation into the company's alleged "predatory pricing and unfair trade practices.""They may have put in a billion dollars," Goyal said at the Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi on Thursday. "But then if they make a loss of a billion dollars every year, then they jolly well have to finance that billion dollars. So it's not as if they are doing a great favor to India when they invest a billion dollars."Bezos has attracted significant opposition during a tour of India intended to underscore its importance as a growth driver for Amazon. The country's antitrust regulator initiated a formal investigation hours before his arrival, and retailers affiliated with the Confederation of All India Traders organized sit-ins and public rallies in multiple cities to protest Amazon's traditional cut-price approach and exclusive-selling practices.Outside the venue of Amazon India's

Stocks close mostly lower as earnings season gets under way
U.S. stocks ended Tuesday's session mixed, with the Dow posting modest gains and setting a new intraday high, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq notched modest losses as investors parsed fourth-quarter results from several major financial firms as earnings season began in earnest. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 27 points, or 0.1% to end the day at around 28,935, the S&P 500 index lost about 5 points, or 0.2% to close at 3,283 and the Nasdaq Composite index retreated 23 points, or 0.2% to end at approximately 9,251. Stocks were boosted in early trade by better-than-expected earnings reports from Citigroup Inc. and Dow component JPMorgan Chase & Co. , with Citi's stock gaining 1.6% on the day and JP Morgan's adding 1.2%. Wells Fargo & Co. results disappointed, however, and the bank's shares fell 5.4% Tuesday. Investors were also eyeing developments in U.S.-China trade, with a phase-one deal set to be singed Wednesday. Stocks hit session lows after a report from Bloomberg News said that existing tariffs on Chinese imports would likely stay in place through the election, before mostly recovering those losses. In other company news, Delta Air Lines Inc. shares rose 3.3% after it reported better-than-expected earnings and Perrigo Co. Plc [PRGO] shares rose 12.6% to lead the S&P 500, after it raised its guidance for full-year 2019 sales.

Oil executives seek atonement at the Vatican


AMONG radical environmentalists, it has often been said that carbon trading and carbon offsets (which allow emitters of greenhouse gases to "redeem" their sins by countervailing actions) are comparable to the medieval practice of selling indulgences. In those days, believers were encouraged to improve their prospects in the after-life through a monetary transaction with the Church. Reaction against this practice helped to inspire the Protestant Reformation. 

The parallel is not perfect. Buying indulgences had few earthly consequences, besides making the Church richer. Whereas carbon markets, if they work as they are supposed to, could have the effect of helping to save the planet. In both cases, however, critics feel that moral integrity is compromised.



In any case, visitors converging on the Vatican today are unlikely to be given a free pass as easily as the fee-paying transgressors of the Middle Ages. Chief executives of leading oil companies are due to meet Pope Francis, whose green encyclical, "Laudato Si", calls for...Continue reading
