REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Wages for truckers and warehouse workers may need to rise to resolve shipping backups, the chairman of the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission, which oversees ocean transportation, said on Tuesday. “We do see more employment there which is a good thing, but I suspect compared to the demand, there’s not enough,” he said. “Think of it as sort of reducing your labor supply by having the same number of people there because you’re just not making use of their time. And it’s not currently paid, which means there’s very little economic incentive to fix that inefficiency,” she said.

Kaisa and its unit Kaisa Prosperity (2168.HK) said in separate exchange filings on Friday that trading in their shares was being suspended pending the release of "inside information". read moreKaisa's troubles come amid concerns about a broadening liquidity crisis in the Chinese property sector, with a string of offshore debt defaults, credit rating downgrades and sell-offs in the developers' shares and bonds in recent weeks. Kaisa has the most offshore debt coming due over the next year of any Chinese developer after embattled China Evergrande Group (3333.HK), which is reeling under more than $300 billion in liabilities. DEEPENING LOSSES1/4 A construction site by Chinese property developer Kaisa Group is seen at an area of downtown Shanghai, February 17, 2015. Shares of Evergrande, once China's largest property developer and whose debt woes have sparked a liquidity crisis across China's $5 trillion property sector, fell 2.5% to their lowest close since Sept. 21.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaSHENZHEN, China/HONG KONG, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Chinese property developer Kaisa Group Holdings Ltd (1638.HK) said on Thursday its finance unit had missed a payment on a wealth management product (WMP), adding to worries about a cash crunch at the debt-strapped company. GRADUAL REPAYMENTKaisa, in common with other heavily-indebted Chinese property developers and conglomerates, issues high-yielding WMPs to mostly mom-and-pop investors - a popular way of borrowing that sidesteps stringent government lending restrictions. Investor concerns about the broadening impact of the liquidity crunch sparked heavy selling of other Chinese developers' bonds in onshore markets on Thursday. Exchange-traded bonds of onshore units of developers Yuzhou Group (1628.HK) and Shimao Group (0813.HK) plunged more than 20%, triggering trading halts.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The head of a U.S. commission that oversees ocean transportation said in an interview on Tuesday he suspects some ocean carriers have improperly charged importers, one of many factors driving supply chain woes. Shipping containers are seen at the container terminal of the port of Oakland, California, U.S., October 28, 2021. In August, Maffei said the commission had launched an inquiry in response to reports here of ocean carriers improperly assessing fees. Noting one carrier charge was “value added”, Maffei said, “What do they mean by value added? The demand surge has caused unprecedented bottlenecks in the supply chain which economists and businesses expect to persist into 2022.

The FAA has been in discussion with the Federal Communications Commission about its air safety concerns over the plan to begin using some additional spectrum for 5G wireless networks starting Dec. 5. The FAA said equipment manufacturers should also continue their testing to determine the susceptibility of specific radio altimeters to 5G interference and should explore design changes that could mitigate the effects of interference. The aviation industry has voiced alarm about the plan to use C-Band spectrum for more than a year. Network carriers are expected to begin using the spectrum starting Dec. 5 starting in 46 markets. Wireless trade group CTIA said on Friday 5G networks can safely use C-band spectrum "without causing harmful interference to aviation equipment," and cited numerous active 5G networks using this spectrum band in 40 countries."

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. billionaires would pay tax on unrealized gains from their assets to help finance President Joe Biden’s emerging social-policy and climate-change legislation, according to a proposal unveiled on Wednesday by the top Senate Democrat for tax policy. The so-called billionaires tax, announced by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, is part of a two-pronged legislative strategy that also includes a proposed 15% corporate minimum tax on the most profitable U.S. corporations, which was unveiled on Tuesday. The White House backs the corporate minimum tax, which would dovetail with a global corporate minimum tax recently agreed by 136 countries and aimed at corporations that pay little or no tax by gaming the international tax system. But the billionaires tax faces potential opposition from Democrats in the House of Representatives, who favor straightforward hikes in tax rates for companies and the wealthy as a way to fund the Biden agenda. The billionaires tax, which would take effect for the 2022 tax year, would affect roughly 700 taxpayers with over $1 billion in assets or $100 million in annual income for three consecutive years, according to a statement.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Some U.S. Senate Democrats on Wednesday proposed taxing billionaires’ unrealized gains from their assets to help finance President Joe Biden’s social-policy and climate-change agenda, according to the top Senate Democrat for tax policy. The White House backs the corporate minimum tax, which would dovetail with a global corporate minimum tax recently agreed to by 136 countries here and aimed at corporations that pay little or no tax by gaming the international tax system. The corporate minimum tax would apply to a great many large American companies, such as Apple Inc, Amazon.com Inc, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Johnson & Johnson Inc. The billionaires tax faces potential opposition from Democrats in the House, who favor straightforward hikes in tax rates for companies and the wealthy as a way to fund the Biden agenda. Some experts say the billionaires’ tax could be difficult to enforce.

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Analysts at Europe’s biggest bank HSBC have turned bullish on Chinese stocks, arguing the worst of a regulatory storm has passed and that Beijing will provide policy support to arrest slowing growth. “We think the baby is being thrown out with the bathwater,” the HSBC analysts said in a report which had Herald van der Linde, head of Asia-Pacific equity strategy, as its lead author. “Yes, China is struggling with growth, and a stronger dollar is not good news for China’s stock markets. “As growth is slowing, we expect Beijing to introduce more targeted easing measures in the coming months,” said the HSBC analysts.

The House of Representatives Select Committee said last week it was "engaging" with Meadows and Patel. Under this process, the Select Committee must report on its efforts to force compliance by Bannon. Once the Select Committee adopts a contempt report, the question of whether to make a referral is put to the House for a vote. A lawsuit over whether the IRS must hand over Trump's tax returns to a House committee has still not produced a single ruling on the merits. Trump, in recent public statements, has also raised the possibility of suing to block the Select Committee subpoenas to his allies.

Under a 2015 deal, Iran curbed its uranium enrichment program, a possible pathway to nuclear arms, in return for the lifting of economic sanctions. Then-U.S. President Donald Trump quit the deal in 2018 and the Israeli government opposes U.S. efforts to revive it. "Obviously that is quite alarming," the official told reporters ahead of Hulata's talks with U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan. "But obviously if that doesn't work there are other avenues to pursue, and we are fully committed to ensuring that Iran never develops a nuclear weapon." The official said that Iran was "sending indications to a number of parties that they are preparing to come back to Vienna," where the United States and Iran held indirect talks earlier this year that stalled.

REUTERS/Carlos Barria/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) -The White House is pressing major U.S. airlines to mandate vaccines for employees by Dec. 8, four sources told Reuters on Friday. Some airline officials had asked the White House to push back the requirements, signed by President Joe Biden last month, until after the busy holiday travel season. Zients urged the airlines “to act sooner than later to ensure as smooth of an implementation process as possible,” one source said, and urged them to look at United Airlines vaccine requirement that was announced in August. The three airlines separately confirmed the calls took place but declined to discuss the specifics. The Biden administration notified carriers on Thursday it would seek a modification of those CRAF contracts to require vaccinations of airline employees.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) arrives for a national security briefing before members of the House of Representatives on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., March 10, 2020. "It is not to be used by foreign governments to spy on Americans or to violate the human rights of dissidents," he said. The bill passed through the House Intelligence Committee with bipartisan support on Thursday. The purpose of the provision is to discourage certain former spies from providing intelligence-focused security services to countries with poor human rights records, said congressional staffers familiar with the bill. It imposes a requirement that some former officials, who occupied particularly sensitive positions, report to the U.S. government their employment for foreign governments when providing "national security, intelligence, or internal security" services.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON, Sept 28 (Reuters) - A majority of Americans want more U.S. diplomatic engagement and a plurality want fewer U.S. troops stationed abroad, according to a survey taken as the chaotic U.S. evacuation of Afghanistan took place. The survey, reviewed by Reuters on Tuesday, was designed by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Eurasia Group Foundation and conducted Aug. 27-Sept. 1. It found that 58.3% believe the United States should engage more in negotiations on issues such as climate change, human rights and migration. The poll, which Reuters reviewed prior to its Wednesday release, found 32.2% believed the United States should either maintain or boost its troops abroad, while 25.5% had no opinion. The Eurasia Group Foundation, which designed the online survey carried out by SurveyMonkey, said it is legally separate from the Eurasia Group political risk consultancy.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaBEIJING, Sept 27 (Reuters) - China will reduce the number of abortions performed for "non-medical purposes", the country's cabinet said in new guidelines issued on Monday, that it said were aimed at improving women's reproductive health. The State Council said the new guidelines would aim to improve women's overall access to pre-pregnancy health care services. Think tanks and policy researchers have identified China's declining birth rate as a major social policy challenges in the coming decades. Although China remains the world's most populous nation, the latest census showed population growth from 2011 to 2020 was the slowest since the 1950s, and was expected to slow even more within a few years. After years of trying to limit population growth, Beijing is now promising new policies aimed at encouraging families to have more children.
