Linette Lopez, provided by Published 2:49 pm CST, Monday, January 28, 2019 Analysts at Barclays write that it's very unlikely China would be able to make good on its offer to eliminate its trade deficit with the US. Doing so would change China from a net creditor to a net debtor nation, and it lacks the financial assets to finance a current account deficit. Take China's offer to load up on US imports with a grain of salt. In a note to clients, Barclay's analysts Michael Gavin and Ajay Rajadhyaksha dismissed the idea that China could — over the next 6 years — make President Donald Trump's most resolute wish come true and eliminate its trade deficit with the US by 2024. Why? They explain that China's balance of payments can't actually sustain those purchases without the Chinese economy transforming from a net creditor to a net debtor. From the note: "Although China's record 2018 bilateral trade surplus with the US captured headlines and many … [Read more...] about There’s one huge, mathematical problem with China’s offer to go on a big US shopping spree

NEW YORK—New York Knicks player Enes Kanter urged U.S. President Donald Trump to be more vocal about human rights in Turkey, after prosecutors in Istanbul requested the basketball player's arrest and extradition over his ties to a U.S.-based cleric. The 26-year-old center has been an outspoken critic of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and his human rights record. He was indicted by a Turkish court last year on charges of belonging to an armed terrorist group, which he denies. Istanbul's state prosecutor has sought an Interpol "red notice" to detain the basketball player and requested his extradition, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office said on Thursday. Interpol declined to comment. Kanter describes himself as a close ally of U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, wanted in Turkey on suspicion of orchestrating a failed coup in 2016. Gulen denies the accusation. Kanter said he had been receiving death threats because of his views and had decided to skip his team's game … [Read more...] about NBA player Enes Kanter urges Trump to act on Turkey’s human rights record
