Yesterday it laid out proposals for the world’s largest multinational companies to pay levies to national governments based on their sales in each country, regardless of whether they have a physical presence in the country.

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said yesterday that he would like to see “a string” of months with strong jobs growth of about 1m for the US economy before considering tapering the central bank’s US$120bn a month of asset purchases. Speaking at the IMF and World Bank spring meetings, he said the Fed was still far from achieving “substantial further progress” towards its objectives of stable prices and full employment.
    On Wall Street overnight, US stocks hit record highs boosted by the tech sector after Jerome Powell reassured investors that the Fed is still a long way from tapering its asset purchase programme. The S&P 500 index closed at a new all-time high for the second day in a row rising 0.4% to 4,097.

    President Trump has dropped his opposition to Microsoft buying video sharing app Tik Tok.
