Democrats clock all-nighter with climate talk
Bank of England's Carney, other policymakers speak in parliament
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic senators clocked an all-nighter, working in shifts into Tuesday morning to warn of the devastation from climate change and the danger of inaction.
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney and other top policymakers from the central bank are speaking in Britain's parliament. Below are highlights from their comments in a hearing of the Treasury Committee in the House of Commons. PAUL FISHER, BOE'S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FOR MARKETS (During discussion about how QE might be of interest to historians in future): SHOULD MPC KEEP RECORDINGS OF MPC MEETINGS? I think it would potentially change the nature of the debate away from where it is now." DAVID MILES, MEMBER OF BOE MONETARY POLICY COMMITTEE WAGE SETTLEMENTS "I think we're getting to the point at which average wage settlements are moving above the rate of inflation." GOVERNOR MARK CARNEY: WAGE GROWTH "In the absence of a pick-up in productivity growth, ultimately associated with investment, we are not going to see the uptick in real wages that will lead to a sustained period of above-trend growth." COULD UK ELECTIONS NEXT YEAR DELAY HIS DECISION TO ADJUST RATES UNTIL AFTER THE VOTE?
Front companies, embassies mask North Korean weapons trade - U.N
By James Pearson SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea has developed sophisticated ways to circumvent U.N. sanctions, including the suspected use of its embassies to facilitate an illegal trade in weapons, a United Nations report issued on Tuesday said. It said North Korea was also making use of more complicated financial countermeasures and techniques "pioneered by drug-trafficking organizations" that made tracking the isolated state's purchase of prohibited goods more difficult. The report, compiled by a panel of eight U.N. experts, is part of an annual accounting of North Korea's compliance with layers of U.N. sanctions imposed in response to Pyongyang's banned nuclear weapons and missile programs. "From the incidents analyzed in the period under review, the panel has found that (North Korea) makes increasing use of multiple and tiered circumvention techniques," a summary of the 127-page report said.
