How housing has divided the young

Over the past 25 years only a small group of young adults have been able to get on to the property ladder – and this has been getting smaller.To get more housing news, you can visit shine news official website.
A result of rapidly rising house prices, this trend has led to concerns that younger generations will never be as wealthy as their parents.
Home ownership among the young has fallen across all income groups.
Indeed, among the top fifth – those with a family income of £41,000 a year after tax – the proportion of those aged 25 to 34 who own a home has fallen from 85% 20 years ago to 65% now.
This is the same proportion as that for middle-income earners – those who would now have a family income of £22,200 to £30,600 after tax – 20 years ago.
The decline among this middle-income group has been even greater, with just 27% now homeowners.
And the proportion drops to just 8% among those on less than £15,080, who make up the bottom fifth in terms of income.In other words, rising house prices have seen home ownership become increasingly the preserve of not just older generations but also the better-off among the young.
About 40% of young homeowners have household incomes in the top fifth of their age-group – up from 30% in the mid-1990s.
Falling behind
What has happened to explain such a huge change in a relatively short period of time?
The main reason is that house prices rose rapidly during much of the 1990s and 2000s.Accounting for inflation, house prices have risen by almost 160% since the mid-1990s while young people’s incomes have grown by only 23%. This means that fewer and fewer can afford to get on the housing ladder.
This gulf can essentially explain all of the fall in the home ownership rate over the past 20 years, analysis by the Institute for Fiscal Studies suggests.
A country divided
Of course, there are a wide variety of experiences within any generation and these housing trends have not affected all young people equally.
Over the past 20 years, these large falls in home ownership have been seen among young people across the country.
But some places have fared much better than others.
The biggest falls in home ownership have been in south-east England, where house prices rose especially steeply.
Twenty years ago, 64% of 25- to 34-year-olds in this area owned a home, a figure that has now halved, to just 32%.


China to put 25% tariffs on $16 billion worth of US products

    The Chinese government said in a statement Wednesday that the taxes would be imposed on August 23.  The US products in line for tariffs include chemical items and diesel fuel.To get more China news, you can visit shine news official website.
The world's top two economies have repeatedly sparred over trade in recent months, in what experts warn may become a devastating cycle of retaliation. Related: The US-China trade war is about to get real On Tuesday, the Trump administration unveiled its own list of roughly $16 billion worth of imports from China that will be hit with 25% tariffs. The latest US tariffs on 279 products, including motorcycles, speedometers and antennas, will also take effect August 23.
 The Trump administration has accused China of unfair trade practices, and President Donald Trump has long vowed to bring down the United States' trade deficit in goods with Beijing.  In July, the administration imposed 25% tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese imports.
 Beijing, accusing the United States of trade bullying, has retaliated by imposing tariffs on an equal measure of American goods. The United States and China trade goods and services worth about $650 billion each year, the largest trading relationship in the world between two countries. But China exports far more to the United States than the other way round, making it more challenging for the country to hit back against US tariffs.

China's July CPI up 2.1%, PPI 4.6%

hina’s consumer price index (CPI), a major gauge of inflation, rose 2.1 percent from a year earlier in July, beating expectations of 1.9 percent and staying well within the government’s comfort range of below 3 percent.To get more china business news, you can visit shine news official website.

On a month-on-month basis, the CPI climbed 0.3 percent, according to the National Bureau of Statistics data on Thursday.

Non-food prices pushed the inflation rate higher, increasing 2.4 percent year-on-year and 0.3 percent month-on-month.

On a yearly basis, medical and health care prices ticked up 4.6 percent, transport and communications prices gained 3 percent, while costs of accommodation rose 2.4 percent. Educational, cultural and recreational prices increased 2.3 percent.

Food prices went up 0.5 percent year-on-year and edged up 0.1 percent month-on-month.

The price of pork, China’s staple meat, continued to slump in July, down 9.6 percent year-on-year, dragging down CPI growth by 0.24 percentage point. On a monthly basis, however, it registered a 2.9 percent increase, faster than the 1.1 percent rise in June.

The average year-on-year CPI growth for the January-July period stood at 2 percent, according to the NBS.

Analysts said the robust domestic consumption power and concentrated traveling demands stemming from the summer vacation resulted in such a monthly figure and they forecast that the yearly consumer and factory pricing index will be well under control, despite the escalating Sino-US trade friction and the widespread global trading tensions.

China’s producer price index (PPI), which measures costs for goods at the factory gate, rose 4.6 percent year-on-year in July, the NBS said.

The July growth slowed slightly compared with the 4.7 percent rise in June.

NBS statistician Sheng Guoqing said the carryover effect accounted for 3.9 percentage points in the PPI growth.

On a month-on-month basis, producer prices went up 0.1 percent in July, according to the NBS.Factory prices of production materials grew 6 percent year-on-year, contributing 4.5 percentage points to the overall PPI growth. Those of consumer goods climbed 0.6 percent year-on-year.

Of all industrial sectors, producer prices in oil and natural gas exploration surged 42.1 percent year-on-year, 9.4 percentage points faster than the previous month. Oil, coal and other fuel processing posted a 24.6 percent increase in producer prices.


China calls itself rational amid trade battle with Trump

Launching an unusually personal attack on the U.S. President Donald Trump, Chinese state media lashed out at his trade policies on Monday.To get more china national news, you can visit shine news official website.

Engaged in a months-long trade war with the U.S., China seems to have started feeling the impact of tariffs.

With growth concerns roiling its financial xafss, Beijing is engaged in various efforts to reassure investors about the health of the country’s economy.

On Monday, the Communist Party’s People’s Daily rebuked the U.S. and the Trump administration for escalating the trade conflict, and said thanks to U.S. policy, trade has become a “zero-sum game.”

While China’s strictly controlled news outlets have so far, refrained from specifically targeting Trump, on Monday, the overseas edition of the ruling Communist Party’s People’s Daily newspaper singled out Trump.

A commentary on the paper’s front page said that Trump was starring in his own “street fighter-style deceitful drama of extortion and intimidation.”

It further said that Trump’s desire for others to play along with his drama is “wishful thinking,” and argued that the U.S. had escalated trade friction with China and turned international trade into a “zero-sum game.”

The paper pointed out, “Governing a country is not like doing business,” and added that Trump’s actions imperilled the national credibility of the U.S.

Meanwhile, the Global Times, which is a nationalistic newspaper linked to the Chinese Communist Party and the country’s top tabloid issued a stern warning to the U.S., saying Beijing is prepared for a prolonged trade battle with the U.S. President.

Targeting top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow in a column, the Global Times editorial board argued that the communist nation would eventually emerge victorious despite short-term pain.

The paper said, “China is bidding farewell to an era of growth heavily dependent on exports. In future, the U.S. economy will depend more on the Chinese xafs than the other way around, and that is a tendency about which all American elites are aware, including Mr. Kudlow.”

The Global Times wrote that China “has to defend its right to development, and we don’t fear sacrificing short-term interests.” It added, “China has time to fight to the end. Time will prove that the U.S. eventually makes a fool of itself.”

Further, the Global Times column stated that the Asian nation remains “key to the survival” of U.S. businesses and farmers and labeled the Trump administration’s trade agenda an effort to “crush China’s economic sovereignty.”

An editorial in the paper also said that China is staying calm and rational in the face of an escalating trade dispute with the U.S.

Referring to China’s announcement made on Friday, in which the country said it was preparing to retaliate in the trade war with new tariffs on about $60 billion worth of U.S. goods – Global Times argued, “China’s countermeasures are rational, and the emphasis can be found in their quantitative and qualitative aspects.”

In its op-ed, the Global Times said, “China’s recent counter-response is a restrained one, and the country is reserving the right and its ability to announce more against the U.S. China’s countermeasures aim to minimize the detrimental impact on domestic production and living standards. China is balancing short-term gain with long-term interests, risk versus opportunity, along with core and marginal interests.”

The country’s Ministry of Commerce had stated in an announcement on its website that China’s import taxes would range in rates from 5 percent to 25 percent.


Massive movie metropolis launched in Qingdao, China by billionaire

Wang Jianlin, the billionaire boss of China’s Dalian Wanda Group, said on Saturday he will turn the northern port city of Qingdao into a global film production hub as he launched a sprawling studio complex in a ceremony attended by hundreds.To get more qingdao news, you can visit shine news official website.

Covering an area equivalent to more than 200 football fields, the 400-acre Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis boasts the world’s biggest movie studio and has been touted as China’s answer to Hollywood.The $8 billion project, built partly on an artificial island, also includes hotels, a theme park and a yacht club.

Wang, whose group controls U.S. cinema chain AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc and U.S. studio Legendary Entertainment, promised generous subsidies for film makers but indicated a focus on China’s domestic film xafs.

“We will boost the Chinese movie industry development,” Wang said at the project’s opening ceremony.

“We will also turn Qingdao into a global hub for film,” he said, making no reference to Hollywood in his brief speech.

Hundreds of Chinese film industry representatives attended, as well as Hollywood executives and Chinese government officials that included the vice governor of Shandong province.A handful of U.S.-China film ventures have fallen apart due to cultural clashes. Financing deals – including Wanda’s $1 billion wooing of Hollywood studio Dick Clark Productions Inc – have also collapsed. Hollywood’s share of the Chinese xafs has lost ground to a surge of popular and sometimes patriotic-minded Chinese films.

So far, no major American movie has been produced at Oriental, which partially opened in 2016, except Legendary Entertainment’s Pacific Rim: Uprising and Great Wall.

Wanda said previously it aimed to host at least five to six Hollywood projects in its first year of full operation in 2018.Oriental Movie Metropolis is looking to appeal to domestic demand, and is in no rush to attract Hollywood A-listers, President Sun Hengqin told Reuters in an interview, in contrast to the company’s previous ambition to get major Hollywood producers to sign up.

All the 30 completed sound stages have been booked to make domestic movies, including a 3 billion yuan (US$474 million) fantasy movie based on a Chinese classic novel, Sun said.Sun added that production companies will not get subsidies unless they receive the green light from Chinese regulators, potentially a hurdle for foreign movie makers. China is known for its heavy-handedness in the entertainment industry and censors are tough.

“We are not making any commitment yet,” David Kornblum, vice president of international sales and xafsing for the Asia-Pacific at Walt Disney Studios, told Reuters on the sidelines of Saturday’s launch.

China’s box office revenue is still swelling at double-digit rates after years of breakneck growth and, with Hollywood know-how and bigger budgets, Chinese movies are gaining momentum as they find ways to play on domestic themes and improve production quality.


Stocks Fall as Trade Tensions Weigh on Investors

Trade tensions weighed on Asian xafss on Thursday, as benchmark stock indexes in the region fell after the Trump administration said it would consider more than doubling proposed tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.To get more chinese business news, you can visit shine news official website.

China’s main stock index dropped 2 percent. In Hong Kong, an index of China’s biggest listed companies, was down by more.

European stocks followed Asian xafss, with indexes in Germany and Britain both opening lower.Hours before, President Trump instructed the United States trade representative to look into increasing tariffs on Chinese imports like fish, handbags and other goods to 25 percent from 10 percent, a significant step in a dispute that is beginning to take a toll on industries and consumers in both countries.If it had not been for the sideswipe on trade, xafss would have been in much better shape this week,” Hirokazu Kabeya, chief global strategist at Daiwa Securities, told Reuters.

A final decision on the size and scope of the tariffs is not expected before September, but any tariffs on $200 billion worth of imports would come on top of the existing penalties on $34 billion worth of products and an additional $16 billion that are scheduled to go into effect soon.
China has vowed to respond to any trade measures in kind, and it has already imposed its own tariffs on $34 billion worth of American goods.

Also weighing on the xafss in the region were rising United States bond yields. Yields on the 10-year Treasury note, which rise as prices fall, was near 3 percent, the highest level in weeks. Rising yields could make dollar-backed debt costlier to repay, especially for emerging xafss.

Investors often rush to the safety of government bonds in times of xafs turmoil. But a stretch of strong economic data reports in the United States has recently encouraged investors. The Federal Reserve, as it held its benchmark interest rate steady, said Wednesday that economic growth was “solid.”
