exactly having more than 36000000 people on lockdown and new cases confirm is definitely taking aim investors say confidence and some of them wrong to fork over into u.s. treasury bonds so that's why do you fold to 1.6 percent sending it bag stocks down also some household names here on wall street such as disney are taking a hit especially after the company announced the globes you know. it comes also at a time over a particular substantial traffic but also the time. been falling since the beginning of last year my donuts also has over $2900.00 restaurants in china and its shares closed lower to now despite the concerns that many in the travel industry also have about the coronavirus boeing shares saw a major boost on friday what was behind that. there was another
rollercoaster of a day for boeing shares shares went down were down after us media started reporting that the company could cut production again on its $707.00 dreamliner but being say change that u.s. regulators were pleased with the progress the company's doing in revising its $737.00 marks now the. plane approval to come early and that means that said most of them already took out all their schedules until the summer or after and it's not only the u.s. regulators but all those around the world which also have to give it the green light for the plane to fly as they lose their own new york thank you. and now to some of the other business stories making news german a carrier condo or is being bought by polish airline lot that's according to the company on friday last year kondo received

striking workers fell this week after the government made concessions. well friday marked the final day of the annual world economic forum meeting in davos the event turned 50 this year and celebrated by putting a younger generation front and center their edge and see over the climate crisis drove much of the event and created some dramatic contrasts with world leadership. young activists like gretta tune burge stormed into davos planning to force through their message that change can't wait this was more than any other a world economic forum led by the world's youth the other generation has a lot of experience but we have ideas we have energy but for those hoping to ensure an adult hood of environmental progress the forum got off to a bad start on day one president trump decried them as prophets of doom and instead chose to talk about a growing u.s.
economy america's thriving america's flourishing in years america is winning again like never before the disappointment was clear i didn't hear anything about the world america is leader in the world and. i think that litters have to take care not all about themselves but also about other nations because we have the same collective planet since then the town of davos is witnessed more assertive environmental statements urging corporations and nations alike to wake up to the challenge the world is facing it is absolutely essential to recognize that climate change is an existential threat to us all and if climate change is running faster then what we are in day 3 so anglo-american push for renewed global commitment to the paris climate accord. with oil that you know that this is in fact the world must act together it's an international agreement that unfortunately not
everyone is still with it but many are but it also means above all that every country must make its contribution and buy it back that's why it's most young delegates began the forum complaining that previous pledges had been all talk so pretty much nothing has been done since the global emissions of c o 2 has not. reduced leaders must now make good on their davos promises because an impatient younger. ration is watching. so change seems to be in the icy alpine air in davos where the powerful and influential have been meeting for decades people like nobel prize winning economist joseph stiglitz our very own ben fizzle and asked him how different this year's world economic forum has been for him. it was different in 2 ways i think the sense of commitment to climate change the sense of urgency was much greater than i've
seen before. and this is true not only of civil society government leaders but also in the business community some real real commitment the other striking thing was the dissonance between. the theme of the conference stakeholder capitalism workers environment customers a broad perspective and having donald trump here. you know they talk of he said he was helping the middle class as he passed a tax bill that raised the tax on a vast majority of the middle class well it lower the taxes on the billionaires here and on the big corporations here that said we'll stakeholder capitalism and catch on will we see action. i don't know i think there's obviously a rhetorical flourish in the united states there is. understandable
defensiveness because it's very clear that the shareholder capitalism has led to an environmental crisis a a inequality crisis an opioid crisis a childhood diabetes crisis all these things financial crisis all these things that are going wrong with american capitalism. capitalism is not serving large fractions of our society and they know the american people are unhappy it seems like the u.s. is the problem i mean china's leading the way as far sustainability goes so many other companies around the world making their pledges here but we don't hear pledges from the u.s. oil majors or from mr trump i think there is a sense in which the u.s. is is the problem let me emphasize though it is. mr trump that is overwhelmingly the problem i believe if we had a different administration these business leaders who are less leaders than they
might be would follow new administration with a new commitment to address these crises which are not only american crises been in various forms our global crises is the sickly it's thank you very much thank you nice to be here. economist joseph stiglitz speaking to w.'s and friends alone and davos there and for more of our coverage of this year's world economic forum and all the other business news you can go to our web site that's v.w. dot com slash business i'm chris colburn reeling from me and the entire team thanks for the company and enjoy your weekend.
