In der Ukraine-Affäre verweigert der persönliche Anwalt von US-Präsident Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, die Übergabe von Dokumenten an das Repräsentantenhaus. Giuliani bezeichnete die Untersuchung der Abgeordneten für ein mögliches Amtsenthebungsverfahren gegen Trump am Dienstag als „illegitim“ und „verfassungswidrig“. Auch Vize-Präsident Mike Pence erklärte, er verweigere die Zusammenarbeit mit dem Repräsentantenhaus.

Das Weiße Haus wirft den oppositionellen Demokraten vor, in der Kongresskammer keine formelle Abstimmung für die Einleitung der Untersuchung abgehalten zu haben. Die Demokraten vertreten die Auffassung, dass dies bislang nicht nötig ist.

Giuliani ist in der Ukraine-Affäre eine zentrale Figur: Er soll maßgeblich Pläne geschmiedet haben, Druck auf die Ukraine auszuüben, um belastendes Material gegen den demokratischen Präsidentschaftsbewerber Joe Biden und dessen Sohn Hunter zu erhalten.

Trump hatte den ukrainischen Staatschef Wolodymyr Selenskyj im Juli in einem Telefonat zu Ermittlungen gegen die Bidens aufgefordert. Die oppositionellen Demokraten sehen darin einen klaren Machtmissbrauch Trumps. Sie haben eine Untersuchung für ein Amtsenthebungsverfahren eingeleitet, an der mehrere Ausschüsse des US-Repräsentantenhauses beteiligt sind.

LBLV provides an overview of economic news.

The main economic news for Tuesday, October 15:

1. Sanders presents economic plan before debate
U.S. senator Bernie Sanders released an economic plan on Monday, a day before the next debate among the Democratic U.S. presidential candidates, which aimed at curbing corporate tax avoidance, tightening antitrust enforcement and empowering workers. Sanders, one of the top three contenders for his party’s nomination, said in a statement his plan would raise up to $3 trillion over 10 years by upping the corporate tax rate to 35%, eliminating most corporate tax breaks and loopholes, and taking steps to eliminate use of offshore tax havens. His plan would require firms with more than $100 million in annual revenue and all publicly traded companies to begin selling shares to employees until they own at least 20 percent of the firm. These companies would also be required to let workers elect at least 45 percent of their boards of directors.

2. U.S. companies prepare for earnings season
U.S. companies are preparing to report third-quarter results amid U.S.-China trade conflict, which undermines the business environment and global economy overall. Earnings among S&P 500 earnings for the July-September period look set to mark the weakest performance in about three years, with respect to year-over-year quarterly changes. Analysts are forecasting a 3.2% decline in earnings for the quarter from a year ago, based on IBES data from Refinitiv. However, the historic trend, underlining that many companies’ earnings will surpass analyst estimates, can lead to the positive end of this quarter.

3. Germany imposes new rules for build 5G networks
Germany has finalized rules for the build-out of 5G mobile networks that will not exclude China’s Huawei Technologies. Government officials confirmed that Germany’s so-called security catalogue foresaw an evaluation of technical and other criteria. Meantime, no single vendor would be barred in order to create a level playing field for equipment vendors. Unlike the United States, German operators are all customers of Huawei and have warned that banning the Chinese vendor would add years of delays and billions of dollars in costs to launching 5G networks.

4. SoftBank prepares package to control WeWork
SoftBank Group Corp. has prepared a financing package for WeWork Companies Inc that would give it control over the office space provider, according the person familiar with the matter. The package would significantly increase the stake of SoftBank, which already owns around one third of WeWork, and further lessen the influence of co-founder Adam Neumann, said the source. According the data, SoftBank was in negotiations to make a $1 billion investment to enable WeWork to go through a major restructuring. Without a fresh infusion of cash, the shared workspace company risks running out of money as early as the end of the December.
