Trump's ‘America First' Tensions Exposed as Defense Secretary Ends Asia Trip
(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. The tension between bolstering U.S. alliances while pursuing an "America First" foreign policy tripped up Defense Secretary Mark Esper on a tour through Asia -- while still leaving the Pentagon chief exposed to Washington politics thousands of miles away.Over the course of a week, Esper had the unenviable job of pressing South Korea and Japan to spend vastly more money to host U.S. troops, rescuing a soon-to-expire intelligence pact between the Asian allies and extending an olive branch to the notoriously fickle North Korean regime as a year-end deadline for nuclear talks seems all but dead.It was rough going.Esper landed in Seoul with Trump demanding South Korea pay about $5 billion for the privilege of hosting U.S. troops, a 400% increase from current levels. Similar demands last year cratered discussions between the two countries and threatened to divide the allies just as they were trying to present a united front against North Korea's nuclear program."Korea is a wealthy country, and could and should pay more to offset the cost of defense," Esper said Friday, a message he reiterated days later in Manila. It's an argument the Trump administration has made to allies around the world, but in Asia it failed.Negotiations broke down soon after Esper left Seoul, with the U.S. side saying it cut talks short because the South Koreans "were not responsive" to Ameri

AI Poised to Impact High-Skill U.S. Jobs Including Finance, Tech
(Bloomberg) -- Artificial intelligence is coming for America's high-paid professions as it creates winners and losers across the labor market like never before.White-collar jobs and better-educated occupations along with production workers are among the most susceptible to AI's spread into the economy, according to a Brookings Institution report Wednesday that draws on a new analysis of patent data by a Stanford University economist."Just as the impacts of robotics and software tend to be sizable and negative on exposed middle- and low-skill occupations, so AI's inroads are projected to negatively impact higher-skill occupations," researchers Mark Muro, Jacob Whiton and Robert Maxim wrote. Workers with graduate or professional degrees will be almost four times as exposed to AI as workers with just a high school degree, the report showed.The researchers also concluded that AI appears most likely to affect men, prime-age and white and Asian American workers. Business, finance, and technology will be more exposed, along with natural resource and production industries, they found. Farming, one of humanity's earliest jobs, may also be affected by AI as drones and precision agriculture help boost productivity. Farming, fishing and forestry had the top exposure score of any occupational group.The paper is the latest in a growing body of research on how labor markets may be upended by AI, the algorithms that can learn to handle tasks by finding statistical patterns in data rather than by following directions f

3 "Strong Buy" Stocks That Are Heavily Discounted
Buy low, and sell high. That's old wisdom, but it's stayed with us through the ages because it's a sure way to grow your money. In the stock market, of course, buying low is the easy part.

Fed, FDIC approve merger of BB&T, SunTrust banks
BB&T Corp. and SunTrust Banks Inc. received the go-ahead for their $28 billion merger Tuesday from the Federal Reserve's board of governors and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The merger of regional banks, which is expected to close on Dec. 6, will create the nation's sixth-largest commercial bank, serving about 10 million U.S. customers. The combined bank will be called Truist Financial Corp. "We are pleased to have received regulatory approval to merge two strong companies with complementary business models and a high level of cultural alignment," BB&T CEO Kelly King said in a statement. "We'll be even better together for our clients, teammates, communities and shareholders." But the Fed also slapped SunTrust with an enforcement action for unfair and deceptive practices regarding customer fees between 2013 and 2017, which BB&T said the combined bank will comply with.
