Global stocks retreat as U.S. worries spread

20 hours ago

(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service … Stock markets around the world are in retreat as a selloff ricochets from the U.S. Is it the latest buy-the-dip opportunity or are there more serious risks at play? Then, a conference on the illegal trade in wildlife opens Thursday in London – it's worth $22 billion a year, making it the fourth-biggest transnational organized crime. Afterwards, prepare for takeoff: The world’s longest non-stop flight, from Singapore to New York, clocks in at 19 hours and launches Thursday. But it comes at a time of rising global oil prices and targets premium-cabin consumers. So, how viable is its longevity? And we’ll share what our listeners have been saying about how they survive long flights.
