Khalid al-Falih’s comments help lift price, with Opec likely to confirm move next month Oil prices have staged a recovery, climbing above $70 a barrel after Saudi Arabia said the world’s major crude producers agreed that supply needs to be significantly cut next year.

Populists like Trump exacerbate rather than cure corruption | Barry Eichengreen31h Populists like Trump exacerbate rather than cure corruption | Barry Eichengreen
The US president and Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro will repopulate the swamp rather than drain it Following Emmanuel Macron’s election as president of France in May 2017, global elites breathed a sigh of relief. The populist wave, they reassured themselves, had crested. Voters had regained their sanity. Helped along by an electoral system in which the two leading candidates faced off in a second round, the “silent majority” had united behind the centrist candidate in the runoff. But now we have Brazil’s presidential election, in which Jair Bolsonaro, who displays the authoritarian, anti-establishment, and anti-other tendencies of a textbook populist, won decisively in the second round. A two-round electoral system in which the runoff pits a populist outsider against the last mainstream candidate standing is no guarantee, evidently, that the centre will hold.
