this is your business report i'm stephen beard's in blood thanks for watching the u.s. economy grew at a faster rate this summer than previously thought analysts say it's a sign of the country's economic hardiness turn a global slowdown the commerce department reported 2 point one percent g.d.p. growth between july and september that's 2 tenths of a percent higher than an earlier estimate it turns out that businesses invested more than expected summer spending meanwhile remains robust a good sign for the coming holiday season. and we go now to core to our financial correspondent in new york i want to talk about another traditional gauge of the u.s. economy market indexes yesterday the dow jones industrial average closing at a record high for the 100th time since donald trump's inauguration so what's behind that surge. you know actually here on wednesday we had another record close so now it's $101.00 records since january of
2017 that is pretty stunning and us president donald trump better campaign event in florida actually said everybody is getting rich things to us president donald trump well especially last year probably the huge tax cuts that we saw with donald trump. why companies made more money and that led to some of those records but also on the other side we have more spending from the government and less revenue because of the lowered taxes so that also means that the debt load is increasing and then we also shouldn't forget the. trend not just with the economy but also with the stock market already started in march of 2009 and big then the president was not. barack obama but you could probably put. the stock market is on fire but as i
said it also comes as a price with higher debt. so yes thursday is the thanksgiving holiday in the u.s. are americans feeling thankful for this economy. well as i mentioned don of pranks though donald trump that everybody is getting rich with this stock market on fire but that is actually not necessarily the case just look at one statistic 84 percent of stocks held by americans actually belong to the wealthiest 10 percent of households and so it's only a minority of americans who profit from the rise in the stock market just through their pension plans or for one ok so it's only the lucky few who really participate in this rally on wall street or a lot of their force in new york thank you over to europe now where farmers are making themselves heard this week or tuesday in the german capital berlin
protesters on tractors for a part of the city to a standstill irish and french farmers have now also taken to the streets the precise reason for each protest may be different but they all share a common message farmers feel like they're getting a raw deal. next stop paris on wednesday morning hundreds of farmers hit the road for the french capital to demand answers from president my chrome place knowledge of road says they made their way to the famous shown sillies a. if you do will conclude this agriculture is dying seriously in every sector just last week i lost another colleague to suicide this can't go on there more than 2 suicides per day among the french farming community that's clearly a sign that things are very very bad and we've come here to tell the government to wake up. the french farmers insists they're being severely hit
by policies such as the phasing out of the common we'd kill it life is 8 they also want an end to excessive criticism of random or welfare and the use of pesticides and practice they call angry bashing. it's a message echoed by their colleagues in ireland who blocked rainy streets in dublin this week they say they're shouldering too much blame for climate change back in paris the farmers didn't get the direct response from president micron that they demand it but they were promised by a government spokesperson that they would always be treated fairly. in the war actually more like that we're currently opening a period of commercial negotiation between produces a large scale distributors. and the government is clearly listening closely at this delicate time which allows prices to be fixed for next year will ensure that there are extensive checks to make sure that these negotiations are conducted within the
law. the anger shown by the french farmers reflects a dissatisfaction among many they're struggling european colleagues behind it is a fear that the next big policy change targeted at their sector could prove to be the last straw. now to another big agriculture story about a quarter of the global pig population is expected to die as a result of an epidemic of african swine fever that's according to the world organization for animal health the epidemic has been spreading for over a year now and hardest hit is china where pork is a regular part of the diet and prices are soaring. pork is a staple in chinese diets but for many chinese it's becoming a luxury the price has at times tripled within the past year i see that you are eating less pork now i've definitely been affected by that now we eat it once
a week before we were eating it 2 or 3 times a week earlier experiences you know they make you better. behind the soaring prices is an outbreak of african swine fever the virus is harmless to humans but it's decimated china's livestock herds some $200000000.00 pigs have already been killed due to the disease about 40 percent of all stocks and to diminish stuck means rising prices but it's not just consumers who are suffering. and you heard the price of pork has increased and definitely there are less people buying it and eating it honestly speaking we don't want the prices to be high we sell more when the price is lower if the cost is high the profits will be low. restaurants are also affected they have to try and absorb the rising prices but inevitably end up passing costs along to consumers in order to make something. like the consequences of swine fever has spread to the country's political and economic policy the
beijing government has increased imports for example from argentina in a bid to keep costs low gloriana. gaza city council places high importance on the issue of the rise in port prices and has already enacted a series of measures these measures and policies up to now appear to have had enough it was that impact which can happen even fashion digitas oil. it will be months however before chinese pork production recovers that's when the next generation of pigs will reach maturity for slaughter provided the virus doesn't get them 1st. now to some of the other global business stories making news b.m.w. is lowering bonuses for its $90000.00 workers in germany as part of a drive to reduce costs profit sharing for employees will be cut by 20 percent starting next year this year b.m.w.
