"A historic expansion in US borrowing during a period of economic growth, alongside rising bond yields, will cause a surge in the cost of servicing American debt, according to Goldman Sachs Group. “Federal fiscal policy is entering uncharted territory,” Goldman analysts wrote in a note to clients. “In the past, as the economy strengthens and the debt burden increases, Congress has responded by raising taxes and cutting spending. This time around, the opposite has occurred.” Because the average maturity of US debt is almost six years, rising yields will take some time before they send the interest rate the Treasury pays to borrow above the growth rate of the gross domestic product, Goldman estimates. When that happens, it will send the ratio of debt to GDP, which is already elevated, climbing further. If current fiscal policies are extended, the analysts predict, US net interest expense relative to GDP will exceed levels seen in the 1980s and early 1990s by 2027. And debt-to-GDP will probably be higher than 100 percent, “putting the US in a worse fiscal position than the experience of the 1940s or 1990s,” they wrote....."

"Monday’s meeting between Trump and Netanyahu in the Oval Office was mainly a celebration of the embassy move that both hailed as a sign that Israeli-US relations have never been stronger. Netanyahu lavished praise on Trump, and Netanyahu mentioned the goal of peace with the Palestinians only in passing and focused instead on the topic he always makes his top priority when he visits Washington, namely the threat from Iran. Iran and its growing presence in Syria and Lebanon are a major concern for Israel, and Netanyahu made clear that addressing this threat is his highest priority....."

"The video, posted on Facebook, captured a short and tense verbal exchange last week between a young black Roxbury man and a young white Boston police officer. In the recording, the officer asked the man’s name, grilled him about where he lived, and quizzed him about why he wasn’t at work on a weekday afternoon. The man was not accused of committing a crime. The man, recording the incident on his smartphone, asked why the officer wanted such details. At one point, he calls the officer a pig, and in another moment he got close to the officer’s face. “Why are you bothering me?’’ the man asked the officer. The video of the confrontation, lasting a little more than two minutes, ended peacefully, but it exploded on social media during the weekend....."

"After years of targeting health-conscious beer drinkers with Michelob Ultra, Anheuser-Busch InBev is going after an even choosier consumer: the organic shopper. The brewer is introducing a new beer in the United States called Michelob Ultra Pure Gold that’s made with organic grains and approved by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. The idea is to capitalize on the popularity of organic food and beverages — and win over people who might turn up their noses at big beer brands."

"Tyson Foods Inc., the largest US meat producer, wants to get deeper into the snack game. In its latest attempt to move beyond traditional chicken products, Tyson has put together a team of seven employees focused on snacks and product development. Their goal is to develop a new consumer product to put on store shelves in six months. Sales of meat snacks have surged almost 30 percent over the last four years, hitting $2.9 billion in 2017, Nielsen data show. Consumers are embracing high-protein products as they cut back on sugar. Tyson is looking to capture some of that zeitgeist. In its so-called innovation lab, Tyson is looking to make snacks by capitalizing on another hot foodie topic: the issue of waste. The team started in January and is developing a protein snack that the company says will use ingredients like poultry scraps, spent grain from brewers, and vegetable pulp from juicers. Tyson’s move to packaged products comes as traditional food companies struggle to compete with trendy upstarts like Chobani and Kind Snacks."
