It may take three or four months for American shoppers to feel the pinch from President Donald Trump's latest round of tariff increases, but retailers will have little choice but to raise prices on a wide range of goods to cover the rising cost of imports before too long, according to economists and industry consultants. Trump’s plan to lift tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports to 25 percent from 10 percent is almost certain to slow U.S. economic growth and, if they stay in place for an extended period, could cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs, one forecaster said. Angered over China reneging on previously agreed elements in the two countries' latest trade talks, Trump has ordered the new levies to take effect as of 12:01 a.m. EDT (0401 GMT) on Friday and would hit goods leaving Chinese ports after that time.

As more markets adopt open banking — which mandates banks to open their systems to third parties — it will be increasingly critical for banks to ensure the security of not only their networks, but those of their ecosystems partners as well, according to a report from Accenture (ACN) that predicts key technology trends in banking over the next three years. According to the Accenture Banking Technology Vision 2019, while consumers trust banks to securely hold their data, maintaining that trust as the industry shifts toward open banking will require banks to strike the right balance between robust security and easy-to-use customer experiences. “Security is only as good as the weakest link in the network of ecosystem partners, and the global trend toward open banking is increasing the spiderweb of interconnectivity among banks and third parties — creating additional points of weakness and vulnerability in banks’ network security,” said Alan McIntyre, global head of Accenture’s Banking practice.
