France’s prime minister is proposing tougher and faster punishment for people who attack the police, as the government pays a national tribute to the latest police officer killed in the line of duty. Prime Minister Jean Castex will lead Tuesday’s ceremony in the southern city of Avignon to honor officer Eric Masson, killed last week in an apparent drug-related incident. It was the latest of several attacks targeting French police that have angered police unions and become a political issue ahead of regional elections in June and France's presidential election next year.

(Bloomberg) -- German inflation could climb above 3% as the economy recovers from the pandemic, but it won’t last and the European Central Bank will look beyond such volatility, Executive Board member Isabel Schnabel said in an interview.“What we see is that very pronounced fluctuations in inflation have emerged because of the pandemic,” Schnabel told German broadcaster RTL/NTV. “Our monetary policy strategy is oriented to the medium term, and this means we look through these short-term fluctuations.”The ECB, which focuses on the euro zone as a whole, has used an emergency bond-buying program, negative interest rates and long-term banks loans to counter the damage to the economy from the Covid-19 crisis.The bloc slid into a double-dip recession in the first quarter, held back by a chaotic start to vaccinations and the slow rollout of a joint fiscal stimulus fund. In contrast, the U.S. has powered ahead with faster inoculations and a bigger stimulus package which is fueling concerns of higher inflation.Schnabel said that there is no sign accelerating inflation is becoming entrenched in the euro area, but if it did, the ECB would react carefully by adjusting its measures.Officials have said they expect a heated debate at the central bank’s next policy meeting in June over whether to start slowing monetary stimulus as coronavirus restrictions are loosened and the economy starts to recover.‘Purely Speculative’French Governing Council member Francois Villeroy de Galhau on Tuesday labeled talk about paring back bond purchases before the ECB’s emergency program ends in March 2022 as “purely speculative.”“Our monthly volume of purchases will remain freely determined to the end by our will to guaranteed favorable financing conditions for all economic agents,” he said in a separate interview with Franceinfo TV. The ECB is currently reviewing its inflation goal of just below 2%. Policy maker Olli Rehn, who heads the Bank of Finland, told the Financial Times at the weekend that it may be worth accepting an overshoot of the inflation target to focus on employment and offset years of sluggish price growth.(Updates with Villeroy comments in seventh paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

U.S. electric car maker Tesla Inc has halted plans to buy land to expand its Shanghai plant and make it a global export hub, people familiar with the matter said, due to uncertainty created by U.S.-China tensions. With 25% tariffs on imported Chinese electric vehicles imposed on top of existing levies under former President Donald Trump still in place, Tesla now intends to limit the proportion of China output in its global production, two of the four people said. Tesla had earlier considered expanding exports of its China-made entry-level Model 3 to more markets, including the United States, sources told Reuters, a plan that had not previously been reported.

Moody's has upgraded its outlook for the global airlines industry to "positive" from "negative", as the ratings agency expects steady vaccine rollouts across geographies to drive a rebound in commercial air travel. "While the continuing pandemic means there is a risk of further disruption to air travel in various countries at various times, we expect an increase in vaccinations to lower border restrictions and increase demand for air travel over the next 12 to 18 months," Moody's said in a note on Tuesday. In terms of domestic air travel, Moody's noted that China, the United States and Australia are leading the recovery.

The number of working-age people in China fell over the past decade as its aging population barely grew, a census showed Tuesday, adding to economic challenges for Chinese leaders who have ambitious strategic goals. The total population rose to 1.411 billion people last year, up 72 million from 2010, according to the once-a-decade census. The ruling Communist Party has enforced birth limits since 1980 to restrain population growth but worries the workforce is shrinking.
For years, Seth Rogen and James Franco have had a strong personal and professional relationship, leading them to work on various films together over time. However, that connection has changed drastically as a result of the many allegations of sexual misconduct against Franco, and Rogen is now publicly distancing himself from his former collaborator and friend. Franco has almost always been a controversial figure in Hollywood, but people really started viewing him differently after a 2018 LA Times report detailed the accusations of five women who claimed that the actor had been sexually inappropriate with them when he was teaching acting class. The report was released at the height of the #MeToo movement, resulting in a wave of intense criticism towards Franco. At the time, his friend and frequent co-star Rogen stuck by his side, saying that the accusations wouldn’t keep him from working with Franco again. “The truth is that my perspective on this is the least relevant perspective,” Rogen said. “I’m friends with these people and I’m a dude. All that combined makes me the last person who should be talking about this.” “There are so many people with real things to contribute to the #MeToo discussion that anything I say is not going to add anything useful,” he added. Years later, however, it seems that Rogen doesn’t feel the same way anymore. The case wrapped up — the women filed a lawsuit against Franco that was ultimately settled in February 2021 — but the weed entrepreneur has now taken on a very different perspective. In conversation with The Sunday Times, Rogen walked back his previous support of Franco and revealed that their working relationship had been significantly affected by the allegations. “What I can say is that I despise abuse and harassment and I would never cover or conceal the actions of someone doing it, or knowingly put someone in a situation where they were around someone like that,” he told the outlet. “I also look back to that interview in 2018 where I comment that I would keep working with James, and the truth is that I have not and I do not plan to right now.” Rogen also hinted that his friendship with Franco had also been impacted by the legal issues. “I don’t know if I can define that right now during this interview,” Rogen explained carefully. “I can say it, um, you know, it has changed many things in our relationship and our dynamic.” Better late than never when it comes to this kind of personal responsibility, but Rogen’s past behaviour is hard to forget, especially when some of it was particular harmful towards Franco’s alleged victims. In his 2014 Saturday Night Live opening monologue, he famously joked about Franco’s alleged sexual misconduct with a teenager onstage (a moment that he does now regret) — that moment doesn’t just go away, even with an apology. Nonetheless, Rogen’s change of heart and contrition is important, and his choice to not work with an alleged abuser is one small step forward for making spaces that much safer for women.
