Chinese companies will have to disclose more information about audits and whether they are controlled by a government or else leave U.S. stock markets under a rule approved by securities regulators.

Companies that used an auditor in a foreign jurisdiction will be required to confirm they are not “owned or controlled by a government entity” there, according to the SEC.

HONOLULU (AP) — Cheri Burness' dog was the first to signal something was wrong with their tap water. He stopped drinking it two weeks ago. Then Burness started feeling stomach cramps. Her 12-year-old daughter was nauseous. “It was just getting worse every day,” said Burness, whose husband is in the Navy. Their family is among hundreds of military families living near Pearl Harbor with similar complaints after the Navy's water system somehow became contaminated by petroleum. The problems have aff

Japan must maintain its expansive fiscal policy until its economic recovery from the pandemic is on track and not dial back its ultra-loose monetary policy too soon, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said on Friday. The coronavirus pandemic hit the economy hard, and its recovery has been relatively modest but growth is on course to regain momentum, the OECD said in its Japan economic survey, which it published for the first time since April 2019. If the Bank of Japan's (BOJ) monetary policy were to succeed in bringing inflation to its 2% target, it would likely lead to higher interest rates and therefore trigger a need for fiscal consolidation, the OECD said in its survey.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos Thursday, actor Alec Baldwin discussed the accidental on-set shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins back in October, and what could be in store for his career, both short and long term, in the wake of the tragic event. After candidly telling Stephanopoulos that he “couldn’t give a s**t” about his career anymore, the host asked him, “Is it over?” “It could be, it could be,” Baldwin said. “If I decide that I -- I mean could I work? I'm gonna go make another movie in January. And I said to them, ‘Do you wanna get out of it? Do you wanna get rid of me 'cause of what happened?’ They said, ‘No.’ But I say to myself, ‘Do I wanna work much more after this? Is it worth it?’” Since the incident happened, the 3-time Emmy winner says he’s been having very vivid dreams and hasn’t slept in weeks. But among the range of emotions he’s gone through, there’s one that he hasn’t been feeling. When Stephanopoulos asked if this is the worst thing that has ever happened to Baldwin, he answered “yes” without hesitation. Then Stephanopoulos asked Baldwin if he feels guilt?” “No. No,” Baldwin said. “I feel that someone is responsible for what happened, and I can't say who that is, but I know it's not me. Honest to god, if I felt that I was responsible, I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible,” Baldwin said. “And I don't say that lightly.”
