Cuomo's emergency action comes after a "series of actions to combat the increasing number of youth using vape products." E-cigarette companies have faced a great deal of backlash for marketing flavored products, apparently to young people in hopes of enticing them to try vapes, which could ultimately lead to an increase in teen vaping and youth nicotine addiction."New York is confronting this crisis head-on and today we are taking another nation-leading step to combat a public health emergency," Gov. Cuomo said at today's event."Manufacturers of fruit and candy-flavored e-cigarettes are intentionally and recklessly targeting young people, and today we're taking action to put an end to it. At the same time, unscrupulous stores are knowingly selling vaping products to underage youth — those retailers are now on notice that we are ramping up enforcement and they will be caught and prosecuted."Earlier this week, after reports of possible vape-related illnesses sparked concern in the medical world, President Trump also shared his thoughts on flavored vape products along with a desire to regulate them."It's not a wonderful thing," Trump said about vaping. "It's got big problems we've got to find out the extent of the problem."First Lady Melania Trump also chimed in on the topic and expressed her concern in a tweet about "the growing epidemic of e-cigarette use in our children."> I am deeply concerned about the growing epidemic of e-cigarette use in our children. We need to do all we can to protect the public from tobacco-related disease and death, and prevent e-cigarettes from becoming an on-ramp to nicotine addiction for a generation of youth. @HHSGov> > — Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) September 9, 2019As Mashable noted in an earlier piece, Alex Azar, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, said the specifics of the ban would take several weeks to put together. After the specifics are released the ban would then take 30 days to go into effect, and would remove all flavors, except tobacco, from the market.The plan would reportedly let manufacturers of flavored vapes apply for FDA approval in 2020.

Exclusive: Boeing CEO eyes major aircraft order under any U.S.-China trade deal

Exclusive: Boeing CEO eyes major aircraft order under any U.S.-China trade dealBoeing Co said on Tuesday that an aircraft order from China could result from any deal to end a yearlong trade war between the world’s two largest economies. Speaking to Reuters at the planemaker’s widebody aircraft factory in Everett, Boeing Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg cautioned that it was “tough to predict” the timing of a potential trade deal between the United States and China. Chicago-based Boeing calls itself the top U.S. exporter and has delivered more than one out of every four jetliners it made last year to customers in China, where it forecasts demand for 7,700 new airplanes over the next 20 years valued at $ 1.2 trillion.

Out of Order

Out of OrderA  question in the spirit of Donald Trump’s tweets this morning might be: Who’s trying harder to crash U.S. markets, the president of the United States or the president of China?After Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell didn’t forecast the loosening of monetary policy that Trump craves and China announced an imminent new round of tariffs, the president launched a Twitter barrage for the ages. He asked rhetorically whether Powell or President Xi is the enemy. He also "hereby ordered" U.S. companies to look for "an alternative to China." FedEx, Amazon, USPS, and UPS were singled out and instructed to "SEARCH FOR & REFUSE" illegal Fentanyl deliveries. The stock market duly tanked.The first thing to say about this is that in no world is it appropriate to compare the chairman of the Fed (even one who is allegedly too tight!) to a Communist dictator who runs a gulag and might yet crush the Hong Kong demonstrators.As for Trump’s “orders” to American business, of course, he has no such power. It’d be better if he didn’t think in such terms, let alone air them in public, even in impulsive, ineffectual tweets.Besides Fed policy, the underlying question is the trade war with China, which is intensifying, counter to what had been market expectations of a deal. As we’ve noted in the past, Trump has good cause to want to confront China over its cheating and unfair trade practices, but tariffs are a blunt instrument that hurt us as well as China and invite ready retaliation from the Chinese.It is a basic finding of economics that trade restrictions, on balance, reduce economic growth and harm consumers. Numerous analyses have shown that the current tariffs are costing each American household hundreds of dollars each year, and hundreds of thousands of dollars for each job they save in the protected industries, not to mention the suppression of business investment.The tariffs — along with the uncertainty created by the trade war — are obviously one reason that there are warning signs of rough economic waters ahead, including major downward revisions to recent job-creation estimates. Xi can see this as easily as anyone else. The Chinese economy is more vulnerable to the trade war than ours, and is sustaining more damage, but Xi isn’t running for reelection in 2020. Only Trump is.We shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that the Chinese have been completely recalcitrant and acted in bad faith, across the decades and during these negotiations. It wasn’t Trump who ripped up on almost-completed agreement earlier this year, but the Chinese. They struck what would have been all the meaningful constraints on their behavior and put the two counties back on a collision course.That said, there are all sorts of ways, besides tariffs, to pressure the Chinese. We could cooperate more closely with others in the region, including by reviving the Trans-Pacific Partnership. We could put a higher priority on concluding  free-trade agreements with Japan and Britain. We could bring more cases against China through the World Trade Organization. We could use rifle-shot retaliation against specific instances of Chinese cheating. We could limit Chinese access to our financial markets and our schools. None of this would be as thunderous as announcements of new tariffs, but it’d be more sustainable and likely more effective over the long term.What to do now? Perhaps the Chinese have determined to try to wait Trump out through the 2020 election and there’s no way out of the current confrontation. If not, Trump should be willing to accept a limited deal that effects a cease fire. Then, we can recalibrate and build a more strategic pressure campaign with the help of allies.Despite his prior assurances, the president is learning that trade wars are hard, certainly much harder than sending table-thumping tweets.
