„Nicht gut genug“: Trump lehnt EU-Angebot zu Null-Autozöllen ab

Posted by hkarner - 31. August 2018

„Die EU ist fast so schlimm wie China, nur kleiner“, meint der US-Präsident. Brüssel hatte vorgeschlagen, die Autozölle

US-Präsident Donald Trump hat ein Angebot der Europäischen Union ausgeschlagen, Zölle auf Autos gegenseitig auf Null zu reduzieren. Das Angebot sei „nicht gut genug“, sagte Trump in einem Interview der US-Nachrichtenagentur Bloomberg, das am Donnerstag veröffentlicht wurde. „Die EU ist fast so schlimm wie China, nur kleiner“, sagte Trump und wiederholte damit seine bereits vor Wochen gewählten Worte im Handelsstreit mit Europa.

EU-Handelskommissarin Cecilia Malmström hatte zuvor einen entsprechenden Vorschlag unterbreitet. Die EU sei bereit, „unsere Autozölle auf Null zu reduzieren, wenn die USA dasselbe tun“, sagte sie am Donnerstag in Brüssel.

The government-guaranteed prices that have propelled growth in wind and solar energy around the world are being cut back, says Nick Martyniuk, WePower’s founder. So his firm wants to help developers of renewables raise money by selling the rights to the electricity their plants will produce once built. Customers will buy a smart contract now, running on Ethereum’s blockchain, that will provide them with power later.

Using a blockchain offers several advantages, says Mr Martyniuk, who used to work as an energy trader. Big energy users such as foundries and aluminium smelters already negotiate such contracts with power stations, but they are often complex and time-consuming. Contracts on a blockchain could be offered off the shelf, allowing smaller companies—and perhaps, one day, individuals—to use them too. Such contracts would be as easily tradable as any other crypto-asset, creating a secondary market in power agreements. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
