over the world. online and interactive. german to go. learn german for free with d.w. . looking. good. american bourbon whiskey and cheese will get more expensive in mexico as soon as the mexican government far is all for italians or the us could this be the donald trump chance to tear up the not agreement once and for all. less than three weeks to go before kiel actions in turkey on his inflation is running away when again with prices skyrocketing.
7:17 pm
also on the show on world environment day we looked at asia the region's booming economies dump more plastic into the seas than the rest of the globe become bind. busy w. business live from berlin and this after the us is tariffs on mexican steel and other many a mexico is now retaliating with tariffs on american farm and steel products bourbon whiskey bourbon whiskey well cheese steel and motorboats phase duties of twenty to twenty five percent say trump could use mexico's retaliation to finally rip up the nuff the trade deal between mexico canada and the us trumps economic advisor larry kudlow said today that the president would prefer to negotiate separately with canada and mexico. now to see how that went down the markets and go to sleep in frankfurt only is this the move to waiting for dash any any enough to hopes. yes it's certainly giving them ammunition
7:18 pm
to say that mexico is not playing ball and canada probably won't either and irrespective of the fact to move first you know he has a case to make to his voters but here there is someone who's trampling on the united states' interests and it could lead to the beginning of the end of nafta but you know this the reaction to this also shows how bizarre this whole conflict is the mexico of mexico's pays or the currency when sharply down when the news came and that of course is detrimental to both sides if you will the mexicans they get more competitive with the lower pay so they get more attractive as a location for for factories but that could lead to jobs going into mexico but on the other hand of course with the americans. they can't sell their products as well
