cost is next. on counting the cost the european union is trying to change we'll look at the reasons why the economic cost of violence in mexico plus the timber companies accused of in danger the world's second largest rainforest. counting the cost on al-jazeera. hello i'm hasn't seeker this is counting the cost on al-jazeera your weekly look at the world of business and economics the european union is trying to change a look at the efforts to reform it. also this week illegal logging activists accuse timber companies of endangering the world's second largest rainforest in the democratic republic of congo. plus nafta and one of the world's worst digital divide look at the economic challenges ahead for mexico.
or the european union makes up one fifth of the world's economy part of its success is that each citizen see themselves as better off economically within the bloc than outside but that perception is being challenge the e.u. turned sixty last year and for some it may be showing its age this week's e.u. summit in brussels reform was tabled as a necessary adjustment to meet the new challenges french president emanuel mccraw is one of those driving the reforms he says now is a golden opportunity to make changes to ensure the future success of the bloc he is pushing for a more financially flexible you but divisions have been growing as well over the blocs policy on refugees on the opening day a breakthrough of sorts was achieved under the deal to block will boost funding to address the issue which has threatened the very solidarity of the bloc largely has
more. if it's being framed as a solution to the migration crisis i think it's the biggest exaggeration you could possibly imagine what what he sees in terms is a sort of political fix to stop the block from falling apart and take the pressure in particular of the german chancellor angela merkel whose political career was in the balance because of this a lot of what they've agreed in this communique is exactly what expected and it's all about keeping people out more support for the libyan coast guard for example strengthening the borders with turkey these sorts of things the surprise package which was dreamt up by emmanuel macron the french president with this idea of what they call holding centers potentially in italy in greece the two countries that most of the refugees come through actually what it is in terms is a win for the hardliners no overall idea of what a common european asylum policy looks like but what it does is appease italy and take all the pressure of angela merkel with joining us now from london is john
spring for deputy director at the center for european reform thanks very much for being with us so is there a problem in the way this whole issue of migration is being framed in europe particularly in economic terms because you know we get it we get all these figures about how germany for example its population is getting older and there is a labor shortage and there is an argument there that it actually needs more people in need more migrants. i think that's absolutely right and one of the big advantages of loss of having a lot of migrants coming into your economy is that it also just helps you fiscally if you've got an aging population and a shrinking working age population and you don't have the tax base to be able to pay for all of the health care and pensions and so forth that the zero people need so bringing in more people will definitely helps what's really important though is that those people are quickly integrated into the labor market into society so that
they find jobs quickly and they they start becoming productive helpful members of society yeah this goes back to this this whole issue of europe's rich subsidizing europe's poor i mean how do you find how do you find some sort of common ground on that i think that germany is is very unwilling to have the kind of transfer union as it's called that a country like italy or most countries have whereby because you raise more taxes from rich people that money gets also many transform transferred in the form of public services and welfare expenditure to poor people germany really does not want that to happen on the on the europeans scale and. anger merkel has tried very hard with a negotiations with macron to stop that from happening and part of the reason for that is it's not just germany it's also a group of countries led by the netherlands which are calling themselves the new hanseatic league who are breathing down anger merkel's neck and saying look we
don't want germany to sign up to that kind of transfer union. there's also of course the issue of tariffs the use looking at to its own set of measures to protect it's still an alum indian industry and that's of course couple coming off to the us imposed tariffs on their metals industry what impact is that likely to have because we've heard enough economists saying that trade was around there are no winners in in trade wars so i mean is this is a case of that they were faced with little choice and the current set of terrace which the trump administration has imposed is not going to be an economic disaster if the european union you know we're talking about tariffs on some basic metals. and the e.u. is not an absolutely huge supplier of these missiles to the us the problem is if the trade war escalates and the us imposes tariffs on cars where
the e.u. has a very big us and sends a lot of costs to the us and it's quite vulnerable to that. i mean it's difficult to say how the e.u. should respond on the one hand if they just said ok trump imposed tariffs on us and we're not going to respond and then it may well just involved in trying to go further particularly if the trade balance between the e.u. and the us does not improve but on the other hand you know if they do escalate the trade war then it might become a kind of fight to the death and we might see some severe restrictions on transatlantic trade which which won't help anyone and so it's a typical economist on the one hand and on the other argument but i think the e.u. is essentially has got no easy options here john's break for good to speak with you thank you. now an iconic motorcycle brand versus donald trump the u.s.
president's trade spat with the e.u. has forced holly davidson to shift gear new e.u. tariffs will raise the average cost per bite by about two thousand dollars so it's moving some production outside the u.s. and with that decision holly became the poster child for the breakdown in u.s. trade relations with the e.u. rob reynolds has more from washington. the growing global trade war is claiming some of its first victims in the u.s. motorcycle maker harley davidson announced it was moving some of its production overseas to avoid steep tariffs imposed by the european union. the e.u. action came after president donald trump slapped tariffs on european steel and aluminum harley davidson says it sold forty thousand motorcycles in europe last year it's not yet clear how many workers will lose their jobs trump tweeted surprised that harley davidson of all companies would be the first to wave the
white flag asked about the wisconsin based manufacturers decision white house spokesperson sarah sanders defended trump's trade policies the european union is attempting to punish u.s. workers with unfair and discriminatory trade policies and president trump will continue to push for free fair and reciprocal trade and hopes that the e.u. will join us in the meanwhile soybean farmers in the midwest are dreading the prospect of china taxing their product in retaliation for trump's tariffs on chinese goods so would be futures are already at their lowest in nearly a decade export twenty five percent of your products any time your stock start talking train ago she mentions it's going to be a big impact on your business. tariffs have gone into effect on u.s. cranberries peanut butter orange juice and levi's jeans also in a blow to european liquor aficionados and american distillers bourbon whiskey has
become costlier from lisbon to warsaw thanks to e.q. retaliatory terrorists twenty five percent price increase is going to put us really expensive compared to other products that are already available in europe made by either european producers or indian or even japanese producers the kentucky distillers association urged trade negotiators to quote sit down over a glass of our signature spirit and resolve their differences. also to come on counting the cost ticket to ride a u.k. court grants a temporary license to operate in london or criticizes what it calls the company's gung ho behavior. of first there's a europe wide shortfall of carbon dioxide why does that matter well c o two is the gas that's used to put the fears into beer and soft drinks it also helps extend the shelf life of meat and other packaged foods it was reported last week as the worst
supply situation to hit the european carbon dioxide business in decades adding the u.k. is the hardest hit country a kuwait saudi arabia and the united arab emirates are teaming up to offer financial aid to neighboring behind concerns of the growing about the state of behinds economy it's located off the coast of saudi arabia but unlike its neighbor it has limited oil supplies and worries about the country's large public debt which now stands at eight hundred nine percent of gross domestic product have been gathering pace the cost of insuring that debt against a default has also been flashing a clear warning signal it's of the highest since records began but most worryingly behind has relatively low levels of foreign exchange reserves so there have been fears around its future ability to pay for essential imports a demand for wood in europe and elsewhere is causing a rainforest in africa to shrink at an alarming rate environmental campaigners are
accusing the largest timber company in the democratic republic of congo of illegally cutting down millions of trees paul chodas jan reports. in the heart of africa the congo basin is home to the world's second largest rain forest but a new investigation accuses timber companies of endangering its existence second in size to the amazon the congolese rain forest to some two million square kilometers it covers six countries including the democratic republic of congo where it's shrinking the fastest the nonprofit global witness says the d r c s biggest timber company north through timber is illegally harvesting trees at nearly ninety percent of its sites with impunity north timber which is portuguese owned denies congolese subsidiary sort of force is breaching its contracts it says the accusations have no basis it acknowledges some management plans may not be in place but that it's talking with the ministry of environment about them global witness is also accusing
importers such as portugal and friends of failing to take action researchers are trying to learn about the forest unique ecosystem before it's too late. these forests are under pressure from humans so we scientists want to categorize the fauna the birds the only thought of this forest before it is destroyed that scientists say the congo rainforest is a source of food and water for tens of millions of people it's also home to six hundred types of trees and ten thousand animal species including endangered ones they say these trees produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide but their ability to reduce greenhouse gases and regulate the climate is decreasing. but example here for example the rainy season normally starts in mid august but now sometimes it begins in july and sometimes in september and when it comes sometimes the water does not rise steadily and then they suddenly recede there's a disorder in the cycle so despite.
