Prince Charles will launch an ambitious project to help financial markets become more sustainable during a visit to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland today.

As part of this push on Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned that Italy and Britain could face USA tariffs if they pursue taxes on large digital companies like Facebook and Alphabet's Google. "They are the heirs of yesterday's foolish fortune tellers. and they want to see us do badly". But honestly, I don't think I have once seen any media outlets or person in power communicate this and what it means.

'We are already seeing some tentative signs of stabilisation but we have not reached a turning point yet, ' said International Monetary Fund chief Kristalina Georgieva. But he noted that the economy wasn't doing badly when he took office.

Greta Thunberg breaks from panel question to read data on climate change: "I know you don't want to talk about this".

Trump's first Davos appearance in 2018 oscillated between a vintage, raucous version of Trump in meetings with national leaders and business executives and more subdued remarks in his formal speech. Ivanka stood behind her father while he spoke to the press, nodding her head in support of the US President but her expression appeared slightly terrified.

Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido - who declared himself acting president previous year - will be attending the forum in defiance of a travel ban imposed by the regime of President Nicolas Maduro. Under the deal, each country sets goals to curb emissions of heat-trapping gasses that lead to climate change. McDonald's has borne the brunt of severe criticism due to being viewed as the epicenter of mass produced food and is one of the largest buyers of beef in the world, an industry that has been targeted by climate activists in the past.

"My generation will not give up without a fight", she proclaimed.

Trump's participation at the forum provided another conspicuous split-screen moment in his presidency. Before entering the hall to deliver his speech, Trump called the trial "disgraceful" and part of "the witch hunt that's been going on for years".

Asked whether Trump would watch the impeachment trial from Davos, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said, "He has a full day here in Davos, but will be briefed by staff periodically".

Trump spent almost all of his approximately 30-minute speech talking about how the U.S. economy has performed under his leadership.

He told a packed auditorium that trade deals struck this month with China and Mexico represented a model and took his biggest swipe yet at the Federal Reserve, whose policies he says are holding back the USA economy.

However he cautioned that to "embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse".

Mr Stiglitz said: "He managed to say absolutely zero on climate change".
