    China buys Indian cotton as prices at home jump: industry officials

    Indian traders have signed contracts to ship 800,000 bales of cotton to China as demand surged from the world's biggest consumer of the fibre due to a rally in prices in China, industry officials told Reuters. The exports from the world's biggest cotton producer will help China in augmenting supplies, but could weigh on global prices. "Chinese buyers were very active in the market in last few days," said Atul Ganatra, president of the Cotton Association of India (CAI).

    China keeps LNG off tariff list for now, could be trade weapon later

    China's omission of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its vast list of U.S. products that face hefty import duties from Friday has preserved a potential weapon should the trade war with Washington deepen. It also underscores Beijing's desire to ensure supplies of gas as it pushes to switch millions of households and businesses away from using coal as a key part of its 'war on pollution'. China will on Friday impose tariffs on $34 billion of U.S. goods from pork to soybeans to cotton in retaliation for a similar move by Washington as trade relations sour between the world's top two economies.

    The Dow dumped General Electric, its last original index member

    In 1896, Charles Dow created what came to be known as the Dow Jones Industrial Average—an index consisting of just 12 companies at the time, meant to signal the state of the industrial sector. Nestled among outfits focused on cotton, sugar, tobacco, and railroads was General Electric, then a four-year-old electric company. Today, some 122…

    Every so often, people stumble across an absurd piece of fashion and revel in the joy of calling it out online.

    Wars, not just genius, fuelled Britain’s industrial revolution

    Conventional wisdom says Britain’s transformation in the 18th century from an agrarian economy to an industrial one was largely midwifed by technological innovation and mechanisation, as symbolised by the steam engine and the cotton factories, respectively. However, in a new book titled Empire of Guns, Priya Satia, a professor of British history at Stanford University,…

    Before you go shopping for spring, clean out your closet

    Nothing gives me the “I wants” quite like springtime. I want a ruffled dress, a cotton-and-linen suit, orchid-pink clogs, a million bodysuits, and so on. But the fact is, these wants have less to do with any lack in my closet than the fact that I can’t see what’s in there. It’s just too stuffed.…

    In a disposable age, luxury is something old, worn, and beautiful

    It’s not fun to wear old-fashioned, 100% cotton denim in its “raw” unwashed state. It’s stiff, like cardboard. It tends to crease rather than fold. It’s constricting and rough against the skin. Most of the jeans you’ll find in stores today weren’t worn in for decades before softening into their current form. They’re washed to…
