  • IPO mania: Saudi Aramco prepares for controversial stock debut

    Saudi Aramco has begun the process of launching its initial public offering, or sale of shares to the public. The state-run oil giant has delayed its IPO several times since first announcing it in 2016. In a last-minute twist, most shares will be marketed to domestic investors, rather than international ones. So what exactly do we know about the Saudi oil behemoth? We take a closer look.

  • Saudi Aramco's IPO gets off to a rocky start

Saudi Aramco is now valued at between $1.6 and $1.7 trillion, falling short of the $2 trillion mark Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had sought.

  • What's the deal with oil? Saudi Arabia's about-face on OPEC (part 2)

    Will OPEC really tighten production? Is Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil producer, really feeling the pinch? It's just announced austerity measures but still sits on a massive sovereign wealth fund. What does that money buy when you see the U.S. congress overriding a presidential veto on suing the Saudis over links to 9/11? Finally, it's not just our dependence on Saudi oil... but oil in general. Even in France, one in four cars sold is now a gas-guzzling SUV.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
