ECB President urges govts to stay 'committed' to reducing public debt


The European Central Bank President, Christine Lagarde, warns governments against adding to their public debt, as they look to ease the pressure on households and businesses from soaring energy costs. "Governments should pursue fiscal policies that show they are committed to gradually bringing down high public debt ratios," she says during a news conference, adding that policymakers should pick measures that are "temporary and targeted at the most vulnerable".

  • Austin Mayor Urges Residents To 'Stay Home' From Cabo Timeshare

    The mayor of Austin, Texas, told his constituents on a video call last month to 'stay home' and avoid unnecessary travel. The message was a bid to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus in the city and across Texas, as COVID-19 patients are already overwhelming hospitals. But according to Business Insider, Mayor Steve Adler, a Democrat, neglected to mention where he was when he filmed the public service announcement. In fact, he was speaking from a timeshare in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to which he'd flown on a private jet shared with eight other family members and guests. The day before the flight, Adler had hosted a wedding for his daughter, with 20 attending. As of Wednesday, more than 13.8 million Americans have tested positive for coronavirus and over 272,400 have died. Texas is the second worst-hit state in the US. It's surpassed 1.25 million cases and 22,100 deaths.
