    Real Time Economics 1449m

    WASHINGTON—The Federal Reserve, faced with persistent upward pressure in short-term interest-rate markets, made a fourth technical adjustment Wednesday to a key rate it uses to influence the economy.

    The Fed lowered the interest on excess reserves rate, or IOER, more than it decreased its federal-funds target rate range. The change occurred at a meeting where officials lowered the fed-funds range for a second time this year, moving it down by a quarter percentage point to between 1.75% and 2%.

    Canada’s embattled Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion Tuesday won its second and third appellate court victories in five months against opponents in British Columbia (BC), marking a win for Alberta oilsands exports.

    The BC Court of Appeal ruled against the Squamish Nation and City of Vancouver. Both protest lawsuits failed to overturn approval of the C$9 billion ($6.8 billion) project by the BC Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO).

    The court ordered the BCEAO to review and, if necessary, adjust its 37 pipeline expansion conditions to match the 157 requirements in the second round of project approvals by the Canadian Energy Regulator and federal cabinet.

    The verdict said the BCEAO fulfilled the limited duty of provincial agencies to consult and accommodate indigenous communities affected by projects that fall under federal jurisdiction. Vancouver’s lawsuit was dismissed as a late afterthought to a public regulatory process that the city government...

    (Reuters) - Novartis AG’s (NOVN.S) Sandoz unit said on Wednesday it was halting distribution of its versions of the drug commonly known as Zantac in all its markets, including the United States and Canada, after contaminants were found in the heartburn drug.

    The Swiss drugmaker’s steps follow an investigation by U.S. and European regulators into the presence of the impurity, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), in the drug, ranitidine, and a distribution halt in Canada announced late Tuesday.

    Health Canada said it had requested makers of the drug to stop distribution as it gathers more information and consults with international health regulators.

    Branded versions of the drug such as Sanofi SA’s (SASY.PA) Zantac are available for over-the-counter sale in Canada, while generic versions are available for sale both OTC and with prescription.

    Saudi Arabia subscribed today to the International Monetary Fund’s Special Data Dissemination Standard (SDDS), marking a major step forward for official statistics in the country.

    Mr. Louis Marc Ducharme, Chief Statistician and Data Officer, and Director of the Statistics Department of the IMF congratulated the authorities for this major milestone in the country’s statistical development. “The subscription to the SDDS underscores Saudi Arabia’s strong commitment to data transparency as well as to...
