    Trump said his 25% tariffs would be paid by the Chinese, not by Americans. He was wrong, just as he was wrong when he said his proposed border wall would be paid for by Mexico.

    US Steel has lost 70% of its market value since Trump slapped steep tariffs on the metal last year

    France failed to persuade other European Union countries to impose a Europe-wide tax on Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google so France is going it alone, enacting a 3% annual levy on the French revenue of the tech giants.

    Amazon offers a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. The offer may have looked good on paper when it was first proposed but it isn't working out the way Amazon expected.

    Joseph DePinto is the CEO of 7-Eleven and the Chairman of restaurant operator Brinker International. He sits on the board of directors of nine other companies – and he knows a brilliant opportunity to obtain favorable publicity when he sees it.

    7-Eleven is giving $7,111 in college fund money to a baby born on 7/11 at 7:11 p.m.

    "From time to time, Forever 21 surprises our customers with free test products from third parties." That was the official explanation – but I notice people who ordered small-size clothing weren't given free samples of Supragenix Weight Gain Shakes.

    People are blasting Forever 21 for including Atkins bars in plus-size orders

    Realogy Holdings, headquartered in Madison, New Jersey, is the parent company of Century 21, Coldwell Banker, ERA Real Estate and Sotheby's International Realty. Now that Realogy is partnered with Amazon, we can buy a house and have it delivered the next day. I just wonder if Amazon has boxes big enough to put a house in.

    Amazon-Realogy partnership will funnel home buyers to real estate agents

    I predict the day will come when Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile join to form one huge company. It will of course be called VAST.

    Justice Department OKs T-Mobile's $26.5 billion takeover of Sprint despite fears of higher prices and job cuts

    Everybody – except for the President who lives in Trumpworld, the Land of Delusions – knows it is Americans, not the Chinese, who are paying for Trump's tariffs. And is it really "Presidential" to issue White House decisions via Twitter?

    Trump tweets Apple will not receive tariff waivers for Mac Pro parts made in China

    The tagline of Capital One's television commercials is "What's in your wallet?" I'm more worried about what may be in this hacker's wallet.

    A hacker gained access to 100 million Capital One credit card applications and accounts
