Tech regulation was back in the spotlight after the European Union fined Google a record 4.34 billion euro (about $5 billion).

Amazon U.K. became the first business to issue such a warning, the newspaper reported, adding that it was given at a meeting on Friday organized by Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab.

It might not make you Daddy Warbucks anymore, but a million dollars still is a pretty exclusive level of wealth. Only 5.8% of the country, or about 7.2 million households, qualify as actual millionaires. To reach that bar, you must have investable assets of $1 million or more, excluding the value of real estate, employer-sponsored retirement plans and business partnerships. When imagining where America's millionaires live, most people probably think of California and New York. But although those states have their fair share of millionaires in terms of raw numbers, they don't have the highest concentrations of rich households. It turns out there are numerous states with higher percentages of well-off households than New York or California, several of which probably will surprise you. And don't forget that between living costs and taxes, a million dollars goes much further in some states than others. Here's a look at the millionaire ratings for all 50 states (and the District of Columbia), based on the percentage of millionaire households in each. Just for good measure, we're also providing the richest residents of each state, as well as important tax and cost-of-living information.

Blue Origin is a privately funded aerospace manufacturer and spaceflight service company based in Kent, Washington, and is the brainchild of Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos. Founded in 2000, the company aims to take private consumers to space.

In early February, the stock market was in sell-off mode because inflation and rate hikes were pushing up fixed income yields, which was increasing borrowing costs and pressuring equity valuations. Such inflation concerns have largely moved into the rear-view mirror. History suggests that despite an inverted yield curve, the stock market should do just fine for the next 12-plus months.
SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Big companies in the United States from Amazon.com Inc to Toyota Motor Corp and Alcoa Corp are working to counter the effect of the Trump administration's trade policies and to head off new tariffs. Companies are attempting to avoid any confrontation with U.S. President Donald Trump but want to exert as much influence as they can to dissuade him from tearing up trade agreements or introducing tariffs on a wide swath of imports. Amazon, the world's largest online retailer and cloud-computing company, which could be hurt by tariffs on items sold through its website and components for its data centers, is discussing industry-wide advertising campaigns and more extensive government lobbying, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
