believe as i'm to nelda milan in berlin welcome now it may be friday the 13th not the most auspicious day for the superstitious but don't tell the markets the dow jones is ending in positive territory after news that china is going to accept u.s. soybeans and part from its next round of tariffs that follows an exchange of concessions earlier this week between the 2 countries china agreed to exclude products like ounce or drugs and pesticides from its tariff regime the u.s. in turn agreed to delay a plan terrifying on october 1 by 15 days. yes court joins us now from wall street yes how big of a deal is it that the u.s. and china are exchanging some all of branches here and there well i mean at least we have those some guests and there is a certain possibility they have to maybe those trade talks might leads to
a deal at some point there was a lot of speculation of actually washing might be open for an interim deal and so that some of the tougher issues between the 2 countries might be pushed aside that there's no confirmation for that but there is some speculation and that actually did tell put to drive the markets higher for the entire week now on top of all of that the upcoming week will have plenty to occupy investors' minds can you give us an outlook. well i mean the biggest. issue is going to be monetary policy so when the federal reserve is going to meet on wednesday and the bets on another raid decrease actually stands at 100 percent so the only question seems to be if the federal reserve is going to cut rates by $25.00 or by 50 basis points and then also we had to the dow jones
industrial average up for 8 consecutive trading days so this is the longest winning streak in more than a year and we have only about one percent of new record so we could have had new all time highs here on wall street next week and part of there on wall street for us thank you very much euro zone finance ministers met today in finland capital of helsinki mainly to discuss ways to improve public spending in the bloc but finnish finance minister. had another key agenda point he said the european union should consider a boycott of brazilian agricultural products to get the government there to properly tackle the amazon fires into law said that his country that his country has asked authorities to discontinue the in parts of the from brazil he added that he was considering doing the same about soybeans with the aim of quote increasing pressure to spur the government into action. to barbie now well
love or hate her she's an american success story 1st sold in 1959 millions of dollars have made their way into the rooms of millions of children but as much as the dolls were a hit there was always controversy around the 1st over her super slim figure representing an impossible and unhealthy ideal of beauty that over conservative stereotypes produced by the doll who was often depicted as a housewife. lack of diversity was also a problem one that not tell has grappled with today are because in a range of different skin tones comes from different countries and there are dolls meant to inspire girls to choose any career they want like astronaut barbie over here or critics are calling the company's latest stall another misstep or talking about that the barbie. the new barbie is unveiled
she is wearing a black mermaid style dress decorated with monarch butterflies and roses her face is adorned with calaveras katrina makeup inspired by mexico's did in one of those dolls hit stores a few weeks before the solemn november holiday on which mexicans remember their dead. on line commentators are asking if the 75 dollars dollar is a case of cultural appropriation where companies inappropriately cash in on other people's traditions mattel disagrees. we're going to at the end what we want to represent is a very important mexican tradition and the law of the transmits to us. collectors on hand for the official unveiling feel the same they look as you say it is an honor that they look at the mexican traditions to release and does that which is also really quite beautiful goodness that's not something the us everybody could do also that came on full of them both simple that yes or no. appropriate or not
there's heated discussion on social media. as for mattel the company helped the design was simply boosted sales. joining me now is julia romero from the w. spanish service she's been following the story for us thanks so much for joining us now you are from mexico the other where this barbie is it inappropriate is it appropriate what do you think i think is interesting more than a fair and appropriate i think is really interesting why do you say that. because in recent times especially since the coco movie for some bowl there has been several attempts of giving a place out of this new movie or from pixar out of a bit of that exact exactly of the words as it's been in the mainstream media it's been depicted as something that is very special and is very dear to the mexican people and i think and i think this is very interesting that now mattel is bringing
a doll that is also showing children that is ok to have this heritage that it's ok to see that and it is normal and i think it depicts also the very important mexican american identity which is for me very interesting that they're doing this but where do you think the controversy is coming from because on the one hand you do have this argument from the companies out there raising cultural awareness among children i suppose the sticking point would be whether it's ok to make money off of it what do you think well i think there's a lot of companies which make money of cultural appropriation but not everyone not every company gives credit to where it came from the designs for example most specifically to the to the clothing so astri there's been make a says of fashion companies taking directly design from mexican artists and not even in any way doing money with it but not giving credit also to the to where it came from so i think
there's there are some red lines between celebrating a culture and and then taking a design and use it and make profits without even saying where it came from because in the end that is the theft of a culture so to say exactly and well i wanted to ask you so there's your viewpoint but what sort of reactions have you seen from people say in mexico who do celebrate the day of the dead do they see this positively while some of some people see it as a very positive thing so some people are afraid that the marches will be watered down through the. the barbie doll some people are very skeptical of it they think now a barbie doll is not going to really water down the traditions which are already very makes with the halloween traditions of the united states so it's not that it's a tradition that has been intact from what worried the gain and without change over time so so so people are live of more concern about that but other people are saying no it all is not going to really change this very very rich heritage very
