    Warren Buffett: Economic impact of COVID-19 not over yet
    Legendary billionaire and investor Warren Buffett believes the COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet. All over the world, there is a struggle with the negative economic consequences that affect small businesses the worst.
    "Its not over. I mean, in terms of the unpredictability...its been very unpredictable, but its worked out better than people anticipated for most people and most businesses. And its just, for no fault of their own, its just decimated all kinds of people and their hopes," Buffett stressed. "The economic impact has been this extremely uneven thing where ... many hundreds of thousands or millions of small businesses have been hurt in a terrible way, but most of the big companies have overwhelmingly done fine," the Berkshire Hathaway CEO added.
    At the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, global health experienced a crisis. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic also cut a deadly swath across America, which led to a shutdown of the US economy. The blow inflicted on the economy could be compared only to the Great Depression.
    In the first quarter of 2020, US GDP nosedived by an impressive 31.4%. Many small businesses were forced to close and their customers turned to large retailers and online services.
    However, the pandemic has not disappeared in a year and the complete victory over the deadly virus is far away, Buffet believes. He argues that the world has learned an invaluable lesson because of the pandemic. Despite our technology and medicine, humanity still has a low level of preparation for emergency situations.
    Currently, the COVID-19 delta strain is rampant in 92 countries of the world. According to Buffett, it will become the dominant variant of the coronavirus worldwide. In the United States, its spread is lightning fast. The number of cases doubles every two weeks.

    Global minimum corporate tax: 130 countries to back project
    According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), 130 countries are ready to join a large-scale project concerning the crypto world. The project is aimed at the introduction of international taxation rules for the companies that use cryptocurrencies.
    Experts suppose that such rules will not allow international enterprises to avoid taxes. The key idea of the project is to make corporations pay taxes in the country where they receive profit. A global minimum corporate income tax will total 15%. What is more, the number of tax havens is likely to reduce, as this requirement is mandatory for every country.
    French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire welcomed the project as the most important international tax deal reached in a century. Key details about a proposed global minimum corporate tax rate and exemptions from the agreement will then have to be cleared up before the next G20 meeting in October, he said. "I ask them to do everything to join this historical agreement which is largely supported by most countries," he added.
    Economists have been working on the project for several years. They believe that it is the right time to implement new laws, as this will provide countries with additional funds that could be used to support economies amid the pandemic. The new tax is estimated to generate around $150 billion annually.

    EU unemployment hits men harder than women
    The European Central Bank revealed results of a survey showing that the COVID-19 pandemic caused massive layoffs of male workers in 2020. The survey was held in European countries.
    Reportedly, more men became unemployed compared to women. The data provided by the ECB came as a surprise to analysts. Most experts anticipated that the crisis will affect women to a greater extent, as statistically more of them work in industries harmed by the coronavirus aftermath.
    By the end of the last year, the eurozone labor market shed 3 million jobs. Remarkably, men accounted for over 60% of those who lost their jobs. They were mainly employed in the retail and wholesale sectors. At the same time, women working in the services sector took the hardest blow. Overall, 1.9 million men and 1.2 million women became unemployed, the ECB survey said. According to experts, it was easier for women to find a new job. Due to that, the gender gap in the labor market has noticeably narrowed.

    Neither exports from Iran nor new COVID strain to hurt oil rally?
    Amid the rapid rally in the global oil market, the benchmark grades have leapt almost twice over the last 8 months that caught market participants off-guard. Back in late 2020, analysts polled by Reuters did not assume that Brent crude would approach the level of $60 a barrel.
    Experts at Goldman Sachs came up with bold forecasts, predicting that oil prices would stand at $57.50 a barrel in Q2 2021. More cautious analysts did not dare to forecast price levels over $40 a barrel for Brent crude. The current situation has changed drastically. In the median forecast made by Reuters in July 2021, the average price of the North Sea benchmark grade is expected at the level of $67.48 a barrel later in the year. So, analysts upgraded their forecasts from $64.70 predicted in May. Commodity experts project global energy demand to grow by 5-7 million barrels per day for 2021.
    Brent crude topped $75 a barrel in June. Analysts expect a further rally in the oil market on the back of increasing demand for petroleum products. According to estimates of president at Stratas Advisors John Paisie, the average Brent price could remain at near $75 a barrel in Q3 2021. Brent crude is likely to trade at $78.50 a barrel on average in 2022. The expert is certain about the bullish overall trend in the global oil market.
    Commodity experts at Goldman Sachs suppose that Brent crude could climb as high as $80 a barrel in Q3 this year. The global energy market is on the verge of the most serious shortage since the summer of 2020, they pinpoint the reason for the steady uptrend.
    In a Reuters poll, analysts warn that the oil rally could be disrupted by a revival of a nuclear deal between the US and Iran. If such a scenario comes true, Iran will flood the global market with its crude oil. Another headwind for the oil market is growing rates of coronavirus cases so that global energy demand is still lagging behind pre-pandemic levels.
    According to estimates of experts, Iran will be able to supply the global market with 1-2 million barrels per day in the nearest six months. The question is whether Saudi Arabia and other major oil exporters will tolerate such fierce competition. With the new powerful oil supplier, it would be difficult for them to hold the reins of joint oil supplies within the framework of the OPEC+ pact.

    Microsoft warns users of hacker attack
    Microsoft has warned its users of a hacker attack. As a result of the breach, hackers won access to one of the companys customer services.
    The tech company says hacker group Nobelium is responsible for the attack. Earlier, the US authorities claimed that Nobelium had ties with Russia's intelligence services. In fact, the group is believed to be the same actor behind the SolarWinds attack. Meanwhile, Russia denied involvement in the SolarWinds hack.
    Microsoft said it detected information-stealing malware on a machine belonging to one of our customer support agents with access to basic account information for a small number of customers. yber criminals used this data to launch further hacker attacks against Microsoft users. The IT giant has already warned the affected customers from the US, the UK, and other countries, urging them to be extra careful when messaging about financial operations. On top of that, Microsoft recommended that users change their personal data and emails.

    Climate risks come in focus of central banks
    The 2021 Global Sovereign Asset Management Study, conducted by Invesco, has found out that 63% of central banks believe that "tackling climate change falls within their mandate". Nearly half believe that mitigating the consequences of climate change should be a monetary policy objective.
    The asset manager surveyed 141 chief investment officers at a mix of sovereign wealth funds and central banks. Importantly, 45% of respondents wholeheartedly supported the statement that "tackling climate change falls within the mandate of central banks." 24% of respondents disagree with this statement and 31% remain neutral.
    "The past 12 months have seen the dial shift on these objectives like we have seen with no other study," the report said. The authors of the study believe that the reasons for the shift on environmental issues were the creation of ESG by the European Central Bank, as well as the reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. "The pandemic has definitely accelerated the ESG focus, "Rod Ringrow, Invesco head of official institutions, pointed out. What were seeing is a greater social conscience and the need to incorporate it now as a matter of course and the pandemic may have been the catalyst to this build back better approach."
    The Invesco study also revealed that for sovereign funds, climate risks were in third place. Earlier, in June 2021, Adele Renaud-Basso, the President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), announced that they may increase investments (up to 40%) for environmental projects by the end of this year.

    G20 endorses deal on global minimum corporate tax
    On July 12, G20 countries reportedly approved the proposal to introduce a global corporate tax. The finance ministers and central bank governors of the world's 20 biggest economies supported the idea to ensure that transnational corporations pay taxes in countries where they make profits rather than in low-tax jurisdictions of their own choice.
    After the meeting of G20 leaders, it was announced that the parties had come to a compromise on that issue. We have achieved a historical agreement on a new, fair, and stable international tax architecture, the participants pointed out.
    Earlier this month, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development announced that more than 100 countries had backed plans to reform the international tax system. Interestingly, the members of the organization have developed it for almost 10 years.
    According to the OECD, the working group includes 139 members, joined by 130 countries and jurisdictions. A detailed implementation plan is set to be finalized by October 2021.
    Besides, G20 leaders call on other states to support this initiative. They believe that this would help implement the plan faster and more efficiently.

    Food imports to face hard times
    According to Reuters, in the near future, states that buy large volumes of food abroad may face serious obstacles: a rapid increase in global food prices and an uptick in shipping costs.
    Following experts' calculations, this year, the delivery of grain and oilseeds by sea costs almost twice as much as last year. Large expenses are associated with the rise in the cost of fuel and the downtime of most ships. Due to the COVID-19 restrictors and additional checkouts, they have to stay in ports more than planned.
    Finn Siebell, an economist at National Australia Bank, highlights that transport costs have become a challenge for the economy due to the rising prices of grain crops. Buyers in Asian countries suffered the most, experts emphasize. Notably, these states are the main consumers of agricultural products.
    In 2021, the cost of exporting grain from Australia to Southeast Asia doubled to $30 per ton, compared with $15 recorded in 2020. Delivery of such goods from the Pacific Northwest of the United States costs $55 per ton compared to $25 per ton in 2020, and from the Black Sea coast amounts to $65 per ton. Last year, it totaled $35 per ton.
    Large spending on cargo transportation has become a serious problem for the authorities of some countries. Constant control over the level of inflation amid a record rise in the cost of food has only aggravated the situation. In May 2021, an uptick in food prices was the highest in the last 10 years.

    Founder of Chinas battery supplier CATL joins Asia's billionaire club
    According to Bloomberg, Zeng Yuqun, founder of Contemporary Amperex Technology, the worlds biggest electric-vehicle battery maker, has overtaken Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma in the wealth rankings. His net worth has reached an impressive $49.5 billion, thus making him one of the five richest people in Asia.
    Zeng Yuqun's fortune surged thanks to a partnership with Tesla. In February 2020, he signed a two-year agreement to supply batteries to the US carmaker, which was subsequently extended for several years. Chinas intention to phase out diesel and petrol cars also contributed to his wealth rise. The combination of these factors helped CATLs stock soar by 55%.
    "The billionaire ranking used to be dominated by real estate tycoons and later tech entrepreneurs, and now we are seeing more from the new energy sector," Hao Gao, director of Tsinghua Universitys NIFR Global Family Business Research Center, said. "As the industry leader for electric-vehicle batteries, CATL will benefit most from the carbon emission goal," he added.
    Notably, in the first five months of 2021, global electric-vehicle battery sales doubled from the previous year. CATL accounted for 31.2% of the whole market. In China, electric vehicle retail sales increased by 9.8% to 1.11 million units in 2020 compared to a year earlier.

    Apple stock price at its record high
    On July 9, the price of Apples stock exceeded its historic high and reached $145.13 per share. The previous record was set on January 25, 2021 when the shares of the IT giant gained 1.42%, hitting $145.27 per share 1. Nowadays, Apple is considered the world's most valuable company with a market cap of $2.4 trillion. In the period from July 5 to July 9, Apple shares posted a new record. Thus, on July 7, their price was the highest since January 25, 2021. Notably, there were no important events that could drastically influence the value of the companys stocks.
