  14. It is only a few days into the U.S. government’s blockbuster antitrust trial against AT&T, but Judge Richard Leon appears to be growing frustrated. On Tuesday he said it is “a little unsettling” that so much of the trial will focus on what AT&T and its rivals think will happen if it is allowed to acquire Time Warner. “This is about who’s the better guesser,” he said. “I guess in this case I have to get a crystal ball, maybe at one of those second-hand stores. It’s crazy.” The rivals that the DOJ will call to testify about the (perceived) harmful effects of the merger include Comcast-NBC, Charter, Google YouTube, Sony Playstation, RCN, CenturyLink, and CableOne. That is raising some eyebrows. Comcast’s 2011 acquisition of NBC was itself a vertical merger of the sort AT&T is pursuing with Time Warner. Do they know something we don’t? View the full article

  18. Good afternoon from the WSJ City desks in London. WSJ City is the app that delivers concise, smart news on business and finance for mobile. Download for iPhone or Android. Here’s essential reading on today’s developments. MUST READS FROM WSJ CITY All eyes are on the new Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell, who has been chairing his first policy meeting. The outcome is likely to be a quarter percentage-point raise to short-term interest rates. But the big questions will be around unemployment, inflation, economic growth and interest rates in the years ahead. Here’s what to watch when the Fed releases its statement at 2pm EDT. The European Union unveiled sweeping new legislative proposals to raise taxes on big technology companies, in some of the Europe’s most-aggressive measures to target the perceived excesses of a small cadre of tech superpowers, including Facebook and Google. Why This Matters: The move risks angering US officials when trans-Atlantic relations are already strained by an escalating trade spat. The US warned last week against imposing tax measures that single out digital companies. Among Facebook’s growing list of new problems is a decidedly unfamiliar one: how to recruit and retain the the best staff. Until recently, the company could offer the stability of a giant corporation as well as the prospect of working for a rapidly growing company. Its tarnished image might weaken that proposition, writes Dan Gallagher for Heard on the Street. The chief executives of America’s biggest companies are on track for another banner year of compensation, fuelled by a soaring stock market and an improving economy. Half of the US’s top executives are in line to receive a pay rise of just under 10%, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis. Spotify’s shares are set to begin trading on April 3. But fewer than one-third of them will be immediately available for sale. The move appears to be a way to impose some limits on its largely untested method of going public. Why This Matters: Without a bank to backstop and stabilise Spotify’s trading on the first day, limiting the available supply of stock could be seen as a move to curb potential downward volatility for a stock that is expected to see healthy demand. US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told House lawmakers concerned about a brewing trade war that Trump administration actions against China were necessary because the World Trade Organization is ‘wholly inadequate’ to deal with Beijing’s state-dominated economy.

Shares in Facebook rallied, gaining more than 2% after reports that CEO Mark Zuckerberg will break his silence on the user-data controversy within the next 24 hours. Energy stocks surged alongside oil prices after a weekly report showed a surprise fall in US crude inventories. Ahead of the Fed, the dollar slipped and Treasury yields were steady.Equities closed lower on the other side of the Atlantic, where Deutsche Bank was among the worst performers. The bank shed 4.9% after reports that its finance chief had warned about headwinds to first-quarter revenues. The Stoxx Europe 600 fell 0.2%, and London’s FTSE 100 lost 0.3%. View the full article

Germany Rules Out Economic Shift Amid Pressure From Trump: Germany’s new finance minister ruled out a shift in fiscal policy that would help Europe’s largest economy reduce its yawning trade surplus with the rest of the world, closing a possible avenue to resolve the unfolding trade conflict with the U.S. Facebook’s Lax Data Policies Led to Cambridge Analytica Crisis: Facebook’s loose approach to policing how app creators and others deployed its user data persisted for years, including after a 2015 effort by the social network to restrict access. Cambridge Analytica Suspends CEO Alexander Nix After Video’s Release: Cambridge Analytica suspended its chief executive, Alexander Nix, and said it is launching an independent investigation to determine if the company engaged in any wrongdoing in its work on political campaigns. Trade Consensus Eludes G-20 Meeting, As Ministers Focus on U.S. Tariffs: Finance ministers and central bankers from the Group of 20 countries failed to reach a new agreement on trade, amid a deepening split between the U.S. and other major economies over Washington’s plans to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum.
