The war in Ukraine: Minsk matters
More than 9,500 people have died in the two years since the first deal to end the crisis in Ukraine was signed. The conflict is still festering. Yesterday separatist leaders in the east announced a unilateral ceasefire. Such calm is just the first step in a 13-point plan to end the war, known as the Minsk agreements. But the deal is riddled with loose language. In private, few officials believe it can be fully implemented, writes our Russia correspondent

Investors worry they may be next, writes our South-East Asia correspondent

BEA News Release - Travel and Tourism Spending Accelerated in the Second Quarter - September 14, 2016

 

 
News Release

Wednesday, September 14, 2016
Real spending (output) on travel and tourism accelerated in the second quarter of 2016, increasing at an annual rate of 4.7 percent after increasing 1.2 percent (revised) in the first quarter according to new statistics released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. By comparison, real gross domestic product (GDP) increased 1.1 percent in the second quarter after increasing 0.8 percent in the first.
The leading contributors to the second-quarter acceleration in travel and tourism were “traveler accommodations” and “transportation.”   “Traveler accommodations” turned up after two quarters of decline. The acceleration in “transportation” was driven by an upturn in passenger air transportation services.
Chart 1. Quarterly Growth in Real Tourism Spending
Tourism Prices – Prices for travel and tourism goods and services decelerated in the second quarter of 2016, increasing 1.7 percent following an increase of 3.1 percent (revised) in the first quarter.  The deceleration was mainly attributable to a downturn in prices for “passenger air transportation” and “traveler accommodations.”   “All other transportation” prices accelerated.
Chart 2. Tourism Prices
Tourism EmploymentEmployment in the travel and tourism industries accelerated in the second quarter, increasing 1.4 percent after increasing 0.4 percent in the first quarter. By comparison, overall U.S. nonfarm employment increased 1.3 percent in the second quarter after increasing 1.9 percent in the first.  “Food services and drinking places" was the most significant contributor to travel and tourism employment growth, adding 5.6 thousand employees. “Recreation and entertainment” added 5.2 thousand employees.
Chart 3. Tourism Employment
Total Tourism-Related Output was $1.6 trillion in the second quarter of 2016. It consisted of $934.9 billion (57 percent) of direct tourism spending and $692.6 billion (43 percent) of indirect tourism-related spending.
Total Tourism-Related Employment was 7.6 million jobs in the second quarter of 2016, unchanged from the first quarter, and consisted of 5.4 million (71 percent) direct tourism jobs and 2.2 million (29 percent) indirect tourism-related jobs.

These statistics are from BEA’s Travel and Tourism Satellite Accounts (TTSAs), which are supported by funding from the Office of Travel and Tourism Industries, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce. The current-price statistics of direct tourism output were derived from BEA’s annual TTSAs and from current-price quarterly statistics of personal consumption expenditures from the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPAs). The real statistics of direct tourism output were developed using price indexes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and real quarterly statistics of personal consumption expenditures from the NIPAs. The statistics of direct tourism employment were derived from the annual TTSAs from BEA, the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW), and Current Employment Statistics (CES) from BLS.

The big story

Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc will not move with Bake Off to Channel 4, but what about Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry?

The impending crumbling of the presenting quartet that helped make Bake Off such a success will have turned Channel 4’s surprise £25m deal to air the next three series slightly sour. It’s a lot of dough, after all, to pay for something without one of the key ingredients.
But while what happens to Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry will be the next big concern for Channel 4, it also raises big issues for the future of the BBC.
As Mark Lawson writes, in a world where most BBC productions are opened up for competition, it’s more important than ever that the corporation manages to make some of its biggest hits in house, something of which BBC Studios boss Mark Linsey will be keenly aware.

Best of the rest

And finally...

As one of, if not the, biggest show in the UK, each episode of Bake Off spurs huge volumes of social media contributions. But going by Twitter’s reaction to the news last night of Sue and Mel’s departure it seems that it doesn’t even have to be on our TV screens to get people reaching for their phones.
