(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service …  China has warned the U.S. there will be "consequences" if the U.S. does not withdraw the latest sanctions it has imposed on China's military – over defense and military deals it struck with Russia. In a blow to Indonesia's huge palm oil industry, the Economy Ministry has extended a ban on new factories, continuing to blame the sector for environmental damage. Dockless bike sharing schemes seem to work in China, so we find out why not so much in Europe or the U.S. And North Korea is planning on expanding its cosmetics industry. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com) and Indeed (indeed.com/marketplace). (09/21/2018)
