(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service … China on Thursday said an escalation in trade conflict with the United States is not in the interest of either side. So, is a deal between the dueling trade partners likely to come before an announcement of more tariffs on Chinese imports to America? Then, economists expect Turkey’s central bank to raise rates to 20 percent on Thursday, but the country’s president just hours before called for a rate cut. We’ll explore what’s at stake. Afterwards, all this week we've been looking at the impact of the financial crisis a decade later. Thursday, we examine how the collapse changed housing fortunes for many, particularly for a group of young adults dubbed "Generation Rent.” Today's show is sponsored by Battelle (Battelle.org/QI), GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com) and Indeed (indeed.com/marketplace).

Property developers around the world are capitalizing on "Generation Rent."
Tipi is among several property companies capitalizing on the rent-for-longer issue fueling a pre-existing housing shortage in Britain’s capital. The company is in the process of constructing a large-scale campus with dozens of buildings that will add 7,500 new rental units to the market. This photo from Tipi shows a prospective look at an apartment space.
