Business News Headlines 29 June 2018

GM said today that if the tariffs continue it could become a much smaller company and that would mean jobs. The markets, sort of, rebounded today but investors still jittery. Speaking of tariffs Canada was back in the news. City Bank says they are sorry and then coughs up $335 million...not because they wanted to. It's the last gasp for Toys R Us and a Des Moines company calls it quits after nearly 150 years in business and it's not because business isn't good. Those stories and the markets right here on YOUR time.
