  • It's over: Britain files for divorce from the European Union

    The United Kingdom has filed for divorce from the European Union, overturning four decades of integration with its neighbors

    LONDON (AP) -- The United Kingdom filed for divorce from the European Union on Wednesday, overturning four decades of integration with its neighbors, demolishing the notion that EU expansion is inevitable and shaking the foundations of a bloc that is facing challenges to its identity and its place in the world.

    Britain's top envoy to the EU, Tim Barrow, hand-delivered a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk formally triggering a two-year countdown to the final split.

    "Today the government acts on the democratic will of the British people," Prime Minister Theresa May told lawmakers in the House of Commons, adding, "This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back."

    Tusk tweeted that "after nine months the U.K. has delivered," followed by a photo of Barrow handing him the letter in front of British and EU flags in Brussels.

    There is "no reason to pretend this is a happy

  • The Latest: EU Parliament: UK trade talks would violate law

    The European Parliament will be insisting that it's against European Union law if Britain starts negotiating trade agreements with individual nations before it has fully withdrawn from the bloc

    LONDON (AP) -- The Latest on Brexit (all times local):

    2:15 p.m.

    The European Parliament will be insisting that it's against European Union law if Britain starts negotiating trade agreements with individual nations before it has fully withdrawn from the bloc.

    In a resolution planned to be made public late Wednesday but obtained by The Associated Press, the legislators say that "it would be contrary to Union law for the United Kingdom to begin, in advance of its withdrawal, negotiations on possible trade agreements with third countries."

    The resolution, warning against divisions among the remaining 27 members, goes further by adding that "any bilateral arrangement between one or several remaining Member States" and Britain without explicit agreement of the 27 would also go against EU treaties.

  • Converse CEO shares his 3 favorite business books

    Converse CEO Davide Grasso is "an omnivore when it comes to reading," he tells CNBC. "I read pretty much anything that comes to me, from sports and culture magazines to poetry and Edgar Allan Poe short stories."

    "It's a good mental exercise," he says. "It keeps my mind agile."

    When it comes to business books, three in particular have shaped his impressive career.

    "Judgment," by Noel Tichy and Warren Bennis

    Of Tichy and Bennis's book, Grasso says, "It boils down to the fact that after we know all the techniques — after we know all of the operational procedures and we have evaluated all the quantitatives and even the intangibles — at the end of the day, key decisions are always driven by judgment."

    The authors, who have spent decades studying leadership and advising top CEOs such as Jack Welch and Howard Schultz , teach you how to make the tough calls when the stakes are high.

    World stock markets are subdued after Britain triggered the start of its exit from the European Union

  • FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Two managers of a German Ponzi property scheme who became notorious for throwing parties with models, fast cars and even an elephant have been sentenced to 8 1/2 years in prison, a Frankfurt court said on Wednesday.

    The founders of S&K were convicted of breach of trust for operating a pyramid scheme in which they funnelled 240 million euros ($258 million) from 11,000 investors into their own accounts to finance a lavish lifestyle.

    In a 3,200-page complaint, prosecutors described the racketeering of Stephan Christoph Schaefer and Jonas Koeller, who were arrested in 2013 after 1,200 investigators searched the S&K premises and its roughly 150 affiliated companies.

    Raiding police found numerous bags filled with coins that which at least one of the defendants had used for bathing in money, much like cartoon billionaire character Uncle Scrooge, according to prosecutors at the 110-day trial.

  • Firms demand EU deal ensures their survival as May triggers Brexit

    By Costas Pitas

    LONDON (Reuters) - Carmakers and airlines easyJet and Ryanair demanded Britain secure a Brexit deal which preserves their access to Europe, warning any barriers to trade could risk the future of car plants and ground flights between the UK and the continent.

    No-deal in Brexit talks is not an option, Britain's car industry body said on Wednesday after Theresa May formally launched divorce proceedings from the European Union, saying tariffs would raise costs and hit consumers.

    Ford , Britain's biggest automotive engine-maker and Rolls-Royce and Mini-maker BMW both warned that unfettered access to the European Union remained crucial.

    "Any deal must include securing tariff-free trade with the wider Customs Union and not just the EU27, whilst retaining access to the best talent and resources," Ford of Europe president Jim Farley said.

    "It also is critical that a transitional period is put in place to ensure that customers are not penalized and to maintain
