3 things to watch for from the Federal Reserve on Wednesday

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve is all but certain Wednesday to raise its key short-term interest rate for the third time this year and to signal that another hike is likely before the year ends. But what about next year? Most economists foresee a slowdown in the nearly 10-year-old U.S. economic expansion as President Donald Trump's trade war takes a toll and the benefits of tax cuts start to fade.

Or will it keep steadily tightening credit to ensure that a robust economy, with unemployment near a 50-year low, doesn't ignite high inflation?

Novartis plans to cut 2,100 jobs in Switzerland, Britain

GENEVA (AP) — Novartis said Tuesday it's cutting some 2,100 jobs in Switzerland and Britain over several years as the Swiss pharmaceuticals giant tweaks its corporate structure to become more nimble and more efficient. CEO Vas Narasimhan said Novartis hopes to lower its overall headcount worldwide to below 100,000, from about 126,000 today. Much of that is due to the planned spinoff of eye care unit Alcon. The Basel-based company said it is cutting some 1,700 jobs in Switzerland through 2022, including 1,000 manufacturing positions and another 700 service and managerial jobs, mostly at its headquarters.
