Chief Executive Hiroya Kawasaki on Friday revealed that about 500 companies had received its falsely certified products, more than double its earlier count, confirming widespread wrongdoing at the steelmaker that has sent a chill along global supply chains.

The scale of the misconduct at Japan’s third-largest steelmaker pummeled its shares as investors, worried about the financial impact and legal fallout, wiped about $1.8 billion off its market value this week.

As the company revealed tampering of more products, the crisis has rippled through supply chains across the world in a body blow to Japan’s reputation as a high-quality manufacturing destination.

WASHINGTON — The United States has a problem: not enough inflation.

That notion is a bit of a head-scratcher. Most people don’t like inflation. They would prefer that a dollar tomorrow be worth the same as a dollar today.

But a recent drop in inflation may be a sign of fresh economic weakness and is perplexing to Federal Reserve officials who are now wrapping up the central bank’s stimulus campaign.”

Market watchers wonder whether the strong showing heralds smooth sailing or choppy water ahead

Global stock markets collectively had their best opening half-year in years, a strong run capped by turbulence this week that could be a harbinger of greater volatility in the second half of the year.

All but four of the 30 major indexes representing the world’s biggest stock markets by value have risen this year, a first-half performance unmatched since 2009, according to an analysis by The Wall Street Journal. In the past 20 years, only four first-half rallies have been as widespread or better than the current global surge. Two of them preceded sharp market crashes, while two others came at the beginning of multiyear bull markets.

In the U.S., the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite surged 14%, its best first half since 2003. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 each rose 8%. But the U.S. wasn’t alone. Stock benchmarks from South Korea to India to Spain were among the biggest risers over the first six months, all registering double-digit percentage gains”
