Welcome to Tuesday, Europe. Here’s the latest news and analysis from Bloomberg Economics to help get your day started:

  • The U.S. proposed tariffs on roughly $2.4 billion in French products, in response to a tax on digital revenues that hits large American tech companies including Google, Apple Inc., Facebook Inc. and Amazon.com Inc

    • President Donald Trump is reinstating tariffs on steel and aluminum from Argentina and Brazil, accusing them of depreciating their currencies to the detriment of U.S. farmers
  • America’s two most-watched manufacturing surveys pointed in different directions in November, and economists and investors can’t seem to agree on which one paints the more accurate picture
  • The death of the U.K. high street is hitting women the hardest
  • For years, low inflation looked like a classic rich-world problem. Plenty of developing economies now have it too.
  • Christine Lagarde said the ECB will be “resolute” in restoring euro-zone price stability under her presidency
  • Angela Merkel’s coalition partner is turning leftwards, but that doesn’t mean Germany’s chancellor is poised to give into calls for a major fiscal stimulus
  • China’s PMI spread some cheer as the end of year approaches, but the pain is far from over, writes Bloomberg Economics’ Chang Shu
  • Turkish inflation probably bounced back to double-digits in November, possibly limiting the central bank’s ability to continue easing monetary policy with lower interest rates
