When the plans were first thought up, as oil prices crashed to under $40 per barrel of Brent crude, it must have seemed a...

EU leaders keep up pressure on May to take Brexit deal

SALZBURG, Austria — EU leaders lined up on Thursday to tell Theresa May she needs to give guarantees on the Irish border before they will grant her the Brexit deal the prime minister wants to avoid Britain crashing out of the bloc in March. On a second day of summitry in Austria, May's European Union peers rammed home their message on her plea for them to ease up on a "backstop" plan dealing with the border between the British province of Northern Ireland and EU member state Ireland. The backstop would keep Northern Ireland under EU economic oversight if London...

The numbers: Household and nonprofit net worth rose by $2.19 trillion in the second quarter, the Federal Reserve announced Thursday. That represents a seasonally adjusted annual rise of 2.1% to $106.93 trillion, driven in part by gains in the stock market as well as in the value of real estate. What happened: As the economic cycle grows older — and as the real estate sector bemoans a lack of available homes that has driven up house prices — household net worth continues to gain.
