The prices of the things we buy, from floor lamps to canoes and bicycles, are slated to go up, literally overnight, as the Trump administration makes good on a promise to raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of imported Chinese products . With trade talks between the U.S. and China yielding no deal , consumers and the businesses that serve them say they're bracing for bigger ripple effects. Retailers, manufacturers, small farmers and multinational conglomerates are united in their concern...

Over the last generation, the Greater Boston region has seen a major shift in the racial makeup of its population, according to a new report from the Boston Foundation.

The study, titled “The Changing Faces of Greater Boston,” found that all 147 cities and towns in the region have seen increases in the number of people of color who call them home. But some parts of Boston are losing people of color, who are ending up further outside of the city.

President Trump honored the 2018 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox at a White House ceremony Thursday, lauding the team as a "shining example of excellence" in "an American sporting tradition that goes back many generations." But the tradition of an apolitical White House celebration has become something of a thing of the past, with the invitation from Trump becoming more of a loaded loyalty test, forcing players to pick sides. Roughly a third of the team skipped the event in protest. The...

The attorneys general of 38 states and territories sent a letter to congressional leaders on Wednesday, urging them: Please, let us bank the money generated by the country's booming cannabis business. Most states and several U.S. territories have legalized medical marijuana , and 10 states and the District of Columbia have legalized adult recreational use . But federal law still considers marijuana illegal, which exposes banks to legal risk if they handle weed-related money or transactions. ...

Dysfunction, Set In Boston

Boston Lyric Opera ’s latest production is an opera version of Margaret Atwood’s novel A Handmaid’s Tale , a story of a dysfunctional future society, staged in the most authentic setting possible, a basketball court. And not just any basketball court, but one at Harvard University, which is the setting for the novel. The first lines of the book refer to a gymnasium converted into a dormitory where the protagonist sleeps. So that’s where the opera will be performed. The opera is set in and...
