Femipil and other medicines are displayed for sale in a pharmacy in Palong Khali refugee camp near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, October 30, 2017. Bangladeshi trader Mohammed Yusuf, 18, started trading three days ago. He sells Femipil at 18 taka per packet. "My prices are similar to that of all over Bangladesh. I just sell products which have fixed prices on them. Rohingya refugees don't know the price of medicine, most of them are uneducated thats why they are saying the prices are too high for them," he said.

A steep increase in Indonesia's import tariffs on wine and spirits could more than double prices that were sky-high already, denting demand and raising the risk of smuggling, drinks industry executives say. Under new tariffs that came into effect on July 23, importers have to pay 90 percent on the value of wine and 150 percent on spirits. Importers previously paid a fixed amount per litre.

Venezuelan coffee beans from private farms are seen at a roaster in Caracas
Venezuelan coffee beans from private farms are seen at a roaster in Caracas February 26, 2015. Venezuela, once a proud exporter of premium coffee, has been reduced to swapping crude oil for growing volumes of Nicaraguan coffee beans to make sure worsening economic turmoil does not prevent people from getting their caffeine fix. For the first time on record, coffee imports this year will exceed the bean output of Venezuela's centuries-old coffee industry, according to U.S. government estimates. The South American country's shift from net coffee exporter to substantial importer has altered flows in regional markets, boosting prices for some varieties of coffee.

Coffee beans are seen at state-run Cafe Venezuela in Caracas February 26, 2015. Venezuela, once a proud exporter of premium coffee, has been reduced to swapping crude oil for growing volumes of Nicaraguan coffee beans to make sure worsening economic turmoil does not prevent people from getting their caffeine fix. For the first time on record, coffee imports this year will exceed the bean output of Venezuela's centuries-old coffee industry, according to U.S. government estimates. The South American country's shift from net coffee exporter to substantial importer has altered flows in regional markets, boosting prices for some varieties of coffee.

Outsourced workers, that work for Petrobras, carry a symbolic coffin during a protest against recent layoffs in front of the Petrobras headquarters in Rio de Janeiro January 22, 2015. Brazilian state-run oil company Petrobras will take a charge of about 10 billion reais ($3.9 billion) in its delayed third-quarter results to write down overvalued assets, the O Globo newspaper reported on Thursday, citing an unnamed government source. Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as Petrobras is formally known, also plans to cut investment by 30 percent as part of a plan to preserve cash as a contract-fixing, bribery and political kickback scandal cuts it out of financial markets and falling oil prices crimp revenue, the paper said.

Inspired by Gustave Vichy's automaton "Pierrot Ecrivain" of 1895, French artist Christian Baily of Paris portrays Putin signing the "Treaty of Acceptance of the Republic Crimea into the Russian Federation" from March 18, 2014. The starting price of the automaton in the November 15 auction in Cologne, will be at 18,000 euros (US $ 22,900). Putin is portrayed with blue glass eyes and molded hair, seated at a rosewood writing desk in a blue wool suit, spotted tie and hand-sewn leather shoes, with single-air going-barrel movement in body.

Customers crowd amid stacked baskets of tomatoes at a wholesale vegetable and fruit market in the northern Indian city of Chandigarh August 7, 2014. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's election triumph in May had raised hopes of quick action to tackle India's recurring food price shocks. But, despite his strong economic record of running Gujarat, he has resorted to an old inflation playbook that contributed to the last government's crashing defeat.
Just like his predecessor, Modi has imposed export curbs and cracked down on hoarding. While these steps can give brief relief, they cannot fix a dilapidated system controlled by middlemen. REUTERS/Ajay Verma (INDIA - Tags: FOOD BUSINESS)
