a history of stigmatization and exclusion of religious and political power struggles in christian christianity wants to come from that. that is why christianity use the figure of the gym as a deterrent. it's a history of slender, of hatred and violence. a 3rd of our people were exterminated $6000000.00 jews, like microbes to be annihilated even 77 years after the holocaust hatred towards jews is still pervasive history of antisemitism. this week on d. w. ah, ah. the moment european investors have been waiting for after 11 years, the european central bank has finally hiked interest rates. and by more than some had expected, will it be enough to tackle the euro zones record inflation. also on the show,

us unemployment rises for the 3rd straight week. it's the way to find the u. s. economy is slowing under the weight of rising interest rates and high inflation. and flows returned to north stream. one european importers breathed a sigh of relief for, with 1st reduced volumes of russian gas surging down the pipeline. it's by no means business as usual with this is the w business. i'm christy plats and in berlin. the european central bank has raised its key interest rates by half a percentage point. the 1st increase in 11 years. the bank raised its benchmark deposit rate to 0 percent joining its global peers and jacking up borrowing costs. the move is an attempt to bring down stubbornly, high inflation. analysts had initially anticipated a more modest rate hike this month. the bank is likely to raise rates again in september. what you see president christine, the guard said the larger 1st step was made with the risk of inflation in might
8:18 am
have a lesson we expect inflation to remain undesirable the high for some time owing to continued pressure from energy and food prices and pipeline pressures in the pricing chain, higher inflation pressures also stemming from the depreciation of the euro exchange rate. but looking further ahead, in the absence of new disruptions, energy cost should stabilize and supply bottlenecks should ease. or unlike some other central banks, the e. c. b has been reluctant to touch interest rates. my colleague, ashtosh pond. i told us earlier how this higher than expected hike came about. the surprise 50 basis point. hi, good. the biggest since 2000 and double the size that the easy be had signaled we're back in june. sure. just how the inflation situation in the euro's own has
8:19 am
worse and in the past 6 weeks. so it also shows the that the e, c, b is worried about the euro touching parity with dollar because that means much further inflation, but easy be job is far from over. it needs to maintain its aggressive stance because here is dealing with unprecedented levels of inflation. but its job is going to be difficult, given that there are recession fears and they could be a possibility, or that the gas supply to the block is actually stopped by russia. that's a big fear. and then there's also fears around debt, turmoil in the weaker economies of the euro zone over to the us. now. the number of americans filing for unemployment benefits rose for the 3rd straight week to 251000 last week. that's an 8 month high. but demand for labor
8:20 am
remain strong, as hiring continues to grow there nearly to job opening for every unemployed person in the u. s. the federal reserve is keeping an eye on the data as it tries to tame inflation, without triggering a certain unemployment. while our corresponding ins court in york has more on this. hi. yes. so the vitamin ministration loves to point to low unemployment as a sign that the us economy is still doing ok. but tell us what do these latest figures actually indicate? not actually the fed chairman jerome paul christi, just recently said that the labor matter market is way too hot. so maybe he gets this wish and the labor market is starting to cool down quite a bit. i mean, if you look at those weekly figures that we've gotten here on thursday, as you mentioned the highest level in a month, even if in general, the level is still pretty low. but there are more and more science and the labor market start. so softening, there is some word that google, for example,
8:21 am
is going to pause hiring for about 2 weeks. we just heard here on thursday, after hours from the social media company at nap, that they're actually going to reduce, hiring substantially that stop by the way, is down in our trading by about to 25 percent left. and right to hear more and more stories that companies start to pause hiring and in some incidents we even see some labels. okay. yeah, we also heard a bit of good news from the airline sector today. both united and american airlines reported their 1st profit without government assistance since the beginning of the pandemic. we know that the airline industry has been dealing with a lot of problems the last several months. is this a sign that that industry is turning around? yeah, definitely. it's an industry where they're looking for more stuff and not to reduce it, but it remains challenging to get the pilot and also a flight attendant. so that remains them in issue. and that is the one reason why
8:22 am
both airlines are still below the 2019 a capacity. so before the pandemic kit, but overall, to answer your question, christy. yes. the airline industry is definitely showing some strengths, a travel back. and i'm also on to our little bell ringing. i mean, the market is already close, but who knows? but ok, but no, the airline industry definitely is sewing from a strong science. they are able to ask for higher and higher affairs. and that's the interesting part of the story at this point. and even if the capacity is below a 2019 leveled some, some of those airlines actually have records revenue. and interestingly also, even with those profits from united airlines, also american airlines. the stock got to enter a lot of pressure here in the service they session united down by 10 percent
