virgin galactic generate. well i mean if you want to invest into the vision of now you might get the chance because yes it is the 1st real space company going public it is by the way a pretty unusual way because they're going to merge with another company that is already listed here on the new york stock exchange but with this merger automatically virgin galactic would become a listed company here on the floor the question is if you do believe the bank u.b.s. actually predicts that the market for space tourism in about a decade could be worth a good $3000000000.00 sold there seems to be market. analysts make the comparison to tesla the company often is not necessarily profitable but you can invest into it. yes obviously by listing it can raise more capital for its competition how is virgin galactic viewed against its competitors blue origin and
space x. . well in general it seems like virgin galactic might be the 1st of the 3 that could become profitable the company itself is saying within 2 years the company could be profitable but if you look at the 3 business models they have been different if you look at tesla companies for example they are already in service but they're not profitable and they're focused mostly on commercial purposes for example delivering the space station and they're also aiming for mars if you look at blue ridge and from amazon they're also more commercial at this point and they're looking at landing on the moon and virgin galactic that's really a leisure trip for $250000.00 apiece if you want to hit space and virgin galactic itself is saying that demand is already there and within a year we might see the 1st flights of virgin galactic so overall they seem to be
prepared and could be the 1st of 3 that might turn profitable was in the near future so big invasions in the space tourism industry yes court is there for us in new york. over the us california allman farmers are caught in the middle of donald trump's trade conflicts last year farmers could offset the pain of chinese tariffs in part by selling their produce to india but now those sales are also in jeopardy. jake winger's family has been farming in this area for more than a century and has been growing all means for nearly 40 years and much of their crop ended up on tables beyond u.s. borders. this year's harvest brings uncertainty last month india impose tariffs on all mines and $27.00 other u.s. products including apples and walnuts in retaliation for the united states ending india's preferential trade status. the india tires were
a double whammy coming after judi's of 50 percent china placed on aman's last year california supplies 82 percent of the world's $7000.00 growers. india used to be the 2nd largest export market in the last year became the largest because of a lot of that new product going into india that would have gone into china so going into this year it's a another greater level of concern because india was the place that sort of helped even out the impacts from the china tariffs now we see the new tariffs in india and it certainly gives farmers a big question mark as we just are getting into the harvest season. it's a question that's likely to remain open until the end of the year when growers send their all means to the co-op for processing and export. that's when they'll find out how much their harvest is worth and they'll learn the true cost of the trade war. now to some of the other business stories making news around the world. boeing
