  China’s premier said today that his government would respond to an economic slowdown by cutting taxes, easing burdens on the private sector and giving markets a bigger role, Keith Bradsher and Chris Buckley of the NYT write.

  2019 is a “crucial year” for China’s economy, Premier Li Keqiang, the second-ranking official in the country after President Xi Jinping, said at the opening of the National People’s Congress in Beijing this morning. He said the trade war with America had “had an adverse effect,” adding, “We must be fully prepared for a tough struggle.”

   China has lowered its growth target for this year. Mr. Li said that the nation was now aiming for gross domestic product growth of 6 to 6.5 percent, down from a target of 6.5 percent over the past two years.

  Other policy changes include a reduction in value added tax, which is expected to boost corporate earnings. And Mr. Li said the government would “act with resolve to hand matters it shouldn’t manage over to the market.”

  But Mr. Li’s speech “did not go as far as domestic or foreign critics would have liked,” Mr. Bradsher and Mr. Buckley write, adding that “economic anxieties have come to dominate policy in China” over the past year.

  And China may just need to accept the new normal. A gradual decline in an astonishing growth rate is “what happens when you become a big, maturing economy,” Daniel Moss of Bloomberg Opinion writes.

  More: China is getting ready to overhaul to its laws on foreign investment in order to ease its trade dispute with the U.S.

  A Tokyo court ruled today that the former auto industry leader Carlos Ghosn could post bail, months after he was charged with financial misconduct. The court set the bail at 1 billion yen, or about million.

  It was Mr. Ghosn’s third bail request, but the first led by his new legal team, including the high-profile defense lawyer Junichiro Hironaka. Prosecutors previously argued that Mr. Ghosn was a flight risk and might tamper with evidence.

  The court imposed strict limits on Mr. Ghosn, including a ban on leaving Japan, surveillance outside his Tokyo residence and a pledge not to contact people beyond his legal team. “The bail conditions are severe, but we will make sure to comply,” Mr. Hironaka said.

  The battle for bail highlighted Japan’s use of what critics call “hostage justice.” The FT writes that it “prolongs the detainment of defendants who, like Mr. Ghosn, assert their innocence and refuse to make a confession.”

  Mr. Ghosn isn’t free yet. Prosecutors have appealed, and his own legal team says he’s unlikely to be released today.

  The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Representative Jerry Nadler, issued a flurry of document requests yesterday to all corners of President Trump’s world. It’s the most sweeping effort yet by Democratic lawmakers to investigate the president for alleged misdeeds.

  Mr. Nadler requested information from 81 people and agencies, including the Trump Organization, the Trump campaign, the Trump Foundation, the inaugural committee, the White House, and family members and aides. Other House committee chairs have requested documents related to Mr. Trump’s communications with President Vladimir Putin of Russia.

  Democrats are looking into possible violations of campaign finance law and use of office for personal gain, particularly where it might violate a constitutional ban on foreign emoluments. They’re also investigating claims about hush money payments to the porn star Stormy Daniels and attacks against critics.

  They clearly won’t wait for Robert Mueller. The NYT notes that the House has “a different standard of evidence not wedded to a criminal indictment.” Republicans accused their colleagues of laying the groundwork for impeachment proceedings.

  But hurdles remain. Unlike Mr. Mueller, House Democrats can’t compel document production by convening a grand jury. And the White House could assert executive privilege to block some requests — though Trump administration officials said they would cooperate when possible.

  The telecom giant finally unveiled its new structure for what was once Time Warner yesterday, days after it beat the Justice Department’s effort to block the acquisition. Warner Media, as it now is, has been reorganized to better fight old rivals (like Verizon) and new ones (like Netflix).

  Who’s in? Bob Greenblatt, the former head of NBC and Showtime, will be chairman of Warner Media Entertainment. Jeff Zucker, the current CNN chief, will oversee news and sports. And Kevin Tsujihara will continue to lead the Warner Bros. movie studio, along with a new division for family and kids’ programming.

  The battle has two fronts. AT&T hopes 24-hour news and content like “Game of Thrones” will help it fend off telecom competitors. But it also wants to compete in streaming against giants like Netflix and Amazon. John Stankey, the head of Warner Media, told the NYT that the reorganization would speed the development of a new online video service.

  The man in the hot seat is Mr. Greenblatt, who as HBO’s new boss replaces Richard Plepler, the much-admired former C.E.O. who resisted AT&T’s desire to make the network more like Netflix. Mr. Greenblatt defended AT&T’s approach, telling Vanity Fair that HBO would have to increase its output “because now we live in a volume world, and there’s no way to really avoid that.”

  More: The New Yorker reported that in the summer of 2017, President Trump ordered Gary Cohn, then his economic adviser, to push the Justice Department into blocking AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner.

  After the Great Depression, the Glass-Steagall Act forced lenders to separate their commercial and investment banking operations. Now, Representative David Cicilline, who leads the House antitrust subcommittee, wonders if something similar could apply to tech.

  “It’s an interesting idea whether there would be a way to think about separating what platforms do versus people who are selling products and information — a Glass-Steagall for the international” tech companies, Mr. Cicilline told the FT.

  His views hold weight. Mr. Cicilline has been an outspoken voice in the Democratic Party about tech regulation — he previously said that “Facebook cannot be trusted to regulate itself” — and his committee position is a powerful one.

  Others in Washington are making similar noises. Last week, the F.T.C. announced a new Big Tech task force, and its director of competition, Bruce Hoffman, said that some companies could be forced to “spin off” previous acquisitions.

  Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to limit companies’ ability to buy back their shares. But Josh Bolten, the C.E.O. of the Business Roundtable, and Ken Bertsch, the executive director of the Council of Institutional Investors, write in an NYT Op-Ed that such efforts could hurt the economy.

  • Restricting buybacks and dividends, the two write, could force companies “to sit on cash or waste it on projects with a low potential for success.”

  • “Some critics of buybacks miss this point: Money returned to shareholders through buybacks and dividends does not disappear from the economy,” Mr. Bolten and Mr. Bertsch add, citing individuals making big purchases, angel investments in new businesses and loans as potential uses of such cash.

  • “While there was a substantial increase in buybacks and dividends last year, business investment also increased substantially and grew at the fastest rate since 2011.”

  • “Not only do buybacks and dividends support a stronger and more dynamic economy, they also contribute to Americans’ retirement security,” Mr. Bolten and Mr. Bertsch write, citing widespread stock ownership in American households.

  • The two concede that buybacks could be abused and advocate companies having strong corporate governance. But they argue federal limitations “would stifle innovation and opportunity in America.”

  A recent Google study into pay equality at the company found — to the surprise of just about everyone — that men were paid less than women for doing similar work, Daisuke Wakabayashi of the NYT writes:

  • “The study, which disproportionately led to pay raises for thousands of men, is done every year.”

  • “In response to the study, Google gave .7 million in additional compensation to 10,677 employees for this year. Men account for about 69 percent of the company’s work force, but they received a higher percentage of the money.”

  • “Critics said the results of the pay study could give a false impression. Company officials acknowledged that it did not address whether women were hired at a lower pay grade than men with similar qualifications.”

  • “A more difficult issue to solve — one that critics say Google often mismanages for women — is a human resources concept called leveling. Are employees assigned to the appropriate pay grade for their qualifications?”

  More: Some employees reportedly believe that the company continues to work on a censored search engine for China.
