Lagarde Favors Less Strict Trade Policies

 

The stricter protectionist trade measures slows down the current frail economy not only in United States but including other countries as said by the head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde. She described it as an “economic malpractice”. Restricting trades would worsen the status of workers and families.

 

It has pros and cons for members of trades but considering present weak economy and bigoted politics, an open trading is more advantageous to all. However, if the trade policies are neglected, the opportunity for progress is lessened since global economy still needs it to drive growth.

Wells Fargo Temporarily Banned from Municipal Bond-Issuer California

 

The State of California will be suspending business relationships with banking firm Wells Fargo & Co. after the said firm went under fire for admitting that it had created millions of fake customer accounts in an attempt to hit the firm’s target sales. By banning the said firm, California will no longer be allowing Wells Fargo to handle its bank transactions and underwrite the state’s debt. The said suspension will be in effect for a total of 12 months and might possibly become permanent if the bank still refuses to change its banking practices. In addition, California will also be halting its investment deposits in Wells Fargo’s securities. State Treasurer John Chiang has already stated that California has replaced Wells Fargo with Loop Capital for two $527 million municipal agreements which is scheduled to be sold next week.

Volkswagen Plans to Reduce Workforce Yearly

 

Top management of Volkswagen may reduce around 2,500 jobs every year for the span of 10 years through early retirement. This is a step for the plan to cut expenses as a future strategy without dismissing thousands of workers abruptly.  On the other hand, they are in need of additional workforce for “software development and mobility services” to counteract the Diesel Emission scandal saying they cheated on their pollution emission tests in US.

Weak Trades in China Slows Down Economic Growth

 

The exports and imports in China fell short of expectations as it dropped by 10% and 1.9% respectively in US dollars. This was triggered by a weak demand both domestically and internationally affected by the price hike in oil. Although in China’s perspective this became an advantage with higher returns. For analysts this is a sign for a slow growth in the economy but it is still inconclusive to say unless there is another substantial report that confirms slow development.

EU Exporters Could End Up Paying Higher Tariffs to EU Than Vice Versa

 

EU enterprise exporting goods would pay higher tariff to Uk compared to the other way around. Around £12.9 billion are to be paid by EU enterprises just on tariffs alone after UK leaving EU and should Britain come in terms with the World Trade Organization. In exchange, UK enterprise exporters has to pay around £5.2 billion for tariff in a year. This implies the significance for both parties to settle their post-Brexit trade deal. A study has been conducted showing 22 out of 27 EU members are found out to pay higher tariffs regarding exports to UK.

 

Additionally, the act of Belgium to not agree regarding the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (Ceta) between EU and Canada which has been an issue recently. Nevertheless, a representative of the campaign, Chris Grayling, said that this would not be a hindrance to settle an agreement with the British trade deal with EU.

China Reassures Investors to Impede a Six-year Low

 

Chinese Yuan is depreciating nearing a record low in six years. The government is finding ways to hinder the process and recover from this impending threat. However, the deputy Governor of People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said that there is no grounds for a relentless decline and they stopped it from happening.

 

China is giving off signs that the currency is being carefully monitored and investors should be careful in their trading positions against the currency. Despite this information, this would have much of an impact considering past connotations to the problem since the driving force is the appreciation of dollar.

 

The PBOC is saying if volatility arises, investors should not be agitated as they would definitely do something to stabilize the situation. China has already eased the local bonds and abandoned the necessity for inbound investment program quotas.

Better Global Economic Standing Despite Rise in Unemployment Rate

 

Recent data showed a 3% growth but this was because of short-term fleeting factors. The unemployment rate stayed low while the underemployment and long-term unemployment has increased with weakened nominal wage and inflation. This is in contrast of unemployment rates released by IMF saying that it increased were majority part-time.

 

Australia's economic status is performing better than other countries and it would get stronger if there will be more investments and invigorate business confidence. However if the investments remained subtle, company earnings would be affected and be in tension. Also, the consumer consumption would stay low if the job earnings would not increase.

 

The RBA should keep interest rate slow and maximize infrastructure spending to increase in employment rates in current global economic environment.
