Keyman188 IMF increases global growth forecast and says a way out of the crisis is ‘increasingly visible’


~ The latest round of fiscal stimulus in the U.S. along with the vaccine rollouts across the world have made the Fund more confident about the global economy this year.

~ The latest forecasts suggest the United States is well placed to experience a solid economic recovery in 2021, in contrast to what’s expected for most of the world, where many economies are likely to take longer to return to their pre-crisis levels.

LONDON — The International Monetary Fund is now expecting a stronger economic recovery in 2021 as Covid-19 vaccine rollouts get underway, but it warns of “daunting challenges” given the different rates of administering shots across the globe.

On Tuesday the group said it expects the world economy to grow by 6% in 2021, up from its 5.5% forecast in January.

Looking further ahead, global GDP (gross domestic product) for 2022 is seen increasing by 4.4%, higher than an earlier estimate of 4.2%.

“Even with high uncertainty about the path of the pandemic, a way out of this health and economic crisis is increasingly visible,” Gita Gopinath, the IMF’s chief economist, said in the latest World Economic Outlook report.

The latest round of fiscal stimulus in the U.S., along with the vaccine rollouts across the world, have made the fund more confident about the global economy this year.

“Nonetheless, the outlook presents daunting challenges related to divergences in the speed of recovery both across and within countries and the potential for persistent economic damage from the crisis,” Gopinath also said.

The IMF estimated a 5.1% GDP rate for advanced economies this year, with the United States growing at a pace of 6.4% in 2021.

Meanwhile, the forecast for emerging and developing economies is 6.7% in 2021, with India expected to grow as much as 12.5%.

“Within-country income inequality will likely increase because young workers and those with relatively lower skills remain more heavily affected in not only advanced but also emerging markets and developing economies,” Gita warned, while also adding that lower levels of female employment is exacerbating disparities too.

As a result, the IMF said that governments should continue to focus on “escaping the crisis” by providing fiscal support, including to their healthcare systems. In a second phase, “policymakers will need to limit long-term economic scarring” from the crisis and boost public investment, for instance.

“Without additional efforts to give all people a fair shot, cross-country gaps in living standards could widen significantly, and decades-long trends of global poverty reduction could reverse,” Gopinath warned.

Recovery in the U.S.

The latest forecasts suggest the United States is well placed to experience a solid economic recovery in 2021, in contrast to what’s expected for most of the world, where many economies are likely to take longer to return to their pre-crisis levels.

The positive assessment for the U.S. is highly driven by President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus rescue package, which entered into force last month.

As such, unemployment in the United States is expected to fall from 8.1% in 2020 to 5.8% this year and then again to 4.1% in 2022, according to the latest IMF projections.

Back in February, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said the U.S. could return to full employment in 2022. “There’s absolutely no reason why we should suffer through a long slow recovery,” she told CNN at the time.

The IMF’s latest forecasts confirm that the U.S. is on track to not only return but surpass its pre-Covid levels this year.

“Among advanced economies, the United States is expected to surpass its pre-Covid GDP level this year, while many others in the group will return to their pre-COVID levels only in 2022,” Gita said.

Keyman188 JPMorgan’s Dimon Says ‘This Boom Could Easily Run Into 2023’

(April 7, 2021, 6:10 PM GMT+8Updated on April 7, 2021, 9:39 PM GMT+8)

Jamie Dimon said he’s optimistic the pandemic will end with a U.S. economic rebound that could last at least two years.

“I have little doubt that with excess savings, new stimulus savings, huge deficit spending, more QE, a new potential infrastructure bill, a successful vaccine and euphoria around the end of the pandemic, the U.S. economy will likely boom,” the JPMorgan Chase & Co. chief executive officer said Wednesday in his annual letter to shareholders. “This boom could easily run into 2023.”

Unprecedented federal rescue programs have blunted unemployment and averted further economic deterioration, according to Dimon, who said banks entered the crisis strong and able to help communities weather the storm. While lenders also benefited from U.S. stimulus, they built up buffers against future loan losses and performed well in stress tests, he said.

Dimon also pointed to U.S. consumers, who used stimulus checks to reduce debt to the lowest level in 40 years and stashed them in savings, giving them -- like corporations -- an “extraordinary” amount of spending power once lockdowns end. The latest round of quantitative easing measures will have created more than $3 trillion in deposits at U.S. banks, a portion of which can be lent out, he said.

It could all add up to a Goldilocks moment, according to Dimon, where growth is fast and sustained while inflation ticks up gently. Threats to that outcome include virus variants and a rapid or sustained jump in inflation that prompts rates to rise sooner.

At 65, Dimon is the most prominent executive in global banking, serving as a spokesman for the industry while leading a titan of both Wall Street and consumer lending. He’s run the company since the end of 2005, and is the only CEO still at the helm after steering a major bank through the financial crisis.

The 65-page letter (plus a page of footnotes) is Dimon’s longest yet, following last year’s abbreviated one that came less than a week after he returned to work from emergency heart surgery. As always, it is wide-ranging, touching on topics from financial regulation to China to inequality and institutional racism.

masterus Is the Fed hiding something? Why weekly money supply data just got discontinued - Steve Hanke

(Kitco News) - The Federal Reserve recently discontinued updating the M1 and M2 weekly money supply series and is instead updating the series monthly.

Steve Hanke, professor of Applied Economics of Johns Hopkins University, said that this change reflects a change in attitude from the world's largest central bank on the importance of looking at money supply.

"Chairman Powell has very explicitly claimed that money doesn't matter in recent testimony. He's basically said that money and the measurement of money doesn't really matter because it's unrelated to inflation," Hanke said.

These money supply series have been published since the 1970s, and the fact that the Fed has changed the publishing frequency on M1 and M2 money supply from weekly to monthly demonstrates a change in worldviews, Hanke said.

1John215 Sifu Sharefisher, thanks for telling us to hold tight tight.. I am just curious why EPF kept selling and buying within days for millions of units for last months? Hope you can enlighten us. TQ.
08/04/2021 3:23 PM
Pgraduate123 Wow, finally broke 4.20...
08/04/2021 4:06 PM
Sharefisher 1john215, I also curious but I am not worried since support is strong. Compared to beginning of the year, epf only sold, sold and sold. Now at least, got bought and sold. Number of pbb free floating shares is huge after BI, need time for them to fall into long term investors and locked up in the safe. Hold tight tight.. Never wrong for pbb.
08/04/2021 4:12 PM
adam1314 Let our Malaysia Team control & playing......just hold & watching show..

PBB is on a dip now - sideways & now is time to collect before it moves up in the next phase soon.
Don't say you don't know as you are now aware. You will miss this chance if you aim too low.

Always read and listen to comments from experts like

1invest1 Looking at graph, PBB is forming a strong base at 4.20's before moving up in this qtr - Q2.

Q2 results will be BETTER as bus activities are returning, recovering & rebounding fast & furious !!!
Look at the signs, speed, momentum and fury of bus & trade activities going on everyday.
You are already stuck in traffic jams almost everywhere, everyday like before.

Banking industry is the barometer of the economy & banks will lead in the recovery process.

Refer to @AllYouCanBuy's post quoting banks to lead recovery process.
Refer to @Sharefisher's post on billions of PBB shares to be collected by long-term investors.
PBB will move up soon !

SHQuah EPF sometimes buy, sometimes sell ? Today reports showing EPF bought a lot of Public Bank shares.
09/04/2021 6:00 PM
Sharefisher Not sure what is going on. But hold tight tight is only way for retailers. Unless you have millions to play with the big legs now.
09/04/2021 6:05 PM
Sunshine123 SHQuah .... if EPF had bought, why didn't the price go up? Strange. I would have expected the counter to have risen several sen.
09/04/2021 6:10 PM
Willtolive Checking in with small lots
09/04/2021 6:17 PM
Sharefisher Epf traded volume was only 10 -15% or less of total daily trade volume. Can't move much. Seem like epf also become trader on pbb. Crazy.
09/04/2021 6:19 PM
1invest1 Big boys buy to trade, etc. If they buy to invest, even better. If they are not done buying, will suppress/maintain price.

Remember what @Sharefisher said, retailers in this forum cannot influence the price because volume is too small out of $80B PBB mkt cap.

We can share good news with EVERYONE. When enough new investors, 20,000 buy $50,000 each, you got 1B or 1.25% of PBB. With additional new investors & existing ones who top-up, MORE INFLUENCE to MOVE PBB PRICE UP FOR SURE. Share good news of 2 divs & price appreciation.
09/04/2021 7:02 PM
1John215 From my quick check, it is strange that EPF did not trade with Tenaga but with MBB and Nestle the volume are much smaller volume. These are all blue chips. Hopefully with PBB their ntention is for the good of the investors.
09/04/2021 7:31 PM
AllYouCanBuy The fair price should be 4.30-4.40 now... I am being very fair here. But it has been sluggish since March. Perhaps giving chance for others to come on board at a bargain ?

Funds had moved into the gloves and recently the telcos for the time being. Banks will be on their list soon.
