Fed Eyes Second Quarter Recovery, Expects Trump Fiscal Policy Will Expand Economy

czw., 25/05/2017 - 18:34

Data supporting the second quarter recovery thesis is nonexistent. Four out of four of the recent hard data economic reports have been negative.

Soft data diffusion indexes do not look so hot either.

Earlier today the Census Bureau reported the trade deficit widened. The same report shows retail and wholesale inventories declined by 0.3% each.

Federal Receipts Running Below Expectations: Treasury Seeks “Clean” Debt Ceiling Increase (Removed)

śr., 24/05/2017 - 21:42

In yet another sign of a slowing economy, US federal receipts are running below expectations.

As a result, the need to bump up the debt ceiling will come sooner than expected.

Given Republican budget fights and threats in the Obama years, one of them resulting in a partial government shutdown, it will be interesting to see their stance now that Trump is president. (more…)

wt., 23/05/2017 - 07:34

Yet another Greek debt cliffhanger is in the works.

After eight hours of intense negotiations, Greece, EU creditors, and the IMF did not reach agreement on restructuring Greek Debt.

However, a big debt repayment does not come until July so negotiations will drag on and on. In the past, there was always a last minute deal. Will it be any different this time?

Voters Smack Spain’s Political Leadership: Snap Spanish Presidential Elections Coming Up?

pon., 22/05/2017 - 17:40

Last year, the socialist party (PSOE) leadership ousted Pedro Sánchez as its head when Sánchez refused to allow a minority government of Mariano Rajoy to form. Susana Díaz took over as party head.

Socialist party elections were held yesterday. Sánchez ran again as an outsider and shocked the POSE leadership winning an outright majority of votes in a three-way race. This was a clear smack in the face to the party leadership who backed Susana Díaz.

With Sánchez back at the helm in Parliament, Rajoy has little chance of getting his legislation passed. Rajoy now has his eye on calling snap elections.
