While there is still considerable uncertainty over the forecast for #inflation, we think both Core #CPI and #PCE inflation peaked in March and February, respectively, and should move appreciably lower by the end of 2022. Image
Throughout the pandemic, strong disposable #income and limited services spending fueled consumer #spending on goods and high goods volumes created #bottlenecks and extreme #inflation. Image
Eventually, excessively easy #MonetaryPolicy caused this robust #inflation to broaden into less disrupted categories.

Today’s personal income and consumer spending data for June reaffirm our view that the reopening continues to drive a powerful #restart — and there’s still room to run. 1/4
In the #services sector, particularly #leisure and #hospitality — which bore the brunt of lockdowns and restrictions — the #spending splurge continues as consumers make up for lost time. But spending is still a little more than 3% below its pre-pandemic level in real terms. 2/4
On top, consumers still have a large war chest of accumulated #savings, a good share of which we expect to be deployed over coming quarters, further strengthening the restart. 3/4 Image

Xiao Gang says during 14th 5-Year Plan, China needs to carefully manage 5 relationships: that between inheritance & innovation, between the market & the government, between opening-up & independence, between development & safety, and between development strategies & tactics. 1/8
The Chinese government newly proposed that supply-side structural reforms should remain as the emphasis of efforts, while demand-side management also deserve due attention. 2/8
Xiao believes that to promote the new development pattern of #dualcirculation, the key is to balance the upgrade of the supply side and the expansion of consumer demands. 3/8

“They should tell the British people how the Treasury actually spends – that is, that it instructs the Bank of England to type numbers into bank accounts on its behalf”

In all geographies modelled (global, the EU, Germany, Poland, the UK, USA and India), green recovery plans were found to be more effective than return to normal stimulus approaches that reduce #VAT rates and encourage households to resume #spending (2/5)
The green recovery plans modelled are 5-point plans and include a smaller VAT reduction plus:

The #COVID19 resurgence has curbed China's economic recovery. According to Zhang Bin and Zhu He, except for the containment measures and deteriorated market expectations, a major factor repressing China's recovery remains insufficient #demands, both domestic and external.
The external environment and changes in the balance sheets of various domestic sectors indicate that consumer #spending may slowly pick up, but #exports will continue to be strained;
business #investments are expected to stay sluggish, while infrastructure investments and real estate investments are beginning to improve. However, whether the improvements will be sustainable still depends on future policies.

#China’s economic recovery from #COVID19 could be slow and full of uncertainties, with big structural changes, for 2 reasons:given the global economic standstill, export will find it much harder to pick up than before; fixed asset #investment will be less intensified than before.
But the crisis will give the Chinese economy new highlights.
1. Consumer #spending may become a major driver for growth; 2. #digitaleconomy has played a huge role in dealing with the blows, and with the development of new infrastructures, digital economy will reach a new height.
The crisis is very likely to bring about structural changes in the global economic landscape, and the risks associated with those changes worth attention from all businesses and market players.

The March #JobsReport only scratched the surface of what was unfolding, but the month of April displayed the catastrophic reality of significant #economic shutdowns across most states.
Indeed, nonfarm payroll #employment plummeted by -20.5 million in April, the #unemployment rate vaulted three-fold, to 14.75%, and while #job losses were widespread, leisure and hospitality was hit particularly hard.
In contrast, the information #technology sector suffered much fewer job losses, at least partly because the sector has #invested for growth for years, has witnessed greater levels of consumer #spending and has benefited from a dramatic rise in #online purchasing. Image

#BREAKING

#Lithuania #Vilnius

Last week #Lithuanian #parliament adopted the state #budget for 2020. The main #financial document of the #state was approved by the majority of voters.
It is sad to see how #Lithuania is #suffering without #money. Absolute #chaos – this is how they say in #Lithuania about the new budget.
So, state budget revenues are planned in the amount of 11.559 billion euros, expenses – 12.705 billion euros.
The budget deficit will amount 2.9% of the planned gross domestic product. In other words, the #Lithuanian #draft hardly met the requirements of #fiscal #discipline. The #budget #deficit for #EU member states should not exceed 3% of GDP.

1/6. Four recent pieces on #publichealth #funding and #spending of interest and worth thinking about - it's all a bit of a mess. See thread 👇
2/6. Today, from @IPPR, looking at cuts to the public health grant > fallen most on poorest areas (ironically, this is most probably a result of cuts being split 'equally' as opposed to according to needs - but unclear since report not yet on website) theguardian.com/society/2019/n…
3/6. But, it is still not clear what has happened to the promised (1%) real-terms increase in the public health grant in 2020-21, with concerns it will be swallowed by staffing costs and additional burdens (£paywall) hsj.co.uk/public-health/…
