Australia’s Consumer Confidence Slightly Declined

The consumer confidence in Australia declined last week due to the current and future finances sentiment and risks on longer-term outlook remains.

The ANZ-Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence Index slipped by 0.6 percent to 113.4 during the week until October 1st, showing a positive sentiment to the economic situation offset by the decline in the prospect of households based on personal finances.

Moreover, consumers are confident regarding the current and future conditions of the economy and came in at 2.5 percent last and 2.0 percent accordingly. However, the household’s outlook is down to 1.6 percent.

Felicity Emmett, ANZ Senior Economist, stated that the financial condition remains above average in the longer-term even though its stability became shaky.  The index for buying household goods lowered down by 3.3 percent, as the increased last week eased off and keep below the long-term average. This coincided with the forecast on retail sales for the month of August which has the tendency to decline due to the recovery period.

Furthermore, expectations for inflation revised upward from 0.1 percent to 4.5 percent based on the four-week moving average.

UK Inflation Ranked First Among The G7: OECD

According to the statistics issued by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the cost of living in Britain increased faster compared to other countries, including the so-called ‘G7 leading global economies’. Based on the revealed figures, the British economy has the highest inflation rate among top economies of the world, as the Brexit weighed on the sterling pound and continue to put pressure on household finances.

Inflation in the United Kingdom rose to 2.9% last month due to a surge in prices of fuel and clothing which exacerbate the pressure towards cash-strapped households struggling with slow wage growth. The UK was able to overcome the 1.7% average, which is also greater than the recorded inflation of other G7 members (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States). It also exceeded the OECD average percentage of 2.2%, this further indicates that Britain surmounted the European Union including other G20 nations, showing results at .5%, 1.7%, and 2.3%.

However, the Britons are currently facing poor wage growth and high expenditure on the back of a weaker pound. This is because of the Brexit referendum that heightened prices for energy, imported goods, and services. Furthermore, United Kingdom is only behind Estonia, Latvia, Mexico, and Turkey.

Miscalculation of ONS Affected BoE’s Possible Rate Hike

The Office for National Statistics of UK further put pressure on the Bank of England over the issue of the rate hike next month after it lacks confidence to the pacing of the labor costs. On Monday, the official statistics agency admitted the mistakes made on its initial estimates for the growth of wage costs unit. The calculation is shown an annualized 2.4 percent in three months to June against the earlier published 1.6 percent on Friday.

The upward revision indicates that growth wages in Britain could be a driving force closely examined by Threadneedle Street, while there is a possible rate increase for the first time in the past decade. Moreover, the growing labor costs imply the strengthening of the economy, confirming a raise in interest rates.

The borrowing cost would likely boost from 0.25% to 0.5% and the committee for the monetary policy should decide whether the economy is capable to come up with the increase.

Regardless of the optimistic signs of the economy, there are varying prospects for a weaker scenario. As reports from the construction sector revealed signs for a possible downturn. While the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, on the other hand, predicted that UK economy will slow-up in 2018.

Furthermore, analysts from Swiss bank UBS mentioned that the rate hike could worsen the potential reversal of the British economy due to Brexit procedures.

The wages of British laborers were not able to surge over inflation rate since the 1970s in spite of low levels of unemployment. However, salary growth is improving but fail to keep its pace due to a high cost of living brought by imports value relative to the sluggish pound.

Rise in German Exports and Bigger Trade surplus in August

Exports from Germany surpassed imports in August bringing the gap of the trade surplus wider and reflects the performance of the Europe’s biggest economy where it appears to be robust in the third quarter on Tuesday.

The exports were seasonally adjusted and climbed by 3.1 percent for October while imports got higher by 1.2 percent according to the data from the Federal Statistics Office. This has been the highest growth of exports in twelve months.

Overall, both exports and imports had operated better than anticipated. A poll from Reuters noted that the exports increased by 1.0 percent and imports ascended by 0.5 percent. On the other hand, the seasonally adjusted trade surplus gapped much bigger at 21.6 billion euros or $25.42 billion after adjustment on 19.3 billion euros in July. The reading from August was much elevated than the predicted figure of 20.0 billion euros from Reuters.

The wider account surplus shows the exchange of goods, services, and investment as it dropped to 17.8 billion euros and revised upwards to 19.6 billion euros in July which is not modified.

Expected Positive Recovery on  World Economy, says IMF

On Tuesday, the comprehensive global economic growth is expected to remain this year until 2018, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). While the gains of most countries around the globe were able to countervail weak data from India, United Kingdom, and the United States.

The IMF revised higher its predictions for the current economic upswing by 0.1 percentage points, showing 3.6 percent increase and 3.7 percent for next year. The upgraded forecast was steered by the increase in consumer confidence, investment, and trades.

Moreover, projections for China, Japan, and the euro area, including emerging markets, Europe and Russia, also skyrocketed.

The economic development in the United States remained unchanged at 2.2 percent in 2017 and 2.3 percent next year based on Fund’s July statistics. The tax reduction imposed by Trump administration is still not accomplished, as expected.

As indicated in the Fund’s report for April, the 2017 growth outlook for the United States was trimmed by 0.1 percentage points and 0.2 percentage points in 2018, and suddenly raise in July with the same points.

The Republican party had laid out three tax proposals seeing that Trump governs since January and the administration's most recent action is stuck in a political dispute in Congress.

The Fund affirmed that America’s economy would slow down due to changing demographics and weak productivity development in the longer term. It further mentioned that the potential growth of the state will only be at 1.8 percent, which is lower than the government’s target at 3.0 percent.

Canada Ahead Against G7: IMF Economic Growth Estimate for 2017

The Canadian economic growth increased the estimated value until next year of the  International Monetary Fund. It was placed in a higher ranking amongst developed countries.

The projected value of the country’s Gross Domestic Product for this year is 3.0 percent which is half a percent higher than the prediction in July. This makes Canada be on top of other advanced seven nations with the United States ranks at 2.2 percent growth since last year. 

The figures from the IMF were similar to the quotation issued in the previous month by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and assumed that the country would lead the G7 countries for 2017.

It was said that the reason for an increase in growth was the drop in oil and gas prices and further supported by the government and the central bank policies. For next year, the Canada is anticipated to move at a slower rate with an estimated figure of 2.1 percent growth year-on-year in 2018. Yet, this is still higher than 0.2 percent than the IMF July update and second-highest among the G7 with the United States at 2.3 percent.

Japan’s LNG Infrastructure Offered to Asia

The government of Japan will disclose a public-private initiative amounting to $10 billion, its goal is to draw on the rapid expansion of liquefied natural gas infrastructure due to high consumption of fuel all through Asia.

The Nippon Export and Investment Insurance (NEXI) and Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) will serve as agents in engaging Japanese firms to investment plans aiming to establish LNG infrastructure as power plants and offloading terminals.

The minister of economy, trade and industry, Hiroshige Sekō, is scheduled to unveil the project in Wednesday during the  LNG Producer-Consumer Conference.  Leading officials such as the prime minister and cabinet members would likely be in the event, promoting relevant projects to different regions. Moreover, the plan is formed to improve the partnership between the United States and Japan. As shale gas production was withdrawn in the U.S which further caused an issue for finding buyers for the natural gas.

The arrangement between America and Asia to expand shale gas exports is anticipated to tackle at U.S.-Japan economic dialogue meeting on October 16 in Washington, hence the initiative is expected to achieve this goal.

The factor that confines growth of the LNG market is the agreements stating about the restricted reselling of fuel. Meanwhile, India and Japan are expected to sign an LNG cooperation on Wednesday making  LNG supply contracts flexible.

Italy’s Cabinet Approves National Budget for 2018

The Italian cabinet approved the 2018 government budget worth 20 billion euros ($23.6 billion) with added measures. The allocation is expected to proceed prior the Senate scheduled on October 20, 2017, as the approval from both chambers are required until the end of December based on the report from Xinhua. Moreover, it will be reassessed by the  European Union (EU) Commission.

According to Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, the primary concern of the administration is to avoid the increase of value-added tax (VAT) and new taxes. A portion of the budget amounting to 15.7 billion euros ($ 18.4 billion) is needed in order to prevent the effect of safeguard clause for next year. This clause drives the government for VAT hikes along with some indirect taxes in case the expenditure assessment appeared to be low in terms of planned budgetary goals indicated in the EU rules.

The key indicator for the national budget is the 50 percent reduction of tax wedge in labour for three years towards companies that offered open-ended contracts for new workers 35 years old and below. It was also confirmed that companies that invest in new machinery have a fiscal break in 2018.

The allocation would finance the recruitment of 1,500 new researchers for Italian universities while the renewal of employment contract is approved for laborers under the public sector, by which had been suspended for nearly a decade.

Significant Impact of Reversing Brexit on the UK Economy is Possible

According to the world’s leading economic think-tank, the reversing Brexit is expected to cause a positive and significant impact towards the British economy, issuing an extreme warning on the possible consequences of EU exit.

Based on the report that highlighted the weak economic growth of UK since the referendum last year, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) warned of the possible risks in establishing an essential trade deal with the European Union.

The UK economy has the tendency to hinder its progress by a disorganized Brexit, in case of a failure of Brussels negotiations. This could further push the sterling pound lower resulting in a failing credit rating in the UK. Also, it underlined the uncertainty of Britain to break up whenever Northern Ireland and Scotland consider again their fate in the EU due to Brexit.

José Ángel Gurría, the OECD secretary general, advised that increasing inflation triggered by the sluggish pound would likely stall investments and expenditure. While the government should not create new barriers within EU and UK.

On the other hand, Chancellor Philip Hammond persisted that actions from the government relative to the referendum provided necessary confidence for businesses.

At the same time, British Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson addressed that the report caused vindication to the call of her party regarding a new referendum that offers an “exit from Brexit.”
While according to Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, the report depicted a “damning picture” about the economic management by the government coupled with the Brexit process.

Moreover, the most recent United Kingdom OECD Economic survey forecasted growth in the economy by 1% next year, this projection could get worse without free trade agreements. The EU exit exacerbates the demand to renew employment productivity growth, considering the statement from the OECD that it remained steady and failed to manage any meaningful contribution to British output since 2007. Hence, this is the weakest data outside South East England and Greater London.

The differences among regions and labourers could lead to a significant distinction between people with regards to profits and resources, work and income and skills and education.
