IMF asks rich nations to tight monetary policy carefully

Oct 12 2013, 4:18pm CDT | by IANS

Washington, Oct 13 (IANS) Echoing India's stand International Monetary Fund's steering panel Saturday asked rich nations to avoid hurting emerging markets with "well timed, carefully calibrated, and clearly communicated" exit from current liberal monetary policies.

Washington, Oct 13 — Echoing India's stand International Monetary Fund's steering panel Saturday asked rich nations to avoid hurting emerging markets with "well timed, carefully calibrated, and clearly communicated" exit from current liberal monetary policies.

The International Monetary and Financial Committee acknowledged that "accommodative monetary policies" adopted by the US and other advanced economies after the 2008 global crisis have helped support global growth.

The recovery in the US has gained ground, stimulus measures have induced a recovery in Japan, the euro area is emerging from recession, and in some other advanced economies, including Britain, growth is already picking up, it noted.

While such policies remain "appropriate, and should be accompanied by credible fiscal policies and further financial sector and structural reforms," the panel said normalisation of monetary policy "should be well timed, carefully calibrated, and clearly communicated".

Where country circumstances allow, medium-term fiscal plans should be implemented flexibly to take account of near-term economic conditions to support growth and job creation, while placing government debt on a sustainable track, it said.

"These actions will help to mitigate risks and manage spillovers, including those stemming from increased capital flow volatility, and to achieve strong, sustained and balanced growth," the panel said.

In particular, the panel asked the US "to take urgent action to address short-term fiscal uncertainties" and the euro area to "build on progress toward banking union and further reduce financial market fragmentation."

The growth in emerging market economies continues to account for the bulk of global growth, but has moderated, in a few cases to a more sustainable level, the panel noted.

Fundamentals and policy frameworks are generally stronger, but domestic structural challenges remain, it said and recent volatility in capital flows and financial markets has created new challenges in some countries.

In view of the current state of global economy, the panel said the "Fund should continue to provide a forum to stimulate analysis and multilateral dialogue that promotes policy coherence and concerted action to manage spillovers."

Besides helping manage spillovers "arising from the eventual and welcome normalisation of monetary policy", it should also help "mitigate risks, and support strong, sustainable and balanced growth, and job creation," the panel said.

The panel said it attached "the highest priority to the IMF governance and quota reform to enhance the Fund's credibility, legitimacy and effectiveness", and urged all members who have yet to ratify the 2010 reforms to do so without delay.

The British Pound Just Got Whacked

Aug 19 2014 4:05am CDT | Source: Business Insider

The British pound dropped to $1.664 from around $1.671 moments ago. The move followed a new inflation report that showed UK consumer prices fell by 0.3% month-over-month in July, which was worse than the -0.2% expect. On a year-over-year basis, CPI climbed by just 1.6% year-over-year, missing expectations for 1.8% growth. "Disinflationary tailwinds from sterling appreciation should push down on the headline rate in months to come," wrote Bloomberg economists Jamie Murray, N ...

It's Amazing How Well Dumb Things Work

By Harry Long:I am often amazed at how well dumb rules can work, across an entire bull and bear market cycle. Indeed, in any given year, a simple approach will tend to look dumb. However, across an entire bull and bear market cycle, a dumb approach can work rather well.Rather than getting into complex futures-based approaches involving risk parity theories, etc, let's examine a simple, dumb, do-it-yourself approach.Here are the rules:I.

Why Is The Yield Curve Flattening?

Aug 10 2014 7:23am CDT | Source: SeekingAlpha

By Cullen Roche: Scott Sumner asks an important question - why is the yield curve flattening? Scott thinks it's because of a faster decline in the unemployment rate at a time when the pace of NGDP growth is slowing: "The rapid fall in unemployment explains why a rate increase is expected within less than a year, and the declining estimates of trend NGDP growth explain why rates are not expected to rise a ...
