Thursday’s attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman caused jitters in global markets and unease across a region that has been bracing for conflict throughout much of the year. As with the

The deputy governor, Ben Broadbent, said the Bank’s health check on the UK economy in early May showed it warranted higher interest rates than financial markets currently expect.

Capitalism used to promise a better future. Can it still do that? | Richard Reeves 22 May 6:00am Capitalism used to promise a better future. Can it still do that? | Richard Reeves
The greatest challenges to capitalism come when that promise begins to be questioned Capitalism is intrinsically futuristic. The ideas that underpin market economies – growth, accumulation, investment – express an unspoken assumption, that tomorrow will be different, and probably better, than today. The question that murmurs through markets is not “What is good?” or “What is fair”, but: “What’s new?” This future orientation is one of the most striking hallmarks of modernity. Pre-capitalist societies looked to the past – to founding myths, old religions and ancestral lines. Capitalist societies look to the future – to new inventions, broader horizons and greater abundance. “Oh, the places you’ll go!” is an urtext of market capitalism.

The most serious threat to emerging economies is a US recession | Barry Eichengreen 11 Apr 2:00am The most serious threat to emerging economies is a US recession | Barry Eichengreen
Recent respite for China, on which other emerging markets are highly leveraged, could be short-lived Suddenly it seems that emerging-market economies have gained a respite. Capital flows to these economies dried up in the second half of last year as the US Federal Reserve raised its policy rate for five consecutive quarters and shrank its balance sheet. But in January, the Fed announced a pause, which now looks to be extended: the dot plots of Federal open market committee members currently indicate no rate rises for the remainder of the year. Moreover, the Fed has signalled that “quantitative tightening”, the process of allowing treasuries and mortgage-backed securities to roll off its balance sheet, will continue only through September. This means merciful relief for emerging economies, which have been buoyed by the resumption of capital inflows. A replay of the second half of last year, much less of the 2013 “

Why has the US Fed turned away from interest rate rises? | Nouriel Roubini 18 Mar 11:04am Why has the US Fed turned away from interest rate rises? | Nouriel Roubini
Stalling inflation and a need to show independence have pushed it to a dovish stance The US Federal Reserve surprised markets recently with a large and unexpected policy change. When the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) met in December 2018, it increased the Fed’s policy rate to 2.25%-2.5%, and signalled that it would raise the benchmark rate another three times, to 3%%-3.25%, before stopping. It also signalled that it would continue to unwind its balance sheet of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities indefinitely, by up to $50bn (£38bn)per month. But just six weeks later, at the FOMC meeting in late January, the Fed indicated that it would pause its rate rises for the foreseeable future and suspend its balance-sheet unwinding sometime this year.
