THE annual inflation rate in the United States surged to 9.1% in June, the highest since November 1981, from 8.6% in May and above market forecasts of 8.8%, according to the US Bureau of Labour Statistics.

But despite being under increasing pressure to reduce, if not altogether lift, the punitive tariffs on Chinese imports to ease the inflation, the Joe Biden administration is yet to take a final decision.

High inflation has caused a sharp increase in prices of energy, especially petrol, natural gas and fuel, food and durable goods.

And the historical high inflation can be attributed to several factors including the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) aggressive monetary policy, which raised its balance sheet assets to about US$9 trillion (RM40.12 trillion) from about US$4 trillion (RM17.83 trillion) in early 2020.

Unfortunately, the annual growth rate of the consumer price index, a key measure of inflation, in the United States may remain between 7% and 8% this year.

The impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the global supply chains, too, contributed to the high inflation in the United States.

Domestic supplies of goods and services in developed economies such as the United States and the European Union have fallen short of meeting the demands for quick recovery, with congestion at ports and inefficiency of the supply chains, combined with high tariffs, aggravating the supply shortage.

While the Russia-Ukraine conflict has driven up global energy prices, dealing a blow to the country on wheels that is the United States, which has suffered from the rising consumer price index (CPI), severe labour shortage has forced companies to raise employees’ salaries to recruit and/or retain workers, pushing the US economy into an inflation-salary hike spiral.

This has raised concerns that the US economy could soon enter into recession.

Will these factors prompt the United States to lift the tariffs on Chinese goods to curb inflation?

Indeed, the Biden administration is making efforts to bring inflation down, particularly before the midterm elections in November.

The US administration has adjusted monetary policy, and the Fed has raised the interest rate to 1.5% to 1.75% and it could further increase it all the way up to 3% to 3.5% this year.

No doubt, the United States needs to take emergency measures to help deal with the disruption in global supply, reduce tariffs on Chinese products and enhance global cooperation.

But amid all these developments, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) slashed the United States’ growth forecast for 2022 to 2.3% on July 12 from 3.7% in April and 2.9% in June.

      @-魂殇   证券时报网讯,海南省住房和城乡建设厅等9部门发布关于加快发展保障性租赁住房的实施意见。《实施意见》明确,支持银行业金融机构发行金融债券,募集资金用于保障性租赁住房贷款投放。支持企业发行企业债券、公司债券、非金融企业债务融资工具等公司信用类债券,用于保障性租赁住房建设运营。企业持有运营的保障性租赁住房具有持续稳定现金流的,可将物业抵押作为信用增进,发行住房租赁担保债券。引导商业保险资金按照市场化原则参与保障性租赁住房建设。在把控风险的前提下,探索在保障性租赁住房领域开展不动产投资信托基金(REITs)试点工作。这是一篇很OK的文

    尽管上半年非投资等级债不免因避险情绪出现震荡,然而创新科技引领全球产业趋势,财务状态比多数受到景气循环影响的公司还要来得更稳健,长期违约率更低、即信用品质较佳,因此预期第四季美国升息进入尾声后,创新科技非投资等级债可望引领整体债市、并展现价值面回升契机。看好这个哦
