A contested US presidential election is the most likely outcome

The three US election scenarios offered by our esteemed colleagues over at ING Economics are plausible – yet they omit the very scenario with the greatest potential for huge political and economic upheaval: A narrow but contested Biden victory.

Forget about a v-shaped recovery and prepare for long-term disruption

Dutch economy faces crucial fork at beginning of new year

So far, it has been one of the economies in the eurozone keeping up relatively well in the face of adverse developments in global manufacturing. But of late, the Dutch economy has caught the industrial flu, too, and faces a crucial parting of ways at the beginning of the new year: Whether there will be a sustainable truce in US-sponsored protectionism or not.

US Small Business Sentiment sours markedly

Helpful though they might have been, Donald Trump’s tax cuts not only have begun to wear off – his simultaneous trade spat with China and his readiness to plunge the federal government into as many shutdowns as it takes to get the funding for his pet border wall project have started to leave their marks on the US economy, too.

Brand-new: SiNGES updates as podcasts!

As of this June, updates of the SiNGES, our one-stop economic indicator for Singapore, will be available as podcasts, too.

Here’s the first edition:

Steep increase of South Korean minimum wage threatens to become counterproductive

Lately, the Korean minimum wage has become a bone of contention. Its increase of some 16 per cent to Won7,530 this year has been frowned at by economists and small businesses; in 2020, it is set to rise by yet a further, whopping 30 per cent plus.

Our volte-face on the US-Dollar: The Trump trade is dead

Though issued in February only, we have to do a complete, humble volte face on our bullish projection for the US-Dollar with regards to the crisis unfolding in the White House: The greenback’s story is no longer one of monetary policy, but politics.

Further deterioration of UK manufacturing PMI no surprise to our clients

Just when most observers got caught on the wrong foot regarding the further fall of the UK manufacturing PMI in March, all those following our UKES were not: That recent downturn in the UK’s factories was exactly as projected by our own indicator for the health of the UK economy. True, the sharp depreciation of Sterling has been being a boon to British manufacturers – but that effect is beginning to wear off. Ever more important for British factories will become the Brexit negotiations as they unfold, particularly regarding the all-important automotive sector with its very sensitive supply chains. The certain uncertainty all over the coming months stands to weigh hard on manufacturers’ confidence, investment, and hiring decisions, and the PMI is precluding that just as our UKES has been signalling it ever since the turn of the year.

Forget about a v-shaped recovery and prepare for long-term disruption

Dutch economy faces crucial fork at beginning of new year

So far, it has been one of the economies in the eurozone keeping up relatively well in the face of adverse developments in global manufacturing. But of late, the Dutch economy has caught the industrial flu, too, and faces a crucial parting of ways at the beginning of the new year: Whether there will be a sustainable truce in US-sponsored protectionism or not.

US Small Business Sentiment sours markedly

Helpful though they might have been, Donald Trump’s tax cuts not only have begun to wear off – his simultaneous trade spat with China and his readiness to plunge the federal government into as many shutdowns as it takes to get the funding for his pet border wall project have started to leave their marks on the US economy, too.

Steep increase of South Korean minimum wage threatens to become counterproductive

Lately, the Korean minimum wage has become a bone of contention. Its increase of some 16 per cent to Won7,530 this year has been frowned at by economists and small businesses; in 2020, it is set to rise by yet a further, whopping 30 per cent plus.

Our volte-face on the US-Dollar: The Trump trade is dead

Further deterioration of UK manufacturing PMI no surprise to our clients

Just when most observers got caught on the wrong foot regarding the further fall of the UK manufacturing PMI in March, all those following our UKES were not: That recent downturn in the UK’s factories was exactly as projected by our own indicator for the health of the UK economy. True, the sharp depreciation of Sterling has been being a boon to British manufacturers – but that effect is beginning to wear off. Ever more important for British factories will become the Brexit negotiations as they unfold, particularly regarding the all-important automotive sector with its very sensitive supply chains. The certain uncertainty all over the coming months stands to weigh hard on manufacturers’ confidence, investment, and hiring decisions, and the PMI is precluding that just as our UKES has been signalling it ever since the turn of the year.
