U.S. FEDERAL RESERVE STRUGGLES TO REVIVE ECON GROWTH

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on January 28, 2009

PUBLISHED BY ‘THE MANILA TIMES’ (Philippines)

WASHINGTON, D.C.: The US Federal Reserve wraps up a two-day policy meeting Wednesday focused on new tools to revive a moribund economy that has so far failed to respond to its zero-interest rate policy.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting was being held six weeks after the central bank slashed its base-lending rate to a range of zero to 0.25 percent and predicted “exceptionally low” rates to persist.

An announcement was due around 1915 GMT Wednesday.

Joseph Balestrino at Federated Investors said he expected some clues from the Fed on additional efforts to get credit flowing in the economy.

“There’s not much more the central bank can do on the monetary policy front after having lowered its target federal funds rate to a record low,” he said.

“What may be worth noting is the language the Fed uses to describe the state of an economy that, since the two-day meeting that ended December 16, appears to have worsened on most every front.”

Balestrino said Fed chairman Ben Bernanke and his colleagues “are likely to be more explicit about their plans for quantitative easing—that is, using measures such as direct injections into banks and purchases of debt securities to pump more capital into ailing institutions and the markets.”

Sacha Tihanyi, analyst at Scotia Capital, said the market expects the Fed to take further action to help fire up growth.

“With rates going nowhere for some time, the market’s focus will be on whether the Fed will be looking to buy government—or corporate—securities in the near future,” Tihanyi said.

“This is a highly controversial step and some see this as somewhat of a high-risk policy but on the other hand, it is one of the few avenues the Fed has left open to it with regard to further easing monetary conditions.”

Despite the zero-rate policy, Bernanke and others have repeatedly said the central bank is not out of ammunition to fight the crisis. But Bernanke avoided the use of the term “quantitative easing,” saying the Fed has engaged in what he called “credit easing” to spur more lending activity.

The Fed “has already done a lot and will continue to do a lot” in addition to moving on interest rates, said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight.

The central bank has already offered exceptional aid to banks and other firms, and has been buying up mortgage-backed bonds and commercial paper to help unfreeze credit in those areas.

Analysts say this has helped somewhat but that credit markets remain under stress, with lenders and consumers skittish about taking on new risks.

Morgan Stanley economist Ted Wieseman said he expected nothing dramatic from the Fed meeting.

“Obviously rates have already been cut about as low as they can go,” he said.

“If long-end [Treasury bond] yields continue surging higher, the Fed will undoubtedly eventually step in and start buying, but such an announcement probably wouldn’t come in an FOMC statement.”

Economist Joseph LaVorgna at Deutsche Bank said the Fed might not yet be ready for direct purchases of US Treasuries.

“Even though we believe the Fed will eventually be forced to purchase Treasuries in an attempt to cap their yields we do not believe the Fed is going to announce those intentions today,” he said.

He said some members might be uncomfortable with what could be seen as a drastic step.

“Rather, we expect the Fed to repeat the ‘committee is evaluating the potential benefits of purchasing longer-term Treasury securities.’”

Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James & Associates, said each word of the Fed statement would be weighed and parsed carefully.

“The wording of the policy statement will signal future intentions,” he said.

“In each statement, the Fed describes its economic outlook. A darkening in that outlook would likely mean that further stimulus efforts are coming. A brighter outlook would suggest that policy will become less accommodative.”

OBAMA COMMITTED TO ‘GREEN’ ECONOMY (USA)

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on January 28, 2009

PUBLISHED BY ‘THE MANILA TIMES’ (Philippines)

LOS ANGELES: The Obama administration is pushing forward with plans to aggressively limit greenhouse gas emissions PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMAand fight global warming, US media reported.

The plans would include a cap-and-trade initiative to limit greenhouse gases and raise the cost of pumping more carbon into the atmosphere, the Los Angeles Times said Sunday (Monday in Manila).

Under the initiative, the government would set limits on carbon emissions by power plants, factories and other installations, but allow those who emit more to buy or trade permits with companies and facilities that emitted less than the prescribed limit, according to the newspaper.

But the move would amount to a tax, raising energy costs. And several independent studies have suggested that emissions limits would only increase energy price and be a drag on economic growth, at least in the short term.

Despite such fears, the Obama government believed that a “clean energy economy” move would spur competition and promote investment in renewable alternatives to imported oil.

Two-pronged plan

The administration is expected to move forward with a two-pronged effort to stimulate renewable energy supplies and ensure demand for the megawatts they would produce, the newspaper reported.

The first part is to invest heavily in wind power, solar power and biofuels through the massive stimulus bill, while the second is to help those forms of energy compete with cheaper fossil fuels by pumping up fossil fuel costs to reflect the potential economic damage from global warming, according to the paper.

“If we don’t put a price on carbon,” said Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee. “We’ll never get these clean energy sources on line.”

Instead of dragging the economy, the plan to limit greenhouse emissions would stimulate the economy and “allow polluters to transition from a high-polluting environment to a low-polluting environment,” said Andy Stevenson, a former hedge fund manager who is now a finance advisor for the Natural Resources Defense Council in New York City.

THE NUMBERS ARE HORRIFYING (USA)

THE NUMBERS ARE HORRIFYING

On Tuesday, President-elect Barack Obama inherits an economic calamity, and the situation will get worse in the first few months of his presidency regardless of what he does. How quickly it improves thereafter is not just a matter of which policies he decides to pursue; importantly, it is also a function of how he pursues them. Investors need to pay close attention lest they experience yet another challenging and, in some cases, devastating year.

No one should doubt that we are still in the midst of a historic economic crisis. Having incurred massive losses, individuals and companies around the world are, not surprisingly, saving more—some by choice as they attempt to restore balance to their finances and others by necessity as their credit lines are cut by beleaguered lenders. As detailed elsewhere in this edition of NEWSWEEK, the world has entered an Age of Thrift. Less spending by individuals will mean even lower demand, and the production of goods and services will be cut, again.

The latest economic data vividly illustrate the self-fulfilling nature of this global phenomenon. The numbers are horrifying, and increasingly so. There’s been a violent collapse in industrial production in Europe; the latest monthly data now show annual contractions of 17 percent in Spain, 13 percent in the U.K., 9 percent in France and Italy, and 6 percent in Germany. Emerging economies are now on the same course, with contractions of 9 percent in Russia and 4 percent in Brazil.

At the same time, the labor market is deteriorating dramatically in both Europe and America. The United States has now registered 12 consecutive months of job losses, including more than half a million in December, bringing the 2008 total to 2.6 million—a level not seen for more than 60 years. The crisis continues to catch people by surprise, suggesting that too few people sufficiently understand its dynamics. The U.S. Commerce Department reports that December retail sales declined at more than twice the rate expected by most forecasters, and further extended the record for consecutive monthly declines, now six .and counting. President elect Obama faces the prospect of more corporate defaults, pension losses and personal bankruptcies in the coming months. Fortunately, he has already shown that he has a good understanding of the need for an aggressive fiscal stimulus, and Congress seems to be onboard.

Without massive public stimulus, there is little chance of countering the highly disruptive consequences of a too sudden and too prolonged ascent of the Age of Thrift.

Yet there is a risk that this consensus could break down in quibbling over the details. Specifically, we should stop the bickering over whether to cut taxes or raise spending. Both are required. The tax cuts should work mainly through employment channels, including a cut in the payroll tax as this will directly help employment and limit the fall in consumption. Government spending should focus on sectors that will quickly raise resource productivity, like infrastructure, which helps lower production costs, and social services, which raise human productivity overtime.

Obama also needs to step up efforts to alleviate the credit crunch. This is not about an immediate recovery in the banking system. It won’t happen. The sector is too damaged to act as a conduit of funds to the general economy. Instead, the government must come up with more imaginative ways to provide direct financing, particularly for mortgages and some areas of consumer finance.

Obama’s economic appointments suggest that he understands how important it will be to get the design and implementation of these policies right. The highly capable Larry Summers and Tim Geithner should focus on coming up with a master plan to lead the country out of the crisis. This will ensure that the immediate measures implemented are consistent over time with a resumption of economic growth and rising productivity.

Managing expectations is also more important than ever. In his remarks on the financial crisis in November and December, Obama came across as informed, committed and careful not to over-promise. Yet his efforts have been largely negated by recent talk out of Washington of regulatory clampdowns, potential abrogation of property rights and other non-market solutions. The president-elect will have to step up quickly to the challenge of consistently better communication if he is to instill the confidence that is critical for a meaningful economic turn later this year.

Finally, Obama should signal clearly that he knows a global dislocation requires a global response. What was a U.S. financial crisis has morphed into a challenge to the international market system. An effective solution will not materialize unless the United States takes a policy leadership role on the global stage. It’s a role no other country can credibly play. With Obama as president, the world is exceptionally welcoming to U.S. leadership. He must seize this opportunity for the economic good of America, and the world.
