Economist Wescott predicts early end to quantitative easing in US

first_imgThe US economy is humming along nicely – so nicely, in fact, that the Fed might well decide to hasten its exit out of quantitative easing (QE) this year, according to Robert Wescott, economics adviser to former US president Bill Clinton and head of economic research consultancy Keybridge Research.IPE sister publication IPNederland spoke with Wescott as he visited Amsterdam at the end of January on the invitation of Pioneer Investments.“In 2013,” he said, “US GDP growth came out at around 1.9%, and this would have been 3.8% if it hadn’t been for fiscal consolidation.“Fiscal tightening last year amounted to some 2% – the US government implemented more cuts in a single year than the administration [of UK prime minister David Cameron] did in its entire lifetime.” Robust growth of more than 3.5% cannot be reconciled with QE measures designed to speed up the economy.“Financial markets have been led to believe the Fed will opt for gradual tapering and keep interest rates near zero for an extended period of time,” he said.“They believe any real discussion about the Fed’s exit is set for 2015, not 2014.”But Wescott warned that they might be in for a surprise.“Although a 1.9% growth is not enough to knock the Fed off its gradual tapering path, chances are we’ll see significantly higher figures this year, as fiscal consolidation is no longer an issue, at least for the next two years,” he said.“I can easily picture an acceleration of the economy, where, suddenly, the Fed says ‘we are not going to taper by $10bn every six weeks – we’ll just cut QE in half by 50% today’.”A sudden withdrawal rather than gradual tapering is likely to throw the markets into turmoil and will no doubt hit emerging markets.But emerging market troubles have no significant impact on the US economy and will not be taken into consideration, according to Wescott.“This may not be what people want to hear – and I personally think we should think more carefully about the exit ramifications – but the reality is the Fed bases its decision only on what is good for the US.”Increasing the likelihood of a 2014 exit – Fed chairman Ben Bernanke’s successor may be a dove, but the contingent of hawks within the Fed is gaining strength, said Wescott, who counts himself among the hawks.Stimulating the economy is fine as long as the economy needs the boost, he said, but no longer.“As the US economy is gathering steam,” he added, “those measures bear close monitoring.”last_img read more

Rangers postpone resumption

first_imgRelatedPosts 2020/2021 Season: Rangers set resumption date Rangers FC retire late Ifeanyi George’s jersey COVID-19: Rangers extend break by two weeks The management of the Flying Antelope, Rangers International FC, has announced the postponement of the resumption date for returning and new players for the 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League season.After a brief management meeting on Monday, the General Manager/CEO, Prince Davidson Owumi, announced the postponement. Owumi said it became necessary due largely to the current announcement from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on health protocols.He said: “We are a law-abiding institution and will in no way flout laws put in place by a well constituted government body like NCDC and PTF.“The earlier information at our disposal made us make our earlier announcement for our players to return, but with further clarifications from NCDC and PTF, we are compelled to direct our players against returning to the players’ camp.“When we get clearance, they will be informed of when to return.”Old and new players of the club had been instructed to report for duties last the weekend, following earlier information on the lifting of suspension on football activities, but with the latest directive reversing the earlier order, the management decided to halt for the resumption of activities in compliance with the COVID-19 health protocols.

Vikings choose rookie Chisena for speed on special teams

first_img COMMENT LIVE TV First Published: 8th September, 2020 06:38 IST Associated Press Television News Dan Chisena was the only undrafted rookie the Minnesota Vikings kept on their initial active roster for the regular season. The former Penn State track star was simply too fast to let slip away.The Vikings have six other wide receivers in front of Chisena on their depth chart, so he’s unlikely to see much if any time with the offense this year. There’s no guarantee how long he’ll stay with the team, either, particularly in this pandemic-altered season.The 6-foot-3, 202-pound Chisena was deemed worthy of a spot for now, though, because of the impact he can make on special teams coverage units with his speed, toughness and instinct.“I just tried to embrace that and put as much into that as I was into offense,” said Chisena, who even spent a few days last week practicing at cornerback so the coaches could gauge his potential there in the attempt to find a place for him on the roster.“We feel like he’s got a chance to be a premier special teams player,” coach Mike Zimmer said. “So hopefully he can get 20 or 25 plays a game.”Chisena came to Penn State with the plan to be a two-sport athlete, but the NCAA doesn’t allow football participation as a walk-on while also receiving a scholarship in another sport. So he hung up the helmet for two years to focus on track and help his family financially.He missed football too much, though, having started in the sport in third grade. His parents unhesitatingly agreed to help pay for school after giving up his scholarship, a decision to return to his first love for the 2018 and 2019 seasons triggered in part by a junior-year injury in track.Chisena was clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.32 seconds during the pre-draft preparation process, a not insignificant reason why the Vikings signed him this spring.“God opens up some amazing doors,” Chisena said on Monday in a video conference with reporters.One reason why Chisena was given a look as a defensive back was a lack of depth at safety, but Zimmer downplayed that on Monday and said more roster shuffling this week was likely in advance of the season opener on Sunday against Green Bay. He also noted that a safety on the practice squad could be promoted for the game, or that a cornerback could play there in a pinch, like Terence Newman did for the Vikings a few years ago.The Vikings claimed linebacker Ryan Connelly off waivers from the New York Giants, who drafted the native of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and product of Wisconsin in the fifth round in 2019. They began the week with three empty spots on their practice squad.Connelly started three games for the Giants last year before a season-ending knee injury. He had 20 tackles, one sack and two interceptions in four games.Image credits: AP Last Updated: 8th September, 2020 06:38 IST Vikings Choose Rookie Chisena For Speed On Special Teams Dan Chisena was the only undrafted rookie the Minnesota Vikings kept on their initial active roster for the regular season.
