Joseph Andersen's insight:
International Money Fund managing director Christine Lagarde over the weekend warned that attempts by the U.S. Federal Reserve to wind down its $85 billion-a-month bond purchasing program could negatively affect emerging markets. “Very negative spill-over effects on the emerging market economies could very much backfire on other economies. So to assume that [the] domestic economy is totally isolated, that a country is an island, would not be the right approach,” Lagarde told CNBC in an interview. “Without necessarily changing the mandate, without reviewing the terms of references, and maybe without even acknowledging it, I cannot believe that central bankers do not take into account what’s happening elsewhere in the world,” she added. Countries with emerging markets, that is, countries that are experiencing rapid economic growth, include China, Russia, and India: Much of the Group of 20 (G20) conference held in St. Petersburg, Russia, this month focused on ultra-loose monetary policies in the world’s leading economies. Finance ministers are split over when leading governments should draw down the easing programs (i.e. “tapering”). However, Lagarde added, many policymakers in emerging economies are comfortable with the idea of tapering. She added that policymakers in emerging economies blame recent slowdowns in economic growth on poor structural reform, poor trade, and “capital outflows,” as CNBC puts it. “On the other hand, the advanced economies acknowledged that the tapering of the unconventional monetary policies, though left to the central banks, had to be orderly, well communicated and had to be done in dialogue with other economies of the world,” Lagarde said. Leaders at the G20 summit also made sure to extend the moratorium on any new “protectionist measures” from 2014 to 2016. “The leaders agreed to not enter into any protectionist measures for the next two years, until 2016. That was a matter for debate; not everyone agreed,” she said. “Some were prepared to commit until 2015 but no further. They agreed to rally around 2016, no protectionist measures. That’s a big achievement as well,” she added. “Protectionism” refers to when a government adopts polices that restrict or restrain international trade in order to protect domestic businesses from foreign competition.

Economist: U.S. labor market recovery is a fraud

University of Central Florida economist Sean Snaith has this to say about the current labor market recovery: It’s a fraud.

 

That’s because there’s more to assessing economic recovery than just monthly payroll job gains and a declining unemployment rate, he said.

 

“You need to look at the number of jobs being created in the context of the potential number of workers in the U.S. economy,” Snaith said. “The gap between payroll employment and the Congressional Budget Office estimates of the potential number of workers in the U.S. economy is pretty darn scary right now.”

 

If payroll job growth were to persist at the average level of the past three jobs reports and increase at just 148,000 jobs per month, it would take until December 2021 for employment to reach its CBO estimated potential, he added.

 

In his 2013 third-quarter U.S. forecast, Snaith explains that by just focusing on the unemployment rate, many analysts erroneously are predicting a fast recovery that’s simply not there yet.

 

That’s why it’s not surprising that consumers are holding back on spending, which in the past has brought the economy out of the doldrums, he said.

 

Snaith was only one of four national economists to predict that the federal Reserve Bank would continue to funnel billions of dollars into the market on a daily basis as a way to help stimulate the economy and not begin tapering that process until 2014.

 

“Will the Federal Reserve’s exit be more like Ginger Rogers gliding across the dance floor or Miley Cyrus awkwardly twerking remains to be seen,” Snaith said. “But given the phony labor-market recovery it could be some time before the Fed hits the dance floor.”
