    Business and Market Discussion / View from Japan

    Hong Kong shares plunged Monday and equity markets in Europe and the US slumped as the crisis at indebted property developer China Evergrande deepened and contagion rippled across financial markets. Shares of Evergrande and its subsidiaries tumbled along with other real estate stocks and bank and insurance shares which are seen as being affected by the fallout. Last week, Chinese authorities told major lenders not to expect interest payments from the firm this week. 

    US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said unless Congress raises or suspends the US debt ceiling, the government will run out of money to pay its bills sometime in October. Writing in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, she said "the overwhelming consensus among economists and Treasury officials of both parties is that failing to raise the debt limit would produce widespread economic catastrophe."
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Mark Michelson from IMA Asia and Will Denyer of Gavekal. With a view from Japan is Tokyo-based journalist and author, William Pesek.

    Business and Market Discussion / US economy

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has made a plea for more fiscal stimulus from Congress saying providing too little support for the American economy would be far more dangerous than offering excessive help. He said, “the recovery will be stronger and move faster if monetary policy and fiscal policy continue to work side by side to provide support to the economy until it is clearly out of the woods.”

    However, shortly afterwards President Trump said he’s ending negotiations with Democrats over a Covid-19 relief bill and will only resume talks after the election. He tweeted, “Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 trillion to bailout poorly run, high crime, democrat states, money that is in no way related to COVID-19. We made a very generous offer of $1.6 trillion and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith.”
    Immediately after the announcement US stocks shed their gains and turned sharply lower. The S&P 500 index erased a gain of 0.7% to close down 1.4%. US stocks fell further in after-hours trading after a Democratic panel of House representatives proposed a series of far-reaching antitrust reforms to curb the power of technology giants Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Alphabet, which they say enjoy monopoly power. This could include separating parts of their businesses and banning them from buying smaller companies.
    The US trade deficit has risen to its widest level in 14 years. Imports rose 3.2% in August, outstripping a 2.2% increase in exports and the trade deficit rose to US$67bn.

    Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust warns that the worst for the global economy is yet to come, as many countries around the world are still assessing the economic impact of Covid-19.

    Tariq Dennison, Portfolio Manager at GFM Asset Management supports further stimulus to boost the US economy and hopes that future relief packages will be targeted at the most stricken sectors.

    RTHK's International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood says that US President Donald Trump's decision to abruptly end stimulus relief talks with Democrats comes as a surprise to both sides of the political divide.
