    Business and Market Discussion / View from India

    The Biden Administration is ramping up its calls for a global minimum corporation tax. Yesterday it laid out proposals for the world’s largest multinational companies to pay levies to national governments based on their sales in each country, regardless of whether they have a physical presence in the country.

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said yesterday that he would like to see “a string” of months with strong jobs growth of about 1m for the US economy before considering tapering the central bank’s US$120bn a month of asset purchases. Speaking at the IMF and World Bank spring meetings, he said the Fed was still far from achieving “substantial further progress” towards its objectives of stable prices and full employment.
    On Wall Street overnight, US stocks hit record highs boosted by the tech sector after Jerome Powell reassured investors that the Fed is still a long way from tapering its asset purchase programme. The S&P 500 index closed at a new all-time high for the second day in a row rising 0.4% to 4,097.
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Francis Lun of GEO Securities and Patrick Bennett at CIBC World Markets. With a view from India is Toby Lawson from Societe Generale India.

    Francis Lun, CEO of GEO Securities thinks that the US effort to agree a global minimum corporation tax rate will not be supported by some other countries such as Ireland which has a low headline tax rate of 12.5%.

    Patrick Bennett, Macro Strategist at CIBC World Markets expects sustainable growth in Mainland China over the next 5-10 years and believes it is beneficial for the global economy.

    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.
