    US producer prices dropped sharply in July because of a steep plunge in energy costs. The producer price index, which tracks the prices that businesses receive for their goods and services, declined 0.5% in July from a month earlier, the first negative monthly print since April 2020. This was a sharp drop from June’s 1% increase in prices and was below analysts’ expectations of a 0.2% rise. 

    The People’s Bank of China said consumer inflation will likely exceed 3% in some months during the second half of the year but pledged to safeguard the economy. The PBoC’s second quarter monetary policy implementation report said the central bank needs to guard against structural inflation pressures and will not “flood” the economy with stimulus.
    Singapore has revised down its full-year growth forecast after the economy unexpectedly contracted in the second quarter. GDP in the April to June period shrank 0.2% compared with growth of 0.8% in the first quarter and missing analysts’ forecasts for growth of 0.3%. Year-on-year, the economy grew 4.4% in the second quarter, slower than the government’s 4.8% growth forecast in its advance estimate. Singapore’s Trade and Industry Ministry downgraded its full year growth forecast to a range of 3%-4% compared to a 3%-5% target made previously. 
    Latest government figures show Hong Kong's population fell by a record 1.6% in the past year, with a net outflow of people accounting for nearly 80% of the decrease. The city's population dropped by 121,500 from mid-2021 to 7,29 million in mid-2022. It's the second year in a row the population has dropped. Population expert Paul Yip, a professor from the University of Hong Kong’s Department of Social Work and Social Administration, said the outflow of people will have some significant impact on the workforce in Hong Kong and on economic development as the group of people leaving is mainly young graduates or young couples, who play a very critical part in the manpower of Hong Kong.
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Andrew Freris, CEO of Ecognosis Advisory and John Schofield, Managing Director, Tempus Investment. With a view from India is Toby Lawson, CEO of Societe Generale India.

    The Opec+ group of major oil producing nations have agreed to stick with production increases in a major win for President Biden and oil consumers. Opec+ members agreed to increase crude supply next year by 400,000 barrels a day, despite the oil price having fallen almost 20% in the past week. The decision comes after a high-level US delegation visited Saudi Arabia this week and called for more supply to bring down prices that until last week had doubled in 12 months and fuelled rising inflation in the US.
