  • IMF上调2017年日本增长率预期至1.5%

    日本, 2017/10/12 将2017年和2018年的日本实际国内生产总值(GDP)增长率预期分别上调为1.5%和0.7%,比7月时的数据调高0.2个和0.1个百分点。公告称“因由是2017年上半年经济形势好于预期”。由于动用财政推升经济形势的效果日益走弱,公告估计2018年增长率将收窄。     由于日美欧和中国经济有所好转,此次公告对全球整体经济的增长率预期也作出上调,2017年和2018年分别为3.6%和3.7%。与仅为3.2%的2016年相较,经济增长过程将加快。引发全球性金融危机的2008年雷曼危机后经济增长率持续低迷势头或将终于终止。     不过,IMF也对美国特朗普政府放宽金融监管导致市场不稳定还有以朝鲜核与导弹开发为代表的地缘政治学危及高涨表示警惕。公告称“中期性可能面临全球经济减速”,建议日美欧的央行在物价上升倾向明确前,继续推行支撑经济的货币宽松政策。     对于美国、欧元区和中国,IMF公告也上调了2017年和2018年的预期。公告解析称在美国,企业和消费者对经济前景信心正在增强;在欧元区,出口增加带动经济。并且估计中国政府2018年仍将继续展开大规模公共项目投资,对经济形成支撑。
  • RBI lowers economic growth projection to 6.7% in FY18

    INDIA, 2017/10/05 The Reserve Bank today lowered to 6.7 % the economic increase projection for 2017-18 from its August estimate of 7.3 % in view of issues with GST implementation and lower kharif output estimates. In its Fourth Bi-monthly Monetary Policy Statement, 2017 -18, RBI said the loss of momentum in initial quarter of the current fiscal and the initial advance estimates of kharif foodgrains production are early setbacks that impart a downside to the outlook on increase projections. The implementation of GST so far as well appears to have had an adverse impact, rendering prospects for the manufacturing sector uncertain in the short term, it said.
  • Return of the Tax Raid

UBS confirmed the raid and said no UBS employees are under investigation. The bank said it was cooperating, but wouldn’t comment further about an ongoing investigation.
