That will mean more rapidly turning research into health recommendations, working better with other parts of government and improving how the CDC communicates with the public. -Bloomberg

* Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin said Friday that more interest rate increases will be needed to tamp down inflation.
* Barkin said he wants to see inflation running around 2% “for a period of time.” The current level is far from that goal.
Markets are divided over whether the Fed will increase by three-quarters of a point in September or scale down to half a point, with traders tilting slightly toward the latter, according to CME Group data Friday morning.
Whichever is the case, Barkin said acting aggressively now is important. He said his constituents are deeply concerned about inflation and want action from the Fed.
“Consumers really dislike inflation, and one message that I get loud and clear as I wander around my district is, ‘we don’t like inflation,’” he said.

Ten- and 30-year Treasury yields soared on Thursday after the latest signs of easing U.S. inflation buttressed a more optimistic outlook on the U.S. economy.
Meanwhile, the spread between 2- and 10-year rates narrowed to minus 34.1 basis points, a less deeply inverted level than earlier this week.
Markets are pricing in a 59.5% probability that the Fed will raise interest rates by another 50 basis points to a range between 2.75% and 3% at its Sept. 20-21 meeting. The central bank is mostly expected to lift borrowing costs to at least a range of 3.5% to 3.75% by March, according to fed funds futures traders.

Ford Motor Company is the latest automaker to announce a price hike for its electric vehicle (EV) due to "significant material cost increases and other factors."
The Detroit automaker adjusted the MSRP on the F-150 Lightning for the first time since it was revealed in the spring of 2021. Since then, industrial metal prices for batteries, including nickel, manganese, cobalt, and lithium, have jumped, forcing the automaker to raise the new EV truck prices by up to $7,000, depending on the model.

It is very simple: if you’d ask most citizens of whichever EU country if they are willing to risk being unable to feed and heat their children in order to support Ukraine and Zelensky, they would say NO. Hell no! But that is what they’re all being pushed towards.
This is not due to some inevitable market mechanism, it’s because the west decided to halt all Russian imports after the latter’s Special Military Operation in Ukraine. All western leaders found that reason enough to cut all, or nearly all, imports from Russia. Gas, oil, fertilizer, food. Essentials.
The WEF makes sure no western leader gets elected who is not a member of their club. There’s only one path to power these days.
“Leaders” like Trudeau and Rutte think they have this under control, that they can make the farmers do what their governments say they must, if need be with assistance from police or even the army.

- Raise rates enough so all those old people leaving the work force will have some interest income/pensions.
- Reduce consumer inflation (food, energy, housing).
- Wage growth (which remember not too long ago they were trying to poke along) comes not too hot, not too cold, but just right.
- While labor market stays strong.
- Supply chain issues find a new balance.
- And markets get comfortable with growth outlooks and valuations.
Bonds don't lie.

Biden Touts Jobs Report as White House Insists Economy Strong
President Joe Biden said the unemployment rate falling to pre-pandemic lows was “the result of my economic plan” as the White House sought credit for surging jobs gains that bolstered the president’s insistence the nation has not fallen into recession.
Biden feels well, still tests positive for COVID-19 - doctor
U.S. President Joe Biden continues to feel "very well" while still testing positive for COVID-19, the White House physician said on Friday.
... and will continue to follow "strict isolation measures." - foxnews
The #jobs report is good news for the #WhiteHouse, and will be seen as validating their policy approach.
A few blocks away at the #Fed, however, it’s neither. Instead, it’s consistent with lagging policy and a central bank that’s on the wrong side of ongoing analytical debates.

and bit of a setback to powell's "adjustment" in labour market dream
"We think it's necessary to have growth slow down. We actually think we need a period of growth below potential, in order to create some slack so that the supply side can catch up. We also think that there will be, in all likelihood, some softening in labor market conditions. And those are things that we expect...to get inflation back down on the path to 2 percent." Powell last week.

UK inflation will soar to ‘astronomical’ levels over next year, thinktank warns - The Guardian Aug 3, 2022
The rise will force the Bank of England to hike interest rates higher and for longer than previously expected, says NIESR
The National Institute of Economic and Social Research also forecast a long recession that would last into next year and hit millions of the most vulnerable households, especially in the worst-off parts of the country.
NIESR said gas price rises and the escalating cost of food would send inflation to 11% before the end of the year while the retail prices index (RPI), which is used to set rail fares and student loans repayments, is expected to hit 17.7%.

Controversial former German chancellor calls for activation of Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
“If you don’t want to use Nord Stream 2, you have to bear the consequences. And they will be huge in Germany, too,” he told Stern. “If things get really tight, there is this pipeline, and with both Nord Stream pipelines there would be no supply problem for German industry and German households.”

Federal Reserve officials effectively pushed back against a narrative in financial markets over the past week that policymakers are envisioning a pivot away from tightening amid evidence of a turn in the economy.
Four Fed district-bank presidents highlighted in remarks on Tuesday that there was no sign yet of inflation easing. San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly said “we are still resolute and completely united” in the objective of getting inflation down around the 2% inflation target.
Remarks from Daly, Cleveland’s Loretta Mester, and Chicago’s Charles Evans helped trigger a surge in Treasury yields Tuesday as traders reconsidered how much more the central bank will raise interest rates and whether it could move to cut them in early 2023.

[Forex View] How to Trade in a Politically Driven Market
Political markets are generally difficult to trade as there is often a short shelf life before whatever crisis is dominating is diffused. This suggests going with the flow while the market is on high alert but be aware that the factors driving it can fade quickly.
Typical safe havens in times of risk-off and political stress are the dollar, jpy and chf. It is important to see whether any are correlating with moves in equity and/or bond markets.
So, the bottom line is that politically driven markets can be traded if in sync with what is driving the flows but can be a difficult experience if you overstay your welcome doing so or get caught by a surprise headline. The latter suggests you need to be light on your feet as the market will have a tendency to overreact to news.
