UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Financial systems need to function'

The principle objective of any central bank must be to ensure the financial system functions. Policy will not transmit to the real economy if the financial system is paralysed. The Bank of England was confronted with a financial system that was increasingly paralysed in consequence of the UK government’s fiscal policy, and took action. The emergency bond purchases do not set a ceiling for UK government bond yields and are not inflationary—there has been a surge in liquidity demand, requiring...

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio Much to ‘closely monitor’

Russian energy supplies to Europe are in focus, with Russia attempting to annex parts of Ukraine and a leak conveniently developing in the Nordstream gas pipeline. The Nordstream gas pipe casing is around 15 centimetres (6 inches) thick, making it unlikely that Russian President Putin accidentally banged a nail through it. Cutting off gas to Europe is perhaps less likely to create consumer inflation (as consumers expect governments to offset price consequences), making the growth impact of...

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'MMT takes a pounding'

The global signals from the UK’s mini-budget matter. Modern monetary theory has been taken into a corner by the bond markets and beaten up. Advanced economy bond yields are not supposed to soar the way UK gilt yields rose. This also reminds investors that modern politics produces parties that are more extreme than either the voter or the investor consensus. Investors seem inclined to regard the UK Conservative Party as a doomsday cult.


UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Mortgaging the future'

Financial markets remain displeased with the UK government. US Federal Reserve President Bostic warned that UK-inspired uncertainty risked a global recession. Popular attention focuses on the weakness of sterling, every tourist can understand exchange rates. Memories of the ERM debacle mean emergency rates to defend sterling are unlikely, but more aggressive scheduled rate hikes are coming.

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Economics trussed up by ideology'

Today’s UK mini budget signals an international trend. Fewer people join political parties in advanced democracies, causing political parties to be more extreme relative to the political centre and policies to be more ideological. Markets view today’s UK mini-budget as shaped more by ideology than economics.

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Pavlovian dystopia'

The US Federal Reserve raised interest rates 0.75 percent, but Fed Chair Powell’s comments signaled a more hawkish tone - admitting a risk of a recession of unknown severity. The outstanding aspect of Powell’s comments was that there was no explanation of how policy tightening will work.


UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Is it all the fault of the Fed'

The US Federal Reserve is expected to increase rates by 0.75 percent. The June policy errors trashed forward guidance and elevated the (unworthy) consumer price inflation measure as a policy objective. This has left markets skittish and inclined to overemphasize poor quality data.

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Food and fuel'

Japan’s August consumer price inflation rose to 3 percent year over year. This is still a food and fuel story - on an international calculation of the core measure, inflation is running at 0.7 percent year over year. Japanese official core inflation includes non-fresh food, globally, this has been an area of some profit margin expansion and thus inflation.


UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Does hiking rates work?'

Financial markets are focused on the US Federal Reserve policy decision this week. The focus is ‘how big is the hike?’ not ‘will hiking rates cut inflation?’. The Fed’s June policy errors included a focus on consumer price inflation. More and more of CPI is made up of prices that monetary policy has less and less influence over. The Fed is forced to create more disinflation and deflation in the areas where policy does have an influence.
