UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'The waiting game'

What have we learned this week? Remarkably little. Economists have been wrestling with real-time economic data that has become progressively less reliable as structural change has swept the economy. Now the aftermath of the first bank runs of the Twitter era only adds uncertainty. The future depends on two hard-to-predict behaviors: will bank investors and depositors keep moving their money? And if they do, will loan officers respond by tightening lending standards? Central banks will know...


UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Limbo dancing'

Economics now enters a limbo period. The data flow that we get over the next few weeks relates to the period before the recent financial volatility. There is considerable uncertainty over how the real economy is affected by that volatility. The optimistic case is that larger banks do not tighten bank lending standards dramatically, and consumers carry on more or less as before. The pessimistic case is that lending standards tighten, consumers are forced to spend using only their falling real...

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Is the Fed's long policy error almost over?'

The Federal Reserve raised rates 0.25% yesterday, as expected. Fed Chair Powell signaled they may be close to the end of the rate hiking cycle—acknowledging stricter bank lending standards are a form of tightening. Arguably the longest policy error since New York Fed President Strong in the 1920s is nearly over (the error was not the rate hikes, but the fanatical "hike, hike, hike" mentality without pausing to assess the damage being done).

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'A comedy of errors'

The Federal Reserve delivers its policy decision today. Estimates of the outcome should not be described as forecasts—economists can only guess at what will happen. The fact that we are guessing policy for the world’s reserve currency is the result of the Powell Fed’s comedy of errors.

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Slowing and credit'

Early March export data from South Korea showed a fairly large drop in exports, led by weakness to China. The fact that developed economy consumers have been prioritising service sector spending over goods spending is well established—and record global manufacturing supply is meeting slowing goods demand. However there are some signs that a floor may be close.

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Getting the recycling habit'

The ECB raised interest rates 0.5%, and signalled that future policy would be data-dependent. One would hope that in any well-run central bank, policy would always be data dependent. ECB President Lagarde was asked about the role of profits in driving inflation—the answer was not terribly insightful. Raising rates should tackle profit-led inflation, but it is an unnecessarily destructive way of achieving that goal.
