    Fed Implements Rate Hike, Maintains Outlook for Next Hike

    The US Federal Reserve has pushed through with its planned interest rate hike for this month while outlining its plans to continue with stricter monetary policies in spite of the country’s weak inflation rates. FOMC officials approved the central bank’s third rate hike within a six-month period and hinted at possibly another rate hike just before the end of 2017. Fed Chair Janet Yellen stated in a press conference following the announcement that the bank’s plans of unwinding its policies might be implemented sooner than later, especially if the country’s economic status meets the expectations of the Fed. Moreover, the central bank is also looking into a three-quarter point rate increase for 2018 just like its previous projection last March.

    Aussie Economy can Grow Further, says Philip Lowe
    RBA Governor Philip Lowe thinks that the Australian economy will still be able to grow further if the country’s officials will be able to overcome several political hurdles, although he also warned that disappointing wage gains data will most likely to continue plaguing developed countries. Lowe also stated that the central bank believes that the country’s economic growth will continue advancing during the next two years due to an overall surge in the status of the international economy. The political environment within Australia has become more and more polarized over the years, as parties attempted to gain an unfair electoral advantage from losing reform proposals. This has prevented the Australian economy to properly implement any kind of economic reform since 2000’s goods and services tax.

    UK Loses First Round of Brexit Talks to EU Bloc

    The EU bloc dominated the first round of Brexit negotiations as UK officials cowered and retreated as EU’s chief negotiator cautioned that the British government will be dealing with substantial consequences should they chose to completely remove themselves from the union. UK PM Theresa May has already consented to the EU’s terms and conditions during the first day of the talks, although they have yet to discuss the trade deals between the European common market and Britain. However, EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier warned the UK bloc that this process would be a slow and arduous one, a complete antitheses to May’s hopes of a quick conclusion to the free trade agreement between the two blocs.

Meanwhile, members of the Democratic bloc have staged a protest last Monday as part of their collective dissent towards these closed-door meetings of the Republican bloc.

    Theresa May Offered “Fair and Serious” Rights on EU Citizens

    Theresa May, British Prime Minister of Britain, said to the leaders of European Union that EU citizens who came legally prior Brexit happenings are authorized to stay in Britain giving them a new ‘settled status provided that they have spent five years living in the UK.

    PM May had spoke concurrently as the dinners end during the EU leaders' summit held in Brussels, stating that the United Kingdom agreed to deal with the “cutoff point” between March 29 of the current year, the date when she formally invoke Article 50, until the preferred period of the European Commission until March 2019.

    This is the opening offer of May for the future citizen rights. Both nations, UK and EU wants to iron out the issue during earlier negotiations

    European citizens who are part of this special status can acquire the same rights when it comes to NHS care, pensions and work along with other public services that British people have.

    May mentioned in an interview with The Guardian that "The UK's position represents a fair and serious offer, and one aimed at giving as much certainty as possible to citizens who have settled in the UK, building careers and lives and contributing so much to our society,"

    According to the report, the offer is dependent on the reciprocal pledge regarding the privilege of 1.5 million UK citizens who are presently residing somewhere in Europe had failed to reach its target with the EU’s demand in maintaining the continuity of the entire EU rights. But, the British country did not accept the demand of EU to grant the European Court of Justice to take the role as the guarantor.

    ECB Helped Taper Off Inequality, Says Draghi

    ECB President Mario Draghi argued in a statement last Monday that the central bank’s efforts to maintain the union’s low interest rates has actually helped to taper off inequality rates within the eurozone and minimize unemployment rates. In a conference at a Lisbon university, Draghi stressed that the easy-money stance of the central bank has helped to curb the “highly-destabilizing” inequality levels in the EU, although several German officials in the past have repeatedly questioned this easy-money stance, as this apparently endangers pensioners and savers. This statement from Draghi comes at a very delicate time for the central bank as the ECB is now in the process of halting certain policies, including its negative interest rate program and its €2.3 trillion or $2.6 trillion bond-buying scheme.

    Sluggish Growth Prediction for Developed Countries

    A U.S. central banker forewarned that advanced economies and financial institutions in the United States will face a slower economic growth for long-term unless fiscal officials do something to counter this. Although, this comes surprisingly since the Federal Reserve just increased its interest rates earlier this month and intend to do more rate hikes gradually to prevent overheating of the economy. This also indicates positive growth of the economic outlook.

    Federal Reserve president John Williams said that this optimism will only last for short-term and will change over time. With the sluggish growth, this gives a hard time for monetary policymakers to curb inflation and sustain full employment. This leaves the central bank with no choice but to rate hike since low growth trims the demand for investment and further push down the interest rates.

The latest growth numbers are part of the annual review made by the IMF to the American economy which is released on June 27. Report says the forecast was trimmed down because it was clearly stated that various parts regarding the expenditure project and administration tax are still ambivalent.

    With these concerns, the institution said that the final decision is made in order to abate any assumptions concerning the programs of Trump will get the Congress approval and rather to work with predictions that ongoing policies will remain consistent.

    EU Leaders Urge Germany to Increase Expenditure

    Germany is anticipated to grow by 1.8 percent this 2017, as indicated in the estimate of the International Monetary Fund, while the trade surplus continued to rise.

    The stable development of the German economy was linked with the same advancement in government expenditure with a 0.8 percent record on fiscal surplus in 2016.

    A group of finance ministers was going to discuss at their monthly meeting about the fiscal stance of the EU in 2018 since some urged to influence the budgetary decisions of the 19 EU-member states.

    The effort of the European Commission to make a slight development on fiscal policy for the entire euro area within this year was fulfilled by the German opposition, however, dropped afterward.

    Prior the discussion on the 2018 policy, the Economics Commissioner Pierre Moscovici claimed that the logical basis of fiscal stimulus remains despite firm growth in the euro area.
