Three Ways Out of the SequesterCFR

The deal to avoid a US fiscal crunchThe A-list / FT
Barack Obama might prefer to focus his energies on immigration, gun control and education. But it is the tax and spending wars that still paralyse Washington, and the US is on the verge of a dismal solution – the sequestration. Unless a new budget deal can be agreed within the next few days, almost all forms of so-called “discretionary” spending, departmental budgets that the US Congress sets each year, will be cut equally and indiscriminately – beginning next week.

The Fed has opted for the lesser of two evilsThe A-list / FT
Mohamed El-Erian: Today’s world of dysfunctional politics is one that pushes central banks further away from their comfort zone and excludes the best possible responses. The resulting inconsistencies can only be resolved through a more comprehensive policy approach that deals directly with the West’s challenges of too little growth, too much debt, and too polarised a political discourse. In the meantime, central banks will have no choice but to opt for what they perceive as the lesser of two evils – that of maintaining a visibly imperfect policy stance.

Urpilainen ja Euroopan sosiaalinen kriisi Hannu Visti
Pampaksen nero Jutta Urpilainen on kiinnittänyt huomiota siihen, että Euroopassa saattaa “syntyä” sosiaalinen kriisi kun velkakriisi ei helpota. Ei se tietenkään helpota, koska mitään oleellista ei ole tehty, ainoastaan vääriä asioita.
