to take the delayed effect of balance sheet reduction conducted earlier into its consideration of rate cuts. The current phase-out of balanc
上海会所e sheet reduction already has some easing effect, and only after the balance sheet reduction ends in September, can its impact become clearer.
By incorporating that impact into consideration, the Fed can draw up a better rate cut plan that maximizes effects of the policy mix.上海会所
Thirdly, the market may have overestimated how much the Fed will cut the rates. There may be no more than three rate cuts by the end of 2020.
St. Louis Fed President James Bullard – the major advocate of this
round of rate cut – has suggested the use of the modern-day Taylor rule, which fairly well explains th上海会所
e Fed’s interest rate decisions. Even based on this model adopted by dovish Fed officials, we found that the degree of rate cuts may be weaker than m
上海会所arket expectation for quite some time going forward: at most one cut by the end of this year and likely two or three cuts by the end of 2020.
By contrast, before the June FOMC meeting, the market expected a higher-than-85-percent chance of more than one rate cut by the
end of this year as well as an about 60-percent chance of more than three cuts by the end of 2020, according to Bloomberg data.上海会所品茶微信
In conclusion, we think as economic downside pressure gradually emerges, the Fed will have to kick off the rate cut cycle. But the rate cut si上海会所品茶微信
gnal, timing and degree may not measure up to the market expectation. Therefore, two future developments appear possible:
First, investor sentiment can reverse drastically if the Fed’s action fails to meet market expec上海会所品茶微信
tation. Considering the market has fully priced in the unrealistic expectation of rate cuts sinc
e early June, any reversal of expectation can lead to short-term fluctuations of key price signals such as the US Treasury yield cu
rve, the US Dollar Index, and the gold price, which may pose extensive spillover shocks to asset portfolios.
Second, the long-term trend of rate cuts will continue even if the market expectation reverses. In the long
run, the Fed is expected to proceed with rate cuts in a fairly slow and smooth way. This will enlarge the monetary policy room of ot
her major economies and expedite the shift toward an easing global monetary environment, which may in turn lift the sen
timent of global stock markets and ease any currency risk of emerging markets gradually.

Stern said the G20 nations can promote sustainable economic growth and development, reduce poverty and improve living standards across the world.
“But they must move quickly and on scale,” he said. “The climate crisis is real and now; delay will be profoundly dangerous.”
Kevin Gallagher, director of the Global Development Policy Center at Boston University, and Richard Kozul-Wright, director of the Division
on Globalization and Development Strategies at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, have appealed t
n our cities, whe上海千花坊品茶微信re more than half the world’s population now lives and 70 percent of GDP is cre

The G20 nations must lead by example on this imperative, Stern said, and especially the world’s two biggest economies, the US and China.
“China is demonstrating leadership through its significant investments in zero-carbon energy, particularly rene

Stern also noted that China can provide even greater leadership through the Belt and Road Initiative if it e
ncourages the application of robust sustainability tests to investments in new infrastructure in partner countries.
allowed 94 stu上海乌托邦品茶微信dents into the tent and accommodated the rest at a home for the elderly in the town.
Music, fine arts and composition classes were given in the tent classroom.
In the music class, Zeng Yingtian taught the students how to sing As Resilient as Bamboo.
Written by a high school teacher in Changning, the song said quake-affected people would
not cry, even if they shed tears, as they were uncrushed bamboo and green hope would arise from the debris.
In the fine arts and composition classes, students were told to draw pictures of people involved in earthquake relief and write w
ords of gratitude. Some of the students sent their drawings to policemen and people in charge of quarantine.
Since the earthquake, the Changning quake zone has received donations of more than 100 million yuan from companies and individuals.

vice by October, an increase in the number of China’s ETC users will make the 90 percent passage via ETC
a reality by year-end, the action plan said.
Starting from July 1, 2019, the country will strictly implement the poli
cy of granting a discount of no less than 5 percent off expressway tolls for ETC use
rs. By the end of the year, the number of ETC users is expected to top 180 million, the action plan said.
The plan calls for increased investment in building the ETC infrast
ucture to increase the proportion of ETC lanes, which should be no less than 70 percent by
the end of October for big and medium-sized cities, new towns and sites near scenic spots.
Given that some vehicles may not have installed ETC devices by yea
r-end, expressways will still offer some manned lanes, accepting mobile payment.
