The Guardian (April 12)

“Japan does not especially want to deliver the prestige of the first major global sporting event since the pandemic started to China.” Cancelling the Olympics would also place “billions of dollars at stake.” But “set against that are the lives that could be lost…. Undoubtedly, the cancellation of the Games would lead to disappointment and financial losses. However, these factors must be weighed against any risk that the Olympics could make the pandemic worse.”

“Global equity markets surged on Thursday, with U.S. and European benchmark indexes hitting record highs, as the strongest manufacturing data around the world in decades and a drop in bond yields drove investor optimism.” Support is strong with “multiple tailwinds— stimulus, expectations of record earnings, vaccines—driving stocks higher.”

“To global portfolio managers, the Tokyo stock market has spent the past few years looking ever more like an old curiosity shop. Everyone knows there are bargains galore in there but who can be bothered to study the cluttered and poorly labelled shelves.” Perhaps Warren Buffett will finally show money managers the way into “overlooked Japan.”

Global investors have “sold $4.5 billion of Indian shares since June, on course for the biggest quarterly exodus since at least 1999.” That’s roughly a tenth of their total investment during the previous six years. “India’s economic growth has decelerated for five straight quarters.” India could now experience “a structural slowdown that pummels the country’s $2 trillion stock market, throws a wrench into growth plans of international companies from Amazon.com Inc. to Netflix Inc.,” and diminishes job prospects “for the millions of young Indians who enter the workforce every year.”

 

Wall Street Journal (March 20)

2019/ 03/ 22 by jd in Global News

“Global investors, who have enjoyed an excellent start to 2019, received some unsettling news from FedEx Corp.” The “weak results from the shipping giant bode poorly for the global economy, and investors don’t seem ready for a slowdown.”

 

LA Times (November 4)

2017/ 11/ 05 by jd in Global News

“The global climate is in trouble, worsening faster than experts believed only two years ago, and ambitious international steps to address the problem have been insufficient thus far.” Since the Trump administration isn’t going to tackle this critical challenge, “the rest of us need to step up.”

“By and large, the Web is now a gigantic global software platform. And by extension, modern Web design is no longer Web design; it’s product design.”

 

Institutional Investor (October Issue)

2014/ 10/ 19 by jd in Global News

“Six years ago the common threat of a global financial collapse inspired a collective response that averted a depression. Today the threats seem to be coming from everywhere, and they are geopolitical as much as economic.” This makes any coordinated solution “hard to imagine.”
