By: Merryn Somerset Webb 23/05/2019 After all, that’s where populations are growing; where the West’s manufacturing is migrating too; and where new middle classes are emerging. Right? Maybe. Or maybe not. The latest Barclays Equity Gilt Study suggests something rather different. Population growth is not much higher in emerging markets than in developed ones, for example, so the idea that demographics can drive growth in the latter but not the former holds no water. More importantly, however, technological progress is in the process of flipping from “supporting faster emerging-market growth through globalisation to undermining it”. Until recently it made sense to shift your manufacturing abroad: you could take advantage of cheap labour costs, but use technology to manage the complicated supply chains and logistical challenges that came with doing so.But if you are looking at things afresh today, it doesn’t make so much sense.

(Was this email forwarded to you? Sign up here .) Breaking down the speech In his 82-minute address last night, President Trump cited U.S. economic growth and his efforts to keep it up, while attacking opponents in a speech that ostensibly called for unity in Washington. Here are the highlights for the business world: Mr. Trump defended his economic record. He took credit for America’s robust economic health — a key message for his 2020 re-election campaign — and assailed critiques of his administration’s efforts, including tax cuts and loosened regulations. “An economic miracle is taking place in the United States — and the only thing that can stop … [Read more...] about DealBook Briefing: What the State of the Union Means for Business
By: John Stepek 20/12/2018 Will we live long enough to see Brexit? Is the US dollar heading for a bear market? Will wages take off in 2019? John Stepek asks the experts at our Christmas Roundtable. John Stepek: How will Brexit affect markets next year? Jim Leaviss: Since the 2016 referendum, sterling has already weakened substantially. On the Big Mac index, it’s one of the world’s cheaper currencies. And we don’t have that doom loop that existed in the US in 2008 after the Lehman Brothers crash, whereby falling asset prices created more panic. Now if sterling falls a bit… Tim Price: …it just boosts FTSE 100 earnings. Jim L: Exactly. If anything, weaker sterling helps. So I don’t think we have that to worry about.

Bank of England governor Mark Carney’s worst-case scenario for commercial property was the one that Jim Mellon: Yes, but how good has … [Read more...] about What to invest in as the bear market in shares kicks in

Supported by Strategies ByJeff Sommer Nov. 16, 2018 The stock market has been plummeting and my own retirement portfolio has been shrinking. Am I worried? Sure. But I’m still buying stocks. Week after week lately, I’ve been stubbornly funneling part of my paycheck into diversified equity mutual funds in the hope of long-term gains, knowing full well that I’ve been losing money. It’s not because I’m confident the market will start a big rally soon. I’m sticking with stocks precisely because I have no idea where the market is heading, and the statistics show that mistiming market rallies is excruciatingly costly. And I’m doing it out of faith in the future. Over the long run, the … [Read more...] about The Market’s Been Falling. I’m Putting My Money in Stocks Anyway.
