FX-MM’s monthly look at the economic issues affecting sentiment in global markets and their implications for the major currencies.
The global economic crisis has affected countries differently, but the impact on growth has generally been the same – i.e. broadly negative. The inter-dependency between economies has never been stronger than it is today and the resultant currency fluctuations that we are seeing are an additional hurdle that some countries are struggling to overcome in order to get their economies back on track. With few other options available, central banks are using quantitative easing, low interest rates and other forms of intervention to support governments which have little choice but to cut spending, thereby potentially slowing their economic growth further.
UK takes aggressive approach to reducing its national debt: The UK, for example, has been focusing heavily on reducing its national debt over the last two years. The government’s efforts towards this objective have had such an impact on the economy that growth, according to FSA chief Lord Turner, could be impacted for years to come. The Bank of England has had very little room for manoeuvre and has engaged in further stimulus, but the effectiveness of this strategy is now being called into question.
