  • Fed's Kashkari: Maximum employment means at the very least back to pre-COVID levels of employment
  • Fed's Kashkari: - I am opposed to rate hikes at least through 2023 - The labor market is still in a deep hole; it will take some time to get people reattached to the work force
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed's interest rate dot plot has provided too-hawkish guidance in the past, I am in favor of getting rid of it - I don't believe the Delta variant of COVID will force the US to return to lockdown
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed is in a decent financial position, therefore it is fine to talk about tapering monthly asset purchases - I am not seeing evidence of unanchored inflation expectations, but if that does occur then we would need to adjust
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The benefits of reducing MBS purchases first would be modest - It may take longer than September to judge progress on labor supply
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Fed funds rate should remain unchanged through 2023 - When it is time to taper, the best case scenario is to stick to the same plan as before
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Inflationary indicators have been higher than predicted, but this is expected to be temporary - Although the success against COVID is inspiring, it is still too early to declare victory

Final Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures released today by the German Federal Statistics Office largely confirmed Flash estimates from earlier this month. The German economy grew a seasonally-adjusted 0.3 percent in the third quarter of 2015, matching the flash estimates. The year-on-year change in GDP also came in line with the flash estimates at 1.8% (1.7% when calendar-adjusted). The report confirmed the German economy continued to grow at a modest pace.

Looking into the report, German private spending increased 0.6 percent in Q3, above the 0.5 percent expected by economists and the prior revised 0.1 percent. Domestic figures showed an addition of 0.7 percent in Q3 versus the prior contraction of negative -0.2 percent. Government spending increased by 1.3 percent, above the expected 0.5 percent and the prior revised reading of 0.1 percent. These figures were considered as the main contributors to Germany’s growth in Q3.

On the other hand, net trade came at 0.4 percent, with imports printing a rise of 1.1 percent, above the expected 1.0 percent and well above the prior revised 0.5 percent. Exports rose 0.2 percent, below the expected 0.4 percent, and below the prior revised 1.8 percent. Capital investment shrank by 0.3 percent.

The report signaled that German domestic demand was able, at least for the moment, to counter negative pressures on growth stemming from weaker global trade, presumably led by a slowdown in China and emerging markets.
