BRISBANE: Australia’s central bankers are set to revisit the question of whether to delay a planned taper of bond purchases as a worsening outbreak of the Delta variant dims prospects of a rapid economic rebound. Ten of 16 economists surveyed by Bloomberg expect the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) will defer scaling back quantitative easing (QE) today. That’s despite governor Philip Lowe saying after August’s meeting that the impact of such a move wouldn’t help the economy much and that the government was better placed to offer support. “The governor argued strongly in favour of the taper plan last month on the grounds that additional QE would largely impact 2022 growth – which still looks likely to be strong – and that fiscal policy was more appropriate,” said Andrew Boak, chief economist for Australia at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. “Both these arguments remain as valid as they were a month ago.” At its previous meeting in August, the RBA held on to its plans to scale back ... » Learn More about Australia faces renewed taper debate

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte is bewildered why the Senate blue ribbon committee is even listening to former police Col. Eduardo Acierto in discussing procurement issues, adding that the official has been dismissed by the Office of the Ombudsman. Duterte noted on Tuesday that Acierto has been dismissed twice — for his role in the anomalous Philippine National Police (PNP) gun licensing deal and in the alleged sale of AK-47 rifles to communist rebels. Acierto’s name popped up during the committee hearings about Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corp., after senators asked whether the person seen with Pharmally officials, Chinese businessman Michael Yang, and President Duterte is a certain Allan Lim who was implicated by the ex-cop as involved in the drug trade. “At isa pa (Another one).

And I do not understand why the Senate is listening to the person of Acierto,” Duterte ... » Learn More about Duterte to Senate blue ribbon: Why are you listening to dismissed cop Acierto?
