IMF board, citing increased credit exposure risks, raises reserve target
  + stars: | 2021-01-09 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund has agreed to raise the medium-term target for the fund’s precautionary reserves given a sharp increase in financial risks since 2018, the IMF said on Friday. The current target for precautionary balances of SDR 20 billion was also likely to drop below the indicative range this fiscal year and next. The IMF noted that some directors pushed for an even higher target, but did not identify them. The directors agreed there was no current need to accelerate the pace of reserve accumulation, although a few directors urged consideration of options to do so. The executive board noted that program design, conditionality, lending policies, and the fund’s preferred creditor status also help limit the IMF’s risk exposure.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday blocked the Trump administration from sanctioning human rights lawyers for supporting the work of the world’s war crimes tribunal, the International Criminal Court. Failla said the plaintiffs would likely succeed in showing that Trump’s order unconstitutionally stifled their speech, resulting in irreparable harm. The lawsuit was brought by the Open Society Justice Initiative, a New York-based human rights group, and the professors. A Biden administration may consider lifting those sanctions as it evaluates the use of sanctions in foreign policy, two sources said last month. The ICC has called Trump’s order an attack on international criminal justice and the rule of law.

REUTERS/Yuri Gripas/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund estimates that synchronized investment in infrastructure by Group of 20 major economies could boost global output by nearly 2% by 2025, a senior IMF official said on Tuesday. She said it was vital to bring the health crisis under control through international investment in vaccines, continue fiscal support to prevent cascading bankruptcies, and boost investment in green and digital infrastructure. At the same time, investment in digital and green infrastructure would lay the foundation for more sustainable and inclusive future growth. Overall spending could be a third lower to achieve the same outcome than if countries acted alone, she said.

The move prompted concern about the seriousness of the reforms and raised questions about the FBI's ability to check its work for mistakes. The FBI previously defended its decision to turn to a private company to make changes around FISA, but declined to explain what changed had prompted the cancellation. The FBI has quietly shelved plans to hire a private firm to help the bureau move beyond a spying controversy involving President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. The FBI declined on Thursday to explain what changes had prompted the cancelation. The issue was rooted partially in a "we're the FBI, trust us" attitude, the source added.

“Mobility is contracting as cold weather and virus fear keep the country indoors, employment growth is softening, and demand is increasingly hesitant,” wrote Oxford chief U.S. economist Gregory Daco. That's translated into slow or no growth across a variety of high frequency indicators being used to track the recovery. Meanwhile perhaps 9 million people are at risk of losing unemployment insurance benefits at the end of the year, another blow to the recovery. Employment data remains sluggish. Data on a sample of small businesses provided by time management firm Homebase joinhomebase.com/data shows employment through last week down more than 7% from mid-October.

(Reuters) - A federal judge in Michigan has declined to reprimand President Donald Trump’s campaign for submitting a court document that opposing lawyers said was purposefully misleading. REUTERS/Yuri GripasIn a four-page order issued on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Janet Neff said she would not strike the disputed document from the court record. Lawyers for the city of Detroit had asked Neff to strike the document as a way of sanctioning Trump’s campaign. Detroit’s lawyers said on Nov. 19 that the campaign included “impertinent and false language” in the filing. “With the filing of its motion, the City of Detroit’s factual position is part of the court record, and the Court, in its discretion, declines to impose the requested sanction,” Neff wrote.

REUTERS/Yuri GripasWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday that he and his fellow Senate Republicans have begun considering COVID-19 economic relief provisions that President Donald Trump would be willing to sign into law later this month. And I like to remind everybody that the way you get a result is you have to have a presidential signature,” McConnell added. The Kentucky Republican said that he and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy spoke with White House officials about what measures Trump would accept and that proposals are being circulated to Senate Republicans for feedback. McConnell said COVID-19 relief provisions would likely be combined with a must-pass measure to replenish government funding that is set to expire later in December.
