Surprise surge in Australian jobs to test super-easy monetary policy
  + stars: | 2021-06-17 | by ( Wayne Cole | ) + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
Thursday's data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) showed 115,200 net new jobs were created in May, far above forecasts for a 30,000 gain. Full-time jobs jumped by 97,500 and hours worked rose sharply, pointing to expanding output. The RBA has been the odd man out as other rich world central banks turn more hawkish, notably the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. The surprise jobs data came just after RBA Governor Philip Lowe argued that wages would remain subdued for some time, in part due to a widespread focus on cost cutting by firms. Yet the May data showed unemployment already down at 5.1%, when the RBA had not expected to reach 5% until the end of this year.

London (CNN Business) Britain's antitrust regulator is investigating whether Ryanair and British Airways broke the law by refusing to refund customers for flights that they could not legally take during coronavirus lockdowns. In a statement on Wednesday, the Competition and Markets Authority said that the airlines may have breached consumers' legal rights by refusing cash refunds on flights that went ahead during periods of lockdown. During coronavirus lockdowns, the UK government made it illegal to travel abroad for non-essential reasons. These restrictions were lifted on May 17, although the government is still advising against travel to certain countries.

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) tried on Monday to put a brave face on election losses in an eastern stronghold where its anti-immigration line failed to chime with voters' concerns. Under surveillance in Saxony-Anhalt for suspected anti-democratic activity, the AfD is shunned as a potential coalition partner by all other national parties. REUTERS/Annegret Hilse/PoolIt also found that many left-leaning voters had voted tactically for the CDU in order to block the AfD. He was notably absent from a news conference with hardline co-leader Tino Chrupalla and Oliver Kirchner, who heads the AfD in Saxony-Anhalt. A prickly Chrupalla, asked why AfD leaders had differing views on the election result, said:"I don't see the difference between a respectable result and a sensational result.

By far the world's largest vegetable producer, China has used greenhouses for decades, but food supply disruptions sparked by coronavirus lockdowns in 2020 have accelerated the development of high-tech glass greenhouse facilities. Plastic greenhouses help shield crops, but are considered less efficient than glass greenhouses. BYPASSING THE MIDDLE MANHistorically, China's vegetable production was concentrated in certain areas and required complex cold chain logistics networks for food to reach major cities' wholesale markets. Greenshouse-grown produce is usually sold directly to e-commerce platforms and supermarkets, bypassing the many middlemen and wholesale markets that are a traditional feature of China's vegetable supply chain. "The biggest challenges are people, people who have the knowledge to manage greenhouses to produce quality vegetables," he said.

“A robust recovery is expected in 2021 supported by ongoing vaccinations although large uncertainty remains,” the Fund said in statement released at the end of its annual visit to Italy. “Continued policy support will be necessary until the recovery takes hold”, IMF added. The Fund said Italy’s budget deficit for 2021 was now seen at 11.8% of GDP, up from 8.8% projected in April, and in line with a government’s estimate for a double-digit deficit, which was last experienced in the early 1990s. As the coronavirus crisis pushes up government spending, the Fund also revised up the fiscal gap for 2022 to 6% from 5.5% of GDP, near Rome’s projection of 5.9%. For 2022 the IMF expects public debt to stand at 157.9% of GDP, above Italy’s estimate of 156.3%.

Hong Kong (CNN Business) China's plan to build its way out of the pandemic is pushing its carbon emissions to record highs, new research has found. As a result, China's emissions generated nearly 12 billion metric tons of CO2 in the year ending March 2021, a record high. Recent data from Carbon Monitor has shown an uptick in China's carbon emissions, too. The global CO2 emissions tracker said the country's emissions in the first quarter increased 21% year-on-year, fastest among the world's major emitters. Time may be running out for Beijing to tame the surge in its carbon emissions so it can meet interim climate targets.

Aerial images of Kea island also known as Gia or Tzia, Zea, and, in antiquity, Keos, is a Greek island in the Cyclades archipelago in the Aegean Sea. LONDON — Andreas Patiniotis can't help sounding cheerful as Greece once again welcomes tourists back to the country. "I'm very happy," said the owner of four hotels in one of Greece's most iconic holiday destinations, Santorini. And that feeling is spreading across this entire sunny nation, with the economy relying heavily on international visitors. In 2020, Greece's gross domestic product sank more than 8% and a large part of that was due to the lack of tourists.

REUTERS/Kai PfaffenbachEssilorLuxottica (ESLX.PA) posted a 14.3% rise in first-quarter sales on Thursday powered by a strong rebound in China and the United States as the maker of Oakley and Ray-Ban sunglasses targets a full recovery from the pandemic this year.

(CNN) Remember that pandemic baby boom some thought we'd see about nine months after coronavirus lockdowns swept across the US? A more detailed breakdown of government birth data also shows the largest decline in births occurred in December. Even before the pandemic, US births were decreasingDemographers have said a combination of factors -- fewer births, more deaths and less immigration -- were already combining to slow the nation's population growth. Additional data released Wednesday shows the trend of declining births and fertility rates in the United States is continuing. The decline in births caused by the pandemic, coming after years of decreasing birth rates, could add up to significant shifts in society, Levine says.

Puma sees sales hit from China backlash and freight delays

BERLIN (Reuters) -German sportswear company Puma expects a consumer backlash against Western brands in China and congestion at ports to hit its sales though it gave an upbeat outlook for 2021 following a strong first quarter. There is less activity in the Western brand stores than there would have been if tension wasn’t there,” Puma Chief Executive Bjorn Gulden told reporters. Before the backlash, Puma’s sales in greater China had been growing strongly, rising 40% in the first quarter. Western governments and rights groups have accused authorities in the western region of Xinjiang of detaining and torturing Uyghurs in camps. Nike last month reported quarterly sales below estimates due to shipping issues and the pandemic-related slump at stores, forecasting “low-to-mid-teens” full-year revenue growth.

Recent economic figures do point to a stronger-than-expected economic recovery, and further coronavirus lockdowns across the euro zone won't likely warrant further action by the central bank. "A change in policy stance is unlikely," said Mark Wall, a chief economist with Deutsche Bank, in a research note. PEPP sped upIn the wake of the pandemic, the ECB launched its Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program, or PEPP, which buys bonds in the region to stimulate lending and fuel an economic recovery. "PEPP purchases were 74 billion euro in March," Wall explained. "This was significantly higher than the 53 billion euro and 60 billion euro in February and January."
