to take the delayed effect of balance sheet reduction conducted earlier into its consideration of rate cuts. The current phase-out of balanc
上海会所e sheet reduction already has some easing effect, and only after the balance sheet reduction ends in September, can its impact become clearer.
By incorporating that impact into consideration, the Fed can draw up a better rate cut plan that maximizes effects of the policy mix.上海会所
Thirdly, the market may have overestimated how much the Fed will cut the rates. There may be no more than three rate cuts by the end of 2020.
St. Louis Fed President James Bullard – the major advocate of this
round of rate cut – has suggested the use of the modern-day Taylor rule, which fairly well explains th上海会所
e Fed’s interest rate decisions. Even based on this model adopted by dovish Fed officials, we found that the degree of rate cuts may be weaker than m
上海会所arket expectation for quite some time going forward: at most one cut by the end of this year and likely two or three cuts by the end of 2020.
By contrast, before the June FOMC meeting, the market expected a higher-than-85-percent chance of more than one rate cut by the
end of this year as well as an about 60-percent chance of more than three cuts by the end of 2020, according to Bloomberg data.上海会所品茶微信
In conclusion, we think as economic downside pressure gradually emerges, the Fed will have to kick off the rate cut cycle. But the rate cut si上海会所品茶微信
gnal, timing and degree may not measure up to the market expectation. Therefore, two future developments appear possible:
First, investor sentiment can reverse drastically if the Fed’s action fails to meet market expec上海会所品茶微信
tation. Considering the market has fully priced in the unrealistic expectation of rate cuts sinc
e early June, any reversal of expectation can lead to short-term fluctuations of key price signals such as the US Treasury yield cu
rve, the US Dollar Index, and the gold price, which may pose extensive spillover shocks to asset portfolios.
Second, the long-term trend of rate cuts will continue even if the market expectation reverses. In the long
run, the Fed is expected to proceed with rate cuts in a fairly slow and smooth way. This will enlarge the monetary policy room of ot
her major economies and expedite the shift toward an easing global monetary environment, which may in turn lift the sen
timent of global stock markets and ease any currency risk of emerging markets gradually.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer
上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.
The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊
urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.
Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信
“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con
sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp
ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊
The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B
oeing for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.
上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept
2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”
上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa
rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c
ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.
Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi
a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.
Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo
rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter
mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.
According to Sic爱上海品茶微信huan Provincial People’s Hospital, the 5G emergency rescue system,
which integrates artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality and drone applications, allows a series of me
dical checks including blood tests, electrocardiograms and ultrasounds to be given to patients right away. The inf
ormation can then be transferred back to the hospital in real time, which greatly saved time in rescuing patients.
The rescue system also helped another 72-year-old patient who got a fracture in the earthquake. According to report from China
news.com, a temporary ward supported by 5G technology was established at the epicenter of the di
saster zone for consultation with doctors from Chengdu, as the aged patient had a previous history of high blo
od pressure and cerebral infarction, which necessitated more careful treatment.
“The 5G-based network thoroughly solved the problems of poor
definition and distortion of images, as well as interrupted signal transmissions,” said Li W
ei, deputy director of the emergency center of Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital.
Wang Aiqin, one of Li’s granddaughters, said that Li has four sons who
take care of her in rotation every month, along wi
th her three daughters. Li can remember all her family members but is slightly deaf.
Li enjoys good relationships with her neighbors, and is healthy, having used to be a farm worker.
She lives a routine life and does regular exercise, while her diet
consists mainly of porridge, steamed buns and vegetables, Wang said.
“She likes to watch some TV programs of traditional operas, and we bought her a TV set,” Wang said.
