USA Economic Data
The ISM Manufacturing PMI for the United States is likely to come at 55.1 from 54.9 a month back as we can see a steady growth in new orders, employment and inventories which offset the slower growth in production. In April 2017 the orders for the durable goods and other household items rose to touch a new three years high.I am expecting the positive sentiments prevalent in United States to have grown stronger in recent days after the victory ofNew US President Mr. Donald Trump which effectively means the United States ISM Manufacturing PMI will keep on rising for next couple of months.
Chicago Purchasing Managers' Index of the United states is expected to come at 58.5 which will mark the straight 15th month of expansion after showing a below 50 reading in the month of February 2016.

The global economy is in turmoil and central banks from the breath and width of the globe are struggling to spur economic growth in 2016. They have deployed most the weapons in their arsenal in a desperate attempt to spark economic growth, including negative interest rates and massive stimulus packages but the much need growth remains elusive. Consequently, central banks are looking for new ways to spark economic growth, and the use of unconventional means such as "helicopter money," have become topical issues.
This article seeks to demystify the concept of helicopter money, making it clearer and easier to understand to the ordinary person.

What is Helicopter Money?

Helicopter money is a reference to an idea made popular by the American economist Milton Friedman in 1969 in his paper “The Optimum Quantity of Money.”
The basic principle is that if a central bank wants to raise inflation and output in an economy that is running substantially below potential or targeted levels, one of the most effective tools would be simply to give everyone direct money transfers.

Crystal balls have been used for scrying since time immemorial. Scrying is the art of looking into a reflective surface, such as glass, water, a mirror, or a crystal, to gain mystical insight. The images of the gypsy fortune-teller gazing into her crystal ball and divining someone’s future is so popular. Along with this image comes the common misconception that crystal balls have magical powers that enable them to foretell the future, but rather images from deep within one’s subconscious mind, and the crystal ball is the door through which these subconscious thoughts can be accessed.
Likewise the leading indicators have been used to as a door to access the ‘subconscious mind’ of the economy to gain a better insight of what the future holds and do not necessarily foretell the future. This article looks at the leading indicators from the United States and what they may be suggesting about the future of that economy.
What is a leading indicator?
A leading indicator is a measurable economic factor that changes before the economy starts to follow a particular pattern or trend. These are useful to predict changes in the economy, but they are not always accurate.

Oil had a roller-coaster year in 2014 with prices dropping to multi-year lows. If the story were to be dramatized, ‘How the mighty has fallen’ would be a perfect title. Unlike other commodities, oil has a great influence on the global economy as it is a key component in all the sectors.
This article looks at the story behind the oil price fall and how the low oil prices have impacted the global economy.
Oil Price History
Fig 1: Historical prices of crude oil
Fig 1 shows the historical prices of crude oil from 1946 to date exhibiting huge swings. The volatility in the price can be explained by key events in history.
  • From 1948 through the end of the 1960s, crude oil prices ranged between $2.50 and $3.00.
  • The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) was formed in 1960 with 5 founding members. By the end of 1971, six other nations had joined the group.
  • The Yom Kippur War started on October 5, 1973. By the end of 1974, the nominal price of oil had quadrupled to more than $12.00.
