August 20. The number of applications for unemployment benefits in the United States exceeded 1 million

The number of initial jobless claims rose unexpectedly to 1.106 million, according to the US Labor Department, fueling fears that the recovery in America's labor market could be delayed. Experts predicted a decrease in the number of applications to 925 thousand.

The number of Americans who submitted secondary claims for benefits fell to 14.844 million. The total number of people claiming unemployment benefits fell by 200 thousand, to 28.06 million.

The US authorities note that since the labor market is still weak, additional financial assistance will be required in the near future to support vulnerable families and the economy as a whole.

September 01. German authorities have improved economic forecast for 2020

The German authorities have improved their forecast for the outlook for the economy in 2020 amid signs of effectiveness in efforts to support and stimulate Europe's largest economy.

The German central bank expects the country's GDP to contract by 5.8% this year, while back in April it was predicted that the economy would contract by 6.3%. At the same time, the new forecast still does not rule out the onset of one of the most significant economic recessions since the end of World War II.

Meanwhile, the forecast for next year was downgraded. Experts expect that the German economy in 2021 will grow by only 4.4%, while the previous forecast assumed growth of 5.2%. Also, the Ministry of Economy of the country notes that Germany, most likely, will not be able to achieve pre-crisis GDP indicators until early 2022.

September 07. Johnson calls Brexit deadline

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that a Brexit trade deal with the European Union should be concluded by October 15. The politician noted that if the parties fail to reach an agreement by this time, then the free trade deal will most likely not be concluded at all.

According to Johnson, if the negotiations are unsuccessful, the UK will have a relationship with the EU similar to that of the EU and Australia, which is also a good result. In this case, Britain will have full control over its laws and regulations, as well as the conditions for the use of British fishing waters.

The Prime Minister also stressed that Britain is ready to find a reasonable agreement with the EU on practical issues, including flights, freight transport or scientific cooperation, even if a trade deal is not reached.

The post-Brexit transition period began for the UK on January 31, 2020 and will last until December 31, 2020. During this year, the EU and Britain should reconcile their future relationship. The next stage of negotiations is scheduled for tomorrow, September 8th.

September 09. In July, the number of vacancies in the United States increased to 6.62 million

Job vacancies in the US increased in July, with more workers leaving retail and professional and business services jobs due to concerns about COVID-19 infection and childcare concerns, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Labor (JOLTS).

The number of vacancies, which is an indicator of labor demand, jumped from 6 million to 6.62 million on the last day of July, the highest since May.

The JOLTS report follows last Friday's news that the US economy created 1.371 million jobs in August, after increasing 1.734 million in July.

September 14. OPEC downgrades forecast for global oil demand for 2020-2021

According to the September OPEC report, the organization downgraded the forecast for world oil demand for 2020 and 2021 by 0.4 million barrels per day. OPEC now expects a drop in demand by 9.5 million barrels per day this year and an increase of 6.6 million barrels next year. In 2020, demand is expected at 90.2 million barrels per day, and in 2021 – at 96.9 million.

The deterioration is mainly due to a decrease in the level of economic activity in several countries of the Asia-Pacific region due to an increase in the number of cases of infection with Covid-19. Oil demand in India, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines in the second quarter was much lower than initially expected. At the same time, the demand for oil in China in the second quarter exceeded expectations.

The organization notes that forecasts for demand may be lowered again due to the risks of a second wave of coronavirus in the world and the difficulties associated with vaccination. Moreover, the restrictions due to the pandemic and the operation of many businesses remotely could prevent the transport sector from fully recovering to pre-crisis levels next year.

September 17. The World Bank gave dates of the global economy recovery

World Bank Chief Economist Carmen Reinhart, speaking at the Trends 2021 online forum, said that the global economy will not recover from the coronavirus crisis until 2025.

Therein, in some countries the recession will last longer than in others. In particular, poor countries will be much more affected by the crisis, which could lead to an increase in the level of extreme poverty in the world from 8% to 9%.

In a June World Bank report, experts predicted the worst recession since World War II. According to them, the decline in the global economy in 2020 will be 5.2%.
