The U.S. budget deficit widened to $666 billion for the financial year 2016/2017 as record spending more than offset record receipts, the Treasury Department said on Friday. The 2017 deficit increased by 3.5 percent of gross domestic product. The previous financial year deficit was $586 billion, with a deficit-to-GDP ratio of 3.2 percent. The latest financial year, which ended September 30, straddled the presidencies of Barack Obama, a Democrat, and Donald Trump, a Republican. Accounting for calendar adjustments, the 2017 financial year deficit was $644 billion compared with $546 billion the prior year. Financial 2017 revenues increased 1 percent to $3.315 trillion, while spending rose 3 percent to $3.981 trillion. Since taking office in January, the Trump administration has sought to overhaul the U.S. tax code with precise details currently being worked on in Congress. The Republican tax plan currently calls for as much as $6 trillion in tax cuts, which would sharply reduce government revenues. It has prompted criticism that it favors tax breaks for business and the wealthy and could add trillions of dollars to the deficit. The administration contends tax cuts will pay for themselves by boosting economic growth. In addition to the annual deficit, the national debt- the accumulation of past deficits and interest due to lenders to the Treasury- now exceeds $20 trillion. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has said the ever-rising debt levels are unsustainable as the government pays for the medical and retirement costs of the aging Baby Boomer generation. For September, the U.S. government recorded an $8 billion surplus, a 76 percent drop from the same month last year. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the Treasury reporting a $6 billion surplus last month. When accounting for calendar adjustments, the surplus last month was $61 billion compared with an adjusted surplus of $73 billion the prior year. A senior Treasury official said outlays last month were a record for the month of September. Outlays were $341 billion, up 5 percent from the same month a year earlier while receipts totaled $349 billion, down 2 percent from one year ago. More»

Cryptocurrencies are not "mature" enough to be considered by the European Central Bank (ECB) for regulation, the bank’s president Mario Draghi said on Thursday. At a press conference last weekend, the ECB president addressed a question about the potential of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. "With anything that's new, people have great expectations and also great uncertainty. Right now we think that especially as far as bitcoins and cryptocurrencies are concerned, we don't think the technology is mature for our consideration," Draghi said. He expressed caution and said that while innovation should be "cherished for its potential benefits," it should also be "critically assessed" for risks. "One of the lessons of the great financial crisis is that financial innovation, in this case it's financial and technology innovation... should be embraced with lots of attention to its potential risks," Draghi told a room of reporters. Last month, in a statement to the European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, Draghi said the ECB did not have the authority to regulate cryptocurrencies. Interest in cryptocurrencies has exploded in recent months with many seeing sharp rises in price. There are now over 1,000 virtual currencies and regulators across the world have differing views on them. While Draghi appears to be taking a wait and see approach, China banned cryptocurrency exchanges. South Korea also put a stop to initial coin offerings (ICOs), a way for start-ups to raise money by issuing virtual tokens. Meanwhile, Abu Dhabi recently ruled that bitcoin is a commodity in the same vein as precious metals or fuels. Therefore, it remains unregulated. Japan, however, has allowed companies to accept bitcoin as payments. IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde told CNBC that cryptocurrencies could cause "massive disruptions" and that the organization wants to be a part of how they develop in the future. More»

Egypt’s Arab African International Bank has signed a financing deal with European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to finance small and medium-sized companies, sources with direct knowledge said Thursday. Since May, AAIB has been in ongoing talks with EBRD for a $60 million loan in addition to some other international financial institutions, sources in the Egyptian banks told Amwal Al Ghad in previous statements. AAIB has been also negotiating for a $50 million loan from the SANAD Fund for MSMEs, part of the German state-run Kfw Development Bank. The Egyptian bank had signed earlier this year another foreign loan worth $100 million from the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Several banks in Egypt had recently secured dollar-dominated loans from international financial institutions to bolster foreign currency liquidity. EBRD is studying giving a number of banks in Egypt new loans ranging between $200 million and $300 million within this year, said Janet Heckman, the managing director for the southern and eastern Mediterranean, in late May without disclosing the names of those banks. The loans are to support the development of small and medium-sized businesses as well as trade activities in Egypt, Heckman added in an interview with Amwal Al Ghad. More»

China will fend off risks from excessive optimism that could lead to a "Minsky Moment," central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan stated Thursday, adding that corporate debt levels are relatively high and household debt is growing too quickly. A Minsky Moment is a sudden collapse of asset prices after a long period of growth, sparked by debt or currency pressures. The theory is named after economist Hyman Minsky. China will control risks from sudden adjustments to asset bubbles and will seriously deal with disguised debt of local government financing vehicles, Zhou said. The People's Bank of China governor was speaking on the sidelines of China's 19th Communist Party congress. More»

China's central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan announced Thursday that he is likely to retire soon, confirming an earlier report by Reuters. "Either way it'll be soon," Zhou said on the sidelines of the Communist Party Congress, when asked whether he would retire this year or next. Sources with ties to the leadership and close the central bank had told Reuters that Zhou is likely to retire around the time of the annual session of parliament next March. China's top banking regulator Guo Shuqing and veteran banker Jiang Chaoliang are front runners to succeed Zhou Xiaochuan, the country's longest-serving central bank head, according the sources. More»
