    ECB preview: Worried, vigilant but waiting
    The European Central Bank's meeting today will note the lower inflation outlook, the recent turmoil in the financial markets and the international economy's dark clouds. The ECB will probably mention the increasing monetary aggregates and play time for now – but it will have to step up its asset purchases in the future.

    Sliding Aussie dollar a hostage to global forces
    Australia's economic growth came in under market expectations, at 2% year-on-year, well below trend. There is a good case for the Austraian dollar to "adjust" a lot more yet – that is, fall.

    IMF's two reasons why first-half global growth is weak

    The IMF said on Wednesday that moderate global growth in the first half of the year is reflective of two elements: a slowdown in emerging economies and weak recovery in advanced ones. "In an environment of rising financial market volatility, declining commodity prices, weaker capital inflows and depreciating emerging market currencies, downside risks to the outlook have risen, particularly for emerging markets and developing economies," the IMF said. The analysis comes when global markets have been in flux, with US crude prices closing up nearly 2% on Wednesday after falling as much as 4%.

    China, Malaysia spark fears of an Asian financial crisis

    Nikkei Asian Review

But this does not mean everything is different or better. Now, as then, people are fretting about an Asian country, without being able to see how contagion could be unleashed. In 1997 the focus was on Thailand; this time it's on Malaysia. This nation may be a special case, but other countries are feeling the economic stress manifest in slowing growth and faltering exports.

    Steen's Chronicle: The old and the new economic order
    The current fiat economy whereby manufactured money is pumped into a world blighted by higher costs and lower output is totally unsustainable. Saxo Bank's Steen Jakobsen has devised a new economic model and says the way forward is to adjust to slower growth and get back to the basics of producing goods and services that add value.
