    US jobless claims fall to lowest level in five weeks

    Bloomberg
    Aided by improving weather, jobless claims in the US fell by 9,000 to 282,000 this week. The print comes in below expectations, with the median forecast of 52 economists surveyed by Bloomberg standing at 290,000. The robust employment data represent a rare bullish signal from the US economy, where many indicators are beginning to show signs of weakening. According to Bloomberg, "while purchases of new homes unexpectedly climbed in February, housing starts slumped, industrial production cooled, retail sales weakened, and orders for durable goods unexpectedly dropped."

    US blunder to treat China as an enemy

    The Telegraph
    The US is at risk of making the gravest of blunders in its heavy-handed treatment of the UK over its entrance into the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank as it looks to cut off the China-led fledgling institution at the knees. The policy is misguided at every level, says Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, and is forcing allies to make uncomfortable choices between Washington and Beijing. Furthermore, the AIIB is exactly what the world needs as China needs to recycle its trade surpluses and $3.8 trillion reserves by one means or another.
