    Morning Markets: A big week of multiple triggers and earnings reports
    Welcome to a busy week and a calendar of events that includes Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, US nonfarm payrolls, Janet Yellen's final Fed meeting and a raft of corporate earnings reports. Besides this, we've got an increasingly fractious relationship between the UK and the EU and rising political turmoil within UK prime minister Theresa May's conservative party.

    Morning Markets: Dollar perks up as Trump gambles
    The dollar is showing signs of life once again as the markets interpret a delay in the vote on Donald Trump's healthcare bill as a signal he may get his way after all. It's hardly a ringing endorsement, however, and an underlying nervousness still pervades markets.

    Panama Papers may also hamper effective governance

    Bloomberg
    The revelations of tax evasion and avoidance in the Panama Papers will invigorate government efforts to rein in those practices, but they will also feed public resentment that will make it even more difficult for governments to find the centrist unity needed for reforms, said Bloomberg View columnist Mohamed El-Erian. "By stoking residual anger and fueling anti-establishment movements, the Panama Papers will make it even harder for the established parties to come together and implement policies aimed at overcoming years of sluggish economic growth, worsening inequality and artificial financial stability," El-Erian said. It is "good news" for societies that rely on the rule of law that the disclosures will produce greater efforts to reduce "tax minimisation", legal or illegal, he said. "But in the short term this will be accompanied by even stronger resistance to the kind of political unity that is needed in several countries to deliver high growth and genuine financial stability."

    The Sydney Morning Herald
    The US Justice Department has filed a civil lawsuit against Volkswagen for allegedly violating the Clean Air Act by installing illegal devices to impair emission control systems in nearly 600,000 vehicles. The allegations against Volkswagen, along with its Audi and Porsche units, carry penalties that could cost the automaker billions of dollars, a senior Justice Department official said. Julia Edwards and Joel Schectman write VW could face fines in theory exceeding $90 billion – or as much as $37,500 per vehicle per violation of the law, based on the complaint. In September, government regulators initially said VW could face fines in excess of $18 billion.
