Up, Down and Sideways: a Voter’s Guide to U.S. Economic Data | Investing News

(Reuters) – In the countdown to the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election, the state of the economy is a key concern for many voters.

Americans face a barrage of data, from this Friday’s monthly jobs report to what in all likelihood will be a blockbuster economic activity scorecard a mere five days before Election Day.

No one is debating that the United States has been struck by a recession of historic magnitude because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Rather, President Donald Trump says he is best placed to lever signs of a nascent recovery into a return to economic health. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, meanwhile, argues a lack of leadership by Trump – on containing the virus in particular – has made the slump worse than it needed to be.

With two months to go before the election, and less time than that for those planning to mail in their

In July, personal consumer spending rose by 1.9%, government data shows. At that point, unemployed Americans were still receiving an extra $600 a week in federal unemployment benefits on top of their state benefits.

Whether or not you believe the now-expired $600 weekly unemployment benefit was overly generous or not, like stimulus checks, they allowed more Americans to spend money. But even without the enhanced unemployment benefit, Americans are still reaching for their wallets in stores, restaurants and auto dealerships, data shows.

In July, personal spending rose by 1.9%, the government said Friday. That spending happened while more than 30 million jobless Americans were receiving an additional $600 in weekly federal unemployment benefits on top of what they were receiving from their state.

That benefit, a provision in the CARES Act, ended at the end of July, and as a result, the average amount of weekly unemployment

The Majors

It was a bearish day for the European majors on Thursday, which reversed Wednesday’s gains. The DAX30 fell by 0.71%, with EuroStoxx600 and CAC30 both declining by 0.64%.

FED Chair Powell’s highly anticipated speech from Jackson Hole failed to support the European majors. The FED’s new plans to support employment and inflation weighed on the banking sector, however.

While there were no stats from the Eurozone to consider, economic data from the U.S was a reminder of what lies ahead.

The general consensus is that the Eurozone economy is showing signs of stalling, with the U.S labor market recovery also hitting a speed bump.

Why non-personal data governance framework needs a rethink

The non-personal data (NPD) governance framework sets out norms for regulation of data by referring to its socio-economic value and to ‘unlock innovation’ for the Indian entrepreneurial ecosystem. The purpose states that start-ups require access to NPD and the apparent lack thereof stunts innovation. However, this premise is built on shaky foundations. The assertion that the start-up community needs a mandatory data-sharing regime to spur innovation has little evidentiary basis. India has the third-largest start-up ecosystem in the world, expected to grow 12-15% in the coming years. Moreover, in an attempt to democratise certain aspects of the data collected and open it up to the market for innovation, it is important to negotiate what aspects of data get democratised and what get

HOUSTON (Reuters) – U.S. Gulf of Mexico crude oil output remained down 70%, or 1.29 million barrels per day, according to data released on Sunday by the Department of Interior, as companies continued to return crews to offshore facilities that were evacuated ahead of Hurricane Laura.

U.S. Labor Department Changes Jobless Claims Data Methodology After Economic Shock | Investing News

angel may

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Labor Department said on Thursday it was changing the methodology used to address seasonal fluctuations in its weekly unemployment claims data, which economists complained was less reliable because of the economic upheaval caused by COVID-19.

The department said in a statement that starting next Thursday, it would use additive factors to seasonally adjust the initial claims and continued claims data instead of multiplicative factors.

“A multiplicative seasonal effect is assumed to be

proportional to the level of the series. A sudden large increase in the level of the series will be accompanied by a proportionally large seasonal effect,” the department said.

“In contrast, an additive seasonal effect is assumed to be unaffected by the level of the series.”

The coronavirus crisis has caused an unprecedented decline in economic activity, with nearly 7 million people filing new claims for unemployment benefits at one point. The Labor
