With the U.S. election just a week away, recently released government data and new analysis show just how little progress Trump made in changing the trajectory of the Rust Belt region that propelled his improbable rise to the White House. While job and wage growth continued nationally under Trump, extending trends that took root under President Obama, the country's economic weight also continued shifting south and west, according to data from the U.S. Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages that was recently updated to include the first three months of 2020.
Hasso Plattner, chairman and co-founder of SAP, bought shares worth nearly $300 million in the German software company on Monday after a once-in-a-generation price slide triggered when management dumped its profit targets. The 76-year-old billionaire bought shares worth 248.5 million euros ($294 million) at an average price of 101 euros, according to a regulatory filing published on Tuesday. SAP shares slumped by 20% after CEO Christian Klein ditched his "ambition" for profit margins to expand steadily through 2023 and lowered the outlook for this year due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

For months, by Zoom calls and then by jet, Indonesian ministers and officials scoured the world for access to a vaccine for the coronavirus that Southeast Asia's biggest country is struggling to control. Absent from these pledges: the United States. Not only was it not promising any vaccine, but months earlier the United States shocked Indonesian officials by asking to land and refuel its spy planes in the territory, four senior Indonesian officials told Reuters.
Experts said vaccines contained boosters to provide a ‘durable’ immune response against illnesses.
Dublin, Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Simulation in Defence Training - Post-Pandemic Growth Opportunity" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The impact of pandemics on the global economy over the past 50 years provides limited guidance on expectations from the recovery period - mainly due to the globalization of world trade and the most severe restrictions on democratic freedoms in modern memory.While the medical community can look at previous pandemics to help model their countermeasures, economists are examining the 2008-2009 global financial crisis for comparison. At the time of writing this research service, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) had predicted a 3% contraction in the global economy for 2020 (based on the assumption that the pandemic would continue to fade in the economic powerhouses). The IMF anticipates a return to growth of 5.8% in 2021, presuming "economic activity normalizes, helped by [government] policy support". At present, a V-type recovery is predicted for 2021.As defence spending is driven by annual budgets, it is will remain resilient to drastic short-term falls in the GDP. In addition, defence budgets are driven by threats to national sovereignty more than financial affordability within the GDP (however, the two are linked, more often than not). Therefore, the publisher predicts that defence spending will be flat, initially, and rebound later, if the geopolitical instability driven by China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and non-state terror organisations continues (the trend is highly likely to continue). While some nations, such as South Korea, plan to divert defence spending to crisis management, the boundaries between both are blurred and, in this case, completely tied to the threats and actions of its Northern neighbour.However, within the predicted flat budget, nations will re-appraise their defence spending plans (typically, over the 10 years of their delivery). Thus, opportunities to modernize and transform must be leveraged. Some legacy programs will be replaced by technologically advanced systems, especially those proven to have dual use in aiding the Civil Authorities, such as military field hospitals. In addition, the impact of the pandemic in terms of greatly reducing global military operations and live training means that viable deterrents will be sought; a logical component of this will be the increased importance of simulation in training.The report recommends that industry leaders focus on strategic imperatives and build growth mechanisms now as innovation and agility will determine the new industry paradigm.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil clawed back some losses in New York as Tropical Storm Zeta shut in production in the Gulf of Mexico.Futures rose 1.1% after tumbling below $39 a barrel on Monday. A slightly weaker dollar boosted the appeal of commodities priced in the currency. At the same time Zeta became the latest storm to threaten U.S. Gulf output.Prices fell sharply at the start of the week as Libya moved closer to boosting output back to 1 million barrels a day. There’s also a lack of agreement on stimulus in the U.S., clouding the broader market outlook.While Asia remains a bright spot for global oil demand, a renewed surge in virus cases across the U.S. and Europe is raising concerns the fragile recovery in consumption will be derailed. Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said Monday that the worst was over for the market but urged OPEC+ to stay vigilant and stick to its agreed production cuts.“It’s very difficult to predict what is going to happen with oil and gas right now,” Murray Auchincloss, chief financial officer of BP Plc, said in an interview. “We’ve seen continuous reduction in inventory levels since June, and when those move toward the five-year average I suspect there will be an uptick in price.”BP’s Auchincloss said that while aviation demand remains weak, China continues to be a bright spot. Flight levels there are very close to normal, he said.Still, the crude market has weakened in recent days. WTI’s nearest futures are trading at their biggest discount to the next month since early September, a sign of concerns about market supplies. Crude volatility has also jumped in recent days, highlighting trader angst.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Newly-formed group described as ‘biggest threat to Boris Johnson’s authority since he came to power’
It remained so for weeks, and that fact defined what became battle lines between mask wearers and skeptics, and between those convinced restrictions on commerce were needed to save lives versus those who wanted less government intervention. Trump trails in opinion polls ahead of the Nov. 3 election, partly on the basis of his handling of a pandemic that saw him feuding with state governors, questioning government scientists, and hesitant to frame a national response to a crisis that easily spread across state lines. The daily growth in new cases declined in the hard-hit Northeast corridor, while remaining level in the Trump states of the South and Midwest.

(Bloomberg) -- European stocks dropped on Tuesday amid concern about the relentless spread of coronavirus, while U.S. equity futures turned higher before some of the biggest drug companies report results.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index fell toward its lowest close since June. Declines in miners and energy firms overshadowed positive earnings from banking powerhouses HSBC Holdings Plc and Banco Santander SA, which both signaled a brighter outlook for dividends. BP Plc warned of many challenges ahead as the pace of recovery in oil demand remained uncertain.The modest move up in S&P 500 futures comes after the index suffered its biggest daily loss in a month. Crude oil nudged higher, while Treasuries and German bunds were steady.“Yesterday’s capitulation across equity markets may require a bit more of a wash-out before the bulls are happy to come in again,” Neil Wilson, Market.com’s chief market analyst, wrote in a note. “They may even decide to wait for the U.S. election to be over first.”With time running out to finish an aid package before Americans vote, investors are looking for market catalysts later on Tuesday from data and earnings. Durable-goods orders and consumer confidence reports are due, as well as results from Pfizer Inc., Merck & Co. and Eli Lilly and Co.In the meantime, surging coronavirus infections are adding to an already cautious mood. Europe took a step closer to the strict rules imposed during the initial wave of the pandemic, with leaders struggling to regain control of the spread while confronting growing opposition to restrictions. France’s government was told that its virus situation is moving toward that of early March, and the second wave will probably be worse than the first one.In Washington, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin again attempted to reconcile differences on a virus relief package. Differences between the two sides “have narrowed,” but “the more it narrows, the more conditions come up on the other side,” White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told reporters.These are some events to watch this week:The Chinese Communist Party’s Central Committee holds its all-important plenum, where it’s expected to chart the course for the economy’s development for the next 15 years.
