Business and Market Discussions / View from Taiwan

2019-09-19
The US Federal Reserve has cut interest rates by 25bps as anticipated but the FOMC is divided on further action later this year. President Trump criticised the decision tweeting that the Fed had shown “no guts, no sense and no vision.” The Hong Kong Monetary Authority has followed suit and cut its base lending rate by 25bps to 2.25%.

Joshua Wong and other Hong Kong activists have told a US congressional hearing that Beijing was eroding the city’s autonomy and it was unable to understand or govern a free society. He urged the US to reassess Hong Kong’s special trade status. US Lawmakers are considering enacting the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which would allow sanctions on Chinese officials and require annual assessments of whether the city is sufficiently autonomous from Beijing to continue its special trading status. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says Congress will move swiftly to pass the act.


On today’s Money Talk, analysing the Fed’s interest rate decision are Enzio von Pfeil from St. James’s Place and Samuel Faveur of Mandarin Capital. Providing the view from Taiwan is Political Risk Consultant, Ross Feingold.
