Investment Markets Overview – w/e 31 May 2013

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, better known as the OECD, came out with its half-yearly forecast for the global economy this week, and like its equally “iffy at predictions” counterpart, the IMF, ratcheted down economic growth once again. The Paris-based OECD, which is funded by the tax-payers of its 34 country members, was born in 1961 out of the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation, itself originated in 1948 to help administer the post WW2 “Marshall Plan,” unwittingly financed by the American tax-payer to help rebuild a war-devastated Europe in exchange for political and military influence in the region. Returning to their May 2013 forecasts, the OECD summary concludes, among other matters, that, “Monetary policy needs to remain extraordinary easy in the United States, with more required within the euro-area,” and, “if a sharp rise in US government bond yields were to occur it could have serious consequences for the global economy.” As we show within this weekly commentary, the easy monetary policy is already hurting economic growth and US government bond yields are rocketing.
