Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin and Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic chair of the US House of Representatives, missed Tuesday’s deadline for drafting a new bailout package for victims of the US corona crisis. But they did come closer to an agreement and are expected to continue speaking today.
Roll White House
According to Teeuwe Mevissen, economist at Rabobank, there are three parties in the negotiations that must jointly reach a deal about new corona support. “In addition to the Democrats and Republicans, the White House also has an important role. It’s up to Munchin to get everyone to agree on the scope and terms of the bailout package, with the White House already pushing forward a bit to the Democrats. ”
The fast approaching US presidential elections in early November also continue to dominate sentiment, Mevissen says. He points out that Trump in the polls in the important swingstate Florida has cut its backlog. “It remains to be seen whether the scenario that Biden becomes president and gets a majority in Congress will come true. It is almost certain that one of the parties wants a fix given the large number of votes by post. ”
Furthermore, the ongoing Brexit negotiations still require attention. According to Mevissen, Europe has probably been whispered by Chancellor Merkel to reach out to the British. “In our baseline scenario, we still assume that a deal will be reached before the end-December deadline.”
