The Year of the Tiger – what is in store for the world in 2022 part II?

On Thursday, 5 March 2020, 651 days ago, the National Institute for Communicable Diseases confirmed that a suspected case of COVID-19 had tested positive.
It feels like this news report took place years ago and that COVID-19 has been with the world for much, much longer.
Now, 21 months into the pandemic, 251m confirmed cases of COVID-19, 5m deaths, and 7.1bn vaccine doses later on a global scale, many parts of the world remain in limbo and struggling to recover.
It’s time to consider the new reality that is emerging in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and ask what it means for politics, economics, business.

SA economy under pressure

Loadshedding, water outages and cable theft are weighing on South Africa's economic activity potential.

Positioning for rising inflation and interest rates

Central bank decisions are the theme of the week, with the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank and the US Federal Reserve all meeting in the coming days.
The Fed is set to be the most highly-anticipated, with analysts expecting central bankers stateside to increase the tapering of its bond-buying programme to $30bn per month from the current $15bn, in the face of sustained and growing consumer inflation.
Rising interest rates and inflation are in the news. For many, this can impact one’s financial quality of life as affording usual comforts becomes increasingly more expensive.
But what does this mean for your investment strategy and portfolio construction into the New Year?

The Year of the Tiger – what is in store for the world in 2022?

It’s time to consider the new reality that is emerging in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and ask what it means for politics, economics, business.
While the IMF is cautioning that the Omicron variant could shave a few percent off global growth the figure is still double that of SA’s expected GDP next year.
Crony capitalism, blackouts and scant investment left South Africa in a second recession in two years before the pandemic hit. The virus then pushed unemployment above 30%. Anger at decades of graft and the failing economy helped fuel riots in July. With a large mining industry, South Africans’ hopes for a brighter economy in 2022 rest in part on high prices for what we dig up. But how long will it take to fix the deeper problems?

To discuss this Michael Avery is joined by Gina Schoeman, Economist & Head of Research at Citi; Dr Lumkile Mondi of the School of Economics and Finance at Wits and Richard Calland, associate professor in public law at the University of Cape Town and a founding partner of the Paternoster Group

The Week In Perspective

What’s happening in the markets now?
England is going under tougher COVID-19 curbs, BoJO is getting roasted for last year’s Christmas party while Christmas parties are being cancelled across Europe and the United States, and Jefferies became the first big Wall Street bank to send employees home.
But with focus returning to central banks and inflation, the rally has lost some of its edge. European and U.S. futures are flatlining, and a global equity index paused near two-week highs.
The rand, meanwhile, ended a three-day winning streak, reaching an intraday low of R15.99/$, dropping almost 2% as manufacturing output slumped far more sharply than expected in October. Data showed industrial production fell 8.9% year on year, versus economists’ predictions for a 1.4% decline, probably because of a strike in the steel and engineering sector.

Carbon border taxes: Revolution or protectionism?

Fighting climate change is vital to equitable global development and poverty reduction—and international trade can have an important role to play in this. Trade can help countries adapt to higher average temperatures and more extreme weather events by offering consumers lower-emissions goods and services and facilitating the use of climate-friendly technology.
But climate change may also negatively affect trade as extreme weather events raise the cost of trade, by destroying or degrading transport infrastructure and reducing agricultural production.
And importantly for us here in South Africa with our still globally high carbon intensive inputs in key exports, green border taxes could serve as form of green protectionism as input costs in the developed world rise in the wake of those countries’ energy transitions.

To discuss this Michael Avery is joined by Andrew Gilder Director of Climate Legal & Duane Newman, Partner at EY Cova
