Key Events This Week: Payrolls, PMIs, Earnings And More Stimmies As we enter August and what is set to be a period of higher than normal holiday taking (as traders scramble to hit the beach ahead of the next round of lockdowns), well have to wait until Friday for the main event, which is the July payrolls report but before that well see the release of the July PMIs from around the world (mostly today and Wednesday), a further 150 earnings reports from S&P 500 companies, and 4 monetary policy decisions from G20 central banks, including the Bank of England (Thursday). And, as DB”s Jim Reid reminds us, dont forget the US infrastructure bill which seems to be making progress in the background after senators agreed text to a bipartisan bill that they hope to vote on this week. Going through the main highlights of the week ahead in more details, the next few days will be dominated by the build up to Fridays US employment report. Fed Chair Powell said in his press conference after last weeks Fed meeting that the labor market has a ways to go, and that the unemployment rate of 5.9% understates the shortfall in employment, particularly as participation in the labor market has not moved up from the low rates that have prevailed for most of the past year. This is actually the last jobs report ahead of Powells speech at Jackson Hole later in August, so could be an important one in terms of providing clues on a potential timeline for the Feds tapering of asset purchases.

Is Auckland really the most liveable city?
Sunday, 1 August 2021, 19:00:00
How do we know if Auckland is really becoming a better place to live? Mark Thomas says global indexes don”t tell half the story and we need a local measurement citizens can rely on The prospects for Aucklands liveability should be looking up following Auckland Councils recent $32 billion, 10-year plan sign-off. The plan aims to respond to Aucklands ongoing housing, transport and other challenges as well as new and growing ones such as Covid and the impacts from climate change. But whats the plan to actually measure any future improvements in this liveability? Or do we not need this now that Auckland is apparently already the most liveable city on Earth? The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) last month surprised everyone by awarding global poll position to Auckland – substantially on the back of its response to Covid-19. Our Covid response has made pandemic life in Auckland relatively easier, but it hasnt had a positive influence across the things that matter most to the people who live here.
