Central bank cryptocurrencies

  • 0

From the Bank for International Settlements:New cryptocurrencies are emerging almost daily, and many interested parties are wondering whether central banks should issue their own versions. But what might central bank cryptocurrencies (CBCCs) look like and would they be useful? This feature provides a taxonomy of money that identifies two types of CBCC - retail and wholesale - and differentiates them from other forms of central bank money such as cash and reserves. It discusses the different characteristics of CBCCs and compares them with existing payment options. More here

Muted inflation a trillion-dollar puzzle, says BIS

The conundrum of stubbornly low inflation despite a pick-up in global growth and continued monetary stimulus is a "trillion dollar" question, the umbrella body for the world's leading central banks said on Sunday. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) said in its latest quarterly report that cheap borrowing rates and the rare simultaneous expansion of advanced and developing economies are driving financial markets higher, with signs of "exuberance" starting to re-emerge. The BIS said this raises a question over the potential for another crisis if there is a significant rise in interest rates.

Too soon to determine risks of central bank-issued cryptocurrencies: BIS

It is too soon to determine whether central banks should issue their own cryptocurrencies, the Bank for International Settlements said on Sunday, as the risks could not yet be fully assessed and the technology underpinning them is still unproven. Central banks already use electronic money - only a very small proportion of their assets are now backed by gold - but this is exchanged in a centralized fashion, across accounts at the central bank. What would be distinctive about a central bank-issued cryptocurrency - rather than just electronic money - would be that this could be exchanged "directly between the payer and the payee without the need for central intermediary", by means of blockchain technology, BIS said in its latest Quarterly Review.

Global debt may be understated by $13 trillion - BIS

Global debt may be under-reported by around $13 trillion because traditional accounting practices exclude foreign exchange derivatives used to hedge international trade and foreign currency bonds, the BIS said on Sunday. Bank for International Settlements researchers said it was hard to assess the risk this "missing" debt poses, but that the main worry was a liquidity crunch like the one that seized FX swap and forwards markets during the financial crisis. The fact these FX derivatives do not appear on financial and non-financial institutions' balance sheets under current accounting rules means little is known about where the debt lies.

FOMC Preview

The consensus is that the Fed will not change the Fed Funds Rate at the meeting this coming week.  However the Fed is expected to start the process of balance sheet normalization.Assuming the expected happens - no rate hike and the start of balance sheet normalization - the focus will be on the wording of the statement, the projections, and Fed Chair Janet Yellen's press conference to try to determine if there will be a 3rd rate hike in 2017 at the December meeting.Here are the June FOMC projections.The projection for GDP in 2017 will likely be either unchanged or revised down slightly.  GDP in Q1 was at 1.2% annualized, and Q2 at 3.0%.  Currently projections put Q3 GDP at around 1.3% to 2.2% (the hurricanes probably pushed down Q3 GDP, and some bounce back is likely in Q4).My guess is, as far as the impact of any fiscal stimulus, the Fed will continue to wait and see what the actual proposals will be.GDP projections of Federal Reserve Governors and Reserve Bank presidentsChange inReal GDP1201720182019June 2017 2.1 to 2.21.8 to 2.21.8 to 2.0Mar 20172.0 to 2.21.8 to 2.31.8 to 2.01 Projections of change in real GDP and inflation are from the fourth quarter of the previous year to the fourth quarter of the year indicated. The unemployment rate was at 4.4% in August. So the unemployment rate for Q4 2017 will probably be unchanged.Unemployment projections of Federal Reserve Governors and Reserve Bank presidentsUnemploymentRate2201720182019June 2017 4.2 to 4.34.0 to 4.34.1 to 4.4Mar 2017 4.5 to 4.64.3 to 4.64.3 to 4.72 Projections for the unemployment rate are for the average civilian unemployment rate in the fourth quarter of the year indicated.
