BERLIN (Reuters) - China is likely to strengthen state control over the economy in the coming years despite tentative signs of an opening, Germany's VDMA mechanical engineering association said on Tuesday. In a paper on the Chinese market presented at its annual conference in Berlin, the VDMA also urged the German government to maintain political pressure on Beijing, saying this was the only way to secure the future of German companies in China. "The Chinese market is primarily a politically-driven market that is shaped, controlled and steered through the intervention of the state," the paper said. "All signs suggest that this tendency will strengthen in the coming years." Under pressure from the United States and Europe to open up its market to foreign investment, China has taken a number of steps in recent months, including allowing Germany's BASF <BASFn.DE> and U.S. giant ExxonMobil <XOM.N> to invest in major chemical sites.

By Karin Strohecker, Amanda Cooper and Ritvik Carvalho LONDON (Reuters) - A rise in oil prices to four-year highs is heaping pressure on big emerging-market crude consumers such as Turkey, India, Indonesia and South Africa that are already grappling with current account deficits, weak currencies and rising inflation. Emerging markets worldwide have been buffeted in recent months by the strong dollar, climbing U.S. interest rates and slowing growth momentum with Turkey and Argentina descending into full-blown currency crises. Meanwhile Brent crude prices have risen above $80 per barrel, thanks largely to coordinated production cuts by some of the world’s biggest oil exporters, as well as impending U.S. sanctions on crude exporter Iran that could wipe yet more supply off the market. Some analysts now think benchmark prices could return to $100 per barrel for the first time since 2014. But for a number of importers such as India, Turkey or Indonesia - who all have seen their … [Read more...] about Rising oil turns up heat on vulnerable emerging economies

By Dana Milbank | PUBLISHED: October 15, 2018 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: October 15, 2018 at 12:51 pm After the Dow Jones industrials plunged 832 points on Wednesday, Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s chief economic adviser, walked up the White House driveway and proclaimed that there was no cause for concern. Not about the stock market, or turmoil in China’s economy, or American casualties of Trump’s trade fights, or the president’s attempt to bully the Federal Reserve into an easy-money stance. “Our economy and the people and the workers and entrepreneurs, they’re killing it. We’re the hottest in the world,” Kudlow proclaimed in front of the CNBC camera. “We’re crushing it right now, and I think that’s going to continue regardless of China.” Kudlow, standing outside the West Wing, offered versions of this happy talk — “I don’t think this is anything resembling a sugar high … America is on a … [Read more...] about Milbank: The economy is crushing it – just like in 2008!
