    Brazil’s unemployment rose in May to 6.7% from 4.3% in December and inflation-adjusted average wages have fallen 7.9% since November, with both trends accelerating in the past month. The deterioration in the labor market since late 2014 ends a decade of cumulative gains in employment and will lead to an increase in bad loans at Brazilian retail lenders...

    Two key developments this past weekend have heightened the uncertainty surrounding the resolution of the Greek crisis and are further damaging financial stability and economic conditions in Greece. First, the Prime Minister called for a referendum on the bailout terms offered by Greece's official creditors, whereupon the Eurogroup refused to extend Greece's support programme beyond 30 June. Secondly, the European Central Bank decided not to increase emergency liquidity assistance to the Bank of Greece. As a result, the Greek government has imposed capital controls to contain bank deposit outflows, and all Greek banks will remain closed this week...

    The US Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act validates the availability of premium subsidies for individuals who purchased insurance policies on the federal health care exchange, removes uncertainty about policies sold in 2015, and serves to stabilize the individual health insurance market for future years. However, the act will still pose challenges to insurers and regulators as a result of recent experience and of provisions of the act not yet implemented...

    US Restrictions on Six Large Bank Mortgage Servicers Are Credit Negative The US placed restrictions on six large banks because of their continued deficiencies in servicing delinquent mortgage loans. The restrictions demonstrate, after four years of trying, the banks’ difficulty in improving their controls and processes to current regulatory standards, thereby exposing the banks to additional restrictions and fines along with further damage to their reputations and franchise values…
Reform and Rebalancing

  • China: Reform and Rebalancing

    The Chinese economy is embarking on a path of rebalancing, defined by a reorientation away from the export and investment-led development model towards a model where consumption gradually becomes a more important engine of growth. This process will be characterized by economic restructuring, policy reform, market liberalization, and credit deceleration, posing both opportunities and challenges for China's credit universe. This page provides a centralized source for Moody's research related to key credit issues in China as the country's rebalancing story unfolds.
  • Euro Area – The Road to Sustainable Growth

    Irrespective of the euro area's emergence from the acute phase of the region's debt crisis in the second half of 2012, economic growth - despite its recent acceleration - has been subdued, reflecting continued large stocks of public debt, restrictive financing conditions and pre-existing long-term structural constraints (including poor demographic prospects). Given these obstacles, as well as the still incomplete nature of the euro area's economic union, the growth model of the European Union and its core, the euro area, continues to face challenges. This page provides a centralized source for Moody's research related to key credit issues concerning these matters.
  • Infrastructure Renewal and Investment

    Global infrastructure financing needs are vast, estimated to be trillions of dollars annually for the foreseeable future. As governments around the world look to secure resources necessary to renew and expand their energy, transportation and other infrastructure assets, they will increasingly look to capital markets and private sector finance to ensure sufficient investment in these vital projects. This page provides a centralized source for Moody’s research related to key credit issues concerning these matters.
  • Environmental Risks and Developments

    Concern over environmental change is leading to significant government policy initiatives globally and rising corporate innovation and investment. This heightened attention will lead to disruptive industry change, shifting investor capital allocation strategies and rising input costs related to increased pricing on carbon emissions and water usage. At the same time, severe environmental events, whether natural (earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts and floods) or man-made (oil spills and nuclear accidents), are of growing concern to many market participants who are concerned natural events are increasing in frequency and severity. This page highlights Moody's research on the credit implications of these developing environmental trends.
