ECB’s latest measures may not boost inflation; quantitative easing could help: Reuters poll

By Sumanta Dey

(Reuters) – It is still unclear whether the European Central Bank’s stimulus measures will have a material impact on inflation, according to economists in a Reuters poll, who said sovereign debt purchases could help boost the euro zone economy.

The currency bloc is stuck in a quagmire of weak growth and falling inflation with Germany, its strongest member, close to a recession, and prices falling in Italy, the third-largest economy in the 18-nation union.

Oct 3 (Reuters) – Euro zone business grew at its slowest
rate this year in September on tumbling demand, surveys showed

economic recovery.

Germany’s private sector expanded at a robust pace last
month, pointing to an economic rebound between July-September
after Europe’s biggest economy unexpectedly shrank the quarter
before.

Weak demand hits factory activity across Asia, Europe

BANGALORE/LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – Dwindling demand hurt factory activity across much of Asia and Europe in September, and mixed manufacturing indicators in the Americas on Wednesday raised the chances of slower global economic growth in the months ahead.

China’s manufacturing sector barely expanded, while Britain’s slumped, and the drop in new orders did not even spare Germany, the strongest member of the euro zone currency bloc, or France, its No. 2 economy.

Waning demand hits factory activity across Asia and Europe

BANGALORE/SYDNEY, Oct 1 (Reuters) – Dwindling demand cut
factory activity across much of Asia and Europe in September,
sending it to multi-month lows and raising the chances that
global growth will slow in the months ahead.

Despite gentler price rises, China’s figures were mired
barely above contraction, Britain slumped, and the drop in new
orders did not even spare Germany, the strongest member of the
euro zone currency bloc, or France, its No. 2 economy.
