It lies not in a simple economic slowdown, but it has its root in the speculative bubble on the real estate market, which was holding an artificial consumption growth. After the bursting of the bubble, one can observe a large number of entities financial problems that will require time to recover. Western Union follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. Time that is not politically acceptable. If a little encouraging picture of private consumption (representing 70% of the GDP of USA.UU.), add you that in the coming months, will probably continue bad news linked to the crisis (do larger losses financial institutions?, do increase in delinquencies in portfolios? do low qualification of bond insurers? who knows as soon, the Governor of NY gave insurers have five days to make funds if they don’t want to face a potential rupture)then it is not very likely to think that the recovery of the American economy from the second half occur safely. Across the Atlantic, the tightening of credit conditions was also noted in the survey by the ECB, where European banking executives await a further contraction of credit during the quarter. But in favour of the economies of the eurozone, the ECB still does not It came into action and has the capacity to act against an economic weakening. And in relation to this, met yesterday the report of February of the ECB which recognized the existence of risks on economic growth and one greater impact than expected on the evolution of the financial markets on the conditions of funding and economic sentiment.
I understand that this way, the ECB is preparing a markets for a possible cut in rates. Therefore, meeting the US economy with more possibilities to deepen its slowdown and even as speaking without hesitation of recession, while I see the economies of the euro zone able to curb the weakening of their economies, whereupon, I am not convinced all the expectations on a possible strengthening of the dollar against the euro. Moreover, assuming even that the recovery of the American economy is a fact, it does not guarantee the prospects for the dollar since not only look short term prospects of the EE.UU. versus Europe, but which should be considered also the damage caused by this crisis on confidence in the U.S. currency. This crisis has served for reflection several countries about life that fits to the dollar as the currency of reference worldwide. It is not so clear that it can maintain its supremacy and, faced with this situation, it would not be wrong diversify. Thats at least what is being discussed in the economies of the Gulf area and in those countries with mostly so-called international reserves on the American ticket, which would imply a significant movement in the demand for the dollar.
