China Gives World First View of Post-Lockdown Rebound: Eco Week
(Bloomberg) -- The country first hit by the coronavirus pandemic will this week have a clearer picture of its progress on nursing the economy back to health.China reports second-quarter gross domestic product on Thursday, along with monthly readings for industrial output and retail sales. An easing of lockdown measures plus a modest amount of policy stimulus should be enough to post a positive growth rate, after the historic 6.8% collapse in the first quarter.Economists forecast a 2.5% expansion in the three months to June, with the recovery momentum largely unscathed even after a fresh outbreak in Beijing prompted the return of some controls on movement.That flare-up served as a reminder that even amid a strengthening domestic economy, consumption remains weak and vulnerable to sudden downturns. As the world's manufacturing hub, China is also still suffering from the collapse in global demand amid the pandemic.What Bloomberg's Economists Say:"A clear upturn in China's industrial production suggests the economy expanded in 2Q after cratering in 1Q due to the coronavirus impact. Even so, weakness in private and external demand means the pace of growth is likely to be well below historical levels. Activity data for June are expected to show the recovery has withstood a resurgence in Covid-19 cases in Beijing."\--Chang Shu and David Qu, Bloomberg Economics.

OPEC Readies Next Move in Bid to Avoid Oil-Market Taper Tantrum
(Bloomberg) -- Saudi Oil Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman likes the idea of OPEC acting as the central bank of oil. And he expresses admiration for Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve.The challenge now confronting the oil producers' club is one that's all too familiar to the Fed: how to avoid a "taper tantrum," the market panic that ensued when the institution proposed tightening monetary policy in 2013.Having successfully doubled crude prices over the past few months through unprecedented output cuts, the OPEC alliance led by the Saudis and Russia is poised to begin unwinding these stimulus measures. As fuel demand recovers with the lifting of coronavirus lockdowns, the producers are about to open the taps a little.But as Greenspan's successors discovered seven years ago, taking away the punch bowl carries its own risks.A second wave of the pandemic threatens another slump in oil consumption, while the billion-barrel mountain of inventories that piled up during the first outbreak still looms. If OPEC increases supply just as the market falters then prices could crash once again."When they look at prices over the quarter, when they look at green shoots of demand pick-up, I think they feel good," said Helima Croft, head of commodity strategy at RBC Capital Markets LLC. "I do think they are cognizant though of some of the potential clouds on the horizon."It's a balancing act that Prince Abdulaziz and his counterparts must weigh on July 15, when they hold an online meeting of th
