US: U.S. companies borrowed $9.8 billion for capital investments in April, up 19% from a year earlier, benefiting from an economic recovery triggered by mass COVID-19 vaccinations and easing restrictions, the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) said.
Borrowing in April rose 5% from the previous month, as companies across several sectors lined up for loans, leases and lines of credit.
“An increasing number of businesses are opening up, as more Americans are receiving a vaccination, traveling and otherwise trying to return to some semblance of normalcy,” ELFA Chief Executive Officer Ralph Petta said on Tuesday.
“What we see so far in terms of capital equipment investment is indeed encouraging as we head into the summer months.”
Eurozone: The European Central Bank should not reduce the pace of asset purchases after its June 10 meeting as the economic recovery is still in an early phase and inflation remains too low, ECB board member Fabio Panetta told Nikkei.
“The conditions that we see today do not justify reducing the pace of purchases, and a discussion about phasing out the PEPP is still clearly premature,” Panetta said in an interview.
The 1.85 trillion-euro ($2.27 trillion) Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP) should first neutralise the effects of the pandemic on inflation then needs to ensure that price pressures become more sustainable, Panetta added.
