US: The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives gave final approval on Tuesday to legislation temporarily raising the government’s borrowing limit to $28.9 trillion, pushing off the deadline for debt default only until December.
Democrats, who narrowly control the House, maintained party discipline to pass the hard-fought, $480 billion debt limit increase. The vote was along party lines, with every yes from Democrats and every no from Republicans.
President Joe Biden is expected to sign the measure into law before Oct. 18, when the Treasury Department has estimated it would no longer be able to pay the nation’s debts without congressional action.
House passage warded off concerns that the United States – the world’s largest economy – would go into default for the first time, but the temporary extension set the stage for continued fighting between the parties.
Eurozone: Britain’s economy returned to growth in August after contracting for the first time in six months in July, keeping intact financial market bets that the Bank of England will begin raising interest rates before the end of the year.
Gross domestic product grew by 0.4% in August – a shade under market expectations in a Reuters poll of economists – after it was revised down to show a drop of 0.1% in July when staff absences linked to the Delta variant of COVID-19 peaked.
“The economy picked up in August as bars, restaurants and festivals benefited from the first full month without COVID-19 restrictions in England,” Darren Morgan, director of economic statistics at the Office for National Statistics, said.
Financial markets were little changed after the data.
The BoE looks on course to be the first major central bank to raise interest rates since the start of the pandemic. Financial markets are betting on a rise to 0.25% by December, up from its current all-time low of 0.1%.
