US: Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard said Wednesday that U.S. financial regulators will seek to improve Native American communities’ access to credit.
“We will continue to focus on and seek feedback on how to best encourage impactful CRA (Community Reinvestment Act) activities in Indian Country, including for building climate resilience where needed,” Brainard said in prepared remarks.
Brainard was to speak to Oklahoma tribal leaders at a “Fed Listens” event, a series of gatherings meant to create opportunities for communities to tell Fed policymakers about how they experience the economy.
Brainard said the pandemic had worsened longstanding economic disparities between white and Native American families, with native households and businesses facing big challenges in obtaining credit among other difficulties.
Eurozone: British house price growth slowed slightly last month as a tax break on property purchases neared expiry, but a fall in the number of homes being put up for sale looks set to keep pushing up prices, an industry survey showed on Thursday.
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors said its house price balance fell to +68 in September from a downwardly revised +72 in August, matching economists’ forecasts in a Reuters poll.
Britain’s housing market, like those in many other big economies, has boomed over the past year as the COVID-19 pandemic led to increased demand for properties with more space.
British house prices got an extra boost from a tax break on property purchases which expired at the start of this month.
Mortgage lender Halifax reported last week that prices in September were 7.4% up on the year, including a hefty 1.7% monthly jump, the largest since 2007.
RICS said its members thought prices rises would slow over the next few months. But there was an unusually broad consensus that prices and rents would rise further over the year to come, as fewer homes and rental properties come on to the market.
