Experts facing the struggle to gauge the impact on the world economy

The only thing that could have worsened the current fluctuations in the economic sector was confusion to seek the best data and somehow, this prospect has now been turned into a reality. Economists are constantly struggling to evaluate the ways in which the breakout of the coronavirus has affected the world economy with the impacts of the former still on its way to strengthen its grip. Economists are constantly on the look-out for hints on the points of growth from the configurations put forward by factory shutdowns, store closures, flight-tracking websites about the fatalities of the disease.

According to Torsen Slok, the chief economist of Deutsche Bank, in order to decode the repercussions of coronavirus on the economy, it is very important to point out the transmission channels that will influence the numbers including that of global tourism, imbalance in the supply chains and dipping stock prices which is ideally the most significant. However, other than these components, it is essentially the fear presently operating in the minds of the people that is worrisome. The chief of Asia Pacific at ING Group, Rob Carnell is too of the same opinion. He said that the first thing that he resorts to in the morning is checking the latest report furnished by the World Health Organization and the supplement of Worldometer that estimates the coronavirus count. When viewed carefully, the new cases that are being traced outside of China are more important because these are either resulting from the encounters with China tourists or are being transmitted by the residents of Wuhan in form of community transmission.


Ben Emons, the managing director of Macro Strategy has predicted that the first symptoms of the virus will surface themselves in the local economies between February 20 and 25 after the important data from Australia’s Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), Thailand, Taiwan export orders and Hong Kong import are released. One of the biggest markers pointing towards the disruption of production in the supply chain is an alteration in product inventories of Chinese manufacturers, the durable and retail businesses and imports through major cars. Besides this major glitch, a backlog in shipping and freight rates when coupled with the variations in the export and import of textile and oil products can be capable of ensuing frightening nightmares.


On the other hand, as far as the manufacturing sector is concerned, supply deliveries that are within the realms of electronics PMI and manufacturing are the indispensable ones. This is because all the delays assigned under their names will emphasize their effects on the world economy. In the case of the hospitality and tourism sectors, the air passenger load factors, hotel occupancy statistics, visitor arrival data, consumption of food and beverage will count as the ultimate signs outlining the hovering changes.


Furthermore, experts are inclined towards believing that the escalating deficiency of air travel in to and out from China is largely upsetting the shipping trade because most of the paper documents are transferred from one to another by the air even before the ships arrive at the port. The shipping problem, nevertheless, is being rolled out by staff on the boats with the virus at the ones who are isolated.
