Investing.com – Uptick In ‘Digital Dollar’ Effort Is Encouraging, But How Realistic Is It?

Investing.com columns.

P2P-3

In tandem with the COVID-19 global pandemic there’s been a recent, significant uptick in discussion about the launch of a ‘digital dollar.’ To be fair, given the far more accute priorities currently pressing national governments and a significant portion of the scientific community, it’s likely the idea won’t become a reality anytime soon.

Still, there have been some new, additional moves toward adapting the way the global reserve currency might be transferred to U.S. taxpayers and other constituents.

In March, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) introduced a bill called the ‘Banking For All Act‘ that has been referred to the Senate’s Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. It would require member banks, meaning national or state banks, or bank or trust companies that are members of one of the Federal Reserve banks, to maintain digital wallets, held by the Fed, for interested individuals and organizations that would be used to directly receive government payments. This would allow consumers to set up “FedAccounts” at their local banks.

FRONTIER FUNDS: SEARCHING FOR GOLD ON THE FRONTIER

After months of poor performance, managers of frontier market funds are looking to countries such as Pakistan to deliver returns to investors. Tanzeel Akhtar reports.

Frontier markets faced a challenging year in 2015, with most indices posting negative returns. The MSCI Frontier Markets index, one of the most widely followed, fell more than 14%.

However, managers of frontier market funds are not losing hope. According to Hedi Ben Mlouka, who runs the Duet EM Frontier Fund with Matthew Vogel, markets such as Vietnam and Pakistan offer good investment opportunities.

      What can investors expect in 2014?
      Russell Investments strategists say global equities should outperform cash and fixed income in 2014, as the group shares its economic forecasts and highlights opportunities and risks in Europe, US and Asia Pacific.

      Starting on a positive, Russell Investments says there are signs of economic healing in Europe and Japan, along with an improved growth outlook for the US.

      This should keep equity markets moving slightly higher, with some fits and starts over significant policy changes in Japan and a eurozone which continues to baulk from fiscal unification.
