All Eyes On More Fiscal Measures?

The will-they-won't-they over a US fiscal stimulus bill has thrown markets into a state of uncertainty, with many analysts still nevertheless hopeful that we might see a deal before the November 3rd election. Vishnu Varathan, Head of Economics & Strategy at Mizuho Bank, is of the opinion that markets will remain hopeful, as both sides appear to now see the urgency of the bill. We also ask Vishnu for his thoughts on the wiggle room for the Bank of Thailand, and whether the third wave of Covid-19 will suppress Malaysia's consumer demand.
