Global Macro In 1 Simple Chart

The US and UK are the 'best' performing world economies based on PMIs. Despite slumping real incomes, surging gas prices, a dismal Q1, fading Q2 growth expectations, and the US being the worst relative performing macro-surprise index in the world this year, it is the cleanest clean shirt with the great expansion based on soft-survey data. France joins Korea at the bottom of the global pile of macro-economic performers with Russia, Brazil, Australia, and Greece also in contraction.

The change in the UK over the past 18 months is very obvious.

It does feel like the big recession has passed.

The economy is hardly booming though. It's somewhere between tepid and mild growth.

But people are out looking for ways to make money again rather than ways to cut costs.

Britains strength also makes Brits a lot more bullish on leaving the EU.

We want the same relationship Switzerland has.

That is the exact opposite of what I experienced in South Korea when I was stationed there.

I just don't get why the British pound is strong, and why their economy is (alledgedly) improving.  What do they make in England these days that the rest of the world needs?  Manufacturing?  Agriculture?  It's a ponzi same as the USA.

The source of the stats is J.P. Morgan, enough said.

They also provide protection for the world's oligarchs.
