A pessimistic population means 'Yellow Vest' protests could become more mainstream, new survey warns

France has seen repeated street and violent protests over the last two months – a scenario that could become more mainstream worldwide, the Edelman Trust Barometer Report warned Sunday.

There is a growing feeling of distrust in governments and the media among the general population, according to the Edelman report.

It states that there has been a 3 percent increase between 2018 and 2019 in the level of distrust towards the government and the media. Overall, the general feeling of distrust has hit a record high this year from 2017.

There is also a clear difference between mass population and the informed public, with the return to the largest-ever trust gap between these two, since 2017. This trust gap is particularly evident in developed countries, including the U.K., Canada, France and the United States. But it is also growing in developing countries such as India and China.

“The last decade has seen a loss of faith in traditional authority figures and institutions,” said Richard Edelman, president and CEO of Edelman.

Stephen Kehoe, global chair, Reputation, said in a press release: “Divergent levels of confidence between the mass population and informed public about the future signal a continued underlying rot in the structure of society.”

“While not everyone is taking to the streets, the data shows why protests like the Gilet Jaunes in France, the women’s marches in India and walkouts by employees at some major tech companies could become more mainstream,” he added.

The “Gilet Jaunes” or “Yellow Vest” protests began in mid-November over higher fuel taxes, which were subsequently scrapped, and have since morphed into a broader demonstration against the government.

IMF says the global economic expansion is losing momentum as it cuts growth forecasts

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) revised down its estimates for global growth on Monday, warning that the expansion seen in recent years is losing momentum.

IMF says the global economic expansion is losing momentum as it cuts growth forecasts

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) revised down its estimates for global growth on Monday, warning that the expansion seen in recent years is losing momentum.

The Fund now projects a 3.5 percent growth rate worldwide for 2019 and 3.6 percent for 2020. These are 0.2 and 0.1 percentage points below its last forecasts in October — making it the second downturn revision in three months.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the IMF’s Managing Director Christine Lagarde said: “After two years of solid expansion, the world economy is growing more slowly than expected and risks are rising. But even as the economy continues to move ahead … it is facing significantly higher risks.”

In October, the IMF cut its global growth forecasts on the back of increased trade tariffs between China and the United States. It said the latest revision is due in part to carry over from last year, mentioning weakness for German auto manufacturers due to new fuel emission standards, and soft domestic demand in Italy after recent sovereign and financial risks. But the IMF also highlighted weakening sentiment in the global financial markets and a contraction in Turkey that’s now projected to be deeper than anticipated.

According to the Fund, advanced economies have been on a declining path in terms of growth and this is taking place more rapidly than previously thought. These countries are forecast to grow 2 percent this year and 1.7 percent in 2020.

At the same time, there’s also been a growth slowdown in emerging economies. The IMF projects a 4.5 percent growth rate in 2019, from 4.6 percent in 2018, before improving to 4.9 percent in 2020.

Former Finnish prime minister says he would put Brexit to a second vote

The U.K.’s withdrawal from the EU should be put to a second public vote to overcome the current impasse, the former prime minister of Finland told CNBC Monday.

Former Finnish prime minister says he would put Brexit to a second vote

The U.K.’s withdrawal from the EU should be put to a second public vote to overcome the current impasse, the former prime minister of Finland told CNBC Monday.

The Brexit deadlock continues after Prime Minister Theresa May presented some changes to her plan to leave the European Union on Monday afternoon. This comes after U.K. lawmakers overwhelmingly defeated her proposals last week.

“I still think there are only three options on the table: Number one is the deal as it stands, number two is the hard Brexit … and number three, basically, is a new referendum,” Alexander Stubb, who is currently the vice president of the European Investment Bank, said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“(If I was) the prime minister of the United Kingdom, I would go back to the people, because the decision of having a new deal is as big as leaving the European Union,” he added.

Some U.K. lawmakers have been pushing for another referendum on Brexit, arguing that people now have a better idea of what leaving the European Union really means.

Speaking in front of the U.K. Parliament, May said that it’s the government’s duty to implement the decision of the first vote.

“I fear a second referendum would set a difficult precedent that could have significant implications for how we handle referendums in this country,” May said.

Money managers were also following U.S. politics as the government shutdown continues into its 28th day.

In terms of economic data, there will be industrial production figures out at 9:15 a.m. ET and consumer sentiment numbers due at 10:00 a.m. ET.

No Treasury auctions were scheduled for Friday.

Extending the Brexit deadline could cause major issues with EU elections coming

Extending the Brexit deadline could cause major issues with EU elections coming

Extending the official Brexit deadline for the U.K. could bring a wave of extra logistical and political problems for the European Union.

The ongoing deadlock has sparked a debate on the potential extension of Article 50 — the legal means by which the U.K. leaves the EU. However, there is strong opposition from some European lawmakers over giving more time to the U.K. to sort out its domestic politics.

The U.K. is set to leave the EU on March 29 — but this could change if the U.K. asks for an extension and the other 27 member nations accept the request. Extending the departure beyond the agreed date would likely clash with European parliamentary elections that are set to take place between May 23 and 26. The chamber is made of lawmakers from all 28 European member countries, including the U.K., and is responsible for approving European policies, such as the Union’s total budget.

“What we will not let happen, deal or no deal, is that the mess in British politics is again imported into European politics. While we understand the U.K. could need more time, for us it is unthinkable that Article 50 is prolonged beyond the European Elections,” Guy Verhofstadt, a member of the European Parliament and its representative in Brexit negotiations, said on Twitter on Wednesday.

His comments come at a time when U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposed Brexit deal suffered a historic defeat in the House of Commons on Tuesday. Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron weighed in on the possibility that the U.K. would have to push back its departure date.

Macron said Wednesday that the U.K. “will take more time (to overcome the Brexit impasse), maybe they will step over the European elections in order to find something else.”

Speaking to CNBC via email Friday, Seb Dance, member of the European Parliament for the U.K. Labour party, said the prospect of having Brexit and the European elections clashing “is a logistical headache.”

“The impact of delaying Brexit on the EU elections is certainly troublesome logistically speaking,” he said, “but politically speaking it shouldn’t make a difference as it is entirely possible that elections take place in the other member states without needing to take place in Britain.”

However, some argue that even politically, it would be troublesome, as European officials and institutions want to focus on campaigning and speaking to voters ahead of the vote. The wave of populist sentiment in Europe after the fallout of the sovereign debt crisis has raised concerns, among the traditional parties, about what the next European Parliament will look like.

According to a Brussels-based European official, who did not want to be named due to the sensitivity surrounding the Brexit talks, an extension would likely mean that the U.K. would have to participate in the vote. This is because it would still technically be a member of the European Union.

Fridges, planes and soldiers: How the UK is preparing for a no-deal Brexit

Nobody seems to really want it, but everyone argues the U.K. needs to be ready for it: A no-deal Brexit — the possibility that the U.K.’s departure from the European Union on March 29 is abrupt. Stephen Barclay, the U.K.’s Brexit secretary, said earlier this month: “A responsible government needs to ensure that we are ready for that default option.” A no-deal Brexit would mean that the UK would leave the EU without a transition period and without any big agreement over their future relationship.

But pay no huge sums of money and wouldn’t be tied to the EU for an indefinite amount of time.

During an interview to Sky News, he added that the government is “increasing communications” with pharmaceutical companies and European citizens living in the U.K.

But what else is the U.K. government doing? And is it enough?

“We have contracts in place for 5,000 (fridges) – and these are big, industrial refrigeration units,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the BBC this month. He added that the government spent “just over £10 million” with these items.

Greece’s Tsipras narrowly wins a confidence vote, but risks early election

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has narrowly won a confidence vote on Wednesday night, averting a snap elections.

Greece's Tsipras narrowly wins a confidence vote, but risks early election

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has narrowly won a confidence vote on Wednesday night, averting a snap elections. However, the stability of his government could be at risk.

Tsipras’ government won the vote with 151 lawmakers, out of 300, supporting him. The Greek government was thrown into this uncertainty after its coalition partner resigned last week over a naming deal with Macedonia.

But the political situation is still fragile for Tsipras, whose party has only 145 seats in the Greek parliament — making him leader of a minority government.

“It’s highly likely” that there will be an early election in Greece, Mujtaba Rahman, managing director at Eurasia Group told CNBC on Thursday.

Tsipras’ mandate ends in September, but the fact that he now heads a minority government has raised questions about whether he will be able to survive the leadership until then.

“This will make completing the current parliamentary term in office a near-impossible job,” Wolfango Piccoli, co-president of Teneo Intelligence said in a note.

“However, Tsipras will have the advantage of determining the timing of the next vote and approve legislation he deems to be ‘vital’,” Piccoli also said.

European markets open higher ahead of crucial Brexit vote

Market focus is largely attuned to an all-important vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s much-maligned Brexit deal on Tuesday.

Remarkably — with less than 75 days to go before the country is set to leave the EU — May’s template to withdraw from the bloc faces virtually certain defeat.

That leaves the prospect of a complete collapse of government, a disorderly exit from the bloc or even the entire Brexit process being scrapped altogether over the coming weeks.

Sterling has fallen more than 10 percent against the U.S. dollar since reaching a peak of $1.4335 in April 2018, in part due to rising fears over the course of the Brexit process. The U.K. currency was trading at around $1.2905 Tuesday morning.

On the data front, France and Spain are both expected to publish a final reading of annual inflation figures for December at around 8:00 a.m. London time. The euro area will publish trade balance data for November later in the trading session.

In Asia, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares, excluding Japan, rose around 0.5 percent. It comes after China signaled more supportive measures to stabilize its cooling economy.
