Britain starts search for 'highest caliber' Bank of England governor

Britain’s finance minister Philip Hammond began the search for a new governor of the Bank of England on Wednesday, seeking someone to help steer the world’s fifth-biggest economy, and its global financial center, through the upheaval of Brexit.

Mark Carney, a Canadian, twice extended his term in charge of the British central bank as the country heads for an exit from the European Union. But he has ruled out a further delay even though Brexit remains up in the air.

“We are looking, obviously, for a candidate of the highest caliber. As we leave the European Union it’s very important that the UK continues to play an important role in global fora,” Hammond told a parliamentary committee.

He said he hoped to make an appointment in October, with the new governor starting in February 2020. He said his preference was to hire someone for an eight-year term, although he would consider deviating from this for an exceptional candidate.

Carney took up his role on July 1, 2013, and will step down on Jan. 31, 2020.

Hammond thanked Carney for helping to lead the U.K. economy through “a challenging period and we are now seeing stable, low inflation and the fastest wage growth in over a decade”.

Hammond said earlier this month he hoped that concerns about Brexit would not deter potential applicants for a role with an annual salary of £480,000 ($620,000).

“We know from the experience of the previous crisis that it is through cooperation between central banks that we ensure stability … therefore it’s very important that as well as having someone who can do a first-class job at home, we have someone who commands respect in the international arena,” Hammond said on Wednesday.

The recruitment process has been designed to ensure that the most qualified candidate is appointed from the broadest possible pool of applicants, the finance ministry said.

Potential candidates include former BOE deputy governor Andrew Bailey who is now chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority, a markets regulator, and current top officials at the BOE including deputy governor Ben Broadbent and chief economist Andy Haldane.

Raghuram Rajan, who was governor of the Reserve Bank of India from 2013 to 2016, and chief economist at the International Monetary Fund between 2003 and 2006, declined to comment when he was asked this month whether he would consider a return to active policymaking.

The Treasury has appointed a recruitment firm, Sapphire Partners, to help in the search – the first time it has sought external help to find a BOE governor.

A Treasury official said the appointment of recruiters would help ensure the widest pool of candidates for the job. The Treasury was aiming to conduct interviews for the job over the summer.

More student loan borrowers are getting their tax refunds seized

As she scanned the letter’s black type, Alexis Patterson felt herself go numb. “The U.S. Department of Treasury … applied all or part of your payment to delinquent debt that you owe,” it read. Patterson stopped reading. The single mother would not receive her $3,063 tax refund, including her child tax credit. The government would instead apply the money to her past-due student loan account.

As she scanned the letter’s black type, Alexis Patterson felt herself go numb. “The U.S. Department of Treasury … applied all or part of your payment to delinquent debt that you owe,” it read.

Patterson stopped reading. One thing mattered now. The single mother would not receive her $3,063 tax refund, including her child tax credit. The government would instead apply the money to her past-due student loan account.

She and her 11-year-old daughter, Ophelia, have been homeless over the last few months in Portland, Oregon. Her refund, she hoped, would help them secure a place to stay.

“Everything just fell out from beneath me,” Patterson, 47, said.

House Democrats give IRS until April 23 to hand over Trump's tax returns

House Democrats have given the Internal Revenue Service a new deadline to hand over President Donald Trump’s tax returns days after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said his department would miss the original deadline of April 10.

In a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig sent Saturday by Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., Democrats gave a second and final deadline of April 23 for six years of Trump’s personal and business tax returns. The lawmakers could go to court to seek the returns if the IRS does not turn them over.

“To date, the IRS has failed to provide the requested return and return information despite an unambiguous legal obligation to do so … Please know that, if you fail to comply, your failure will be interpreted as a denial of my request,” Neal wrote in the letter.

The letter also states that there is “no valid basis to question the legitimacy of the Committee’s legislative purpose,” citing Supreme Court instructions that Congress’ power to investigate is “broad.”

“It is not the proper function of the IRS, Treasury, or Justice to question or second guess the motivations of the Committee or its reasonable determinations regarding its need for the requested tax returns and return information,” Neal wrote.

The Ways and Means Committee first sent a formal request to the Treasury Department for Trump’s tax returns on April 3, giving the department a deadline of April 10 to produce the documents.

“I today submitted to IRS Commissioner Rettig my request for six years of the president’s personal tax returns as well as the returns for some of his business entities. We have completed the necessary groundwork for a request of this magnitude and I am certain we are within our legitimate legislative, legal, and oversight rights,” Neal said in a statement.

But Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin pushed back on the request, saying his department would be unable to meet the deadline.

In a letter to Neal, Mnuchin said the Treasury was continuing to review Democrats’ request in light of “serious issues” about whether the request is proper.

“The legal implications of this request could affect protections for all Americans against politically motivated disclosures of personal tax information, regardless of which party is in power,” Mnuchin wrote, saying he was consulting with the Justice Department about the legality and constitutionality of Neal’s request.

Mnuchin said that “for the same reasons,” he intended to supervise the department’s review personally.

Trump’s tax returns have been a contentious subject since he was a candidate for president. He has claimed that he cannot release his returns because he is under audit by the IRS.

However, in congressional testimony in February, Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen said he’d seen no proof that any audit was under way. And tax experts have said that even if he is under audit, there’s nothing to stop Trump from releasing his returns.

Fed must ‘tread carefully’ given market signals on outlook: Bullard

Fed must 'tread carefully' given market signals on outlook: Bullard

Financial markets are sending worrisome signals about the U.S. economic outlook and the Federal Reserve needs to “tread carefully” to keep the economy growing, a policymaker at the U.S. central bank said on Thursday.

St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard said two particularly important signals were coming in the form of yields on different U.S. federal debt securities and on investor bets on the inflation outlook.

Bullard, who has a vote this year on the Fed’s rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee, or FOMC, released slides for a presentation at a community development event in Tupelo, Mississippi.

“These market-based signals indicate that the FOMC needs to tread carefully going forward in order to sustain the economic expansion,” according to one of the slides.

Bullard said in the slides that policymakers need to take seriously the possibility of a prolonged period in which interest rates are lower for short-term U.S. government debt than for long-term debt could signal a recession.

Market observers pay attention to numerous spreads between different U.S. Treasury securities.

Bullard said in his slides that some parts of the yield curve are already inverted. Indeed, currently yields the 3-year and 5-year U.S. Treasury notes are lower than those on 2-year notes and Treasury bills.

Bullard also noted that investors appear to be betting that inflation will fall short of the Fed’s 2 percent target rate in 2019 and also over the next five years.

Trump hires law firm to fight bid by Congress to get his income tax returns

President Donald Trump has hired a law firm to battle congressional efforts to see his income tax returns. The letter escalates the legal dispute between the White House and House Democrats, who formally requested the president’s tax returns on Wednesday evening. It was the first time Congress asked for a sitting president’s tax information in 45 years. Asked Wednesday about sending his tax returns to Congress, he said that “until such time as I as I am not under audit, I will not be doing that.

Trump hires law firm to fight bid by Congress to get his income tax returns

President Donald Trump has hired a law firm to battle congressional efforts to see his income tax returns.

In a letter Friday to Treasury Department General Counsel Brent McIntosh, lawyer William Consovoy argued that the House Ways and Means Committee has no “legitimate committee purpose” for seeking the president’s returns. The attorney from the law firm Consovoy McCarthy Park also wrote that the Treasury would set “set a dangerous precedent” by releasing the returns.

“Even if Ways and Means had a legitimate committee purpose for requesting the President’s tax returns and return information, that purpose is not driving Chairman [Richard] Neal’s request. His request is a transparent effort by one political party to harass an official from the other party because they dislike his politics and speech,” Consovoy argued in the letter obtained by NBC News.

The letter escalates the legal dispute between the White House and House Democrats, who formally requested the president’s tax returns on Wednesday evening. Trump, who came into office in 2017 still owning sprawling global business holdings, did not release his returns during the 2016 election, breaking with decades of precedent. Democrats have said politics did not inspire their request.

Neal, D-Mass., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, asked the IRS, which is part of the Treasury, for six years of the president’s personal tax returns and some of those for his businesses. It was the first time Congress asked for a sitting president’s tax information in 45 years.

“I take the authority to make this request very seriously, and I approach it with the utmost care and respect,” Neal said in a statement Wednesday. “This request is about policy, not politics; my preparations were made on my own track and timeline, entirely independent of other activities in Congress and the Administration.”

Trump has repeatedly claimed he cannot release his returns because he is under audit. Asked Wednesday about sending his tax returns to Congress, he said that “until such time as I as I am not under audit, I will not be doing that.”

Some legal experts have disputed the argument.

On Wednesday, Neal in part said his committee “has a duty to examine whether Congressional action may be needed to require such audits, and to oversee that they are conducted properly.”

In his letter, Consovoy argued “it would be a gross abuse of power for the majority party to use tax returns as a weapon to attack, harass, and intimidate their political opponents.”

“Once this Pandora’s box is opened, the ensuing tit-for-tat will do lasting damage to our nation,” he writes. “Can the Chairman request the returns of his primary opponents? His general-election opponents? Judges who are hearing his case?”

Spokespeople for the Treasury Department and Neal did not immediately respond to requests to comment on the letter.

Democrats have wanted to see the president’s tax returns in order to determine whether his personal holdings pose any conflicts with his policymaking. Polls have found broad public support for Trump releasing his tax returns.

Sixty-seven percent of respondents to a Quinnipiac University poll in February said they think Trump should publicly release his tax returns, versus 24 percent who said he should not. Fifty-two percent of respondents said they think he has not released his tax returns “because he has something to hide,” while 19 percent responded that he had not done so because he was being audited.

U.S. government debt prices were higher Tuesday, following the release of solid manufacturing data in the U.S. and China.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.476 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond dipped to 2.876 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Market players digested strong manufacturing data of the U.S. and China.

U.S. factory activity expanded last month, data showed, rebounding from its lowest level since late 2016. A separate survey showed China’s manufacturing activity also rebounded, expanding at its fastest pace in eight months.
