Roubini Sees Double Dip for Advanced States If Oil Hits $140

March 8 (Bloomberg) -- Nouriel Roubini, the economist who predicted the global financial crisis, said an increase in oil prices to $140 a barrel will cause some advanced economies to slide back into recession.
Underlying how fragile the global economic recovery is, Roubini said the European Central Bank may be making a mistake by raising interest rates “too soon” when debt-ridden countries on the euro region’s periphery struggle to restore the competitiveness of exports.
“If you had the oil price going up to where it was in the summer of 2008, at $140 a barrel, at that point some of the advanced economies will start to double dip,” he told reporters in Dubai today. “In the U.S., where growth is accelerating fast, a 15 to 20 percent increase in oil prices, there won’t be double dip, but growth reaching a stalled speed again.”
Popular revolts sweeping the Middle East and North Africa, home to more than half of the world’s proven oil reserves, have pushed Brent crude-oil prices close to $120. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. raised its forecast for Brent crude in the second quarter of the year to $105 a barrel amid fighting in Libya between Muammar Qaddafi and rebels seeking to end his four-decade rule.
Crude for April delivery fell as much as $2.11 to $103.33 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, and was at $105 at 5:19 p.m. in Dubai. Yesterday, the contract settled at $105.44, the highest since Sept. 26, 2008. Prices are up 27 percent from a year ago.
IMF Forecast
In January, the International Monetary Fund revised its forecast for global economic growth this year to 4.4 percent from an earlier estimate of 4.2 percent, reflecting stronger U.S. output based on tax-cut extensions, while emerging nations lead the recovery.
Oil prices at their current levels probably won’t lead to a “significant” acceleration in inflation in advanced economies because they are recovering from a “severe recession” and still face high unemployment, Roubini, 52, told a conference on hedge funds in the Persian Gulf emirate earlier today.
“Workers don’t have much wage-bargaining power,” he said.
Joblessness in the U.S. unexpectedly dropped to 8.9 percent in February, according to a March 4 report from the Labor Department. The rate fell for a third straight month to the lowest level in almost two years as employers boosted payrolls by 192,000 amid growing confidence in the expansion.
The U.S. economy grew at a 2.8 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter, up from 2.6 percent in the previous three months, according to figures from the Commerce Department.
‘Barely Enough’
Still, Roubini said job creation this year in the U.S., the world’s biggest economy, is going to be “barely enough to satisfy the increase in labor supply.”
With unemployment keeping core inflation in check, raising interest rates in some advanced economies too soon would be a mistake, Roubini said.
ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet said on March 3 that policy makers may boost borrowing costs as soon as next month to fight increasing price pressures even as governments from Spain to Ireland struggle to lower their budget deficits and revive economic growth. Euro-region inflation quickened to 2.4 percent last month, the fastest since October 2008.
“My view of it is that the ECB is worrying too much about inflation,” Roubini said. A premature increase in interest rates by European policy makers may put “significant” pressure on the Bank of England to follow suit, he said.
U.K. Squeeze
The U.K. government is engaged in the country’s biggest fiscal squeeze since World War II as growth faltered and the economy shrank in the final quarter of 2010. With spending cuts due to take effect from next month, Prime Minister David Cameron is trying to drive growth in the private sector by easing planning restrictions, cutting business taxes and making it easier for small companies to bid for public contracts.
Soaring food and energy costs pushed inflation to 4 percent in January, twice the Bank of England’s target. While the central bank expects inflation to accelerate in the coming months, it has kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged. Still, three of the Bank of England’s nine policy makers last month voted for an increase.
“In the U.K., things are even more complicated because even before the monetary and fiscal tightening, fourth-quarter growth was negative,” Roubini said. “Monetary and fiscal tightening is coming to the U.K. at the worst of all times, when the economic activity is weak.”
The U.K. economy may expand 2 percent this year and 2.3 percent in 2012, according to IMF projections in January.
In the developing economies, the Washington-based lender expects consumer prices to average 6 percent this year. Roubini said inflation in some emerging economies “where monetary policy is behind the curve” risks going “out of control, in some cases to double digits,” unless central banks start raising interest rates soon or use exchange rates to stabilize prices

Subsidiary of Hong Kong Tycoon Li Ka-shing’s Hutchison Port Holdings Trust IPO

Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) Trust looks set to become Singapore’s largest ever IPO. The previous largest IPO was SingTel’s S$4 billion listing in 1993.
The subsidiary of Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka-shing’s Hutchison Whampoa plans to raise as much as S$7.3 billion (US$5.8 billion). The trust is listing here as Hong Kong regulations do not yet allow for such business trusts.
HPH offered nearly 3.9 billion units for the IPO. Out of these, 185.2 million units will be issued to the public. DBS Bank, Deutsche Bank AG and Goldman Sachs Singapore are the joint bookrunners and joint issue managers for the IPO.
The offer price ranges from US$0.91 and US$1.08 per unit. Investors subscribing for units under the public offer will need to pay S$1.383 per unit upfront. If the final offer price is less than US$1.08, they will get the appropriate refund.
Based on the price range, the Trust said implied Distribution per Unit (DPU) yield for 2011 is between 5.5% and 6.5%, and the implied DPU yield for 2012 is between 6.1% and 7.2%.
The Trust, which is the first publicly traded container port business trust, registered its prospectus with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) on Monday. I haven’t been able to find the soft copy of the prospectus yet but will make it available once I have found it.
The public offer opens at 12 noon on 7th March 2011 and closes on 14th March 2011 at 10am. The units are expected to start trading on SGX at 2pm on 18th March 2011
