HB WASHINGTON. Shortly before the expected cash injection by the U.S. Federal Reserve to strengthen the economy, the economic sky has cleared up a bit: The U.S. private sector expanded in October, a surprising number of new jobs in services such as on Wednesday published collection of private employment agency ADP showed. Accordingly, the number of jobs rose in the private sector by 43 000th This was the job of building more than twice as strong as expected by Reuters had consulted experts.
At the same time improved the order book of U.S. industry in September surprisingly well. The orders went to the previous month by 2.1 percent. Experts had expected only 1.6 percent.
The shops of the U.S. service run better: The very respected in the financial services index of the Institute for Supply Management (ISM), in October by 1.1 to 54.3 points. Readings above 50 indicate growth in this sector, which contributes about 70 percent of economic output.
Despite all these signs of hope, the disappointing economic development and have been directed especially to the plight of the job Democrats of President Barack Obama the biggest defeat in congressional elections in decades. Now face a political stalemate, as the authorities could block each other.
The Federal Reserve is expected in this context the view of observers in the evening (19.15 GMT Clock) set an example and take the lame economy with a pillar of the economy under his arms. In conversation, the purchase of government bonds with a volume of several hundred billion dollars. Even in the crisis, the Fed in a program totaling 1.75 trillion dollar had opened.
Nevertheless, the central bank of the economy is not quite a helping hand, as in the third quarter, only a mixed growth jumped out of projected annualized 2.0 percent. Now the Fed wants to stoking the economy and make legs. Some experts expect, however, after recent signs of hope from the economic monetary policy no fireworks, "The Fed-program should be moderate," says U.S. economist David Keator.
Obama must, however, after the defeat in the congressional elections reinvent. Polling stations across the country had not yet closed, as were the "new Obama" a first smoke signals. He was willing to cooperate with the Republicans. We must find common ground. This is about America.
The statement by the White House is just three thin lines long – but what they proclaimed, is nothing other than the end of the reform era of the first black president in U.S. history. Million Americans are asking themselves: What now? No doubt Obama has fallen deep. Experts calculate that it was the largest defeat in the House of Representatives since 1948.
Although the Democrats succeeded in keeping the majority in the Senate almost – but basically, the worst fears have occurred. After election night, Obama is not who he was. The "Change" (change) is placed first in the files.
Rarely, the U.S. has experienced a presidential election after such a rapid and so profound change of mood: almost to the day two years ago – it was on 4 November – seemed the whole country in a frenzy: The first black president, a "new Kennedy", everything seemed possible. "Yes we can."
But it took less than twelve months, since the wind had turned thoroughly. Sluggish economy, lack of jobs – and then the hard-hitting populist and fundamentalist opposition to the Tea Party movement caused the President seem strange pale and ineffectual. "The president went through the meat grinder of Washington," says John Zogby, the pollster. The aggressive and "super-heated political climate," Obama was simply wiped out. The Wall Street Journal, which recently pressed a little different: once again will show "that America can not be ruled by the Sun".
And now? Long will the White House for the scenarios played out "day after". The commitment to collaboration is the first step of "Obama II". Even expert Zogby speaks of "the olive branch of the president," others point to the "Clinton model".
Bill Clinton had been run by its first two years in the White house in 1994 also a hefty defeat. He responded promptly went to move closer to the Republicans, the bit back further major reforms – and two years later re-elected as president.
But if the "Clinton model" is questionable again this time caught. Instead of cooperation between the camps, many fear more gridlock – not exactly reassuring prospects for a world power.
First full-bodied statements from radical Tea Party-elected, which will "bring back our country," can imagine no good, would even suggest that because fundamental opposition to compromise. Leading Republicans are already making clear that they have only one aim: that Obama is a "one-term president" is – a president who is only a term in the White House.
"I’m skeptical that there will be real cooperation," says political expert John Fortier. Too strong polarization between the parties was already well advanced. In addition to already draw from the start of the presidential campaign. Bad signs for a detente between the fronts.
After the election is a choice: Even Obama is now comprised predominantly of 2012 in the eye. Already it is clear that already eliminated at the beginning of his closest advisers David Axelrod from the White House. prepare for Obama’s re-election in two years: Axelrod’s task. First experts fear a marathon election campaign – the willingness to cooperate and compromise, thereby threatening to sink soon.
