    Final Jobs Report Before U.S. Election in Store: Eco Week Ahead

    Abstract:The last U.S. jobs report before the November election will probably show the labor markets rebound continued in September, though losing some steam.

      The last U.S. jobs report before the November election will probably show the labor markets rebound continued in September, though losing some steam.

      The monthly jobs report on Friday will follow the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden on Tuesday. The report will also wrap up a busy week on the U.S. economic calendar, which includes figures on income and spending, manufacturing and consumer confidence.

      Personal spending on goods and services, which accounts for about two-thirds of gross domestic product, is projected to rise 0.8% in August, bringing the value of outlays closer to its pre-pandemic level. Still, the pace of monthly spending growth is moderating as activity with service industries such as travel, leisure and food services remains constrained by the coronavirus.

      What‘s more, the government’s report is also forecast to show a sharp decline in personal income after a federal program that delivered $600 in supplemental unemployment benefits expired at the end of the July, leaving many Americans to dig into savings to support spending.

      What Bloombergs Economists Say..

      “We estimate that another modest payroll gain in September will leave the level of employment well below the pre-crisis peak. Further declines in the unemployment rate may slow in the coming months due to increased participation from Americans trying to find work following the expiration of augmented unemployment benefits.”

      Note: Sept. figure is survey estimate; IGP-M = 60% wholesale, 30% consumer, 10% construction

      Brazil indicators this week underscore some challenges there: the IGP-M price index out Tuesday will show another jump in wholesale prices that‘s not yet pressuring headline numbers; the central bank’s budget report Wednesday will point out some dire debt dynamics; and, Friday‘s industrial production report should dovetail with what’s seen as a significant output gap.
