Welcome to Thursday, Europe. Here’s the latest news and analysis from Bloomberg Economics to help get your day started:

  • In the Swiss canton of Zug, officials are going to extremes to avoid getting penalized by the world’s lowest interest rate
  • The White House is looking at rolling out a previously agreed currency pact with China as part of an early harvest deal that could also see a tariff increase next week suspended, according to people familiar with the discussions
  • Bloomberg Economics reckons in practice, such a currency pact would probably have limited implications on China’s exchange rate policy -- barring an (unlikely) Plaza Accord type of commitment
  • Can a Federal Reserve chair make a promise today that binds their successor in the future? That question is crucial as officials weigh how best to pursue their goals
  • Japan, was implementing unconventional monetary policy well before any other peer nation. Now the central bank has again embarked on a daring new experiment - driving certain interest rates higher
  • Inflation is receding in Latin America’s two largest economies in a fresh sign of the growth challenge facing their central banks
