    The COVID-19 pandemic continues to wrought unprecedented disruption in Asia with lockdowns currently in place in Bangladesh and the Lao PDR while various restrictions in place in Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam accompanied by continued economic uncertainty and border restrictions. In response, government officials and leading financial institutions across South and Southeast Asia have issued various initiatives, stimulus measures and relief efforts within their respective countries in an attempt to shore up the hardest hit sectors of their economies and extend support to various industries and vulnerable groups directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Some of these measures have included liquidity injections for certain at-risk banks, relaxation on terms and conditions of loan repayments by vulnerable borrowers, refinancing and restructuring arrangements, deferral or postponement of tax payments and extended filing deadlines, among others.

    We hope that this publication provides a helpful overview of the key measures, exemptions and initiatives being pursued in an effort to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the region.

    Being accepted to the upper echelons of post-secondary art schools is notoriously difficult, with some of the top schools having an acceptance rate of a mere 22%. It requires impeccable grades, dedication, and immense artistic talent to get a spot at any art school – let alone multiple.

    Luckily for Grade 12 student Rin Audsabumrungrat, she exudes all of the above in spades. In natural response to her enviable talent, she received acceptances and scholarship offers from University of the Arts London (UAL) and Parsons School of Design – The New School in New York. She was also accepted to Savannah College of Art and Design and School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She’s a shining example of how when young talent is fostered, encouraged and given opportunities it can blossom into something truly incredible.

    “Art to me is basically a space or a world where I can be myself comfortably and express my own opinions and emotions. In a way, it’s also my voice because I’m not as talkative. I use art as a way for me to talk and express my opinions out loud,” she says.

    Like many SMUS students, Rin is an incredibly accomplished and creative artist. She received a perfect score on her AP Art Studio portfolio in her Grade 11 year. She also participated in the six-week Rhode Island School of Design pre-college program before that school year even started. What makes Rin a uniquely different student artist is that she may receive perfect scores for her AP Studio Art portfolios two more times this year, says teacher Brad Ingimundson.

    AP Studio Art at SMUS is three different and distinct courses: Drawing, 2D Design, or 3D Design, depending on a student’s specific interest. Rin is that “exceptional student” who committed to taking the course three different times to highlight her talent and interest in all three artistic areas.

    “She is a compulsive drawer, a natural designer, and a deeply thoughtful artist who innately understands the power of the visual image for communication and persuasion,” Brad says. “We at SMUS are truly fortunate that she is in our midst.”

    Having taken AP Art Studio three times in two years, she’s created pieces in varying media, from acrylic paintings and sketches to hand-sewn pieces and dresses made entirely from paper. She spends her free time drawing detailed portraits just to learn how to better draw wrinkles and textures on someone’s face. Each piece is beautiful, and the level of finesse displayed is incredible for any professional artist, let alone one in high school with many other academic and social demands.

    For one of her AP portfolios, Rin created a series of candid portraits of her friends without telling any of them. These paintings, she says, are a kind of goodbye present to the friends she has made during her time at SMUS.

    Rin came to SMUS as a boarder in Grade 9 from Thailand and says she feels like she has grown in her artistic journey in a way that she wouldn’t have if she had stayed in Thailand.

    “The Thai education system really values STEM subjects like science and math. I feel like if I had stayed in Thailand, I would probably end up going to med school,” she says. “[At SMUS], I think I’ve learned to focus more on the [artistic] working process and incorporating different ideas and social issues into my work. … In Thailand, it was really about making it look perfect; making it look exactly like the original image. [Being here], I think my art became a lot more expressive.”

    After much deliberation, Rin will attend UAL to pursue a degree in fashion design, with the ultimate goal of creating her own fashion brand. She says this decision is in part impacted by her artistic influences: Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior, and Brad Ingimundson.

    Like Chiuri, Rin hopes to use her future runway shows to comment on social issues and evoke cultural change. She says Brad has been her most influential teacher and has helped her in her artistic journey by providing great instruction and helpful criticism, instead of blanket praise, which has been incredibly helpful for her growth.

    We are proud of Rin’s achievements and growth as an artist while at SMUS, and we will be eagerly waiting and watching to see how she uses her talents and skills in the years ahead at UAL and in the fashion world.

    Capital Contagion - It goes where it can Impact the Most 

    by Paul Gambles & James Fraser

    Capital always does what capital does. It flows to the places that make the highest returns and the highest returns over the last year were some pretty crazy places. As we know it was Tesla, Ark funds, cryptos and SPACs (so-called ‘blank cheque’ special purpose vehicles where well-known managers raise funds from investors, and then find venture capital and private equity opportunities to invest into and to list on markets in reverse listings and public offerings).. That's just where the best market returns have been. That's a fact of how liquidity fuels bubbles but it doesn’t last forever and the liquidity that's driven these bubbles is not coming in at the same rate anymore so we could see these bubbles heading into a pretty nasty storm. Remember, liquidity-fuelled, bubbles need continued increasing inflows and we're not getting that anymore.

    In short, liquidity has fuelled risk assets, especially meretricious[1] ones, but value is difficult to discover in risk assets, except where it reflects discounts in other asset classes such as gold bullion, that hasn’t attracted bubble capital.

    Liquidity has largely Ignored Higher Quality, less Volatile assets.

    Another example of an underperforming asset class is US treasuries. In a mirror image of the equity market, high risk, illiquid corporate bonds have dramatically outperformed both less risky and less illiquid high quality corporate bonds and highest quality, most liquid treasuries:


    This during a period when deteriorating economic conditions led to record number of credit downgrades (which should have adversely affected high yield above all).

    Just to recap- liquidity, logically, found its way to the places where it had the greatest impact but, if anything, this led to outflows from the places where it would have the least impact, such as gold and treasuries (physical gold and gold miners have rebounded in recent weeks but mainly for the wrong reason which seems to be ‘mispriced’ inflation expectations).

    Exaggerated & Misplaced Inflation Expectations Higher inflation expectations over a short-term are justified as of course many commodities are higher than they were a year ago when the price of oil, for instance, traded at a negative number as well supply chain disruptions and post-Covid lockdown bottlenecks. Several other commodities including lumber, rubber, and steel have also spiralled over the past 12months (along with e. g. freight and transport costs for equivalent reasons) but that doesn’t equal inflation because these prices are supply shocks and are not ‘sticky’ and the mechanisms of these markets will work them out before too long, and in fact this seems to have started already. Sticky factors, like wages, still seems suppressed in real terms.

    Stimulus hasn’t adequately addressed needs of the Job Market The number of US employees remains almost 10 million below pre-COVID levels and the best part of 14 million people less than it would have otherwise been projected to be at this stage:


    Debt, Demographics and Dispersion reduce the effectiveness of US Stimulus of US employment (and real personal income) which was stagnating before the COVID outbreak. Growth has been in a secular decline for multiple years, private debt levels remain at post-GFC highs and long-term growth expectation indicators remain bleak. On top of these structural issues, debt level and dispersion worsened during the COVID lockdown and COVID ‘scarring’ effects are an added psychological burden on re-opening. The economic outlook was challenging before COVID. The failure of stimulus to address or adequately mitigate these challenges has only made this outlook even darker. Unless there is a radical change in the nature of stimulus policies, there is no reason to expect that additional stimulus measures will have any impact other than fuelling further liquidity bubbles in other risk assets, while doing nothing nearly enough to address the economic challenges.


    Further Stimulus will likely create new Bubbles The real economy is an even less attractive  proposition for generating immediate returns on capital and therefore, along with low risk, liquid assets, appears to have also failed to benefit. Capex and hiring remain extremely subdued (we’ve covered this in pieces such as The value of US 20 year treasuries has fallen by over 11% this year ...Should we all be buying treasury bonds? (mbmg-group.com) and Stimulus – Will it Work? (mbmg-group.com).
