From the Editor’s Desk                                        

The fluid political activity experienced recently have   knocked economics to the back row. Shockingly two major reports - the Income and Expenditure Approach of Gross domestic product for 2017 and the June Purchasing Managers' Index were released in the same week. The Income and Expenditure Approach of GDP Report showed that gross fixed capital formation at the end of the fourth quarter of 2017 stood at N4.481 trillion, reflecting an 18% and 17% growth when compared to the previous and corresponding quarter. 

Holistically, gross capital formation hewn in 2017 stood at N16.9 trillion, which reflects 11.94% rise in capital formation compared to the previous year. Capital formation to gross domestic product (income and expenditure) stood at o.149. 

Countries  with  relatively  low ratio  of Gross capital  formation to GDP  have structural  composition that  are a product  of  rigidity.  Thus, the uplift in gross capital formation can be attributed to the low base but the current ratio of gross capital formation to GDP remains tepid. Therefore, we see an urgent need to drive the ratio of Gross capital  formation  to GDP,  in order to  avert  being  stuck  in  a  secular  stagnation.

According to the report, export in 2017 stood at N15.19 trillion compared to N9.455 trillion, reflective of a 60% increase in export injection to the economy.  More importantly, this inflow constitutes 16.6% and 13% of National Income and GDP, respectively. However,  the increase in import  injections alone  make  up  1.5% of GDP, reaffirming that  growth  have largely  been  oil induced so far.  Import induced growth have largely failed take off in contrast to earlier position; and this is largely due to inward policies.   

The Central bank published the Purchasing Managers’ Index for the month of July, the indicator expanded to 56.8 for the month, thus reflective of a relatively slower pace expansion compared to the previous month. Production levels for the month under review also expanded at a relatively slower pace from 59.2 in June to 59 in July. 

Input prices in the month of June also expanded to 60.7 in the month of June, thereby expanding at the slowest pace since the indicator began to beam green light. At the same time output prices expanded to 50.3 for the month of July from 53.8 in June, thus underlining the deceleration in the pace of the expansion in output price.
