On the debut of Chris Cuomo’s new primetime NewsNation show, simply named Cuomo, the former CNN host began by alluding to his exit from his former network amid multiple scandals, and his time away from the news business. “I’ve been humbled by what happened, and I’m also hungry to do better in a way that I’ve never been before,” Cuomo said. “So this show is going to be different than what I’ve done in the past because I’m different, and I’ve spent a lot of time looking and listening on the sidelines.” Cuomo made multiple references in his monologue to “the game” that is constantly being played in American politics and the role the media plays. “It’s obvious to me that we need people in my position to do more,” Cuomo said, “to not just play or even referee the game that is plaguing our politics and society. That means exposing the game. Show when it’s played. Show how it’s being played.” As an example of the game Cuomo spoke of, he pointed to the messaging the right and left use on immigration to demonize the other side. “Why is all the focus on the migrants? The game,” Cuomo said. “It allows the left to show that the right has no heart, and for the right to show that the left has no head for law and order. Again, the problem works better for them than finding a solution. That is the game, and we have to change the game.”
Australia's dollar sank on Tuesday after the nation's central bank surprised markets with a smaller-than-expected interest rate hike while sterling extended its recovery a day after the British government's about-face on controversial tax cuts. The Reserve Bank of Australia said it decided to slow the pace of tightening because the cash rate had increased substantially in a short period of time, although policymakers left the door open to additional hikes. "Obviously the RBA hasn't been persuaded by what other central banks are doing, which does make the comment that they don't have any concerns about the exchange rate down here," said Ray Attrill, head of FX strategy at National Australia Bank in Sydney.

Britain's bond market is undergoing "a major repricing", but should comfortably absorb the extra 62 billion pounds ($69 billion) of debt announced after finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng's Sept. 23 mini-budget, the head of the UK Debt Management Office (DMO) said on Monday. Robert Stheeman - the man tasked with overseeing Britain's 2.1-trillion-pound government bond market - saw a parallel between the high volatility over the past 10 days and that in March 2020 early in the COVID-19 pandemic, when the Bank of England also intervened to calm markets. But overall the situation in recent days felt different, as bond dealers had generally been better able to keep trading, "albeit in very difficult conditions", compared with early 2020, Stheeman told Reuters in an interview.
