U.S. likely ran a $193 billion deficit in November versus $145 billion a year earlier, CBO saysThe federal government likely ran a budget deficit of $193 billion in November, up from $145 billion in the same month last year, the Congressional Budget Office estimated Wednesday. The Treasury Department will release the official deficit data on Friday. The U.S. budget deficit hit $2.8 trillion in fiscal year 2021, the second highest on record. The CBO projects the 2022 deficit will narrow to $1.2 billion, in part because the federal government is no longer providing emergency pandemic assistance. For instance, outlays for unemployment compensation fell by $21 billion compared with the same month last year, the CBO said. Cecilia Rouse, chair of the White House council of economic advisers. said Tuesday that the slowdown in government spending will result in an 8.5% contraction in "the fiscal impulse" on the economy in 2022, one of the biggest drops since World War II.

Tilray said the deal will add to its Ebitda, but it did not provide a dollar figure. Tilray CEO Irwin D. Simon said the acquisition by the cannabis company is aimed at leveraging its portfolio of U.S. brands to launch THC-based products upon federal legalization of cannabis in the U.S. Breckenridge Distillery founder and CEO Bryan Nolt said the company's success will "unquestionably benefit from access to Tilray's global distribution network and opportunities to expand into cannabis and edible-related products in the U.S." The sellers of Breckenridge were led by Sababa Partners I LLC, an entity controlled by Sir Martin E. Franklin. Tilray shares rose 1.4% in pre-market trades.

U.S. consumer credit moderates in OctoberU.S. consumer credit increased $16.9 billion in October, down from a $27.8 billion gain in September, according to Federal Reserve data released Tuesday. Economists had been expecting a $25 billion gain, according to the Wall Street Journal forecast. That's an annual growth rate of 4.7% in October, down from a 7.7% gain in the prior month. Revolving credit, like credit cards, rose 7.8% after an 11.7% gain in September. Nonrevolving credit, typically auto and student loans, rose 3.7% after a 6.5% growth rate in the prior month. This category of credit is much less volatile. It fell briefly at the start of the pandemic before returning to steady growth, although more recently, it has been depressed by the lack of supply of new cars. The data does not include mortgage loans, which is the largest category of household debt.
