    • US President Trump signed four executive orders over the weekend, providing fiscal aid to households
    • The key item is a memorandum calling for a USD400 per week federal top-up to unemployment insurance
    • However, the action is a stop-gap measure – a more comprehensive deal is needed to support the recovery
