My perhaps overly simplistic view is that unless some of the various electorates hate the announced measures, they are not enough. An adequate response would be “we are going to raise the rate of price inflation, probably indefinitely, and furthermore countries x, y, and z have agreed they are not getting all of their money back. They agree to pick up the check and their electorates hate this but accept it as well and furthermore all the politicians involved are telling their electorates the same thing that they say amongst themselves. We also accept that weak lending to medium- and small-sized business represents a real competitiveness problem, a kind of Great Reset, and is not amenable to a simple monetary policy fix but we have to do something so we will try anyway.” Obviously Draghi was in no position to make such an announcement. I once liked the idea of a negative rate on deposits at the central bank, but I no longer do. I think it will represent more of a tax on future lending than a spur to current lending. Denmark once tried such a policy and it didn’t do much for them. It is probably a one-off shot in the new “currency wars” but not a game-changer. In any case total bank deposits held at the ECB are relatively small. We’ll see what else Draghi announces later today. European stocks are up, so it is hard to argue with this as an improvement over the status quo ex ante, which of course was terrible. Still, I am not as impressed as are many of the people in my Twitter feed.
The recent lack of volatility in markets has many investors scratching their heads. Both Citigroup and JPMorgan have warned that revenue in their trading segments will plunge in the second quarter. And now Goldman Sachs has chimed in on the lack of volatility and activity in the markets. In a presentation yesterday at the Sanford C. Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference, Goldman Sachs president and COO Gary Cohn explained low volatility "discourages hedging and delays opportunistic investing." He gave some context on how this lack of market action stacks up historically Continue reading

While the state is in turmoil we still have the former leader on the front page .Egyptian judicial officials have ordered former President Hosni Mubarak freed from jail, a stunning turnaround for the 85-year-old strongman who ruled the nation for three decades before being ousted in a popular revolution, and a move that could plunge the unraveling North African nation into further violence.The announcement, which comes as Egypt is roiling with new protests following the July 3 ouster of Mubarak's successor, Mohammad Morsi, stoked fears of even more violent reprisals from the Muslim Brotherhood, whose supporters have clashed with security...

The global economy has stepped back from the brink of danger and signs of stabilisation are emerging from the euro zone and the United States, but high debt levels in developed markets and rising oil prices are key risks ahead, the IMF said on Sunday. "The global economy may be on a path to recovery, but there is not a great deal of room for maneuver and no room for policy mistakes," International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director, Christine Laggard, said in a speech in Beijing. So that is it. I had read the UK had three stars, not knowing... Continue reading

The Quest for Better Data In an attempt to better understand the impact of macroeconomic trends on their business and improve their ability to plan, finance executives at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt decided last year to cast a wider net to include not only more people, but also more data in their budgeting process. As the nearly 200-year-old conglomerate struggled to determine the impact of the recession on its venerable textbook-publishing business, "We realized that our current tools weren't what we needed to help us understand how bad it could get," says Hazel Hughes, senior vice president of finance and business control at the company's K-12 division. The finance department had traditionally relied on historical data, textbook-adoption calendars, and pipeline information from the sales force to construct its budgets. But by early 2009, it needed to look outside the business for clues about its future. "We needed to find out more about how our customers were being impacted [by the recession]," says Hughes. "They were missing billions of dollars in tax receipts and they were still trying to educate kids." We have policies to save animals, however we have forgotten the human and create the atmosphere of having no cash at any time. Why are we so selfish? Are these promises? We love dogs, We will leave last testament of 30$ for the upkeep of the cats, but we are taxed daily by rail, bus, burgers, name it and we are now obese, but refuse to believe this.

Pakistan is siphoning the cash pretending to kill, kill, in Waziristan.Pass me the garlic sauce please Here we go again depending on USA and blaming all but our soldiers who (have the old armory and are tired) fight in spite of Brown’s blown up budgets and promises. Mind you, I am going back to 2001 when he crunched the figures with VISICALC and came up with fantastic Cash Flow, flawless like we had in Maggie’s time. Has he the same number digger or now he uses the shovel to see into what UK made and lost. I see we lost a lot following the WMD and came with not a drop of gas. I have no idea. Can someone tell me if Tony Blaire has been taken into the dark room to let us know why Obama received the Noble peace prize? Even BBC was on this. After sending 30,000 troops, one bright morning Obama gets a call. “Hello, your highness, your majesties, here, there on the phone humpty dumpty, is the news for you. Switch on the B/W TV and you will just catch it. The world over poured n to this and Blaire and Bush lost the deal. Checkmate. USA did it again like KFC and McDonalds. Is UK losing the steam because there is conflict no one can solve? I wonder. Can we give Darling and Brown a new Apple computer or would Micheal donate one. Shame is it not. I must sleep now. Too many broken zips in the trousers and wallet’s packets. I thank you. I feel sad that once the Great Britain bows back to the Charlie Chaplin. This is not from me. It is my son playing with the red button on the IBM. You know that small one stick that you move this way and that way 1982 model.

Darling and Cable join forces to attack Osborne over Tory plans for tax cuts. ' You need to be respected even if you have to hold Visa, Master, Fuel, ATM George's , Dinners, Launcher’s, moochers’, hitch hitchhikers’ , Buy scout, YMCA, YWCA, just CA, PAN AM( closed) TWA(closed) no, not because of you . BHS, M&S, J7J, say 20 in a wallets and (you need not use these as they are stolen anyway), show these, your one cars about to expire may get through in error. Do you know finance? It works like this. MPs' expenses finally cut back... but they can STILL employ relatives and pocket house sale profits. One thing I detest is the audit reports, “We have examined the Profit & Loss account and Balance Sheet presented to us by the directors. We have obtained all the information for the various tests we needed to comply with the Standard Procedures Papers as stated in the Company’s Act 1948, revised in 1898, 1992, 2002. We certify that the accounts represent true and fair view of the Corporation. we have not verified the items of negligence, albeit these we are promised will be rectified subject to the accounts passed in this AGM. Read that you will know. It means ground zero. You seem to have forgotten that ministers had stolen lots of cash. Is that archived? Would you, yes, you like this sort of report, comment, summary, and note. No? Well I will reject that too. I thank you. Firozali A.Mulla

If Osama is still alive and hiding, you have problems. Pakistan is siphoning the cash pretending to kill, kill, in Waziristan, and Afghanistan deep valleys.

Assorted biscuits???Economic recovery 'remains fragile' In August 2008 the oil was going slightly up and many predicted it would shoot to $300. Then I read the Article by Robert Fisk on, "Dark side of Dubai". This was another error we emotionally as reporters make. Here is what I mean. You have money in your banks. You want to invest. You approach the bank. Call them Lehman, Citi, Barclay and auditors like Deloits etc. They give you the go ahead and back you up. Then all of a sudden the over all market sees the investment has gone a little down. We scream wolf. There is panic. Whop set this up. The reporters. The construction in Dubai and Abu Dhabi are still going on. The Metro is open and more building are coming up. I admit there is a slower progress then before. However you cannot call this a "Period. The economy is out and Dubai is bleeding". It is not. Few building incomplete does not mean the flight to Dubai for job seekers are empty. They are full. So,me cars were abandoned at the the airport. The right scenarios per the traffic was 24 cars were left . The owners could not pay. This may not be hearsay but I was told 3000 cars were left. The airport at time can only take about 200 cars. This is international airport and elite. We are misled and we begin to believe. There is nothing worse coming by May this year. I am fully confident that by tend this year we will be seeing the grey clouds lift off. I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA
