Four-Month Loan Extension For Greece

February 21st, 2015 by James

On Friday, the finance ministers of euro zone agreed in principle to extend Greece’s financial rescue by four months. This decision averted a potential cash crunch in March that could have forced Greece out of the currency area.

Four-Month Loan Extension For Greece

The deal, which is to be ratified once creditors of Greece are satisfied, ends weeks of uncertainty since the election of a leftist-led government in Athens that pledged to reverse austerity. “Tonight was a first step in this process of rebuilding trust,” Jeroen Dijsselbloem, chairman of the 19-nation Eurogroup, told a news conference. “We have established common ground again to reach agreement on this statement.”

The agreement provides a breathing space for the new Greek government to help it negotiate longer-term debt relief with its official creditors.

European Union paymaster Germany, Greece’s biggest creditor, has asked for “significant improvements” in reform commitments by Athens before it would accept an extension of euro zone funding.”Being in government is a date with reality, and reality is often not as nice as a dream,” German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told reporters. He stressed Athens would get no aid payments until its bailout program was properly completed.

“The Greeks certainly will have a difficult time to explain the deal to their voters,” the conservative veteran said.

The accord requires Greece to submit a letter by Monday to the Eurogroup listing all the policy measures it plans to take during the remainder of the bailout period. Euro zone member states will ratify the extension, where necessary through their parliaments if the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund are satisfied.

Berlin Wants Greece To Stay In Euro Zone, Says Germany’s Vice Chancellor

January 7th, 2015 by James

Germany’s Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said the German government wants Greece to stay in the euro zone and there are no contingency plans to the contrary. Gabriel was responding to a media report that Berlin is of the view that the currency union could cope without Greece.

Sigmar Gabriel

Gabriel, the Economy Minister and leader of the center-left Social Democrats (SPD), added the euro zone had become more resilient in recent years and could not be “blackmailed”.

“The goal of the German government, the European Union and even the government in Athens itself is to keep Greece in the euro zone,” Gabriel said in an interview to Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung. “There were no and there are no other plans to the contrary,” he said. Gabriel also said the euro zone had become far more stable in recent years.

“That’s why we can’t be blackmailed and why we expect the Greece government, no matter who leads it, to abide by the agreements made with the EU,” he said while referring to the January 25 Greek election and a possible change of government.

Earlier, a spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel, Georg Streiter, remarked that the government of Germany expects Greece to stick to the terms of its 240-billion euro EU/IMF bailout agreement.

A report in Der Spiegel magazine on Saturday said Berlin now believed the euro zone would be able to cope with a Greek exit, or “Grexit”, if necessary. Berlin considers “Grexit” almost unavoidable if the left-wing Syriza opposition party wins Greece’s election, Der Spiegel reported. Syriza wants to cancel austerity measures and a chunk of Greek debt.

December 25th, 2014 by James

The positive point is that the world’s largest economy has managed to continue generating wealth, create jobs, and grow its economy despite all obstacles and the conundrum is answered by Fracking for hydrocarbon fuels.

Benefits Of Fracking-Importance Of Hydraulic Fracturing

Fracking or hydraulic fracturing began in 1947 as an experiment. In 1949, the first commercially successful application happened and approximately 2.5 million fracking operations had been performed around the world on oil and gas wells by the year 2012.

   Every country is trying to reap the innumerable benefits of fracking. It is believed by many industry experts that fracking can actually power even big economies like the United Kingdom for the next half century even a tenth of the shale reserves of the country are used. It is worthwhile to note here that there are around 40 trillion cubic meters of shale gas in northern England alone according to the estimates of a British Geological Survey. It was rightly quoted by David Cameron, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party, that shale gas projects can benefit communities financially.

The list of advantages associated with Fracking does not end here. Fracked energy is one of the cheapest sources of hydrocarbon energy. Secondly, use of Fracking can create a lot of jobs and the wealth generated can be employed to serve the economy, society, and people in different ways. Thirdly, Fracked gas can be used to improve the balance of payments as it can easily replace the expensive and imported oil and gas.

In short, we need to understand the benefits of Fracking to help grow our economy in more than just a way. This will not only help us and the economies of the world, but it will also lead the right way for the future of our children and grandchildren.

Dow And S&P 500 Finished At Record Highs

Technology shares gave the markets their biggest lifts, along with energy. Intel shares jumped 4.7 percent to $35.95 to boost all three major indexes. Intel shares hit their highest level since January 2002, after its 2015 revenue outlook was above expectations of the Wall Street and the company raised its dividend.

Data showed factory activity in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region grew at its fastest pace in two decades. In October, U.S. home resales jumped to their highest in more than a year.

Margaret Patel, senior portfolio manager at Wells Capital Management, said growth in the economy and earnings should bode well for stocks heading into next year.

“Next year will be a reasonable to maybe a surprisingly good year,” she said. “(There is) no reason in the world why we can’t see P/Es expand.” Patel said stocks could rise by a mid single-digit to high-teens percentage next year.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 33.27 points, or 0.19 percent, to 17,719, a record close. The S&P 500 gained 4.03 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,052.75, its 44th record high this year. The Nasdaq Composite added 26.16 points, or 0.56 percent, to 4,701.87.

Hungarian Protesters Urge To Scrap Internet Tax

November 1st, 2014 by James

On Sunday, more than 10,000 people marched in Budapest to demand the scrapping of a proposed tax on Internet use. The critics of Prime Minister Viktor Orban call the proposed tax on internet use as his latest anti-democratic measure.

Hungarian protesters urge to scrap Internet tax

“There will be no Internet tax… we will block it,” organizer Balazs Gulyas told the crowd to cheers. “If the tax is not scrapped within 48 hours, we will be back again,” he said.

In an echo of recent pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, the crowd held smartphone torches aloft outside the economy ministry and held signs with slogans such as “Free Wifi! Free Internet! Free Hungary!”

Included in Fidesz’s 2015 budget proposal, the tax would charge telecom companies 150 forints (about 61 cents) per gigabyte of data and can reduce the budget deficit of Hungary to within the European Union standard of 3 percent of GDP by generating potential revenue from the tax at 100 billion forints ($414 million).

Economy Minister Mihaly Varga said the tax of 150 forints (0.50 euros, $0.61) on each transferred gigabyte of data — was required to help shore up the 2015 budget of Hungary, one of the EU’s most indebted nations. Varga added the internet use tax was fair because it was a shift away from phone lines and to the Internet.

“The EU has been critical of Orban for introducing illiberal policies, but they’ve not used all available tools to sanction him,” said Tsveta Petrova, a Europe analyst at Eurasia Group, a political risk consultancy. “They’ve allowed Fidesz to claim it is defending Hungarians against the interests of European bureaucrats.”
