Banker Leonhard Fischer über selbstzerstörerischen Finanzkapitalismus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Fischer: Die Globalisierung der Finanzmärkte besteht im Wesentlichen darin, dass die Amerikaner sich in ihrer eigenen Währung verschulden können und den Dollar so in die ganze Welt exportiert haben, um ihr riesiges Leistungsbilanzdefizit zu finanzieren. Ich habe als junger Banker bei J.P. Morgan selbst erlebt, wie die Investmentbanker in Scharen erst nach London flogen, dann nach Tokio und schließlich nach China, um Dollaranleihen für Schuldner aus den USA zu platzieren. Gleichzeitig investierten wir das Geld amerikanischer Fonds weltweit in Unternehmen und Immobilien. Ganz Amerika hat sich wie ein gigantischer Hedgefonds verhalten. So entstand die globale Finanzmarktmaschinerie, die in Wahrheit vor allem eine amerikanische ist.

The UK’s vegetable shortage was not a blip – it’s a sign of things to come | Felicity Lawrence | Opinion | The Guardian
But when you take into account climate change, the shortages of early 2017 look more like a taste of things to come than just a blip, and that is almost impossible for supermarkets to admit. [...] First, it depends on the profligate use of finite resources – water, soil, and fossil fuels (with all their greenhouse gas emissions).

NHS budget control 'will require staff cuts'
It says the government should be honest about NHS spending plans at a time when patient demand is rising. [...] The NHS leadership is set to unveil plans to get hospitals and other trusts to stick to agreed spending limits. In the last financial year, trusts ran up a collective deficit of £2.4bn - and the aim is to cut that figure significantly. [...] "It is no longer credible to argue that the NHS can continue to meet increasing demand for services, deliver current standards of care and stay within its budget. This is widely understood within the NHS and now needs to be debated with the public. "There are no easy choices, but it would be disastrous to adopt a mindset that fails to acknowledge the serious state of the NHS in England today." //&! bbc.in/29mkr7G - An overspend would be a serious breach of Whitehall protocol and lead to senior officials being hauled over the coals by the National Audit Office.

Budget 2016: Osborne's economic fitness regime - BBC News
[2015] 80% OF ECONOMY CONSUMER SPENDING! - The economy has enjoyed what Andrew Goodwin of Oxford Economics describes as a "sugar rush" -the equivalent of a big tax cut - or 'fiscal stimulus' - through lower petrol prices. The economy grew by 2.2% last year; 80% of that growth was down to consumer spending. "That [growth] strikes us as some distance below par given the tailwinds we have had," Mr Goodwin says. And after the sugar rush comes the sugar crash: growth is likely to be revised down in the years to come because of global economic weakness.

ECB reveals surprise stimulus moves - BBC News
[C]ut its main interest rate from 0.05% to 0% as part of a package of measures intended to revive the eurozone economy.
The bank will also expand its quantitative easing programme from €60bn to €80bn a month.
The ECB also decided to further cut its bank deposit rate, from minus 0.3% to minus 0.4%.
The measures, including the decision to cut the main interest rate, were more radical than investors had expected. John Hardy, head of currency strategy at Saxo Bank, said: "This was a much bigger bazooka than the market was expecting and shows the ECB trying to get ahead of the confidence curve after learning its lesson in December."
The stimulus measures announced three months ago have largely failed to drive economic growth higher or boost inflation. //&! bit.ly/1TP0XJJ - Volles Risiko &! bit.ly/1P8hncF &! bit.ly/1RCF3Tp &!

IEA warns consumers of spike in oil prices - BBC News
[ Saudie's playing game of who has the deepest pockets against USA and Canada ] The International Energy Agency (IEA) is warning consumers not to let cheap oil lull them into a false sense of security amid forecasts of a price spike by 2021. In a report, the IEA said it expects prices to start recovering in 2017. But it forecasts that will be followed by a sharp jump in price as supply shrinks following under-investment by struggling producers.

As oil prices have collapsed, it's become clear that Norway has caught what used to be called the Dutch disease - an overreliance on one industry, in this case the oil and gas sector.

[...] Unbalanced economy [...] "The oil and gas industry became too strong in our economy, especially during the last four or five years, reflects Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

'Panic situation': Asian stocks tumble amid fears of new global recession | Business | The Guardian
central banks have few avenues left to explore to encourage investment and boost growth. Talk of an impending recession in the US, however, is creating speculation among investors that the federal reserve will put on hold its attempts to normalise rates. “The ‘fear factor’ in markets has morphed from being about an emerging market hard-landing and collapsing oil prices to being about the extent of the slowdown in the developed world and the ability of central banks to reflate asset values yet again,” said analysts at Citi in a note. //&!

Ähnlich frei wie Litauen soll sich bald ganz Europa fühlen. Derzeit sind viele EU-Mitgliedstaaten noch stark von den russischen Lieferungen abhängig. Mit einem Marktanteil von rund 40 Prozent ist Russland noch immer der mit Abstand größte Gaslieferant der EU. Doch nun hat die EU-Kommission nach Informationen von SPIEGEL ONLINE zentrale Infrastrukturprojekte definiert, durch die bald jeder EU-Staat sein Gas aus mehreren Ländern beziehen können soll. [...] Modellrechnungen zeigten, dass die angestrebten Projekte "echte Gassicherheit und Wettbewerb" in den gesamten EU-Markt brächten, heißt es in dem Entwurf aus Brüssel. Die Projekte sollen deshalb über EU-Mittel gefördert werden. Zwischenstaatliche Energieabkommen und selbst Lieferverträge einzelner Unternehmen [ strike price ] will die Kommission künftig vorab prüfen. [...] Nordstream-Pipeline

The lights are going out for solar energy
Back in December, when most people were focussed on Christmas and not renewable subsidies, the government quietly published their decision to cut Feed-in Tariffs for industries such as solar, wind and hydropower by a staggering 65 per cent. Included in the small print was analysis which showed a possible 19,000 job losses, mostly in solar, which would see that industry shrink to under half its size. [...] Instead the government is thinking short-term, and our economy will suffer. For a party that wants people to think of it as economically competent, this is an incredibly bad move.

[...] “No one is making money (in the key North American market) at $30 per barrel oil and every oil company is taking as many writedowns as they can.

Carney: No need for interest rate rises now - BBC News
Carney said that collapsing oil prices and an "unforgiving" global environment meant that tighter monetary policy was not yet necessary. [...] He pointed out that the Fed's rate rise had only brought the US interest rate to the same "lofty level" as the Bank of England's. The Governor said that three factors would be the strongest guide to when interest rates might rise. First, that economic growth in the UK would be higher than the average trend. He said that growth at an average quarterly rate of 0.5% in 2015 had "disappointed". Second, that wage growth strengthens and productivity improves. And, third, that core inflation starts to approach the target rate of 2%. //&!

And herein lies the rub, because the more energy suppliers go into bankruptcy to remove the excess supply which is the critical condition of Goldman's upside case, the greater the shock will be among the banking system which is clearly underreserved for a mass default wave. To wit, just moments ago Wells admitted that it is among the most exposed banks to the energy sector: WELLS FARGO HAS $17 BIL OF OUTSTANDING ENERGY LOANS: CFO

"Markets Crash When They're Oversold" | Zero Hedge
Technology Destroying Jobs + While the big driver of the decline in economic growth since the 1980’s has been a structural change from a manufacturing based economy (high multiplier effect) to a service based one (low multiplier effect), it has been exacerbated by the increase in household debt to offset the reduction in wage growth to maintain the standard of living. This is shown clearly in the chart below. [...] In fact, each job created in energy-related areas has had a “ripple effect” of creating 2.8 jobs elsewhere in the economy from piping to coatings, trucking and transportation, restaurants and retail. Simply put, lower oil and gasoline prices may have a bigger detraction on the economy than the “savings” provided to consumers.

I predicted the second quarter of 2015 had to be peak mega round. Turns out, I was three months off. But now it’s official: The shit is hitting the fan. [...] In the third quarter, venture funding hit dot com funding levels with 2008 deals and $38.7 billion raised.

Osborne warns of 'dangerous cocktail' of economic risks - BBC News
[ repeat phrases - "strong economy", "strong economy, strong NHS" ] The UK faces a "cocktail" of serious threats from a slowing global economy as 2016 begins, Chancellor George Osborne has warned. Speaking in Cardiff, Mr Osborne said this year is likely to be one of the toughest since the financial crisis. He told business leaders that far from "mission accomplished" on the economy, "2016 is the year of mission critical". His message is in stark contrast to the positive tone of his Autumn Statement, when he said the UK was "growing fast". [...] that the Autumn Statement had put in place a four-year plan to restore the UK's public finances, and make the economy more productive, with businesses more competitive so they could create jobs. [...] Mr Osborne told the Today programme the UK's economic recovery was not "a debt-fuelled recovery", citing the support of the governor of the Bank of England in his assessment.

A glut of crude politics - BBC News
It turns out US unconventional oil and gas production is more resilient, at a lower price, than the Saudis and others had predicted. Break-even for the new Texas and Dakota wells is higher than current prices (US West Texas Intermediate is below $37.50). So there is some expectation that supply from that American source will fall away in the next few months, as fracked wells lose pressure. But given the technology, it takes not much time to crank it back up again - once the price rises. [...] But the word from Oil and Gas UK is that there is now a "sustained fear" that prices will stay low for a long time. One of the trade body's senior managers told BBC radio on Wednesday that fields are losing money at current prices, and some aren't even covering their production costs. The consequence, says, Mike Tholen, will be fewer fields producing by the end of 2016. And with exploration all but dried up, there won't be fields to replace them. //&! bbc.in/1O0Rj4d

Record oil glut stands at 3bn barrels - BBC News
Although lower oil prices will lead to a decline in US production next year, the IEA said it would take months to clear the glut. "This massive cushion has inflated even as the global oil market adjusts to $50 per barrel. Demand growth has risen to a five-year high of nearly two million barrels per day," the agency said. "Gains in demand have been outpaced by vigorous production from OPEC and resilient non-OPEC supply." Growth in global demand for oil is expected to fall in 2016 as the allure of lower prices fades, the IEA added. //&! bbc.in/1HH3VL1 - So as China goes through what's being called the "new normal", it's likely that commodity producers are going to have to accept the same fate for themselves too.

TTIP bringt Rekordzahl von Gegnern auf die Straße
&! http://www.internet-law.de/2015/10/noch-ein-paar-allgemeine-gedanken-zu-ttip.html - TTIP hat aber noch eine ganz andere Dimension. Es verfestigt den Ansatz der westlichen Welt als Closed Shop. Damit wird die Kluft gegenüber Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländern verstärkt, die nicht nur bei diesem Abkommen außen vor bleiben. Das ist gerade angesichts der aktuellen „Flüchtlingskrise“ ein Ansatz den man überdenken sollte. Wer Fluchtursachen bekämpfen und die Situation in den Heimatländern der Flüchtlinge verbessern will, kann nicht gleichzeitig Abkommen wie TTIP befürworten. Vielmehr müssen wir den Blick auf eine gerechtere Weltordnung richten und genau dafür steht TTIP nicht.

Profit mean reversion and recession | Credit Writedowns
We are now in the seventh year of a cyclical recovery and bull market. Shares have tripled in that time frame. I would say this means we are much closer to the end of the business cycle than the beginning. Moreover, as Jeremy Grantham is quoted in the Business Insider piece, profits are mean-reverting and right now they are reverting from a phase that is “wildly optimistic” according to Warren Buffett. All of this is taking place against the backdrop of an economy in which wage growth is weak, household debt is still relatively high on a historic basis as a percentage of income and we have no policy room on the monetary side, with limited political appetite for policy on the fiscal side. To me, the pre-conditions for this profits recession speak to downside risk, ....

More maternity units closing doors, union warns - BBC News
The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) said a shortage of midwives was having a major impact and mistakes would "almost certainly be made". Some 42% of units shut down temporarily in the past year, its survey found. The government said it was determined to ensure "every mother and baby gets the highest quality care". A poll of 83 heads of midwifery at NHS trusts found there had been a rise in the number of units that had closed their doors, with 33% having closed the previous year. The RCM said budget cuts were also affecting services, with midwives struggling to cope with a rising birth rate and increasingly complex births. [...] But he added that rising numbers of complex pregnancies were also putting pressure on other UK countries. [...] The RCM says there is a shortage of 2,600 full-time midwives.
