George Osborne warns of further spending cuts in Budget - BBC News
[ LOL! ] But recent figures showing the UK economy was smaller than expected meant savings must be found in his Budget statement on 17 March, he said. [...] Mr Osborne said he would rather look for extra cuts now than risk breaking his own manifesto commitment to achieve a surplus in the budget by the end of this Parliament. The chancellor did not completely rule out raising taxes in the event of a further slowdown in growth, but said that now was not the time for "significant" tax hikes. [...] I'm absolutely clear we've got to root our country in the principle that we live within our means and that we have economic security." [...] "whole purpose of our economic plan was to have a budget surplus. [...] we got big challenges at home to make the economy more productive even as more people get work. [ because having part of your budget in the property bubble is so productive ] [...] I will do what is required to keep our country safe and secure." [ NOT CHANGING PLANS ie U-TURN ]

Frankreich verliert Status als Deutschlands wichtigstes Exportland - SPIEGEL ONLINE
IMF rechnet für 2015 mit einem Anstieg des BIP US um 2,5 Prozent und für 2016 mit 3 Prozent. "Wir sehen zudem eine Reindustrialisierung in den USA: Dort werden wegen der niedrigen Energiekosten viele neue Fabriken und Produktionsstätten hochgezogen", sagte Treier. "Dafür werden Maschinen und Ausrüstungen aus deutscher Produktion benötigt." Hilfreich sei zudem der schwächelnde Euro, [...] "Die Amerikaner sind relativ preissensible Käufer, auch wenn es um Luxusprodukte wie deutsche Autos geht", // Germany & UK are energy dependent, especially after Desert Storm Energy project failed. UK need the bet on STEM and digital economy and knowledge economy, added value services that can be exported & leverage "British" brand. It can not compete against cheap energy fuelled China and USA! But it did nothing, UK has to even import Nurses and Doctors now! Thanks to short-sighted ideological dogmatic austerity & policy for established businesses. low corp tax & deregulation to compete w price only.

Wirtschaftskrise: Deutsche Wirtschaft mit starkem Export ist anfällig - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Typischerweise produzieren dominante ökonomische Narrative zuerst Illusionen und dann große Probleme.

BBC News - When will the UK pay its way in the world?
In absolute terms it has been impossible for UK debts to fall. >> Now what was a little worrying was that the deficit on the current account reached 5.6% of GDP, or economic output, in the third quarter of 2013 and fell to just a little bit lower, 5.4%, in the fourth quarter. That 5.6% was - ahem - something of a milestone: it was the biggest quarterly deficit since records began in 1955. And it explains why the record aggregate indebtedness of the UK has been falling so slowly, and is still not much below 500% of GDP on the Mckinsey measure (though see my previous blog). [...] UK's - limp trading performance - for YEARS! ... COMPETING against BRICs, Europe, G8, ... now and in the future competing with MINT countries too ( ). [...] "We have not got forever to reconstruct our economy and become a bit more like the European export emperor, Germany."

Chinas Rare Earth Embargo Changes Incentive for Toxic Work -
China currently controls almost all of the world’s supply of rare earths, for which demand is soaring.

the undeclared embargo looked like a pure power play - with little regard for the conventions of international trade. The export quotas China continues to impose on rare earths,

From the Chinese perspective, though, the issue looks very different.

China feels entitled to call the shots because of a brutally simple environmental reckoning: It currently controls most of the globe’s rare earths supply not just because of geologic good fortune, although there is some of that, but because the country has been willing to do dirty, toxic and often radioactive work that the rest of the world has long shunned.

Despite producing 95 percent of the world’s rare earths, China has only 37 percent of the world’s proven reserves. Sizable deposits are known to exist in the United States, Canada, Australia, India and Brazil, among other places.

Boomland Brasilien: Die neue Weltmacht wackelt - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Brasiliens Boom wird oft dem seit acht Jahren amtierenden Präsidenten Lula zugerechnet, dessen zweite Amtszeit nun zu Ende geht und der nicht wiedergewählt werden kann. Dabei hat nicht er die Grundlagen geschaffen, sondern sein Vorgänger Henrique Cardoso.

Er besiegte die Hyperinflation. Er sanierte den Haushalt. Er entwarf eines der weltweit größten Sozialprogramme, um Millionen Menschen aus der Armut zu befreien. Die Ernte dieser Saat fuhr Lula ein. Heute ist Cardoso einer der letzten Politiker, die den Präsidenten noch kritisieren. "Lula hat das Land betäubt", sagte er kürzlich. Brasilien befinde sich auf dem Weg in den Staatskapitalismus.

Doch nur wenige wollen solche Sätze hören. Vier von fünf Brasilianern unterstützen Lula, der sein Amt zum 1. Januar 2011 abgibt. Seine wahrscheinliche Nachfolgerin Dilma Rousseff, die an diesem Sonntag aller Voraussicht nach gewählt wird, wäre ohne Lulas Unterstützung chancenlos gewesen.

G-20 Clash Over Recovery Risks ’Sub-Potential’ Growth (Update1) -
At a meeting of Group of 20 finance chiefs in Busan, South Korea, June 4-5, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said the world cannot again bank on the cash-strapped U.S. consumer to drive growth and urged other nations to stimulate their own demand. European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet said fiscal tightening in “old industrialized economies” would aid the expansion by shoring up investor confidence.

Each strategy carries threats for the global rebound that the G-20 said faces “significant challenges.” Continued stimulus risks bondholder revolt over rising debt burdens, while spending cutbacks could worsen unemployment. Relying on exports leaves the world prone to trade wars and competitive currency devaluations as countries seek to give their companies an edge.

Kolumne: Fricke - Und jetzt mal Deutschland |
Seit ein paar Tagen gibt es leichte Unruhe an den Finanzmärkten. Die große Steuerreform, die Angela Merkels angeschlagene schwarz-gelbe Regierung fürs Wahljahr noch durchgeboxt hat, brockt dem Finanzminister größere Einnahmeausfälle ein als vermutet. Kurz danach meldet das Statistikamt, das Staatsdefizit habe nach Revision 2012 doch über vier Prozent des Bruttoinlandsprodukts gelegen. Ein kleiner Schock.
Die Kanzlerin gibt sich gelassen. Das werde durch die gute Konjunktur wettgemacht. Experten sagen, Deutschland sei noch gut aufgestellt. Am nächsten Tag heißt es, das Geschäftsklima habe sich eingetrübt. Aktien geben nach, der Zins auf deutsche Staatsanleihen steigt.

A special report on America's economy: Export or die | The Economist
The notion that exports can lead American growth strikes many, especially on the left, as fanciful. They point out that America’s manufacturing base has been cut down by years of competition from China and other lower-cost countries. Even if the economic climate improves, America may not benefit: it simply does not make the products the rest of the world wants to buy. Flat-screen televisions and mobile phones are made in Asia. “There are just too many products that we no longer make and too many foreign links in the industrial supply chain,” Robert Kuttner recently wrote in the American Prospect.
