first_img WHAT passes for moderate these days when it comes to banking reform is in fact pretty radical. Yesterday’s interim paper from Sir John Vickers’ Independent Commission on Banking (ICB), if it is implemented, will trigger vast changes to the way UK banks operate – but it reads as a surprisingly sensible and balanced piece of work. There was quite a lot of good stuff in it, especially the measures to try and protect taxpayers and to facilitate orderly wind-downs of failed banks – and also several problems and inconsistencies, some fence-sitting, an occasional lack of precision and other issues. While the ICB wants Lloyds to sell more branches than the 600 previously agreed, it doesn’t say how many; and it fails to adequately define the boundaries between retail and other kinds of banking, making it hard to quantify what the cost would be of holding more capital against UK retail subsidiaries. Its account of the crisis is way too unidimensional, though that was probably because of the report’s limited remit rather than any genuine lack of understanding.On balance, however, the ICB’s proposals would make the banking system more resilient, reduce the risk to taxpayers and won’t, on their own, trigger an exodus of large banks from the City. I have to say that this comes as a relief: radical reform of financial regulation is needed, but it needs to be of the right kind. As recently as a few months ago, it looked as if the ICB was going down the wrong route – so it is good news that it isn’t. Its discussion of co-cos, bail-in bonds, the need for bondholders to bear losses and the role of new bankruptcy procedures, including those already agreed in the 2009 Banking Act, are instructive. But there are some problems. It is absolutely right to want to improve competition in the retail banking market. But not all of its suggestions are sensible. Moving to full bank account portability is a great idea – it has become easier to switch mobile phone provider ever since customers were able to keep their numbers. The same would be true with bank accounts. The ICB is also right that elevated levels of regulation and capital requirements serve as barriers to entry; it is also clear that much of the extra competition before the crisis was actually unsustainable and created by liquidity-rich, high risk forms of lending (such as those practised by Icelandic banks). However, the idea that new banks could use other firms’ branches, mooted yesterday, would dilute property rights too much. The ICB’s view that Lloyds should sell more branches is short-sighted: no business will ever trust a deal with the British government again. Lloyds TSB had Gordon Brown’s backing to rescue HBOS; it had been explicitly agreed that competition rules would be waived. The ICB estimates that the implicit subsidy to large banks thanks to the government’s bail-out guarantee is worth more than £10bn a year. There are no cash transfers from taxpayers – but banks can borrow at a cheaper cost and have an incentive to take more risk. The remedy is to create a ring-fenced subsidiary for UK retail operations with more capital and to introduce living wills and specially tailored bankruptcy procedures. In the event of a problem, the government could rescue the retail operation while allowing the rest of the bank to go bust. The ICB wants to increase the amount of capital held by retail banking subsidiaries from seven per cent to 10 per cent. Banks could withstand a five per cent drop in the value of their assets, rather than 3.5 per cent. But this reform has an unintended consequence: it guarantees even more firmly than before banks’ retail operations. So the implicit subsidy remains, albeit on a smaller scale, and retail units have an incentive to take more risk. This is silly. It would have made sense at least to consider Europe Economics’ Andrew Lilico’s idea that banks could be made to offer special, 100 per cent gilt-backed, fully secure storage accounts in addition to their regular fractional reserve accounts. Consumers would be able to chose to put their savings in either the storage accounts, which would be backed by the state, or in ordinary bank accounts, which would not be. Crucially, the ICB’s proposals are clearly designed to ensure that banks would not be better off if they moved their HQ abroad. Anybody operating a retail bank in the UK would have to hold more capital, wherever they are based. This report is hardly perfect – but it certainly won’t kill the [email protected] me on Twitter: @allisterheath Some good ideas, some silly ones – but no disasters KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼ whatsappcenter_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Monday 11 April 2011 8:52 pmlast_img read more

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Looking to load your Stocks & Shares ISA with dividend heroes? I’d be very happy to buy shares in Bank of Georgia Group (LSE: BGEO) today, in anticipation of some bright newsflow that could drive the share price higher.The bank’s preliminary results on scheduled for Thursday, 13 February. The financial giant certainly impressed the market with news in November that pre-tax profits (excluding one-off costs) soared more than 30% in quarter three. I’m expecting news of a solid end to the year next week, and a bright outlook for 2020 too.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…On the marchThe eggheads at the ISET Policy Institute in Tbilisi estimate Georgian real GDP expanded by 5.3% in the fourth quarter. The World Bank expects the country’s economy to swell a further 4.3% for 2020. Rises of 4.5% are also predicted for 2021 and 2022.Compare that with the mediocre economic conditions the likes of Lloyds and Barclays have to tolerate today. The Bank of England expects UK GDP to edge just 0.8% higher this year. And sub-2% rises are expected in the following two years.Bank of Georgia is making the most of this fertile environment by developing its position in the high-growth digital banking arena too. And investors can be increasingly confident of the firm’s robustness following recent regulatory action intended to improve the quality of its loan portfolio.Great growth, big dividendsIt’s not a shock to see City analysts forecasting breakneck profits growth over the next couple of years then. A 12% bottom-line rise is predicted for 2020 and a further 13% advance has also been pencilled in for next year.These forecasts provide plenty more to cheer. Firstly, they leave Bank of Georgia trading on a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of 5.6 times, a shockingly-cheap reading, in my opinion, given its bright medium-to-long-term opportunities. And secondly, they lead brokers to tip some monster dividend increases too.A full-year reward of 337 Georgian lari per share reward is expected for 2020. A chunky 404-lari payout is also anticipated for 2021. And, consequently, the FTSE 250 firm rocks up with market-mashing yields of 6% and 7.2% for this year and next respectively. Compare this with the 3% forward average which UK mid-caps currently offer up.Stay away!The yields over at some of the FTSE 100 banking giants get much closer to those of Bank of Georgia. In fact, Lloyds offers an even-better yield of 6.2% for 2020. Meanwhile, Barclays boasts a reading of 5.6%.But I wouldn’t touch either of these two shares with a bargepole. Bank of Georgia isn’t without risk, sure, with rising inflation posing a particularly big problem. However, these UK-focussed banks are enduring a steady flow of rising bad loans and revenues pressure. And their troubles look set to last through 2020, and possibly well into the next decade, as Brexit plays out and competition mounts.

If you’re looking for cheap FTSE 100 shares, you have no shortage of options at the moment. After the recent stock market crash, many stocks are trading well below their 2020 highs.Here’s a look at three cheap stocks I like the look of right now.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 100 healthcare giantOne FTSE 100 stock that I believe offers a lot of value at present is GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). It’s currently trading on a trailing P/E ratio of about 13.What I like about GSK is that its areas of focus – pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and consumer healthcare products – are particularly relevant right now. Not only is the whole world waiting for a Covid-19 vaccine to appear (GSK has partnered with Sanofi to develop one), but demand for flu medication and painkillers is also on the rise due to the coronavirus.Another thing I like about Glaxo is that it has defensive qualities. Even in a recession, people still need medication. That’s an advantage in the current environment.GSK recently issued an excellent set of Q1 results. For the quarter, turnover was up 19% and adjusted earnings per share were up 26%. The company declared a dividend of 19p per share.All in all, I think GSK looks attractive right now.Government-backed revenuesAnother FTSE 100 stock I like at the moment is defence specialist BAE Systems (LSE: BAE). Its share price has fallen from around 670p in February to just over 500p today. On last year’s earnings, that puts the stock on a trailing P/E of about 11.BAE Systems isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea. However, there are a number of things I like about the company. For starters, its revenues are essentially backed by the government due to the fact it’s a key supplier to the UK Ministry of Defence and the US Department of Defense. And with geopolitical tension across the world remaining elevated, government spending on defence should remain robust in the years ahead.Secondly, the group has been branching out into high-growth areas in recent years, including cybersecurity and anti-money laundering services. This provides a growth angle.BAE recently said it had seen no material impact on the financial performance of the group in Q1. It also advised it has a strong liquidity position.All things considered, I think the stock has significant appeal right now.Long-term growth storyFinally, I also like the look of financial services group Prudential (LSE: PRU). It was trading near 1,500p in February. Yet today, the stock can be picked up under 1,100p.The reason I like Prudential is that it is now predominantly focused on the savings and insurance needs of those in Asia. Given that wealth across Asia is rising at a prolific rate, I see significant potential for growth here over the next decade.“I am confident that, with our clear focus on our structural growth markets and our continuing operational improvements, we will continue to deliver profitable growth for our investors and benefits for our stakeholders over the medium and long term,” said CEO Mike Wells recently.Unlike many other FTSE 100 firms, Prudential hasn’t cut its dividend yet. Last week, it said it will pay a second-half dividend of 20.84p per share to UK shareholders on 15 May.Overall, I see Prudential as a high-quality company.

first_img14 de julio – Con pistola en la cabeza, los dirigentes de Syriza encabezados por Alexis Tsipras, han cedido ante los poderes financieros de Europa encabezados por los banqueros alemanes. Los términos del acuerdo dictan dificultades aún más graves para las masas griegas y una dominación absoluta de los bancos internacionales sobre Grecia.Este acuerdo reemplaza el “No” rotundo de las masas griegas a la austeridad en el referéndum del 5 de julio. El voto del 61 por ciento en contra de los banqueros mostró que existe una amplia base para una resistencia masiva.[Nota de traducción: A la fecha de escribir este artículo] El último acuerdo aún no ha sido aceptado por el Parlamento griego.Pero antes de la sumisión en Bruselas, Tsipras había arreglado forzar una aceptación general de cualquier acuerdo que firmara el Parlamento. Lo hizo en colaboración con los otros burgueses y partidos social demócratas griegos – los mismos que hicieron campaña por el voto de “sí” en el referéndum. Lo hizo sabiendo que parte de su propio partido se rebelaría.Los términos del acuerdo firmado por los 19 países de la zona euro requieren que Grecia acepte para el 18 de julio, una subida de impuestos, reducciones de pensiones y otras condiciones onerosas.El imperialismo alemán ha conseguido el respaldo de un fuerte bloque de países y la colaboración del gobierno capitalista francés para aplastar a Grecia y hacer un ejemplo del liderazgo Syriza. El Banco Central Europeo obligó a cerrar los bancos griegos cortando el flujo de fondos, amenazando con un caos financiero y estrangulación económica.Las masas en Grecia habían iniciado una rebelión electoral contra la austeridad bajo la dirección de Syriza y la agrupación de Tsipras. Esta rebelión interfirió con el proyecto de la Unión Europea de tener a los países más débiles de Europa en el férreo control de los poderes financieros en Berlín, París, Bruselas, Amsterdam y otros. Este proyecto ha estado en marcha desde el colapso de la URSS y Europa del Este.La dirigencia socialdemócrata Tsipras no estaba preparada para realizar la rebelión. Ahora, el objetivo de los poderes financieros es humillar y derrocar al gobierno y destruir a Tsipras frente a su propio pueblo como una lección para todos los demás que podrían rebelarse contra la austeridad exigida por las potencias europeas – y por el Fondo Monetario Internacional, encabezado por EUA.Términos de más austeridadLa “troika” – el FMI, el Banco Central Europeo y la Comisión Europea – y el gobierno griego, junto con los otros partidos burgueses griegos, han firmado términos que profundizarán la esclavitud de la deuda griega. Los siguientes son aspectos destacados del acuerdo firmado en Bruselas por los 19 países de la eurozona.El gobierno griego ha acordado someterse a la supervisión del FMI; permitir que una maquinaria supervisada active recortes automáticos del gasto si los excedentes presupuestarios quedan cortos; “ambiciosas reformas de las pensiones”, es decir, recortes a las/os pensionistas; a la “modernización de la negociación colectiva”, es decir menoscabar derechos sindicales; y reforma de la “acción industrial”, es decir, medidas contra el derecho de huelga.El acuerdo obliga al gobierno llevar a cabo “reformas del mercado de productos” que eliminan cualquier protección de precios de medicamentos con receta, leche y pan, entre otras cosas; proceder a la privatización de la red eléctrica nacional (ADMIE); transferir “activos griegos valiosos” a un “fondo independiente” (en Luxemburgo), que privatizaría los activos para pagar la deuda.No habrá reducción del principal, los cientos de miles de millones de euros contraídos con los bancos – no “recorte de pelo” – solamente una posible bajada de las tasas de interés y una posible extensión de los plazos de amortización. Pero no ha habido ningún compromiso en absoluto de cualquier alivio de la deuda.El gobierno debe presentar la legislación económica a la troika antes de que se presente al Parlamento o al público. Estos compromisos se requieren antes de que comiencen las negociaciones para un futuro rescate.Necesaria la resistencia de las masas Independientemente de si el gobierno cae, es necesario que haya un nuevo liderazgo de la resistencia en Grecia para movilizar la lucha de masas, tanto en el país como para ganar la solidaridad en toda Europa para rechazar este acuerdo antes de que se aplique plenamente. Una respuesta unida de las masas debe ser llamada inmediatamente para decir ¡No! – No a una mayor austeridad, no a pagar esta deuda ilegítima.Una reunión de emergencia podría ser convocada por las fuerzas progresistas y de izquierda griegas y representantes de las fábricas, comunidades, jubiladas/os, escuelas y universidades, y del campo, así como los pequeños negociantes, para formular un programa alternativo y un plan de agitación con resistencia constante de las masas para revocar el acuerdo.El objetivo debe ser el de obstaculizar la aplicación de las extremas medidas de austeridad dictadas por el capital financiero europeo, con Wall Street en el fondo, y acordado por el desventurado gobierno de Tsipras. La unidad más amplia posible de la resistencia se debe lograr en los próximos días.La primavera pasada el Parlamento griego liderado por Syriza autorizó un estudio realizado por el Comité Opuesto a la deuda. (Ver Workers World, “Comité de Deuda griega,” el 6 de julio). Aunque presentado dentro de un marco capitalista, los argumentos son la base legal para rechazar la deuda exorbitante a los banqueros. El informe proporciona evidencia de que la deuda es “ilegal, ilegítima y odiosa”.El informe concluye: “El Comité considera que Grecia ha sido y sigue siendo víctima de un ataque premeditado y organizado por el Fondo Monetario Internacional, el Banco Central Europeo y la Comisión Europea, dirigida exclusivamente a desplazar la deuda privada al sector público”.Romper con el euro vs esclavitud de la deuda Como recientemente hemos escrito en estas páginas, un compromiso por adelantado por los líderes Syriza de permanecer en la zona euro fue una señal clara a los banqueros que los financistas tenían la ventaja y recurrirían a la estrangulación financiera, que es exactamente lo que han hecho.Cualesquiera que sean las dificultades de romper con el euro para liberar a Grecia del control financiero absoluto de Frankfurt, el BCE, y el capital financiero alemán, europeo y estadounidense, deben ser enfrentadas. Los preparativos técnicos y el proceso de educación para explicar a las masas deberían haberse llevado a cabo hace mucho tiempo. Como muchas fuerzas de izquierda han señalado, es mejor que pasar por dificultades temporales que someterse a la esclavitud de una deuda y saqueo financiero permanente.Las fuerzas de izquierda en Syriza han llamado a salirse hace mucho tiempo. Incluso los economistas keynesianos burgueses Paul Krugman y Joseph Stiglitz han sugerido que Grecia estaría mejor si saliera del euro.Stathis Kouvelakis, miembro del Comité Central de Syriza y maestro en Londres, citó a Thanassis Petrakos, uno de los tres oradores del grupo parlamentario de Syriza y un destacado miembro de la Plataforma de Izquierda, que declaró:“El ‘no’ del referéndum fue radical y clasista. Algunos camaradas de alto rango insisten en una lógica de ‘no hay otra manera.’ Debemos prepararnos para salir de la zona euro y decir esto claramente al pueblo. La izquierda tiene un futuro cuando abra sus alas a lo desconocido, no a la nada. Aquellos que insisten en la opción de permanecer en el euro a cualquier precio podrían saber que es un desastre. Necesitamos una salida preparada para abrir un camino nuevo. Los primeros pasos son el control público de los bancos y del banco central griego y una ofensiva contra la oligarquía.” (Revista jacobino, 10 de julio)Sólo la izquierda y las fuerzas revolucionarias pueden preparar el camino hacia delante – la lucha para revocar el acuerdo y para romper con el euro. Bajo un nuevo liderazgo izquierdista podría haber una campaña masiva para superar el miedo a una ruptura.Las posibilidades de sobrevivir a una ruptura con el euro podrían ser ilustradas concretamente. Por ejemplo, podría redactarse planes para formar comités locales para asegurar el suministro de alimentos y llevar a cabo su distribución, sobre todo a las/os pobres. Estos comités también podrían estar facultados para suprimir el acaparamiento, monitorear a los capitalistas contra la especulación y el acaparamiento de beneficios, asegurar servicios médicos, etc.Cabe señalar que una nueva moneda soberana podría ser empleada para poner las masas de desempleadas/os, especialmente los jóvenes, de vuelta a trabajar; aumentar enormemente la producción; y superar la depresión en la que Grecia se encuentra ahora.Por supuesto, la nacionalización de la banca y de los sectores estratégicos de la economía serían pasos fundamentales para recuperar la soberanía sobre la economía.Tales medidas podrían ir acompañadas de negociaciones internacionales para establecer patrones de comercio alternativo en caso necesario, tanto de importación como de exportación. Esto sería en previsión de obstrucción comercial por la UE. Debería ser posible abrir conversaciones con todos los gobiernos que elogiaron el “No”. Los países de América Latina en la ALBA (Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América) vienen a la mente.El pasado abril, el embajador griego a Irán fue recibido por el presidente Hassan Rouhani. “En la reunión (el Presidente) dice que Grecia tiene muchas capacidades en diversos campos y la economía de Irán y Grecia pueden complementarse entre sí. “El embajador griego, a su vez, dijo: “Grecia busca lazos estratégicos con Irán y está en contra de la política de imposición de sanciones para aislar los países”. (Agencia de Noticias de Irán, 20 de abril)Tsipras recientemente hizo un viaje a Rusia para discutir un gasoducto, lo que también abre posibilidades de mantener comercio fuera del euro. Si fuera necesario, podrían establecerse relaciones de trueque temporales. Esta táctica fue utilizada con éxito por parte de Irán para evitar los efectos de las sanciones de EUA.En cualquier caso, la lógica de permanecer en el euro a toda costa ha transformado al gobierno Syriza de opositor de la austeridad, a ejecutor de la austeridad. Este ciclo debe romperse.Parásitos capitalistas vitoreanEn este momento los mercados de valores de todo el mundo van en aumento al propagarse la noticia de la firma del acuerdo de austeridad del gobierno griego. Los millonarios y multimillonarios que especulan con las acciones están babeándose al tener la sensación de que los bancos van a exprimir aún más la sangre de las masas griegas.Hay una celebración obscena en los círculos financieros sobre el ataque previsto por los bancos al pueblo griego – las/os trabajadores, pobres, jubiladas/os, las/os jóvenes. La oligarquía financiera mundial está a la espera de que la Troika apuntale los bancos griegos para que Grecia pueda pagar a los acreedores.Hay aquellos en la izquierda que consideran  la capitulación de Tsipras como inevitable y utilizan esto como una razón para abstenerse de la lucha. En particular, el Partido Comunista Griego retuvo a su amplio seguimiento entre los sectores militantes con conciencia de clase de la clase obrera organizada, de unirse con las fuerzas anti-austeridad más amplias leales a Syriza en una lucha común contra la Troika. Por lo tanto, desperdiciaron la oportunidad de conducir al movimiento más amplio hacia una dirección de izquierda y revolucionaria, que podría haber ayudado a evitar una capitulación, o para prepararse para ella cuando llegó.Esperamos que los sucesos actuales hagan a todas las fuerzas de izquierda repensar y reagruparse para la lucha más amplia y unida posible para revocar esta última capitulación ante las exigencias de austeridad de los poderes financieros.Las sonrisas pueden todavía borrarse de las caras de los parásitos financieros y las bolsas de valores del mundo capitalista, si un poderoso movimiento de masas monta un contraataque. Ha llegado el momento de superar las diferencias y lanzar una lucha que sacudirá la Merkel, Hollande y todos los banqueros de Europa y EUA.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Reporters Without Borders voiced relief on learning that blogger and website editor Kamran Mir Hazar was freed yesterday after being held for nine hours and interrogated by the National Directorate of Security (NDS). “Hazar’s arrest was arbitrary and illegal,” the press freedom organisation said. “We are relieved about his release but we condemn the methods used by the Afghan authorities, who told him the detention centre where he was being held was the ‘Guantanamo’ of the Afghan secret services.”While held, Hazar was kept handcuffed and was questioned about the articles and interviews he posts online. He was threatened with being arrested again if he criticised the government in his articles. RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrest of journalist and blogger Kamran Mir Hazar, the editor of the kabulpress.org website, for the second time in just over a month. As he left his office today in the company of some colleagues, he was arrested by four men waiting outside.

Both, Mohammad Asif Nang, the editor of the government magazine Peace Jirga, and Kamran Mir Hazar, the editor of the kabulpress.org website, had been critical of the government.“Their detention is illegal,” the press freedom organisation said. “The intelligence agencies have not said what they are charged with. They should be released at once.”Asif Nang, who is also the parliamentary affairs ministry spokesman, was arrested on 1 July. It is thought he is being held for publishing an extract from a Canadian essay critical of President Hami Karzai and not, as initially reported, for suspected spying. Entitled “Wars and globalization: Who did 9/11 benefit?” the essay portrayed Karzai as a US puppet.Hazar’s arrest on 4 July was apparently prompted by posts on his website (which claims to let Internet users express themselves “without censorship”) accusing senior Afghan officials of being spies. He also works for radio Salam Watandar.
