Úgy tűnik, a németek nem csak a Gazprom európai terjeszkedésénél segédkeztek oly’ készségesen.

Azért megvan annak a maga bája, hogy az itthon sokat sztárolt Sikorski hozta össze -állítólag- a Jobb Szektort, amerikai kérésre, segítséggel.

Ohohohohoho.

Further measures of assistance to set European records

Greek Debt Grows as Samaras Looks to Creditors for Relief

Greek state debt surged to a euro-era record last year, underscoring the urgency of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’s push to lower the cost of the government’s bailout loans.

The country’s debt pile reached 175.1 percent of gross domestic product in 2013, up from 157.2 percent a year earlier, the EU’s statistics office in Luxembourg said today. For the euro zone as a whole, state debt rose to a record 92.6 percent of GDP from 90.7 percent.

“The surge in public indebtedness since Greece’s fiscal crisis erupted in 2009 is staggering,” said Nicholas Spiro, managing director of Spiro Sovereign Strategy in London. “The fact that, technically speaking, it’s still debatable whether Greece is solvent says much about the management of its crisis.”

While Greece has the highest debt-to-GDP ratio in the 18-nation single-currency bloc, Samaras may get some welcome news later today, when the European Commission decides if his government posted a primary budget surplus in 2013.

Greece’s euro-area partners said in November 2012 that when the government in Athens registers a primary surplus, which excludes borrowing costs, they will “consider further measures and assistance” to help Greece meet the targets set out in its rescue-aid agreement, which foresees a debt-to-GDP ratio “substantially lower” than 110 percent in 2022.

+17.9% in one year. Further measures of assistance. Substantially lower than 110 percent.

The Dalai Lama: Not that many divisions

Norway’s Politicians Shun Dalai Lama Seeking Detente With China

Norway’s ruling politicians may refuse to meet with the Dalai Lama when he visits Oslo next month to avoid angering China.

The hesitation is part of an effort to ease tensions with the world’s second-largest economy that have festered since Norway’s Nobel committee awarded jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo the Peace Prize in 2010.

We need to focus on our relationship with China and should remember that should the Norwegian government meet the Dalai Lama it could become difficult to normalize our relationship with China,” Foreign Minister Boerge Brende said today to reporters in parliament after a debate on the issue. The government has yet to make a final decision on the matter, he said.

Olemic Thommessen, the speaker of the parliament, said yesterday he will avoid meeting with the 78-year-old religious leader, who is visiting at the invitation of the Nobel Institute to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his own Peace Prize.

“What I want to achieve is to contribute to improving the relationship with China,” the speaker said in a televised interview yesterday with broadcaster NRK. “It’s at a freezing point today. Since 2010, Norway has had no political communication with China.”

China in 2010 broke off high-level contacts with Norway after the Peace Prize was awarded to the dissident. The dispute has also strained trade relations between the two countries, disrupting salmon exports from the Nordic country.

The government has maintained that it has no power over the Nobel Committee’s decisions in awarding the Peace Prize. The prize is handed out by a committee appointed by parliament and headed by former Prime Minister Thorbjoern Jagland.

The religious leader earlier this year met with U.S. President Barack Obama even as the Chinese government lodged a formal diplomatic protest, saying the meeting would undermine U.S.-China relations.

Thommessen, who was previously head of the parliament’s Tibet committee, said not meeting with the Dalai Lama is the “responsible” thing to do.

“It’s a question of bringing us out of a difficult path to improve our possibilities to work precisely for those values that we care about, not least human rights,” he said.”

ha egy csomó lengyel kimegy külföldre, akkor ott milyen mobilis a munkaerő,

szopiszuri:

szopiszuri:

ha egy csomó magyar, az exodus.

Amiben Bajnai Gordon és Vona Gábor egyetért az az, hogy a “magyar fiatalokat haza kell hozni.” Mégis miafasznak? Majd hazajön, ha akar.

de komolyan 20 évig ment a sírás, hogy még borsodból se hajlandók győrbe költözni az emberek, mert nem mobil a munkaerő. hát most már mobil, azt mi a fasz van akkor?

Mert most nem a borsodbodobácsi és harákleppentyői munkaerő lett mobil, hanem a Mi Kislányunk, a Jóska, Aki Tíz Éve Még Megjavította a Számítógépünket És Felrakta a Windowst, Alíz az Irodából és Teri a Szomszédból.

Az egyik strukturális reform, a másik alávaló népnyúzás.

Slaves of the Internet, Unite!

In fairness, most of the people who ask me to write things for free, with the exception of Arianna Huffington, aren’t the Man; they’re editors of struggling magazines or sites, or school administrators who are probably telling me the truth about their budgets. The economy is still largely in ruins, thanks to the people who “drive the economy” by doing imaginary things on Wall Street, and there just isn’t much money left to spare for people who do actual things anymore.

This is partly a side effect of our information economy, in which “paying for things” is a quaint, discredited old 20th-century custom, like calling people after having sex with them. The first time I ever heard the word “content” used in its current context, I understood that all my artist friends and I — henceforth, “content providers” — were essentially extinct. This contemptuous coinage is predicated on the assumption that it’s the delivery system that matters, relegating what used to be called “art” — writing, music, film, photography, illustration — to the status of filler, stuff to stick between banner ads.

My field of expertise is complaining, not answers. I know there’s no point in demanding that businesspeople pay artists for their work, any more than there is in politely asking stink bugs or rhinoviruses to quit it already. It’s their job to be rapacious and shameless. But they can get away with paying nothing only for the same reason so many sleazy guys keep trying to pick up women by insulting them: because it keeps working on someone. There is a bottomless supply of ambitious young artists in all media who believe the line about exposure, or who are simply so thrilled at the prospect of publication that they’re happy to do it free of charge.”

Ki a legszakértőbb?

Szakértő az nagyon sok van akár a Tumbleren is, és aztán még pl. Király Júlia, Bajnai Gordon, Petschnig Mária Zita, Oszkó Péter meg Ész Lajos, de kell lennie valakinek, aki mindenki másnál nagyobb szakértő, aki mindennél jobban érti a piacosodást és a struktúrákat, és aki a legnagyobb alak kerek e közgazdászszakmában. Ezen gondolkodtam ma kávé után.

Az egyik oldalon ott áll Nyers Rezső, az Új Gazdasági Mechanizmus atyja, tudós és államférfi, akinek a piaci reformokat köszönhetjük. Nyers Rezső mindent megreformált, ami még nem volt megreformálva (és akkoriban nagyon sok dolog nem volt), és soha egy percre sem jött ki a szakszerű álláspontjából. Kifejlesztettük a bélszínrolót, a traubiszódát és az üveges meggybefőttet, minket irigyelt egy csomó ma már nem is létező ország, és olyan piaci mechanizmusokat építettünk, amelyek a reformellenes, vonalas erők támadásai és gáncsoskodásai dacára előkészítették a terepet az újabb és újabb reformok előtt. Vagyis ő inkább már csak a részleteket hagyta ránk, mert a nagy egész meg volt már rendesen alkotva ahogy kell. Nyers Rezső maga a szervezett, tervszerű innovativitás.

A másik oldalon viszont ott áll Fekete János, aki megteremtette a modern bankokat, felügyelte a devizagazdálkodást, ajánlására meghívót kaptunk nagyon fontos szakértői szervezetekbe, akiktől sorban kaptuk a dícséreteket és jó pontokat, és titkon minden piaci reformer minket irigyelt. Magyarország egyenesen éllovas nemzet volt a felelősségteljes lazításban és átmenetben, miközben a lusta lengyelek és a középszerű csehszlovákok duzzogva figyelték a példánkat. Fekete János olyan volt, mint egy megtestesült HVG-elemzés: szakszerű, tárgyilagos, fáradhatatlan, és mindig felhívta a figyelmet a fontosabb struktúrákra és összefüggésekre.Fekete János maga a szakszerű demokrácia.

Fekete János ugyan meghalt 2009-ben, de a szelleme (és a HVG) természetesen örökké él. Nyers Rezső meg egyenesen azt az elvet demonstrálja, hogy az igazi szakértők nem is halnak meg soha.

Eddig jutottam.

The Richest Man In Asia Is Selling Everything In China

Here’s a guy you want to bet on– Li Ka-Shing.

Li is reportedly the richest person in Asia with a net worth well in excess of $30 billion, much of which he made being a shrewd property investor.

Li Ka-Shing was investing in mainland China back in the early 90s, way back before it became the trendy thing to do. Now, Li wants out of China. All of it.

Since August of last year, he’s dumped billions of dollars worth of his Chinese holdings. The latest is the $928 million sale of the Pacific Place shopping center in Beijing– this deal was inked just days ago.

Once the deal concludes, Li will no longer have any major property investments in mainland China.

This isn’t a person who became wealthy by being flippant and scared. So what does he see that nobody else seems to be paying much attention to?

Simple. China’s credit crunch.

After years of unprecedented monetary expansion that has put the economy in a precarious state, the Chinese government has been desperately trying to reign in credit growth.

The shadow banking system alone is now worth 84% of GDP according to an estimate by JP Morgan. The IMF pegs total private credit at 230% of GDP, jumping by 100% in the last few years.

Historically, growth rates of these proportions have nearly always been followed by severe financial crises. And Chinese leaders are doing their best to engineer a ‘soft landing’.

If they’re successful, the world will only see major drops in global growth, stocks, property, and commodity prices.

If they fail, the spillover could become pandemic.
