President Nicolas Maduro under international pressure for jailing opposition figures

By Guy Taylor - The Washington Times - Thursday, December 25, 2014

The ongoing plunge in global oil prices is pushing Venezuela toward economic collapse just as President Nicolas Maduro — the hand-picked successor to the late socialist Hugo Chavez — faces mounting international criticism for jailing opposition figures after months of street protests.

Where Chavez once drew praise from the world’s leftist elite for using the high price of crude oil during the 2000s to underwrite a socialist revolution, a growing number of analysts in Washington say Mr. Maduro is clinging to power in a country on the edge of becoming a failed state.

Venezuela still boasts some of the world’s largest known crude reserves, but it has continued for too long spending more on government programs than it has collected in oil revenue, analysts say. The average price of oil has dropped from more than $100 a barrel to less than $60 during recent weeks, only adding to Venezuela’s woes.


Simply put, the “current situation in Venezuela is unsustainable if the price continues to fall,” said Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue, a policy research group in Washington. “You can debate what a failed state is and what it looks like, but Venezuela can’t continue like this.”

Others offer an even more stark assessment. “There are parts of Venezuela where the state is already failed,” said Adam Isacson, a senior associate at the Washington Office on Latin America. He said there is “complete lawlessness” along several Venezuelan border zones, and in certain “Caracas slums where you’ve had shootouts between pro-Chavez militias and police.”

Although national security analysts are debating what the Obama administration might be able to do to positively affect the situation, Mr. Isacson said, Washington should, at a minimum, be wary of the security implications at play for the region and the world.

Venezuela is “not an area that you want ungoverned because of the way organized crime could use it as a base,” he said, pointing to a United Nations estimate that at least 200 tons of cocaine cross through the nation en route to Europe and the U.S. each year.

But such realities are largely in the backdrop of more pressing domestic political turmoil that has gripped Venezuela since Chavez died of cancer in March 2013.

While reviled as a dictator by American conservatives and free market advocates in many parts of the world, Chavez carried a glorified status among his supporters during his 14-year rule. He built a cult of personality with followers — the “Chavistas” — who hailed him and his social programs for lifting millions of Venezuelans out of poverty.

At the same time, the nation struggled to overcome basic problems. On Chavez’s death, The Associated Press noted that, as a whole, Venezuelans were afflicted by chronic power outages, crumbling infrastructure, unfinished public works projects, double-digit inflation, food and medicine shortages, rampant crime and one of the world’s highest homicide and kidnapping rates.

Mr. Maduro won a razor-thin victory in a special election a month after Chavez’s death. But the nation’s opposition, famously wealthy and notoriously fractured during the Chavez’s reign, was determined to make a stand. Refusing to recognize the Maduro victory, several opposition leaders called for massive rallies in Caracas under the message that Chavez had spent years squandering the nation’s oil wealth and putting it on a path to financial ruin.

At first, it appeared Mr. Maduro might be able to weather the political storm. But Chavez left huge shoes to fill and demonstrations in Caracas soon spiraled out of control, resulting in the deaths of at least 43 people, including anti-Maduro demonstrators, his supporters and security officials.

The new president then began drawing the ire of international human rights groups by cracking down on the opposition. In February, his government arrested Leopoldo Lopez Mendoza, who had run for president against Mr. Maduro. The 43-year-old Harvard graduate remains in jail on charges of arson, terrorism and homicide.

More recently, the government indicted longtime anti-Chavez activist Maria Corina Machado, charging the former member of the Venezuelan parliament with conspiracy in connection with a suspected plot to kill Mr. Maduro.

Analysts say Mr. Maduro is acting out of desperation to send a threatening message to an opposition eager to seize on his own plummeting approval ratings. Polls put his approval ratings as low 24 percent amid reports that the Venezuelan has no serious strategy for tackling the nation’s more than 63 percent inflation rate and widespread shortages of consumer goods such as diapers, milk and laundry detergent.

The Obama administration’s strategy appeared until recently to be watching the unraveling while nursing a long-delicate balance in which the U.S. buys a small but steady stream of crude oil from Venezuela.

Analysts say President Obama has few strategic options to pursue without triggering a diplomatic confrontation with Caracas because serious criticism or policy shifts from Washington are likely to be seized by Mr. Maduro only as an example of U.S. bullying.

Chavez had a history of boosting his own popularity in the nation and in much of the Latin America by lambasting what he described as subversive U.S. imperialism toward the region.
However, the Maduro government’s jailing of Mr. Lopez and leveling of charges against Ms. Machado appear to have changed things.

Last week, Mr. Obama signed legislation to impose sanctions that could block visas and U.S. market access to Venezuelan officials accused of violating protesters’ rights during the anti-Maduro demonstrations this year.

It remains unclear whether the administration will name any Venezuelan officials with the sanctions. “These are sanctions that don’t have a lot of teeth and are not going to affect a lot of people,” said Mr. Shifter, who believes Mr. Obama support can at least partly be explained by politics.

The president, Mr. Shifter said, has effectively created political cover against criticism from human rights activists for pursing a historic detente this month with Cuba — another leftist bastion in Latin American and longtime ally to Venezuela. “It’s an astute play on Obama’s part to show that he does care about human rights while he’s moving to normalize relations with Cuba,” he said. “It lets the president say, ‘We do care about human rights, look what we’re doing in Venezuela.’”

While concerns swirl about the Maduro government’s human rights posture, Venezuela has grown closer to China.

As Beijing’s energy needs exploded over the past decade, Caracas emerged as a key partner by borrowing billions of dollars from the rising Asian superpower in exchange for cut-rate oil.

Some 95 percent of Venezuela’s exports to the rest of the world consist of crude oil shipments. According to a report by Business Insider, the exports account for more than 60 percent of the nation’s revenue stream.

But in light of its vast government expenditures, most reports maintain that the global price of oil needs to be as high as $120 a barrel in order for Venezuela to turn a profit extracting and exporting the commodity.

With the price having plummeted, Beijing is feeling the weight of risk associated with its investment in Venezuela. “China stands to lose a lot here,” said Mr. Isacson, who maintains that Venezuela owes Beijing $10 billion to $15 billion in oil shipments in exchange for cash doled out to Caracas during recent years.

“China’s stake in Venezuela’s economy is probably greater than the U.S. stake, and it’s not a really winning bet for them right now,” he said. “If they want to prop up a pro-Chinese government in the short term they’ve got to be very gentle about it.”

“China definitely has a reason to root for Maduro, and they have a stake in his ability to remain in office,” Mr. Isacson said. “But I don’t see them giving any more to subsidize their current course because they’re already losing. It would be like throwing good money after bad.”

With the danger of default looming, Venezuela’s ability to borrow more money is drying up. Without more credit, Caracas won’t be able to pay its own bills at home.

The ultimate result, Mr. Isacson said, will be “a huge cutback in basic services, including energy and public security.”

“There will be an immediate impact on housing and food subsidies, meaning the programs that have lifted people out of poverty will go away,” he said.
Such developments are likely to inflame the seething political tensions. Mr. Isacson and Mr. Shifter pointed to vexing uncertainty over who may take over if the Maduro government implodes.

“One should be cautious about predicting the imminent collapse of the Venezuelan government,” said Mr. Shifter, although he said the possibility is real that the nation’s military leaders may suddenly push for his replacement.

“But it’s unclear what the other options may be and who else can do a better job,” he said.

Mr. Isacson went further. “Venezuela’s never had a civil war before, [but] they’ve never been this polarized before, either,” he said. “Assuming things get so bad Maduro can’t govern, then the big question is who has the credibility with enough of the country to actually viably take over?”

“There’s no single figure within the opposition, except maybe the military, so you could be looking at a period of no clear successor, something like Libya after Gadhafi, which hasn’t risen to the level of a huge civil war but is chaotic like Egypt after Mubarak — but with a less-cohesive military.”

FRANCE : TERRAIN A BÂTIR : EXPLOXION DE LA TAXE FONCIERE DES 2015



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sle_Iw-6fa8&feature=youtu.be

 

Jeudi 13 novembre 2014



Si vous êtes propriétaire d’un terrain à bâtir, attendez-vous à voir votre taxe foncière augmenter considérablement en 2015.

La taxe foncière sur les terrains constructibles augmentera beaucoup à partir de 2015 dans les communes où la demande de logements excède l'offre, à savoir :
par CEJUSTICE

Ainsi, la périphérie des zones "tendues", qui a pu conserver un caractère rural, n'est pas concernée par cette augmentation de la taxe foncière.
Les terrains agricoles, eux aussi, échappent à cette hausse.

L’objectif est d’inciter les propriétaires des terrains à bâtir à vendre leur bien au plus vite et de favoriser ainsi la construction de logements neufs.

Deux augmentations en vue

La valeur locative de la taxe foncière augmentera de 25 % en 2015. Il s’y ajoute une majoration de 5 € le m2 en 2015 et en 2016, et de 10 € le m2 à partir de 2017.

Par exemple, le propriétaire d’une parcelle constructible de 1 000 m2 paiera 5 000 € de taxe foncière en 2015, contre 450 à 500 € en 2014, selon l’Union nationale de la propriété immobilière (UNPI).

Dans les autres régions aussi

Si vous êtes propriétaire d’un terrain à bâtir situé en dehors des communes dites « tendues », vous n'échapperez pas forcément à une hausse de la taxe foncière : les communes sont autorisées à augmenter cet impôt jusqu’à 3 € le m2.

L’augmentation de la taxe foncière a été prévue par la loi de finances pour 2013. Elle aurait dû intervenir en 2014, mais a été finalement reportée en 2015 (article 84 de la loi de finances pour 2014). Elle est à nouveau mentionnée dans le projet de loi de finances rectificative pour 2014 (article 16).

MESSAGE TO ISRAELIS : YOUR CASH IS NO GOOD HERE

The government has issued its final proposal for constructing a largely cashless society

By David Shamah January 5, 2015, 5:40 pm


Soon to be a rare sight in Israel? (illustrative picture credit: Abed Rahim Khatib/Flash 90)


David Shamah

The government has issued its final recommendations on limiting the use of cash in business transactions. As part of Israel’s efforts to fight money laundering, said the Finance Ministry’s State Revenue Division, cash transactions in business deals will be restricted to a maximum of NIS 10,000 (about $2,550).

That recommendation, and more, was part of a legislative memorandum – generally the first draft of a law slated to be proposed to the Knesset – issued Sunday by the State Revenue Division. The memorandum adopts many of the recommendations of a government committee headed by Harel Locker, director of the Prime Minister’s Office, which has been working for the past several years to develop the “cashless society” law.

According to the memorandum, cash (and check) payments to and from businesses will be limited to NIS 10,000 (about $2,500), while business deals between individuals can be conducted with up to NIS 50,000 in cash. Service providers like attorneys and accountants will also be limited to receiving NIS 50,000 in cash. In addition, “open” checks, in which an individual writes a check out to cash, or without a specific recipient, will no longer be honored by banks at all. Any check will have to have identifying information of both the writer and recipient.

Currently, there is no limit on how much individuals can exchange in business deals. For business deals (or deals with businesses, for individuals), the maximum cash transaction amount is NIS 20,000, a regulation issued in 2012. To get around the regulations for bigger purchases, many people just write multiple checks, receiving a separate receipt for each payment.

Instead of cash, deals for sums larger than the permitted amounts will be conducted with bank debit cards or digital wallets, with users transferring money between bank accounts via a bank machine or an app provided by the bank. The law will require banks to offer these services to all customers (they may charge a fee for this, the memorandum states), including those who do not qualify for credit cards or other bank cards.

And that’s just to start; the memorandum would have the Bank of Israel evaluate the system after a year, and if everything is working as desired, the Bank would cut the sums that could be used in cash transactions to NIS 5,000 for businesses deals, and NIS 15,000 for transactions between individuals.

The law, if it is approved by the Knesset, comes with teeth. The memorandum recommends imposing penalties on violators. Businesses that received payments in unassigned checks or in cash above the permitted limit could be fined 35% of the entire transaction, while payers in that deal could be assessed 25% of the money they paid. Individuals who violate the law could be assessed 25%-35% of the amount involved, and be fined up to NIS 4.5 million. And, repeat violators could face a jail sentence of up to three years – and be slapped with money-laundering charges as well.

The Revenue Division did not say when it would seek to legislate the measure – it will presumably be backed by whoever is running the government after the March elections – but that it would not be before the banks had set up the electronic wallet system that will replace cash payments, a spokesperson said.

In its report last June, the Locker Committee said that Israelis have more cash than ever — nearly NIS 50 billion — but tax collection has fallen significantly in recent years. Obviously, something is amiss, the committee said. “The economy has grown, as has the population, but the amount of business reported to tax authorities has fallen.” The logical conclusion, the committee said, is that more people are conducting transactions in cash.

Lest Israelis feel that the government is acting in too draconian a manner, the cabinet statement lists regulations in other places that are just as restrictive, if not more so. In the US, transactions of $10,000 or more are supposed to be reported to the Treasury Department; in the EU, cash transactions are currently restricted to 15,000 euros, but new regulations, if adopted, would cut that to 7,500 euros. And in countries like France, Italy, Spain and Belgium, individuals can be stopped on the street by special currency enforcement patrols who have the power to detain individuals or close down businesses violating currency regulations.

But analysts said that there were a lot of questions that needed to be answered before the project took off. In an interview, prominent Tel Aviv attorney Dr. Haim Stenger said that the new regulations would never hold up in court because they contradict Basic Laws (the Israeli equivalent of constitutional principles) — specifically, the Basic Law on Human Dignity and Liberty. That law, said Stenger, who has appeared before the High Court numerous times, specifically allows Israelis the right to “freely use their property,” a right that would be compromised if their freedom to use cash was restricted and the requirement to use an electronic wallet or debit card for transactions was implemented.

“As long as there is no specific limitation in the law, there is nothing to prevent the public from using cash for transactions, no matter what the amount,” Stenger said. Treasury regulations issued in 2012 limiting transactions between businesses are not necessarily covered by the Basic Law, but transactions between individuals certainly would be, he said — so it’s likely that any law passed by the Knesset on the matter would be struck down.

The government’s intent — to cut down on tax evasion and “black money” — is something all law-abiding Israelis agree with, said Stenger, but the way to implement it was not through a blanket ban of cash transactions. “Adding regulations and manpower targeting the habitual tax evaders will be much more effective than what is being proposed,” he said.

LA CHUTE DU PETROLE MENACE 250.000 EMPLOIS AUX ETATS-UNIS
La baisse de 60% du prix du baril n'est pas une bonne nouvelle pour les États américains producteurs comme le Texas, le Dakota du Nord ou l'Alaska.

Près de 250.000 emplois supprimés aux États-Unis à cause de la chute du pétrole. C'est le pronostic de la Réserve fédérale de Dallas qui estime que huit États américains (Alaska, Louisiane, Nouveau Mexique, Dakota du nord, Oklahoma, Texas, Virginie occidentale et Wyoming) pourraient voir disparaître au total 249.700 emplois d'ici l'été du fait de l'effondrement des cours du pétrole.

Plus de la moitié de ces postes menacés se trouvent au Texas, de loin le plus grand État concerné. Mais l'économie texane, toujours en forte croissance, assise sur une population de 27 millions de personnes, reste bien moins vulnérable que celle du Dakota du nord, car elle est beaucoup plus diversifiée notamment dans le secteur de la technologie et de la santé.

Le Dakota du Nord, grand comme un tiers de la France, est l'épicentre de la révolution du pétrole de schiste. Cet État de 740.000 habitants risque le «bust», c'est à dire un «boom» à l'envers: 4,6 % de la population y travaillait dans le secteur pétrolier l'an dernier, produisant à lui seul autant d'or noir que le sultanat d'Oman. Même chose pour le Wyoming, autre grand bénéficiaire de la révolution énergétique de ces dernières années et dont une proportion record de 6 % de la population travaille dans le pétrole.

Risque de ruine pour détenteurs de «junk bonds»


Dans un premier temps, l'effondrement des cours déclenche une réduction des dépenses d'exploration, la suspension de nouveaux forages et de multiples économies qui frappent d'abord les sociétés de services et les fournisseurs d'équipements des exploitants. Des sociétés comme Weatherford, Halliburton, Baker Hughes et Schlumberger sont parmi les premières à trinquer. Certaines ont déjà annoncé des réductions d'effectifs.

Mais ces grands noms se trouvent aussi en position d'avaler leurs plus petits rivaux, moins diversifiés et plus fragiles. Par ailleurs les faillites de foreurs indépendants ont commencé. Les investisseurs qui les ont financés sur la base d'obligations à haut risque, en misant sur un cours du pétrole proche de 80 dollars seront ruinés avec eux. 18 % des sociétés qui ont émis ces «junk bonds» sont dans le secteur de l'énergie. Selon la banque JP Morgan Chase, 40 % de ces émetteurs risquent de tomber en situation de défaut d'ici trois ans si le pétrole ne remonte pas au dessus de 65 dollars.

GERALD CELENTE : 'WORLWIDE PANIC BEGINNING - THERE IS NO RECOVERY"

January 16, 2015

VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKTuFKxcc_c




By Live Free Or Die - All News Pipeline

The screenshot above from the Facebook page of Trends Forecaster Gerald Celente tells us what the mainstream media won't tell us, the looks on the faces of the business traders in the linked King World News story tells us the rest; the shocking move by the Swiss National Bank is only the BEGINNING of a much larger global meltdown; there is no recovery; we're heading towards a global economic collapse. In the video below featuring Gerald Celente with Rick Wiles on TruNews, Celente gives us his full analysis for the year 2015 beginning at the 14 minute mark.

Rick begins the program by warning that the wheels are beginning to come off the cart with the Swiss Bank decision, saying that traders were totally unprepared for what was coming: "Complete carnage" one trader said. Sharing that it's not every day that a country's central bank pulls the rug out from under so many feet, "clearly people are worried that there's something bigger afoot." Warning us that what we're watching now is only the beginning of the coming 'economic tsunami', we're also asked why the mainstream media is putting out stories about economic recovery while one of Bloomberg's lead stories is called "Mayhem Erupts On Trading Floors After Swiss Central Banks Remove Cap On Franc."

From Celente at King World News: So the worst is yet to come and there is no way out.  And I would suggest to people as they look around the world at the geopolitical problems that are going on and how so many countries are becoming police states — under the guise of terrorism — that they ask themselves:  Are these countries really afraid of terrorism or are they afraid of their own populations that are losing everything and will take to the streets?  Because that’s what we see coming.  We see a global collapse.  There’s no recovery — it’s been a coverup.”

EVEREST CAPITAL FALLS VICTIM TO SWISS FRANC, SHUTTERS LARGEST FUND : REPORT 

THE ILLUMINATI'S BLACK SWAN/COLLAPSING WORLD ECONOMY

Pierre Albouy | Reuters

People queue outside a currency exchange office in Geneva, January 15, 2015. The Swiss National Bank scrapped its cap on the franc on Thursday sending the safe-haven currency crashing below the 1.20 per euro floor it set over three years ago.

Switzerland's unexpected decision to allow its currency to float freely once more against the euro may have claimed another victim—Everest Capital's Global Fund.

Bloomberg News, citing a person close to the firm, reported Saturday that Everest's $830 million fund, its largest, took a bath after the Swiss National Bank unyoked the franc from Europe's single currency this week. The Miami-based firm is run by Marko Dimitrijevic, a hedge fund veteran who has a long history in turbulent emerging markets.

The SNB's decision to remove the three-year-old peg, a legacy of Europe's debt crisis, left a number of financial firms reeling. One of the worst hit was retail currency trading firm FXCM was forced to take a $300 million lifeline from Leucadia National. Major Wall Street banks like Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and Barclays also took a hit.

As recently as last January, the European Central Bank ranked FXCM as the world's third-largest retail foreign exchange broker.

Reached by CNBC, a representative for Everest Capital declined to comment.

Bloomberg's full report can be found here.

L'INDICE FAO DES PRIX ALIMENTAIRES RECULE EN DECEMBRE 2014

La FAO est une autre tentacule des Nations Unies, qui ne cesse de répandre ses mensonges, dans tous ce qui touche l'agriculture et l'alimentation. Nous n'avons qu'à comparer ce que nous avons dans nos paniers d'épicerie comparativement à ce que nous avions, il y a quelques années et mois à peine, pour voir que leur indice, c'est du bidon. Dans un autre article "La FAO s’invite au Siège de l’ONU à New York pour organiser une exposition et une campagne de pétitions sur la lutte contre la faim
" http://www.un.org/press/fr/2010/Note_No._6268.doc.htm , nos tyrans vont aller vers le bon peuple endormi qui croit que la Communauté Internationale viendra à leur secours, et leur faire signer une pétition qui se ramassera dans la filière 13 ou au bureau du Homeland Security.

8 janvier 2015 – L'indice mensuel des prix des denrées alimentaires de l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO) s'est contracté en décembre 2014 après trois mois de stabilité générale. Une offre soutenue et abondante de denrées alimentaires, des stocks record, un dollar plus fort et la chute des cours du pétrole ont contribué à cette baisse.

L'indice FAO des prix alimentaires s'est établi en moyenne à 188,6 points en décembre 2014, soit une baisse de 1,7% par rapport au mois précédent. Il a été plombé par la contraction des cours du sucre et de l'huile de palme.

Sur l'ensemble de 2014, l'indice FAO des prix alimentaires s'est établi en moyenne à 202 points, soit une baisse de 3,7% par rapport à 2013, et une troisième année consécutive de régression. Ce recul d'une année sur l'autre s'est produit malgré la bonne performance du sous-indice de la viande qui a atteint une moyenne annuelle exceptionnelle de 199 points, soit en hausse de 8,1% par rapport à 2013. Les cours des céréales, en revanche, ont chuté de 12,5% par rapport à l'année précédente sous l'effet des prévisions faisant état de récoltes record et de stocks abondants.

L'indice FAO des prix alimentaires est un indice pondéré par les échanges commerciaux qui permet de suivre les prix des cinq principaux groupes de produits alimentaires sur le marché international. Il agrège les sous-indices des prix des céréales, de la viande, des produits laitiers, des huiles végétales et du sucre.

Quatre de ces indices ont reculé en 2014 et sont quasiment ou presque à leurs niveaux les plus bas en cinq ans.

L'indice FAO des prix des céréales a atteint en moyenne 183,9 points en décembre 2014, soit une hausse de 0,4% par rapport à novembre, les cours du blé ayant profité des craintes d'une possible limitation des exportations de la Russie. Cependant, l'augmentation a été plafonnée par le raffermissement du dollar américain. En outre, les cours du riz ont nettement diminué du fait de l'abondance des disponibilités exportables.

L'indice FAO des prix de l'huile végétale a régressé de 2,4% atteignant en décembre 2014 son plus bas niveau en cinq ans, soit 161 points, en raison principalement de l'effritement de la demande sur l'huile de palme comme matière première pour le biodiesel suite à la chute des cours mondiaux du pétrole.

L'indice FAO des prix des produits laitiers a reculé de 2,3% à 174 points, soit son plus bas niveau depuis la fin de 2009, le ralentissement des importations de la Chine et de la Russie s'étant traduit par d'abondantes disponibilités exportables sur les marchés internationaux. Les baisses de prix les plus importantes concernent le lait en poudre, le beurre et le fromage.

L'indice FAO des prix de la viande s'est quand même replié en décembre 2014 enregistrant une baisse de 1,9% par rapport au mois précédent sous l'effet du regain de vigueur du dollar américain qui a freiné les prix du bœuf et du mouton d'Océanie ainsi que les prix du porc en provenance d'Europe. Cependant à 204 points, cet indice est proche de ses sommets mensuels historiques et, sur une année complète, il a augmenté de 8,1% par rapport à 2013. Il est l'unique groupe de produits à enregistrer des prix moyens plus élevés sur l'année.

L'indice FAO des cours du sucre a chuté de 4,8% à 291 points en décembre 2014, soit son plus bas niveau en au moins quatre ans, principalement en raison de l'abondance de l'offre dans les grands pays producteurs comme le Brésil. La chute des cours du pétrole brut, qui a réduit la demande sur les cultures à sucre pour en tirer de l'éthanol, a également pesé sur les cours internationaux du sucre.

La baisse des cours du brut a entraîné des tendances baissières pour les produits pouvant être utilisés pour la production de biocarburant, notamment le sucre, mais aussi l'huile de palme, selon l'expert de la FAO Abdolreza Abbassian. « L'abondance de l'offre mise à part, la baisse des cours du brut rend évidemment la production d'éthanol moins attrayante », fait-il observer.

L’IRAN RENONCE AU DOLLAR DANS SON COMMERCE EXTERIEUR 



L'Iran n'utilise plus le dollar américain dans ses transactions avec d'autres pays, a annoncé samedi le vice-gouverneur de la Banque centrale (BC) du pays Gholamali Kamyab, cité par l'agence Tasnim.

"Dans ses échanges commerciaux avec l'étranger, l'Iran se sert désormais d'autres monnaies, notamment du yuan chinois, de l'euro, de la livre turque, du rouble russe et du won sud-coréen", a déclaré M.Kamyab.

Et d'ajouter que Téhéran envisageait de conclure des accords monétaires bilatéraux avec plusieurs pays pour faciliter le commerce et les transactions économiques.

"Des négociations sur la signature de tels accords débuteront sous peu", a précisé le vice-gouverneur de la BC iranienne.

CANADA - QUEBEC : VERS UNE NOUVELLE "REINGENIERIE" DE L'ETAT

Philippe Couillard à l'Assemblée nationale du Québec, en décembre dernier.

Denis Lessard
La Presse

(Québec) Échaudé par bien des échecs, le gouvernement Couillard avance avec circonspection sur la voie d'une nouvelle «réingénierie» de l'État. Des fusions et des disparitions d'organismes sont au menu de Québec pour les prochains mois, une opération qui, par exemple, amalgamerait la Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CSST) et la Commission des normes du travail (CNT).


La commande avait été passée il y a plusieurs semaines par le conseil exécutif auprès de l'ensemble des sous-ministres. Québec a devant lui quelques scénarios, qui supposent des regroupements, mais on veut s'assurer que les services ne seront pas altérés par la fusion d'organismes. Dans la plupart des cas, des lois devront être modifiées.

La CSST et la CNT réunies?

Parmi les idées les plus avancées, on a demandé à la CSST d'évaluer les avantages d'une fusion avec la Commission des normes du travail. Les deux organismes sont financés par les employeurs, seule la CNT émarge aux budgets de l'État. Les deux sont des guichets destinés aux travailleurs et aux employeurs dans le secteur du travail.

Faire disparaître un organisme présente des avantages à moyen terme; on fait table rase d'une direction des ressources humaines, d'un secteur de communications. À court terme, toutefois, les économies sont moins évidentes - la plupart des employés, syndiqués, doivent être réaffectés.

Une autre fusion examinée par Québec est celle de la Régie des rentes et de la Commission administrative des régimes de retraite (CARRA), qui sont dans les mêmes créneaux, la première pour l'ensemble de la population, la seconde pour les employés de l'État. Les retards et les erreurs de la CARRA, dans le calcul des prestations  contribuent à la volonté de Québec de procéder à ce mariage de raison.

D'autres fusions ont été examinées, mais l'intention, claire à l'automne, semble désormais s'être essoufflée. On voulait intégrer l'Institut de la statistique au ministère des Finances, mais l'organisme traite une foule de données qui n'ont rien à voir avec l'économie. Le statisticien en chef doit aussi être totalement indépendant du gouvernement, ce qui serait difficile s'il relevait d'un sous-ministre.

Autre avenue considérée: le ministère de la Culture avalerait une série d'organismes, dont la Régie du cinéma, mais encore là, les économies ne sont pas évidentes. La Régie s'autofinance et amène de surcroît des revenus au gouvernement.

Si Québec avance avec circonspection sur cette voie, c'est qu'elle est truffée de nids-de-poule. Dès son arrivée au pouvoir, en 2003, Jean Charest s'était fait fort de procéder à une «réingénierie de l'État». Sous la férule d'un ancien mandarin, Thomas Boudreau, on avait identifié 60 organismes dont la mission devait être réévaluée.

La présidente du Conseil du trésor, Monique Jérôme-Forget, avait annoncé deux ans plus tard la disparition de 22 organismes. Quatre organismes étaient réellement abolis, dont trois sociétés qui n'existaient plus que sur papier.

En 2011, même démarche, pilotée cette fois par Michèle Courchesne, avec passablement plus de succès. Le projet de loi 130 visait à faire disparaître Recyc-Québec ainsi que le ministère des Services gouvernementaux. Le Centre des services partagés passera sous le Conseil du trésor, un simple changement de tutelle. Recyc-Québec restera intact. La Corporation d'hébergement du Québec sera fusionnée avec la Société immobilière du Québec. La Société générale de financement (SGF) sera avalée par Investissement Québec. Mme Courchesne était aussi parvenue à obtenir la disparition de plusieurs organismes-conseils.

LEADING RUSSIAN BANKER WARNS OF WAR BETWEEN US AND RUSSIA 

Fri Jan 23, 2015 3:35PM


VTB CEO Andrei Kostin

Further financial sanctions by the United States against Russia would lead Moscow and Washington to the “brink of war,” the head of a leading Russian bank has warned.

Ties between the US and Russia will be severed if Russian banks were excluded from the Swift banking system due to tougher sanctions, said Andrei Kostin, the chairman of Russian state-controlled VTB Bank.

“Ambassadors can leave capitals. It means Russia and America might have no relationship after that,” Kostin said at the World Economic Forum on Friday.

“If there is no banking relationship, it means the countries are on the verge of war, or definitely in the cold war,” he added. “It will be a very dangerous situation.”

As one of Russia’s most senior bankers, Kostin meets regularly with President Vladimir Putin and other top officials.

The US and the European Union have already imposed several rounds of sanctions on Russia, including visa bans and asset freezes.

Ties between Washington and Moscow deteriorated last year over the crisis in Ukraine after pro-Western forces ousted the country’s president Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014.

The US and its allies accuse Moscow of sending troops into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces. Moscow has long denied any involvement in Ukraine's conflict.

The Kremlin has described Washington’s foreign policy on Ukraine as “aggressive”, saying the policy “fails to meet present-day realities and demonstrates that the United States actually wants to dominate the world.”

At his State of the Union address on Tuesday, US President Barack Obama said increased US support for Ukraine was a principled stand against Russia's "aggression."

The president said the United States and its allies were united against Moscow, a policy he said has left Russia isolated diplomatically and weakened economically.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov lashed out Wednesday at Obama's speech, saying the comments showed the US had adopted a policy of confrontation towards Russia.

2014 : PIRES CHIFFRES DU CHÔMAGE DE L'HISTOIRE(6 211 700 CHÔMEURS OFFICIELS) EN FRANCE

27 janvier, 2015
Économie & social

Pendant que François Hollande se pavane à Auschwitz pour célébrer l’asservissement physique de l’Europe par les armées de Staline et l’asservissement intellectuel, moral et financier moral à Israël, Pôle emploi a dévoilé les chiffres du chômage pour 2014. Ils sont une nouvelle fois catastrophiques avec 8 100 chômeurs de plus en décembre (+0,2 %), une hausse de 5,7 % en un an.

Jamais le chômage n’a été aussi haut dans l’histoire de France, avec officiellement, pour la seule catégorie A, 3 496 400 chômeurs et pour l’ensemble des catégories 5 879 000 personnes privées d’un véritable travail en France métropolitaine. En comptant les DOM, le nombre de chômeurs désormais très largement les 6 millions avec 6 211 700.


Le chômage en France métropolitaine

Le chômage frappe sans distinction toutes les catégories sociales, tous les sexes (sur un an pour les catégories A, B et C : +7 % pour les hommes, +5,8 % pour les femmes), tous les âges, le gouvernement ayant échoué dans sa prétendue lutte pour l’emploi des jeunes (+2,6 % pour la catégorie A) comme pour les seniors (+10,8 % sur un an), comme concernant les chômeurs de longue durée dont le nombre explose (+9,7 % pour les catégories A, B et C), avec les graves conséquences individuelles, familiales et sociales que cela implique.

Tout aussi inquiétant, le nombre des offres d’emploi collectées par Pôle emploi ont reculé en décembre de 2,2 % et 5,8 % sur un an.

Pesant lourdement sur la collectivité, le fardeau du chômage est aggravé par le RSA, que touchent 908 900 chômeurs des catégories A, B et C (17,2 % du total).

BOUND BROOK COPS STOP TEENS SEEKING SNOW SHOVELING WORK

Local law bans unlicensed door-to-door soliciting; police worried about 'state of emergency'


(Photo: Mark R. Sullivan/Staff photo)

This story was first published Tuesday, Jan. 27 and updated Thursday, Jan. 29.

BOUND BROOK – School was closed for the blizzard that wasn't, but there was still enough snow on the ground that two Bridgewater-Raritan Regional High School seniors thought they could make a few extra bucks.

In the process, Matt Molinari and Eric Schnepf, both 18, also learned a valuable lesson about one of the costs of doing business: government regulations.

The two friends were canvasing a neighborhood near this borough's border with Bridgewater early Monday evening, handing out fliers promoting their service, when they were pulled over by police and told to stop.

The story was shared on a popular Bound Brook Facebook group by a resident who saw Schnepf being questioned by police after coming to his door.
COOKE: Some laws have regrettable collateral damage

"Are you kidding me? Our generation does nothing but complain about his generation being lazy and not working for their money," he wrote on Bound Brook NJ Events' page. "Here's a couple kids who take the time to print up flyers, walk door to door in the snow, and then shovel snow for some spending money. And someone calls the cops and they're told to stop?"


COURIER NEWS
EDITORIAL: The blizzard was a fizzard


Members of the group responded with support for the young entrepreneurs.

Bound Brook, like many municipalities in the state and country, has a law against unlicensed solicitors and peddlers.

Despite the rule, however, Police Chief Michael Jannone said the two young businessmen were not arrested or issued a ticket, and that the police's concern was about them being outside during dangerous conditions, not that they were unlicensed.

"We don't make the laws but we have to uphold them," he said Tuesday after reading some of the online comments about the incident. "This was a state of emergency. Nobody was supposed to be out on the road."

The teens took the incident in stride and said that police told them that they only needed permission to go door to door, but were still allowed to shovel walkways if residents called them.

"The cops were nice about it. They weren't jerks. They were trying to make sure everything is OK," Molinari said Tuesday.

In this borough, anyone selling goods and services door to door must apply for a license that can cost as much as $450 for permission that is valid for only 180 days. Nonprofits are exempt from the fee but must still apply for a permit.

Similar bans around the country have put the kibosh on other capitalist rites of passage, such as lemonade stands and selling Girl Scouts cookies.
“We don't make the laws but we have to uphold them.”

Police Chief Michael Jannone

Such laws have been challenged elsewhere on the grounds that they violate the First Amendment right to free speech. The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, for example, is suing New Brunswick over a similar law that prohibits panhandling and begging.

The Bound Brook ordinance does not apply to people going door to door for political reasons or to volunteer firefighters or real estate and insurance salesmen licensed by the state.

Jannone said an officer was dispatched to the street because a resident called to report a "suspicious person" with curly blond hair and a hoodie who was walking through yards.

A responding officer told the young men that it wasn't safe to be out and to come back during the day.

Jannone said his department has no interest in cracking down on kids who want to shovel sidewalks or driveways. The law was made for transient scam artists who prey on the vulnerable, he said
.
"The spirit of the ordinance is to protect residents from gypsy activity. People will solicit door to door and target the elderly and get into their house," he said.
Janonne said the fliers that the two young men were handing out had their first names and cell phone numbers.

"People doing something illegal probably won't extend this much identifying information," he said.

The pair managed to get five jobs by early Tuesday afternoon, earning between $25 to $40 a house.

"We don't really bargain," Schnepf said. "We help some people out and get whatever they're willing to pay."

DIKTAT CRIMINEL. WASHINGTON MENACE LA RUSSIE DE NOUVELLES SANCTIONS 

Posted on jan 30, 2015 @ 8:46


Vladimir Poutine et Barack Obama/Archives

Les Etats-Unis ont menacé jeudi la Russie de nouvelles sanctions si Moscou continue de soutenir la rébellion en Ukraine et salué les nouvelles mesures prises par l’UE. Et pourtant, eux-mêmes soutiennent ouvertement le gouvernement des petits nazillons de Kiev, en les finançant, armant et encourageant à mettre la Russie en difficulté (vidéo). 

L’accord entre les ministres des Affaires étrangères européens d’étendre les sanctions déjà existantes « est un signe supplémentaire que les événements des derniers jours et semaines sont absolument inacceptables et qu’ils auront de nouvelles conséquences », a déclaré la porte-parole du département d’Etat Jennifer Psaki, en référence aux récentes attaques dans l’est de l’Ukraine.

La réunion des ministres européens à Bruxelles jeudi « a traduit par d’importantes sanctions des efforts en cours depuis des mois », a ajouté Mme Psaki, précisant qu’il s’agissait d’une « avancée positive ».

Elle n’a cependant pas indiqué quand les Etats-Unis prendraient de leur côté une nouvelle salve de sanctions, ni qui elles viseraient. « Nous ajoutons parfois des noms, parfois des secteurs ou des entreprises, et c’est pareil pour l’UE », a-t-elle simplement précisé, en référence aux listes noires. « Nous continuons d’étudier qui seront les prochains. »

Mardi, le président américain Barack Obama et la chancelière allemande Angela Merkel « s’étaient mis d’accord » sur le fait que la Russie devra « assumer la responsabilité » de son « soutien matériel aux séparatistes » pro-russes dans l’est de l’Ukraine. Barack Obama avait également indiqué étudier « toutes les options » pour mettre fin au conflit en cours en Ukraine, et dans lequel la Russie dément toute implication.

Ces gens sont fous. C’est comme si leur manège n’était pas connu par tous. C’est insupportable…

"CATASTROPHIC SHUTDOWN OF AMERICA'S SUPPLY CHAIN LOOMS" AS WEST COAST PORT WORKER TALKS BREAK DOWN

Bloomberg & ZeroHedge REPORTING "CATASTROPHIC SHUTDOWN LOOMS"!




VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-RMI-U0E0E





Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/05/2015 14:25 -0500

For those who have been following the recent ISM reports, one of the recurring concerns of respondents in both the manufacturing and service sector has been the congestion at West Coast Ports - which handled 43.5% of containerized cargo in the U.S and where transiting cargo accounted for 12.5% of US GDP - as a result of reduced work output by the local unions who have been more focused in recent weeks on ongoing wage hike negotiations. 



And according to the latest update from the 29 west coast ports that serve as the entry point of the bulk of Asia/Pac trade into and out of the US, things are about to get far worse for America's manufacturing base, because as RILA reported earlier, talks between the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) representing port management, and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) officially broke down on Wednesday, and without an agreement, experts have suggested that nearly 30 west coast ports could be shut down within a week.

As RILA reports, "a work slowdown during contract negotiations over the past seven months has already created logistic nightmares for American exporters, manufacturers and retailers dependent on an efficient supply chain. A complete shutdown would be catastrophic, with hundreds of thousands of jobs at risk if America’s supply chain grinds to a halt."

Citation:


"A west coast port shutdown would be an economic disaster," said Kelly Kolb, vice president of government affairs for the Retail Industry Leaders Association. “A shutdown would not only impact the hundreds of thousands of jobs working directly in America’s transportation supply chain, but the reality is the entire economy would be impacted as exports sit on docks and imports sit in the harbor waiting for manufacturers to build products and retailers to stock shelves. 
 
“The slowdown is already making life difficult, but a shutdown could derail the economy completely,” said Kolb. “For retailers specifically, a shutdown will have dire consequences for those dependent on spring inventory demand.”
 
The last prolonged port shutdown of the West Coast ports was the 10-day lockout in 2002 which was estimated to cost the U.S. economy close to $1 billion a day.
 
“A port shutdown of even a short duration could derail economic growth and cause long-lasting damage and job losses across the country,” said Kolb. “There needs to be a greater sense of urgency at the White House, before it’s too late.”


One can see why the US retail association is concerned. So will there be a strike? Here is Bloomberg's take:

Union-led work slowdowns could halt the 29 U.S. West Coast ports in five to 10 days, the head of the shippers’ association said, urging the union to accept a new offer that includes 3 percent raises. James McKenna, the president of the Pacific Maritime Association, said backups and delays at many of the ports are harming farmers, manufacturers and consumers as the flow of goods approaches a “coast-wide meltdown.” He called on the International Longshore and Warehouse Union to accept management’s second formal contract proposal since negotiations began last May.
 
“We’re not considering a lockout,” McKenna said on a conference call with reporters, his first public comments since the talks began. “What I’m really saying is that this system will bring it to a stop. Once that happens, we really don’t have a choice.”



Which is like the ECB saying "we don't really want Greece out, but we will halt their liquidity. Once that happens, Greece doesn't really have a choice."

Here are the port workers' demands:

The association of shipping lines, terminal operators and stevedores made public details of its contract offer, including 3 percent annual raises over five years, retaining employer-paid health care, and raising pensions by 11 percent. The average dockworker now makes $147,000 a year in salary, plus $35,000 a year in employer-paid health care and an annual pension of $80,000, according to an association press release.



And while there hasn't been a formal lock out yet, the reality is that the workers have made their displeasure felt loud and clear:

McKenna blamed the union for work slowdowns that have contributed to congestion at the largest West Coast ports, including Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle and Tacoma. Twenty-two ships were queued up Wednesday at the harbor shared by the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports, up from as few as four in mid-December, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California, in one measure of the backups confronting shippers.
 
Since early November, the longshore union has been dispatching fewer crane operators in Los Angeles and Long Beach and slowing cargo movement in Oakland, Seattle and Tacoma, according to a Feb. 3 maritime association presentation. McKenna said productivity at many ports is down by as much as half, suggesting that cargo movement “will collapse under its own weight.”


Some of the impacts of the already experienced slowdown has included keeping U.S.-raised Christmas trees from reaching consumers in Asia, depriving McDonald’s customers in Japan of french fries, and stranded shipments of Mardi Gras beads bound for New Orleans.

Should talks fall apart, it probably will not be the end of the world: a nearly identical situation developed one decade ago leading to a 10 day lock down and which ended up costing the US economy $10 billion per day:
Citation:


In the conference call, McKenna said the two sides remain at odds over wages, pensions, the duration of the contract and arbitration for workplace disputes. He said the sides are “far apart” on some issues and nearing agreement on others.
 
The parties negotiated many of the same issues in 2002 before the maritime association locked out workers for 10 days amid slowdowns. That stoppage, which ended when then-President George W. Bush invoked the Taft-Hartley Act, cost the U.S. economy $1 billion a day, the maritime association said.
 
A 20-day lockout now would cost more than $2 billion a day, the association said in a report last year, including losses to railroads, ocean carriers and the broader economy.



Which incidentally, in an economy that is desperate for any "one-time, non-recurring" item to explain what is now global secular stagnation and economic slowdown, an excuse such as a port strike, or a harsh winter, or a strong dollar, or plunging crude, may be precisely the scapegoat that the central-planning doctor ordered.
