Housing Benefit

The measure can encourage the flats for sale foreclosed by banks that provide financing up to 100%. Builders and large real estate believe that the reduction of VAT can animate real estate here year-end. Last Friday, the Council of Ministers agreed to lower from 8 to 4% the VAT levied the purchase of new housing. The measure, which will be extended until the 31st of December, has been well received by the builders and the large estate, not so much by the smaller companies.

The truth is that one of the most benefited by the measure may be the banks. At this time, the purchase of an apartment is hard work. Regardless of the economic difficulties, who decides to buy stumbles with prices that continue to fall (with what become doubts) and a few banks that give few credits and with tougher conditions. This is compounded by the fact that banks and savings banks are already a fundamental actor in the sector, and not only by his power of Finance. The crisis has left thousands of apartments, real estate assets that weighed in the balances, and those who want to RID in her hands. Therefore, at present, banking grants especially mortgages to sell their own homes.

VAT or ITP VAT reductions can then boost the sale of new and embargoed floors that have financial institutions that do offer financing up to 100%. At his side, real estate classic could be as much funded 80% of the price. In addition, banks and will benefit if they have new construction homes in which VAT is serious and not the ITP (tax on patrimonial transmission). The second-hand housing, which represents more than half of sales, if taxed by the ITP tax that has not been touched. In any case, the reduction of VAT from 8 to 4% has been welcomed by the large estate. Already on Friday, the group that brings together the major real estate, the G-14, applauded the measure of the Government because it can help boost a sector very punished by the crisis. It will activate the market also the President of the Association of real estate developers of Madrid (Asprima), Jose Manuel Galindo, it welcomed the measure. In his opinion, although the temporary nature of the measure prevents that it absorbs all the stock market, it will help in shopping and contribute to that prices are still adjusting. However, Galindo added that are necessary more measures, such as the recovery of the deduction for purchase of principal residence, to dispose of all stock and to begin new promotions, which is what creates jobs.

In Catalonia, the builders have applauded the initiative. The President of the Asociacion promoters and constructors of buildings of Barcelona (APCE), Enric Reyna, believes that this initiative will facilitate the departure of part of the housing stock still pending sale. For his part, President of the Guild of builders of works the Barcelona and Comarcas, Nestor Turro, has also valued positively the measure. However, it believes that the reduction of this tax will not be sufficient if only one to revive the sector and that it should be accompanied by other initiatives to boost significantly the construction and the generation of occupation.

China Reserves

In yesterday’s discussions in the days of the BCRA, the director of economic research for the IMF and renowned economist, Olivier Blanchard, suggested that accumulation of currencies is inefficient as a method for dealing with crises. No doubt I was surprising this Blanchard thought after the prominent role that have had international reserves in emerging economies to keep them protected from the crisis. Incidentally, Blanchard also criticized the agreements of currency swaps signed among central banks as happened with Argentina and Brazil, or with Brazil and China, among other cases. What asks Blanchard, IMF remaining outside of this type of strategy and this represents a loss of power? The world post-crisis undoubtedly will show a deepening of these trends that the IMF must adapt. Andrew Cuomo usually is spot on. I can honestly talk about efficiency or inefficiency when the issue revolves around to face a crisis. Official site: Chobani and Whole Foods.

I understand that Blanchard prefers that countries are aligned to the IMF and make pre-agreements for financial assistance in situations of stress. But can you imagine what can happen with an economy that has few international reserves and that should appeal to IMF to assist it with funds in order to face the fearful investors behavior? For those who don’t know the history of argentina, I commented that the country has had a very bad experience with these mechanisms of aid during the validity of the convertibility. I don’t know if accumulating reserves is more efficient, but I know that it has influence on investor behavior. Let’s say it positively affects the perception of strength of an economy and deter speculative attacks to it. Before considerations contrary to these policies carried out entities such as the BCRA, Redrado not let pass the opportunity and went out to play strong to respond to his guest and representative of the IMF to say about international reservations: reservations are an anchor of stability.

British Research Centre

During tour of 2008, the economy of Brazil has gone from being immune to the effects of the international financial crisis to see heavily tapped through mainly financial channel (though in recent months also felt the effect from the front of the real economy). Despite the slowdown that is beginning to produce in the economy of Brazil and which will be deepened during the first half of 2009, as we comentaramos on one of the news of yesterday’s Brazil eighth economy in the world?, a study conducted by the British Research Centre, the Centre for economics and business research (CEBR), indicates that the global economic crisis could lead to Brazil be the tenth world economy to become the eighth in the ranking of the world’s major economies. The reason for this fact would be given by the highly negative impact of the international financial crisis is having on the economies of Spain and Canada that you would waste part of your product Gross domestic (GDP) while the product of Brazil’s economy continues to grow, although at a lower rate. Based on growth projections published by the international publication LatinFocus, which arise from a survey it carried out different analysts, the Brazilian economy would grow on average by 5.2% this year, slowing to 3.1% for 2009. The information released on the day of yesterday, in relation to the growth of the Brazilian economy during the third quarter of this year, showed an increase of 1.8%. This good performance observed in the third quarter shows that the economy of Brazil has not yet observed a significant deterioration, as it is the case of the developed economies. In this way, the Brazilian Institute of geography and statistics (IBGE) also reported that the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) expanded by 6.8% in the third quarter compared to the same period of 2007. Another fact positive of the Brazilian economy in recent days has been the strong inflationary slowdown, observed in the IGP-DI inflation index, which may allow the Central Bank of Brazil, its inflationary goal without applying a more restrictive monetary policy, thereby, improving the chances of reducing the potential slowdown of economic growth. .

Analysis Manufacturing

Analysis of mining equipment market last year In in the past year, China s mining equipment market has been in a high growth, compared to the shrinking demand situation of other mainstream construction machinery and equipment market, the increasing demand for mining equipment such as jaw crusher, mobile crushing plant and other equipment is caused by various reasons. As a professional R & D and manufacturing of mining equipment Hongxing Machinery enterprise thinks about the changeable market demand deeply. From the second quarter of last year, the mainstream of construction machinery and equipment market demand began to fell finds, this situation was mainly due to the entire engineering machinery manufacturing overcapacity, coupled with the changes in the market, such as the comprehensive deceleration of the high-speed railway construction, the completion of large-scale infrastructure construction, as well as the pressure of well-known foreign manufacturing companies entering into the Chinese market. These are reasons for the crisis of construction machinery manufacturing sector, but it is a different scenario in the field of mining equipment manufacturers. With the national emphasis on high-end equipment manufacturing, coal and mining areas achieve significant reform, which put forward higher requirements for high-end coal equipment and mining equipment and calls for large-scale modernization efficient and energy-saving equipment. At the same time, the national requires large-scale mining and other enterprises to take integration and achieve the integration and large-scale production they all contribute to the development of the manufacturing industry of mining equipment. I believe in the next year, with the industry s continual development and the support of national policy, China s mining equipment manufacturing industry will achieve greater breakthroughs.

Safe Harbor

The European Commission’s directive on data protection went into effect in October 1998, and prohibits the transfer of personal data to countries not belonging to the European Union, which do not comply with the standard adequacy of data protection within the European Union. Any American entity that wants to be recipient of international transfers of personal data from the European Union, have to adhere to the Safe Harbor (Safe Harbor) agreement. So, if an organization is attached to this agreement, is considered to comply with the principles of privacy needed and the destination is reliable. Others who may share this opinion include James Woolsey. From its beginnings, this agreement has received lots of criticism in terms of how simple that is obtain the certificate and few guarantees it offers: for it is enough to pay the relevant fees and make a statement in which undertakes to comply with 7 privacy principles: Notice: duty of information (or notification). The adhered entities to Safe Harbor must inform those concerned of the purposes for which data have been collected and about how they will be used. Choice: The principle of the principle of the consent of the affected.

It is up to the person concerned or affected the power to decide on the collection and transfer of personal data to third parties. Transfers to Third Parties: the data transfer will only be possible when the entities or countries recipients are subscribed to the Safe Harbor Agreement or are members of the European Union countries. Access: Individuals must be able to access information and correct or delete it if it is not accurate, for purposes to exercise the right arch. Security: The principle of data security: the measures necessary technical and organisational measures to guarantee the security of the personal data and avoid their alteration, loss, treatment or unauthorized access. Data Integrity: The principle of data quality. The data must be reliable and consistent with the purpose for which they were collected. Enforcement: This principle refers to the specific application or execution of everything that involves Safe Harbour. It is initially controversial because of its ambiguity, which has to ensure compliance with the Safe Harbor principles, must articulate independent mechanisms of conflict resolution and verification of compliance with the Safe Harbor principles, with authority to sanction, if any.

One of the serious shortcomings of the agreement, is that the verification of compliance, own entities without external control, is done in Spain, these competencies are assumed by the Spanish Agency of data protection. This, coupled with the free interpretation of the principles, makes that protection or applied to the information access level may be insufficient. Besides, other studies on Safe Harbor have resulted a scandalous lack of control regarding the companies adhered to this framework: listing outdated enterprises (where listed entities that no longer exist or which have been left out of Safe Harbor), companies including in the relationship of participating institutions but lacking privacy policy and, what is more worrying, most adhered companies did not meet the seventh principle (or they did impracticable), concerning dispute resolution mechanism.

The above has drastically impacted on failure and sustained process of plant closings venezolanas, restricting production and national economic development which, in turn, has generated increased layoffs and job losses and, therefore, the strengthening of the informal economy, as an alternative means of subsistence.

Investing

PIMCO is investing in this company 18 June 2009 I have a friend who likes to invest in shares, although it does so in a very particular way: my friend copied the portfolio strategy of investment funds that have managed to better profitability in the last time.My friend’s reasoning is simple: If the investment funds, which usually have a very qualified specialists team and probably handled information privileged quasi, invest in certain enterprises, it is likely that they have a high potential for profitability. For those who act as my friend, probably, a strategy that would not be bad is the attention to those papers in which investment funds observed a potential growth in a medium to long term. Thus, investing in papers with longer-term growth potential, the inverter may acquire them until the best of its growth has passed. There are two very interesting companies to invest already. Click here to find out what. What les I commented above arises from a note I read in America economics where he met the Executive Michael Gomez of the bond fund Pimco, who acknowledged that they are investing in sovereign debt of Brazil, because these bonds are the highest in the world and this is a country that is very well managed, does not have an inflation problemIt has a coin between relatively stable and strong. But Pimco has not only set in the Brazilian sovereign bonds, but has also been in the spotlight in three companies in the country, among which is the Companhia Siderurgica Nacional – CSN-(BVSP:CSNA3; NYSE:SID). CSN is the second steel company of Brazil and the first producer of flat steel, which has a capacity of annual production of 5.6 million tons and generated 16,000 direct jobs. The company has international operations, beginning its process of internationalization in 2001 through the purchase in the U.S. Heartland Steel. Leveraging the advantages, the firm operates currently in different market segments such as automotive, civil construction, containers, appliances, among others. After seeing this note, I searched the graph of its SARD to see its evolution, and found that it is observing an upward trend since the beginning of February this year. Papers of the company did not have a good day on yesterday and closed at $22,34, far from US $51, from May 2008. However, the current value of the ADR away lies the growth potential that can reach the company. Depressive economic context, it has been affected by the strong impact of the crisis has been particularly in the sector, but recent signs of global economic recovery hopes increase. The depression of the international scene was reflected in the company’s results during the first quarter of the year. The gross operating profit (EBITDA) of Q1 2009 was 681 million reais ($ 323,3 m), representing a 47% drop compared to figures for the first quarter of 2008. This sharp decline has other extenuating circumstance that CSN is recording a record in 2008, its net profit R $ 5.8 billion (US $2.529 million), double the figures for 2007. On the results of the first quarter of 2009, the brokerage Brascan said in BNamericas: since 2006 have not observed a less than 30% Ebitda margin. The reason for this result for Brascan is: this weakening of the operations is a direct reflection of the low demand for steel products. For the consultant, from such a result will be a gradual and continuous improvement every month demand that recompose the results of the signature. The expected recovery in demand for steels represents good news for the prospects of profitability of the company to which is added the decision to impose tariff measures the Brazilian Government and the end of a dispute which maintained with Vale (sao:VALE3; NYSE: VALE). Recently in Brazil decided measures tariff on steel imports that have a positive effect on the companies in the country, as CSN. Lula’s Government decided to cede to the pressures of the local industry, reimposing tariffs ranging from 12% to 14% on imported steel products. These had been eliminated in 2005. Last may, CSN managed to finish a dispute initiated by the exploitation of the mine stone house, in a negotiation than with benefits for both in 2000 by Vale, and according to which shall be at the discretion of Vale suspend or definitively cancel a contract until end of this year, to buy ore produced by Casa da Pedra. The agreement foresees also the supply by Vale of up to 3 million metric tons of pellets of iron to CSN between 2009 and 2014. In what refers to the company’s strategy in these times of crisis, it has prioritized kept liquid at least until uncertainty in the markets. In this sense, CSN made a strategic sale of 40% of the shares of national ore S.A. – Namisa- (Brazilian production company of iron ore, a subsidiary of Siderurgica CSN), to a consortium with companies in Japan and South Korea. In the same line of maintaining financial strength for this year, and considering the weakness of demand that will see a slow and gradual recovery and that will limit the volume of income, CSN has limited their investment projects to the continuity of which are already underway. At the moment, CSN has postponed the project of entering the market of long steels (the specialty of CSN are flat steels), scheduled for 2010. The construction of two new steel, one in Itaguai (Rio de Janeiro) and another in Mina Gerais was also postponed. Yes it was confirmed the continuity of investments for the construction of a cement factory. Perhaps one might think that the decision to postpone investments in steel sector represents a step backwards for the company. However this is not so since global demand is very depressed and will take a long time to resume normal, so it is not advisable on installed production capacity to expand to a current oversupply for the situation. Test of excess capacity of existing production at the global level, a friend of mine who works in a steel leader in Argentina, told me in China around 90% of steel plants are stopped, given the weak demand. Thus, in the immediate term, this Siderurgica argentina benefited from demand for steel from China that exceeds the production carried out active plants, but this situation is not sustainable in the medium term since many plants that are inactive like these from China will restart with the recovery of the global economy. To synthesize, Pimco sees a company that is well positioned in a market that while it is depressed, is in its phase of gradual recovery in CSN. On the other hand, the business strategy of the company allowed to speed recovery of their profitability compared to other companies in the sector.
