Recent zei Federal Reserve gouverneur Jeremy Stein:
If systemically IMPORTant financial institutions or SIFI, does fail, the losses would fall on its shareholders and creditors, and taxpayers would have no exposure ... Perhaps more to the point for TBTF (too big to fail), if SIFI does fail, I have little doubt that private investors will, in fact, bear the losses -- even if this leads to an outcome that is messier and more costly to society than we would ideally like.
22 april 2013 - De zonne-energie sector is in rep en roer. De douane is borgstellingen gaan eisen bij de IMPORT van zonne-panelen. IMPORTeurs moeten maar liefst 35% van de waarde van de panelen ophoesten willen ze de panelen IMPORTeren.
As we have been warning for a while now, Japan wanted inflation and is certainly getting it, just in all the wrong places.
While Abe has been desperate to transfer the collapse in the yen and the (transitory) surge in the Nikkei to the all IMPORTant increase in wages, and the much sought-after wealth effect, the reality is that corporate input costs are rising far faster than revenues, and wages will be the last thing profit and earnings-conscious companies raise.
History is being written in the East. As the U.S. stays distracted with stone age warriors in Central Asia and the Middle East, the last platform of the American economic foundation, the U.S. Dollar's currency reserve status, is being underminded by their trade partners in Asia. Both Australia and Japan are set to start direct-trading in Chinese currency and they are not the only ones. There are almost 20 countries whom have currency swaps in place with China all in order to side-step the U.S. Dollar in global trade. At the China Money Report, we have written extensively on the "Rise of the Renminbi". What is new and largely unreported and what we will cover in this article is the "Rise of the Petroyuan," as China is now converting its oil IMPORTs into Chinese Yuan as opposed to U.S. Dollars. This will be a new challenge and possibly the fatal blow to the U.S. Dollar as the dominant global reserve currency.

En daar zijn er nog maar een paar kleintjes van over in Europa.
Afgelopen weekend waarschuwde Dennis Gieselaar, directeur van Oskomera Solar Power Solutions in het programma BNR Duurzaam, dat zeker 242.000 banen in de Europese zonne-industrie op de tocht komen te staan door de mogelijke invoering van een IMPORTheffing op Chinese zonnepanelen. Met deze heffing wil de Europese Commissie Europese producenten van zonnepanelen beschermen tegen de concurrentie uit China.
