Law / Economics Driving Politics
« on: February 25, 2013, 12:38:39 PM »
In other countries, the causal direction will run primarily from economics to politics. In Egypt and Greece, for example, rising poverty, high unemployment, and financial turmoil could place governments under pressure. Popular frustration may not wait for the ballot box. Instead, hard times could fuel civil unrest, threatening their governments’ legitimacy, credibility, and effectiveness – and with no obvious alternatives that could ensure rapid economic recovery and rising living standards.

In China, the credibility of the incoming leadership will depend in large part on whether the economy can consolidate its soft landing. Specifically, any prolonged period of sub-7 percent growth could encourage opposition and dissent – not only in the countryside, but also in urban centres.

Then there is Germany, which holds the key to the integrity and unity of the eurozone. So far, Chancellor Angela Merkel has been largely successful in insulating the German economy from the turmoil elsewhere in Europe. Unemployment has remained remarkably low and confidence relatively high. And, while growth has moderated recently, Germany remains one of Europe’s best-performing economies – and not just its paymaster.

While some would have favoured greater policy activism, Merkel’s Germany has provided a steady anchor for a eurozone struggling to end bouts of financial instability and put an end to questions about its survival as a well-functioning monetary union (one that aspires to becoming much more). A change in German leadership would, therefore, raise questions about Europe’s policy underpinning.

With an election looming in Italy, the country’s technocratic interim administration will return the reins of power to a democratically elected government. The question, both for Italy and Europe as a whole, is whether the new government will maintain the current economic policy stance or shift to one that is less acceptable to the country’s external partners (particularly Germany and the European Central Bank).

Monti may or may not be involved in the new government. The further removed from it he is, the greater the temptation will be to alter the policy approach in response to popular pressures. This would involve less emphasis on fiscal and structural reforms, raising concerns in Berlin, Brussels, and Frankfurt.

Japan’s incoming government has already signalled an economic-policy pivot, relying on what it directly controls (fiscal policy), together with pressure on the Bank of Japan, to relax the monetary-policy stance, in an effort to generate faster growth and higher inflation. In the process, officials are weakening the yen. They will also try to lower Japan’s dependence on exports and rethink sending production facilities to lower-wage countries.

The economic impact of politics in the US, while important, will be less dynamic: absent a more cooperative Congress, politics will mute policy responses rather than fuel greater activism. Continued congressional polarization would maintain policy uncertainty, confound debt and deficit negotiations, and impede economic growth. From stymieing medium-term fiscal reforms to delaying needed overhauls of the labour and housing markets, congressional dysfunction would keep US economic performance below its capacity; over time, it would also eat away at potential output.

Law / Will Politics Continue To Dominate The World Economy In 2013?
« on: February 25, 2013, 12:35:36 PM »
How politics and economics interact nationally and globally is one of the important questions for 2013 and beyond. There are three scenarios: good economics and effective politics provide the basis for a growing and more cooperative global economy; bad economics interact with dysfunctional politics to ruin the day; or the world muddles through, increasingly unstable, as a tug of war between economics and politics plays out, with no clear result or direction.

NEWPORT BEACH – Watching America’s leaders scramble in the closing days of 2012 to avoid a “fiscal cliff” that would plunge the economy into recession was yet another illustration of an inconvenient truth: messy politics remains a major driver of economic developments.

In some cases during 2012, politics was a force for good: consider Prime Minister Mario Monti’s ability to pull Italy back from the brink of financial turmoil. But, in other cases, like Greece, political dysfunction aggravated economic problems.

Close and defining linkages between politics and economics are likely to persist in 2013. Having said this, we should also expect much greater segmentation in terms of impact – and that the consequences will affect both individual countries and the global system as a whole.

In some countries – for example, Italy, Japan, and the United States – politics will remain the primary driver of economic-policy approaches. But elsewhere – China, Egypt, Germany, and Greece come to mind – the reverse will be true, with economics becoming a key determinant of political outcomes.

This duality in causation speaks to a world that will become more heterogeneous in 2013 – and in at least two ways: it will lack unifying political themes, and it will be subject to multi-speed growth and financial dynamics that imply a range of possible scenarios for multilateral policy interactions.

Hong Kong has edged out the United States and the United Kingdom, for the first time, to come out tops in the World Economic Forum’s Financial Development Index.

According to the Geneva-based non-governmental organisation, Hong Kong is also the first Asian country to top the scoreboard, in the WEF’s annual report released Tuesday.

Launched in 2008, the ranking is based on efficiency and size of banking and other financial services, the business environment and financial stability amongst other things.

It is also the first time neither the United States nor the United Kingdom took the top spot since the WEF began the survey four years ago.

The United States fell to second place while the United Kingdom settled for third place, mainly caused by a decline in its initial public offering activity and securitisation.

"While Western financial centres are understandably focused on short-term challenges, this report should serve as a wake-up call that their long-term leadership may be in jeopardy," Kevin Steinberg of the WEF said.

Hong Kong jumped three spots to get to the top, boosted by high scores in the non-banking financial services segment such as IPOs and insurance.

With the exception of Japan, the rest of Asia came through the 2008 financial crisis with relatively little damage. But for the second time in less than four years, the region now faces another major external demand shock, which could turn a mild recession into something far worse.
Can Asia Overcome Its Vulnerability To The European Crisis? : Stephen Roach

Will Asia Find Shelter From The Storm?

NEW HAVEN – Asian authorities were understandably smug in the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008-2009. Growth in the region slowed sharply, as might be expected of export-led economies confronted with the sharpest collapse in global trade since the 1930’s. But, with the notable exception of Japan, which suffered its deepest recession of the modern era, Asia came through an extraordinarily tough period in excellent shape.

That was then. For the second time in less than four years, Asia is being hit with a major external demand shock. This time it is from Europe, where a raging sovereign-debt crisis threatens to turn a mild recession into something far worse: a possible Greek exit from the euro, which could trigger contagion across the eurozone. This is a big deal for Asia.

Financial and trade linkages make Asia highly vulnerable to Europe’s malaise. Owing to the former, the risks to Asia from a European banking crisis cannot be taken lightly. Lacking well-developed capital markets as an alternative source of credit, bank-funding channels are especially vital in Asia.

Indeed, the Asian Development Bank estimates that European banks fund about 9 percent of total domestic credit in developing Asia – three times the share of financing provided by banks based in the United States. The role of European banks is especially significant in Singapore and Hong Kong – the region’s two major financial centres. That means that Asia is far more exposed to an offshore banking crisis today than it was in the aftermath of Lehman Brothers’ collapse in 2008, which led to a near-meltdown of the US banking system.

Either Hong Kong, Shanghai or Singapore will replace London as the world’s most dominant financial centres by 2022, claimed a survey of 450 U.K.-based bankers on Sunday, with nearly 31 percent of the respondents choosing Singapore as their most favoured location to work.

The poll, conducted by recruitment firm Astbury Marsden, indicated that the Western financial centres, namely New York and London, were quickly losing their appeal to investment bankers, with a deluge of financial restrictions expected in the near future due to a series of recent high-profile banking scandals.

"Financial centres in the West have taken a real battering since the start of the financial crisis," said Astbury Marsden’s Chief Operating Officer Mark Cameron, as cited by Reuters.

"A fast growing, low tax and bank friendly environment like Singapore stands as a perfect antidote to the comparatively high tax and anti-banker sentiment of London and New York," he added.

Asia, as a whole, has witnessed tremendous growth in the past decades and city-states such as Hong Kong and Singapore have since joined the ranks of advanced economies. Asian giants are not only home to the largest number of millionaires in the world; Asian millionaires are also becoming increasingly wealthier. With US and European economics stuck in doldrums, could it be Asia’s turn to shine now?

Two recent speeches featured on the Monetary Authority of Singapore website give a pretty good indication of the momentum building up in Asia's desire to become a global financial super centre. By comparison with the established centers in the West, such as the City of London or Wall Street, Asia suffers from being a highly fragmented "zone". Indeed, it is so fragmented that it barely qualifies to be considered a zone, despite all the hype about the shift of financial power from West to East. The lack of a pan-Asian settlements infrastructure, the absence of a pan-Asian bond market and capital controls scattered like confetti across the region, all speak of the infancy of the Asian bloc by comparison with its Western rivals. However, it will not be ever thus, and things are changing fast.

Speaking on the occasion of the opening of the second Raffles Tower in Singapore (Raffles Tower One, opened in 1988, is still the third tallest building in Singapore) Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam spoke both of the rising affluence of Asia's middle classes and of the opportunities for Asian banks: "Asian banks, which are moderately leveraged, largely deposit-funded and generally conservative in lending, have in recent times, stepped-up their financing activities. As traditional European lenders continue to deleverage, there are opportunities in corporate funding, trade finance and infrastructure finance which Asian banks are well placed to take hold of."

As U.S. and European markets continue to sputter amid the global economic uncertainty, emerging market bonds in Asia have been quietly gaining favour as alternative safe havens – with relatively strong security, yet attractive yields. Experts however are worried whether a massive surge of money may end in a crash; though, for the moment at least, Asian sovereign bonds are showing surprising resilience.
Asian Sovereign Bonds: The New ‘Safe Havens’?

Can The Asian Bond Market Provide Shelter From The Global Financial Storm?

Asian bond markets still have some way to go to achieve the levels of the US and European bond markets, but according to a recent paper by three Bank of International Settlements (BIS) economists, they are already being regarded by investors as something of a "safe haven" in difficult times.

The BIS view is supported by data from the US research house EPFR Global. It found that funds focused on Asian emerging market bonds attracted some $14.4 billion in the first quarter of 2012, by comparison with just under $2 billion last year.

And according to a CNBC report, the average yield on a local bond benchmark such as the HSBC Asian Local Currency Bond Index is between 4-5 percent. This is a very attractive yield at a time when US Treasuries are yielding below 0.6 percent and the yield is all the more attractive when you consider the very benign government debt position of some emerging markets.

CNBC points out that Indonesia's public debt amounts to less than 25 percent of GDP while a good deal of its growth is driven by strong domestic consumer demand rather than by exports. The Indonesian rupiah 10-year bond pays some 6.05 percent, for example.

The BIS report, by the Bank's chief economist, Ken Miyajima, and two of his colleagues, M. S. Mohanty and Tracy Chan, starts from the premise that what were once considered to be safe assets, such as US treasuries, or UK and German bonds, are no longer viewed as either particularly safe or particularly rewarding, by large numbers of investors.

This means that the pool of "safe haven" assets is shrinking dramatically and investors are having to think laterally and to look elsewhere. In the hunt for yield plus security, these disillusioned investors have discovered the local Asian bond markets and are piling in. As a result, these bond markets are now paralleling established "safe haven" markets in the way they perform through crises, and are showing surprising resilience.

Microsoft has been in business, in one form or another, for 37 years. In the tech world, that's an eternity.

Which isn't to say Microsoft has remained static over that time. Regulatory pressures, strategic shifts in software and hardware, the rise of new breeds of competitors such as Google and Amazon have ensured that Microsoft isn't remotely the same company it was just 10 years ago. Give it another five years, and Microsoft could be doubly unrecognizable -- especially considering its current crossroads.

It's tempting to say the past five years has seen Microsoft's desktop-centric strategy slowly give way to a pell-mell free-for-all made up of equal parts desktop, server, mobile hardware and software, cloud services, and auxiliary systems like the Xbox. Truth is, intention has always been present. It's only now, thanks to major upheavals in consumer tech and the cloud, that Microsoft's broad-spectrum plays are becoming more evident and critical.

Make no mistake: Redmond has always had a foot in multiple territories. This time around, cohering its strategy in these disparate areas could mean a major transfiguration of one of the few technology companies that can never be counted out.

Here's a look at the sweeping challenges Microsoft will face and how the company will need to respond to maintain its relevance in the years ahead.

Microsoft Windows: The future is hybrid
Any bellwether of Microsoft's long-term evolution would have to be found in its flagship product: desktop Windows. If the latest iteration of Windows surfaces anything about a latent strategy coming to the fore, it can be summed up in one word: hybridize.

In the time since Microsoft released Windows 7, the personal-computing market has been upended. PC sales are down, phone and tablet sales are up, and it has never been more evident that a full-blown desktop tower -- or even a clamshell notebook -- is no longer necessary to stay connected.

Microsoft's response has been twofold. First, create a new version of Windows in the short run (Windows 8), and power it with a new set of programming APIs (Windows Runtime, or WinRT) aimed at the long run. Second, equip the OS with an interface suited for low-power, touchscreen devices, the hottest-selling form factor for personal computing.

Andrew Brust, founder and CEO of analyst firm Blue Badge Insights, puts it this way: "In terms of spanning the desktop and touch-first worlds, it's clearly the only logical choice Microsoft had. They have an existing (and huge) customer base and an existing (and huge) ecosystem of software. They need to service those customers and be compatible with that software, and they also need to forge into tablet territory. They're doing what they must. The question is whether it will work."

So far, the payoff has been mixed at best. Sales of Windows 8 have been slow, with adoption projected to resemble Windows Vista more than Windows 7 -- although Windows 8 is making a better show than Vista did in its first months of release. Enterprises don't have much interest in Windows 8 either -- they're only now catching up with Windows 7 anyway, while Windows XP's support window is nearing its close for good. And complaints about the Modern UI side of Windows 8 are legion, since it takes away about as much as it adds in.

Nutrition and Food Engineering / When You Must Go For Alternative Medicine
« on: February 23, 2013, 04:45:14 PM »
With the increasing number of people affected by newly discovered chronic degenerative diseases such as AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome. Many people are wondering that, will it be always possible to maintain good health? How to provide your body what it needs to function properly?

What will you do when conventional medicine is becoming more complicated and costly and in some cases simply ineffective?

More and more people are turning to alternative medicine and natural medicine – simple, traditional low-tech methods of disease prevention and solving everyday health problems.
Alternative Medicine

Alternative Medicine

What to do if you or someone in your family gets sick again and again?

Even traditional doctors have begun to recommend natural drug-less therapies’ to treat both everyday complaints and serious illnesses. Changes in diet, for example, has become the weapon of choice against a number of diseases that have been treated mainly with prescription drugs a generation ago.

It is now known that many diseases are caused by the wrong diet and can be reversed by diet. Heart disease, cancer, weight problems, arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure – all of which can be addressed to some degree with change in food and diet.

Natural therapies found in alternative medicine are actually much older than Western treatments such as surgeries and antibiotics. Experts says that herbal remedies and Ayurveda are the traditional medicine of India that has been around for more than 5,000 years.

Many alternative medicine remedies began with scientific research or clinical impressions reported by physicians working with safe and natural substances. But we live in a generation that has been cut from this ancient tradition.

While doctors and other professionals are indeed great to have around, what is not so great when you can not do anything without them.

Should not we be able to do something to save our health, maybe even our lives, without a doctor?

What happens when medical help is not readily available?

What happens when doctoring simply does not work?

Some of us go to doctor after doctor, and still no help. Is that the end of the line?

While antibiotics have saved millions of lives, But have not really solved some resurgence of germs that are appearing in new forms that do not respond to conventional therapies.

There has been a real change in the way people think about their health. Rising cost of health care is a factor in the recent surge of interest in alternative medicine. Many people are attracted to the alternative physicians as they emphasis on treating the whole person – body, mind and spirit.

The most important thing is that some physicians use intensive counseling to help patients find out aspects of their daily lives, such as work stress, relationship problems, diet or sleeping habits could be behind your symptoms.

One of the main goals of alternative medicine and natural healing is to break the cycle of dependency and allow people to have more control of their own lives.

If you have diabetes knowledge about how to handle your condition is a key to your well being.

If you don’t take care of your feet, you run the risk of developing wounds or infections that could, in the worst-case situation lead to amputations.

1) Check your feet every day – particularly if you have low responsiveness or no sense in your feet. Wound’s cuts and grazes could go unobserved, and you could develop complications leading to amputations.

2) Don’t walk barefoot, even indoors. It’s easy to step on something or stub your toes and hurt yourself. Cover your feet with socks/stockings and shoes/slippers.

3) Be cautious if you have corns or calluses. Consult with your physician or podiatrist the finest way to care for them.

4) Clean your feet every day in warm, and not hot water. And don’t immerse your feet (even if you’ve been standing whole day) since it might dry your skin and form cracks or sores.

5) Take further attention to dry your feet wholly particularly between your toes. These are typical moisture traps – leaving them moist or damp may produce all sorts of troubles.

6) Exercise your legs and feet routinely. Even when seated you can twist your ankles; shake your toes or move your legs up and down. These will keep your blood flow and helps to reduce the risk of foot inconveniences.

7) Get your feet checked, at least once in few months, for sensitivity and signals of any difficulties. You can generally arrange this when you have your yearly check up for your AC1 level’s blood pressure and cholesterol.

Take continuous care of your feet. Get assistance from a relative, specialist, physician diabetic nurse or podiatrist if you are not able to bow when trimming nails or checking for wounds. Taking these simple steps will help you diminish the risk of miserable problems.
