The best of all possible economic worlds?

Currently, all statistics suggest that the global economy is finally moving in the right direction. If the current trends continue, then the tremendous economic imbalances could be degraded

Although the economic imbalances in the global economy are far from dissolving, right now it seems to go in the right direction. As a reminder: the "common sense" among virtually all the ocons is that the us had to be committed (discussed only the period until when the action has been done) and that europe and asia had to increase consumption and investment in order to increase the global economy necessary decrease the us demand without coarse crises. However, as exporters, such as consumers, benefited from the status quo, was the tendency of economic politicians to take appropriate measures, but so far small and the imbalances achieved more and more threatening discharge.

Apparently, the consumer rush, which the us has gone since the 90s, is now finally deducted. According to the latest economic data of the us ministry of economic affairs, the killing of 2.9 percent of gdp growth appears in 2. Quarter (after stormy 5.4 percent in the previous quarter) but not so abrupt to take place that the stability of the financial markets was danger. At any rate, the current numbers have a hope of hoping: while us imports increased by less than one percent, exports to have fun for funf percent, which was allowed to reflect in a reduction in the current account deficit. The increase in private consumption went from 4.8 percent in the previous quarter to 2.6 percent back and even inflation has turned back. Thus, the frightstep "stagflation" (high inflation in stagnant growth) is currently not talking about. However, the essential point was allowed to be the significant cooling of the real estate market. After all, through all gdp components the strongest rint of investments in residential real estate, which broke 9.8 percent.

International organizations such as the oecd and stunning communities as the eu were already out of line in 1997, which the us supported by the united kingdom.

How self-funky filters depicts on the plain of software companies and providers can be seen in the case of aol and cyber patrol: political one-sidedness

With populist arance, federal minister of justice herta daeller-gmelin wants to better combat crime and right-wing extremism on the internet in order to accelerate the flat enforcement of filters for the german burger. Of course, one seems to be in the delusion, technically all problems can bring to the world. On the internet are the filter or other possibilities how to block access to content.

If one sees once of the question as to whether some neonazi has emerged less due to any ban, the whole line seems to be very questionable, which the federal minister of justice. Since they obviously returned to censance content at the legal level on the internet, this should come from a kind of a voluntary code of conduct of the internet companies and providers.

Basel iii: soft, spat and inadequate

Inadequate financial market regulation lags below the requirements

On sunday, 27 lander in basel has agreed on a compilation of global capital standards for banks. Exactly two years after the collapse of the us investmentbank lehman brothers, the previous low core capital ratio according to basel ii is to rise so that banks are allegedly crisis-resistant. For this, every bank should create an additional buffer. This does not sound so bad at first, but it may be doubted that well-to-do financial crises are prevented. Especially germany pushed himself against the demands of a significantly higher capital ceiling and continued long transitional periods. The entire capital of hedge funds remains excluded anyway, as the trillion, for which the coarse us real estate financiers were found excluded.

Already a look through the blatterwald of the international business press is sufficient to state one thing: one is somewhat consecrated in agreement that basel iii will mitigate the risks from financial crises at best. That’s all. Like the international parquet, despite the dangers in the financial world, which lose the taxpayers for a long time trillion-heavy on the bag, only a tenth and limited answer has been found. Furthermost, it seems to be a success that the previous equity ratio (tier-1) of the banks, ie risk-weighted assets, should increase from 4% to 6%. The minimum capitalization of the banks with hard core capital (core tier-1), to which in addition to the money of the shareholders also pay the profit relief, should even increase from 2% to 4.5%
