RUSSIA, CHINA BLAME WOES ON CAPITALISM – SPEECHES CRITICIZE INAPPROPRIATE POLICIES, FOCUS ON DOLLAR’S ROLE; YET PUTIN SENDS OBAMA CONCILIATORY SIGNAL

The premiers of Russia and China slammed the U.S. economic system in speeches Wednesday, holding it responsible for the global economic crisis.

Both focused on the role of the U.S. dollar, with China’s Premier Wen Jiabao calling for better regulation of major reserve currencies and Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin calling over-reliance on the dollar “dangerous.”

Speaking on the opening day of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, they both urged more international cooperation to escape the downturn. They also talked up the abilities of their own economies to ride out the recession. Mr. Wen said he was “confident” China would hit its 8% growth target for this year even though that was “a tall order.” (See the full text)

The Russian and Chinese leaders also called for cooperation with U.S. President Barack Obama, but it was a chilly reception for the new administration that reflected growing anger in economies that are now getting hit hard by a financial crisis that began with subprime mortgages sold in the U.S.

Mr. Putin was characteristically blunt. He called for the development of multiple, regional reserve currencies in addition to the dollar. “Excessive dependence on a single reserve currency is dangerous for the global economy,” Mr. Putin said. (See the full text)

The Russian leader mocked U.S. businessmen who he said had boasted at last year’s Davos meeting of the U.S. economy’s fundamental strength and “cloudless” prospects. “Today, investment banks, the pride of Wall Street, have virtually ceased to exist,” he said.

Earlier, Mr. Wen called for an expansion of regulatory “coverage of the international financial system, with particular emphasis on strengthening the supervision on major reserve currencies.”

While Mr. Wen never named the U.S., his critique of its failings was as sweeping as Mr. Putin’s. The financial crisis, he said, was “attributable to inappropriate macroeconomic policies of some economies and their unsustainable model of development characterized by prolonged low savings and high consumption; excessive expansion of financial institutions in blind pursuit of profit” – and other excesses.

“The entire economic growth system, where one regional center prints money without respite and consumes material wealth, while another regional centre manufactures inexpensive goods … has suffered a major setback,” Mr. Putin said.

Mr. Wen’s comments came just days after U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner accused China of manipulating its currency for economic gain. The Chinese premier gently, but firmly warned that if Washington and Beijing chose confrontation, both would be losers.

But the different tones of the two speeches, and the fact that Mr. Wen didn’t call for replacing the dollar’s role as the world’s reserve currency but regulating it, reflect crucial differences in the important emerging economies.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Treasury Department declined to comment on the remarks in the speeches. The White House did not respond to requests for comment.

Many of the attendees at Davos took the remarks from Mr. Putin and Mr. Wen in stride. “The sad thing is is that we might have scoffed at this a while ago. But we really dragged the world down” economically, Alan Blinder, former vice chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, said in an interview after the speeches.

The rapid collapse of oil and commodities prices has hit Russia hard on top of the ripples of the financial crisis. The government now forecasts the economy will shrink for the first time in a decade this year, after growing 6% last year.

“In a very real sense Russia has been kicked to the margins, while China has become pivotal to any resolution of the financial crisis,” says Bob Lo, Director of the Russia and China programs at the Center for European Reform in London.

Mr. Putin’s government has spent $200 billion of hard currency reserves to defend the Russian currency, the ruble. It has spent as much again in a bailout package that amounts to 15% of gross domestic product, one of the largest responses to the financial crisis in the world. Unlike China, Russia’s economy is too dependent on commodities exports and too small to play a significant role in any global recovery, says Mr. Lo.

Russia also has negligible trade with the U.S., while Chinese exports are heavily dependent on U.S. consumers and Beijing holds $2 trillion in U.S. debt, prompting a much more cautious approach towards Washington and the dollar in Beijing.

The net effect of falling oil prices and the downturn, however, has been to make Russia more vulnerable and the Kremlin weaker, analysts say. Russian officials have begun to send out more conciliatory signals to the new U.S. administration.

“We wish the new team success,” Mr Putin said Wednesday, calling on it to cooperate.

China, too, is suffering from the downturn. Many independent economists, including economists at the International Monetary Fund, question whether Beijing will be able to meet its 8% growth target this year.

Developed nations are increasingly calling for China to do more to stimulate its own economy. On Wednesday, Mr. Wen gave a detailed account of the four trillion yuan ($585 billion) investment program China announced in November. “As a big responsible country” China was actively boosting domestic, and particularly consumer demand, said Mr. Wen.

The headline sum in the program would likely be equivalent to around 3% of gross domestic product in 2009 and 2010. But even government officials aren’t promising that much of a boost to the economy. Zhang Ping, the head of the National Development and Reform Commission, in November estimated it would add about one percentage point to GDP growth this year and next.

That may have seemed like a lot at the time, but expectations for global and Chinese growth have rapidly deteriorated since then. Mr. Wen said growth slowed to 6.8% in the fourth quarter from the same period a year earlier. That’s a little more than half the 13% gain in 2007, at the height of the boom. Some economists believe China could grow by as little as 5% this year, too little to provide jobs for the graduates flooding into the labor market from Chinese universities and schools each year and a further drag on the global economy.

Less noticed in Mr. Geithner’s repetition of Mr. Obama’s campaign-trail assertion that China “manipulates” its currency last week was his argument that the long U.S.-Chinese dispute over currency didn’t matter as much as getting China to do more to boost its economic growth.

“Given the crisis the immediate focus needs to be on the broader issue of stabilizing domestic demand in China and the U.S.,” Mr. Geithner said in his written response to questions during his Senate confirmation process. “A further slowdown in China would lead to a substantial fall in world growth (and demand for U.S. exports) and delay recovery from the crisis.”

HEDGEHOGS RAVAGED BY BEARS

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on January 29, 2009

Feb. 2, 2009

BARTON BIGGS

The equity markets of the world have many afflictions, but one of the most debilitating is the plague being experienced by the hedgehogs (a.k.a. hedge funds). Bright, young, bushy-tailed hedgehogs are dying right and left, and fatter, older, more experienced members of the species are starving and sickly. The irony is that hedge funds didn’t do all that badly last year. The Hennessee Hedge Fund Index was off 19.2 percent, although the average fund lost more like 25 to 27 percent. By contrast, the S&P 500 fell 37 percent, the MSCI All County World Index was down 42 percent and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index fell 53 percent. Still, hedge funds failed to do what they promise: to protect their clients’ assets in a bear market.

We live in extravagant times. In January 2008 there were about 8,000 hedge funds worldwide running about $2 trillion of investor money. As the dust settles, the best guess is that about 2,000 hedge funds have gone out of business and another 2,000 will disappear in the next year. Ravaged by killer bear markets as well as a deluge of redemptions, the total capital run by hedge funds today is now about $1.2 trillion, according to Hennessee.

In the good old days, hedge funds were the most active investors; their $2 trillion was leveraged up to $8 trillion—the size of the U.S. equity market today. Things have changed. At a conference in London last week, Morgan Stanley said that at the beginning of 2008,65 to 70 percent of its institutional equity business in Europe was from hedge funds and only 30 percent was from traditional investment management firms. Now, the percentages are reversed. At this same conference, one of the largest funds of hedge funds in the world said that the net long positions of the 135 hedge funds in its portfolio was now 10 percent (i.e., only 10 percent of the fund’s capital was exposed to the market), and that the funds were less leveraged than ever.

The plague is likely to continue. The three classes of investors that dominate hedge-fund money are the fund of funds (FOFs), institutional investors (endowments, foundations, pension funds) and wealthy individuals. All three categories are scared to death, experiencing unprecedented liquidity squeezes, and deeply concerned about not the return on their money but the return of their money.

The FOFs, which now account, according to Hennessee, for 32 percent of hedge-rand assets, had in the past decade been the biggest winners in the entire investment-management business, with their assets growing 25 percent a year. Now suddenly they are suffering an epidemic of redemptions. A year ago they were 40 percent of assets. Fjven before the Madoff affair, their clients were questioning whether the extra fees they pay were worth it, since they were not being protected from losses. The Madoff Ponzi scheme and the FOFs’ involvement with Madoff was a brutal blow. In addition, many FOFs had leveraged up their portfolios to maximize their returns for competitive reasons. Instead they maximized their losses. The big institutional investors are also having a horrendous time. Many of them switched from a highly liquid asset-allocation strategy of stocks, bonds and cash to the so-called Endowment Model, which trivialized bonds, minimized listed equities and maximized so-called alternative assets (hedge funds, private equity, real estate and oil and gas partnerships). The managers of all these asset classes charge very high fees and rely on large amounts of debt to leverage up returns. Now, the debt money is simply not available. Meanwhile, global economic weakness is ravaging private equity, with real estate close behind. Many big institutions have been using the gains in their endowment portfolios for the funding of current operations. They are now faced with either sharply cutting operating budgets or selling investment assets. Charitable organizations and educational institutions are hurting big time. Harvard (one that has funded a major part of its operating budget from its endowment) has been dumping its private-equity stakes at 50 to 80 percent discounts, and recently raised money by issuing bonds. Pension funds, too, need cash. There is a desperate scramble for liquidity, which may force institutional investors to redeem from their large hedge-fund stakes.

As for individuals, they are just plain terrified from the wealth destruction they have suffered in the past year.

Does all this spell another horrendous year for the stock markets as a tsunami of forced selling overwhelms the great valuations that exist in many blue-chip stocks? Not necessarily, although it is a risk to bear in mind. I’m bullish because I’m a value investor. Stocks are dirt cheap, and I think that at some point this year we’re going to have a massive rally. But whatever happens to stock markets, the hedge-fund industry in the future will be much smaller, far less leveraged and have considerably lower fees. Hedge-fund and private-equity managers have been among the most overcompensat-ed executives in the history of the world. The golden years are over and gone, and I must admit the world will not be diminished by their passing.

U.S. FEDERAL RESERVE STRUGGLES TO REVIVE ECON GROWTH

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on January 28, 2009

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Agence France-Presse

PUBLISHED BY ‘THE MANILA TIMES’ (Philippines)

WASHINGTON, D.C.: The US Federal Reserve wraps up a two-day policy meeting Wednesday focused on new tools to revive a moribund economy that has so far failed to respond to its zero-interest rate policy.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting was being held six weeks after the central bank slashed its base-lending rate to a range of zero to 0.25 percent and predicted “exceptionally low” rates to persist.

An announcement was due around 1915 GMT Wednesday.

Joseph Balestrino at Federated Investors said he expected some clues from the Fed on additional efforts to get credit flowing in the economy.

“There’s not much more the central bank can do on the monetary policy front after having lowered its target federal funds rate to a record low,” he said.

“What may be worth noting is the language the Fed uses to describe the state of an economy that, since the two-day meeting that ended December 16, appears to have worsened on most every front.”

Balestrino said Fed chairman Ben Bernanke and his colleagues “are likely to be more explicit about their plans for quantitative easing—that is, using measures such as direct injections into banks and purchases of debt securities to pump more capital into ailing institutions and the markets.”

Sacha Tihanyi, analyst at Scotia Capital, said the market expects the Fed to take further action to help fire up growth.

“With rates going nowhere for some time, the market’s focus will be on whether the Fed will be looking to buy government—or corporate—securities in the near future,” Tihanyi said.

“This is a highly controversial step and some see this as somewhat of a high-risk policy but on the other hand, it is one of the few avenues the Fed has left open to it with regard to further easing monetary conditions.”

Despite the zero-rate policy, Bernanke and others have repeatedly said the central bank is not out of ammunition to fight the crisis. But Bernanke avoided the use of the term “quantitative easing,” saying the Fed has engaged in what he called “credit easing” to spur more lending activity.

The Fed “has already done a lot and will continue to do a lot” in addition to moving on interest rates, said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight.

The central bank has already offered exceptional aid to banks and other firms, and has been buying up mortgage-backed bonds and commercial paper to help unfreeze credit in those areas.

Analysts say this has helped somewhat but that credit markets remain under stress, with lenders and consumers skittish about taking on new risks.

Morgan Stanley economist Ted Wieseman said he expected nothing dramatic from the Fed meeting.

“Obviously rates have already been cut about as low as they can go,” he said.

“If long-end [Treasury bond] yields continue surging higher, the Fed will undoubtedly eventually step in and start buying, but such an announcement probably wouldn’t come in an FOMC statement.”

Economist Joseph LaVorgna at Deutsche Bank said the Fed might not yet be ready for direct purchases of US Treasuries.

“Even though we believe the Fed will eventually be forced to purchase Treasuries in an attempt to cap their yields we do not believe the Fed is going to announce those intentions today,” he said.

He said some members might be uncomfortable with what could be seen as a drastic step.

“Rather, we expect the Fed to repeat the ‘committee is evaluating the potential benefits of purchasing longer-term Treasury securities.’”

Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James & Associates, said each word of the Fed statement would be weighed and parsed carefully.

“The wording of the policy statement will signal future intentions,” he said.

“In each statement, the Fed describes its economic outlook. A darkening in that outlook would likely mean that further stimulus efforts are coming. A brighter outlook would suggest that policy will become less accommodative.”

OBAMA COMMITTED TO ‘GREEN’ ECONOMY (USA)

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on January 28, 2009

by Xinhua

PUBLISHED BY ‘THE MANILA TIMES’ (Philippines)

LOS ANGELES: The Obama administration is pushing forward with plans to aggressively limit greenhouse gas emissions PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMAand fight global warming, US media reported.

The plans would include a cap-and-trade initiative to limit greenhouse gases and raise the cost of pumping more carbon into the atmosphere, the Los Angeles Times said Sunday (Monday in Manila).

Under the initiative, the government would set limits on carbon emissions by power plants, factories and other installations, but allow those who emit more to buy or trade permits with companies and facilities that emitted less than the prescribed limit, according to the newspaper.

But the move would amount to a tax, raising energy costs. And several independent studies have suggested that emissions limits would only increase energy price and be a drag on economic growth, at least in the short term.

Despite such fears, the Obama government believed that a “clean energy economy” move would spur competition and promote investment in renewable alternatives to imported oil.

Two-pronged plan

The administration is expected to move forward with a two-pronged effort to stimulate renewable energy supplies and ensure demand for the megawatts they would produce, the newspaper reported.

The first part is to invest heavily in wind power, solar power and biofuels through the massive stimulus bill, while the second is to help those forms of energy compete with cheaper fossil fuels by pumping up fossil fuel costs to reflect the potential economic damage from global warming, according to the paper.

“If we don’t put a price on carbon,” said Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee. “We’ll never get these clean energy sources on line.”

Instead of dragging the economy, the plan to limit greenhouse emissions would stimulate the economy and “allow polluters to transition from a high-polluting environment to a low-polluting environment,” said Andy Stevenson, a former hedge fund manager who is now a finance advisor for the Natural Resources Defense Council in New York City.

STATE FARM TO STOP PROVIDING PROPERTY INSURANCE (USA)

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on January 28, 2009

by Russel Ray – The Tampa Tribune

PUBLISHED BY ‘THE TAMPA BAY ONLINE’ (USA)

State Farm, the STATE FARM INSURANCEsecond-largest property insurer in Florida, said today that it will stop providing property insurance statewide, a move that would affect more than 1 million policyholders.

State Farm’s plan to drop policyholders was submitted to the Office of Insurance Regulation, which has 90 days to review the proposal.

“Nothing will happen until that review is complete,” said State Farm spokesman Chris Neal.

The plan calls for dropping policyholders over a two-year period beginning in November. State Farm has nearly 100,000 homeowner policies in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

The move comes two weeks after Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty rejected State Farm’s request to raise rates 47 percent on average statewide.

State Farm said operating costs have risen along with the number of claims. What’s more, the insurer said state-mandated discounts for homeowners who strengthen their homes against hurricanes have slashed the company’s revenues.

“This is not an action we wanted to take, but one we must take given the realities of the Florida property insurance market,” Jim Thompson, president of State Farm Florida, said in a statement. “We regret the impact this will have on our customers, employees and agents in Florida.”

Kevin McCarty

The move comes after Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty recently rejected State Farm’s request to raise rates 47 percent on average statewide.

The cancellation of more than 1 million policies could deepen Florida’s insurance crisis and is sure to increase the policy count at state-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp., the state’s so-called insurer of last resort and the largest property insurer in the state.

“We have been hearing for months of possible plans to make such a move in Florida,” McCarty said in a statement. “I will do everything within my power to protect Florida consumers from unnecessary destabilization of the insurance market that this might cause.”

FUGITIVE INVESTOR (ARTHUR NADEL) TURNS HIMSELF IN

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on January 28, 2009

TAMPA – Arthur Nadel, the hedge fund manager from Sarasota who disappeared recently, turned himself in Tuesday, an FBI spokesman said.

Before disappearing, Nadel wrote to his wife, instructing her to take money out of credit and other accounts before the authorities blocked access, a criminal complaint states.

The funds Nadel controlled were nearly empty, but Nadel had homes in Sarasota and North Carolina and owned 500 acres of a development in North Carolina and three private planes, the complaint states.

Nadel, 76, surrendered at 9:45 a.m. at the Tampa field office, FBI spokesman Dave Couvertier said. Two lawyers, Barry Cohen and his partner, Todd Foster, were with him.

Nadel appeared in court Tuesday afternoon with shackles on his hands and feet. Several family members, including his wife, sat in the courtroom spectator section but declined to talk to reporters.

Cohen told U.S. Magistrate Mark Pizzo that Nadel is “suffering some emotional problems” and has been “visiting with a psychiatrist the past week.” Nadel wanted to check himself in to a hospital but turned himself in at the insistence of the U.S. attorney’s office, Cohen said.

Cohen didn’t say where Nadel has been the past 13 days but told Pizzo his client “came back when he was notified of a warrant.”

Nadel initially will be prosecuted in the Southern District of New York, said Couvertier, who said the Tampa and New York offices of the FBI are working together. He said Nadel has victims around the world.

A federal criminal complaint out of New York charges Nadel with securities and wire fraud. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years, along with financial penalties.

Nadel is accused of misleading investors by exaggerating the level of money in his investment funds and by inflating their investment returns, according to the U.S. attorney’s office complaint and a similar civil court complaint filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Investigators also allege that Nadel transferred millions of dollars of investors’ money to bank accounts he controlled.

A court-appointed receiver overseeing Nadel’s investment companies says in a court filing that Nadel’s “scheme” dates at least to 2003.

Nadel’s family reported him missing Jan. 14.
