Miliband to warn on inflation

first_imgSunday 27 February 2011 11:34 pm Miliband to warn on inflation whatsapp whatsapp LABOUR leader Ed Miliband will today warn of a “cost of living crisis” for middle-earners, who he claims will be hit the hardest by looming inflation. Miliband will argue in a speech this morning that a mix of rising prices, spending cuts and benefit changes will make life difficult for middle-income families.In an effort to rekindle Labour’s ties to the “squeezed middle” and capitalise on fears of inflation, Miliband is expected to say that wage freezes risk affecting lower earners long after the broader economy recovers.Miliband will warn that a “British promise… that the next generation would always do better than the last is under threat like never before” in a speech at the Resolution Foundation, a thinktank chaired by Resolution founder Clive Cowdery.The foundation is launching a commission on living standards, which will research the long-term pressures on people with low to middle incomes.The thinktank has already produced data suggesting that average pay in 2015 will be no more than it was in 2003 once inflation has been factored in.“While those at the top have done well, middle and low earners are no longer guaranteed the proceeds of growth,” Miliband is expected to say.“Our economy is increasingly unfair not just for those at the bottom but for many of those in the middle as well.” More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com Tags: NULL KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Sharelast_img read more

Why I just bought Standard Life Aberdeen and Mitie Group shares

first_img  I am looking to make my cash work for me and, given current bank interest rates on savings, I am looking for companies where they offer the possibility of a good dividend and the potential for capital appreciation. When the markets turned down last March, even sound companies were hurt. But those who were digesting takeovers, or were in any way fragile, were unmercifully pummelled by nervous and over anxious investors. Let’s look at two shares that I have just purchased.The first was founded in 1825 – Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) – and provides asset management services. The company offers investment solutions and funds, long-term savings and investment products to individual and corporate customers, and life insurance and savings products. It also makes real estate investments.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…DividendsIts dividend yield last year was 7.24%, which makes it very attractive to me as an income share. It is expected to be 6% this year and is normally paid at the end of May. For your information, the record date for the next dividend payment will be around the beginning of April. If you are a shareholder on this date, you are entitled to the forthcoming dividend.Rupert Hargraves of this parish spoke highly of Standard Life in December, and he offered some compelling arguments that this would be its year. These included the fact that the new CEO, Stephen Bird, seemed to be getting to grips with the relatively recently merged entities, Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management.Growth potentialAnother company that has had indigestion issues with a takeover is Mitie Group (LSE: MTO). The company was founded in 1987 and, through its through its subsidiaries, provides strategic outsourcing services in the United Kingdom and internationally. It acquired Interserve’s facilities management business and had a rights issue to reduce debt levels. The share price fell from 80p to nearly 35p this past year.Kirsteen Mackay covered the price plunge at the time, and highlighted the potential upside once the dust settled. Investors who bought at that point would be up 20% now.In late November 2020, Mitie revealed that while profits and revenues fell in the first half, they were profitable. “Our financial performance in the first six months of the year proved more resilient than expected with a much improved second quarter,” Chief Executive Officer Phil Bentley said.A great sign of confidence is the fact that senior executives have been buying at the 43p mark (at this moment, Mitie shares are trading at 42p). After all, they know how well they are doing on a day-to-day basis.

German voting — Who won, who lost?

first_imgBerlin Bulletin No. 108, March 16 — Although readers in the United States and elsewhere are watching voting results there with bated breath, it is worth taking a look at Germany’s elections on March 13 — far from pleasant but very important all the same,  and not only for Germany! Only three of the 16 states voted; the national election is not due until 2017.  But if the present trends continue — watch out!U.S. American readers, with two big parties and only a few small splinters, may find it hard to follow six parties here. That number of rivals makes it almost impossible for any one party to gain  a  full majority in the legislature (and it’s the same on a national basis). This means that two or three parties must agree to govern together in a coalition, splitting the number of cabinet seats according to strength, with the strongest party taking the top post.Nationally, Angela Merkel and the two “Christian” sister parties (one in Bavaria is separate) have joined with their old rival Social Democrats (SPD), leaving Greens and the LINKE (left) in opposition. This can be very different on the state level, and on March 13 it became more different and difficult than ever, and mostly worse.Each of the three elections had a different winner. In two states, the Greens barely squeaked past the five percent hurdle needed to get any seats in a legislature. But in more prosperous Baden-Wurttemberg, with Daimler-Benz and its glamorous Mercedes, untouched (as yet) by emission scandals, the Green minister-president (like a U.S. governor of a state) triumphed again! On the right edge of his party, which is generally moving rightward, he  remains very popular with his gruff, jovial manner. Somehow he has style! All other older parties suffered (except for the reborn Free Democrats).As for the once proud SPD, it failed more miserably than ever before in two states, getting only between 10 and 13 percent. But one single result was a bright spot in their gloom. In far western Rhineland-Palatinate, known for wonderful vineyards and less wonderful U.S. military bases, they won a neck-and-neck race between two very adept women. The very attractive, very nasty Christian Democrat, who attacked her own party leader Merkel on the refugee question, lost out to her very popular rival, who will now govern — but may have to invite her rival to join her as a junior partner.Merkel’s Christian Democrats, owing to her welcome to the waves of immigrants, have been speedily slithering downhill; briefly, even her rule seemed to be threatened. That seems to be past, but her party suffered tough defeats in the states mentioned above. As a mild consolation, they kept their long lasting lead in the East German state of Saxony-Anhalt, though their previous partners, the SPD, lost so heavily that it will be hard to paste together 50 percent of the seats and form a new coalition.Who won?With all those losses, who won? Undeniably, it was the Alternative for Germany (AfD), the far-right party founded in 2013, whose position resembles that of Donald Trump, except that its head, attractive young Frauke Petry, spreads her verbal poison cleverly without his bluster. And she wants no frontier wall, but police shooting at “illegal immigrants”! Her party got two-digit results in all three states, 15 and 13 percent in the west and a frightening 24 percent in eastern Saxony-Anhalt. It now has seats in four eastern and four western legislatures.Merkel’s pleas for a humanitarian welcome for the refugees, as dictated by German Basic Law, thus reached only part of the population, and she and her government have been retreating week by week. But for many this was not mean enough. Nationalism and fear, infected with large doses of racism, were fueled in the media by coded or openly hostile reports on every case where a young male “foreigner” was caught in a crime or misdemeanor, with more horror stories invented and spread per Internet, often brutally fascist in tone.Less spectacular was the fact that the great majority of refugees, often mothers and fathers with children, had done nothing worse than wait on long lines for some kind of basic support — and hoped to escape mass cot or mattress accommodation in gyms and airplane hangars. Indeed, most violence, increasingly, was directed against them.But hoarse calls of “We are the people” echoed those oh so libertarian slogans of 1989 against the Berlin Wall and meaning now (and then, too): “We are the GERMAN people.” More and more signs read, “Throw Merkel Out!” or “Merkel resign!” because of her refugee welcome. Faces and looks on the faces of those in such marches recalled many a photo or film of 80 years ago.But the big tragedy, in the eyes of your Berlin Bulletin author, was for the LINKE, the Left party, which lost everywhere. It not only failed to take the five percent hurdle in the two western states (with a disappointing 2.8 percent and 2.9 percent) but crashed from a high-ranking second place in the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt to a crushing 16.3 percent result, a loss of seven points and now far behind the AfD with its menacing 24.2 percent. And its main candidate had once spoken of becoming minister-president there!The refusal by speakers of the LINKE to depart from humane, friendly treatment of the refugees — in unusual concurrence with Merkel — was admirable and expectable but won no votes. What was missing, it seemed to me, was a sharp rejection of the government policies which helped cause the refugee flight: support of U.S. policies in Syria and Turkey, sales of  weapons worth billions to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the Emirates.And there were even more aggressive responses to the fears of so many people, especially in eastern Germany, about no jobs or rotten ones at weird hours and low wages, about the mean, demeaning treatment of all who lose their jobs, against higher rents and gentrification, rising rates of electricity, medical care and transportation. The AfD built on such fears; the LINKE took good positions, but was all too rarely seen on the streets in active, vigorous protest. It often aimed at coalitions with Greens and the SPD, in Saxony-Anhalt and elsewhere. As a result, many saw it as just one more of the corrupt old parties.The LINKE might even dare to insist that the whole rotten system was more and more a “1% vs. the 99 %” set-up — and needed more than just Band-Aid improvements. Rebelliousness in a vicious direction has won too many AfD converts; rebelliousness in the other direction [left] might also win angry protesters.This fightback spirit has been demonstrated, sometimes with more success, sometimes with less, but always admirably, by protesters in Greece, Portugal, Spain and Ireland, also very courageously by Jeff Corbyn in Britain — and in many ways by Bernie Sanders. Their vigor and courage, also their originality and even humor, are as badly needed here as in those places.Germany has long been a powerful force in Europe, usually in a bad way. But its potential on the left, with a large, usually devoted membership in the LINKE party, and still with many delegates in the Bundestag [the national parliament] to support (not replace) action in  the streets, could play a valuable role — which is now needed more urgently than ever!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

9.9 Million Americans May Miss Housing Payments

And it breaks down the data by state. So, for example, a glance at the most recent numbers show that likelihood of eviction and foreclosures are highest in the following regions: District of Columbia, Indiana, Florida, Iowa, Texas, Wyoming, Massachusetts, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Arizona.As for unpaid mortgages and rent, the states with the highest numbers are: Mississippi, Louisiana, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Arkansas, Connecticut, Missouri, and West Virginia.The study also shows that homeowners in certain states—Mississippi, Louisiana, and Nevada, to name the top three—are having more trouble than others keeping up with household expenses beyond the mortgage or rent payment.The purpose of the census study is to inform federal and state response and recovery planning. It is informing policymakers, journalists, and thereby the public as well, in a way that might lead to some measure of solution.Housing advocates say that in order to understand the looming eviction crisis our country is facing, we must examine the state of the housing market before COVID-19 emerged.Diane Yentel, President and CEO of the National Low-Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) told CNN we were “in the midst of a severe affordable housing crisis.”The NLIHC Reports a shortage of 7 million affordable rental homes available to low-income renters. Yental explained that people struggling to pay for housing, or who have been evicted, suffer health wise.
