Un euro in scadere atat in raport cu dolarul american cat si in raport cu alte valute de referinta, scaderea pretului petrolului si programul de achizitie de active al Bancii Centrale Europene sunt doar cateva dintre elementele de sustinere a unui proces de recuperare pe care economia Eurozonei pare sa se inscrie tot mai hotarat.

Nu au trecut mai mult de 2-3 ani de cand politicieni si analisti celebrii de prin toata lumea ne spuneau cu mare emfaza ca vremea occidentului, in frunte cu SUA a apus, si ca noile puteri economice si politice care se intrevedeau la orizont – Brazilia, Rusia, India si China, denumite generic BRIC, vor conduce si domina lumea.

In 1993 Huntington articula, intr-o carte, perspectivele pe care lumea le avea in acel moment, dupa caderea comunismului. Inevitabilul conflict intre civilizatii, cu accent pe ascensiunea civilizatiei musulmane sunt linii directoare ale cartii respective. Dupa aproape doua decenii, o alta viziune a acestuia se transforma in realitate … langa Romania … exact in timpurile noastre!

Milk quotas were originally introduced for 5 years, but the expiry date has been put back several times. The final date was decided in the 2003 CAP reform, and reconfirmed in 2008 with concrete steps to provide a “soft landing” by the end of March 2015. Some win -some lose … Romania lose! (but there is still a chance!)

Saptamana de lucru de 4 zile si we prelungit – de 3 zile … ar putea fi o tema interesanta de dezbatere. Pentru mine cel putin … un adept al muncii si efortului fiind (si un om de dreapta mai mult decat convins) … este un subiect ce merita toata atentia … si cred sincer ca … “munca este pentru tractoare, nu pentru oameni”. Pe scurt – as sustine o astfel de idee!

• In the decades that followed the Second World War many commentators predicted that technology and economic growth would lead to an age of prosperity and leisure.  In the last 50 years longevity and standard of living have, indeed, risen dramatically. Yet few of us would subscribe to the idea that we have an abundance of leisure …. Indeed, the dominant view seems to be that we are working harder and are living ever more stressed lives….

Am citit recent un material al Dlui Razvan Orasanu – pentru care am toata stima – care face o critica aspra deciziei Guvernului de a vinde si lista 51% din capitalul Electrica SA. Cu toata stima pe care i-o port insa Dlui Orasanu, nu pot sa nu sanctionez faptul ca articolul in cauza pare a fi mai degraba un atac de dragul atacului … ba chiar cu usoare tente stangiste – interventioniste si populiste … fapt care nu stiam sa-i fie caracteristic dansului.

As the euro area starts to show signs of an economic turnaround, with growth expected to pick up gradually in 2014 and 2015, now is perhaps a good time to assess the longer term prospects for the area as a whole.

Romania is is wealthier, more dynamic and more sophisticated than some stories suggest. Unemployment there is relatively low (and lower than in Britain). Its budget deficit puts Britain to shame. The government is in the midst of liberalising the economy, opening up new sectors (most notably, energy and telecoms) to competition and investment. Economic growth is at 4.1%. Wages are rising fast. Adjusting for prices, Bucharest’s GDP per capita is above the EU average. Indeed, the average Bucharest resident is comfortably better off than the average resident of Manchester.
