The New York Times knock out the economic policy of the Eurozone

Tag: events, finance, news, publications, resourcesadmin @ 6:40 pm

 

"Stubbornness European leader", "against-productive decisions", "change of essential attitude of Germany" and other language elements: the editors of the New York Times1 have Sunday delivered a stinging attack on the economic policies of the Eurozone. At the center of criticism of American daily: Germany, which, as first power on the continent, would be the source of almost all the bad decisions taken at European level. Growth

is not waiting for you: zero France2, it was down 0.2% in Germany3 and Italy4. "No one should be surprised that the economy of the Eurozone still walking backwards" according to the New York Times, which points to the stubbornness of European leaders to continue their policies so that "they are exactly the wrong treatment. " This "abuse" referred to the editorialists of the New York newspaper is austerity, "the insistence of the European Union, led by Germany, to push governments to reduce their deficits by cutting spending and raising taxes has hindered the recovery. " The European Central Bank (ECB) is not spared, "the ECB has been too slow and not enough willingness to lower interest rates and to redeem the obligations of States, so that these two measures are effective" cash advances pay day loan. Result of this series of bad choices, according to the New York newspaper: in addition to sluggish growth, deflation threatens Europe5 and industrial production continues to fall. The newspaper

advocates radical change of attitude

And the New York Times to offer solutions to boost growth Eurozone6. "Big changes are needed. Like other central banks around the world have done, the ECB should buy bonds of states and other loans, to lower interest rates and encourage banks to lend more to businesses and individuals "analyzes the daily, explaining that the risk that such a policy causes runaway inflation are close to zero.

In addition to these new shares in the BCE7, the New York Times advocates a different tax policy. The simultaneous requests of the EU (worn again by Germany8, the daily) to lower deficits and rising labor flexibility are against-productive and unrealistic in times of mass unemployment.

Finally, the newspaper "advises" on European leaders to take advantage of low borrowing rates currently to revive the economy of the area. But if these measures succeed, the New York Times calls for a radical change of attitude of the European authorities in general and Germany in particular.

The paycheck advance market has exploded recently and anyone over the age of 18, with a job, a nominal income, and a bank account can take advantage of one of these quick cash personal loans.

Intel removes fans computers

 Intel wants

calm reign in IT. The chip giant announced Monday a new generation of microprocessors particularly economical energy, which dissipate less heat. PC manufacturers can then design and tactile finest portable tablet computers. The latter, freed from fans, will also be quieter. It is no less than "reinventing the laptop," said Intel in a presentation document. This development

is critical for Intel. The world leader in microprocessors built his fortune from embedded chips in PCs. The advent of smartphones and tablets, has weakened its positions. These small devices, always on and connected to the Internet, require highly efficient energy chips, Intel has long been unable to provide. As a result, computer manufacturers have turned to rival chips produced by Qualcomm, Nvidia and Samsung, while Apple went to design its own components for its iPhone and iPad. More worrying

Intel, microprocessors originally developed for smartphones and tablets, now considered strong enough, begin to be installed in the PC, the preserve of Intel. The latest laptop from Acer this week introduced the Chromebook 13 loads a Nvidia chip. Autonomy would reach 13 hours, more than models with Intel technology.

With the new microprocessor, called "Core M", Intel intends to maintain its position in the computer and win in new tablets. "Core M" will find its place in some ultraportables in hybrids, these tablets that transform into PC with the addition of a keyboard, as well as in high-end tablets.

"You will see in particular tablets with the highest level of performance, which will be thinner and lighter," promises Christian Morales, Vice President of Intel for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Intel is virtually absent from the high-end tablets, over 300 euros. Available for Christmas

Most Intel chips are now in the entry-level models, where the margins of the American group are smaller. Only a few remained faithful partners like Microsoft. Its Surface 3 thicker than the iPad Air Apple and the Galaxy Tab from Samsung features a fan. As for laptops, the "Core M" chip could also end up in a future version of Apple's MacBook, which does not contain a fan, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities. The "Core M" is the first chip from a new generation of components Intel, called Broadwell. Intel launched volume production of its chip, which means that the first PCs and tablets equipped with "Core M" will be commercially available for the crucial holiday season of Christmas. The entire range will be presented at the upcoming Intel Developer Forum, to be held in San Francisco from September 9 to 11. Other microprocessors for conventional laptops, desktops or servers to professionals, should be offered in number to Intel customers until the beginning of next year. Intel

indeed took several months of delay in the development of the generation of chips Broadwell, who was asked to review its manufacturing processes.  These chips

entitled to use extremely fine engraving of 14 nanometers, 22 nanometers against the previous generation, which helps to reduce energy consumption and the place of the microprocessor. Share this article

Craftsmen and traders do not see the recovery

 No

embellished on local employment expected in France, at least in the short term. It is the fact that the Professional Union Craft (UPA) book in a survey published Monday on the economy and employment in the sector in the first half of 2014.'s Approximately 1.3 million companies nearby , which represent 20% of the workforce employed in the private sector, saw their sales fall by 1.5% in the second quarter this year. The turnover of the sector is in the red for more than two years. Result: companies in the sector are not likely to recruit. "Only 19% of these companies have hired the entire first half, flat compared to 2013," said the UPA. All sectors are not housed in the same boat: 34% of businesses in the hospitality industry hired when they are no more than 9% and 11% respectively in the service and food. "These figures remind us that the pact does not have any responsibility in business reality and the acceleration of the timetable for lower cost of labor was totally justified," says UPA in its communiqué openly criticizing the slow implementation of government policies.

No improvement expected in 2014

The craft enterprises and local shops are not optimistic for the rest of the year. 30% of CEOs believe their sales will continue to deteriorate in the next quarter, up 7 points over three months. Worse, only 12% plan to hire in the second half or even less. Not surprisingly, the hospitality industry is the most optimistic sector and hopes to use the summer to hire and recover its margins. In contrast, only 5% of artisans public works plan to recruit. Hiring intentions are also very low for the services or the building. Finally, the part-time commonplace. Thus, nearly a quarter (24%) of business leaders have used, especially those in the hospitality and food (40% and 31%). More than a boss in two (51%) employed part-time for less than the new legal limit of 24 hours per week. UPA demand an easing of the legal system "so that the common interest of the employer and the employee may be privileged." Between the government and employers, differences persist.

Crashes and security series: summer murderer airline

Tag: Uncategorized, economic, finance, news, worldadmin @ 7:52 am

 A horrible

black series with three plane crashes – the downing of Malaysian Airlines Boeing 1au over Ukraine, the crash of an ATR 72-500 TransAsia Airways2 Taiwan and now the disappearance of a 83 Swiftair3 MD, operated on behalf of Air Algeria, Mali over – in a week. A macabre combination which, fortunately, is very rare.

But these repeated accidents will make 2014 a year of the most deadly airline. It will also add to these three crashes, the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Boeing with its 239 passengers, on March 8, a few hours after taking off from Kuala Lumpur and its sudden change of direction while the plane was rallying Beijing . Disappearance remains unexplained to this day. And several crashes occurred in Nepal, Kenya, Niger, Zambia and Sudan in recent months.  

In total, more than 730 people have already died by flying this year. Much higher than at the last peak in 2012 and 414 deaths related to a plane crash, more than four times higher than those recorded (210 deaths) in 2013 by the International Air Transport Association (IATA4). And finally, more than the average of 517 deaths per year recorded in the world in the last five years. The road

killed 3,268 people in France alone in 2013

This sad record 2014 must not however forget – and this may seem paradoxical then that emotion is huge – the aircraft remains the means of transport most of the world. But unlike the automobile kills more – 3268 died in 2013 in France alone – each plane crash is spectacular, has an international dimension and place in a universe – the sky – which is not natural to human no fax payday loans.

However, the plane never had so few killed. The global accident rate for jet Western manufacturing in 2013 was 0.41, or one accident for every 2.4 million flights. "This is the lowest in the history of aviation," according to IATA in its latest report on aviation safety. "From 2009 to 2013, this rate has improved by 14.6% over the five-year average, which stands at 0.48", the report says. Europe

is the safest region

The accident and death rates remain very low by more than 3 billion passenger who took the aircraft on 36.4 million flights in 2013. These statistics should also be read in the context of a market for air transport growth (4.8% on average) and a global fleet that doubled in size every two years on average. It now has 20,910 units in service worldwide and is expected to double, according to the latest market study Boeing5 within twenty years.

By region, the IATA report refers to Europe as the safest in terms of air transport with a lower accident rate than average 0.15 World in 2013; ahead of North America (0.32). In contrast, among the most dangerous regions despite significant progress, IATA means Africa6 with an accident of 2.03 against 4.55 in 2012 and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) which saw its rate accident rate worsen to 2.09 against 0.00 in 2012. "IEC shows the worst performance," says IATA.

Gender Equality: Progress to

Tag: money, people, special, top news, traveladmin @ 9:00 am

 

Companies can do much better in terms of equality between men and women.1. According to a survey conducted by ESCP Europe, who interviewed 40 women with 10-15 years of experience, and participating in its Executive MBA programs 2and Women and Women Leaders, 55% of female managers believe that the effectiveness of their business to fight inequality is "low". They are only four to report that their company has a policy of equal pay and benefit.  Although

45% noted an improvement over the last five years of the place of women in positions of leadership in their business, 83% of women managers argue that companies continue to favor "unconsciously" men against women. Take

its destiny

Denouncing preconceived ideas, they believe that the difficulties in reconciling work and private life are not sufficient explanations for the gap between men and women. All refuse the argument of lack of competence. Eight out of ten claiming they have the same ambition as men.

"Women are pragmatic and themselves take initiatives that will help them accelerate their careers," says Delphine Manceau, Director of Corporate Division Europe ESCP Europe.

Seven in ten indicate that they are the ones who had the idea to follow one of two training programs continues to ESCP Europe. Eight out of ten find that their company has not encouraged to take this training. But 72% agree that their employer fully or partially finance their courses, to facilitate their training by providing high availability, or detach someone to help them cope with their professional work load.

This realism is accompanied by a clear look at what they consider their weaknesses and their qualities. "90% of women explain that they follow our program to build a professional network of women leaders. They want to exchange between peers and participate in events dedicated to women managers and leaders, "Delphine Manceau analysis.

Better manage their career comes second. Have more responsibility in third. The salary increase is in fourth position. Gaining confidence

Managers women also hope to gain confidence, one of their main disadvantages. "I was able to pass a number of stereotypes about women's access to leadership positions following an executive MBA for eighteen months, shows Rezlaine Zaher, former executive assistant became responsible for internal communication at Lafarge . I have confidence in myself. I would highlight my achievements and aspirations. I would not have done before. "

But all women managers do not believe that their training is more to progress with their employer, since 50% admit that they take courses to business change.

And they are only a third think that government policies in favor of women will have a positive effect on their careers.

Greece: the third bailout plan rejected after the European

Tag: Uncategorized, economy, online, opinions, publicationsadmin @ 10:28 pm

 

From our correspondent in Brussels

Cold shower for Samaras government. Greece1 straightens her accounts faster than expected, but it will have to wait to collect real encouragement: the capitals of the euro decided to postpone until the end of the summer any discussion of a third bailout.

This is the President of the Eurogroup itself cut short the hopes of Athens, at the beginning of a closed session of finance ministers: "If the program is followed, there will grant installments paid by May (as expected), assured Jeroen Dijsselbloem2 his arrival in Brussels. There will be no emergency about a new aid program for Greece and we will discuss the future in August. "

With the European elections in sight, Antonis Samaras3 had to dangle his constituents additional support countries of the euro and thus counter the explosive growth of anti-austerity party SYRIZA. It's the same election date today dictates a wait of its partners: Angela Merkel4 in particular does not want to feed the critics of the AFD, the new anti-euro party on the invoice that Greece impose the German taxpayer.

Unemployment remains attached to almost 30%

On this point, the Chancellor would have imposed its views to the Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble5 who wanted a gesture of solidarity with Athens, if one believes the weekly Der Spiegel. The first concerned the rise of anti-European vote in Germany on the evening of May 25 The second is concerned with a thrust extremes that would torpedo, Greece, the first success after four years of effort.

Under the tutelage of the EU-ECB-IMF troika, Athens found a "primary" budget surplus (excluding debt service) of € 1.5 billion in 2013 from the Prime Minister Samaras. This is twice the desired result. After five years of recession, Greece is also expected to grow by 0.6% this year according to the EU. But he still has to drive reforms and unemployment remains attached to almost 30%.

The surplus, if the European agency Eurostat confirmed in April, the condition laid down in late 2012 to consider a third European bailout: long-term loans, longer maturities of debt that weighs 175% of GDP and any interest rate relief. It is this perspective that is now pushed under the weight of the electoral calendar.

In 2014, wages increase for experts

Tag: business, features, special, technology, top newsadmin @ 3:04 am

 

While the recruitment market in France contracted sharply in 2013, especially on the first part of the year, the vintage 2014 should mark a "clawback", according to experts at Robert Walters, while still remaining hesitant. Result, do not expect a general surge wages.1. "The movements of the market does not yet lead to an adjustment of wages", except some expertise that will lead "to the regular implementation of individualized adjustments."  

The use of sharp profiles and experts does seem to be characteristic of the recruitment market in times of crisis, says the 15th edition of the "Salary Survey" by Robert Walters, which passes combed fifteen trades worldwide ( finance, HR, Legal, engineering, procurement, commercial2, insurance …) and compiles payments of more than 100,000 candidates.

As Antoine Morgaut3 CEO Robert Walters Europe stresses, some functions are nevertheless remained "coveted" last year. It is above all profiles "experts" on the items "associated with mergers and acquisitions, consolidators of data scientists, community managers in human resources or digital marketers."

In 2013, said the study, the French market suffered a sharp contraction, large groups are largely engaged in restructuring plans effectifs4. This resulted at once by "a slowdown in the number of recruitments, apprehension candidates to risk, a fear of losing his job and widespread uncertainty."

The ten proposals MEDEF to support entrepreneurship

Tag: business, international, news, resources, top newsadmin @ 4:36 pm

 

MEDEF starts time entrepreneurs, and to promote their development and sustainability. "The entrepreneurship is part of the challenges," said Wednesday its president Pierre Gattaz1, which participated for the first time since its inception in the Salon des Entrepreneurs in Paris. For the occasion the employers' organization presented "10 recommendations for entrepreneurship" to support the entrepreneurs who, for 90% of them have no employee.

The boss of bosses means including "support entrepreneurs." This is the ecosystem Medef2, ie 750,000 members, 110 MEDEF territorial and 80 professional federations adherent, which must be mobilized. A "welcome pack" will thus be experienced with a contribution of one euro for a year to any entrepreneur who has just set up its structure. "Every entrepreneur should know that the MEDEF and territorial professional associations are available to them for advice," says Thibault Lanxade3, vice president of MEDEF.

Promote micro-credit

Another initiative that aims landmark, MEDEF intends to place the foot in the stirrup entrepreneurs by allowing them, for example, get their "first order". An approach that requires a better ranking of these small structures with purchases of major groups and SMEs services. In the same spirit to build sustainable business models, MEDEF will launch by the end of the year an awareness of its members to crowdfunding, ie the participatif4 funding. "Promoting entrepreneurship without favoring funding does not make sense. We will support the crowdfunding in the current banking environment, "says Pierre Gattaz.

The employers' organization finally wants swarm entrepreneurship through all layers of society. It will therefore promote initiatives in sensitive urban areas (ZUPs) youth under 30 years, thanks to a partnership with PACE (Agency for entrepreneurship) and conduct an experiment with the Ministry of Defence to accompany the conversion of twenty soldiers.

Health spending out of control

Tag: features, money, news, top news, traveladmin @ 10:32 am

 

Health, a bottomless pit? According to the latest projections of the High Council for the Future of Medicare (HCAAM) published in late December, health spending is expected to increase much faster than the growth until mid-century and dig deeper the pit bottom of the hole Safely. Without corrective action, the deficit Insurance disease1 would thus amount to € 14 billion in 2020, almost twice (7.7 billion) that recorded in 2013. Worse, it will double by 2030 and peak at 41 billion in 2040.

This dark omen is explained by the growth forecast expenditure particularly rapid health until 2024 (+3%) and high until 2040 (+2.4%) before then slow (+1.8% ). The system, which accumulates deficits for more than ten years, would not survive such a groundswell. Indeed, increasing the hole Safely to absorb increased spending is excluded. This "lead to secure funding for future generations care spending today sick," says HCAAM, consisting of representatives from labor, management, administration and experts.

Three solutions listed

Some measures are taken each year in the social security budget (2.9 billion savings in the 2014 budget) to make adjustments. But spending will grow more than twice as fast as the French growth! And again, harder still to do. "To sustain a balanced budget (possibly) achieved in 2020, efforts should be continued unabated at least until 2040," warns HCAAM. The engine of this drift? The aging of the population, for a "relatively modest" part, and especially "the technical progress and the organization of care emerging as important contributors to health care spending."

Faced with these phenomena expected, the High Council list three solutions, but retains one. Increase social contributions (CSG and contributions)? Unthinkable, given the current level of spending. "If we had used solely revenue increases, they would repeat until 2040," the alert HCAAM. Increase delisting care? For that's enough to fill the gap by 2020, the decrease in support as it would "involve a major systemic change." Complementary health paying most of the expenses, the cost would jump to the insured, at least for those who could acquire them.

Therefore remains only the trail of a "vigorous and ongoing" control health spending, as also argued François Hollande vows at 31 December (see page 3). The "deposits efficiency" exist, recalls HCAAM, which campaigns again to a better organization of primary care. Clearly, send fewer patients directly to emergencies, very expensive for community.2, and rather to GPs. It should also address acts and hospital stays "irrelevant". Between the lines is the question of the French system too "hospital-centered."
