Nuclear: ASN wants new powers

Tag: economics, economy, online, resources, top newsadmin @ 8:28 am

 Despite

nuclear situation in France considered "satisfactory overall in 2013," Pierre-Franck Chevet1, president of the Nuclear Safety Authority says negative points.

Two difficulties are attributable to Areva2. The first is "related to the storage of waste on the former site of La Hague packaged in concrete silos." This is not the most technical tip: these compounds should be stored in "stable containers," says Pierre-Franck Chevet. These waste produced by the unit reprocessing spent fuel UP2-400 arrested for eleven years, have been the subject of recommendations in 2011. But the cost of operations deemed "priority" by ASN3, is € 2.5 billion at the expense of Areva. Faced with this amount, it is understandable that the discussions drag on, for an operation that will spread until 2030

. In addition, site fuel fabrication FBFC Areva in Romans-sur-Isère, was placed "under enhanced vigilance." After handling errors on small bottles of fissile material in 2012, "repeated problems and recurring security" have been identified. Areva proposed April 10 ASN to launch "an action plan reinforced."

In addition, while the EDF's nuclear fleet is subject to a satisfecit global4 three plants (Civaux, Chinon and Bugey) are less well noted. After a detailed inspection in October 2013, ASN inspectors noted that Civaux was "withdrawal on compliance and implementation of basic safety principles" and noted "significant differences in respect of environmental regulations. "

These examples illustrate that the ASN requests the State the right to impose on operators' new sanctions, "" daily fines "c that is to say fines. So far, the authority has "the right to close a nuclear plant in case of danger or transmit a report violations to justice," says Pierre-Franck Chevet, who regrets not having sanction intermediate between these two extremes. It hopes that this law is integrated bill on energy transition and suggests the reform of the financing of the ASN, using "direct contribution of large farmers." This increase expected budget, € 50 million per year, together with the IRSN (Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety), could help the ASN to fill expanding roles, such as radiology equipment control . Harmonize rules

In the longer term, the ASN must review the plan called "refit" of EDF's nuclear fleet, estimated at 55 billion euros for the extension of the life of plants. To allow reactors to operate beyond 41 to 45 years of service, Pierre-Franck Chevet expects "an appointment particularly complex. For reactors will implement safety features like those of the EPR. " ASN will deliver its final opinion on the matter in 2018

. In the event of a major nuclear accident in Europe, which could affect several countries, ASN would harmonize rules for the protection of populations. Despite the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, levels of intervention are specific to each country. The first discharge thresholds are for example two times lower in France than in Germany. And everyone would have the right to stable iodine tablets in France in a 100 km radius around the accident site, while in addition the Rhine distribution only concern first the age of 18 and speakers. women

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.

Real estate: prices are overvalued by 15% in France

Tag: events, features, finance, publications, resourcesadmin @ 1:52 pm

 

Even if prices fall immobilier1 since 2012, they are still overvalued by 15%, according to a study by Credit Agricole. "The prices have so far fallen slightly (-2.1% in 2012 and -2.5% in 2013) and 155% cumulative since 1998 was only partially offset by lower credit rates , lengthening the loan term and increases in income, "explains Olivier Eluère, an economist at Credit Agricole and author of the study. The market is however assagi2 slightly compared to 2008, when prices were overvalued by 25% then, by Crédit Agricole. The credit rate is higher then borrow more weighed on household income.

This year, the market should still idle. Crédit Agricole expects a decline of 4% of transactions in the former and stability in the new. "The negative factors are present, but they should not increase. The economy is recovering very slowly, "said Olivier Eluère. The new tax regime for capital gains including an exceptional reduction of 25% for one year, could also "a bit thin market", with a increase in new home sales and rental investment.

The mortgage rates will gradually rise

But rates immobiliers3 credits should just go back to little in the wake of the 10-year OAT could reach 3% by year end. If this scenario is confirmed, the lower prices of existing homes is expected to reach 4% (yoy). "This would represent a cumulative decline of 7% to 8% between late 2011 and late 2014," says the study.

"The evolution of credit rates will be critical habitat for the property market in 2014," Olivier Eluère advance. "If bond yields went up significantly and if this movement was then reflected in lending rates, the market correction could be significant," he says.

Anyway, as in 2013, secondo buyers, ie households who buy and sell their primary residence, the majority remain in the property market this year. "The weight of" first-time buyers "remain low," he says.

"We are moving towards a situation is a situation stabilization is already considerable," said the Minister of Employment, invited the Grand Rendez-vous Europe 1 / i / TV World. "Everyone will then ramble: 'yes, you are not spent in the least something (…). But 2013 was a year of battle fought effectively against rising unemployment. "

The minister put forward a new fois4 the decline recorded during the year 2013 – "more than 30,000 unemployed additional months" in the first quarter against "third quarter 5500" – and the decline in youth unemployment "for eight months. " He also defended the effectiveness of its policy to support use with supported employment. "The engine of employment policy gave all he could give results," he has said. "We plugged the gaps in 2012 and 2013 and the boat is restarted the second half of 2013. Today the challenge is that this boat, which moves too slowly, moving faster, "added the Minister online payday loans. "The economy must take over from the creation of jobs," he continued, referring to the pact proposed by François Hollande responsabilité5 business that provides relief of charges in exchange for 6 embauches7.

More direct counterpart of Agriculture Stéphane Le Foll8 acknowledged Sunday evening BFMTV "that figure near, the year 2013, we will not reverse the trend of unemployment." However, he felt the need to continue the effort to lower unemployment. Pierre Moscovici9 is not of the same opinion, saying that "the year 2013 there was a sharp deceleration and reversal of the trend in unemployment has been initiated." The Minister of Economy said on France Info that there is "now improved employment situation, a growth restarts but more must be done." This confusion in government communications is reminiscent who had surrounded the announcement of a tax reduction from 201510.

In the aftermath, Jean-Claude Mailly11 blasted "missed a bet" and lashed out at the government hesitant communication. "It must be clearly stated. A sudden reversal is a sudden, it is stabilizing, suddenly, it is a slower rise, we will end up having the reverse inversion, that is to say the increase. "Secretary General ouvrière12 Force on France 5 found that" while we do not find an economic growth rate of around 1.6 minimum point, we may have an increase in unemployment. "
