Understanding the Fundamentals – Unemployment Rate

September 28th, 2012
Understanding The Fundamentals –  Unemployment rate
Unemployment rate is the percentage of the labor force who doesn’t have a job but are willing and actively seeking work. It is one of the macroeconomic indicators that most fundamental analyst are observing in case of a long term investment decision and is usually published at 8:30 EST (NY) on the 1st Friday of the  month.
The unemployment rate is calculated by dividing the number of unemployed individuals by all individuals currently in the labor force.
Effects of Unemployment in the Society and Economy:
Counter-productiveness
Instead of spending their time, effort, and resources in performing a job, the unemployed part of the labor force are obligated to drain their efforts first in seeking out  new jobs. The individual’s counter-productiveness may even worsen if the hunt will turn out to be a failed attempt.
Impoverishment leading to social unrest
Idle individuals have lesser financial means to dispose thus allocating most of it only on the “needs” in order to survive. In the the long run, this may result to dissatisfaction which may escalate once certain individuals started to fill-in their “wants” through dishonest means. The dishonest means which is used to gratify the “wants” may then lead to unrest in the public.
Exploitation of labor
Since there is a surplus of workers because everyone is seeking out a job, there is a high tendency that laborers will be exploited. Most company will take an advantage on this situation since laborers are forced to accept what is offered to them because of fear to lose their job. The exploitation may be in different forms like lower wages, fewer to none benefits, unpaid overtime pay, longer working hours, etc.
Less People Pay Taxes
An individual without any source of income cannot pay his dues to the government. Only those that are employed have the capability to pay the taxes and no tax is certainly a “no no” to the government. Without taxes, the economic activity will slow down because taxes is like a fuel that keeps the economy running.
Bankruptcy of Businesses
Unemployed individuals spends only for things that they needed to survive. The decrease of purchasing activity of consumers will certainly cut those companies that manufactures products that are not essential in the day-to-day activities of individuals.

Will the Financial Crisis Take Russia by Surprise?

September 26th, 2012

The global financial crisis is at the top of world community’s agenda today. Economic experts, politicians and people without financial literacy discuss it. There are a lot of anecdotes about crisis in the Internet. People are concerned about it, experts are analyzing it, but there is no clear forecast of the way the crisis will affect economic situation in Russia and ruble stability.

It was not long ago when the country managed to shake off the effects of the economic crisis in 2008-2009. Now in 2012 we observe its second wave. The first one resulted in the devaluation of Russian national currency. Particularly, Central Bank pushed the value of the ruble downwards and provoked the price growth. Step by the step the Bank’s authorities reduced the value of the ruble making possible to keep the situation under their control. They gave enough time for people to exchange and so prevented the ruble from collapse. Thus Russians could secure their funds by transferring them into another currency. Tight attachment to oil prices makes Russia vulnerable in case of insecure global financial condition. Since the first wave of financial meltdown came unexpectedly, the second one was quite anticipated as a lot of countries kept a watchful eye on their financial security after having a bad experience. Eurozone has been among the hardest hit by the global economic crisis in 2012. It resulted in debt growth, higher unemployment rate and unresolved situation with Greece. European officials have not found a solution to the financial crisis yet. But attempts to work out policy tools in response to the recession will enable to feel the pulse of current economic condition. How can it influence Russia? The only signs we can observe today are lower oil prices, which keep falling despite the ruble rescue measures of the Central Bank. But if oil prices continue to decline, CBR’s funds will soon exhaust. It would lead to severe inflation with its high food prices and currency collapse.

While Russia takes efforts to regulate oil and raw material prices, it remains vulnerable from global economy policy’s fluctuations. The fact is Russia is not the world’s importer of industrial products. It makes the country dependant from Europe and the United States. The country’s budget is directly related to foreign demand for oil. So now experts can say nothing but agree that financial crisis will remain through 2013. Only time will tell whether we will face default.

“Take It Or Leave It” Soros – Germany

September 20th, 2012
Take it or leave it
The euro crisis’ conclusion is fast approaching and the situation is intensifying by the minute.
As the crisis situation escalate, the famous multimillionaire investor George Soros adviced Germany to either lead over the common currency or just quit it.
According to the veteran investor, Germany should now take the reins on euro’s carriage to either  overcome the situation or fall into a drastic ending along with it. ”Germany must take full responsibility for the Europe. Either throw in your fate with the rest of Europe, take the risk of sinking or swimming together, or leave the euro, because if you left, the problems of the Eurozone would get better,” he commented.
According to some experts, the euro crisis will be ended once a single financial regulator will established. A single financial regulator may provide guidance for economic growth especially for the PIGGS country who are on a financially unhealthy diet.
Germany, which still has an unresolved dispute with France, who is also a leading player, is trying to amend on their current situation despite their unsynchronized  goals. The history long dispute may have a shimmering hope after two huge aeronautical companies from each country is trying to form a merge and is seeking to a friendly relationship to both governments. The combined company seeks a help from their respective countries to back up their aeronautical campaign which will also lead to a pan-European corporate champion.
