Triumvirs


Inflation,Oil,Financials of the present day are like Mark Antony,Brutus, Julius ceaser.in the Roman era.
The economy of most countries are wrecked by these three ominous syndromes.

The world is perplexed. The sooth sayers of finacials are doomed.
Bernanke has bluffed, fluffed,all of us ,by spelling out that dollar is getting strong.
Asian stock markets are gasping for breath. Mumbai and Shanghai are going down the slide .
Can the Triumvirs be tamed down?
The Roman triumvirate sealed their own destiny.
Can we look forward for such an end to thes three life like caricatures?

The Midas Touch


I read the story of Midas when I was in my primary school.I used to read it again and again. I was flabberghasted, as how God could grant such a wish to Midas-turning everything he touches into gold.Finally his food also turned into gold.This is the moral of the story.
In Cameron Highlands, Malaysia,I saw the same course of action, though in a different comfiture.It is a retreat for the Malaysians. The weather is pleasant. The flowers beckons while we negotiate the cuves, The huge trees wave to us,as if they are giving a rousing welcome.This Is what I expected. This is what I enjoyed two decades back.
But ,to my dismay,all these fascinating pictorials are absent today.
As you reach KG Raja, you see no flowers, no greenery, but espy the poly sheets that cover the nursery. White sheets,scatterd all over.
Every single stem, every flower,everyshoot fetches money.The flora and fauna is grown in Cameron ,exported to Holland,Japan,Australia.
It fills Malaysia’s coffers,but drains the beauty of the land.
The dangling ,beautiful flowers are grown in Malaysia.
They are a feast to the eyes of Japanese, Australians.
True a modern Midas is in the offing

Is your house in order?


Gold Man Sachs Vice President,Hormats, has called for U.S global policy retructuring.He said U.S has to improve economically and should become a leader in crafting economic policies.
Mr.Hormats,first set your house in order.
It is easy to preach than to practise.
The housing bubble,the subprima crisis ,oil surge,dollar weakness,are all manipulations of certain self conceited group.
“We have to give ,if we want to get”is Hormats rider.
Everything is reciprocal in this mad, mad world.
The need of the hour is good governance,not rhetoric oration.
Eloquence in action not in speech, is the requirement of this era of financial turbulence .

Gold surging, Dollar falling


Gold and dollar are making us gasp. A day back dollar was on the rise,gold fell to $865. Now gold is on the move-$887.Twists and turns beyond one’s comprehension.
Dollar has been artificially strenghthened.
U.S. tried to contain oil and gold’s upward trend,by nourishing dollar.
Financial reporting was at its height,very much similar to weather forecasts.
Their verbosity could only bring in temporary glory to dollar.
In spite of Saudi increasing its supply,oil has targeted record high of $140.
Inflation is spreading its wings in such velocity, that the world at large is apprehensive of the future.
The G 8 summit has ended in a fiasco. Keats would call it as”fever and fret”of the human race.
Let me conclude with Shakespeare’s tag All is well that ends well.
Three cheers to Gold.To Dollar Better luck next decade

Dollar- a mystery


Watch the market Follow the financial reporting.View the snapshots.
Draw a graph. It will resemble an Electro cardiogram graph of aptient with a massive heart thrombosis.
The rise and fall are so swift,so frequent,so deep.
Cardiologists tell us to wait for anothr 24 hours or 48 hours .They buy time to announce the stability of the patient.
Analysts rush to announce that the dollar is strenghtening,retail sales are picking up,euro has fallen against dollar,in the G8 summit dollar will not be allowed to fall.
Dollar is being pampered,cajoled and assuaged,so that oil and gold will loose their sheen.
How long can they devolve such manipulation?
Why is U.S up to such pranks?
Gold is arm twisted,oil is knocked to satiate the thirst of US economy.
Mmarket gurus take the cue from the cardiologists.Practise patience.

Pandora’s Box


The pandora’sbox is wide open.Gasoline price hike,commodities price rise,oil price surge,bank rate up.All have jumped out simultaneously.The world is shocked. There is anger ,disillusionment and panic .How to come out of thos serious mess? This is what is written large ,which blinks outrageouslyon us

Market analysts, . Management gurus, chiefs of Reserve Banks have thrown their hands in exasperation.
All have faltered in their predictions and predicaments.They are advocating sluggishness and slow down..Their advice provokes the commoner.He yells “what were you doing all this time?’
A question most appropriate.It is like driving a nail into a bolt.
It is best,if all the sophisticated officials keep mum.The juggelery will come to a close.Inflation will come down, Allow nature to take its own course.Shun the intra players ,the corrupt officials,and monitor the day to day activities scruplously

Looking inwards


The G8 summit has decided to look inwards regarding oil inflation.
when we are at fault,we try to seek remedy elsewhere. It is nothing but human weakness.Many ways are there to cut inflation .The supply and demand is not proportional in the case of oil. India and china are fast riding economies. There is much requirement of oil.Russia and Us,are reluctant to release their oil deposits,targetting the prize catch, The OPEC ,feel that they are not the force behind oil hike. Decarbonising the power sector is one essential factor that countries have to pay attention to. Strengthening the public transport system is the other factor that will help to solve the problem.Prudent management of energy is the chief agenda that countries need to focus.
Inflation will be contained by delivering good governance,It is hard to find a country sans political corruption; bribery, cheating,,ill gotten wealth,scams,
Leaders are garrulous.
less talk ,more action,should be our motto .

1.Political corruption
2Hoarding commodities
