Bag with bread on the street STORYLINE: Store shelves in Harare normally stocked with staples such as corn meal, cooking oil and sugar were empty on Wednesday, as Zimbabwe's government threatened to take over manufacturers and retailers who failed to slash prices by half. Smaller shops shut down after running out of stock, while at least 190 supermarkets countrywide have been charged with pricing violations, police said Tuesday. In Harare, police raided 40 open-market traders on Monday, detaining them for allegedly hoarding sugar, soap and cooking oil for sale on the black market, police said. The raids by government inspectors and police - both uniformed and plain clothes - began on Friday, after a June 26 government directive ordering that prices for goods be halved in Zimbabwe. The government last week ordered that prices of all basic goods be restored to those of June 18. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe accused the private sector of sabotaging his government through persistent price increases. Vice President Joseph Msika and Elliot Manyika, head of a new government task force on prices, accused businesses of deliberately fuelling inflation as a political ploy to bring down Mugabe. Authorities arrested 20 businessmen and a ruling-party senator over the weekend on charges of overpricing. The government said Tuesday the price cuts would not be revoked. Consumers, hard pressed by the economic meltdown, took advantage of the reduced prices to stock up on goods they can't usually afford anymore. "The government is driving inflation because eighty percent of their own revenue is non-productive money. It is printed money by the reserve bank. And that is where the major cause of the price increase is because price increase is a function of inflation," said Callisto Jokonya, president of the Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries.

It's HIGH TIME that we all stop competing against, and fighting our way through a feeding frenzy with the hordes of Average Investors over the same tired-out, over-priced auction calls. And, because we can, we really need to (must) stop waiting around for the economy to change before tapping into this most lucrative market that never runs dry...ever. Think of it: You go to an auction that is hoping to sell all type of items that you want and can easily resell for big profits. You then look around you and discover that you're the only bidder...is that worth listening to an hour on Probate by J.G. Banks...one of the (if not THE) country's leading authorities on the subject of Working in Probate. What if you could be handed this gigantic hidden market...'a money supply that is—as simple as it may be—the single-bidder probate market is grossly under-served and chock-full of real and personal property that absolutely MUST be sold — I.e., from houses and farms to motorcycles, boats and big-screen TV's. There's a right way and a wrong way to do everything in life; however, in the very close-knit world of Probate, very few know how to do it right, but when YOU do, you find big money immediately ready to jump into your bank account at pennies on the dollar ('whether it's you who has the money or a cash and credit partner that we can be or hook you up with). It seems that to a rapidly growing number, real estate investing has become just too restricted (re. Garn St. Germain, Dodd Frank, SAFE Act, etc.) and just too great a risk in todays strained economy. Stock prices are tumbling, commodity prices are going up, and real estate is only now beginning to recover (squeaking upward in some select areas). After the mortgage industry scourge of the last few years, most folks are a bit shell-shocked and waiting for the economy to recover fully before they are comfortable taking action with regard to their hard-earned money. But...there is an unpublished, little-known and little-understood real estate market place that few people know a thing about -- 'a captive market where 7-million residential properties wait to be bought cheap and re-sold for ridiculous profits. This is a market for the thinking investor: a market where you and I can find trillions of dollars in real estate profit that hasn't even been exposed to the general public...Yet!

Bread - or rather figures accurately depicting how much of Egypt's food staple will be available this year - appears to be the latest victim of the country's political crisis. Bread is a vital component in each Egyptian family's every meal. In 2011, when thousands took to the streets seeking to end the 30-year rule of Hosni Mubarak, the main chant that resounded in all rallies was "bread, freedom and social justice". However according to experts, the government of recently ousted president Mohamed Morsi has repeatedly given false figures on how much of the commodity the world's biggest wheat importer really has. Late on Wednesday, a week after the military ousted Morsi and members of his government from power, former Minister of Supplies Bassem Ouda told Reuters news agency that the country's wheat stock may run dry in two months. According to Ouda, Egypt, the world's biggest wheat importer, has about 500,000 metric tons of wheat to meet the demands of 84 million people. World Bank figures for 2012 show the country is expected to consume about 18 million metric tons of wheat in 2013. Ouda's comments came as a surprise to much the public and contradicted assurances by his ministry in February that the country's wheat inventories would be sufficient to last out the year. However, not everyone was surprised. "It was very expected for this to happen," Hesham Aboul-Dahab, former member of the Chamber of the Grain Industry at the Federation of Egyptian Industries, told Al Jazeera. "The ministry has repeatedly given inaccurate figures to the public about local wheat production and a so-called self-sufficiency," he added. Aboul-Dahab said Ouda's ministry had relied on "unrealistic and impossible figures to reassure and mislead the public into believing that the government was doing something right, amid several shortages. They kept speaking of a far-fetched self-sufficiency," Aboul-Dahab said. "But now that Ouda is gone, he has to reveal the true figures." Adding to the confusion, Abdel-Fattah, vice president of the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), told state-run news agency MENA on Thursday that Ouda's most recent figures are wrong. Egypt's supply of wheat, whether imported or domestic, is sufficient to last till end of November, Abdel-Fattah said, urging the media "not to pay heed to rumours". Flattened economy The struggle under Morsi's government to maintain a sufficient wheat supply appears to be part of a larger problem. Egypt has been battling for more than two years with a flattened economy, crippled by political instability, and a security lapse. A shrinking tourism sector and scarce foreign investments have resulted in the depletion of net international currency reserves. According to the latest figures on the country's central bank website, net foreign currency reserves reached $14.92 billion this year, almost a 60 percent drop from the $36bn recorded on the eve of the 2011 revolt that toppled Mubarak. Morsi's government was forced to reduce spending as credit rating agencies repeatedly downgraded the country's sovereign credit issuance. Cuts to fuel imports resulted in intermittent power cuts and disrupted industrial production. Talks with the International Monetary Fund for a $4.8bn are on currently on hold. Great expectations All the while the government campaigned to encourage local farmers to produce more wheat. According to Aboul-Dahab, the goals set out by the government for boosting wheat production were "ridiculous". "Up till last year, local farmers could annually provide 2.5 million metric tons," Aboul-Dahab said. "So when the outgoing ministry said they will raise that to 4.5 million, it sounded hard to achieve, but perhaps manageable. But then they pushed the figure to 9.5 million metric tons, which was just ridiculously impossible." Although Egypt produces wheat of its own, the Egyptian grain needs to be mixed with higher-gluten imported wheat to make flour suitable for bread. Imports of the grain have been reduced by 1.8 million metric tons to 8 million, according to recent statements by officials. According to a recently released report by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Egyptian government has forecasted wheat procurement at 4 to 5 million metric tons, which "appears unrealistic". "A more realistic figure for procurement of Egyptian wheat is 3.0 to 3.2 million metric tons in 2013/2014," the report said.

Even as the sweetness of sugar is soured by the presence of contaminated contraband sugar in the country, the public now stands to further suffer from the disorganised supply chain of the commodity. The price of sugar has risen to a one-year high driven by an acute shortage in the market that retailers attribute to the crackdown on contrabands. A two-kilogramme packet of sugar is now retailing at between 260 and 275 Shillings in the leading supermarkets, up from 200 Shillings last month. The Acting Director General of the Agriculture Food Authority, Joseph Ng'etich, says that there are enough stocks in the country and terms the current shortage that has driven up the costs as artificial. This could mean that cartels in the industry are taking advantage of the fight against contrabands to make a killing from the public.

When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services. Consequently, inflation also reflects an erosion in the purchasing power of money -- a loss of real value in the internal medium of exchange and unit of account in the economy. A chief measure of price inflation is the inflation rate, the annualized percentage change in a general price index (normally the Consumer Price Index) over time. Inflation's effects on an economy are various and can be simultaneously positive and negative. Negative effects of inflation include an increase in the opportunity cost of holding money, uncertainty over future inflation which may discourage investment and savings, and if inflation is rapid enough, shortages of goods as consumers begin hoarding out of concern that prices will increase in the future. Positive effects include ensuring that central banks can adjust real interest rates (intended to mitigate recessions), and encouraging investment in non-monetary capital projects. Economists generally agree that high rates of inflation and hyperinflation are caused by an excessive growth of the money supply. Views on which factors determine low to moderate rates of inflation are more varied. Low or moderate inflation may be attributed to fluctuations in real demand for goods and services, or changes in available supplies such as during scarcities, as well as to growth in the money supply. However, the consensus view is that a long sustained period of inflation is caused by money supply growing faster than the rate of economic growth. Today, most economists favor a low, steady rate of inflation. Low (as opposed to zero or negative) inflation reduces the severity of economic recessions by enabling the labor market to adjust more quickly in a downturn, and reduces the risk that a liquidity trap prevents monetary policy from stabilizing the economy. The task of keeping the rate of inflation low and stable is usually given to monetary authorities. Generally, these monetary authorities are the central banks that control monetary policy through the setting of interest rates, through open market operations, and through the setting of banking reserve requirements... Increases in the quantity of money or in the overall money supply (or debasement of the means of exchange) have occurred in many different societies throughout history, changing with different forms of money used... With a fiat currency, Song Dynasty China introduced the practice of printing money during the 11th century and, according to Daniel Headrick, "paper money allowed governments to spend far more than they received in taxes... in wartime, and the Song were often at war, such deficit spending caused runaway inflation." This inflation made paper money undesirable, and in 1020, desperate officials were forced to perfume the money to encourage its use... By the nineteenth century, economists categorized three separate factors that cause a rise or fall in the price of goods: a change in the value or production costs of the good, a change in the price of money which then was usually a fluctuation in the commodity price of the metallic content in the currency, and currency depreciation resulting from an increased supply of currency relative to the quantity of redeemable metal backing the currency. Following the proliferation of private banknote currency printed during the American Civil War, the term "inflation" started to appear ... At that time, the term inflation referred to the devaluation of the currency, and not to a rise in the price of goods. This relationship between the over-supply of banknotes and a resulting depreciation in their value was noted by earlier classical economists such as David Hume and David Ricardo, who would go on to examine and debate what effect a currency devaluation (later termed monetary inflation) has on the price of goods (later termed price inflation, and eventually just inflation). The adoption of fiat currency by many countries, from the 18th century onwards, made much larger variations in the supply of money possible...

In a system of free market healthcare, prices for healthcare goods and services are set freely by agreement between patients and health care providers, and the laws and forces of supply and demand are free from any intervention by a government, price-setting monopoly, or other authority. A free market contrasts with a controlled market, in which government intervenes in supply and demand through non-market methods such as laws creating barriers to market entry or directly setting prices. Advocates of free market healthcare contend that systems like single-payer health care and publicly funded health care result in higher costs, inefficiency, longer waiting times for care, denial of care to some, and overall mismanagement. Skeptics argue that health care as an unregulated commodity invokes market failures not present with government regulation. Individuals with pre-existing conditions would in some cases not be able to afford health care. Hospitals providing unreimbursed charity care might face bankruptcy. Selling health care as a commodity leads to both unfair and inefficient systems with poorer individuals being unable to afford preventive care. The health freedom movement supports free choice in health care. The libertarian Ludwig von Mises Institute argues in favor of deregulation of the medical profession and health care sector. Some activists are politically left-wing, whilst the former Republican congressman and 2008 U.S. presidential candidate Ron Paul, who supports a free-market health care system, calls himself a free market libertarian. A leading supporter of the movement, Paul introduced the Health Freedom Protection Act in the U.S. Congress in 2005. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_market_healthcare Health care or healthcare is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in human beings. Health care is delivered by practitioners in allied health, dentistry, midwifery (obstetrics), medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, psychology and other health professions. It refers to the work done in providing primary care, secondary care, and tertiary care, as well as in public health. Access to health care varies across countries, groups, and individuals, largely influenced by social and economic conditions as well as the health policies in place. Countries and jurisdictions have different policies and plans in relation to the personal and population-based health care goals within their societies. Health care systems are organizations established to meet the health needs of target populations. Their exact configuration varies between national and subnational entities. In some countries and jurisdictions, health care planning is distributed among market participants, whereas in others, planning occurs more centrally among governments or other coordinating bodies. In all cases, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), a well-functioning health care system requires a robust financing mechanism; a well-trained and adequately-paid workforce; reliable information on which to base decisions and policies; and well maintained health facilities and logistics to deliver quality medicines and technologies. Health care can contribute to a significant part of a country's economy. In 2011, the health care industry consumed an average of 9.3 percent of the GDP or US$ 3,322 (PPP-adjusted) per capita across the 34 members of OECD countries. The USA (17.7%, or US$ PPP 8,508), the Netherlands (11.9%, 5,099), France (11.6%, 4,118), Germany (11.3%, 4,495), Canada (11.2%, 5669), and Switzerland (11%, 5,634) were the top spenders, however life expectancy in total population at birth was highest in Switzerland (82.8 years), Japan and Italy (82.7), Spain and Iceland (82.4), France (82.2) and Australia (82.0), while OECD's average exceeds 80 years for the first time ever in 2011: 80.1 years, a gain of 10 years since 1970. The USA (78.7 years) ranges only on place 26 among the 34 OECD member countries, but has the highest costs by far. All OECD countries have achieved universal (or almost universal) health coverage, except Mexico and the USA. (see also international comparisons.) Health care is conventionally regarded as an important determinant in promoting the general physical and mental health and well-being of people around the world. An example of this was the worldwide eradication of smallpox in 1980, declared by the WHO as the first disease in human history to be completely eliminated by deliberate health care interventions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care

Tamil Nadu food minister R Kamaraj on Thursday affirmed the government's commitment to issue smart ration cards to replace the existing family cards for public distribution system from April 1. The cards have been in circulation since 2006 onwards, and additional sheets being inserted every year. The civil supplies department's verification of Aadhaar numbers was on the verge of completion. "Those who have not seeded the Aadhaar numbers will be given time even after April. But cards will be distributed by the state government from April onwards," Kamaraj told media persons. There are 1.96 crore family cardholders in the state and government offers subsidy to supply of food grains. In the last five years, the AIADMK regime had spent Rs 24,450 crore towards food subsidy. A major section of ration card in the priority sector comes under this category. To alleviate poverty, NFSA claims right to receive food-grains at subsidized prices by persons belonging to eligible households that are Priority House Holds (PHH) under Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS). The households remaining after selecting priority list will be moved to Non-Priority category. Non Priority House Holds (NPHH) is ineligible to get subsidized food grains under NFSA system. According to NFSA, 25% of the rural population and 50% of urban population will be out from receiving subsidized food grains under Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS). They will get ration cards but no subsidized food grains as priority ration cards (PHH) get.

SINGAPORE: Singapore is looking to increase its supply of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) imports to meet growing electricity demands. With demand for LNG staying robust, Singapore looks set to lift a moratorium on new piped natural gas imports. Experts said this move, though still at an early stage, would most likely enhance Singapore's competitiveness in the global LNG arena. There may soon be more than one sole supplier of LNG to Singapore. British-based BG Group currently has that exclusive franchise. Singapore's LNG Terminal received its first tranche of LNG on May 7 this year. According to Neil McGregor, chief executive officer of Singapore LNG, the LNG Terminal currently has a capacity of three million tonnes per annum. This will be increased to 6 million tonnes per annum by the end of the year, and to 9 million tonnes per annum by the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017. Speaking at the Gas Asia Summit on Wednesday, Second Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran said the Energy Market Authority (EMA) will soon call for proposals to supply Singapore's next tranche of LNG. This will be done in two stages, starting as early as the first quarter of next year. Importers will first be invited to submit proposals on how LNG can be supplied securely at a competitive price. The EMA will then shortlist up to three parties for the second stage. They will have up to six months to negotiate with potential buyers and secure commitments for LNG sales and purchases. After that, the EMA may award up to two licences, depending on market demand and the quality of the proposals submitted. The EMA also plans to lift an existing moratorium on piped gas imports by 2018, or when LNG -- piped in by BG Group -- reaches its contracted 3 million tonnes per annum. Mr Iswaran said: "We started off with LNG and we had a moratorium in order to ensure the LNG market is able to develop and have a certain base-load position in Singapore. "As we go forward... we should really be able to open up the market to different sources of gas in order to ensure the most competitive sources are able to supply to Singapore, hence the desire to lift the moratorium. " On that note of diversifying sources of gas, Singapore's Pavilion Energy on Wednesday announced that it wants to contribute and invest in Singapore's energy security. Speaking at the Gas Asia Summit, Pavilion Energy chief executive officer Seah Moon Ming said the company has reached its first long-term supply agreement and has also commenced its own LNG trading activities. Analysts believe the response from potential players will be quite warm. Stephanie Wilson, managing editor of Asia LNG at Platts, said: "Singapore is a good market to supply (to) -- there's not much risk as far as I can see. Demand is pretty constant and it's probably going to increase as well. "If you were to supply to Singapore, you would get opportunities that you wouldn't get in other markets. So for example the ability to reload cargos if you so choose, and the vessel cooling down service that they're offering now, that's an important part of what Singapore is aiming to do here, and in addition to which there is potentially some interest in LNG as a bunkering fuel." More sources of supply for LNG imports will increase the competitiveness of Singapore's LNG market. But analysts said although the increased supply of gas will also accelerate the progress of Singapore becoming an LNG hub in Asia, it is still constrained by its small domestic market size and reduced liquidity. - CNA/gn

What is LOCAL KNOWLEDGE PROBLEM? What does LOCAL KNOWLEDGE PROBLEM mean? LOCAL KNOWLEDGE PROBLEM meaning - LOCAL KNOWLEDGE PROBLEM definition - LOCAL KNOWLEDGE PROBLEM explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. In economics, the local knowledge problem is the observation that the data required for rational economic planning are distributed among individual actors, and thus unavoidably exist outside the knowledge of a central authority. It is an instance of the Economic Calculation Problem. Friedrich Hayek described this distributed local knowledge: Today it is almost heresy to suggest that scientific knowledge is not the sum of all knowledge. But a little reflection will show that there is beyond question a body of very important but unorganized knowledge which cannot possibly be called scientific in the sense of knowledge of general rules: the knowledge of the particular circumstances of time and place. It is with respect to this that practically every individual has some advantage over all others because he possesses unique information of which beneficial use might be made, but of which use can be made only if the decisions depending on it are left to him or are made with his active coöperation. We need to remember only how much we have to learn in any occupation after we have completed our theoretical training, how big a part of our working life we spend learning particular jobs, and how valuable an asset in all walks of life is knowledge of people, of local conditions, and of special circumstances. To know of and put to use a machine not fully employed, or somebody's skill which could be better utilized, or to be aware of a surplus stock which can be drawn upon during an interruption of supplies, is socially quite as useful as the knowledge of better alternative techniques. And the shipper who earns his living from using otherwise empty or half-filled journeys of tramp-steamers, or the estate agent whose whole knowledge is almost exclusively one of temporary opportunities, or the arbitrageur who gains from local differences of commodity prices, are all performing eminently useful functions based on special knowledge of circumstances of the fleeting moment not known to others. Because this distributed knowledge, while incomplete, is essential to economic planning, its necessity is cited as evidence in support of the argument that economic planning must be performed in a similarly distributed fashion by individual actors. In other words, economic planning by a central actor (e.g. a government bureaucracy or a central bank) necessarily lacks this information because, as Hayek observed, statistical aggregates cannot accurately account for the universe of local knowledge: One reason why economists are increasingly apt to forget about the constant small changes which make up the whole economic picture is probably their growing preoccupation with statistical aggregates, which show a very much greater stability than the movements of the detail. The comparative stability of the aggregates cannot, however, be accounted for—as the statisticians occasionally seem to be inclined to do—by the "law of large numbers" or the mutual compensation of random changes. The number of elements with which we have to deal is not large enough for such accidental forces to produce stability. The continuous flow of goods and services is maintained by constant deliberate adjustments, by new dispositions made every day in the light of circumstances not known the day before, by B stepping in at once when A fails to deliver. Even the large and highly mechanized plant keeps going largely because of an environment upon which it can draw for all sorts of unexpected needs; tiles for its roof, stationery for its forms, and all the thousand and one kinds of equipment in which it cannot be self-contained and which the plans for the operation of the plant require to be readily available in the market. As such, the local knowledge problem is a microeconomic counterargument to macroeconomic arguments that favor central planning and regulation of economic activity.

Bid and Offer quantity of a stock are often used by traders to make buy or sell decision. A general rule of economics says that if demand is more supply then the price should increase & vice versa. Bid and Offer quantity of a stock are also referred by the traders who trade based on the price action strategy. During my technical analysis, i observed that the Bid and Offer quantity of a stock are not at all reliable. A stock price may increase even if the bid qty is much lower than offer qty & vice versa. In this video, i shared a live example that i recorded during the market hours. Therefore, i do not use Bid and Offer quantity of a stock for my trading. At best it can be one of the parameters that you can refer but cannot rely on. If you liked this video, You can "Subscribe" to my YouTube Channel.

A titanic battle is being waged for Europe’s integrity and soul, with the forces of reason and humanism losing out to growing irrationality, authoritarianism, and malice, promoting inequality and austerity. The whole world has a stake in a victory for rationality, liberty, democracy, and humanism. In January 2015, Yanis Varoufakis, an economics professor teaching in Austin, Texas, was elected to the Greek parliament with more votes than any other member of parliament. He was appointed finance minister and, in the whirlwind five months that followed, everything he had warned about—the perils of the euro’s faulty design, the European Union’s shortsighted austerity policies, financialized crony capitalism, American complicity and rising authoritarianism—was confirmed as the “troika” (the European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund, and European Commission) stonewalled his efforts to resolve Greece’s economic crisis. Here, Varoufakis delivers a fresh look at the history of Europe’s crisis and America’s central role in it. He presents the ultimate case against austerity, proposing concrete policies for Europe that are necessary to address its crisis and avert contagion to America, China, and the rest of the world. With passionate, informative, and at times humorous prose, he warns that the implosion of an admittedly crisis–ridden and deeply irrational European monetary union should, and can, be avoided at all cost. Varoufakis is the Finance Minister of Greece. A Professor of Economic Theory at the University of Athens and a visiting professor at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin, he is the author of The Global Minotaur: America, the True Causes of the Financial Crisis and the Future of the World, among others.
