Photo credit: GIS NewsPrime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says projection that the United States and Europe could be going back into recession is not good news for small island developing states like Dominica.The United States stock fixtures have been declining in recent weeks as economic jitters and uncertainty about Europe’s finances continues.Prime Minister Skerrit says a recession in the United States and Europe could have serious implications for Dominicans.“It means that the 14 million people who are still out of work in the United States will increase and some of these people may be the citizens of Dominica who reside in the US,” he said.He said many local families here depend on their working families in the US to provide them with money every month and food items.“If people do not have jobs in Europe and North America, which is our primary source of tourists, it means we will not see the kind of projected growth in tourism and the tourism dollar receipt will be reduced. One can imagine the kind of impact that this will have on us,” he added.Dominica Vibes News

South African Finance Minister Trevor Manuel (Image: World Economic Forum)Wilma den HartighSouth African economists have commended Finance Minister Trevor Manuel for a responsible and realistic budget in a difficult economic climate, with the consensus that it will give momentum to a slowing economy.In his budget speech to parliament on Wednesday, Manuel reassured South Africans that they would not bear the full burden of the international economic downturn thanks to South Africa’s sound banking system, healthy fiscal position, credible monetary policy and appropriate foreign exchange regulations.Dr Azar Jammine, director and chief economist at Econometrix, described the budget as “sensible” in light of the economic crisis and difficulties ahead.“It exploited the economic climate we are in beautifully,” Jammine said. He said it is also positive that the greatest areas of spending are in housing, community development, education and health.The largest adjustments to spending plans go to poverty reduction. Some R25-billion will go to provincial budgets – mainly for education and health care – while R13-billion will go to social assistance grants. The school nutrition programme gets an extra R4-billion, and R2.5 billion goes to municipalities for basic services.Manuel also announced that, over the next three years, infrastructure grants to municipalities will total R67-billion, and a further R45 billion will be spent on the Breaking New Ground housing programme. Together with investment in roads and public transport, these constitute a considerable expansion of public sector spending.“These are rightly prioritised as part of our response to the current deterioration in employment and economic activity,” Manuel said.Business Unity South Africa (Busa) also endorsed the realistic message of the 2009 budget. Raymond Parsons, deputy CEO of Busa, said the budget is in line with his organisation’s view that a supportive fiscal package is necessary.“This will help cushion the negative impact of the economic downswing on growth and jobs in South Africa,” Parsons said.Busa believes that while it is important to stabilise the economy this year, it is also essential to focus on measures that will help to lay the foundations for the next economic upturn. Parsons said Busa supports the continued infrastructural spending, investment in education and improved health facilities. It also welcomes, in particular, the increase in the VAT threshold.“Small businesses play an essential role in creating job opportunities,” he said.The Institute for Democracy in South Africa (Idasa) expressed similar sentiments. It said that the budget accurately recognises the unique challenges of the current context and responds boldly to them.“The Minister of Finance’s Speech dwelt at length on the impact of the current financial crisis on the South African economy and public finances, but moved decisively to ensure that the impact would be ameliorated for South Africans,” said Idasa’s Len Verwey.The budget deficit announcement of 3.8% also attracted much attention. Manuel said that although the budget deficit will rise to 3.8% of GDP next year, debt service costs will remain moderate over the next three years (at about 2.5% of GDP).“This is possible because we have had the courage to make the right choices over the past decade,” he said.Idasa said the deficit of 3.8% is far larger than budget balances proposed in the last decade but nevertheless described it as a “bold, assertive response to the unique challenges of the present”.Busa pointed out that while the deficit-before-borrowing is a little higher than expected, it believes that the budget has been able to combine flexibility and prudence in a manner that is positive for business and consumer confidence.Jac Laubscher, Group Economist at Sanlam, said the budget is very much a response to the global financial and economic crisis. It is also mindful of the adverse impact it will have on the economy and the people of South Africa.Laubscher said that the budget shows less confidence than in recent years because of the uncertainty of when and how the crisis will end. However, he believes that the shift to a more expansionary fiscal policy will be supported by an expansionary monetary policy, together with a more competitive exchange rate. In time these should have the desired effect. He is also pleased that the budget is still focused on enhancing the long-term sustainable growth potential of South Africa.Idasa pointed out that Manuel was also right to see the roots of the present crisis less in the “impersonal workings of global financial systems” and more in the absence of an international democratic system of economic and financial governance that equitably and transparently regulates the relations between states.Clearly, international markets need positive reforms, and South Africa seems well poised to play a leading role in representing developing country interests and perspectives in debates on these reforms.As expected, the budget was not without its lighter moments. In announcing this year’s increases in “sin taxes” – duties on tobacco and alcohol products – Manuel a participant in his online Tips for Trevor campaign, which encourages members of the public to give suggestions for the budget.Manuel said: “Mr At du Plooy has written to ask, ‘Please be a little more lenient on the tax on whisky for the old folks. We have so little to enjoy, you know things that used to happen after dark, no longer happen. All we have left to enjoy is a little entertainment before supper.’“He asks for leniency, reminding me that this will ultimately be for my own benefit as well. A bottle of whisky, Mr du Plooy, goes up by R3.21.”Related articlesSA tops for budget transparency Motlanthe reassures the nation SA’s finances all in order Infrastructure development in South Africa Upbeat budget despite global gloom Useful linksSouth African National Treasury – Budget 2008 EconometrixInstitute for Democracy in South AfricaBusiness Unity South AfricaOpen Budget Initiative
Tags:#advertising#marketing#NYT#twitter#web mike melanson Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Whether a website sells off your email address or forces you to install some pop-up plagued toolbar just to get 10% off your next online purchase, searching for online coupons can involve treading in dangerous waters. Enter CheapTweet, which uses both algorithms and crowdsourcing to verify its content, and suddenly looking for the best deals online isn’t quite so scary.The self-described “Twitter-based social deals search engine site” does precisely that – it finds tweets about deals and coupons through a custom search algorithm and then allows its users to upvote or downvote the deals on its site.Tweeting deals, if your wondering, can be big business. In 2009, Dell made more than $6.5 million through Twitter deals and CheapTweet probably sent a few of those customers their direction. The ad aggregator is actually celebrating its 5 millionth indexed deal with a roll-out of a refurbished website, which includes upgrades to its search engine, the voting mechanism, a redesign and and new feature, the “DealStream”. CheapTweet allows its users to search for deals by category and keyword and will customize the stream of tweets according to their votes and Twitter conversations. They can also up and down vote tweets, like they’ve become accustomed to on sites like Reddit, Digg or Google Moderator. The “DealStream”, which contains a user’s customized results, can also be read as an RSS feed.As CEO Hayes Davis points out in a press release, CheapTweet is poised to help distinguish the good from the bad as more and more companies prepare to monetize through Twitter. “Online channels will only become more cluttered, as social networks start to monetize with ads,” said Davis. “CheapTweet’s service makes it easier for shoppers to sort through the clutter online and shop more effectively.”We’ve not only heard a number of rumors and anonymous tips on what the Twitter ad platform will look like, but other companies like 140 Proof have begun to enter the market, bringing tweet-like ads to third party clients. This doesn’t even account for the vast number of small businesses taking advantage of the service to pass out Web-only deals and coupons. With all of these ads, CheapTweet will help weed out the bad apples. Its users down vote nefarious tweets, the algorithm cuts out spam using a form of natural language processing and the multiple tweets about the same deal are combined to cut down on the noise. We think that a service like CheapTweet has found a perfect niche and its the ideal service to recommend to your less technically-savvy relatives, as well as those just looking for a deal. Like we said, searching for online deals can put you in some dangerous waters and this service helps clear out some of the flotsam and jetsam.

“I can count, probably, about seven or eight major developments that are under way or have already taken place within a two-mile radius. The entire landscape of New Kingston is changing,” he said.The Cambridge will comprise two towers – the Cambridge Edge and the Cambridge Elites, and will feature super studios; one-bedroom units with two full bathrooms; and two-bedroom, two bathroom units. Amenities will include a swimming pool, tennis court, gym, and jogging trail.Last year, Guardian Life broke ground for construction of The Hampshire, located on Comlin Bank Road, which will soon be completed.This development, along with The Cambridge, represents an investment by the company of approximately $10 billion in the real estate industry. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, on Thursday (March 21) broke ground for Guardian Life Limited’s 176-unit luxury apartment complex in New Kingston.The $4-billion housing development, dubbed ‘The Cambridge’, will be built on three acres of land located at 2 to 4 Musgrave Avenue, Kingston 5.Mr. Holness lauded the financial services company for investing in its second real estate project.“The Government appreciates what Guardian is doing. I want to commend you. I want to use you as an example to other investors. It doesn’t have to be housing, but there are other areas of the economy where real investment can make a difference – investment that is going to bring employment and investment that is going to transform the built environment,” he said.Mr. Holness noted that this latest investment is in keeping with the Government’s thrust to transform Kingston and stimulate further growth.“The strategy of the Government is to encourage the development of the city and to attract more people. This reduces the cost of the infrastructure; it reduces the cost of the delivery of service; it improves administration, and at the end of the day, it improves quality of life,” he said.In his remarks, President of Guardian Life Limited, Eric Hosin, noted that the investment in real estate is not only in keeping with the company’s strategic objectives, but a demonstration of its confidence in Jamaica’s economy.Prime Minister, the Most Hon.

The Eagle’s Wings raffle for a blue 1957 Chevrolet Belair helped raise $50,000 thanks to the generosity of one Northport man.The classic car was donated by Northport resident and Northport Methodist member William Ernest.“It was something that I had wanted my entire life was a 1957 Chevrolet,” said Earnest. “That was my dream car, and finally I got it. Of course we worked at it and did a lot with it.”After working on restoring the car, Earnest struggled with what to do with it. He decided to donate it instead, because he believed putting money from the car towards a good cause was more important than having the car.“Material things are OK to have but that’s not going to prepare us for where we’re going in the future,” said Earnest. “And we felt that the car, if we sold the car and gave the money, that that was more important than me having the car.”Diane Junkin won the raffle that was put on by Eagle’s Wings and is now the proud owner of the classic car. She goes to car shows with her husband and always dreamed of owning a car like this, but never thought it would be a reality. She said that while it’s amazing to win a car, there is much more to be thankful for.“So exciting to win this beautiful car, but I think the most amazing thing is that someone like Mr. Earnest dug so deep to give to Eagle’s Wings,” said Junkin. “And I hope that everybody, everybody out there hearing this will do that this season.”All proceeds from the raffle will benefit Eagle’s Wings and Northport First United Methodist Church.
