The Global Economy

VERSION 2.3 This book evolved from a set of notes developed for the Global Economy course at New York University's Stern School of Business. The idea behind the course is to use the tools of macroeconomics to assess the economic performance of countries and the challenges facing businesses operating in them. We emphasize data; virtually every chapter includes links to useful data sources. These "notes," as we call them, are designed as background reading for our course. They focus on tools, leav

Reality Check for the Global Economy

Reality Check for the Global Economy

After five years of disappointing recovery throughout the major economies, almost everyone is ready to believe the worst. The widespread large declines in global asset prices indicate a significant divergence between what financial markets fear and what most mainstream macroeconomic forecasts are showing for the world economy. Having some clarity to distinguish between the more solid underlying economic outlook and the shadows thrown by financial puppetry is critical to avoid an unnecessary rece

If you don’t want to risk vast sums of money on speculative stock market adventures, then Online Penny Stock Trading could be the solution you are looking for to provide quite profitable investments.

There are websites that pick penny stocks that are trading under $ 5.00 on both the NYSE, the NASDAQ, and other major Exchanges such as the London Stock Exchange. You have the chance to become a penny stock trading winner at any time. But the risks are very big and if you do take the advice, you could become a big winner in the penny shares market.

Simply looking at raw numerical data is not going to help you if you are new to the stock market. But you can get the advice that you need from almost any penny stocks trading website; these companies do not want to see you fail in the stock trading world. Instead they would rather see you succeed, so that they can then add another success story to their website and so they can continue to collect commissions on your trades.

There are hundreds of penny stocks trading websites available all over the Internet and you can sign up for any one of them. You get all the usual services that you would expect from a stock trading website. You get the portfolio management tools and the updated stock prices.

But some of these penny stocks trading websites will offer you the chance to sign-up to their weekly newsletter, which will contain which companies they believe will be the next big winner on the stock market.

One of the best that I have come across is the Red Hot Penny Share system, by Fleet Street Publications. Some years ago, I drew all of my various employment pensions ( which were sinking in value fast) and put them into a Self Invested Pension Plan (SIPP) , which is only available to UK taxpayers, although there may well be equivalents in the US.

By enjoying periods of very profitable online Penny Stocks Trading I actually managed to transform my $ 122,000 pension fund into an amount approaching $ 430,000 – and in less than 3 years.

The other major benefit of using the SIPP as an investment vehicle of course was that all the profitable investment returns were tax free – no capital gains tax due.

In this facility, you can actually act as you very own Pension Fund manager, only unlike the usual City Fat Cats, you have a real and determined desire to make your money work at its hardest for you.

As long as you are willing to subscribe to this sort of service, and when they say BUY you buy and when they say SELL you sell, you can make quite an improvement to what may probably be a pathetic little pension nest egg. And the further beauty is that with SIPP’s, you don’t have to cash it in at age 65 for some hit and miss annuity – you can continue to trade profitably until you are 75.

Take your time when you are looking for a penny stocks trading website. There are many websites that won’t actually offer as much services as other stock trading websites. So take your time and choose the site that best suits your needs as a trader.

How Profitable is Online Penny Stock Trading - By An Expert

Since the dawn of the 21st century very few nations have been recognized or emerged to have the largest economic stability in the world. Leading nations like the United States entered the 21st century with an economy that was bigger, and by all means more successful, than ever. Despite enduring two world wars and an everlasting depression in the first half of the 20th century, it faced challenges which ranged from a 40-year Cold War with the Soviet Union to the existence of sharp inflation, huge unemployment, and enormous government budget deficits in the second half of the century. Finally this great nation had the opportunity to relish a period of economic calm in the 1990s. Prices on goods were steady, unemployment dropped significantly, the government posted a budget surplus, and the stock market experienced an unprecedented boom.

The United States however has been undergoing philosophical economic change right at the start of the 21st century. They witnessed a wave of technological innovations in telecommunications, computing, and other biological sciences, which profoundly affected Americans work and play. At the same time, the growing economic strength of Western Europe and the emergence of powerful economies in Asia and the increased global integration of business and finance posed new opportunities as well as risks. All of these rapid changes resulted or lead to the Americans in re-examining everything from how they manage their workplaces to the role of government. Perhaps this is the reason why many workers, while contented with their current status, looked to the future with uncertainty.

Moving to the third world, according to economics experts and various studies as conducted across the globe envision, India and China should rule the world in the 21st century. Its been over a century since the United States has been the largest economy in the world but major developments have taken place in the world economy since then, leading to the shift of focus from the US and the rich countries of Europe to the two Asian giants India and China.

With the arrival of the 21st century, there has been a dramatic shift in India’s approach to external sector management in accordance to the changing situations. With the materialization of marginal current account surplus, the sustainability of India’s current account deficit may not be a problem though the deficit on her trade account persists and has been increasing. The main providers to the positive outcome in India’s current account are workers’ remittances and export of software, both being a result of process of global integration. The exchange rate system as well as external debt management has served India well. The new policy regime assisted India to withstand several global crises while maintaining a respectable growth. It has become obvious that the management of the external sector is closely linked to the domestic sector and the major thrust of Indian public policy is now on managing the integration.

Further, the simultaneous emergence of China and India with significant competitive strengths in trade in goods as well as services will have to be accommodated by the global economy. Thus, the future for both these nations seems to be bright as they struggle to correct current global imbalances. In brief, India has moved from managing external sector to implementing an optimal integration of domestic and external sectors, thus providing itself a better position when it comes to global economy.

Small Business Grants: What You Need to Know

Small business is categorized by its small capital, productivity, manpower and profit. Some of the small business start ups are self financed. But most of them are financed by borrowing of money. In order to prevent higher down payment of interest to banks, the Government of many countries provide the small business grant. The small business grant helps the entrepreneur to receive the principle amount without having to worry about the future repayment of it.

The small business grants help in boosting the growth of small firms since the financial aid received from is a stable and reliable source. Small business grants are mostly obtained from the national Government or from the state or local authorities. Some industrial organizations or established corporations also provide such grants but are not always desirable.

Small business grants provide limited funding. The funding is targeted in specific areas. The main area is principal amount where capital investment is very low or unavailable. Small business grants are also provided for business related to farming, fishery or husbandry. The small business grant is targeted towards funding for hiring of manpower or for purchasing of new machinery and other equipments. If a separate building is required then the small business grant is directed towards purchasing of the land and constructing of the required structure. For more established businesses, the small business grants provide financing for research and development and improvement of technology. Furthermore, small business grants are provided for small businesses with foreign exports to enhance international trade.

In order to avail the small business grant, a well drafted business plan is submitted to the Government or authority providing the grant. Usually the loan provider is the Small Business Administration. The borrower should clearly mention the areas where the grant money will be invested. It is expected that 50-85% of the grant money should be invested into the business. The small business grant is approved subjected to guarantee. Upon approval, the credit analysis is done and the final report is submitted to the business lender. The lender directly disburses the amount to the small business owner. The loan repayment is done on monthly installment basis to the business lender.

In the US, obtaining a small business grant for start up businesses is rare. It is provided only for selected category of businesses, especially those into higher technology. It is a time consuming procedure for the companies to obtain the small business grants. Hence such start up companies approach major corporations that provide the small business grants.

In UK, obtaining small business grants is relatively easier. The best source for small business grant in UK is the Princes Youth Business trust. They provide entrepreneurs aged 18-30 years with grants of £1500-£5000. For start up businesses, the trust provides £250 for marketing and research work. In order to qualify for the small business grant, the individual should prove the non availability of capital and ensure that no other organization has provided the required funding. Also the trust should be satisfied with the business plan that has been submitted by the business owner.
