European economic update

Europe continues its fudge and bodge and continues to ignore its core problem, which is that the Monetary Union just cannot work under the current framework. The Core Problem: Under a system of freely floating exchange rates (the dollar and sterling are free floating, the Renminbi is not) the market, on a continuous basis, bases prices on a combination of factors. These are: the level of domestic interest rates, the inflation rate, the government’s budget position, the balance of payments, in particular the current balance (this is the net of visible and invisible flows), and the way in which this is being offset through the capital account (in particular by government borrowing from outside the economy). If the market decides that, in combination, the country is in an unsustainable position, they sell the currency. There is a devaluation. This, with time, lags results in an adjustment, via more profitable exports, more expensive imports, higher interest rates, and, for a time, lower growth. It takes about…

EUROPE took a major step towards full fiscal union last night, as every EU member country except the UK and the Czech Republic vowed to cut budget deficits and submit themselves to greater scrutiny from the European Commission. The 25 countries that signed up hope to have a formal pact in place by March, and plan to ratify and implement it in the following months. In an effort to put in place a big enough “firewall” to protect Italy and Spain from bankruptcy, the Council also agreed to bring the establishment of the European Stability Mechanism forward to July – a year earlier than initially planned. EUROPEAN banks are preparing to tap the European Central Bank’s emergency funding scheme for up to twice as much as the ECB supplied in its debut €489bn auction last month, providing further evidence of the sector’s liquidity squeeze. Several of the Eurozone’s biggest banks have said they could well double, or triple, their request for funds in the ECB’s…

Leiderschap op afstand

Het managen van virtuele werknemers en werknemers op afstand is dé nieuwe vaardigheid voor managers geworden. Maar, omdat deze competentie door niemand wordt aangeleerd, moeten medewerkers deze zelf onder die knie zien te krijgen. Om dit succesvol te kunnen doen, zijn een aantal strategieën vereist. Bedrijven worden steeds slanker en de virtuele medewerker wordt steeds belangrijker, die zijn of haar diensten aanbied vanuit huis of vanaf een andere kantoorlocatie. Er zijn veel voordelen verbonden aan werken op afstand. Je kunt aandoen wat je wilt en je hoeft niet deel te nemen aan kantoorpolitiek. Het nadeel is dat het werken op afstand minder stabiel is. Ook kan het ervoor zorgen dat je buiten belangrijke communicatiestromen valt, en is het moeilijker om te communiceren met je manager als je er niet bent, als je hem überhaupt te pakken kunt krijgen. Desalniettemin, werken op afstand zal populairder worden en kantooruren zullen vervagen. Een van de oorzaken is geldbesparing. Bedrijven willen zo efficiënt mogelijk werken en een armada telewerkers stelt…
