Forget Bernanke: Here’s the Next Big Threat Against the U.S. Dollar | Uncommon Wisdom Daily | Marion Caubet | Scoop.it

by Rudy Martin:

 

"You may not be hearing much about the currency war, but I’m here to tell you that it’s still going on, especially in the emerging markets.

 

"The Brazilian finance minister first raised the subject of a currency war two years ago, when the U.S. Federal Reserve instituted its first round of quantitative easing. The program flooded the markets with newly printed dollars, boosting asset prices.

 

"Many other countries were concerned that the move would also devalue the dollar, helping the U.S. inflate its way out of debt and giving its exporters an advantage in the international markets.

 

"That hasn’t happened yet, but emerging-market nations such as China, India and Brazil are still fighting the currency war — trying to reduce the importance of the dollar in international trade.

 

"The first tactic they’re using in this war is the currency swap.

 

"At a summit of the BRIC nations — Brazil, Russia, India and China — earlier this year, they agreed to trade in Chinese yuan, rather than U.S. dollars. Since then, Brazil and Argentina have begun selling their oil for yuan. And last month, HSBC India implemented the first yuan-denominated cross-border trade transaction.

 

"In addition to these currency swaps, emerging markets are also creating their own institutions.

 

"China and Russia recently committed $1 billion each to a new joint investment fund ..."

China and Brazil sign $30bn currency swap deal — RT Business | Marion Caubet | Scoop.it

A $30 billion currency swap deal between Brazil and China is expected to smooth trade between the two countries despite changing global financial conditions and future crises.

 

The agreement was signed on the sidelines of the BRICS summit in South Africa. Plans for the currency swap were first announced last year at the Rio+20 environmental summit. The idea is that the central banks of the two trading partners are to swap local currency worth up to 190 billion yuan or 60 billion reais ($30 billion) in case turmoil hits the global financial system. 

 

"If there were shocks to the global financial market, with credit running short, we'd have credit from our biggest international partner, so there would be no interruption of trade," said Guido Mantega, Brazil's Economy Minister as quoted by BBC.

 

Over the past few years trade between China and Brazil has boosted significantly reaching $75 billion in 2012. China, the world’s second-largest economy, demonstrated stronger interest in ...

Crowdfunding's Big-Bang Moment - HBR | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

Crowdfunding's Big-Bang Moment - HBR | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | Marion Caubet | Scoop.it
A big step by the SEC brings us closer to the crowdfunded equity financing that could change everything.


Excerpt...


But those impressive numbers may be eclipsed by a revolution in venture financing that is only being held back by final government approval: start-ups raising actual investment funds from individuals in exchange for equity or a share of profits.

 

Last week, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission took a major step toward allowing crowdfunded equity financing.  In a 600-page proposed rulemaking, the SEC moved to implement key provisions of the 2012 Jumpstart our Business Startups Act (or JOBS Act). Passed by a large bi-partisan majority of Congress, the JOBS Act directed the agency to simplify many aspects of corporate fundraising and initial public offerings, and to enable individual investors to participate in equity campaigns for small startups.

 

How big a deal is this “democratization” of finance? In a recent HBR article, Paul Nunes and I introduced the term Big Bang Disruption to signify innovations that, thanks to rapidly advancing technology, come out of the box both better and cheaper than alternative solutions already in the marketplace. These upstarts don’t just bedevil incumbents –- they blow them away.  Crowdfunded equity financing has the potential to do that.

I scooped a few articles on crowdfunding last week, focused on two factors: (1) the SEC action regarding small investor participation in crowdfunding, and (2) the use of crowdfunding by large companies to bring different projects to market.


Is crowdsourcing a means to alleviate the pressure on the marketer's budget? Is there a potential return for an investor's funding of a marketer's budget?

By Dave Michaels, Small businesses raising money by selling shares over the Internet wouldn’t have to verify that their backers comply with individual investment limits under a U.S. regulatory proposal set for a vote as soon as  next week. The plan, targeted for an Oct. 23 vote by the Securities and Exchange Commission, would allow such companies to use so-called equity crowdfunding without having to check that a person’s investment is a greater share of their income or net worth than allowed by law, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter who asked not to be named because the proposal hasn’t been made public.

Great to see the SEC listen to feedback from 'the crowd'. The disclosure rule that investors had to prove their net worth or income to the company looking for investment was not realistic nor practical.

Expert: Post-Fiscal Cliff Tax Increases To Cost Floridians $6.5 Billion

Expert: Post-Fiscal Cliff Tax Increases To Cost Floridians $6.5 Billion | Marion Caubet | Scoop.it

FLORIDA (CBSMiami) – Since 2010, a lesser deduction in the Social Security payroll tax has been in effect, acting as a temporary pad to paychecks.

 Now (post-fiscal cliff), that tax will return to its normal level, costing the state an estimated $6.5 billion, Sean Snaith, director of the Institute for Economic Competitiveness at the University of Central Florida, told the Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau.   

In addition, a total of 7.1 million households in the state are to experience a tax increase based on the deal.

 

The median household income in the state is $45,000 annually and those households will pay an additional $900 in taxes next year, the Herald/Times reported. The subtraction of discretionary income is causing some analysts to ask if the deal will harm the state’s fragile economic recovery...

Crowdfunding as the trojan horse of the commons | Marion Caubet | Scoop.it

Crowdfunding implies a whole new paradigm of the network and Internet possibilities to create new socioeconomic models. Summarizing  its recent history, it appeared first as sporadic cases (between the nineties and the new century) with calls for financial support from music band fans and promoters of films, and it  began to replicate in a little over two years with more and more platforms. They bring together many ideas, projects and initiatives of third parties, gradually adding small economic amounts given by the maximum possible users, and allow to raise enough money for initiatives to take place.

Monsanto posts deeper Q4 loss, unveils acquisition

Monsanto Co., the world's largest seed company, reported a deeper quarterly loss on Wednesday as seed sales slipped, and announced the acquisition of a high-tech climate data firm it touted as a "transformational" growth engine.

Investors initially appeared unimpressed with the $930 million purchase of Climate Corp and instead eyed Monsanto's 2014 profit forecast and a drop in gross profit in its key corn and soybean seed business in the latest quarter (all figures US$).

"Seed gross profit was down more than expected," and the 2014 outlook is "too low," BGC Financial analyst Mark Gulley said in a note to investors.

Monsanto, the leading developer of genetically engineered corn, soybeans and other crops, said it expects earnings in the new fiscal year, begun Sept. 1, of $5 to $5.20 per share. It said the Climate Corp purchase would dilute earnings by about 14 cents a share.

Analysts' average profit estimate for 2014 is $5.30 per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Overall, Monsanto lost $249 million, or 47 cents a share, in the fourth quarter, compared with a loss of $229 million (42 cents a share) a year earlier. Analysts on average were expecting a loss of 43 cents a share.

Sales rose to $2.2 billion from $2.1 billion, but sales of its key seeds and genomics business dropped to $1.19 billion from $1.2 billion.

Monsanto officials said in a conference call with investors that the acquisition of San Francisco-based Climate Corp was a transformational event.

The deal, expected to close in the current quarter, will give the seed and chemical giant a technology platform with significant growth potential, the officials said.

"This is the entry ticket into a $20 billion market opportunity and it starts fast," chairman Hugh Grant said on the call. "It's an important addition. It will strengthen our growth rate over the coming decade."

Monsanto and rival DuPont Pioneer have been racing to roll out such data-driven products to help farmers boost production.

The Climate Corp weather data products will be incorporated into Monsanto's FieldScripts precision planting platform for farmers. FieldScripts is designed to help farmers make dozens of decisions related to planting, field management and harvesting.

Monsanto plans to launch FieldScripts across four states on hundreds of thousands of acres at a price of about $10 per acre in 2014.

Monsanto said it would likely take a year to incorporate Climate Corp weather data into its FieldScripts platform, and company officials said they would be determining over that period how much higher they can price the FieldScripts offering, based on how much additional yield the information can give farmers.

Grant said the technology could be sold to farmers planting an array of crops, whether or not Monsanto sells the seeds those farmers use. While corn farmers are Monsanto's core customers, wheat and rice farmers could become customers through the FieldScripts product, he said.

The company also expects to license the technology offering to equipment manufacturers, retailers and others, Grant said.

The Climate Corp acquisition is expected to boost Monsanto's earnings within two years, officials said.

Monsanto said its farm trials in 2012 showed a production boost of five to 10 bushels per acre when FieldScripts was used.

The company said its core business should see good growth in 2014, with margin expansion and an acceleration of sales in corn and soybean products that will include a five to 10 per cent price lift.

The company is rolling out new seed products in Latin America, and as part of its global expansion efforts will be adding corn breeding and production facilities in Eastern Europe, officials said.
