In May, Bischoff approached former trade minister and Standard Chartered boss Lord Davies, though he has since accepted two positions as chairman of Hong Kong’s PineBridge Investments and as a partner at US buyout group Corsair Capital.

The deal led the bank to the brink of bankruptcy, forcing it to accept a part-bailout from the government, which still holds a 41 per cent stake.The Treasury yesterday insisted that the recruitment of Daniels’ successor would be a matter for the Lloyds board, adding that UKFI manages the taxpayer’s stake “at arm’s length”. However, government sources said the successful candidate would have to be “the right person at the right price”, suggesting the bank will come under significant political pressure not to lure a banking heavyweight with a generous pay package.Lloyds investors yesterday appeared unruffled by the upheaval, with the shares gaining 2.75 per cent to close at 77.41p.

UN warns of currency war threat

first_img Share Tags: NULL whatsapp WORRIES over the US economy sent the dollar tumbling against most world currencies yesterday, prompting the UN to warn countries against an all-out currency war. The dollar reached $1.41 against the euro and near-parity with the Australian dollar, while a rush to hedge against a weak US dollar sent gold prices to a record high.Weakness in the dollar, the world’s reserve currency, could encourage other nations to devalue to keep their exports cheap by comparison. The fall came as the US revealed that its trade deficit widened 8.8 per cent to $46.4bn (£29bn) in August, driven by a record level of Chinese imports. The Chinese yuan then reached 6.65 against the dollar, its strongest closing level since July 2005. The new high fuels US arguments that China is unfairly keeping its currency cheap to support its exports abroad. The UN warned yesterday that any instability in the currency market has the potential to wreck the fragile recovery of global trade.“We have seen recently fluctuations of major currencies in a significant manner. There is a danger of a currency war,” said James Zhan of the UN’s trade body. Traders have flocked to sell the dollar since Tuesday, when the US Federal Reserve gave a strong indication that it was prepared to restart quantitative easing to kickstart the flagging economy. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times KCS-content Thursday 14 October 2010 9:49 pmcenter_img whatsapp UN warns of currency war threat Show Comments ▼ Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

The house is built right in the middle of typical suburb residential quarters found everywhere in Japan. Surrounded by a mixture of one- and two-storey buildings, the house features a courtyard in the middle of the building to secure privacy and has a simple square outer appearance molded in the shape of the lot it is built. Most windows face the courtyard rather than the outside, creating a private yet brightly sunlit environment. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaFirst, open the lattice door to enter the courtyard, where you will find a garden with trees and a path to the entrance. The designer’s focus here is on the stereoscopic proportion of the courtyard. In order to make the courtyard facing skyward a place where residents can feel as much at home and comfortable as possible, the roof height is minimized to reduce oppressive feeling and to maximize the portion of sky in the viewer’s sight. Save this picture!© Hiroshi Ueda Another focus of the courtyard design is the sense of depth. The courtyard takes a complicated planar form due to walls and glass panels separating indoor and outdoor spaces. Every wall and glass panel facing the courtyard is aligned next to each other in a degree other than horizontal or vertical. As a result, you may experience the sensation that a flow pulling you towards the depth of the courtyard. In the same manner, a gaze on the other side of the house across the courtyard gives you such a sensation of depth that it may feel as if you are looking at a separate house. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe indoor traffic line surrounds the courtyard to achieve the longest possible flow within the confines of space. Bedrooms and living rooms face a veranda, which also serves as the only access to these rooms. In places like Japan, where four seasons are appreciated and enjoyed throughout the year, the outdoor veranda-cum-corridor may provide the dwellers with pleasant diversion. Actually, this outdoor corridor used to be a very common feature of traditional houses in Japan.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow less’Emerging Realities’ International Student WorkshopArticles’Urban Sponge’ Competition Entry / Gemawang Swaribathoro + Indra Nugraha + Morian Sa…Articles Share Houses Area:  105 m² Area:  105 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Sky Catcher House / acaaSave this projectSaveSky Catcher House / acaa Year:  Japan ArchDaily Projects CopyHouses•Atsugi-shi, Japan “COPY” Year:  Save this picture!© Hiroshi Ueda+ 23 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/289966/sky-catcher-house-acaa Clipboard 2012 Photographs Architects: acaa Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/289966/sky-catcher-house-acaa Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeacaaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAtsugi-shiHousesJapanPublished on November 05, 2012Cite: “Sky Catcher House / acaa” 05 Nov 2012.

Height restriction of the area is not strict therefore it is surrounded by buildings with various heights. The site is sandwiched between old two- storey house and five-storey apartment building. Our client requested us to design an ‘open’ house in this densely populated environment.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIn order to avoid unnecessary exposure to public view, we interpret this site condition as a sort of ‘natural’ condition specific to the site. Standing on the empty lot and carefully observing ‘open’ spots around it, we begin to naturally envision the best location for courtyard and roof terrace, which are two important elements requested by the client. Bedrooms are located on the first floor, Living/Dining/Kitchen space on the second floor and loft space above kitchen. Locations of all openings are carefully worked out in section, so that they can open up towards the ‘open’ spots. Heights and locations of walls around courtyard and roof terrace are designed according to various specific factors of the site.  Save this picture!PlansIn view of exterior factor we considered location of windows of surrounding buildings, location of the roof, and height from the ground. And in view of interior factors we considered view from inside, natural light, roof, ceiling inclination. We make sure that openings are placed at appropriate height and location so that they can open up the house towards outside while keeping privacy. Space and form of the house are decided in accordance with the client’s requests and the surrounding ‘nature’, without any arbitrary reasons. Walls are colored in black and white; basically exterior walls are painted black and interior walls white. And in some areas white interior walls extend outwards and meet black exterior walls, and in some areas white interior volumes are made visible from outside. Project gallerySee allShow lessDaniel Libeskind: The Art of Memory LectureEventWXY’s Claire Weisz “Ecological Barriers: Holding Sea Levels at Bay” LectureEvent Share CopyHouses•Tokyo, Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/359448/nn-house-kozo-yamamoto Clipboard Year:  Houses Projectslast_img read more

Guerra arancelaria de Trump ataca trabajadoras/es

first_imgLa administración de Trump impuso aranceles a las 12:01 a.m. del 6 de julio a productos chinos con un valor de $34 mil millones. El gobierno chino respondió de inmediato con sus propios aranceles sobre la carne de cerdo, la soja y los automóviles de EUA.“Las acciones equivocadas de EUA han violado descaradamente las reglas de la Organización Mundial del Comercio, atacaron la sostenibilidad económica mundial y obstaculizaron la recuperación de la economía mundial”, dijo Lu Kang, vocero del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de China, en una conferencia de prensa. “Será desastroso para las corporaciones multinacionales, las pequeñas y medianas empresas y las/os consumidores corrientes en todo el mundo”.El Ministerio de Comercio de China afirmó que Estados Unidos “ha lanzado la mayor guerra comercial en la historia económica hasta ahora.” (New York Times, 6 de julio).Trump está amenazando con imponer aranceles sobre bienes que actualmente son importados cada año de China por un valor de $450 mil millones. También ha impuesto aranceles a los bienes importados de México y Canadá, así como de la Unión Europea. Un arancel es básicamente un impuesto a los bienes importados en un país.Trump argumenta que los aranceles sobre el acero y el aluminio son necesarios para reforzar la producción estadounidense y “proteger la seguridad nacional estadounidense”, ya que los metales son necesarios en la producción de armas. También argumenta que los aranceles “protegerán” y generarán empleos a las/os trabajadores en estas industrias.Lo que es indiscutible es que los precios subirán para las/os trabajadores. El acero y el aluminio se utilizan para crear una gran cantidad de productos básicos, desde latas para alimentos hasta edificios y puentes, y el acero y el aluminio serán más caros con los aranceles. La guerra arancelaria de Trump ha condenado a las/os trabajadores estadounidenses con precios más altos, lo que afecta particularmente a las/os jubilados y a quienes tienen ingresos fijos, sin importar el impacto en general a la economía.Pero una mirada más cercana a los aranceles, así como a la tecnología de fabricación, muestra cómo las/os trabajadores estadounidenses también serán golpeadas/os por la pérdida de empleos.Aranceles y tecnología afectan trabajadoras/esSi bien los aranceles podrían ser un impulso para los fabricantes de acero y aluminio, otras compañías que utilizan estos metales – que eran más baratos cuando se importaban – perderán y tendrán que recortar empleos.La tarifa de Trump para el acero y el aluminio afectará con mayor fuerza las importaciones procedentes de Canadá, principal proveedor de EUA en 2017, especialmente en la industria automotriz estadounidense. Un estudio del 2004 de la Asociación de Transporte Fronterizo muestra que 257.000 empleos en Michigan y $13 mil millones en producción anual dependen de los enlaces de producción entre Detroit y la ciudad fronteriza de Windsor en Ontario.La General Motors declaró el 28 de junio que una nueva ola de aranceles sobre sus productos podría conducir a “menos inversión, menos empleos y salarios más bajos”. Las/os trabajadores encontrarían que los precios de los automóviles aumentarían sustancialmente, y el costo de los automóviles menos costosos sería el más elevado. Las/os trabajadores perderán puestos de trabajo ya que los precios más altos conducen a una reducción en las ventas.El Mercatus Center, un compañía de investigación de mercados de la Universidad George Mason, señala: “Como resultado de los nuevos impuestos a la importación de acero, el fabricante de clavos más grande de los Estados Unidos está a punto de cerrar. La compañía Mid-Continent Nail, con sede en Missouri, ya ha despedido al 12 por ciento de su fuerza de trabajo. “Mid-Continent representa una pequeña parte de la economía de EUA, pero su dilema muestra cómo una guerra arancelaria puede impactar a las/os trabajadores aquí.Históricamente, la tarifa de Smoot-Hawley, que entró en vigor en 1930 y ciertamente contribuyó a la severidad de la Gran Depresión, redujo el comercio internacional en más del 60 por ciento. El economista Paul Krugman estima que los nuevos aranceles de los Estados Unidos y las respuestas a ellos podrían reducir el comercio internacional en un 70 por ciento. Eso significa que los 10 millones de trabajadoras/es de Estados Unidos que participan en el comercio internacional podrían enfrentar grandes pérdidas de empleos como resultado. (New York Times, 17 de junio)Incluso si los aranceles aplicados a los competidores extranjeros aumentan las ganancias de las empresas de acero y aluminio con sede en los EUA, no hay evidencia de que estas empresas contraten a más trabajadoras/es.Los avances tecnológicos en la fabricación significa que menos trabajadoras/es pueden producir más bienes, y el uso de la tecnología continúa reforzando esa tendencia. De acuerdo con la Sociedad Americana de Ingeniería Mecánica (ASME por siglas en inglés): “En 2015, la producción manufacturera por trabajador/a fue de $482.242; por el contrario, cada trabajador/a en 2000 produjo $336.847 en dólares de 2015. En 1976, la producción ajustada a la inflación fue de solo $276.525”. (Tinyurl.com/y9fy9f7r)ASME señala que, con el aumento de la automatización de las fábricas, entre 2000 y 2016, las/os trabajadores estadounidenses perdieron 5 millones de empleos, incluso cuando la producción manufacturera creció.Entonces, si los aranceles pudieran eliminar todos los déficits comerciales de manufactura con otros países, eso aún no se acercaría a la pérdida de empleos perdidos por la tecnología.Necesaria acción independiente de trabajadoras/esEn Bretaña, que enfrenta un arancel del 25 por ciento sobre su acero, el sindicato de trabajadores siderúrgicos – que se llama Community (Comunidad) – señaló que aunque estos aranceles ofrecerán a las empresas siderúrgicas estadounidenses cierta protección en un momento en que hay una superproducción del acero a nivel mundial, pondrá en peligro los empleos de las/os trabajadores.Roy Rickhuss, el secretario general de Community, dijo: “Esta noticia es muy preocupante para la industria siderúrgica del Reino Unido. Donald Trump está poniendo en riesgo puestos de trabajo en ambos lados del Atlántico”. (Community-tu.org)El sindicato United Steelworkers representa a trabajadoras/es tanto en los Estados Unidos como en Canadá. Su presidente Leo Gerard generalmente apoya las políticas comerciales de Trump, pero quiere que Canadá quede exenta. En la actualidad, Trump se opone a las exenciones, por lo que algunas/os miembros del USW, es decir, las/os trabajadores de los EUA dedicados a la producción de acero, se beneficiarían de las políticas tarifarias, mientras que las/os trabajadores de Canadá no.El gobierno estadounidense está en proceso de renegociar el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte. El TLCAN ha regulado el comercio entre Canadá, México y los EUA desde el 1 de enero de 1994. Este comercio asciende a $600 mil millones al año. El TLCAN le dio una apertura a la agricultura estadounidense que le permitió aniquilar a millones de agricultoras/es mexicanos, a la vez que le brindó a los fabricantes estadounidenses un acceso más fácil a las/os trabajadores de bajos salarios. También intensificó la dominación estadounidense de la más pequeña economía canadiense.A pesar de las ventajas del flujo fácil de bienes y servicios para los capitalistas en ambos lados de la frontera, Trump ha amenazado con alejarse del TLC si no se reconfigura para favorecer aún más a los EUA.En lugar de exigir exenciones de los aranceles que afectan a algunos de sus miembros, los sindicatos deben defender los intereses de todas/os los trabajadores. Como escribió el fundador del Partido Workers World-Mundo Obrero Sam Marcy en 1993 sobre el papel de los sindicatos: “Seguir (con la política comercial de los EUA) es convertirse en un socio silencioso del papel devastador del capital financiero de EUA en el exterior y en aquí en EUA. … El objetivo real del sindicalismo debería ser forjar un acuerdo de solidaridad entre los sindicatos” internacionalmente. (tinyurl.com/y9jynjrh)En las palabras del himno de las/os trabajadores “Solidaridad para siempre”:“Cuando la inspiración del sindicato a través de la sangre de los obreros corra,No habrá ningún poder mayor en ningún lugar bajo el sol;Sin embargo, qué fuerza en la tierra es más débil que la débil fuerza de uno,Pero el sindicato nos hace fuertes”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
