Is the Market at a Historic Turning Point? Top Watchers Say. . .
2012-06-01 23:33:00
“Richard Russell will likely be right about the broader markets entering a bear market,” said Jeff Clark, a senior precious metals analyst with Casey Research. “Otherwise, where is all the economic growth going to come from that will nullify the otherwise unavoidable impact of record debt, obscene deficit spending and runaway money printing?” he asked. “As a gold equities investor, though, this doesn’t worry me because the very reasons we’ll likely have a bear market in the overall stock market are the same ones that will drive gold and then gold stocks higher. In fact, gold is becoming less of an investment and more of … [visit site to read . . . → Read More: Is the Market at a Historic Turning Point? Top Watchers Say. . .

According to the FAO, global food production needs to increase by 70% by 2050 just to keep the world adequately fed. That’s an enormous uplift compared to current levels.

The Gold Report: Robert, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that the European debt crisis could “get a lot worse.” What’s your view on the likely outcome? Robert Cohen: I think he’s right. It has the potential to get worse before it gets better. Europeans are going to have to deal with some sort of Eurozone fracture. Greece could certainly exit the euro within weeks rather than years. It has an election on June 17, and it will probably be bankrupt by the end of June. TGR: Can the Eurozone survive without Greece?

Contracting with the Federal Government? Get ready to say hello to your ne
2012-05-24 21:30:00
 By: Joseph A. Hackenbracht Federal contractors need to prepare for another change in the online environment. Currently scheduled to take place in late July of this year, the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system will no longer exist. The Federal government is starting a new registration system called the System for Award Management, or SAM [Uncle, get it?] for short. In addition to replacing CCR, SAM will incorporate the Federal Agency Registration [FedReg], the Online Representations and Certifications Application [ORCA], and the Excluded Parties List System [EPLS]. For all those contractors already registered in CCR and ORCA, you can breathe a sigh of relief; the Federal government is going to transfer your information into the new system. Although some of the terminology is changing, enough has remained the same that SAM should be familiar, so when the time comes for a contractor to renew its registration, it will not have too much trouble.

The largest changes were Australia increasing reserves by 100 tons (t) and Canada decreasing reserves by 70 t.

Rasmussen: 64% Prefer a Government With Fewer Services And Lower Taxes
2012-05-22 19:24:00
Says the polling firm: Most voters continue to prefer a more hands-off government in return for lower taxes. A new¬† Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a government with fewer services and lower taxes over one with more services and higher taxes. That’s unchanged from last month and consistent with findings in regular surveys since late 2006. Just 25% prefer a government with more services. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure which size government they prefer. (To see survey question wording, click here.) So does anyone still think Obama would lose to a real conservative, assuming the GOP had the actual courage to run one in a Presidential race? How this will play in a race between socialist and liberal lite, remains a question, however.

Another 4G Player Quitting Market: Is Government Driving Them Away?
2012-05-21 11:30:00
India’s Telecom Sector has been both a success story and a nightmare for many people. While number of telecom subscribers in India is at a record high, and looking bullish for the future, all is not well. The combination of delays, missed deadlines and inefficient regulation has caused a lot of turmoil. A recent example would be the re-auctioning of 2G Spectrum Licenses that caused companies like Telenor to want to leave the country and Loop Mobile to greatly reduce its operations. The 3G Spectrum was auctioned off at record high prices with lakhs of crores of rupees entering the Government’s coffers. Yet the Roaming Agreement controversy between major operators and the Government took away a lot of sheen and exposed the fact that all was not well. When we look at the 4G Spectrum, a glum picture exists too. The 4G Auction had taken place in 2010 and a lot of large players purchased spectrum. US Chipmaker, Qualcomm had purchased spectrum in 4 circles, and we know that th...

Vodafone Government Saga Rekindles With $3.7 Bn Fine

Since both the companies were registered out of India, according to the Indian IT Law no tax could be imposed on it.

This amount was later feared to double to Rs, 24,000 Crore or $5 Billion. The case was moved to the Supreme Court of India, which ruled, in January 2012, that the Government had no rig...
