Macro Thoughts

Bernanke's Freedom for Manouevre is not nearly as wide as his Rhetoric.

There are many open questions. One is size. Mr. Bullard says doing
more than $1 trillion of purchases per year would give him "pause"
because that's how much net debt the Treasury will issue this year,
meaning the Fed would be financing it all.

Home Thoughts

The Middle One Layla came back from Batian's View near Naro Moru. She
was describing her Escapades on Zip Lines and frightening me and then
watching my reaction and then she got too carried away. Hannah, of
course, gets in my Bed in the early Hours and then complains when I
have the lights on, as I am getting ready. I have yet to persuade her

Annals of Innovation Small Change Why the revolution will not be tweeted Malcolm Gladwell New Yorker
Information & Communication Technology

The world, we are told, is in the midst of a revolution. The new tools
of social media have reinvented social activism. With Facebook and
Twitter and the like, the traditional relationship between political
authority and popular will has been upended, making it easier for the
powerless to collaborate, coördinate, and give voice to their
concerns. When ten thousand protesters took to the streets in Moldova
in the spring of 2009 to protest against their country’s Communist
government, the action was dubbed the Twitter Revolution, because of
the means by which the demonstrators had been brought together. A few
months after that, when student protests rocked Tehran, the State
Department took the unusual step of asking Twitter to suspend
scheduled maintenance of its Web site, because the Administration
didn’t want such a critical organizing tool out of service at the
height of the demonstrations. “Without Twitter the people of Iran
would not have felt empowered and confident to stand up for freedom
and democracy,” Mark Pfeifle, a former national-security adviser,
later wrote, calling for Twitter to be nominated for the Nobel Peace
Prize. Where activists were once defined by their causes, they are now
defined by their tools. Facebook warriors go online to push for
change. “You are the best hope for us all,” James K. Glassman, a
former senior State Department official, told a crowd of cyber
activists at a recent conference sponsored by Facebook, A. T. & T.,
Howcast, MTV, and Google. Sites like Facebook, Glassman said, “give
the U.S. a significant competitive advantage over terrorists. Some
time ago, I said that Al Qaeda was ‘eating our lunch on the Internet.’
That is no longer the case. Al Qaeda is stuck in Web 1.0. The Internet
is now about interactivity and conversation.”

Robert Darnton has written, “The marvels of communication technology
in the present have produced a false consciousness about the past—even
a sense that communication has no history, or had nothing of
importance to consider before the days of television and the
Internet.” But there is something else at work here, in the outsized
enthusiasm for social media. Fifty years after one of the most
extraordinary episodes of social upheaval in American history, we seem
to have forgotten what activism is.

All the volunteers were required to provide a list of personal
contacts—the people they wanted kept apprised of their activities—and
participants were far more likely than dropouts to have close friends
who were also going to Mississippi. High-risk activism, McAdam
concluded, is a “strong-tie” phenomenon.

“Social networks are particularly effective at increasing motivation,”
Aaker and Smith write. But that’s not true. Social networks are
effective at increasing participation—by lessening the level of
motivation that participation requires.

The Palestine Liberation Organization originated as a network, and the
international-relations scholars Mette Eilstrup-Sangiovanni and
Calvert Jones argue in a recent essay in International Security that
this is why it ran into such trouble as it grew: “Structural features
typical of networks—the absence of central authority, the unchecked
autonomy of rival groups, and the inability to arbitrate quarrels
through formal mechanisms—made the P.L.O. excessively vulnerable to
outside manipulation and internal strife.”

if you’re taking on a powerful and organized establishment you have
to be a hierarchy


I disagree with the Ultimate Conclusion. We remain in the Start Up
Phase of Developments. Social Media is very late Cycle, has only
started to seriously scale across the World in the last 24 months and
is highly correlated to the Mobile Phone. Therefore, I feel, on
balance, that the Relationship between the Rulers and the Ruled The
World over is in a State of serious Flux. Moreover, that Citizen Power
[via Collaboration] is something thats evolving. c21st Activism does
not look or feel like c20th Activism and I think Gladwell this time
around is yearning for some Prelapsarian Past.

Fed Mulls New Bond Approach WSJ
World Of Finance

Federal Reserve officials are considering new tactics for the purchase
of long-term U.S. Treasury securities to bolster a disappointingly
slow recovery.

Rather than announce massive bond purchases with a finite end, as they
did in 2009 to shock the U.S. financial system back to life, Fed
officials are weighing a more open-ended, smaller-scale program that
they could adjust as the recovery unfolds.

But having pushed short-term rates to near zero, it now has to devise
new, untested approaches at almost every turn. A misstep could lead to
unintended consequences, one factor that makes officials wary and
investors jittery about its every move.In theory, buying long-term
bonds pushes other interest rates down because it reduces the supply
of debt available to investors, pushing up the price of this debt and
the yield down.In March 2009, the Fed said it would buy $1.7 trillion
worth of Treasury and mortgage-backed securities over a six to nine
month period—known inside the Fed as the "shock and awe" approach.

Under the alternative approach gaining favor inside the Fed, it would
announce purchases of a much smaller amount for some brief period and
leave open the question of whether it would do more, a decision that
would turn on how the economy is doing. This would give officials more
flexibility in the face of an uncertain recovery.Most economists at
the Fed and outside, though not all, believe that the Fed's decision
to embark on what's known as "quantitative easing"—buying bonds—after
cutting its target for short-term interest rates to near zero helped
prevent an even deeper recession.

Fed officials have done little to dissuade investors that they might do more.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke last week reiterated his dissatisfaction
with the recovery, saying the economy has failed to grow "with
sufficient vigor to significantly reduce the high level of

Markets anticipate the Fed will pull the trigger, barring some
surprise turn in the economy. Economists at Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
estimate the Fed will end up purchasing at lest another $1 trillion in
securities, and estimate that would push long-term interest rates down
by a further 0.25 percentage point.

"The shock and awe approach is rarely the optimal way to conduct
monetary policy," he says. "I really do not think it is the right way
to go except in really exceptional circumstances."

There are many open questions. One is size. Mr. Bullard says doing
more than $1 trillion of purchases per year would give him "pause"
because that's how much net debt the Treasury will issue this year,
meaning the Fed would be financing it all.

"Given the disagreement about the need for additional easing within
the FOMC, retaining some flexibility might be critical to the
adoption" of more quantitative easing, Goldman Sachs analysts said

The Fed concluded its $1.7 trillion purchases of mortgage and Treasury
bonds in March. Researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York
estimate that the program reduced long-term interest rates by between
0.3 percentage point and 1 full percentage point.
The Fed took a step toward new purchases in August. It said it would
begin replacing maturing mortgage bonds by purchasing Treasury debt to
keep the overall level of its securities holdings constant.


The Markets are much more sceptical today about this QE Money Printing
Wizardry and I believe Bernanke's actual room for Manouevre much more
delimited than his Rhetoric allows.

What Happens in Vegas New Yorker

In 1965, a hotel owner named Jay Sarno began construction on a new
hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, and decided to set his creation apart
from the competition by modelling it on a Roman palace. Caesars Palace
was really no different from any other big hotel, but the Roman arches
and columns stuck on its façade, not to mention the tunic-clad
cocktail waitresses inside, were such a hit that the place spawned a
generation of imitations, each aiming to outdo the last in eye-popping
extravagance. Las Vegas became the world’s largest theme park, with
hotels intended to make you feel that you are in Venice, or Paris, or
Egypt, or New York, or Bellagio, or on a pirate’s island, or among
King Arthur and his knights. Or—given that these weird simulacra have
become famous in their own right—that you are, quite simply, in Vegas.
Sarno’s palace was vulgar and crude, but his achievement is one that
even the most accomplished architects can only envy: he defined a
city’s style.

Central banks sell the least gold since 1999 Marketwatch
World Of Finance

Major central banks and the International Monetary Fund over the past
12 months have reportedly sold the smallest amount of gold since an
agreement to cap gold sales was put in place in 1999. Central banks
account for about 20% of above-ground gold in the world, and fewer
sales mean gold supplies are likely to continue to lag demand,
boosting prices.

Dubai Ruler Says ‘We Are Back’ After Debt Accord Bloomberg
Emerging Markets

Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum said the emirate is
recovering after state- controlled holding company Dubai World reached
a debt- restructuring settlement with creditors.

“We are back. Of course we are back,” Sheikh Mohammed said in an
interview with Bloomberg Television’s “InBusiness With Margaret
Brennan” at the FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky,
yesterday. “This is a challenge. Life would be boring if there’s no

Dubai World, one of three main holding companies controlled by Sheikh
Mohammed, said Sept. 10 that 99 percent of creditors had agreed to
alter the terms on $24.9 billion of debt after the deepest global
financial crisis since the 1930s led to a 50 percent drop in property
prices in the emirate. Dubai amassed $109 billion in debt to turn
itself into a financial, logistics and tourism hub, with about $15.5
billion due this year, the International Monetary Fund
estimates.Dubai’s vision is unchanged after projects such as Meydan
LLC’s racecourse and Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building
developed by Emaar Properties PJSC, were completed, Sheikh Mohammed
said. “All the projects that were there are going ahead,” although
some may be delayed for six months to a year, he said.

“Life goes on,” said Sheikh Mohammed, who was taking part in a
12-hour, 160-kilometer endurance race.

Dubai’s benchmark stock index has gained 6.7 percent since the Dubai
World announcement, trimming its loss for the year to 5.8 percent. Abu
Dhabi’s ADX General Index has risen 5.2 percent in the past two weeks.
The two emirates are the two biggest of the seven sheikhdoms that make
up the United Arab Emirates.The Dubai World and Nakheel announcements
“are steps in the right direction” and have helped improve investor
sentiment, Ali Taqi, a portfolio manager at A/T Capital Management in
Dubai. “The completion of pending real-estate projects is a sign of
real-estate companies getting back on track. On the other hand, these
projects will create further oversupply, thus the real-estate market
could get worse before it gets better.”The emirate’s property prices
are unlikely to recover any time soon as 41,000 new homes are expected
to be completed by the end of this year, adding to a glut of homes,
according to Colliers International estimates in May. Builders in
Dubai have delayed or canceled developments worth about $330 billion,
Dubai-based market researcher Proleads estimates.

The Dubai government will seek to raise about $1 billion from a bond
sale this week, two bankers familiar with the plan said Sept. 23. The
bond sale will tap the market for the first time since Dubai World’s
debt restructuring.

“When I talk, I talk about Dubai, but we have to talk about the whole
U.A.E. as a country,” Sheikh Mohammed said. “We do things in Abu
Dhabi, we do things in Dubai, we do things in Sharjah. But the
completion will be great.”


They are emerging from the FAT TAIL but the Bounce will not be of the
same Velocity as the DownDraft.

“We may not recognize the results,” Haj Majid Sowar NCP’s mobilization secretary #Sudan Bloomberg

Sudan’s ruling party said it may reject the results of Southern
Sudan’s vote on independence in January unless the south allows free
campaigning and pulls troops out of disputed areas.The authorities in
Southern Sudan have stifled campaigning and deployed their soldiers
outside of areas stipulated by a 2005 peace agreement that ended two
decades of civil war between the north and south, Haj Majid Sowar, the
National Congress Party’s mobilization secretary, told reporters today
in Khartoum, the capital.

“We may not recognize the results,” he said. Sudan may take its
complaints to the United Nations, the U.S., the African Union and
other parties involved in monitoring the implementation of the peace
agreement, he said.

The independence vote is a key component of the peace accord.
President Umar al-Bashir’s NCP and the former rebels of the Sudan
People’s Liberation Movement haven’t agreed on post-referendum
arrangements such as the regions’ responsibility for foreign debt,
sharing the nation’s oil wealth and citizenship rights in both

“The first thing that will be dropped from the southerners if they
choose secession is the citizenship,” said Sowar, who is also Sudan’s
minister for youth and sports.

Wal-Mart Bids $4.6 Billion for South Africa's Massmart @wsjafrica
Retail & Manufacturing

Wal-Mart's proposed offer—the company's biggest acquisition in more
than a decade—would represent a relatively high premium for Massmart,
a 290-store chain operating in 13 African nations.Yet a deal would
give the Bentonville, Ark., giant a critical foothold to expand in
Africa and allow Wal-Mart to beat European multinational rivals
Carrefour SA, Tesco PLC and Metro AG into the potentially lucrative
sub-Saharan market.Massmart would serve as "a fantastic entry point to
a broader part of the continent," said Andy Bond, a former chief
executive of Wal-Mart's U.K. subsidiary Asda, who is spearheading the
purchase. Massmart already is expanding beyond its South Africa base,
Mr. Bond said in an interview Monday.

Wal-Mart's African foray is risky, however. The offer is roughly 13
times Massmart's pretax earnings and would place Wal-Mart into a
politically combustible region.

"Massmart is well positioned as a springboard for sub-Saharan Africa,
but we believe that it will take a much longer time period for the
company to earn its cost of capital in Africa," said Janney Montgomery
Scott analyst David Strasser. "For every relatively stable country
like Botswana, there is a Zimbabwe."

Founded in 1990, Massmart operates several chains, including Game
general-merchandise stores, Makro warehouse-club stores and Builders
Warehouse for construction and home improvement.Massmart is one of
several large chains, including Shoprite Holdings Ltd. and Woolworths
Holdings Ltd., that dominate South Africa and have expanded into
neighboring countries. Massmart reported sales of 47.55 billion rand
in the fiscal year through June, up 10% from a year earlier.

Massmart's shares closed 11% higher at 149 rand in Johannesburg,
giving the company a market value of about 30 billion rand and
indicating that Wal-Mart may have to adjust its offer somewhat higher.
Wal-Mart shares fell 60 cents to $53.48 in 4 p.m. composite trading on
the New York Stock Exchange.


You know Africa is popping over the Radar when Wal-mart elect to
conduct their biggest acquisition in 10 Years on that very Continent.
Last Year India Inc. closed its second biggest Acquisition ever via
the purchase by Bharti of the Zain Africa Assets, One senses a Tipping
Point has been past and what was an Investment Trickle risks turning
into a Deluge.

With respect to the Political Risk Indicators. The Broad Trend has
been one way and thats lower. There are a few Recalcitrants but the
c21st has arrived on Africa's shores [predominantly through the
Arrival of the Mobile Phone - Which has now connected Africa to each
other and The World] and the Landscape a new and disjunctive one.

The Tape is often the most accurate messenger. This Year South Africa
sold 400% more Bonds to Foreign Investors than in any previous Year.
Thats a Step Change and a Rising Tide.

Mumias to start production of ethanol next year, says Kidero Nation
N.S.E Equities - Industrial & Allied

Mumias Sugar Company plans to start production of ethanol by the end
of next year.The plant that is expected to produce about 22 million
litres of ethanol a year will be the latest addition to the firm’s
portfolio.According to the company, the ethanol will be targeted for
sale within the East African Community and Comesa member states.It
already has a co-generation plant and is working on the finer details
of a carbon trading initiative at its Mumias factory.

A consortium of Ecobank and Commercial Bank of Africa will finance the
project at Sh1.6 billion.The company will, however, raise the rest of
the Sh3.6 billion total costs from its reserves.

Last year, the government through the Energy Regulation Commission
(ERC) gazetted the blending of fuel with ethanol.This was expected to
start this month at the Kenya Pipeline Company depots in Eldoret,
Kisumu and Nakuru at 10 per cent with petrol.


Shareholders have yet to factor this Income Stream into the Earnings Curve.

Mumias beats local firms to carbon millions Business Daily

Mumias Sugar Company has become the first Kenyan company to receive
payment for reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, paving the way for
others to open fresh income streams from carbon trading.The sugar
miller will receive Sh22 million from selling 43,000 tonnes of carbon
dioxide arising from its electricity generation plant that uses sugar

Carbon trading involves the purchase of credits by mainly European and
Asian firms that have exceeded their emissions limits.Trading happens
in exchanges in the US and Europe.Mr Peter Kebati, the Mumias chief
finance officer, said the carbon credits arose from electricity
generated between May 2009 and February this year.The miller earned
Sh359 million from the power it sold to KPLC in the year to June.

“We expect a minimum price of $6.5 for every tonne and we plan to
apply for new verification for the period of March to December this
year,” said Mr Kebati.

Under the deal, Mumias sold its carbon credits to Japanese Carbon
Finance, which will shop for buyers at the global climate
exchanges.KenGen hopes to sell 177,600 tonnes of carbon annually by
generating power from geothermal sources.

The announcement by Mumias that they are set to receive payment is
expected to ignite interest in conserving the environment and entering
the climate market now estimated to be worth more than $30 billion
(Sh2.1 trillion) by Unep.

“Lots of companies are sitting on huge carbon assets,” says Tom Owino,
the vice president of the local office of JP Morgan Climate Care.
“People are aware, but the proposals they present are poorly done,” he
