Macro Thoughts

QE2 or Titanic ?

Home Thoughts

I sometimes feel I am at the very Vortex of the Maelstrom. My older
Daughters are running their own Social Lives and I have had to become
quite aggressive about asserting my Rights as a Father otherwise I am
sure those Rights would lapse. The Assertion tends to revolve around
the Fact that The Older Girls should greet me when I get home. I have
noted the Kisses I received are of the 'Mwah' variety hurried and
hardly felt. Hannah has her own Gig going as well and her latest
Question was this

'Are these stories Pretend or real?'

And with that My Bubble has been pricked.

Rousseff Vows to End Brazil Poverty, Not Overspend Bloomberg
Law & Politics

Dilma Rousseff said her main goal is to eradicate poverty in Brazil
while maintaining a lid on spending after being elected the country’s
first female president.Rousseff, who had never before run for
political office, won 56 percent of the vote yesterday compared with
44 percent for Jose Serra, the former governor of Sao Paulo state. The
former cabinet chief dedicated her victory to Brazil’s women, and
choked with tears as she remembered the legacy left by her mentor,
President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

“We’ll care for our economy with complete responsibility,” Rousseff,
62, told supporters in Brasilia. “The Brazilian people don’t accept
governments that spend at unsustainable levels and for that reason we
will make every effort to improve public spending.”

Rousseff won by promising continuity with Lula, whose policies lifted
21 million Brazilians out of poverty since 2003 and created a record
15 million jobs. While lacking the charisma of her former boss, who
leaves office Jan. 1 with a record 85 percent approval rating, she’ll
be helped by the fastest economic growth in more than two decades.

“For the first time since the Second World War we’re going to have a
political transition that will have little impact on economic
activity,” Carlos Langoni, a former central bank president, said in a
phone interview from Rio de Janeiro.

Under Lula’s watch, stocks rose six-fold as the economy expanded at
almost twice the pace of the previous eight years and inflation fell
by a third from a peak of 17.2 percent.

Rousseff is a former Marxist guerrilla who was jailed and tortured by
Brazil’s 1964-1985 military dictatorship. She joined Lula’s Workers’
Party, or PT for its Portuguese initials, on the eve of his election
after serving as energy secretary in Rio Grande do Sul state. She
served as Brazil’s energy minister and chairwoman of state-controlled
oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA before replacing PT stalwart Jose
Dirceu as cabinet chief.

Rousseff’s candidacy was put in doubt when she announced in April 2009
that she was being treated for lymphoma. Five months later, her
doctors pronounced her in “excellent health.”

Food Inflation Rising as Cooking Oil Poised to Catch Grain Gains Bloomberg
Food, Climate & Agriculture

Cooking oils, left behind in this year’s surge in agriculture prices,
are poised to catch up with grains as record demand cuts stockpiles by
the most in 17 years.Inventories of soybean oil and palm oil, used by
Nestle SA and Unilever and in everything from Hellmann’s mayonnaise to
Snickers candy bars, will drop 12 percent in the coming year as China
and India increase consumption 11 percent, U.S. Department of
Agriculture data show. Food prices climbed in September to the highest
level since the crisis in 2008 that sparked riots from Haiti to Egypt,
the United Nations says.

“China’s economy is growing and there’s no reason why the country will
take any less food next week, next month, or next year,” said Steve
Nicholson, a commodity procurement specialist at International Food
Products Corp., a distributor and advisor on food ingredients in
Fenton, Missouri. “We’ve been able to produce more food in the past
2,000 years, but can we do it fast enough to meet the demand from
China and other emerging economies to stave off a crisis?”

Per-capita use of vegetable oils in China has more than doubled in a
decade, said Bill Nelson, a senior economist at Doane Advisory
Services Co., an agricultural research and advisory company in St.

The Standard & Poor’s GSCI Agriculture Index of eight futures climbed
30 percent this year, led by corn, wheat, coffee and cotton, as floods
in Canada, Pakistan and China and drought in Russia and across Europe
killed crops. The economies of China and India, the biggest consumers
of cooking oils, are growing at three times the speed of the U.S.

The CRB/Reuters U.S. Spot Raw Industrials index, a gauge of 22
commodities including butter and soybean oil, rose to an all- time
high on Oct. 25. Meat prices advanced to a two-decade high in August,
according to a UN index.

“The critical period of tightness is yet to come,” said Dorab Mistry,
a director at Godrej International Ltd. who has traded cooking oils
for more than three decades and who correctly predicted the gains in
palm oil and soybean prices since June. “We’re not doing enough to
raise production of vegetable oils and the weather the world over is
troublesome.”A lack of rain in the center-west of Brazil is delaying
planting in a region that grows 47 percent of the country’s soybean
output, the world’s second-largest crop behind the U.S.

While the UN’s Food Price Index rose 23 percent in the 12 months
ending in September, it’s still about 12 percent below the 2008 peak.
Food security is of less concern now than in the last several years
because grains stocks are bigger and a weakened global economy will
stunt demand, Abdolreza Abbassian, a senior economist at the UN FAO,
said last month.

China, the world’s biggest soybean importer, may buy a record 60
million tons in 2010-2011, according to unidentified global grain
trading companies cited by the China National Grain & Oils Information
Center, owned by the state body which manages the country’s food
supply and logistics.

China’s vegetable oils consumption has more than doubled to 22.4
kilograms per capita in the past decade and may reach 28.4 kilograms
in five years, said Nelson from Doane Advisory Services. That compares
with 39 kilograms in the U.S., he said.

“China just keeps taking soybeans and vegetable oils,” said Nicholson
from International Food Products. “It’s more than a little scary how
insatiable their appetite is.”


By Aly-Khan Satchu, September 6, 2010
Nairobi, Kenya

I have a supreme conviction that global food markets are but the
perturbation of a butterflys's wing away from a serious tipping point.
In fact, I would venture that the best way to play the narrative
fallacy that is the "Global Climate Change Denial Camp" is via buying
a basket of breakfast commodities and grains. There are more of us,
our average calorific intake is a multiple of what it was, and we have
toasted the planet -- capping global agricultural output. Narrowing
that perception gap and converting it into real action is going to be
like herding cats.

The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is fond of saying
that the food markets have ample inventory and that there is
absolutely nothing to worry our little heads about. May I refer you to
wheat, which ramped 38 percent higher in July, 3.7 percent in August,
and so far this month a further 7 percent. The reasons are well known:
Russia has undergone a heatwave and Vladimir Putin (probably not keen
on going the way of Indonesia's President Suharto - anger over soaring
food prices after he cut fuel and some food subsidies helped drive him
from power in 1998) immediately cancelled all Russian wheat exports.
This is a perfect example of the asymmetry of the food markets. The
moment there is a hint of trouble, countries start hoarding. It
creates a concertina effect.

Sub-Saharan Africa's GDP The Economist

Growth in sub-Saharan Africa scarcely missed a beat through the global
crisis thanks to improved macroeconomic policy. The good times should
continue. Growth in 2011 is forecast to be rapid and broad-based.
Botswana and South Africa suffered setbacks in 2009, but have returned
to expansion despite increased burdens of debt. The economies of
Ethiopia and Uganda grew rapidly right through the crisis; their
growth rates remain enviable. Strife-riven countries like Eritrea and
Zimbabwe lagged behind in recent years but are looking healthier.
Exports from the region as a whole have yet to recover fully, but
strengthening links with emerging Asia should keep the boom going.

Orascom Tel shares slump on new Algeria conditions Reuters
Information & Communication Technology

Algeria on Sunday told Orascom Telecom it must fulfil new conditions
before it can settle a damaging row over its Algerian mobile phone
unit, sending shares in the Egyptian firm to a 19-month low.The latest
Algerian demands are likely to create fresh doubts about the viability
of a $6.6 billion deal for Russia's Vimpelcom to buy Orascom Telecom
assets, creating the world's fifth-biggest mobile telephone
operator.Orascom Telecom has agreed to talks on the nationalisation of
its Djezzy unit, an outcome that may be the group's best hope of
extricating itself from a once-lucrative relationship now marred by
back-tax claims and mutual recriminations.

But Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia said on Sunday Algeria will
not conclude a deal to buy Djezzy from Orascom until the company
settles all its liabilities in Algeria -- a process which could take
many months and be very expensive.

Djezzy is Orascom Telecom's biggest single source of revenue and some
analysts have said Vimpelcom should walk away from its deal to buy
Orascom assets unless uncertainty over Djezzy's future is resolved
soon.On the Cairo stock exchange, Orascom Telecom's share price
declined 3.6 percent to 4.33 Egyptian pounds, its lowest since March
17, 2009.

"There is fear and uncertainty over OT (Orascom Telecom)," said Tarek
Abaza, head of trading at Naeem Brokerage in Cairo.

Speaking in parliament, the Algerian prime minister confirmed that his
government would go ahead with the nationalisation of Djezzy and that
it recognised only Orascom Telecom -- and not Vimpelcom -- as the

He said experts were evaluating the value of the unit, after which
talks would start on the sum Algeria will pay Orascom Telecom to
nationalise Djezzy.

"The day we reach an agreement on the price, Orascom Telecom Holding
will have to clear its (liabilities with the Algerian government)
before we conclude the deal," Ouyahia told lawmakers.

He said those liabilities included $230 million in back-taxes, plus
penalties, $190 million in fines to the central bank for alleged
currency violations, and a dispute with former employees who claim
they are owed wages.


The Algerian Government is not for being rolled over, so far.

Proposed Road in Serengeti National Park New York Times Slide Show

Scientists say the ecological damage is very hard to predict but
potentially enormous. During the annual migration, the wildebeest
produce more than 800,000 pounds of dung — per day — which nourishes
the grasslands. If the highway fragments that migration and makes the
wildebeest turn back, “the whole ecosystem could crash,” said Bernard
Kissui, a research scientist for the African Wildlife Foundation.

Kenya inflation dips to 3.09 pct y/y in Oct Reuters
Kenyan Economy

Kenya's year-on-year inflation rate fell to 3.09 percent in October
from 3.21 percent in September as telephony charges fell sharply, the
national statistics office said on Monday.

Kenyan call tariffs have dropped by 50 percent in a price war ignited
by pan-African operator Zain in August.

The drop in the communication index outweighed increases in fuel and
food prices.

Kenya Airways Q2 passenger numbers up, cargo down Reuters
N.S.E Equities - Commercial & Services

Kenya Airways said passenger volumes rose in its second quarter ended
September as the World Cup in South Africa and route expansion lifted
performance, helping push its shares higher.The airline, one of the
top carriers in the continent, said on Friday passenger numbers were
up 9 percent to 849,566 over the same period in 2009.

"Uptake of total production at 2,466 million revenue passenger
kilometres represents a 10 percent growth ... The resulting average
cabin factor improved from last year's level of 70 percent to 73
percent," Kenya Airways said in a statement.

"The highest seat kilometre increase was registered in the Southern
Africa region which was at 26.3 percent growth. This was due to
additional frequencies into Johannesburg during the World Cup, Harare
and Lusaka together with the additions of Ndola and Gaborone into the

Kenya Airways said the number of passengers it ferried to Europe was
up 14 percent to 142,567.However, the airline, which is 26 percent
owned by Air France-KLM (AIRF.PA: Quote), said cargo haulage fell 7
percent to 14,118 tonnes, because of strained capacity.The airline
said earlier this month it expected to carry 3 million passengers and
60,000 tonnes of cargo in its year ending next March, thanks to
expansion of its routes in Africa and the Middle East.

Taste of the Presidia
Food, Climate & Agriculture

"Pokot Ash yoghurt from district of West Pokot in Kenya was a real
treat and is a recent addition to the international Presidia. It
tasted really thick and creamy, with a slightly bitter, aromatic
flavour, which was strangely more-ish. The raw milk comes from either
goats or cattle herded by the indigenous communities. Ash, produced
from the burning branches of the native cromwo tree, is added to the
yoghurt to help preserve it, and this creates a slightly odd, speckled
bright grey colour. I was told that locally Pokot Ash yoghurt is a
valuable traditional foodstuff for treating urinary infections."
