MALTA, nel gruppo di testa tra le nazioni Europee che hanno registrato un miglioramento nel settore trainante dell’economia, le medie e piccole imprese

La Commissione Europea consolida e certifica i successi di Malta nel settore SMEs nel difficile periodo della crisi globale 2008-2013, con reali segnali di ripresa per l’occupazione, il valore aggiunta e la crescita dimensionale

Le SMEs a Malta rappresentano il 99.8% delle attività e valgono il 73.2% del valore aggiunto e il 78% degli occupati del settore privato (non finanziario).

Nel periodo considerato il settore SMEs è cresciuto di 4,800 (+20%) imprese per un totale di 28,905 aziende, il valore aggiunto prodotto è aumentato del 16.7% e ha consentito un’espansione di  7000 posti di lavoro per un totale di 98,000 (+7.7%).

Le proiezioni per il 2015, mostrano un ulteriore incremento di 1,500 nuove imprese, con nuovi 4000 posti di lavoro

L’Italia è un problema per l’Europa, ma soprattutto per i suoi cittadini (Italiani) e per chi ha sottoscritto il suo debito…..in parte le 2 cose coincidono. MALTAway ti aiuta a capire le alternative per la residenza a Malta , la protezione del tuo patrimonio e le azioni da intraprendere per ridurre questo rischio e migliorare la qualità della vita

Con MALTAway un pensiero ed un’analisi globale ed un’azione locale nel paese in Area Europa ed Emea più competitivo

Leggete con attenzione la posizione di una delle migliori penne d’Europa, esci dalla tua area di comfort e percorri una nuova strada

La posizione economica dell’Italia è insostenibile e sfocerà in un default a meno che non vi sia un’immediata e duratura inversione di tendenza sul piano economico

La perdita di capacità industriale è irreversibile, e il debito pubblico continuerà a crescere fino a quando non si renderà necessaria una qualche forma di ristrutturazione.

L’Italia potrà essere “tenuta a galla” artificialmente per un periodo di tempo piuttosto lungo, ma non indefinitamente, perché nel frattempo l’economia reale continuerà a deteriorarsi e il rapporto debito/Pil continuerà ad aumentare.

Feeling the Pain? How Will the Markets Play out from Here? This is a good time to prioritize your holdings in terms of their relative valuations.

Feeling the Pain? How Will the Markets Play out from Here?
This is a good time to prioritize your holdings in terms of their relative valuations. Any stocks that sport high valuations should be candidates for portfolio pruning. If history is any guide, you’ll be able to re-acquire these stocks at lower prices when the market finds its footing.

Investors need to know how each stock in their portfolio is valued. If the major indexes start to move lower, investors will quickly shed their stakes in the market’s highflyers. These were the first to crumble in 2008 when investors fled to the safety of value stocks.

Can The Fed Wait For Wage Inflation to Raise Rates?

To say that the Federal Reserve is behind the curve is an understatement now that we have broken the 6% barrier, of course all the participants who want continued free money will point to all kinds of excuses for maintaining recession era rates to juice everything from stock buybacks to yield carry trades.

The family tree of beer. Want to know which multinational conglomerate owns your favorite brewery?

The family tree of beer. Want to know which multinational conglomerate owns your favorite brewery?

Consolidation is once again in the air for the beer industry. ABInbev is rumored to be exploring an acquisition of SABMiller according to the Wall Street Journal. For its part, SABMiller was rebuffed trying to acquire Heineken.

Either deal would create a company responsible for brewing nearly one fifth of the worlds beer or more, and would have continued the concentration of the global beer market—which, as you can see in the graphic above, has substantially conglomerated in recent years.

Are shareholders getting back the drive in the Battle Against Coca-Cola’s Plan To Pay Its Bosses $13 B ?

Are shareholders getting back the drive in the Battle Against Coca-Cola’s Plan To Pay Its Bosses $13 B ?

Coca-Cola has shelved plans to give its top executives up to 340 million shares worth around $13 billion, after investors, including its biggest shareholder Warren Buffett, called the packages “excessive.”
The drinks company has now revised the pay plan and said it will now issue “substantially” fewer shares for long-term equity awards to the top 1% of senior management in favor of cash bonuses and it will also “significantly” reduce the amount of staff receiving stock options.

On Interest Rates And The Stock Market

Buffett says that when he sees a US 10-year Treasury Bond at 2.4%: “I’m not salivating.”

Buffett said of interest rates around the world: “I don’t really understand it … and I don’t really have to understand it.”

On the recent moves in the stock market, Buffett said: “Well yesterday, we bought a business. We would’ve bought it if the market was down 200 points or up 200 points.”

On the stock market broadly, he said “everything is a function of interest rates … interest rates are like gravity.”

“If interest rates were 10%, all of our stocks would be worth less.” Buffett said then that with interest rates near 0%, all assets were worth more. “Every asset, at present value, is worth the cash it will return before its termination date.”

On Alibaba: “I don’t think we’ve bought an IPO in over 50 years.”

Wealth without workers, workers without wealth The digital revolution is bringing sweeping change to labour markets in both rich and poor worlds

Wealth without workers, workers without wealth

The digital revolution is bringing sweeping change to labour markets in both rich and poor worlds

In the coming years the disruption will be felt by more people in more places, for three reasons. First, the rise of machine intelligence means more workers will see their jobs threatened. The effects will be felt further up the skill ladder, as auditors, radiologists and researchers of all sorts begin competing with machines. Technology will enable some doctors or professors to be much more productive, leaving others redundant.

Second, wealth creation in the digital era has so far generated little employment. Entrepreneurs can turn their ideas into firms with huge valuations and hardly any staff. Oculus VR, a maker of virtual-reality headsets with 75 employees, was bought by Facebook earlier this year for $2 billion. With fewer than 50,000 workers each, the giants of the modern tech economy such as Google and Facebook are a small fraction of the size of the 20th century’s industrial behemoths.

Third, these shifts are now evident in emerging economies. Foxconn, long the symbol of China’s manufacturing economy, at one point employed 1.5m workers to assemble electronics for Western markets. Now, as the costs of labour rise and those of automated manufacturing fall, Foxconn is swapping workers for robots. China’s future is more Alibaba than assembly line: the e-commerce company that recently made a spectacular debut on the New York Stock Exchange employs only 20,000 people.

The answer is not regulation or a larger state. High minimum wages will simply accelerate the replacement of workers by machines. Punitive tax rates will deter entrepreneurship and scare off the skilled on whom prosperity in the digital era depends. The best thing governments can do is to raise the productivity and employability of less-skilled workers. That means getting rid of daft rules that discourage hiring, like protections which make it difficult to sack poor performers. It means better housing policy and more investment in transport, to help people work in productive cities such as London and Mumbai.
