          IoT forecasts come into focus   
For years now there has been forecast after forecast predicting the size of the IoT market by the end of the decade or ten years hence. There is always a big number of connected things and impressive valuation for the sum of the whole market, and with the large mobile operators such as AT&T and Verizon now including connected things in their quarterly reports there is hard data to back up the rosy forecasts. At an editorial briefing in San Jose last month, Qualcomm executives said it is now shipping one million wireless connections per day - this certainly gives a perspective on how fast IoT can grow. The company has hundreds of OEM design wins for its MDM9206 LTE modem for IoT.

As of June 15th, the GSMA Intelligence services says there are 8,132,111,132 mobile connections, including M2M. The GSMA's online tracker further reports 5,016,263,289 unique mobile subscribers, which are assumed to mean people with at least one mobile phone and SIM card. By subtraction, this means 3.1 billion M2M connections tracked by the GSMA via their mobile operator members.

This piece collects newly published data from several sources. First, IDC recently reported that worldwide spending on the IoT will reach nearly $1.4 trillion in 2021. Second, the Cisco Visual Network Index (VNI) found that M2M connections globally will grow from 780 million in 2016 to 3.3 billion by 2021, a 34% CAGR or fourfold growth. Third, the newly published Ericsson Mobility Study finds that 70% of wide-areas IoT devices will use cellular technology in 2022. While studies from different authors will never precisely line up, this collection of data agrees that real and significant revenue from IoT for carriers has started to materialize and will grow quickly in the near term.

Highlights from IDC’s Worldwide Semi-annual IoT spending guide

The first big finding to notice in IDC's report is that worldwide spending on IoT will reach $800 billion this year, up 16.7% year over year, which means that the market this month must be worth tens of millions of dollars. These numbers are spread out amongst the hardware, software, services and connectivity that enable the IoT. This means splitting the pot between vendors such as Qualcomm, Sierra Wireless, Cisco Jasper, integration specialists, and of course carriers such as AT&T, Orange and Vodafone. There are many others that could be included on this list, especially when considering the global market.  In that sense, the $800 billion is just a starting point. IDC's forecast says that by 2021, global IoT spending will total nearly $1.4 trillion. In a press release announcing the study, IDC's Carrie MacGillivray, vice president, Internet of Things and Mobility, stated that the true value of IoT is realised when the software and services come together to enable the capture, interpretation, and action on data produced by IoT endpoints.

IDC breaks down 2017 investments in IoT as follows: manufacturing operations ($105 billion), freight monitoring ($50 billion), and production asset management ($45 billion), smart grid technologies for electricity, gas and water and smart building technologies ($56 billion and $40 billion, respectively). Looking to 2021, IDC expects these use cases will remain the largest areas of IoT spending. Smart home technologies are forecast to experience strong growth (19.8% CAGR) over the five-year forecast. The use cases that will see the fastest spending growth are airport facilities automation (33.4% CAGR), electric vehicle charging (21.1% CAGR), and in-store contextual marketing (20.2% CAGR).

IDC sees hardware as the largest IoT spending category to 2021, the last year of the forecast, when it is overtaken by the services category. This is to be expected as the various physical sensors and connectivity units must be deployed first before a service can be offered. IDC says hardware spending will be dominated by modules and sensors that connect end points to networks, while software spending will be similarly dominated by applications software. In addition, IDC says services spending will be about evenly split between ongoing and content services and IT and installation services. The fastest growing areas of technology spending are in the software category, where horizontal software and analytics software will have five-year CAGRs of 29.0% and 20.5%, respectively. Security hardware and software will also see increased investment, growing at 15.1% and 16.6% CAGRs, respectively.

Regional highlights:

•   Asia Pacific (excluding Japan, APeJ) will be the IoT investment leader throughout the forecast with spending expected to reach $455 billion in 2021.

•   The U.S. will be the second largest region with IoT spending reaching $421 billion in 2021.

•   Western Europe will reach $274 billion in 2021.

The IDC Worldwide Semiannual Internet of Things Spending Guide is quite comprehensive, covering IoT spending for 12 technologies and 54 use cases across 20 vertical industries in eight regions and 52 countries (for more details see here: http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS42799917).

Cisco looks wide with its VNI forecast

Generally speaking, Cisco's forecasts have tended to be the most optimistic. This year’s Cisco VNI indicates that its IoT coverage includes both M2M and emerging category of wearable IoT devices. M2M connections, which Cisco defines as home and office security and automation, smart metering and utilities, maintenance, building automation, automotive, healthcare and consumer electronics, are predicted to grow from 780 million in 2016 to 3.3 billion by 2021, a 34% CAGR or fourfold growth.

Wearable devices, which Cisco notes could connect and communicate to the network either directly through embedded cellular connectivity or through another device (primarily a smartphone) using WiFi, Bluetooth, or another technology, include such things as smart watches, smart glasses, heads-up displays (HUDs), health and fitness trackers, health monitors, wearable scanners and navigation devices and smart clothing. The Cisco VNI predicts that by 2021 there will be 929 million wearable devices globally, growing nearly threefold from 325 million in 2016 at a CAGR of 23%. By 2021, Cisco expects that 7% will have embedded cellular connectivity, up from 3% in 2016. As AR/VR headsets enter the market, they could start to have a tangible impact on mobile traffic.

Ericsson looks to short-range and wide-range IoT connectivity

The newly published Ericsson Mobility Report finds that at the end of 2016 there were around 0.4 billion IoT devices with cellular connections. Ericsson's study divides IoT into short-range and wide-area segments, and it provides some guidance as to how IoT is impacting the network. For instance, the report says use cases with VoLTE calls for IoT (Cat-M1) are starting to emerge. This could extend mobile voice service to IoT devices, an interesting possibility.

By 2021, Ericsson expects there will be 2.1 billion devices connected via LTE-M and NB-IoT networks, roughly a 30% CAGR from today. This trend has already started. This year, several prominent mobile operators have rolled out commercial LTE-M networks. For instance, in March, Verizon announced the commercial launch of its nationwide 4G LTE Category M1 (or Cat M1) network. The coverage spans 2.4 million square miles. Verizon will introduce low rate, multi-year plans to match the longer useful life of Cat M1 devices, including data plans that start at $2 per month per device, with customised options available for bulk activations and volume purchases. In May, AT&T followed suit by announcing the deployment of its nationwide LTE-M network ahead of schedule.


          ABI forecasts $1.7bn market over 5 yrs for unlicensed/shared spectrum   
According to ABI Research's latest Network Evolution in Unlicensed and Shared Spectrum report, which explores the use of unlicensed and shared spectrum, technologies enabling the utilisation of this spectrum type are not only attracting interest from established mobile network operators for low cost network densification, but also from new entrants to the market.

ABI finds that this interest is due to the opportunities that the network technologies offer for densification, neutral hosts, as well as enterprise and private network operators. The research firm predicts that new LTE unlicensed and shared spectrum technologies will create a $1.7 billion hardware market over the next 5 years encompassing LTE Unlicensed, CBRS (citizens broadband radio service) and MulteFire technology.

ABI notes that as a result of the power restrictions inherent with unlicensed and shared spectrum, the technologies are most suitable for small cell indoor or venue deployments. Based on low or no spectrum acquisition costs, plus deployment economics comparable to WiFi, ABI forecasts that demand for in-building wireless penetration in the mid-sized and enterprise verticals will increase dramatically and account for more than half of in-building small cell shipments in 2021.

The research firm reports that numerous companies are developing in technology in this area, ranging from the Spectrum Access System (SAS) providers and Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC) operators for CBRS, including Alphabet, CommScope, Federated Wireless, to small cell and infrastructure vendors such as BaiCells, Casa Systems, Ericsson, Huawei, ip.access, Nokia, Ruckus and SpiderCloud.

With regards to CBRS, which uses the 3.5 GHz band, ABI notes that an indication that the technology will transform the in-building wireless and mobile industries is that the CBRS Alliance, which advocates for CBRS technology, counts as members all four major U.S. mobile operators, namely AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint, as well as major MSOs, Comcast and Charter Communications, plus Google, Intel, Nokia and Qualcomm.

Commenting on the report, Nick Marshall, research director at ABI Research, said, "LTE-U/LAA appeals to MNOs planning to densify but with insufficient spectrum or the capex to acquire it… while MulteFire and CBRS promise low network build-out costs with economics that threaten to disrupt the DAS market... the technologies appeal to service providers as CBRS pioneers a significant change in spectrum management…. (and) traditional spectrum refarming cannot match the mobile broadband throughput demands with the migration to 5G".

          New Zealand vs. British & Irish Lions: Start Time, Live Stream for 2017 2nd Test   

New Zealand can end the British and Irish Lions' hopes of a series victory on Saturday with a win in the second Test at Wellington's Westpac Stadium.

The Lions made a bright start at Auckland's Eden Park last Saturday as they looked to surprise the All Blacks in Game 1 of this summer's series, but the visitors ultimately ran out of steam en route to a convincing 30-15 loss.

Preventing New Zealand from gaining their usual second wind in the last 30 minutes of Saturday's Test will be a chief priority for the travelling outfit this time around, although many have tried and failed in that regard.

Lions coach Warren Gatland has changed up the team ahead of Game 2, however, and his side need a win if they're to keep alive any hopes of stopping New Zealand from finishing the series in early fashion.

We take a look at some of the players likely to play key roles in Saturday's crunch encounter, complete with all the fixture details and live-stream information you'll need to tune into the action. 

       

Date: Saturday, July 1

Time: 8:35 a.m. BST/3:35 a.m. ET/7:35 p.m. local time

Venue: Westpac Stadium, Wellington

Sonny Bill Williams

One of the key areas of debate this week has oddly enough been the midfield, where England centre Ben Te'o has dropped to the bench, with compatriot Owen Farrell taking his place while Johnny Sexton slots in at fly-half.

It's a bold move for Gatland to make considering one of Te'o's primary roles last Saturday was caging New Zealand behemoth Sonny Bill Williams, and the Telegraph's Paul Hayward thought he did a fine job in that regard:

Indeed Farrell doesn't pose the same hulking figure as compatriot Te'o in the centre, and there is the added risk of Williams running riot should the sometimes No. 10 lose out by a wide margin in the physicality department.

But the prospect of seeing Farrell trampled into the Westpac Stadium soil hasn't crossed the mind of Gatland, who has insisted the Englishman and Ireland's Sexton can stop the Kiwi crusher, per Nick Purewal of the Evening Standard:

"Johnny and Owen haven't started but have had quite a bit of time together. It's just given us two ball players and two kicking options at first and second receiver, so we're happy with the mix.

"One concern we might have is that looking at the long-range weather forecast it doesn't look too great for Saturday night. So we may have to change how we play tactically."

"And of course defensively we'll have to do a job on Sonny Bill Williams, too. He came pretty direct at us and got away a couple of offloads, so it's going to be important we shut him down."

Gatland touched on the added dynamism his backs will likely have as a result of swapping Farrell in for Te'o, but ex-England centre and former Lion Mike Tindall has also warned of the imbalance that could follow:

It's not as though Farrell hasn't played and taken down big centres in the past, but Williams isn't only big and as athletic as they come, he also boasts some of the silkiest hands in the game.

Therefore, Gatland could either outwit New Zealand counterpart Steve Hansen as a result of his changes, or he could have just handed Williams the keys to the kingdom as he looks to run riot from the All Blacks' core.

       

Maro Itoje

Though some of Gatland's decisions during this summer's tour have been contentious, not many can argue the point that England star and first-time Lion Maro Itoje isn't deserving of his place in the XV.

He's only recently begun to make strides on the international stage, but he's already established himself as one of the northern hemisphere's greatest talents, one that should have started Game 1, according to ex-England lock Ben Kay:

Wales second-row Alun Wyn Jones will be an unfamiliar partner for the 22-year-old, but Itoje's maturity beyond his years was recently illustrated by Murray Kinsella of The42.ie:

The fact Itoje could have his chance to make an impact across 80 minutes this time around, as opposed to his 30-minute stint off the bench in Auckland, could make a difference to the Lions' hopes in itself.

That's the unique talent Gatland has opted to trust from the beginning this time around, although a big task awaits the Saracens star in ensuring the occasion doesn't become too overwhelming.

Commence Industrial CRM Profiled by leading Manufacturing Journalist

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/14/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "There is rarely one central database of customer information that can be accessed and shared among the people who need it to efficiently do their jobs. As a result, acting less like a team, these people act independently when conducting business and are far less effective.

Caretsky, noted in the feature article that "CEOs of these companies often share how their new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system provides them all the information they need, but fail to recognize that ERP systems provide information after the sale, not before or during the sales process. ERP systems provide no value for improving the efficiency of how to sell and service customers. This is one reason that forecast reports are always inaccurate."

According to Thomas R. Cutler, Manufacturing Journalist in a recent issue of Industrial Focus, "The foundation of any quality sales organization starts with the implementation and management of a sales process. These are the steps required by the sales representative to move the prospect from the initial introduction stage to the closing stage. Few industrial CRM systems provide manufacturers with a structured proven sales process or methodology for evaluating and managing each stage of the sales cycle. A pro-active approach to managing the sales process allows the sales manager to monitor and provide guidance during the cycle, as well as help sales representatives focus on the best opportunities."

Commence Industrial CRM Profiled by Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler in Manufacturing & Logistics IT

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/27/2006 -- According to Thomas R. Cutler, Manufacturing Journalist, in a recent issue of Manufacturing and Logistics IT, Industrial CRM is experiencing huge growth. The article may be read in its entirety at http://www.logisticsit.com/absolutenm/templates/article-manufacturing.aspx?articleid=2428&zoneid=2.

Commence offers industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors. The comprehensive CRM Industrial application suite is available for use on premise or on-demand as a hosted service. Industrial leaders often build departmental CRM solutions with the award winning Commence Industrial CRM Framework. These choices are why so many industrial companies choose Commence as the solution for managing customer relationships. All Commence Industrial solutions support mobile or wireless connectivity and integration to back-office accounting and ERP systems.

According to Larry Caretsky, CEO of Commence Corporation, "CRM for manufacturers must streamline sales processes by ensuring sales opportunities are tracked and closed consistently and efficiently with customizable workflow rules that automate stages in the selling process." As part of the lean manufacturing initiative, effective industrial CRM solutions will reduce errors by creating and modifying accurate quotes for prospects and existing clients using a full-featured product catalog that supports complex pricing levels, units of measure and discounts. The technology must allow quotes to be converted to orders, as well as modifying and saving orders until they are ready to be billed as invoices.

Caretsky suggested that another advantage of sector specific CRM is, "The ability improve demand management with sales pipeline visibility allows manufacturers to implement a sales forecasting process that delivers objective insights on sales activity, rather than subjective guessing."

Decreased client response times are also achieved when there is heightened visibility to manufacturing order status, inventory quantities, and current pricing; this empowers customer service staff with critical customer information.

Aftermarket sales are driving significant industrial CRM technology solutions because manufacturers recognize the value-added profit opportunities available with increased service and aftermarket sales. Only when the minutia of industrial customers' content is detailed in a CRM system can aftermarket sales opportunities be effectively exploited.
Understanding the idiosyncratic nature of manufacturing processes, industrial enterprises, and lean manufacturing principles mandates that CRM technology solutions recognize these unique sector traits to realize optimal benefits.

Lean Industrial CRM Data Integration Lean by Commence Corporation

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/23/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "Integration is a word many vendors are afraid of, and with good reason if their software can't support it. But industrial distributors and manufacturers need to carefully think about integration before they write it off as a "nice-to-have". Depending on your functional requirements, integration may be a necessity."

There are two main kinds of integration to consider: back-end and contact management. If manufacturers choose to integrate sales and marketing database with back-end accounting, ERP, or manufacturing software, then the ability to provide the sales team with a complete view of the customer, potentially including order history, pricing requests, and ship dates. Integration can also significantly help with quote entry, follow-up, and tracking. By increasing the availability of product and pricing information, important tools are given to an industrial sales force to serve customers while gaining efficiencies. Once a manufacturers has a significant volume of reliable data, it can start to feed the data entered in the sales system to the back-end system to facilitate improved purchasing and manufacturing forecasting.

Caretsky suggests that Lean CRM is has many important variables. "If you choose to integrate contact management, then all relevant contact-related data, including calendar, will be available in software such as Microsoft Outlook and able to synchronize to the sales team's PDAs or Pocket PCs. The main driver behind contact management integration is to make sure users don't have to type the same piece of data more than once, an obvious waste of time, and something that most sales people are unlikely to actually do. "

          Storm Chasers Show   
Reed Timmer + Aurora, Nebraska Tornado

Here is a preview:




Here's a fact you probably didn't know about Reed: He paid for his new vehicle out of his own pocket!

Brandon Ivey and Matt Hughes will be on the show this year too, who are a couple of chaser friends near the Wichita, Kansas area. Brandon is a stand-up, laid-back guy who I always give hell to about how close he seems to get to tornadoes after dark (via radar). Matt is also a great guy and together, make solid forecasts on tricky days and seem to always bag the good stuff.

Despite the crappy year for most(not for us!), there will be some unbelievable footage on the show. Reed and crew nailed every single major day this year (April 26, April 29, May 13th, June 5, June 15th, June 17th) and took direct hits from tornadoes on 3 of those days...2 of those...they were the first ever to scan the vertical wind shear inside of a tornado. Data collected from all of these intercepts, including the radar data, will eventually help save lives in the future from tornadoes.

In other news, I have just found out via printing at whcc.com that my monitor is way off on calibration. So if your monitor is calibrated correctly, my images probably seem very dark. To fix this problem, I'm calibrating it today with a ridiculously expensive program, so that I can print some photos in the future.

          Steam heat cranks up a notch for the 4th of July weekend   
Less rain, more heat in the forecast for the weekend
          What I've been up to....   

So basically over the summer I was doing an internship with a freelance fashion stylist called Kylie Griffiths.  For one of my units at university I had to carry out an internship, the work experience had to be within the field of work we wish to pursue when we finish uni. It was a great experience and I learnt a lot about the styling process during my time there, some days were good and some were bad. I worked closely with PR companies when dealing with returns and pick ups and it really widened my knowledge on how PR companies work, - although having taken a PR unit at university you really don’t learn the works until you do it first hand! Some of the highlights of my internship was styling Lucy from Towie for a shoot with FHM, the location house which was used was absolutely amazing! I have never been in such a beautiful house, - to be honest both houses on both shoots were amazing, it really gave me something to work towards.Overall I had a great time and it really helped me decide what I want to do as a career when I’ve finished uni, I definitely still want to pursue my dreams of being a stylist, but I have also decided I want to venture down the route of buying and I am steering towards this area and will be demonstrated within my final major project. I’m now on the hunt for internships/work experience related to this area, looking at trend forecasting and buying 
opportunities.

The increase in the energy demand has resulted in the rise in oil & gas production from the regions such as North America and the Middle East. Due to the maturing onshore oil & gas fields there has been a shift of exploration & production activities towards offshore reserves. The global mooring systems market is expected to grow from USD 1.58 Billion in 2015 to USD 1.89 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 3.7%. Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

          Show off your API with a little Swagger...   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/ballhaus/archive/2017/06/14/swaggerapi.aspx


So you've built yourself a ground-breaking RESTful .NET Web Api that's effectively going to change the world... awesome!

You've even sold and marketed the idea to maybe your boss or potential client... fantastic!

And then they ask you for documentation... oops!

You're not alone, developers are notorious for "saving the world" with their code and yet always seem to overlook the obvious. But fear not!

There are a few easy solutions that you can implement that will actually do all the documentation work for you. Microsoft has their own built-in version of this, however I'm going to focus today on a specification called "Swagger."  More specifically, the implementation technology we'll be using to generate the Swagger documentation with the Web Api framework is called "Swashbuckle."

Why Swashbuckle?

Well not only does Swashbuckle allow you to have very nicely formatted documentation, it will also handle auto-generating interactive test cases for you so your consumers can easily play around with your Api while they're familiarizing themselves with it's overall usage.

Here's a couple screenshots of our Demo API found here: http://www.holisticstg.com




Here is an example of one of those interactive test cases I mentioned earlier...





"Ok, I'm sold. How do I set this up for my Web Api?"

There is actually just a few simple steps to get this up and running...

  • Open NuGet package manager within Visual Studio and install "Swashbuckle.Net45"


  • After the NuGet package is installed, you'll notice a new file has been added to your "App_Start" folder called "SwaggerConfig.cs" This file allows you to customize various aspects of your generated Swagger documentation, we'll dive more into that in a just a bit.
  • For now, you can simply use your browser and point to the root url of your api and append it with "/swagger"

So here is my controller code for our Demo API:

/// <summary>
/// Holistics Technology Group Demo API
/// </summary>
public class DemoApiController : ApiController
{
    /// <summary>
    /// Simple string example
    /// </summary>
    /// <returns>string</returns>
    [HttpGet]
    [Route("api/demoapi/helloworld")]
    public async Task<string> StringExample()
    {
        return await Task.Factory.StartNew(() => "Hello from Holistics Technology Group!");
    }

    /// <summary>
    /// Get weather summary
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="zipCode">zip code</param>
    /// <returns>string</returns>
    [HttpPost]
    [Route("api/demoapi/todaysweather")]
    public async Task<string> Summary(string zipCode)
    {
        return await Task.Factory.StartNew(() => zipCode.LookupWeather().TodaySummary);
    }

    /// <summary>
    /// Get weather forecast object
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="zipCode">zip code</param>
    /// <returns>WeatherData</returns>
    [HttpPost]
    [Route("api/demoapi/threedayforecast")]
    [ResponseType(typeof(WeatherData))]
    public async Task<WeatherData> Forecast(string zipCode)
    {
        return await Task.Factory.StartNew(() => zipCode.LookupWeather());
    }
}

Now that we have Swashbuckle wired up properly, we'll want to configure it to read in our XML code comments. This is where the SwaggerConfig.cs file comes into play. But first we'll need to tell Visual Studio to actually save our XML comments into our bin directory.


Then open up SwaggerConfig.cs and un-comment the line that contains "c.IncludeXmlComments" and supply the path your actual XML file name you set just above.


Swashbuckle is very configurable and we have only scratched the surface of what it can do, but this should be enough to get you up and running.

Here are a few of the more notable updates:

  • Mobile live streaming. Broadcasters can now stream to their channel from Twitch’s mobile app. This could attract more streamers to Twitch, as the feature provides flexibility, and a more convenient way to create content. This could draw in more viewers if broadcasters begin streaming non-game content with greater frequency. However, broadcasters can’t yet live stream gameplay, which may be discouraging to those interested in the medium.
  • Dark mode. This is a user interface theme that converts the normally white elements of Twitch’s interface to a darker shade. The mode could present a more pleasant viewing experience for users watching in low-light environments, helping to further entice people to binge watch on the platform. In turn, this could boost user engagement and retention. The feature helps differentiate Twitch from YouTube, which doesn’t currently offer a dark mode on its mobile app.
  • Twitch Pulse. Twitch Pulse is a social feed where broadcasters can post content — including text, links, videos, and images — for viewers to engage with. The feed is similar to Twitter, and could help with user retention as it provides content for users to interact with when streams aren’t occurring. Building out Twitch’s mobile app will be crucial for it to stay competitive against other popular social apps, such as Facebook and Snapchat, which have a strong mobile presence with multiple use cases and functionalities, as well as other streaming platforms like YouTube Live.

As Twitch and other streaming platforms grow, one must ask what the future of eSports will look like. How high can it climb? Could it reach the mainstream popularity of baseball or football? How will advertisers be able to reach an audience that does its best to shield itself from advertising?

Robert Elder, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled an unparalleled report on the eSports ecosystem that illuminates the business of eSports from four angles:

  • The gaming nucleus of eSports, including an overview of popular eSport genres and games; the influence of game publishers, and the spectrum of strategies they adopt toward their respective eSport scenes; the role of eSports event producers and the tournaments they operate.
  • The eSports audience profile, its size, global reach, and demographic, psychographic, and behavioral attributes; the underlying factors driving its growth; why they are an attractive target for brands and broadcasters; and the significant audience and commercial crossover with traditional sports.
  • eSports media broadcasters, including digital avant-garde like Twitch and YouTube, newer digital entrants like Facebook and traditional media outlets like Turner’s TBS Network, ESPN, and Canal Plus; their strategies and successes in this space; and the virtual reality opportunity.
  • eSports market economics, with a market sizing, growth forecasts, and regional analyses; an evaluation of the eSports spectacle and its revenue generators, some of which are idiosyncratic to this industry; strategic planning for brand marketers, with case studies; and an exploration of the infinite dynamism and immense potential of the eSports economy.

          UK consumers suffer longest decline in spending power since 1970s   

LONDON (Reuters) - British consumers have suffered the longest decline in their spending power since the 1970s, official data showed on Friday, although there was a sign that the economy may have recently gathered a bit of momentum.

The figures from the Office for National Statistics painted a bleak picture for consumers who are facing the double hit of rising inflation - caused in large part by the fall in the pound since the Brexit vote - and slowing wage growth.

Household disposable income, adjusted for inflation, fell for the third quarter in a row, the ONS said, putting some of the blame on the timing of tax payments.

That was the worst run since the 1970s and took the household savings ratio down to an all-time low of 1.7 percent.

The Bank of England is watching for signs of a pickup in the economy after the weak start to the year as it plans when to raise interest rates for the first time in a decade.

The ONS confirmed that the economy grew by just 0.2 percent in the January-March period compared with the previous three months, slowing sharply from the fourth quarter of 2016 when it grew by a quarterly 0.7 percent.

The sudden slowdown meant Britain went from being one of the fastest-growing economies among the Group of Seven rich nations to its weakest performer in the first quarter.

The BoE expects growth to increase speed to 0.4 percent in the second quarter - despite the inconclusive outcome of this month's national election - and has said it might start to raise interest rates if it sees stronger exports and investment in the coming months.

The ONS said Britain's giant services sector grew by a monthly 0.2 percent in April, slightly slower than in March. But growth was up 0.2 percent in the three months to April, faster than 0.1 percent in the first three months of the year.

Alan Clarke, an economist with Scotiabank, said earlier on Friday that monthly growth of 0.2 percent for the services industry in April would be consistent with the BoE's forecast for overall economic growth to pick up in the second quarter to 0.4 percent.

ONS said business investment grew by a quarterly 0.6 percent in the first three months of 2017, unchanged from its previous estimate and only partially offsetting a fall in the fourth quarter.

It also said Britain's current account deficit widened to 16.9 billion pounds in the January-March period, equivalent to 3.4 percent of gross domestic product, up from 2.4 percent in the fourth quarter.

The increase in the shortfall was driven mostly by a weak performance in Britain's trade balance in early 2017 although it was slightly smaller than a median forecast of 17.3 billion pounds in a Reuters poll of economists.

BoE Governor Mark Carney has said the current account deficit represents one of the vulnerabilities of Britain's economy, leaving it dependent "on the kindness of strangers" to keep funding its shortfall.

Breaking down the overall growth of the economy in early 2017, the ONS said household spending grew more slowly than in late 2016, up 0.4 percent compared with 0.7 percent in the fourth quarter.

Real household disposable income fell by 1.4 percent in quarterly terms, the third fall in a row and the biggest drop since the first quarter of 2013.

          Oil up for seventh day but first-half drop biggest since 1998   

By Julia Simon

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil climbed on Friday for a seventh straight session as a decrease in the U.S. rig count and stronger demand data from China lifted depressed prices that still finished the first half with the biggest decline for that period since 1998.

U.S. drillers decreased their number of rigs for the first time since January, according to energy services company Baker Hughes. [RIG/U] The rig count had risen for the previous 23 weeks.

Earlier, Chinese data showed factories grew at the quickest pace in three months. Rob Haworth, senior investment strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management, said the Chinese data "certainly gives you hope that demand is growing globally."

U.S. crude futures settled up $1.11, or around 2.5 percent, to $46.04 a barrel. Benchmark Brent crude futures settled up 50 cents at $47.92 a barrel.

Both benchmarks ended the first half of 2017 with drops of more than 14 percent since Dec. 30, 2016, the largest drop since Brent and U.S. crude fell about 19 percent in the first half of 1998.

Oil prices have generally increased in first half of most years.

Trading volume was low ahead of the U.S. Independence Day holiday weekend. Last week, crude hit a 10-month low as rises in output revived concerns about global oversupply.

The U.S. dollar <.DXY> fell, making dollar-denominated crude oil less expensive for investors using other currencies.

The global crude glut has knocked 16 percent off Brent crude so far this year, even though the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major producers have agreed to cut production about 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd).

"There’s a longer term question of where are prices going to be when the market rebalances," said Haworth.

Money managers cut their net long U.S. crude futures and options positions in the week to June 27 to the lowest since late September, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said on Friday.

The market has also seen traders building short positions to the highest levels since mid-August.

Reuters' monthly oil price poll showed analysts have reduced their price forecasts again, with 2017 average Brent and WTI prices lowered by more than $2 since last month. [OILPOLL]

Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts cut their forecast for average 2017 Brent crude prices to $50 a barrel from $54 and WTI to $47 from $52. They cited rising output from Libya, Nigeria and U.S. shale fields, coupled with weaker demand growth.

While U.S. drillers cut two oil rigs in the week to June 30, the total rig count of 756 is still more than double the count the same week a year ago, Baker Hughes said on Friday.

          Hundred Islands   

Some of the Islands see at Quezon Island

_________________________________________


We've been to Pangasinan a few times exploring hidden beaches but we never did go to the famous landmark "The Hundred Islands" in Alaminos. Since it is a popular tourist destination, we expect it to be crowded and we all hate that. We go off almost every weekend to relax after a long week of work. A really quiet and peaceful place does the work. We so miss the sea that Elmer plan to go and check out the Hundred Islands in Alaminos, Pangasinan. Actually, we were running out of places to spend our weekend that is close to Manila. 

Eventhough it's already rainy season, we still push through this event. After all the weather forecast in Pangasinan is partly cloudy and occasional rains only. No heavy downpour. Eman, Elli and Elmer left ahead of me since I'll be working till 6am (eeerrr.. night shift). So while I was on my way, they will buy supplies for our overnight stay. After 5-hour bus ride, I made it to Alaminos at 1:30pm and meet-up with them.


_________________________________________

Expenses for 2-day trip:

Php      15.00  MRT Magallanes to Cubao
Php    394.00  a/c bus Cubao to Alaminos (Victory Liner)
Php      30.00  Tricycle to Lucap Port
Php    550.00  Overnight boat rental (incl. tour of the islands)
Php      80.00  Entrance fee includes all the islands (overnight)
Php    100.00  Tent pitching (Quezon Island)
Php      40.00  Trike to Victory Liner terminal (Alaminos)
Php    350.00  Contribution for food and supplies
Php    393.00  a/c bus Alaminos to Cubao (Victory Liner)
Php      65.00  Cubao to San Pedro
PHP 2017.00 TOTAL EXPENSES

_________________________________________

After we have a short tour on some of the islands, we then head to the coral garden where we could go snorkeling (much awaited part of the trip). I must say, there are a lot of fishes and corals. We saw clown fishes, batfish, damsel fish, trigger fish, parrot fish, butterfly fish and angel fishes. We spent our night at Quezon Island. Pitching tents starts at 5:00pm.


The island offers cottages and tents for rent. Toilets are also available but the water they use is still seawater. That means no shower before going to bed (wet wipes will do). They sell both mineral and Nawasa water for Php 150.00 per 5 gallons (blue container).


The image above are the boats for rent. The right one is ours. The original plan is to rent a smaller boat that can accommodate 5-10 persons only for Php 2200. But the boatman suggests to use bigger boat since the waves are pretty strong. Bigger boats can fit 10-15 persons and costs Php 2800. On our part, we haggle down the price since it was our first deal anyway.


Image above was taken at the view deck. From there, you can see all the surrounding islands and it's beaches. Sorry for this bad image. There are a few groups at the Governor's Island view deck that's why we have to take turns and hurry up in taking photos.

Table Cottages and the camping grounds
Kayaks for rent

Floating Cottage. Be sure to swim with lifevest on.

The next day we head to the spot were the giant clams are. You can swim from the back of the island (careful! there are deep parts) if in case the tour guide hadn't brought you there yet. (It should be part of the  tour). It was our first time to see giant clams and it was really amazing. I think, there are hundreds of them.

To sum it all up, our experience in Hundred Islands is not so bad at all. The people started coming in on Sunday morning just in time for us to go back to Manila. Just some few things to remember:

  • If you are camping at Quezon Island, bring wet wipes. There are comfort rooms but you will still use seawater.
  • Bring mosquito repellants. I tell you, they are everywhere!
  • Don't leave your things unattended. We lost 1 of 3 6 liters bottled water we didn't even notice.
  • They sell both mineral and NAWASA water. But much advisable to bring your own drinking water.
  • There are other islands you can set camp. The Governor's Island and the Childrens Island.
  • There are also rooms available if you want.
  • You can rinse off at Lucap for Php 30.00/head (Negotiate with your boatman to where you can take a bath before going back to Manila).

          Firstborn's Graduation Party: Rain, Rain Go Away   
I planned a graduation party date weeks ahead. It was basically the ONLY free time we could host a party for Firstborn, as she leaves on a senior trip this week. And it really doesn't rain much here. So, my plan was to have an outdoor, picnic-themed, graduation party in our little front yard. Everyone chipped in with various ways to help. Sweet Cheek tied little cookies to make them look like diplomas. 


I even assigned Firstborn a job. We stopped to get a pallet (which didn't fit in the van, so we drove with the door open!) and she nailed into it, tied it with string, and displayed pictures from her various activities, her senior pictures, and ones from when she was little. 

I printed some simple tags that read 2017. Sweet Cheeks, the green thumb in the family, gathered and arranged wild flowers. I didn't pay a dime to a florist. 


Firstborn and I checked the weather once we hit the 10 day mark. Scattered thundershowers? What? Here? We felt confident that forecast would change. Yet it didn't. I then determined that perhaps we'd get a brief sprinkle, but the party would go on.

I woke at 5:30AM (after the annual banquet the night before! yawn!) and began setting it up. I had gone on Pinterest for some ideas, but decided to spend about 30 minutes on Pinterest, mark a couple cute things to do, then just move on! The main thing is people, not decorations. I also bought a JENGA set and asked friends to sign a block for her. So, this was her little display. Set up by  7AM. 

Rather than getting big tables, I brought out all the small end tables and coffee tables we had. I set up little groups around the yard. CC had trimmed and cut the yard up to look nice the day before. 



Everything looked great. Two big tables for food, lots of little tables for people, signs, displays. We were all set. The weather had been saying the scattered thundershowers could be expected at 1, right as the party got started.

But they didn't come at 1. They came right then. It was an absolute downpour. I was exhausted. I'd been up late for the staff event the night before, then up early the next morn to set up the party. And it's just everything. My daughter is graduating and leaving home! So, along with the rain came a downpour from my eyes. CC and kids had left for church. I frantically grabbed the picture display first, then began dragging everything inside, wondering how we could possibly host an indoor event inside, wishing I had rented some sort of tent.

          The first Cassini to explore Saturn was a person    

Space probe preparing to crash into ringed planet was named for an astronomical pioneer

Context
Saturn

TWO CASSINIS  The Cassini spacecraft has become famous for its stunning views of Saturn, including this image of the unlit side of the rings taken in 2012. But what do we know about the man Cassini was named for?

As the Cassini spacecraft plunges toward its death on Saturn, the world’s knowledge of the famous ringed planet continues to accumulate. Thanks to years of observations by the versatile probe, astronomers now know Saturn as intimately as macaroni knows cheese. But still hardly anyone outside the world of astronomy knows anything about Cassini — and I don’t mean the spacecraft, but the guy it was named for.

Gian Domenico Cassini was an Italian astronomer, born in Perinaldo in 1625, around the time that Galileo was battling the church over Copernicus’ revelation that the Earth orbits the sun. Cassini was attracted to poetry but was also good at math. He got his start in science via astrology, which back then was not considered quite as completely idiotic as it is today. In fact, astronomy itself was often supported by wealthy people in order to get better astrological forecasts. One such wealthy Italian, an amateur astronomer, was impressed with a pamphlet on astrology that Cassini had written; it earned him an invitation to work at the amateur’s observatory, near Bologna.

From the leading scientists at Bologna, Cassini learned the importance of using high-quality instruments to make the most precise measurements possible. His talents were soon recognized; by 1650 Cassini’s accomplishments and reputation earned him the chair in astronomy at the university in Bologna. He continued his research during the 1650s, taking a particular interest in comets.

Cassini was an old-school conservative kind of scientist, not even inclined to take Galileo’s side on the Earth-orbiting-the-sun issue. Cassini preferred Tycho Brahe’s position that the other planets orbited the sun, but the sun then orbited the Earth. (Later Cassini accepted the Copernican sun-centered solar system, but only half-heartedly.) Cassini also was no fan of Newton’s law of gravity.

Cassini’s work as an eminent Italian scientist was not limited to astronomy. Called on to referee a political dispute over the course of a river, he mastered hydraulics. Later he spent some time studying insects and experimenting on blood transfusions. None of that was as fun as astronomy, though, so he returned to the stars often. In addition to comets, he specialized in the sun and especially solar eclipses. Some of his best work resulted from the use of a meridian — a large sundial-like device for recording solar movements — that he designed and had installed on the top of a church steeple.

Cassini was also clever enough to know the value of cultivating useful friendships. In particular, he was on good terms with some skillful Roman lens makers who provided him with especially powerful telescopes. With such instruments Cassini was able to calculate the rotation rates of Jupiter and Mars accurately. (He gave Venus a shot, but it was harder.)

Even more impressively, Cassini accomplished a goal that had eluded Galileo by accurately describing the motions of the moons of Jupiter. It was Cassini’s work on Jupiter’s moons that allowed the Danish astronomer Olaus Rømer to measure the speed of light, establishing that light did not transit space instantaneously, as many (including Cassini) had believed.

Even before Rømer’s results, Cassini’s accomplishments made him famous enough to get offered a job in Paris. That job was actually a prime position with the new French Academy of Sciences, whose founders recruited savants from all over Europe to enhance the new academy’s prestige. So in 1669 Cassini moved to Paris. He didn’t fit in all that well; his French was sketchy and his authoritarian approach to things in general ticked some people off. But he eventually managed to develop a world-class astronomical observation program. He became a French citizen in 1673 and married the daughter of a French official wealthy enough to offer as part of the dowry a nice castle for a summer home. Cassini then forgot about his original plan to return to Italy and spent the rest of his life in France.

Story continues after image

Had his astronomical achievements ended with his departure from Italy, Cassini would have been an odd choice for the name of a spacecraft sent to study Saturn. But besides his administrative role at the French academy’s observatory, Cassini continued his own studies. And, having mastered Jupiter, he naturally moved on to Saturn. In 1671 he discovered Saturn’s moon Iapetus and found another, Rhea, the next year. Much later he detected the moons Tethys and Dione. He also thoroughly examined the disk around Saturn and discerned that it was not just one ring. He identified two prominent rings separated by a small gap — the thin black band between the two is now known as Cassini’s division. Cassini even guessed, more or less correctly, that the rings are made of small particles all orbiting Saturn in concert.

And so Cassini knew Saturn as intimately as anyone from his era, establishing sufficient Saturnian credentials to earn the honor of having a space probe named for him. Cassini the probe has now seen Saturn much more clearly than Cassini the man. But soon Cassini the probe will die and go blind; Cassini the man first went blind, two years before he died, in 1712.

          Weekend Reading: Want Some Volatility With That?   

Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com,

Over the last couple of week’s, volatility has certainly picked up. As shown in the chart below, stocks have vacillated in a 1.5% trading range ever since the beginning of June. (Chart through Thursday)

Despite the pickup in volatility, support for the market has remained firm. Importantly, this confirms the conversation I had with Kevin Massengill of Meraglim just recently discussing the impact of Algorithmic Trading and how they are simultaneously currently all “buying the dip.” As he notes, this is all “fine and dandy” until the robots all decide to start “selling rallies” instead. (Start at 00:02:40 through 00:04:00)

But even with the recent pickup in volatility, volatility by its own measure remains extremely compressed and near its historical lows. While extremely low volatility is not itself an immediate issue, like margin debt, it is the “fuel” that when ignited “burns hot” during the reversion process.

Currently, as we head into the extended July 4th weekend, the bull market trend remains clearly intact. With the “accelerated advance” line holding firm on Thursday’s sell-off, but contained below the recent highs, there is little to suggest the advance that began in early 2016 has come to its final conclusion.

However, such a statement should NOT be construed as meaning it WON’T end as it more assuredly will. The only questions are simply when and how deep the subsequent reversion will be?

Volatility is creeping back. The trick will be keeping it contained.

In the meantime, this is what I am reading over the long holiday weekend.

Happy Independence Day.

O, O, O, It's Magic

by: Brad Thomas
 

- All triple-net REITs grow earnings by utilizing spread investing.

- The higher the multiple, the lower the costs of capital, and that translates into BIGGER MARGINS.

- The low cost of capital (high equity multiple) is the most important competitive advantage in the net lease industry.

 
This article is one in a sequence of articles that I refer to as “If I Had To Own Just One REIT” series. As you may recall, I recently wrote on the Healthcare REIT sector and I selected Ventas, Inc. (VTR) as my top pick. I summed up my BUY recommendation as follows:
VTR is my favorite Healthcare REIT and one of the best managed REITs overall. While I don't consider the shares anywhere near bargain-pricing levels, I consider the stock soundly valued and worthy of an entry position. For a deep value investor, I would wait on a pullback, but I have no problem recommending shares at the current price point.
I also wrote on the Shopping Center REIT sector and I explained that “after surveying the list of vetted retail REITs and considering which of the companies are worthy of ownership, I find Retail Opportunity Investments Corp. (ROIC) one of the best REITs to own.”
 
Given the more recent news and powerfully disruptive force in the retail sector – Amazon (AMZN), it’s critical that investors focus on QUALITY. As I explained in a recent Forbes article,
The best quality real estate with the highest sales productivity should thrive as successful retailers want to drive sales and inventory turnover..., Amazon is recognizing that to build a successful mousetrap, the blueprint must include REAL ESTATE.
In other words, it’s now more critical than ever to own Retail REITs that have the highest quality assets. There is no reason to be cute, hoping to capture outsized returns by investing a REIT like Spirit Realty (SRC) that leases to Shopko and formerly invested in a struggling grocer, Hagen. I summarized my thoughts in a recent article,
The cream always rises to the top, and today REIT investors have an opportunity to pick up shares in a stalwart REIT that has a superior low cost of capital advantage. It’s critical to always examine the underlying revenue generators of a REIT and remember that “quality is not free.
Now it’s time to continue the “If I Had To Own Just One REIT” series and today I’m writing on the Net Lease REIT sector. I’m sure you already know the company but in case you don’t here’s a clue…. O, O, O, It’s Magic.
 
 
The Basic Net Lease REIT Overview
 
Before I start on the discussion of Realty Income (O), let’s begin with a general overview of the Net Lease REIT sector. Net Lease REITs are different from Shopping Center REITs because their lease structure and growth drivers support a predictable revenue stream relative to other forms of retail real estate. This snapshot below compares Realty Income (and Net Lease REITs) with Shopping Center/Mall REITs:
 
 
 
 
One of the most important differentiators for Net Lease REITs is that they drive growth through acquisitions. When is the last time you saw a Mall REIT acquire a Mall? Net Lease REITs like Realty Income have a large pool to fish in – the sector is highly fragmented and there are opportunities to invest in practically every state in the U.S. (Realty Income owns properties in 49 states).
 
 
 
Here is a snapshot comparing Realty Income’s market capitalization with the Net Lease REIT peers:
 
 
 
Over the years, Realty Income has evolved into a massive Net Lease REIT with 4,980 properties located in 49 states and Puerto Rico. As you can see below, the company has a highly diversified portfolio spanning 49 states (not in HI):
 
 
 
 
It’s hard to fathom how much Realty Income has grown over the years, from one Taco Bell site to over 4,900 properties. The company now has incredible scale, well diversified by tenant, industry, geography, and to a certain extent, property type.
 
No tenant represents more than 6.8% of revenue as Realty Income has 250 commercial tenants, 45% are investment-grade rated (including 9 of the top 20 tenants):
 
 
 
As you can see, Whole Foods is not on the list of Top 20 tenants. During the first quarter, Realty Income added Kroger (NYSE:KR) to its top 20 tenants, representing 1.2% of annualized rental revenue. But more importantly, the top 15 tenants represent higher quality credit, less cyclical industries and greater diversification vs. 2009:
 
 
 
No industry represents more than 11.1% of rent and the company has considerable exposure to defensive industries: Top 10 industries represent strong diversification, significant exposure to non-discretionary, low price point, service-oriented industries:
 
 
Realty Income’s roots are in retail with growing exposure to mission-critical industrial properties:
 
 
 
Realty Income’s management team is highly experienced at sourcing deals and when the company invests in retail it seeks strong unit-level cash flow coverage (specific to each industry). The company seeks tenants with service, non-discretionary and/or low price point components to their business with favorable sales and demographic trends.
 
Keep in mind, there have been 13 retail bankruptcies in 2017 and 12 of them were related to apparel, electronics, and general merchandise. Realty Income has little exposure to these categories: 5 apparel BKs and O has 1.8% of ABR in apparel, 3 sporting goods BKs and O has 1.3% of ABR in sporting goods, and O has .30% exposure in electronics, 1.7% in general merchandise, and just .65% exposure in shoes (i.e. Payless BK).
 
Also, Realty Income has 3.67% exposure (based on ABR) to the grocery sector. The company has Wal-Mart and Kroger as Top 10 tenants. As I said earlier, it’s critical to invest in quality retail and that means avoid REITs that have exposure to weaker chains like Shopko (i.e. SRC) and Bi-Lo (i.e. WHLR).

What about Rite Aid (RAD)?
 
Of all of Realty Income’s tenants, Rite Aid is, in my opinion, the biggest watch list candidate. There is doubt regarding the Walgreen merger and RAD is highly leveraged (rated B by S&P). Realty Income has 69 RAD stores but I don’t consider this dire news given the fact that Realty Income has cherry-picked the real estate and the pharmacy sector is growing.
 
Who knows, maybe the RAD leases become Amazon leases… I’ll save that article for another day…
Realty Income remains comfortable with the momentum in the drugstore industry and continues to view the exposure favorably given the industry’s attractive demographic tailwinds, non-discretionary nature and continued growth from in-store pharmacy pickup.
 
Additionally, Walgreens and CVS (the top two drugstore tenants) have generated 15 consecutive quarters of positive same-store pharmacy sales growth.
 
Most importantly, over 90% of Realty Income’s retail portfolio has service, non-discretionary and/or low price point components. The Non-Retail-focused investments are Fortune 1000, primarily investment-grade rated companies.
 
 
 
The Magic Starts Right Here
 
All triple-net REITs grow earnings by utilizing spread investing; this simple formula is described as follows:
 
Cap Rate - Cost of Capital = Spread
 
By using this example, assume a triple-net REIT acquires standalone buildings at a 7% cap rate, and then, after subtracting the cost of capital (~5%), arrives at a spread (that's the profit margin) of ~2% (or 200 bps).
 
Over the years, I have been reading many articles on Seeking Alpha and other investing websites, and I'm amazed that most analysts miss the "most important thing" when it comes to net lease investing:
 
The Low Cost of Capital Advantage.
Let's consider the equity details related to spread investing.
 
To arrive at the earnings yield, one must divide the P/FFO ratio into 100. For example, a P/FFO of 21x divided by 100 is a 4.7% earnings yield. Since assuming Wall Street charges around 6.5% for equity, the earnings yield after issuance costs is .935 (100% - 6.5% = 93.5%).
 
So, the Nominal Cost of Equity is arrived at by dividing the 4.7% earnings yield by .935, or 5%.
 
With a 7% cap rate (on a purchase), the 5% NCE is equal to 2.0%. Thus, on a $100 million investment, there is $2 million in new profits for all shareholders. The same thing at 25x P/FFO equals a 4.27% NCE that translates into around $2.73 million (in profits) on a $100 million acquisition.
 
So, very simply, the higher the multiple, the lower the costs of capital, and that translates into BIGGER MARGINS.
 
AFFO yield = Annualized 2017 estimated AFFO ($3.06) divided by $56.67 stock price = 5.39%
 
Estimated cost of 10-year debt = 3.60%
 
Nominal Cost of Free Cash Flow = 0%
 
66% equity = 5.39% * (0.66) = 3.56%
 
34% debt = 3.60% * (.33) = 1.22%
 
WACC = 3.56% +1.22% = 4.78%
 
(In reality, it's actually lower than that, because O uses free cash flow instead of equity. Cash has a 0% nominal cost.)
 
Realty Income’s investment spreads relative to its weighted average cost of capital remained healthy in the first quarter, averaging 170 bps, which were well above the historical averages. Realty Income defined investment spreads as initial cash yield less the nominal first year weighted average cost of capital.
 
As illustrated below, the low cost of capital (high equity multiple) is the most important competitive advantage in the net lease industry:
 
 
Low cost of capital allows Realty Income to acquire the highest quality assets and leases in the net lease industry:
 
Realty Income avoids lease structures with above-market rents, which can often inflate initial cap rates:
 
 
Assuming identical real estate portfolio, consider two different lease structure scenarios...
 
 
Realty Income’s cost of capital advantage drives ability to source, fund, close on accretive M&A deals, like the ARCT transaction that closed in 2013:
 
 
Large, diversified portfolio offers capacity to absorb co-mingled portfolio opportunities, like the Inland portfolio that closed in 2014:
 
 
 
Realty Income’s property diversification, cost of capital, and willingness to acquire $250mm+ transactions with diverse property types provides unique growth opportunities in addition to traditional single-asset or retail sale-leaseback pipeline.
 
The Fortress Balance Sheet
 
In the first quarter, Realty Income issued approximately $800 million in common equity at an average price to investors of approximately $62 per share (trading at $53.76 now).
 
Realty Income has the highest credit rating in the net lease sector, the company issued $700 million in fixed rate unsecured debt with a weighted average term of 18.3 years and a yield of 4.1%.
 
The company’s credit spreads remain among the lowest in the REIT industry and leverage continues to decline with net debt to total market cap of approximately 26% and debt to EBITDA of approximately 5.5x. Realty Income currently has approximately $1.5 billion available on its $2 billion line of credit. This provides ample liquidity and flexibility as the company continues to grow.
 
 
 
The company is rated BBB+ by all three major rating agencies (Moody's, S&P, and Fitch), and is likely to become an A- rated REIT soon. Key metrics include: 93% fixed-rate debt, weighted average rate of 4.15% on debt, staggered maturities (8.1 year on average), and ample liquidity ($1.68 available on revolver (L+90bps) with $120 million (annually) of free cash flow.
 
 
O, O, O, It’s Magic
 
What company would copyright the name, “the monthly dividend company” if they did not intend to generate reliable monthly dividends?
 
 
As you can see, Realty Income has had Zero dividend cuts in 22 years as a public company:
 
 
 
The “Magic” of Rising Dividends: Yield on Cost, Dividend Payback long term, yield-oriented investors have been rewarded with consistent income. There are potential benefits to investing long term in a company that regularly increases its dividend. The longer you hold your shares, the higher the yield you will receive on your original investment, assuming dividends increase over time. Additionally, the compounding of reinvested dividends could generate increased investment returns over time.
 
 
Investors who have elected to reinvest their dividends have enjoyed the following returns over time (as of 3/31/2017):
 
Buy, Sell, or Hold?
 
Keep in mind, Realty Income’s share price (of $72.00) is down considerably over the last 11 months.
 
The dividend yield has compressed by 230 bps, representing a cushion for investors (Note: I had a “Trim” on shares at $72.00).
 
 
Let’s examine Realty Income’s dividend yield, compared with the peers:
 
 
Now let’s examine the AFFO Payout Ratio:
 
 
 
Realty Income's Payout Ratio is higher than most peers, but the company does not have considerable office exposure and the quality of the income stream justifies the low 80% ratio. Now let’s examine the P/FFO multiple:
 
 
 
As you see, Realty Income trades at the highest P/FFO multiple in the Net Lease REIT sector, but that does not mean shares are expensive. I would argue that shares are now “soundly” valued and that the premium valuation (relative to the peers) is warranted based on management’s skillful strategy for managing risk. Obviously, I would encourage investors to buy Realty Income if the price drops, but I consider fundamentals sound and I’m maintaining my BUY recommendation.
 
 
Although the Amazon/Whole Foods deal was a surprise last week, it should be no surprise that Realty Income has been able to successfully manage risk for more than two decades. The fact that Amazon is betting on brick and mortar serves to validate the argument that real estate is an essential asset class for delivering goods and Realty Income remains in an enviable position to be the dominant Net Lease consolidator.
 
In conclusion, if I had to buy just one Net Lease REIT, it would be Realty Income... O, O, O, it's magic!

          HS2 is an ongoing nightmare   

Announced in last weeks Queen's Speech was the extension of the current planned route of HS2. As part of the debate on the Queen's Speech in the House of Lords, Lord Framlington urged the government to scrap the project in the following speech.

"My Lords, I make no apology for returning to the vexed question of HS2, as this ridiculous scheme is getting under way. Demolition is starting, burial grounds dug up, trees felled and communities disrupted. The utmost pressure must be kept on in the hope that government common sense will prevail and an urgent review will be ordered.

I begin with the title of a comprehensive article written by the journalist Simon Jenkins, which traces the history of HS2, entitled, “HS2: the zombie train that refuses to die”. He wrote:

“It is the most extravagant infrastructure project in British history—but nobody can say why we need it. How did HS2 ever get so far?”—

a question we must ask ourselves and, depending on the answer, take the necessary action. Even at this late stage, it can be halted. The London garden bridge, another vanity project, has been reviewed and is unlikely to go ahead, despite the considerable sums already spent on it.​
It is difficult to comprehend the enormity of the folly that is HS2. It is so monstrous that most people simply cannot believe it. On 31 January this year, I moved an amendment to the Third Reading of the HS2 Bill that would have put an end to it. Most of your Lordships voted against my amendment, while telling me privately that they agreed with it, but 26 Members of this House voted with me to stop HS2.

Were these 26 ill-informed, or were they perhaps the best informed Members of your Lordships’ House? Two of them were former Permanent Secretaries to the Treasury. Terry Burns, the noble Lord, Lord Burns, saw HS2 at first hand under Gordon Brown, and the noble Lord, Lord Macpherson, studied it under David Cameron and George Osborne. Both of them were so convinced of the case against continuing that they voted to stop it even at that stage.

Every dispassionate observer who is properly qualified and experienced in our railway system is opposed to it. A long list of railway experts who have no axe to grind have written to Ministers pleading for a meeting to put their case to help the Government to understand the dangers. They have been rebuffed.

Every supposed benefit of this project, including speed and capacity, has been comprehensively taken apart by those professionals, who really know what they are talking about. The noble Lord, Lord Darling, when he was Secretary of State for Transport, was so worried about the scheme that he commissioned a no-nonsense report from Sir Rod Eddington, the former boss of British Airways. Eddington’s report, which was published in 2006 was emphatic: this kind of scheme was wrong in principle and should not be undertaken. His report was enthusiastically welcomed by the Secretary of State and officials in Whitehall.

A critical report by Sir Jeremy Heywood in 2016 has not yet been made public. I wonder why. A consultant in this field, Michael Byng, was commissioned by the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, to scrutinise the costings of HS2. His results showed that the scheme is likely to cost twice as much as the original estimate. We are talking about unbelievable amounts of money. The forecast cost was £56 billion, now thought to be nearer £70 billion, and some say eventually £100 billion.

I am reliably informed that for the price of HS2 we could rebuild and re-equip every hospital in England and Wales. Today we launched our new aircraft carrier HMS “Queen Elizabeth”, which cost £3 billion, described as an astronomic sum. In HS2 terms, it is peanuts. This scheme will last for years, a running sore constantly reminding whatever Government are in power of the massive mistake that was made through sheer obstinacy and an unwillingness to listen. It will be an ongoing financial and environmental nightmare.

Serious disruption will soon start in Camden despite the fact that there are still uncertainties surrounding how the scheme will work in the area. Homes are to be demolished, burial grounds dug up, businesses disrupted, and mature London plane trees felled. The Woodland Trust tells us that, further afield along its route, 63 ancient woodlands will be lost or damaged. This entire project is not worth the life of a single tree.

To defend the indefensible, HS2 is reported to be employing 17 PR firms to sell its case—gravy train upon gravy train. One firm is reported as being paid ​£280,000 to extol the virtues of HS2 to primary schools along the route. There is a constant stream of reports of hirings, firings and squabbling over contracts by those seeking a slice of the huge sums involved.

What we need, what we must have before things go any further, is an urgent, open, Treasury-led review of the situation with proper professional independent advice taken and listened to. What harm can that do? What are people afraid of? Perhaps it is the truth. Surely, when such huge amounts of public money are being spent and such immense damage is being done, both to our urban environment and our countryside, it is vital to get at the truth."

          State revises revenue forecast again, this time upward   
The state Finance and Administration Department announced today that it was putting $60 million back into the forecast for revenue for the year ending today, after an earlier $70 million cut.

The release:

The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration has notified leaders of the state General Assembly of a revised revenue forecast due to better than expected state revenues.

The State had previously cut the revenue forecast by $70 million after several months of unexpectedly low collections and significant refunds to state taxpayers. However, strong collections in May and June, sparked in part by a rebound in sales tax collections, led to an additional revision at the close of the fiscal year, June 30th.

“We’ve had an unusual year in many regards,” said Larry Walther, chief fiscal officer of the State. “Sales taxes were down for much of the year and behind our expectations. However, that changed for the better over the last two months.”

Arkansas’ system of balanced budgets prevents spending beyond the forecast of available revenues. Adjustments to the forecast limit the amount available to agencies to spend.

With Friday’s revision, the state will have spent $5.323 billion in FY17. Of the $60 million made available as a result of Friday’s revision, $43 million will go to the state’s Medicaid Trust fund.

Additional information on the revenue report for the month of June and the year ending June 30th will be released Wednesday morning.
No mention made of the $43 million cut from the budget for the coming year.

          US STOCKS-Nike lifts S&P, Dow; biotechs limit gains on Nasdaq   

* Nike rises to three-month high

* All three indexes on track to post weekly losses

* S&P tech sector on track to post biggest weekly drop in 6mths

* Indexes up: Dow 0.37 pct, S&P 0.25 pct, Nasdaq 0.12 pct(Updates to early afternoon)

By Ankur Banerjee and Anya George Tharakan

June 30 (Reuters) - The S&P and the Dow Jones IndustrialAverage were higher in early afternoon trading on Friday,boosted by Nike's decision to sell on Amazon, while a fall inbiotechnology stocks capped gains on the Nasdaq.

Nike shares rose as much as 9.4 percent to athree-month high, after the world's largest footwear maker saidit would launch a pilot program with Amazon.com to sella limited product assortment on its website.

The Nasdaq biotech index was down 0.71 percent, draggedlower by Regeneron and Celgene.

The S&P technology index was up 0.28 percent butwas still on track to post its biggest weekly loss in six monthsas worries about the sector's valuation prompted investors tobuy defensive stocks.

"Tech has gone too far too fast and was due for acorrection," said Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist at U.S.Bank Wealth Management.

"The sector's valuation is elevated but hasn't reached apoint of extreme concern because it is still a 'buy-the-dip'sector and is expected to grow further."

June 30 (Reuters) - The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones IndustrialAverage were higher in late morning trading on Friday, boostedby Nike's decision to sell on Amazon, while the Nasdaq waslittle changed as a recovery in tech stocks sputtered.

Nike shares rose as much as 9.4 percent to athree-month high after the world's largest footwear maker saidit would launch a pilot program with Amazon.com to sella limited product assortment on its website.

The S&P technology index was up 0.18 percent butwas still on track to post its biggest weekly loss in six monthsas worries about the sector's valuation prompted investors tobuy defensive stocks.

"Tech has gone too far too fast and was due for acorrection," said Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist at U.S.Bank Wealth Management.

"The sector's valuation is elevated but hasn't reached apoint of extreme concern because it is still a 'buy-the-dip'sector and is expected to grow further."

A fall in bank shares also limited gains, with the financialsector down 0.1 percent.

Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs were thebiggest drags on the S&P and the Dow.

All three indexes are on track to post weekly losses.

At 11:06 a.m. ET (1506 GMT), the Dow Jones IndustrialAverage was up 63.42 points, or 0.3 percent, at21,350.45, the S&P 500 was up 4.79 points, or 0.19percent, at 2,424.49.

June 30 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks were slightly up in earlytrading on Friday after tech stocks appeared to recover from asteep selloff and consumer spending data for May showed steadyeconomic growth.

U.S. consumer spending rose modestly in May and inflationcooled, pointing to a slow-but-steady economic expansion thatcould still lead the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates bythe end of the year.

The S&P 500 and the Dow recorded their worst dailypercentage drop in about six weeks on Thursday as a recentdecline in technology shares deepened and outweighed strength inbank shares.

"It would not surprise me to have a lot of volatility,considering the financials were particularly strong yesterdayand technology was particularly weak," said Andre Bakhos,managing director at Janlyn Capital LLC.

"We have what appears to be some sector rotation going on,and its occurring at the end of the quarter and its adding tothe volatility."

Towards the end of the second quarter, the market witnesseda few volatile days. On Wednesday, the tech-heavy Nasdaq postedits best day since Nov. 7.

Tech stocks, which have led the S&P 500's 8-percent gainthis year, pulled back recently as some investors questioned thesector's high valuations.

At 9:32 a.m. ET the Dow Jones industrial average wasup 96.23 points, or 0.45 percent, at 21,383.26, the S&P 500was up 10.15 points, or 0.42 percent, at 2,429.85 and theNasdaq Composite was up 17.31 points, or 0.28 percent,at 6,161.66.

The remainder of 2017 looks likely to bring more of thesame, said Brad McMillan, Chief Investment Officer forCommonwealth Financial Network.

"More growth, more market appreciation and morenormalization across the board. After the turmoil in recentmonths and years, this is not a bad place to be."

          Chinese telecom firm ZTE to double 5G research spending   
HONG KONG - Chinese telecom equipment maker ZTE Corp will double its research spending on fifth-generation mobile network (5G) from this year, the company said, as China steps up the push to build the world's largest 5G network.

ZTE said it would invest 2 billion yuan ($295.5 million) in 5G research and development every year starting this year, up from 1 billion yuan invested last year. The budget could rise further as China aims to roll out 5G by 2020, the company said.

China and the United States are racing to lead the development of 5G technology, which will be significantly faster than the current 4G network. International standards for 5G are yet to be finalised.

China's cumulative 5G capital spending is expected to rise to 1.65 trillion yuan by 2025, a recent research paper from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology forecast, with equipment makers such as ZTE and Huawei Technologies set to be major beneficiaries.

China Mobile, the country's largest state-owned telecom operator, started field tests of China's first 5G base station in the southern city of Guangzhou last week.

ZTE said it currently employed 3,000 people engaged in research and development for 5G. A spokeswoman for the company declined to say if it planned to increase that headcount.

          Katherine Glasheen is designing drones to think differently.   
Katherine Glasheen

Katherine GlasheenKatherine Glasheen has a nickname fit for an engineer: machine, and it is not just because it rhymes with her last name.

A second year aerospace PhD student, she has a drive to advance technology, and is conducting research on socially aware drones, a project that will become increasingly important with wider adoption of UAVs. Today, however, it is something that is future focused enough that even her advisor calls it, "kind of wild."

“The technology is developing faster than society can handle," Glasheen says. "One drone delivering a package in downtown Denver is challenging enough, but what about when there are hundreds of them? We need systems that are scalable and robust."

Her ideas have already earned a major stamp of approval. She was recently awarded a prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.

Kind of Wild

Her proposal calls for using internet data to infer local attitudes about drones.

"If the UAV could analyze news articles and comments on websites and knew people in the area it was traveling were uncomfortable with drones, it could deliberately avoid flying over places like schools, hospitals, and parks,” Glasheen says.

It was an intriguing possibility for her advisor, Associate Professor Eric Frew.

"The idea is to create an 'ethical drone' that understands and tries to respect local attitudes. It is a novel way to think about combining unmanned systems, big data, and artificial intelligence. I've not heard anyone suggest it before," Frew says.

Less Artificial, More Intelligence

To get there, Glasheen is first working on improving more conventional trip planning methods.

"For a delivery drone, the path it's following is preplanned and loaded before it takes off. That doesn't account for any variables it could encounter on the way where it would need to change course," Glasheen says.

What kind of variables? Think of the things you encounter driving to the grocery store. As humans, we can quickly react if a driver runs a red light. If we encounter traffic, we can take a different route.

While some drones have rudimentary obstacle avoidance systems, a quick YouTube search will show they are less than ideal in execution. In addition, obstacle avoidance cannot account for things like encroaching stormy weather.

Glasheen wants the drone to be able to change course and make adjustments midflight, but the AI is not the only problem. The kind of computer needed to process that much data is large and heavy, and would quickly turn a flying drone into a grounded paperweight.

Drones in the Cloud

That is where the cloud can come in come in. She sees a future where UAVs can regularly contact cloud systems to relay problems and determine solutions.

"The drone has a small brain, but there's a big brain in the cloud. If the drone could ping the cloud and asks for help, you can get a solution to safely navigate through an environment," Glasheen says.

The technology has great potential for the future. While delivery drones are often discussed as a public use, a UAV that can exchange data with the cloud could improve military reconnaissance and even weather forecasting.

"It's all so exciting. The field is evolving every day and you can see new applications," Glasheen says. "A lot of it still unknown, which makes some people uncomfortable, but for me it's thrilling."

          The US fertility rate just hit a record-low — and it could signal a 'demographic time bomb'   

Newborn baby at hospital

After years of consistent decline, new data reveal the US fertility rate has hit a record low, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Provisional 2016 data showed a 1% decline from the year prior. That brings the general fertility rate among women 15 to 44 to 62.0 births per 1,000 women.

Experts in demographic trends fear the falling rate could signal the beginning of larger economic woes for the US.

In many industrialized countries around the world, the male-dominated labor force is shifting to become more egalitarian. As more members of both sexes choose to prioritize their careers over their personal lives, family planning is taking a backseat.

In the most extreme cases, such as in the so-called "demographic time bomb" that has formed in Japan, populations have actually started declining. Economists have forecasted this demographic time bomb — a way of referring to the vicious cycle of low fertility and economic downturn — could spread in 20 years' time to other countries that have similar demographics as  Japan in the late 1990s.

They call it the "Japanization" of the global economy.

US population growth has followed a similar, albeit less extreme, trajectory. Millennials are increasingly choosing to forgo parenting in an effort to move up in their careers, pay off their massive student debt, and gain financial independence from their parents.

The US case is notable, however, when it comes to its lack of federal parental leave policies. There are only three other countries on Earth that do not offer employees paid time off on a national level. Research has found this factors into low fertility because poor work-life balance forces couples to choose between having kids or pursuing careers. They can't do both.

For that reason, demographers often encourage world leaders to enact more family-friendly policies if they want to boost fertility rates. 

"The countries that have been most successful at adjusting for a dual role for women, both as mothers and as professionals or at least workers, interestingly end up with more of both," Richard Jackson, president of the nonprofit research group Global Aging Institute, told Business Insider in 2016. " They end up with higher fertility rates and more working women."

We try to be sensitive about international issues, but there's a limit to what we can know. Forecast Bar, for instance, seems perfectly happy to provide forecasts for London in both the UK and Ontario. If its forecasts do exist but aren't great, that's nearly impossible for us to discover in advance (but easy for users to note in comments to help other readers).

MacPaw is based in Ukraine, so I'm sure they're aware of app that are too U.S.-centric as well.

          State revises revenue forecast again, this time upward   
The state Finance and Administration Department announced today that it was putting $60 million back into the forecast for revenue for the year ending today, after an earlier $70 million cut.

The release:

The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration has notified leaders of the state General Assembly of a revised revenue forecast due to better than expected state revenues.

The State had previously cut the revenue forecast by $70 million after several months of unexpectedly low collections and significant refunds to state taxpayers. However, strong collections in May and June, sparked in part by a rebound in sales tax collections, led to an additional revision at the close of the fiscal year, June 30th.

“We’ve had an unusual year in many regards,” said Larry Walther, chief fiscal officer of the State. “Sales taxes were down for much of the year and behind our expectations. However, that changed for the better over the last two months.”

Arkansas’ system of balanced budgets prevents spending beyond the forecast of available revenues. Adjustments to the forecast limit the amount available to agencies to spend.

With Friday’s revision, the state will have spent $5.323 billion in FY17. Of the $60 million made available as a result of Friday’s revision, $43 million will go to the state’s Medicaid Trust fund.

Additional information on the revenue report for the month of June and the year ending June 30th will be released Wednesday morning.
No mention made of the $43 million cut from the budget for the coming year.

          Midyear Oscars Forecast: What Deserves Recognition, What Will Get It   

The first half of 2017 is now behind us, and so far the year’s best movies include Michael Showalter’s touching and timely romantic comedy “The Big Sick,” Jordan Peele’s incisive horror comedy “Get Out” and Edgar Wright’s adrenalized car-chase flick “Baby Driver.”

If you throw in films that have screened for the press or been unveiled at film festivals, you can add Matt Reeves’ dazzling “War for the Planet of the Apes,” Ruben Ostlund’s Palme d’Or-winning satire “The Square,” Andrey Zvyagintsev’s searing family drama “Loveless,” Taylor Sheridan’s moody suspense thriller “Wind River,” William Oldroyd’s unsettling period film “Lady Macbeth” and David Lowery’s beautiful meditation “A Ghost Story.”

“Apes” will no doubt be a blockbuster, “Get Out” was already a hit and “The Big Sick” and “Baby Driver” have the look of breakouts, but for the most part these are indie gems that deserve nurturing and celebrating.

And that’s why it’s troubling to start examining their Oscar potential – because films like “The Big Sick” and “A Ghost Story” deserve to be embraced without pundits pointing out that the former is a dark horse and the latter probably won’t even register on most voters’ radar.

But pointing out stuff like that, I’m afraid, is part of the job. So is the annual midyear awards forecast, a bit of prognostication hampered by the fact that true awards movies are seldom released in the first six months of the year. Sure, you’ll have occasional exceptions like “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” – but last year, for instance, “Hell or High Water” was the only Best Picture nominee to have publicly screened by the end of June, and that was at the Cannes Film Festival.

A few other acting awards came out of first-half festivals: Ruth Negga in “Loving,” Viggo Mortensen in “Captain Fantastic,” Isabelle Huppert in “Elle.” But at this point last year, “Moonlight” was barely a blip on the awards radar, “La La Land” hadn’t been seen publicly and the only eventual Oscar nominees to have been released were “Hail, Caesar!” (Best Production Design) and “The Jungle Book” (Best Visual Effects).

Still, it’s foolish to completely write off six months worth of 2017 films. “Get Out” and “The Big Sick,” for example, should both be strong contenders in the Best Original Screenplay race, where smaller and more adventurous films are often recognized – and while they have genre constraints that may well keep them from getting the attention they might deserve as Best Picture contenders, they can’t be written off in that category until we see what else is unveiled this year.

“Baby Driver,” given its over-the-top violence, will likely be even more hampered by its genre and tone, though it’s fun and stylish enough to overcome a lot of resistance.

In the acting categories, “The Big Sick” should be a player, though supporting players Ray Romano and especially Holly Hunter probably have a better shot than the film’s wonderful leads, Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan. Kirsten Dunst might have a shot for Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,” Nicole Kidman perhaps less of one.

Among the film-festival entries, Jeremy Renner is as good as he’s ever been in “Wind River,” and I would love to see Florence Pugh recognized for her brilliant performance in “Lady Macbeth,” though I know that the Spirit and Gotham Awards are probably her best shot. And I would nominate Rooney Mara just for the astonishing, wordless scene in “A Ghost Story” in which she comes home to an empty house after the death of her husband (Casey Affleck) and eats almost an entire pie in one extended, harrowing sequence.

And it’ll be a real shame if the Actors Branch continues to resist Andy Serkis’ motion-capture performances even after “War for the Planet of the Apes,” which is carried not by the big action sequences but by intimate scenes between Serkis and other actors, some playing apes and others playing humans.

Beyond that, some of the year’s big movies – “Beauty and the Beast,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Wonder Woman” – figure to get consideration in the below-the-line categories.

And maybe we’ll even get to see the impact of the recent changes that opened nomination voting in the Best Animated Feature category to all Academy members. Three years ago, the smaller committee that then handled nominations snubbed “The LEGO Movie,” the year’s most acclaimed animated film. This year, the larger group will have the chance to consider “The LEGO Batman Movie,” and maybe make up for the oversight.

          Greenback Stabilizes    

The US dollar has been battered this week amid a shift in sentiment seen in how the market responded to comments mostly emanating from the ECB's annual conference.  It is not reallyclear that Draghi or Carney gave new policy indications.  

The ECB President has recognized the improved growth prospects, but until inflation is on a sustainable and durable path toward, a heavy dose of monetary accommodation is still needed.  The Bank of England Governor Carney indicated a week ago that it was not the time to raises the rate.  He has not changed his mind.  He identified a couple of factors he will be looking at to see if removing more accommodation is warranted (the BOE announced an increase in the cash buffer required of banks).  

In recent days, the Fed's leadership have added to their argument for a continued gradual increase in rates by noting rich asset prices and easier financial conditions when the Fed desires less accommodative conditions. This is a reminder that contrary to the traditional understanding of the Fed's dual mandate, it really has three goals: Pricestability, full employment, and least we forget, financial stability.  

The market is tired.  After rising mostly 15-20 bp this week, 10-year yields in Europe are mostly a little lower.  The US 10-year yield is steady.  Yesterday's jump in Europe and the US forced Asia-Pacific countries to play catch-up a bit.  Australian and New Zealand benchmark 10-year yields jumped nine bp.  Japan's 10-year yield rose two basis points, but the yield rose to three-month highs, just inside the BOJ 10 bp band on either side of zero.  

The US dollar is mixed.  The three worst performing majors for the week, the yen, the New Zealand dollar and Norwegian krona are the three strongest currencies on the day.  The euro could not get much above the $1.1440 area seen the NY afternoon yesterday.  Options struck at $1.1360 (~810 mln euros), and $1.1450 (~700 mln euros) may mark the range.  It terms of sentiment; it is striking that despite the slightly higher than expected preliminary June inflation, the euro could not make more headway.  Thisalso seems to reflect a stretched or maybe just a cautious market.  

Headline eurozone inflation eased to 1.3% from 1.4% in May.  Before yesterday's German report, a decline to 1.2% was expected.  The core rate rose more than expected to stand at 1.1%, up from 0.9% in May.   Recall that core rate bottomed at 0.6% in early 2015, and at 0.7% as recently as March.   The threat of deflation has been averted.   

In contrast, Japan's May CPI was little changed.  The 0.4% headline pace was unchanged, while the core rate, which excludes fresh food, ticked up to 0.4% from 0.3%.  Excluding food and energy, the year-over-year rate was unchanged at zero.  Separately, Japan reported that for the 15th month, household spending on a year-over-year basis contracted.  The 0.1%  contraction is the smallest in the run, suggest consumption is stabilizing.  

Separately, the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 3.1% from 2.8%, even as employment rose to its higher since 2007 and the job-to-applicant ratio rose (1.49 from 1.48).  The number of unemployed unexpectedly rose in German as well.   While unemployment claims were unchanged at 5.7%, Germany reported that unemployment increased by 7k instead of fall by 10k as the market expected. 

After reaching almost JPY113 yesterday, the dollar has pulled back against the yen, as the Japanese currency benefits from short-covering on some of the crosses today.   It appears to be finding support around JPY111.70-JPY111.80.      There is a $382 mln option struck at JPY112.00 that rolls off today.  

The resilience of the Chinese economy is one of the notable developments in the H1 17.  It appears to be finishing the period on a positive note.  The official manufacturing PMI rose to 51.7 from 51.2, defying expectations for a decline.  The non-manufacturing PMI increased to 54.9 from 54.5.  New export orders rose to 52.0, the highest since April 2012, and more broadly, new orders rose to 53.1 from 52.3.  Price components rose.   

The yuan had fallen against the dollar in all but one session from June 12 through June 26.  However, in a squeeze in what may have been spurred by the PBOC, the yuan has now risen for four consecutive sessions.  It has risen 0.8% this week, which appears to be its biggest weekly advance since March 2015.  

Sterling extended this week's survey to $1.3030 in Asia before pulling back, perhaps encouraged by a soft GfK consumer confidence (lowest since the referendum) and the lack of an upward revision to Q1 GDP (remained unchanged at 0.2%).  The $1.3055 area corresponds to a retracement objective of the decline since the referendum.  A move above it would encourage talk of $1.34-$1.35.

Meanwhile, the Labour Party is unable to enjoy its strong showing in the recent election.   More than four dozen Labour MPs voted with the Tories on the Queen Speech and will lose the whip.  Some were leaders and will have to be replaced.  What many observers do not seem to realize is that Labour's manifesto (political platform) and the Tory's was not very different on exit from the EU.  However, there are many remains (in both parties) who do not want to lose access to the single market, which is arguably the litmus test for a hard Brexit. 

The US reports personal income and consumption data that will shape forecasts for Q2 GDP.  The core PCE deflator is expected to confirm the general movement in the core CPI and ease for the fourth consecutive month.  Chicago PMI and Univ of Michigan consumer confidence reports are not typically market movers.  Canada reports April GDP, and perhaps, more importantly, the Bank of Canada's survey of senior loan officers may solidify expectations for a rate hike at the next meeting (July 12).  Indicative pricing in the OIS market implies almost a 70% chance of a hike then.

          Interest rates and housing in 2017   
Interest rates and housing in 2017

In 2008, the housing bubble burst in the United States. A recession followed, but Australia was spared. By 2011, housing prices continued to rise in Australia and people were concerned about a housing bubble. Mortgage interest rates are tied with house prices and the affordability of housing. What is in store for us in 2017?

Interest rates in Australia  

Once again, Australians are concerned about interest rate hikes and the bursting of the housing bubble. According to an article in The Australian: "No major country's fortunes are so entwined with property as Australia's." The article goes on to say that over a fifth of Australia's economy is connected with home building, "spurred on by rising house prices."  

Some observers say Australia is heading towards a housing bubble. Recent interest rate hikes may be the tipping point for Australia. On 28 March, the ABC reported that all four major banks and some of their smaller competitors raised interest rates. The title of the article was ominous: Brace yourself for more interest rate rises, analyst says. The article points out that many people took out interest only loans, but soon will have to start paying "principle and interest payments and potentially they can't afford those repayments", according to Omkar Joshi, banking analyst with Regal Funds Management.  

Not everyone agrees with these scenarios. Bill Evans, chief economist for Westpac Bank, believes banks and the government will take steps to keep interest rates low. His April article in Westpac's Business Focus says, "Australian interest rates on hold 2017 and 2018." He does see a potential problem with over-regulation, but he believes RBA rate cuts will "help engineer a manageable slowdown in house price inflation without precipitating a dangerous over reaction in the housing markets."  

Australian Housing Interest Rates 

A look at Australian housing interest rates helps explain why house prices have been rising. These are statistics for variable mortgage rates

  • In 1990, rates were 17.0 percent
  • In 1995, Australians were paying 10.5 percent
  • In 2000, interest rates were 8.05 percent
  • In 2005, rates were about 7.3 percent
  • In 2010, rates reached a peak of 7.79 percent
  • In 2015, the peak rate was 5.35 percent
  • In June of 2017, interest rates averaged 5.10 percent 

The above rates are national averages. Lower and higher rates are charged by different lenders. Some lenders today are charging less than 4 percent interest. The figures above nevertheless show a distinct downward trend in interest rates of well over 10 percent since 1990.  

While interest rates have fallen, house prices have risen by 7.2 percent per annum since the 1990s. Inflation doesn't account for the rise. Inflation in general has only been 2 to 3 percent per annum. According to the Reserve Bank of Australia, "the shift to a low inflation and low interest rate environment in the early 1990s greatly increased household access to finance." This in turn led to increased demand for housing and increased housing prices.

Australian housing interest rates 

The Australian dollar is low compared to other currencies. This has resulted in overseas investors purchasing Australian properties. According to an article in the Sydney Morning Herald, Chinese investors are buying apartments in Sydney and Melbourne and account for 80 percent of foreign investment in Australian real estate.  

The reason is because they see Australian property as a cheap investment. In Shanghai, a two-bedroom apartment costs $900,000, which is 25 percent higher than the price of an equivalent apartment in Sydney. While rental returns in Shanghai are only 1.5 percent, Chinese investors can realise larger returns on their Sydney apartments.  

The Chinese government recently restricted the outflow of money in foreign investments, but the results of that are yet to be seen.  

Is the Housing Bubble About to Burst?  

In 2011, we published Interest Rates, Housing and the Economy: HIA Forecasts 2011. Housing Industry Association (HIA) Senior Economist Andrew Harvey suggested there might be a slowdown in the housing market then. "With the increasingly weak building outlook, this is only going to get worse and will place further upwards pressures on both prices and rents," he said.  

Throughout Australia, prices have continued to rise. More recently, there has been more volatility in the Australian housing market. In Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart, prices have risen over 3 percent between the December quarter of 2016 and the March quarter of 2017. Brisbane has remained flat, while prices have fallen slightly in Darwin and Perth. On average, though, prices have risen by 2.2 percent in Australia's capital cities in the same period.  

Even the experts are divided on the issue. Some say the bubble will burst while others think prices will remain relatively stable. What does the average Australian think? We did a survey of of hipages subscribers and they may have come to some of the most reasonable solutions to the problem: 

  • 20 percent said stamp duty should be reduced or abolished
  • 17 percent felt there should be more control over foreign investment
  • 12.2 percent said negative gearing should be reduced or abolished

They also suggested making regional centres more accessible. Australia's population is condensed in the major cities, but large areas of coastal Australia remain relatively unpopulated. If Australians were able to live in regional centres, perhaps real estate prices wouldn't be as high. This is certainly true in many regional centres, but many Australians can't find employment in these areas.  

Most people feel the rise in property prices is unsustainable. Generations X and Y are having a particularly hard time finding affordable housing. They can't save 10 or 20 percent to purchase a home in Sydney or Melbourne, so are looking further afield for housing. It's understandable. If wages had kept up with housing prices, the average income in Australia today would be $162,000 per year.  

No one has a crystal ball, but clearly something needs to be done to protect the Australian housing market. If interest rates go up, many Australians will be forced to foreclose on their properties and we will face the same scenario the United States faced in 2008. How long interest rates remain low is yet to be seen, but we have to hope for the best and plan carefully before purchasing a house.  

Getting a fixed interest mortgage while interest rates are low may be one solution. According to most economists, getting a short term interest only mortgage is the worst solution. It may allow you to get into the housing market, but if prices fall, you will be stuck with interest and principal payments in the future and may not be able to afford to sell or pay your mortgage.

And what is the way forward? At heart, the answer is quite simple but the complexities of personalities and politicking have complicated the descent and will hinder any recovery. Elected in a landslide just four years ago, the Liberals have ­frittered their mandate, undermined public confidence, failed on the most important task of budget repair and gone some way to ­making a Shorten Labor government inevitable. Linking poor policy, clumsy politics and susceptibility to personality-driven leadership solutions is straight-talking — or rather the lack of it. As George ­Orwell explained better than anyone, the retreat from direct language in politics is a symptom and a cause of muddled thinking. We cannot think with clarity if we don’t speak plainly, and vice versa. The Liberals have fallen into the leftist whirlpool of spin. They have succumbed to what is poison for the centre-right — fashion. Tempted to endear themselves to the progressives of the media/political class, they have forgotten their core value, the primacy of good sense over superficial appeal. Like the inch-deep state Labor model that Kevin Rudd took to Canberra, they have elevated ­politicking over policy substance. This has manifested itself in meaningless rhetoric, aimless positioning and an obvious lack of policy coherence. Superficial language has encouraged superficial policy, and vice versa. The damage is anything but superficial. It is substantive and long term — for the party and the nation. On climate, energy, education and fiscal repair the Liberals have surrendered policy strength and differentiation. Nods to fashion have them almost indistinguishable in practical terms from what is now a deeply green-left ALP. As we contemplate the prospect of a Shorten-Di Natale government that would deliver higher taxes, deeper deficits, more debt and higher power prices, we need to comprehend that this is precisely the formula that has been delivered so far by the Coalition. The difference is only in degree. Perhaps the only clear policy contrast is the extent of accountability for unions. It should have been impossible for a Coalition government to drift down this path. The Liberals have not been prepared to speak simple truths; to argue unpalatable facts. (Let’s leave the Nationals out of this for now because they have been largely innocent spectators as their Coalition partners have fallen into dysfunction.) There are pivotal aspects of important national debates that are obvious to any well-informed voter or self-evident to the common sense of mainstream Australians but are never mentioned in direct terms by Liberal politicians. The only people who seem to be prepared to say what they think are political outliers such as Pauline Hanson; she is prone to wade in without nuance or factual ballast yet still wins a political dividend just for engaging on the tough issues. The debate, otherwise, is constrained like a polite dinner party within invisibly delineated, politically correct boundaries set by the media/political class Take climate policy. No Liberal politicians, much less those in cabinet, will even discuss modelling and observations on global warming, preferring to inoculate themselves from leftist attacks by repeating meaningless mantras about “believing” in climate change. You may as well say you believe in tides. The dinner table debate on ­climate assumes two enduring myths: that scientific research has settled on a climate trajectory; and that Australia’s emissions reductions will make a difference. So it is all about how we cut emissions. Significant developments such as the publication in Nature Geo­science this month of a paper by Benjamin Santer and others (including Michael E. Mann) on differences between modelling and measured warming are ignored. “Over most of the early 21st century, however, model tropospheric warming is substantially larger than observed,” these pre-eminent scientists found. “We conclude that model overestimation of tropospheric warming in the early 21st century is partly due to systemic deficiencies in some of the post-2000 external forcings used in mode simulations.” Hold the presses. They are ­admitting warming is not as bad as they predicted. And they don’t ­really know why — so much for the science being settled. Given that politicians are at the forefront of emissions reduction, renewable energy and taxation policies designed to reduce global warming, they should be engaged in discussing crucial facts about the problem they claim to be ­solving. Voters may just be interested. Even if, for argument’s sake, we accept the most alarmist forecasts we still hear no politicians addressing the manifest futility of our policy responses. We are told to accept the world’s most expensive electricity at diminished reliability to meet non-enforceable emissions reductions targets that are ignored or not even set by many nations and cannot make the slightest difference to the global environment because they are being dwarfed by much larger increases in emissions overseas. Few things could be more important to the economy and national debate of this energy-rich nation; yet this element of debate is studiously ignored by Liberals — presumably for fear of attracting the opprobrium of the media/political class. Tony Abbott speaks plainly about it now, only after ­losing the prime ministership. Likewise in education, Liberals do not point out that all the available evidence suggests increased expenditure will not improve our declining standards. Instead, they will borrow and spend an extra $23.5 billion and claim virtue ­because this is less reckless than Labor’s goal. On fiscal repair, the Liberals ­accept what the parliament may allow, effectively offering a budget veto to Labor, Greens and crossbench senators. Cold arithmetic dictates what can pass the Senate but where is the advocacy for more reform and less spending? The Liberals under Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull invented new taxes, directly contradicting their narrative and ideological wellspring. They broke promises. Plain speaking gave way to weasel words as they tried to compete with Labor’s disingenuous “fairness” argument. This week Abbott spoke clearly about the financial and strategic madness of buying inferior submarines at a higher cost with longer delays when better, more cost-effective and timely nuclear options are available. Again, this clarity clashed with his language and actions as prime minister, highlighting how the hidden inhibitions of power seem to undermine logical decision-making and unvarnished arguments. To revive their fortunes and defeat Labor, the Liberals must get back to their roots of rational and pragmatic policy based on frank and honest debate. This is their foundation. This conviction came to me in adulthood, as it does for many, after a misspent youth of ideological delusion. Writing in Quadrant this month my News Corp colleague Tim Blair explained his centre-right conversion in perceptively blunt terms. “The best part of adopting conservatism after years of leftism, by the way, is how much easier life becomes,” he concluded. “If you’re a conservative, facts are generally all you need to establish a case or mount an argument. If you’re a leftist, however, you always have to find a way around the facts, which is why combative lefties always sound like lawyers knowingly representing a guilty client.” Here lies the secret of the ­Coalition’s present disarray and future revival. They’ve forgotten first principles and need to examine facts, debate practical solutions and fight to deliver them. Compromise will always have its way but they might start with conviction instead of guardedness, and give us clarity before endless subclauses. Orwell argued that just as our language becomes “ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish” so too does the “slovenliness of our language” make it easier for us to entertain foolish thoughts. Damn straight.</em>

          2017 Spring Matsuris: Details & Tips for Japan Festival Boston & Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival   


Update 5/11/17: Due to the weather forecast for Saturday, the Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival organizers decided to move the matsuri indoors to the rain location at the Schluntz Gym.

Boston's two largest Japanese festivals are coming up! In the past five years attendance at both festivals has grown around six-fold. The Japan Festival Boston started off in Copley Square with 10,000 festivalgoers in 2012. Last year 60,000 people attended the festival on the Boston Common. Attendance at the Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival has grown from around 250 people in 2012 to over 1,500 last year.


Japan Festival Boston




Japan Festival Boston is New England's largest matsuri. This year there will be 76 regular booths, 37 food booths, 50 performances on 2 stages, 50 workshops, and a Cosplay Deathmatch. Check their Facebook page for updates.

As usual there will be lots of arts organizations and businesses, many of whom have participated in past years including Tewassa, GrayMist Studio & Shop, SAORI Worcester, Kaji Aso Studio, Chikako Mukai of Chikako Designs, Julie Kohaya of Heavenly Cranes Jewelry, and amezaiku artist Candy Miyuki (listed as Candy5). There will be at least a couple of businesses selling kimono and yukata – Nomura Kimono Shop from Japan and Ohio Kimono will both be back for their second year at the festival. An interesting new vendor is NPO Reborn Kyoto which "works to nurture the independence of the women and young in developing countries through instruction of cloth fabrication and textile technology using donated Kimono from all over the Japan." See video from Kigali Today, although most of it is in Kinyarwanda, the interview with executive officer Yasuko Yamahira is in English. Another interesting new booth is a peace group called PeaceProject869. "We make opportunities to consider “What is Peace for you?” by [f]olding origami cranes for people whom we meet all over the world through our studying abroad."

The food offerings are growing more diverse and branching out from the Japanese community to include poke restaurants, fusion rice burgers, spam musubi, and more chain restaurants. This year's food vendors include a mix of independent local businesses and chains with Boston locations that are based in Japan and other places, as well as a few others.

Independent local: YumeWoKatare with 6 booths that will include dishes not usually served at the restaurant, Snappy Ramen, Oga's (listed as Kushiya), Ganko Ittetsu, Rice Burg, Yoki Express, Hana Japan, Cafe Mami, Ittoku (listed as Izakaya Ittoku), Sakanaya, Itadaki, Neponset Cafe, Big Rock Oyster, and I am guessing that Hiromoto’s Ultra Okonomiyaki & Hiromoto’s ultra candy shop will be run by Kevin Hiromoto, owner of Boston's only Japanese grocery store, Ebisuya

Chains with Boston locations: Santouka, Beard Papa's, Ogawa Coffee, Go Go Curry, Pabu (listed as Pabu Izakaya), Love Art Sushi, and Lady M.

Daiei Trading, one of the largest Japanese food importers in the US, will also have two booths.


Although the organizers have increased the number of food booths – up from 22 last year – I'm not sure that will result in shorter lines since turnout is likely to be much higher than last year. In past years, the lines have been insanely long so you should take snacks, especially if you're going with children or others who can't wait to eat. There are fast food places near the Boston Common but most are on the other side of the Common away from the festival. The festival has reduced the Fast Pass to $30 (it was $50 when they introduced it last year). This allows you to bypass the main line at a booth, although for popular booths there may still be a line for Fast Pass cardholders. It's well worth it if you're going with a family or group, but not very economical for individuals. Make sure to read carefully - there are restrictions.

Date & Time
Sunday, April 30, 2017
11am - 6pm

Location
Boston Common at the Beacon & Charles Street corner (near Frog Pond).
See festival map.

How you can help
The festival is not cheap to produce and JREX is crowdfunding with Indiegogo (in past years they have used GoFundMe).

There is also a 21+ benefit concert with pop musician Shinji Harada on May 1st. Tickets are $10 for students, $20 for general admission and $60 for VIP. 

Photography Note
I don't remember if this was on their website last year but I noticed this disclaimer at the bottom of the booth list. The festival is highly photographed by media, the festival organizers, and professional and amateur photographers and last year they used a drone to get footage so it's most likely impossible to avoid being photographed.
Disclaimer:
**Visitors, stage performers, and others at this festival will take videos, photos, and other media which may be posted online, in print, and in other mediums. It is possible that exhibitors’ booths may be captured in the aforementioned photos, videos, etc. Please be advised that by agreeing to participate in this festival, you are also consenting to being photographed and/or videotaped.**



Japan Festival Boston Tips

The Japan Festival Boston can be a challenging event for people with disabilities. The crowds are enormous, it's not always easy to move around, and while the booths are all set up along paved walkways, some things (food booths, stages) are set up in grassy areas. Booths are often mobbed which can make shopping difficult. While people with disabilities do attend (the Boston Higashi School always has a booth) it may be difficult for people with mobility issues and those who deal with crowd anxiety/phobia or have difficulty with loud noise. While the Boston Common is the largest location the festival has been held at the crowds are still intense. Advice I would offer to anyone, although especially those with disabilities:

  • Even if you stay for all seven hours of the festival you will not be able to do everything. Pick the things you're most interested in seeing/doing and prioritize getting to those booths/workshops/performances. Expect that everything will take longer than you think it will. It took me several hours to walk around and see all the booths last year and I wasn't stopping at all of them. I would not have been able to get food had a friend not given me her Fast Pass.
  • In past locations it has been possible to hear the performances while walking around the festival but I didn't find that to be the case last year. If you want to see/listen to a performance you will need to plan to be in the immediate vicinity of that stage.
  • If you plan to watch performances but aren't able to sit on the ground or stand for long periods, you will need to bring your own chair, although many people stand so it can be difficult to see.
  • Parking under the Boston Common tends to fill up quickly and is expensive so if you can take the T, it's a much better option. If you have to drive, consider making a reservation via a site like Parkopedia or parking in a garage in Chinatown. There is some on-street metered parking that is free on Sundays but it's very difficult to park in that area.
  • Check the weather and dress appropriately. Dress in layers if you plan to stay there all day. If you have a yukata or kimono feel free to wear it.  
  • Pack sunscreen. You may also want to pack a hat.
  • Everyone in your party should have a fully charged cell phone.
  • Pick a meeting time/location away from the main festival area if you get separated from your party. I would also recommend that if you are planning to go with small children that you consider having them carry some kind of ID with your contact info on it. Last year I saw a small child separated from his adults. It appeared that he was too young to know their phone number and may also not have been an English-speaker.
  • Unless you don't mind standing in line for over an hour, bring your own food or buy a $30 Fast Pass. 
  • Pack as large a bottle of water as you can carry.
  • There are portable toilets along Beacon and Charles Streets but if the crowds are dense it may take a while to walk there.
  • Bring cash and make sure you have a lot of small bills. I believe that all the food vendors are cash only. Some of the commercial vendors take credit cards, but not all. 
  • If you plan to do a lot of shopping, bring a bag to carry your purchases. Some vendors will provide bags, but not all do. 


Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival




The Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival is a very family-friendly community-oriented matsuri with lots of activities for kids that is produced by The Genki Spark and Brookline High School's Japanese Program and sponsored by the Brookline High School PTO and the Japan Society of Boston. Nearly all of the guest artists are returning artists who have performed in past years: Odaiko New England, Mountain River Taiko, Takahashi Minyo Kai, Stuart Paton & Burlington Taiko, and ShinDaiko. There are two new artists this year – sisters Akino Ann & Yoshino Watanabe who play koto. They perform regularly at other music events in the Boston area including the Afternoon Concerts series and the Boston Charity Concert series. They also performed at TEDxBeaconStreet this year and in 2013. See the schedule here.



Ittoku, the popular izakaya in Brighton who was the Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival's first food vendor beginning in 2014, will be back along with Itadaki, Japonaise Bakery, and Hana Japan (who host their own Natsu Matsuri every August). New vendors this year are the Japanese cream puff chain, Beard Papa's, and local fish market, Sakanaya. The food lines aren't as long as the Japan Festival Boston but if you have young children you should plan ahead.

Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival Tips

Brookline High School is fully handicap accessible and the courtyard where the festival is held is a small enough space that you can hear all of the performances regardless of where you are (seeing might be harder if you're on the back end of a line or crowd). The crowd ebbs and flows and most people stay for the full four hours although at peak times it could be challenging for people with crowd anxiety/phobia and definitely for those with issues with noise.
  • Parking is very limited so take the Green Line if you can. The closest stop is Brookline Hills on the D Line. If you have to drive, allow extra time to find parking. There is no parking lot - it's all on street parking (non-metered).
  • If you have sensitive hearing, bring earplugs. Taiko drums are LOUD. Hopefully it won't rain but if it does and the event is held in the gym instead of the courtyard, it will be painful. 
  • Check the weather and dress appropriately. Dress in layers if you plan to stay there all afternoon. If you have a yukata or kimono feel free to wear it. 
  • Pack sunscreen. Many parts of the courtyard are not in shade. You may also want to pack a hat. Sadly, not necessary this year. Forecast calls for rain so the matsuri will be indoors.
  • If you have seasonal allergies, medicate. I volunteered at the Tewassa booth a couple of years ago and even though I was medicated I was covered in pollen and itching when I left. There are a lot of trees and other plant life in the courtyard. 
  • The courtyard is concrete so you may want to bring your own chair or a blanket. 
  • The food lines aren't as bad at the Brookline Cherry Blossom Festival as they are at the Japan Festival Boston but there are fewer options. If you are coming with small children or finicky eaters, you should bring snacks. If you come later, there is a chance that food will be sold out. There are no restaurants within close walking distance of Brookline High School.
  • Pack a bottle of water.
  • There is access to bathrooms and water fountains inside Brookline High School.
  • Bring cash and make sure you have small bills. The food vendors are cash only and I believe the few other booths that sell or accept donations are also cash only. 




Disclosure: I would like to note that I am friends with some of the organizers of both of these festivals, however I publicize them because they are the largest Japanese cultural events in the Boston area, not just because my friends organize them. :)

          WE ARE ALL NEOCONOMIST NOW:   
India is finally getting its 'big bang' tax reform (Rishi Iyengar, June 30, 2017, CNN Money)

The new Goods and Services Tax will replace more than a dozen central and state tariffs, duties and fees levied -- often at different rates across India's 29 states -- on nearly everything sold in the country.

From Saturday, all goods and services will be placed in one of five different tax brackets -- from 0% for most agricultural and food products to 28% for items like jewelry and large electronic appliances.

Each product will now attract a single tax rate across the country, at a stroke removing the long delays faced by truck drivers at every state border where they've had to complete multiple forms and pay officials.

"We should be looking at this as a really big positive," said Shilan Shah, India economist at research firm Capital Economics. The reform will "boost trade among different states, which will help lift domestic demand," he added.

The International Monetary Fund forecasts that the GST will eventually lift India's gross domestic product growth back above 8%. It slipped to 6.1% last quarter following the country's massive cash ban last year.

Oxford Economics estimates that the reform could add 0.6% to India's annual growth rate over the next 15 years.

"It should also go a long way in reviving investors' confidence in Modi's series of 'big-bang' reforms," noted Priyanka Kishore, lead Asia economist at Oxford Economics.

Tuesday, June 27, 2017: Today, International Rivers is releasing the first in-depth economic study of the proposed Inga 3 hydropower project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Authored by noted British economist Tim Jones, “In Debt and In The Dark” exposes glaring flaws in the assumptions about the dam’s likely performance. The report finds that Inga 3 will likely plunge DRC deeper into debt, exporting needed power and delivering little, if any, to Congolese citizens while allowing international investors to reap the benefits.

“Claims about the benefits of Inga 3 are wildly overstated,” says Jones. “In fact, the dam would be a huge financial burden for the government and the Congolese people and provide little if any electricity.”

From the outset, Inga 3 has been plagued by dangerously optimistic assumptions about the dam’s performance, including power output well above the world’s most efficient plants, zero cost overruns, and unrealistically low transmission losses.

Using empirical evidence from the performance of similar hydropower projects in Africa and globally, Jones tested proponents’ claims regarding Inga 3’s socioeconomic benefits. He then forecasted the dam’s potential performance across a range of scenarios.

His findings highlight the serious financial risks associated with the Inga 3 hydropower project, and should be deeply concerning to the DRC government, potential investors, and the Congolese people.

“The DRC is one of the most resource-rich countries in the world, but suffers from massive energy poverty,” says Freddy Kasongo of Observatoire d’Etudes et d’Appui à la Responsabilité Sociale et Environnementale (OEARSE).

Emmanuel Musuyu of Coalition des Organisations de la Société Civile pour le Suivi des Réformes et de l’Action Publique (CORAP), adds, Unfortunately, this study shows that the Inga 3 Dam will further impoverish the DRC without delivering the energy that we need.”

The analysis shows that in the most likely scenarios, the DRC government will lose money on Inga 3. Even with fairly conservative estimates of cost overruns and generous assumptions of power generated, electricity prices, and low interest rates, DRC would stand to lose $618 million per year on the project, or nearly $22 billion over the project’s 35-year lifespan.

These financial losses could run as high as $1.5 billion to $2 billion per year under unfavorable conditions – up to $70 billion over the project’s lifespan – ballooning DRC’s debt levels and harming its long-term economic health.

“Not only will Inga 3 bring in no revenue, it will likely increase DRC’s debt burden,” says Rudo Sanyanga, International Rivers’ Africa Program Director. “And it won’t bring much-needed electricity access to the Congolese people. This would be a disastrous investment for the DRC.”

The project will sell most of its electricity to South Africa and to mines in eastern DRC. The report finds that losses along what would be the world’s longest transmission line to South Africa could leave very little power available to the mines, and the Congolese people would receive little benefit in increased electricity. Under the most likely scenario, 88% of the power would be sold to South Africa, leaving just 90 MW for Kinshasa, rather than the 1000 MW claimed. Under the worst-case scenario, no power at all would be available for sale to consumers in Kinshasha.

International Rivers’ study shows that the DRC could achieve greater energy access for its population if it used the funds intended for Inga 3 on micro-hydropower and solar energy. Such investment would support the DRC to generate enough electricity to increase access by an estimated 2.7 million people throughout the country.

Kate Horner, Executive Director of International Rivers, says, “If the DRC wants to become a true economic leader that sets a model for energy access in Africa, it should press the pause button on the Inga 3 Dam and instead explore energy solutions that can make a lasting difference for the Congolese people.”

          What Scotland’s Renewables Record Means for the Grid   

Record-breaking renewable generation in Scotland was cheered by environmentalists last month. But grid planners remain cautious.

Wind generation accounted for 46 percent of Scotland’s entire electricity needs in May.

“Market design and the existing network are not geared to the level of flexibility and adaptation that is required" in the country, said Aris Karcanias, co-lead of the clean energy practice at FTI Consulting.

"We are challenged as we're dealing with a system imbalance between generation source and demand pool, an aging grid, generation at the distributed level, a lack of transparency in data, and an uncertain regulatory framework often distorted by intervention," said Karcanias.

Karcanias said the need to upgrade the grid is becoming “a meaningful issue” in places such as Scotland where renewable energy penetration is climbing steeply.

Andy Bradley, director at Edinburgh-based Delta Energy & Environment, said news of renewables’ record contribution to the Scottish grid is “fantastic” -- but cautioned that “it’s only one part of the puzzle."

"A lot of other things need to happen," he said.

Advances in power electronics and data analytics tools, including improved weather forecasting techniques, mean it is now possible to plan and deal with the power quality and reliability challenge caused by increasing renewables penetration, he said. 

But current legislation is mainly focused on simply procuring renewable generation at the lowest possible levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and securing dispatchable generation services.

LCOE does not account for the value of trying to match electricity generation with demand, which is particularly important for renewables. 

And the lower the costs, the more it encourages the integration of intermittent renewables onto the grid. “This results in an increase in the system LCOE -- the integration costs which the system operators need to manage, according to Karcanias. 

In the U.K., raising renewable penetration above 20 percent could lead to problems if there are no upgrades to the system or changes in the market design, Karcanias warned.

Nevertheless, the Scottish experience demonstrates how existing grids can handle much higher levels over short periods.

According to an analysis by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) of data provided by WeatherEnergy, Scottish wind power output jumped by nearly 20 percent in May over same period last year.

Wind farms generated enough electricity to supply 100 percent or more of Scottish homes on 11 out of the 31 days in May, the organization said.

“The results for May are part of a growing trend of onshore wind increasingly providing Scotland's electricity needs,” Sam Gardner, WWF Scotland’s acting director, told GTM. 

“As capacity grows and technology develops, there is no doubt renewables will continue to produce the bulk of Scotland's electricity generation. There is significant additional capacity in development, with projects in planning or consented to which now total over 12 gigawatts," said Gardner.

Rising levels of variable renewable generation should not be a problem, Karcanias said -- if they are matched by grid infrastructure improvements, more flexible regulation, increased participation of distribution system operators and improved data and energy storage.

On grid infrastructure, there is a growing requirement for network capacity and increased interconnectivity, as well as improved generator and consumer information flows.  

Regulation, meanwhile, needs to accommodate advances in technology, enable the participation of storage and account for evolving consumer demands and participation in the energy mix.

The good news: Newer renewable energy projects are behaving more and more like traditional power plants. Modern wind or solar farms are increasingly able to improve production forecasts and deliver power quality services that make it easier for them to be integrated into the grid.

System operators are also well aware of the challenges presented by increasing renewable penetration, and are actively working on measures to deal with them.

A Scottish parliamentary committee published a report in February concluding that the grid could function without existing nuclear or thermal plants. 

“The existing network, plus the reinforcements that are coming, will be able to meet the energy demands in no-wind, high-wind, low-water and high-water scenarios,” said Julian Leslie, head of electricity network development at National Grid.

In essence, said Karcanias: “The capability of renewables needs to be improved to operate with a more efficient security margin, but I don't believe that in mature markets you're going to experience risk to supply, as adaptation and innovation is happening across the value chain."


          10 Battery Gigafactories Are Now in the Works. And Elon Musk May Add 4 More   

Gigafactory announcements have been trending in recent months, with plans for at least 10 new plants revealed in the last six months. Half a dozen have been planned in the last month alone.

In Germany, for example, the Daimler subsidiary Accumotive laid the foundation for a $550 million plant designed to take annual lithium-ion battery production from its current level of 80,000 units up to around 320,000.

And Energy Absolute, of Thailand, reportedly has plans for a $2.9 billion factory in Asia, with an annual production capacity of 1 gigawatt-hour per year, scaling to 50 gigawatt-hours a year by 2020. 

Meanwhile, a consortium including Boston Energy and Innovation (BEI), Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly, Primet Precision Materials and Magnis Resources confirmed it will build a 15-gigawatt-hour-a-year plant on IBM’s former Huron Campus manufacturing site in New York.

BEI, Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly and Magnis Resources are also working with Eastman Kodak Group to build a similarly sized plant near Townsville in Queensland, Australia. The backers have said the plant could create around 7,000 jobs. 

More recently a company called Energy Renaissance has lifted the lid on plans for a factory in Darwin, in Australia’s Northern Territory, with a production capacity of a gigawatt-hour of batteries a year.

The most aggressive gigafactory plans, however, remain with the company that came up with the concept. Tesla’s Elon Musk has said he will announce “probably four” new gigafactories this year. One has long been slated for Europe, and another has been confirmed to be in the works in Shanghai, China. 

The recent announcements follow at least five gigafactory proposals put forward for Europe before the end of last year, including facilities in Sweden, Hungary and Poland. Not all the new plants will focus on lithium-ion batteries, though. 

The U.S. lead-acid battery maker Johnson Controls, for example, unveiled proposals for two Chinese plants with a combined annual capacity of 13.5 million batteries.

The company already has production capacity for 16 million batteries a year, from a factory in Chongqing and one in Zhejiang, and is looking invest $250 million in a new plant that could produce up to 7.5 million units a year in Shandong from 2019. 

A second plant would follow in 2020. The increased capacity is aimed at satisfying growing demand from the start-stop engine market.

Overall, Bloomberg reports that global battery-making capacity is set to more than double by 2021, topping 278 gigawatt-hours a year compared to 103 gigawatt-hours at present.

The massive planned increase in battery production feels similar to the Chinese manufacturing boom that radically altered the PV landscape around a decade ago, by creating oversupply that ultimately led to the demise of dozens of solar firms.

Could the same phenomenon be underway in battery manufacturing?

Probably not, say storage experts. The pricing declines won't be nearly as dramatic due to supply chain differences. 

"Unlike PV, battery raw materials are rare metals that have to be mined and processed, so they will have constant supply-demand push-pull, minimizing risk of supply glut," said Ravi Manghani, director of GTM Research's storage practice.

"The industry is in the middle of a huge cost declines phase as manufacturers continue to bring large gigafactories on-line. While some individual vendors may see massive cost step-downs as facilities are activated or new generation products with superior density are launched, on a macro level, the declines are going to be much more gradual," said Manghani.

According to Logan Goldie-Scot, head of Bloomberg New Energy Finance's storage practice, the growth in production capacity is already considered in pricing forecasts.

“We're already factoring the ramp-up in production capacity and ongoing price decreases into our analysis,” said Goldie-Scot. “I don't foresee a step-change reduction in price.”

By 2030, BNEF expects battery pack prices to fall to $73 per kilowatt-hour, down from a volume-weighted average of $273 per kilowatt-hour in 2016. 

“This is an average, though,” he said. “We're already seeing pack prices below $200 per kilowatt-hour.”

David Hart, director at E4tech, an international strategic consultancy focused on sustainable energy, said much of the upcoming capacity will be needed to satisfy forecast growth in vehicle electrification. 

“Building gigafactories is a logical next step in creating a battery industry that's fit for the purpose of supplying vehicles,” he said. “I don't think the rise in gigafactories will necessarily result in a price crash.”

Even if the battery market is unlikely to face the same pressures as solar, it will still grapple with challenges of its own.

“Very importantly, it's not clear that the resource supply chains exist yet for all these factories,” Hart said. “Lithium and cobalt supply needs to be increased, and everyone is vying for supply.”

          BNZ pushes OCR hike track from Q1 to mid-2018 with 'trepidation'; Says Governor change, election makes forecasting harder; Notes weak Q2 inflation guides, but maintains capacity pressure & growth mean tightening bias is needed   

The Reserve Bank’s harshest critics have shifted their view on when the Official Cash Rate will need to be hiked, back slightly towards the central bank’s own projection.

BNZ economists said they were now pencilling in “with some trepidation” the next hike in mid-2018, compared to an earlier expectation of Q1 2018. The Reserve Bank itself isn’t forecasting a rise in the OCR until September 2019 at the earliest. Market pricing is also for mid-2018.

Despite the shift, BNZ economists said there remains huge uncertainty about the next move, and they were still not ruling out a February 2018 rate hike. However, a May or August hike appeared a better reflection of the situation – partly because the Bank would be issuing Monetary Policy Statements in these months, giving a new RBNZ Governor the ability to explain his or her reasoning better than in a pure OCR statement, like in June.

The BNZ’s Head of Research, Stephen Toplis, has been the RBNZ’s number one critic in recent years, with Reserve Bank Governor Graeme Wheeler even resorting to the extraordinary step of complaining to BNZ CEO Anthony Healy about the tone of Toplis’ commentary earlier this year.

In the BNZ’s latest Strategist publication Thursday evening, Toplis sought to keep the heat on the Bank, albeit with perhaps a slightly less aggressive tone. A lot of the reasoning behind the shift was down to how BNZ’s economists expect the RBNZ’s game plan will evolve.

“Given that the Bank’s current forecasts have no increase in rates until late 2019/early 2020, it would be difficult to justify a hike in rates any time soon without first acknowledging that the time for doing so was no longer so distant,” Toplis said.

“As such, we think the first action of the central bank would be to go to a tightening bias, the second to formally bring forward any prospective tightening and then, finally, actually pull the trigger. Given that the Reserve Bank doesn’t seem to like shifting its stance at OCR reviews, this process would need to evolve over three consecutive Monetary Policy Statements.

“If we are right, this would mean, at the earliest, an August 2017 move to a tightening bias, November bring forward the projected tightening and then February 2018 raise rates.”

But it might take slightly longer than that to play out. Toplis argued the Bank’s May MPS revealed no intent whatsoever to position it to move to a tightening stance in August, keeping its ‘neutral’ tone. “As hard to believe as this may be, it is the Bank’s stated view so can’t be ignored,” he said.

Could reasonably be talking rate cuts, but inflation pressures remain

Meanwhile, economic developments since the May MPS were more likely to convince the Bank it was doing the right thing. Q1 GDP was weaker than expected, although BNZ was expecting a pick up in Q2 to cover the shortfall. Inflation indicators – particularly driven by the oil price – had taken a turn to the low side, he said.

BNZ economists themselves had slashed their CPI inflation expectations for the near term to 0.1% in Q2 and 0.2% in Q3. “This now leaves our year to March 2018 annual CPI forecast sitting at just 1.2%.” On top of this, the TWI exchange rate tracker has remained higher than the RBNZ had been picking, which itself would shave 0.5% of its year-ahead CPI forecasts.

“Indeed, at face value, [the developments] would demand rate cuts,” Toplis admitted. Add in that banks themselves have been increasing mortgage rates without the OCR moving, bank lending constraints and a softening housing market, “one might reasonably ask why, under these conditions, we are even talking about rate increases at all.”

He gave his reasoning: Food prices remained stubbornly high, core inflation looked set to sit above headline inflation, inflation expectations would remain at or above the 2% mid-point, fiscal policy would be stimulatory, commodity prices had risen, capacity utilisation was high and the labour market continued to tighten.

What’s more, central banks around the world were shifting to tightening stances, including the US Fed, Bank of England, European Central Bank and the Bank of Canada. “If these respective central banks do start moving in the manner implied it will make it easier for the RBNZ to do likewise,” Toplis said.

“Importantly, Governor Wheeler seems to have been heavily influenced by the actions and rhetoric of the key central banks in the past. Indeed, it is this, more than anything that has created our trepidation in pushing back our expectations of the RBNZ’s expected rate track, particularly given that we believe both inflation and capacity pressures are greater in New Zealand than in Canada,” he said.

On top of all that, Toplis maintained that interest rate settings in New Zealand appeared more consistent with an economy that was under stress, rather than one growing steadily.

Eye on election, next governor

Meanwhile, with one eye on the 23 September election, and the other on the Reserve Bank’s upcoming Governorship change, Toplis argued that “forecasting the actions of the RBNZ over the next twelve months is even more fraught with danger than normal.” Graeme Wheeler will step aside in September, and interim Governor Spencer in March 2018.

“Even if the Bank’s mandate remains unchanged, we know from both past New Zealand experience and what’s happened offshore that the culture of the central bank can change and even its interpretation of the “rules” can do likewise,” Toplis said.

“At the extreme, a new Governor may even choose, with the support of the Finance Minister to adjust the Policy Targets Agreement. There is certainly significant precedence for this. And, last but not least, we do have a General Election which could conceivably deliver a new Minister of Finance with a very different view of how the RBNZ should operate.

“Our view on where the rate hike cycle begins is not that different to the market’s with June 2018 currently priced in for the first move. June, of course, is unlikely as it’s an OCR review date not an MPS. The market then has a second rate hike by November 2018 with the potential for a couple more the following year.

“We still think that, ultimately, the cash rate will need to push up to and through neutral and that when the process begins it will tend to be quicker than the market will price. We do not know exactly where neutral is these days but we do think it is substantially higher than where rates currently are. We have, for now, lopped the top off the peak in our OCR track to 3.0% from 3.75% to acknowledge the widening spread between the cash rate and lending rates but acknowledge that this spread has changed significantly in the past and can do so again.”


          The Opening Bell: Where currencies start on Friday, June 30, 2017   

By Dan Bell

The NZDUSD opens at 0.7297 (mid-rate) this morning.

The NZD has underperformed over the past 24hrs, edging lower against all its major rivals. The AUD has been the strongest performing of the G10 currencies even managing to keep pace with the rising GBP and EUR.

The GBP and the EUR have extended their move higher on expectations of tighter monetary policy, while the AUD is benefiting from rising commodity prices and end of financial year rebalancing flows.

Overnight the BoE’s Chief Economist Haldane, who is part of the BOE’s Monetary Policy Committee fuelled speculation that the BOE are on the verge of tightening when he was quoted during a BBC interview “we need to look seriously at the possibility of raising interest rates to keep the lid on those cost of living increases."

Euro-zone economic confidence increased more than forecast with the economic sentiment index rising to 111.1 in June up from 109.2 in May. The index is now sitting at its highest level since Aug 2007.

There was further good news for the Euro-zone with Germany's consumer price inflation unexpectedly rising to 1.6% in June, up from 1.5% in May and confounding economists who had expected the rate to dip to 1.4%.

The US Commerce Department’s better than expected final reading for Q1 GDP had little effect on a softening USD. The report showed gross domestic product increased by 1.4% in Q1 a 0.2% improvement from the previously reported 1.2% increase.

Global equity markets remain mixed - Dow -0.76%, S&P 500 -0.91%, FTSE -0.51%, DAX -1.83%, CAC -1.88%, Nikkei +0.45%, Shanghai +0.47%.

Gold prices have edged lower, down 0.3% at $1,245 an ounce. .WTI Crude Oil has pushed up towards $45 a barrel currently sitting at $44.93.

          The Philippines a Century Hence   
(by José Rizal Translated by Charles E. Derbyshire)

NOTE: This famous essay of Rizal entitled "Filipinas de cien años" was first published in La Solidaridad, Madrid, between September 30, 1889, and February 1, 1890

PART ONE: Following our usual custom of facing squarely the most difficult and delicate questions related to the Philippines, without weighing the consequences that our frankness may bring upon us, we shall in the present article treat of their future.

In order to read the destiny of a people, it is necessary to open the book of its past, and this, for the Philippines may be reduced in general terms to what follows.

Scarcely had they been attached to the Spanish crown than they had sustained with their blood and the efforts of their sons the wars and ambitions, and conquest of the Spanish people, and in these struggles, in that terrible crisis when a people changes its form of government, its laws, usages, customs, religion and beliefs; the Philippines was depopulated, impoverished and retarded -- caught in their metamorphosis without confidence in their past, without faith in their present and with no fond home of the years to come. The former rulers who had merely endeavored to secure the fear and submission of their subjects, habituated by them to servitude, fell like leaves from a dead tree, and the people, who had no love for them nor knew what liberty was, easily changed masters, perhaps hoping to gain something by the innovation.

Then began a new era for the Filipinos. They gradually lost their ancient traditions, their recollections, -- they forgot their writings, their songs, their poetry, their laws in order to learn by heart other doctrines, which they did not understand, other ethics, other tastes, different from those inspired in their race by their climate and their way of thinking. Then there was a falling-off, they were lowered in their own eyes, they became ashamed of what was distinctively their own, in order to admire and praise that was foreign and incomprehensible; their spirit was broken and they acquiesced.

Thus years and centuries rolled on. Religious shows, rites that caught the eye, songs, lights, images arrayed with gold, worship in a strange language, legends, miracles and sermons, hypnotized the already naturally superstitious spirits of the country but did not succeed in destroying it altogether, in spite of the whole system afterwards developed and operated with unyielding tenacity.

When the ethical abasement of the inhabitants had reached this stage, when they had become disheartened and disgusted with themselves, an effort was made to add the final stroke for reducing so many dormant wills and intellects to nothingness, in order to make of the individual a sort of toiler, a brute, a beast of burden and to develop a race without mind or heart. “Then the end sought was revealed, it was taken for granted, and the race was insulted, an effort was made to deny it every virtue, every human characteristic, and there were even writers and priests who pushed the movement still further by trying to deny to the natives of the country not only capacity for virtue but also even the tendency to vice.

Then this which they had thought would be death was sure salvation. Some dying persons are restored to health by a heroic remedy.

So great endurance reached its climax with the insults, and the lethargic spirit woke up to life. His sensitiveness, the chief trait of the native, was touched, and while he had the forbearance to suffer and die under a foreign flag, he had it not when they whom he served repaid his sacrifices with insults and jests. Then he began to study himself and to realize his misfortune. Those who had not expected this result, like all despotic masters, regarded as a wrong every complaint, every protest, and punished it with death, endeavoring thus to stifle every cry of sorrow with blood, and they made mistake after mistake.

The spirit of the people was not thereby cowed, and even though it had been awakened in only a few hearts, its flame nevertheless was surely and consumingly propagated, thanks to abuses and the stupid endeavors of certain classes to stifle noble and generous sentiments. Thus when a flame catches a garment, fear and confusion propagate it more and more, and each shake, each blow, is a blast from the bellows to fan it into life.

Undoubtedly during all this time there were not lacking generous and noble spirits among the dominant race that tired to struggle for the rights of humanity and justice, or sordid and cowardly ones among the dominated that aided the debasement of their own country. But both were exceptions and we are speaking in general terms.

Such is an outline of their past. We know their present. Now what will their future be?

Will the Philippine Islands continue to be a Spanish colony, and if so, what kind of colony? Will they become a province of Spain, with or without autonomy? And to reach this stage, what kind of sacrifices will have to be made?

Will they be separated from the mother country to live independently, to fall into the hands of other nations, or to ally themselves with neighboring powers?

It is impossible to reply to these questions, for to all of them both yes and now may be answered, according to the time desired to be covered. When there is in nature no fixed condition, how much less must there be in the life of a people, being endowed with mobility and movement! So, it is that in order to deal with those questions, it is necessary to presume an unlimited period of time, and in accordance therewith try to forecast future events.

PART TWO: What will become of the Philippines within a century? Will they continue to be a Spanish colony?

Had this question been asked three centuries ago, when at Legazpi’s death the Malayan Filipinos began to be gradually undeceived and, finding the yoke heavy, tried in vain to shake it off without any doubt whatsoever the reply would have been easy. To a spirit enthusiastic over the liberty of the country, to those unconquerable Kagayanes who nourished within themselves the spirit of Mgalats, to the descendants of the heroic Gat Pulintang and Gat Salakab of the Province of Batangas, independence was assured, it was merely a question of getting together and making a determination. But for him who, disillusioned by sad experience, saw everywhere discord and disorder, apathy and brutalization in the lower classes, discouragement and disunion in the upper, only one answer presented itself, and it was: extend his hands to the chains, bow his neck beneath the yoke and accept the future with the resignation of an invalid who watches the leaves fall and foresees a long winter amid whose snows he discerns the outlines of his grave. At the time discord justified pessimism -- but three centuries passed, the meek had become accustomed to the yoke, and each new generation, begotten in chains, was constantly better adapted to the new order of things.

Now then, are the Philippines in the same condition they were three centuries ago?

For the liberal Spaniards the ethical condition of the people remains the same, that is, the native Filipinos have not advanced; for the friars and their followers the people have been redeemed from savagery, that is, they have progressed; for many Filipinos ethics, spirit and customs have decayed, as decay all the good qualities of a people that falls into slavery that is, they have retrograded.

Laying aside these considerations, so as not to get away from our subject let us draw the brief parallel between the political situation then and the situation at present, in order to see if what was not possible at that time can be so now, or vice versa.

Let us pass over the loyalty the Filipinos may feel for Spain; let us suppose for a moment, along with Spanish writers, that there exist only motives for hatred and jealousy between the two races; let us admit the assertions flaunted by many that three centuries of domination have not awakened in the sensitive heart of the native a single spark of affection or gratitude; and we may see whether or not the Spanish cause has gained ground in the Islands.

Formerly the Spanish authority was upheld among the natives by a handful of soldiers, three to five hundred at most, many of whom were engaged in trade and were scattered about not only in the Islands but also among the neighboring nations, occupied in long wars against the Mohammedans in the south, against the British and Dutch, and ceaselessly harassed by Japanese, Chinese, or some tribes in the interior. Then communication with Mexico and Spain was slow, rare and difficult; frequent and violent the disturbances among the ruling powers in the Islands, the treasury nearly always empty, and the life of the colonists dependent upon one frail ship that handled the Chinese trade. Then the seas in those regions were infested with pirates, all enemies of the Spanish name, which was defended by an impoverished fleet, generally manned by rude adventurers, when not by foreigners and enemies, which was checked and an expedition of Gomez Perez Dasmariñas, which was checked and frustrated by the mutiny of the Chinese rowers, who killed him and thwarted all his plans and schemes. Yet in spite of so many adverse circumstances the Spanish authority had been upheld for more than three centuries and, though it has been curtailed, still continues to rule the destinies of the Philippine group.

On the other hand, the present situation seems to be gilded and rosy -- as we might say, a beautiful morning compared to the vexed and stormy night of the past. The material forces at the disposal of the Spanish sovereign have now been trebled; the fleet relatively improved: there is more organization in both civil and military affairs; communication with the sovereign country is swifter and surer; she has no enemies abroad; her possession is assured and the country dominated seems to have less spirit, less aspiration for independence, a world that is to it almost incomprehensible. Everything then at first glance presages another three centuries, at least, of peaceful domination and tranquil suzerainty.

But above the material considerations are arising others, invisible, of an ethical nature, far more powerful and transcendental.

Orientals and the Malays, in particular, are a sensitive people: delicacy of sentiment is predominant with them. Even now, in spite of contact with the Occidental nations, who have ideas different from his, we see the Malayan Filipino sacrifice everything -- liberty, ease, welfare, name for the sake of an aspiration or a conceit sometimes scientific, or of some other nature but at the least word which wounds his self-love he forgets all his sacrifices, the labor expended, to treasure in his memory and never forget the slight he thinks he has received.

So the Philippine peoples have remained faithful during three centuries, giving up their liberty and their independence, sometimes dazzled by the hope of the Paradise promised, sometimes cajoled by the friendship offered them by a noble and generous people like the Spanish, sometimes also compelled by superiority of arms of which they were ignorant and which timid spirits invested with a mysterious character, or sometimes because the invading foreigner took advantage of internecine feuds to step in as the peacemaker in discord and thus after to dominate both parties and subject them to his authority.

Spanish domination once established, was firmly maintained, thanks to the attachment of the people, to their mutual dissensions, and to the fact that the sensitive self-love of the native had not yet been wounded. Then the people saw their own countrymen in the higher ranks of the army, their general officers fighting beside the heroes of Spain and sharing their laurels, begrudged neither character, reputation nor consideration; then fidelity and attachment to Spain, love for the fatherland, made of the native encomendero and even general, as during the English invasion; then there had not yet been invented the insulting and ridiculous epithets with which recently the most laborious and painful achievements of the native leaders have been stigmatized; not then had it become the fashion to insult and slander in stereotyped phrase, in newspapers and books published with governmental and superior ecclesiastical approval, the people that paid, fought and poured out its blood for the Spanish name, nor was it considered either noble or witty to offend a whole race, which was forbidden to reply or defend itself, and if there were religious hypochondriacs who in the leisure of their cloisters dared to write against it, as did the Augustinian Gaspar de San Agustin and the Jesuit Velarde, their loathsome abortions never saw the light, and still less were they themselves rewarded with miters and raised to high offices. True it is that neither were the natives of that time such as we are now: three centuries of brutalization and obscurantism have necessarily had some influence upon us, the most beautiful work of divinity in the hands of certain artisans may finally be converted into a caricature.

The priests of that epoch, wishing to establish their domination over the people, got in touch with it and made common cause with it against the oppressive encomenderos. Naturally, the people saw in them learning and some prestige and placed its confidence in them, followed their advice, and listened to them in the darkest hours. If they wrote, they did so in defense of the rights of the native and made his cry reach even to the distant steps of the Throne. And not a few priests, both secular and regular, undertook dangerous journeys, as representatives of the country, and this, along with the strict and public residencia then required of the governing powers, from the captain-general to the most insignificant official, rather consoled and pacified the wounded spirits, satisfying, even though it were only in form, all the malcontents.

All this has passed away. The derisive laughter penetrates like mortal poison into the heart of the native who pays and suffers and it becomes more offensive the more immunity it enjoys. A common sore the general affront offered to a whole race, has wiped away the old feuds among different provinces. The people no longer have confidence in its former protectors, now its exploiters and executioners. The masks have fallen. It has been that the love and piety of the past have come to resemble the devotion of a nurse, who, unable to live elsewhere, desires the eternal infancy, eternal weakness, for the child in order to go on drawing her wages and existing at its expense, it has seen not only that she does not nourish it to make it grow but that she poisons it to stunt its growth and at the slightest protest she flies into a rage! The ancient show of justice, the holy residencia has disappeared; confusion of ideas begins to prevail; the regard shown for a governor-general, lie La Torre, becomes a crime in the government of his successor, sufficient to cause the citizen to lose his liberty and his home; if he obeys the order of one official, as in the recent matter of admitting corpses into the church, it is enough to have the obedient subjects later harassed and persecuted in every possible way; obligations and taxes increase without thereby increasing rights, privileges and liberties or assuring the few in existence; a regime of continual terror and uncertainty disturbs the minds, a regime worse than a period of disorder for the fears that the imagination conjures up are generally greater than the reality; the country is poor; the financial crisis through which it is passing is acute, and every one points out with the finger the persons who are causing the trouble, yet no one dares lay hands upon them!

True it is that the Penal Code has come like a drop of balm to such bitterness. But of what use are all the codes in the world, if by means of confidential reports, if for trifling reasons, if through anonymous traitors any honest citizen may be exiled or banished without a hearing, without a trial? Of what use is that Penal Code, of what use is life, if there is no security in the home, no faith in justice and confidence in tranquility of conscience? Of what use is all that array of terms, all that collection of articles, when the cowardly accusation of a traitor has more influence in the timorous ears of the supreme autocrat than all the cries for justice?

If this state of affairs should continue, what will be come of the Philippines within a century?

The batteries are gradually becoming charged and if the prudence of the government does not provide an outlet for the currents that are accumulating, some day the spark will be generated. This is not the place to speak of what outcome such a deplorable conflict might have, for it depends upon chance, upon the weapons and upon a thousand circumstances which man cannot foresee. But even though all the advantages should be on the government’s side and therefore the probability of success, it would be a Pyrrhic victory, and not government ought to desire such.

If those who guide the destinies of the Philippines remain obstinate, and instead of introducing reforms try to make the condition of the country retrograde; to push their severity and repression to extremes against the classes that suffer and think they are going to force the latter to venture and put into play the wretchedness of an unquiet life, filled with privation and bitterness, against the hope of securing something indefinite. What would be lost in the struggle? Almost nothing: the life of the numerous discontented classes has no such great attraction that it should be preferred to a glorious death. It may indeed be a suicidal attempt -- but then, what? Would not a bloody chasm yawn between victors and vanquished and might not the latter with time and experience become equal in strength, since they are superior in numbers to their dominators? Who disputes this? All the petty instructions that have occurred in the Philippines were the work of a few fanatics or discontented soldiers, who had to deceive and humbug the people or avail themselves of their powers over their subordinates to gain their ends. So they all failed. No insurrection had a popular character or was based on a need of the whole race or fought for human rights or justice, so it left no ineffaceable impressions, but rather when they saw that they had been duped the people bound up their wounds and applauded the overthrow of the disturbers of their peace! But what if the movement springs from the people themselves and based its causes upon their woes?

So then, if the prudence and wise reforms of our ministers do not find capable and determined interpreters among the colonial governors and faithful perpetrators among those whom the frequent perpetrators among those whom the frequent political changes send to fill such a delicate post; if met with the eternal it is out of order, preferred by the elements who see their livelihood in the backwardness of their subjects, it just claims are to go unheeded, as being of a subversive tendency; if the country is denied representation in the Cortes and an authorized voice to cry out against all kinds of abuses, which escape through the complexity of the laws; if in short, the system, prolific in results of alienating the goodwill of the natives, is to continue, pricking his apathetic mind with insults and charges of ingratitude, we can assert that in a few yeas the present state of affairs will have been modified completely -- and inevitably. There now exists a factor which was formerly lacking -- the spirit of the nation has been aroused and a common misfortune, a common debasement has united all the inhabitants of the Islands. A numerous enlightened class now exists within and without the Islands, a class created and continually augmented by the stupidity of certain governing powers, which forces the inhabitants to leave the country, to secure education abroad, and it is maintained thanks to the provocation and the system of espionage in vogue. This class, whose number is cumulatively increasing, is in constant communication with the rest of the Islands, and if today it constitutes only the brain of the country in a few years it will form the whole nervous system and manifest its existence in all its acts.

Now, statecraft has various means at its disposal for checking a people on the road to progress; the brutalization of the masses through a caste addicted to the government, aristocratic, as in the Dutch colonies, or theocratic as in the Philippines; the impoverishment of the country; the gradual extermination of the inhabitants; and fostering of feuds among the races.

Brutalization of the Malayan Filipinos has been demonstrated to be impossible. In spite of the dark horde of friars in whose hands rests the instruction of youth, which miserably wastes years and years in the colleges, issuing therefrom tired, weary and disgusted with books: in spite of the censorship which tries to close every avenue to progress; in spite of all the pupils, confessionals, books, and missals that inculcate hatred toward not only all scientific knowledge but even toward the Spanish language itself; in spite of this whole elaborate system perfected and tenaciously operated by those who wish to keep the Islands in holy ignorance; there exist writers, freethinkers, historians, philosophers, chemists, physicians, artists, and jurists. Enlightenment is spreading and the persecution it suffers quickens it. No, the divine flame of thought is inextinguishable in the Filipino people and somehow or other it will shine forth and compel recognition. It is impossible to brutalize the inhabitants of the Philippines!

May poverty arrest their development? Perhaps, but it is a very dangerous means. Experience has everywhere shown us and especially in the Philippines, that the classes which are better off have always been addicted to peace and order, because they live comparatively better and may be the losers in civil disturbances. Wealth brings with it refinement, the spirit of conservation, while poverty inspires adventurous ideas, the desire to change things and has little care for life. Machiavelli himself held this means of subjecting of a people to be perilous, observing that loss of welfare stirs up more obdurate enemies than loss of life. Moreover, when there are wealth and abundance, there is less discontent, less compliant and the government, itself wealthier, has more means for sustaining itself. On the other hand, there occurs in a poor country what becomes in a house where bread is wanting? And further, of what use to the mother country would a poor and lean colony be?

Neither is possible gradually to exterminate the inhabitants. The Philippine races, like all the Malays, do not succumb before the foreigner, like the Australians, the Polynesians and the Indians of the New World. In spite of the numerous wars the Filipinos have had to carry on, in spite of the epidemics that have periodically visited them, their number has trebled, as has that of the Malays of Java and the Moluccas. The Filipino embraces civilization and lives and thrives in every clime, in contact with every people. Rum, that poison which exterminated the natives of the Pacific islands, has no power in the Philippines, but rather, comparison of their present condition with that described by the earlier historians, makes it appear that the Filipinos have grown soberer. The petty wars with the inhabitants of the south consume only the soldiers, people who by their fidelity to the Spanish flag, far from being a menace, are surely one of its solidest supports.

Three remains the fostering of internecine feuds among the provinces.

This was formerly possible, when communication from one island to another was rare and difficult, when there were not steamers or telegraph lines, when the regiments were formed according to the various provinces, when some provinces were cajoled by awards of privileges and honor and other were protected from the strongest. But now that the privileges have disappeared, that through a spirit of distrust the regiments have been reorganized, that the inhabitants move from one island to another, communication and exchange of impressions naturally increase, and as all see themselves threatened by the same peril and wounded in the same feelings, they clasp hands and make common cause. It is true that the union is not yet wholly perfected, but to this end the measures of good government, the vexations to which the townspeople are subjected, the frequent changes of officials, the scarcity of centers of learning, forces of the youth of all the islands to come together and begin to get acquainted. The journeys to Europe contribute not a little to tighten the bonds, for abroad the inhabitants of most widely separated provinces are impressed by their patriotic feelings, from sailors even to the wealthiest merchants, and at the sight of modern liberty and the memory of the misfortunes of their country, they embrace and call one another brothers.

In short, then, the advancement and ethical progress of the Philippines are inevitable, are decreed by fate.

The Islands cannot remain in the condition they are without requiring from the sovereign country more liberty. Mutatis mutandis. For new men, a new social order.

To wish that the alleged child remain in its swaddling clothes is to risk that it may turn against the nurse and flee, tearing away the old rags that bind it.

The Philippines, then, will remain under Spanish domination, but with more law and greater liberty, or they will declare themselves independent after steeping themselves and the mother country in blood.

As no one should desire or hope for such an unfortunate rupture, which would be an evil for all and only the final argument in the most desperate predicament, let us see by what forms of peaceful evolution the Islands may remain subjected to the Spanish authority, with the very least detriment to the rights, interests and dignity of both parties.

PART THREE: If the Philippines must remain under the control of Spain, they will necessarily have to be transformed in a political sense, for the course of their history and the needs of their inhabitants so required. This we demonstrated in the preceding article.

We also said that this transformation will be violent and fatal if it proceeds from the ranks of the people, but peaceful and fruitful if it emanates from the upper classes.

Some governors have realized this truth, and impelled by their patriotism, have been trying to introduce needed reforms in order to forestall events. But notwithstanding all that have been ordered up to the present time, they have produced scanty results, for the government as well as for the country. Even those that promised only a happy issue have at times caused injury, for the simple reason that they have been based upon unstable grounds.

We said and once more we repeat, and all will ever assert, that reforms, which have a palliative character, are not only ineffectual but even prejudicial when the government is confronted with evils that must be cured radically. And were we not convinced of the honesty and rectitude of some governors, we would be tempted to say that all the partial reforms are only plasters and salves of a physician, who, not knowing how to cure the cancer, and not daring to root it out, tries in this way to alleviate the patient’s sufferings or to temporize with the cowardice of the timid and ignorant.

All the reforms of our liberal ministers were, have been, are, and will be good -- when carried out.

When we think of them, we are reminded of the dieting of Sancho Panza in this Barataria Island. He took his seat at a sumptuous and well-appointed table “covered with fruit and many varieties of food differently prepared,” but between the wretch’s mouth and each dish the physician Pedro Rezio interposed his wand, saying, “Take it away!” The dish removed, Sancho was as hungry as ever. Truth is that the despotic Pedro Rezio gave reasons, which seem to have been written by Cervantes especially for the colonial administrations. “You must not eat, Mr. Governor, except according to the usage and custom of other islands, where there are governors.” Something was found to be wrong with each dish: one was too hot, another too moist, and so on, just like our Pedro Rezio on both sides of the sea. Great good did his cook’s skill do Sancho!

In the case of our country, the reforms take the place of the dishes, the Philippines are Sancho, while the part of the quack physician is played by many persons interested in not having the dishes touched, perhaps that they may themselves get the benefit of them.

The result is that the long suffering Sancho, or the Philippines, misses his liberty, rejects all government and ends up by rebelling against his quack physician.

In this manner, so long as the Philippines have no liberty of the press, have no voice in the Cortes to make known to the government and to the nation whether or not their decrees have been duly obeyed, whether or not these benefit the country, all the able efforts of the colonial ministers will meet the fate of the dishes in Barataria Island.

The minister, then, who wants his reforms to be reforms, must begin by declaring the press in the Philippines free and by instituting Filipino delegates.

The free press in the Philippines, because their complaints rarely ever reach the Peninsula, very rarely, and if they do they are so secret, so mysterious that no newspaper dares to publish them, or if it does reproduce them, it does so tardily and badly.

A government that rules a country from a great distance is the one that has the most need for a free press more so even than the government of the home country, if it wishes to rule rightly and fitly. The government that governs in a country may even dispense with the press (if it can), because it is on the ground, because it has eyes and ears, and because it directly observes what it rules and administers. But the government that governs from afar absolutely requires that the truth and the facts reach its knowledge by every possible channel so that it may weigh and estimate them better, and this need increases when a country like the Philippines is concerned, where the inhabitants speak and complain in a language unknown to the authorities. To govern in any other way may also be called governing, but it is to govern badly. It amounts to pronouncing judgment after hearing only one of the parties; it is steering a ship without reckoning its conditions, the state of the sea, the reefs and shoals, the direction of the winds and currents. It is managing a house by endeavoring merely to give it polish and a fine appearance without watching the money chest, without looking after the servants and the members of the family.

But routine is a declivity down which many governments slide, and routine says that freedom of the press is dangerous. Let us see what History says: uprisings and revolutions have always occurred in countries tyrannized over, in countries where human thought and the human heart have been forced to remain silent.

If the great Napoleon had not tyrannized over the press, perhaps it would have warned him of the peril into which he was hurled and have made him understand that the people were weary and the earth wanted peace. Perhaps his genius, instead of being dissipated in foreign aggrandizement would have become intensive in laboring to strengthen his position and thus have assured it. Spain herself records in her history more revolutions when the press was gagged. What colonies have become independent while they had a free press and enjoyed liberty? Is it preferable to govern blindly or to govern with ample knowledge?

Someone will answer that in colonies with a free press, the prestige of the rulers, that prop of false governments, will be greatly imperiled. We answer that the prestige of the nation is not by abetting and concealing abuses, but by rebuking and punishing them. Moreover, to this prestige is applicable what Napoleon said about great men and their valets. Who endure and know all the false pretensions and petty persecutions of those sham gods, do not need a free press in order to recognize them; they have long ago lost their prestige. The free press is needed by the government, the government which still dreams of the prestige which it builds upon mined ground.

We say the same about the Filipino representatives.

What risks does the government see in them? One of three things, either that they will prove unruly, become political trimmers, or act properly.

Supposing that we should yield to the most absurd pessimism and admit the insult, great for the Philippines but still greater for Spain, that all the representatives would be separatists and that in all their contentions they would advocate separatist ideas; does not a patriotic Spanish majority exist there, is there not present there the vigilance of the governing powers to combat and oppose such intentions? And would not this be better than the discontent that ferments and expands in the secrecy of the home, in the huts and in the field? Certainly the Spanish people does not spare its blood where patriotism is concerned but would not a struggle of principles in parliament be preferable to the exchange of shot in swampy lands, three thousand leagues from home in impenetrable forests, under a burning sun or amid torrential rains? These pacific struggles of ideas, besides being a thermometer for the government, have the advantage of being cheap and glorious, because the Spanish parliament especially abounds in oratorical paladins invincible in debate. Moreover, it is said that the Filipinos are indolent and peaceful -- then what need for government fear? Hasn’t it any influence in the elections? Frankly speaking, it is a great compliment to the separatists to fear them in the midst of the Cortes of the nation.

Now then, if the real objection to the Filipino delegates, is that they smell like Igorots, which so disturbed in open Senate the doughty General Salamanca, then Don Sinibaldo de Mas, who saw the Igorots in person and wanted to live with them, can affirm that they will smell at worst like powder, and Señor Salamanca undoubtedly has no fear of that odor. And if this were all, the Filipinos, who there in their own country are accustomed to bathe every day, when they become representatives may give up such a dirty custom, at least during the legislative session so as not to offend the delicate nostrils of Salamanca with the odor of the bath.

It is useless to answer certain objections of some fine writers regarding the rather brown skins and faces with somewhat wide nostrils. Questions of taste are peculiar to each race. China, for example, which has four hundred million inhabitants and a very ancient civilization, considers all Europeans ugly and calls them “fankwai”, or red devils. Its taste has a hundred million more adherents than the Europeans. Moreover, if this is the question, we would have to admit the inferiority of the Latins, especially the Spaniards, to the Saxons, who are much whiter.

And so long as it is not asserted that the Spanish parliament is an assemblage of Adonises, Antoniuses, pretty boys and other like paragons, so long as the purpose of resorting thither is to legislate and not to philosophize or wonder through imaginary spheres, we maintain that the government ought not to pause at these obligations. Law has no skin nor reason nostrils.

So we see no serious reason why the Philippines may not have representatives. By their institution many malcontents would be silenced, and instead of blaming its troubles upon the government, as now happens, the country would bear them better, for it could at least complain and with its sons among its legislators, would in a way become responsible for their actions.

We are not sure that we serve the true interests of our country by asking for representatives. We know that the lack of enlightenment, the indolence, the egotism, of our fellow countrymen, and the boldness, the cunning and the powerful methods of those who wish their obscurantism, may convert reform into a harmful instrument. But we wish to be loyal to the government and we are pointing out to it the road that appears best to us so that its effort may not come to grief, so that discontent may disappear. If after so just, as well as necessary, a measure has been introduced, the Filipino people are so stupid and weak that they are treacherous to their own interests, then let the responsibility fall upon them, let them suffer all consequences. Every country gets the fate it deserves and the government can say that it has done its duty.

These are the two fundamental reforms, which properly interpreted and applied, will dissipate all clouds, assure affection toward Spain, and make all succeeding reforms fruitful. These are the reforms sine quibus non.

It is puerile to fear that independence may come thorough them. The free press will keep the government in touch with public opinion, and the representatives, if they are, as they ought to be, the best from among the sons of the Philippines, will be their hostages. With no cause for discontent, how then attempt to stir up the masses of the people?

Likewise inadmissible is the obligation offered by some regarding the imperfect culture of the majority of the inhabitants. Aside from the fact that it is not so imperfect as is averred, there is no plausible reason why the ignorant and the defective (whether through their own or another’s fault) should be denied representation to look after them and see that they are not abused. They are the very ones who most need it. No one ceases to be a man, no one forfeits his rights to civilization merely by being more or less uncultured, and since the Filipino is regarded as a fit citizen when he is asked to pay taxes or shed his blood to defend the fatherland why must this fitness be denied him when the question arises of granting him some right? Moreover, how is he to be held responsible for his ignorance, when it is acknowledged by all, friends and enemies that his zeal for learning is so great that even before the coming of the Spaniards every one could read and write, and that we now see the humblest families make enormous sacrifices to the extent of working as servants in order to learn Spanish? How can the country be expected to become enlightened under present conditions when we see all the decrees issued by the government in favor of education meet with Pedro Rezios who prevent execution whereof because they have in their hands what they call education? If the Filipino, then, is sufficiently intelligent to pay taxes, he must also be able to choose and retain the one who looks after him and his interests, with the product whereof he serves the government of his nation. To reason otherwise is to reason stupidly.

When the laws and the acts of officials are kept under surveillance, the word justice may cease to be a colonial jest. The thing that makes the English most respected in their possessions is their strict and speedy justice so that the inhabitants repose entire confidence in the judges. Justice is the foremost virtue of the civilized races. It subdues the barbarous nations, while injustice arouses the weakest.

Offices and trusts should be awarded by competition, publishing the work and the judgment thereon, so that there may be stimulus and that discontent may not be bred. Then, if the native does not shake off his indolence he can not complain when he sees all the offices filled by Castilas.

We presume that it will not be the Spaniard who fears to enter in this contest, for thus will he be able to prove his superiority by the superiority of intelligence. Although this is not the custom in the sovereign country, it should be practiced in the colonies, for the reason that genuine prestige should be sought by means of moral qualities, because the colonizers ought to be, or at least to seem, upright, honest and intelligent, just as a man stimulates virtues when he deals with a stranger. The offices and trusts so earned will do away with arbitrary dismissal and develop employees and officials capable and cognizant of their duties. The offices held by natives, instead of endangering the Spanish domination, will merely serve to assure it, for what interest would they have in converting the sure and stable into the uncertain and problematical? The native is, moreover, very fond of peace and prefers a humble present to a brilliant future. Let the various Filipinos still holding office speak in this matter, they are the most unshaken conservatives.

We could add other minor reforms touching commerce, agriculture, security of the individual and of property, education, and so on, but these are points with which we shall deal in other articles. For the present we are satisfied with the outlines and no one can say that we ask too much.

There will be lacking critics to accuse us of Utopianism: but what is Utopia? Utopia was a country imagined by Thomas Moore, wherein existed universal suffrage, religious toleration, almost complete abolition of the death penalty and so on. When the book was published these things were looked upon as dreams, impossibilities, that is Utopianism. Yet civilization has left the country of Utopia far behind, the human will and conscience have worked greater miracles, have abolished slavery and the death penalty for adultery -- things impossible for even Utopia itself!

The French colonies have their representatives. The question has also been raised in the English parliament of giving representation to the Crown colonies, for the others already enjoy some autonomy. The press there is also free. Only Spain, which in the sixteenth century was the model nation in civilization, lags far behind. Cuba and Puerto Rico, whose inhabitants do not number a third of those of the Philippines, and who have not made such sacrifices for Spain, have numerous representatives. The Philippines in the early days had theirs, who conferred with the King and Pope on the needs of the country. They had them in Spain’s critical moments, when she groaned under the Napoleonic yoke, and they did not take advantage of the sovereign country’s misfortunes like other colonies but tightened more firmly the bonds that united them to be the nation, giving proofs of their loyalty and they continued until many years later. What crime have the Islands committed that they are deprived of their rights?

To recapitulate: the Philippines will remain Spanish if they enter upon the life of law and civilization, if the rights of their inhabitants are respected, if the other rights due them are granted, if the liberal policy of the government is carried out without trickery or meanness, without subterfuges or false interpretations.

Otherwise, if an attempt is made to see in the Islands a lode to be exploited, a resource to satisfy ambitions, thus to relieve the sovereign country of taxes, killing the goose that lays the golden eggs, and shutting its ears to all cries of reasons the, however, great may be the loyalty of the Filipinos, it will be impossible to hinder the operations of the inexorable laws of history. Colonies established to subserve the policy and the commerce of the sovereign country, all eventually become independent said Bachelet, and before Bachelet, all the Phoenician, Carthaginian, Greek, Roman, English, Portuguese, and Spanish colonies have said it.

Close indeed are the bonds that unite us to Spain. Two peoples do not live for three centuries in continual contact, sharing the same lot, shedding their blood on the same fields, holding the same beliefs, worshipping the same God, interchanging the same ideas, but that ties are formed between them stronger than those engendered by affection. Machiavelli, the great reader of the human heart said: la natura degli huomini, e cosi obligarsi pe li beneficii che essi fanno come per quelli che essi ricevono (it is human nature to be bound as much by benefits conferred as by those received). All this, and more, is true but it is pure sentimentality, and in the arena of politics stern necessity and interests prevail. Howsoever much the Filipinos owe Spain, they can not be required to forego their redemption, to have their liberal and enlightened sons wander about in exile from their native land, the rudest aspirations stifled in its atmosphere, the peaceful inhabitants living in constant alarm, with the fortune of the two peoples dependent upon the whim of one man. Spain can not claim, nor even in the name of God himself, that six millions of people should be brutalized, exploited and oppressed, denied light and the rights inherent to a human being and then heap upon them slights and insults. There is no claim of gratitude that can excuse, there is not enough power in the world to justify the offenses against the liberty of the individual, against the sanctity of the home, against the laws, against peace and honor, offenses that are committed three daily. There is no divinity that can proclaim the sacrifice of our dearest affections, the sacrifice of the family, the sacrileges and wrongs that are committed by persons who have the name of God on their lips. No one can require an impossibility of the Filipino people. The noble Spanish people, so jealous of its rights and liberties, cannot bid the Filipinos to renounce theirs. A people that prides itself on the glories of the past cannot ask another, trained by it, to accept abjection and dishonor its own name!

We, who today are struggling by the legal and peaceful means of debate so understand it, and with our gaze fixed upon our ideals, shall not cease to plead our cause, withou t going beyond the pale of the law, but if violence first silences us or we have the misfortune to fall (which is possible for we are mortal) then we do not know what course will be taken by the numerous tendencies that will rush in to occupy the places that we leave vacant.

If what we desire is not realized. . .

In contemplating such an unfortunate eventuality, we must not turn away in horror, and so instead of closing our eyes we will face what the future may bring. For this purpose, after throwing the handful of dust due to Cerberus, let us frankly descend into the abyss and sound its terrible mysteries.

PART FOUR: History does not record in its annals any lasting domination exercised by one people over another, of different races, of diverse usages and customs, of opposite and divergent ideals.

One of the two had to yield and succumb. Either the foreigner was driven out, as happened in the case of Carthaginians, the Moors and the French in Spain, or else these autochthons had to give way and perish, as was the case with the inhabitants of the New World.

One of the longest dominations was that of the Moors in Spain, which lasted seven centuries. But, even though the conquerors lived in the country conquered, even though the Peninsula was broken up into small states, which gradually emerged like little islands in the midst of the great Saracen inundation and in spite of the chivalrous spirit, the gallantry and the religious toleration of the caliphs, they were finally driven out after bloody and stubborn conflicts, which formed the Spanish nation and created the Spain of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

The existence of a foreign body within another endowed with strength and activity is contrary to all natural and ethical laws. Science teaches us that it is either assimilated, destroys the organism, is eliminated or becomes encysted.

Encystment of a conquering people is possible, for it signifies complete isolation, absolute inertia, and debility in the conquering element. Encystment thus means the tomb of the foreign invader.

Now applying these considerations to the Philippines, we must conclude, as a deduction from all we have said, that if their population be not assimilated to the Spanish nation, if the dominators do not enter into the spirit of their inhabitants, if equitable laws and free and liberal reforms do not make each forget that they belong to different races, or if both peoples be not amalgamated to constitute one mass, socially and politically, homogeneous, that is, not harassed by opposing tendencies and antagonistic ideas and interests some day the Philippines will fatally and infallibly declare themselves independent. To this law of destiny can be opposed neither Spanish patriotism, nor the love of all Filipinos for Spain, not the doubtful future of dismemberment and intestine strife in the Islands themselves. Necessity is the most powerful divinity the world knows, and necessity is the resultant of physical forces set in operation by ethical forces.

We have said and statistics prove that it is impossible to exterminate the Filipino people. And even were it possible what interest would Spain have in the destruction of the inhabitants of a country she can not populate or cultivate, whose climate is to a certain extent disastrous to her? What good would the Philippines be without the Filipinos? Quite otherwise, under her colonial system and the transitory character of the Spanish who go to the colonies, a colony is so much the more useful and productive to her as it possesses inhabitants and wealth. Moreover, in order to destroy the six million Malays, even supposing them to be in their infancy and that they have never learned to fight and defend themselves, Spain would have to sacrifice at least a fourth of her population. This we commend to the notice of the partisans of colonial exploitation.

But nothing of this kind can happen. The menace is that when the education and liberty necessary to human existence are denied by Spain to the Filipinos, then they will seek enlightenment abroad, behind the mother country’s back or they will secure by hook or by crook some advantages in their country with the result that the opposition of purblind and paretic politicians will not only be futile but even prejudicial because it will convert motives for love and gratitude into resentment and hatred.

Hatred and resentment on one side, mistrust and anger on the other, will finally result in a violent terrible collision, especially when there exist elements interested in having disturbances, so that they may get something in the excitement, demonstrates their mighty power, foster lamentations and recriminations, or employ violent measures. It is to be expected that the government will triumph and be generally (as is the custom) severe in punishment, either to teach a stern lesson in order to vaunt its strength or even to revenge upon the vanquished the spells of excitement and terror that the danger caused it. An unavoidable concomitant of those catastrophes is the accumulation of acts of injustice committed against the innocent and peaceful inhabitants. Private reprisals, denunciation, despicable accusations, resentments, covetousness, the opportune moment for calumny, the haste and hurried procedure of the court martials, the pretext of the integrity of the fatherland and the safety of the state, which cloaks and justifies everything, even for scrupulous minds, which unfortunately are still rare and above all the panic-stricken timidity, the cowardice that battens upon the conquered -- all these things augment the severe measures and the number of the victims. The result is that a chasm of blood is then opened between the two peoples that the wounded and the afflicted, instead of becoming fewer, are increased, for to the families and friends of the guilty, who always think the punishment excessive and the judge unjust, must be added the families and friends of the innocent, who see no advantage in living and working submissively and peacefully. Note, too, that if severe measures are dangerous in a nation made up of homogeneous population, the peril is increased a hundred-fold when the government is formed a race different from the governed. In the former an injustice may still be ascribed to one man alone, to a governor actuated by personal malice, and with the death of the tyrant the victim is reconciled to the government of his nation. But in a county dominated by a foreign race, even the most just act of severity is construed as injustice and oppression, because it is ordered by a foreigner, who is unsympathetic or is an enemy of the country, and the offense hurts not only the victim but his entire race, because it is not usually regarded as personal and so the resentment naturally spreads to the whole governing race and does not die out with the offender.

Hence the great prudence and fine tact that should be exercised by colonizing countries, and the fact that government regards the colonies in general and our colonial office in particular, as training schools, contributes notably to the fulfillment of the great law that the colonies sooner or later declare themselves independent.

Such is the descent down which the peoples are precipitated. In proportion as they are bathed in blood and drenched in tears and gall, the colony, if it has any vitality, learns how to struggle and perfect itself in fighting while the mother country whose colonial life depends upon peace and the submission of the subjects, is constantly weakened and even though she makes heroic efforts, as her number is less and she has only a fictitious existence, she finally perishes. She is like the rich voluptuary accustomed to be waited upon by a crowd of servants toiling and planting for him and who on the day his slaves refuse him obedience, as he does not live by his own efforts, must die.

Reprisals, wrongs and suspicions on one part and on the other the sentiment of patriotism and liberty, which is aroused in these incessant conflicts, insurrections and uprisings, operate to generalize the movement and one of the two peoples must succumb. The struggle will be brief, for it will amount to a slavery much more cruel than death for the people and to a dishonorable loss of prestige for the dominator. One of the peoples must succumb.

Spain, from the number of her inhabitants, from the condition of her army and navy, from the distance she is situated from the Islands, from her scanty knowledge of them, and from struggling against a people whose love and goodwill she has alienated, will necessarily have to give way, if she does not wish to risk not only her other possessions and her future in Africa, but also her very independence in Europe. All this is at the cost of bloodshed, and crime, after mortal conflicts, murders, conflagrations, military executions, famine and misery.

The Spaniard is gallant and patriotic, and sacrifices everything in favorable moments, for his country’s good. He has the intrepidity of his bull. The Filipino loves his country no less and although he is quieter, more peaceful and with difficulty stirred up, when he is once aroused he does not hesitate and for him the struggle means death to one or the other combatant. He has all the meekness and all the tenacity and ferocity of his carabao. Climate affects bipeds in the same way that it does quadrupeds.

The terrible lessons and the hard teachings that these conflicts will have afforded the Filipinos will operate to improve and strengthen their ethical nature. The Spain of the fifteenth century was not the Spain of the eighth. With their bitter experience, instead of intestine conflicts of some islands against others, as is generally feared, they will extend mutual support, like shipwrecked persons when they reach an island after a fearful night of storm. Nor may it be said that we shall partake of the fate of the small American republics. They achieved their independence easily and their inhabitants are animated by a different spirit from what the Filipinos are. Besides the danger of falling again into other hands, English or German, for example, will force the Filipinos to be sensible and prudent. Absence of any great preponderance of one race over the others will free their imagination from all mad ambitions of domination, and as they tendency of countries that have been tyrannized over, when they once shake off the yoke, is to adopt the freest government, like a boy leaving school, like the beat of the pendulum or by a law of reaction, the Islands will probably declare themselves a federal republic.

If the Philippines secure their independence after heroic and stubborn conflicts, they can rest assured that neither England or Germany, nor France, and still less Holland will dare to take up what Spain has been unable to hold. Within a few years Africa will completely absorb the attention of the Europeans, and there is no sensible nation which, in order to secure a group of poor and hostile islands, will neglect the immense territory offered by the Dark Continent, untouched, undeveloped and almost undefended. England has enough colonies in the Orient and is not going to sacrifice her Indian Empire for the poor Philippine Islands -- if she had entertained such an intention she would not have restored Manila in 1763, but would have kept some point in the Philippines whence she might gradually expand. Moreover, what need has John Bull the trader to exhaust himself over the Philippines, when he is already lord of the Orient, when he has Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai? It is probable the England will look favorably upon the independence of the Philippines, for it will open their ports to her and afford greater freedom to her commerce. Furthermore, there exist in the United Kingdom tendencies and opinions to the effect that she already has too many colonies, that they are harmful, that they greatly weaken the sovereign country.

For the same reasons Germany will not care to run any risk, and because a scattering of her forces and a war in distant countries will endanger her existence on the continent. Thus we see her attitude, as much in the Pacific as in Africa, is confined to conquering easy territory that belongs to nobody. Germany avoids any foreign complications.

France has enough to do and see more of a future in Tongking and China, besides the fact that the French spirit does not shine in zeal for colonization. France loves glory, but the glory and laurels that grow on the battlefields of Europe. The echo from battlefields in the Fear East hardly satisfies her craving for renown, for it reaches her quite faintly. She has also other obligations, both internally and on the continent.

Holland is sensible and will be content to keep the Moluccas and Java. Sumatra offers her a greater future than the Philippines whose seas and coasts have a sinister omen for Dutch expeditions. Holland proceeds with great caution in Sumatra and Borneo, from fear of losing everything.

China will consider herself fortunate if she succeeds in keeping herself intact and is not dismembered or partitioned among the European powers that they are colonizing the continent of Asia.

The same is true with Japan. On the north side she has Russia, who envies and watches her, on the south England, with whom she is in accord even to her official language. She is, moreover, under such diplomatic pressure from Europe that she can not think of outside affairs until she is freed from it, which will not be an easy matter. True it is that she has an excess of population, but Korea attracts her more than the Philippines and is also easier to seize.

Perhaps the great American Republic, whose interests lie in the Pacific and who has no hand in the spoliation of Africa, may dream some day of foreign possession. This is not impossible, for the example is contagious, covetousness and ambition are among the strongest vices, and Harrison manifested something of this sort in the Samoan question. But the Panama Canal is not opened nor the territory of the States congested with inhabitants, and in case she should openly attempt it the European powers would not allow her to proceed, for they know very well that the appetite is sharpened by the first bites. North America would be quite a troublesome rival, if she should once get into the business. Furthermore, this is contrary to her traditions.

Very likely the Philippines will defend with inexpressible valor the liberty secured at the price of so much blood and sacrifice. With the new men that will spring from their soil and with the recollection of their past, they will perhaps strife to enter freely upon the wide road of progress, and all will labor together to strengthen their fatherland, both internally and externally, with the same enthusiasm, with which a youth falls again to tilling the land of his ancestors who long wasted and abandoned through the neglect of those who have withheld it from him. Then the mines will be made to give up their gold for relieving distress, iron for weapons, copper, lead, and coal. Perhaps the country will revive the maritime and mercantile life for which the islanders are fitted by their nature, ability and instincts, and once more free, like the bird that leaves its cage, like the flower that unfolds to the air, will recover the pristine virtues that are gradually dying out and will again become addicted to peace -- cheerful, happy, joyous, hospitable and daring.

These and many other things may come to pass within something like a hundred years, but the most logical prognostication, the prophecy based on the best probabilities, may err through remote and insignificant causes: An octopus that seized Mark Anthony’s ship altered the face of the world; a cross on Calvary and a just man nailed thereon changed the ethics of half the human race, and yet before Christ, how many just men wrongly perished and how many crosses were raised on that hill! The death of the just sanctified his work and made his teaching unanswerable. A sunken road at the battle of Waterloo buried all the glories of two brilliant decades, the whole napoleonic world, and freed Europe. Upon what chance accidents will the destiny of the Philippines depend?

Nevertheless, it is not well to trust to accident, for there is sometimes an imperceptible and incomprehensible logic in the workings of history. Fortunately, peoples as well as governments are subjects to it.

Therefore, we repeat and we will ever repeat, while there is time, and that is better to keep pace with the desire of a people than to give way before them; the former begets sympathy and love, the latter contempt and anger. Since it is necessary to grant six million Filipinos their rights, so that they may be in fact Spaniards, let the government grant these rights freely and spontaneously, without damaging reservations, without irritating mistrust. We shall never tire of repeating this while a ray of hope is left us, for we prefer this unpleasant task to the need of some day saying to the mother country: “Spain, we have sent our youth in serving thy interests in the interests of our country; we have looked to thee, we have expended the whole light of our intellects, all the fervor and enthusiasm of our hearts in working for the good of what was tine, to draw from them a glance of love, a liberal policy and that would assure us the peace of our native land and thy sway over loyal but unfortunate islands! Spain, thou hast remained deaf, and wrapped up in thy pride, hast pursued thy fatal course and accused us of being traitors, merely because we love our country because we tell thee the truth and hate all kinds of injustice. What dost thou wish us to tell our wretched country when it asks about the result of our efforts? Must we say to it that, since for it we have lost everything -- yo

          Weather Route   
Weather Route aims to make sure you never have to cancel another trip due to a weather surprise.

There's nothing like the uncertainty of knowing if you'll reach your destination. Instead of searching for weather forecasts city-by-city, get all the information you need all at the same time, in an easy to understand display.

* Check the current weather throughout your entire road trip and compare city forecasts side-by-side. See if there's snow in that high mountain pass, or flash flooding across that lonely desert, all at the same time.

* Get recommendations for the best time to start your trip.

* View the full route of your trip or individual legs with interactive Google Maps.

* View highway camera images for your trip from nearby traffic cameras. Look for the camera icon when viewing the map.

* Be alerted about severe weather alerts along your route.

* Use the slider to adjust the time of your trip to see the forecast up to several days ahead.

* Wind and precipitation levels inform whether it's safe for trucking, RV trips, and motorcycle excursions, as well!

* Switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius (and other unit displays) in the settings.

This app is the paid, ad-free version of Weather Route. If you'd rather have the free ad-supported version, look for it in the other apps listed under "More from developer".

Weather Glass

A charming Tabletop Weather Glass by Authentic Models. An unusual and interesting find, would you believe that this instrument accurately forecasts the weather hours in advance, just by using atmospheric pressure? The weatherglass invokes the spirit of times past when people used simple inventions to guide their daily lives, often with highly satisfying results. Suspend it from a hanger and use to plan your day. Alternatively, place it on the wall as a beautiful piece of decor. More accurate than the weather man? Definitely!

Quality Materials

Made with glass that has been hand-blown by master craftsmen, this weather glass is filled with coloured water to approximately one inch above where the elegantly shaped spout joins the glass body, and can accurately tell if rains or storms are on their way.

Early Science

By the 17th century, square-riggers carried a weatherglass next to the compass on the chart room table. Ships needed to know if they were headed into calm waters or a storm. However, they were not just used by sailers and explorers. Weather glasses were popular with the aristocracy of the day, and King George III was said to have collected them.

          Freshen Up Your Displays For The New Retail Year   

Now that we've made it one month into 2015, it's time for the new year in retail to begin. As you know, January and February can be a weird time for stores. After Christmas, customers rush in looking for sales, still caught up in the excitement of the holidays and ready to spend the money and gift cards they were gifted. But as we move into January, the enthusiasm begins to wear off. Inventory is usually low and the customer recognizes when the store is looking a big picked over. To be honest, I've always enjoyed managing a store in these post-holiday months. Yes, sales forecasts may look dismal, but after a busy holiday season, you and your staff finally have a moment to breathe. 

Usually at the beginning of a new year, we experience a natural instinct to cleanse, to clean out and reorganize our homes. Let this instinct extend into your store. The first step after the crowds die down is to just clean. Get on top of all the little things that slipped through the cracks during the busy season. Dust, refold your sweater stacks, vacuum the floor, steam product that is looking a little sad. Even if these basic tasks feel mundane, they bring a sense of freshness to your store. The customer feels this as soon as they enter your doors. 

By the time February rolls around, your usual customers are getting bored. Most likely it is still too early to buy for spring, yet everything in your store just feels like the same old stuff. Hopefully at this point you are refreshing your inventory with a new shipment, some bright new colors. But please don't stop here-- you've got to brainstorm. Do everything you can to make the "same old" product appear shiny and new! 

This can be by simply switching up how product is displayed. You know those sweaters you've had hanging on a rack since October? Try facing them out, roll up the sleeves, maybe throw a colorful scarf on top! Or those scarves folded in a stack? How about hanging them? Maybe you've displayed alpaca throws on the left side of your store since you opened, so move them to the right side! Help your customer to see something in a new way, even if they've walked by it a dozen times before! It is absolutely amazing how effective this can be! Trust me, I've seen a stack of sweaters sit through a whole season untouched, the same sweaters that when hung in a different spot in the store, managed to sell out in a weekend! It's your job to move that product. Don't give up, if something doesn't sell one way, try again the next day! Use all the extra time you have to exhaust your options. 

Also, don't underestimate the power of props! Shoppers love props! Think outside the box here. Search for some vintage finds at local antique stores and flea markets. Natural, aged textures provide a great complement to the organic, handmade nature of alpaca apparel. Those old crates hanging around in the barn would be perfect for displaying rolled up sweaters, gloves, or beanies. An old ladder or window frame begs to show off neatly folded scarves and blankets. Think about unused furniture or household objects you have sitting around, an old table or cabinet could be the perfect thing to add visual interest to that empty corner of your store.

Another great way to freshen up your store pre-spring is by breathing new life into your visuals. You have to start by inviting customers into your store. Change up your window displays, place a big bouquet of tulips on your entry table, hang a new wreath on your front door. Draw them in with something they haven't seen before! The fact that you cared to bring in some Valentine's Day decorations or little touches of springtime inspires your customer to feel like shopping. Put the same care into decorating your store that you would into decorating your home.

I hope this post gave you some inspiration to keep your store feeling fresh and new. These little things really do pay off. Change up your product displays and visuals as often as possible and you'll find your customers coming back to check in more and more often! Happy merchandising!!

          Winter mittens!   
We are supposed to be getting snow on Sunday.  Right now, the forecast is calling for "wet snow".  It has been glove and mitten temperature lately.  I have a pair of knit mitts for me, but Mouselette is lacking in the mitt department.

I think I need to get a pair cast on pronto.

I got an amazing deal on kids clothes yesterday.  There is a thrift store right next to my daughter's preschool, so I pop in frequently (too frequently, to be honest). I walked past yesterday and spotted a 50% off kids clothing sale. In I went to refill the ever-growing child's winter wardrobe (she may be petite over all, but she has monkey limbs like me, so she needs a full size above her age just to fit those long lanky legs and monkey arms of hers).  Among other things, I found a snowsuit for her for a mere $3.50!!  It has a tiny rip in the crotch, but nothing a needle and thread won't fix.  And for $3.50, I think I can deal with a tiny rip.

I also bought her a pair of winter mitts - the thermal kind.  Got them home and realized... Toooooo small!  So now, I think I need to get a pair of thrummed mitts knit up for Mouselette.  I have never actually knit thrummed mitts before.  I have plenty of awesome roving for thrums, but it is a new endeavour for me.

          ABN Amro voorziet stijging goudprijs naar $1400   

De goudprijs in euro is de laatste weken sterk gedaald, maar in dollars uitgedrukt weet het edelmetaal geen duidelijke richting te kiezen. Toch zullen de positieve factoren later dit jaar echter de overhand krijgen, zo verwacht analist Georgette Boele van de ABN Amro.

Volgens Boele, gespecialiseerd in valuta en edelmetalen, kan de goudprijs tegen het einde van dit jaar een koers van $1.300 per troy ounce bereiken. Voor het einde van volgend jaar voorziet ze zelfs een verdere stijging naar $1.400 per troy ounce.

Door de stijging van de euro lijkt het alsof goud op dit moment in de verkoop wordt gedaan, maar in dollars gemeten staat de goudprijs nog steeds bijna tien procent hoger dan begin dit jaar. Dat de goudprijs - ondanks de zwakke dollar en politieke onzekerheid in de Verenigde Staten - niet verder stijgt is volgens Boele het gevolg van de plotselinge koerswijziging van centrale banken.

Deze week suggereerde ECB-president Draghi dat hij de monetaire stimulering op korte termijn wil afbouwen, waarna ook de gouverneurs van de Bank of England en de Bank of Canada opeens hun plannen bekendmaakten om het monetaire beleid te normaliseren. Nu verschillende centrale banken een minder ruim monetair beleid aankondigen komt er meer druk op de Federal Reserve te staan om de rente later dit jaar opnieuw te verhogen.

Goudprijs gevangen in smalle bandbreedte (Bron: ABN Amro)

Goudprijs naar $1.400

Het vooruitzicht van een oplopende rente is volgens analiste Boele de reden dat de goudprijs op dit moment niet verder stijgt en binnen een smalle bandbreedte blijft bewegen. Ze voorziet daarom voor het einde van dit kwartaal een goudkoers van $1.250 per troy ounce, dicht bij de koers die op het moment van schrijven op de borden staat. Later dit jaar zal goud volgens de analiste van ABN Amro opnieuw de weg naar boven weten te vinden, omdat het effect van de zwakkere dollar dan zwaarder zal gaan wegen dan de vrees voor een snelle stijging van de rente.

Voor eind dit jaar voorziet ABN Amro zoals gezegd een goudprijs van $1.300 per troy ounce, die in 2018 verder zal oplopen tot $1.400 per troy ounce. Ook voor zilver en platina zijn de vooruitzichten volgens Boele positief, terwijl palladium op de huidige koers zal stabiliseren. De prijs van palladium is de laatste maanden al flink gestegen en bereikte eerder deze maand zelfs het hoogste niveau in 16 jaar.
