Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Corliss Group PR Code 85258084198: Standard Chartered chief gives warning over UAE asset bubbles

Standard Chartered's local chief executive has warned that preventing asset bubbles will be the biggest challenge facing UAE authorities as the local economy expands.

Research from the British bank, which generates most of its income from emerging markets, said consumer leverage now represents a bigger proportion of the UAE economy than before the financial crisis and added that some measures to protect consumers would be welcome.

With the property crash and attendant financial crisis now firmly in the past, maintaining the current pace of economic growth required attention from the Government, said Jonathan Morris, the bank's chief executive for the UAE.

"The challenge the Government faces now [is] quite difference from the challenges in the recovery period," he said.

"A challenge for the Government will be managing growth and managing inflation."

Asset bubbles were likely to be the biggest concern, he added. Mr Morris said Standard Chartered did not see a bubble developing in house prices, saying the market was experiencing a "normal pricing dynamic" led by demand.

However, the bank said it was in favour of measures such as levies on property sales similar to those in Hong Kong and Singapore, where stamp duties are imposed on overseas buyers as a means of controlling speculation.

Standard Chartered said the ratio of household debt to gross domestic product increased to around 6.16 per cent last year.

That compares to a ratio of 5.8 per cent in 2008, before the Dubai property crisis.

However, interest rates are substantially lower now than then, and household debts represent a lower share of assets.

The ratio of household debt to assets has fallen for the past few years, and is around 25 per cent now, compared with 30 per cent in 2008. The IMF estimates that the UAE economy will decelerate this year to 3.1 per cent growth in real terms from 3.9 per cent in 2012.

But lending by the banking sector has accelerated significantly this year, with new credit in the first six months of 2013 higher than during the 18 months before that.

There has been significant growth in bank lending in the first half of the year, with net loans and advances growing by 4.3 per cent in the year until the end of June, according to the latest data from the Central Bank.

Consumer credit increased in June by Dh3.8 billion to Dh276.2bn, the biggest monthly jump on record and the sixth straight month of increases, which banks attributed to increased retail spending as the job market strengthens.

Banks were attempting to increase the volume of wholesale banking transactions to offset falling margins, Mr Morris added.

"The cost of funding more generally for banks has come down and loan impairments are coming down," he said.

"But margin compression is very real. We're having to run harder to stand still. That's a story we're seeing across the banks.""

Comment: Re:Oh yes, store the waste (Score 1) 74

by blindseer (#44763243) Attached to: Nuclear Trashmen Profit From Unprecedented US Reactor Shutdowns

If it's radioactive then it is fuel. It may not be high quality fuel but the decay of those radioactive elements will add to the heat output of the reactor. I recall that it's somewhere between 5% and 20% of the heat output of a contemporary nuclear reactor comes from the short and medium half life fission products. Given that nuclear reactors are already designed to contain radioactive materials for something on the order of decades it seems to make sense to put these radioactive materials into reactors. Not only is the problem contained it adds to the power output of the fuel. We do not have to bury the fission products any more. The so called "need" to bury the stuff is based on an old policy against reprocessing of fuels, which was based on an unfounded fear of diverting spent fuel towards weapons production. Policy makers, engineers, and scientists have realized that making bigger and bigger piles of radioactive junk is a real bad idea, especially if the fear is of someone getting a hold of the stuff to make weapons.

Your estimation on the cost of a nuclear reactor accident also seems to be based on old concepts and old reactor designs. The reactors at Fukishima were generation one and two designs. These required powered safety systems, enriched fuels, and are therefore prone to runaway reactions. Third and fourth generation, and even advanced second generation, reactors do not require power to shut down safely. These newer designs also do not require enriched fuel. If we put the enriched "spent" fuel from older reactors, even if diluted with the fission product "waste", into a modern reactor we'd be able to burn up that stuff and turn it into energy. New designs cannot have runaway fission like old designs. If containment is lost then fission with end. No fission means no more fission products or heat is produced. Without zirconium metals or graphite in the reactor means plain ordinary water can be dumped on the reactor without the fear of feeding or spreading a fire.

In addition I believe the damage from the failure of Fukishima is overblown. It seems to me that the desire to contain the radioactive materials from the damaged power plant is counter productive, they are putting more people at risk than they have to by this policy. I believe they should work on a method of controlled release of the materials into the ocean. The ocean is already radioactive, adding a little bit more can't hurt. Hastily constructing containment pools, and piling up soluble radioactive materials, is just asking for that crap to get released into the environment in the next earthquake, storm, or tsunami.

Maybe they need to find a few old oil tankers, fill them up with all the radioactive crap, float them out to the deepest ocean crevice that they can find, and sink them. What doesn't get diluted on the way down in an unfathomable amount of seawater will get buried in sediment.

As to the difference between drone attacks and crucifixion, it's very hard for a drone attack to deliberately kill someone in two to three days of agony, while that's the point of crucifixion.

If you burn somebody on 50% of his body, with napalm or conventional weapons, he's going to die in two or three days of agony as painful as anything else he could suffer.

Well, let's take a look at your facts. According to this story, the Taliban, if that's what this man is referring to, were supported by the U.S. to fight the Soviets. So at that time, they weren't our enemies. They did the same brutal murders (of Najibulla, for example) and the U.S. smiled and patted their heads.

Now they switched alliances and they're "our" enemies.

I don't think dividing the world into "good guys" and "bad guys," depending on whether they're committing brutal murders on our behalf or against it, is useful.

For that reason, I don't think the term "enemies" is useful either. Historians don't use that word.

So you're saying intelligence can be wrong? Fascinating. Based on my prior reading on Slashdot I understood that it couldn't be actually wrong, but simply used to lie the US into wars. You seem to be giving credence to the report that Saddam had his government lie and behave as if it was still in possession of chemical weapons to fool Iran but got more than he bargained for with a war involving the US.

You might be the most insightful when you don't intend to be.

If there are intelligence problems as you acknowledge, I wonder how much better the US would be if it were to stop intelligence surveillance of terrorists completely as some people have been suggesting. I think I've seen that picture before.
