Why Ed Balls is a flawed economist

first_imgThursday 20 January 2011 9:07 pm Share whatsapp Why Ed Balls is a flawed economist Show Comments ▼ LIKE the cat who got hold of the cream, Ed Balls, the new shadow chancellor, could hardly conceal his delight yesterday. But in addition to being the culmination of a colourful tale of personal intrigue, Alan Johnson’s shock resignation will have an electric effect on Westminster. Out goes an amiable, reasonable but incompetent and innumerate shadow chancellor; in comes a combative, ultra-aggressive political heavyweight, a master at twisting statistics and devising economic policies to wage political war. The last residues of New Labour – that centrist, relatively pro-business, pro-wealth creation, version of social democracy – have been swept away. The Brownites now control a Labour party well ahead in the polls; the coalition is about to face a fresh onslaught. Ed Balls was the architect of Gordon Brown’s economic policies, his eminence grise, wielding massive power at the Treasury and imposing his brand of political economy onto virtually all domestic policy. Balls was as much to blame as his boss for the intellectual errors that crippled Britain’s economy. In the mid-1990s, Balls, who studied economics at Harvard, invented an entirely new framework to manage the economy and welfare state. He dazzled political journalists with his knowledge and grasp of numbers. He emphasised the need to maintain macroeconomic credibility and to pacify bond markets; it’s a shame he has forgotten these lessons today. Among Ball’s disastrous errors was his belief – straight out of the 1990s Harvard textbook – that central banks should be turned into agencies exclusively focused on targeting consumer prices, ignoring the money supply, credit and asset prices, and stripped of their traditional job of supervising banks and financial markets. The bubble delivered vast windfalls to the exchequer and house prices boosted consumer spending – but Balls, who thought stability would be maintained and boom and bust abolished thanks to his policies, had completely misunderstood how economies work.A corollary to this was Ball’s doomed tripartite system of financial regulation. He also created a set of fiscal policy rules that were meant to prevent excessive deficits and state debt – they were paper tigers, with definitions changed whenever the rules were about to be breached. Public spending surged from 1999, as did the regulatory burden. Balls also promoted off-balance sheet public sector accounting of a kind that would have made Lehman Brothers blush, with billions of debt hidden from view. An army of micro-economists was hired, placed in every government department and tasked with devising elaborate systems of incentives, tax credits, redistribution and ways of micromanaging behaviour. More people were added to the state’s payroll. In some cases, this was by hiking public sector employment; in others, by snaring millions into complex benefits; for many, work no longer paid. The outcome of all of this was to permanently cut Tory support while boosting Labour’s client state. Economics was politics; politics was economics. The way all policies were judged was redefined in Brown’s favour.Balls learnt all he knows about the relationship between chancellor and Prime Minister from the dysfunctional Blair-Brown duumvirate. That is why Ed Miliband looked so worried last night. Internecine Labour party warfare looms – and British politics is about to become much more [email protected] me on Twitter: @allisterheath by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming Nearby Scottsdale (Take a Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Ads whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Royston Wild | Tuesday, 25th August, 2020 | More on: EBOX SRB I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Stock market crash: 2 of the best UK shares I’d buy for my ISA to get rich and retire early Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Investor appetite for UK shares remains pretty patchy right now. The FTSE 100 continues to stagnate at around 6,000 points while the FTSE 250 is stuck near recent multi-week lows.It’s not out of the question that another stock market crash could happen before long. Demand for UK shares is lukewarm at best as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. It could freeze over entirely if a second Covid-19 wave turns into a tsunami and major global economies start locking down again.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…If the market crashes again I know what I’ll be doing. I’ll be breaking out the chequebook and loading up on UK shares once more. Right now there are scores of shockingly-cheap companies for investors to choose from. Another stock market crash will provide even better value for money for you and I to exploit.2 UK shares I’m looking at for my ISABuying after stock market crashes is essential if you want to supercharge your investment returns. This way you can buy quality UK shares at a bargain-basement price and then watch them soar in value as economic conditions improve and profits rise again. This is a strategy that separates those who make merely decent returns from those who get rich and retire early.You don’t need to wait for another stock market crash to get delicious value for money, though. Here are a couple of too-cheap-to-miss UK shares I’m thinking of buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA at current prices:Even classic safe-haven stocks like gold producers sold off during the 2020 stock market crash. I wouldn’t wait for another share price collapse before buying Serabi Gold, though. Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 7 times already provides stunning value for money in my book. Gold’s retreated from recent record highs above $2,060 per ounce, sure. But this is a reflection of significant profit booking after its surge from $1,530 at the start of the year. Ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty and low interest rates mean that the yellow metal should rocket again before long, pulling Serabi Gold’s share price with it.Those seeking top value from UK shares should also look at Tritax Eurobox. This small cap trades on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of just 0.8 times for the year beginning October 2020. But this is not all. Right now the property firm carries a mighty 5% dividend yield too. I fully expect profits to soar as rocketing e-commerce activity drives demand for its warehouses and logistics facilities.More great buys after the stock market crashTritax Eurobox and Serabi Gold are just a couple of the too-cheap-to-miss UK shares I’m considering buying for my ISA. The list of top-quality stocks trading too cheaply after the stock market crash is huge. And The Motley Fool’s vast library of exclusive reports can help you find even more cut-price heroes to help you get rich and retire early.

3 simple ways to pick stocks like Warren Buffett

first_img Image source: The Motley Fool If I’m planning to grow my personal wealth, I want to follow investors like Warren Buffett. You see, when I want to improve my fitness, I don’t listen to people who eat McDonald’s every day, or avoid running. So why would I follow investors who lose money year after year? If I want to pick stocks like the best, I have to listen to the best. And not just listen. But also try to put those lessons into practice.Billionaire Warren Buffett has a few simple ways to build huge wealth over time. I’ll lay out the easiest of those principles here today.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Warren Buffett: buy strong returnsBuying shares in a company effectively gives me a specific claim on that company’s future cash flow. So I want to have that obligation coming from a consistently profitable company. And one that produces a good return on investment.Warren Buffett always looks at a measurement called ROE (Return on Equity) when picking stocks. It tracks how well a company makes profits on the money that shareholders invest by buying its shares.  Any company with an ROE in double figures is considered good. Mr Buffett doesn’t just look at this quarter, or this year, but goes back five or 10 years in a row. A high ROE suggests a good return on investment.  I can work out ROE myself with a calculator by dividing a company’s annual net profit by its equity, or apps like Stockopedia can do it for me.Market shareOne of Warren Buffett’s favourite indicators is the ‘competitive moat’.Just look at the top two companies owned by the company he runs Berkshire Hathaway. They are Apple and Coca-Cola. And a recent buy is pharmaceutical giant Merck and Co.His favourite stock picks must control a large market share.That can be with high-value intellectual property in the form of brands (like the iPhone, or Coke Zero) that no-one else can legally sell. The bigger the moat, the harder it is for a competing business to take market share away.On the FTSE 100, I think examples like this include GlaxoSmithKline, which owns a lot of patents and trademarks to drugs only it can sell.Buy cheap and holdWarren Buffett’s key stock picking method is buying undervalued companies.That means picking up shares in good quality but ignored blue-chip companies whose stock price has fallen for various reasons. Then he simply sits on that investment and waits for the market to come back and accurately value it again.It’s not guaranteed to pay off, of course, as even Warren Buffett has picked some companies or sectors that have underperformed. But he’s successful more often than not.And then he gives his investments time to grow. You see, the beauty of the Warren Buffett stock-picking strategy is that it plays out over many years.So the first part of the equation is researching to find historically profitable companies that also have high revenues and are market leaders in their field.Then comes the holding part, which is actually is the hardest. I know from experience. Easy-access investing apps don’t make it particularly easy to ignore my investment portfolio once I’ve done my research and made my decision. But this is the Warren Buffett way.

I’d also happily buy this top-quality UK growth share which The Motley Fool’s analysts have identified. These two UK growth shares appear to be exceptionally cheap right now. Should I invest in them in my Stocks and Shares ISA?Printer in peril?City analysts think De La Rue’s (LSE: DLAR) annual earnings will rebound more than 300% in the financial year to March 2022. This leaves the business trading on a low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12 times. It’s plenty cheap on paper, then. But I’m still not tempted to invest my hard-earned cash in this UK share.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The company’s share price has risen 13% during the past year but I expect the money printer to resume its downtrend again soon as the use of physical cash steadily declines. This UK share has lost around 60% of its value during the past five years.Fresh consumer payments data from UK Finance illustrate De La Rue’s problems perfectly. This shows that the number of contactless payments on these shores rose 12% in 2020 to 9.6bn. Obviously contamination fears following the Covid-19 outbreak caused people to stop handling metal and paper money. But the switch to cards and contactless was rising strongly even before the pandemic. Contactless now accounts for 27% of all transactions versus just 7% four years ago.Efforts to develop its authentication business could reap large rewards in its own right in the years ahead. But I fear this won’t be enough to offset the steady erosion of the UK small-cap share’s money manufacturing arm and especially in the post-coronavirus era. Remember that woes concerning its banknote printing business prompted De La Rue to warn that it could struggle to remain in business less than two years ago.A better UK share to buyI’d much rather buy 4Imprint Group (LSE: FOUR) shares for my Stocks and Shares ISA. City analysts think annual earnings here will boom 288% in 2021, leaving the UK share trading on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) multiple of 0.2.4Imprint’s share price has rose a less-impressive 6% during the past 12 months. But I think the company — which makes products that companies emblazon their logos over (think mugs, T-shirts and pencils) — is in much better shape than De La Rue to continue rising. Latest financials in May showed that “momentum in the business has built substantially” following coronavirus-hit 2020.4Imprint’s strong performance is perhaps no surprise. History shows us that companies tend to supercharge the amount they spend on marketing activities as soon as economic conditions improve. But this isn’t the only reason why this particular UK share is thriving. It’s also grabbing market share in a highly-fragmented sector at an encouraging rate.It’s true that earnings at 4Imprint could disappoint on the back of rocketing inflation. This is because the Federal Reserve could be forced to step in and raise rates, hitting the economic rebound in the UK share’s core US marketplace. Still, at current prices, I still think the product maker could be too cheap to miss and I’d happily buy it for my shares portfolio.

Michael Hughes, has now written to the three tikanga secretaries – the Rev. Sereima Lomaloma, Charles Hemana and Elizabeth Smaal (Tikanga Pasefika, Maori and Pakeha, respectively) – about setting up the new commission.He’s requesting the secretaries to ask their respective tikanga standing committees to appoint three members to that new commission.Several speakers at the last Hermeneutic Hui had floated the idea of a theological hui on marriage, but Standing Committee opted for the commission route instead.The Ma Whea Commission will need to be briefed on all the doctrinal questions before constructing its report to next year’s General Synod, and Standing Committee probably felt that a tightly focused team of theologians from each tikanga would better serve this timeline.The new doctrinal commission will also make its findings available to the wider church for response, before supplying both its report and those responses to Standing Committee and the Ma Whea Commission by the end of this year.Archbishop David Moxon says the Standing Committee spent some time honing the resolution, which is outlined at the foot of this story. The final wording was accepted “because of its balance and care.”Key theological positionsImmediately after the Hermeneutic Hui, members of the Ma Whea Commission met with the Church Reference Group which has been appointed to support it.At that meeting the Ma Whea Commission asked the reference group to collate and summarize the key theological positions represented in all the papers delivered at the four hermeneutic hui, begining in August 2007.The reference group appointed three of its members – the Rev. Sue Patterson; the Ven. Lynda Patterson, and Karen Spoelstra – to undertake that task.Those three women will seek to answer four questions:1. What is the theological common ground? (between the liberal and conservative positions).2. What are the theological differences?3. Where might there be potential for reconciliation?4.
