Kann die Sonne Trumps Mauer zu Mexiko wirklich bezahlen?

Posted by hkarner - 22. Juni 2017

Der US-Präsident will den strittigen Grenzwall mit Solarpaneelen ausstatten und den Strom verkaufen, damit sich „die Mauer selbst zahlt“. Doch die Rechnung geht nicht auf.

Washington/Wien. Die Mauer zu Mexiko. Sie war eines jener umstrittenen Wahlversprechen, die Donald Trump das Präsidentenamt beschert haben. Doch das Multimilliarden-Dollar-Projekt kommt nicht so recht in die Gänge – weil niemand da ist, der es bezahlen will. Mexiko denkt nicht daran, auf Trumps Forderungen einzugehen und die Kosten für den Grenzwall selbst zu tragen. Auch der US-Kongress gibt keine oder nur minimale Mittel für den Bau frei. Nun soll die Sonne die Rechnung für die tausend Meilen (1609 km) lange Mauer begleichen. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

MEXICO CITY – The current era of innovation, in which cutting-edge technologies are disrupting entire economic sectors at a breathtaking rate, has been called the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It is also the theme of the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting this week in Davos, Switzerland – and rightly so. In the coming years, the scope and pace of innovation will transform how we produce, distribute, and consume. To maximize the benefits, we must take steps now to prepare our economies and societies, with a focus on three key areas: education, the business environment, and connectivity.

Human capital is vital to an economy’s success, and Mexico is no exception. That is why my government is focusing so heavily on improving education at all levels. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Switzerland is first with 10-year bond at negative yield as Mexico lines up 100-year euro bond

Switzerland has become the first country to issue 10-year debt with a negative yield. Bond prices across Europe have surged this year, crushing yields for investors.

Europe’s plunging borrowing costs marked two new milestones on Wednesday, with Switzerland becoming the first country ever to issue 10-year debt that gives investors a yield under 0%, and Mexico lining up a rare deal to borrow euros that it will repay a century from now.

Bond prices across Europe have rocketed this year in response to the European Central Bank’s massive stimulus package, delivering bumper returns for existing bondholders and cheap deals for borrowers, but crushing yields for new investors. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Let’s Pursue a New Version of ‚Peak Oil‘

My CNN column urges people to move to a new mindset when it comes to „peak oil.“

Remember „peak oil“?

Five years ago, some oil market speculators became convinced that the world was nearing the limits of oil production. Sometime soon — the 2010s? the 2020s? — oil production would begin a long steady decline.

Think again. World oil production continues to rise. Leading the oil renaissance: the United States. The International Energy Agency predicts that the United States will overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia to become (again!) the world’s leading oil producer by 2017. If the agency’s estimates prove correct, the United States and Canada together will become net energy exporters by about 2030, and the U.S., which uses 20% of the world’s energy, will achieve energy self-sufficiency by the mid-2030s.

Predictions that the world would imminently „run out of oil“ have been worrying oil consumers since at least the 1920s. They always prove wrong, for reasons explained by the great oil economist M.A. Adelman after the last „oil shortage“ in the 1970s: Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
