Goldman Sees Downside Risk to Copper on China Property Weakness Copper prices will face downward pressure over the next 12 months as a slump in the property sector persists in China, the world’s biggest consumer, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. The weakness in the nation’s real-estate market, which accounts for half of China’s copper usage, has weighed on demand for industrial metals in the last year and the downturn is unlikely to end in 2015, analysts including Roger Yuan wrote in a report dated Jan. 20. The bank sees risks “highly skewed to the downside” for its 12-month price forecast of $6,000 a metric ton, according to Yuan. Copper fell to a five-year low Jan. 14 amid an oil-led rout in commodities as investors turn away from raw materials on concern that supply would exceed demand. The International Monetary Fund this week joined the World Bank in cutting global growth forecasts as lower energy prices and an improving U.S. economy fail to offset a slowdown in Europe to China. The me ...

Oil Heads for Longest Weekly Losing Streak Since 1986 Amid Glut Oil headed for the longest run of weekly declines since March 1986 as OPEC forecast weaker demand for its crude, adding to signs that a global supply glut that spurred last year’s price collapse may persist. Futures swung between gains and losses in New York and are set for an eighth weekly drop. Demand for oil from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries will average 28.8 million barrels a day, the lowest in 12 years, the group said in a report on Jan. 15. Venezuela, one of OPEC’s 12 members, is seeking to coordinate a plan to calm prices, according to President Nicolas Maduro. Oil fell almost 50 percent last year, the most since the 2008 financial crisis, as supplies swelled amid the fastest pace of U.S. production in more than three decades while OPEC resisted calls to cut output. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Societe Generale SA were among banks to reduce their price forecasts this week. “It’s a broader global poker game ...

A Growing and Unspeakable Aspect of "Higher Education" - 2010 - University of Phoenix - the Washington Post, Goldman Sachs, and the Bush Administration Defying the education establishment, Sperling expanded such programs into the for-profit University of Phoenix, now largely online and the biggest U.S. university, with almost 500,000 students. Sperling and his proteges transformed a backwater of mom-and-pop trade schools into a $30 billion industry attracting Washington Post Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. as investors. For-profit colleges enroll 12 percent of U.S. undergraduates and consume 24 percent of U.S. Pell grants for low-income students. Now those colleges, after flourishing under loosened regulations during George W. Bush’s presidency, are under attack from President Barack Obama’s administration, which wants to tighten the rules. The colleges use deceptive practices to lure homeless people, veterans and individuals who aren’t prepared for college into unsuitable courses in order to obtai ...

BANKER DEATHS NOW AT 15 AFTER Goldman Sachs MANAGING DIRECTOR IS FOUND DEAD There have been a total of 15 deaths of high level bankers in the past few months with the recent death of Nicholas Valtz, a 39-year old managing director at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in New York, due to a ‘kiteboarding accident.’ Many of these deaths are ruled as suicides, although some are quite strange. Like Richard Talley, the 57-year-old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, who somehow shot himself with a nail gun 8 times. Economist Fabian Calvo states that these deaths are due to the financial elite’s fear of an ‘Edward Snowden type’ whistleblower coming out and exposing the corruption within the banking industry, which would bring down the entire system. He states that banker deaths will likely go much higher. While the majority of articles have made it clear the police are still investigating this incident and the cause of death is yet unknown, the Daily Mail already ran with the headline, ...

Goldman Stays Gold Bear as Bullish Wagers Increase Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s Jeffrey Currie isn’t backing down from his bearish call on gold. As bullion’s 10 percent rally this year beats gains for equities, commodities and Treasuries, he’s sticking with the view that the metal will be lower by the end of December as the economy improves. Currie, who last year got ahead of the biggest gold collapse since 1980, is an undeterred bear even as hedge funds add to their bullish holdings for a fifth straight week and assets in exchange-traded products advance. Currie isn’t alone in predicting the end to a rebound that drove the best first-half performance for gold since 2010. Societe Generale SA’s Michael Haigh, who also correctly forecast 2013’s slump, said in a July 11 report that he expects the metal will drop about 6 percent by the fourth quarter. Defying the analysts, money mangers are now holding the biggest bet on a bullion rally since 2012 as prices posted the longest streak of weekly gain ...

Goldman Sachs makes amove on Ecuador and Venezuela's Gold Reserves and contracts to give the Gold back in Future contracts . If you believe that will ever happen you have rocks in your head. "Ecuador agreed to transfer more than half its gold reserves to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. for three years to give the government easier access to cash." "The central bank said it will send 466,000 ounces of gold to Goldman Sachs, worth about $580 million at current prices, and get the same amount back three years from now. In return, Ecuador will get “instruments of high security and liquidity” and expects to earn a profit of $16 million to $20 million over the term of the accord. The central bank didn’t detail additional terms of the transactions, such as any fees or financing costs paid to Goldman Sachs." "The country’s gold reserves fell by $605 million, or 55 percent, to $493 million in the week ending May 23, according to a separate report on the central bank’s website. The bank, which was stripped of it ...
Draghi Gets Ready to Go Negative as Inflation Sinks By Scott Hamilton   May 31, 2014 7:29 AM GMT-0300 Mario Draghi is preparing to lead the European Central Bank into the unknown. From negative interest rates to conditional liquidity for banks, the ECB president and his fellow policy makers have signaled all options are up for discussion when they meet on June 5. Of the 50 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News, 44 expect the ECB to become the first major central bank to take interest rates into negative territory. “We are ready to act,” ECB Vice President Vitor Constancio said yesterday. “We are not complacent about the risks from a protracted period of low inflation.” The ECB is trying to head off the threat of deflation as the economy struggles to cope with the aftermath of a debt crisis that threatened at one point to blow up the euro. Possible options include suspending the absorption of liquidity created by crisis-era bond purchases or re-purposing its offerings of unlimited cash in a way to ...
CHINESE ECONOMY UPDATE: The Finance Ministry on May 28 called for faster spending of budgeted funds, a move Bank of America Corp. analysts said will be positive for expansion. Guangdong province, the largest regional economy, will allocate 64.7 billion yuan ($10.4 billion) to support growth, according to a May 27 report on the local government’s website. The National Development and Reform Commission, China’s main economic-planning agency, is studying a fund of at least 100 billion yuan for transportation that will solicit some private investment, the state-run Economic Information Daily reported yesterday, citing an unidentified person. “We see a timely allocation of fiscal expenditure as critical to the growth recovery the government is trying to generate,” Goldman Sachs Group Inc. economists including Song Yu in Beijing said in a note yesterday. The stimulus may be starting to appear in indicators after April data showed a deepening slowdown with decelerations in industrial-output and investmen ...

India’s 10-Year Bonds Head for Biggest Monthly Gain in a Year India’s 10-year sovereign bonds headed for the biggest monthly gain in a year as global funds boosted holdings of local debt by the most since January 2012. Overseas investors bought $3.2 billion more of government and corporate notes than they sold this month through May 28, according to the latest exchange data. The purchases were spurred by optimism a new government may curb inflation and revive economic growth after elections handed the Bharatiya Janata Party the strongest mandate in 30 years. India plans to sell 160 billion rupees ($2.7 billion) of debt today, including 70 billion rupees of a new 14-year bond. The yield on the 8.83 percent securities due November 2023 slumped 22 basis points this month, the most since May 2013, to 8.61 percent as of 10:01 a.m. in Mumbai, prices from the central bank’s trading system show. It fell six basis points today. “The unprecedented optimism on India after the election results boosted bond ma ...

Goldman Shuns Bonds Pimco's Gross Favors in the 'New Normal' As Bill Gross vows to restore top performance at the world’s biggest bond fund, he’s taking a path many of his rivals shun. Gross, who manages the $230 billion Pimco Total Return Fund (PTTRX) at Pacific Investment Management Co. in Newport Beach, California, is betting five-year Treasuries, which are more sensitive to changes in the central bank rate than longer-dated bonds, will do well because markets overestimate how much the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates. Bond managers at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., BlackRock Inc. (BLK) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) say he’s wrong and the intermediate bonds he holds will suffer when the Fed lifts borrowing costs. “Once they see the whites of the eyes of full employment, they will want to normalize rates at a faster clip,” Jonathan Beinner, co-head of global fixed income at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, said in a telephone interview. Gross, 70, is betting on an economic view he calls th ...
132 Nations Want Out of the Cabal Banking System By Christina Sarich, Nation of Change – May 5, 2014 – Just in case you haven’t been keeping up with the ‘tin-foil’ hat conspiracies, increasingly proven to be true, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, is the center of a secret global economy that has bailed out American International Group Inc., huge insurance companies like AIG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Merrill Lynch & Co., J.P. Morgan,Societe Generale and Deutsche Bank AG, among others. The secret cabal’s control over international markets is becoming less of a mystery as increasing numbers of markets reveal themselves so obviously to be fixed. The cabal cheats the 99 percent with Libor interest rates, foreign exchanges, and gold, silver, and platinum price fixing. Then there’s high-frequency trading (HFT), where Wall Street banks use supercomputers to monitor incoming stock market orders, analyze their likely impact on prices, and place orders ahead of those trades to capture a bit of th ...

Gold will resume a decline as U.S. economic growth accelerates, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which reiterated a forecast for the metal to end the year at $1,050 an ounce. Bullion’s rally this year was spurred by poor U.S. data probably linked to the weather and rising tension in Ukraine, analysts led by Jeffrey Currie wrote in a report, describing the reasons as transient. With the tapering of the Federal Reserve’s bond-buying program, U.S. economic releases will return as the driving force behind lower prices, he wrote. Gold’s 12-year bull run ended in 2013 as the Fed prepared to reduce monthly bond-buying that fueled gains in asset prices while failing to stoke inflation. Prices rose 10 percent this year even as the Fed cut purchases, with Russia’s annexation of Crimea and mixed U.S. economic data boosting haven demand. Last year, Currie described gold as a “slam-dunk sell” for 2014. “It would require a significant sustained slowdown in U.S. growth for us to revisit our expectati ...
BOE's Broadbent Appointed Bean's Successor as Deputy Governor News Ben Broadbent, an external member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee, will replace Charlie Bean as deputy governor for monetary policy. Announcing the appointment today, Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said Broadbent takes up the post "at a critical time" for the central bank. Osborne also announced the appointment of International Monetary Fund official Nemat Shafik as deputy governor for markets and banking, a new position at the central bank, and Anthony Habgood as chairman of the BOE's board. Broadbent joined the bank in 2011 from Goldman Sachs Group Inc., where he was a senior European economist. He also teaches economics at the London Business School and previously worked at the U.K. Treasury. He has been appointed deputy governor for a five-year term starting July 1. Osborne didn't name a replacement for him on the MPC. "I am delighted to announce the appointment of three such highly qualified and experien ...

(Speculators See Gold Gaining With Wheat on Ukraine: Commodities) After shunning gold and wheat for most of last year, hedge fund managers are piling back in as the escalating crisis in Ukraine spurs a rebound in the prices of both commodities. Speculators have the biggest bet on a gold rally since December 2012 and turned bullish on wheat for the first time since November, government data show. Bullion last week reached a six-month high and wheat entered a bull market as Crimea prepared for a referendum. A majority in the disputed vote March 16 chose to leave Ukraine and join Russia, exit polls showed. Global equities erased this year’s gains last week as the turmoil in Ukraine escalated and the U.S. and the European Union discussed sanctions against Russia, poised to be this season’s fifth-biggest wheat exporter. Investors who rejected gold in 2013 are now buying the metal at the fastest pace since 2007, surprising bearish forecasters including Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Investors also bought more cof ...
Jeff Corzine, Son of Ex-N.J. Governor, Dies in Mexico Jeffrey Corzine, the son of Jon Corzine, the former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) who went on to be governor of New Jersey, has died in Mexico, according to spokesmen for the family and the U.S. Embassy. Steven Goldberg, a family spokesman, announced the death yesterday in a statement without disclosing the cause. Melissa Martinez, an embassy spokeswoman in Mexico City responding to questions about the younger Corzine, said a U.S. citizen died in Mexico on March 11 and referred further questions to Goldberg. “Mr. Corzine is obviously devastated by this tragic loss,” Goldberg said in the statement. “We ask that all respect his family’s privacy during this very difficult time.” Goldberg declined further comment when reached by telephone. The New York Post and the New York Daily News reported that Jeffrey Corzine committed suicide, citing people with knowledge of the situation who declined to be identified without authorization to ...

RICH GUYS UNSURE WHICH REPUBLICAN TO THROW MONEY AT - Max Abelson: "Billionaire Wilbur Ross invited Paul Ryan over for lunch. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. bankers met with Rand Paul at a fundraiser in Atlanta. Investor Rob Arnott dropped in on Ted Cruz. Wall Street Republicans have begun their White House dance less than halfway into a second Barack Obama term they tried to prevent with record donations to Mitt Romney. As investigations slow Chris Christie, whose backers have included a troop of billionaires, donors are looking for a candidate who can replace the constraints they detest with appreciation they think is due. That’s led to fervor for Jeb Bush, admiration for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and even flirtation with Tea Party senators, according to more than a dozen interviews with fund managers, bankers and investors who open wallets for politics. 'It’s kind of like dating,' said Jack Oliver, a senior adviser at Barclays Plc and a former national finance vice chairman fo ...

Morgan Stanley commods revenue fell 38 pct in 2013; Goldman flat Commodity revenues fell nearly 40 percent at Morgan Stanley and remained flat at Goldman Sachs Group Inc last year, according to filings from the two biggest Wall Street commodities players that face a changing regulatory landscape. Morgan Stanley's commodity net revenues decreased by 38 percent from 2012, a second straight annual drop, in what the bank described in its annual report to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as "challenging market-making conditions." Commodities net revenues fell 20 percent in 2012 over 2011. The dwindling revenues follow tighter restrictions on banks trading with their own money and heightened public scrutiny of their role in the natural resources supply chain. Goldman Sachs said its commodity net revenues for 2013 were "essentially unchanged" from 2012. The bank had said in 2012 it saw "significantly lower" revenues over 2011. The bank reported $902 million in revenues from market-making activities in co ...

HSBC Holdings Plc, which gets more than half of its revenue from emerging markets, says it’s time to start buying their currencies after a selloff pushed exchange rates to their lowest levels since 2009. “When others are crying, you should be buying,” David Bloom, HSBC’s London-based head of global currency strategy, said in an interview. “This is not the time to be bearish. The time to be bearish was a year ago. If you’ve missed that, you’ve missed the boat.” Bloom, whose bank started life in the 1800s financing Britain’s East Asia trade in opium, silk and tea, is setting himself up as a contrarian in a sea of pessimists. Firms from Deutsche Bank AG, the biggest foreign-exchange trader, to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. are cautious, saying emerging currencies remain vulnerable.

Dollar to Disappoint as Yield Advantage Lacking, Goldman Says The dollar will disappoint analysts expecting a broad rally in the currency versus major peers as a tapering of Federal Reserve stimulus isn’t improving the U.S.’s interest-rate advantage, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. The greenback will probably weaken against the euro and the pound over the next six months as investment flows into those economies remain strong in the face of improving U.S. growth prospects, said Thomas Stolper, chief currency strategist at Goldman, in a Feb. 7 interview in Sydney. It will remain “range bound” versus the yen, he said. Strategists surveyed by Bloomberg expect the dollar to climb at least 4 percent against Europe’s common currency and the yen by June 30, while gaining 1.3 percent versus the pound, according to the medians of the estimates compiled. “Our overall view for the dollar is pretty balanced, but that’s still an out-of-consensus call because people in the market are very focused on ...
Coffee to Soybean Wagers Climb on Brazilian Drought: Commodities Bloomberg - Luzi Ann Javier Feb 10, 2014 Hedge funds raised bullish commodity bets to a 15-week high after a drought in Brazil threatened crops from coffee to soybeans. The net-long position across 18 U.S.-traded commodities climbed 15 percent to 900,330 futures and options in the week ended Feb. 4, the biggest gain since August, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data show.

CULTS IN THE NAME OF RELIGION SEXUALLY ABUSING CHILDREN Goldman Sachs' Criminals Caught Investing In Sex Trafficking Ring! ... Goldman fund to exit company owning sex traffic site New York | Sunday, April 1, 2012 By Ilaina Jonas (Reuters) - A private equity fund run by Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) has agreed to sell its stake in the media company that runs a sex trafficking forum back to company's management, a spokeswoman said on Sunday. GS Capital Partners III on Friday signed a deal to sell its 16 percent stake in Village Voice Media, which owns the website, called Backpage.com. The fund began negotiations with Village Voice Media in March, after deciding in 2010 that it had grown "uncomfortable with the direction of the company," and Goldman's inability to influence its operations, said Andrea Raphael, a Goldman Sachs spokeswoman. The sale was first reported in a Nicholas Kristof column in The New York Times on Saturday. The fund's investment was also the subject of a Kristof column last week. Rapha ...
Europe’s Central Banks Probably Hold Rates Low: Global Economy On the heels of last week’s decision by the Federal Reserve to trim stimulus, central banks in Europe will probably maintain a steady course this week. The European Central Bank and the Bank of England will hold their key rates at record lows, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg. The Reserve Bank of Australia will also keep its benchmark rate at a record low. In the U.S., employment probably rebounded in January and the jobless rate held at a five-year low, while price increases in Brazil were the smallest in more than a year.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s solar venture and U.S.-based First Solar Inc. (FSLR) bid for projects in India for the first time, enticed by government grants. ReNew Solar Power Ltd. bid for 50 megawatts, according to a list from state-run Solar Energy Corporation of India. The company is a unit of ReNew Power Ventures Pvt., a developer backed by a $385 million investment from Goldman Sachs, Sumant Sinha, chief executive officer of ReNew Power, said by e-mail. First Solar, the world’s biggest maker of thin-film modules and a top panel supplier in India, bid for 30 megawatts. The Tempe, Arizona-based company is diversifying into building plants and selling power, betting that’s a better way to make money than competing with Chinese rivals on panel sales. The tender is the most attractive yet in a market expected to draw $11.7 billion of investment by 2017 as the cost of solar power drops to equal that of other sources, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Abe Eyes Land-Price Reflation to Spur Construction Boom Japan wants to trigger a jump in inner-city property prices by loosening building restrictions in test zones under Abenomics, a government adviser said. “Central-city property prices will likely rise when various plans are announced,” Tatsuo Hatta, 70, a member of a government council on special economic zones, said in an interview in Tokyo last week. The economic impact from the urban-planning changes will be “extremely big,” he said. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is trying to sustain an economic rebound that risks losing steam in April when a sales-tax increase will damp consumer spending. While Hatta’s comments offer some insight into the government’s plans for special economic zones, investors are still waiting for fuller details of Abe’s growth strategy in what Goldman Sachs Group Inc. calls a “critical year” for Abenomics.

Denver Real Estate Booms as Ski Slopes Trump NYC Bustle By Nadja Brandt - Dec 31, 2013 Lyndsey and Sameer Lodha had their pick of cities to call home after Sameer, a former equities trader who’s now a hand surgeon, got several job offers upon completing his residency. The couple passed on New York, where Sameer lived when he worked at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., and San Francisco because both were too expensive. They chose Denver, moving into an apartment with their 16-month-old daughter in August. “We wanted green and outdoor space but we don’t want to live in the suburbs,” said Lyndsey, 34, an anesthetist. “Denver has both. Lots of open spaces, great school options and a very vibrant city life. And it’s affordable.” An influx of young families in search of alternatives to the most-expensive U.S. coastal markets is fueling a real estate boom in Denver, where commercial-property spending and home prices have jumped to records.

Hong Kuang Commodities: China’s Choking Cities Means Job Cuts Hong Kuang Commodities Hong Kong Blog Reviews Zhang Fei sums up one of the headaches for China’s Premier Li Keqiang in his efforts to refocus the country’s economy. The 40 year-old contractor, who’d just earned 160 yuan ($26) for four hours work at a local steel mill, is leaning on his red motorcycle in grimy army fatigues and battered running shoes on Galaxy Street. That’s a 10-mile strip lined with forges, welders, tire repair and auto-painting shops, as well as restaurants, a school and a hospital. After a decade of failed efforts to cut outdated commodity capacity in China, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. says Li is getting serious, driven by the need to reduce severe pollution. Zhang and thousands like him on Galaxy Street live off servicing mills in Tangshan, the largest steel city in China that alone has almost five times as many blast furnaces as North America.

Goldman Failed Deals Yield Bausch Merger Fee Advising Both Sides By David Welch - 2013-05-31T04:01:00Z Sometimes marriages that never happen are the best kind -- at least for Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) In recent months the New York investment bank failed to put together three potential mergers in the health-care industry. Yet Goldman Sachs managed to pull a deal out of the wreckage -- Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc.’s $8.7 billion acquisition of contact-lens maker Bausch & Lomb Holdings Inc., announced this week. Goldman Sachs not only salvaged a role for itself, it landed on both sides of the deal and is likely to reap as much as $35 million in advisory fees along with the largest portion of as much as $140 million in financing fees. The bank is arranging debt financing to Montreal-based Valeant, while serving as lead adviser to Bausch & Lomb, according to the companies’ statement on May 27. “The Goldman way of thinking is, ‘Conflicts are unavoidable, so you have to manage them,’ ...

And we aren't even talking yet about the sharp consumption tax rise that is programmed for 2014.

Fed Sees Goldman, JPMorgan Overvaluing Capital Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and Morgan Stanley (MS) lagged behind peers in a key measure of capital strength used by U.S. regulators to stress- test their resiliency in a severe recession. The three firms submitted more-optimistic estimates of their capital strength and ability to avoid losses on trading and lending than Federal Reserve projections released yesterday for the 18 biggest U.S. banks. Of the three, the gap was widest for Goldman Sachs, which predicted that its Tier 1 common ratio may fall as low as 8.6 percent in a sharp economic downturn, compared with the central bank’s 5.8 percent estimate. The disparities -- including a gap of 1.3 percentage points for JPMorgan -- raise the risk that some banks may have been too aggressive while seeking Fed approval to distribute capital to investors through dividends and share repurchases. The companies must maintain Tier 1 common ratios of at least 5 percent under their capital pl ...

India’s government may curb spending growth in the budget tomorrow to pare the widest fiscal deficit in major emerging nations, seeking to boost the central bank’s scope to reduce interest rates as the economy falters. Finance Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram will stick to deficit goals set in October of 4.8 percent of gross domestic product for the year through March 2014 and 5.3 percent in 2012- 2013, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Credit Suisse Group AG said. The government has stepped up efforts to avert a credit- rating downgrade and damp inflation of almost 7 percent under policy changes since September. To avoid political repercussions from restrained expenditure, Chidambaram could allocate initial funds for a plan to give poor people cheap food, according to State Bank of India, the nation’s largest lender by assets. “Moderating the subsidy bill will help the Reserve Bank of India to lower rates, boosting private-sector borrowing,” said Taimur Baig, the director of Asia economics at Deutsc ...

A federal jury in Boston yesterday rejected the claims of Dragon’s founders Jim and Janet Baker and two other shareholders that Goldman Sachs failed to properly vet Belgium-based Lernout & Hauspie Speech Products NV. The all-stock deal in June 2000 was rendered worthless months later when the fraud at Lernout & Hauspie was exposed and the company filed for bankruptcy. The verdict relieves Goldman Sachs of responsibility for a sale that left its clients with worthless shares in a failed company. The four Dragon founders sold some Lernout & Hauspie shares for $11 million before the stock collapsed and the Bakers lost the technology they spent decades developing. “This ...

DAVOS DOOM LOSES TO MERKEL-DRAGHI AS EURO DEFIES ROUBINI-PAULSON Dr. Doom got it wrong. The parade of economists and investors led by Nouriel Roubini predicting Greece’s ejection by now from the euro zone failed to appreciate the resolve of European policy makers to protect their union and the amount of pain Greeks are willing to stomach. “People underestimated these factors,” Roubini, chairman of New York-based Roubini Global Economics LLC, said in a telephone call 12 months after predicting Greece’s exit in remarks to the 2012 World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. A Greek departure “is certainly a less likely event this year, although not a zero probability.” Joining him in questioning whether the 17-nation euro region was built to last and declaring Greece’s departure imminent, inevitable or in its interest were hedge-fund manager John Paulson, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. President Gary Cohn, Nobel laureates Paul Krugman and Joseph Stiglitz, Pacific Investment Manage ...

Private equity pours money into India primary healthcare: Reuters Private equity funds quadrupled their investment in India's primary healthcare, betting the sick and ailing will stop seeing family doctors in often cramped and dingy quarters and check into modern chains sprouting up across Asia's No.3 economy. Goldman Sachs Group Inc, Warburg Pincus LLC, Sequoia Capital and the Government of Singapore Investment Corp are among investors that pumped $520 million into India's basic healthcare industry this year, compared with $137 million in 2011, according to Thomson Reuters data. Some analysts predict investment will surpass $1 billion in 2013. Organised healthcare providers including Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd and Fortis Healthcare Ltd are betting that growing numbers of patients will be willing to pay two or three times more for better-equipped clinics - all under a model that can be replicated fast and offers investors the potential for quick returns. "The family doctor concept is slowly phasing o ...
