first_imgRegulators Finalize Liquidity Rule for Large Banks Basel Accords FDIC Federal Reserve OCC 2014-09-08 Seth Welborn The Federal Reserve Board, FDIC, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) announced last week they have finalized a rule with regards to the “liquidity coverage ratio” (LCR) of large financial institutions.The new rule requires affected institutions to keep high quality liquid assets on hand that the institution can easily convert into an amount of cash that is that same as or greater than the company’s cash outflow less the projected cash inflow during a 30-day stress period. The LCR is the ratio of a company’s liquid assets to its net cash outflow.Affected institutions are all financial organizations with total consolidated assets worth more than $250 billion, more than $10 billion in on-balance sheet foreign exposure, or to affected organizations’ subsidiary depository institutions that total more than $10 billion assets.Banks or financial institutions that do not meet those standards but have more than $50 billion in assets will still be affected by the final rule, but will be required to abide by a less stringent, modified LCR.Non-banks that have been designated by the Financial Stability Oversight Council for enhanced supervision will not be required to abide by the final rule; rather, enhanced prudential liquidity standards will be applied to these non-banking institutions by the Federal Reserve Board through a rule that will be subsequently issued after the company’s risk profile, capital structure, and business model have been evaluated.The final rule is nearly identical to the rule that was originally proposed with a few changes based on public comments. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision agreed to the liquidity standard that provided the basis for the final rule. The enhanced prudential liquidity standard established by the LCR is consistent with the Consumer Protection Act and section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform.The Basel Committee rule is not as stringent as the final rule in some areas, namely in the transition period for implementation; the final rule calls for a shorter such period in order to maintain improved liquidity of those financial institutions that were established after the U.S. financial crisis.All firms in the U.S. affected by the final rule are expected to be fully compliant by January 1, 2017. in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, Newscenter_img September 8, 2014 483 Views Sharelast_img read more

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Home Values Homeownership Rate Recovery Zillow 2014-11-11 Tory Barringer November 11, 2014 466 Views center_img Survey: Another Few Years Left for Recovery as Housing Faces Headwinds With home price appreciation leveling off and economic hurdles weighing on homeownership, experts expect the housing market still has at least another three years of recovery left to get back to a normal state, a new survey finds.In a quarterly survey of more than 100 real estate experts and economists, real estate data firm Zillow found 40 percent of respondents believe it will take another three to five years for the housing market to normalize, based on current home price trends and homebuyer activity.Nearly a third of panelists took a more optimistic view, predicting the market will stabilize one to two years from now, while one in five responded that housing has either already returned to normal or will within the next 12 months.When asked about headwinds facing the market right now, respondents pointed to low household formation rates, which have been stymied in part by a challenged economy. According to another recent study from Zillow, more than a third of adults living in the United States were living with at least one roommate as of 2012, up from a quarter in 2000.While those renters represent millions of potential new formations in the years to come, they remain stuck where they are as jobs and wages slowly grow.Demographic issues are also at play, Zillow says. While more millennials seem to be holding off on major commitments—including homeownership, marriage, and parenthood—a growing number of Americans nearing retirement age are also opting to stay in their homes longer, keeping the nation’s housing inventory from making any meaningful recovery.”We’ve reached a point in the recovery where the only real cure-all is time,” said Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Stan Humphries. “[T]he landscape is slowly changing, as incomes begin to grow, negative equity fades and new households start to form. These shifts won’t occur overnight, but they are happening. Patience will be a virtue over the next few years as we wait for these traditional fundamentals to more fully take hold in the market.”Zillow’s panel of experts also offered their predictions on the path of home values over the next five years. According to the company, the respondents predicted U.S. home values will end this year up an average of 4.8 percent from 2013, finishing the year at a median $176,760.Gains next year are expected to average 3.7 percent before leveling off over the following years. On average, respondents said they expect home values to exceed their pre-recession peak in February 2018 at the predicted growth rate.”The 3.7 percent average annual appreciation rate expected by the panel for 2015 represents a 20 percent drop from the rate expected for this year,” said Terry Loebs, founder of Pulsenomics, which conducts the survey for Zillow. “Although this projected decline is significant, it’s a less dramatic call compared to that made by our panelists one year ago, when they correctly anticipated a much larger change from 2013’s 7.3 percent home value appreciation rate by projecting  4.3 percent for 2014.”last_img read more

We have been playing so well all year and to have that performance tonight, it is embarrassing.”It certainly wasn’t anything to brag about.The Cardinals allowed 10 plays of 20 or more yards, including touchdowns that went for 80, 20 and 79 yards. They couldn’t stop Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson’s arm or his legs, and toward the end of the game, they struggled to contain running back Marshawn Lynch. Arizona allowed the majority of the yards (305) in the first half, but surrendered 21 of the points in the second. GLENDALE, Ariz. — It may have been an unfair request, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Arizona Cardinals needed their defense to step up in a big way Sunday night against the Seattle Seahawks.Instead, they pretty much stepped aside as the visitors posted a franchise-record 596 net yards en route to a 35-6 romp. That total is tied for the second-most yards allowed in Cardinals history, by the way.last_img read more

voters.It was a litmus test of AAP’s popularity and credibility among Delhi voters On the other hand Congress winning four seats also goes on to show that the age-old party has been making a comeback which was completely wiped out in the 2015 Delhi assembly election However for the BJP the bypoll result throws up a gloomy picture The BJP which dominates the 272-member MCD could manage only three seats which indicates that the BJP’s hold onthe civic bodies is not that foolproof after all AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal AFP Immediately after the results were announced Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal tweeted: [MCD ruled by BJP-Cong Outsider AAP wins max seats in by-election Thanks Delhi for reaffirming faith Ab MCD election mein sabhi seat jeetni hai] @ArvindKejriwal AAP is considering its victory in five wards as a “launch pad for 2017 MCD polls” “It’s a result of hard work of our volunteers and thanks to voters for having faith on us AAP emerged as biggest party It’s overwhelming We will discuss the results in detail and analyse where we fell short We could have done better" said AAP’s Delhi secretary Dilip Pandey Why AAP won only five wards According to the AAP sources the party could have done much better and gained more seats given the fact that it’s the AAP that has its government in Delhi with 67 out of 70 MLAs But the party is way behind its target “AAP could have done much better it couldn’t because at many places its old timers (volunteers) who have been working for the party since 2013 didn’t participate in bypoll campaining due to internal resentments Hadn’t it been the case AAP would have bagged at least 10 seats” a senior volunteer told Firstpost on condition of anonymity The comeback of Congress is another reason The Congress has been able to infuse trust amongst grass root level voters that it’s indispensible “Congress has bounced back in Delhi People have rejected AAP and BJP and that is why we’ve given a tough fight to AAP and won four seats Credit goes to our leader Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi” said Ajay Maken Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee Big gain for Congress For the Congress party it’s a big gain as it had no presence in any of the wards prior to the bypoll Moreover it was already in disadvantage as it failed to win even a single seat during the assembly poll “It’s fantastic It’s the strategy and planning of Ajay Maken and Congress workers reached out to the grass root level voters In 13 wards where the by-polling took place Congress had zero presence The winning of four seats shows our acceptability amongst Delhi voters and it’s also a reflection of 2017 Delhi civic polls The Congress has contested neck and neck with AAP and there’s a big jump in our vote share and margin which is a very important factor” Delhi Congress Committee chief spokesperson Sharmistha Mukherjee told Firstpost However according to Congress sources the independent candidate Rajender Singh Tanwar who has won from Bhati may join Congress “In all likelihood independent candidate Rajender Singh Tanwar who has won from Bhati may join Congress It’ll officially be announced” the source said Under this condition the Congress tally will be at par with the AAP five seats each Blow to BJP It’s a blow to the BJP as it has to satisfy with only three wards Despite having a strong presence in MCD and even in seven out of 13 wards it failed to cut much ice “The reason is that people of Delhi have seen the working of MCD under the BJP which is unsatisfactory and below average So this time voters at ward level either preferred AAP or Congress Due to this reason BJP lost its seats even where it had a strong presence” said Manoj a resident of Vikas Nagar Ahmedabad: Although the BJP scraped through to an election victory in Gujarat despite a stiff challenge posed by a resurgent Congress political observers feel that the Assembly poll outcome has sounded a "warning bell" for the BJP on a host of issues They also feel that though the election saw Congress president Rahul Gandhi emerging as "a matured leader" the opposition party lost a "golden chance" to convert people’s anger against the BJP into an electoral victory BJP workers celebrate the party’s victory in Gujarat PTI The Gujarat election was a battle of prestige for the BJP given that both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah hail from the state The two leaders personally led a high-pitched campaign to check Gandhi making inroads into the state coinciding with his elevation as the party chief Although the saffron camp managed to win 99 seats in the 182-member assembly its tally dipped from 115 in the last elections much lower than the 150-plus seats it had hoped for The BJP bagged just seven more than the magic figure of 92 while the Congress and its allies lifted 80 seats only 12 short of a simple majority According to analysts the outcome indicated that there was a tide against the BJP in Gujarat "People of Gujarat have put the BJP on notice The message is clear that it cannot take people for granted" political analyst Ghanshyam Shah told PTI Although winning the elections was perceived to be not an uphill task for the BJP this time there were several key factors at play that were complicated as compared to the previous elections The state elections were held here after three consecutive years of deficient rains that caused widespread distress among the rural populace economic slowdown due to demonetisation and GST and the anti-incumbency after 22 years of the BJP rule Lack of credible leaders having a mass appeal in the BJP after Modi’s shift to the Centre as prime minister was also a major reason that worked against the party Following the unrest by the Patidar agitation in 2015 and the Dalit community’s protest last year after the Una flogging incident the party felt that the change of guard was necessary in the state and Vijay Rupani was made the chief minister in place of Anandiben Patel in August last year more than a year before the state went to polls Political observers however feel that the Congress failed to fully use the political situation to its benefit in the elections "Despite people’s dissatisfaction the Congress could not convert the golden chance to its benefit as it lacked a credible face" Shah said The results showed that while the BJP maintained its sway over the urban voters it fared poorly in rural pockets Still many feel that to a great extent it was Modi’s charisma that saved the day for the BJP "Economic performance of the government was overshadowed in urban areas by ‘Gujarati asmita’ (pride) and charisma of Narendra Modi who alone could pull this elections for the BJP" Shah said Hari Desai another analyst said he saw the outcome as having sounded a "warning bell" for the BJP and Congress president Rahul Gandhi emerging as a "very mature leader" "This surely is a warning bell for the BJP and its performance in the state The party has been brought down to the ground They (BJP) won the election not on development but on emotional appeal" Desai said "The other thing that comes out of this election is that Congress has revived itself in Gujarat Rahul Gandhi has emerged as a very mature leader They (the BJP) can no longer ignore him" Desai said Sociologist Gaurang Jani said the Gujarat election has broken many myths on the caste system in the state "This verdict has shown that the caste system is as prevalent in Gujarat as it is in any other state of the country Earlier the possibility was that the caste preferences were overshadowed by the Hindutva influence" Jani a professor of sociology of Gujarat University said "In the rural areas the caste factor has played a decisive role as it is seen in the gains made by the Congress party While in urban areas Hinduvta has eclipsed the caste factor and the BJP has won" he said referring to the role played by three caste leaders — Hardik Patel Jignesh Mevani and Alpesh Thakor — in the polls "The results also show that urban middle class and the BJP are inseparable Ideology of the BJP is the main factor attracting the urban middle class and urban upper-middle class appeared to be the trend setters" he said Jani also feels that the minorities and women have not got enough representation in the Assembly "Just three Muslims and 13 women candidates have been elected This shows that every section is not properly represented in the elections" he said "The challenge for the BJP will be to perform and keep an edge over rivals as people have sounded out a warning" Jani said Click here for detailed coverage of Gujarat Assembly Election 2017 Written by Agencies | New York | Published: March 23 2011 4:04 pm Related News R&B star Rihanna

suffer internet chatter Reading up online I made some random predictions and accidentally got the broad thrust of the story correct Like many I wanted Manmohan Singh to remain prime minister and was hopeful that good would come of it Alas we were all wrong Suffice it to say that Singh’s second term as prime minister has cast an immense shadow on this entire election — the umbra and penumbra of years of silence The response of course has been tremendous noise — there is a “we are like that only” joke here In 2009 I wrote the following: “One thing is for sure: nobody not the politicians not the parties not the media nor (heck I’ll say it) the electorate have lived up to the grandness of the occasion” Well now just writing this is getting me depressed The empty vacuous and mind-numbingly silent nature of governance during the last five years — from recession and terrorism to corruption and nepotism — has given space to the shrillest loudest and most cynical voices in the land to vent and spout fury There was a flutter of hope that civil society and activism could show the way But imperfect persons are involved They evolve into heroes in the eyes of other women and men those heroes into gods — we are like that only The men fail and the gods are slain And so we turn to an (old) new god — the redeemer Flow like the Ganga and rid this sinful world of its depredation A man — artful effective evocative possibly dangerous and according to his detractors diabolically sly — is being presented as a hero His supposed attributes make him sound god-like His is the blowhard air that is forcefully occupying the vacuum of Indian civic conversation And that is where the blame lies No matter how this election turns out one thing is inescapably true The heirs to the Congress party claim to stay reluctantly relevant in order to remain a bulwark against the baser tendencies of Indian politics Yet the unintended consequence of their blinkered ineptitude has been the ceding of the middle ground to the very forces they say they abhor Based on the things that actually matter — poverty health education sanitation infrastructure jobs access and opportunity — it would be criminal to support this corrupt cabal So what then Will we see the coronation of a new god or a new demon How will the old ones remain relevant And is chaos really a ladder My liberal friends argue that this is a “Weimar moment” India is like the Germany of the early Thirties If we choose what they refer to as the fascist option we could be in for fifteen years of authoritarianism and who knows where that will lead My more sanguine friends argue that the Congress is so bad that a modicum of efficiency just a little bit of competence and focussed work a government where the ministers are not quarrelling all the time is all we need to turn the country around And there is enough diversity more than adequate institutions not to worry about illusory Weimar fears For them the Congress is the party of demons incompetent demons at that The alternative they argue does not have to be a god A moderately competent even flawed human will do I worry because I no longer see the Congress’s ineptitude as something unusual Its government has just been a reflection of a confused citizenry In other words we are like that only and our government is like that only And now we are looking for a magic beanstalk ladder to lead us out of the chaos of the recent past to a land where the streets will soon be paved with gold But we do not know what ogres we will meet there Ay there’s the rub Seeking a simplistic one-person panacea for India’s myriad woes and problems is again something that we opt for only It is the lazy option Our old gods and demons have been reflections of ourselves in the mirror They will not go away Too many laws and too many bad laws on the statute books a bureaucracy that makes Appleby look like a kind and efficient person and the search for simple theoretically correct solutions with no concern for how they might actually work or not work in practice — these attributes too are ours only Could it be that it actually does not matter who wins Neither will we slip into the slough of Weimar despond nor will we climb the magic beanstalk ladder We may remain stuck like that only The writer is Bangalore-based social entrepreneur express@expressindiacom For all

deal to eight years from 2021-28 (Source: File) Top News About that deal to bring the 2028 Olympics to Los Angeles: Not all is set in stone Sometime over the next five weeks leaders from LA and the US Olympic Committee have to iron out financial details about their joint marketing agreement that will figure heavily into the USOC’s ability to fund its athletes and sports organizations through those 2028 Games Sorting out the agreement is one of the biggest hurdles to clear before the IOC meets in the week of Sept 11 in Lima Peru to approve Paris to host the 2024 Olympics and Los Angeles for 2028 When a city is awarded the Olympics it also takes over its country’s domestic sponsorship program for a six-year period leading into those Games The idea is to prevent the country’s Olympic committee and the host city from selling competing sponsorships for essentially the same product In the United States where individual sponsorship deals can reach into the tens of millions that has resulted in delicate negotiations that haven’t always ended well and have hurt the chances of past bids in Chicago and New York Deals with those cities were finalized at the last minute and some International Olympic Committee members have used the uncertainty as a reason to vote against the US cities But early in the process of the 2024 bid LA and the USOC locked in their deal It was a six-year agreement in which the USOC was to receive 20 percent of the revenue worth somewhere around $380 million from the domestic deals that LA expects to negotiate With LA now in position to host in 2028 the USOC and LA will try to expand that deal to eight years from 2021-28 USOC CEO Scott Blackmun and LA chairman Casey Wasserman will talk soon about whether the 20-80 split will remain in place and what other details need to change “I’m confident that we’ll find a deal that’s good for our athletes and (national governing bodies) and also good for LA 2028” Blackmun told The Associated Press Los Angeles also has motivation to make a good deal for both sides The last thing leaders there want to do is weaken Team USA which will be competing on home turf in the Summer Games for the first time in 32 years Wasserman said the parties are close to finalizing a revised agreement “USOC Chairman Larry Probst Scott Blackmun and I have been good friends for more than 20 years and we look forward to continuing our successful partnership for the next 11 years” Wasserman said And yet this could wind up more complex than a mere rubber-stamping of an extension of the same deal At stake is something in the neighbourhood of $60 million a year which totals up to about one-third of the USOC’s typical budget over a four-year cycle The USOC puts $75 million or more each year into direct support to athletes and the governing bodies that run the sports The USOC is in a unique position because it does not receive government funding to support the athletes and thus doesn’t have an obvious way to make up any shortfall Even if the numbers work out the USOC will feel some pain Essentially its marketing department which employs about 50 people and is in charge of soliciting domestic partnerships will become a shell of itself because LA takes charge of the deal-making Some of those employees might lose jobs To give up that much control Blackmun will want to cut a fair deal for the USOC Ultimately his goal is to retain an amount that would equal 20 to 30 percent of the USOC’s overall revenues (The federation averaged about $240 million in revenues over the last two years) so the US team will have resources to remain dominant in 2028 and beyond LA is also seeking assurances given the greater financial uncertainty that exists under an 11-year preparation window instead of seven According to the 2024 and 2028 hosting contracts the $18 billion it is receiving from the International Olympic Committee is only $100 million more than it would have gotten had it won the 2024 hosting rights LA did add one provision that allows it to spend a portion of the money on youth sports programs before the Olympics and another that states all amounts will be calculated in 2028 value though the contract
