Uncertainty plagues markets ahead of US-China trade talks

Global markets parted ways yesterday as investors were more cautious about the chances of success in China-US trade talks, and looked for direction from the ECB. The overall mood remained wary, with a rally that has characterised the start of the year stuttering due to slower Chinese economic activity, a softer global outlook, Brexit issues and the US government shutdown, which shows no sign of ending soon. US investors sold shares Tuesday after the Financial Times and CNBC said Washington had rejected Beijing’s offer of preparatory discussions ahead of the next round of high-level negotiations. Yesterday saw a sliver of respite as Wall Street opened just in the black, the Dow Jones adding 1 per cent while the tech-heavy Nasdaq rose 0.6 per cent.  “We are continuing to see caution in the markets on Wednesday, with reports a day earlier regarding trade talks between the US and China only aiding that,” said Oanda analyst Craig Erlam. “Reports that preparatory talks between the US and China ahead of a meeting at the end of the month had been cancelled put a slight dampener on the mood... at a time when we’re already seeing some profit taking.” Although the White House denied the...

Teacup in a storm - Ranier Fsadni

There are storms in teacups and then there are teacups in a storm. The social media furore over halal slaughter in Malta began as the former but threatens to morph into the latter. The fuss over a piece of non-news has swelled into an over-reaction featuring public figures, where some of the already fragile values of our republic – like pluralism, consistency and informed, rational debate – are tumbling in the swirl of hot air. It all began earlier this week when an enterprising TVM journalist, Glen Falzon, interviewed Imam Mohammed al-Sadi about halal meat – that is, meat from animals slaughtered in conformity with Islamic requirements. The short answer is that, as with Jewish kosher meat, the live animal’s throat must be cut and most of the blood left to run out. Then Imam al-Sadi added something. Slaughter by cutting, carried out by a licensed Muslim (approved by the Imam), already takes place at the national abattoir. But it takes place according to the European directive that stipulates that animals must be stunned before the cut, a stipulation that both Jewish and Muslim authorities generally find objectionable. The same European law allows for exceptions to be made on...

Toxic and killing - Carol Gatt

Social norms are what we would think are normal, as in, what we accept versus what we refute, how we dress, how we behave, how we interact with the opposite gender, how we go about our day. Some of these burn us women and yet, we usually are vehemently protective of them, being blind to consequences they bring. You will not find it easy to agree with me on this, exactly because they are norms and as such, are normal. We need to think to see beyond them.  But the environment in Malta, like in other countries, is toxic and it is killing. If it touches you, you find your life impacted for good.  In my opinion, you can’t change society from the top down. You need to start with yourself, take the bottom up direction. The idea is that, once you are better, and you behave better, then those around you will be affected and will change, and those around them too. The circle will grow exponentially. One of us cannot change everything, but each of us can start changing to better. Social norms need rethinking exactly with this aim in mind. They are our tool to change the world around us. We need to change so that our laws, our courts, our politicians change, for the better. The way we...

South Australia heatwave smashes record temperatures

Temperatures in southern Australian neared 48 degrees on Thursday, shattering previous records as sizzling citizens received free beer to help weather heatwave of historic proportions. The Bureau of Meteorology reported temperatures of 47.9 Celsius (118 Fahrenheit) north of Adelaide, while inside the city temperatures reached 46.2 Celsius, a fraction above a record that had stood since 1939. Adelaide residents are used to sweltering days during the southern hemisphere summer, but even they could find very little relief from the oppressive temperatures. More than 13 towns across South Australia have smashed their own heat records, with some of the state forecast to see temperatures of 50 degrees by the end of the day.  While thousands flocked to the beach to cool off in the surf, hundreds have taken to shopping centres to stay out of the heat. At the Red Lion Hotel, publicans gave a free beer to each of their patrons while the temperature remained above 45 degrees. Around one hundred people lined up for their free drink for over one hour.  But the temperatures are also testing municipal services, with SunCity buses forced to cut their services, leaving commuters searching for...

The foreign workers phenomenon

The influx of foreign workers over the last few years helped the economy to grow at a fast rate. It seems the government and the head of State employment agency JobsPlus have no intention to question the possible negative social, economic and environmental effects of increasing dependence on foreign workers. JobsPlus executive chairman Clyde Caruana argues that foreign workers have become so ingrained into our economic system it would be unreasonable – and perhaps verging on madness – to say we can close our doors to them. While very few have insisted this country should completely bar foreign workers, many continue to wonder what studies have been made to gauge the impact on Maltese society of the influx of foreign workers, which seems to be barely controlled. Mirroring the attitude of his political masters, Mr Caruana adopts a condescending attitude when addressing people’s concern about the increasing dependence on foreign workers. However, policymakers will do well to study precedents where other small nation states like Malta were faced with a similar situation. Singapore has for long been considered as an economic model that Malta should emulate. In 2012, the Singapore...
