MP: Financial crisis was due to weak competition

first_imgWednesday 30 March 2011 7:49 pm Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ KCS-content BARRIERS to entry must be cut in order to promote competition in the banking sector, former City worker Andrea Leadsom MP will say today.A lack of real competition was a key cause of the financial crisis, as market concentration hindered the free entry and exit of banks, Leadsom argues in a report for the Centre for Policy Studies.The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) should also take measures to end a situation where banks are “too big to fail,” and instead can fail and exit safely, the report says.Competition authorities have been too junior for too long, Leadsom will argue, calling for a new financial competition commission to carry out investigations.The authority would also “ensure products and services offered are themselves subject to competition,” it says.Leadsom is currently a member of the Treasury Select Committee. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Over the weekend, Berkshire Hathaway released Warren Buffett’s annual letter to shareholders. Each year, the legendary investor shares his wisdom for all to read. Here are two points from the latest letter which I found interesting as a UK investor.Finding value in the current marketWhat struck me most about the letter is how quiet Buffett was about his activities over the past year. He spoke less about looking for major acquisitions than he has done in recent years. But he also didn’t talk much about opening new holdings in listed companies. Indeed, the share purchase he talked most about was one in his own company.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…So, Buffett appears to feel that Berkshire Hathaway is undervalued by the stock market. But he doesn’t seem to feel that there is much value in the sorts of companies he likes in the wider market. However, I did notice some changes in Berkshire’s list of largest shareholdings. For example, it now contains pharma names such as Merck and AbbVie. That suggests that over the past year, Buffett has seen opportunity in the pharma sector. Drug patents and distribution networks form the sort of economic moat Buffett likes in a business.Shares in British pharma GSK continue to trade close to their lowest price for years. GSK has signalled a coming dividend reduction, and the market is nervous about the company’s drugs pipeline. But Buffett’s growing position in pharma made me wonder if shares like GSK might currently offer significant value. Buffett didn’t mention GSK, but his renewed enthusiasm for pharma blue chips has put GSK on my watchlist again.Warren Buffett’s annual letter on share buybacksA lot of discussion in Warren Buffett’s annual letter concerned share buybacks. That is where a company buys its own shares and cancels them. By reducing the total number of shares in circulation that way, the company effectively increases the proportion of the company owned by each share. As Buffett said, “The process offers a simple way for investors to own an ever-expanding portion of exceptional businesses”.The numbers can look small by share, but the bigger picture shows the potential significance. For example, due to an Apple buyback, Berkshire’s stake in Apple actually grew in recent years even though it sold millions of Apple shares.Buybacks elicit mixed reactions. Buffett’s annual letter set out how they effectively increase one’s stake in a company. But some investors would prefer a company to put the money to use to grow a business or pay a dividend, rather than buying their own shares. This is a question I am considering when looking at bank shares. Last year when dividend payments were restricted by the UK’s banking regulator, so were buybacks. But buybacks are now allowed again.My holding in Standard Chartered is under water. In its recent results, the emerging markets bank announced a $254m buyback. Does that signal that it doesn’t see better opportunities to deploy that cash in its growth markets? Buffett sees some buybacks as creating value. But they also provide an investor with a moment to consider why a company thinks a buyback is the best use of the money involved. For Standard Chartered, I regard it as negative that they can’t deploy the $254m more profitably in growing the business.

Aniversario de su cámara el 27 de junio. Mientras los miembros de la Cámara de Obispos se reunían a puertas cerradas en la catedral episcopal de San Marcos a pocas cuadras de distancia para elegir al nuevo obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal, miembros de la primera cámara de la Convención General aprovecharon el tiempo, al margen del debate legislativo, para celebrar su historia y honrar a varios de sus líderes anteriores.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la cámara, proporcionó el contexto histórico para la celebración.“La primera sesión de la Convención General se celebró en 1785 y consistió solamente de la Cámara de Diputados”, dijo ella. “Adoptó un cláusula constitucional por la que establecía una Cámara de Obispos separada, la cual se incorporó a la convención en su segunda sesión de 1789. De manera que la Cámara de Diputados es la más antigua de las dos cámaras de la Convención General por cuatro años.“Es difícil expresar cuán revolucionaria fue la primera Convención General, celebrada a raíz de la Revolución Americana, ciertamente lo fue”, dijo ella. “Es en ese espíritu, el espíritu de innovación, responsabilidad compartida y toma de decisiones y celebración de nuestra historia, que hemos invitado a nuestros previos líderes a que se unan a nosotros esta mañana para nuestra fiesta”.Jennings presentó medallas de la Cámara de Diputados a varios ex líderes de la cámara en persona e in absentia. Los festejantes vieron dos vídeos, en uno de los cuales aparecía el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados Byron Rushing, diputado de Massachusetts, entrevistando a Charles Willie, ex vicepresidente de la Cámara. Los diputados respondieron con una ovación de pie, y Jennings le presentó a Willie la primera medalla.“El Dr. Willie es un pionero educador, el primer profesor afroamericano de la Universidad de Syracuse y funcionario público que trabajó con el presidente John F. Kennedy y el presidente Jimmy Carter, y un líder de la desegregación [racial]”, dijo Jennings. Como vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados, predicó en 1974 en la ordenación de “las once de Filadelfia”, las primeras mujeres ordenadas al sacerdocio en la Iglesia Episcopal. “Cuando los obispos rehusaron ratificar esa ordenación y darles iguales derechos a las mujeres, él renunció a su cargo en protesta. Dr. Willie, no lo hemos olvidado”.Jennings también honró a los ex presidentes de la Cámara de Diputados Bonnie Anderson, Rdo. George Werner, el Muy Rdo. David Collins y el obispo Brian Prior, y los ex vicepresidentes , Muy Rdo. Scott Kirby y Vincent Curry.Luego de las presentaciones de las medallas, los diputados tuvieron la oportunidad de posar con imágenes de cartón de famosos líderes de la Cámara del pasado: el obispo William White; la presidente de la Cámara Pamela Chinnis; el magistrado del Tribunal Supremo Thurgood Marshall y Charlie Crump, que sirvió 17 períodos como diputado de la Diócesis de Tennessee Occidental.“Diecisiete convenciones generales. Simplemente piensen en eso”, dijo su ex canciller, el diputado C. Bradford Foster III. Foster dijo que él solía decirle a la gente: ‘¿Qué servicio le presto a Charlie Crump?

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Detroit, Michigan] Pidiendo “un amplio ministerio para Estados Unidos”, John Danforth, ex senador republicano por Misurí, llamó a la Iglesia Episcopal el 16 de septiembre a combinar sus voces profética y pastoral en “un ministerio de recuperación para una nación que necesita recuperarse”.Danforth, sacerdote episcopal, abogado y autor, que fue miembro del Senado de EE.UU. de 1976 a 1995, le dijo a la Cámara de Obispos que “este viejo político sabe que Estados Unidos nos necesita; este devoto episcopal cree que Jesús nos llama” a actuar audazmente en el presente clima político y cívico.Los episcopales “deberían de ser evangelistas para todos los estadounidenses, especialmente para los estadounidenses más idealistas, los jóvenes que quieren cambiar el mundo. Deberíamos de ser las voces que les llaman a hacer exactamente eso”, dijo él.El llamado a los episcopales a llevan a cabo este ministerio puede verse como una oportunidad creada por las actuales circunstancias en Estados Unidos, o como el deber patriótico de los ciudadanos, o como un llamado de Dios, o como las tres cosas, afirmó Danforth.El ex senador y embajador ante las Naciones Unidas lamentó lo que ve como la tendencia de los políticos a recurrir al miedo de la gente y a capitalizar la tendencia de la sociedad de valorar el interés personal por encima del bien común. Danforth arguyó que Estados Unidos ha perdido de vista el compromiso de sus fundadores con lo que ellos llamaron “virtud”, que el definió como poner el bien común por encima del interés personal. La Iglesia Episcopal debe llamar a la gente a recobrar esa virtud porque al parecer nadie más lo hace, añadió.“El modelo para nosotros es la cruz, que es lo opuesto del egocentrismo”, subrayó Danforth.Si Jesús nos llama a amar a nuestros enemigos, dijo él, entonces deberíamos por seguro amar a las personas con ideas opuestas [a las nuestras]”. “Un adversario político no es un enemigo, no en este país”, dijo él, añadiendo que el odio es lo que está perturbando la política actual.El ex senador John Danforth (R-Misurí), que es sacerdote episcopal, al centro, habla con el obispo de Chicago Jeffrey D. Lee, a la izquierda, y con el obispo de Misurí Wayne Smith antes de la presentación de Danforth, el 16 de septiembre, ante la Cámara de Obispos. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Él le presentó a los obispos un triple plan para lo que, según él, debía ser un ministerio de reconciliación. En primer lugar, la Iglesia debe adoptar y anunciar un mensaje claro acerca de “lo que precisamente nos proponemos hacer” y “crear una declaración breve y clara de lo que hemos de hacer”. En segundo lugar, la Iglesia debe crear y procurar tácticas para poder implementar el mensaje, porque “tenemos que ser más que una consigna”. En tercer lugar, “nuestro Obispo Primado nos brinda una oportunidad única de hablar más allá de nuestros muros” y debe facultársele a hacerlo.“Él es un talento especial y no debemos enterrar este talento”, dijo Danforth. “No he conocido a nadie en la Iglesia Episcopal que esté más preparado para predicar el evangelio al mundo que nuestro Obispo Primado”.Mientras los obispos empezaban a aplaudir, Danforth añadió: Hagámoslo el rostro público de la Iglesia. Cada día que [él] pasa en la oficina sería mejor que lo invirtiera en el camino. Debemos liberarlo de responsabilidades administrativas y ‘eclesiásticas’ y encontrar medios de presentarlo ante el gran público”.Danforth reconoció que los episcopales no están de acuerdo sobre cuándo la Iglesia debe alzar su voz profética y cuando debe usar su voz pastoral.Puso el ejemplo de un grupo de clérigos que se enfrentó con agentes de la policía exigiéndoles que se arrepintieran públicamente luego de la muerte violenta de Michael Brown en Ferguson, Misurí. Esa exigencia puede haber parecido profética, dijo él, pero prejuzgaba los hechos y asumía que esos agentes estaban necesitados de arrepentimiento. Un enfoque pastoral habría supuesto que los agentes eran buenas personas y habría apelado a su bondad, explicó él.La obispa de la Diócesis de Washington Mariann Budde, a la izquierda; la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Rda. Gay Clark Jennings; y la Rda. Kim Jackson, capellana del Centro Episcopal “Absalom Jones” de Atlanta, Georgia, discuten sus respuestas a la presentación del ex senador John Danforth ante la Cámara de Obispos el 16 de septiembre. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.La obispa de la Diócesis de Washington Mariann Budde; la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Rda. Gay Clark Jennings; y la Rda. Kim Jackson, capellana del Centro Episcopal “Absalom Jones” de Atlanta, Georgia, formaron un panel para responder a los comentarios de Danforth.Budde se mostró de acuerdo en que la gente está anhelosa de la voz profética. Añadió que muchos, si no la mayoría, de esas personas viven en las márgenes de la sociedad, no en el centro privilegiado. Agregó que ella lucha por discernir cuando se necesita la voz profética, y cuando es adecuada la voz pastoral. “Yo sí sé que la voz profética es usualmente lo que nos consigue las monedas, porque nadie renuncia al privilegio cuando se le pide”, dijo. “Usualmente ha de exigirse, y ha de exigirse de tal manera que al principio siempre resulta ofensivo”.Jackson convino en ello, diciendo que muchas veces “el bien común no ha incluido a muchísima gente”. En consecuencia, dijo, ella ve gran parte de su ministerio abogando en la Legislatura de Georgia y en otras partes, porque, como joven seminarista y sacerdote, se sintió inspirada y recibió un ejemplo de defensa social en la obra de la Iglesia. Y aprendió que esa defensa social tiene que ver con las relaciones.“Creo que eso es lo que hacemos como Iglesia”, añadió. Resolvemos cómo hablarles a las personas que son diferentes a nosotros, cómo transigir, pero también cómo aunar esfuerzos aunque podamos encontrarnos en campos diferentes”.Jennings dijo que la presencia de la Iglesia Episcopal en 17 países significa que el llamado de Danforth podría vivirse en muchos sistemas políticos distintos.Ella también replicó una de las sugerencias del senador de que la Iglesia dedica demasiado tiempo a la aprobación de resoluciones que según él no tienen mayor importancia al final. “Podemos ayudar a cambiar el tono [del debate político] y también podemos abogar”, dijo ella.“Probablemente a veces nos metemos en asuntos que tal vez sería mejor que se los dejáramos a otros, pero cuando elegimos ciertas posturas de defensa [o promoción] social, mi experiencia ha sido que hemos podido cumplir nuestro pacto bautismal de buscar y servir a Cristo en todas las personas y de respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano”, afirmó Jennings.La Cámara de Obispos está reunida en el Hotel Westin Book Cadillac de la zona céntrica de Detroit.

This striking contemporary design goes above and beyond the standardized and canonical models of today’s usual housing solutions.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoProject gallerySee allShow lessCholula Student Housing / BNKR ArquitecturaArticlesRe-Thinking Shanghai Proposal / Vinícius Philot, Fabiano Ravaglia and Gibran DuarteArticles Sharecenter_img Architects: Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/244369/paramos-house-atelier-nuno-lacerda-lopes Clipboard Area:  783 m² Photographs Paramos House / Atelier Nuno Lacerda LopesSave this projectSaveParamos House / Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes Portugal “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAtelier Nuno Lacerda LopesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesEspinhoPortugalPublished on June 18, 2012Cite: “Paramos House / Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes” 18 Jun 2012.

Lv-Z House arises from the request of the client to develop a home for sale. The house needed to be simple but without being generic. Thus, taking advantage of the property in a corner plot of 170 m2, the design scheme was a Z-shape, which allowed for a garden of 42 m2 and 2 m2 of frontal setback. The rest of the program is divided into ground floor: living-dining room, kitchen, bathroom, service area and 2 car garage, and on the upper floor: 3 bedrooms and a living room, for a total of 180 m2. Save this picture!© Patrick López JaimesThe openings and opaque areas of the house respond to privacy and light. Therefore, the southeast facade is completely closed to avoid direct sunlight and in turn close the view of the main boulevard. The opposite facade serves as a service corridor in addition to leaving the building separated from the adjoining house. This way, the other two facades contain the openings, windows, one with smaller horizontal elements overlooking the side street and the other facade with continuous windows overlooking the garden.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessExhibition: Beyond the SupersquareEventreSITE 2014: Cities and Landscapes of the New EconomyEvent Share Mexico “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/478002/lv-z-house-nonwarp Clipboard CopyAbout this officeNonWarpOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPueblaMexicoPublished on February 19, 2014Cite: “Lv-Z House / NonWarp” [Casa Lv-Z / NonWarp] 19 Feb 2014.

B14 / Studio Granda

first_imgCopyResidential Architecture•Iceland “COPY” Architects: Studio Granda Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Projects Products used in this ProjectHome AppliancesGIRAHome station video Plus – Door communicationHome AppliancesGIRAGira home station – Door communicationSwitchesGIRAGira E2 – SwitchesSave this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonText description provided by the architects. B14 is a villa on the southern periphery of a mature neigbourhood. It borders a lava field and has long views to the Bláfjöll mountain ridge. Built on the site of the client’s previous house the foundation pad was garnered from the crushed concrete of the former dwelling. All other materials were sorted during the demolition process and recycled. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonThe site is trapezoidal in form, narrow on the north side and wide on the south. This simple geometry was the generator of the folded, fan-like roof that was to become so important for the design. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonWithin the house the smaller, intimate spaces such as bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry room, are located towards the north beneath a series of pitched roofs. The family and work spaces are in the heart of the building and along the south face, under a gently rippling roof, are the living, dining and kitchen areas with open fireplaces at each end.Parallel to these spaces is the sky lit garage and the entrance lobby cum gallery that is only white painted room in the house. Elsewhere the palette is primarily in-situ concrete, kampala timber and structural steel beams. Special surfaces are of polished black granite, calacatta, arabescato and nero marquina marble. Buried in the depth of the plan is a stair of sawn basalt illuminated by a solitary skylight. It leads down to a workshop and store. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonThe house is at the end of a cul-de-sac that terminates in the smooth concrete of the entrance yard. The dominant form is the inverted roof of the carport that sails over a long copper wall concealing the garage and main entrance door. The external walls are of the same in-situ concrete as the interior with the exception of a few planes of columnar basalt masonry. The roof is a landscape of wild grass and heather and rainwater trickles in the open copper channels between the northern gables. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonAll windows and door joinery are custom made of heavy section kampala. Bathrooms are shielded with horizontal copper louvers and the full height windows of the south façade are shaded by a generous canopy. Two large sliding doors join the kitchen and dining room with this protected external space and the view over the lava field. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonThe former dwelling had a rich, mature, garden and this has been conserved as much as possible. Gaps in the planting were filled with relocated plants from the original garden and new species to balance the range and scale of flora. The paved areas were laid with irregular plates that were sliced from large basalt boulders. The hoggin in the gaps between the stone will encourage the growth of delicate mosses and lichens. Save this picture!© Sigurgeir SigurgeirssonProduct Description. The house is primarily made of concrete and kampala timber topped with grass. Concrete is one of the few indigenous building materials in Iceland. In the past many kinds of wood were used as they washed ashore as driftwood. Traditional Icelandic houses were made of driftwood and turf.Project gallerySee allShow lessA Tilting Horizon: Reflecting on 50 Issues of VOLUME and What’s Yet to ComePublicationsChadstone Shopping Centre / CallisonRTKL + The Buchan GroupSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:IcelandLocation to be used only as a reference.
