However, it was still stronger than in both May and June and, in the three months to August, food sales rose 1.8 per cent on a like-for-like basis. Non-food sales gained 0.3 per cent but this was mostly driven by promotions, the BRC said.Stephen Robertson, director general of the BRC, said: “The good news is sales are still growing but anxiety about job cuts and tax rises is putting people off making major spending commitments.”He added: “With the government about to detail its cuts and a VAT rise in prospect, retailers will be hoping consumer confidence doesn’t slip over the next few months.”Helen Dickinson, head of retail at KPMG, said: “Overall sales performance deteriorated marginally as the month progressed, driven by a slowing in food, but all other sectors continued to show high levels of volatility.”Economists expect retail sales to be hit by waning consumer confidence, a dip in disposable income from austerity cuts and the VAT hike in January.

No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm Danish brewer Carlsberg yesterday said successful launches in Russia of Somersby cider and Eve, a fruit flavoured malt beverage aimed at women, meant it could look to products other than core brands for growth.Chief executive Jorgen Buhl Rasmussen also said the world’s fourth-biggest brewer was to target women in general and northern and western European markets in particular, as it looked to broaden its offering. Carlsberg could also turn to bottled water and soft drinks if that paid off, he said at the company’s annual investor day. “When we look at innovation in the future, we will see products that support beer,” he said.Head of global sales, marketing and innovation, Khalil Younes, said: “We have launched Somersby in 12 markets, including Russia, with great success.”Eve, flavoured with fruit juice, has also done well there, Younes said. “Year-to-date we have sold 60 per cent more than our budget. So we have surprised ourselves.”Among other non-beer products, the group has launched Tuborg Lime Cut in Denmark and Norway.Rasmussen said he expected east European markets to begin growing again soon after a hard 2009.The group’s Ukraine chief told Reuters in an interview that the local market – Carlsberg’s second biggest by volume – had turned around after shrinking seven per cent in 2009.Carlsberg stood by its mid-term target for operating margin in its Northern & Western Europe division to rise to 15-17 per cent in 10 years, finance director Jorn Jensen said. whatsapp Sharecenter_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Wednesday 15 September 2010 7:55 pmlast_img read more

Japan explains yen selling strategy

first_img John Dunne Japan explains yen selling strategy Japan will try to dispel international criticism of its yen-selling intervention by highlighting the damaging impact of the currency’s climb on an economy mired in deflation, the finance minister said.Japan’s solo foray into currency markets, its first in six years, sparked fears other nations might follow suit to prop up sagging exports and that such competitive devaluations could prove lethal to the slackening global economic recovery.Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda, who has retained his post in a cabinet reshuffle, told a news conference that even though he was aware of such concerns Tokyo was ready to act again if confronted with rapid currency moves.The first opportunity to explain Tokyo’s actions may come next week when Prime Minister Naoto Kan will meet President Barack Obama in New York on 23 September on the sidelines of a U.N. General Assembly meeting, Japan’s Asahi newspaper reported on Friday.In its biggest one-day operation, Tokyo offloaded up to 1.86 trillion yen (13.8 billion pounds), money market data suggests, after the currency jumped to another 15-year high against the dollar, threatening to derail Japan’s tentative economic upturn.Noda said the yen’s rapid rise – which he said was deviating from the economy’s fundamentals – was the reason Tokyo intervened in currency markets, and that he had no specific currency levels in mind when deciding whether to intervene.“I’m aware that there are various opinions. But Japan’s stance is that a prolonged yen rise is undesirable as the economy remains in a severe situation with ongoing deflation. It is important to consistently explain our stance to the international community,” Noda told reporters after a cabinet meeting.Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of euro zone finance ministers and Luxembourg’s prime minister, has said that Japan’s unilateral intervention to weaken its currency was not welcomed and that the euro zone had told Japan of its disapproval.With the market wary of pushing the dollar down too far against the yen after Tokyo’s action, the dollar was steady around 85.80 yen on Friday, 3 yen above Wednesday’s 15-year low of 82.87 yen.“It seems that Japan has shifted its argument to focus more on deflation and less on exporters,” said Kimihiko Tomita, head of foreign exchange at State Street Bank & Trust Co in Tokyo.A strong yen weighs on Japanese exporters’ profits and makes it harder for Tokyo to end the long spell of falling prices that dampens consumer demand and discourages corporate investment.The Bank of Japan has refrained from draining the extra funds released into the banking system via foreign currency purchases, effectively further easing monetary conditions by boosting the amount of money circulating in the market.Still, economists expect the impact to be limited given that the central bank’s benchmark interest rate is already near zero and corporate demand for loans is weak.The central bank did not conduct a money market operation Friday morning, boosting cash that commercial banks park at the central bank by around 2 trillion yen to about 17.1 trillion yen and pushing the overnight call rate slightly below the 0.1 per cent policy target as a result Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Friday 17 September 2010 2:49 am whatsapp 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 PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Share whatsapplast_img read more

Civil servants need to be accountable

first_img WHAT a surprise. Sir Philip Green has found that the Government is “lamentably bad” at the procurement of goods and services and the management of its property portfolio. The budgets he looked at are worth £191bn in total, and he believes billions could be saved. He argues that the public sector is spending £700m a year too much on telecoms alone.Clearly, these are shocking figures; but they should be no surprise. Whitehall is littered with such reports. In 2009, the National Audit Office found that better public sector procurement could save anything up to £11.5bn annually. Bernard Gray’s defence review found up to £2bn of savings could be made from better procurement processes. Sir Peter Gershon, who advised government from 2000 to 2004 on how to make savings, recommended greater centralisation of purchasing by the public sector, precisely what Green is now calling for. Gershon was rebuffed by Gordon Brown, but Green will find the current government more receptive. Indeed, Francis Maude, the minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General, who helped commissioned Green, has recently said that all procurement contracts over a certain threshold need to be authorised by him. Setting a centralised procurement framework but leaving purchasing – actually buying goods and services – more local is a sensible plan. It sends out powerful signals. So is that it – job done? Sadly not.The necessity to conduct a public finances rescue mission is a familiar and typically crisis-driven task. Eliminating waste and salami-slicing existing budgets tend to be the politicians’ stock answers, but neither of these approaches goes to the heart of the systemic and structural problem.The real problem at the heart of the civil service is accountability. The lack of responsibility for saving money, the lack of process for setting and challenging detailed departmental budgets and the inconsistent commercial skills – these things will not be sorted out by centralised delivery. That will shield officials from taking personal responsibility.No progress can be made on reducing the deficit and improving public services without introducing contracts that hold civil servants to account for the outcomes of their work. Offering performance-related pay, ending the notion of a civil service job for life and making it possible for ministers to sack their permanent secretaries are all vital. Only accountability will deliver real change.Nick Seddon is deputy director of the independent think-tank Reform.

Greenspan warns on bond crisis

first_img Share THE United States must move to rein in its massive budget deficits or it faces the risk of a bond market crisis, former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan said yesterday.“We’ve got to resolve this issue,” Greenspan said of the ballooning US debt levels. He spoke about the issue as a panel, chaired by former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles and former US Senator Alan Simpson, is due to deliver a report on debt and deficits by 1 December.A draft report made public last week offered a series of politically tough tax and spending choices that would seek to reduce the debt by $4 trillion by 2020.The report received a lukewarm reception from some politicians and outright condemnation by others, including House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who pronounced the ideas “simply unacceptable”. Greenspan said he believed “something equivalent to what Bowles and Simpson put out is going to be approved by Congress. But the only question is whether it is before or after a crisis in the bond market”.He said the risk is that the deficit, which hit $1.3 trillion this year, could spook the bond market. That would result in long-term interest rates moving up rapidly and could lead to a double-dip recession.
