危机:信用破产 美国经济就没救了

 

美股上冲乏力,大幅反幅两日后又回落,投资者昨日(4日)早段采取观望态度,美股走势明显没有方向,道琼斯指数在140点之间窄幅横行上落,下午2:30道琼斯指数还微升12点。但原油暴跌,加上市场忧虑即将公布的失业数字会高达15年新高的6.8%,以及汽车制造业即使得到援助仍将未能存活,这些利空消息带来沉重沽压,道琼斯指数在一个小时内插水式下泻近350点至全日最低的8259点,尾段反弹约117点。

道琼斯指数收市报8376点,下跌215点或2.5%;标普500指数报845点,下跌26点或2.9%;纳指下跌47点或3.1%,报1446点。道琼斯指数全日最高8632点,最低8259点,全日波幅373点。纽约证交所成交缩减至14.7亿股。

美国劳工部公布上周申领失业救济总人数突破400万,至409万,创1982年以来新高。而美国供应管理协会(Institute for Supply Management )的工厂指数下跌至1982年的新低,10月份工厂订单跌至8年以来新低,本地及海外市场的需求锐减,显示由房地产开始的危机,已漫延到生产及服务业。美联储主席伯南克也公开警告房屋断供收楼的速度太快,政府要想办法救助业主,但无奈布什政府行将交接,已无意推出救业主的方案。

美国市场的焦点仍是汽车制造业,濒临崩溃边缘的通用汽车和克莱斯勒正考虑接受美国国会提议的“预先安排破产”,作为获取美国政府救助的条件。市场人士指出,这是一种高保险的破产方案。通用(GM)再度向美国国会求救,说急需80亿美元援助以应付这两个月的困境。GM的行政总裁华戈纳(Rick Wagoner)在参议院银行委员会(Senate Banking Committee) 时承认,“GM今天来到这里的原因是因为犯了错误,超出控制的力量已将GM推到死亡边缘”。

福特汽车就较为乐观,表示只需政府90亿美元援助,就可以渡过危机,到2011年就可以转亏为盈。市场普遍认为政府会通过救援汽车制造业的方案,但忧虑即使有政府的援助,汽车制造业也未必不会死,而它们的倒闭,将给经济带来难以想象的打击。受此影响,汽车股受到沽压,GM劲跌逾16%,报4.11美元,福特汽车收市报2.66美元,下挫6.7%

油价也在跳水,纽约原油收市跌穿每桶44美元,报43.67美元,下挫6.7%,是2005125日以来新低。油组轮任主席、阿尔及利亚能源和矿业部长哈利勒周三话,油价走势取决于国际市场供求形势、库存水平、全球经济增长前景等因素,油价“没有底部可言”,油价有可能跌到一个非常低的水平。他又表示,石油市场显然存在供应过剩问题。美林的商品策略分析员宾茨(Francisco Blanch)更在一份报告中说,全球性经济衰落引至原油需求缩减,若全面波及中国,明年油价有可能会下跌至每桶25美元。能源及油股跟随油价下泻,标普500的四十只能源类股份全部下跌,雪佛龙(Chervon)及艾克森美孚(Exxon Mobil) 分别下挫4%71.76美元及跌3.4%76.27美元。

昨天讲到纽约大学教授罗宾尼(Nouriel Roubini)“停滞通缩论”,今天可以再补两笔。罗宾尼说政府会做大量的事情莱制止通缩,当传统的减息救市方法不见效时,政府会做非传统的事情,例如向金融机构提供大量资金,以阻止信贷紧缩和和利息高企。或者,政府可能直接出钱去为银行存户、投资者和贷款人赎身。但这些无效的时候,银行同业短息和政府的目标利率息差仍大,又或者能稳住短息(银行同业拆息)但稳不住长息(按揭利息、商业票据利息和消费者信贷利息),政府唯有采取更“疯狂”的措施,例如长期维持零利息,并透过大手购入政府债券放水,并直接买入商业票据、按揭和按揭支持证券(mortgage-backed securities MBS)及其它资产支持的证券。罗宾尼说,美联储早已做紧拉低短息的工作,现在正在做他认为“疯狂”的举动——直接买入按揭支持证券。

或许罗宾尼讲“疯狂”两字并无贬义,并不表示他不赞成这些举措,但说疯狂难免有超常后果,美国为所有坏账包底的做法,估计会令未来2年美国将出现1万亿美元财政赤字,罗宾尼认为美国政府有信用破产的危机。

比较一下中国及美国的情况,就知美国危险好多,中国现在受金融海啸的主要实质影响是出口急跌,但这一部份可以由政府支出或政府刺激内需来填补。中国未来两年推4万亿救市方案,其实政府只是直接出资1万亿,政府支出大增,明年中国的财赤和国债皆会创新高,预计要有5000亿人民币财政赤字和要发行5000亿国债来找数,但中国这几年经济很好,有1.9亿美元(13万亿人民币)外汇储备,足可搞的定5000亿的赤字。再说,中国财赤高企,但贸易仍有盈余,钱还是流入而非流出,只是政府向自己人民借钱花罢了,不是欠外债向外国借钱。再加上人民币并不是自由兑换,所以中国金融系统封闭,但在灾难蔓延时,封闭有封闭的好处。

但美国就不同了,财赤、贸易同时高企,发行国债其实主要靠贸易伙伴国(日本和中国)购买,等如借外债支持本国花钱,若出现罗宾尼所讲的美国信用破产,直接出现的后果是美元急跌,美债价格急跌,债券收益率急升,再拉高美元利息,其灾难后果难以想象,若出现这种状况,就没有什么方法可救了。

美国遇上百年不遇的危机,当然不要以为一定会出现上述的最坏的美国信用破产状况,但假设出现的机会只有一、两成,此种风险却绝对不可轻视。我并不是说不可投资,只是说投资时要适当地防避风险而矣,慎择股票也是避险之法。

Half-million jobs vanish in a flash as economy deteriorates

 

By JEANNINE AVERSA, AP Economics Writer Jeannine Aversa, Ap Economics Writer – 33 mins ago

WASHINGTON – An alarming half-million American jobs vanished virtually in a flash last month, the worst mass layoffs in over a third of a century, as economic carnage spread ever faster and the nation hurtled toward what could be the hardest hard times since the Great Depression.

Underscoring Friday's dismaying signs of a rapidly deteriorating economy, General Motors announced yet more job cuts, and a record number of homeowners were reported behind on mortgage payments or in foreclosure.

Somehow Wall Street found a silver lining, betting that so much bad news would force fresh government action to revive the foundering economy. The Dow Jones industrial rose 259 points.

Staring at 533,000 lost jobs, economists were anything but hopeful. Since the start of the recession last December, the economy has shed 1.9 million jobs, and the number of unemployed people has increased by 2.7 million — to 10.3 million now out of work.

Some analysts predict 3 million more jobs will be lost between now and the spring of 2010 — and that the once-humming U.S. economy could stagger backward at a shocking 6 percent rate for the current three-month quarter.

"The economy is in a free fall," said Richard Yamarone of Argus Research. "It is as if someone flicked off the switch on hiring."

"It's a mess," said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Economy.com. "Businesses, battening down the hatches, are concerned about their survival and are cutting workers."

President-elect Barack Obama said the crisis "is likely to get worse before it gets better," and no one was going to argue that point. Economists predicted the unemployment rate, which rose to a 15-year high of 6.7 percent in November, could soar as high as 10 percent before skittish employers begin hiring again.

The jobless rate would have bolted to 7 percent for the month if not for the exodus of 422,000 people from the work force for any number of reasons — going back to school, retiring or simply abandoning job searches out of sheer frustration. When people stop looking, they're no longer counted in the unemployment rate.

The rate was at 4.7 percent just one year ago, 6.5 percent in October.

Employment shrank in virtually every part of the economy — factories, construction companies, financial firms, accounting and bookkeeping, architectural and engineering firms, hotels and motels, food services, retailers, temporary help, transportation, publishing, janitorial and building maintenance, and even waste management. The few fields spared included education, health care and government.

The United States — already in recession for a year, may not be out of it until the spring of 2010 — making for the longest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, economists are now saying. Recessions in the mid-1970s and early 1980s last 16 months.

Unemployment peaked at 10.8 percent in 1982, terrible but still a far cry from the Depression, when roughly one in four Americans were out of work.

That said, more pain is certainly in store. Fresh evidence:

• A record one in 10 American homeowners with a mortgage was either at least a month behind on payments or in foreclosure at the end of September, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported.

General Motors, already pleading with Congress for billions of dollars to survive the month, said it would lay off an additional 2,000 workers as it cuts shifts at three car factories starting in February due to slowing demand for GM cars.

President George W. Bush, who used the word "recession" for the first time to describe the economy's state, pledged Friday to explore more efforts to ease housing, credit and financial stresses.

"There is still more work to do," Bush said. "My administration is committed to ensuring that our economy succeeds."

President-elect Obama said the dismal job news underscored the need for forceful action, even as he warned that the pain could not be quickly relieved.

"There are no quick or easy fixes to this crisis ... and it's likely to get worse before it gets better," Obama said. "At the same time, this ... provides us with an opportunity to transform our economy to improve the lives of ordinary people by rebuilding roads and modernizing schools for our children, investing in clean energy solutions to break our dependence on imported oil, and making an early down payment on the long-term reforms that will grow and strengthen our economy for all Americans for years to come."

On a personal level, right before Thanksgiving, Mark Pierce, 51, who was executive pastor at a church in Mansfield, Ohio, was given a choice: get laid off or take a lesser job with a roughly 40 percent pay cut. His last day of work was Tuesday.

"Anyone in that situation looks at it very personally," he said. "You say, 'Is this a cut across the board, or it just me?'"

It's not just him.

Employers are slashing costs as they cope with sagging sales in the U.S. and in other countries, which are struggling with their own economic troubles.

In recent days, AT&T Inc., DuPont, JPMorgan Chase & Co., as well as jet engine maker Pratt & Whitney, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp., and mining company Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. all have announced layoffs.

Tom Solso, chief executive of Columbus, Ind.-based manufacturer Cummins Inc., said Friday the company planned to cut 500 jobs, or about 3.5 percent of its work force despite other cost-cutting moves such as temporarily shutting down plants, shortening work weeks and extending holiday shutdowns.

Fighting for survival, the chiefs of Chrysler LLC, General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. returned to Capitol Hill Friday to again ask lawmakers for as much as $34 billion in emergency aid.

Workers with jobs did see modest wage gains in November. Average hourly earnings rose to $18.30, a 0.4 percent increase from the previous month. Over the year, wages have grown 3.7 percent, but paychecks haven't stretched that far because of high prices for energy, food and other items.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is now expected ratchet down a key interest rate — near a historic low of 1 percent — by at least a half-percentage point on Dec. 16 in a bid to breathe life into the moribund economy. Bernanke is exploring other economic revival options and wants the government to step up efforts to curb home foreclosures.

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, whose department oversees the $700 billion financial bailout program, also is weighing new initiatives such as tapping the second half of that rescue money to ease the economic crisis.

Obama, who takes office on Jan. 20, has called for a massive economic recovery bill to generate 2.5 million jobs over his first two years in office. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has vowed to have a package ready on Inauguration Day for Obama's signature.

The measure, which could total $500 billion, would bankroll big public works projects to create jobs, provide aid to states to help with Medicaid costs, and provide money toward renewable energy development.

For now that's cold comfort to Gary Cope, 33, who lost his communications job this week at Roanoke, Va.-based high-tech research and development company Luna Innovations Inc.

Cope was called into a meeting first thing Thursday morning. The message: He was being laid off, for financial reasons, effective immediately.

He left with a box of his belongings and about two months' severance. As Cope walked out the door, all he could think was, "I have a 3-year-old son and I'm a single dad."

"I came home and did my initial pity party, then I got myself together, talked to my family and went right to work" rewriting his resume and sending it out, Cope said.

Job losses mount as economic picture worsens

 

Saturday December 6, 9:30 am ET

Half-million US jobs lost as economy continues worst free-fall in decades

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Record numbers of homeowners are falling behind on mortgage payments and the U.S. economy is losing jobs at an alarming rate with companies big and small slashing their work force.

A half-million American jobs disappeared month, the worst mass layoffs in more than three decades, as the nation spiraled downward in what could be the hardest hard times since the Great Depression.

Bush administration officials said Friday night that the White House is considering telling Congress as early as next week that it wants to tap the unused $350 billion of the financial industry bailout. It was not immediately clear how the administration might use the money.

General Motors, one of the Big Three automakers that went to Congress this week for a second time with hat in hand, announced it was cutting even more jobs.

"The economy is in a free fall," said Richard Yamarone of Argus Research. "It is as if someone flicked off the switch on hiring."

Despite the gloom, investors found a silver lining, betting that so much bad news would force fresh government action to revive the foundering economy. The Dow Jones industrial rose 259 points.

Obama discusses economic plan to save, create jobs

Saturday December 6, 6:01 am ET
By Ann Sanner, Associated Press Writer

 

In radio address, Obama looks to create jobs by saving energy and upgrading schools, roads

CHICAGO (AP) -- President-elect Barack Obama said Saturday he's asked his economic team for a recovery plan that saves or creates more than 2 million jobs, makes public buildings more energy-efficient and invests in the country's roads and schools.

"We won't just throw money at the problem," Obama said in his weekly radio address and Internet video. "We'll measure progress by the reforms we make and the results we achieve -- by the jobs we create, by the energy we save, by whether America is more competitive in the world."

Obama's remarks come after the Labor Department announced Friday that employers cut 533,000 jobs in November, the most in 34 years.

Obama said his plan would put millions of people to work by "making the single largest new investment in our national infrastructure since the creation of the federal highway system in the 1950s."

He also wants to install energy-saving light bulbs and replace old heating systems in federal buildings to cut costs and create jobs.

School buildings would get an upgrade, too. "Because to help our children compete in a 21st century economy, we need to send them to 21st century schools," Obama said.

As a part of the plan, Obama said he wants to expand Internet access in communities. Hospitals also should be connected to each other online.

"Here, in the country that invented the Internet, every child should have the chance to get online," he said.

Obama said he would announce other details of the economic recovery plan in the coming weeks. He said he'd work with Congress to pass the initiative when lawmakers reconvene in January.

美国高层被裁员后:为求一职不怕浪迹天涯!

 

几个月前当我开始找工作时,曾很有机会在亚特兰大一家银行得到份工作。这工作本身不错,但千里迢迢去亚特兰大工作在当时对我有些勉为其难。那里距我在康涅狄格州费尔菲德的家很远,但那时即便比那里近一些的工作选择对我也不会有多大吸引力。要换成今天?如果同样给我这样一份工作,我会毫不犹豫地接受下来。

说实话,我的遣散费已经花得差不多了,再加上纽约就业市场的日益不景气,远赴他乡工作现在对我来说已不再是什么难题了。我妻子一如既往地支持我的工作选择,因为我的前雇主标准普尔公司(Standard & Poors)的工作需要,我们曾在伦敦和法兰克福生活了数年。

广告我的优先选择当然是把家继续安在康涅狄格州,找一份在纽约或南康涅狄格的工作。次之是迁居波士顿,我和妻子都在波士顿郊区长大;或是到距我家更近些的哈特福德和普罗维登斯工作,这样我可以每天往返于家和工作地之间,周末时留在家里。

然而鉴于目前的经济形势和黯淡的就业前景,如果其他城市也拥有良好的就业前景、不错的住房条件、多彩的文化生活,我们同样需要考虑那里的就业机会,某些情况下甚至好天气也会成为选择工作地的一项考量指标。

以往我们只将就业地限定在我们可能迁居的地方。我们愿意考虑芝加哥、田纳西州的纳什维尔、圣路易斯、费城和华盛顿。而现在北卡罗来纳州的夏洛特和罗利、亚特兰大、佛罗里达州的坦帕以及俄亥俄州的哥伦布也在我们考虑之列。现在还真没有多少我们“害怕”迁居的地方。

(本文作者在今年3月之前的8年中一直担任雷曼兄弟公司(Lehman Brothers Holdings)评级顾问部门的高级副总裁。在此之前他是标准普尔公司的一名经理。他1982年在巴布森学院(Babson College)获得了M.B.A学位。他现在与妻子居住在康涅狄格州的费尔菲德,有两个孩子。)

11月失业率创15年来新高 布什承认经济衰退

核心提示:布什总统当地时间5日公开承认美国经济已进入衰退期,美国11月减少53万份工作机会,失业率攀升到6.7%,创1993年来新高。布什指出,美国经济衰退,主要是因为房屋、信用和金融市场发生严重问题。

126日电 布什总统当地时间5日公开承认美国经济已进入衰退期,但强调政府正采取多项措施,对经济恢复活力有信心。

据“中央社”报道,美国11月减少53万份工作机会,失业率攀升到6.7%,创1993年来新高。布什在白宫发表电视谈话指出,美国经济衰退,主要是因为房屋、信用和金融市场发生严重问题。他的政府已针对问题根源对症下药。

他说,最紧急的问题是信用市场面临困难。企业界和消费者需要付得起利率的贷款,以便投资和消费。因此政府正努力稳定市场,让民间更付得起及借得到信用贷款。

布什表示,他的政府正与美联储及美国联邦储蓄保险公司一起努力,现在信用贷款正开始动起来,冻结的市场正开始解冻。虽然还有很多事情要做,但已出现一些令人激励的现象。

在房屋方面,布什说,政府继续采取行动,防止可以避免的法拍,并让房市恢复健康。现在房贷利率正在下降。

在汽车工业方面,布什强调,他担心纳税人的钱被用来拯救活不了的公司。汽车公司必须证明,获得政府的纾困,它们不但能活存,而且可以茁壮。国会必须确保纳税人的钱可以回收。

布什最后说,他有信心政府正在采取的步骤,将能修补经济,并让经济恢复活力。 (本文来源:中新网 )

奥巴马称美国经济最糟糕的时刻还未到来

 

美国当选总统奥巴马5日发表声明表示,当天公布的11月份失业率数据反映了美国当前面临的经济危机的严重性,并警告说美国经济最糟糕时刻还未到来。

  奥巴马表示,自美国经济去年12月份陷入衰退以来,美国已失去了近200万个就业岗位,这也是他为什么要制定经济复兴计划并为美国创造250万个就业岗位的原因。

  他强调,当前的经济危机是多年问题积累的结果,不存在应对危机的快速或简便方法,而且危机还可能继续恶化。但他也表示,经济危机也给美国经济转型提供了机会。

  美国劳工部当天公布的数据显示,11月份美国的失业率上升到6.7%,为15年来的最高点。考虑到目前严峻的经济形势,很多经济学家预计美国失业率明年将进一步上升到8%或者更高水平。
