Venezuela’s Minimum Wage Hike Is No Match for Inflation

Venezuela’s Minimum Wage Hike Is No Match for Inflation

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro raised his country’s minimum wage by a whopping 30 percent last week, following a 10 percent increase in January.

During a workers’ rally commemorating May Day, Maduro told the crowd the raises were fresh evidence of the success of the country’s socialist revolution. “In the 15 years of the Revolution, we have given, in accordance with our socialist program and constitutional mandate, 25 salary hikes and 25 pension increases,” Maduro said during a nationally televised address.bandera de venezuela - photobucket

What Maduro neglected to say was that the increases are necessary to keep pace with the country’s inflation rate, which at 56 percent last year was the highest in the world.

Interest Rate in Europe is held on 0,25%

The bank slightly raised its forecast for growth to 1.2% in 2014, but dropped its inflation estimate.

Eurozone interest rates have remained unchanged since November 2013, when the bank said it expected “a prolonged period of low inflation”.

In February, eurozone inflation was at 0.8%, well below the ECB’s 2% target, which has prompted deflation worries.

However, the ECB has been confident that eurozone economies are recovering from recession.

US Government Fiscal Budget for 2015 : $ 3,9 Billion

US Government Fiscal Budget for 2015 : $ 3,9 Billion


(BusinessWeek) On Tuesday morning, the White House unveiled its $3.9 trillion budget for fiscal year 2015. While many of the details were new, the overall thrust of the budget became apparent two week ago, when news leaked that President Obama would not be including a proposal to cut Social Security cost-of-living benefits (by switching to the so-called chained Consumer Price Index) as he had in previous budgets. This was taken as a signal that the White House had given up hope of trying to reach a “grand bargain” with Republicans to cut the deficit and entitlement programs.

In past budgets, offering Social Security cuts had been Obama’s way of expressing his desire and willingness to tackle the deficit, which Republicans were always griping about. Obama’s preemptive negotiating style of offering up chained CPI as a concession drove liberals nuts, but they needn’t have worried: Republicans never took up Obama’s offer. And after more false starts than the Oakland Raiders’ offense, the prospects of the two parties reaching a grand bargain are finally dead and buried.
