Confronted with a debt of over G$345 billion at the end of 2017, the politicians are yet to convince the people that the “GOOD LIFE” is coming. This Granger government is exhibiting a mentality that says it can out-borrow, out-tax and out-spend any other government in the history of Guyana. But to what end? Where is empirical evidence to prove that all of this borrowing has helped to expand the productive sectors and productivity per capita?The two main indicators to identify debt stress in a nation are the Debt-to-GDP ratio and the Debt Services-to-Total Revenue ratio (see graph below). On both scores, the post-2015 government has moved in the wrong direction.In May 2017, the Government of Guyana promised the IMF, in the Debt Sustainability Analysis process, a Debt Services-to-Revenue ratio in 2018 below 7.7%. But that was nothing but an empty promise, because, within 12 months, it had marched on these figures in the opposite direction, as the graph above proves. Today Guyana is rapidly moving toward a point of increasing its debt stress, with the Debt-to-GDP ratio set to surpass 50% in 2019, for the first time since 2014.Why are these indicators important to the people? The Debt-to-GDP ratio tells the story of the ratio of the total public debt to the value of the total goods and services produced in that country within a year. This ratio indicates the ability of a nation to pay back its debt. A higher ratio speaks to the fact that it will become more difficult to pay back the incurred debt. To complicate matters, Guyana’s growth rate is currently in the “dog house”, thanks to the policy paralysis in the Granger regime.The Debt Services-to-Revenue ratio is an indicator of the portion of revenue set aside exclusively to pay debts. The higher this ratio, the more difficult it becomes to repay one’s loans, and fewer dollars will be available for important services like education and healthcare. In economic management, a higher Debt-to-GDP ratio usually leads to a higher Debt Services-to-Revenue ratio. Today, all the indicators are pointing to increasing debt stress, thanks to the bankrupt economic policies of this Granger government.In 1990, under the PNC, the Debt Services-to-Revenue ratio was 140%, which means that Guyana had to default on some of its debt in those days, because it could not meet its debt repayment. At that time, the international community deemed Guyana as uncreditworthy and technically bankrupt. By 1993, during the PPP administration, it had dropped to 105%, thanks to some work under Hoyte, but Guyana was still not out of the woods. By 2009, that ratio had dropped to 6%, thanks to a combination of efforts both locally (focused agenda from the PPP on paying debt installments) and internationally (debt write-off initiative).However, since 2009, there have been serious concerns about how our debt stock was being managed. Loans are being borrowed, but it is unclear who has benefited from these loans. In a growing economy, the challenge is masked, and thus under the PPP, though it was a concern, it was not brought to the front burner. But when an economy is flatlining, as is happening today under Mr. Granger, we have a major problem, as the debt stress escalates without much recourse.The solution is simple: increase revenue or cut expenses. What is happening today under Mr. Granger is revenue is flatlining and expenses are rapidly expanding. In the APNU/AFC Manifesto, the Prime Ministerial Candidate, Mr. Moses Nagamootoo, promised the nation that his government shall “cut out waste and extravagance and limit borrowing”. But as the evidence proved, Mr. Nagamootoo is just a button that Mr. Granger presses when he want to hear codswallop, because Nagamootoo’s word are nothing but hot air.If one observes Table 9 in the National Budget, one can find that the travel cost of the government in 2014 was G$3.5 billion. In 2017, it was G$4.9 billion. This Granger administration has increased its international travel cost by over G$1 billion within 30 months. In those same 30 months, over G$300 million was spent on the two State Houses on Main Street for two families. Until this financial waste and extravagance is cut out, the only way to complete the financing of the budget is more borrowing. But expansion in debt not backed by expanding payback capacity destroys jobs and economic growth, and the world know it. Can we understand why the investors are not coming?
Some fans stopped looking for tickets after FIFA hinted that they were hard to come by.“I was impressed and excited about seeing the announcement that the majority of games had sold out,” England supporter Sean Cottrell said. “I was also disappointed as I was planning to take my family to see a few of the games.“But we changed our plans when we saw that we unlikely would be able to get tickets. It was probably something lost in translation in the communications and now I regret not double-checking.”The choice of stadiums isn’t always helpful for fans, either, even for those a short distance away.England’s next game against Argentina is in the northwestern city of Le Havre, which has no scheduled flights to anywhere in the world.

Philippines’ Margiellyn Didal and Christiana Nicole Means during the 30th Southeast Asian Games Philippines 2019 skateboard Game of SKATE competitions held in Sigtuna Hall, Tagaytay International Convention Center. INQUIRER PHOTO/LYN RILLONTAGAYTAY – Fresh off her golden performance in the Southeast Asian Games, skateboarding star Margielyn Didal renewed her call for more facilities for the emerging sport in the country, saying the three medals won in the Game of SKATE event was a testament of the Philippines’ immense potential in the sport.“We have to wake up,” Didal said. “It’s just the first event in skateboarding and we already have three medals. We don’t even have skate parks. Can you imagine if we have facilities, I’m sure there will be more medals to come.”ADVERTISEMENT But Lederman recovered, using a “360 front side shove it” and an even more difficult “laser flip” that Basral failed to pull off.“He scared me a little bit,” said Lederman, referring to Basral, who ousted Filipino Jeffrey Gonzales in the quarterfinals last Tuesday. “It only shows that you can have your own fingerprints in skateboarding and one can also learn from the opponent.” No more promises from Aminam as PH eyes end of 5×5 gold drought No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist NFA assures ample rice supply in ashfall, eruption-affected areas Thailand reports case of coronavirus from China Microsoft ends free Windows 7 security updates on Tuesday Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:11SEA GAMES 2019: PH’s Nesthy Petecio boxing featherweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)08:07Athletes treated to a spectacle as SEA Games 2019 officially ends06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold05:02SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball05:21Drama in karate: Tsukii ‘very sad’ over coach’s bullying, cold shoulder03:24PH’s James Palicte boxing light welterweight final (HIGHLIGHTS) Didal is targeting a double gold output as she competes in her favorite street event on Friday at Tagaytay Skate Complex, which was built specifically for the SEA Games.

“An embarrassment,” is what famed former player and coach Mike Ditka called it. “Twenty percent of nothing is nothing,” former Bills offensive lineman Joe DeLamielleure said. Ditka, DeLamielleure and another Hall of Famer, Lem Barney, joined one-time Packers star Jerry Kramer on Thursday to promote Kramer’s endeavor to auction championship rings and other valuable memorabilia to raise money for their fellow retirees. Ditka described the situation as “shameful,” saying he received a $100,000 donation from an owner of a sport other than football. When he sent letters to the 32 NFL owners asking for the same donation some time ago, he said he received one check for $5,000 and another for $10,000. He said he sent those checks back. “It’s a problem that should have been remedied and it’s going to get remedied,” Ditka said. “If they don’t, a lot of people are going to be embarrassed.” Ditka brought up a number of players – John Mackey, the late Ernie Stautner, Doug Atkins and others less famous – who are aging and hurting. Perhaps the worst case was the late Mike Webster, the Hall of Fame Steelers center who suffered from mental illness that was widely attributed to head injuries. He died homeless in 2002. “I can’t tell you today if Mike Webster would’ve been alive today,” Ditka said. “I don’t know. But I do know he wouldn’t have been a damn street person. I know his family wouldn’t have had to sue to get his benefits. It’s not right. It’s just not.” MIAMI – They limp through life, often too proud to ask for handouts but desperately in need of help. They are the aging NFL retirees and, as a rule, the older they are, the less they receive from the league’s pension and disability funds. While Ditka wouldn’t say precisely who’s to blame, DeLamielleure wasn’t shy about it. He blamed former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and players’ union head Gene Upshaw for the growing discrepancy in the amount of money recent retirees and old-timers get in pension and health care. “They have been in power for 20 years and have done nothing about it,” said DeLamielleure, the former Bills lineman who is auctioning off a gold bracelet he received from O.J. Simpson. But Upshaw, speaking later at a separate news conference, said: “For anyone to say that the NFLPA does not care about retired players is not responsible. They don’t know the record, they don’t know the body of work.” The league says $126 million a year goes into pension and post-career disability benefits for retired players and their families. The accounts pay out $60 million a year to those players, $20 million of it for disability payments. In the most recent collective bargaining agreement, payments from the pension fund were raised by 25 percent for players who retired before 1982 and 10percent for those who retired after 1982. But retired football players often have difficulty getting health insurance because of injuries suffered on the field, and the old-timers have long endured a health-care gap. More work will be done, Upshaw promised, though he conceded many retirees will probably never be completely happy. “It’s impossible, economics-wise,” he said. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello declined comment, saying commissioner Roger Goodell would address the subject today at his news conference. Upshaw pointed out, however, that it’s a reality of corporate America that those who work in later eras and make more money do better on their post-retirement plans than those who came before them. Some see the NFL as a special exception. Those who played in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s laid the groundwork for the popularity of the league. They did it without the same level of medical care. Yet today they hurt every bit as much – often more – as the players who retired much later. Upshaw acknowledged Ditka’s complaint, and said that too much red tape exists. Union president Troy Vincent said he wished retired players would talk about other issues, too. “Every conversation with retired players is strictly about economics,” he said. “You get tired of talking about it. Let’s develop a relationship first. You’re a Hall of Famer. What can I do to improve my game? It’s not just all about economics.” To many, it is. An idea hit Kramer when he saw the Super Bowl ring he lost in an airplane 25 years ago being auctioned online. He tracked down the seller, yelled at him a while, and when things calmed down, they agreed to this: There would be an auction, but the proceeds would go to retirees in need. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Cubs traded Maddux, their former ace and a four-time Cy Young Award winner, to the Dodgers on Monday in exchange for infielder Cesar Izturis. Maddux, a 327-game winner who was in his second stint with the Cubs, waived his no-trade clause to join the Dodgers, agent Scott Boras said. Maddux started the season 5-0 but the 40-year-old has won four games since. He is 9-11 with a 4.69 ERA in 22 starts. The Dodgers also acquired shortstop Julio Lugo from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in exchange for highly touted minor league prospect Joel Guzman and fellow minor-leaguer Sergio Pedroza, ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark reports. Lugo will play second base for a while Jeff Kent is sidelined by an oblique injury and will reassess his position when Kent returns.

No injuries were reported Sunday, and the blaze was about 40 percent contained. “We managed to slow down or stop growth in most places,” Bastion said. Calling it “one of the largest wildland fires in recent California history,” Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency for Ventura County Sunday evening. The move clears the way for assistance from the governor’s emergency services office and state funds for rebuilding and recovery. The wind fluctuated Sunday but was still weaker than in recent days, gusting at 40 mph compared to 50 mph Saturday while shifting away from towns and back on itself. That lowered the risk of flames spreading and let more ground crews go to work. As winds faded, local residents appeared less anxious as more than 3,000 firefighters and emergency workers blanketed the area. OJAI – Firefighters slowed the growth Sunday of a 134,000-acre wildfire in the Los Padres National Forest, escaping what could have been a destructive weekend as winds proved tamer than expected and began blowing away from homes. “The fire is still on the radar, but it’s not what it was,” said Battalion Chief Kelly Zombro of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Gentler winds allowed firefighters to bring in more than 40 helicopters and airplanes, including a hulking DC-10 modified to carry fire retardant, to make drops against the blaze. Firefighters credited the jetliner with knocking back the edge of the fire that was creeping toward the town of Ojai, an artists’ enclave popular with tourists. “It was a good day for air operations,” said Dan Bastion of the U.S. Forest Service. Another blaze started by embers from the huge Day Fire burned about 7,000 acres in the canyons above Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, which sits between Ojai and Fillmore along Highway 150, about 75 miles north of Los Angeles. The campus was evacuated late Saturday. Students said college maintenance employees had been running sprinklers nonstop for a week. Buses transported evacuated students to a nearby church for the night.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
