     *  BSE shareholders have approved the new commission plan, which will increase costs, especially for retail brokers
     *  Claudia Ionescu, elected on the board of the BSE
     *  The merger with Sibex has been approved by the General Shareholder Meeting
       The current management of the Bucharest Stock Exchange and its employees will be awarded shares that are bought back as part of a buyback program, as the shareholders of the BSE have decided yesterday, who have thus rejected the proposal of SIF Transilvania of the shares in question being cancelled.
     The GSM has approved a program for the buyback of 1.49% of the share capital, worth up to 4,000,000 lei.
     The management of the BSE has proposed rewarding itself, while the performance of the market operator is not spectacular.
     In 2016, the Bucharest Stock Exchange posted a consolidated net profit of 7.87 million lei (approximately 1.74 million Euros), up 19% over 2015, when it had amounted to 7 million lei. However, 2015 showed a strong drop compared to 11.8 million lei, in 2014, and 8.2 million lei in 2013. The BSE is also not doing very well in terms of liquidity, which is the only criterion it has still to meet in order to be promoted to the emerging market status.
     Despite the results, the current management of the BSE has a massive support among shareholders, particularly among banks.
     Yesterday's General Shareholder Meeting had a quorum of approximately 70%, with all the proposals of the BSE going through without problems.
     * Retail brokers, unhappy with the new fees
     One of the decisions made yesterday concerns the modification of the structure of trading fees, by reducing the variable part of the commissions and increasing the fixed part.
     Retail brokers said, in yesterday's meeting, that the proposal places them at a disadvantage from banks and that it goes against the BSE strategy to encourage the retail segment.
     Lucian Anghel, the president of the Bucharest Stock Exchange, has argued the promotion of the new commission plan saying that its structure is the same as the one used in developed countries, according to some sources present in the meeting. Brokers responded that volumes on other markets are not comparable to those on the BSE.
     Dan Paul, the president of the Association of Brokers told us: "If the proposal of the Board of Directors was a mistake that is detrimental to the retail brokers, then things can still be straightened out by January 1st, 2018, when the new commission structure is set to come into effect, through another General Shareholders Meeting, where the Board of Directors would come up with a new proposal".
     According to some sources, the revenues of the BSE are not expected to increase following the implementation of the new tariffs, because the fixed fees will compensate the reduction of the variable fees.
     The Bucharest Stock Exchange is targeting a buying fee of 0.035% and a sale fee of 0.095%.
     The cut of the trading commission on the for "buy" orders is -12.5% compared to the current level of the commission in question, and the cut of the trading fee on "sell" orders is -5% compared to the current level.
     Also, the BSE intends to introduce a fixed tariff per filled order of 0.95 lei applicable for the Regular tier of the spot market for stocks.
     According to the BSE, the fee will be charged for the execution of an order, regardless of the number of transactions generated within a period of time.
     Also, in yesterday's general shareholder meeting, Claudia Ionescu, Head of the Securities Division of BRD, was elected as member of the Board of Directors of the BSE, replacing Radu Toia after his resignation.
     The BSE has also approved the merger with Sibex and the payout of a gross dividend per share of 0.92028 lei.

GABRIELA MIHAELA VOICILĂ, THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT MINISTER:
     Where there are many entrepreneurs there is creation, where there are many women entrepreneurs there is divine creation, says Gabriela Mihaela Voicilă, state secretary in the Ministry for the Business Environment, Trade and Entrepreneurship (MMACA). In her opinion, entrepreneurship means joy, a better situation, but less time for the family: "Taken together, entrepreneurship means achievements (...) Every one of us needs validation, for having built, having created something".  click here to read the entire article

IN THE LAWSUITS AGAINST THE BANKS
     * Piperea: "In the Andriciuc case, the EU Court of Justice has not limited its argumentation to the CHF, but expanded it to cover any currency for which the debtors weren't hedged"
     The courts in the country have begun ruling in favor of borrowers and freezing the value of the European currency at the exchange rate valid on the date the loans were originated, in the lawsuits brought against the banks.  click here to read the entire article

IN THE ROMANIAN BANANA REPUBLIC...
     The urge "Mircea, act like you're working!", back in the days of the so-called revolution of December 1989, was brought back recently by a new "director".
     We are talking of course, about the meeting between NBR governor Mugur Isărescu, and a government "delegation" led by chamber of deputies chairman Liviu Dragnea, together with PM Viorica Dăncilă.
     Sources from within the PSD, quoted by ziare.com, have claimed that, "in the meeting with the NBR governor, Liviu Dragnea seemed to be looking for a way out, and he seems confused, as he didn't expect his decisions to lead to such effects in the economy".  click here to read the entire article

     Liviu Dragnea's insistence in moving the Romanian embassy from Tel Aviv, to Jerusalem, feeds an older, widespread confusion. Much older. Politically, Jerusalem has been divided from the first presence of the Judeans on the lands of the Palestinians, since back in the days of Abraham and Abimelec. "The indivisible Jerusalem" wanted by Benjamin Netanyahu is a spiritual creation.
     Definitely, pilgrims and locals claim that Jerusalem has a geography, meaning that the city would be compatible with the cardinal points and that is why Palestinians, Israelis and people overall, including those of the UN, EU and the US, speak about Eastern Jerusalem and Western Jerusalem, without anybody being surprised that that is happening at the center of the world, where the god of the Judeans began his creation, starting from the very rock from which later Archangel Gabriel raised Mohammed to visit Heaven, the same place of origin where one of the seven angels "and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God." (Apocalypse, 21: 10), where God is one of the same.  click here to read the entire article

     The dystopia of 2169 seems to be 151 years away from us, if we were to watch the American sci-fi movie "In Time", in which New Zealand screenwriter, director and producer New Zealand Andrew M. Niccol has imagined a world in which money has been replaced by the lifespan left and each individual over 25 years old (when they stop aging), are wearing a counter on their arm, displaying how much they have left to live; the economic system relies on transactions paid in lifespan - banks, loans, interest rates - the rich are storing billions of years, while the poor only have hours, minutes or seconds left and when their time is up they die suddenly, as if struck by a mace.  click here to read the entire article

     * "Iliescu on trial for all the bloodshed!" was one of the powerful slogans of the University Square, as well as "Iliescu - KGB, go back to the USSR!".
     We, who had organized the marathon protest of the century, knew who Ion Iliescu was, as the rest of the Romanian people took a long time to catch on, even Brucan was wrong in his estimate that the much maligned "stupid people" would take two decades to "awake".  click here to read the entire article
