THE QUICK RISE OF THE INDEX WHICH SETS THE TREND FOR INTEREST RATES ON LOANS DENOMINATED IN LEI ISN'T STOPPING
BURSA 16.11.2017

EMILIA OLESCU (translated by Cosmin Ghidoveanu)

     The 3-month ROBOR rate, which is used to calculate the interest rates, the majority of the loans denominated in lei, has jumped past the 2% psychological level, and yesterday reached 2.06%, up from Tuesday's 1.92%, according to data from the NBR.
     The accelerated rise of this index, which began one month a half ago, doesn't seem to be stopping, in fact it seems to be picking up speed.
     The hike of the ROBOR was unavoidable, market analysts claim, who have repeatedly warned that it isn't just in Romania that the interest rates have begun rising and that the time of low interest rates has passed. Ionuț Dumitru, the president of the Fiscal Council recently told us: "This means that it needs to be clear for everybody. As long as inflation is rising, and it is rising rather quickly (we have 1.8% inflation in September, compared to 1.2% in August), the ROBOR will also rise. For example, our estimates for the end of the year are that inflation will reach 2.4%, 3% for the first quarter of 2018 - somewhere past 3.5% and over 4% in mid-2018. In this context it was unavoidable, and I want to emphasize that - unavoidable -, for the interest rates to rise. Whether it increases faster or slower, it can be a long talk, but the trend for the rise of the ROBOR in the coming quarters was unavoidable".
     The interest rates have already risen significantly, in the market, which recently drew the attention of NBR governor Mugur Isărescu, who explained that one of the reasons which led to the booming rise of the ROBOR was the improved collection rate of the ANAF, which led to the drop of market liquidity and respectively, to the rise of the interest rate. Mugur Isărescu said: "When the general account of the Treasury is at the NBR, the money that reaches that account is a removal from the money supply, and the Ministry of Public Finance can end up having as much as 20 billion lei in its account. We gave them 9 billion lei (ed. note: as part of the Repo operation conducted after the first rise of the ROBOR, when the NBR injected 9.3 billion lei in the market), to offset the money supply which the Ministry of Finances withdrew. In September, the money was withdrawn from the market when banks were creating their Minimum Mandatory Reserve (RMO). There are two factors that coincided for the first time after many years - along with the formation of the ROMO also came the better collection from the Ministry of Public Finances. (...) And bankers got scared, because they tend to be "fraidy cats".
     In October and November, the Ministry of Finance kept a good chunk of what it accumulated in September, as it will probably make large payments in December, the NBR governor said.
     In the opinion of Adrian Vasilescu, strategy consultant with the NBR, a perfect tax collection rate does not necessarily depleting the liquidity of the banking system, because it is a process which goes both ways, as the Ministry of Finance both collects and spends, which is the mechanism which allows the market to adjust.
     In order to manage the liquidity in the banking system, the National Bank of Romania (NBR) conducted four repo operations in October, injecting 9.3 billion lei on October 3rd, approximately 4.13 billion lei on October 10, over 1 billion lei on October 23rd and respectively 4.12 billion lei on October 30.
     6-month ROBOR yesterday rose to 2.17% from 2.07%, while 9-month ROBOR rose to 2.21% up from 2,12%, and the 12-month index went from 2.17% to 2.24%.
     ROBOR (Romanian Interbank Offer Rate), which represents the median rate of the interest rate for loans denominated in lei granted on the interbank market, has risen at a quick pace lately, nearing 2% rapidly, up from values below 1% in September.

     Even without the court ruling rendered in first instance by the High Court of Cassation and Justice in the lawsuit of the fictitious hiring at the Child Protection Department of Teleorman the focus on getting all the institutional levers under the - informal, but all the more important - authority of Liviu Dragnea. But, after his conviction on June 21, this trend will speed up. But only through this kind of concentration of power can the president of the Chamber of Deputies hope to change not only the balance of power - which is already favorable to him, even though nothing is final in politics -, but the legislation based on which he has been sentenced, so that he gets exonerated of any legal responsibility. Or, when the powers of the state are concentrated in the hands of one man, democracy, even though it may be only a façade, moves aside to be replaced by autocracy. And in Romania, the temptation of autocracy, hidden under the veil of illiberalism, is more powerful than it has ever been, after the fall of communism. Could this be just an accident owed to the meteoric apparition of Liviu Dragnea?  click here to read the entire article

     HENRY FORD, founder of the American automotive industry

     Fed up with subsidizing the commercial banks with their own money, the Swiss, mobilized through the "Sovereign Money" initiative, have proposed the organization of a Referendum which will be held on Sunday, June 10th 2018 - is a historical referendum, revolutionary for the banking industry, of international resonance -, by which the initiators want to amend the Constitution, which would impose to the commercial banks to grant loans only within the limits of the bank's money, forbidding them to issue scrip money and ensuring the monopoly of the Confederation (of the Swiss state) on issuance of money free of debt.  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
