OECD: US to avoid double dip

first_imgMonday 20 September 2010 9:34 pm whatsapp OECD: US to avoid double dip A generation of young Americans face a bleak future of unemployment but the US economy will avoid a double-dip recession, according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).The Paris-based organisation yesterday said it could be 2013 before employment returns to pre-recession levels after peaking at 10 per cent of the labour force in 2009.However, OECD secretary general Angel Gurria said: “We don’t see a risk of a double-dip recession. That said, we don’t see either a recovery that is strong enough to put a significant dent in unemployment.”The OECD report projects US economic growth at a sluggish 2.6 per cent in 2010.It added that because of the degree of slack in the economy and low inflation, current low interest rates were appropriate. But it urged policymakers to continue planning for a quick withdrawal of “the very accommodative stance of monetary policy” as soon as conditions permit in order to avoid spiralling inflation.An announcement by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) yesterday backed up the findings. The organisation said the US economy officially exited recession in June 2009, making it the longest downturn since the Great Depression.However, while the committee said the economy has not returned to operating at normal capacity, it effectively ruled out the possibility of a double dip recession.A spokesman said: “Any future downturn of the economy would be a new recession and not a continuation of the 2007 recession.” Share whatsapp KCS-content center_img More From Our Partners Mark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comlast_img read more

Additional restructuring is required however, notably at Corsair (possibly£60m) and in the UK (around £20m). High levels of exceptional costs are a sadly recurrent feature.CHRIS ALEXANDER| BNP PARIBASThis morning’s update strikes a more confident posture than that from Cook last week. In bookings terms, the summer was OK, but winter bookings are better – TUI has probably out-performed Cook and raised market share. In the near term we see few catalysts to lead to a material revaluation.RICHARD CURR| PRIME MARKETSTui Travel has well and truly caught the market napping this morning, with a real humdinger of a trading update. the group has taken advantage of tough trading conditions to build market share as smaller operators struggle and fail, and with net debt reduced and positive noises for summer 2011, shareholders should see some decent gains in coming weeks.

If they choose to take them then can then drop them off at the airport at a special charity pick-up point.Travita’s team was among 150 people from 18 countries who took part in the one-day hackathon with the aim of creating new digital tools and apps for global travel.Travita has been created by Sameen Islam, Kristina Semenyuk and Jaykumar Pradeep Rawal, three 19-year-old students at Queen Mary’s University, London, and 35-year-old Katie Rushton, who has a background working for start-ups.Sabre is a technology provider to the travel and tourism industry. Greg Webb, one of five judges and president at Sabre Travel Network, said:“We chose Travita as our overall winner because it displayed the most unique use of technology that can provide a new way for frequent travellers to give back to the community. It’s something we’ve never seen before and something we believe will go a long way.”Here is the demo of the app in its current format (no sound):[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLp7hI46W8k[/youtube]Main image: Airport departure board by Matej Kastelic on Shutterstock.com About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

ASA  Urges Congress to Include Increased Truck Capacity in 2015 Highway…

first_img By Gary Truitt – Feb 20, 2015 Home Indiana Agriculture News ASA  Urges Congress to Include Increased Truck Capacity in 2015 Highway Bill SHARE ASA  Urges Congress to Include Increased Truck Capacity in 2015 Highway Bill Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter The American Soybean Association (ASA) is touting a research project by the Soy Transportation Coalition (STC) that examines the effects of increasing truck weight limits on federal highways. The project, titled, “Heavier Semis: A Good Idea?” was funded by the soybean checkoff and is an update of a 2009 report that looks at the impact of increasing truck weight limits on federal roads and bridges from the current 80,000 lbs., with a five axle configuration to 97,000 lbs., with the addition of a sixth axle. The analysis specifically looked at the impacts on motorist safety, infrastructure wear and tear, and potential cost savings and efficiency gains for agriculture and the U.S. economy.Demand for trucking is projected to continue to increase in the U.S. in coming years and ASA is urging Congress to increase investments in every facet of our transportation infrastructure, including roads and bridges, locks and dams, ports, and measures that will improve rail service as well. Increasing trucking capacity and efficiency is a logical and essential step to meeting our current and future transportation needs.The STC study provides additional support and justification that increasing trucking capacity can be done with no adverse impact to safety while providing significant economic benefits. Increasing truck weight limits on federal highways will not compromise safety. First and foremost, allowing six axle, 97,000 lbs. semis will result in fewer semis on the road compared to the status quo and fewer trucks on the road will result in fewer accidents and injuries. The studies and analysis also show that the braking distance of a six axle truck weighing 97,000 lbs. is the same as a five axle, 80,000 lbs. truck. These are not just theories and studies, but results that have been proven by real world experience in other countries such as Canada and the United Kingdom that have implemented higher truck weight limits and seen a reduction in truck related accidents. The STC study projects such an approach in the U.S. will result in 98 fewer motorist fatalities by 2022.The study further highlights how a six axle, 97,000 lbs. semi will result in a reduction of weight per tire of 35 lbs. compared to a five axle, 80,000 lbs. semi – reducing wear and tear on the nation’s roads. Many states already allow weights higher than 80,000 lbs on state roads.For transporting soybeans and soy products, allowing six axle, 97,000 lbs. semis will result in 1.2 million fewer truck trips, 5.5 million fewer gallons of fuel consumed, 56 thousand fewer tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and between $11 million – $28 million in reduced fuel costs. The use of a six axle, 97,000 lbs. semi will enable a farmer to transport at minimum an additional 183 bushels of soybeans per load. By 2022, this will annually save soybean farmers 602,000 truck trips, 1.7 million gallons of fuel, and between $4 million – $8 million in reduced fuel costs.As Congress considers reauthorization of the Surface Transportation bill (aka the Highway bill) this year, ASA urges and will continue to advocate for the inclusion of provisions to allow states to adopt increased truck weight limits of 97,000 lbs. for six axle trucks on federal interstates. It’s safer, more efficient, and necessary to meet the growing transportation needs for soybean farmers and many other U.S. industries.The full study, “Heavier Semis: A Good Idea?” can be accessed at www.soytransportation.org.

These were paid by the Department of the Taoiseach last April.Documents obtained by the paper under the Freedom of Information Act show the department paid €175,125 to solicitors relating to the High Court case and €66,550 arising from the Supreme Court appeal.last_img read more
