As Fed Finally Raises Rates

2015 - 12 - 07

Fed bets that low rates’ job benefits outweigh any financial disruption

2004,聯準會開始升息;2007,次級貸款這個核彈爆了,陷入大衰退。

Fed bets that low rates’ job benefits outweigh any financial disruption

一句話解釋次級貸款危機的核心:華爾街一群自以為聰明之人把鉅大風險披上糖衣的衍生性金融商品,並藉此賺取暴利。

2015,聯準會開始升息。

當年的次貸,透過精密惡毒的計算,把愈來愈多錢以貨幣乘數從銀行裡循環生出來、再借給那批信用根本不夠好的人去買房。當利率升、房價跌的時候,結果不言可喻,當然就是一間房一間房因為抵押貸款還不出而被拍賣,讓房價再進一步下跌。

WSJ作了簡單的折線圖,列出過去三次(1994, 1999, 2004)Fed調升利率時,存款、房貸、車貸利率之相應變化。

結論:

1. 存款利率幾乎沒動
2. 房貸利率前二次升,第三次微降
3. 車貸利率三次全升

最近這些年美國搞量化貨鬆,存款利率趨近於0,把天量的錢逼去了根本沒辦法作信用評等的爛公司所發行的高收益(垃圾)債券。這會兒升息,錢要從債券逃出往銀行回存,這種債券馬上要有多少違約、有多少這種爛公司要倒,大家可以拭目以待。

Ps:量化寬鬆(英語:Quantitative easing,簡稱QE)是一種非常規的貨幣政策,其操作是由一國的貨幣管理機構(通常是中央銀行)通過公開市場操作,以提高實體經濟環境中的貨幣供應量。中央銀行的操作,相當於間接增印鈔票。

Lack of Internal Controls Mechanism : Faulty Business Operations

What problem would arise if we do not implement proper internal controls mechanism? The mechanism itself aims to assist business owners to have a full and appropriate control over their company. 談完了內部控制的三大目標、五大要素,我們要來看看如果沒有把內部控制機制做好,到底會遇到什麼樣子的難題呢?內部控制制度本身是希望能幫助企業主對於其企業的營運有良好、全面的掌控,並且有利期監督,並且改良各種制度,所以一旦內部控制制度出了問題或是根本沒有控制制度,基本上各種難題都會應運而生,就像成語所說的「禍不單行」啦。基本上各家企業都會有一定的營運流程,那就是內部控制的一種,當然好壞或是完整與否就不一定了。 在這裡本書想要根據內部控制的三大目標來對讀者們說明,如果企業內部沒有一套好的內部控制,會產生什麼樣子的災難。 內部控制三大目標的第一個目標既然是營運的效果與效率,反面來看,如果企業沒有做好內部控制,企業的營運就會無法達到其效果與效率。那為什麼會因此沒有效果與效率呢?我們用最簡單的舉例方式來告訴大家。 A製造商的業務部門拿到了客戶的訂單,然後交給生產部門來報價給客戶好簽訂契約,但是因為內部溝通上的疏忽,造成生產部門根本不知道有訂單進來而未即時報價,最後因此喪失了這筆交易。這一筆交易可能是數百萬,或者是數千萬的訂單,對於A企業的營運影響至鉅。 讓我們來看看另一個例子,B企業的生產部門收到客戶的桌上型電腦訂單之後就趕緊報價,而且也順利的把客戶所要的產品生產出來了,事後卻發現做出來的電腦主機板與客戶所要求型號不相同,回頭調查時才發現原來是在設計圖的傳遞時發生了錯誤,搞混了各個客戶所提供的設計圖,B公司不但白白生產了一倉庫的電腦,可能還要吃上違約的官司呢!…
