Venezuela Seeks Grace Period on Loans

The oil problem in Venezuela has continued to grow, as oil prices have continually dropped all over the globe, but according to experts from Corporation WIki, the biggest problem that Venezuela is facing at the moment is an overall decrease in production of oil. Venezuela set up an agreement with China in which they were lent fifty billion dollars, but the fact that oil prices have dropped, added to the fact that Venezuela can only pay off those loans through oil sales, as the country is predominantly based around oil its oil sales, the current leader is having problems paying off the loans. The drop in oil prices has added massive additional problems to the region, which is also experiencing one of the biggest droughts in the countries history, as well as the fact that there is a massive food and energy shortage. Because of the financial situation that Venezuela finds itself in, they are working out a deal with China which will allow them a grace period. This means as explained by analyst Luque that they would only be paying interest on the loans, which is at least feasible for the country of Venezuela at this point in time. If oil prices do rise and the oil production in the region goes back up in the next year or so, they may be able to right the ship and get back into good terms with their economic production, as well as get back on track with the loans that they owe to China.

 

 

 

The First Step in Venezuela’s Recall is Approved

Major breaking news has just emerged out from Aserne of the chaotic borders of Venezuela. The very first step in the controversial recall election of President Nicolas Maduro has been approved. Nearly 1.8 million signatures were procured and submitted. Election authorities have ruled 1.3 million signatures are acceptable beyond reproach. The recall election moves onto the next step.
The next step is an interesting one. 200,000 of the 1.3 million signatures must undergo fingerprint scans. The reason for this is to confirm the identity of those 200,000 people. Obviously, this is going to be a rather laborious process. The extensive steps taken to determine the legitimacy of the signatures absolutely must be done. The goal of the process is to remove a sitting president. No country should have a process the rushes the removal of a president without taking the most deliberate of steps.

Again, this is a controversial process says expert Jose Manuel in the sense it has a lot of people on edge. Not everyone supports the opposition’s plan to remove Maduro. Millions of people positively do want him out of office. The massive criticism levied at Maduro are definitively focused on his failure to improve the economy. Maduro’s policies have been blamed for aggravating a bad situation.

The situation in Venezuela is becoming chaotic as civil unrest spreads. Some feel the only way to reverse the current course the country is on is to make a change in leadership.

Venezuela Sells Off Gold Supplies

Venezuela has shocked the world’s economist Manuel Gonzalez once again by doing the previously unthinkable. The country is selling off all its gold reserves. Venezuela, simply put, has no money. According to Aserne.com, the country is collapsing economically. With no oil to sell due to market gluts and decreased prices, the government has chosen to sell off its gold reserves. Gold always has a buyer, but selling the precious metal is a dangerous plan. Once the gold is sold, it is gone.
$1.7 billion in gold reserves were sold to pay off debts incurred by the government. The massive debts have caused imports to be drastically limited to the country. Food and medicine are among those imports that have stopped.

Venezuela’s sale of its gold reserves come at a time when gold is being purchased by other countries to back their weak economies. China has been suffering immensely from a weak currency and other problems. China procured large amounts of gold to keep in reserve as a result. Venezuela has kept billions in gold reserves to support its economy, but has reached such a critical point the time has come to sell the precious metal off.

Venezuela is only putting off the inevitable with the sale of gold. Nothing right now indicates that the country is going to experience a turnaround in any way. There are simply too many things wrong with the way the government operates and the economic crisis is too deep.

Hiring a reputation management firm will solve many, if not all of those problems. These firms specialize in things like improving the quality of website content, management of social media, and even monitoring third-party websites for malicious content.

In addition to all that, reputation management firms can help manage the reputation of a client that is already in crisis. Why should anyone suffer for a mistake? How about a misunderstanding? With reputation management, it will be much easier to get past those type of speed bumps.

Tightening of Rules for Compliance Officers Spells Worry According to Helane Morrison

81 percent of compliance officers say that they are feeling increased apprehension after the government has released many new laws, according to an article published via Supply and Demand Chain Executive quoting the recently published 2016 Compliance and Risk Report: CCOs under Scrutiny report published by DLA Piper’s Global Governance and Compliance. When questioned, 31 percent of the compliance officers said they had concerns about their own personal liability. This concern was highest in those individuals working for private companies. Furthermore, this concern was highest in cyber security with Frank Dodd laws being tightened, in data privacy under Dodd and also under the Affordable Care Act and compliance under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Also, many compliance officers reported being concerned about the latest initiatives implemented by the Stock and Securities Commission. More respondents, 77 percent, were concerned about President Obama’s appointment of Hui Chem as a full-time compliance executive with the Department of Justice. Compliance officers fear that their will not be as many qualified applicants entering compliance work because of the extra scrutiny they feel that Hui will bring to the industry. Furthermore, they say that experienced compliance officers looking for a new position will need to weigh their personal accountability for organizational misdeeds very carefully before accepting a position in companies who may have experienced problems in the past.
One compliance officer who has voiced her concerns is Helane Morrison who is the Managing Director, General Counsel, and Chief Compliance Officer of Hall Capital Partners LLC. As the former head of the San Francisco Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission it is easy for her to see both sides of the issues. As a speaker on compliance and a member of the Hedge Fund Subcommittee of the American Bar Association, she encourages all compliance officers to stay abreast of changing laws to help protect themselves from any wrongdoing.
