Ag Forecast Rescheduled

first_imgThe University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences has rescheduled its Georgia Ag Forecast seminar at Unicoi State Park in White County, Georgia, for Wednesday, Feb. 17. This agricultural economic outlook event for northeast Georgia was originally scheduled for Jan. 22, but was canceled due to winter weather. Those who were registered for the Jan. 22 date have the option of transferring their registration to the new date or receiving a refund. For those who had not registered for an Ag Forecast seminar yet, this will be the last chance to get an in-person look at what 2016 holds in terms of commodity prices and farm policy. At the annual Georgia Ag Forecast, economists from the university’s Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development (CAED) and from the college’s Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics deliver an economic outlook that focuses on Georgia’s major commodities and the way that global markets, weather patterns and historical trends will affect those commodities. In addition to the economic outlook, CAED Director Kent Wolfe and fellow UGA agricultural economist Sharon P. Kane will give a briefing on the Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption, often referred to as “GATE,” and how it is reflected in county sales tax revenue. For an overview of what UGA economists said at the other Georgia Ag Forecast seminar locations this year, see the UGA Cooperative Extension news article, “Encouraging beef, peanut prices expected in 2016.”For more information or to register for the February 17 event, visit read more

Shumlin calls for a Senate vote on operation of Vermont Yankee before March break

first_imgSenate President Pro Tem Peter Shumlin today announced that the Senate will vote before the town meeting break on whether or not relicensing the Vermont Yankee nuclear power station to operate beyond its scheduled closing date is in the best interest of Vermonters. “It is the responsibility of the General Assembly to vote on the continued operation of Vermont Yankee,” Shumlin said in a prepared statement. “We have a responsibility to provide Vermonters and Vermont businesses a direction for our energy future, provide our electric utilities with sufficient time to secure delivery of energy, and in the event that the plant ceases operating as scheduled in 2012, provide the workers at Vermont Yankee adequate time to secure employment.”  Shumlin has asked the Senate Finance Committee to take up the legislation relating to the continued operation of the Vermont Yankee nuclear energy generating plant this week.  The full Senate is expected to consider the question of continued operation before legislators return home for town meeting. “Vermonter’s deserve better than what Entergy Louisiana has to offer.  The reactor is too old to operate reliably past its scheduled closure in 2012.  The corporation has misled our public officials and the people of Vermont,” said Senator Peter Shumlin.  “Vermonter’s confidence in Vermont Yankee has been further marred by Entergy’s attempt to create a debt ridden spin off corporation to take ownership of the plant.  The cleanup fund is already more than half a billion dollars short and Vermonters cannot afford a corporation that may shift that cost to ratepayers.  There is also frustration with Entergy/Enexus’ power purchase proposal, which would raise Vermonter’s electricity rates by nearly 50 percent and provide us with only 11 percent of our power. Operating Vermont Yankee beyond its scheduled closing date of March 12, 2012, is not in the best interests of Vermonters and unnecessary delay is an irresponsible option for our energy future.”Vermont Town Meeting day is March 2 this year.Source: Shumlin’s office. 2.16.2010last_img read more

Fed aims ‘bazooka’ at coronavirus to backstop economy

first_img“It’s their bazooka moment,” said Russell Price, chief economist at Ameriprise Financial Services in Troy, Michigan. “It’s their ‘we’ll do whatever it takes’ moment which should be a sign to financial markets and investors that the Fed will provide any and all liquidity necessary to support the economy through this period.”Under the new programs, the Fed will lend against student loans, credit card loans, and US government backed-loans to small businesses, and buy bonds of larger employers and make loans to them in what amounts to four years of bridge financing.Nearly a third of the US population is subject to new rules that close non-essential businesses and discourage people from leaving their homes in order to slow the spread of the virus. Hundreds of thousands of people have already filed for unemployment insurance in California alone, the state’s governor said at the weekend, and many analysts are projecting declines in economic output next quarter that are far worse than the steepest drop during the Great Recession.A Reuters poll of economists estimated initial jobless claims rose an astounding 1 million last week, and some believe the number could be higher. The US Federal Reserve on Monday rolled out an extraordinary new array of programs aimed at blunting the “severe disruptions” to the economy caused by the coronarvirus outbreak, backstopping an unprecedented range of credit for households, small businesses and major employers.In a series of actions the Fed agreed to historical measures that would see it for the first time back the purchases of corporate bonds and direct loans to companies, expand its asset holding by as much as needed to stabilize financial markets, and roll out “soon” a program to get credit to small and medium-sized business.It marks both a massive intervention into the US economy by the central bank, and an quickly conceived move to adapt to the fact that the US economy may need to shut its doors to keep people safe. Stocks initially rose, then fell after the Fed announcement. US Treasury yields ticked higher.The move helped lower risk premiums in key corporate credit markets that have been disrupted in the outbreak, analysts said.In a statement the Fed said the effort, approved unanimously by members of the Federal Open Market Committee, was taken because “it has become clear that our economy will face severe disruptions” as a result of the health crisis.“This is the Fed’s all-out effort to ensure that the business sector and households can continue on,” said Sam Bullard, senior economist for Wells Fargo Securities.“The Fed is doing everything they can” to keep markets functioning smoothly after economic activity was disrupted, he said “We take this as a huge easing.”Republicans and Democrats failed over the weekend to reach a deal on a $1 trillion-plus coronavirus stimulus package.“We’ve known that the magnitude of help needed has been massive and growing for days now,” said Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst of Bankrate. “The Federal Reserve continues to do all it can to keep markets operating. Now, the spotlight is on elected leaders to do their jobs as well.”Topics :last_img read more
