Russia tightens squeeze on Ukraine with gas price rise

(Reuters) – Russian natural gas producer Gazprom announced a more than 40 percent increase in the price of gas for Ukraine on Tuesday, stepping up economic pressure on Kiev in its crisis in relations with Moscow. Price rows have in the past led to cuts in Russian gas supplies to Ukraine and decreases in onward deliveries to Europe, but this time the financial blow to Kiev is set to be cushioned by a new International Monetary Fund loan package. Ukraine will now have to pay $385.5 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas in the second quarter, an increase from the $268.5 agreed in December and higher than the…

Russian prime minister flaunts grip on Crimea with visit

Medvedev chairs a government meeting in the Crimean city of Simferopol

(Reuters) – Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev flaunted Russia’s grip on Crimea on Monday by flying to the region and announcing plans to turn it into a special economic zone, defying Western demands to hand the region back to Ukraine. The visit, hours after Russia held talks on Ukraine with the United States, is likely to anger Kiev and the West, which accuse president Vladimir Putin of illegally seizing the Black Sea peninsula after a March 16 referendum they say was a sham. Shortly after landing in Crimea’s main city of Simferopol with many members of his cabinet, Medvedev chaired a Russian government meeting attended by…

Dépréciation accelérée de la gourde…

Haitian Money

Le président de l’association des économistes haïtiens,  Eddy Labossière,  a déploré jeudi la dépréciation accélérée de la gourde par rapport au dollar US. Il faut aujourd’hui 45 gourdes pour se procurer un dollar. Le docteur en économie explique que l’appareil productif haïtien n’est pas performant pour produire des biens et services  et ainsi  permettre de limiter les importations. Le modèle mis en place ne peut   produire des biens et services même pour la consommation intérieure, a-t-il dénoncé,  soulignant le pays  dispose d’une économie  presque totalement dépendante  des autres économies pour la consomation intérieure.

Putin tells West Russia will develop own card payment system

(Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Russia would develop its own credit card system to reduce reliance on Western-based companies and soften the potential blow from U.S. and EU sanctions. Putin voiced his support for plans described by senior officials to create a domestic-based system in response to restrictions placed on Russian banks last week by Visa and MasterCard, which are widely use by Russians. “We certainly must do this, and we will do it,” Putin told senior Russian lawmakers during a meeting that mainly focused on efforts to integrate the Crimea region after he signed legislation to make…

(Reuters) – Ukraine won a $27-billion international financial lifeline on Thursday, rushed through in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, as Moscow’s economy minister spoke of the cost of military action in its former Soviet neighbor. The International Monetary Fund announced agreement on a $14-18 billion standby credit for Kiev in return for tough economic reforms that will unlock further aid from the European Union, the United States and other lenders over two years. The IMF deal, to be approved by the global agency’s board next month, was a political boost for the pro-Western government that replaced ousted Russian-backed President Viktor Yanukovich last…

(Reuters) – The United States and the European Union agreed on Wednesday to work together to prepare possible tougher economic sanctions in response to Russia’s behavior in Ukraine, including on the energy sector, and to make Europe less dependent on Russian gas. U.S. President Barack Obama said after a summit with top EU officials that Russian President Vladimir Putin had miscalculated if he thought he could divide the West or count on its indifference over his annexation of Crimea. Leaders of the Group of Seven major industrial powers decided this week to hold off on sanctions targeting Moscow’s economy unless…

Limes bite back, as prices rise 2,400%


Palm Beach Post Web Staff Mojitos, margaritas, key lime pie, ceviche… even the lime wedge on your Corona, all are at risk. Is the lime-pocalypse far behind? About 98% of limes consumed in the U.S. come from Mexico. But our neighbors to the south are feeling seriously squeezed by a shortage, according to NPR. Mexican growers blame too much rain, and a bacteria for the poor crop. There, limes are selling for 50 pesos a kilo — about $1.75 a pound, or three times the normal price. U.S. stores are charging an average of 53 cents for one lime, compared with…

U.S. surprises with 5 million barrel from crude oil reserve sale

Barricades protect the entrance to the U.S. Department of Energy's Stategic Petroleum Reserve in Bryan Mound

(Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Energy will sell up to 5 million barrels of crude oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, a move it said was to test the capabilities of the nation’s emergency stockpile in a rapidly changing oil market. In the first sale from the reserve since 1990 that is specifically designed as a test, the department will offer sour crude from its West Hackberry and Big Hill sites on the U.S. Gulf coast, with bids due March 14. Surging U.S. shale oil production has changed the logistics of U.S. crude markets. Instead of moving oil from the Gulf…

Russia pushes on with gas pipeline despite EU delaying talks

(Reuters) – Russia’s Gazprom, disregarding European Commission plans to delay talks, said it expected to sign deals this month on building its major South Stream pipeline to carry gas to central and southern Europe without crossing Ukraine. It made the announcement a day after the Commission said it would postpone talks with Gazprom over South Stream which still requires European Union legislation, including exemptions from rules that limit pipeline ownership and require access be provided to other gas firms. The bloc, already concerned to reduce the Russian state-controlled company’s dominance over its energy supply, especially in eastern Europe, has been further…
