Inflation is coming back! That’s why I’m buying UK shares

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! UK shares are in a holding pattern right now, as investors wait to see what will happen with the post-lockdown recovery. Optimists believe that once people are released to go spending again, the global economy will spring into life. Especially when all the trillions of dollars of stimulus pumped out during the pandemic catches fire.Pessimists, of course, take a different view. They fear the stimulus has been overdone, particularly US President Joe Biden’s $1trn recovery plan, which comes on top of the $900bn lined up before Christmas. This could whip up inflation and force central bankers to increase interest rates, thereby choking off the recovery.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Fears of inflation are growing amid a sharp rise in US bond yields. Right now, 10-year US Treasuries yield 1.62%. That’s low by historical standards, but means they’ve tripled since May last year. Bond investors expect inflation, and are demanding higher interest to cover the risk.I’m banking on UK sharesInflation will be bad news for bonds too. As yields rise, prices fall. Bonds pay a fixed rate of interest, which is less attractive when prices are rising.Higher inflation would also be bad news for cash. Savings accounts already struggle to keep up with today’s consumer price inflation rate of 0.7%. Imagine if inflation was 3%, 4% or 5%? True, savings rates will increase if the Bank of England lifts base rates, but there’s likely to be a major lag when the real value of your savings will be falling at an even faster rate than today.I believe UK shares offer a much better way of protecting your wealth against the ravages of inflation. That’s why I’d ignore bond funds and the Cash ISA, and buy UK shares for this year’s ISA portfolio instead.Right now, the Treasury is predicting GDP growth of 4.4% this year, followed by an incredible 7.3% next year. That will be a huge boost for UK shares, because if people are spending more, businesses will be making more money.Inflation fears growBritons are sitting on an estimated £1.2trn lockdown cash pile, according to asset management group Janus Henderson. Supermarkets, clothing stores, travel firms and the leisure & hospitality sector should reap the benefit when people splurge. As will the big banks and oil companies, which are heavily represented on the FTSE 100.However, inflation isn’t all good news for UK shares. If it races past 5%, businesses will be reluctant to invest, as they may not get a real return. Higher rates also increase borrowing costs. Utility bills and other household expenses will rise. Ultimately, this could squeeze consumer spending, especially if wages fall behindValue stocks do better when inflation is high, growth stocks do worse. Hence the recent sell off in Tesla and others tech growth heroes. So, I might rebalance my UK shareholdings by adding some value. Raging, uncontrolled inflation would be bad news for everybody.

Ireland: Five things we learned v Scotland

first_imgDUBLIN, IRELAND – FEBRUARY 02: Jamie Heaslip of Ireland charges upfield during the RBS Six Nations match between Ireland and Scotland at the Aviva Stadium on February 2, 2014 in Dublin, Ireland. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) French fancy: Sexton showed no signs of fatigue during Ireland’s 28-6 win over ScotlandBy Claire Glancy Stepping in: Heaslip was comfortable in the captain’s roleCompetition for placesFor the first time in a long time, players are not going to be guaranteed their position in the starting XV or matchday squad. Understandably the likes of Paul O’Connell or Sean O’Brien would be expected to regain their place once fit but I suppose the point is that there doesn’t have to be the sense of panic such absences would previously have brought given the performances of their replacements, Dan Tuohy and Chris Henry. The same goes for the front row. Schmidt had the luxury of bringing on three younger, less experienced players but neither the scrum nor the team suffered as a result. An international squad should not be a case of 15 players plus the rest, to be successful everyone involved needs to know that they have a chance of playing. Schmidt is spreading that belief, from the likes of Andrew Trimble making his first Six Nations start in two years to Martin Moore winning his first cap or Simon Zebo waiting in the flanks to be recalled.French fatigue hasn’t hit SextonThere has been much concern about Jonathan Sexton since his move to Racing Métro. While his compatriots like Jamie Heaslip and Brian O’Driscoll have made between seven and ten appearances for Leinster, the French are determined to get their money’s worth with the fly-half who has featured 19 times for his club already this season. Sexton has been refreshingly honest about the trials of his French move and even warned his international team-mates against it, but if homesickness has been a problem for the him it’s worked to Ireland’s advantage because on Sunday he relished being back on home soil. There is no sign of fatigue in Sexton. He’s energized, excited and now even more experienced from his time in the Top 14.Break-fast: Healy made his mark against ScotlandConsistency is key Wales will be a greater physical and mental testWith only six days to recover, Ireland have to switch their minds quickly on to the challenges that await them on Saturday. The firepower of Jamie Roberts, George North and co will put the Irish defence under pressure, while the Welsh back row will be out to stop Sexton developing any attacking pattern for Ireland. Defensively Ireland held up against Scotland but the coaches will need to get Luke Marshall and Brian O’Driscoll into the attacking game more often if they are to break down the Welsh. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It’s a cliché we’ve heard repeated by Ian McGeechan on Lions tours and Stuart Lancaster at the beginning of his term with England but after the lows of last year, Ireland had to get some pride back in the jersey. They’ve started this tournament with a win, however they managed the same last season against Wales at the Millennium Stadium before their tournament ground to a halt at half-time in that match. It is clear to see the focus and technical detail they are applying to the set piece. The forwards seem to understand their roles and in Cian Healy, Ireland have a world class prop forward. Whether it be the scrum or line out, Ireland now have a set-piece that has the potential to challenge any side in the world. Even in the absence of Paul O’Connell, the pack wasn’t without its leaders with Rory Best and all of the back-rowers having skippered both club and country.Schmidt’s scheme taking shapeElements of Joe Schmidt’s style are starting to show, particularly in the way Ireland are looking to attack: offloads, interplay between forwards and aggressive running lines from starter plays. Sexton is mixing up his game and providing quick ball to the outside backs through fast passing and clever wrap around lines – all of which will continue to challenge defences. A willingness to build pressure by looking to score tries rather than just take three points shows an air of confidence and self-belief amongst the team.last_img read more

Police terror, COVID-19 are women’s issues

first_imgJustice for Breonna Taylor protest, Louisville, Ky., May 29.These slightly edited remarks were given by Monica Moorehead at a June 7 International Women’s Alliance webinar: “Building our militant global women’s movement to resist imperialism in the time of COVID-19.” This series of International Women’s Alliance webinars could not have come at a more opportune time. A wave of rebellion is sweeping the globe. Who would have thought six months ago that the epicenter of this rebellion would be the U.S. — the imperialist belly of the beast? It is both shocking and not surprising that this is happening. The billionaire ruling class, their Wall Street investors and the Trump government are having nightmares, fighting among themselves, knowing that their entire system is under attack — first for ignoring all the early signs of the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by the lack of testing and health care for everyone, including essential workers — and with the unemployment rate approaching Great Depression levels, not counting 2 million incarcerated workers in prisons and detention centers, undocumented migrant workers, working-class and oppressed youth. Workers are resisting with strikes, sit-ins, car caravans and even resisting armed neofascists who want to reopen businesses.  The second pandemic is the rebellion ignited on May 25 by the horrific torture and police lynching of the 46-year-old Black man in Minneapolis, George Floyd. It took five days for the cop who asphyxiated Floyd to be charged and several days later for the three other cops to be arrested. That rebellion will reach two weeks tomorrow (June 8). This rebellion against police terror has brought together Black, Latinx, Indigenous and white people of all generations, genders and abilities with marches, rallies, shutting down bridges, interstates, carrying out civil disobedience and expropriation — all in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, with people risking their health to be in the streets in all 50 states, in large and small cities. This inspiring rebellion has spread around the world on almost every continent in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, which is an international struggle. Underneath these two unprecedented pandemics is a dying capitalist economic system based on making profits, not meeting human needs. Capitalism has been in a permanent economic crisis since the housing market crash in 2008. It never has and never will fully recover. This crisis is reflected in low-wage jobs, lack of housing, closings of hospitals and clinics, mass incarceration, a rise in domestic and sexual violence, attacks on reproductive justice, police brutality, environmental racism, lack of healthy foods, etc.  For working-class people and people of color, there has always been a generational social crisis for years before 2008. But COVID-19 has made these issues more acute, especially with the genocidal numbers of people of color dying, at a rate 50 percent higher than whites due to institutionalized racism. Women are resisting on all frontsIn my organization, International Working Women’s Coalition, our main slogan is “Every issue is a woman’s issue.” We have a 10-point program that begs the question: Can we live without all the basic human needs like health care, jobs, housing, food and more? We say that in order to win these rights, you have to unite and fight capitalism and imperialism, which propagates white supremacy in all forms. And patriarchy and gender oppression are used to divide women and all sectors of our class.Who are on the front lines in the COVID-19 crisis? Mainly health care workers, the majority being women who put their lives on the line to save lives, but are dying because they don’t have personal protective necessities, access to ventilators and other lifesaving equipment. Women, especially women of color, have seen their numbers swell as incarcerated workers. Many are single mothers.Women have also been victims of police violence, like Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black EMT worker, shot eight times by Louisville, Ky., police while sleeping this past March. Her 27th birthday was on June 5. She is just the latest victim of police terror. There’s Sandra Bland in Texas, Rekia Boyd in Chicago, Shantel Davis and Kyam Livingston in New York, and countless other women of color whose lives have been tragically cut short. None of the police involved have been arrested or charged.  But women are resisting on all fronts. Women of color, Black, Latinx and Indigenous, as well as anti-racist whites, a vast majority of them young, are on the front lines of this rebellion, not backing down from the police. Health care workers are rallying and marching against their terrible conditions, fighting both COVID and saying Black Lives Matter. Women are on the frontlines fighting these and other neoliberal policies emanating from the imperialist system both at home and abroad. The COVID-19 virus may be keeping a lot of us off the streets due to age and preexisting health conditions, but we can still show solidarity in other ways to fight any isolation, including women’s assemblies. We need to agree on some global united days of action on issues that most impact women, because despite where we live and struggle, we face the same struggles and the same fight against the same oppressive system. A good start is to defend this global rebellion against police and military terror, however long it lasts, because it is a woman’s issue. As the Assata Shakur chant says, as it applies to women and gender-oppressed people, “We have nothing to lose but our chains.”  Monica Moorehead is an executive committee member of IWA. She is also a coordinator of the International Working Women’s Day Coalition in New York City.  Moorehead is a managing editor of Workers World newspaper and a contributing writer for the 1995 pamphlet, “Capitalism’s war on women: Why the system is responsible for violence against women.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Adam Schiff (D-CA), a senior member of the Intelligence Committee, issued the following statement in response to allegations that the IRS has engaged in the targeted scrutiny of certain tax-exempt 501(c)4 social welfare groups:The Internal Revenue Service must enforce the tax code in a neutral and nonpartisan way. Any politicization of tax enforcement is abhorrent and should be viewed as a grave offense. These allegations must be investigated to the fullest extent and dealt with appropriately.“I first raised the issue of selective enforcement by the IRS during the Bush Administration, when the agency audited All Saints Episcopal Church of Pasadena based on the content of a particular church service. After a former pastor gave an anti-Iraq War sermon, All Saints became the target of an aggressive IRS investigation in which the church’s tax-exempt status was threatened. At the time, I could find only one Republican colleague, Rep. Walter Jones, that would join me in calling for an investigation. The IRS targeting of certain organizations on the basis of their ideology is anathema, deeply chilling to free speech and cannot be tolerated.“The need to investigate these allegations thoroughly and to hold accountable those responsible, however, must not obscure the fact that many of the so-called “social welfare” organizations which have multiplied since Citizens United are a sham that should lose their tax exempt status. Some of these organizations are undeniably and overwhelmingly political, and merely seek to use the tax code to shelter their operations from scrutiny and to avoid disclosure of their donors. The IRS must enforce the law fairly and with no regard for ideology, but they must enforce the law.“Congress should do what I called for back in 2005 – undertake a thorough review of how the IRS interprets and enforces the law when it comes to tax-exempt organizations, and examine whether existing laws and regulations need to be updated to draw a brighter line. Congress should also act to require disclosure of contributions to remove the incentive for partisan organizations to abuse the tax code for the sole purpose of avoiding transparency in the political process.” EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 28 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it First Heatwave Expected Next Week More Cool Stuff Subscribe Community Newslast_img read more

We have a progressive Finance Plan, which seeks to end the crisis in housing and the crisis in health.” Fianna Fáil will deliver for older people. A key priority for us in government will be to ensure that older people have the income and resources that they require to live full and independent lives.”“We will increase the State pension by €25 over the lifetime of the next government. We will protect the Free Travel Scheme; allocate an additional €20million to Housing Adaptation Grants and provide an additional €5million home care hours over the next five years.“Fianna Fáil will also ensure that those who are 65 but not yet entitled to a State pension will not have to sign on the dole. We will provide a transition payment, defer the increase in the State pension age and establish a Commission on Pensions to examine this issue.”Deputy O’Dea also dipped into his party’s shopping list to promise a change in direction on Housing with a return to days of home ownership.“We will return to building public housing. We will build 50,000 more affordable homes and 50,000 more social homes. We will increase the Help to Buy Scheme to help First Time Buyers. We will introduce a savers scheme that gives First Time Buyers a helping hand of €10,000 towards their deposit.”And he says that Fianna Fáil have big plans to tackle the Health Service.“A lack of resources in our Health Service is failing our most vulnerable particularly in the Mid-West with the A&E crisis at UHL. We in Fianna Fáil will add five million more Homecare Support hours, hire up to 1000 new consultants and hire 4000 new nurses and double the NTPF to €200m.”And that’s not all.In relation to childcare, Deputy O’Dea claims Fianna Fáil would increase State support to take some of the financial pressure off and ease the worries of mothers and fathers by quadrupling the weekly subsidy for every child under three in a crèche from €20 to €80.“Under Fianna Fáil, we will introduce a new €2000 per year tax credit for workers whose child is being minded by a registered child minder – equivalent to €166 per month and extend the successful ECCE scheme, introduced originally by Fianna Fáil for three to five-year-olds by two weeks per year to 40 weeks. We would also increase maternity and paternity leave to a total of 34 weeks – to be shared at the discretion of parents,” he concluded.last_img read more
