Al-Naimi’s remarks signalled that Saudi, an Opec swing producer, would not agree to any reduction in output, although some of its 12 members were hoping to cut production by at least 1m barrels of oil per day in order to defend prices. Charles Dumas, chairman and chief economist at Lombard Street Research, said “pressure for prices to fall is the natural result of extremely high prices and slower world growth”. He added that many populous oil producers, including Russia, Nigeria, Mexico, Venezuela, Iran, and perhaps even Saudi Arabia, would be under budget pressure at the current price of around $75. “Some may be tempted to pump more oil, reinforcing downward pressure on prices,” he warned.And Malcolm Graham-Wood, analyst at Hydrocarbon Capital, stated that in a scenario where the Saudis decided to go for market share and there were no production cuts at all, the oil price had “no realistic floor but expect at least $10 off the price”. Graham-Wood suggested that most of the Opec members would opt to cut production with Libya, Iran and Iraq exempt, as they had struggled in the past to meet their quotas.Brent crude fell to $77.70 per barrel yesterday.

What causes clients to be financially stressed? Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Rising incomes don’t keep pace with growing expenses for insolvent debtors Craig Wong Related news Regina Malina, senior director of decision insights at Equifax Canada, says the average delinquency rate for Western Canada is below the national average, but it is rising. Equifax says the rates in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba rose 13.4%, 8.5% and 3.7% respectively. The delinquency rate in Newfoundland and Labrador was up 5.8% from a year ago. “Delinquency rates are an indicator that we follow closely and we are now seeing a negative effect in Western Canada,” Malina said. “The same holds true in Newfoundland — essentially anywhere in the country where the economy is impacted by oil.” Total consumer debt amounted to nearly $1.59 trillion, with nearly two-thirds of that accounted for by mortgage debt. The total borrowing was up from nearly $1.57 trillion in the second quarter of 2015 and $1.51 trillion a year ago. Excluding mortgages, average consumer debt was $21,312 in the third quarter, up from $21,164 in the second quarter and $20,891 a year ago. Borrowing by Canadians and their ability to pay back their debts have been cited as a key risk for the economy. Record low interest rates have helped make it easier for Canadians to borrow more and helped fuel the housing market. However, worries have been raised about what will happen when interest rates eventually start to go up. “Consumer debt levels continue to rise and those numbers are sure to increase following the holidays,” Malina said. “However, despite other market research we’ve seen predicting a boom in spending over the holidays, we expect most Canadians will continue to manage their spending wisely. Demand for new credit has eased off.” Keywords Consumer borrowing and saving Income inequality narrowed amid fiscal supports in 2020: StatsCan Canadians in oil-producing provinces are having a harder time paying their bills, even as the national delinquency rate improves to its lowest level in more than six years. A report by consumer credit monitoring firm Equifax says the national 90-day delinquency rate, excluding mortgages, slipped to 1.05%, down from 1.10% a year ago and the lowest since Equifax began reporting the figures.

Local Government Urged to Preserve and Use Culture CultureSeptember 15, 2009 RelatedLocal Government Urged to Preserve and Use Culture Advertisements RelatedLocal Government Urged to Preserve and Use Culture RelatedLocal Government Urged to Preserve and Use Culture FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister, the Hon. Bruce Golding, has called on local government authorities to make more use of culture in promoting economic activities.He was addressing the opening ceremony of the international local government conference of the Intercity Tangible Cultural Co-operation Network (IICCN), today (September 15), in downtown, Kingston.Noting that the Caribbean had an enormously powerful heritage that was as yet unexploited, the Prime Minister said that the conference provided an opportunity to place the preservation of culture and heritage within the responsibility of local government.“Preserving our culture, our heritage and those things that are important to us is a challenge for local government authorities to assume some responsibility and to play a significant role in transforming that culture into economic activities,” the Prime Minister said, and appealed for greater collaboration between the agencies for cultural preservation.Speaking on behalf of the City of Kingston, co-sponsor of the conference, Mayor Desmond McKenzie highlighted Kingston’s recent cultural investments, including the Bolivar Centre and the refurbishing of the Ward Theatre.Under the theme, ‘Local Government at the Forefront of Preserving our intangible Cultural Heritage’, the two-day conference is a forum aimed at local government administrators across the world to share information, best practices, and experiences; and to explore the methods and means of the capacity building of communities by local governments.
