Freight costs to blame for spike in global inflation, not oil – Botha

Engineering News Online Audio Articles

Ever since global inflation started heading north at an alarming rate, much of the conventional wisdom on the causes of this trend has pointed to energy prices, especially gas, oil and petroleum, says Dr Roelof Botha, economic adviser to the Optimum Investment Group. Also, when analysing the composition of the basket of goods and services that form the basis for the calculation of the consumer price indices (CPIs) in South Africa and most of its key trading partners, these prices certainly stand out, as do some food prices, he adds. However, when comparing the current upward phase of the commodity price cycle during the first six months of the year with the previous surge in prices that was recorded between 2011 and 2013, it becomes clear that oil is not the culprit. Rather, it is the cost of shipping commodities such as oil, petroleum and all other traded goods from one port to another that is to blame, notes Botha. “Oil from Saudi Arabia has to travel almost 10 000 km before it reaches the Port of Cape Town.” Logistics data tracked by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development estimates that the oceans carries more than 80% of the world's traded goods by volume and 70% by value, most of which sail inside 40-foot-long steel containers. There are dozens of container ships that are the length of four soccer fields and the world's largest one, the Ever Alot, is the height of a 22-story building and can carry 240 000 t of cargo. The ongoing supply chain disruptions caused by the Covid pandemic and now exacerbated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, have provided a stark reminder of the strategic economic importance of maritime container trade, says Botha. “The lockdown restrictions induced by the pandemic not only blocked supply chains in ports around the globe, but it also did so in an errant manner. “When one port reopened, some of its destination ports had been closed and this pattern kept on repeating itself for the better part of two years.” Since the gradual demise of harsh lockdowns, pent-up demand from economic stimulus programmes was simply too much to handle. The results were fairly predictable, namely long delays in getting goods to customers and an increase in the cost of getting them shipped. However, the extent of the cost increases caught the whole world by surprise, says Botha. Ultimately, too few ships and an explosive recovery of demand conspired to send freight costs into orbit, with the Statista Freight Rate Index (SFRI) increasing from $1 262 a container during the third quarter of 2019, to $10 362 in the third quarter of 2021 – an unheard of increase of 721%. The cost of shipping bulk commodities spiked even more, notes Botha. Research by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) shows that the inflationary impact of these higher shipping costs is not likely to recede before the end of the year. A little bit of good news is the fact that shipping costs have come down since the fourth quarter of 2021, with the SFRI standing at $7 051 at the end of June this year. Research by the IMF confirms that the trend of rising shipping costs has affected inflation in some countries more than others, says Botha. In general, countries with a high import propensity and a relatively high trade deficit are bound to witness larger increases in inflation, while land-locked countries and low-income countries are also likely to see a higher turning point for their respective CPIs. This correlation provides a hint to South Africa's current CPI, which is significantly lower than that of many of its key trading partners, notes Botha. South Africa is classified as an upper-middle income country and has experienced record trade surpluses since 2020. Despite a need to enhance their efficiency, the country also has six major commercial ports.

In today's Money Tips Podcast: Banks short-changing savers Investors turn to property for better returns Walmart issues profit warning as ordinary people in America struggle with cost-of-living crisis. Property prices are falling according to official figures. High Street UK banks, like Natwest, have failed to pass on several Bank of England base lending rate rises to millions of savers. Base rates have been steadily rising from a low of 0.10% in October 2021, which banks have not passed on to savers. At the same time, they are INCREASING interest rate for borrowers who owe money on their already expensive credit cards. NatWest has just announced a 2.5% increase on their credit card from 15.756 to 18.276, an effective increase of 15%. The current UK base lending rate is 1.25%. Credit card companies were charging similar rates when base rats were over 10%, which means they are profiteering from people's misery. Meanwhile, banks leaving millions of savers out of pocket in accounts paying almost ZERO interest – which means their savings are LOSING 9.4% (the official UK inflation rate) every year. Savers should vote with their feet and move their money to obtain better deals – if they can find a local branch! Years of artificially low interest rates have pushed millions of investors into buy-to-let property, where the can receive much higher income, as well as growth on their capital. Open House South Herts is advertising property deals in the north of the UK from just £30,000 asking price with yields of between 10 and 15%. – see https://www.facebook.com/estateagentswatfordelstreeandborehamwood Banks are closing hundreds of branches all over the country as the reset to cash continues against people's wishes. Older customers will struggle to get to branches and many do not use, or want to use, complicated online banking systems. Many old bank branch buildings, such as this on in Loughton, Essex, are huge with much of the space no longer required and can easily be converted into flats, shops, restaurants or other mixed usage. Mortgage rates have also jumped in the last year adding significantly to the cost of buying a home. For instance, a 2% increase on a £200,000 mortgage will cost borrowers an additional £4000 per annum or £333pm. On a £250,000 loan, the extra cost is £5000 a year or £416pm. Most lenders will take this additional burden into account when working out the affordability test and adjust the borrowing level downwards. In other words, the borrow must put down a higher deposit or pay less for a property. Walmart issues profit warning as ordinary people in America struggle with cost-of-living crisis. IMF calls on central banks to raise interest rates further – this will drive the world into a recession.

Anasema “Ulimwengu katika siku zijazo unaweza kushuhudia kudorora kunako sababishwa na uchumi wa kimataifa kuwa ukingoni  ikiwa ni miaka miwili tu baada ya kushuhudia mdodoro wa mwisho” Baada ya janga la Covid 19 dunia ilitarajia uchumi kuanza kukua kati ya mwaka 2021 na 2022 lakini ni dhahiri matarajio hayo yamekuwa kinyume na IMF imetaja sababu kuu za kudorora kwa uchumi kuwa ni kupanda kwa mfumuko wa bei, kupanda kwa viwango vya riba, thamani ya juu ya dola ya kimarekani, athari za vita vya Ukraine na kushuka kwa ukuaji wa nchi ya China. Mkuu huyu wa idara ya Utafiti amesema kinachohitajika sasa ni ushirikiano wa pande nyingi katika maeneo mengi ilikupunguza hatari ya dunia kugawanyika na kuimarisha ushirikiano kwakuwa hiyo ndio njia bora ya kuboresha matarajio ya kiuchumi kwa wote na kupunguza hatari ya kugawanyika kwa kijiografia. Gourincha amesema “Kilicho muhimu sana hapa ni kwamba katika hali fulani kuna kipaumbele kimoja kikubwa katika hatua hii, na ni kurudisha utulivu wa bei katika uchumi wa juu na katika masoko yanayoibukia pia, kwakuwa wengi kwasasa wameona shinikizo la bei kuwa juu. “ IMF imesema mfumuko wa bei unaoendelea nchini Marekani na mataifa mengine makubwa ya kiuchumi unasababisha benki kuu kuongeza viwango vya riba. Wakati huo huo, kuna hoja ya usalama wa dola ya marekani ikimaanisha kuwa masoko yanayoibukia hasa yanakabiliwa na bei ya juu huku pia gharama ya kulipa deni ikiongezeka. Kishawishi kwa sasa kitakuwa nchi kusukuma mageuzi ya kiuchumi au kuongeza matumizi, lakini IMF imeonya kuwa hatua hiyo  kwasasa itaongeza maumivu zaidi baadaye.

Andrii and Gretta describe their background and how they ended up in their current positions. How the invasion changed anti-corruption work within Ukraine, how reconstruction efforts have already begun, and which corruption risks need to be taken care of to ensure effective reconstruction efforts, emphasizing the need for powerful anti-corruption institutions, better conditionalities as well as open, accessible, and centralized public information repositories. The interview discusses the approach towards conditionalities taken by the IMF, how they change in times of war, and the importance of the donors' abilities to trace the money spent.

With a track record of founding startups at a young age, and executing entrepreneurial roles in global non-profits, Saurav Roy was selected as one of the youngest Global Shapers by the World Economic Forum at Bangalore in 2017.  Since then, he has studied for a Masters in Regenerative Economics at Schumacher Collage, and is now working for the Carbon Tracker Initiative, a London-based, independent financial think tank that strives to influence the nature of global finance, away from stranded fossil fuel assets. It has cemented the terms 'Carbon bubble', 'stranded assets' and 'unburnable carbon' into the financial lexicon. Saurav's Master's thesis focused on the 'just transition' elements of the Green New Deal with the realisation that 'everything would change and everything would stay the same' in terms of the balance between the global north's endless consumption at the expense of human dignity, ecosystem annihilation and cultural balance in the global south.  He examined the lack of supply chain justice in the existing concepts, evolved radical, inspiring ideas of how a global token system might fund non-debt-based climate reparations, and created the idea of a 'Carbon Truth and Reconciliation Commission' - because not all climate devastation can be healed simply by throwing money at it. In this inspiring, thought-provoking episode, we explore these ideas in depth, evolving ideas and questions for COP27 and learn Saurav's three core concepts for healing our times.
