… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

BI rate cuts make no impact on growth in bank lending: Report

The Jakarta Post, JAKARTA | Mon, 04/06/2009 9:29 AM

Taking too long: Customers queue Saturday at an ATM in a mall in South Jakarta. Despite sharp cuts in Bank Indonesia’s key interest rate since December, growth in bank lending remains slow. With the BI rate at 7.5 percent, interest rates for bank lending remain high at 12 to 16 percent, discouraging companies and individual consumers alike from borrowing, thus doing little to get the wheels of the economy moving any faster.

Despite sharp cuts in the central bank’s key interest rates since December, growth in bank loans remains slow as the sector grapples with rising bad loans and — for small and medium lenders — tight liquidity.

Bank Indonesia has since December slashed its benchmark interest rate by 200 basis points, the latest cut being last Friday, to help bolster domestic demand and stimulate economic growth slowed by a drop in exports amid a global economic meltdown.

However, while the BI rate now stands at 7.5 percent, interest rates for bank lending remain fairly high at around 12 to 16 percent, discouraging companies and individual consumers alike from borrowing, thus doing little to get the wheels of the economy moving any faster.

Businesses also claim that banks have been applying stricter and tighter requirements in handing out loans.

Bank Mandiri, the country’s largest lender by assets, says such a trend may have a lot to do with the banking sector’s cautiousness in giving out loans amid a rising trend in nonperforming loans (NPLs), and also a lack of liquidity in small and medium banks.

“Smaller banks will keep their interest rates high because they are worried their clients will transfer their savings and deposits to larger banks, which would then hurt their liquidity even more,” Mandiri president director Agus Martowardoyo said Friday at a gathering.

“Banks also have to face other problems in lowering interest rates, such as the high cost of funding, capital, risk, management and competition.”

According to BI data, there was no significant amount of increase in loans from commercial banks since the first BI rate cut last December.

The report shows that bank loans for investment only increased by 1.3 percent to Rp 259.3 trillion in January from Rp 255.9 trillion from the previous month, while lending for consumption barely rose to Rp 367.2 trillion in January from Rp 367.1 trillion in December.

Lending for working capital even decreased to Rp 663.4 trillion in January from Rp 684.7 trillion in December.

A growing trend in NPLs may also have contributed to the trend.

The BI report shows that NPLs have been on the rise since December.

The percentage of loans that are NPLs increased to 4.2 percent in January from 3.8 percent in December. Last Friday, BI Governor Boediono said that in February, national banks’ gross NPL rate rose by another 0.1 percent to 4.3 percent.

The report says that NPLs increased by 10.5 percent on average in three major segments — working capital, investment and consumption — ever since the first BI rate cut in December.

By function, the NPLs dedicated for the working capital segment rose 10.5 percent in January from the previous month; for the investment segment they increased 13.5 percent, and for the consumption segment they rose 7.7 percent.

Aviliani, an economist from the Indonesian Development of Economics and Finance (INDEF), shared the same opinion with Agus that scarcity in liquidity as well as rising NPLs had slowed down growth in bank lending.

“The first factor is from the funding side: large corporate banks have no problem giving out loans, but smaller and mid-size banks are currently facing a liquidity problem that prevent them providing loans,” she said Saturday.

“Second, smaller banks set high annual deposit rates of between 12 and 14 percent in order to gather cash from the public to increase liquidity. With such a high percentage on the deposit rates, no wonder they choose to set around credit rates of around 16 to 17 percent.” (hdt/fmb)
