  • Don’t expect rapid change | BizNews
    relations with an authoritarian nation and removing trade and travel embargoes will hasten the fall of Castro s communist regime and lead to a democratic government is naive and fallacious The expectation that economic liberalization leads to political liberalization is unfounded historically Only the opposite is true Authoritarian regimes such as China Vietnam Iran Venezuela and Zimbabwe are all far more capitalistic than Cuba was during its most liberal economic period 2011 2013 the prospects of democracy coming to those five countries anytime soon are nil Be that as it may it is gratifying to see that U S Cuban relations are being elevated to a higher priority Therefore it is worth considering the implications of both the normalization accord and the eventual removal of the embargo in the three key areas of the agreement remittances travel and trade form the centerpiece Remittances and financial services Under the new agreement remittance levels will be raised from 500 to 2 000 per quarter and remittance forwarders will no longer require a specific license Remittance levels are currently 2 billion so the injection of capital into the Cuban economy would be huge The Cuban government would win big also since it charges a processing fee of 10 percent on all remittances U S financial institutions will be permitted to open accounts at Cuban financial institutions to expedite authorized transactions and U S credit and debit cards will be permitted by travelers to Cuba It remains to be seen how large an impact this change will have and the time required for implementation With post embargo travel permitted for all the positive effects would be significant Tourism New rules still prohibit U S citizens from traveling to Cuba except for those who fall within the 12 existing categories however those permitted to do so will no longer need to seek formal approval from Treasury s Office of Foreign Assets Control Moreover the new agreement authorizes correspondent banking relationships between U S and Cuban financial institutions along with the use of credit and debit cards for U S travelers Were the embargo to be lifted the International Monetary Fund predicts both winners and losers in Caribbean tourism Curiosity tourism to Cuba would surge with prices rising and Cuban infrastructure at capacity already unable to accommodate the large influx U S travel to Cuba would probably be a one off that is not a repeat destination like the Dominican Republic where price quality and service are far superior to Cuba s Trade The United States and Cuba do have a trade relationship however it is restricted primarily to agricultural commodities and products medicines and healthcare products Under the new accord U S firms would be permitted to export building supplies inputs for small farmers and products that Cuban entrepreneurs could use to establish small businesses However under the new agreement and in a post embargo environment who is going to finance trade with Cuba and under what terms Without U S government guarantees for trade

  • The Keystone XL Pipeline: A Win-Win for the United States and Canada | BizNews
    over 800 000 barrels of crude from Alberta s oil sands to U S Gulf Coast refineries The benefits of the pipeline far outweigh any negative features including risks that may result from Keystone XL Jobs tax impacts and competitiveness would be big winners from Keystone XL The pipeline would create 42 000 direct and indirect jobs and plow 20 billion into the U S economy Spinoff activity from Canadian oil sands would generate 45 billion while supporting 465 000 jobs in the United States by 2035 And lest we forget the United States receives nearly 90 cents from every dollar spent on Canadian goods and services compared to less than 29 cents from Venezuela and the Middle East As for taxes TransCanada invests heavily in infrastructure throughout the United States helping counties afford road improvements bridges and schools In testimony before Congress the CEO of the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce Virginia cited 1 million in tax dollars collected for infrastructure development due to TransCanada And Nebraska the key link of the pipeline would benefit to the tune of 135 billion in state and local levies from Keystone XL As for competitiveness U S manufacturing slammed by increasing governmental regulations high taxes and labor and health care costs would benefit significantly from lower energy prices courtesy of Keystone XL piped oil displacing higher priced Venezuelan oil Energy security is another issue where the Keystone XL pipeline benefits the United States a nation still dependent on foreign supplies for 45 percent of its petroleum needs With Mexico struggling to maintain its heavy crude output amidst declining exports and concerns about political stability in the Middle East and Gulf States and uncertainty in Venezuela it is imperative that the United States reduce its dependence on these sources of oil The good news is that hydraulic fracking shale gas and the Canadian oil sands will lessen the need for imported crude oil and by 2035 North America will become a large exporter of energy Finally there are the environmental and safety concerns that comprise the major arguments of opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline To begin with TransCanada not only meets but exceeds industry standards in its operations utilizing world class technology As for the chemical composition of oil sands the oil and emission levels is no different than that from Nigeria Venezuela Alaska and California currently flowing through the U S pipeline system Moreover Albertan oil has been coming into the United States for some time The U S Department of State s latest study after more than five years of investigation has found that the Keystone XL pipeline will not negatively impact climate change resulting in more greenhouse gas emissions Even if President Obama rejects Keystone the crude will travel via other means rail barge with greater risk of more greenhouse emissions and higher likelihood of an accident as happened last year near Philadelphia in North Dakota and in Quebec Province where a rail explosion killed 47 For those who ask
