Standard & Poor’s Lowers Barbados Sovereign to ‘B-‘ from ‘B’ (outlook is negative)

worrell-sincklerBarbadians have become fatigue under the the constant negative feedback from armchair pundits and professionals like S&P. Where do we go from here? All the experts have painted a gloomy forecast EXCEPT the minister of finance Chris Sinckler.  Who are the citizens to believe Sinckler or all the other who are experts in the field.

The report from S&P explains the mouthing from Dr. Warren Smith who heads the Caribbean Development Bank who has advised government to privatize the Barbados Port Authority and Grantley Adams Airport. The following extract from S&P report confirms what the BU family has been writing about for a few years.

Who will act to stop the rot or it it too late!

However, usable international reserves, which we consider for assessing external liquidity, are even lower; we subtract the monetary base from international reserves because reserve coverage of the monetary base is critical to maintaining confidence in the exchange-rate regime. Barbados’ usable reserves have been negative since 2013, and the position continues to deteriorate, in part because of the central bank’s deficit financing, which has expanded the monetary base. We expect Barbados’ gross external financing needs to be above 200% of current account receipts (CAR) plus usable reserves. We expect narrow net external debt to average around 40% of CAR during 2016-2018. Our external assessment also considers that net external liabilities of a projected 170% of CAR during 2016-2018 are substantially higher than narrow net external debt. Finally, we note that Barbados’ International Investment Position has inconsistencies and is not timely.

    I think I heard comrade Hoyos call in to Brasstacks yesterday and reasoned with comrade Johnson( he is just like Comissiong,he calls a spade a spade becuz both of them acculturated in the southern caribbean states and they don’t differentiate because they didn’t have no albinos dominating them like the Bajans still have)that the rating agencies have a scale of 21 notches on the totem pole starting at AAA as no 1(top class risk,no problem)all the way down.The point of concern is that Barbados is at no 16 now, well on its way to notoriety and whatever else comes when junk becomes garbage.
    I think Mia should bring another no confidence motion and air all the missteps this lot is making.Punishing St Joseph for keeping faith with the BLP is no reason to make those citizens pay for non existent water.As Fats Domino sang”Ain’t that a shame”.

    The point of no return is reached when S&P moves to a C-grade like Moody´s. I predict, we will reach this point either in 12 or 24 months after the budget speeches. 12 months would be clearly preferable for the opposition to create the proper environment for the next election.

    A shortage of foreign currency would be best after next election to underpin the need for a fundamental reform of the public sector.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, another precedent that is notable while not instructive.

    “Board members at Wells Fargo have used the company’s clawback policy to recoup millions in compensation from top executives in the wake of a massive customer scam.”

    “CEO John Stumpf will forfeit $41 million in stock awards, not receive a salary during an investigation into the scandal and have no bonus for 2016, the bank’s directors said Thursday evening.”

    “Beyond the CEO, the clawback will also affect Carrie Tolstedt, a retiring community banking executive who oversaw that department where thousands of workers opened fraudulent customer accounts to meet quotas.”

    Would that the Government of Barbados and, wishfully, the incoming Leader of the Opposition could, as the next duly elected government of Barbados exercise this option through the powers vested in our laws, and which our Director of Public Prosecutions selectively administers depending on if you a not a Guyanese or a body named Bark at a Man, and prosecute these ministerial teifs and robbers.

    But that would set a precedence known as the Haman’s gallows

    All of these decades and the credit unions, the most vital part of the banking ststem, because it’s owned by the majority people, have not been part of the business decision making in the country, their country.

    The credit unions just have to make sure that neither the leaders of the country nor their foreign/local parasitic investors can get their hands on any of the union members money, unless they are very heavily invested in the credit union.

    What the upoer management at Wells Fargo did was the worst act of criminality yet for 2016. Tgey set up employees they know are vulnerable and cannot refuse to do their jobs or be fired for insubordination………to take the fall for their reckless, thiefing decisions….5,000 employees fired….none of the upper management should get salaries for 5 years and then be fired….I would drag that investigation until forever.

    @ Well Well & Consequences

    Interestingly enough I first went to Naked Departure via a link posted her some months back when there was an imputation that our David [BU] was a lascivious Sankey Price

    I’ve been there 5 times since always from a link here last time to view Alex’s claims about victimization by the BRA and your last link.

    Here are de ole man s thoughts per the use of Naked Departure as a dissemination mechanism.

    1.The doctrine of the enemy of my enemy is my friend is well known and tried and sound.

    2.The DLP are the enemy of all patriotic Bajans so any mechanism to counter and erode their hold is useful strategy.

    3.Naked is seriously left field.

    insofar as it posts some radical stuff on “targets of interest” just like the Nation, and the Advocate and your star boy at Barbados Today.

    If it is prepared to post its opinions why then “super moderate” posts of “dissenting” opinions that are contra the original post? might not know this but it is not everything that the Blogmaster does that de ole man agrees with. He and the members of the BU Household will tell you that I ent no sweetbread with my paranoid self BUT one thing that David has held to in his dealings with me and all of the posters here, is HIS ABSOLUTE COMMITMENT TO THE SECRECY AND CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS.

    He does not get up one day and kick us to the curb.

    And I am confident that, should he ever sell BU he will (a) absolutely anonymize all of our IP addresses so that they don’t migrate to the new owners and (b) tell all the users about the sale so that we can choose to keep posting, or subtract ourselves from the matrix of “and there arose a king that knew not Joseph…”

    Sherri Veronica Exposed David once and they were professional colleagues.

    what you need to understand is that my nom de plume is “protected” by the process associated with the BU posting process.

    BU does not “validate your email address” at sign in, at least not prior to this year or more precisely when the ole man signed on, and consequently, in a court of law, any defamation charge CANNOT OVERCOME THAT HURDLE.

    Simply put, I can choose any name or nom de plume after I add my email address, like Jack Bowman does periodically, and no law court can definitively affirm that the poster of any comment, was you or me.

    While the “dissemination opportunity” is obviously much more prolific i.e. has a wider audience which favours the “Bajans Want Change” cause BIGLY heheheheheh the code that is required here, and that which David accords @ 2016, is critical.

    When this government changes the freedoms of social media in Barbados will see some serious challenges and major changes

    Barbados Underground is feared and hated by both the Democratic Labour Party and by Mia Mottley. Each one of us needs to plan for that.

    5.Finally, de ole man is not against spreading the message of Change be it by King (no pun intended) or poor man as long as certain conditions are met.

    I do have an option that safeguards all parties and permits the objective to be achieved but it will require certain protective undertakings at commencement


  9. Well Well & Consequences September 28, 2016 at 11:23 AM #

    I gpt ya Piece….the target audience of naked departure are not the BU regulars and it’s quite obvious other methods were used to draw those who have other interests other than long winded debates…but, they are actually the majority and sicieties most vulnerable whowe are trying to enlighten and protects.

    I am sure they count in the many thousands because of what holds their interest.

    I am sure the ACs spent the last 2 days on naked departure, they are noticeably absent…lol

    Wrong Piece….not conversant at all, never have, dont know the lady….ND is a platform, a means to an end, hopefully on the same page as I am in sharing information to majority Bajans to affect a change that would allow the majority to understand their circumstances. ..

    ……and for their own sakes, that of there children and grandchildren, and their future generations….take back what is rightfully theirs, what has been stolen and allowed to get away by weak leaders….and use their investor and entrepreneurial skills to benefit themselves and their own communities….only…going forward

    I use ND as I would any US or French media platform.

    As I said, you would not find the same target audience on ND as you would find on BU…but the ones on ND…make up the majority of people on the island….for reasons previously discussed……

    BU is fine as is.

  31. pieceuhderockyeahright September 28, 2016 at 3:26 PM #

    @ TheGazer

    I am going to borrow from your list.

    1.No new names for poster boy. They by now understand that I can’t be “baited”, being called names trigger an anomaly response (read psychosis heheheheh) and when they profile de ole man dey realize that my outbursts come from my “righteous self indignation”. Heheheheh read madman pun de loose heheheheh

    The problem with triggering that component of my psyche is that, contrary to other people that they goad here, my resulting focused “vitriol” always undermines their public image particularly those of their critical matters in the spotlight.

    Read the multiplicity of tings dem has effed up.

    Hindsight being 20/20 they realized that this PUDRYR/AC encounter has not worked out for them in that they realized that she, AC, twisted the tiger’s tail and the tiger is jes a crazy mauling feline beast dat likes blood. Full stop.

    Now dat was not sumting dat anyone cud have seen on the surface so we gots to forgive her for that but, try as they may getting her to shut up proved impossible for quite some time.

    But now that dem bring in dem people to get she tone down dem cyan turn off de ole man who show she dat she ingrunt position bout posters is jobby.

    2.Create Dem Own Posters.

    That won’t work. And I will tell you why.

    Inherent to the design of any poster there is a requirement for “content”.

    There is nothing that is meaningful in the DLP portfolio and legacy which permits them to post such poster currency.

    So even if they do the contra BLP ites candidate posters their is nothing, IN ANY MINISTRY, IN ALL 8 YEARS OF THEIR TENURE, THAT CONSTITUTES CURRENCY!!!

    3.The David Come Sing a Song discrediting strategy is based on their erroneous determination that David’s success in courts against them parlays into his success in the political stream.

    That is the stupid AC asserting herself but, unfortunately David has never been able to make his stellar contributions to the poor man translate into anything meaningful because of his opinion of himself- the ego ride of self imagery dat we menses got bout we ingrunt self.

    Look it is like Mia Mottley who will win because the DLP WILL LOSE and not because of substantive worth. But no one is prepared to tell either of them that AND HOW TO CHANGE IT.

    Any way they are running a campaign against his political aspirations and the ingrunt AC has unilaterally decided to do her ting

    4.The Do Not Engage instructions came directly from the Stinkliar himself.

    She was told to cease and desist but you dun know that Kelman and Pigrim can’t be told anything

    Look you do not engage with dem four horsemen unless you want to get destroy my man.

    It never occured to this greedy animal that there are people out there needing a hot meal and by the time the bad weather is over, many will be needing much more.

    That video of Fruendel proves beyond a doubt what a fraud he is..”when I go outside of Barbados, I hear people saying how good things are going in Barbados, they envy…tra lala”

    First of all…Fruendel needs to listen to the people who live IN BARBADOS. …they are the ones can tell him exactly what in going on IN Barbados.

    The credit rating agencies are domiciled outside of Barbados and he and his mutts in parliament are NOT listening to them….but he is listening to asses, living outside of Barbados who are telling him what he wants to hear.

    Then he boasts to the bajans who are feeling the strain, that people who do not live in Barbados are telling him how good it is there….and the low intellect slaves would believe, because Fruendel said a foreigner told him that things are great in Barbados and they are the envy of the world.

    Fruendel is a Fraud.

    Brother Hants,

    Thank you most kindly.

    The posters are not hard to conceptualize nor compose.

    There is so much content abounding across the airwaves which Artaxerxes or Frustrated Business Man or Prodigal Son provide by writing a 2 paragraph item and, easily highlight the multiplicity of items the DLP have effed up.

    Just so it is “bingo”, one has the content needed.

    Layout is a second aspect and then there is the inspiration required

    That may demand “changes”, sometimes minimal and sometimes major changes since what I seeking to create does not exist and has to be arranged so that the “message” is seen’

    Sometimes after i post an item I see how it could have been better and sometimes i go back to my collection and make that change.


    The videos require more time to “see” and to create. You have to “cut up” the content provided and re-splice based on a “visual template” of what you want to achieve that in your head.

    Animation is the hardest since it must have ‘a storyboard to map out” what is required thereafter you adjust the cameras to give perspective to the scenes like if you are doing a movie.

    Live talent is hardest since your are dealing with people and their temperaments and other baggage.

    Then there is dissemination with its attendant challenges (i) who will see this (b) where (c) how regularly (d) when and (e) via what media

    Then you have to effect the metrics and measure the impact.

    Dissemination is the greatest issue for it is here that the rubber hits the road.

    Thanks Artaxerxes

    With regard to your post yesterday specifically Hants September 30, 2016 at 8:19 AM #

    “You and de grandson should create a “compilation” video of all your posters.”

    First of all I have to say thanks to you.

    Actually let me go through the list as I try to remember you all

    To My Dearest Girlfriend SSS who though missing in action was my first inspiration (as are we men driven by our gonads)

    Then there was IBrathwaite who i rarely see but hope that he is here

    Then there was TheGaze who like others made the commendations

    Then Exclaimer most recent remarker

    I also must say thanks to my North American friend The Word aka the Ingrunt Word aka Dribbler

    And I must mention my silent colleague in arms Colonel Buggy whom I once “shouted at” and asked to stand down. Apologies soldier and warrior, it was those Remingtons that triggered my “righteous indignation” because it brought bile to my mouth to know that the RBPF which is tasked with the safety of citizens, was involved in criminal activity

    And of course my numerous suppliers of materials condensed into snippets of code, 6, 7 8 words which give me the vision to see them and convert them.

    Artaxerxes, Bush Tea, Donna, Hopi, Simple Simon, Prodigal Son, Are we there yet, Jeff, Caswell, Dr. GP, Well Well and Consequences, Frustrated Business Man and others that I am too tired to remember.

    And no it is not an Oscar Award acceptance speech.

    By themselves Hants “compiling the items” don’t have much of an impact Hants, and yes, while they provide material for the BLP (and the DLP?) in their current format, they are not marketable.

    Sure the BLP is going to take them and try to duplicate and replicate them.

    But, they have to become “a product”, become a “platform” that can be transferred to a third party.

    When i saw your remark this morning it caused de ole man to think of “how do I convert the “process” and create a product for consumption??

    I can deliver the service to you or any client by various modes but how do you package it for “consumption” by a third part?? with the provisio of giving a (potential) client something yet nothing!

    And even when they become a client STILL giving them their values work but giving away nothing.

    And then i looked at your “challenge” this morning and it hit me, if i can take your “task” on and deliver a product to you, one that met your expectations, then i would have been able to package the item in a valid “envelope” that allows a potential client to see its possibilities while meeting my own “delimiter” which is to show nothing.

    So this link below is a result of the “virtual assignment” that you assigned me

    It took me 8 hours to research, and refine, and create the item below, 8 hours, less the time doing the Stoopid Cartoons, and the videos.

    As simple as that item is it carries so much in it.

    Again my thanks Hants

    And of course, I cannot close off my “thank yous” without mentioning AC.

    The one who we often think of as being challenged and incapable of understanding the use of ellipses. Without your response that morning 4 months? ago, i would not have this Campaign 360, out of nothing – creation.

    Thanks AC
