Government Jettisoned Sinking Fund Arrangement for 2018 Restructured Bonds

The quoted comment was posted to the blog From Private to Public – Cinnamon 88 to CLEARWATER BAY, a concern for taxpayers. It is a nugget of information – see blogmaster’s highlighted text – that has not registered in the BU space, however at this seemingly late stage it is a matter ripe for discussion. To be fair to government the amendment occurred in the light of day however …

The Government response has ‘promise’, and certain bodies, like the Accountant General have much on their plate. Of news to me, was “following the debt restructuring exercise in 2018, the Local Loans Act was amended to remove the 2% sinking fund requirement in respect of the restructured Series Bonds. The sinking funds were then transferred to the Consolidated Fund…”

This was yet another step to aid in the cash crunch, and gave the GoB cash. It also means there is no provision to periodically set aside money (sinking fund) for repayment of the ‘restructured Series Bonds’.

NorthernObserver

The common explanation for the purpose of a Sinking Fund is “a fund containing money set aside or saved to pay off a debt or bond. A company [government] that issues debt will need to pay that debt off in the future, and the sinking fund helps to soften the hardship of a large outlay of revenue. A sinking fund is established so the company can contribute to the fund in the years leading up to the bond’s maturity”.

The obvious explanation to which NorthernObserver alludes is that the government because it is broke ignored the importance of a good financial rule i.e. creating a sinking fund to make paying at maturity of the bonds easier. In other words to mitigate against a default. The biggest irony in this case is that a selected default by the Mottley government in 2018 must have informed the decision to jettison the sinking fund arrangement. Oh what a tangled weave when first we practice to …

The decision to do away with the sinking fund arrangement obviously had the approval of government’s banker. Four years later the government feels confident enough to issue bonds. In the prevailing climate stoked by NIS fear, 2018 restructure and a hostile economic climate, it will be a hard task for the government to convince the most patriotic Bajan to buy government bonds. There is the reminder every decision has consequences.

Here is a copy of the Local Loans (Amendment) Bill, 2018 passed in our parliament on the 24/10/2018.

    “ Shouldn’t the issue of racism in TNT and GUY be COLLECTIVELY ADDRESSED by ALL member states of CARICOM?”

    Well, if we are collectively(CARICOM) going to address racism in T&T and Guyana, we should also address racism in Barbados.
    The major difference here is that while in T&T and Guyana, the racial or ethnic mix is rather close in numbers ; in Barbados, the Blacks are an overwhelming majority.
    There may very well be more mixing of the different races and ethnicities , in both T&T and Guyana , than there is in Barbados.
    Listening to Brother Muhamad Naser , racism is obviously alive and well in Bim.
    and I agree.
    I don’t think it’s fair to put this monkey on Mia’s back.
    If we were to go beyond this narrow view, we would soon be telling her not to deal with the USA, that is a racist country by any standard.

    Mr. Skinner

    It was within the above context I responded.

    TLSN’s views are extremely narrow. And, that’s why I mentioned countries such as the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and China.
    India is a racist country, especially as it relates to ‘darker’ Indians.

    Yes racism is alive in Barbados, and is perpetrated by Indians, Pakistanis, Arabs and Chinese living here.
    Indians, Pakistanis and Black people whom the British had signs in their shops and apartments that read, ‘No Blacks, No Irish, No dogs.’
    Chinese were treated like horribly by the Americans.
    Arabs continue to be racially profiled in countries all over the world.

    Yet, these ethnic groups believe they are superior to Africans.
    And, practice their racism on populations that are predominantly African.

    Read news about Africa to understand Chinese racism and exploitation.
    They are opening businesses, exploiting their African employees and placing signs in their establishments…… ‘No Africans allowed.’

    Indians opened car parts outlet in Black Rock and Tweedside Road, areas that are predominantly ‘Black.’
    So, you can guess the ethnicity of their customers.

    Let a Black man open a bread shop in Belleville and see if patronage by the Indian and Pakistani communities therein is equally reciprocal.

    We are bluntly refusing to discuss the economic power of a very small minority of races and ethnicities in Bim.
    Every time one mentions any subject of race and economic equality they are deemed racists.
    As far as I am concerned , talking about racism elsewhere while ignoring the racism in ones own country is really a cop out.
    We got a long way to go because matters such as : income equality; enfranchisement, worker/ employee participation in businesses, land reform and other socio-economic issues , are still to be addressed.
    Until then, we really need to concentrate on the myriad issues we have here rather than constantly zoom in on the problems others face.

    @Wiliam and @Artax, if I may use your posts to enter this matter of regional racism and how leaders should (practically) interact… Isn’t it a truism that “The major difference here is that while in T&T and Guyana, the racial or ethnic mix is rather close in numbers ; in Barbados, the Blacks are an overwhelming majority. […] There may very well be more mixing of the different races and ethnicities , in both T&T and Guyana , than there is in Barbados.

    Further, isn’t THAT exactly why racism in TnT and Guyana are so significantly more problematic than the ‘white privilege’ form that is pervasive in Bim!! No prolix here guys but it can’t be a surprise that “Listening to Brother Muhamad Naser [affirms that] racism is obviously alive and well in Bim.“.

    RACISM is alive and well in 190 (give or take 😎) of the 195 nations on world scene! That 3% is for the nations like Mongolia where there is almost no racial disparity across the country and EVEN THEN there will be ethnic strife which is basically ‘racism’ by another name!

    I use that to flow to other points like “Until then, we really need to concentrate on the myriad issues we have here rather than constantly zoom in on the problems others face.” No brother, it can’t and doesn’t work that way. Our issues are oft times absurdly similiar (down to the decimal point even 👌) to many of those myriad ones around us.

    We can be better prepared to address ours when we understand those other issues .. so we must continue to look at leadership issues in US and Russia and Nigeria and all the other problems the world faces because but for a moment in time so too shall we face similar problems!

    And re “Yet, these ethnic groups believe they are superior to Africans. And, practice their racism on populations that are predominantly African.” … At this stage of the game of life WHO brings that level of racial/ethnic discrimination upon Africans other than ourselves!

    What you describe about retail shops being placed among Black populations in Bim has been rampant across the globe (as you alluded to). @Skinner in Georgia and Theo in New Jersey and any others across US can surely speak of Korean or Arab owned ‘bodegas’ or Asian owned ‘pedicure and manicure’ shops in Black naves … and of course Chinese take-away food shops!

    There is as Asian site called ‘Shien’ and of course the Alibaba site (and corporation) that is very, very popular with lots of Black folks and others too of course … but Blacks go hard (like with cryptocurrency explorations) as they are more readily looking for that best opportunity.

    Do any of them control our minds and make us spend money with them !!! … When the ubiquitous ‘coolie’ man had his lay-a-way tentacles in our grands and great grands we had solid grounds to speak of the insidiousness of racism because then we couldn’t get the loans or helping hand to develop our start-up … but NOW!

    We have to be real … racism is real fah sure but it’s now a very BLURRED construct of Mutually Assured Discrimination (MAD acronym works every time) !

    How is it that, on one hand, we are CONDEMNING Mottley for ENGAGING with REGIONAL NEIGHBOURS, Guyana and Trinidad, because those islands are “riddled with racism,”……

    …… but, on the other hand, we are COMFORTABLE when she’s engaging with INTERNATIONAL COUNTRIES are “riddled with racism” as well?
    And, that’s the REASON WHY I MENTIONED “countries such as USA, UK, Canada” etc.
    It was NOT INTENDED to suggest we should “constantly zoom in on the problems others face.”

    But I got stacks that’ll attack any wack host
    Introducing, yo, fuck that nigga’s name
    My Hip Hop drops on your head like rain
    And when it rains it pours, ’cause my rhymes hardcore
    That’s why I give you more of the raw
    Talent that I got will riz-ock the spot
    Mc’s I’ll be burning, burning hot
    Whoa-hoa-hoa, let me, like, slow up with the flow
    If I move too quick, oh, you just won’t know
    I’m homicidal when you enter the target
    Nigga get up, act like a pig trying to hog shit
    So I take yo’ ass out quick
    The mics, I’ve had it my nigga, you can suck my dick (dick)
    If you wanna step to my motherfucking rep
    Ch-ch-bloaw-blaow-blaow, blown to death
    You got shot ’cause you knock, knock, knock
    “Who’s there?” Another motherfucking hard rock
    Slacking on your macking ’cause raw’s what you lack
    You wanna react? Bring it on back (back)

    Shame on you, when you step through to
    The Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Brooklyn Zoo

    It means nothing to you, we know. That’s why your positions lack context, grounding and a correct perspective within the context of the 2×3 island.

    You mean that white centered blog that is often quoted by those pulling down BU? One does not have to pull down what others have built in order to promote what you are doing. Crabs in a barrel.

    ironically, it was not BU made a certain decision for me yesterday, it was the FAKE local media yall got that REFUSED to publish what MAINSTREAM MEDIA in metropolis countries and everywhere else are circulating ….so that their people will KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT and PREPARE….and don’t get caught unaware..

    apparently, that is not what ya judases want for their people, they don’t want them to know…which means something EVEN MORE SINISTER IS AT PLAY which they cannot hide for very long.

    in saying that….it makes SENSE not to let THE ENEMY know what’s happening going forward….so they can prepare to CIRCUMVENT…meaning, everything now has to be distilled differently and in other places where it will do the most good..

  • @ ArtaxAugust 26, 2022 9:25 AM,

    I fail to understand why the Caribbean’s black majority populations refuse to make a stand on those communities and countries who discriminate against their black citizens. We tend to forget that the Caribbean and her environs were built on the backs of our African ancestors. Caricom and the Caribbean black diaspora should have called out Guyana and Trinidad at least 30 years ago. We are all fully cognisant of the endemic racism that exists in these two countries and their mistreatment of their black populations.

    In spite of this, our governments allowed the government of Trinidad and her business communities to purchase Bajan owned businesses, land, the media, and nearly everything that was not locked down on the island. We anticipate that Guyana will soon be coming to the table. This can only end one way. Barbados black majority population will collapse at every level. They will be completely marginalised at every level. How many Indians do you see encircling M.I.A when business is discussed in the media. Sadly, she is already in their pockets. Check out the name of our ambassador for the UAE.

    Caribbean governments should be prepared to offer tacit support to their brethren in South, North and Central America. Whilst engaging in talks with those countries who are oppressing them. Our leaders have no influence on the leadership of these countries. However we can address the horrors of racism in Barbados. Our governments should adopt policies which prevents racist minorities from gaining a foothold in our country. They could and should develop policies which will severely undermine our existing minority groups who in my opinion are up to no good.

    The tragedy for Barbadians is that they have always been led by two governments who have always been anti-black. You and your people will only survive if you frog march your useless leadership to the slaughter house along with the pigs and the cattle.

    a lot of them suffer with the SNSindrome……wasting years of their lives, time and energy attacking each other STUPIDLY and then are too worn out to do anything uplifting for themselves and families…..too busy FIGHTING DOWN EACH OTHER from moving upward..

    “This can only end one way. Barbados black majority population will collapse at every level. They will be completely marginalised at every level.

    let them lose another generation listening to the CORRUPT….maybe they will learn…but i give them 3 more generations of suffering, oppression, bondage and thefts from themselves before they do..

    “However we can address the horrors of racism in Barbados. Our governments should adopt policies which prevents racist minorities from gaining a foothold in our country.

    collaborators and CO-CONSIPIRATORS will never address anything that will slow down their high speed BRIBERY train..

    “The tragedy for Barbadians is that they have always been led by two governments who have always been anti-black. You and your people will only survive if you frog march your useless leadership to the slaughter house along with the pigs and the cattle.”

    the final solution..

    nor should White or Brown or Yellow be one for Politics or Business
    If White Brown or Yellow are truly better in Business than Black
    then Black should become White Brown and Yellow in Business

    to quote Bob quoting His Imperial Majesty in league of nations

    ““Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war. And until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the colour of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained… now everywhere is war.”

    Come on.. Time to exit the pity party and knotted knickers.

    The field has been a paradise for your type of bowling, and you are out there with your feeling hurts and crying in your tea.

    How could you withdraw at the very moment your country needs you? How could you allow a few blocked contributions to throw you off your game.

    You are not a person who has a limited amount of material, in fact you are the very opposite – a prodigious fount of ideas. You can easily ignore blocked or ‘tek dung’ comments and post others.

    Man up, stop sniffling and get back in the fight.
