GuySuCo: Mired in a sea of losses and bailouts – by Dr Clive Thomas

GuySuCo: Mired in a sea of losses and bailouts

Posted By Dr Clive Thomas – March 30, 2014

Clive ThomasFrom a dynamic perspective, over the medium to long-term the profitability of the sugar industry as a whole, and GuySuCo in particular, is more than any other variable, the best representative indicator of its sustainability as a commercial venture. From a business accounting standpoint the profit that is made indicates the extent to which total earnings or business income derived from sugar can cover all sugar costs or business expenses, thereby resulting in a surplus of income over these expenses or Accounting profit.

From this vantage point, in order to ensure genuine sustainability these costs or expenses should include  1) all employment, materials, and services costs; 2) all set-aside provisions for research and development (R&D); 3) similarly set-aside provisions for maintaining/replacing the capital stock; 4) similar provisions for servicing debts and liabilities (both long-term and short-term) in a timely manner; and 5) the generation of  adequate returns(dividends) for the industry stakeholders/shareholders; and also sufficient to attract new investments if required or alternatively to retain enough profits to finance such investments.

The Jagdeo challenge – by Ralph Ramkarran

Stabroek News – March 30, 2014 – Features, Sunday

RamkarranThe Guyana Times published a story on Thursday March 20 reporting that the opposition had caused a poll to be conducted last month which found that “former President Bharrat Jagdeo would be the most formidable candidate that the Opposition parties… could face in any upcoming general elections.” The following day the Guyana Chronicle carried a front page headline as follows: ‘Jagdeo favoured as PPP’s presidential candidate’ in an opposition poll. The opposition denied any such poll.

The publications in the newspapers which followed outreaches organized by loyalist ministers, belie Dr Jagdeo’s protestations that he is not interested in a third term. This new campaign was no doubt inspired by talk of a landslide victory if he had been the candidate in 2011, and if he is now the candidate. An expensive campaign was also put together in 2010 which only fizzled out when General Secretary Donald Ramotar took a stand against a third term. Now that elections appear to be on the horizon Dr Jagdeo is beginning to drool with renewed ambition and hunger for high office.   Continue reading
