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.

Kaldor Budget and Black Friday February 16, 1962 – commentary

From the Diaspora…Kaldor Budget and Black Friday February 16, 1962

MARCH 30, 2014 | BY  | Commentary … By Ralph Seeram 

Ralph SeeramMr. Forbes Burnham dealt with the harsh tax measures introduced by what was known as the Kaldor Budget and ended his speech by working on the emotions of his audience in the manner of Mark Anthony. “Comrades,” he exclaimed, “the fight starts now. Tomorrow at 2 o’clock in the afternoon there is a demonstration organized by the Trade Union Congress, a demonstration against the harsh proposals of the budget, which make life unbearable.

“No doubt the Riot Squad will be there. Do you still want to go? Comrades, remember that tomorrow Jagan’s army is coming down from Cane Grove and Windsor Forest. Do you still want to go? (Wynn Parry Commission).”

Thus started a series of events on February 12, 1962 that led to the burning and looting of several businesses in Georgetown on what is now described as Black Friday February 16, 1962.
