Mittelbayerische Zeitung: Kommentar von Reinhard Zweigler zur Grünen Woche

Regensburg (ots) – Während sich am ersten Wochenende der Grünen Woche Zehntausende durch die Hallen unter dem Funkturm drängen, demonstrieren ein paar Kilometer weiter ebenfalls Zehntausende unter dem Motto “Massentierhaltung – wir haben es satt!”. Leider haben sich in letzter Zeit die Fronten zwischen konventionell produzierenden Landwirten und Öko-Bauern und deren Abnehmern Unterstützern verhärtet. Dabei bietet die Grüne Woche ein einzigartiges Forum zum Diskutieren, zum Austausch, zum Ausräumen von Zerrbildern. Unsere Landwirte produzieren verantwortungsbewusst und nachhaltig Nahrungsmittel – und dies an 365 Tagen im Jahr. Daran ändern auch Skandale wie der bei Bayern-Ei nichts. Gegen kriminelle schwarze Schafe muss vorgegangen werden. Offenheit auf der Seite der Landwirte sowie Unvoreingenommenheit auf der Seite der Verbraucher könnten wieder zu mehr Vertrauen führen. Es ist an der Zeit, die alten Schützengräben zu verlassen.

Börsen-Zeitung: Armageddon am Ölmarkt, Marktkommentar von Dieter Kuckelkorn

Frankfurt (ots) – Die gerade beendete Handelswoche ist denkwürdig verlaufen. Die führende US-Leichtölsorte West Texas Intermediate (WTI) ist unter 30 Dollar, Brent Crude sogar erstmals seit zwölf Jahren unter 29 Dollar je Barrel gerutscht. Der Ölpreis hat, wenn man von dem Brent-Höchststand vom Sommer 2014 ausgeht, rund 75% eingebüßt. Es handelt sich um eine der ausgeprägtesten Baissen, die der Ölmarkt jemals gesehen hat.

Daher drängen sich historische Vergleiche auf, die auch helfen könnten auszuloten, wie weit es mit dem Ölpreis noch nach unten geht. Dabei fällt auf, dass selbst der Einbruch im Rahmen der von der Finanzkrise ausgelösten globalen Rezession der Jahre 2008/09 auf ein Brent-Tief von 33,73 Dollar mit 76% in etwa genauso stark ausgefallen ist wie die aktuelle Baisse, die nicht mit einer globalen Rezession verbunden ist. Und bei dem Rücksturz des Ölpreises im Jahr 1991 nach dem Ende der Angst-Hausse des ersten Irak-Kriegs hat es sich nur um eine Halbierung des Preises gehandelt. Nimmt man diese Vergleiche als Maßstab, müsste der Tiefpunkt der Entwicklung bald erreicht sein.

Auf der anderen Seite war der Ölpreis im Gefolge der Asienkrise des Jahres 1998 bis auf 10,65 Dollar abgerutscht, was inflationsadjustiert einem aktuellen Wert von 15,47 Dollar entspricht. Dies zeigt, dass es auch früher durchaus schon Situationen gegeben hat, in denen dem Produzentenkartell Organisation Erdöl exportierender Länder (Opec) und den anderen großen Anbietern die Kontrolle über den Ölmarkt vollständig entglitten ist.

Wird der Ölpreis also noch weiter einbrechen? Die Rohstoffexperten der britischen Standard Chartered halten dies für möglich. Sie halten den aktuellen Rekord unter den Rohstoffanalysten, was die niedrigste veröffentlichte Ölpreiserwartung betrifft. Eine Notierung von gerade einmal 10 Dollar halten sie für denkbar, auch wenn sie darauf hinweisen, dass ein solches Niveau absolut nichts mehr mit der fundamentalen Lage auf dem Ölmarkt zu tun hätte. Damit haben sie die Experten von Goldman Sachs abgelöst, die kurz vor Weihnachten mit der Warnung Aufsehen erregt hatten, es seien Notierungen von 20 Dollar denkbar.

Es gibt durchaus Gründe für anhaltenden Pessimismus. Die Nachfrage nach dem Energieträger wird nach Einschätzung der Internationalen Energieagentur IEA bis in die zweite Jahreshälfte hinein schwächeln, wobei die weltweite Ölindustrie schon jetzt 1,5 Mill. Barrel pro Tag (bpd) zu viel produziert. Bei dieser Ölflut könnten sogar die weltweiten Lagerkapazitäten knapp werden. Zudem ist die Opec heillos zerstritten, zwei der wichtigsten Mitglieder – Saudi-Arabien und der Iran – unterhalten mittlerweile nicht einmal mehr diplomatische Beziehungen.

Das Angebot dürfte noch weiter wachsen. Die Internationale Atomenergiebehörde wird aller Voraussicht nach feststellen, dass der Iran die Bedingungen des den Atomstreit beendenden Abkommens erfüllt hat, so dass die Sanktionen gegen das Land in Kürze fallen werden. Der Iran kann nun sofort 500.000 bpd zusätzlich auf den Markt werfen und binnen sechs Monaten 1 Mill. bpd. Steht damit – aus Sicht der Anbieter – das Armageddon des Ölmarktes bevor?

Ganz so schlimm wird es wohl nicht kommen. Die zusätzliche iranische Produktion ist keine Überraschung mehr, sie dürfte längst eingepreist sein. Das Land hat jüngst signalisiert, man werde bei der Ausweitung mit Augenmaß vorgehen. Innerhalb der Opec nimmt der Druck auf die momentan zunehmend erratisch agierende saudische Monarchie zu, sie möge dazu beitragen, dass sich die Kontrahenten im Opec-Rund zum Zweck der Preisstabilisierung zusammenraufen.

Damit würde die Opec bei dem Schwergewicht außerhalb des Kartells, Russland, offene Türen einrennen. Die russische Regierung hat den Staatshaushalt für das Jahr 2016 nämlich mit einem Ölpreis von 50 Dollar durchkalkuliert, was hinter den Kremlmauern allmählich Panikgefühle aufkommen lässt – in der Regierungssprache heißt das, man führe derzeit “Stresstests” mit verschiedenen Ölpreisszenarien durch. Und Washington erwartet gar, dass die bislang überraschend robuste US-Schieferölförderung bis September um 900.000 bpd zurückgehen wird.

Daher ist damit zu rechnen, dass ganz allmählich eine Bodenbildung des Ölpreises stattfindet, auch wenn die Marke von 30 Dollar vorerst unter dem Eindruck des bevorstehenden Endes der Sanktionen gegen den Iran gefallen ist.

Lausitzer Rundschau: Zehn Fahrräder – Zur Kaufprämie für Elektro-Autos

Cottbus (ots) – Das wären mal eben eine paar Milliarden Euro, die Wolfgang Schäuble locker machen müsste, wenn sich Wirtschaftsminister Sigmar Gabriel mit seinem Vorschlag durchsetzte. 5000 Euro Kaufprämie für E-Autos, das ist ein hübsches Sümmchen. Schäuble schwimmt zwar im Geld, doch für diese teure Subvention wird der Finanzminister nicht zu haben sein. Es gibt derzeit Wichtigeres. Gabriels Idee ist so etwas wie ein Offenbarungseid. Ihr Ziel, bis 2020 eine Million Elektrofahrzeuge auf deutsche Straßen zu bringen, wird die Regierung nie und nimmer erreichen. Da wirkt die Kaufprämie wie die letzte Patrone im Revolver. Anreize zu setzen, ist richtig, mit Geld um sich zu schmeißen, aber nicht. Schon jetzt gibt es Steuervergünstigungen, schon jetzt haben E-Auto-Fahrer Privilegien, wenn die Kommunen mitspielen – kostenfreies Parken, Mitnutzung der Busspuren. Das ist alles gut und war auch überfällig. Doch die Begeisterung für die Technologie hält sich weiter in Grenzen. Da würden vermutlich auch 5000 Euro nichts ändern. Und Nutzer anderer umweltschonender Verkehrsträger würden mit Recht fragen, warum sie nicht auch so stark gefördert werden. Fürs gleiche Geld bekommt man zehn Fahrräder. Dass die E-Autos nur miserabel nachgefragt werden, hat schlichtweg praktische Gründe: Die Vielfalt bei den Modellen ist bescheiden, das Netz der Ladestationen ist zwar größer geworden, aber noch nicht groß genug. Vor allem aber verursacht die vergleichsweise geringe Reichweite der Fahrzeuge vielen Fahrern Bauchschmerzen. Womit die Industrie ins Spiel kommt. Es ist eigentlich zuerst ihre Aufgabe, die Technologie endlich mit mehr Nachdruck voranzutreiben – wenn sie es ernst meint mit alternativen Verkehrsträgern und dem Klimaschutz. Das scheint aber nicht ausreichend der Fall zu sein.

Have you missed yourname.com? You have got a second chance. Take yourname.family. Don’t miss your second chance!

Family is one of the most powerful, evocative words in the English language; warmth, belonging, shared interests and values, security, and love, bound in a portrait above the mantle. For all its history and significance though, it’s also a highly-charged word that continues to evolve.

Its power as a politicaland social term makes it relevant for myriad organizations and causes.

A family-domain is for any family, group, organization, or business that wants to connect. It can be used to share information, photographs, stories, and ideas; and help define this ever-evolving term.

HR7 GmbH The Job Factory mit excellentem Start

2-stelliges Wachstum in 2015 – Ehrgeizige Ziele für das neue Jahr

HR7 GmbH The Job Factory mit excellentem Start

Hamburg, Januar 2016.
Die HR7 GmbH The Job Factory (ehemals AUREA Nord GmbH) kann auch für das Jahr 2015 2-stellige Wachstumsraten vermelden. Der erst 2011 gegründete Personaldienstleister setzt damit seinen Wachstumskurs fort und beschäftigt mittlerweile in 4 Bürostandorten über 350 MA. Kerngeschäft mit einem Anteil von über 75 % ist auch nach der Umfirmierung von AUREA Nord auf HR7 GmbH die Arbeitnehmerüberlassung. Die “Job Factory” versteht sich als Personaldienstleister mit einem Leistungsspektrum von Arbeitnehmerüberlassung, Personalvermittlung und -beratung, On-Site Management, Interim Management und Inhouse Outsourcing. “Auch für 2016 haben wir uns ehrgeizige Ziele gesetzt”, erklärt der Geschäftsführer Dr. Ralph Hartmann. “Im Zuge der lange vorbereiteten Umfirmierung, die strategische Gründe hatte, haben wir intern viel umstrukturiert und verändert und damit die Voraussetzung für einen stabilen Wachstumskurs gelegt”, ergänzt Dr. Ralph Hartmann.
Der Personaldienstleister scheint excellent aufgestellt zu sein und fällt unter anderem auch dadurch auf, dass sich HR7 auch den eher unpopulären Themen der Personaldienstleistung widmet wie “Generation 50+” oder der Frauenquote widmet. “Wir beschäftigen in unseren Büros über 80 % weibliche Kollegen und dies auch in Führungsfunktionen”, so Dr. Ralph Hartmann. “Unsere älteren Kollegen glänzen meist durch Verbindlichkeit und Zuverlässigkeit”, ergänzt Dr. Michaela Hartmann, verantwortlich für Finanzen und Personal. “Das Positive daran ist, dass dies auf die jüngeren Mitarbeiter ausstrahlt und eine Vorbildfunktion darstellt”, ergänzt Dr. Ralph Hartmann. Wir sind gespannt, welchen Themen sich die sehr dynamische HR7 GmbH zukünftig noch zuwenden wird und werden die Entwicklung aufmerksam verfolgen.

HR7 steht für professionelle und zuverlässige Dienstleistung in den Segmenten Arbeitnehmerüberlassung, Personalvermittlung und -beratung, On-Site Management, Interim Management und Inhouse Outsourcing.

Unser Anspruch ist die Verbindung von Geschwindigkeit und Qualität. Davon profitieren unsere Kunden unterschiedlichster Branchen schon seit Jahren.

HR7 ist ein geschätzter Partner von führenden Unternehmen und Institutionen. Unser Referenzspektrum ist ein Beleg dafür. Nehmen Sie uns in die Pflicht – wir stellen uns gerne Ihren Anforderungen. Auf Wunsch nennen wir Ihnen entsprechende Referenzen – wahlweise aus Ihrem mittelbaren oder unmittelbaren Branchenumfeld oder gerne nach funktionalen Aspekten.

Wir stehen für mehr als 25 Jahre Managementerfahrung.
