History 2000, IT Bubble or DotCom Bubble. When bubble burst, US aggregate demand falling sharply. Fed responded by slashing interest rates from 6% to 1%. Effectively create housing bubbles. Housing bubble repairing US company and resident balance sheet. 2007, Sub-prime Mortgage bubble burst . 2008, Lehman Brother Collapse create banking crisis including Pan Arab Property Crises, European Debt Crisis.
Strategy To Solve Debt Crisis Previous Strategy – Fiscal Stimulus – Tax Cut, Government Spending, and Monetary Stimulus – Lowering Interest Rate. Ongoing Strategy – Quantitative and Qualitative Easing. Latest Strategy – Hair Cut and Operation Twist.
Previous Strategy to Solve Debt Crisis Monetary Stimulus. Objective: support demand creation. Mechanism . Lowering interest Rate Buying short run and long run government debt. Government debt price up. Government debt yield down. Fiscal Stimulus. Objective: create demand. Mechanism. Tax Cut. All this strategy FAIL.
US Economy GDP growth weakening after inventory restocking. Unemployment rate may increase again. Saving rate weakening. Inflation pressure may increase again.
High Europe Unemployment Ratehttp://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/cache/ITY_PUBLIC/3-31102011-BP/EN/3-31102011-BP-EN.PDF
Ongoing Strategy to Solve Debt Crisis. Quantitative Easing = Printing money to buy Treasury Securities. Qualitative Easing = Buying Less Liquid and Riskier Securities into Central Bank Balance Sheet. Motives: Preventing Deflation Monetizing Debt such as Federal Agency Debt Securities and Buying Toxic Asset from Banking such as Mortgage Backed Securities. Mechanism Fed buy directly from bank, i.e. Goldman Sach, Morgan Stanley, etc. not from Treasury Department. FYI, Fed have a close relationship with Goldman Sach Henry Paulson Secretary of the Treasury formerly Goldman Sach CEO. William Dudley Federal Reserve New York formerly Goldman Sach partner.
Problems withQuantitative and Qualitative Easing Monetizing debt Printing money won’t solve debt crises. Planting the seeds of hyperinflation. Japan history show Quantitative Easing FAIL.
We Believe QE Exacerbate Debt Crisis Primary reason why de-leveraging process need at least 10 years to revive real economic power. We do not want to accept reality that deflation are good and unavoidable. Waiting present capacity to be obsolete and replace with new capacity. Property bubbles destroy value, while previous bubbles from railroad bubbles to dotcom bubbles created economic infrastructure for future value creation. De-Leveraging cannot be done by printing money.
Latest Strategy to Solve Debt Crisis Europe Hair Cut Country : Greek government debt hair cut 50%. Detail unknown yet ... US Operation Twist Selling Short Term Treasury. Buying Long Term Treasury. Motives: Investor: increase investor appetite to invest in US. Break Liquidity Trap: reduce banking sector appetite to invest in long term treasury financed by short term treasury. Result: Fail.
Problem With Hair Cut. Greek economic structural problem not addressed, debt problem will reemerge. Currency overvalue. Large debt and corporate debt overhang (… but mostly hidden). Moral Hazard problems. Other PIIGS country may follow suit.
After Hair Cut Agreement Bond Yield Keep On Rising. Political Instability Getting Severe.

Quo Vadis Euro? Why Euro need to breakup? No homogeneity in economic performance within euro country. No instrument available to correct differences in economic performance within euro country. Who should leave Euro? Source of problem perspective, Germany and France should leave Euro. Consistently experience surplus economy while neighbors country consistently experience deficit economy. Currency exchange rate too low. Capacity to absorb shock perspective, Germany and France. Economic adjustment, PIIGS countries. Politic perspective, no countries permitted to leave Euro. Will Euro breakup in 2012? Unlikely.
Is China Strong Enough to be A Savior? At first glance, …. Large currency reserve. High economic growth rate.
Deeper Analysis (1) US and China Economy Relationship. A bugs life movie. Hopper: Its a bug-eat-bug world out there, princess. One of those Circle of Life kind of things. Now let me tell you how things are supposed to work: The sun grows the food, the ants pick the food, the grasshoppers eat the food... Paul Krugman They give us poisoned products, we give them worthless paper.
Deeper Analysis (2) Slowing Economic Growth. Inflation pressure getting higher while money supply and velocity getting lower. Sign property bubbles ready to burst? Cooling in property price. According to Andy Xie Price Bubbles indication: average price for Shanghai apartment around US$ 200.000, Average disposable income US$ 4.000. Quantity Bubbles indication: 64.5 million urban electricity meters registered zero consumption.
Last Issue, US Treasury Bond Bubbles What is bond bubbles? Price above fundamental values. Reasons of Treasury Bond Bubbles Persistent US Deficit financed by debt. Fed printing money, M2 growth around 35% since 2007 until present. Treasury Yield very low, not justified by US government ability to pay and real value keep on plummet as fed printing press still active. I think investor do not want to be paid by funny money. This maybe a black swan event. When bond bubbles burst similar to “A straw that broke camel back”.
Why US Treasury BondBubbles Burst Matter? All central bank hold their currency reserve in US$ currency and in US Treasury Bond as risk free instrument. When US Treasury Bond price plummet, all central bank losing money and losing credibility as lender of last resort, bank run may emerging, creating panic. When US Treasury Bond price plummet, money market fund, structured product i.e. CDO may default, panic among banks, fund managers, and investors. Massive wealth loss will lead to hyper deflation.
Early Indication US$Losing Foreign Investor Appetite According to Nouriel Roubini US Public debt holding period declining A decade ago the average maturity was close to 60 months. 2009, the average maturity drop to below 50 month. Acquired US$ for foreign currency reserve declining. 2001, US$ made up a little over 70% of the currency reserves held overseas. 2008, 63% of newly acquired reserves. Third quarter 2009, 37% of newly acquired reserves.
Do Indonesia MeetThe Qualification as SAFE HAVEN? Short Run – NONE Globalization ensuring that no single country immune to global crisis. Medium Term to Long Term – maybe YES Emerging Market, including Indonesia, as world new engine growth. Heavy reliance to domestic demand. Poverty trend dropping. Hot issues in Indonesia for 2012 and Beyond. Even when Indonesia economy do weakening, the best among the worst may draw investor appetite.
Accelerating Economic Growth Needs Increasing infrastructure and education spending. Increasing access to financing Banking and Multi Finance will benefit most. Bigger network the better. Increasing need for better life standard. Food, beverage, housing, pharmaceutical, insurance, leisure will benefit most. Increasing need for investing.
Risk For Not Investing Properly Central thesis. Hidden Inflation. Fast Money Supply Growth. Wealth acquired growth lower than wealth destroyed growth.

Concluding Remarks Global Economic Condition Weak and may deteriorate further. Money printing press may more active. No genuine recovery until 2020. Indonesia Economic Condition Infected but may recover faster. May received money inflow larger than Indonesia asset and economic condition could absorb. Asset bubbles will emerge. Stock investment, through mutual fund, offer good value compared to other instrument.
