    SacBee: Capitol Alert ^ | 2/9/11 | Kevin Yamamura
    More notes on Gov. Jerry Brown's decision today to end the state sale of 11 office properties to private investors: • The deficit grows from $25.4 billion to $26.6 billion, as Brown foresaw in a previous press release. By eliminating the sale, the state will not receive a onetime infusion of $1.2 billion, so that amount gets tacked on to the previous deficit total. • Brown's proposal nearly doubles the amount of internal borrowing from special funds. His previous proposal relied on $1 billion in internal borrowing; the new plan takes that up to $1.8 billion. The governor also relies...

    Volume of 'subdivision' vacant lots overwhelms banks Some fire-sale prices on have dipped to 20 to 30 cents on the dollar By Paul Donsky The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 12:00 p.m. Saturday, August 8, 2009 You think it’s hard selling a house these days? Try unloading a subdivision. And not just any subdivision, but one with few if any completed homes and a weedy patch where the swim-and-tennis center was planned. That’s the reality many Georgia banks find themselves in amid a foreclosure crisis that has claimed not only individual homes but also entire failed developments. These idled, “zombie” subdivisions can be...

    New cars undercut used models as industry tries to move metal By John Reed, Motor Industry Correspondent Published: April 9 2009 03:00 | Last updated: April 9 2009 03:00 In one of the most striking signs yet of the conflicting pressures buffeting the auto industry, some new cars are now selling more cheaply than used vehicles. A shortage of good-quality used cars combined with aggressive discounts offered on many new ones by retailers and manufacturers now mean that some new cars can be had for as much as £1,000 less than used ones in good condition.

    South Africa: Anglogold Seeks 100 Percent of Cripple Creek15 January 2008Charlotte Mathews   GLOBAL gold producer AngloGold Ashanti was offering to buy Golden Cycle Corporation, its co-shareholder in the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Company in the US, for $149m in shares, the companies said yesterday.

At the end of September the outstanding value of the loan was...

    THE world’s largest garage sale is to be held in California, with everything from impounded cars to old espresso machines going on the block, in the latest effort by Arnold Schwarzenegger, the governor, to solve the Golden State’s budget crisis. The housekeeping exercise, expected to raise tens of millions of dollars for California’s central coffers, is part of the former Mr Universe’s pledge to make the cash-starved state more efficient. According to Fred Aguiar, secretary of California’s State and Consumer Services Agency, the state leases warehouses that are stacked with giant crates, each one filled with surplus state goods, most...
