Despite a terrible current account deficit (USD800), the USD is heading towards a 140 JPY/USD level. There are 2 main reasons to explain the USD level in 2005. The first one is that thanks to a rising interest rates policy led by the FED (4.75%), the USD rose. Indeed high interest rates attracted Foreign Direct Investments (FDI), for example when the oil price increase a lot of oil exporting countries received a surplus in dollars and invested this surplus in US treasury bonds, and it helped to keep a strong USD. In the same time, the bank of Japan (BoJ) kept its interest rate close to zero.
Additionally, even if a good potential target was identified, the change in federal regulations had made obtaining the necessary leverage a challenging task, forcing LBO firms to put up over 30% of the buyout in equity, thereby reducing the possible returns. Although the banking market had tightened regulation and made debt harder to come by, equity from investors was pouring in. 2004 had been a record-breaking year in terms of dollars invested as well as transactions completed, and 2005 was on track to continue increasing those figures. Purchase price for companies were hovering at about 7x EBITDA, the highest since 1999. Some of the reasons for this increase in deal size include: • Firms were able to raise a lot of money and felt the need to put that money to work • Firms were becoming industry-focused, developing operational expertise to help their targets after the buyout process • Firms were diversifying into other markets such as Europe, Asia and India, where LBOs still presented attractive returns such as the ones seen in the US circa 1980’s • U.S. private equity firms were establishing international offices to deploy this excess of funds, sometimes “bidding up” or overpaying just to ensure capital deployment 2.
GDP has always been a strong measure of economic strength as it is the account for all spending of the country, thus it being a strong economic indicator. As the economy has been constantly growing, the GDP has been following suit and growing steadily. In 2010, a recession hit the country and as the strength of the economy fell, so did the GDP. In 2009, the GDP was 1542.56 billion dollars. The year after, it dropped by roughly 200 billion, only to rise up again to 1778.63 in 2012.
Henry VII had more crown lands than any previous king and some lands had been confiscated under the acts of attainder meaning more money for the crown. The kings annual income from his royal estates rose from £12,000 to £42,000 which was a significant improvement showing that his techniques were working in this area, also another example of ordinary revenue that was used effectively was custom duties. Henry cracked down on corrupt officials and constantly updated the book of rates of custom duties. Historians estimate custom duties rose from £33,000 to £40,000. This was also an improvement becasue money was still being raised adding more value to the crown.
