  • Credit rating agency downgrades South Africa to junk status

    An international credit rating agency has downgraded South Africa to junk status, following the country's controversial cabinet shake-up last Friday. Standard and Poor’s cut the African nation’s sovereign credit rating by one notch to BBPlus. The agency says the changes by President Jacob Zuma have jeopardized South Africa’s economic prospects. Responding to the downgrade, South Africa's Treasury has said in a statement that it is committed to a predictable and consistent fiscal path. The county’s currency has already fallen three percent against the US dollar since the shake-up, and the downgrade caused further currency devaluation. Zuma has been slammed for replacing eleven of his cabinet members in a major reshuffle, with opposition parties promising a motion of no confidence against h...

  • Downgrade for the ratings agencies?

    They downgraded the US and added theatrics to the debt ceiling debate - but who are these ratings agencies? They seem to wield immense power and influence over the global economy - a mere warning from one of them can rock markets, influence the debate by governments, with ripple effects that trickle down to individual citizens. But whose interests do they really serve? And does their track record prove they may deserve a downgrade. Follow Lauren on Twitter: http://twitter.com/LaurenLyster

  • Problems With Credit Rating Agencies

    Professor Timothy Sinclair, University of Warwick Getting credit ratings 'right' seems vitally important to many professional observers and politicians. The increasingly volatile nature of markets in a post-Bretton Woods world of international capital mobility has created a crisis in relations between the rating agencies and governments, which seek to monitor the performance of the agencies and stimulate 'reform' in their procedures and business models, even if the exact purpose of this reform seems to elude them. This process started with the Enron bankruptcy, but the subprime crisis has generated a veritable 'moral panic' about agency performance in relation to asset-backed securities. In pursuing improvement in the rating system policy-makers need to appreciate the limits to rating. Ou...

This process started with the Enron bankruptcy, but the subprime crisis has generated a veritable 'moral panic' about agency performance in relation to asset-backed securities. In pursuing improvement in the rating system policy-makers need to appreciate the limits to rating. Our expectations of the agencies are founded on a rationalist or machine-like understanding of the workings of capital markets, and on an exogenous understanding of the causes of financial crisis. This worldview implies a correct rating can be determined, and that finding this correct answer is purely a technical matter. A more accurately social and dynamic view of markets and financial crises makes the challenge of effective rating even more daunting.
