    [$$] Thailand joins contraction club of Asian exporters

    Thailand’s exports shrank in December, defying expectations of a rebound and adding the country to a growing list of Asian nations whose outbound shipments fell at the end of 2018. “Overall, the weakness in exports continues to suggest little need for further increases in the policy rate after the Bank of Thailand raised [rates] by 25bp, to 1.75 per cent, on 19 December”, Barclays analysts wrote in a note, adding the central bank was likely to keep rates unchanged over the next twelve months as “continued decline in exports will likely keep the BoT focused on downside risks to economic growth, especially as [consumer] inflation has also slowed”.

    Small banks could reap regulatory dividend from Brexit - Bank of England

    Brexit could allow Britain to simplify rules for smaller banks to boost competition in a sector still dominated by the "Big Four" lenders, the Bank of England said on Thursday. Financial rules in Britain are written by the European Union, which the UK is due to leave in March. "There may be a reasonable case that a simpler -- simpler not weaker -- regime for small firms would advance both our safety and soundness and competition objectives," Deputy Governor Sam Woods said in a speech.

    [$$] Dark times for Sark as energy crisis looms

    The tiny island of Sark, in the English Channel, is locked in battle with its electricity provider as residents try to stave off an energy crisis that some blame partly on the billionaire Barclay brothers. The private company was forced to slash electricity prices by over 20 per cent to 52 pence per kilowatt hour after an independent commissioner said its rates were too high. The island’s government wants to buy Sark Electricity but is struggling to agree with Mr Gordon-Brown on how to value the company’s assets. Sark residents rely on electricity to pump and purify their water and are not convinced a deal will be reached in time to prevent another crisis.
