Banking is among the best performing sectors this year, with annual real profitability spiking in 30% of its equity. Nevertheless, liquidity throughout 2012 brought about consequences in November to one of the main indicators, credit intermediation.

Intermediation has reported somewhat low figures throughout the year, below 55%, according to the Superintendence of Banks and Other Financial Institutions (Sudeban). Notwithstanding, the figure was reported at 50.88% last month.

In other words, for every 100 bolivars received by banking institutions, 50.88 were lent to clients. The figure is obtained by dividing the total amount of deposits by the total amount of credits.

Thus, as deposits grow faster than the delivery of credits, intermediation remained lower. Last month, most bonds set by the end of the year matured, leading to a 10.41% increase in deposits with respect to October.

The acceleration in deposits was way above the 4.96% growth reported in credits in November. Meanwhile, credit intermediation in November 2011 was reported at 53.3%.

Moreover, credit intermediation in public banking was down 38%, the lowest level over the last 12 months.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
