As the clock ticks towards the Czech Republic’s takeover of the European Union’s six-month rotating presidency on January 1, there are signs of distinct nervousness in Brussels and some EU capitals over how Prague will cope with the challenge. For most EU governments, the global financial crisis, economic recession, the fate of the Lisbon institutional reform treaty and relations with Russia will be the top priorities for the first half of next year.

Cleveland Fed on GDP - Dreary Outlook | zero hedge
In what is surely one of the more unusual approaches to a pensions shortfall, Diageo, the drinks group, has offered up a veritable lake of its whisky as collateral for the growing shortfall in its benefits scheme. In my opinion, this is a bad idea. If pensions want to drink themselves silly, they should be focusing on the liquidity tsunami driving risk assets higher. BP's attempt to hide the amount of oil gushing from the sea floor led to months of counterproductive shenanigans like Top Hat and Top Kill ... The Cleveland Fed issued a report that looked at the historical relationship between lagged GDP growth and the ... market research, surveys and trends

Cleveland Fed researchers don't see double-dip recession
U.S. government bond yields “are signaling almost no chance of the economy slipping into another recession even as stocks and commodities tumble,” according to a Bloomberg story that cites research from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. “The 2.34 percentage point gap between yields on two-year and 10-year Treasuries is more than double the 20-year average and about the same as in 2003, just before gross domestic product rose 3.6 percent,” Bloomberg reports. “The so-called yield curve suggests growth won't slow to less than 1 percent and about a 12 percent chance of a recession in the next ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What is the difference between German & Greek Bonds? | LinkedIn ...
are these bonds different than the bonds?

Eurobond refers to any bond that was not issued in the currency of the Country. So, a Japanese corporation can ...
