The story of Ireland's rise from rags to riches is the kind of success story Americans love — especially those 35 million of Irish descent. Two decades ago the country was an economic basket case, and its relationship with the United States, while always a strong one, was based largely on a shared culture. Now this nation of four million has the second highest gross domestic product per capita in Europe. (Luxembourg has the highest.) As shown in Figure 1 on p. 288, Ireland surpassed Germany and France in per capita income in 1998 and is fast approaching the level of the United States. Figure 2 on p. 289 shows that the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Only Seven European Banks Fail Stress Test, but Was It Too Easy?
The institutions that failed the test -- the ability to maintain at least a 6% Tier 1 capital ratio during a severe recession -- were five Spanish savings banks, one Greek bank, and Hypo Real Estate Holding, a German commercial real estate lender that has already been taken over by the government in Berlin and will be recapitalized. My take is that the tests were basically not that stressful," says Win Thin, a senior currency analyst at Brown Brothers Harriman in New York. "The numbers seemed to me a little too low and a little too nice." For example, the Committee of European Banking Supervisors found that the 91 ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
