per capita, Ireland is ranked as one of the wealthiest countries in the OECD and the EU-27 at 5th in the OECD-28 rankings as of 2008. In terms of GNP per capita, a better measure of national income, Ireland ranks below the OECD average, despite significant growth in recent years, at 10th in the OECD-28 rankings. GDP (national output) is significantly greater than GNP (national income) due to the repatriation of profits and royalty payments by multinational firms based in Ireland. 1 A study by The Economist found Ireland to have the best quality of life in the world. The 1995 to 2000 period of high economic growth led many to ...
Speeding tickets are just the beginning in a long road to budget ...
Now I swear to you that I’m not looking to draw attention to my speeding ticket and honestly the whole thing would be over for me (traffic school and all), if I didn’t catch the following story in one of my incoming subscription newsletters today. It’s one of those coincidences, that may not be coincidental at all. After reading how many cities and municipalities in the US are in deep financial trouble, I can’t help but wondering what the status is here in Fernandina Beach with regard to increased road attention. Personally I have not witnessed any service cuts yet, but then again I may be a little ... market research, surveys and trends

!" Contagious pigs, carriers of swine plague. A plague called debt, with which they have infected Europe. When one of the Pigs defaults, its creditors are also at risk of bankruptcy. The other European Countries must rescue the Pigs in order to save themselves. In terms of debt to European nations, Greece owes 236 billion Dollars, Portugal owes 286 billion, Ireland owes 867 billion, Spain owes 1,100 billion and Italy, the most contagious of all, owes 1,400 billion. The Pigs are even indebted to each other. Greece owes Portugal 9.6 billion Dollars, which in turn owes Spain 58 billion, which in turn owes Ireland 14 billion. ... market research, surveys and trends


The Mother of All Bubbles: Huge National Debts Could Push Euro ...
Greece is only the beginning. The world's leading economies have long lived beyond their means, and the financial crisis caused government debt to swell dramatically. Now the bill is coming due, but not all countries will be able to pay it. By SPIEGEL staff. Savvas Robolis is one of Greece's most distinguished economics professors. He advises cabinet ministers and union bosses. He is also a successful author and a frequent guest on the country's highest-rated talk shows. But for several days now, it has been clear to Robolis, 64, the elder statesman of Greece's left-wing academia, that he no longer has any ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
CME Buys 90 Percent of Dow Jones indexes in joint venture - GLG News
CME Group paid 600 million for the indexes of the Dow Jones.  They issued debt to cover the cost, along with a stock buyback.  It was a defensive move for CME.  CME has been unable to innovate a meaningful new contract since introduction of the emini-S+P in 1997.  A huge volume producer, in reality the emini was simply an electronic mini version of their larger S+P contract.  Interestingly, none of the other emini contracts CME has listed in any other products(currencies, ags) has had any traction.  Only the emini S+P, and emini NASDAQ have had success.  Recently, the Ultra Bond has increased ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Is Obama losing the economic argument?
Barack Obama was in effect stretchered off the field at the G20, having failed to persuade fellow world leaders to sign up to a further round of economic stimulus. Instead, the final communiqu� was an austere affair, promising efforts to curb government spending, reduce deficits and start reducing the mountains of debt. In the World Cup of Economics, it was Austerity 4, Stimulus 1. And in the US? While the President has been admonishing others on the international stage, he appears also in danger of losing the same arguments at home. Congress has three times failed to pass a new mini-stimulus aimed at extending benefits for the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Europe cuts deep, the US spends on
the United States stands out among the world's leading economic powers for trying to spend its way out of the downturn. "The U.S. wants economic growth at any and all costs," said Axel Merk, president of Merk Mutual Funds, a Palo Alto, Calif.-based money manager specializing in currency investments. That's a stance that many economists are growing increasingly worried about -- especially when you consider that the United States has about a $13 trillion debt load and is projected to have a record-high $1.56 trillion budget deficit in fiscal 2011. This may be a bone of contention at the upcoming summit of so-called G-20 ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

BBC News - Europe's PIGS: Country by country
But this is how the financial markets refer to the troubled and heavily-indebted countries of Europe - Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain. (Some analysts use PIIGS to include Italy - Europe's longstanding biggest debtor.) Greece has dominated the concerns of investors since late last year, when concerns over whether it will be able to pay off the 300bn euros ($419bn; £259bn) in government debt it currently owes. The euro has been battered over the past month as some even started to fear the break-up of the eurozone. Now the European Union has agreed a deal to rescue Greece - with perhaps other wrecked economies to be ...

Will the PIIGS survive? | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
Some time ago, the PIIGS seemed poised to destroy the Euro and the existence of the European Union. Those fears have dissipated after a trillion euros committed by the Central Bank to plug all the leaks. Will that be enough? Will the austerity measures have the undesired short-term consequence of economic stagnation by reducing capital from the markets? In summary, is Europe in worse of better shape than the US, and thus will the Euro-Dollar ratio move up or down by year's end? Is it safer to buy gold at this lofty levels? posted 5 hours ago in Currency Markets PGDip, PMP, MBCS, CITP, CSM, CSP, MCMI. Exceptional Project ...
Is it a coincidence that mostly the non-Protestant countries are ...
I heard some analyst refer to those countries as PIIGS (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain). I guess their economies are affecting the EU/Euro. Not a very nice acronym. I know Germany and France also have decent sized Catholic populations, but is there such a divide, economically, in Europe? I don't think so. It's a dog-eat-dog world. You can't be too nice and compassionate or your opponents will eat you up and spit you out. Everything is like that in the world. It's all about competing, and there's a lot of prejudice and bias if you don't "fit in" to whatever ...
