All - I posted the below on one of Karl’s threads before Philip’s thread appeared on the specific topic. So am just repeating the same comments under this more relevant thread. Patrick Honohan (or the “Governator” given his threats of enforcement upon banks and others) addressed NAMA, Basel 2, failures at the regulator, the banking crisis and other topics in a speech last night (Tuesday 1 December) to the annual Financial Services Ireland dinner. I have uploaded a copy of the speech at in which I have inserted comments on some points raised by ...
Increased TV ad time threatens radio - IBI
The Broadcasting Association of Ireland�s proposals to increase the amount of advertising allowed on commercial TV stations from 10 minutes to 12 minutes each hour will create an uneven playing pitch, threatening jobs and the viability of independent radio stations, according to the Independent Broadcasters of Ireland (IBI). “There is no measured demand from either viewers or advertisers for an increase in TV ad limits so we are at a loss as to why the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) is seeking to change the rules on advertising and teleshopping,” said Scott Williams, chairman of the IBI, which represents ... market research, surveys and trends

The “system” is designed to serve the needs of those who manage it, not those who own it. Until accountability is reinforced by prosecutions there will be no changes. How did Australia avoid these problems? Robert Browne Says: June 17th, 2010 at 11:54 am Patrick Honohan seems to be so happy with his own report that he wants to slow things down. Maybe as governor of the CB he wants to play for time in terms of “limiting” the damage to our banking system, ‘going forward’ as the politicians like to say. Restoring confidence in banking and investigating what happened are different things. We were ... market research, surveys and trends


FiveThirtyEight: Politics Done Right
out of West Virgina tonight: the state legislature has resolved its differences and determined to hold a special election to replace Robert Byrd in November, rather than waiting until 2012. Joe Manchin, the popular incumbent governor, is expected to announce as the Democratic candidate. This will shift attention to the state's lone Republican representative, Shelly Moore Capito, who represents the second district which cuts through the middle of the state. Under the terms that the legislature agreed to -- apparently with Manchin's blessing -- Capito would be allowed to run for both the Senate and House simultaneously. industry trends, business articles and survey research

(Source: Bloomberg) More than 7 out of 10 in the U.S. say the economy is mired in recession, and the country is conflicted over how to balance concerns over joblessness and the federal ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Stocks get lift as earnings season in full swing
Corporate earnings will be a key focus this week as investors hope to recover some of Friday's steep losses. The Dow Jones industrial average rose nearly 50 points in morning trading Monday after falling 261 on Friday. Other indexes also rose. The forecasts companies issue will be pored over for signs that growth will pick up in the second half of the year, despite some discouraging signs from economic reports. Earnings and outlooks will be even more important this week when there are only a few economic reports due out that could provide insight into the pace of recovery. Halliburton Co. delivered some encouraging news, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Michael Brennan: If you want positive attitude, Taoiseach, try it yourself
IT was miserable across most of the country yesterday morning. And the credit ratings agency Moody's certainly added to the gloom by downgrading us. It was enough to make RTE's 'Morning Ireland' host Aine Lawlor quip ruefully that it was raining and the country was broke. But could this have been the comment that tipped Taoiseach Brian Cowen -- a keen 'Morning Ireland' listener -- over the edge? When he made his first public appearance at the Department of Agriculture's laboratory complex in Backweston, Co Kildare, yesterday, he was quick to accuse the media of "pervasive negativity" ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Why is the market reacting so dramatically to the Greek financial ...
the market is fixating on a Greek default (bond yields on Greek govies going up) which makes that Greece still has to pay more for the debt it takes - Greece is part of the Euro area which has its impact on the euro currency - due to the economic crisis, Greece's GDP is not as hoped (and not enough to repay the rising interest burden) - Greece got support from EU and IMF but needs to increase the tax burden and cut in wages of government employees, which leads to strikes In a nutshell: there are just a lot of reasons why the market expects that Greece could go default. If Greece defaults, this surely has its impact on all ...
