ref :- "Central Banks warned on inflation risk" , The Financial Times , International ref :- "Next financial crisis to hit "with a vengeance" ", The Daily Telegraph, Business All financial media outlets will have something on the Bank for International Settlement's (BIS) annual report, released yesterday. The BIS is known as the "Central bankers' Central bank" ..... well, it does look after their money after all, but one suspects that their reputation as the safest pair of hands around also reflects the respect it commands in financial circles. The point is that when they speak, people tend to listen ..... and what they've had to say will be a little disconcerting for some, not least some ce

Thursday 8th June 2917 Economics, Geopolitics or History ? Answer : All of the above .... ref :- "Wall Street turns a blind eye to Trumpian risks" , AMERICA by Edward Luce, Comment, The Financial Times We're making a big effort NOT to discuss the three big events taking place today (even though each one could prove a market-shaker in its own right) on the grounds that we've already "been there, done that" this week.

Banks and larger financial institutions tend to steer clear of making

Why start banging on about Thursday already ? Is there nothing else to write about ? Well , of course there is .....
