Dollar Screams Higher

Recommended Posts

In fact, FOMC member Poole said in his speech today that 5.25 percent rates is “reasonable given what we know.”

Other interesting snippets from the news today -

There are large differences in union density among employees in the nations: the highest (40.4 per cent) was in Northern Ireland and the lowest (27.9 per cent) was in England. The majority of union members are women.

And consumer debt again -

Meanwhile, the Co-op Bank warned yesterday of an "unprecedented" level of consumer debt and a significant rise in bankruptcies. Profits at the bank fell from £114.3m to £96.5m in 2005.

The lenders are suffering 20% bad debts on total lending, but no problem until the shareholders cotton on. ;)

Perhaps because unions (and Labour) no longer fight for the rights of working men.

Looking into the Co - op figures in a bit more detail the CEO is shaving 100mil of costs, they have lost 100mil. V. Serious IMHO. <_< They did not go for it the way so many other banks did, they maybe left in the slipstream..
