    About bloody time!

    This is what needs to happen here. I haven't seen one bank being fined as much as this yet. But here we are in a state of austerity paying for the banks mistakes, whilst most of them are in their Dubai hideaways. Makes me sick!

    I'm not sure many if the people genuinely guilty will have lost much by this. But if it makes it less likely to happen again (for a while anyway) ...

    Well another bubble is growing as we speak, fueled by the Governments right to buy mortgage scheme. Guess who's making money like 2001 again?

    Nasty. They're not alone. Wonder how long it takes before Accenture come under newsmedia focus.

    "Steering the bubble..". No help to me though, as my landlord has decided to put my flat on the market thanks to this bubble. :|

    Let's start the new year on a positive note:

    The Power of Free Money

    In the 2010 report "Just Give Money to the Poor," researchers from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development give numerous examples of money being scattered successfully. In Namibia, malnourishment, crime and truancy fell 25 percent, 42 percent and nearly 40 percent, respectively, after grants were given. In Malawi, school enrollment of girls and women rose 40 percent in settings where money was given with or without conditions on its use. From Brazil to India and from Mexico to South Africa, free-money programs have flourished in the past decade. More than 110 million families in at least 45 countries benefit from them.

    It is time to apply these lessons to rich but increasingly unequal societies. A world where wages no longer rise still needs consumers. Middle-class purchasing power has been maintained through loans, loans and more loans. The Calvinistic reflex that you have to work for your money has turned into a license for inequality.

    Legend has it that while Henry Ford II was giving a tour around a new, highly automated factory to union leader Walter Reuther in the 1960s, Ford joked: "Walter, how are you going to get those robots to pay your union dues?" Reuther is said to have replied: "Henry, how are you going to get them to buy your cars?"

    I always get really fucked off when these New Year retail reports come out, it's almost we're getting guilt tripped and blamed for not buying enough SHITE

    You lot didn't buy enough shite, buy more shite because the economy won't recover if you dont, signed, cunts who slam the stock exchange because morrisons didn't make 100 million more profit than they said they would.
    Can I swear more please?

    Personally I think it's quite interesting how our (food) shopping habits are changing. Most of the big boys are struggling yet the two extreme ends in Aldi and Waitrose are doing better than ever.

    I'd hate to have to fight my way around a supermarket to do the weekly shop so love being able to do it all online and it seems a lot of the British public feel the same.

    Not really, you don't have to be rich to shop at Waitrose. We do all our food shopping with Ocado yet buy all our household stuff like washing powder and dishwasher tablets from the local Aldi as it's so much cheaper.

    It's more about treating yourself for certain things and saving with others.

    Even if Argentina wins their position then folks will lend them money again. There's money to be made with other people's money so someone will decide they like that offer.

    Anyway, won't this only effect lenders under US jurisdiction?

    If this is the story I think it is, isn't one of those investors actually Spain?

    In any case, Kirchner or whatever her name is will probably be chucked out within a few years and things will change again.

    LOL

    I like the way they do business in Argentina.

    Plus they have good steaks and hot women. Admittedly the crime rate and impending economic collapse put a bit of a dampner on the whole thing.

    Sounds like a Falklands invasion is needed to distract everyone.

    That's what much of foreign policy is really about. Of course, some are more pathetic than others.

    The great thing is, that although most countries will support any crackpot state with a grievance against GB on the basis of redressing 'colonialism', that support disappears when the possibility of losing money arises. Hence, Spanish support for the claim on the Falklands has disappeared. For now, anyway.

    Really, they ought to invade again. There's little the UK could do about it, other than send a couple of destroyers to hunt non-existent submarines, and an aircraft carrier with no aircraft.
