            Greek debt swap deemed a technical default. Does that mean the CDS bomb is going to go off?

              "Those payouts on CDS linked to Greece are expected to be something the order of $3.2 billion US".

              Small fry. For now.

                No surprise that it was seen as a technical default. Wonder who the markets will go after next week. Spain, Portugal or Italy?

                  Year of the central bank
                  March 12, 2012
                  Sunday Business Post by David McWilliams

                  "...I thought to myself that when this guy was head of the Federal Reserve, after a bout of inflation he raised interest rates to 20 per cent to purge the system. Last week, the same short-term rates in the US were 0.2 per cent. Could the greatest monetary splurge in human history be followed by a Volker-style whiplash in interest rates, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a generation?..."

                    Greg Smith resigned as a Goldman Sachs executive director and head of the firm’s United States equity derivatives business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and fires a parting shot via an open letter in the NYTimes.

                      Fair play too him and its not often that the H.R guys dont have it in contracts to reduce this type of bad P.R from people leaving. They mustnt have been able to buy him off. Im sure he will get a flood of clients following him to his next business venture.

                        The High Court has granted leave for a challenge to the legislation underpinning the household charge on the basis that it is in English only.

                          I wanted to start a new thread/poll to see the feelings of posters here regarding the household charge as the deadline gets closer. I see the box to tick for Polls, but when I click preview I cannot see any options. Wanted to ask posters if they either

                          a. Have already paid
                          b. Will probably pay just before deadline
                          c. Are holding off until after the deadline to see what occurs
                          d. No way Jose

                          In my own case, having given the Govt, 17 grand in property taxes in 2008 (Stamp duty) I think I've already done my bit on that front. They've had enough!

                                To create a poll when you post a new thread, simply click the 'Yes, post a poll with this thread' checkbox at the bottom of the page, and set the number of possible responses you want to include.


                                When you click the submit button, you will be taken to the poll creation page, where you can specify the question and the list of responses you want to include.


                                You may also want to specify a time limit for the poll, so that (for example) it stays open for voting for only a week.
