Sunday Business Round Up 11 Nov
Mutley asked me to widen the number of sources I use for this round-up banner was the best I could do, a bit of a failure. Click through for the fantasy world that it describes....
Back in the business world, the tremors are still being felt and we can't yet see if there will be another huge earthquake:
Barclays' to bring forward trading statement - Perhaps there is nothing under the bonnet after all?
HSBC to admit worse to come - Allegedly there is more pain to come from HSBC, always the most honest of the British, indeed, global, banks.
Credit crunch good for savers - Not quite the returns people are used to though...?
Are Sunday Paper's doomed? - A good piece of research from the Guardian here.
China buys into Rio Story - Not Rio Ferdinand, but more sovereign fund investment in resources companies.
New bidder for the Rock - maybe, but no one is saying what to do about the hole in the books..
Branson on CGT - The man who walked with brown produces a knife for him after all.
EU to neuter Ofcom -More powers to Brussels away from our domestic regulator.
Irwin Stelzer - I nearly always disagree with Irwin, but good to see a counter-factual comment in The Times.
BA nears Iberia deal - This is one private equity deal that may still get done.
