Saxo Bank, the online trading and investment specialist, today releases their Q3 outlook that views Europe as insolvent, in a phase of denial of the actual problems and without a credible path forward. The Bank’s analysts also predict that growth in China will decrease to 6.5 percent, marking the next quarter as the low point for China and for world growth in general.
For the current crisis, Saxo Bank operates with a three-phase model that includes; Denial (which prompts policy-makers and central bankers to rely on quantitative easing and financial stimulus); Protest (where the public votes new governments which still fail to address the real problems) and; Mandate for Change (which forces policy-makers to take real action). According to the Bank, the EU has remained embedded in the first and second phases, having yet to arrive at a mandate for change.

The question is whether to buy an entire vineyard or just a bottle of tequila - the answer to this question doesn’t always depend on the price. While normally nobody would even give it a thought, a fine tequila distillery in Mexico has filled a bottle that probably will not change hands for any less than 3.5 million U.S. dollars - the equivalent of an unbelievable 2.5 million Euros. Prince William and Kate would be surprised, as a bottle of their wedding Champagne only costs a mere 165 euros. German TV legend Günther Jauch is more interested in the products of his own vineyard - from which the quiz master learns a lot, as he says.
Colum Egan, Master Distiller at the Old Bushmills Distillery, is set to launch a global competition - 'Make it 2 Bushmills' - that will see him take the world-famous distillery on tour.
Colum is offering two friends the chance to work alongside him for two weeks, to learn the skills of whiskey-making that have existed in the Bushmills area for over 400 years, GBP5,000 spending money to share and the chance to stay in luxury accommodation on Ireland's north coast. Then he will pack up the best bits of the Old Bushmills Distillery to go on tour. Destination? The winners' home country.
