Europe’s battered banks are far from crisis

efinancialnews.com — When confronted by a falling market, one naturally assumes that someone somewhere knows something, that the market must be possessed of great insight.

thetimes.co.uk — The traditional answer to the question "why is the stock market down today?" is that "there are more sellers than buyers". But obviously this rarely satisfies anyone. There's a natural tendency when confronted by falling markets to assume that someone somewhere knows something, that the market must be possessed of great insight.

Even Cameron’s small gains are seen as big concessions in Europe

thetimes.co.uk — David Cameron's renegotiation of the terms of Britain's membership of the European Union has been derided as a gigantic missed opportunity that achieved very little. Yet this is only half-right. It's true that the prime minister dropped some of his most eye-catching early demands - including an opt-out from EU social and employment law - even before the process started.

European banking union hinges on Italy taking the correct turn

thetimes.co.uk — Is history repeating itself? Three years after the euro was launched, Germany and France were allowed to break the single currency's fiscal rules. This often is seen as the eurozone's original sin, undermining trust between member states and paving the way for the subsequent breakdown in fiscal discipline.
