Davos and the end of the euro

It’s been a week and a half again, but without many bank scare headlines thank goodness. Instead, we have lots of headlines of politicians and business leaders attacking the banking industry.  It all starts in Davos, with Chinese premier Wen Jiabao blaming America’s “unsustainable model of development characterised by prolonged low savings and high consumption”,…

Should banks stop advertising?

In a post that I’m sure will get a response from some folks (Jeffry?), February’s Banker Magazine (I write a monthly column for them) dropped onto my doorstep this morning with the front page: "The World’s Top 500 Banking Brands".
