The Greek Demonstrations Will Slow Down Dramatically!

Everybody thinks that the Greek demonstrations will continue. I am going to say they will slow down dramatically. Reason? In einem tödlichen Inferno eskalierten die Proteste in Griechenland.

Moody’s, Fitch’s and S&P Ratings Are Being Disingenuous

So here we go Portugal is placed on review for downgrade.
