Zehn Jahre nach dem Schock: Alles wieder gut?

Posted by hkarner - 3. Oktober 2018

Die Herausforderung für Banken, für Kunden da zu sein und nicht in alte Verhaltensmuster zurückzufallen, bleibt bestehen.

Zehn Jahre nach Lehman Brothers stellt sich immer noch die Frage, wie das damals alles passieren konnte. In diversen Kommentaren zur Finanzkrise wurde das ausführlich abgehandelt. Und für Kunden von Banken und Versicherungen, die durch die damaligen Ereignisse teilweise massiv geschädigt wurden, ist jetzt ohnehin etwas anderes wichtiger.

America’s Allies Must Step Up as America Steps Down

The order that has structured international politics since the end of World War II is fracturing. Many of the culprits are obvious. Revisionist powers, such as China and Russia, want to reshape global rules to their own advantage. Emerging powers, such as Brazil and India, embrace the perks of great-power status but shun the responsibilities that come with it. Rejectionist powers, such as Iran and North Korea, defy rules set by others. Meanwhile, international institutions, such as the UN, struggle to address problems that multiply faster than they can be resolved.

Boris Johnson said he sought “to try with all humility to put some lead back into the collective pencil.”

BIRMINGHAM, England—British Prime Minister Theresa May’s arch rival Boris Johnson laid out a challenge to her leadership, touting his credentials to become the U.K.’s next leader amid a deep rift within the Conservative Party over the government’s approach to Brexit.

At the annual conference of the Conservative Party, to which both Mr. Johnson and Mrs. May belong, Mr. Johnson repeatedly attacked the prime minister’s plan for quitting the European Union.

The wild-haired Mr. Johnson, who quit as Mrs. May’s foreign secretary in August, said Tuesday he sought “to try with all humility to put some lead back into the collective pencil.”

In a wide-ranging speech from health care to housing, Mr. Johnson spelled out his vision for Britain. But at the heart of his manifesto lay a promise to ditch Mrs. May’s Brexit plans, which he said would result in the U.K. being “paraded in manacles.” Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
