2 Billionen: Die neue Schuldenlatte für GB

Nachdem der Staat die Sicherung der Bankschulden �bernimmt, ist nun eine Revision der Staatsverschuldung �ber 2 Billionen bald offiziell.

“Spending will rise sharply over the coming months as unemployment surges, while the deep contraction in activity will continue to reduce tax revenues,” said Andrew Goodwin, senior economic adviser to the Ernst & Young ITEM Club.

“We expect the Chancellor to be forced to make significant upward revisions to his borrowing projections when he presents the Budget. ITEM expects Public Sector Net Borrowing to rise above �130bn in 2009/10.”


Putin stellt Kürzungen der Gaslieferungen in den Raum

Russia-Ukraine gas crunch could strike again, Putin says

Konflikt mit Ukraine entscheidet �ber Liefermengen nach Europa.

EUOBSEERRVER / BRRUSSELS – Europe might face gas cuts anew this winter, but would get a “detailed” advance warning this time, if Russia decided to turn off the tap to Ukraine over their price disputes, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday (4 December) during a televised question-and-answer session.

“We are now assuming that we will meet no problems in gas transit to Europe. If Ukraine, however, fails to comply with transit terms, or taps gas bound for Europe, we will have to cut back on our supplies to Europe,” the former president said.

Effektiver Vertriebskanal: Spam

Spam rechnet sich noch immer
0,00001 % response (12,5 mio mails = 1 Antwort) = 7.000$ tglich
“After 26 days, and almost 350 million email messages, only 28 sales resulted,” says the research paper.
Yet even with this apparently abysmal response rate of less than 0.00001 per cent, the researchers still estimate that the controllers of a network the size of Storm are still bringing in about $7,000 (4,430) a day or $3.5m (2.21m) over a year.

Piraten bedrohen die Lieferung von Weihnachtsgeschenken

No Nintendo game this Xmas? Blame Somali pirates

Fri Nov 14, 2008 11:15am EST

By Stefano Ambrogi
LONDON (Reuters) – Alarmed at the growing number of attacks off Somalia, international merchant shipping is edging closer to doing the unthinkable in peace time: by-passing one of world’s most vital trade routes.

Somali pirates have been plundering ships off the Horn of Africa for years, but the recent surge in attacks has spilled out into the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea, threatening access to the Suez Canal.
Now big firms employed in moving everything from oil, gas and coal to toys, are urgently considering whether to travel round South Africa’s Cape of Good Hope instead.

“Despite all the publicity over piracy it will really hit home when consumers in the West find they haven’t got their Nintendo gifts this Christmas,” said Sam Dawson of the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF).
