This weeks news you may have missed...

Dear reader,

Ed's mission across Eastern Europe continues with Hungary and Slovakia conquered and Poland now in sight.

As there will be no newsletter this weekend, below are links to news stories that you may have missed last week.

Note the continuing mishandling of Novo Banco and what looks like another botched sale.

The taxpayer was never going to be recognised or compensated in this 'solution' from the Bank of Portugal where, on top of the billions already thrown at the new bank to get it started, billions more in State liabilities form part of the proposed sale to Lone Star.

Portugal's financial system, when being discussed on my travels, often is lumped in with those  of Italy and Greece. The way the Bank of Portugal has been run makes such observations understandable...

Until soon,

Ed
