Although some creditors took a hit along the way, the primary purpose of the bailouts was to preclude Greece from lightening its economic burden by writing off its debts. Germany, France, and Italy wanted to save their banks. European Union leaders desired to move continental consolidation ever forward. Along the way the EU and European Central Bank ignored their own rules to shovel money Athens' way. The price paid by Athens was austerity and reform, which the Greek people greatly resented. Why should they have to pay for the party that the Europeans were well aware was likely to occur when the Eurozone inducted Athens? Perhaps even worse, however, there has been far less reform than austerity in Greece. Economic officials talk about creating a "business-friendly environment," but that's not evident in practice. According to the World Bank, Greece was number 61 in the world in "ease of doing business" in 2015.

It's out of the question. I'm more interested in what you think. What do you think? We think that it has nothing to do with the governments. Although, we also have some evidence that some foreign special services might stand behind some very, very tense attacks against our banks and against our, well, our official websites. Are you trying to tell me that the Russian actions in the United States, in Germany, we believe in Britain too, according to our intelligence agencies, are they retaliation? No.

"Malaysia as a country needs to align itself to this new reality and keep abreast of the latest developments," he said. Mustapa further reiterated Malaysia's commitment to pro-growth policies, despite the challenging economic conditions. "We have invested heavily in infrastructure as evidenced through recent key projects such as the mass rapid transit and Pan Borneo Highway and will continue to invest in major infrastructure such as the high-speed rail which will further improve the business environment," he said. "This will also improve the connectivity within and beyond Malaysian borders, hence enhancing our competitiveness in the region," he added. Meanwhile, he said Malaysia, in its quest to continuously improve its approach in attracting investment, was now adopting a more holistic strategy by working closely with consulting firms, banks, private companies and diasporas.

MUMBAI: Rising instances of cyber attacks on banks had led to SWIFT, the global network that enables trillions of dollars transfers each day, to introduce a Customer Security Framework that mandates its member banks to upgrade their systems or face the threat of naming and shaming among other member banks. Under this framework, banks have to adhere to 16 mandatory controls and 11 advisory controls, and requires each bank to confirm compliance on an annual basis.Banks which fail to adhere to these controls will be reported to the Reserve Bank of India as well. “There are certain mandates that we are making within the community now and if they don't comply with it, we will be publishing their names in the system,“ said, Kiran Shetty, CEO, SWIFT India. “So, for example, if I am a bank and if you want to send me some money , you will be able to look at my credentials related to cyber security and make your decision whether you want to deal with that bank or not.

right that it has a better solution to their problems. Populists, including Trump, Nigel Farage and Marine Le Pen, have primarily mobilised white voters on low to middle incomes working in skilled or semi-skilled jobs in industry and services or running small businesses – plus pensioners. Theresa May’s favoured term for this group is people who are “just getting by”. They have seen their incomes and future prospects stagnate; stable jobs in manufacturing replaced by lower-paying less stable ones in services; and their access to welfare become restricted – and even contested – following the financial crisis. This has stoked their opposition to mass immigration, political correctness and reckless banks and corporations. They increasingly believe the welfare state shouldnt give special treatment to minorities or the “undeserving poor”. They are patriotic both for cultural reasons and because they believe the nation state can protect them against the excesses of globalisation and technological change.

(Wealthier borrowers generally do not fit the program's criteria.) The Obama administration's Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Julian Castro, renewed the rate reduction just a few days ago on the grounds that first-time home owners needed help to access the market at a time when mortgage rates were rising. Congressional Republicans, including incoming HUD Secretary Ben Carson, opposed that decision. They worried that, by reducing the amount that homeowners are asked to pay each month, the FHA's insurance program would collect less cash. The FHA uses its cash reserves to underwrite banks when high risk borrowers default on their mortgages. Without large reserves, taxpayers could be on the hook to bail out the banks. The FHA required a $1.7 billion bailout in 2013, when its reserves dried up. By allowing homeowners to contribute less to the FHA fund, the Obama Administration was putting taxpayers at greater risk for footing the bill for another bailout, House Financial Services Chair Jeb Hensarling of Texas said in a statement Jan.
