Europe bad and good By 19 febrero, 2019 No Comments

by Jan Goller

It was more than two years ago when the British voted about remaining in the European Union or not. But still there isn’t any certainty about the future of the UK in the EU. Will there be a soft Brexit with an agreement or a hard one without any convention or any Brexit at all?

In fact, the withdrawal agreement scheduled the British exit of the EU on 29 March 2019. But untill now the politicans didn’t find any agreement about a soft Brexit. Therefore in the worst case we would have to face a hard brexit whose impact will be omnipresent.

China’s current economic situation seems to be a bit strange at a first glance: While its economy is growing more slowly than the years before and the debts are rising, the Chinese government invests money into local infrastructure. Experts from the global rating agency S&P predict China to face this year a faustian choice between growth or debt reduction. Planned stimulus to boost output and business sentiment in China could undermine the country’s deleveraging push. This leaves policymakers with a tough choice between missing targets on growth or on reducing financial risks.

Eating healthy and veggie is “in”: More than 50 % of the Spanish population have tried in the last twelve months a meat alternative (like hamburgers made of vegetables). The discount supermarket chain Lidl wants to adjust itself to the new preferences of its consumers and gets involved in the veggie revolution”.



Fruits and vegetables in one yoghurt? This sounds strange, doesn’t it? But exactly this did the shop and describes itself as the first grocery store chain to offer yoghurts with fruits and vegetables.

New data shows the sweet spot for entrepreneurial success, and why young people need to rise up the ranks more quickly. There’s no question the domestic workforce is aging.
