    • Letter from Lex: tapering & crunching
      Jun 21 2013 14:21 BST
      The US is tapering and China is crunching. As Ben Bernanke signalled an end to the era of low interest rates, US banks will benefit from a higher demand for loans as the economy recovers, but may see the value of their securities portfolios decreased. Europe's banks are also feeling...

    • Lombard: Tax breakdown rule would give avoiders the Willies
      Jun 20 2013 22:52 BST
      Cadbury is mythologised in the UK as a Quaker confectioner hijacked by greedy Americans. But an FT investigation shows the company engaged in aggressive tax avoidance in the years leading up to its acquisition in 2010 by Kraft. The let-down is equivalent to discovering that crack Oompa Loompa accountants employed...
