Comments Off on The American Banking Sector Is On Life Support

The CNN story here shows just what a mess the banking sector is in. The sad thing is that the list of 250 banks ‘in trouble’ is only in the USA. When I clicked on the link, I was rather hoping that it was a global list. Perhaps it was less hope and more blind […]
