3:20 pm
your children bet against the future steal from the future steal from your population and apparently when you remove that element of the equation your economy grows like a real free market right i mean you've got a war on terror and it's interpreted in two different ways in the united states or going after men in caves that are probably long sense departed and in europe they're getting rid of the real terrorists goldman sachs and as a result their economies are now doing much better. and you can watch the cars reporting just ten minutes from now here on t.v. time now for the business update with daniel. well it's a business the results of european bank stress tests to friday evening have been looming over the markets the tests are intended to reassure investors of the

ripples in the banks by revealing their exposure to it and capital adequacy earlier i spoke to paul michael senior foreign exchange strategist at h.s.b.c. bank in london. the result would be what effect it might have on the markets a number of the european banks are going to go through this try to transparency argument to try and demonstrate to the market about who is going to be strong and who's going to be we can try to get a sense of how is the european banking system actually been holding up through this crisis so that's all tomorrow on this is what the key focus point is indeed going to be how is that going to potentially impact the markets. well i think with what we have to realize is that there's been a number of officials coming out over recent days suggesting that. the banks in respective countries seem to be in good shape in that they're going to pass these these stress tests there's been a couple of banks saying that they could possibly fail but perhaps the market already had a good feeling for this those type of failure candidates i think really perhaps
