u.k. have been sounding the alarm over the influx of immigrants from romania and bulgaria after brussels lifted the employment restrictions for them the sheer but latest figures show the number of those coming from the eastern european countries to work in britain has actually dropped since then meanwhile many brits are choosing to leave the u.k. and settle down in remain near as artesia piece going off. as. you know michael is british but spent most of his life outside the u.k. his father worked in the military and the family's done its fair share of globetrotting but it's in romania where mike decided to settle down and open a bore he's been running for five years now the opportunities out of my life in my chest still the nightlife you know i like to party and that's one of the reasons why i went into this business i love the people the clients the kind of chance you know and the medium seem more than welcoming since the beginning of this year

. hello there i'm marinating this is boom bust and these are some of the stories that we're tracking for you today first up u.s. prosecutors have reached a settlement over fraud claims b.n.p. perry bought that will see the french firm temporarily banned from trading in u.s. dollars i repeat banned from trading in u.s. dollars i mean this is a pretty big deal and we'll look into its implications on the global banking system then poland roche's on the program today colin is sitting down with me to discuss the u.s. economy are we finally thawing out after a brutally rigid start to the year world discuss coming right up and in today's big deal edward harrison and i are talking about the current conflict in iraq and help the potentially imperiled the oil markets you won't want to miss
1:27 am
a moment to it. our lead story today american banking exceptionalism in the framework of the b.n.p. dispute now right now a french bank b.n.p. perry ball is being investigated for a laundry money for the sudanese and the iranians u.s. authorities are looking into whether b. and p. evaded u.s. sanctions between two thousand and two and two thousand and nine and whether the bank stripped out identifying information from wire transfers in order to pass through the u.s. financial system without raising any red flags and allegedly covering up forty million dollars in transactions now u.s.
1:28 am
regulators are currently working out settlement terms with the banks which are expected to him. roughly eight or nine billion dollars in fines the fines will settle charges that the bank was doing illegal business however on top of the cash payments the french bank is also being pressured to plead guilty to a crime that crime scene conspiracy to violate the international margins the economic power act now a guilty plea will consequently allow regulators to temporarily bore b.n.p. from processing any dollar payments at all now this is a very big deal the ability to process and move money in u.s. currency is vital and i mean to be n.p. the department of financial services is also weighing whether to bar dollar clearing for the whole bank or just certain units more closely responsible for the alleged money laundering now if regulators were to ban all of b.n.p. from processing in dollars they would likely go out of business so yeah like i said
1:29 am
big deal now understandably french authorities are livid and they're saying that they can't understand what b.n.p. did wrong in the first place as the bank hasn't broken any french laws now journalist felix salmon recently wrote in the financial times the following no other country can get away with this what we are seeing is unapologetic american exceptionalism manifesting as extraterritorial power mongering using financial regulation as a vehicle for international power politics is extremely effective it is also very cheap compared with say declaring war now i have to say i agree with felix completely what the us is doing is tantamount to what our dear friend mr jim rickards calls financial warfare now here's the question why are laws set up in the first place to keep order to help the system operate smoothly and to bring justice to those who are wronged so.
