    US is not 'on the cusp' of recession

    The Telegraph
    Speculation that the US economy has stalled is not only premature, it is wrong, says Ambrose Evans-Pritchard. Yes, there has been "a blizzard" of very weak data that have helped build the case for the economy bears, but it ignores fundamentals like surging work hours, job openings and a tightening labour market that should see purses loosen and cash flow into the economy. The recent GDP figure is undeniably atrocious but the world should not yet be quaking at the fear that the global growth engine is about to splutter and fail.

    Disruptive rivals ready to snatch clients from complacent bankers

    Cuffelinks.com
    While banks have been focussing on getting ready for Basel 3 and dealing with legacy issues from the GFC, there has been a seismic shift happening under their noses. Technology companies without the same legacies are adding banking products and services to their consumer services. Google (Google Wallet), Apple (Apple Pay) and Ebay (PayPal) have already taken their first steps into financial services and they will keep penetrating these markets given complacent incumbent players, above normal returns and huge cross-selling opportunities. A raft of smaller players are also attacking financial services from every angle – from online transactions, phone banking and peer to peer lending.
