After a very busy week where central bank inaction rocked the markets, the weekend is here. It’s time to enjoy some long term reading and try to better understand what happened.
Draghi didn’t live up to his expectations, but August 2nd might be remembered as a day that changed the course of the European debt crisis.
Note to readers: the monthly outlook for August will be sent to subscribers after the weekend and not before, as planned. Here are the reading recommendations:
