  • Greece, LTROs, "highly abusive" tax schemes and living wills Mar 05, 2012
  • The banking team discuss the critical week ahead for Greece and wonder if the LTRO has provided a false sense of security. They also take a look at the Barclays tax schemes that the UK government legislated against, and how the world's largest banks are still a long way from completing the "living wills" that spell out how they will be stabilised or shut down.

    Presented by Patrick Jenkins, with Richard Milne, Brooke Masters and Sharlene Goff.
