German automakers collusion was the plot of Dieselgate?

German newspaper Spiegel cited documents submitted by VW and another by Daimler, purportedly revealing that Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW are being investigated by Germany’s Federal Cartel Office on suspected antitrust collusion over decades on technology relating to exhaust gas measures on diesel vehicles.  The report shows that the companies have been secretly meeting in various working groups since the 1990s, where they agreed on technologies, costs, suppliers and even how to work on emissions from diesel engines.

Assets under management at Julius Baer grew by 6 percent to 355 billion Swiss francs ($375.18 billion) in the first six months of 2017, the Swiss private bank said on Monday, roughly in line with analysts' estimates.  The private bank said it took in over 10 billion Swiss francs in net new funds from clients, one of the key business of the future.

Summer stalking on the Russel Index

The first person who introduced the concept of “stalking” in investing was Van Tharp when he described his Ten Tasks of Trading. One of these tasks was: “stalking your trade”. Just like a cat stalks its prey looking for the best possible moment to pounce, so a trader can stalk an entry to get the best price for entry.

Petrodollar under Attack

It is ironic that the fate of the US dollar depends on whether Saudi Arabia will continue to insist on accepting only US dollars for oil. The Free Thought Project had a good article by Jay Syrmopoulos on this subject on 16th July 2017, Russia and China Declare All Out War on US Petrodollar — Prepare for Exclusive Trade in Gold, which was picked up by Activist Post. It is the position of the US dollar as the main world reserve currency that has made it possible for the US to continue in its role as the global policeman or, as some would have it, the imperialist bully.

Former Credit Suisse banker pleaded guilty in a US trial over Tax case

A Swiss citizen pleaded guilty on Thursday this week for conspiring to defraud the U.S government while she was working at Credit Suisse.  Susanne D. Ruegg Meier admitted to a Virginia court that while working at Credit Suisse's North American desk in Switzerland from 2002 to 2011, she aided and conspired to help U.S taxpayers evade paying taxes on their incomes. She did this by concealing the earnings and assets of potential taxpayers in secret Swiss bank accounts.

IMF approved $1.8 bln conditional loan for Greece

The International Monetary Fund’s board on Thursday approved a $1.8 billion loan to Greece — but will only release the money if the country gets debt relief from its European creditors. The IMF has praised Greece for taking steps to reduce its budget deficits, including expanding its tax base and cutting spending on pensions. But the lending agency is pressuring Greece’s eurozone lenders to provide enough relief to ensure the battered country can pay its bills.

Expert Commentary: outlook on G20 summit

Some experts suggest that environmental regulations, such as the US decision to quit the Paris Climate Agreement, are likely to have a zero impact on the US economy. Do you share this point of view? Why? It depends on a period of time that you are talking about. I think that in the long run it has a negative impact. I believe that the energy sector, especially alternative energy sources, hold tremendous opportunities for economic growth. If the US is not going to push in that direction, then other counties will take that growth away. Thus, I think that within the next two years there may be no effect, but, going forward, it has a negative impact on the US economy.

MUSIC TECH STARTUP: PlumResearch focuses on data

Going out to the world with your product and building awareness is one of the most important things in building a startup, especially a b2b one.  MIDEMLAB is very industry focused and it's hosted at MIDEM the leading music business conference in beautiful Cannes.  It's very important for startups to attend these kind of events, but it's even more important to choose wise - those industry focused that really matter. For me it's music, video, tv, esports, research and big data. I don't attend every event I get invited to, especially the massive ones about startups or business in general. You need to have a business focused approach to these conferences and use them to schedule meetings with potential corporate clients and partners that visit these industry focused events - it's often the only way to get to talk to them as calls don't work too good with enterprises as a first meeting.  Many early stage startups or aspiring entrepreneurs make the mistake and go to every conference possible, they of
