Citi’s latest 48-page “Global Economic Outlook and Strategy” report is out, providing commentary and forecasts on where the bank thinks the world’s major economies are headed. 

Dogged by fiscal “episodic uncertainty,” the euro area and the U.S. face “persistent tail risks that could derail the gradually improving economic outlook,” writes Citi’s chief economist Willem Buiter. “But, the most likely outcome in both the US and euro area is that policymakers will do enough to avert a crisis, even if this involves further ‘kicking the can down the road.'”

As for China, Citi continues to see “major concerns about the medium-term sustainability” of growth despite the country’s Q3 rebound.

“More broadly, although delayed Fed tapering may provide supportive near term liquidity conditions, we continue to see downside risks to growth in a wide range of other EM countries, amidst sluggish world trade growth, plus the buildup of EM imbalances (fiscal, current account, private debt),” he wrote.

In the report, Buiter’s team breaks down what’s happening in each economy. We pulled out the highlights.

UN BLOGERO LONDINENSE EXPLICA QUE SERIA MAS BARATO PARA EL VIVIR EN BARCELONA Y VOLAR A LONDRES

 

London Blogger Claims It’d Be Cheaper For Him To Commute From Spain Than Live In His Own City

The cost of living in London has always been high, but recently it has been getting out of control, with real estate asking prices jumping a shocking 10% in October, for example.

This level of housing insanity has prompted some crazy solutions to the horrible expense of London life. For example, Sam Cookney, a blogger based in London, theorized on Twitter that it’d be cheaper for him to rent a two-bedroom in Barcelona, Spain, and commute to work four days a week than live in a one-bedroom in the U.K. capital:
Cookney decided to publish his theories in a blog post, and it appears that he’s right — in fact, he might be able to afford a three bedroom apartment in Spain.

Cookney reasons that he’d need around £1,697 a month for rent in the area he’d ideally live (the admittedly fairly nice West Hampstead), if he includes tax and travel. That’s €1,979 a month or $2,700.

How far would that money go in Barcelona? Well, Cookney looked towards the upscale Les Corts and found a fairly average three bedroom apartment for a flat rate of €680 ($933) a month. He found cheap flights from a nearby airport worked out to around €57 ($78) a day, even factoring in the costs to and from the airport.

In total, Cookney claims, he would live in Barcelona and commute to London four days a week for around €1,592 a month — a €387 discount ($530) on life in London, with two extra bedrooms.

Whatever the logic of Cookney’s argument (four hours of flying every day is not an ideal lifestyle, certainly), it has hit a nerve. His original blog post has now been shared seven thousand times at the time of writing and picked up by the Daily Mail and even appeared in Spain — a bit surreal for a blog devoted to finding “the best burger in North West London.”

Unfortunately, this does seem to be the new reality of the largest city in Europe — a London where Londoners dream of commuting from Spain, and Spanish expats with multiple college degrees live cleaning toilets.

LOS 12 MEJORES AVIONES PRIVADOS QUE PUEDEN COMPRARSE EN ESTE MOMENTO

The 12 Best Private Planes You Can Buy Right Now
ERIK SOFJEMEN’S JOURNAL

Nothing, it seems, can ground private aviation.

Despite the high costs for planes and fuel, the waiting lists for recent and yet-to-be-released planes are growing, and nearly every major general aviation company has put a new model on the market in the past year or so, or plans to.

“Thirty years ago, there were more people getting into flying for the pleasure side of things,” says Scott Fank, VP of sales at Illinois-based JA Air Center, which sells private aircraft, as well as providing training and maintenance. “Nowadays, we’re seeing more people fed up with airlines and fed up with security. So they’re looking to private aviation.”

Buying a plane is, in effect, buying a time machine that enables you to accelerate domestic or international travel by hours, or turn a four-hour stop-and-go drive into a 20-minute hop. That’s why, even as companies like NetJets and Wheels Up try to convince fliers to buy fractional shares of planes, the wholly owned private aircraft remains a viable product. Here are the most exciting, appealing, or flat-out audacious models – available now or soon enough to place a preorder.

In the last 24 hours, two awesome pieces of news about Martin Scorcese’s ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ film have broken — first, that it  will hit theaters on December 25th, and second that there’s a new trailer out (you can watch that below). 

We’ve already taken a look at the script, written by Terence Winter, and luckily a bunch of the most awesome scenes seem to have stayed in the movie.

You can check out scenes from the movie script here (spoiler alert)>

The movie tells the story of Jordan Belfort, a Long Island kid who rose to become a millionaire penny stock scammer and boiler-room boss.

Back in the 1990s, Belfort ran Stratton-Oakmont, a Long Island-based pump and dump that found itself on top of the Wall Street world. Think: Drugs, hookers, parties with performing midgets.

And then it all came crashing down. Belfort went to jail for 20 months and lost everything.

Check out the new trailer below:
