• India’s domestic air travel market worst performing: According to IATA, India’s domestic market is the worst performing aviation market in the world. The 12.4% plunge seen in October 2012, is the highest in the world. This is majorly being blamed on the high operating costs for the carriers, with a distinct lack on the govt’s part to rationalise jet fuel prices.

UK banks face shortfall: In the light of the fact that the Bank of England requires UK banks to meet its valuation policies, UK banks will need to raise £20-50 billion to meet requirement or dramatically restructure their businesses.
