Dutch government’s Covid-19 fiscal stimulus dwarfs the size of government response in 2008 crash. With large spending levels across Europe the Tony Blair Institute publish paper raising concern over interest rates. Other stories include Wirecard’s embattled CEO and Chris Giles attempting a nuanced tax discussion on Twitter.
Reuters covers Wirecard Scandal. Check out the earlier developments here.
If EY flags issues with Wirecard’s accounts, CEO Markus Braun’s position will be untenable. But even the auditor’s seal of approval may not save the chief executive from investors who want him out, writes @LiamWardProud: https://t.co/BImsifHO3D pic.twitter.com/yD9r05uenI
