Amazon to BUY Whole Foods…..Banking & Pharmacy next….?

Hi Guys,

Well, what I had been expecting has finally happened. Amazon has been playing with Food delivery for a few years with its PrimeFresh offering.

It found out that delivery of package foods was reasonably straight forward. As what is the difference of a TV against serials? Just the Past Best Date.

However, fresh meat, Fish, Paste etc.. was more […]

Bank of Dave

Well, here we are again.

This chap was given the run around by the FSA for they were concerned. Shame they were not so concerned when the Libor rigging was occurring, that they sat on knowingly, since 2008 by the major banks.

But, of course, anyone who comes up with a straightforward money loaning option to small businesses, is grilled within an […]

UK banks set up business lending taskforce?

I use to have a Bank Manager that looked at the Business and then made a decision based on the income coming into the company and the credit worthiness of the companies we had contracts with. […]
