“As long as interest rates continue to climb by central banks (ECB, fed, bank of England/Japan, etc) expect more bank failures in 2023. The latter will be forced to liquidate long term bonds, assets and holdings to serve short term depositors & investors” – Stathis Kassios

“Πρέπει κάποια στιγμή επιτέλους το ελληνικό ελαιόλαδο να εξάγεται ως brand, έτοιμο προς αγορά και κατανάλωση και όχι να τυποποιείται από άλλες χώρες οι οποίες αποκομίζουν και την υψηλή προστιθέμενη αξία του” – Stathis Kassios

Εξάγουμε ελαιόλαδο, αλλά και τεχνολογία

“Organization of the Petroleum Export Countries (OPEC) cutting down oil supply not only means raising energy prices for countries that rely heavily on Brent and Crude oil imports like India, but also means tougher -monetary policy- work for FED and other central banks amidst taming global inflation and the recent banking crisis” – Stathis Kassios

“Το κατά κεφαλήν ΑΕΠ στην #Ελλάδα διαμορφώθηκε το 2022 στο 68% του μέσου όρου στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ενωση και είναι το τρίτο χαμηλότερο μετά τη Βουλγαρία και τη Σλοβακία” –

“The banking system as a whole does not depend on Silicon Valley Bank. Other banks are not dependent on loans from SVB, or on lending to SVB, and if SVB’s assets are dumped in a fire sale, it will not make other banks suddenly insolvent. Thus, we are not at risk of a true financial contagion” –
