A decade after the financial meltdown, its underlying problems haven’t been fixed

The banks have, to a certain extent, changed their ways: but cheap credit, low interest rates and mountains of debt are still with usTen years ago this week, the global financial crisis started with a small rumble in France. Local bank BNP Paribas announced it was freezing the assets of three hedge funds with heavy exposures to the US sub-prime mortgage market. A little more than a year later, after the run on Northern Rock and the bailout of Bear Stearns in the US, the full earthquake arrived in the form of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, one of Wall Street’s biggest banks.We soon discovered the full horrors within the financial system. Banks had taken on risks they did not understand and called the process “innovation”. Credit rating agencies had fallen asleep. Weak or incompetent regulators, encouraged by politicians, had been idle. In the UK, RBS would be mostly nationalised and the ailing HBOS was shoved into the arms of Lloyds TSB with a state bailout to follow. Continue reading...

Sainsbury’s finds itself in hot water over Fairtrade tea | Letters

The supermarket’s chief executive thinks the Fairtrade movement has become outdated, but Richard Webb disagreesMike Coupe is mistaken (Sainsbury’s under fire for dropping Fairtrade on tea, 6 July) in suggesting Fairtrade (and the Fairtrade mark) has become outdated. The Fairtrade mark is widely recognised and information is readily available for anyone unsure what it stands for (see the Fairtrade Foundation website). “Trying to bring clarity” to an environment with many different standards and labels (try to name more than three, Mr Coupe) by introducing yet another is not likely to succeed.History suggests that by taking back control, Sainsbury’s (following a lead by Cadbury) will bring benefits to the company and its shareholders rather than to its partner producers in the developing world. I will continue to buy only tea and chocolate that carry the Fairtrade mark (thank you, Co-op).Richard WebbPenistone Fairtrade Town Continue reading...

Move by UK supermarkets threatens to bring Fairtrade crashing down

Tesco is to join Sainsbury’s in changing the branding of some ‘fairly traded’ productsWhen four Sainsbury’s executives met farmers from some of Africa’s biggest tea-growing co-operatives in a hotel in Nairobi last month it should have been a mutual celebration of Fairtrade, the gold standard of ethical trading and the world’s most trusted and best-known food certification scheme.But instead of backslapping at the Pride hotel, the world’s largest retailer of Fairtrade products precipitated the greatest crisis in the scheme’s 25-year history by telling the 13 major tea groups and their 228,000 co-operative members that it intended to drop the globally known Fairtrade mark for their produce, and replace it with the phrase “fairly traded”.

England’s Demarai Gray steps from bench to seize centre stage

After a season on the periphery at Leicester the forward has made an impact for England in the European Under-21 ChampionshipIt seemed Demarai Gray had been waiting to answer the question for some time. Clutching the boots which had just helped England reach the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championship on Thursday night for the first time in four attempts, the forward who learned his trade in the junior section of Cadbury Athletic – the non-league club in Birmingham’s south-western suburbs, affiliated to the world-famous confectioners, that produced Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge – twiddled his headphones in his hands and thought for a second.“It is all about opportunities,” he finally replied when asked about the key to his development. “Playing at first-team level is how you progress the best. You learn about the real game. Managers have to trust you and give you a chance. If they do, we will have more English talent coming on show.” Continue reading...

KitKat v Kvikk Lunsj: which four-fingered chocolate bar tastes best?

Nestlé has been trying to trademark KitKat’s shape – but is its taste equally distinctive? We put it and its doppelganger to the testSay what you like about Nestlé, but it is certainly dogged. This week, the court of appeal rejected its attempt to register KitKat’s four-finger shape as a UK trademark, but that it is just the latest stage in 11 years of Europe-wide KitKat legal wrangling between the Swiss food manufacturer and one of its competitors, Cadbury.

The confectionery multinational Nestlé has lost the latest round of its long-running battle with rivals Cadbury to trademark the shape of the KitKat bar in the UK.
