Организатор российских гастролей Робби Уильямса — о последствиях их отмены

Отмена двух российских концертов Робби Уильямса, которые должны были завершить его тур в поддержку альбома «The Heavy Entertainment Show», стала полной неожиданностью для поклонников, разогретых рекламной кампанией, которая длилась целый год. Певец пожаловался на здоровье и был госпитализирован. А публика все равно строила разнообразные догадки. Эдуард Ратников, генеральный директор компании TCI, организовывавшей российские гастроли Робби Уильямса, по просьбе Бориса Барабанова дал “Ъ” подробные комментарии.

The investors who’ll pay to clean up after hurricanes Irma and Harvey


With Hurricane Irma hitting the Gulf Coast of the United States following Hurricane Harvey a little over a fortnight ago, investors holding catastrophe bonds for storms over these regions are likely to lose their money.

Financial losses of investors pale into insignificance against the death and destruction of the hurricanes, but insurance is big business and insurers have been offloading some of the risks to investors through the investment banks that create the bonds.

Winds of change for Belarus’ reinsurance industry?

ORIGINAL PUBLICATION HERE. Русский перевод здесь.

The longevity of Belarus’ president, Aleksander Lukashenko, owes as much to the structure of the country’s economy as it does to his sharp and often criticised leadership skills, which have resulted in a narrowing of the political space and the suppression of opposition.

Much of his legitimacy rests on an implicit social contract under which the government has traditionally provided security from the unemployment and inflation which ravaged other post-communist economies during the transition to free markets, in exchange for popular support. The government is able to provide such security largely through its maintenance of a Soviet-style system, where 75 per cent of the economy, and two thirds of the work force, remain state-controlled, together with large subsidies from Russia who is Belarus’ major trading partner.

EuropeanCEO: Bermuda is a world-class international business centre

Bermuda-business-centreORIGINAL PUBLICATION HERE 

With deep-rooted historical connections to Europe and a range of advantages in the corporate world, Bermuda is truly a world-class international business centre

Bermuda’s connections with Europe began in 1505 when Juan de Bermúdez first discovered the islands. They were first settled in 1609. In the Age of Discovery, when mariners crisscrossed the Atlantic to search for New World riches, they black-marked the reef-encircled archipelago as a cursed ‘Isle of Devils’. Today’s entrepreneurs and venture capitalists hold no such qualms about the British overseas territory, which is now recognised more for its reputation as a world-class international business centre than for its trademark pink beaches, ‘Triangle’ and shorts.
