Lobby groups, led by the BDI Federation of German Industries and labour unions, made a last-ditch appeal to lawmakers to back the changes to the European Financial Stability Facility. Germany, Europe’s largest economy and the single biggest contributor to the aid, sends more than 40% of its exports to euro-region countries and has the most to gain from an intact monetary union. President Barack Obama for the second time this week criticised the response of European governments to the continent’s debt crisis, saying the turmoil continues to be a drag on the US economy.

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou pledged success in the struggle to restore budget balance in a speech to the German Industry Federation. Fresh from winning parliamentary backing for a property tax to meet deficit-reduction targets required to avoid default, Papandreou said that Greece will live up to all its commitments and deserves "respect" for its efforts thus far. He noted that from a "huge" primary budget deficit in 2009, Greece would probably see a primary surplus next year. SPAIN’s central government budget deficit narrowed in the eight months through August, bolstering the nation’s chances of meeting its deficit goal even as regional administrations fall behind their targets. The central government reported a deficit of 2.83% of GDP, compared with 3.28% a year earlier.

Meet the office 'slasher'

The slasher generation has arrived. We’re not talking about a figure from a horror movie, but the person who has a whole string of job titles like musician/teacher/script writer. Typically Gen Y, these trendsetters are reshaping careers and organisations. Demographer Bernard Salt says you can see Generation Slashie everywhere. A lawyer might run a blog or be working on a movie script. A market research expert might be putting in time as a film producer. A graphic designer might be running a bar, says Salt. The average baby boomer was married by 21, had their first child at 23, and by their 25th birthday were locked into a mortgage which meant they needed the security of a stable job, he says. “Whereas you remove all that - Gen Y aren't getting married early, they don't have kids or a mortgage, they're educated and confident and do what they want for 10 years before settling down so they'll trial this, they'll trial that,’’ Salt says. “It's…

避免陈词滥调像瘟疫蔓延

如今,现实电视已经控制了我们的屏幕,几乎经常在屏幕前放松,就可听见“改变生命的金额”,或“这是一个情感的过山车”。 但商业世界,就像把英语弄乱,重整成一个毫无意义的表达或混淆的最低公分母。 在1946年的文章,政治和英语一文中,即著名的学究,乔治奥威尔的文学样式指南中,他写了一张短语单,把他认为应该被禁止的,包括他称之为死亡的隐喻都列在上面,如“以不同的方式”,“循规蹈矩”,“干对某人有利的事”,“软肋”,“天鹅之歌”和“温床”。 他不喜欢口头虚假用语,如,“使不起作用”,“妨碍”,“引起”,“表现出的倾向”。 “接触”,或“给理由”。他抱怨对矫揉造作自夸的文辞;诸如“现象,元素,个体(作为名词),客观的,明确的,有效的,虚拟的,基本的,初级的,促进,构成,展示,开拓,利用,消除和清算”。 奥威尔的不可接受清单中包括毫无意义的单词如,“阶级,极权主义,科学,进步的,反动的,资产阶级和平等”。从语言上来看,事情并没有自奥威尔的时代而有所改善,因为他不会长时间呆在在今天的办公室,一个典型的管理会议或简报会驱使他疯狂。 独立时报的约翰任图,最近公布了他觉得应该被禁止的100个单词和短语,其中许多短语可能在你的办公室时常出现。这些包括: •哪些部分的X你难道不明白吗? •超越或更多的方式 •任何很快的时间 •学习曲线 •提高认识 •包容 •社区,尤其是一个充满活力的 •名人 •心和头脑 •改头换面 •生活方式 •展望 •一个前瞻性的政策 •一个大的请求 •在这个时刻 •不适合用途 •黑洞(在金融方面) •房间里的大象 •完美风暴 •密封处理 •换游戏 •进步 •讽刺性的 •行动(作为一个动词) •参数 •大量 •平衡(一个动词) •掉头(作为动词) •让我们说清楚 •在这一天结束时 •有机,当与种田或科学无关时 •一个没有脑子的人 •不喜欢什么 •相当独特的 •范式转换 •步骤变化 •海变化 •醒来和闻咖啡香味 •持续的 •项目 •议程,不包括形容会议内容 •非常规思考(我会添加蓝天思维) •雷达,尤其是在一个下面或上面 •利益相关者 •交付 •重点,特别是主题演讲 •已经足够 •请参阅我在那里的行为 •推出,除了从地毯,墙纸或日志上得来 •前瞻性规划 列出你不喜欢的话清单,这似乎相当累赘的,但我同意上述所有的短语并有更多的不受欢迎。主要的罪魁祸首是电视节目主持人和电视真人秀的参与者,但大多数专业使用懒惰的简写,通常表明懒惰思想。广告及市场推广,特别是善于转换一个自命不凡的短语,但在这一天结束时,甚至记者们需要唤醒自己,闻一下咖啡的香味。见我在那里做了什么? 请加入在我们LinkedIn讨论小组的奥威尔式的辩论,并通过电子邮件发送任何你不喜欢的短语或词句给我们。 Nigel Phillips
