• Un articolo che si occupa del ritorno delle banche giapponesi sulla scena finanziaria, ricordando come quest’ultime fossero di grandi dimensioni e conosciute nel mondo, verso la fine degli anni 80′:  Back from the dead – The world has forgotten about Japan’s banks. Both Western and Chinese bankers should refresh their memory.
• L’articolo sulla politica Basca: Hold your nose, and let them run – Don’t feel sympathy for the descendants of the political wing of ETA. But don’t ban them.Questo tema viene poi ulteriormente approfondito nella sezione Europe con un altro articolo: Same, but different – The new political face of Basque militancy seeks legitimacy. Mentre nella sezione Europe: –  L’editoriale sulla riforma delle forze armate tedesche: The Teflon minister – Germany’s popular defence minister may survive a plagiarism scandal. Now he must show he can reform the armed forces e l’articolo sulla politica: Unhappy in Hamburg – Angela Merkel’s party a pasting in a state election –  L’editoriale sul presidente Ukraino: Viktor Yanukovich turns eastward – One year after his inauguration, the Ukraine president has taken the country in a more authoritarian direction. –  L’analisi sulla Macedonia: Scandal, Tension and turbulence – Another week in Macedonia –  La rubrica Charlemagne: No time for doubters – Europe must do more to support Arab democracy, out of self- respect and self-interestEditor’s highlights. LESS than two years ago, at the G8 summit in L’Aquila in Italy, Western leaders sat down to talk to Muammar Qaddafi. Today Libya’s tyrant is paying mercenaries to shoot his people in the streets like “rats” and “cockroaches”. With luck Mr Qaddafi will fall: we have a briefing from inside Libya. But our cover leader looks at how the West should deal with dictators. At the moment it is easy to say that you should never appease tyrants. In fact it is necessary to talk to them: from Tripoli to Moscow and Beijing, geopolitics and oil matter – and, as Libya also shows, people’s lives can be improved by engagement. But the events of the past month are a powerful reminder to Western politicians and businesspeople that cynical realpolitik – the assumption that in some places liberty will never prevail – can also be dangerously naive.
