Italian government to bailout Monte dei Paschi

Italy’s Monte dei Paschi di Siena failed to open with the rest of the market Monte as shares have been suspended, after plunging more than 6%. This follows the bank’s admission yesterday that its private 5-billion-euro recapitalization had failed. The Italian state is now gearing to rescue the ailing lender by providing a 20-billion-euro boost aid. The world’s oldest bank is rapidly running out of time as it has only managed €2 billion thus far, while key Qatari investors chose not to invest a €1 billion chunk. The news that the MPS is heading for a bailout has begun to drag on the rest of the European banking sector, with Deutsche Bank, Barclays and Lloyds sliding along the charts.

Honda in talks over self-driving cars with Alphabet

Car manufacturer Honda and Google’s parent company, Alphabet, are currently formal talks to co-develop self-driving vehicles, according to statements made by Honda representatives on Thursday. This new venture comes just months after the US firm signed a deal to use its technology in Fiat Chrysler minivans. The prospect of a deal between Honda and Alphabet’s self-driving unit Waymo, will help reduce the high cost of developing reliable automation software by teaming up with already established technology firms rather than attempting to doing it alone. It is worth noting however, that Honda also stated that any collaboration with Waymo did not mean it was abandoning efforts to develop its own autonomous driving system.
