The Norwegian Krone is strengthening again this Monday (Nov 28) against all major and important currencies. This is not good news. The country has lost nearly 50.000 jobs in export related industries and compensated by increasing jobs in the public sector by 40.000, still keeping the unemployment rate around 3.3%. As an example 10% of the OECD work force work in the health sector, in Norway it is 20%.

If the economy in the rest of Europe continues to exacerbate, new worries will raise since tourism may be strongly affected next year. Who wants to go to Europe’s most expensive country with an empty valet?

This will also have an effect on next year’s salaries. For years the unions have managed to push through far too high levels resulting in a lower ability to compete – continuing like this and the fall will be hard.

Interest Rates

And with interest rates still growing in Italy and Greece and the Germans starting to see the same problem things are not exactly looking very bright.

The Norwegian Central bank will be forced to cut its rates and this time just a minor 0.1 – 0.2 may not be enough.

With a constantly growing interest rate in Germany, Greece, and Italy, with problems in Spain and Portugal the EU countries soon will have to show proper leadership.

I have been accusing the Obama administration for being weak, but whilst Obama is stuck between two camps still unable to break through, the two European major powers France and Germany are performing a silent fight on who’s to give in. France is in a big need to find protection for their highly exposed banks. Germany is not willing to throw in enough support afraid of becoming the looser, whilst it also may be that they are on far deeper water than exposed so far.

England has most likely more than enough with handling own problems and not being a Euro member they will have to follow their own path out of the misery. We are left with one option if the Euro is to survive, Germany and France will both have to chip in heavily and do it now. That will force the smaller countries to follow and take the bitter medicine dictated by the Germans; No help unless substantial cuts have been agreed.

From the rhetoric of the Norwegian PM this will also make it easier for him to put substantial funds into the rescue package.


Online Reputation Management is a new industry with a growing potential.

Helmword is an Online Reputation Management (ORM) company located in London and Hong Kong. The company offers companies and their executive’s services that enhance the clients profile in the search engine search results in terms of content and ranking.

The objective of Helmword is to expand to a turnover of £30m and a net profit margin of 25% within 5 years.

Executives are increasingly alerted to the fact that their own and their companies reputation are out there on internet 24/7 and that more and more people, be it consumers, business partners, investors, suppliers and government institutions are consistently using Google and other search engines to obtain information about them. The need to monitor and control companies and individuals identities has increased dramatically with the usage of the Internet.

The founders and management of the company have extensive experience in Legal, PR, IT business development, and project management together with a large international contact network among potential clients as well as potential employees in different parts of the world. In addition the founders have over the last year tested the concept, the market and the willingness of the clients to pay for the services at the levels demanded. These tests have been very encouraging. The company is looking for partners and may also be interested in the right investors, enabling the company to accelerate its expansion.
