In Mexico, March 18th is a Civic Holiday that celebrates the Anniversary of the 1938 oil Expropriation. It is a yearly reminder of the event that began with months of strike by Mexican oil workers protesting over meager wages and unsafe working conditions that concluded in foreign petroleum companies being evicted from the country.

The clouds have finally parted in Europe after 18 dismal months in recession, Eurozone GDP rose by 0.3% (an annualized 1.1% growth) in the second quarter from its level in early 2013 (Mirabile Dictu, The Economist). The upturn was led by Germany, with a GDP increase of 0.7% while France performed better than expected with output up by 0.5% (Mirabile Dictu, The Economist). Even Portugal, whose economy suffered a deep recession, posted a sharp rebound with GDP growing by 1.1%. However, dark clouds still linger as output continued to fall in Italy and Spain with both economies declining by 0.2% and 0.1% respectively (Mirabile Dictu, The Economist).
