Under generally accepted “rounding” principles, that would usually be rounded UP to €4bn !!! But, NOT today !!!!! One nights interest accumulation on €700m @ the ECB Rate of 1.00% would sort out my financial situation !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But, nevermind me, €700m is a very large number !!!!! @ Frank You must be loaded mate!!!! Comments are closed.
