    GE has owned its own bank for quite some time. I’m sure Siemens has wanted to do this for a long time, the Euro difficulties are finally giving them the excuse.

    @beowulf, And then, three years later, we would find out it was the same guy they scanned around over and over. And he isn’t feeling too good. But at least they made sure he was a notary.
