BBT News

A very happy new year..what a cliché, but so true! May 2019 bring what 2018 has  forgotten to you all, and that only in a positive way of course.

Worldwide we have plenty of stuff to talk about. The most interesting is the economic recession that might come, or not…. Some analysts state there’s a new financial crisis so short which might be even worse than 2008. Others say it will go down in 2019 but not as bad as it seems to show. The last group will tell you there’s nothing going on, the little dip on the financial markets in 2018 was just a small correction and everything will bloom again in 2019. All these analyst are well-studied, Doctors in economy or kind of and we can tell that they are all smart enough to back up their theories. Only time will show who’s right…:)

In Volkswagenland we don’t see dark clouds showing up. Of course the Volkswagen world is changing, but that’s happening since the first beetle appeared on a drawing board in the thirties.
