The biggest story of the last week has to be the decision by the Czech National Bank to cut interest rates to an all-time low in the face of a weakening global economy. The overnight discount rate for commercial bank loans was cut by half a percent to 3.75 - the first time the rate has ever dipped below 4 per cent. Other key interest rates were also cut by half a percent.
