    •  I'd be curious to know what the average German... (0+ / 0-)

      ...thinks of being lied by their pols.

      A recent poll shows that 70% of Germans want less Europe, not more.

      But Germans politicians couldn't care less about the rank-and-file.

      They are so committed to this grand ill-fated artificial construct known as the Eurozone, that they can't admit that they're wrong.

      I disagree with almost everything Milton Friedman ever said.

      But he was on point when he predicted disaster for the EZ, over one decade ago.

      •  the EU financial mess was avoidable (0+ / 0-)

        just as 2007 was... The Euro was not a guaranteed fail... but some did see what the pitfalls could be. And others were gunning for it from day one... and were not the friend of the EU or its citizens but only out for what they could get out of helping destabilize it... an easy thing to do for the right entity in the right places. And Wall street and transnational banks all led the stampede to grab as much and game things against their rivals regardless of the havoc they were set on creating while paying pols off to stay in denial and to keep anything from stopping them
