    Sure was socialism driving those austerity measure everywhere. Fixing the economy thru austerity measures is about as effective as going on a diet plan that involves cutting of a leg. Sure you will lose weight but really was it worth it in the end. That is what austerity brings to the table,

    I blame everything on socialism.

    It is essentially the root of all our problems. I would try to explain this further with some examples, but sadly the majority of people are incapable of understanding free market economics and how essential this system is to maintain individual freedom. People don't understand the difference between corporatism/fascism and capitalism. True capitalism is void of government intervention and thus regulated by society, not government. In fact, libertarians are much more socialistic than socialists. Socialists blame government for all there woes, but there grand solution is the justification that only government can provide safety and security from the big evil corporatist, thus they create more government to solve the problem. Its like taking a shit in a blocked toilet and expecting it to disappear, or like pouring petrol on a fire and expecting it to go out, or printing money and expecting it to solve your economic problems, just like in the US and EU at the moment.

    On topic: Nothing will solve the EU. It is over, the dream of a united Europe is failing, its proven to be impossible and if by some chance it continues to remain in tact, it will not be a free state, but rather a state of sheep run by wolves.

    Three or four strong nations can't bear the weight of a handful of faltering ones. What a surprise.

    I'm not big on libertarians, but I don't blame all of the world's ills on them.

    Yikes those unemployment figures are daunting. I think some apron strings need to be cut or things might just keep getting worse.

    Indeed, the problem is clearly that Europe just hasn't had stringent enough fiscal policy post financial crisis.

    People who think like this should be forced to live in Somalia for a year to experience all the joys of living in an unregulated environment.

    Yes the Euro is in crisis, but be very afraid then the dollar pass it tipping point and China say sorry we cant lend you all the money you want. Your salvation is that China is to scared to say that, who know where it will end if US do get "real" credit problem.

    I want to slam my head into a desk every time someone expresses this ill informed view point. Care to offer any evidence of the idea that lending is about to just seize up? Interests rates are at rock bottom, which suggests the opposite.

    Yeah well I bet you're going to regret voting Obama when China calls in their debt and all the street names get changed to mandarin for our new overlords.

    Sorry did edit my post then you did replay, China is to scared to throttle the favorable lending US are getting. Who know what will happen if US get credit problem, one thing is sure, US will not be able to buy Chinese goods at the same rate as now. BUT sometime in the future they will have to set the foot down.
