Europe got quite a bit of oil and gas, or rather, Denmark and Norway has, as they have claims on The Arctic region, and The Arctic holds the world's largest remaining untapped gas reserves, a fucking goldmine. The Arctic Council(Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and the US) handle all this shit.
Just an example.
Greenland is believed by geologists to have some of the world’s largest remaining oil resources. Prospecting is taking place under the auspices of NUNAOIL, a partnership between the Greenland Home Rule Government and the Danish state. U.S. Geological Survey found in 2001 that the waters off north-eastern Greenland (north and south of the arctic circle) could contain up to 110 billion barrels (17×109 m3) of oil.

Shit like this actually goes through your fucking brain?
The main factor that allowed the crisis to be dragged on for years, enforce privatisations, austerity and recession, was the lack of national and democratic sovereignty: the Euro currency, the lack of control over fiscal policy. So fighting fire with gasoline hoses seems like a bad idea.
Fuck economy, if the Union is such a weak and counter-productive (from the view of integration and unity) institution that its leaders could ever even think that kicking a country out is a viable solution (which I'm glad they officially don't), then i don't want to be a part of it, then i simply regret my country wanting to enter next year.
OT: Europe doesn't need a bailout, most of its countries are either prospering or are doing okay. Either way, the situation is going to be resolved one way or another, Europe wont collapse because things like that simply don't happen with such huge economies. It's too stable for something like that to happen. Also, I'm kind of cheering for the EU to become a superpower at the moment and it giving a part of its sovereignty to China would kind of make that impossible, so no.
PS: I wouldn't agree to USA doing it either.
I think Europeans are too proud for that. I think they'd rather do it the old fashioned way... revolution.
Blocking a cheap trade with china would fix the economy in my option. Right now you get all the stuff cheap and all the money goes into a china while your produces cant keep up with prices. If there is a demand for 1 thing--there are jobs. If there are jobs--- well you know the story.
hahaha silly europeans.
No, since first of all "europe" isn't one country but at most a union of countries (while idiotic laws may point otherwise) which also means the debth each country has is different. Its bad enough with cases like Greenland where they come in with thousands of chinese workers and potentially destroy the surrounding inviroment in their search for minerals.

The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.
Spain could arguably stay though.

In the face of democracy, really now?
Its fine to help countries that might have done some bad choices and are having difficulties due to economic cinrcumstances unique to them. But this is not the case here. This whole mess is because of goverments that are corrupt to the core.
