How is it that you have a blueprint for success/failure and we fall right in line behind the failures. Euro socialists policies are failing right and left and a monster meltdown is due.

Guess who is following right behind?

Man I bet Germany is falling over itself looking for ways out of the EU and all those weak ass economies. Probably the best argument I've heard for secession yet

"WHAT HAPPENED IN THE CRISIS, AND IT IS VERY CLEAR IN THE DATA, IS THAT OUR SYSTEM OF SOCIAL SECURITY AND RELATED PROGRAMS, INCLUDING MEDICAL INSURANCE, PROVIDED A MASSIVELY STABILIZING FORCE."

"WHAT WE ARE BEING URGED TO DO OR STAMPEDED INTO DOING WOULD IN FACT MAKE OUR SITUATION DRAMATICALLY WORSE, NOT BETTER, AND WOULD DO SO, I THINK, QUITE QUICKLY, IF THOSE POLICIES ARE IMPLEMENTED."

James K. Galbraith of Economists for Peace & Security


"THE REAL PROBLEM HERE, IN SO FAR AS WE HAVE ANY PROBLEM AT ALL, IS THAT OUR TAXES ARE SIMPLY NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO PAY FOR THE SPENDING THAT PEOPLE ABSOLUTELY INSIST ON HAVING."

"THEY SAY, "WE CANNOT HAVE HIGHER TAXES, BECAUSE THIS WILL DESTROY THE ECONOMIC GROWTH, BACK IN 1993, EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN ECONOMIST SAID BILL CLINTON FIFTH TAX INCREASE WAS GOING TO CAUSE A MASSIVE RECESSION"

"THEY WERE 100% WRONG, AND WE HAD A BOOM INSTEAD"

Bruce Bartlett Economic Advisor to President George H.W. Bush

It takes a pretty tiny mind to come to the conclusion that the Euro crisis was caused by free healthcare.

Oh, there will be plenty of butthurt to go around over the next 4 years and probably not just from the usual suspects.

Europe has a number of problems, but I can't imagine anyone would seriously argue that excessive government spending on social programs they can't afford isn't a big part of the problem in places like Greece and Spain.

The PIGS had no business being part of the Euro to begin with.

Economic standards were lowered to let them join. With the world economic collapse due to widespread banking corruption, the hens have now come home to roost.

Europe will need to need to either double down and become more centralized economically or the PIGS will need to go.

Then why is europe in the shape its in? Why are there strikes in spain? Why is austerity even on the table if smart people are in charge?
