I shouldn't really write about things I know nothing about. But I will be naughty again.
PIGS is the word, Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain. Economic basket cases bailed out by the European Union. After the Icelanders rejected paying money to the profiteers in England, what happened then? I don't know. Every other Euro Union country is not doing well economically. Italy's economy is not examined because of the preoccupation with Berlusconi's shenanigans.
All of Europe, even its premier countries are not performing well economically. If I was in charge one of these premier countries, I would be pushing for a European Union subset of countries, those who are financially responsible. Hive off all the spendthrift build on the never never countries. Scandinavia, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and perhaps France, get rid of the rest. They will drag you down. Oh, they are already.
So given nowhere in Europe is doing well, and the European Union has bailed out a few countries, where is the money coming from? Is it the gnomes of Zurich? Is it the Jews of New York? Perhaps it is Chinese money? Certainly not Japanese money now. They need theirs. Surely it couldn't be Arab oil wealth?
Just to pin it more precisely, European countries are not doing well. Some are broke. Some are being propped up with huge amounts of money from the Euro Union, but where is the money coming from?
