President Cloward-Piven’s plan is working!
Well, these folks don’t seem to optimistic.
They don’t have to implement anything.
All they have to do is parade to the microphone to announce that they have agreement among all parties to commit whatever funds are required to achieve stability.
Complete BS, no details at all, or maybe a few teaser details to give it credibility, and a few days later Germany will say they won’t fund it.
Then they’ll have another meeting and another microphone parade to say they have reached another agreement.
This is all markets manipulation by governments now. They will do anything to keep the pretense in action.
Seems to me the Eurozone is doomed. At what point do they just agree the whole thing didn't pan out, that a common currency didn't work, and let the whole thing dissolve. I think it's happening anyway. What are the forces really behind the desperate attempts to hold it together? Germany complains a lot, but it strikes me their industry is massively benefiting from the weak Euro and skepticism of some of the other economies in the zone.
I'd love to really pick the brain of someone who really knows these issues inside and out.
Of course, at the time, the solution was obvious -- throw about $1T in made-up money at the problem to keep the world economy from imploding. Well, here are 3 years later, another collapse seem imminent, and the one thing that S&P has made clear is that throwing vast quantities of made-up money is no longer an acceptable option.
Personally, I think that massive -- massive -- amounts of de-regulation and tax cuts would jump start our economy and generate world-wide economic growth.
But I know that won't be considered.
I think in the end, the US, Europe and even possibly Asia will finally realize that too much unneeded regulation of the economy and the progressive multi-rate income tax are both BAD ideas. I wouldn't be surprised we see within the next year at least an income tax overhaul revolution around the world as country after country changes their income taxation systems to encourage savings and investment locally.
