With the ejection of the latin countries, does the Euro gain strength or weaken in the crisis? Do the latin governments default on their Euro bonds? Jim Winfield May 8, 2008 at 8:38 pm In 1999 I rea dup on this, Connolly and so on, and worked through what would happen.

By umemployment, inflation, downward wage-pressure, taxation, etc. Yup, the workers will be royally screwed. MikeinAppalachia May 9, 2008 at 11:12 am Interesting article.

It may be that Europeans over-estimate the solidarity of the USA. john b May 9, 2008 at 3:32 pm “As California drifts further into debt, becomming more and more dependent upon other states for its utility supplies, and its politics lean toward La Raza, it might be time to cut them loose and avoid a future Bosnia.” And I’m sure that the most prosperous state in the Union would be glad to stop paying federal subsidies to bail out the comedians in the rust belt, too… dearieme May 9, 2008 at 5:03 pm All they need do is attack Fort Sumter…… Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
