Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

So can the banks then go to each state and say "Look, you sort this out in the way we want or no loans for anyone inside your state boundaries. everyone else will be getting them and you'll go down as the guy who turned the local state into a third world  country". Ok there will be a lot more palms to grease and a lot bigger chance of somebody somewhere blowing the whistle on the whole sordid deal but will states be easier to strong arm than the federal government?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
