Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A top flight analysis, and I'm very pleased that you are vigorously fighting the criminal spin.  The great horror for in trying to wrap my mind around this whole nefarious situation is summed up neatly in your point on investment.

What we could do with the level of funds behind the prop-up!  Beginning with wind and solar, there's enough work and positive effect to society in general we could already be working our way out of this pit the bankers threw us in.

Potshots at Germany's stable banking system indeed.  Arschloch.

yup, i'm so furious about this when it's put so directly...

i'm seeing red right now....gotta relax....

it's as stupid as setting ourselves up for 50 years with the EU as the USA and Russia acting the role of the middle east.

it makes me want to scream, people, don't you get it?

how the convenience of banks has led to their having a silken cobweb of dysfunctional codependency permeating throughout every level of society.

i see a future where the words 'bank' and 'government' are fused as one, they are so obviously symbiotic.

failed economies, failed states, what's the difference?

let's stop the pretence already!

failure proves we're as bound at the hip to economy and policy as siamese triplets, the big change we can hope for is to make it that profits are nationalised and redistributed, not just losses.

the biggest problem before of socialism was it stifled innovation because of no decent market incentive.

the rise of free stuff on the internet points to a cultural shift since it was last tried.
