Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Nothing will begin to change long term until the pain is so acute; we demand the cleanup of the corruption in both government and business and make social justice the highest priority of our society. Free enterprise is fine as long as it is not detrimental to the basic needs of most of the society. In order for this to be fathomable; we will need a completely new reulatory structure.

The corruption is so entrenched there has been no quid pro quo reregulations in exchange for the bailout of the insolvent finance system.

Until we are forced to make demands and 'man the barricades' ; nothing will happen structurally and all we will be doing is prolonging a very sick capitalistic system.
