Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sicknesses with fever used to have a crisis point, bevor antibiotics, where it was make it or break it. That means if they made it, the worst was over and recover, thought at times slow could start.

Lets hope this is the point, and that recovery can now begin. However, hopefully, by not trying to restore the old way, but by using this opportunity to create something more solid and just. Though I have my doubts, not that i think it is not possible, but I doubt that it is possible with the current people in power.

Listening lately to economists here on TV I would say it did not even start yet...long fall in front of us...
Here they (treasurer)say (maybe just to please us) that "if you want to be at the best country in this crises it would be Australia"...but they may just daydreaming...

Most people in the US are still trying to figure out why this is a problem for them.  I fear we have a long way to go before a majority find out.  That may not happen until after McCain's inauguration.

I do agree that we should hope to create something more just and lasting out of the ashes---because I refuse counsels of despair on principle.
