Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is it just me or the (current) optimism of EuroTrib members about Yurp is proportional to the credit rating of their home nations?

Also possibly to their age.

It's certainly not proportional to my personal credit rating. :)

In my case, i didn't give a thought as to various credit ratings. Nor to all the delusional religious psychopathy about economics.

i was pontificating from my tunnel vision watching Germany, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands and Spain (and soon Finland) selling their wind turbines and technology around the world, including into the US, UK and the BRICs. I think about Spanish and German solar plant the same way, although there California has given the US a base of its own.

Then i was thinking of the growth in organic produce in parts of Europe. And a general attitude regarding sustainability.

More likely my view is based upon grandiose doses of wishful thinking, which i spend most every day trying to make good.
