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

I didn't mention Cyprus because there seems to be an genuine non-economic reason: the power plant explosion.
Yeah, the "external shock" cop-out of neoclassical economics.

About Cyprus: they have become an offshore appendage of the City of London where the banking sector has grown to 7xGDP. Were that not the case, an accident at a power plant would not have spelt economic disaster.

Economics is politics by other means
