Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the world is awash in cash, most of it deployed and/or locked into economically useless fol-de-rol.

exactly... hoarding fertiliser when the fields need it, trying to squeeze oil out of seabeds when we could grow it, etc etc.

my shed is bigger than yours, my rig taller, sigh.

they love money so much they're choking it to death by clutching onto it so hard.

suffocating their very own golden goose with greed

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
