Panic in Europe

Italy to ban short selling and France is rumored to soon follow. When governments try to deny reality, you know they’re doomed.

    Don’t you wish you had your place in Montana or Wyoming ??

    • Well I do have, almost, a place in Montana. In 1973, while hiking through the Bear Tooth Wilderness Area, I caught and we ate an Arctic Char. A few days later a camping store owner told me that the species had only recently been introduced into the state and no one had yet recorded one so, had I kept it, I could have ever-so-briefly been the record holder!
      But yeah, if I had the money, I’d love to have a piece of real estate out west.

    Exactly correct. You do not fix a problem by sticking your head in the sand and hoping it vanishes. You fix it by hunkering down and doing the hard work that is required.

    Maybe one day we will have politicians who realize this – or, should I say, voters who are willing to vote for the politicians who will implement this?

    We are witnessing the slow crack-up of the European welfare state at the same time our country is continuing to move in that direction. Our policy choices under Bush and Obama have doomed us to at least another decade of economic stagnation. Madness, all self-inflicted.

    you want austerity ?

    drastically reduce or military/defense budget. bring our troops home, all of them from western europe, japan, korea, afghanistan, kuwait, iraq.

    USA is a warmongering country, just look at our history from 1945 on.

    LLS2 – I suggest you revisit your history. Countries without a stong military eventually get marginalized and/or their asses kicked.
