Or the fact that Balrogs have wings.
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

We could try to put it back on track: The biggest newspaper in Europe, the German "Bild", had the title: "The're stealing our money!". So, what do you think about that (not the title but the aspect of giving money to save the economy of poorer countries in Europe)?

I like the fact the EU is helping weaker countries, but i totally dislike there's a high chance they won't be able to pay back! And of course that they must cut back before getting any money. i fear this is the tip of the iceberg and the euro need bigger and bigger cash flows just to keep in the game.

I just hope the Euro continues to plummet till late August so that my holiday will be cheaper.
From what I get about the "crisis", is that, first of all, it changes every couple of days - the stock market indices go drastically down, then after a few days they go back up to where they were, or even higher. Doesn't sound like much of a crisis. And from what I understood, the root of this was the problems in Greece, the need to cut back on (what sounded like absurd) social benefits that cost the state too much money, and the Greek people not wanting to lose those privileges, hence the rioting. And all of the financial aid from other countries is to continue supporting these social benefits in order to subside these riots.
And I don't get what's the problem with Spain and Portugal that popped up all of a sudden. Do they also have a huge national debt due to social benefits?

Yeah, I think, helping weaker countries is what the European Union should, amongst other aspects of course, be about (now, that's a strange and somehow stupid sentence...:) ). Problems start when countries are driven into debts by irresponsible policy, like 14 or 15 monthly wages or an absurdly low retiring age, and when all of this collapses the richer countries are expected to pay for presents that other government gave to their population.

On a sidenote (with regard to another topic): Israel is considering the purchase of large sums of Euros in order to stabilise the currency. :)

I think the main problem lies in two things, firstly the irresponsible financial policy of greece as a country. Knowingly adjusting figures to fit the image of a good balance while the debt just gets bigger and bigger. Not doing anything to change the economical situation without having to result to the heavy cut backs they are forced to do now.
Secondly I think the people at stock exchanges worldwide should think about their actions a bit more, all the financial problems are in part caused by the almost spastic panic that erupts at only the slightes rumor of losing money. These panicked reactions blow a financial bad situation up to financial disasters.

I don't think it's such a bad thing. The euro didn't plummet into a free-fall-scenario, stock-markets didn't collapse, and no countries went bankrupt. So the only thing that happened is that it devaluated when compared to the dollar. That's a good thing. The euro has been over-valued for a long time anyway.

The lower euro means a couple of things:

- Europe is more interesting for tourists than it was some time ago (as Noam pointed out)
- European goods are cheaper for oversea buyers, which means that our export will increase
- Purchases overseas will be more expensive, which means imports will decrease at the expense of domestic purchases, which will also increase.

So all in all, we should be quite pleased with this.

The problems in the medditerenean countries arose because their import was higher than their export, which causes huge debts when mixed with poor monotarian policy. Greece is now under strict supervision from the IMF which gives them a chance to clean up their act. If they can proft from the lower euro as described above and raise their export, they'll be out of debt in a decade or two and the value of the euro can increase again.

In many ways there's nothing special going on, just business cycles dictated by simple economics. Stuff that has been going on for centuries, only now on a larger scale.

I'm all for helping the weaker countries, but the problem with pumping billions into Greece is the following: Many experts already said, it's not possible to help Greece anymore - in the next few years they'll have to pay a fifth (!) of their whole tax revenue only to pay the interest for their credits. It's hard to believe that any country would be able to cope with this: Where does the EUs cheap money they're pumping in ultimately end: To pay the astronomical 9-10 % interest of the big finance companies. It must be allowed to ask whether a national bankruptcy wouldn't be the better decision in that case ...

The funny thing is: The states are even worse overindebted than Europe. The dollar is just still alive because it IS oil (remember the Iraq had plans to trade his oil in Euros 8 years ago?). The whole system sucks. Billions and trillions are sucked out of the real econonmy (give a million to some poor fellas and they'll buy and buy and buy ... give a million to one of the big banks and they won't create any value with it, just moving numbers on the financial markets) and therefore there isn't any more economical growth to pay for the exponentially growing interest debts.

Btw: Greece's problems don't come only from their social system but also from their ridiculous military expentitures. C'mon, 6 % of the BNP? In the modern world?

This reeks of a double standard on behalf of Der Bild. Don't forget that Germany (and France with them) enjoyed a more favourable exchange-rate in relation to their national debt than other European countries during the second half of the nineties. In doing so they were able to write off parts of their debt, which effectively means that they were able to raise their exports easier than, or at the expense of, other countries. Or, to put it in other words, that the rest of Europe was paying for those two countries.

It was to be expected that the tables would turn sooner or later. Once again it's basic Keynsias economics, and nothing to cry crocodile tears about.

I'm not an economic, but I don't think a bankruptcy would have helped. Greece got into problems because they spent more money than they earned, which means that they are in debt with other countries. A bankruptcy would surely settle the debt, but cause a disturbance on the balancing-book of the countries that are creditors. When those countries are denied payment it amounts to a loss of expected income, and such a thing could just as well cause a domino-effect throughout Europe.

There's also the issue of not solving the problem at the core. When Greece files bankruptcy without either increasing their income or decreasing their expenses, they would wind up in the same position within a matter of years. Only that time it would be even harder to get out of it due to a lower trust on behalf of possible creditors.

that's without a doubt true; either way they do have to get a balanced budget

there are two main differences: now, they still have a debt and they do have to pay huge amounts of interests
...and that's not puttin greece in a comfy position

How can a country declare bankruptcy exactly? It's not like its territory gets divided between the countries that it owes debt to.
