When you talk about Ai Weiwei you mixed politic and business. Chinese are too pragmatic to equate Ai’s case with geopolitics. For your information Ai was arrested for tax fraud. After his investigation with tax authority, Ai promise to payback whatever he owes to Chinese government. He is free to go, but cannot leave the country until all the money has been paid back.

They have accepted the weak economies and they have been able to live on the work of the strong European economies like Germany, France or Netherlands. The EU had to co-operate with them instead of picking them up in the union, so that those countries could built up their economies alone. It would had allow them to depreciate their currencies during the recession and a lot of pain could have been avoided. Really, there is no logic why Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and the Baltic countries are in the EU. Croatia won’t bring any good either. A country full of bureaucracy, corruption and weak judiciary.

The ECB has now a impossible mission. If Germany continues to grow, inflation will be speeding up, while higher interest rate would hurt the PIIGS. I really cannot imagine how Europe will get out of this mess. If it does in the end, it will be a very painful trip.
