And unless he is simply too afraid to put down his thoughts in writing, he seems to be in the strange habit of leaving most of his thoughts unfinished, most obviously when discussing what the Germans are using the crisis as leverage for. Do they really want to “drive down labor costs in the periphery” (that wonderful euphemism for inducing depressions and creating societies of wage slaves), when they also need those wage slaves to have high enough wages to buy german exports?
