Comments on: How to pep up European growth http://blogs.reuters.com/hugo-dixon/2012/02/27/how-to-pep-up-european-growth/ Mon, 18 Apr 2016 14:55:08 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Gordon2352 http://blogs.reuters.com/hugo-dixon/2012/02/27/how-to-pep-up-european-growth/comment-page-1/#comment-216 Wed, 29 Feb 2012 17:26:54 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/hugo-dixon/?p=281#comment-216 “Some way must be found of squaring the circle” is actually an apt analogy, primarily because it has been proven to be mathematically impossible.

(From Wikipedia) “In 1882, the task (of squaring the circle) was proven to be impossible, as a consequence of the Lindemann–Weierstrass theorem which proves that pi (π) is a transcendental, rather than an algebraic irrational number; that is, it is not the root of any polynomial with rational coefficients.”

So will any “European growth” be financially impossible (using the present method of bailing out the banks, that is), since NONE of that money will ever reach any of the economies it needs to help.

I understand what you were trying to say, but perhaps an analogy to trying to “fill a bottomless pit” might have been a better one. But that wouldn’t have fit with the upbeat tone of your misleading article, would it?

– the rotten apple in the barrel

hidden away in the text, the evangelising agenda of the low wage, human-as-donkey, middle class crushing crusader

growth and innovation does not come from debt-fueled, low wage exploitation, or sycophantic pandering to tax-dodging, eu-hating plutocrats
