That means a single economy that is good for all. That requires Europe wide business laws and courts. The schools teaching the same idea of public good and what is graft. I am sure in some parts of Europe someone not taking care of his extended family at public expense if had the power is bad, in other parts just a honest person. For the nations to be at same economic stage they would need workers with about the same education level and health. If not at the same economic stage they need different monetary fiscal policies.

Better they walk out of euro and kill it. UK had a circus with the queen still trying to attract FUNDS, yuck. Olympics and euro are atleast better money pullers. Problem is UK and germany want money for NOTHING, and thats gone. Wonder what magic persuaded the stupid greeks and spaniards to give up their independence for the euro. I mean you live off your work and look at all gift carriers with a mite in the eye. But greeks bought german gifts and now should go out without a whimper. They are finished. Maybe china will own greece tomorrow, picking it up pretty cheap.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there is still no complete accounting of each bank’s off balance sheet liabilites. And yes, US banks and insurance companies have their hands in the mess too. A Greek exit and/or default will shed light on this steaming pile and will precipitate an unhappy chain of events. Can’t blame people for grabbing their cash while they still can.
