However, the cost of borrowing staying high is probably the best medicine to convince these peripheral Eurozone countries (plus Italy) to stop borrowing. And debt and overextended borrowing are hardly liberal concepts, as we know from our debt and borrowing record under Reagan, Bush I and Bush II.

How is more neo-liberalism and more debt a “solution” to anything.

Just like underwater mortgages in the US with no prospect or ever being payable, the time has come for massive write-offs and restructuring the banking system from TBTF to a regulated public utility model.

Enough neoliberal baloney.

He claims Libya will go the way of Iraq, without considering a small population of religously similar tribes. I sort of remember alot of shooting, car bombs and America hole up in the Green Zone in Iraq. His analysis of the EU is also half baked. Missing is the rebuilding of Libya, puffing up Southern European trade and development, as well as the savings Europe increasingly enjoys now from nearly 40% renewable energy.

A welcome relief from the gossip and partisan headlines.
