Comments on: Waiting for deus ex ECB http://blogs.reuters.com/james-saft/2011/11/10/waiting-for-deus-ex-ecb/ Tue, 24 Mar 2015 16:54:45 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Jim1648 http://blogs.reuters.com/james-saft/2011/11/10/waiting-for-deus-ex-ecb/comment-page-1/#comment-1002 Tue, 15 Nov 2011 12:51:45 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/james-saft/?p=644#comment-1002 Is it possible that investors and financial columnists engage in short-term thinking? Bailing out anyone does not solve the problem, it only extends it. Unless you have a mechanism that allows for differing growth rates and differing efficiencies, then you are merely applying a patch. One way of providing the foregoing is to allow each country to have its own currency. It is a revolutionary idea that all the human rights activists (including OWS) should take up immediately, unless they can come up with a better one.

Tell them to bring back the D Mark then we will all find out the true cost of a Mercedes .
The US witters about[doubtful]Chinese currency manipulation but nobody criticizes Germany for it’s 10 year home run of currency manipulation that has drained the weaker economies of Europe and created this mess .
Why ?

Capitalism the way it was meant to be.

Investors have understood the difference between political fiscal delinquency and the robustness of the monetary policy of the Euro Monetary Union.

The ECB is not the succouring nipple of last resort for political fiscal delinquents. Instead its the rod across their backs, booted out of government and the cold shoulder from their creditors.

There is help from the Monetary Union for them, if and only if, they buck up their ideas and govern responsibly and with integrity.

The IMF should be handling the European crisis, so increase its firepower and let it do its job.
