Bernard de Mandeville laid it all out for you, and your guy Smith (actually a Scot, lent to you since your lot couldn’t seem to sort it out on their own) ran with it. Private vices, public benefits.

The frog banks are family run chaebols, there may still be a Krupp or Thyssen on the payroll (and maybe even showing up at the office). Non-Soviet Europe papered over the aristocracy thing with social benefits, largely paid for by shifting their defense costs to the U.S.

We lack in Europe of a high graduate certificate in Europeean affairs which garantee a bigger independance of the lobbies for the people in charge of our future. French school ENA came in Stasburg but is not european and the school of management INSEAD t Fontainbleau is not an European school too. Likely has this man Rajoy takes black cash because he never imagine that he would have to face the judgement of its partners of Brussel.

Let’s hope the “elite” remembers the uncontrolled, bloody chaos which ensued.
We truly, absolutely, totally DON’T want that!
Foremost should be stimulas, employment, integrity, “boredom”, and innovation! Otherwise we’ll have more real life soap-operas playing than we have on cable!
