    Europe slidin' into double-dip recession...
    :eek:
    Little sign of Europe's depression lifting
    19 February 2013 - For several months European officials have been basking in the calm of the financial markets. They have fallen over themselves to declare the crisis over.

    And with all their bank failures and failed austerity, they have the temerity to insult the French (no failed banks).

    Sure, Europe is in trouble, as is the US. The refusal to see the world in new ways is condemning all of us to worse and worse conditions. Amazing, isn't it, that all the material aspects of earth that were here before the 'crisis' are still here. It is just the astronomical sums of virtual money that the 'too-big-to-failers' gambled away that changed anything. We collectively share to make up for that.

    Ain't 'socialism' grand (for the major players, of course, not for the plebeians).

    "The third such French bailout in the past year coincides with President Francois Hollande’s push for a European banking union and a common euro-area bank supervisor to break the link between lenders and governments.

    The financial institutions being propped up by the French government have needed help even after they tapped ECB funds.

    “If we had full banking union, the burden wouldn’t be only on French taxpayers,” Mint’s Blain said. “German and other taxpayers would contribute too.” "

    France has always had a 'too big to fail' attitude regarding their banks, they are simply more discreet in these matters.

    True.

    In this instance, it showed to be a better strategy than the British.
