    The champion of a moderate stimulus plan for Europe, at home French President Francois Hollande is turning his back on the sort of infrastructure investment he hopes will revive European growth.

    His cash-strapped Socialist government is considering scrapping all but the most needed projects as it is forced to weigh questionable economic benefits in an era of belt-tightening.

    Likely because we have no ‘socialists.’

    The first dominoes to fall were home loans. The next dominoes to fall were sovereign loans. Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal. Soon, France. Other dominoes to fall; municipal loans, corporate loans, college loans.

    All brought you to by the global financial community and the derivatives bubble.

    Well done, boys. Well done. Here are your bonuses. See you on the golf course in the Caymans.
