    Krugman explains the melt down in this opinion piece.

    He misses a bit on Greece:

    I'm 100% convinced the GOPtards that talk about "socialist" Europe know nothing about Europe. I come there every year and go to Paris and then to Belgium and Luxemborg and none of these countries are socialist regimes mired in debt.

    Amazing.

    A one line sentence that does nothing to refute anything.

    But carry on.

    Bass...WTF are you talking about? :cuckoo:

    France’s public debt has risen to close to 83 percent of the country’s GDP, France's statistics body says, one day after the government announced cuts in spending to reign in overspending.

    BRUSSELS—Belgium's borrowing costs are rising as high levels of public debt, the continuing political crisis and bailouts for euro-zone peers make investors nervous.

    Belgian public debt will reach 100.2% of gross domestic product this year, according to the International Monetary Fund, the third highest level in the common-currency bloc after Greece and Italy.

    Population of Luxemborg: 497,854 - 2009
    It is 84 kilometers, 51.7 miles long and 52 kilometers, or 32 miles wide

    Thats like the population of Milwaukee, Wi.

    Have you actually traveled to those countries, Meister? Until you have, you don't know what you're talking about. Bass has actually been physically present within their borders, so he/she/it knows everything there is to know about those countries. :eusa_shhh:
