Yes, which is why I believe it was in the EU's interest to make sure their debt was sustainable instead of trying to crush them.

Unless Germany and the EU can actually come up with a deal that helps these countries, the EU is fucked, I'm sorry. Greece is tiny in the EU, but Spain and Italy are not.

A friendly reminder that since the political union and the euro, we have been closer than ever to war with Russia, and civil war within countries that could and should have been relatively stable.

The EU originally was a tool for peace and unity, now it is a tool for subversion and manipulation. There is no democratic component for most of the leadership. A very flawed method of democracy only decides whether certain bills should be passed, it cannot design new bills or policy directions. Unless that component changes, I really don't think the Union will last long, and unfortunately I do believe it will end with a fair amount of violence, as we are seeing in Greece now

Historically, Russia was able to conquer the entire continent without resistance: this was Stalin's plan, and Churchill knew something was fucky and proposed an early strike to Russia the day after the German defeat, but he desisted when realized how much stronk were the Russians and in comparison how weak were the European countries. Without the help from all the Allies and the will to unite Europe things could have been much different.

Anyway, I strongly believe in a political union for the EU, in which every country give some of its power to a "federal government" (not only the control of a central bank and some bullshits for UNI laws). I believe in a system similar to the US one, perhaps less restrictive, in which matters of foreign policies, monetary management, financial activity, military operations and army/air force/navy constitutions, and the like, are responsibility of ONE government whose goal will be to ensure the maximum results for all the members.

The only solution that has worked in previous debt crisis is default. Argentina in 2003 did that, and it worked really well, contrary to what was previously said would happen.

In this case, I don't think default is the only answer as Greece supposedly has much more of a network to help it out in terms of stimulus, debt repayment, etc. However instead of doing any of this, the country was forced to take a ridiculous policy approach.

Poltical economy is counter-intuitive in that sense, because, while i don't actualy believe that stimulus is a reliable means of relieving depression or recession, balancing budgets is a very reliable means of worsening it

The problem here is that Greece is not an island. On the contrary, its economy is tightly connected to all of the other EU countries, so they can't do whatever they want. Other EU members surely can afford to lose the money lent to Greece, but they can't allow this to happen because that would be the END of the EU.
And I, being an enthusiast Eurofag, am absolutely terrified for that to happen.

A friendly reminder of those times when Europe was disunited: war, war, war, more wars, racism, wars, colonialism, some more war, revolutions, civil wars, more civil unrest, revolts, attacks from outside the continent, wars, poverty for the majority, wealth for very few, wars, medieval era, dominations of the weak countries, and 2 World War, not 3 because EUROPE WAS UNITED!

They definitely did! They were forced to in all of the last bailouts!! The thing is if you have austerity in the middle of a crisis, that cuts everyone's income by a lot and massively reduces your tax revenue. If this was not a recession it would work, but this is worse than the Great Depression in America. If in those days, instead of the public works, the government was told it had to tax more and provide less unemployment benefits, what do you think would have happened?
User avatar #124 - figosound (07/19/2015) [-]
I pointed the problem, and said nothing about the solution. I agree that in times of recession, like history show us, the state have to spend more, and I think that the actual proposed solution, austerity, is a dead end. But first the ill one have to put himself on the right path.
