Mutualize European Debt: Round 12 – “Human Sacrifice, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!”

TweetLet’s finish this once and for all. You do a great job summarizing the dual-mandate (seriously), however I still fail to see how they can influence unemployment, as this really is a function of the free market. Yes, they can encourage lending by lowering the interest rates to zero (or less), but this does not … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 12 – “Human Sacrifice, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!”

Mutualize European Debt: Round 11 “Get to the Chopper!”

Tweet  EAT MY BALLS, Steve. First, yes Europe will mutualize their debt in the near future, or the Euro will fail and Armageddon will rein. Second, there is no case in which a pure austerity plan has worked when not in conjunction with a stimulus plan or some other outside financial windfall. Third, the free … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 11 “Get to the Chopper!”

Mutualize European Debt: Round 10 – Time to Grow Up Dick

TweetIt’s cute that you think Europe will mutualize its debt next month, it really is. You probably also think Palestine will have its own territory by December, Iran will ally with the United States to bring peace in Syria, and that J.K. Rowling is secretly writing another Harry Potter book. Face it Dick, none of … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 10 – Time to Grow Up Dick

Mutualize European Debt: Round 9 “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!”

TweetI am glad to see you are finally agreeing with me, good for you. Next month we will see how mutualizing Europe’s Debt will not only save the Euro but also make all of Europe more economically sound and competitive. Now to what you’re still wrong about, I didn’t say that people wouldn’t balk at … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 9 “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!”

Mutualize European Debt: Round 8 “Do not feed after midnight”

TweetSorry, but you’re insane/unrealistic if you think the only thing keeping the US from merging as one with Canada and Mexico is the lack of economic necessity. Even if the economic necessity did exist, it wouldn’t happen with today’s culture’s. Country’s are far too nationalistic and full of over-embellished nationalistic pride to even consider a drastic … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 8 “Do not feed after midnight”

Mutualize European Debt: Round 7 “Too close for missles, switching to guns”

TweetLike I said, we are starting to agree on things. Now if you could just stop being so short-sighted and wrong about everything else. I don’t believe for a second that cultural barriers prevent any sort of unity in the modern economy. If anything, the European Union and United States has proven that multiculturalism is … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 7 “Too close for missles, switching to guns”

Mutualize European Debt: Round 6 “I let him go”

TweetI can’t disagree with the argument that a unified Europe is better for the world (like I’ve been saying, a unified world would be better for the world, but we have to start small). And I can’t disagree with Merkel either that a unified financial governing system must be in place before they start pooling … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 6 “I let him go”

Mutualize European Debt: Round 4 “Cut Me Mick”

TweetI agree with the Keynesian thinking, particularly when it comes to short-term disasters. But I’m pretty that thinking mostly results with governments giving lots of money to the weak to ride out the storm, and then worry about those consequences later. I don’t think it was to make big banks bigger and smaller countries into … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 4 “Cut Me Mick”

Mutualize European Debt: Round 3 “Sweep the leg!”

Tweet You’re right about the Keynes quote, however his way of thinking in a crisis was to act by not thinking long term. It is government’s responsibility to do whatever is in their power to get the economy moving again. Doing nothing or even worse engaging in contractual austerity plans, uhh Germany, is sacrificing the … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt: Round 3 “Sweep the leg!”

Mutualize European Debt? I Don’t Think So: Round Two

TweetDick, you sound like a man who has truly given up on a global economy. First off, your quote of Keynes, while accurate, is a bit out of context. I’m pretty sure he was referring to long term inflation due to government intervention not being an accurate statement. Second, Alexander Hamilton. Yeah, he got it … Continue reading Mutualize European Debt? I Don’t Think So: Round Two
