Second Leg Of A Global Bankruptcy

As much as Euro project is dead, there are another cracks in the global financial meltdown that started in 3rd quarter of 2008.

Bloomberg, the leading financial news provider, gets it right and in a plain language:

There will be a lot of grand rhetoric about the importance of the European project. Stern condemnations of the speculators will ring out across the continent.

Don’t listen to a word of it. The euro has turned into a bankruptcy machine. Once the markets have finished with Ireland, they will simply move on to Portugal and Spain, and after that to Italy and France.

There is a domino effect at work, and, with each rescue, the fault lines within the euro grow wider and wider. This process isn’t going to stop until the euro is taken apart.

Dear readers, I'll have to say this - Frankfurt now leads the main role in the finances and Germany got deserved satisfaction that Frankfurt was right from the start. In that name, I'll eat Frankfurt wurst , cheers !
