    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Independent Strategy On "Greece The Ungovernable" - "Go short the euro and PIIGS debt — and hold on to your seats!"

Chaos is a Greek word and so are the words, austerity, panic, crisis, catastrophe, strategy, problem, method, scheme, kleptomaniacs, politicians, psychopaths, tyrants as well as economics and history.

In other words, this whole show has been going on with regular repeats for at least 2500 years. Back in Ancient Athens they were suffering a similar level of catastrophic debt burden amongst the people. Instead of hiring PhD economists to solve the problem, they appointed a philosopher for the task. He promptly wrote off whole swathes of debt and everyone got back to business.

Any philosophers out there?

Sure - and what will bring down the whole US/FED/Wall Street/Pentagon/CIA/NWO  cardhouse? What US philosopher will write off US debt - when it all crashes next year?

Or so to say; they were suffering democracy. You got all the symptoms right, but not the disease.

And that guy offering jubilee on debts every 50 years or
so was Moses, but bashing the Old Testament is in vogue for
some centuries now ...

at this moment the markets simply want to hear that there won't be a referendum. either g-pap will step down, or there'll be a no confidence vote on friday leading to new elections. all these results are quite negative, but markets only care about the next 5 minutes, not the next 5 weeks, or even 5 hours for that matter. i' mexpecting a bullish bump in stocks over the next few hours when its realized that no referendum will ever be held. of course, the long-term picture is as horrendous as ever.

They may preemptively vote themselves out of the union, return to the drachma and screw Europe by paying their bonds off US style, with inflated currency.

Maybe the Weimar Republic taught some valuable lessons after all!

From Bloomberg

U.S. banks increased sales of insurance against credit losses to holders of Greek, Portuguese, Irish, Spanish and Italian debt in the first half of 2011, boosting the risk of payouts in the event of defaults.
