Spain looks like it will be the next domino to fall in the Eurozone crisis

3 posts / 0 new

Over 100 billion euros have left the country in the first three months of this year – that’s more than a tenth of Spain’s GDP. Fears are growing that just like Greece – Spain will soon need a euro bailout. But unlike Greece – Spain is a huge economy – the fourth biggest in Europe – meaning a bailout would be a lot more expensive – and a default would be catastrophic for the euro.

Meanwhile in Ireland – voters took to the polls to approve a new EU treaty that requires Ireland and other Eurozone nations to meet budget deficit goals through brand new austerity measures. Polls indicate the treaty will likely pass – however results aren’t expected until this evening.

And the European economic cancer will spread to the US.

I hope this doesn't mean that Desigual is going to close.

Why the House of Representatives Doesn’t Represent Americans

One of the really weird ironies of politics these days is the huge divergence between what the American people actually want and what the radical right-wingers in Washington actually do. You won’t hear this on Fox So-Called News, but right now the American people are as progressive as they ever have been.

Don’t believe me? Just check the polls.
