Is Europe Ready to Explode?
By Dieter Benz
As RMS Titanic sank lower and lower into the sea, Captain Edward J. Smith yelled through his megaphone: “It’s every man for himself”.
Europe’s economic troubles are monumental, growing and will not be solved.
The continent is headed for economic collapse, social revolution and a cultural re-do.
Before it’s over European Baby Boomers, reliant upon generous entitlements, benefits and pensions, will be tossed into an icy sea, forced to fend for themselves, like those who failed to secure a seat in one of Titanic’s 16 lifeboats.
RestlessBoomers follows European, Canadian, U.S. and Japanese economic, political and social trends. Europeans, like their American and Japanese counterparts are mostly refusing to react to the hopelessness of their situation, preferring instead to take comfort with the shivering, huddling collective mass of sheep that are about to be sheared.
If you’re going to be one of the survivors, it’s time to take the bull by the horns and find a seat in one of the few remaining lifeboats. While it’s disconcerting and painful to realise that everything you’ve believed for decades is wrong and needs to be tossed overboard, it’s going to be even more painful to continue acting as if everything is going to be OK.
The following podcast discussion with Alasdair Macleod provides the cleanest, most comprehensive articulation of the ‘European economic situation’ we’ve come across in a long while. Please enjoy and profit.
The world is changing. It’s time to join the revolution!
