What is a mystery to me is why so many Greeks want to stay in the Euro. Austerity is not the problem the problem is that incompetent ECB has has grown NGDP much to slowly.The Greeks need full employment and austerity. Central banks have caused crisis after crisis and the more encompassing the area covered by a currency the worse the central banks are. AND most central banks were started to fund unpopular wars.
Time to try free banking. Could it be worse than central banks? I doubt it.

The unemployment rates may not be biased down in Greece because more people illegally work for cash there than in countries like the Germany and even the USA.

Great video but he seemed not ask any unemployed blue collar workers if they prefer the Dachma to the Euro.

Nonsense always follows the words "the corporations own this country".

+newy219 Some evidence that it is people and not the corporations and that corporations have different often opposing agendas: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2015692

The Euro is a bad idea AND the incompetent ECB made things worse by undershooting their inflation targets. The ECB should run 5% inflation for 5 years. This will enable German prices and wages to rise relative to the PIIGS.

He is tough for me support because although I support legalization of all recreational drugs, I am against their use because people seem to act worse under the influence. That even though I know that some people can handle it and behave well. He seems to quite OK with use. Also I see no reason to support gay marriage at the federal level. Why should 1 of 2 men get a tax break and surviving spouse benefits? I would like for the government to tax individually and get completely out of the marriage business.
But with Rand Paul moving away from libertarian positions I may end up supporting him anyway because the war of drugs it taking a huge toll in Latin America and here.

The decision makers in Europe seem to believe in a sort of blank slate of nations.
