"Lone hermit"??? What the hell are you talking about? Are you freaking kidding me about China? You are a rambling editorial fool. EU remains a trading power...<quoted text>
Here you are partially correct. Sweden does have concerns for the failure of the EU. No doubt as does the rest of the world. What happens will have ripple effects to all financial institutions. Some more sever than others. Keep in mind that the EU is not supreme player in the Liberal International Free Trade Markets. There lost will be assimilated by outside competitors such as the Asian Markets, Indo China, China, Japan etc. to make a profit from their lost. They will require to reorganize to get back into the Markets for competition, to progress. Perhaps they will identify austerity as a major contributor to their failure and will take appropriate action or not. Austerity will be the measure by which will determine their survival. Orthodox Communism discovered their flaw of inability to compete in the Liberal International Free Trade Markets and have taken steps to remedy that. EU’s austerity will have to do the same or face further regression in their world status.
AS to the rest of your comment on distribution of inequality. I have provided numbers that would benefit, yes even the lone hermit in the woods, if inequality were to be more justified in its distributions. Now I will provide a video chart which may be more helpful in comprehending inequality as it is presently within the USA. We take care of that problem and the might of the USA would be undisputable through out the world and its Free Markets. Yes even here in the USA Austerity has taken its toll. Diminishing our strengths to compete effectively.
