That's damn funny
If they think robot balls are non threatening.
The difference is probably more easily explained using cows.
I thought that the standard was to use pigs...
Nope nope, The pigs make the examples the sheep repeat them.
Hold it when corporations merge with government it's fascism
When government merges with corporations it's socialism
Good to have that cleared up, I have never been clear on the difference.
Probably would have been fine if Greece hadn't cooked the books just to get the Euro in the first place
You have to wonder about that. The EU knew they cooked the books and had a helping hand in them doing it.
And yea I am really sure everyone is going to be just clamoring for Greece;s own currency... not.
I have always wanted to see Greece, If they go back to the Drachma that might just happen.
The way I see it - the banks richly deserve this
When it comes to mainland China's jurisprudence there is very little I agree with. There is one thing I think they got very right.
If a bank fails in China, all the directors are subject to the death penalty Their families get billed for the bullets.
Yes. That was 40 years before any talk of the Euro. So what's that got to do with "designing a currency"?
The EU disagrees with you
Winston Churchill calls for a "kind of United States of Europe" in a speech he gives at the University of Zurich.
Perhaps you would like to learn about it ?
Or are you going to say you can have a united states circa 1945 without a national currency ?
Did New York and Detroit benefit equally from the same national monetary and trade policies ?
Probably not, but what's that got to do with "designing" a currency, or Greece?
LOL I have to wonder if you are stupid or trolling ? If you are this dense
Go to town. If you're a troll well at this point I am done feeding you.
In what sense was the Euro designed for an industrial nation? In what sense does that make it unsuitable for a tourism based one?
Man you do realize the EU started out as an agreement on coal and steel trading ?
And does this distinction apply within nations? If I own a hotel in Brighton should I be using a different currency to a factory owner from Birmingham?
Good job constructing a strawman there and trying to sneak it through. Phrasing your question correctly "Does Birmingham and Brighton have the same economic needs at the same time ? "
Now lets answer that with an example and question that has solid contrast. Did New York and Detroit benefit equally from the same national monetary and trade policies ?
All fiat currencies are inflationary, it's something of a design goal, deflation being a greater fear than inflation. A tourist economy isn't likely to be in sync with the industrials in terms of it's particular needs.
Man they rejected the offer on the table
No to the EU austerity measures.
As to who deserves what, I'd say there is plenty of blame to go around for the politicians and bankers on all sides on of this. They can cry in their champagne.
One size doesn't fit all, so it should come as no surprise that a currency made for industrial nations doesn't work so well for a tourist economy.
Bitcoin is hip, it's new, it's not your dads money.
If you use bitcoin you're part of the future not part of the past.
You want to be part of the future, cutting edge don't you ?
That's the fashionable crowd.
For others there is the partially correct impression that bitcoin is much more anonymous than credit/debit cards.
Banker smokes cigar
Send a crooked (redundant ?) lawyer to jail.
Did anyone seriously doubt that psychoactive drugs can and do affect just about all decision making processes ?
