What price the new democracy? Goldman Sachs conquers Europe - Business Analysis & Features - Business - The Independent

Quote:
By imposing rule by unelected technocrats, it has suspended the normal rules of democracy, and maybe democracy itself. And by putting a senior adviser at Goldman Sachs in charge of a Western nation, it has taken to new heights the political power of an investment bank that you might have thought was prohibitively politically toxic.
Democracy has become a label to describe a form of slavery. Shame, it was such a nice idea.

Seems like the Eurozone may crash with or without Goldman Sucks' help. And good riddance. Moving there after currency(s) have devalued W.R.T. the dollar would represent a giant fire sale for me.

Wasn't GS involved in under reporting the debt balance in Ireland and Greece years ago?

Really? The concentration of wealth and power has coincided with a decidedly lousy economy around the world and yet you see this information as just some sort of conspiracy theory? That seems like a serious misreading of the situation.

I'll bet your spending your allowance on all those "How To Profit From The Coming Crash" books, eh?
